"The Wild Blue Yonder" (Dutton: $3). Here is the almost incredible sld- "y of America's uiipreparediicss before Pearl Harbor—Ihe " prejudices against flying, Germany's infringement on America's patent system the blood-letting control of the nr- namcnts industry by a murderous few.

S|;aatz Doo- iltle, Cbennault, Brereton, Enkcr, Kenny and others.

"The Barricades," l )y Ph,,,,, loynbce (Doiibledny Dpr.iti: $2.50), is the story of a man who was born' too lute to follow in the path of his own ideals. Michael Rawlins, English schoolmaster, is fired from h|s school. Rather 'than feeling dismay or shame, Rawlins is overcome by relief, a _sensc of freedom that h:s nine years of teaching had quelled. He determines on an adventurous life—no obligations no conventions. A man of ideals, however, he is incapable of mere drift'"«. :A former student of his, David Markharn, emotionally immature follqws him tp London, believing Ii s .dismissal is due lo politically liberal ideas.
