The president and secretary of the organization, with headquarters in Stratford, complained that with election news and issues crowding the news columns, it's tough for a struggling young group to get a plug, but that they need help in attracting new members. The SPOWOTS is a conservative organization, concerned with the gradual disappearance from the American scone of the old-fashioned wooden toilet seat. They're "against these new plastic and stain- less steel models" of them even painted red!) and they're banding together to do something about it. SPOWOTS is the Society for the Preservation of Wooden Toilet Seats, more popularly know as the Birch Johnners. This is the kind of conservation organization we'd be proud to join. We're'all for conserving the best of the past. If you, too, want to sit down and be counted, the address of SPOWOTS is P. O.

Marshall concedes that his Btory includes "many inventions," but it is reasonably faithful to such fads as are known about the colony ha was founded in 1587 on Roanoke island in "Virginia" (now North Carolina). John White, the Raleigh-appointed governor of the Colony, saw it through the early days of Us establishment, then returned to England to prcs for shipment of ammunition. War Spain intervened, and by the time he could return in 1591 the colony had vanished. The only trace the colonists had left was the word "Croatan" (the name of a local Indian tribe) carved in the trunk of a tree. Marshall has devised an end to the story, informing conjecture with considerable research into Indian ways and early American geography. His hero is Martyn Sutlon, an actual Roanoke settler of whom nothing more than a name survives.

That the general reader may be a school child, college student or adult makes the job a difficult one, but the latest issue of meets the challenge, Key To New York, Empire City, by Frances Diane Robolti (Fountainhead $2.95 paper, $4.95 hardbound): It is a pity the most recent addition to this year's lush crop of New York City guidebooks has appeared so late in the season. Billed as a World's Fair edition, it reached bookstores only day ef or the Fair closed down for the winter. The fascinating passages are rich in local color, historical background a nd off-beat anecdotes. There are sections on neighborhoods, Ethnic Groups, Bridges, Pier and Ships and even Tug Boats. Some of the color, spills over to enliven the customary lists of theaters, shops and restaurants. The listings are comprehensive, and run down the alphabet from Amusement to Zoos. In the Restaurant section, the author overplays her favorite spots, often neglecting others just as deserving, ilso, the author is overly casual about listing prices, which could spell danger for the visitor on a budget. Travels Through Brazil: "The Green Horizon" by i 1 be Phelps (Simon Schuster $5): Phelps, a British novelist and critic, explored Brazil all the way from the Amazon to Rio Grande do Sul, the southernmost state. A good many travelers nave described Rio, Sao Paulo and the new capital, Bra- solia, but not so many have been up and down the Amazon in such places as Sao Luis, Forlaleza and the interior of the states of Ceara, Pernambuco, Bahia and Parana and their byways. In every place 'this traveler had a letter of introduction or a Brazilian friend or managed somehow to leave the tourist path and discover for himself how people lived and what a community was like. He even dug up a Russian colony of 1300 "old believers" jn Parana that most people did not know existed. He visited Londrina, the boom coffee town which has sprung up out of the wilderness to make fortunes for overnight. "The Green Horizons" is thoroughly entertaining and encompasses not just a traveler's view of Brazil but that of a thoughtful man who apparently took elaborate notes, contrasted one section with another and came up with information that perhaps even Brazilians have not learned.

It was equally important for its psychological effect on the victory- starved Americans and on the cocky Japanese.

Dr. Merrill dug deeper and came up with a fairly complete account of the mission. The raid, from a military viewpoint, was no more than a pinprick on Japan. But it cost dearly.

