At Your Library-- Sciosophy Book Lacks Borrowers By MISS LYDIA BARRETTE Mason Clty.Librarian Mrs, E. J. Kelly stopped with an exclamation of delight and said: "You have such beautiful bou quels in the hall! Those big cat tails just fit the big stairways." A patron brought them in for th art room and didn't wait to b thanked or leave his name. He brought enough for three bouquet so there is one in the art room one at.tho foot of the north stair pbinling up to the art room anil on by the graceful front stairway. A young woman of 65 wished t see the world as she had neve seen it before--she would go an ome as she pleased and her new ome would be a coach trailer. fter traveling thousands of miles rom New England to the .Gulf, rom, the Atlantic to the Pacific everal times over by different outes, she has written a book about t called "Trailering at Sixty Five.'" t reveals America on (he road. *Iow she's considering Europe and South America, the last paragraph promising herself the Parthenon in Athens. - , Deals With Everything In his book "The Higher Foolish ness" David Starr Jordan writes: "Sciosophy deals with everything 'rom the cure of toothache am heartache to the fourth dimension of space or even to the fifth; fron the Witch of Endor to" the Ange of Mons; from the rabbit's foot tc the jade amulet." And I presume systemalizec ignorance by which the autho characterizes sciosophy early in the book does deal with everything or at least invade every field. Jor dan invented the word sciosoph; and contrasts it with science. Science is ordered knowledge, h special showing see our exciting collection of .

The book builds up in an ironical shiou, the phantom' realities In hich men trust. It has humor but :op.le aren't reading the, library opy these days. It has stood on shelves without being borrowed 1 10 years. Docs anybody want o try it or should it be with- rawn? · Well Reviewed Max Eastman has a book called Sense of Humor," that hasn't one o'ut since 1944. It is well re- iewed and gives an historical iasis for studying humor and for lial reason may have been used or reference. But it is Eastman's Saul Scheidlinger has a book called "Psychoanalysis and Group Behavior." Another book along these lines'is by Dr. Paul Schilder called "Psychoanalysis, Man n n d Society." amiliarity with literature that nakes the book delightful. There are several volumes of Bile plays that haven't been used ately. Every book which hasn'l circulated in the past two years s gone over at inventory to make sure it justifies the space it takes ip and the dusting it requires. Of ourse there are books that are iscd for reference nnd do not circulate much, but every book should uslify the space it occupies one vay or another. Marquis Child, an Iowa author vhose columns are often seen in he. newspapers, has a nesv book called "The Farmer Takes a land." This is his Mvcntli or eighth book and discusses the elec- ric power revolution in rural America. The book traces the dramatic development of farm clec- :rification and the many social and economic changes which have resulted from it. Farm buildings get out of repair and. new ones have to be built. J. C. Woolcy has a very practical and useful book called "Repairing and Constructing Farm Buildings." Villiers has a new book of adventure and adventurers. The locale is the I n d i a n Ocean. Chapter 19 is about shipwrecks and advcn- irc. Publishes Rebuttal In the New Yorker, A. J. Liebling rote some articles about "Chief- o, the Second City," which infuri. tecl Chicagoans. He received a ood of irate comments in h i s mil. Now he has published a book n rebuttal. No original statement as had to be changed and he de- ends his acid-biting personal opin- on. Through Florida waters by scow nd motor boat,-Rube Allyn, a wa- crways reporter after the war, md built his own boat, "Water Wagon," which he describes in his new book and tells of his Florida adventures. The history of Persia deserves ribute a n d Robert Payne pays .hat tribute to the culture and the people in his .book "Journey to Persia." He went to Iran on bc- lalf of the Asia Institute of New York and he has brought out a colorful book about the country today vith glimpses of the splendors of he past. New Writing Books There are two new books on writ- ng and three other books of literature, one by Beverjy Nichols with reminiscences of Gertrude Law- fence, Cecil Beaton, Somerset Maugham and a host of others.
