Whatever they do out there, they never do it by hiilvcs. In many ways Chicago is extremely admirable, ami in some ways it is a portent for the thoughtful; but either way, it is a 100-pcrconlcr. Restraint is never one of its watchwords. Whether it be headed in the right direction or the \\TOIIJV one, 'at leasb it is not standing still. It is going somewhere with all its \\o\v- er. AH of this, for some reason, is brought to reading what liaii- peiidcd when Chicago's 1930 census figures were announced. The city was found to have 3,373,753 inhabitants—some 672,000 more than it had 10 years ago, a growth larger than its fondest boosters had dared to hope for. The news was received in typical Chicago fashion. ; Factory whistles were lied down and their blasts split the air. Flags were run up on every available pole. Neigh- orhood mass meetings were held, leading citizens made speeches and loud cheers were given. Long festoons of ticker tape shot out of office building windows in the Loop, and the streets took on a carnival air. Chicago had broken.a new record, and her citizens were not at all backward in rejoicing • about it. What other city celebrates its growth in that mannerV Not even Los Angeles, supposed to possess the' most 'ar. dent boosters'alive. Nowhere'on earth probably, but in Chicago do things • happen in that exuberant way. Now at the same time that Chicago was celebrating her growth, her police force was running around in circles trying to find out who killed a reporter. . This particular murder came as the climax to many years, of gang warfare. ; For more than half a-decade Chicago's ; gang had made the city's name fain• ous all over the world. The killing ot" the reporter was simply the underworld's last word in studied, insolent defiance—a sneering "what arc you going to do about it?" that seems almost incredible to one who does not know Chicago. ! These two phenomena—the sonsa- ; tional gang murder and the public ; celebration over unexpectedly rapid municipal growth—rightly went hand, in hand. They are intimately connected. It was not by accident that they came in the same week. Chicago, you see, is the distilled essence of America. Rapid growth, amaxing industry, alert self-confidence, unrestrained enthusiasm, rough-and- tumble energy—these typically American traits are focused all together in Chicago. And the things that jru with them— misgovsrmneiU, rotten politics, inefficient defense against crime, an untamed underworld—these tilings, too, are very American, and inevitably they are centered in Chicago. That is why Chicago i< interesting. Her surprising growth, her pride in her newness and rawness and lawlessness— those are America. They are Chicago. They combine to produce a life that is quick, boisterous and sometimes, rowdy—but never dull.—NKA. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark THE WINDMILL Thcmiis A.

VIRGINIA DARK'S BIHTI! On Alii'. 18, 1587, Virginia Dare, ic first child torn in America 1 English parents, was born on oanoke Island, Va., now a part of orih Carolina. Sir Walter Halelgh was trying to ound a colony in this region hich he called Virginia in honor f Queen Elizabeth, ihc Virgin 'he new baby, ua-rclore, was nam- d for the country. She was the landdaughler of John While, who 'as sent out by Raleigh as gov- rnor ol the lioanokc colony. Two days after her birth she was aptized "according to the rites 01 lie Church of England." This was he first celebration of the rite of 3hrlstlan baptism of a North Am- rican born while child.

Tide," by John Still, I think you will change your mind. Mr. Still makes this quiet, thoughtful book one of the most appealing publications of the summer. Apparently he has spent the greater part ot his life in the jungles, although he has acquired, somc-whcrf 1 , an excellent command of English; and what he does is simply describe the things lie has seen and heard there, from long- buried cities to folk-legends thai were old when the Romans still ruled Britain, and from the habits of crocodiles to the perils of hunting a wounded buffalo In a jungle swamp, Most writers adopt a "Well, it is fast, disappearing" air in writing about the wilderness. Mr. Stilt does not. He has a strong suspicion that the jungle, in Ceylon at least, will eventually triumph over the "ivliile man, and :LC looks forward whimsically to the ilay—a century or two hence, he says— when antiquarians will push into the jungle to investigate the ruins of Eng- sne knows to this day what became 1 it. The "Lost Colony ot lioan- jke" is regarded as one of the mys- erics of history. One legend is hat the colonists Intermarried with he Indians and arc the ancestors ol the present band ot Croatan Indians living in the southern part of N'orth Carolina, who number about 300. William Strachey, on the other :iand, writing in 1013, slates "the men, women and childrc-u of the irst plantation of Roanoke were killed by practice and command- nent of Powhatan."

Man seems to there only on sufferance, ant Mr. Still gives you the notion that perhaps that is just as well. Whei tells you of his Iwo lame leopards, as playful and harmless as :wo house cats, and of the tame bear that followed him on his walks about town, you envy him his good fortune of living in a land when such things can happen. "The Jungle Tide" is issued 05 the Houghton, Miffliii Co. at S3, Victorian Chicago—Before the Day ot Gangsters. In "Years of Grace." Margare Aycr Barnes recalls the famslou Chicago of ,the '90s—the Chicas< that was still an overgrown town with an intimate, select social cir cle and no pineapple-tossers o hiack-urowed booze runners to giv it the sinister reputation it ha today.

"The Hound of I-'lorcncc" 'ill KnU'rlaln You. If you were one of Ihc many pco- le who read "Bambi." you have •cbably already bought Kcllx Salen's "The Hound of Florence." If mi haven't, it would be a good lea lo do so at once—provided, of ourse. that you can stand a bit f whimsical sleight-of-hand with our reading. "The Hound of Florence" tells .[ a young Italian of Renaissance lays who is, by magic, privileged o spend eveiy other day as a coach do 0r , resuming his own body each dternate midnight. Desciibed thus isldly, this sounds like balder- lash, I know; but Mr. Saltcn is iblc to write slories of Ihat kind itid make you like it, and "The [found of I 7 lorcnce" is vcty well Dandled. Simon and Schuster are U:c publishers. The book sells al $2.50. [lore's a UodKr I'udge of Worth While Itcailing. We come next to a handful miscellaneous hooks which ntie, as well be- disposed of now as later. "Very Good. Jeeves." is a scries of short stories by P. G. Wods- housc revolving about that miraculous gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves. Almost anything by Wodehousc is a good bet, if you like to laugh; this book about the impeccable, omniscient valet is no exception, noublcday, Doran and Co., will let you have it for 51. Then there is "The Coldslone," by Patricia Wentworth. a novel about a young man who inherits an English country estate only to discover an ancestral curse, secret underground passages, buried treasure, sundry prowling rascals and a very congenial girl. If that's your dish, hop to it. The story is just a little bit. involved, but it's not bad reading. The publisher is Lippincott; the price is $2. I would like, also to commend to you "Great Sea Stories of All Nations," ediled by H. M. Tomlinson and published by Doubleduy. Doran al So. I have never seen a collection of tales of the sea half so comprehensive as Ihis one, and Mr. Tomlinson's introduction alone is' almost wortli the price.
