July “Personalist” Strikes Individualistic Atmosphere Article From Sweden Begins Characterization of Northern Philosopher of 18th Century> H. Wildon Carr Considers “Natural Reason” Dr. Olson, who received his A. M. and J. D. degrees at Southern California and a Master’s degree at Harvard prior to the Ph.D. wrhich was granted the 24th of last month, combined graduate and other courses in the Harv ard Law School writh related work in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Division of History, Government, and Economics..

Dr. Olson was admitted to the California bar in 1922. Realizing that the question of Colorado River development is of fundamental importance to the entire Southwest, Professor Olson made several trips to Washington during his stay at Cambridge in order to carry on his research. He was also in close contact with interstate agencies, such as the New York Port Authority, which are confronted with problems somewhat similar to those involved in harnessing the Colorado. MANY SIDES STUDIED Telling of the manner in which four years had been used for the intensive study of Colorado River development in order that an unbiased and scholarly piece of work might be produced. Dr. Olson declared that he first made a study of the administrative law features of the Colorado River Compact. This was followed by several term theses on some phase of the question. Among these was one on Arizona’s attitude toward Colorado River development. Still another thesis written on the subject was that presented to a seminar conducted jointly by Dean Roscoe Pound of the Harvard Law School and Professor W. E. Hoekine of the Philosophy Department.

Old acquaintances of this philosophical and literary quarterly, therefore, will not be surprised to learn that the July number is full of interest from the table of contents to the last of its book reviews. Dr. Mewelling, the editor, has the first -article, and strikes a reassuring note of individualism in his theme of Personality and Society. 1 hat the individual must realize himself socially and adapt himself to the world about him is asserted by the author, who then ♦swiftly passes to the idea that “ ihe greatest gift to society is the gift of great personality, for in realizing'himself the individual j brings the greatest progress to | the social order." Unselfish, or social, self-realiza-i tion combines an intense purposiveness and self-consciousness I with an equally intense desire to i serve,*says Dr. ^Flewelling, who sees social progress as coming “first of ali I through the impact of personality.” SWEDISH CONTRIBUTION The next article comes from Anders !

It is a characterization of i Thomas Thorild. the eighteenth cen I tury Swedish philosopher and poet, and although the author has a handi I cap of being obliged to interest us in the study of a little-known man, nevertheless he does interest us, and mightily. Thorild must have been a most unusual and refreshing personality. for the author tells us that on various occasions he “pleads for the (Continued on Page Four) EIGNL STUDIES WRITTEN BY T Setting forth American Ideals in a strictly modern and vital manner, Dr. James Alton James, Dean of the Graduate School at Northwestern University and yesterday’s assembly speaker, declared to the summer session student body yesterday that the League of Nations and the World Court are emphatically American ideals, very far from being dead issues and closely tied up with our national record of goodwill and helpfulness toward all the smaller nations. “I fear that there are many who criticise the League of Nations Covenant who have never read it,” said Dr. James. “It is a doctrine that is very live; it is a document that is very live in Europe today; and I commend it to you for consideration on its mer-•i tt its. The gpeaker made it plain that he was discussing the league in connection with its place as an American ideal and not as a political declaration of faith. Dr. James stated that he voted the Republican ticket in 192p. PRAISES PAGEANT Dr. James began with high praise of the "very dignified and representative” pageant held Monday in the Los Angeles Coliseum, saying that he had never seen its equal for an imrpes-sive and true representation of certain phases of American history.

Austin, professor of Italian, has just had the eighth of his series of Dante discussions published in the June issue of Modern Language Notes. His subject Is Three Guidos. Another work now completed by Professor Austin, and which is to be sent to the Macmillan Company in September, is his French Grammar. In this book the author has made a special point of developing a clear method for the understanding of the facts of grammar in the expectation that both teachers and students will find it helpful in making their g-asp of the language more sure and funda-1 signing, and housewives, mental. -:- A point of the methodology is that each rule or small group of rules is followed immediately by drill, both to fix the point in the student’s mind and to give the teacher wider choice in making assignments. The drils are consecutive and tne author has made liberal use of tables in presenting many grammar facts. Another composition of Professor Austin’s is an article, practically completed for some, on The Bearing of Multiple Meanings in th° Divine Com edy on the Understanding of Metaphors.
