Reading Lends Effect
Or Even Am usemen t
By JOEY CIIRYSTATiIj
Sometime's you may wish you were curled up with a good hook when
someone saw you, to produce an effect of some kind of intelligence, or
rinyway, an EFFECT. We have a list here of some books, some of
which we have read, more of which we have not which you might like
to use, while waiting for this effect to he produced.
If you've ever read any of H. S. C.’s poems on the front page of the
Journal, you might like to look ar
a collection of them, illustratedwith
drawings by the author, Harry
Rilleck Crannatt. The title of the
hook, also of the first poem in it,
is “The Pied Typer of Shrdln
Etaoin,” inspired the odd combin
ations of letters sometimes col
lected by the men who run the type
Thurher Draws, Too
Another volume illustrated with
drawings by the author is “The
Male Animal,” the play by James
Thurber and Elliott Nugent. An
interesting thing about these
drawings is that Thurber actually
used them to help direct the play.
The Chinese philosopher, Lin Yu
tang, has now written a novel
about his countrymen. “Moment in
Peking” deals with the conflict be
tween the older generation's ad
herence to the customs of their an
cestors and the young people’s
adoption of new standards and
ideals for living.
A good example of an Ameri
can career woman is Clare Boothe.
Interest in her has been especial
ly notable since the publication of
her account of “Europe in the
Spring.” We have read articles
about her lately which would like
to insinuate that perhaps she does
n't write her own stuff. It would
be interesting to read her plays:
“Margin for Error,” "The Women,”
and “Kiss the Boys Goodbye,”
muttering to yourself all the while
“But did Clare Boothe REALLY
Fashion Is Spinach
Another career woman in print is
Elizabeth Hawes. The head of a
large designing and dressmaking
establishment, Miss Hawes has put
many of her experiences in “Fash
ion Is Spinach.” This work has a
new slant on fashion in that it
dares to hint that perhaps fashion
does not have to be the power in
the retail market that it is.
And if you have to wait really
a long time for your audience to
appear, you might consider leafing
through “Gone With the Wind."
Tt seems to have kept some people
amused for some time. Of course,
your statement, “I have read ‘Gone
With etc.,” should not be expect
ed to produce the effect it would
have in a former time.

“Take the Typical Case of Tan

is the skin,” say the authors, “and,
of course, the silver paper; while
most beneficial of all is, perhaps,

thousands of people who quite cas

casing and throw it away!”
“Most people go through life

is disastrous: imperceptibly, igno
