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-

Class of 1933.
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.

and the genuineness of his democratic
One writer has said that when he re-

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-

man was unlike most masters of literary
production in that he was characterized by
a restrained, deliberate habit of mind. Gals-
worthy's style seemed to be very much like

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

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-
