WESTERN BOOK SHELF By DONALD B. THACKREY Uratad Prtss Inhtmafional SAN FKANCISCO CUPI)—The road to rkbes nuy be a iree-j way in zsore ways than one, according to a Laguna Beach, Calil, couple. In the first place it may be so because you can get there faster and with less trouble than you think, ti«ey say. And also one of the best ways to airive at that destination is to own land in or near the path of those erer-Iengthening concrete complexes. The theory is set forth by Leland Frederick Cooley, former foreign correspondent, sports announcer and television writer - producer, and his wife, Lee Morrison Codley, ex-ballerina and choreographer. Weftem Real Estata In a book entifled "The Sm pie Truth About West Land In vestment," recently published by Doubleday & Company, the Cooleys tell their secrets about investing in land west of the Rockies. Of primary importance in their method is the "strip city" theory—that towns become cities, which in turn become metropolises and then turn into what they call "megatoctopus- es" by expanding along highways, freeways and other lines of least resistance. This, they say, gives even he small investor a chance to anticpate development and be in the way when progress ex pands dties outwards. The Cooleys say they pick western laud because of a factor they can "people pressure." This is tied in with the population explosion and means that when then* are more people, they are going to need land to live on. And the American west is building up this "people pres sure" and seems likely to continue ta do so. 'A 'How To' Book The book, in essence a "How to" volume on finding and buying the ri^ land to increase your money, includes 64 pictures, mostly of areas that sold for a song some years ago and couldn't be bought today for all the notes in grand opera. The Cooleys advise caution in land investment and list safeguards against throwing your money onto the ground indiscriminately. But they feel that anyone with the patience to investigate before investing stands a good chance of winding up with extra money. Considering the expansion of "strip cities" and the "people pressure" that is being built up in the west, they say, there is nothing more comforting for security than being squeezed by a "megaloctopus." SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)-The American master o£ the short story, 0. Henry, has been toasted annually for 44 years by Doubleday and Co. in its anthology of the year's best short storits. Culling material £rom a multi- first was published in the spring issue of the Colorado Quarteriy. Third prize wa* awarded to tude of magannes. perio£caIs and library reviewsj editor Rchard Poirier has again assembled an impressive array of American talent, most already ! distinguished \«'riter5. , This year's competition, im ited to .stories published from the winter of ISfiZ to the summer of 1963, was won by John Cheever for "The Embarkment Of Cythera," which originally (appeared in the New Yorker. . Second prize was won by J. |C. Oates for "Stigmata," which (Margaret Shedd, whose story "The Everlasting Witness," was selected from the August, 1363, issue of Encounter. The awards seem almost incidental in light of the anthol ogy's other stories by such authors as Bernard Malamnd, Lillian Boss, Irwin Shaw, Hbrtense Caslisher and Philip Roth. JOSH EPPIN6ER ill, UPl novelist, is the latest in a grow ing Hst of authors to write a pc^tical novel in this presidoi- tial election year. "The Loser," published this month by Doubleday Ic Company, tells of a young country lawyer who is picked by five behind-the-scenes leaders in. a southern state to run- for gov enior—and tose. The young law- jyer, John Bookman, is tapped by these men because thQr feel he can siphon enough, votes SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — from a demagogic formw gov- (Borden Deal, a young southern emor to force 'the former gov- lemor out of the final election. Thiis is not a novel that takes |fl» reader "inside'" a poUficalj campaign and reveals smoke- filled world of the politician. The author apparently is as much a political novice as is bis main character. Bat the book does paint a telling picture of the mood and temperament of the rural south today, and it shows why the tactics of the demagogue are effective-tools in southern poUtics.
