A scarce copy of Tide, the literary journal of the Writers' Club of the College of Puget Sound. This issue features a piece by Herbert Arntson (1911-1982), who went on to become an award-winning author of juvenile historical novels set in the pioneer milieu of Oregon and Washington. He served on the faculty of Washington State University, 1946-1974, where he was head of the creative writing program. (His papers are collected at the University of Oregon Libraries Special Collections).

One of the longer prose pieces is a story titled, ''The Class Struggle in Yelm, Washington,'' by James Docherty. It's a quirky tale that centers on a sketchy communist barber and a pro-fascist editor of a local newspaper.

This issue also includes a book review by Francis Galbraith, who became the U.S. Ambassador to Singapore, 1966-1969, and Indonesia, 1969-1974. (The other brief book reviews cover Aldous Huxley and Charles Erskine Scott Wood).

Dorothy Belle Harriss (m. Cairnes) contributes a poem. In January 1937, she became the first woman to serve as President of the University of Puget Sound Student Body.

The cover was done by Maurita Shank (m. Runions), president of the C.P.S. Art Club.
