Dramatic Story of the Murder and the Greatest Man Hunt in History THE most important man hunt In the history of American crime A was the pursuit ot the actor, John Wilkes Booth, who shot President Lincoln while he at In hl box In Forda Theatre, Wash - ington, at the evening performance of "Our American Cousin," on April 14, 1865. The assassination took place five days after General Lee surrendered the army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox, thus bringing the Civil War to a close, Why then did Booth decide to rommlt a crime which could not possibly be of any advantage to the southern cause, which was already lost? , Some time previous to the killing of Lincoln, Booth had conspired with half a dozen men to kidnap the President and carry him acrosa the Potomac and thence behind the lines of the Confederate army. Thi scheme, however, proved to be Impossible, so, as a last gesture of impotent wrath, a last and terrible blow to the haled and triumphant north, he resolved to strike down the Yankee' leader and, assisted' by his half - dozen conspirators try to tmke his escape. It. was a desperate deed, but the murderer got away. He broke .hi left ankle bone as he jumped .hurriedly from ihe box after firing he fatal shot - Rushed across the stage to an exit at rear of .the theatre, he mounted a horse being held there for him, and galloped off for the south and safety. The military detachment who pursued him did 'not come up with him until April 26. He managed to elude the - pursuers for 12 days , after he had committed one. of the most dastardly crimes of which history hold record. . . Dramatic Narrative A detailed and dramatic alory tit his crime and of tha long and painful flight of the 'assassin is told with greater detail and color than ever before in "Tha Man Who Killed Lincoln - by Philip VanDoren Stern (Macmlllan, Toronto). The author has searched diligently for material in War Department archives and in private and public collections of Llncolniana. He gives a long bibliography, and among the fifty or more books ha has read I notice one which I reviewed a couple of years ago, "Why Was Lincoln Murdered!" oy urro Vlepnachlml. I feel aure that Mr, Stern must have secured there, soma of his Information about the men behind Booth, politician r government officials, who, after Lincoln was shot, had the telegraph wlrea cut, who failed to block one or tne main exits from Washington, the very one which Booth chose, and who withdrew the man tola on to art as the guard In the Preaident's box. Mr. Stern does not bring the name of any high official or cabinet member Into his narrative aa Elsen - schlml does; he mentions the fact, however, that there must have been powerful aid behind those who actually carried out the plot. It was, however, rot the purpose of the author of this narrative to do more than hint at the, dark forces higher up. What ha set out to do, and has aucceeded hi doing with dramatic power, was to descrlhe the actiona of Booth previous to and following the crime. We follow every stage in Booth's fearful Journey until he paid wKh hjs own heart's blood for his mad deed. ., ; Fsct and Imagination ' Mr. Stern's sim in writing this book wa to use nothing but fart in describing incidents and persons encountered In ttia flight of Booth and his companion, a co - conaptrator named David Herold, a former druggist's clerk. But, It he ad been content to do this, his narrative would scarcely have exceeded In length three or four thousand words, whereas it fills 375 pages. He has therefore padded authentic historical material with imagination's extra. He has called psychoanalysis and dramatic coloring to his aid. In other words, he has used the method of a psychologist by reading the thoughts of Booth while alone. Mr. Stern also gives his actual words when Booth speaks to the low - hrowed young ruffian soldier, Lewis Paine, whom he persuades to try to murder cabinet minister Seward, who was ill In bed in his home, at the same time that he. Booth, despatched Lincoln. And as the horses gallop southward we are able to listen to the dialogue between Booth and Herold. BOOKS AT EATON'S DISCOVER YO 'RSELF By Psul Brunton.

