Vacation
To keep the channels of transportation open for necessary
business the government has asked us to relinquish all unneces-
sary travel during the period of the war. This will entail some
sacrifice of vacation plans and pleasures for many of us, but it is
a sacrifice we ought to make willingly for our country and for
those who are yielding up their lives to maintain it. There are
other ways in which a vacation can be filled with profit and enjoy-
ment. If we can not travel in fact we can do it vicariously by
means of books. Good works of travel and description exist in
abundance which will enable you to visit practically any country
in the world while you lounge on the porch, sit by the lake-side,
or swing in a hammock under the trees.
Let Us Help You
to select some of these for y.our recreative reading. This is a
good time to familiarize yourself with the places you want to see
and to renew your impressions of those you have already seen.
What you get out of a trip depends largely upon what you bring
to it, so knowledge acquired in advance is an interest bearing
deposit here as well as in other departments. "One man goes four
thousand miles to see Italy and does not see it, he is so short-
sighted," says George William Curtis in his little classic, Prue
and I, "Another is so far-sighted that he stays in his room and
sees more than Italy."

Beginning July 1st, Mr. Cargill, Assistant
Librarian of the Milwaukee Public Library,
will assume the duties of Camp Librarian at
Camp Grant, Rockford, Illinois. This is one
of the oldest and best equipped of the camp
libraries. It contains more than 15,000 vol-
umes of well selected literature, being espe-
cially well provided with books on military
science and related technical subjects such
as radiotelegraphy and aviation. There is
also a large collection of "war" books. Ad-
ditions are being made rapidly. Mr. Cargill
will remain at Camp Grant for two months.
The August C. Beck Co. has generously
contributed twenty boxes for shipping books
to camp libraries. Any other manufactur-
ers able to assist in this way will find the
library in a receptive attitude.
Mr. Asa Don Dickinson, Dispatch Agent
of A. L. A. War Service, writes as follows:
"Received for shipment to our soldiers and
sailors overseas, 42 boxes of books. A fine
lot of books-very well prepared."
PREPAREDNESS FOR RECON-
STRUCTION
Already, the necessity of preparing for
the immense problems which will arise after
the war is evident. Every one will have to
share in solving these problems. The in-
dividual, city, state and nation will be af-
fected. England has already a branch of
the government which is dealing only with

reconstruction. The Municpal Reference
Library is making a special effort to make
available governmental reports and investi-
gations and any other information which
may offer a solution of the many difficul-
ties which will be encountered.
WAR HOUSING
Milwaukee is feeling the lack of proper
housing facilities to care for the numerous
workers employed on government work.
Many complaints have been made regarding
high rentals and actual lack of rooms.
Mayor Hoan has appointed a committee
which is to investigate and propose remedies
for the difficulty. If you are interested in
what has been done you will find in the
Municipal Reference Library many plans
and reports of English cities, and what the
cities in this country are proposing to do.
THE TRAINING CLASS
The first class in the new course of in-
struction for the Public Library Service
has completed its work and has taken the
civil service examination. Even at this early
(lay, before any members of this class have
been tried by a temporary appointment, it is
clear that systematic instruction in the li-
brary work is a great gain to the institution.
The Civil Service Commission has permitted
the library to employ these young people
in practice work while they were taking
their instruction, and their adaptability to
any position that they were called on to fill
temporarily was very evident. It is not
strange that this is found to be so. We are
always preaching the benefits of education.
Anyone who expresses a doubt of that prop-
osition will immediately feel the heavy hand
of public opinion upon him. No one would
be given a position as teacher without pre-
liminary instruction in his business. No
lawyer or doctor would be permitted to
practice without preliminary instruction in
his business; and by the same reasoning,
it must be evident that any one who would
do special or technical work, such as is done
in the library, is a better public servant in
consequence of preliminary training in his
work. This is made plain in the Milwaukee
Public Library not only as a matter of
theory, but as a matter demonstrated by ex-
perience. Civil Service Commissions have
no divinely inspired wisdom to pick out
public servants who are well qualified with-
out training for their duties. Therefore,
the Board of Library Trustees wisely deter-
mined to offer special training free of cost
to those who sought to do library work.
Our Civil Service law, however, goes fur-
ther. It makes it necessary for those who
would win promotion in library work, to



					
				
