Books of the Day

The lIntelligent Women's Guide to So-
clalism and Capitolism by Bernard
Shaw. Brentano's. $3.40.
In this book Shaw tactfully and
cleverly serves a simple dish of the
first principles of socialism and
capitolism beautifully garnished in
his usual satire. The work is any
number of things, for in it are so-
ciological studies like observations
concerning the press and the school,
religious -problems, as for example,
the village church, the economic prob-
lem of the "idle rich," the eugenies
of the race--everything!
Many facts are what people already
know and would be casual if not bor-
ing were it not for the vivid style
of the author who is very much him-
self. He inserts witty remarks and
shifts, stirs, and stresses his argu-
ments to portray all that he desires
them to say. What another writer
would state Shaw illumines and
makes it shine radiating the sparkle
in his own shrewd eye. He enjoys
standing off and watching his words
dance and struggle at his will.
Shaw -in a typically Shavian way
states that he intends to influence
the men through the opposite sex and
since both are necessary to evolve
the opinions of the nation his work
ought to be a real influence. He is
particularly solicitous of his Ameri-
can readers-much more interested
in them than would be expected. It
is fomforting, however, to find that
he realizes one of his strengths and
addresses his American reader al-

munisitic basis because people need
bridges ,armies, and street lights
while such luxuriest as beer, face
powder and oriental rugs are not es-
sential and are desired only by the
few. Therefore communism may go
far and then it is useless and absurd.
One of the chief assets of the book
is that it stimulates thought on a
series of questions which might be
closed were it not for just such a
mental sting and incentive to the at-
tention. He brings up the rather un-
answerable and nearly philosophic
question of how much each person
should have. An individual under
some regimes may have all he can
get or there may be some way of
dividing the money. Shaw states that
this is an essential issue at the pres-
ent time when one widow is getting
only a few pence pension for a family
of fixe or six.
The problems are presented in a
lively manner, so that the reader
doesn't turn drowsy or let his head
droop over the book. He remains
alert and ever is inquisitive concern-
ing the next mental tangle and un-
ravelling though which Shaw is go-
ing to take him.,

Tasty

Food

We all know the difference between
food that is tasty and that which has
no appeal to our sense of taste.
What a satisfaction it is to enjoy a
meal that is carefully prepared and is
cooked from the best foods that we
can buy.
We assure you that our menus are
suited to satisfy the most critical taste.
Try our lunch and dinner and find
out for yourself.

though he says that he doesn't know iera could be pictured as unusually
them particularly because he has sparkling, vivacious, and witty but
never been here. Elizabeth Bowen with dull characters
The book is somewhat instructional aand an even, duller "Hotel" makes life
because of the clear thinking demon- on the Italian Riviera, only an exist-

strated in its content and because
of the scope of the subjects covered.
He writes of communism which puts
income into a common fund and di-
vides the procedes equally among the
contributors. He states that this is
practised in the home to a great ex-
tent but there is a limit to it be-
cause each wage earner keeps out a
portion for himself. He says that
everything cannot be run on a com-

ence and quite meager existence at
that.
At first glance Sydney Warren
seems to be a "good" character, and
in the final pages she again seems
hopeful, but throulghout the greater
part she is only stolid. The three
Lawrence girls are typical flirtatious
flappers with one flaw-they are not
very successful flapper: !

A cherished honor
That it's a real collekiate favorite everywhere
is but one of many honors borne by the jade-
Breen pen with the little white dot. And because
this Lifetime pen spends most days in the writ-
in, hand and least in repair shops, it is worthy
of all honor. Unconditionally kuaranteed
for a lifetime of flawless writing, it costs more
because it is worth more. Its careful, sturdy
construction makes possible the guarantee.
And the Titan pencil is a twin in dependability.
