Pasadena, Calif., Dec. 18.-Pasadena
expects no fewer than 500,000 people
to attend the 32nd annual Tournament)
of Roses here New Year's day. The
estimate of attendance is based upont
earlier tournaments which have showni
a steadily mounting number of vis-
itors.
In the morniirg procession of flowers
the number of entrants will be greatly
in excess of 100, and thousands will
line the streets on the line of march.,
The afternoon football game between
the University of California arld Ohio

Another of those delightfully foolish
volumes by Stephen Leacock has ar-
rived, this time under the title of
"Winsome Winnie and Other Nonsense
Novels." Once more the jolly, red-
haired, round-shouldered professor'
with the merry twinkle in his eye has
laid his stage with its mock scenery,
set out his puppets, and pulled the
strings that make the mannikins go
through a series of the customaryj
droll parodies on present-day fiction I
as~ it appears in the most highly ap-
proved parlor magazines.
The new program consists of seven
numbers: the conventional heiress
story; the typical women's page cir-
culation-increaser, "John and I; or
How 1 Nearly Lost My Husband;" the
bewhiskered political story; a master-
thief, master-detective thriller; the
desert island episode; the war narra-
tive with the omnipresent hero; and
the old familiar ghost story with its
well-calculated thrills-all reduced to
absurdity in the typical Leacockian
manner.
What if the book does lack some of
the freshness and spontaneity of the
earlier "Nonsense Novels?" What if,
where we once laughed out-loud, we
now merely chuckle to ourselves?
"Winsome Winnie" is burlesque of the
best kind, clever mockery that leaves
no sting. Professor Leacock is still
