BOOKS WORTH READING
THE PILLAR OF FIRE.-Seymour
Deming.
Dubbing the American university
"A Museum of Mumified Hobbies,"
Mr. Deming in his latest book con-
ducts a searching analysis into the
p)resent state of our institutions of
"higher learning." The college, he
says. is abjectly subservient to the in-
terests of Capital and the well-to-do
classes, for to them it must look for
the means. of subsistence.
Mr. imin has been attractiu z
considerable attention to himself the
last year or so for a certain kind of
revolutionary thinking. As a stimu-
lative and pertinent discussion of the
function of the university, this book,
perhaps, serves its purpose. The
method is vigorous, it abounds{
in clever satire, the thought is
clearly put, and the style is admir-
able. But after all it should not be
taken too seriously. It is primarily
propaganda.
