But alas, conditions are so very
bad that Mr. MacNeill cannot leave
his post o f duty in Mexico to enjoy
his usual annual vacation on the
Rogue. He has our heartfelt sym
pathy. None other o f our annual
visitors gets such pure unalloyed
enjoyment out of a visit to the
Rogue as he. Zane Grey writes that
he will be here early in September
and pack into his new camp half
way between here and the sea. Grey
loves to break contact with civiliza
tion and hide away for a while in
some vast wilderness. The sound
o f the automobile is not music to
his ears and the smell o f burning
oil and gasoline doesn't appeal to
his senses like the fragrance of the
pines. He gets his best inspirations
from Nature and the lonely desert,
the wide expanse o f the ocean or
the wild rocky canyon o f a moun
tain river is his natural environ
ment With his wonderful power
o f description he brings this en
vironment to his millions of readers
and many lives are made brighter
and happier by enjoying this en
vironment with him in imagination.
Grey is perhaps the greatest living