Main Fleer, Donald PROF. W. T. ALLISON When they stop at Dr. Mudd's house near Bryantown not 40 miles from Washington, which they reached at 4 a.m. on April 15, the morning after the murder, we listen to Booth beg the doctor to set his broken leg which had been giving him excrulating pain even when he was on horseback. We hear the doctor tell him his ankle Is broken, a Pott's fracture, the fibula broken just above the ankle. We hear every word In "the three - cornered conversation between Booth, Dr. Mudd and Herold. And after the wild ride Is resumed later that day, we hear their talk as they make for the plantation of a man named Cox, a friend of Sur - ratt, one of the conspirator. ooth Dramatised Arriving there at midnight on April 15, Cox was appealed to for shelter and protection. Booth had to trust this man, a loyal southerner. The scene In Cox's housa in which Booth gives his motive for shooting Lincoln and the crushing reply from his host that he Was nothing but a common murderer and the aouth'a enemy Instead of friend is a fine piece of drama. But this and other dialogues along the way, are, of course, pure Invention, Just as Livy in ancient times put speeches Into the mouths of Roman generals and In this century Lytton Strachey took the same liberty with Queen Victoria, so Mr. Van Doren Stern dramatizes Booth. Historians have debated whether a soldier shot Booth when he was in his last refuge, a corn crib on Garrett's farm, or whether Booth turned his own gun on himself and committed' suicide. No one knows for certain just what happened, but Mr. Stern Imagines ha waa there and tells us that Booth allowed Herold to leave him and surrender o the enemy, telling him that he Jiad resolved not to be taken alive. w " ' Death Scene After the barn Is fired, Booth is mortall) wounded, hauled out on the grass, and left la die on the verandah of the farm house. He is a long time dying and Mr. Stern throws up this tragic scene as in a calcium glare. He follows the Strachey method in imagining just what Booth's thoughts were as he neared dissolution. The one word which darted into his brain was "uselessuseless! In his description of this man hunt Mr. Stern haa used every artifice of the dramatist. If we grant that this new way of writing history is to be commended, this book is a valuable experiment I should not like to see It extend ed too far, . else we shall find it difficult to distinguish fact from fancy, but there ia much to be said for the dramatized narrative, if the author sticks to the basic facta. How To Make It The Chemical Formulary, compiled by H. Bennett, editor in chief, and associates. Fourth edition. Chemical Publishing Co., New York. ' A handy reference book for chemists, photographers, technicians, farmers and so on, this 600 - page volume contains thousands of formulas and simple, accurate Instructions for making practically everything from moth - bane to mirrors. This Is not merely a jumble of old recipes but describes and explains the latest commercial pro - oessej in many lines of industry. It is well arranged and indexed, and will nil a niche as a real practical helper in many a technical library, small or large. One feature of it which appeals to the reviewer is Its candor. For example: "In splta of the fact that chest - rub are practically useless countless sufferers use them. . . Insect repellants may irritate aen - sitive skins. Moreover, they will not always work. Psychologically they often are helpful, even though they may not keep Insects away, because they give one confidence of protection. . . Fly sprays in some cases merely stun the flies who may later recover and begin burling again." The book Is far more than a guide to the judicious use of Meu - calyptus, cltronella and pyrethrum powder, however. It covers prac tically the whole range of com mercial and industrial chemistry. R.P. A Doctor Discusses Problems Of Eugenics Population, Race and Eugenics, by Morris Siege), M.D. Published by the author, 546 Barton St., E Hamilton, Ontario. In some respects a physician Is belter qualified than other spe cia lists to deal with this enormous and contentious subject, and Dr Slegel, while preser.tlng little In the way of original contribution, dis cusses its various aspects in a judi clous and informative way. He never forgets as do some writers in this field that It Is first, last and all the time a humar problem and his personal contact with cer tain cases wnose histories are significant gives the book a moder ate and reasonable tone. Dr. Siegel does a neat, workman - like and dispassionate job of marshalling the evidence against the Gobineau and Houston Chamberlain theory of Nordic supremacy. On the more general question of "sterilization of the Unfit" and of positive eugenics he la equally cau tlous regarding the supposed bene fits. Ha points out that environ ment Is either partially or wholly responsible for mental defect in some 75 percent of the cases, and is thus far from being an out - and - out, root - and - branch eugenical 1m prover. The book ia well documented and is well designed to live the casual reader a good general Introduction to the subject. Its bibliographies will serve well as a guide to those who wish to inform themselves in greater detail'. K.P. Arctic Mysteries WILHJAiLMUR. Stefanason, who was born on the shores of Lake Winnipeg and has won fame as an Arctic explorer, has written his 15th book, Unsolved Mysteries of the Aretie (The McMillan Co , New York). To Stephen Leacock, who wrote the amusing foreword from Old Brewry Bay, it may be a bit of a disappointment. Mr. Stefanason has taken five Intriguing northern mys teries' and set out to give his solution but he presents too much documentary argument, too many words, to hold the unflagging interest of the ordinary variety of armchair explorer. That ian't to my that the author doesn't aet his stage with a fluent hand or that there are not pages upon pages of engrossing reading. But there are more than 350 pages in the book, of which 60 are devoted to wesjisome. documenta tion on tie life and fate of Thomas Simpson,' Canadian explorer of 100 years' ago. The question never does seem to be definitely settled. Again (here are a score, at least. of pages which have the general purpose of proving that lime juice and similar old. stand - bys are ineffective as anti - scorbutics In other words, ' they don't prevent scurvy. Thia is apparently Mr. Stefanason's favorite theme and it doesn't look as If anything can be done about it. Llmejulct Or Meat . The explorer deals first, with Ihe lost Greenland colonv. ' Which at one time numbered 9,000 per sona and maintained a flourishing republic from 990 to 1:261 A D. The world, after Ignoring the col ony for a few years, suddenly found It had disappeared. Mr. Stefan' son suggests, very reasonably, that they were assimilated by the Eski mos. The lengthy chapter on the trag edy of the Sir John Franklin expedition acorns that old British dress for dinner" tradition, blames the alow death ol members of the party on faith in lime juice as an anti - acorbutic and failure to realize that fresh, fat meat was the secret of health in the far ncrth. There was evidence that seal and other Arctic game were present in the area in sufficient numbers to maintain tha party. Modern British explorers, Mr, Stefanason notes with pleasure, are more unbending and are really rather good at their work. , Andrea and Ltvanevaky There is probably more 'color in the chapter on the disappearance in 1897 of Major S.' A. And - ree, noted Swedish balloonist, and his two companions, than in any other. Probably because' the evidence ' available ia comparatively scant, this atory makes excellent reading. Mr. Stefanason's argument that the two last survivors were victims of carbon monoxide poisoning is not only ingenious but plausible. - The last chapter deals with the disappearance in 1937 of Sigusmund Levanevsky and his party of Rus sian fliers. It reveals nothing not already told numerous Winnipeg audiences by Sir Hubert Wilkins, who conducted Uhe main nearch on the North American side of the polar aiea. Mr. Stefanason spparentlv based moat of this chapter on what he himself waa told by Wilkins. Of interest ia his added analysis of ohancea that one or more mem bers of the party might still be alive, living by their rifles, provided they did not die in a crash of the plane or drift out to sea on a melting ice floe. He gives them one chance in 100. J.G. Westerns From France Contes et Legendes du Fsr - West (Tales and Legends of the Far - West), would have been of greater interest to Canadian readers had the authors, Ch. Quinel snd A. de Montgon, contrived to cross the border and find material for at least one of their many stories in the Canadian North - West. The volume haa an attractive dress and contains a large number of illustrations, most of them of Indians in dramatic attitudes or romantic settings. Published by the Fernand Nathan Press, Paris, the stories form the latest offering in the series Tales and Legends of all Countries. A.V.T. Leaves $513,000 Canadian Prus CJlc LONDON.

