Pesky RevolittIiolists Out To
Start Trouble For Historians
By MARSHALL D. SIULMAN
Revolutions, says Prof. eston W.
Slosson ,of the hist.ory 6je1 t n,'
are darn disgusting things.
The world today is like an in rac -
able photographer's subject, who re-
fuses to hold still long for~h j
the camera to click. Befor e he ink has
dried on the most up-to-date his-
tory book, somebody over in Spain, or
Jugoslavia, or somewhere starts a
revolution, putting the bok out of
date, and sending overworked histor-
ians to dip their pens in the inkwell
for a new start.
Especially today, thinks Professor
Slosson, when changes of adminis-
istration in Spain, strikes -in Havana,
and the assassination of the Jugo-
slavian king opens a long series of
disturbances in a Europe already
racked with suspicion, armed forces.
and political intrigue, it is difficult.
But what seems to irk him most,
is that Professor Slosson has under
