LEAGUE BATSMEN

Ofre Ambler, by Booth Tarkington;
Doubleday, Doran; $2:50.
Claire Ambler, the first publication
Doubleday, Doran since they united
Garden City, is strictly Tarking-
ian. This in'the reviewer's esti-
stion means a wholesome impression
youth as it is seen thru the eyes
the mature mind. Since it is writ-
i to bring out the jollities and the
)erficialities of character which
use the mother, the father, or the
erver, the book appears to be writ-
. for such a reader. Only that kind
uld entirely believe that Claire is
'eal person in her continuous self-
sciousness. The modern girl, her-
f, considers no one franker, less of
perpetual actress than she and for
Lt reason she' cannot appreciate the
,racter of Claire Ambler who is
rlastingly posing; nor can a lad,
o never wears knickers for fear
ple will think he wears them all
while, detect the fine touches of
enteen which his Dad sees is cork-

and her serene settlement of the sit-
uation is the final stablelizer the life
of this young blood needs.

Bad Girl-By Vina Del Mar. The,
Literary Guild of America. $2.50.
I am forever and consciously leery
of first novels by youngsters, but the
initial attempt of this twenty-one year
old girl is quite gratifying. It is grat-
ifying not because it is a tremendous
work but because it has, on the con-
trary, flaws characteristic of inexper-
ience. These flaws are indicative of
the fact that Vina Del Mar perhaps
has not burned herself out from her
experiences; that she has not drained
herself emotionally and in literary po-
tentialities.
The story is simple and very sweet.
A boy and girl meet and marry. Each
thinks that the other does not desire
a child, and when it is discovered that
there is to be one, complexity due to
their misconceived ideas of the other's
wants arises.
From the inciting action on the
book becomes a study in obstetrics,
dealing with a subjective treatment of
the pregnant girl's emotions, her tant-
rumns and her stoical devotions. The
husband assumes a minor position, im-
portant only as a link in the misun-

The book shows a certain sincerity
on the part of the authorin drawing
a character of the modern flirting and
flitting maiden. The simplicity of pre-
senting the work brings out the poise
in writing of this figure from the old
school who is still writing best sell-
ers and pleasant reading for an Idle,
summer day in the hammock. Besides
entertainment there is a gratifying and
artistic handling of Claire's many in-
terests among the masculine popula-
tion. In the first section the author
presents her as someone enough so-
phisticated to impress her contempor-
aries in playing about at fashionable
country clubs. Not only does she daz-
zle youth but she rather flabberghasts
old men with her smattering, conver-
sational, and incompleteknowledge of
all the world's weighty problems.
Part Two at Raona seems somewhat
unreal in the romantic setting of the
Continent. The usual American can
scarcely visualize Arturo as a real
man when he, a swathy figure, tact-
lessly and absurdly pesters Claire with
declarations of love. The "bracer" in
the stogy is Part Three entitled
"Twenty-five" and the reader is glad
that Claire has grown up. Here com-
es the ferment of picking a huisband

derstanding.
The novel is not a great one, for it
lacks the sustained, inevitable power
necessary for that. Its creative value
lies in glowing, introspective detail of
emotion, written in manner that does
not offend, but commands respect, ra-
ther. The lying-in period is described
in a fashion that can be nothing but
autobiographical. Not a detail, not an
action is omitted. Even the globe
above the operating table, pouring
down heat and mocking jeers as well
as light, Is noted as "a great white
laugh."
After the birth of the child the in-
tense masterf l drama falls to rise and
fall again. And therein lies the pri-
mal weakness.

liver the first lecture of a series to
' be given under the auspices of the
School of Education at 4 o'clock on
Monday. The subject of her lecture
will be "The Purpose of The Pri-
mary School."
This lecture course is offered not
only to students regularly enrolled
in the Summer Session of the School
of Education, but also to all school
superintendents, supervisors, princi-
pals, and teachers who can afford to
spend only a part of their time on
the campus.
The conference course carries no
credit, but is merely for the purpose
of presenting lectures by experts and
informal discussions of all present day
teaching problems. The course is un-
der the direction of Prof. Arthur B.
Moehlman of the School of Educa-
tion.
