EASTERN THOUGHTi
IN EASTERN IDIOM.
Winds of Gobi, by Robert Hyde.
Brewer and Warren, N. Y. C.
Price $1.75.
From the rocks and sand, the
winds and cold of the Gobi desert, !
digging grond of Roy Chapman
Andrews, comes this collection of
prose etchings by Robert Hyde. The
dirt and cruelty of primitive life,
the stolid superstition of yellow-
clad lilamas, are illustrated by
flashes of beauty from the jewel in
the heart of the lotus. Mr. Hyde has
an outstanding heart for the phil-
osophy of life of a people alien to
Western standards. Quite the most
craftsmanlike phase of the work
lies in the idiom. It would be fatal
to employ Western speech to the!
expression of Eastern ideals and
view-points, out of which spring
manners and customs, somewhat
like using a cleaver to dissect a
humming bird. Eastern habit of
thought is expressed in Eastern
habit of speech. To fix this on the
printed page that the unusual may
be appropriately garbed is the
craftsman's job. However, the
note of the unusual' lies only in
this, for fundamental human emo-
tions are common to all life.

GRIM YOUTH,
BY JOHN HELD, JR.
The May selection of the Book
League Monthly is John Held, Jr.'s
new book called Grim Youth. The
volume, which will be printed by
the Vanguard Press, is collection o
short stories. They will, of course,
be properly embellished with- wood
cuts drawn by the author. The
stories themselves are reported to
be sophisticated tales of modern
youth. Quite probably ' they are
good, too because the Book League
Monthly, beginning with the publi-
cation of Joe Pete, a novel by
Florence McGlinchey, has success-
fully maintained the difficult task
of presenting important books to
its subscibers each month. The
present volume will contain an in-
troduction by Gamaliel Bradford
biographer and historian.

BETER YET FROM
MODERN LIBRARY.
The recent news that The Mod-_
ern Library has absorbed the Sun
Dial Library of Doubleday, Doran
& Ca., assures the thousands of
contented' customers of the first-
mentioned firm of even better op-
portunities in the offing. The sale:
was a straight cash transaction
and which assures the purchasers
the right to reissue the entire Sun
Dial. set is the Modern Library edi-
ition.
At prisefit the Library lists 175
titles at ninety-five cents each.
The firm was established 12 years
ago with the publication of Oscar
Wilde's "Dorian Gray." Within 7
years the list had grown to 100. In
1895 the establishment underwent
a change of management and even
more expensive volumes were ad-
ded to the list and printed in the.
Library format.
The addition of the Sun Dial
books will add such authors as
Conrad, Maighm, Huxley, Bennett,
Walpole, and McFee.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF
A NEW POETRY MAGAZINE.

The Poetry Journal, a new pub-
lication that will cater to the needs
of unheralded poets, announces its
arrival. The editorial office ;of
this concern are in Chicago, 192
North Clark street. They are par-
ticularly interested in the young l
poet. They specialize in short
verse, although monthly there will
be one or two long poems used.
Humorous verse of general appeal
can be used. All contributions will
be paid =for upon publication.
Endeavors such as this should
and must be encouraged. The
youthful poet today has precious
few vehicles for expression; that
is, precious few that will accept
anything except by recognized
writers.

"II

When Small Machines'

MORAL NECESSITY?

Were Big,

1,

It is somewhat irritating, even
exasperating, to read the attempt
of former president Clarence Cook
Little in his volume called The
Awakening College to justify the
enforcement of an automobile 'ban
on a college campus. It is not only
because the projected reasons are
illogical but because they are en-
tirely emotional; and because Dr.
Little elsewhere in his book al-
most virulently berates emotive
causation they are doubly illogi-
cal. And then too the theory ex-
pounded in the book calls for fur-
ther vigorous objection in view of
the fact that the author is. the
father of the ban on this campus
and all the tradition that has
sprung up because of the ban herel
traces back to him.
And really, when all the extra-
neous quibbling is left out of the
.discussion, the fundamental ob-
jection to the ban isnot to the
ban per se but to the tradition
that attaches itself to it. This, of
course, needs explanation. The
question of the right to enforce)
automobile regulations on a col-I
lege campus is not a legal question;
it should not be even a disciplinary
question. First and always it is an
ethical problem: a question of val-
ues. And now we are back to the
part Dr.=Little played in the prob-
lem. The question here to ask is,
when Dr. Little induced the ban
at Michigan, what code, what the-
ory of values motivated his action?
Was it real necessity or was it mere
expediency? The answer, natural-
ly, is to be found in his comments
on the ban in his writings and
speeches. The real answer must
be abstracted,- for he must have
realized that to objectify his views
would have been fatal, at least for1
permanent record, since the cool-I
ing effect of time is so disastrous
to ideas born of emotion.
The answer is bound up incon-
gruously enough with his theory of
youth, which is a great part of the
