turism, spiritualists, and mitral re-
gurgitation. The old stock is simply
being obliterated with race suicide,
neo-thought, and the era of rush and
bustle. And amid this sad scene the
last Forsyte gets a lesion of the left
ventricle-or was it an aneurism-
gives a few spasmodic kicks and bites
the dust.
But Galsworthy has relieved the
tedium by giving us a delightful and
pitiful love affair between boy and
girl. Of course it's asinine, but so
are all love affairs, mine among the
rest. There is a burst of romantic.
fireworks, pink and blue lights,
purple pinwheels, and then a realis-
tic darkness. The last Roman candle
has fizzed and love's young dream has
come a cropper.
And all the while the spooks of the
Forsyte family stand in the back-
ground and groan. Indeed, a feud
between the fathers of the boy and
girl is responsible for the final
muddle and the breaking off. The
little English Eurydice is obliged to
find another Orpheus-with money
and a title.
The girl is really lovely. True, she
takes cigarettes and strong coffee,
but she has a beauty and an engaging
candor all her own. The boy, alacka-
day! is a poetic sort with no idea that
love is the agency of propagation.
Galsworthy does the situation justice.
But he hits the stride that makes
him a seven-league booted writer
when he throws his light on the re-
strictions forced by conventions and
the resulting tragedies which are sup-
erimposed upon the tragedy of ex-
stence. The hypocrisy which broke
up two families results in an enmity
that takes its spleen out on the pro-
geny. So love takes to the morgue.
Perhaps Galsworthy approaches
Smelodrama and John Fox Jr., in de-
picting the feud, but I think not, The
thing comes naturally enough. It In-
volves on man taking another man's
wife. Don't be shocked. It is all
done to ritual, court, crackling papers,
candelabra, and the sonorousness of
a reversed collar.
Undying love on the part of the hus-
band! Here Galsworthy falls into a
lamentable error. The poor fellow re-
marries but languishes with sad eyes
until-well, he is sad yet! Har har!
My snuffle turns into a snicker Why
doesn't Galsworthy say that the man's
pride was hurt because another man
I won his wife's love. Does Galsworthy
prefer to believe that love lives on
forever? If he does he is-but name
him yourself!

they had been forced to depend on
magazine stories and the movies for
their ideas on sea life. The romance
and the mystery of the deep was
theirs to discover. When one chap
returned from abroad he was asked
to tell of his impressions as to the
subtle charm of the ocean and its
shipping. He replied that as far as
he could find out, the only "subtle
charm" of a ship at sea was doggone
hard work and that he couldn't see
anything charming about that!
