look's ike %>xl&e5l Ok fc* Writing," Edited by Norman Thomas dl Giovanni, Ddnl«l H«l «6rn. and frank Maci ShaAej pub., ft. p. Dutton & Co. Inc. What could be more fascinating for an aspiring young writer than an "inside" look at how Jorge Luis Borges, one of the world's great contemporary masters, goes about putting together one of his stories? Right, a personal interview! But if "Borges on Writing" is not that, it comes close, The book is an account of a seminar on writing and translating that Borges and his translator, Norman Thomas di Giovanni, gave in 1971 to students in the Columbia University graduate writing program. It is edited by Di Giovanni; Daniel Halpem, a poet and editor of Antaeus magazine, and Frank MacShane, director of the Columbia writing program. •, It works like this: Di Giovanni reads one of Borges' brilliant gems of fiction — in this case "The find of the Duel," Which tells the tale of two rival Argentine gauchos who live the last grim moments of their lives in a foot race after having had their throats slit — then re-reads the story sentence by sentence allowing Borges time to comment after each passage. Students of writing will remain spellbound listening to the wry and witty comments emi- nating from the great Argentine storyteller. But they will soon discover that even Jorge Luis Borges, with all his finesse, is human, just like everybody else — maybe even more so. An amusing aspect of the book reveals itself when Borges talks about the various passages of "The End of the Duel" Some sentences which appear to carry all the import in the world are explained away by the author in terms of convenience or ex* ped> On the other hand, seemingly simple, straightforward passages prove to be deceptively simple as Borges sees in them the greatest of philosophical meaning, . The second and third sections of the book carry yet more treats for the Borges fan, being discussions on his poetry and the difficult business Of translating. The latter section in particular should intrigue readers who have at least a passing knowledge of Spanish, the language Borges writes in. Di Giovanni and Borges analyze several samples of the author's work, line by line, explaining problems they encountered, white translating into the English. Di Giovanni, of course, is a master at translating but he gets more than a little help Announce Daughter's Engagement TOULON - Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Drury of Minnetonka, Minn., announce the engagement of their daughter, Becky Lynn, to Carl Clayborn Ham, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Ham, 304 N.

Trio Dram W A Patriot Of 'Planet* , "Only a Little Planet" (Withy David R. Bfower; lines by Lawrence Collins, photographs by Martin Schweitzer; pub., Friends of the Earth/Ballantlne Book. The editor, the writer and the protographer have taken the lines by Robinson Jetfere, "It is only a little planet but how beautiful it is," as the subject for their book. Item these few words has grown one of the most attractive books, I've seen in a long time. As noted by Mr. Brewer it is hard to tell whkh is the melody and which is harmony, the words or the photos. The reading is not prolific, but still conveys the thought. While most of the photos are details cither by design or happenstance, they still tell the whole story. Friends of the Earth in the United States, and sister organizations of the same names in other countries, are working for the preservation, restoration and more rational use «of the earth. Part of this is done through the publication of such books as "Only a little Planet." —IEB Keep the flower sifter in a plastic bag.

And now Rich was a flying member of the Tompkins international Air Show, dazzling the crowds with chandelle, inside loop, snap roty, dive and hammerhead stall. But Rich knew that times were bad for Tommy Tompkins' air show. People were more interested in jet and space travel these days. Rich 1 tried to think about a career, but he really just wanted to be the best stunt flier around. How Rich is able to solye this conflict, and also get Tommy to accept his decision, is part of an engrossing story of dare devil fliers who are also warm and understanding human be ings.
