among American publishers his name

George Lanbury, a labor leader of
London, who obtained admission to-Rus-sia
last January as reporter for the Lon
don Daily Herald and was detained there
for nine weeks, has written a book called
-What I Saw in Russia."
Lansbur). as a newspaper man, met
and talked with representatives of all
classed of Russians. He speaks in hi
book -of the remarkable. ability of Lenin,
nlwra he found at work in an office, sur
rounded by stenographers but entirely
unguarded. To ue Lansbury's words,
"no flunkies admitted trie.
Lansbruy does not think that justice
lias been done to the Russian situation
by the press. Revolutionists have been
careful to avoid murdering helpless cili
renvand have repeatedly refused to fire
on noncombatants, even when ordered to
do so bv their officers.
The book shows that much is bang
done in Russia toward improvement and
education, although it )vould sceina tliat
such is almost impossible at this time.
One of the .greatest drawbacks, as
out, was -the blockade. To quote Mat
thew F. Bovd of New York:
"In tliis book George Lansbury shows
the effects upon Russia and tire Russian
people 'of the allied policy of war, in-trigue-and
economic blockade. It is, per
haps, not understood clearly enough by
the general public that the blockade pre
vents Russia from getting not enly ma
clu'nery and food, but that medical and
surgical supplies are prevented from en
teritis, the country. As a result, 'while
hunger is general in the large cities, in
volving the underfeeding of children
and the. actual .semi-starvation of adults,
tie nitk'nal health" 'in x.ity, (own and vil-
f lage is"m '3eperatejeopard."'

Although Russia is in a fearful state
of discord now, she is merely passing
through a stage which mot of the nations
of the earth have been through. It is
only a matter of time when she will get
a staple government. Boshevim and the

p'odqets of the revolution. The Rus

against the moement is at present de
feated because of the lack of unity amdng
the ami Bolshevist forces. The Com

old centralized regime, but on the con
trary will struggle for her -unity to form
a democratic form of government, just as
the United States struggled for its gov
ernment in the carle saees.
The United States has been kindly and

THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
Deari Walter Miller Speaks at Y. W.

'"The bt expression of the meaning
of Christmas," said Dean Walter Miller,
in a talk at the meeting of,the Y. W. C.
A. yeterday afternoon, "is found in the
angda .song declaring, 'glory to God in
the highest and on earth peace and good
will to men.' "
"Christmas shoiild mean a good time,
of course.,whea we especially eojoy our
homes. , But i' should have a spiritual
meaning also. We should at the Christ
mas season dedicate oursehes anew to
the King's work."

mis and, after viewing the dramatized
form, the homor seems even' more sophis
ticated But there can be no denjing
that the rlay provides, the, most, mirth-
provoking satire that the public has been
privileged to witness for many moons.
Mr. Salteena's pursuit of "gentility,"
his chat with the (then) prince of Wales
(who smokes cigars and eats his ice
errant in the most democratic fashion
imaginable), together with other innum
erable laughable situations, contribute to
nuke this quaint story of "High Life in
the Eighties" even more amusing than
an evening with Weber & Fields or Kay
Hitchcock. The play is burlesque pure
and simple. The spirit is maintained re
ligiously throughout. The unique set
HAgs are just what Daisy must have
imagined them id her 9-year- mind's eye.
The cast is exceptionally well balanced.
Standing out most prominently- are the
characterizations of Leslie Palmer as the
prince of" Wales; H erbert tYost t Mr.
Salteeha, and Harold Anslrulher as his
rital in love. Mjss -Marie Coff as the
