The Negro of slavery and the years
immediately following the emancipa
tion is represented In "Negro Felk
Ithymes" (Mncmillan), a collection of
folk verse made by Prof. Themas AV.
Talley, of Flsk ' University. These
rhymes have no known author. They
grew up among the Negroes and were
developed by repetition and adjustment
until they reached the form In which
they are new repeated In the Seuth.
They nrp dnnce songs and love songs,
song of nnltnnl and nature lore, charms
and Incnntntiens, and se en. It is re
markable that there are se few in the
whole collection that show any realiza
tion of the enslavement of the Negro
or any resentment against that condi
tion. Almest without exception the
rhymes Indicate an acceptance of the
world and n cheerful adaptation te It.
Even where there is resentment against
slavery it Is net argued, but exhibited
Indirectly. Take, for example, "Prom "Prem

tells hew lib master premised te set
him free and broke the premise. It

One may assume that the slave had
something te de jith the poison, but
there Is no moralizing or justifying of

Is stated with the simplicity of a primi
A similar simplicity rules in the
songs of nature, a simplicity that
sometimes becomes beautiful.
THERE is no sophisticated and
trained poet who could produce mere
nearly perfect thing than some that
have been handed down by word of
mouth among the untutored Negroes.
Only a person with n sensitive ear and
si feeling for rhythm eeuld have pro
duced the "Beb White Seng":
Beb white ! Beb white '.

FREEDOM ON THE LITERARY ART OF NEGROES
nml the recent past. It is evident that
a literary consciousness Is awakcrflng
in the race. And after reading Mr.
Jehnsen's anthology one must admit
(het the Negro hns n gift for poetry,
even if the simpler and mere spon
taneous folk rhymes In Tref. Tallcy's
volume had net demonstrated It.
There Is no great poetry in the vol
ume; that Is hardly te be expected.
But (here Is a considerable body of geed
poetry, distinguished by imagination
and Insight and written with a fine
sense of the requirements of verse.
Heme of the poets represented are edit
cated men, college professors or preach
ers or journalist. Others are mere
humble workers, one 'of the best having
been a kitchen worker In a restaurant.
Many of thete modern Xegre poets
express their resentment against the
race that ones enstaved their ances
tors and even new lynches their

THE bitterest et the whole company

Shadows" (Harcourt. Brace & Ce.)
Mr. McKay was born In Jamaica of
slave ancestors. He came te this coun
try In 1012 and has lived here since,
and has received the medal of the In
stitute of Arts and Sciences in recog
nition of his verse. When he came te
the United States he intended te study

ROMANCE WITH A SOUL
Lee Wilsen Dedd's Second
Nevel Fulfills the Premise
of the First
When "The Boek of Susan" ap
peared a year or two age its nifther
was hailed en this page ns a novelist
of Immensely better equipment than the
average. "The Boek of Susan" gave
evidence that it was written by a man
who was seeking .te de something mere
than write merely nn entertaining story.
The book was nn Informed and tolerant
commentary en life.
Lee Wilsen Dedd. lis author, has
justified this estimate of him by his
second novel, "Lllln Chcnowerth" (b.
P. Dutten & Ce.). The greater part of
the action takes plnce in n wemnn s col
lege In New England nnd'ln a theatre in
Paris, but It is n novel of neither the
theatre nor the woman's college. The
real action takes plnce In the mind of
the prlnclpnl characters. Mr. Dedd
has used the college and theatre setting
merely because It has given him an op
portunity te get his characters Inte such
juxtaposition and into such conflict as
would enable him te deal with his spir
If the realism of his setting may be
unsatisfactory the realism of his char
acters is se genuine that the Interest in
their fate grows as the books progresses
until the suspense becomes almost pain
ful. The tragic denouement comes with
n shock, but en reflection the render
will conclude that there was nn ether
Lllln, the heroine, is the daughter of
n brilliant dramatist by n woman whom
he never married. She Inherits her
father's brilliance, but i-he hns n gen
uineness nnd sincerity which he lacked.
Mr. Dedd brings her into contact with
a young college professor with n yearn
ing for fnme, n man who had been self
centcrcd nnd who had never hnd his
i-eul awakened. The book Is the story
of the effect of Lilia upon thl profes prefes profes
rer, the effect of genuineness nnd hatred
of Bhnm nnd love et beauty for Its own
takn upon a man who hnd net yet begun
te think of beauty save In terms of cash
It Is n moving story that will stir
the emotions of every sensitive reader
nnd leave him with n sense of that over ever

