Adventure in the early 1700's was to be had for the asking. The West Indies were bulging with riches, which drew British merchantmen, which in turn drew the attention of pirates, notably Stecle Bonnet, Vane and Blackboard and Anne Bonncy, who had a price on her glamorous head. The coastal area which today is North and South Carolina was rich in arable soil, hardwoods and game, but two attempts by the English to settle there had failed miserably. The Indians were hostile and pirates Infested the coves and inlets. Such were the circumstances into which Captain-Woodes Rogers and Roger Mainwairing led a group of artisans and tradesmen • from Bristol.

"Prize Stories of 1944," edited by Hcrsbhel Brickell (Doubelday Doran: $2.50), consisting of this year's O. Henry Memorial Prize Story winners and seventeen other short stories, introduces many new writers. This year's awards go to au- ihors who are less well known than former winners, but who have solid backgrounds of experience and craftsmanship to their credit and have produced stories of talent, if not brilliance. Playwright Irwin Shaw takes top honors with "Walking Wounded." Peter Crome, a British soldier in Cairo, has not seen his wife Anne in three years. Desperately and Ju- lilely he tries to recall her image. "Wailing-Wall Crome, Agony, Cairo division," he calls himself apologetically. "Six years. Some bloody M.

Young Germans, "athletic club members" on parade in Britain, launch nationwide sabotage at a signal. Defensive blows against them are Frlcdo- lin's excuse for declaring war.
