Author's Late Re
to Religion.


"Tolstoy, at the time he wrotej
"My Confession," was at the prime
of an extraordinarily vigorous and
healthy life," was the statement of
Prof. H: Y. McClusky of the Educa-
tion school in a talk yesterday aft-
ernoon on the book which is fre-
quently regarded as the best biog-
raphy of the great Russian novelist.
The fact of Tolstoy's vigor at the

time he wrote the work, Professor
McClusky cited as a refutation of
the theory that it was the influ -
ence of " approaching senescence
that caused the radical change in
views and habits that were evi-
denced by this book as compareil
with his former works.
Held Views From Youth.
Professor McClusky further point-
ed out that the viewpoint express-
ed was not as extreme a change
as might be thought from the text
of the novelist's former works, but
that in reality it was that which
he had long suppressed in his de-
┬žire to follow the mode of his day,
and it was this final view, never
shown until later life after the in-
sincerity and folly of the ways of
his fellows had become apparent
that was the true expression of Tol-
stoy's nature and' thoughts.
Quoting excerpts from the book
itself and from commentaries on
it, Professor McClusky showed that
even at the height of Tolstoy's
rather wild and impetuous career,
that characterized his youth, a
wish for some other mode of life
than that about him was present
all the time, although he repressed
it in order to retain his position in
the society of the time.
Judged Self Harshly.
Professor McClusky in the course
of the lecture read short passages
from "My Confession" and gave a1
short resume of its contents which1
showed that it was indeed a biog-
raphy of the most intimate sort in
which the writer spared himself
less than some other biographer
would most likely have done.
Professor McClusky concluded by
stating that for physical and men-
tal vigor in his life Tolstoy was out-
standing as was evidenced by the
fact that in his desire towards the
end of his life to mingle more with
the peasant classes about his es-
tate, and to enter into their ways
6f living and their games and
sports, he not infrequently showed
himself their equal and superior in
physical activity even at an ad-
vanced time of life, and never up
to his last days showed any sign
of failing mental health.
The lecture, which was well at-
tended, was sponsored by the Tol-
stoy League as one of a series given
this year by that group.

Andrew W. Mellon, secretary o: the treasury since 1921, was pho-

he said he had no intention of retiring for severa. years. Today he is

Missouri Inmates Stage Another
Mutiny Following Rebellion
Yesterday Over Food.

jmorning, following a food mutiny
yesterday by 750 convicts in the
dining hall.
The rebellion followed a demon-
stration by 750 convicts in the peni-
tentiary dining hall yesterday
against the kind of food served
them. They mutinied for two hours,
refusing to leave tne hall, but
finally were quieted by Warden
Leslie Rudolph, who promised a
better menu, and announced later
that the trouble was ended.
Approximately 150 men on one
floor of the chair factory refused
to start work after breakfact and
several of them demanded less
work and better food. Warden Ru-
dolph entered the factory and told
the men they would either work or
go back to their cells.
About 60 still refused to work and
they were taken to "I" hall and
locked up. Warden Rudolph, in a
statement after the strike, said he
Ihad done as much as he could and
if "any trouble is bound to come,
the prison organization will meet
it accordingly."

City Buried Under 19.2 Inches
of Snow After Heavy
Two-Day Storm.
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, March 27.-The snow
had ended today, but the slush and
drifts lingered on.
The snow stopped Wednesday
night as suddenly and as unex-
pectedly as it started Tuesday
morning, leaving Chicago and its
suburbs shrouded in the heaviest
continuous fall in the city's his-
tory-19.2 inches.
Although the city was no longer
faced with the necessity of fighting
more snow, it had by no means
coped with what it already had.
Traffic still was delayed and in
some case paralyzed, schools were
still dismissed and streets and side-
walks clogged with snow.
Along the lake front and in other
places where the wind was given
a chance at the snow, drifts were
piled high and held hundreds of
automobiles fast. In the more con-
gested districts the snow had turn-
ed into a dark slush, ankle deep
at most intersections.
Street car lines, hardest hit of
the transportation systems, were
able to serve customers on most of
the main routes but were far from
normal and were not even attempt-
ing to run on many of the branch
lines. Twenty thousand men and
250 pieces of machinery worked all
night attempting to clear the rails.
Fifteen hundred street cars were
reported stalled, most of them still
manned by their crews who have
been forced to keep a continuous
watch for two days in order to be
able to move on in case the way is
cleared. On some of the side streets
ti, crews were replaced by watch-
Other transportation lines were
more fortunate, with the elevated
and suburban railways not only
maintaining their usual service but
carrying the added burden of per-
sons unable to get to work on street
cars or by automobile. Busses, un-
able to travel on many streets since
the storm started, began to pick
up their customers again today.
Moving pictures rented from a Chi-
cago firm are to be given every
Saturday night in the Union build-
ing. The Union is also sponsoring
