TELL ME ANOTHER MORNING By Zdena Berber Harper & Brothers $3.95 This is a beautifully told story of THE MOZART LEAVES AT NINE By Harris Greene Doubleday & Co. $4.50 449 pp. The "Mozart" (in this case being the name of a train), is Harris Greene's novel of postwar, occupied Austria. It is a good, straight Army story, full of sharply delineated characters who speak sharply credible dialogue. The tale turns on somewhat of the same conflict which vitalized Wouk's "The Caine Mutiny," the battle between duty and honor, between orders and i a young girl growing to woman-conscience, although it lacks the h o o d in Hitler's concentration single-minded searching of that ' camps and finding her own way to work. j survival with integrity.

There arc the spying and harassment of the local Russian Mission. And there is the inevitable discord between the high command from Vienna and the difficulties of daily administration in Salzburg. The book is intriguing and well-executed, particularly where the nuances of power struggle in the Army and the clutter and excitement of Army life abroad are concerned. BURNT OFFERING By David Spicrhandler Maemillan Co. $3.95 248 pp. The word is out that if you liked Exodus und admire Ernest Hemingway, you should read Burnt Offering, an exciting novel of modern-day Israel. The story concerns itself with an idealistic Brooklyn Jew and an American Catholic explosives expert w ho join forces with an embittered Israeli commander in a desperate fight to save the latter's kibbutz from the Arabs. It is high-spirited adventure intermixed with entrancing drama. SO IT WAS JCST A SIMPLE WEDDING By Sara Kasdan The Vanguard Press $3.95 249 pp. His grin was world famous, and every schoolboy knows he once said. "Speak softly, and carry a big stick." Hut beyond that, Theodore Roosevelt has remained a major enigma, his entire life marked by enormous psychological and political contradictions. He has been denounced as a dangerous authoritarian, dismissed as a noisy buffoon, and praised as a progressive, scientific intellectual. He has been claimed as a "personal" hero by both arch-conservatives and radical social reformers, by interventionists and isolationists, by clergymen and big-game hunters. But now, Mr. Harbaugh. distinguished American historian, goes behind the flashing grin, and takes the full measure of the man public and private. His controversial book is a complete reappraisal of TR ... his formative years ... his meteoric rise from police commissioner to president . . . his petty feuds and his epochal battles.

McNamara to discharge Schuyler Ferris, holder of a strategic U. S. Army civilian position, because of charges that Ferris provided the American Nazi party with its "hate bus" and otherwise aided George Rockwell's movement. Rep. Seymour Halpern, New York Republican, cited information about Ferris, an employee of the U. S. Army Map Service, and wrote McNamara he was "perplexed that such an individual has classified access to the army's secret maps. I do not understand how the U. S. Government can jus- an inventor. EVERYBODY KNOWS Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. You've read about him and have seen moving pictures about him. He was a great man. But the telephone Bell invented was not a very practical thing. It transmitted sound all right, it fiirly reeked with sound, but you had to be very alert, to make out what the words were. Bell had made a good transmitter, but the receiver was woefully inadequate. It was Emile Berliner, who suDplied the missing link. made by him about the Germans during the first World War. He recalled that the thing he liked best about the Prussian military was the intelligent look on their horses. He couldn't say as much for those i riding the horses. He urged that the German expression, "Gesund-heit," said when someone sneezed, be changed to Liberty. for a "Crusade for Christ" in the i ,. c-sscnllally alter exploration and Jewish State discussion, the Billy Graham group in "What ak . t 10.1 ,ueciuea xnai in Israel A fresh leaHini? rttl hv b breakthrough in the centuries-old iw2J tlCle y eV Graham's hostility between Jew and Chris- hh'1irVrt,1f nite historical possi- LONDON (JTA) B.

But "the Christian cannot come to the Jew as he comes to the atheist, agnostic or adherent of another faith. Whatever the Shy-locks and the Eichmanns of the world may have felt, a warm spiritual bond has persisted between devout Jew and devout Christian, based on common devotion to the word or uod in the Old Testament. According to conclusions drawn: "After this short span of freedom, words are coming out of Israel that in a sense have not been spoken for centuries. They are friendly words.

It won't be the ac tress best suited to play Fanny but the one who will draw at the box-office. Best example of this was Roz Russell who got the nod over Gertrude Berg to play the lead in "Majority of One." Without a doubt. Miss Berg was the logical choice, but she lost out in the casting when admittedly she was too weak in the boxoffice draw department. But don't think for a minute that Roz Russell won't be great, because she will be. MADELINE RIIUE, as you may have heard, suftered severe facial injuries in an auto accident.

Wirt, Rev. Gra-; ham's editor, described a recent j visit to Israel. He said "every-! where we traveled in Israel . . . we found the same remarkable phenomenon: The Israeli is ready i to talk to the Christian. He will speak of the Messiah. He will! even speak of Jesus of Nazareth. Thrilled as he is at the unbeliev-i able turn of events that brought ' into being the State of Israel, he j is nevertheless aware that some-1 thing is missing in his life." I Mr. Wirt emphasized that "this 1 is not to say that the Israeli is ready for a visit from a mission- j ary. Quite the reverse is true; ; missionaries in Israel are having trouble renewing their visas these days." Nevertheless, Christian mission-I aries in Israel "are quite aware of i a changed relationship." Mission- i aries, "performing a magnificent1 work," don't like the word "mis- sions." Madison Avenue termin-! ology is considered in view of the i task. The Rev. Dwight Baker, head ! of Southern Baptist Mission in the ! Galilee area, reported that "We feel the country needs us. Without us Israel would become a ghetto of the Middle East." individual so unstable politically that he fecilitates totalitarian extremism and propaganda activities, whether Nazi, Fascist, or Communist," the Congressmen wrote. Defense Department sources commented only that the Ferris case was "under study" by appropriate agencies. When Arlington, Va., police a few days ago impounded the Nazi "hate bus" it was found that the vehicle was registered in the name of Ferris who was previously linked with Rock-wellite agitation. Bill to Ban Neo-Fascist Group Backed by Italians FLORENCE (JTA) A resolution supporting a bill pending in Parliament for the last year, calling for the dissolution of the neo-fascist Movimento Sociale Italiano, was adopted here at a meeting called to analyze the resurgence of fascist movements in Italy. To refrain from sinful action is itself a religious act. Huna m a m I I REXALL Willis18 S700 N. MUKKAY AYKN17I rtltewtod -77 W Call For wd DeltTer Tour Pr. cripUon at No Addition!
