possibility that the plan would

played any part in bringing
about the change it was merely
in keeping the situation alive.

fact that editorials on regis

- By MIKE GRIFFIN -—
Believe it or nut, this novel eov
era only one minute of a man’s life;
it’s the lust minute, true, but only
one. The hero is condemned to
death and is about to be led to the
hot squat—of course he thinks buck
over the happening* of his life, and
of these this ouc-chapter book con
It isn’t u new idea—far from it,
hut it’s nevertheless true. Once
when 1 was very young, uiy mother
caught me partly in the cookie jar,
and I know 1 did a hasty autobiog
raphy then and there. The events
of the condemned man’s life stand
out clearly and ru detail ui krr1

Mnittll wonder that they are so
distinct, t in1 prescript ion for his
life would road: “Take as many
women of all kinds as may bo com
fortably xi|iioozod into ono small
life, and mix thoroughly. Tako one
botoro and at tor moals, before going
to bod and upon arising.”
llo gets several difforont jobs, of
course, for ho Jiad to oat, and ho has
other incidental experiences, but the
important chapters of his life are
female. 11 is affairs ha ye different
outcomes—-one, his first, is his
awakening; another, his last, is the
cause of liis death.
The pure account ofjiis life is in
teresting, ljut evc.rs now amt then
the reader stubs liis too over a little
insert of the author's, who seems to
have a guilty conscience a ud is tr\
ing to protect himself from critics.
1 hose apologies arc childishly oh\i
ous— Come "it, critics, rail against
it ... . say it isn’t realism . . . .
but I say it.” Evidently afraid to
let his novel stand oil its own feet,
he had to butt in and prop it up be
forehand. No so very intelligent,
Oh yes. The novel has a mission,
loo. This book is to free the world
from all falsity toward sex. The
author is very stongly against the
stork story, which I think is cute.

Eevvis and Clark, first Americans to cross
the continent, knew the importance of
“trifles” in the concerted plan. They saw to

every step from man-power to pack-horse

constant vigilance to their task.
