The most interesting article in the current number of the Advocate is a story by Frazier Curtis '98 entitled "A Story of Soldiers Field." It is a strong, vivid tale of a Freshman athlete disappointed in his great desire to play on his winning football team against Yale by his own foolishness. This for once is a college story, which is real and natural to a college man.
A poem, "Wanderlust," signed F. M. is imaginative and euphonious, rather like Kipling in its rythm but without Kipling's boldness of metaphor and roughness of style.
A short sketch of "Friar Tuck" a run-away horse, by L. F. Nicoll 1901 is original, but rather abrupt and disjointed.
H. P. Huntress '99 has written a criticism of seven books on Harvard life. The author makes the mistake of dwelling at length on "Harvard Stories" and " Harvard Episodes," with which all are so familiar, and devoting but short, impersonal criticisms to the earlier books which but few know about.
The other contributions are: a "Sailor's Requiem," by P. A. Hutchinson '99, and "Triolet," by F. W. C. Hersey 1900, poems.
