THURSDAY, SKI'TKMHICR 14, 1944 HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS It takes a mighty ndroll pen to orLray war characters In a novel i such n way as to present some- iliig new and interesting, lint jllbert W. Gabriel, in his "1 Gol a ountry" iDoubleday, Uoran: t3), as done a swell job of portraying, 'irnc different personalities .in u lory built around a corporal and wo UciilenanUi In Uncle Sum's Ar- j 1 . Plrst figure is the corporal, -Prank lansen. 'J'he kid Is an Introvert; n the other htuul, LieutennnlOcls- cr is nil extrovert, while Lieutcii- nt Orin is a swell guy, just in etween the two. You feel sorry for the slight flan- en, who uncomplainingly bears Ills urdon of .the wnr In frigid Alasa. You feel disgusted at the selt- cntered duties of Lieutenant, Gels:i. who uses superior airs to gel liinsclf n promotion to a cnp- iiliicy. You thrill at the antics of lieutenant Otin, a tlevil-inay-cai'c Hot whose chief faults are his ourage, women, and his father's heck .book. Jt's a mighty fine novel Gabriel las built around these three, with onie other pretty swell minor clmr- ctcrs to einbcllbh the ; plol—Slrlu.s, ith whom the meek llnnsen falls n love; Major McOuire, a swashbuckling Irish soldier of fortune vlio befriends Hanson, nnd Msr- Ini Walnwrlght. Red Cross gal.ov- :r whom Lee Orm is dippy. The author covers a broad range >! human emotions in this novel— ove. hnte, drunkenness, psucdo- elegance, misery, war, and the etnp- ,yness and fullness of the human mart. In addition, he describes tn ninutc detail the life of our men vlio cleared the frozen wastes of he Alinillnn.s of the yellow Jnp lorde. You'll like II. LOVE GAME .AND SET Richard Barrett's "The Truant" Diitton: ,52.15) is,a story of change- ind tennis.

But, ,a star in his' own ; rlght> ie necessarily travels in close' companionship with the Fleck on a goodwill tour through Japan. The story of the young, hermit- like Coil is well done, a psychological study which is absorbing.' The talc of the famous tennis star, battling for his soul ns well as his ^Itlc. Is less convincing and somewhat stereotyped. But the latter pnrl'qf the book is rescued'by de r scriptions of tennis matches which make'ninny a sportswdter en- vious. In them, rather lhan in thc ovc story, .Richmond Barrett has ft real claim on his readers, WES/J'EKN COLOl', You'll remember Rainbow Ttiulcy! and his range detective work from •lis (-srapades with Seng Me!-tang r ;hc beautiful Chinese girl on whom I :ie liaii n crush. Also you'll rcincin- nor Ills partner, Grumpy Giblw. the short feller with whom he paired In solving so many range mys- Lertes. , So you'll 'get n bell out of reading on the adventures of this pair — "Ilorselhief Creek" (Doublcdny, bora n: 52). Plot is based on thc double murder of Cilcrina Gordon's father- jiml their Chinese cook. And it takes the caliber of the Ripley- Oibte team to find out that a rival umchcr. linked up wilh a Chinese leader, was ihe guilly party. Odd enters' the picture, as docs Seng Mel-Inng again. When an author, writing a mystery story', keeps his chief character in an insane asylum for three- quarters of the book, you have something. That's what Virginia Perdue dues in "Alarm and Excursion" (Crime Club: $2).

Finale pf the book Isn't what you'd think itwould be. especially with such a considerate nurse as Miss Chapin. I '_ magnitude of the world's greatest military undertaking, the Jun c C im-adon of northern France. In his "Invasion" ID. Apple tonCentury: $2.60), Wcrtenbaker explains In quite some detail thc men| behind the plans for Invasion, an Inkling of the overall strategy, the men leading the invasion, the early battles and the G. I.'s who won those battles. Best descriptions and mosl Interesting passages deal with the contused, hand-to-hand skirmishes In the vague area called thc "front linos." Wcrtenbaker makes the point Dial from up front, where Ihe infantry Is in contact with the- enemy, it's pretty hard lo tell Just what's happening. As battle assignments nnd objectives are handed out from army to division to regiment lo Iralliilloii to company to pin toon, ihe plan of battle becomes .rnore and more piecemeal until .it behooves the individual soldier to do what he Is told and not worry about what the ml of HID army is doing. tt is not a "noiv-it-can-be-told" book. It is a good eye-witness nc- counl by a good reporter who was on hand for the bloody landings, Hie precarious beachhead foothold and the later successes in the Co\i- tances - Avranches break-through that proved the undoing of ihe German 7th Army.
