Don't In Oren Elliott, former Ottawan, now of Pomona, Calif., has the idea that one of the difficulties of the world today is that people don't even know how to worry properly. Elliott, who will be remembered here as a salesman, is now in the real estate business. He offers this philosophy: We worry about the Russians, then get run over by a neighbor's car. We worry about radio-active fallout, then ?et poisoned by nicotine, or while spraying the flowers. We worry about the youngsters running in front of cars, then drag them across the street against the warning of the red light. We worry about crashing in an airplane, then fall off a ladder while painting the house. We worry about getting enough exercise, then drive two blocks for a cup of coffee We worry about getting enough car greased every 1,000 miles, then never get a medical checkup. We worry about retirement, then go about carelessly to keep from lasting that long. We worry about H-bombs, then blow our heads off by smoking around gasoline. We worry about polio, then get crippled by running into a power lawn mower. We worry about tornadoes, then get. liquidated in a traffic accident. We worry about what people in remote countries say about us — but we adore idle gossip groups who operate in our own back yard, spreading poison about their neighbors.

By NELL BARNABY Librarian "Contemporary Authors," a valuable new reference volume which provides biographical information on current authors and writers, has been added recently to the library's collection. A new service published quarterly, the first volume c o n- tains more than 1,500 b i o g r a- phies of American and f o reign authors Each entry in' eludes personal NELL and family data, educational and professional background, the author's books and literary activities. We think this reference service will be especially valuable in providing biographical information on first-time authors and on writers who are little known. New 1963 editions of the "World Almanac" also are now avail able for use at the Library. In addition to a wealth of mis cellaneous facts and statistics on social, industrial, political, finan cial, and educational subjects, the 'World Almanac" gives visiting lours at the White House, wha it costs to send a letter to various international cities and how a woman who marries a foreigner may retain her citizenship.
