McL There has been a recent popularity for small sized books which linger somewhere between a short story and a novel and do not quite fit into either classification. The much touted "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" was one of these, "The Voice of Bugle Ann" by MacKinlay Kantor whom lowans claim with growing pride is a second. Another lowan who is readily making strides someplace is Richard Sherman, erstwhile .Algonion and he has a little book out, "To Mary With Love," which probably a great many of you read in your weekly consumption of all the Curtis publishing company can give you for a nickle on Tuesday. "To Mary With Love" is a sort of sentimental excursion into the not very long ago and its greatest appeal lies in the feling of sincerity which it imparts. "We say 'ten years ago' and it seems a long time," begins Mr. Sherman. "Country Club orchestras played "Valencia,' and 'Moonlight and Roses,' which were new, and 'You Got to See Mama. Every Night 1 and 'No, No, Nora,''which were two seasons old and 'It Ain't Gonna Rain No Mo',' which was perfectly ancient and yet still sort of cute. There was a total eclipse of the sun in Rhode Island and an earthquake in Santa Barbara and a real estate boom in Florida. (Coral Gables, where are you?)" WHAT THE BEST MAN WROTE ABOUT IT Mr. Sherman sets the period for his story in this manner and tells what happened during the 10 years that Mary and Jock were married. Bill Hallam had always been in love with Mary and he was best man at their wedding--it's that sort of a story and it's told in his words. Jock wanted to make' money--lots of it and he did. They were happy until Jock became interested in Kitty Brant, but that didn't last long. It was after their baby had been bom dead that their real unhappiness came. Jock thought of nothing but making money and Mary was busy spending it and neither o£ them really enjoyed much of anything. Mary fell in love with an interior decorator and decided to leave Jock, but just at that moment, the 1929 stock market crash happened and she remained with her husband With his chief interest in life vanished, Jock deteriorated into nothing very interesting. Through Bill's help he was bolstered back to nor- mal'and then Mary decided to leave him. The book is the brief which Bil wrote of the case as Mary's lawyer and sent to her so that she might decide whether or not she really wanted a divorce. It has a good dea of charm and sentiment in its few pages and speaks well for Mr Sherman. ANNE GREEN WRITES ABOUT NEW YORK Anne Green's novels of Americans in Paris have pleased a great many readers and then someone said "Yes. but you couldn't write a book like that about New York." so she did. It's notasgoodas"TheSe!bys' and "Reader. I Married Him." but it's entertaining for the most part. FOREST CITY -- Mrs. Glen Meinecke was Miss Evelyn Beckjorden, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Beckjorden, before her marriage to Glenn Meinecke, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Meinecke of Ventura. Miss Vivian Dean of Mason City and Allen Meinecke, brother of the bridegroom, were attendants at the ceremony, performed by the Rev. C. E. Sharer, pastor of the Calvary Baptist church. The couple will reside in Forest City. 'Winchester House" concerns Agnes, a niece of the house, who decided to escape from the bondage of tier wealthy family. She found employment in "'Ye BookeWorme," working for the very odd Mr. Dove -- who was really no more odd than the other people she came in contact with. She became involved in a fantastic kidnap plot, among other things. The book does not lack for excitement or interest, but for reality.

A Dionnes Will Grow Up to Be Old Maids Says Psychologist HAMILTON, N. Y., L3)--Dr. Donald A. Laird, director of the Colgate university psychological laboratory, expressed belief today the Dionne quintuplets stand a good chance of growing into heart- bieakers--and old maids. Their segregation from other children while very young may make them man haters, he said. "Those guardians are going to have their hands full as the 'quins' grow up," the psychologist said. "The small fortune which each will have accumulated will, of course, be a good marriage lure to selfish, fortune hunting young men. "But the girls are likely to be heart breakers in their own right. They were born prematurely, and it is a general rule for those born while very small to be better looking--the typical doll-faced persons. "For that matter, small babies are usually better looking than large babies, which is one reason why women are better looking than men. Men get started in life with the handicap of being larger babies and, in a way of speaking, having their faces stepped on at birth." Loraine Page. Lunch was served by the guests and gifts were presented to Mrs. McGraw, among them a large birthday cake. Out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Dick McCarthy of Albert Lea, Minn.
