“Crass" Mr, Macy calls a word
'wedded to stupidity." Despite Mr.
Rlaev's dislike .of crass, one imag

no other word will take its place.
Webster quotes that powerful phrase

“Intrigue” Without Authority.
For "intrigue " used as a verb in
the French sense, donner a penser
i for example. “The plot intrigued
us greatly"', Mr. Macy finds no au
thority in the dictionaries. "In a
recent supplement of New Words,
Webster defines it thus: "to arouse
the interest, desire, or curiosity of,
as by an engaging, beguiling, or
bafling quality; beguile."
Mr. Macy would use "meticulous"
only in the sense of "timid” not of
"exquisite, delicate, careful." He ad
mits that there is authority for the j
secondary meaning, "but our young- j
rr writers," he insists, ' are work
ing it to dentil. As a publishers ‘
reader, I hereby promise to reject
any novel in which it appears more '
than once. Webster’s New Interna- i
tional Dictionary is. nevertheless,
authority for this secondary use. It!
vays of the use “timid, fearful, that
it is obsolete, and gives as the com

‘lund Ready For Morgue.
"Lurid " Mr. Macy regards as “a
oixid word to put in the morgue."
His objection here is that the word
"really means pale yellow. wan,
gray, quite the opposite of highly
colored.'' whereas many use of it as

One would judge from what he says
here that a word may not legiti

course of time.
In actual fact, many words have
turned complete somersaults in the
progress of the years—knights, for
example, knave, sensual, villain,
caitiff, and others. According to
Webster lurid, in addition to the |
meaning allowed it by Mr. Maey, j
also signifies "appearing like glow- i
