Carl Sandburg says:


ARL CHRISTIAN JENSEN'S book "Ar American Saga" is a book of our time. Compare it with another life's story by another Dane, Jacob Riis, of twenty-five years ago Jensen is restless, dissatisfied, a traveler on twisted pathways ever meeting fresh surprises Life for him has many and mystic keys, and he is a seeker, while for Riis the stuff and structure of life was not so puzzling, and to tell right from wrong was easy. For Riis, the factors of life always divided themselves into the right and the wrong ones. Jensen is different. They are two men in two epochs not at all alike, and each a child of his epoch.

One of our favorite paragraphs in Jensen's book is where he is contemplating his finger nails. My finger nail alone was a living library. The stuff of which the nail was made always was, and would forever be. Some fifty inches I had trimmed throughout my life; the trimmings were somewhere still always would be. Weeks and months and years ago my nail was in the food I ate; ages back, it the horse's hoof, the eagle's beak, the fish's scales, or in a thousand other things perhaps My finger nail was tougher than my reason and feelings. It would be the last of me to die; it would even grow in the grave -- unless I be cremated.

HIS DANISH BOY fought for a sheepskin as an American boy fights only for a pigskin. He got it and it has given him a career as teacher, psychologist and writer.

AN AMERICAN SAGA proves that our system of higher education works if the students will. Carl Jensen came to the University of Minnesota hungering and thirsting after knowledge and got everything he hoped for and more. If the English faculty at Minnesota taught Jensen to write English as he does, it should be the mecca of students from all parts of the country. But we suspect him of being a born writer.

This story will shake the most complacent Menckenite out of his serene confidence that all's wrong with America. K. P. in THE CHICAGO DAILY NEWS.
