_FU1DAY, DECEMBER 12, 1930 BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THE BOOK SURVEY by 11RUCE CATTON NE\ Sen-ice Writer In "Moving Forward," Henry Ford casls an appraising eye at Uie new industrial civilization which he helped to create, and finds il very good. The current, fear of the mechanization of life is not even comprehensible to Mr. Ford. Those dreadful words, "technological unemploy- : nienl," give him no uneasiness at all. He is quite unable to see how any man can be afraid of mass production. As he sees it, we are just entering a new era, which will make for more human happiness and contentment than the world lias ever known. There are plenty of students of the times to disagree with him, and it must be admitted that when he embarks on sociology he occasionally flounders dreadfully; bu', his book Is amply worth study, tor all that, and I have a feeling that he comes quite as near the mark as ilo some of the more erudite critics ot our social order. In this book Mi-. Ford defends the new industrialism. He scoffs at. the theory that machines are eternally displacing workmen; in- stcnd, he says, they create new jobs in new fields. He sounds again his battle cry of high wages and low prices, declares that t'ne best wages of today will seem unbearably low a few decades hence, and iiredlcts that poverty will soon be only a horrible memory. The best chapters are tlios^ in which lie describes operations in his own factories. His account of the famous shift from Model T to Model A, his description of the scrapping of 199 Shipping Board steamers and his story of the migration from Highland Park to River Rouge are actually exciting. This book is written in collaboration with Samuel Crowther, and is published by Doubleday. Doran and Co. at $2.50. You will find a great deal in it to stimulate you and a great deal to encourage you —even if you also find plenty with which you must disagree. * » * 'THIMPPA' 1 SELLS WELL. AND IS EXCEEDINGLY GENTEEL The reading public, In Its Infinite wisdom, has made "Piiilippa," by Anne Douglas Sedgwick, a best seller. Why this should be I have no idea. The book sems to me to be utterly flat, stale and unprofitable. Perhaps this popularity is due to the air of exquisite, well-bred- British gentility that permeates the story. "Philippa" introduces you to the Very Best People. Piiilippa is the daughetr of a civil servant in London. The civil servant deserts his wife, get her to .divorce him and marries a charmer Aamed Cbsima.Brandon/Philip-, pa, who loves her father very dearly but who doesn't think tie ha' quite done the right thing b; mamma, trails along and finally succeeds In breaking up the romance Then she has a romance of hei own, father doesn't like it, and tin book ends. Philippa is quite the most unpleasant, not to say horrible, younc woman I have met in a long, lonr lime. Her father is as selfish am" pompous an ass as you will find ir contemporary fiction. Cosima Brandon is presented in such a way a; to make you wonder hour any mortal man could possibly leave ever the most imperfect wife on her account. The book has two points in its favor. It will \nppeal to all snobs and it will also appeal to thos," 'who ho!d the plonsant belief til?.! cue is quite justficd in runninc away from any kind of obligation or responsibility if only one Is—ah divine words—in love. So it is highly popular. The Houghlon, Minim Co. publishes it. It costs S2.5P. ENTERTAINING ACTION IN "The BLUE GOD JAZZ" "The Blue God Jazz" is the story tf Margaret. Liplon, a country girl v.-ho went to the big city, became a 'cellist, scored a success as a radio and jazz band player, fell violently in love with a conceited radio station announcer and finally, having Steele Society—Personal been bumped emotionally beyond endurance, struck out Into the concert He'd and revealed genuine genius—and, In the end, had her beloved announcer, considerably chastened and meeker, come back to her arms. Briefly outlined, it sounds like just another o[ those gin-glrls-and Jazz stories; but, Donald Snow, the author, has managed to dig under the surface of things a bit and his digging has got, the book out of the rut. His book Is not simply the story of the adventures ol Margaret Upton; It is a spirited and intelligent analysis of jazz—"the blue god jazz"—and it. Is worth reading. It Is published by Edward J. Clode, and retails at, $2. * » • A NAUGHTY DUCHESS, BUT A VERY ENERGETIC LADY Marie De Hohan, Duchess de Chevreuse, was lady-in-waillng to the Queen of France during the reign of Louis XIII. She was extremely beautiful, she had—in the ordinary sense of the word— practically no morals at all, and she was a born schemer; consequently she kept France in a turmoil for ; years, engineered several revolutionary plots, fought the great Cardinal Richelieu tor many years an:l leit her name in history as one of the most perversely fascinating of all high-born light ladies. A very readable biography of this somewhat scandalous female is issued tills month by Covici. Fricde, Inc., in "The Intriguing Duchess," by Dorothy de Brissac Campbell. Mrs. Campbell, an intensely sympathetic biographer, tells of Marie de Rohan's adventures with engaging frankness and presents a goodish bit of history in an entertaining manner. It may be thai she occasionally shows herself too ready to believe the worst—as, for instance, in the case of the parentage of King Louis XIV—but her book moves along at a lively clip, which is all that matters in a biography these days. The price of the book is $3.50. Trench Enemies Now Sell Meat Together ABERDEEN, Wash., (UP)—William Weisseiiboni and William Howser fought each other from trenches 25 yards apart in V 1918. Now they stand site by side and ^s•ait on the customers in Weksen- born's meat market here. Weissenborn was u member of Uhlan regiment and HOWOT was with the ICMth II. S. Infantry. Their companies fought each other three limes. . After the war Weissenborn came :o tri? United States.

Nor does cutting remove the cause. The cause ts internal—bad cir dilation of the blood in the loive bowel. The veins are flabby—tin. bowel \vnlls weak- the parts almost dead. To quickly and safely rid yourself of piles an internal medicine must be used to heal and strengthen the affected parts. Dr. J. S. Leonliavdt, a specialist after years of study discovered n reol internal Pile remedy. He named his prescription HEM-HOID and prescribed it for 1000 patients with the marvelous record of sue cess in 960 cases, and then dccidei every Pile sufferer should be able to get HEM-ROID from their own druggist.