				
THE LIBRARY LOG

prepare themselves for the promotion.
Therefore, all library workers will do well
to remember that hereafter any number of
years spent in doing merely the routine
duties of the day will not win promotion.
There must be a distinct effort made to
study and progress in the special work of
one's choice. Those who fail to do this
work will fail to win promotion. The new
law places the responsibility exactly where
it belongs, and no one hereafter need com-
plain that his services and abilities are not
recogiiize-d, if he fails to win recognition.
Whether this is a wise law entirely or
whether the method is the best method that
can be devised are questions unnecessary to
discuss at present. These are the methods
which the laws of Visconsin prescribe in
the library service of the city. The part
of wisdom is for each one to recognize the
fact and play the game under the conditions
prescribed by the law. The Library Board
has done all it can to provide the means of
advancement. It is now the duty of those
who would win advancement to use the
means provided.
The new training class will begin its work
July 8th at the Public Library Building.
HOW TO JUDGE A NOVEL
In the not very far distant past, novel
reading was considered a disreputable occu-
pation and the young person seeking a po-
sition on the staff of a public library who
gravely informed the librarian that she
"loved books and nercr read novels", is not
yet in her dotage. We of today read novels
quite shamelessly, carry them about with
us, read them on street cars, trains and in
other like public places, and certainly have
no disposition to apologize for being "caught
with the goods". It is very true that the
reading public ought to be ashamed of the
kind of novel which is often very popular,
but we have learned that there are novels
and novels and that, as Richard Burton puts
it, "Fiction is only frivolous when the read-
er brings a frivolous mind or makes a frivo-
lous choice". We are none of us willing to
answer to the charge of having minds ca-
pable only of frivolity and if we are to avoid
the frivolous choice we must know how to
choose.
In the field of literary criticism no form
of literature is more difficult to handle than
the novel. It does not, however, follow
that we need abandon all hope of independ-
ent judgment and rely entirely upon the
professional critic. There are a few well
defined tests which we may apply to any
novel and be sure of arriving at a conclu-
sion with regard to the book's merit which
shall serve all practical purposes of the
average reader. Mr. William Lyon Phelps
describes a high grade novel as "A good

story, well told." In other words, Mr.
Phelps takes account first of the intrinsic
value of the content of the book and sec-
ondly he regards the author's manner of
presenting his subject. Our definition is
certainly concise, though it is not quite so
innocent as it looks, and it will answer for
a working basis.
Our first test question with regard to the
content of a novel should be "Is this story
in itself worth the telling?" We demand
that an author shall not write unless he has
ideas which it is worth our while to con-
sider. A "good story" is a good story be-
fore ever it is put on paper, though an au-
thor may work havoc by his manner of
telling the story. There is no hard and
fast rule as to an author's choice of subject
matter for a good novel. All of life fur-
nishes material for the successful novelist.
Arnold Bennett's first successful novel, "The
Old Wives' Tale", details events in the drab
lives of two old sisters, while adventure
a plenty spelled success and permanent
value for "Robinson Crusoe".
The second question with regard to the
story itself is, "Is it interesting to the class
of readers for whom it is intended?" In-
terest depends upon several elements in the
author's work as well as upon the intrinsic
value of his ideas. Originality is one im-
portant factor in holding the interest of the
reader. The mind is attracted and stimu-
lated by that which is fresh and unhack-
neyed. Then too the author often kills in-
terest by dragging in irrelevant material,
therefore he must stick to his theme with
only reasonable digressions. We are not
much interested in the rambling type of
narrative which constantly takes us off into
byways when we wish to be traveling the
main road.
The next test question may very well be
"Are the characters real people?"  False
psychology is one of the worst sins of the
novelist. Very few novelists succeed in ab-
solutely truthful character deliniation but
the really good novel at least approaches
perfection in this respect. Right here is the
worst pitfall for the inexperienced reader.
Interest may be held by various qualities
in the author's work and the reader be
actually duped by the author's presentation
of people, their actions and emotions, as
in reality they are not. It takes a reader
of considerable experience in living to read-
ily detect this fault in an interesting novel,
but once the mind is awake on the subject
we are sure to feel outraged by the novelist
who foists upon us an impossible character.
We do not wish to be lied to concernins
the workings of the human mind and soul.
The novel full of false psychology dies an
early death, but it very frequently runs a
swift race as a "best-seller".
Another test question is "Does this author
show creative imagination?" A really worth
while novel leaves in the mind of the reader
vivid pictures and memories of people who

3



					
				
				
THE LIBRARY LOG

are not readily forgotten. This intangible
quality of vitality is hard to analyze but
not at all difficult to detect and it covers
a multitude of sins in the matter of literary
form. This question is especially applicable
to the novel having a well defined plot.
The last, and perhaps the most important,
question with regard to the content of our
novel under consideration is "What of the
spirit of this book?" The author must be
sincere, a pose is not to be tolerated. Grant-
ed that the book is interesting, what of the
quality of that interest? Is it secured by
sensational and melodramatic appeals to the
emotions or is the author above such pan-
dering to our lower natures? Self-restraint
is one of the cardinal virtues of the really
good novel writer. Finally are you in any
way influenced for good by having read this
book? Do not confuse this with mere pleas-
ure, though the purely amusing type of fic-
tion has its place. A very good novel very
frequently gives you no pleasure whatsoever,
but it may do you much good by a process
which is analogous to a needed surgical
operation.
Now as to how the author tells his story,
the examination of the book as to the merits
of its form:-Is the author's style good? Is
his work artistic? Has he conformed to
the laws of graimar, rhetoric and logic?
Much depends upon these points though we

are apt to more readily forgive sins against
good form than sins affecting the content
of the book. Once in a while we come
across such a novel as Phillpott's "Brunel's
Tower" which is so beautifully written as
to be pure joy to the lover of good English.
It would be well if more of our really good
novelists set a high standard in this respect.