Snub To Negro Singer Riles Mrs. Believed To Have Quit D.A.R. Because Of Slight To Marian Anderson, Noted Artist By IRA WOLFERT. By LmhiI Win to Thd Tribune! EW YORK, March 3. Although ' nor rierrieri that F.liinnr Rnnaevelt. wife of the Dresident. hss resigned her membership - from the volution because of the inability of the Negro singer, Marian Anderson, to get permission to rent that society's Constitutional Hall In Washington, the issue still remains technically . a little less than crystal clear. Mrs. Roosevelt announced In her column, "My Day," her re signation from "an organization" which had taken an action wnicn has been widely talked of in the press. To remain as a member implies approval of that action, and, therefore, I am resigning." Wouldn't Amplify At the time, the news that Marian Anderson had been compelled to Cancel her scheduled aDDearanre at Constitution Hal) because of the attitude of the D.A.R. was stirring heated comment, almost, entirely denuncistory In charseter. But Mrs. Roosevelt refused to amplify her statement or identify specifically the organi zation from whlrh ahe - was resigning. She declared - It' was up to the organization itself to make the announcement. On Thursday, Mrs. Frank L. Nason, of Scituale, Mass., national registrar of the D.A.R., denied hav ing received the resignation, but suggested it might have been delayed in the Washington office. Mrs. Henry M. Robert, of Phoenix, Ariz., president - general, said: "Any comment on the resignation of any of our members would be contrary to policy." Two subsequent developments shed further illumination on a sub - ject whlrh, while not quite clear, More Cash For Increases in vocational education grants for Manitoba are now likely because of the school curriculum revision now proceeding in the province, and the announcement from Ottawa that the Dominion government is extending ita Technical Education Act of 1919 for another five years. The revised curriculum for secondary schools is likely to place greater stress on vocational training. Manitoba is still entitled to get $288,037 unexpended residue from the share allocated to it by the Dominion legislation, subject to the condition that the province spends dollar for dollar with what, ever it gets from the Dominion. The Technical Education Act of 1919 made available to the provinces $10,000,000 . for vocational training purpates, provided the Lions Denied Special Grant Another crista has arrived In the lives of Nero and Kitty, the Aealni - boine Park Lions. After consulting the city solicitor the city has de cided it cannot make a special grant of $8,500, or any other sum, toward the cost or. zoo improvements, including a lion house. The matter came up Friday at the meeting of the civic finance committee. The city solicitor pointed out that all normal expenditures of the parks board must be includ ed in the board's estimates, limited by the Parks act to one mill on the assessment. Some weeks ago Aid. Bilecki moved, seconded by Aid. Gray, that the city put $8,500 In the 1939 esti - mates for zoo Improvements. The motion carried by nine to eight. Now the city solicitor has turned thumbs down on the resolution. Nevertheless, the lions have nine lives and some of these are still left In the parks board itself a change of heart has been detected and the chances of the lions being rubbed out, if unsold, sre not as good as they were.' 1 : ' NAZIS STOCK FRUIT. CAPETOWN Germany will double, her purchases of South African fruit this yenr, spending ffiO.fXK) ($282,000) for apples, pears and grapes. Roosevelt It is generally understood here, and Daughters of the American Re was never exactly muddy. Mrs. Elsie Reed, honorary life member of the D.A.R., 67 - year - old surgeon, author and world traveler, now resident in Berkeley, Calif., an nounced her resignation, saying: "I do not care to belong to any organization that violates any of the principles I cherish, chief among them being no race pre judice.' She concluded by com mending Mrs. Roosevelt for "taking the same action." Writes Negro Singer At the same time H was disclosed that Mrs. Roosevelt had written a gracious letter to Maxine Sullivan, Negro jazz singer, who has acored a success by "swinging" popular classics, particularly Loch Lomond. The question whether Washington will be permitted to hear Marian Andersons internationally - acclaimed voice on April 9 a voice which has been described by critics sll over the world as the kind that appears on earth once every 100 years remains unsettled. The D.A.R. insists its suddenly discovered prior commitment for Constitution Hall on that date remains binding. Despite a growing avalanche of protests from Congressmen, American Legion officials and prominent musicians, Washington's school board Insists it cannot, under the law, open an auditorium to a commercial venture. Youth Training provincial governments put up an equal amount Each province was given $10, - 000 and the balance was appor tioned to them on the basis of school population. Manitoba's total share was about $750,000. Tha original act of 1919 stipul ated that the money was to be spent within a 10 - year period. Bv 1929 several provinces had not used their full allotment and the act waa renewed for five years. It wa extended another five yeara In 19.14, and is now being extended again for a 5 - year period. This will leave it in operation until 1944. Since 1919 Manitoba has spent about $925,000 on vocational education, half of it provided by the Dominion under Its 1919 legisla tion. In recent yers budgetary needs have kept the provincial' grants to relatively small sums. Last sea sion the legislature was asked to approve expenditures of $33,175 of which $13,600 was supplied by the Dominion.
