STUDIES OF WAR Authors Cry Out Against Horrors of Conflict in New Volumes To many of us the World War Is almost as remate as the Civil war and the question of war is mainly concerned with whether or not col lege students should be required to take military drill In the face of the fact that the next war will be fought mainly with gas the prob lem of military drill seems a small side of the many faceted problem How serious the problem is and what an indictment of civilization it is that the world is steadily ad vancing toward a conflict is brought out in Vera Brlttains new book The Testament of Youth an auto biographical study or the years 1900 to 1925 Miss Brittain is a member of the generation which was just finishing its school days in 1914 Her book was written to rescue something that might be of value some element of truth and hope and youthfulness from the smashing up of my own youth by the war Miss Brlttatn points out that her book has not the mature proprieties of emotion remembered in tranquility but at least is to challenge that too easy too com fortable relapse into forgetfulness which Is responsible for historys moat grievous repltitlons About Her Childhood Miss Brittain tells the story of her childhood in Staffordshire her education at St Monicas and at Oxford university which was so rudely interrupted by the war She served as a V A D in London Prance and Malta and during the war lost her brother and her fiance All the horror and suffer ing which she underwent are told with passionate clarity The genu ineness of her book is its outstand ing merit Its tendency is to de press the reader rather than to fire him with any enthusiasm to im prove our modern situation Storm Jameson a contemporary at Miss Brittalns in her recent publication No Time Like the Present deals more briefly with much the same experience as Miss Brittains Of her generation she says It will be easy to make fun of me or to pretend that I have tried to make us out wonderful or remarkable We were neither but something happened to us that makes us different and gives to US who are left the right to hold our selves stiff Less difficult and depressing Miss Jamesons book which also in dicts society for its lassitude is easier to read and stirs the reader more She spares no one in her out cry against civilization and is par ticularly bitter against the church women and writers Of writers she says Novelists should be setting the scene for the next act but are too forward front applauding each other or keeping sharp eyes on the box office to know what is prepar ing in the wings Two Things Incredible Two things are incredible Miss Jameson writes a gen eration which has known war should submit to preparations for another and that if and when it comes our spiritual leaders will fail us again as badly as they failed us in 1914 Of her sex she com plains Why do women not know that in any war the enemy is not on the other side the enemy Is the war itself In connection with Miss Brit tains book a new novel by Wini fred Holtby Mandoa Mandoa is interesting because it is dedicated to her and because Miss Holtby is mentioned so conspicuously in Testament of Youth Mandoa a comedy of irrelevance is the story of the com ing of modern civilization to Lola gola in Mandoa a Catholic colony In Abyssinia It is sprightly and ironic reading and has a messago much like the books of Miss Brit tain and Miss Jameson in a lighter vein What had Europe and Amer ica to offer these alien people People said that the fabric of civ ilization was crumbling even in tha oldest countries The flood of bar barism might pour back across the world as it did in the dark ages is the authors conclusion F L Kelly Drives Into Parked Auto Glasses Are Broken P L Kelly 1412
