Recent Acquisitions Enhance Display
Sections in Library; Dunning
Fund Contributes
Collections of rare old books and
manuscripts are on exhibition this
week at both the Samuel L. Clements
and main libraries.
On view at the Samuel L. Clements
library is a collection of early books
by and about Thomas Paine, early
American author. Among these are
copies of the first French edition of
the "Age of Reason," and replies
which this work evoked. Contempo-
rary reports of the trial of Thomas
Paine and his first editions in both
French and English of his pamphlet
"Common Sense" are also to be seen.
Letter On View
A printed copy of a letter from
Paine to President Geo. Washington
on "Affairs Public and Private" is
shown. This letter assails the presi-
dent for his foreign policy and was
used by the Republicans in 1916 as af
campaign document by substituting
the name of Woodrow Wilsonj
In the foyer of the main library are
to be seen recent acquisitions of rare
books, manuscripts, and play posters.
Among the latter is a poster adver-
tising the performance at Ford's
theatre in Washington of "Our Amer-
ican Cousin," at w.hich Lincoln was
assassinated.
Dunning Fund Large
The library has bought on the Dun-
ning fund about 4,500 volumes of the
transactions and journals of some 150
French local societies of history, sci-
ence, and literature. A few of the
oldest of these are shown. In an-
other case are selections from a coil
lection of about 6,000 pamphlets on
Dutch history printed in the 16th to
18th centuries.

YALE STAR TO JOIN INDIANS of the field in the national college
NEW HAVEN, June 27.-Bruce tourney here. Georgetown is second
11and Yale third.

Pilgrims of the Impossible-By Cor-
ingsby Dawson. Doubleday, Doray.
$2.50.
The author rather skillfully laces a
surprisingly vast number of incidents
together to make a story of the youth-
ful preacher who maneuvers his des-
tiny to become un homme du monde
and a playwright. His life-loving in-
stincts cause him to see through the
mistakes of his father and grandfa-
ther, who were ministers. Robin, the
lad-a dreaming sort-mocks in his
simple fashion the people of the small
town who have children heedless of
their incomes-only mindful of the
God-given advice of "Be fruitful and
multiply" and trusting that "the Lord.
will find a way." "This is leaving a
great deal up to the Lord," Robin
early rationalizes in his original style.
He goes through the struggle of'
youth passionately sympathetic with
his worldly grandmother who elopedj
with a wealthy seaman and returned
a few years later to the reality that'
her first husband was still alive: and
in his make-up is a craving to do the
ethically correct and only what his
judgment says is right.
The flare at the beginning takes
Robin from Oxford to a church to
preach for the summer in accordance
with 'the custom of the seminary
which is sending him through the
University on a scholarship. On the
train to the village of his coming so-
journ he sits by his first real contact
with the fascinating sex and she so

completely arouses him that he is
elated to find that she is to be in the
same village as he. She is on her
way to rehearse plays for the fall
opening in London, but he doesn't
make a barrier of this because the
girl is sincere, romantic, and some-
what well-bred with a father from
Oxford and a mother who glittered
on England's metropolitan stage a
decade ago. In his mind-soarings to
sentimental clouds, Robin does not
reckon with the fact that the vil-
lagers are babblers and tattlers and
that to their provincial intellect a
preacher's having an actress friend
can mean only one thing-a thing
which no man can put his finger on
as definitely as the untrained. Their
higgling and haggling reaches the
heads of the seminary shortly and the
scholarship is immediately withdrawn
marking the end of Robin's career in
the ministerial profession.
These are hints of the plot which
is so attractively written that it lifts
readers out of the maelstrom of liv-
ing into pleasure. Story isn't the only
stress: characters are created in
Robin, Keswick, and June who would
be our friends as readers used to know
Richardson's folks, if it were the,
fashion, done by the elite whom Van-
ity Fair writers discuss. A very few
passages are hum-drum-that is bor-
ing, weighty with morals, but the rest
refreshes with its entertainment.
