STRANGE TEXTS BUT GRAND TRUTHS.
By Clarence E. Macartney. Abingdon-
Cokesbury Press, Nashville. (Price:
$2.50.)
  Dr. Macartney, '01 is pastor of
the First Presbyterian Church of
Pittsburgh, and this book ot ser-
mon-messages based on strange and
obscure phrases from the Bible in-
dicates his strong devotion to the
fundamental tenets of Christianity.
Seventeen  messages are  included;
after stating the texts, Dr. Macartney
tells the story behind them in realis-
tic and readable fashion. The book is
the more interesting since it contains
many incidents from history and
from his own life, travel, and read-
ing.
   THE PHILOSOPHY OF MAHATMA
   GANDHI. By Dhirendra Mohan Datta.
   The University of Wisconsin Press,
   Madison. (Price: $2.50.)
   Dr. Datta is professor of philos-
 ophy at Patna University and is a
 former associate of Gandhi. In this
 work on Gandhi, he has, in a brief,
 yet systematic way, constructed a
 system of Gandhian thought. This
 he has accomplished by a logical
 synthesis of the ideas found in
 -books, articles, lectures,Jetters,-ancL
 diaries of Gandhi himself. Dr. Datta
 says he is trying to "present in Eng-
 lish to the Western world the life
 and the philosophy of Gandhi and
 to show the importance of his ideals
 of truth, love, and nonviolence for
 the solution of the social and poli-
 tical problems of the present age."
   MAHATMA GANDHI: PEACEFUL REVO-
   LUTIONARY. By Haridas T. Muzumdar.
   Charles Scribner's Sons, N. Y. (Price:
   $2.00.)
   The U. S. State Department is
 impressed enough by this book to
 be distributing 4,000 copies through-
 out the Orient. This account of
 Gandhi by Dr. Muzumdar, '29, is
 notable for its clear exposition of
 the great Indian leader's ideas and
 the influence they have had on all the
 Hindese  peoples. Dr. Muzumdar,
 now a professor of sociology at Cor-
 nell college, Mount Vernon, Iowa,
 was himslf intimately associated with
 India's fight for freedom and has
 published a number of works on this
 subject. He once taught at the Uni-
 versity of  Wisconsin, where   he
 received his Ph.D. degree.
