Following Michigan's victory over
Harvard several Eastern sportswri-
ters took occasion to deprecate th
skill and power of the Michigan
eleven and attribute the defeat of
a better Harvard team to "the
breaks of the game." For a mom-
ent we had it in mind to wax indig-
iant over thi "reach of trood taste

tions about Harvard, Harvard men,
and Harvard football. It has shown
us that Harvard's private reaction
to the game was as fine as the
brand of football they showed on
the field. It makes us proud to
have played them. We want to
play them frequently in the future,
and thereby learn to know them

Again creating in his special and
unenvied field of romantic egotism,
Mr. Halliburton has produced an-
other volume of favorable com-
ments on his invincible courage in
the face of superhuman obstacles,
tremendous avidity for the elusive
and often dangerous truth, and no-
ble perseverance in the self-impos-
ed task of recreating the high-spots
of tropical American history for a
forgetful, mundane, and there ra-
ther-to-be-despised body of read-
ers. As it stands, the thing is facile

Lne essence of Mr. Hialiburton, is
insulting to most of us who haven't
the outlook of a Princetonian gone
sufficiently haywire to jump into 1
sacred death pools and swim
through the Panama locks on a.
tonnage basis.
The puzzling feature of the vol-
ume is its seeming seriousness in
the face of foolishness. On occa-
sions the author raises to heights of
ridiculous naivete and whimsical
invention which we are forced to
like almost as much as he does.
There can be no doubt that he has j
done a lot of worthless but amus-
ing things that are good stuff for
yarn-spinning, and that gain much
in the skillful telling thereof. But
through it all the emotional Mr.
Halliburton seems to have hypno-
tized himself into believing that he
is a hero inspired to recapture for
the world its lost romance. He
moves outside of himself, scarcely
able to comprehend the greatness
of his own feats. He makes of him-
self an extremely uncomfortable
martyr, ostensibly for the sake of
his cause, in reality for the sake
of publicity. If its red hot flow of
romanticism and self-adulation is
sprayed with the fire hose of rea-
son, Mr. Halliburton's new book
looks like a charred flake smeared
in a big wet drop.
Persoiially we have a Weak ti j
for :fetion and rather enjoy a Louch
of romance. There is also an im-
portant place in the literary schemc
for adventure and biography. His-
tory is another admirable field for
the csholar-writer. Publicity is a,
rather less honorable employment
for the pen-it smacks more of
journalism than authorship-- but
in this practcal, prosaic world it
serves sonic sore of a useful end,
and is not utterly to be. despised.
Lastly, tastes in style differ, but
most of us in our reading have sen-
suous moments when we cats en-
joy a little purple turgidity: even
a description of Mexican mnoun-
tains as "unearthly, imnuaciAte
poems of grace and .snowv and vio-
let mystery." But it is impossible
to be so charitable toward a spec-
ious hash of history and fiction and
romantic, adventurous autobiogra-
phy, shot through with enough ego
to reduce it to propaganda, and
communicated with all the fervor
and bombast of an extemporaneous
prayer or a minor poet in alcoholic
raptures over a purple cow.

Georges Clemenceau, the French
war-time premier, who died at his
home in Paris during the past
week, had published a short time
before his death, "In the Evening
of My Thoughts," a collection of
essays on almost every branch of
human thought. The book con-
tains discussions on psychology, an-
thropology, paleontology, astrono-
my, politics, religion, metaphysics.
and literature. He had no use
whatsoever for religion, especially
Christianity, and put all his trust
in science. "God," he says in one I
of the essays, "is nothing but a
word bearing no relation to fact...
. ... Experimental truth is establish-
ed as the only criterion of truth."
In another place, he points out:
"Life is the implacable law which
requires us to atone for our emo-
tional pleasures. . . . nevertheless,
there is a tremendous drama in it,
and the better we understand it the
more enjoyable is the spectacle,"
A short time before his death,
the Tiger, firm in his ideals, said:
"I am eighty-six years old and I
am nearing the end. I approach
the portals of death and I see be-
fore me the Angel with his trum-
