Mencken Dies in His Sleep at 75

In Baltimore

Death Claims Noted Author as Plans Were Made For New Book (Pictures on Page 3.)

Henry Louis Mencken, au-; thor, editor and caustic critic; of two generations, died in} his sleep about 4 a. m. yes-; terday at the Baltimore home| he shared with his brother,’ August, an engineer. Mr.| Mencken had celebrated his| 75th birthday last Sept. 12.

The “Sage of Baltimore” had suffered an initial stroke in| 1948. It was followed by a se- vere heart attack two years| later which had seriously im-| paired his faculties.

The end came as newspapers across the country were report-| ing his intent to publish a new) beok called “Minority Report,” a collection of essays of vary- ing lengths.on a variety of sub-| jects. Its contents, he had told reporters, caused him to look forward with pleasure to “being | denounced again.”

Mr. Mencken, who probably will be best-remembered for his scholarly, oft-revised treatise. “The American Language,” had become a legend in his own life- time. By quirk of circumstance, or sly design, he forged of him- self a figure which became all things to all people, and re- mained so to the end.

Mr. Mencken was born in! Baltimore and always called it home |

Unlike many American lite- rary giants, he never left the city for any length of time ex- cept for trips

When as editor of the maga- zine Smart Set and later of the American Mercury his presence was required in New York, he commuted to Manhattan.

Worshiped by a generation of Baltimoreans, though inevi- tably pooh-poohed by a few, he was a prophet with honor in his own land, a dominant figure in the intellectual life of his city as well as the Nation. No one contested the title bestowed | on him: The Sage of Baltimore.

He was a son of Anna Abhau and August Mencken. The lat ter, who died when H. L. was, 19 years old, was a hard-headed prosperous cigar manufacturer who loved a practical joke and was a self-styled atheist. H. L. inherited both the love of jokes and the iconoclasm.

A spokesman Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden’s official party en route to the United States said “I as- sure you the British view com- pletely coincides. with Mr Eisenhower's on the _reasons for rejecting the Bulganin peace pact.” Eden will arrive at New York Monday aboard the liner Queen Elizabeth, and then go’to Washirgton for talks with the President.

A spokesman for the Italian Foreign Office summed up much of the Western feeling by saying that the reply “showed awareness of the cohesion among the Atlantic (pact) na- tions.”

The British Foreign Office had no official comment, but general British reaction is that a friendship pact would not solve the disputes outstanding between East and West.

A French government spokes-

The London Weekly Ob- server said President Eisenhow- er was “right to contrast Bul- ganin’s ‘friendly letter’ with recent unfriendly action of the Soviet government.”

Diplomatic observers report- ed from Moscow that Russia probably realized in advance President Eisenhower would reject Bulganin’s pro- posal. The Soviet press and radio carried the text-of Bul-| ganin’s letter to Mr. Eisenhow- er, but failed-to mention the President's rejection of the idea

Diplomats said the Bulganin proposal was a shrewd stroke designed to make friends for Russia at the expense of the United States. One Moscow source said Russia probably knew United States policy frowns on bilateral friendship agreements outside the frame- work of the United Nations Thus, he said, the rejection would make the United States appear to be turning down a
