"Saratoga Trunk" Is Charming Work of Edna FeHjcr at Library Edna Fcrber's distinguished novels of the American scene, Cimarron, Show Boat, So Big and many others, share one special quality among them: they display at once the glamor and the strength of this country, and of the people who built it. "Saratoga Trunk" is no exception. Its background, New Orleans and Saratoga in the 'eighties, is one of the most picturesque America has produced, but the theme, behind the romance between Clint Maroon and Clio Dulano, is that of the railroad builders, the men who flung across the land the roads of steel which united it, and toward that end were careless of the means they used. Clint Maroon was n magnificent Texan whose father had been ruined by railroads. Ho knew their ruth- Icssncss; ho had enough imagination to senco their future. He was to become rich, fabulous, the greatest railroader America had ever known. Clio Dulaino was the daughter of a New Orleans aristrocrat and his French mistress. She grew up in Paris, brooding over the wrongs done her mother, and returned to New Orleans to avenge them. There with her two servants, Kaka. the tall and stately ncgress, and the little dwarf, Cupido, she reopened the little house in Rampart Street and set about coping the enmity of her father's clan. There she might have remained, becoming herself a legend, had not her ways in a moment of inexplicable chance crossed those of Clint Maroon. She, with cold clear-sightedness, wanted to achieve not only her revenge, but wealth also. Clint, too, luid*'his revenge to find. So begins the story of Saratoga Trunk. It is the story of a way of life and of a breed of men who held a helpless continent in thrall, and who only today arc beginning to return their spoils to the people. Alaskans Fortified With Food Supplies ANCHORAGE, Alaska-(>P)-Alaska expects to have plenty to eat this winter. Although dependent on waterborne commerce from the United States, farsighted merchants laid in large quantities of essential civilian supplies last summer. George Sundborg, a government investigator, commented here: "In my opinion, there is no possibility of a food shortage. I believe that today there is more food in the territory than there has been at any other one time." Sundborg, senior planning technician of the National Resources Planning Board, made the survey after Gov. Ernest H, GrUenihg asked it on the outbreak of war.
