HARDLY A DAY PASSES that
we arc not confronted with some
quotation and we begin to search
frantically to learn the author. Il
really is surprising how many
times an apt quotation v.iil ex
plain n situation so perfectly that'
further wonlat,.; is entirely super
fluous. And how seldom . . . dis
IressinRly seldom . . . we can Hive
the authority for said quotation.
Hut that embarrassing faux pas
can be spared our readers for there
has come to our 'h"les the solu
tion of this perplexing problem, i
It is "n.KTI.KTT'S KAMI LI A It
QUOTATION'S ' and is edited by
that well-known authority. Chris-1
topher Morley. assisted by Louella
U. Everett. This is the latest re- I
vised edition. I
several times and f have had
to recourse to hurried SOS calls
to our distributor, and we are
fortunate now to have a couple
of opies. Hut that status will
he of short standing if the future
lives on to the past.
Although the course of the
narrative is marked by breath
less action, this is essentially a
love story, and one of great
warmth and tenderness. This
book has not been serialized and
so one gets it in its entitrety,
ami from the first page to the
last they also get a story so
engrossing, so beautiful, so vivid
and so completely alive that it
Mill remain in their memory for
a long, long time.
WHEN ANYTHING IS VERY
GOOD, repetition does not de
tract from its quality. So that
will explain why we come back
again and again to write up the
values and virtues of "THE
BLACK ROSE" by Thomas B.
Costaln. National Hook Week
has found Mr. ('ostain"g exciting
historical novel occupying the
center of the stage and coming
back for encore after encore.

your affections'.' It's not a slushy
book, be sure of that, but it is so
beautifully written and set before
the reader that one is impressed by
its solcmily. That it was written by
MacKinlay Kanlor bespeaks a wel

is opened for he has many books,
novels, to his credit. Perhaps the

WE GIVE THEE THANKS
In the name of the living, and of the dead,
And of those unborn Lord, bless the bread
Of brotherhood that now we break
In gratitude for Thy sweet sake.
In the name of the living we thank Thee, Lord,
For deliverance from flame and sword ;
For loved ones spared ; for the task well done ;
For the battle fought and the victory won.
In the name of the dead locked deep in sleep
Under alien earth give us strength to keep
Untarnished their dear-bought legacy,
The brave, bright armor of liberty.
And for those unborn Lord, we lift a prayer
For a wiser world where we all may share
A lasting amity with men.
.We thank Thee, Lord, for peace.
