THURSDAY, APRIL 1, IMS- BLYTHBV1LLB (ARK.) COURIER NKWS PAGE I HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Russian Women Win Praise For Part They Play In War Germnny will never beat, Russia! You're thoroughly convinced of that on reading Walter Orneu- ner's "Round Trip to Kussia" (Upplncott: S3). The author, one of the foremost war correspondents to cover that bruising front, came away with some impressions thai arc bound to be enlightening to a lot of us who have wondered how the Russians have ueen able lo hold and advance against the horde of Nazi invaders. . Grjiebner gives much of the [. credit to the women of Russia. '; Regimented in great numbers, they are doing more than a. man's work in order to free their husbands and sons for ditty on the front. They labor .in machine shops, on ""£({;:/ farms, In munition factories and tank shops. You BCL the idea if il wasn't for their efforts, eni front would have fallen long ago. Rather alarming is Graebner's summary of the status of religion in Russia. lie citre, for Instance, (hat at the lime of the revolution, there were 454 Greek orthodox churches In Moscow. liy 10-34 there were less than 60, and now there are only 26. Religion, however, is probably on the upturn from all Indications. Citing as an Father liratin, former American priest, who now has more than 30,000 in his flock in Moscow. Through the books is the ever- present Russian plea for a second front. Russia will win its war ,. with Germany, the Reds have no £ doubt. But it will be made a much shorter struggle if they have the diversioncry aid that a second front will offer, they contend. grcssive Education Association, was to find out whether the traditional collect! entrance requirements and examinations were necessary to succcx; lii college , Conclusion reached is that not mly did graduates of Ihe schools xirtieipatlng do as well or better .linn those who prepared in the orthodox way. but the further n school departed from the tracil- lonal college preparatory program, the belter was the record of ILs graduates. Some of these findings are dls- )uted by more conservative educators. However, the war brought .iboul abandonment of the olil college board examinations, even through the progressive educators them off. It seems likely that the pre-war "college hoards" are dead lor keeps and that the, war hastened the demise of something that was doomed anyway. • * * HITTING 'lilt: HlCiH si'ots—Muitnr.r, H looked like an ordinary air blitz on a British town in "A Corpse by Any Other Name," William Mo'rrow; ($2), by II.

DAYS The Mexican War, hardships of the frontier an dthc jolitical backdrop of President S'olk's day make the complicated theme of Bernard DeVolo's "The Vear of Decision: 1846" (Little, Brown and Co.: $3.50). While historians, have studied these themes separately, tills book represents an attempt to unify them. Glory (the war), adventure (Santa Fee and Oregon trails), horrors (hardships, even cannibalism on the trail), and comic opera (Hollywootlian angles on the California Republic) go through the pages until the reader gels the feel that 1840 was the matrix of U. S. today. » > * THIRTY-SCHOOLS TEU, Till: I It STORY (Harper and Brothers: $4.00).

The book, "South From Corrcyidor" (Simon ami Schuster: $2.50), will convince you that the Ja]is arc dead ducks in the Pacific. ,'Faked Pn/isporls," by E|;nnis Whcalley (McMillin: $2.50), brings back a fictional character, Gregory Sallust, who won plenty of i plause in Whcatlcy's last offering Mrs. W. T. Ross. Pfc. William D. Hammond now in North Africa according to word received from him this wcel by Jimmy Sanders.
