HE BOOK SURVEY his services were He preserved the 1JY EIUJCK CATION NKA Service Writer Paul Von Hin&nbtirg was in his sixties, a retired general of infantry, when the World War hroke out. He had already, so to sprnk, lived one life— a lone, active and useful nos. Having finished it, he was waiting placidly for death. With the war he began a second life—as legendary hero of Gcr many'S^armtcs, a returned Bar- baros5a, an incarnate Wotfin smiling the fatherland's enemies. For four years this second life continued .ending only with the armistice. Then, years later, began his third life, when he was made president of the German republic. And I'ttre. .perhaps, greatest cf all. republic, checkmated the monarchists, gave such statesmen as Str^semann and Bruening the sup^ port without which they could not ~ have ; cfernet1 out their policies. That, briefly, is the way T. R. Ybarra sums the man np in "Hin- donburg—the Man With Three Lives." published this month by nuffi.;l[i and Green at $3. It makes an engrossing book and provides a clear and, I think, very sane picture of tlie famous old warrior- ctalcsman. In his discussicn of the war days Mr. Ybarra is less fortunate than he might be, and he shows ft len- flency here and there to do Von Hindenburg's private soliloquizing for him. Hut in the main his book Is soVjer and well-grounded, an dit makes exceedingly timely and interesting reading. An Escaped Convict, and IVIial He Escaped From "I am a Fugitive Prom a Georgia Chain Gang." by Robert E. Bums, is not pleasant reading. Mr. Burns, who escaped from Georgia's medieval prison system several years ago. established himself as a magazine editor in Chicago, vas captures! and sent back lo prison and finally escaped again, tel'.s all nhout Ills cxpcmuccs and exposes Ihc chain gang system pretty clearly as n dismal relic of Carbarism. Yet it i chain 5:1113 life that makes one shudder; tt is his s'.ory of how Georgia's ruling officials, when he hail been captured, insisted on throwing despite Hie fact that he society. That is his real indict- not his description of is given a new timeliness by the recent archaeological liscoverics on Monte Alban in Mexico, is "colum- bus Came Late," by Gregory Ma- Eon. Here Is a very well-handled summary of tile known facts and principal theories about tlis ancient civilizations of the New World; and Mr. Mason is so enthusiastic about his subject, and writes with such an infectious swing, thnt his book ought lo arouse a 'new interest in American antiquities among people who have never bothered about such things, before. Occasionally his enthusiasm runs away wilh him a bit, to be sure; but for the most part he keeps his feet on the ground, and it is greatly to his credit that he has made 5Ufh a dusty-dry subject as archaeology become interesting, even exciting, for; the lay reader. "Columbus Came Late" is pjib- llshed by the Century Co. at S*. Driver Grove Freeman Huey received serious injuries on his right hand last week when he was struck by a piecs of iron wedge: Ted Brock was wedging a log and while lie was hammering the wedge the pisce flew ofl and struck Hucy on the hand, cutting tlie main Wood reins.
