BUENOS AIRES; Sept, 22 (AP)
The recent visit to Argentina of
Victorio E. Orlando, former Ital
ian prime minister, to give a
course of lectures in the law de
partment of the University of
Buenos Aires, did not pass with
out a protest! by some Argentine
educators. These gentlemen re
garded Signor Orlando as a prop
agandist for the policy of instill
ing loyalty to Italy among the
children of Italian immigrants
the expense of their loyalty to the
country of their birth
j One member of the law faculty
Dr. Juan C. Rebora, refused to at
Alfredo L. Palaclos, dean of the
faculty of juridical ; and social
sciences of the University of La
tend the lectures, as did also Dr.
Plata. They expressed themselves
in correspondence which was dis
tributed to the students and pro
fessors of all educational institu
tions. as opposed "to the mainte
nance of a theory which tends , to
create a double nationality for
those who, having been born in
Argentina, are, , feel themselves,
and wish to be Argentines." j f
Remarks by Signor Orlando on
his arrival here were quoted in the.
correspondence as showing that
he- considered allegiance to Italy
as the duty of those born of Ital-1
ian blood in foreign lands. The
professors , also cited a manifesto
published by prominent Italian
residents in connection with the
visit of Prince Humbert to Argen
Una, in which the prince was re
ferred to as "the future sovereign
of our sons." This, they described.
as the fruit of the Italian policy
to organize Italians in foreign
This policy, remarked Dr. Re-
bora, ''does not ' merely oppose
the immigrant taking root in the
country; it openly resists the ori
entation of the sentiments of his
children. It publicly propagates

which the son retains the nation

"The Glory Hole." by Stewart
Edward' White. '. Published by
Doubleday Page: & Co., Garden
City, New York. Prtce $p.50.
This writer has left the setting
of western woods; and ' water and
taken his readers in his new nov
el into the middle . west . in the
eighties. It is a Main Street of
forty years ago. ;. .'
His characters are unusual.. The
Kirby family basks in the glory of
Uncle Ezeklel whose fabulous
(for the times) wealth brings a
namesake : heir, and subsequent
educational - and ; travel plans.
Young Zcke or Zoko as his
French nurse names him; devel
ops Into a , typically ordinary son
of aspiring but dumb parents, a
dub millionaire. '
The highlight of the story is
Uncle Jim whose balance wheel
of life is duck shooting in the iso
lation of the open water. Mm
nie is a climber "A porch climb
er", as one Mrs. Malaprop of . a
Kansas town once said- when
speaking : of a socially inclined
newcomer she strives tp live; the
top pace and set 'the world agaap
with her departures and ac
complishes her desires.
Uncle Ezeklel, and Uncle Jim,
how different and how much each
contributes to life. Uncle Ezek-
lel's contributions amount to the
round-vsmn. of twelve millions
thrust upon the heaflaofan un
prepared commonplace 1nephewff "Pf ant prose of humor will

nation is justice, kindness and
The story is a Joy in Its com
plexity. A small town in the end
of the nineteenth centhry, dudes
and surprises, children of yester
day and today's unmanageable re
sult. The Glory Hole which its
frontispiece defines as a hole
through which one looks Into a
fiery furnace carries its readers
with it looking Into the glory hole
of life's furnace with its seething
unrest and inconsistency.
