Book Reve
Diminishing JRefurn, a nor el by
Xenard Kaufman. Doubleday, N.
Y 1951, 285 pp. $3.00.
Lenard Kaufman, author of
"Tender Mercy" and "Jubel's
Children", has his third book on
the market since 1948. Mr. Kauf
man's reviews have been indica
tions of doubt in the critic's
minds and, though he is a neo
phjrte to the writing profession
and exploded into popularity
with sale of his previous novels
to motion picture rights, he still
remains a dubious creature. "Di
minishing Return" is the product
of the country's hesitancy to ae
cept the young author.
Mr. Kaufman breathes his New !
York breath aU over the pages of
his novel and it pulsates with the
tension of the big city. He is an
author who wants desperately, as
do all authors, not to write for
himself, but to be read by every
one. This conflict prevails
throughout the story.
"Diminishing Heturn" appears
to be another step for Mr. Kauf
man but not a very large one.
The author who is striving to be
accepted is the sensitive tough
man who meets a crisis at every
comer. "Dmimishing Iteturn". is
likewise sensitive and after a se
ries of disappointments and dis
illusionments the author, after
deciding to give up his art to de
vote more time to his family and
making a living, finally returns
to his first love with the familiar
tapping of his typewriter sound
ing its conquest. We shall, no
doubt, hear more from Mr. Kauf
man. Joe Raff

The Press announced today the
biggest Spring list of new books
it has published in several sea
sons. History, politics, psychology,
biography, and business are
among the many subjects covered
by 14 new books. '
"No single title may be said to
lead the list this season," the
Press reports, "for we have
several titles which we are sure
will be very popular nationally,
and we -feel that this season par
ticularly each of our books is
important in its special field."
First to be released will be "A
Two-Party South?" by Alexander
of the political science
faculty. Scheduled for April 5
publication, this popularly written
discussion of the possibilities and
potentialities for a real two-party
system inthe South will prove
particularly controversial in this
election year.
Hooseveli -Daniels Letters
Another book in the field of
politics will be "Roosevelt and
Daniels: A Friendship in Politics,"
edited with an introduction by
Carroll KHpatrick, well known
"Washington newspaperman. The
correspondence-which passed be
tween these two great figures
during 30 years of warm friend
ship and political association will
be published verbatim in Kilpat
rick's book, which is scheduled
for June release. As; the publisher
of Josephus Daniels' now famous
autobiography in four volumes,
it is especially fitting that the
Press should publish this foot
note to Daniels and United States
political history.
from 27,948 to 23,559.
Dr. Hillman cited two major
reasons for the change in sex
ratios: ' (1) boys who normally
would enter college are being
called into military service; and
(2) a greater number of girls
finish high school each year.
This year's enrollment by races:
white, 32,152; Negro 8,464; and
Indian 123. Senior colleges had a
total enrollment of 36,510; junior
colleges, 4,198; and off-campus
centers, 31.

the finest social and civic circles
of Cincinnati, where he made his
home. Another biography on the
Spring list will be the June pub

Politics of the American Revolu
tion," by Kenneth R. Rossman of
Doane College, Nebraska. Mifflin,

tal Army, was a man of contradic
tions. He is often accused of
taking an instrumental part in the
Conway Cabal to oust George
"Washington from command of the
Army. Mr. Rossman's is the first
biography of this controversial
patriot and firmly ' restores him
to a deserved place among the
stalwarts of the Revolution.

ture of the country today and a
searching analysis of the oppor
tunities that Liberia offers for
enlightened collaboration by
American business and govern
ment. One Spring title already has

of Reasoning Tests, by Dorothy
C. Adkins and Samuel R. Lyerly.
