That famed New York producer,'
Earl Carroll, has just brought forthi
his latest bath-tub spectacle. And,
true to the Carroll tradition, the
chief touch of dramatic suspense
was furnished by the police officers
of New York who came to see the
performance from the more ad-
vantagous viewpoint of the wings.

but the nude on the stage is, to
most of the self-apppointed cen-
sors of mankind, a little too real-
istic for toleration.
Of course, there are also several
interpretations of toleration, and
somte of them might involve the
recognition of ,the rights of the in-
dividual to witness any sort of a
spectacle, indecent as it might be,
if he, were of such stuff as to en-
j oy indecencies, all this provided
that no one had to see it who did
not relish it. After all, the pro-
hibition of such performances
amounts to little more than an at-
tempt to forbid people to have the.
kinds of minds which they have.
But'this is, to be certain, nothing
more than an opinion concerning
the relative merits of a puritan at-
titude, in which the preservation
of tradition and standards is of
prime importance, and an individ--
ualistic attitude, in which the
greatest good is believed to come
by permitting all freedom of the
individual in so far as it is com-
patible with the maintenance of
a social order. Perhaps, we are not
created in the same image as our
brothers on the European conti-
nent, who seem to have no diffi-
culty in permitting the individual
to go his own way unmolested. We
seem to be over-concerned with
the welfare of the group, and as a
result, we are heartless in curbing
the activities, of the individual.
If the presentation which Mr.
Carroll was making on the New
York: stage were such that it af-
fected our social being, that it
marked the presence of an insid-
ious poison spreading through the
fibre of our national structure,
then certainly, it should have been
stopped at, once. But,. if it repre-
-sees merely a catering to the tastes
of a large: portion of the populace,
and is not consciously an attempt
to destroy moral stability, it is do-
ing no more than any other of the
host of motion pictures which are
being witnessed by thousands all
over the country every day. In
fact, they are more to be censored,
for they are no only immoral in
an indecent way, but they also

are delightful. But ofter you have
said that, there is really not much
more to say. The book is certain-
ly not a great character novel, not
the masterpiece of an age. The
perpetual delightfulness of the
scene has a distorting influence on
the characters; it 'makes them ap-
pear unnatural and refracted. It
gives the effect that everything is
"sweet and rosy", somewhat even
of the Pollyanna effect, and critic-
ally there is hardly anything else
that one can say but "delightful"
to this sort of thing. Though in
the next breath, by reflex perhaps,
you find yourself murmuring-"if
true." This may be part of the con-
temporary reaction against if -true
literature, and must be regarded
as prejudice therefore. But this
one can say, say quite unbiasedly,
that if-true literature thus far has
never produced healthy character
portrayal, that Miss Green is no
execption to this. And then, as no
critic will argue, there is nothing
particularly original or contribut-
ing about Miss Green's style, and
about her handling of the novel

But The Selbys is really not a

will not worry us-imperiling our
moral institutions, or aesthetic
forms. Indeed Mists Green is a
very congeniel sort of novelist,
especially congenial for summer
reading, summer reading that
should be (proverbially) light and
unworrying. This type of writing
occupies a big place in literature,
the biggest place in fact, so it will
be more than just summer read-
ing to many. It is escape litera-
ture, the literature of delight, and

to our public question: Shall we be

farmer's house to get a drink of
water. NOTE-for the benefit of
the Washtenaw Tribune, this f arm-

County. The farmer was in the
farmyard feeding some hogs when
we drove up.
After our drink, we went over to
look at his hogs. We said, "Those
are good fat hogs. Did you raise
"No", said the farmer, "I bought
them for $3.25 each."
"And you intend to sell them in
the fall?"
"Yes, I'l sell them for $3.25

make any profit, will you?"
"Yes", the farmer said, "I fig-
