(Nov. 1916–Oct. 1917),
monthly little magazine intended to foster native talents and points of view and encourage freer expression than could be countenanced in the more conservative quality magazines. Its editors included James Oppenheim, Waldo Frank, and Van Wyck Brooks, and among its contributors were Anderson, Amy Lowell, Frost, John Reed, Dos Passos, R. S. Bourne, Vachel Lindsay, Dreiser, Spingarn, W. H. Wright, and Mencken. The magazine's pacifism caused its subsidy to be withdrawn, and its financial failure.