Monday Morning By JOHN CHAMBERLAIN Election campaigns that drag on for wccJrt are hard enough to endure. But the worst thing connected with them is thc Monday morning quarterbacking that one has to listen to after they are all over. At thc moment many of Barry Goldwatcr's erstwhile supporters are vying with his liberal Republican detractors in disparaging the conduct of the campaign. Well, it may bo granted that nothing fails' like failure, especially in the dog- eatldog game of politics. (As John F. Kennedy once said, one doesn't have friends in politics, one has only' associates.) But there are standards of seeinli- nesj in Monday morning quarterbacking, and it is up to us who are not part of the organizational apparatus of either party to try to enforce them. THE FIRST standard of sccm- liness is that no one should 1 lo shift the blame for a headquarters decision to a lieutenant who was trying his best to carry it out. Now, the fact is that Goldwaler ran his own campaign. He made mistakes. If they were indeed the cause of his defeat, then he and he alone be attacked. But that is not the way that many of hi followers now see it. They are engaged in the degrading game of trying to blame other "men around Barry" for the Lyndon Johnson landslide. Thus we have Clifton White, who did the yeoman work in getting the nomination for Barry, cracking down on Denison Kilcliel, Goldwater's close friend and legal adviser, and Karl Hess, one pf the Senator's spetchwriters. Seconding Clifton White, we have columnists complaining that Hess was an amateur with no experience in political campaigning. The truth of the matter is that Karl Hess wrote a major part of the I960 Republican platform, which was good enough lo support Kichard Nixon in a photo finish fight against Kennedy. Prior to that, Hess had worked for the Republican National Committee when Jim Selvage wa handling its public relations. I've known Karl Hess a long time, and at one point in the campaign 1 look a couple of ideas for speeches to him. He liked one of them, and said he'd see ivhat he could do with it. "But you must understand," he said, "that Goldwater thinks that only one. thing counts now, and that is to erase this picture that he is trigger happy. Maybe he's right. And who am I to say that he is wrong?" THE LACK of "facts" in Goldwater's speeches has been blamed on William J. Baroody, head of the American Enterprise Institute, who was on leave lo act as a research man for the campaign. But'the truth is that the -American Enterprise Institute is long on facts. Goldwater, quite early in the same, made a personal decision lo deal in issues. He thought that other Republican speakers would support him by handing out the statistics. Thus, when Ronald Reagan, a Hollywood figure, used plenty of facts and figures in a pro Goldwater TV-show, Goldwater gave the green light to several repetitions of the Reagan contribution. If any of hypercricticaj Republican pros had beaten Reagan lo the effective formulation of a fact- studded show, they could have had plenty of air time, loo. In Connecticut, a typical 'eastern Republican" state, Ihe wolves are out to get John Lupton, who was in charge of the local Republican campaign for Goldwater. Lupton worked his heart out in the vain attempt to produce a victory, and he had good help from Malcolm Baldridge, a pro Scranton man. Before the San Francisco convention Lupton studiously avoided taking sides in the primary fight; it was his business, he said, to build up a Connecticut citizens' organization that would be prepared to support any slate the convention happened to choose. When the convention- chose Goldwater, Lupton did his best to put the choice over. Now the "regulars," many of whom sat on their, hands, are trying to purge him for loyally supporling the parly. As a glandular optimist and confirmed ticket splitter (I voted for Democrat Tom Dodd for Senator) I am prepared to accept the November 3 verdict provided that Lyndon Johnson follows his more conservative impulses. But, before subsiding I had to have hiy say about thc unseemly Monday morning quarterbacking. Ross A Tribute to John F.

In order to earn more about the distribu- of the other suits, so that will know later what to do about the spade finesse, he next cashes three rounds of clubs. As it happens, West shows out on the third club, so South discovers, that West started with exactly two clubs. Declarer now plays a diamond in an effort to learn how that suit Is divided. East wins with the king and continues with the ten, which South ruffs. Since West does not follow to the diamond, South now has a complete reading of the distribution. The question of which way to finesse the spade is solved beyond a shadow of a doubt. West started originally with precisely three hearts, two diamonds and two clubs, which proves that he started with exactly six spades. This, In turn, means that East was dealt only one spade. So South cashes the king- of spades, forcing East to piny his only spade, and then leads another spade and flncssra the absolute assurance that the finesse wilt win.
