The Detroit Free Press, in a recent
editorial entitled "This Proves What,"
assails Richard Halliburton on the
grounds that his feats permit romance
to replace realism and practicability.
As a particular example the editor-
ial cites the case of his diving the
other day into the sacrificial well at
the Chichen Itza ruins down in Yuca-
tair, the surface of which is 70 feet
below the ground. It makes mention
of the fact that the feat was per-
formed "in company with representa-
tives of local newspapers and photo-
The editorial then points to the
widespread knowledge Mr. Hallibur-
ton has acquired as the result of his
world travels. It says, in part, "He
has told of his Byronesque ,feat of
swimming the Hellespont, like Lean-
der of old. He went swimming in the
pool at Taj Mahal ii India. He tried
to swim between Scylla and Charyb-
dis, tihose sirens which lured Ulysses."
The editorial then concludes, "If a
young man with his courage and skill
would devote himself to some useful
pursuit, his example to the nation
would be worth more than it is at
present. Mr. Halliburton may plead
romance is dead, that the world has
need of roving figures like himself to
put dash and glamor into their per-
formances. But there are plenty of
other men who have found romance
in business, who have contributed
something more to civilization's pro-
gress than a lot of ballyhoo and head-
long dives into the famous waters of
the globe."
It would s(em that a word ii ide-
fense of Mr. Halliburton is in order.
