BOOKS-ART Mystery Anthology Makes Good Reading M GREAT TALES OF MURDER. Edited by Helen Mcdoy and Brett Halliday, (Random House, J5« pp: J2.96.) This is the fourth anthology oJ mystery stories by members of the Mystery Writers of America, a postwar organization gaining in both reputation and strength. The MWA is dedicated to the twin propositions that an occasional get- to-gether helps mystery writers turn out new thrillers and also forms an organization to benefits for writers, This volume proves that' an occasional chat over cups or glasses does no harm to a writer's style and material. Uke all anthologies this one contains enough variety so that readers may skip a story or two. It is safe to say, though, that mystery fans will find aome fine reading. Writers represented include Q. Fitrfdc, ; J6hh Dickaon Carr, Hal- Ilday. Walter Snow. McCloy, Lillian d« la Torre. Ellery Queen and Will Oursler. (HLA) Dust Storms Said Possible FORT WORTH, Aug. IS.
