JORG~ENSEN by Tristram Tupper;
Philadelphia, J. 11. Lippicott: $2.00
With the number of nvelists at pres-
ent turnilng out hooks there is apt to
be a dead level struck, but "Jorgen-
sen" rises above such criticism. The
writing here is clear, hard, with
events presented in broad strokes,
writing that is always in command of
its material. The story sets out with
Jorgensen, "a mere shell of a man"
and brings hint hack to life through
his conquest of a mountain, outward
engineering conquest, inward spiritual
conquest. There are great heightS
achieved but the defects are so seri-
ous as to make one feel the imper-
manence of the wiork.

enough that we might excuse some of
the others. The b)00k would be high-,
ly worth reading if only for the
strength of its writing.{

Bei e en eetd b h kof the Month club as one of the best .
novels of the month, it also is listit-i-
guished by the fact that it is Esther
Forbes' first extensive flight into lit-
prature. For the milieu of this ex-
ploit the author htas chosen that period
of American life which the blurb re-
fers to as "the dlays of stay.an
hustles, of hoopm skirts andl crinolines."
The treatment of this period usuallyi
is one of two sorts: either a kindly
spirit of ridicule is adopted or the ges- .
lure is a very -modern sneer at thet'"
narrow foibles and customs of yester-
year. Miss Forbes, revealing a per-
spicuity pierhtaps more discerning than .~
either of these, imagines the age, i
the fundamentals, as very similar to , .
thte present. La nice Bardecen, the
genteel lady and the heroine of the
book, is graced with much the same? Sylvia Thtompson, above, author of
inhibitions, repressions and animal "Hounds of Spring," a best seller in

Jorgensen has escaped from a peni-
tentiary to come back to the conquest
of Black mountain which he started
but which is in other and ineffectual
hands. He is at home on the moun-
tain but he is in dlanger. He stays.
First as the shadow of the reservation
engineer and then as the recognized
director of the reservation he carries
on the work of tunneling the moun-
tain.Fiis position is mtagnificient, al-
most inhuman like a putppeteer, he
lifts his hands and the tunitel pro-
gresses. The handling of the con-
struction work is one of the most
successful elements of Mr. Tupper's
writing. His use of the chanty,
"Muckin' cars is runni' " creates a
powerful effect not easily forgotten.
The greatest single passage in the
book is the one in which we have a
graphic picture of Jim Hart, station-
ary engineer, working the conttrols of
bils donkey engine with his eyes on
the end of the boom high in the air
and bringing up safely three loads of
men in five minutes front the bottom
of a caving shaft.
The chief defect lies in the fact
that although the writing moves with
the precision of the work on the tun-
nel it fails to make its characters
convincing. We cannot, as in Norris'
"Pig Iron", for example, where the
characters plod, yet are memorable,
be sure of Jorgensen, or Ellen and
certainly not of any ntinor charact ers.
