Main St. for Fine Dinnerware $1 Down - $1 Week n ina in First Concert Nov. 4 1 Natalie Bodanya . THE PAPER BOATS, ttoter Longrigg. Harper Se Row, 279 PP. Marshfield Hall must have been lovely at one time, but now it was just run-down and seedy. Its drive was overgrown with weeds and the trees lining it were scraggly and worn-out. The residents of the Hall fit info the same general pattern. They were mostly people who had seen better times, but were trying to keep up some pretence of what once had been. The residents included widowed Mrs. Maynard, very ladylike, and her widowed sister, very ladylike, too; Professor Boxer and his three overgrown, overaged spinster daughters who adored their adoring father; and Heather and Douglas Oswald, who lied bravely to each other when at mealtime the food was scarce. Marshfield Hall was also the home of Gregory Pratt and his father. Gregory's father was elderly, kindly, honest and distinguished, and did the housework while Gregory went off on a train he hated to a job he detested. Gregory's one diversion in life, aside from the mental jibes he made at his fellow passengers, was the detective novel he was writing. The only time he allotted himself for his work was during the hated train ride. He had been working pn his masterpiece for four years, nut he was having a little difficulty — he was stuck on page seventy-five. One day as Gregory was on his way home from work, a pleasant little man entered his compartment and left a bundle. Gregory took the bundle home, meaning to try to find the little man or turn it over to the stationmaster. He quite forgot the bundle for several days, and when he opened it he was startled, to say the least, to discover nearly three hundred thousand dollars in cash.

He had always, as long as he could remember, been short of money. You can imagine what it must feel like to suddenly find yourself in possession of all that beautiful green stuff. The adventures that confront Gregory are numerous and hilarious, indeed, and not the least of these is a lady With very pretty knees. The Paper Boats is a funny novel, and yet it is heart-warming. The characters which inhabit its pages are as real as your next-door neighbors and provide many solid hours of reading enjoyment. — N. C.
