Berkely Mather says in the foreword of his book that he is "convinced that certain hippy elements arc being used by well-organized syndicates to smuggle basic drugs in large quantities from the Far East to Marseilles." Using this as a premise, he has written an up- r ' dated cops and robbers story that attempts to cash in on a contemporary theme. A "snowline" is the smuggling route for base morphine. The drug is carried by bands Of hippies, organized by Indian and Italian crime syndicates. Idwall Recs, an Indian agent, is assigned to work on breaking the ring with British police. He is a combination 5 James Bond-Charlie Chan who tjUilltOtt 8 beats villains to a pulp at the « » j drop of a brass knuckle and MxCVlSCft^ spouts oriental philosophy. He and his faithful servant, Sa- UllUirgeil faraz, wander through the underworld of India, solving a series of murders. They come to the end of their search for the drug ringleaders on a small island off the coast of Africa. Mather has included almost every stereotype common to British mysteries. The central character, Rees, is a superman who keeps his cool at all times. He is hindered in his search for wrongdoers by the ever-present bumbling Scotland Yard man who always manages to let a key suspect get away or be found dead in a dark alley. Hippies are pictured as degenerates who steal from beggars and who keep large amounts of drugs stashed in their, knapsacks. It is easy to feel the undertone of resentment against the hippy culture. The author has a more subtle dislike for Indians. They are represented either as stupid.beggars who grovel for garbage or cunning masterminds of the underworld. The author's use of Sabu-like dialogue .in an attempt to represent Indian speech is ludicrous. This book rambles on for pages with pointless descriptive matter and what plotline there is becomes lost in its twists and turns. The book does give a vivid .picture of the squalor of the slums of India and the millions of refu- The Man Who Saw Through Time, a stimulating introduction to Francis Bacon and his relevancy for the modern world, was written by the distinguished anthropologist and historian of science, Loren Eiseley. It is a penetrating book Which seeks to do jus '.ree to Francis Bacon's real vision of the future that might be awaiting humanity. It is a revised and enlarged edition of "Francis Bacon and the Modern Dilemma," published in 1962. , Francis Bacon, writes Loren Eiseley in, his new preface,, "was truly a man for the ages and his insight soars beyond us still." Not only does Bacon share with Shakespeare pre-enninence in the field of Elizabethan letters, he was also a scientific statesman and seer who discerned mare- cleanly than any other of his great contemporaries the fact that Mian, in the powers of his intellect, bad the possibility of bringing into existence "a second worid." . Loren Eiseley is Benjamin Franklin Professor of Anthropology and the History of Science at .(he University of Pennsylvania.

This was the year Alice Rogers knew she just had to go to boarding school, and she must persuade her parents — with cunning, of course — to send her. Boarding school, Alice was sure, would be exactly like a Katherine Pepburn movie — rolling lawns, laughing girls, good fellowship — and it would give her the gloss of her favorite star. While Southeby Hall did not turn out to have the glam or Alice had envisaged, Wendy, a poised and charming senior, did. Alice idolized Wendy. And surely Wendy would be' her sponsor at Spread, the time-honored school event of the year. Trying to impress, Alice went too far. She dyed her hair, and it turned an awful orange. She led a raid on the kitchen for pies, but her joke became a cause celebre with the Student Government Council. As for beloved Wendy, when it came to admitting complicity in Alice's madcap pranks, she welched. Hurt, and to save face with the other girls, Alice told elaborate stories about her love life ("borrowed" from a sophisticated girl friend in New York), She also bluffed her way out c-f attending Spread, since Wendy would not sponsor her. But miraculously Alice found herself on a blind date with a real Dartmouth" boy, who seemed to accept her just being herself. This first novel is a numerous yet touching portrait of an imaginative, insecure teenager who finally begins to separate fantasy from reality — just a little.

The Un- Soangetaha Will Host Guest Day ent of spinning a really good spooky yarn. While readers of an earlier era were familiar with Miss Wharton's works, the re-issue of her stories will give members of the younger generation a chance to become familiar with them. Beginning the tale "The Lady's Maid's Bell," the collection concludes with "All Souls," which was written in 1937 — the year of the author's death. Miss Wharton gives each of her stories the ring of authenticity both in mood and setting. Several of the tales have a setting of the lonely English moors which lend themselves so well to ghost stories, and others have an American setting. One of our favorites among the collection was "Korfol" which tells the tale of a young bride who is often left alone by her aging husband, Her only companionship comes from a small dog that is a gift of her husband. She lavishes the attention she might have given a child on the animal until her husband suspects her of infidelity and strangles the dog as punishment. Although she acquires other dogs, each meets the same fate . . . until the ghosts of the dogs fall upon the head of the household and kill him. Edith Wharton is recognized by persons in the field as one of the modern masters of the ghost story. Included in the book are several paragraphs from her autobiography which detail her childhood fear of ghosts — undoubtedly an influence on her later writings and the skill which she weaves a mood. —N,C.