BOOK NOTES FOR BUSY PEOPLE

Abbot, Willis J. Aircraft and Submarines.
1918. Putnam. $3.50                623.74-A12
Neither "flying machines" nor submarine craft
have been with us long enough to have lost ro-
mantic interest. Mr. Abbot's book is a complete
and accurate account of the two inventions of
which he says, "Not since gunpowder was first
emiploNed in warfare has so revolutionary a con-
tribution to the sc-ience of slaughtering men been
moade as by the perfection of aircraft and sub-
marines. '' The popular idea that both the art
of flying and that of navigating the depths of the
ocean are very recent developments is refuted by
a detailed account of the slow stages by which
success was finally attained. Air. Abbot writes
entertainingly and his book is one of the best
popular presentations of the subjects treated.
Boirac, I;mile. The Psychology of the Fu-
ture.  1918. Stokes. $2.50            130-B68
Thought-transference, hypnotism, clairvoyance,
mental suggestion and spiritualism  are topics
which we have been wont to consider as perhaps
rather fascinating but certainly to be considered
as outside the realm   of provable facts.  Mr.
Boirac, a noted French psychologist, has spent
years at the most careful and painstaking in-
vestigation of these subjects. and has made count-
less experiments.  He presents his results as
thoroughly proved scientific truths.  One great
virtue of his book is his clear explanations of
the terms he uses. To many this makes the book
much more understandable than the work of most
noted investigators. The care with which he re-
(ounts and explains various psychic phenomena
is also a great point in the book's favor.

Gerard, James      W.    Face   to  Face   with
Kaiserism. 1918. Doran. $2.00
940.91-G356f
'What I want especially to impress upon the
people of the United States is that we are at
war because Germany iNvaded the Vnited States-
an invasion insidiousl y concecid and vigorously
prosecuted for years before hostilities began;-
that this war is our war;-that the sanctity of
American freedom and of the American home de-
pend on what we do NOW.'' Such a statement
its this made by a man who has, above all Amer-
icans, had opportunity to judge of Germany's
culpability, should at once dispel any lurking
doubt as to the full justification of the United
States for being in this war. Mr. Gerard re-
turned to America and tound his fellow citizens,
many of them. not fully awake to the phases of
the situation as eviden-ed by German diplomatic
methods. "Face to Face with Kaistrisn" con-
tinues the narrative begun in "Miy Four Years
in Germany", telling the story of Mr. Gerard's
experiences up to the tom  of his return to the
United States.
Grow, Malcolm C. Surgeon Grow; an
American in the Russian Fighting. 1918.
Stokes. $1.50                  940.91-G884
Any book which gives Its light on the subject
of Russia and the Russians is more than wel-
come. This book recounts the personal experi-
enes of a surgeon who offered his services to
the sadly inadequate Russian medical staff. The
conditions under which it,- Russian army fought,
the gradual undermining of morale by extensive

4



					
				
