The Bookshelf By ROBERT HEMMINGSON MNMJOUS, CANOES AND FIRE PRO VIDE UNIQUE BOOK THEMES By Robert Hemmliagioi, Hud Librarian What is unique or different in Ufe tends to attract our attention. To a great extent the same applies to books. An unusual topic or theme for a book will catch our interest and lead us at least to lake a look. Glancing through the display of new books at the library, four titles intrigued me enough to examine them. Being different doesn't necessarily mean being good when it comes to books, but each of these would be pleasant reading. What do you da wlti a Kiitijou? by Alice G ilborn. They call her a latter-day Noah because of her collection of animals. This is a loving portrait by a daughter of her mother who is irresistibly attracted to all kinds of animals. She feeds 64 animals before breakfast each day. Among the many is Sainantha, the kinkajou, who loves to make nests in mattresses and hang by her tail in clothes closets. If you enjoy animal-people stories, this one is for you. The Ceofc«urU»s of the Ante by David Davits. In the remote Andean highlands are people who claim to live to be 130 years old or more. None of the major killing diseases which the rest of the world knows, such as cancer and heart disease, seem to afflict these people. Since many people would like to prolong I heir lives, these long-lived individuals are of more than passing interest. Dr. Davies, a gerontologist, has carefully examined the lives of these unique people and stresses the role of environment in prolonging life. The Bright and Glowing Place by Frank Rowsome Jr. Can you guess from the title the subject surveyed in this book? It is about man's relation with and dependence upon fire. Written with warmth and feeling, the book tells of fires that warm and fires that cook; fires to read by and fires that invite companionship. The origins of fire, its mythology and mystique, and the keeping, caring and lighting of fires are all a part of this appealing book. The Survival of Ike Bark Canoe by John McPhee. Almost a tost craft, the building of birch-bark canoes comes to life in this volume. The methods, the history and the lore are all here. In addition, McPhee takes the reader on a ISO mile trip through the Maine woods in one of these remnants of the past. A superior writer, McPhee provides a fascinating account. Fergus Falls (Mn.)

(AP) While Petrocelli is only a television series oE a cocky lawyer in a small town. North Alabama its: tte teal thing. Rainsville's own Judge Terry Tumlin Bush cou'd be known as the female counterpart. A 1972 graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law, the spunky blonde' has been in practice for two years. At 26, she is alreadv the municipal ;•_(< .e for Fyffe. Dutlon, "Well, there I was in blue jeans, a T-shirt with no bra, wearing penny loafers without socks.' And there was the other lawyer with his three-piece suit and diamond stick pin. Leaning back confidently in the swivel chair in her office, she said, "I think the judge figured if I had the guts to come to court like that, 1 ought to win." The blue-eyed judge said she's used to getting second looks from clients unfamiliar with her. "I've seen some Pisg?.';i and Section, the city at- people come in my office and torr.ey for Rainsville's 2,000 just stare. 1 see no relevance in residents, and one of two attorneys for DeKalb County Looking like a college student in her second-hand earth shoes, blue jeans and T-shirt, the outspoken woman admits she has a hard time convincing some people-that she's an attorney. "I guess people stereotype a female lawyer as a gray-haired woman who wears her hair in a bun." Pointing to her long, straight hair she adried, "1 tried that but my hair kept falling out. The reason I wear jeans is because I don't know -lien I'll have to go to a cow pasture to see a client's dead cows." Recalling her first case, a divorce suit, Terry related, "I went with my client to the courthouse to file for divorce and the other attorney was there filing for the husband. Everybody was there so the this but the first thing they ask is, 'How old are you?' "I can go to court in another county where they don't know me and there's always somebody who says, 'Can I help you, little girl?'" Despite the problems of first impressions, Terry said it helped to be a woman attorney more than it hurt. "It may be because 1 grew u(> in Fyffe, but I get along with everybody. Back in school, people would tell us to prepare to starve for the first two years of practice. But that hasn't happened yet." She said most of her clients tended to know her because of tier parents or grandparents. The problem comes in when people try lo contact her after office hours. -They call all my relatives if thev can't find me.

My husband died two years ago after a beautiful marriage that lasted for 30 years. I went completely to pieces and foolishly took up with a m?n shortly afterwards. I was lost and lonely, and he provided tr.e tenderness and consolation I desperately needed at the time. It was mostly a sexual attraction, and it lasted only a few months. After we broke up. I met a very fine, 72-year-old gentleman who was everything a woman could want in a husband. He proposed marriage and I accepted. Then I told him about my brief affair, thinking he would understand. Well, he didn't! Instead, he said he couldn't marry me knowing that 1 was "second-hand" merchandise. I told him that in all the years of my marriage. I never looked at another man. but he'said it. didn't matter—my affair after my husband's death was something he could never forgive. Abby. don't you think he is wrong 10 hold tnat atjuinbi. me? I didn't even know him when this happened. I love him and want to marry him. but 1 cannot understand his attitude. Please adx-is, • HEAVY . HEARTED DEAR HEAVY: I think he's wrong. But you could be Juckv to have found out how unforgiving and unfair he is. I'm sure you realiie how foolish you were to discuss your past «ith him. Don't make that mistake again.

II wornen »nu!d consider wearing a topless swimsuit in public, w have reached a new low in our civilization-even lower <hjn the decadence that precerled the fall of the Roman empire. Topless swimsuits! Have we lost all sense of decency? Who cares if we are bombed back to the Stone Age? What's left to save? MOTHER OF GIRLS DEAR MOTHER: The bottoms. DEAR ABBY: I am in my middle 70s. Since my wife's death 10 years ago. I have been seeing a very lovely married woman who is now in her middle 30s. She is married lo a man who barely makes a living for h«r and their children. 1 am making out my will and want to provide generously for this woman who has given me so much happiness. Him can I do so without casting a shadow on her reputation or embarrassing her? NAMELESS, PLEASE DEAR NAMELESS: T«lk to yoor lawyer, ud then discuss it with the woman.
