Brandeis had appeared as legal counsel in suits which upheld the 10-hour day, which had lowered mass transportation \ with utilities rates in Massa- j chusctts. i He had won a case before the Supreme Court upholding the right of the state to regulate working conditions for women. He fought monopolies and exorbitant freight rates. These activities enlisted against him such opponents as the directors of U. S. Steel, the volves. Richard .1. Pruett, a Project Mercury astronaut, is marooned in space in his bell-shaped capsule which Is orbiting the earth at an altitude of 100 miles. Because his retrorockets fail to function, he faces death by asphyxiation in 43 hours. Tense drama unfolds as the United States and Russia exhaust all efforts to rescue the stranded spacemen. Martin Caidin is a prolific writer on aerospace and aviation subjects and his grasp of the technological dements involved in writing this novel adds the necessary air of realism. In this one, tho author describes 14 major battles of the Civil War, and places the bat- ties and campaigns in up-to-date surroundings. matter.

He gained valuable knowledge on astronautics while serving as government consultant, newsman and broadcaster during his association with Projects Mercury and Gemini. An added bonus are the appendices which contain information on technical aspects of both the U. S. and Russian space- flights. Space rescue is an all but impossible task and the events leading up to the attempted rescue of Pruett offer gripping and gcrald, and John Curley were | suspenseful reading. Because of the topic about which Caidin writes, each episode is both revealing and lhe news as either for or against Brandeis. This "great debate" is the sub- rewarding.

BEYOND ARABIAN SANDS, by Grant C. Butler (Devin-Adair Co., 223 pages). One dark night in the autumn of 1901, a group of 40-o d d Bedouin raiders crept out of the desert to assail the ancient caravan town of Kidayah. Through a combination of luck and bravery that approached foolhardiness, the small band accomplished its objective. The caravan center was won, and it became the nucleus of a desert kingdom for the young prince who was the expedition's leader. His name was Abul- Aziz ibn Abdul-Rahman al Faisal al Saud. He also describes the last days of the old king, and of the rule of his son, and the ominous questions that lie ahead — who will lead the kingdom after the old king's last son is dead? Another — and broader — look at the Arab world today Is provided by Grant Butler in "Beyond Arabian Sands." Butler describes his travels, not only in Ibn Baud's domains, but in the 12 other independent states of the Arab world — ruled by kings, prime ministers, presidents, and one shaikh. His travels took him through Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and the sheikhdoms of peninsular Arabia. The author is a traveler, lecturer and writer, and he has drawn his material from observations made during 15 years of travel in the Near East. He reports on interviews with President Nasser of Egypt, kings Hussein, Hassan and Idris, Algeria's Ahmed Ben Bella and Saudi Arabia's Prince Fel- sal, all of which make interesting reading. BEST SELLERS After this firsl victory llicrc: came years of desert fights j and lengthy campaigns, each on building up the. power of the young prince. As the years past, he no longer called him.'•elf prince, but king — King | Ibn Saud, and he was no longer j young. j In his heyday he ruled more i I of Arabia's deserts than any I I man since the early caliphs. The rise of this desert monarch Is the centerpiece of this book by David Howarth, an American author. He describes the desert campaigns that broadened the king's realms, and of the vast oil deposits that helped to finance them. He describes modern Arabia today, with its fantastic wealth and poverty — from fleets of Cadillac;? and hidden harems i !
