Reading From Left To Right
FRANCES GILBERT FRAZIEK
Back From Pacific
With the melodic jingle of
Christmas bolls almost ringing in
our ears, it behooves most of us
to get our books lined u and in
the order of their giving. Nothing
could be more appropriate lor a
lasting gift than a good book. It
will be a present not only lor the
holiday season, but for all the sea
sons of the year. It is something
that can be shared by the entire
family and so is a sort of co-operative
And with this idea in mind, the
first book on our shelf today is
one that is so fresh from the wrap
pings that it really hasn't had time
to catch its breath since it came to
our desk. Hut. oh so appropriate.
It is called "THE KIRKSIDK HOOK
OF CHRISTMAS STORIES" and is
edited by Edward VVagenknecht
and illustrated by Wallace Morgan
All the stories pertaining to Christ
mas that have been instilled into
our minds since childhood are to
be found on the pages of this en
When Marjoiie Coryn wrote
"GOOD-BYE. MY SON" the read
ing world was entranced by this
story of Napoleon from the point
of view of his mother. It was
superb. But Miss Coryn has sur
passed herself in this, her newest
work. "THE MARRIAGE OF JOSE
PHINE." All of the grandeur of
Napoleon's reign and his life with
his adored and scornful Empress.
Rising even above the supremacy
of Napoleon is .Josephine, a woman

ly untroubled by scruples yet
through it all a woman understaad
ingly human and utterly bewitch
ing. Then comes another book that
will (ill the heart of any recipient
with unalloyed joy for it covers all
lines of entertaining literature. It
is "THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT
STORIES OF 194.r" as edited by
.Martha Foley. You can pick it up
at any odd moment, read one. two
or even tRree of its selections, then
lay it aside uf you can) to resume
the fascinations of its pages at a
later time. Every author repre
sented in this book has 100 per
cent rating in the literary field. In
this way. the reader has access to
those stories that have been ad
judged the best during the year.
Sometimes the title of the book
will be so alluring that the reader
is fascinated into opening up the
pages to see what the story could
be about. And usually they are
not disappointed at what they find
upon investigating, and get so
deeply engrossed in the tale that
they want every one else to enjoy
it too. ThLs might well be said of
"ROOSTERS CROW IN TOWN,"
written by Henry Deetle Hough.
These roosters woke up the little
town somewhere in New England;
a little town tucked away, quietly
living its homespun theories un
til .. . it awoke when the roosters
crowed. Chris Shearard lives on a
farm on the edge of town, and
works for the little town paper,
the Herald. Here he meets all
sorts of people, interesting and
otherwise, but they do not entirely
take his mind off the pathetic quest
for a reason that would cause his
father's suicide. He finally emerges
from this tragic cloud after a great
crisis has come into his own life.
Interesting nil the way through, is
ROOSTERS CROW IN TOWN."
One of the most beautifully writ
ten books that has come within
our range of vision is "THE LIT
TLE LOCKSMITH" by Katharine
Butler Hathaway. We walk the lit
tle path with a child struggling
along in a loneliness that compels
her to build her own imaginative
world which she peoples with

a book that cannot be clearly clas

Sgt. Joseph Tate, AAF
Serv ice This Month
"The most dangerous and nerve
racking experience during my eight
months du'y with the AAF in the
European theater was the mission
of Mursverg. a suburb of I.isipz.

their biggest synthetic oil plants."
said Sgt. Joe Tate, who completed
31 missions over enemy territory.
"The Germans usually had the
protection of around 500 guns over
the spot, but on that particular day
they must have had the protection
of 1,500. In our own ship we had
at least 100 flak holes when we re
turned to our base in Kngland.
The mission lasted nine hours and
we lost two of our ships. As far as
we know all the crews were killed
or taken prisoner.'' he continued.
