Latest Novel by Betty Smith Once Upon a J Girt W,t Golesburg Register«Moi 1, Gqfcsburg, Friday, Aug. 23, 1963 11. C7 Jimv k(un, JOY IN THE MORNING, by Betty Smith. Harpsf and Row. .308 pages, Perhaps as easy-reading as a novel could be, and with a high degree of interest compulsion, is the new product of Betty Smith, whose previous novel, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn," made her famous. "Joy In the Morning" is a simple and straightforward account of a boy and girl who meet and fall in love in Brooklyn, after which they spend the first year of their marriage in a midwestern university town where Carl Brown is studying law and Annie is coping with growing up, absorbing culture by a sort of mental osmosis, and both are making Welcome Wagon Convenes at Northgate When the general Welcome Wagon meeting was held Thursday evening at Northgate Bowling Lanes, hostesses were Mrs. Gene Turney and Mrs. Charles Skeels. Mrs. Tom Mooty conducted the business meeting at which time Mrs. Martin Schrock and Mrs. Tom Williams were introduced as new members. It was announced that there will be a bridge and pinochle round-robin. Mrs. Mooty announced that Welcome Wagon has been asked to furnish cookies for the Red Cross on Sept. 4. Mrs. Buck Bailey was appointed chairman for this project. Upon the resignation of Mrs. Robert Frank as hostess of Welcome Wagon, Mrs. John Gage and Mrs. Ray Smith have been appointed as co-hostesses for the group. Mrs. Gage was introduced to the members present. After the adjournment of the business meeting a silent auction was held on objects donated by members. Refreshments were then served and the remainder of the evening was spent socially. CARROLL'S OPEN EVERY NIGHT for SCHOOL SUPPLIES in turoo M a a marriage work out just fine against almost impossible odds. Budding writers will be intrigued by the shortcuts the author has devised, depicting character without cumbersome details, and limiting cliches to appropriate places in quoted conversation. Somehow she contrives to be terse without being brusque; the text is all illuminating. and ny. As their first year together, the final year of Carl's law course, and the novel all draw to a close, Miss Smith leaves you with the good feeling that all is well with the young couple and their future prospects. Most people would probably find this story interesting, and the writing style is worth study.—M.H.E. lf\ew (f2oohs **s4*re ~^dded at lite ejClL The following books have been received at the Galesburg Public Library, according to Mrs. Warren Morris, librarian. Adult JOSEPHINE, by Hubert Cole. Napoleon's empress is shown in this new book as a woman of great charm. It traces her meteoric career from Martinique to Paris and then to the post-Revolutionary period at Malmaison. TIMBER AND MEN, by Ralph W. Hidy. The story of the great lumbering company of the Weyer- Are You A Fan? "Tom Swlftles." Paul Pease and Bill McDonough. Published by Tom Swlftles Publishing Co. 62 pages. It's a fascinating mental game, and it can be devastating in the wrong hands. What's this? Why, Tom Swifties. These are the things that originated in Minneapolis, or Chicago, or San Francisco, no one knows for sure. But they stem from the "now returned to fame" Tom Swift books in which the author created a relationship between what was said and how it was said. For instance, "That's a beautiful gown you're wearing," said Tom revealingly, which may be an original for this reviewer. At least it hasn't been spotted anywhere else yet. There is a pretty good collection of them in this new book, plus room at the end to make up some of your own. Here's an example of a couple "grabby" ones in this collection. "I'll see if I can dig it up for you," said Tom gravely, or "You're invited to a big blast at our house," said Tom explosively- It's a better party game than charades, although not quite as good as spin the bottle. It doesn't have the shadow of the "intellectual" cast over it, because salesmen, doctors, homemakers and hoboes beat them to the punch. It's fun. That's why when this book was offered the comment "I'll write the review, said Tom literally," was heard.—RHL Committee Convenes The publicity committee of the Women of the Moose attended a dinner meeting Wednesday evening at the Holiday Inn. After dinner the group went to the home of Mrs. Ella Angel, 755 Peck St., to play cards. The next meeting will be Sept. 18 at the home of Mrs. Ray Van Hyning, 63 E. Mary, at which time plans will be made for the coming year. For the Children's Bookshelf Jire and a Quarrei s$re tit ire WILDFIR3 Evans G. Valens, illustrated by Clement Hurd. World Publishing. While a forest fire is a terrifying and destructive thing, it also possesses a certain amount of beauty and majesty. Wildfire tells of the growth of such a forest fire. The forest is quiet and peaceful when the sky begins to darken. Many people look toward the sky with anticipation because it has been a hot, dry summer. Art Buying Is High-Stake Game AUCTION! By James Brough. Bobbs Merrill. Anyone interested in art and art objects will find Brough's book a lively account of auctions, auction houses and auction fever. There also is a bonus. For the author has strung together a gossipy collection of stories about some modern collectors, some art finds and art thefts, art faking and the backstage rivalries of dealers, collectors and museum officials. There are illuminating passages devoted to three of the world's foremost auction houses — Parke- Bernet in New York and Sotheby's and Christie's in London. To the interested beginner, this book can be a thorough introduction to the joys and perils of buying and bidding, a gallery of color snapshots of personalities in the trade, and a compendium of recent news in the art world, including many of the big sales. Brough does not hesitate to report, on his own authority, some of the juicier aspects of his subject, and perhaps many of the yarns cannot be verified. But we cannot fault him on that score, for he is operating in a field long notorious for its similarity to a tight-lipped poker game for high stakes. He has collected some fascinating material in these pages. Miles A. Smith CLUB CARD PARTIES LAKE BRACKEN First, second and third place were won by Mrs. H. C.

This fall when some three million school children participate in an annual Trick-or-Treat fundraising drive this year, it is expected that many of the youngsters will be dressed according to pages in the book, and that they will attend Hallowe'en parties in these costumes. The book has been selected by the U.S. Information Agency for distribution in 140 countries. The book sells for 50 cents and all profits from its sale go to aid needy children throughout the world through the facilities of the United Nations Children's Fund. Vegetable Glamour Treatment A simple sauce you can mix in minutes is all it takes to turn vegetables into mealtime stars. Served with this sauce, asparagus or artichokes are truly elegant party fare. But what the sauce does for everyday vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower must be tasted to be believed. The sauce takes its smooth texture from mayonnaise and its spirited flavor from sliced, stuffed olives. It's easy to mix at the last ^JopicA Clouds hang ominously low when lightning hurtles toward the ground, striking a stately fir tree. At first the tiny arrow of embers seemed doomed to die, but a fresh breeze fans them into life. First a tiny pine cone explodes in a puff of flame, and then another and another. Soon the fire is leaping from tree to tree, swallowing everything that comes into its path. At first the animals are attracted by the strange noises and sights, but their curiosity turns to terror as they feel the heat and sense the danger of the fire. The forest becomes crowded with animals, small and large, as they seek refuge from this new menace. A hungry mountain lion and a deer meet face to face, but they are so interested in escaping the licking flames of the oncoming fire, that their first thought is only their mutual safety.
