Books: Mention- Aug. 12, 1929

INFIDELS AND HERETICS, An Agnostic's Anthology—Clarence Darrow & Wallace Rice—Stratford ($3). "Agnostic" in the title is used broadly enough so that all tones from the lightest treble of skepticism to the deepest bass of atheism are to be found in this collection of short thoughts. Some of the contributors, willing or unwilling, are Poets Whitman, Byron, Job, Swinburne, Prosaists Santayana, Nietzsche, Plato, the Huxleys, Clarence S. Darrow. The collection cannot be called exhaustive since so many other "anti-religionaries" are absent—notably Voltaire.
