Tlie child was reported In good condition "' a Mobile hospital despite the unusual exposure he underwent when Mrs. Jenkins allegedly snatched him from his crib in Hie pre-dawn hours of Wednesday morning and carried him by bus and taxi to Mobile.

Not thai the various men vho are essential to the difficult •:U'uat!6ns Miss Brush's women find ihciiiselves In urc a! the shadowy. Heeling sort; they're real enough, jut thev do take a back seal to the aclles, such as Harriet Lansing In 'Free Woman." Horrid, who knows what she wants — success in New Ycrk is a big way—goes after it and gels it. She emerges as lhe con- Irolled, competent, methodical, self- assured, self-made, independently wealthy head of Harriet Lansing, Inc., Counselor to Women. She wears a tailored suit and a cus- tcm-made silk blouse. Enough to Sivc a man In his right mind the horrors, but she lakes one husband ("lakes" is the correct word) nnd then another. The arrival of son Jon Is followed by the greatest blunder of her life, and thc realization that in her second husband she has met, her match, in the less pleasant sense of lh e phrase. Thc Counselor to Women, as will happen to people who advise other people on how to run their lives, comes a cropper, and tears arc shed for Harriet. "Two to New York" is thc story of Nancy, bride of a year from Burlington, O., who is IhVillcd over her holiday trip to New York with Sheila, only slightly married uml K'isc to thc ways of the Big Town. Intrigue, shot ' through wilh jeal-1 ousy. plays the theme .against a night-clubbing background, and matters arc brought fo a head only by tlie coining of Pearl Harbor. "Lady Not Alone" tells of a rather nice businesswoman nnd her ex-husband, who refuses to stay out of the picture. "Charm Bracelet" employs that piece of costume jewelry as a rather'artificial device for telling a Red Cross workers past, but Miss Brush manages it very well, the book Is for women. Tlie stories have appeared I" magazine form. "I tlo not mean lo seem provincial or smug or narrow-minded," says Mel lleimcr, author of "The World Ends at Hoboken' (Wliittle- scy House: $2.00), "but the minute I get as far west as Philadelphia, I'get that frantic, desperate feeling as if I'm in a vacuum." iielmer, a New York newspaperman, lovc.s his ' city with unashamed passion and no pretense at perspective.
