A Boy’s Eye View of a New Book
The Werewolf of Paris by Guy Endore
Reviewed by Newby Crowell.
One of the most powerful stories of weird and horrible fiction ever written. It makes one’s hair stand on end, cold shivers play up and down one’s spine. It makes one glad that no such creatures exist or we hope they don’t. The author makes his plot so plausible and well drawn that we find ourselves believing that such things could happen. The story is based upon the theory that people can change into wolves at times. It was supposed to be a disease and couldn’t be cured, but the victim lived to make his and other people’s lives unhappy. He goes out at night, springs upon unwary travelers kills them and drinks their blood. He is a sort of vampire except that he can be killed by ordinary means. Every page is filled with action, mystery and horror. What a thriller this would be for a talkie.
A College Boy’s Theme-Psalm
The grade of 70 is my salvation; I shall not flunk.
It maketh me to write home in joyous passages;
It leadeth me to the talking pictures;
It restoreth my goal.
It guideth me in the path of extra curricular activities for my grades sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of failure;
I fear no writ; for thou art with me.
The letters from home they comfort me.
Thou preparest an exam before me in the midst of my confusion;
Thou anointest my head withal, my head runneth over.
Surely themes, theories, and examinations shall follow me the rest of the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the institution for the insane forever.
Q: What color do you suggest June brides?
A: It’s all a matter of taste. Personally I’d prefer a white one.