with fate, which every great book writ

But there Is difference of opinion as
te the Identity of this particular devil.
Out of the mass of diverse views Vr.
Hollopeter arrives t the conclusion,
strengthened by years of experience and

posed by debility of some character te
the Influence of the irritant.
That the disease may be prevented,
and that It may be cured is argued with
n skill that will appeal te every logical
mind. That there have been many
cures effected is without doubt. And
that, in spite of this, here and there
mnv be found some hay fever sufferer
who remains cold nnd skeptical is prob
ably due te the low state of mind which
the fever begets.

The Whole Field of Science Reduced te IU
A Plain Story Simply Told
in the N. Y. Times
Higher praise could hardly
be given te a book than te
. say it wns written by the
right man, at the right time,
in the right way. These vol
umes should stand with
Wells "History" and be
read by every human being
whose mind and eyes are
new and then lifted te the
stars and the birds, no mat
ter where his body may be.
THE OUTLINE OF SCIENCE reads like thrUlinr. fasci
nating romance. It is written in story form, with no jerki
ness and no overlapping. The illustrations are magnificent,
nearly 1000 of them, forty in full color. Each is thoroughly
authentic and scientifically eccurate. Te be completed In 4
volumes. Royal 8. First volume new ready. $3.75 per
volume. At all booksellers.

O M E critics have attacked Gerald O'Don O'Den O'Don
evan's magnificent novel
because they liave read into a fine work of art
(with as breathlessly thrilling a story as any
novel recently published) an attack en the Cath
olic Church, accusing Mr. O'Donevan of being
a propagandist and of "insinuating a definite
thesis that priests are either brainless or treach
erous, and nuns are weak, feeble, and sheeplike
, UU.UKUH, MUUKK, an enthusiastic admirer of
VOCATIONS, writes te Mr. O'Donevan : "The charge brought
against you is that the novel is propaganda. It is no such thine,
no mere than Esther Waters is propaganda, although accused of
being such in the-beginning."
The New Yerk Herald says: "It is net an attack
upon the church, but it is a powerful demonstration of the inher-
ent wrongness of asceticism. . . . The tragedy of the fully normal
woman who is forced te become a nun and seeks a way out of her
prison, ... has nowhere as a whole been se comprehensively
treated as here. There is nothing salacious in the book, nothing
I rubbed in en purpose te be goaded ever. The sins gross and petty;
,the vileness and slime are all integrally a part of the plot, net
ever-accentuated and always kept in their place."
The New Yerk Times says: "VOCATIONS is very
1 distinctly an unusual novel. Unusual in its plot, as well as in its
dramatic quality, its admirable portrayal of character and thsj
, geed taste shown in the handling of an exceptionally ugly situ
ation. ... A genuinely interesting novel, well constructed,
realistic, and very well written."
The Natien says: "Johanna Curtin is one of these
characters who satisfy the mind wholly, and permanently enrich
one's knowledge of human nature. Kitty and Winny Curtin,
although their portraits are necessarily fainter and mere delicatsj
in tone, cling almost as tenaciously te the mind. VOCATIONS
is the work of an extraordinarily mature art."
This is the first book that I have ever published that I
have chosen thus te recommend publicly in this per
sonal manner. I believe it te be one of the best novels
that have been printed en either side of the Atlantic in a
number of years.
