New York: Scribner. It is a solid novel. I do not compare Mrs. Something is amiss with the times and for some years now I have been trying to discover why.
It is true that the arts seldom flourish in times of economic depression or in times of turmoil and distraction. Today we are prosperous enough, but we are certainly distracted by a million things—by politics, by wars, by taxes, by personal anxieties, by movies and radio and television and airplanes and automobiles. For the novelist, it seems to me the times are out of joint. It is true, of course, that many of those now under thirty-five have forgotten how to read any sustained piece of writing or never knew how to read. Rawlings has told in good, sober prose what is virtually a Biblical story of a really good man and his tribulations.
The time and the place are both blurred, deliberately so; but it gives a remoteness to the characters. It is the story of two brothers, one born in joy and the other in bitterness by a mother who eventually went mad. Rawlings has followed in great detail the life of the plodder. The attractive wastrel leaves the pages of the book almost at once and, until the end, one hears of him only by rumor.
From time to time one hungers for news of him. The author describes the wastrel admirably and then abandons him until we come upon him dying at the end of what appears to be a wasted life. I think that at times, because of this lack of contrast, the good brother, Asahel, seems duller than he really was. Do not let me mislead you. Rawlings is a skilled and able writer, and she has a good story to tell.
It is a solid book.

APH A vocational pamphlet prepared by the government and available from the U. By Eleanor Ruggles. New York: W. Of all the arts, theirs is the most evanescent. Theatrical relics are, for the most part, depressing, as anyone knows who has leaved through faded photographs and albums of press cuttings.
Burbage, Betterton, Garrick, Kean—how little of their essence has been left to us! We know something of Richard Burbage the man. We know almost nothing of him as an actor. More often than not, our conceptions are not derived from biographical sources at all. Miss Ruggles has largely succeeded. Clearly the author relishes her subject. Illegitimate son of a brilliant, half-mad actor, he was born on the night of November 13, Nature provided him with a caul and set the scene with a shower of meteorites.
As she considers Booth in his later years, her task becomes increasingly complex. Though her portrait of Booth in these later years is perhaps as complete a one as we can hope for, yet certain features of her subject remain in the shadows. Was it an instinctive self-patterning after his father? We shall probably never know the answers to these questions and Miss Ruggles, if she has not suggested their solution, has at least not overlooked them.
In wisely deciding to keep her subject in the foreground, Miss Ruggles is often forced to minimize others. Her pages are studded with the names of the theatrical great whose careers impinged on that of Booth. On the whole, however. Miss Ruggles has boldly and vividly drawn the portrait of Edwin Booth against the panorama of the nineteenth-century theatre. When she has failed it is because her scope is too broad, even for a book of nearly four hundred pages.
Hers is a book that is too short, rather than too long, and hers a subject of lasting interest. Edwin Booth epitomized the popular conception of an actor, both on and off stage. Then there are no more actors! My alleged education, which was brief and intermittent, was received partly in Boston, partly in Geneva, and partly in Berlin, not to mention a long period in the country with a German governess.

He next went to Chicago where he spent eight years in radio and stock. Then, following a hitch in the Navy, he came to New York. Right now he is understudying Led Erickson m the current play Tea and Sympathy.
He has also had a large number of television parts, notably on the Ford and Studio One programs. He has an easy, natural reading style, and, needless to say, a ne voice. Weber lives with his family in Woodcliff, New Jersey, where, between radio, tele- 1 vision and Talking Book jobs, he spends most of his time working on his house and grounds. By Robert Alan Aurthur. Like Babbitt, he had lost the power to snap the silken chains of habit, but he was troubled by the vague feeling of having missed the boat, of being bored by his marriage, separated from his children, and unfulfilled by his work.
Toolum might have continued on this treadmill until doomsday, but he was touched by an ultramodern finger of fate— a bubblegum company selected him as Mr. His height, coloring, weight, age, taste in breakfast food all checked. He was Mr. Yankee Doodle, and his troubles had just begun.
He had been avoiding a TV set. Then they put him on a television program, and he came across like an outstandingly stupid sweepstakes winner. In the end, A 1 Toolum was fired from the position of Yankee Doodle, but sticking a feather in his cap had changed his life and brought him into closer harmony with his wife, his kids, and more importantly, with himself.. Peepers," and this makes it odd that his fun-poking at the new industry should be the least effective portion of the book. The madness of Madison Avenue has been done many times before, and many times more effectively. When Aurthur writes about A 1 Toolum and family his touch is surer.
