of the executive staff.
The three winning teams in this

Display In Library
Features Volumes,
Prints OfCarlyle
An extensive display comprising
half a hundred volumes and a few
prints taken from the 600 items ofj
the Samuel Jones Gargoyle collec-;
tion in the possession of the Univer-
sity has been arranged in the front
corridor of the Main Library.
"Sartor Resartus," Carlyle's sol-
emn nineteenth century satire of
English society, appears in the ex-
hibit in four or five editions, one of
them printed in a limited number of
copies for distribution among Car-
lyle's personal friends. The essay
first appeared in Frazier's Magazine
in 1833.
Though Carlyle's pen produced a
few works which became popular,
the author's fame rests substantially
on his voluminous scholarly works
and political writings. Over a period
of ten years or more he gathered
material from hundreds of volumes
to produce his History of Frederich
II of Prussia. He spent as much time
in preparation of his History of the
French Revolution. First editions of
both these works are included

ed the fallacies of "attaining social-
ism either by social democracy or
revolutionary socialism." Social de-
.nocracy, he said, "ended in futility
because nowhere was it able to meet
the forces of reaction." Revolution-
ary socialism, on the other hand,
"starting out with all the ideals of
humanism and democracy, gradually
developed into pure totalitarianism,"
he claimed.
Corey is the author of "Decline of
Capitalism" and "House of Morgan."
He has contributed to "Annals of
the American Academy of Political
and Social Sefence, "The Forum,"
and numerous other periodicals.
