jHnAY.^FEBRUARY 26, 1932 THE BOOK SURVEY "Memoirs of a Soldier of Fotinac" ^ opened, and there's a death-bed Brings Some of Talkst Talcs confession. Til? remarks tint viero Told in a IIIK Muon— And They .Make a Very InUrctHnj Hook- Sir Oliver Lodge Oilers Slory ol Early Life anil Carter BY UIIUCK OATl'ON .SKA Service WrlU-r A, collection of lull • Isles Is always worth rending, whether the talcs are strictly veracious or not, provided only (hut they are lull enough; and for thai reason I commend to your attention the book. "Memoirs of n Soldier or fortune." by General Rafael <lc N'cGHlcE, published by Harrison Smith, Tut 1 ., at $4. These yarns are surely the lull- esl that anyone has told In a blue mojn. They may b3 true nnd they may not—I have no way ot finding out; bin they are certainly Interesting. General Nogaics got his start figlilini; In Soulli 'American revolutions. Then he tcok a turn h\ the Spanish-American War, went to fort Arlliur to mix in [lie Russo- Japan:se affair. Iricd his hand :\{ caulc-mslling along the Mexican border, Irad a part in the Mexican revolution, returned (a fight, tome more in South America, went, to Europe and served with distinction as a Turkish olflcer in the World War, fought in Central and South America again—and so on, year after year, getting Into enough hair-raising adventures to satisfy a dozen men. He writes of it, fluently and cn- tcrlnininjjty; and if Ills yarns tux your credulity at times — well, they're interesting anyhow, so why worry? I think this book will keep you up nights. • • « r.clfinjf .Acquainted Widi ^Sir Oliver Lodge "Past Years" is Sir Oliver Lodge's story of his life, and downright readable It is. too. The famous scientist traces Ins career in a garrulous, friendly way that, wins your liking instantly. It is Interesting to study his development as a physicist; his boyish work in a home-made laboratory, his desperate struggles to gel. an education, his resistance to his father's efforts to make a business man out. of him; and his book provides an excellent means of getting acquainted with one of Hie foremost scientists of the day. Tiie ordinary reader, probably, will be chiefly interested in those chapters In which Sir Oliver de- Fcrlbes his psychical researches. 'Iheyrc worth examining. The steps by which a cool-headed scientist, was led to believe wholeheartedly -in human survival, beyond thn- grnvc arc objectively recounted in this book, and while they probably won't convert you, you won't, find (hem (li c sort of thing (hat can be laughed off easily. "Past Years" is published by Scribners, and is priced at $3.50. » • • A Very Gcwl Account Of a Sea Voyage A. truly admirable book of (lie sea is Hcinrich Hauscr's "Fair Winds and Foul" — the account, by a German novelist., of a Hip made recently from Germany to Chile in a square-rigged sailing vessel. This ship, the "Pamir," took 110 days to make the trip, rounding Cape Horn amid violent tlcrms and experiencing all of the traditional hardships and mis- chances of (he old days. Hcrr Hauler writes about them very ably, lie expresses the peculiar beauty and majesty of the sailing ship; but, he ako makes abundantly clear (he terrible price that the :<-.iling ship exacted from the men who manned iicr. and he most decidedly is not simply a romantic sighing for the glories of a dying era. If you like books nlmil Hie sea, you v.ill prize this one highly. It. is. by the way, illustrated with .1 number of very good photographs. "Fair Winds and Foul" is published by Li\eright, and sells for $2.50. Som c My.-.lcry Yarns— I)o(h Good and liad It becomes necessary no;v to deal with a few of the recent mystery noicis. A few you might like to know about arc the following: "The Floating Admiral," by a whole hcst of English writers (Crime Club; S2>. Such people as G. K. Chesterton, Again Christie, Anthony- Berkeley and a tot of others united to produce this yarn of a murdered admiral who was found adrift In a rj s • beat. It was conceived as a stunt—each writer did one cha;. Icr and had to guess at what the previous writers had in mind but it makes a rattling good rnys lery yarn. "Mulder in the House of Commons" by Mary Agues Hamilton <Hoiighlon, Miltlin; $2). A high class story for the -literate reader all about the lady who was thro',- llcd on the terrace of Ihc House of Commons during an all-night session of the lav-makers. It moves a bit slowly, but it's very nicely handled. "The Sword in th<.
