The playwright is a io;rfer who is interested solely in tin money ami tame' his writing will \n\n^ him. By this eonlras), iVr. l.t-wi.s says bUinll.v thai the Ann-vk-jii business hian ofierv lias much mure of the "artistic spirit" than the artist hiin- self. Now this seems lo hcve'lho critics v running around in circles. Their comments have been varied, i/nt mostly they agree Hint Mr. Uv.:s hinisel'f is, at bottom, a Babbitt, thai this latest efVort is simply u |K)t-boiler, in which he Itas got down <jlf his artistic ixjcleslal mid has given way to.his old admiration for the successful money-getter. In oilier words, they have been very busy explaining how a writer of iUr. Lewis' cnlibui- could ir,<ifcc such an odd mistake. * * a The one thing that seesns not lo have occurred lo Uieni i.- ; thai Mr. Lewis' thesis might be ii'.iilc correct. There has grown up i:\ American artistic circles in the last deciule a mieur and illogical notion, t-j-wil: Thai even Ihe most metlioere and talentless of writing persons is entitled by the very nature of things, lo look down with contempt on the most able and devoted of business men. * * * We have been assured' Ill-it tlie man who follows one of thr. arts, even if lie_ does it without skill and without si'iril, is a more admirable ami valuable chap than the man who puts i" bis licks ;n the marls ( ,r trade. ^' lll 's Mr. Lewis has tlu:ie. in this OUT OUR WAY nuiv novul of his, i.s to k-slfw a liuiirly raspberry on this iinwi- notion and ilfiiioii.stntle lliat t lit. 1 re is milling in it.
