The Tragedy in a Life of Vain Revolt There is a pathetic no to in Ihi: otherwise siMHiJing antiotimt'tiinil of bL'iUilifnl young Nila Crmu Cook tlial she is llnwigh wilh the life of abnegation she had leil as a diseiplt of the Malwlmu Gaiullii. :inil Uiiil henceforth she will .seek the. freedom ami gaiety of the world. The discordant note ri'it's out from the fear that Miss Cook will become just as disappointed, just as (li.sillusion- «i, in Hie new life as slv: had become in the old. This is no sad commentary on life in general. It is based, rather, what is known of the CnoU meiil and nursonahly, (he nihul- liousness that characteri/al the Cook tradition. The talented nmvlisl ttrul pluywriglil, George Cram Cook, died a brokenhearted and disillusioned man when lie failed in his revolt agahrt the "false" pleasures of the modern wurld. Now his. daughter, inheriting his emotional traits, would cast off the very mantle of despair that he hiul left her. + * f The tragic life of the "Great Soul" of India, the miseries oi those millions of untouchables, brought alwut the same feeling of revolt wli-ch previously had caused her to turn from the ways into which she ha:l been born. Jlit's Cook's experience is worthy of serious consideration by the thousands of young men and women who today seem to see nothing but despair and frustration before them, in their struggle for the liner things of life. * * « They may cry out Hie selfishness, the greed, and lhr> materialism of the day. They even may stimulate the experience of Miss Cook and devote themselves lo a regimen of self- denial and protestation airainst the modern world. Rut they will find themselves returning to the very life they abhor, and then they will discover that the true . protest, the most effective weapon they have, is one of participation in this world to the end that it may become a better means of existence for all. In. avoiding this roundabout way of making themselves felt in this life, our youth of today also will avoid the OUT OUR WAY Cook sclf.

His mood, as a raitter of fact, was nulto tho reverse. Bannister looked again at the door of McN'cal's office, scowled and returned to the press room. • • • 'TiHE news that Deuiso Lang had identified the blond prisoner as the girl she had seen talking with | Tracy King two days before appearing exclusively in the Evening Post that afternoon but the full story of what happened behind that closed door was reserved for the morning newspaper.
