Rose Tremaln narrates those 70 years of struggle, bringing to life such famous people as Mary Wollstonecraft, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan Anthony and such lesser known people as Emily Wilding Davison, Carrie Chapman Catt and Mrs. Emme- Une Pankhurst. This is the first history of the movement to parallel the struggle between England and the United States, £ struggle being carried on slmul taneously by the educated, mid die and upper class women of both countries. The authors narration Is accompanied by 140 photographs, sketches, reprints of documents, and cartoons, selected from the archives of libraries, museums and leading newspapers. These photographs, which visualize leading suffragettes, male supporters, oppressed women, mocking cartoons, famous women's rights meetings — all the memorabilia necessary to recreate the experience of worn an's struggle to be free. The large format of the paperback (5&"x8") gives an added dimension to the photographs "The Fight for Freedom for Women" discusses the politics involved in the struggle, the in temal factors that delayed stle cess, the external events that diverted interest from the movement, and the techniques women used to achieve their goal. Disappointed with the results of peaceful means, women finally resorted to more violent and visible means: smashing windows in government offices, disrupting political meetings, carrying on hunger strikes while in prison, and even bombing arid martyrdom for the cause. These techniques were forerunners of the methods used in demonstrations today Girls 10 to 18 Vacation Sewing Classes 8-2V 4 hr. lessons, 17.50 (only 980 hr.)

GALESBURG 343-5019 pub,, Hnrpet and Row Ine Janey it's lowdy alt day long since you moved away ... As a little girl walks home from school on a soft autumn day, she recalls all the special things about her friend Janey and the things they enjoyed together. Once they even gave each other tine same book for Christmas. With simplicity, and peroeptiveness, Charlotte Zolo* tow evokes the special feeling of loss when a fdond moves away, and Ronald Htmmler's warm three-color illustrations tenderly interpret the text. Charlotte Zolotow is the well- known author of over fifty picture books, Including "William's Doll," which was set to music for the record "Free To Be ... You and Me." She lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. Ronald Him/mler illustrated "Bunk Beds" by Elizabeth Winthrop and "Baby" by Fran Manuislhkin, among others.

After a series of tests, Pip Squeak managed to see the Great Gorgon. What haf>pencd next is surprising. But Sir Pip Squeak lived up to his title, Knight of the Kitchen Table. This is an enchanting tale which should delight any youngster. Not only that, it does have a (moral, that people should help others. A. L. B day book for children; since they could act out the story. A. L. B. The Junior Shelf "Sweetwater" by Laurence Yep, pictures by Julia Noonan; pub., Harper and Row Inc.; ages 10 up. ,. On the faraway planet Harmony, a colony of Earth, the descendents of early starship pilots chose to live in the crumbling, water-logged city of Old Sion. Rejecting the materialism and technology of" the affluent Mainlanders, they patiently wrested survival from the terrible and wonderful sea. The boy Tyree, son of the Captain of the community, loved music as much as he loved his city. Secretly he visited forbidden Sheol, inhabited only by the alien Argans, and persuaded their leader, Amadeus, a great songmaster, to teach him. But Amadeus also gave an awesome treasure, to Tyree's blind sister -f a gift which kindled the fears of Tyree's people. And it was fear — of the enormous Seadragon, invading hydras and flooding waters — as well as a mainland tycoon's attempts to make Old Sion a tourist attraction, which finally tore Tyree's community apart. About this haunting story of a boy and his people and their valiant attempt to save their way of life, science fiction writer Andre Norton says: "Extremely competent handling of alien background plus, excellent characterization. I recommend this highly." Laurence Yep is working on his doctorate in English at the State University of New York at. Buffalo. He is author of science fiction stories which have appeared in If magazine and in numerous anthologies, including "The World's Best Science Fiction, 1969." Born in San Francisco and a graduate of the University of California at Santa Cruz, he now divides his time between Buffalo and his home in Sunnyvale, Calif. Julia Noonan, who was graduated with honors from New York's Pratt Institute, is author- artist of the- picture book "The Best Thing To Be." "I'm Doing on a Bear Hunt," by Sandra stroner Slvullch, pub., D. P. Dutton; ages 4-8. "I'm Going on a Bear Hunt' is the imaginative taiiie of a little boy who starts a big adventure — 'looking for a bear — which really tests his bravery. The author, a Ubrairian storyteller, has told the story to hundreds of people, and she de cided it might be welcomed as a book. She is a lecturer in children's literature at Mercy- hurst College, Erie, Penn. The book was illustrated by Gl^en Rounds, an artist and author who lives in Southern Pines, N. C. "I'm. Going on a Bear Hunt' should be fascinating to youngsters, since directions are included iar appropriate sound effects, ( which heightens the in terest in the action. This would be a good rainy "Girl* Can Be Anything," by Norma Klein, illustrated by Roy Doty; pub., E. P. Dutton, ages, 4-fl. "Girls are always nurses and boys are always doctors," little Atiam Sobel told his friend, Marina. But Marina wanted to be the doctor. And the airline pilot, not the stewardess. And lots of other things girls were not supposed to be, according to Adam. Hciw he learned) differently makes a very good story, with droll pictures that add to the fun. The idea behind the book, of course, is that girls should not be sterotyped iat an early age into thinking they can be only nurses, stewardesses or housewives. While this is an excelta concept, it would seam, that this book was written more for parents than children ages four through six. A. L.