				
THE LIBRARY LOG

German influence and German methods of warfare
are factors accounting for much in recent Russian
history.  The author lived through battles in
close contact with all of the horrors of war and
he knows the truth of the many interesting and
rather unusual phases of his experiences.
Harris, Emerson P., and others. Co-opera-
tion; the Hope of the Consumer.          1918.
Macmillan. $2.00                   334-H31
The consumer is, at the present date, apt to
attributo all of his troubles in getting ttie ne-.
cessities of life to war conditions. Mr. Harris
shows very satisfactorily that the present system
of distribution must bear at least a large share
of the blame. He shows that goods are forced
on the consumer through a system of advertising
for which tie has to pay; that adulteration and
short weight are not only possible utit are en-
couraged; that unnecessary costs in distribution
are incurred and that the whole system is vicious
and anti-social in its effects.  Co-operation is
the obvious remedy for all of these evils and a
scheme known as the lkochdale co-operative buy-
ing plan is describell. There are reports of va-
rious co-operative societies and the text of the
Wisconsin co-operative law. Mr. Harris has given
much time to the study of this subject and is
president of the Montclair Co-operative Society.
Knyvett, R. H. "Over There" with the Aus-
tralians.  1918. Scribner. $1.50
940.91-K74
This is one of the most interesting of the per-
stoal narratives of the war. Captain Knyvett died
of tuberculosis in a New York hospital when ie
was on his way back to France after being sent
home to Australia as unfit for further service.
The response of Australia to the call to arms, the
training of the new army and Captain Knyvett's
own experiences as private and intelligence of-
ficer when lie ''kept his eye on Fritz" very ef-
fectually make most interesting reading. There
is a breezy, wholesoi atmosphere about the book,
perhaps suggestive of Australian life and view-
point.
Lane, Franklin K. The American Spirit.
1918. Stokes. $.75                  321.8-L26
Mr Lane. secretary of the interior, gives us
a volume of addresses which are very well worth
the reading.  Nearly all of the topics have a
bearing on the war, and bear such titles as:
The American spirit; The American pioneer; The
rights of neighbors: Why do we fight Germany;
A new and greater America; Makers of the flag.
The tone of the book is sane as well as in-
spirational and is the kind of reading one might
wish to place in the hands of the youth of the
nation, though it is by no means unsuited to the
mature mind.
LeGallienne, Richard.       Pieces   of   Eight.
1918. Doubleday. $1.40                  L3807
One is inevitably reminded of Stevenson and
'Treasure Island' by this refreshing romance of
Mr. LeGallienne's, but the book is very inter-
esting nevertheless. It is a tale of treasure hunt-
ing in the Bahama islands and there is adventure
enough to satisfy any boy or man or girl or
women who loves the good, old-fashioned, whole-
some story which makes one forget for a time
the things of everyday life. The author's ability
to make of such a tale as theis, which is entirely
old as to theme and incidents, a thoroughly meri-
torious work, is tie very largely to the literary
charm which pervades all that Mr. LeGallienne
writes.
Middleton, Edgar. Glorious Exploits of the
Air. 1918. Appleton. $1.35 940.91-M62

"Along with a considerable amount of infor-
mation about sit- training of fliers. the wisdom
that has to be evolved in them and the develop-
ient of aeronautical knowledge and skill, the
book fairly brims with stories told in a lively
style about the British fliers by land and sea.
'There are chapters describing bombing raids,
Zeppelin fighting, flights across firing lines, and
tither incidents of aerial warfare that are full of
thrills. A chapter on the German air service comt-
pares British and German points of -view, methods
id achievements."
N. Y. Timcs.
Miller, Warren H.       Camping     Out.   1918.
Doran. $1.50                        796-M65c
If you are going camping this summer you will
do well to read this book before you go. You
will find every possible phase of camping life
provided  for.  Whether you   go   "Automobile
camping'', take a canoe voyage or simply go on
a ' hike" for a few days, you will find it profit-
able to go well and sensibly equipped and in-
formed as to your duties as a good camper.
Pinkerton, Robert D. "Ladies from Hell".
1918.  Century. $1.50              940.91-P65
The title of this book is lurid, most certainly.
It is the term applied by the German soldiers to
the first soldiers in kilts with whom the Germans
came in contact. Mr. Pinkerton was a member
of the London Scottish regiment and his book is
written for the American public with the very
evident intention of waking us up. Thte author
makes an honest, clear-headed appeal with much
to create in this country a better understanding
of what thi war means and what it will mean
before we are through with it.
Professor Latimer's Progress; a Novel of
Contemporaneous Adventure. 1918. Holt.
$1.40                               P12451
The professor's reaction to the war was so
disastrous to his health that his doctor ordered
him off on a month's vacation which took the
form of a ramtble through New England hills. He
met with divers characters by the way, alt of
them, from strong' minded sister Harriet to the
"movie" queen, the efficiency expert. the factory
inspector, the medical specialist, "tinkers of
civilization '.  Finally  the  professor  returns  to
his wife, sane as to mind. whole as to body. The
book has heen compared to ''Mr. Britling Sees
it Through", in that it reflects the American
temperament in its attitude toward the war and
its problems, as ''Mr. Britling"  reflected the
British temperament in its attitude toward like
conditions. The authorship of the book has been
attributed to Simeon Strunsky.
White, William A. The Martial Adventures
of Henry     and   Me.    1918.   Macmillan.
$1.50                                W6457
Mr. William  Allen White and Mr. Henry J.
Allen. both Kansas men, went to France as in-
spectors for the Red Cross. Both men are news-
paper editors and Mr. White is known as a novel
writer. "Here we were." says Mr. White, ''two
middle aged men, nearing fifty years going out
to a ruthless war without our wives."      The
American setise of humor is everywhere displayed
in descriptions of experiences on the western
front, with short visits to Italy and England.
Just a shade too much of this spirit would have
grated on the sensibilities as a flippant treatment
of serious matters. Mr. White has not this fault,
however, and simply leaves in the mind a cheery
feeling that whatever difficulties the war may pre-
sent America is going to keep a spirit which re-
fuses to be killed.
