Speaking to a group of approximately »in members and guests, Mrs. Kmos entertainingly told of the lighter frivolous books. ''Ksmo of Paris." by Ksme Davis, which i« a aufohiographv describing: tho exciting life of t lie singer, dancer and rather flippant character, and "Little Coquette." bv Renee MeCnrmick. which, as Mrs. Manes phrased it, is a "fairy tale for adults." It tells of the tray, extravagant prewar period of France. In the description of more serious books, Mrs. Manes related to the gathering "Trumpet Voluntary." by C. B. Stern. This P'iblioation Is a en] ]ee t ion of gay. whimsical incidents of life in wartime T/ondon. Reviewing- at length, tho librarian described a much discussed no vol. "Tho History nf Home Hanks." by Joseph Pi nn ell, which vividly relates tho battles of the Civil War. Mrs. Manes believes this is one of the most powerful books over written. She was also impressed especially by "A "Walk in the Sun." by 1 Tarry Brown, the "walk" 'being tho walk from a landing bnrgo on an Italian beach to a farmhouse, during a battle. A run-out best-seller. "Land I Have Chosen." by Kllin Berlin, was also included. In a search for security, an American girl goes to contemporary Hermany and a Herman girl travels to America, as written on tlto pag-os of Mrs. Berlin's novel. Relating the events of the period between tho first world war and tho second, tho present political problems and the problems to be ox- poetod after tho war, is Stunner Wollos* "Time for Decision." In this historical resume, the author gives his own opinions as to solution of postwar political differences. Also included in tho non-fiction list was "Pooplo in Our Journey," by Kdg-ar Snow, who tells of the lives of natives of China. "Russia. Mongolia and India. His literary achievement also deals with the political problems of the various areas of the world. Mrs. Banes seemed to enjoy reviewing non-fictional "Anna and The King of Siam," by Marparet Landon. This hook is tho story of the lifo of a Welsh girl who spent most of her life in Siam. A particularly humorous book described by tho reviewer was "Ooodbyo, Mr. Chippendale," by Kobsjobn Oiddings. which tolls of the world of the antique hunters. Concluding" the session was a sketch of "Pastoral," by Neville Shuto. a wartime love story: "Green .Dolphin Street." by Klizabeth Goudge, which relates tho vivid life of two sisters; "Cluny Brown," by Margery Sharp, and "Si mono," which tolls of tho days preceding: the entrance of the Germans into an area of Franco.
