S/Navy, a fleet that has grown into the powerful in the world, and one that Is engaged In global warfare from the Pacific to the slfores of the Continent. Dewey, the man who knew Admiral Farragut as n'boy, and Admirals Ring and Halsey as n wan, is the subject of an Intensely Interesting biography by Lauiln Hall Healy and Luis Kntncr, "The Admiral" (Ziff-Davis: $3.50). Particularly timely right now Is the story'of the man who gave the tl.- S. Navy the start ft needed to bring it up to its present power. His feats in the Philippines (remember the battle of Manila) led to our eventual acquisition of the islands, the breaking of Spain's naval might and gave warning to all major powers that oiirs wus ti fleet fit to nght nny.' Aside from a history of his imval accomplishments, the book given a homely side to this great naval character. Particularly touching Is the reference to his dead wife right at, the,start af the' volume. Tlie authors portray him us a diplomat, the savior of the Philippines whose farsightedness envisioned Japan's Interest. In the Islands, and u imvnl strategist ranking with the (jrcntcsl or all time. Coincidental, the book points out, Admiral Dewey started his career Dec. 7, 1897, n dote marked later by Japan's Infamous attack on Pearl Harbor and the Philippines. * • • ABOUT TWO I'llYSICIANS Number among those popular religious novels that have been hitting the book shelves lately J. R. Perkins' "The Emperor's Physician (Bobbs-MeiTlll: $2.50). Following On the heels of Slio- lem Ash's "The Apostle," "The Robe," by Lloyd Douglas, "Blessed Are the Meek," the life of St. Francis of Assist, by Zotja Kossnk- Szcucka, and other religious volumes, this one ranks with any.

Hut that's only one of the seemingly silly things most of us will be doing in the postwar era through the medium of home food freezing units. The first Important contribution and guide book to their opeia- tlons and development. "Zero Stor- Your Home," by Hoyden (Doublcday Dorun: $2.50), age In Sparks has Just been published. Sparks asserts history will record the name "home frcc/cr" In the same boltl ty|>e that It now records THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 1944 Ihe automobile nnd (he airplane. For the last three years two deep freezing units have licen the chief attractions In one of your reviewer's basement rooms. We've eaten wild duck brought down In tlie Lake Erie marshes near Snudusky, O., two winters ago and kept In Hie frcegcr. Delicious Is not the word, and neither Is it the word for the fresh red raspberry slioii cake that /allowed the- ducks. Contrary to the general idea, ficc/.iiii} nulls for home use% arc cheaper than the average electric refrigerator. One we operate Is an old slx-liole Ice cream cabinet. The other Is n modern qutck-riceze unit of smaller capacity. The latter has a lower temperature control than Hie old Ice cream cnWnet. We shock-freeze In the small one, store In the larijci 1 nnd (hen turn up the thermostat and use the smaller for more storage. So, Sparta' book Is THE book we've been looking for. He has done a, grand reporting Job and has told his story very well, His book should be next to (he ttur cook book In the home of every frozen food en- thusiast. Even If you don't hove a food freezer, you'll wajit the book. Freezers are not a luxury. Tliey actually Rave their cost many times over by permitting one to store and freeze when prices are lowest. Sparks' book will tell you this and a lot of other reasons why the food freezer will be a necessary piece of equipment for every home when materials again become 1 available. HAM CYCI.OUAMA Salvador Dall's first novel, "Hidden Faces" (Dial: $3.00), Is just what you'd expect from the artist, whose hallmark is the limp and dripping watch, as far as the essence of the book Is concerned. It's outre, it's out of this world. The characters are as psychotic a elan of decadent perverts as yon could expect to sec in u seven-day opium jag. In fact, Betka, (he "polymorphous perverse," and her pipe pal, Ceelle Goiidremi, swap the poppy pill tack and forth as casually as though they were lighting up with a coffin nail. » But startling to those who can see no form, framework, rhyme' or reason In Ball's paintings, Is the perfectly orderly plot. The author exploits the fall of France, depicted through the utter decadence of his hlgh-iiorn characters, the principal being the Count of Orand- sanics. whose idea of a little light bedtime reading Is a volume on dcmonology. Falling to produce a son, he becomes hipped on the Idea of forcing the Issue, so to speak, by a mystical process termed "bending of the blood." Hitler pops in for a brief chapter—a death scene which Involves much washing of smelly feel; the Marquis, French underground troops, provide a down-to-earth touch. You may laugh, you may be darkly disturbed. But If you start the book, you'll most certainly finish It. Many think Dal! Is kidding the public when he paints wrecked automobiles with flower.? blooming In the back seat. Be that ns II may, lie's not kidding when he writes.

Both eventually meet while attending the daughter of the Governor of Syria, afflicted with .leprosy. A firm friendship Li struck up which leads them into the palace of Herod and other bigwigs of the time, eventually bringing them into contact with the Hcnler of all healers, Jesus of Nazareth. Adventures of the two follow In parallel with the life of Jesus as He performed His miracles of mak- healing; the 'lep- lame walk, and bringing the dead back to life. Galen rapidly Is convinced of the Savior's supernatural powers ami becomes a disciple; Cumaius is a doubting Thomas and believes nothing Jesus does Is without, quackery—until, In defending the Lord, he dies at the hands of Malclms, chief servant of the high priest. He breathes his last by calling the Naz- arcan "My Master."
