A stoiv of the commercial rise
of a middle west town and its
visionary promoter, a native son,
Dan Oliphant.
A midlander by birth, Tarking
ton seems to feel the pulse ol" bis
small town folk. His people are
rear, living persons meeting com
mon everyday situations in com
mon everyday ways. I know of
i;o writer who vrites of the heart
of the small town folk as Tark
ington. His Alice Adams, his
Pen rod, his Gentleman from In
diana, are notable smatl towm
c pics.
To a city cliff dweller, the ap
peal may not show itself in the
p.idlander. But to the middle
westerner' himself, who has spent
his lite as such, watching the
growth of his home town, watc-h-
strength. Dan is not a Babbitt;
He does not care for - persouaF
glory. His is the heart "of
genuine promoter who promote!)
for the ultimate rise of the envirv
oument, and little thinks of the
difficulty in passing. '
Dan's marriage choice i3 unfor-
lunate, lo a city, doll-like crea
ture who hates the west with its
burred It's and its flagrant (to
her) provincialism. She tolerates
it only a she doesn't think of
something better to do. Their one;
son grows up typically a "cake
eater" whose childhood is divided1
between European. Tesorts and'
American joy rides. Martha, thtl
girl next door, has always loved?;
Dan and auhwiifently is the con- ,
slant butt of Dan's wife, Lena's,;
caustic tongue. Dan has always
been wholly unaware of Martha's
affection. i
The story of the town, its de
velopment and its personal strug
gles is the real sory of the ,Mid
lander. The life of Dan Oliphant
is so entwined that it might be
called a joint story of "Midland
and The Midlander." i

tcoepted modern motion picture
