in which the fish liveu. Immense fish, twice as large as Sunshine, swam majest- ically about, nodding to one another with slow fins. The place was a riot of color. The shrub, surrounding the village, was multi- ple-colored. Some plants were a deep violet at the bottom, and gradually grew lighter as they went up. fading into a light blue. which in turn, grew dark and changed to green. and then a light yellow at the top. Others were just as varied in their shading. but of different colors. Suddenly I looked at Sunshine in alarm, for he had taken on a most ferocious ap- pearance, and was slowly swimming toward me. I could not take my eyes MAROON AND WHITE from him. Unable to move, I could only stand and stare at him. He was now on top of me, and had opened his mouth wide. I looked down the interior of his mammoth, cave-like throat, and felt his breath like a warm breeze against myself. I was now inside his mouth and still un- able to move a muscle. I was covered with perspiration and trembled all over. His mouth closed behind me and I started to fall into those inter depths. I fell down, down, down, losing consciousness. I felt light and was being suffocated. My breath was getting shorter. I could not breathe. I was falling, falling, going, going, . . . STANLEY HENRY, Class of 1933. JOHN GALSWORTHY On January 31, 1933, the world's newspapers proclaimed in headlines the death of John Galsworthy. Why is this English author deserving of such honors on both sides of the Atlantic, when there are so many hundreds of outstanding Writers? Why are the lovers of goold literature mourning his death? John Gals- worthy has found a spot in the hearts of the people not only because of his ex- cellent work as a novelist, playwright. poet, ,and lecturer, but also for his charm and the genuineness of his democratic ideals. One writer has said that when he re- calls Galsworthy he sees his smile. "It is not an impulsive smile, not the smile that ripples over a face unbidden: it is the smile of one who seems to have set him- self to smile, and would rather cry." For Galsworthy being such a sensitive person was greatly affected by the sorrows of life. but one only learned this through his writing, for in public Galsworthy smiled. Above 'I have said that this great author is remembered for his democratic principIes. and I may illustrate my point by the fact that when he had built up his fine reputation, a knighthood was offered him. but he declined it. This tall, gallant gentle- man was unlike most masters of literary production in that he was characterized by a restrained, deliberate habit of mind. Gals- NINETEEN THIRTY-THREE worthy's style seemed to be very much like himself, for this lean, subdued person em- ployed an exceedingly direct and clear method: he displayed extremes in emotions sparingly but his sympathies were broad and deep: he was most certainly a humani- tarian in his love of birds and animals. After reading "Escape," a play, and some of Galsworthy's poems, I was struck by the note of reform in his work, and his likeness to Charles Dickens in that both exposed moral and economic evils in their work. Prom Galsworthy's intellectual, digni- fied countenance, his firm features, his de- tached and distinguished manner, We would expect that he might be a judge. We are not very far amiss. for the author studied for the bar in his early years, but although he became a barrister, he did not practice law. However, the legal atmos- phere is present in his novels and plays: he must have the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth: his plot may be compared to the building up of a case, and his legal trait may be shown in his analysis, in the details of character and inanimate objects. and in his sense of pro- portion. But let us consider solely Mr. Gals- worthy's contributions as a poet of mod- ern verse. In this phase of his work his ability to see life as it is and to convert Page One Hundred and Thirty-Hu
