Peace is more nearly safe in a demo

Democracy is lest liable ibn autocracy
or bureaucracy to be militaristic.
Fundamental in a democracy is freedom
of speech, written and spoken. There can
be no genuine and continued democracy
save villi freedom cf the press. It still
remains true as when uttered by Macau
lay that there are but two kinds of gov
ernment in the world, government of
public opinion and government by the
sword. Becaysc the people lute war and
love peace, wars will be increasingly in
frequent when the- voice of the peoples,
organized pubbc opinion, becomes in
actuality the controlling factor in the
destinies of all nations. Through a free
press Is, in modern limes, tlie chief,
though of course not the only, method of
expression of public opimon.
To remove the coolant recurring
danger or strife between nations there is
needed a national and international free
press. Suspicion and jealousy and na

upon ignorance It is wLat we do not

fear It is what lie d'ics not, understand

Ine lines of the reading version the play
has charm. It is simple, as simple as
your life and as complex as all the lives
vju know of.
The scene of the p'jy is laid in a small
mountain village made famous by the
production of the Passion Play every ten
years. Tlie characters of The Light of
tl-e World, are the countery and vll
lage folk who take part in the Passion
Play. The hero is Anton, the wood
carver and carpenter who is chosen by
the elders of the village lo act the role
of the Christus. They admonish him to
live his life "as Christ would have lived".
Anton applies the true spirit of Chris
tianity toward Mama, who lias mistaken
passion for love. Tlie rest is the classic
reaction of conventional good folk who
knows themselves to be les zood' than
their reputations. The situations at the
xit of the cross and in Anion's hou-e
are construettd with a simple strength
and flignity that makes their sirailarftv
to experiences of the Master justifiable,
instead of presumptuous.
It is a new and welcome version of
the story of the Man of Nazareth. Be
you Christian or atheist, orthodox or non
conformist, you will find in it questions
that carry into your heart and awaken
answers in your mind.

What would you do about it?
The reviewer's personal opinion is thai
the book is a masterly work of twisted
pessimism. Pessimism is an ally of de
spair. Despair is ihe mother of bolshe
vism, which, in turn, brings forth anar
chy. Therefor: the book is, though per
haps unconsciously, propaganda fJr an
archy. There fs a difference between strong
meat and tainted meat. A book with
courage and belief is strong meat. A
book filled with cynicism, railing and
tour humor is tainted meat. "Caius
Ciacchus," a five-act jragedy based on
tbe rejection of Caius Gracchus by t&e
citizens of Rome, with one ait devoted
to the representation of a patrician revel
of wine, caressing of courtesans and rar
Ishing cf virgins; two acts given over
to tbe dirty talk of the Forum and anoth
er one to the triumph of men's blindness'
and self-deteat, is tainted meat.

It was alo a custom of the taverns in
