Change Seen in Character of
the Reading Done by
Magazines of Opinion and
Politics in Greater Favor
Than a Year Ago.
That Columbians and University
students are thinking seriously about
the war is evidenced by the books and
magazines they read.
Records at the University library
show the trend among students. They
call less often for fiction than a year
ago and more often for personal
narratives of the war. Most of the
Action they do read is saturated with
the spirit of war. H. G. Wells' books
are in demand, especially, "Mr. Brit-
ling Sees It Through," "God, the In
visible King," and "The ,Soul of a
Bishop." His books are also selling
rapidly at the book stores. Maeter
linck's and Wells' works were selling
at about the same rate last year; now
the philosophies and fantasies of the
Belgian are seldom called for whereas
more and more of the Englishman's
studies of the war are taken.
War Poetry Popular.
War poetry has come into its own.
Bookstores all report a heavy sale of
Robert W. Service's "Rhymes of a Red
Cross Man." Other poetry which is
popular is that of Allan Seeger and
Rupert Brooke, two young .English
men who lost their lives in the war.
The poetry of W. W. Gibson, a friend
of Brooke and a member of the liter
ary coterie to which'Brpoke belonged,
is also popular.
Manuals and pamphlets that the
Government sends to the University
library no sooner arrive than they
are taken out. Military manuals and
articles on the making of munitions,
particularly those dealing with ex
plosives, are always in circulation.
Men students are interested in this
sort of reading. The women go in
for such subjects as food conservation,
better food at cheaper rates, what to
wear, how to can. In general, both
men and women favor practical and
Personal accounts of the war are
well liked. James W. Gerard's "My
Four Years in Germany," which is an
intimate story of German official life;
"My Year of the Great War," by
Frederick Palmer, and "Over the Top,"
by Empy, an American serving in the
Canadian Army, are among the best
sellers. Magazines of opinion and
politics have hit the public favor, and
the leading magazines, by their many
practical suggestions on how one may
help in the "war, are attracting new
readers. Most periodicals are now
troubled with a falling or stationary
circulation. Book sellers attribute
this condition to. the high cost of
Chambers Always With Us.
Standard fiction magazines, how
ever, still hold their readers. This is
true, too, of the popular authors. A
year ago the popular writers gave
their stories an atmosphere and a
background of war, but now, many of
them have returned to the old stand
by detective and mystery stories.
For the readers of this grade of
literature. Chambers and Oppenheim,
still hold their own.
Readers of pure exposition, those
who can forego the love story and the
trimmings of fancy and humor, are
more numerous at the University this
year than last. This is evidenced by
the increased interest in the works of
Thorstein Veblen, Hugh Black, "Prof.
H. H. Powers and the New York
Times' History of the War. Three of
Veblen's books, in particular "The
Nature of Peace," "Imperial Germany
and the Industrial Class" and "The
Theory of the Leisure Class" are in
high favor. More works of the same
order will soon be ready for circu
lation at the University library. The
following is a partial list: "Report of
the Committee on German Outrages,"
James Bryce; "Modern Germany in
Relation to the War," by various
German writers; "Why Men Fight,"
Bertrand Russell; "Above the Battle,"
Romain Rolland; "America and the
New Epoch," Charles P. Steinmetz;
"The Diplomacy of the Great War,"

ENGLISH WOMEN LEARN TO COOK
Now They Are Considering- Christmas
Presents for Soldiers.
'LONDON, Oct 13. My dear Sis:
Everybody who has anybody fighting
anywhere and that means every
England is talking
Christmas presents this week. The
shops are full of jolly, plummy-looking
boxes, which come within the
prescribed limits. The contents are
alluringly spread out and the prices
run any where from ?1.50 to $250.
Of course, there is always the na
tional plum pudding. Last year most
families made it at home; this year
so many private houses are closed,
or given over to hospitals or con
valescent homes, and so many cooks
are enlisted with the women's army, i
that the big stores and confectioners
are making most of the puddings and
cakes. Besides, the big establish-!
ments are able to get extra supplies of
"sugar and spice and all that's nice"
for Christmas goodies, whereas Just.
ioiks are noi. men mere are smoKe-,
colored knitted neckties, khaki hand-1
kerchiefs of silk or lawn, candies and
cigarettes, fruit in cans, roast turkey i
and green vegetables, and other less
festive articles. A girl I met in a shop
was bubbling with delight over a $7
sponge as big as an island and a pair
of brown felt bedroom slippers which
were the last items for her box. I
don't know whether she had orders
for these strange things for trench
life but she certainly got them with
the air cf one who knew exactly what
F.he was about and chose regardless
of expense. (
Whatever may be the hardships
and deprivations of this war it Is do
ing English families one good turn.
English women are learning to cook.
Not from fancy cook books but from
day to day kitchen experiments with
the incentive of making a brave show
when the man of the house comes
home on leave. The home people are
now restricted by the food controller
to half a pound of sugar a week per
person and half a pound of bread per
day, which includes all flour in cakes
and pies. And. by the way, I must
tell you that women are importuning
the Government for its war bread
recipe. It is acknowledged to sur
pass all others. It was concocted by a
mere man, a chemist, and he is very
modest in spite of all the ladies
buzzing 'round. j
Every little suburb dwelling has its
allotment or back garden patch where j
all kinds of vegetables are Just now
in full maturity. I tell you there is
not going to be any shortage of
potatoes this season, the back gar
deners have seen to that. It's quite
amusing to see the ingenuity with
which women have chosen the pretty

in their front gardens, where sweet

roses used to bloom. But I noticed
