Broun's liberal outlook pervades this collection of his column “pieces” [ It Seems To Me ], revealing the World-Telegram commentator preoccupied with social questions. He is quick to side with the under-dog when economic struggle breaks loose, as everybody knows. A long way has been traversed by the columnist since his virtuosity charmed the sports fans and there is an essential note of seriousness in his present-day work, but it has the defect of avoiding the hard and precise reasoning that might be expected of a theorist on social questions, or even of an observer of compelling events. Rarely is he guilty of clichés as a literary craftsman, but his economics is often bromidic. He levels his shafts at the heart, not the head.
