"Nflradc in Hellas" tMacMlllnn:,$2.75). •Tis n first-hand recounting of Ihe baltlo of the doughty Greeks; n tale: ol how they vanquished the pompous Italian army, only lo be crushed, limnillnlcil and enslaved by n vastly supeiior Gorman army.

And sey, is that. Hero is a swashbuckling Dane of the ctays of the Vikings, and his and exploits of other warriors of that day nut Hitler to shame. Full of the folklore of Thor, Wodin, and olher gods, and has a nice romance to tie In with the blood and thunder. * * * ' MISCELLANY Nnncy Hales ''The Prodigal Women" is followed by a collection of short stories on women, "Ue- tween the Dark and the Daylight" (Scrlbncr's: $2.50). Tlicse short stories range in mood from warnilh and simplicity lo bitterness and satire. One, "The Japanese Garden." is as .true and as deep as a commentary on the fundamental Inconsistency and Incongruity of a world at war as can be found. Particularly timely riglit now is Cory Ford's "Short" Cut to Tokyo" (Ecribuer's: $1.75). Ford known nationally for his magazine articles, writes of Alaksa and the Aleutians, ami their importance as stepping .stones to Tokyo, and the rigors of the Arctic Hint hide the manipulations of friend and .foe alike. I Ford, .who. spent months in this section, warns that Japan still has as its paramount aspiration Invasion of the united stales coast, and that this northernmost outpost of ours is where the blow might, come from, if ever. Books on medicine generally are rather dull reading to the layman But Dr. Gregory Zilbord's ""Mind, Medicine, and Man" (Harcourl Brace:- $3.50) ts a bit different than the ordinary heavy volume on this 'subject. Particularly interesting is his treatment of psychiatry, and how knowledge of this subject will influence our thinking about 'mental and physical maladies. Even touches on medicine and Its relalon to religion. Sir Thomas- Beccliam—orchestra conductor, composer, entrepreneur, businessman—relates the story of his life in leisurely fashion. The world of music and its devotees emerges from "A Mingled Crime" (Putman: $3.50), arrayed in anecdote, observation and criticism. Prom the time the non-prodigy 6-yrnr-old astounds his parents by asking permission to learn the piaijo. ^-'.through ,t.he : .conventional schooling of an English gentleman, into the many-sided pursuit of a rigorous profession, Sir Thomas trcnts the reader lo personalities, events, and reflections with infinile 'ce ami disarming candor. ialiiij; to ihe sale or HOI'S. ...

CHAPTER VI r riIE young woman in the gay dress moved swiftly lo Major Jackson's side. • There was a possess iven ess about her whole altitude that irked Belli Carter. "Lieutenant Carter, Ihis is Miss I.ila Danton," Brit said. 9 "How do you do," Beth said. "You dear girl—you're dressed so oddly," wos Lita's answer. Dcth steeled herself and kept back Ihe retort. Llla knew instinctively that her presence disturbed Beth, and she was satisfied in the recognition. Perhaps this girl's anger would prove useful someday, she thought.' Besides, who was any girl lo take a moment of any man's lime if Lita wanted that .moment? ^p*^ ' "If seems' so odd, calling a woman by an army officer's title," Lita continued. "So out of plact —you know. OJi, I suppose I'm old-fashioned, and believe a woman's place is in a man's arms." ' Beth -made no reply. Major Jackson was maneuvering Lite DaMon away. "Lila, how on e»rtK. did you j«l here, and what we you doing in this part oi the world?" Jackson asked. "You thought I was 5000 miles away, didn't you?" Lila asked. "I confess I did." JJETH felt very uncomfortable. Lifa was monopolizing Brit now, and there part of the present ihsfant thai belonged to Beth. "No, my darling boy, I'm not 5000 miles away. I'm like the proverbial-bad penny." "Yes,"'..Beth thought, "and perhaps in more ways than one." "I told ygu I'd show up just when you least expected me to," Lita purred. "You've lost track of me, hut I've followed you all these years—Ihrougli your joining up and gelling a commission' and being promoted to a major's rank." "I was lucky," Brit said. Bril's thoughts went back to Ihe time he. first knew Lita. She had been a glamorous woman reporter when he was still an undergraduate at Berkeley. Lita Danton was sophisticated and worldly wise, even then, and he had felt quite sophisticated himself escorting her to Ihe rough- and-tumble wolerfront dance halls that came back to life with 3.2 beer. "From second lieutenant to major in a year." Lila spoke flatteringly. "Why, you were only a second lieutenant three months. 1 think yon are someone worth watching." "Better gel th» FBI, then," Brit Joked. - • . B«th fancied she saw a trace of a shadow cross Lita's fa.ce. But it disappeared into "a torrent of light conversation. Beth tried to estimate the woman. Sh< was furious at Lita for Her deTib'e'rate sarcasm and snub». She was furious at Brit JacVtiqp for letting Lita get away with it. And finally she was furious ja herself, for allowing the inciderjt to hurl her. It was a situation hardly prescribed for in Army Regulations. Brit had told Beth she wit the only woman on this remote Pacifk, island. Now Lila had appeared. Was Brit's surprise entirely real? "How's everything back in Satt Francisco?" Brit asked Lita. "I haven't been there for longest time," Lila answered affectedly. "I've been working ou in Ihe Orient. Very interesting work. Brit, dear, I've learned f» smattering of two languages since we last saw each olher." "Your progress is amazing," Beth said. T ITA turned toward her with * "What, are you still her*?' glance. "Yes, I think so," Lita satd.V'I think so. And I think a con*id«!i[> able number of other person think so, too." "I'm sure they do," Beth said 1 Now she was angry at herself again, for enlering into such verbal exchange. ' Lita took Brit Jackson's ami. ' "We must go for a stroll. .H haven't seen each other for long," she said. "Where do yp»" want lo take me—down this | or to your headquarters?" "Well, to tell you the truth .,." "I never like the truth," Lit* said gaily, "it will be your headquarters." She lurned to Efijh "Goodby Lieulenant . . . Lieutenant ... Oh, Lieutenant Wh»t'« Your Name. Sorry I forgot, »bj| I never remember women's nimti No difference, I can always cit you Lieutenant. I presume yota and the major always call ,«»S« other by your military title*, dotf you?"
