Jerome Weidman. (Simon & Schuster $9.95) Irving Wallace pays a tribute to veteran fellow novelist Weidman on the dust cover of his new book and this is fitting. Like Wallace, Weidman knows how to entice readers in Chapter I and with crisp dialogue and fast action, hold them until the last page. He's been a professional story-teller with high earning power since I Can Get It For You Wholesale. This new novel gives us World War II veteran and millionaire philanthropist Dave Dehn, a man obsessed with an ideal — to build a synagogue 'in the heart of anti-Semitic Waspland' in Westchester County. He has seen Buchenwald and knows of Masada; his dream is to create a community where Jews can live unafraid and proud and bring their children up to fight back rather than be martyred. There are women in Dehn's life but none so loyal as Fanny Mintz, his ancient hump-backed secretary. There are enemies, too; Colin Babington, an anti-Semitic goy lawyer who enters the action in 1946, is most clearly characterized. The pervasive mystery for over 400 pages is where did Dehn, born in poverty, get the seed money to begin his career? The only trouble with this novel is that in 1976 one thinks that anti-Semitism is more subtle than overt. The Temple is quick and easy reading but, on reflection, far-fetched. — Mary Ann Riley.

The exercises had been a living '.'will" to him by the 93-year-old Grand Master of Wa'an, he says. Johnson has people of all ages in his classes, which he has conducted over the United States in private homes and in class groups of 25. As they twist, turn. bend, stretch, push and tuneup using a wand in the ancient way, it is "instant limber." On the 17thexercise, the last, they may be fit enough to battle a shark, as Johnson was able to do in Florida when a child was attacked in the water. "These exercises are simple but they build inner strength and the wand is used as a guide.' 1 he says, demonstrating. "You grasp it at each end, hold it straight out and then raise it gradually to begin the exercises." He uses a 50-inch length of bamboo, but any rod or dowel, 48 to 50 inches, may be used. The wand is raised straight out in line with the chin, lowered slightly, then raised to about nose level, lowered, then raised to forehead level, lowered and raised above the head. One breathes through the mouth raising the wand and exhales when lowering it. Rhythmic breathing and muscles working together help build strength and endurance and "perhaps slow the aging process." Still holding the ends of the wand, put it over the head and balance on the back of the neck: the back is arched, you lean forward "as if greeting a friend." Even if the elderly do not progress farther than' that simple beginning that involves raising the arms, they will have accomplished something that will help their, blood circulation and give them vigor, he says. The exercises progress into some that manipulate the wand behind the back and over the head as one bends, right and left, and even at the ankles. ''The back can be strengthed if these are done regularly, and they are particularly good for the elderly who shouldn't do jumping-jack exercises. But they should proceed gently." he advises. Johnson claims to have gotten the exercises in Shanghai in 1945 from "the Grand Master of Wa'an." a tall handsome elegant nonogenarian, who looked about 40. "I was led to him by a rickshaw driver. With three Navy buddies, members of our wrestling team. I was being pulled by a little old man up and down hills. I weighed 230 pounds; the load must have been a least a thousand, so we marveled at his strength." Soon Johnson was plying the old man with goodies from the ship — meat, powdered eggs, milk and the like, trying to learn the secret of his strength. Eventually he was taken to the grand master. Dr. Ch'eng. '' It was a fabulous experience, observing the strength of Dr. Ch'eng. He invited me to come at him full force and three times I hit the ground even though he didn't seem to move. He apparently spun to deflate my attacks." After learning the art from WAT£R WEIGHT PROBLEM?
