ACTNix HEAD; COM211ITTEE
Ilen'e Fisher, '23, has been appoint-
ed acting president of the Wom'n's
league for the Summer session. Con-'
mittee chairmen have been announced
as fo'lows: Social chairman, Portia
Coulder, '23; publicity chairman,, 1>r.
othy M. Bennetts, '23; member'ship
chairman, Reba Hadley, '23; treasur-
er, Janet Menges, '23.
The league will function during the
summer much as it does during the
regular school year. All social func-
tions for the women will be given by
the Women's league. The first affair
is a lawn party which is to be given
Thursday afternoon on the Martha
Cook terrace. This will be in the
nature of a reception for the purpose
of helping all the. women enrolled in
the Summer session to meet each oth-
er and to get acquainted. Arrange-
ments have been made to have spe-
cial music and college songs will be
The league has plans for several
other social functions and at least
one picnic to be given later on in
the summer. Membership in the
league for the summer may be taken
out at the booth in University hail
for 2 cents. Last year the membership
totaled more than 400 and it is hoped
that it will be at least doubled this
For personal reasons I should like
very much to praise "The Sin of Mon-
sieur Pettipon," (Doran) by Richard
r -!rV', but I find it impossible. It is
far and away the worst volume I have}
read since Buchan's "Prester John.",
It is even worse than "If Winter
Connell is simply a third rate O.
Henry-and 0. Henry was a fourth
rate Kipling, and Kipling is the James
Whitcomb Riley of India, transplant-
'ed from England.
Searching the whole volume through
I fail to find a single story, of the
12 which make up the book, with a
single bit of merit. The author shows
flashes of intelligence, even flashes of
cynicism but these are rare and in-
variably badly turned. In the main,
however, he sticks to glib words,
glibber phrases and still glibber plots.
His stuff is too ribbon clerkish even
for the Saturday Evening Post. His
themes might easily come from The
American Magazine, or from a "pep-

Connell's heroes win against ob- dod; e of my own to him as being
stacles with all the old and stale bags somewhat better, namely writing ad-
of tricks. He has no single sense of 1 vertising. It isn't nearly so p~ublic
the pathos of life, andreven less sense and it is without pretense of being
of proportions. He tries to be hum- arthstic or literary, without, in brief,
orous and simultaneously to show the any smack of hypocrisy. One is frank-
pathetic, and he becomes patheticaly ly, in such a position, a poltroon; one
humorous. And not very humorous. eafns the necessary money, and
His stuff is cheap and shoddy, and I there's the end of it-until the next
wonder that he writes it without gag-
ging, for, surely, he must know better,
must be aware that only shop girls
and school teachers could enjoy such
buncombe, could think of it in terms
The chances are that Connell has
had to turn a penny by doing such
stuff, and if this is the case I can, to
some extent, sympathize with him,
understand him. But I recommend a.
I am sorry that Connell's book is
bad, sorry not only, as I hinted at
the start, because of personal reas-
ons, but sorry because I am tired
of re.ading bad books and denouncing
them, tired of conulting the diction-
ary for words of opprobrium, tired
of whaling at puff-balls. But one must
accept such things in this business.
