A Review by Prof. C. D. Thorpe.
The appearance each year of the
initial number of a college maga-
zine like THE INLANDER is an
event of importance. It may, in a
sense, be regarded as the literary
pulse of the campus, indicating a
state ofhealth or disease as the
case may be. If one were to exam-
ine the present issue of THE IN-
LANDER as such a pulse, he would
find a somewhat uneven condition,
a rapid, full beat alternating with
a stronger, steadier flow, and ar
occasional unsteady, jerky move-
ment in between. The rapidity.
however, is the result of exertiorL
and excitement rather than of
disease, and even the unsteadiness
is to be traced less to fever thar
to breathless pursuit of choser
leaders who have just managed tc

youth, with some very gratifying
indications of vigorous maturity.
Quite the most mature, hence the
most satisfactory things in the
magazine are Mr. Gorman's analy-

NEW YORK: by Paul Morand.
Henry Holt & Co. New York City.
Translated by Hamish Miles. Re-
view copy by courtesy of Wahr
Book Store. Price, $2.50.
Some one has said that New York
is our friendliest sister-republic. M.
Morand carefully draws this same
distinction between New York City
and the remainder (one might say
residue) of America. But M. Morand
leaves dubious the amount of affec-
tion he feels for all Americans,
including New Yorkers. This is
really a peculiar state of mind, for
on the one hand he dissociates
New York from America and pro-
fesses a genuine fondness and
admiration for its civilization; on
the other hand he cannot make up
as mind as to his attitude toward
,he personalities creating the civil-
zation. The matter really worries
him here and there throughout the
gook. But his indecision is difficult
to account for. Surely if he likes-
New York culture and dislikes that
of the hinterland it seems only
reasonable thatahe should like New
Yorkers. The only reason I bring
this up is that M. Morand is act-
ually perplexed about the matter;
mut I dare say that logic is the
only impression an impressionist
fails to recognize.
M. Morand, as many people know,
.s a Frenchman living in France.
dIis knowledge of New York and
(the "and" is out of deference to
him) America is the result of four
visits made between 1925 and 1929,
.he longest being one of about two
months' duration. It is, from one
joint of view, fortunate that his
risits were not frequent and for
onger periods of time. New York
ias the happy (M. Morand cannot
Jecide whether it is happy or un-
iappy) faculty of assimilating na-
donality and making New Yorkers
A one. Had M. Morand been a New
Yorker, his point of view would not
aave been so perspicacious. He
vould have lacked the freshness of
approach necessary for a good
,ravel book. But there are many
,ravel books.
From another point of view it
vould have been better, granting
,he adequate supply of so-called
gravel books, had M. Morand writ-
ten without the alien's outlook. His
Book then could have been more
justly critical. And had M. Morand,
uhe Frenchman, read such a book
written by a mythical M. Morand,
the New Yorker, he would better
:inderstand the people who create
the culture he admires.
Because every book on America,
ncluding New York, tells of the
irgent crowds, the restless spirit,
;he hard vet naive temper, the
owering office and apartment
>uildings, it would be pleasing if
some one some timne attempted to
educe all these ndices of our
ivilization to basic causes: why we
.ave skyscrapers, why we hurry,
why we are hard, and so on. 11.
V!orand, in endeavoring to explain
,he reason of the skyscraper offers
nly the suggestion that they are
uhe shrines of Success, and that
hey aspire heavenward with both
nystic and economic yearning, and
,hat the modern man approves of
ahem as did the Greeks of the
?arthenon. But then, as we sug-
rested above, perelaps M. Morand
.s interested primarily in impres-
sions and not in ethnology.
We can, however, thank him for
a witty, really intelligent sketch
of our metropolis. We can also

thank him for shunning such
phrases as "the best in the world,"
'Wall Street, the Meca of Money,'
and "skyscrapers, the donjons of
the new feudalism." L. R. K.
