Eight, stories have been collected here, and every one of them possesses the unusual quality of sending echoes through your mind. In subject matter they vary considerably. The title piece is about a young college professor who suddenly discovers that he is too snugly and smugly situated for his own good. The final story, a magical evocation of nature, is about a middle- aged man who. having lost his wife, takes a long trip back into the serenity of a remote woods on a mountain. In between there are stories about college boys, a pair of old men in a store of many years ago, and a group of characters who undergo some unusual psychological adventures at a ski resort. One Story, "The Orphan's Wife," set partly in Iowa and partly in Paris, is a revealing installment in the war between the sexes. And several times in this collection the author explores the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children — in those moments when the bruises and abrasions of mundane existence prove too much. In short, Williams writes about what goes on inside people. His tales are not for small boys or fluttery females. Sometimes he leaves it to the reader to figure out the significance of what his characters are thinking and feeling. But make no mistake about it — the thoughts and feelings are there, clearly and vividly set forth. On the jacket, the author is quoted as saying these stories are about "the conflict in man between his violence and his gentleness." This is William's fourth book. If you haven't yet discovered this young man's remarkable talent, it is high time to do so now. He is a master. Miles A. Smith Men Resist Spectacles By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Newsfeatures Writer NEW YORK 7P-Despite so- called feminine vanity, men are most likely to demur about putting on spectacles, for their deep-rooted ideas of virility are involved. Men associate masculinity with the vision of a hawk, says August A. Nelson, who has been studying the subject for some time. They could not fathom their rugged heroes, Daniel Boone or Bill Cody, in glasses. Is it any wonder that they subconsciously resent the prospect for themselves? Worse, men suffer in silence, Nelson asserts, for men are severely conditioned not to show their weaknesses. Women on the other hand fuss more, but fussing is a part of their ability to adjust quickly to this or any emotional problem. This much healthier tendency to let off steam and then relent partially accounts for the fact that 57 per cent of females wear glasses contrasted to the 45 per cent among men. Women live longer, and this justifies the statistics somewhat, but not enough since there is no physical difference in eyes of men or women. As executive secretary of a non-profit public education organization, Better Vision Institute, Nelson is hopeful that all people will face up to the fact that once they're over 45 their sight is likely to become impaired, or curtailed. Makes Impression Fortunately, a recent popular- ization of the egghead, stereotyped as bespectacled, has helped men to adapt, he says. Indeed, the image has been sold so successfully that frames without prescription glass are often sold to lawyers who like to punctuate their arguments by taking them on and off, or waving them around. Minus glasses himself, haz- eled-eyed, sandy-haired Nelson isn't trying to sell glasses or frames. His chief task is to prod people, into looking after their eyes. He worries about perfunctory eye examinations in public schools. "Twenty to 30 per cent of young school children can't see well enough to work well." Ounce of Prevention He frets about the poor light in which women do their household chores. "They can become irritable, hard to live with." Most of all he broods over the sneakiness of many eye diseases. "Of the 30,000 cases of blindness every year, half are unneccessary." The most dangerous sneak thief of all is glaucoma. "Two per cent of all people 40 have glaucoma and don't even know it. In the early stages, when it could be caught and cured, the victim isn't aware of the symptoms." If Nelson has to scare people to jar them out of their reluctance, subconscious or conscious, to check up on their eyes, or to wear glasses once they're told to, that's all right with him. The seriousness of the matter scares him, too. By MARY SUE MILLER The sun is a friend to your beauty, when you partake of its goodness in small amounts. Otherwise it becomes your enemy. The pain of a burn is the least of the consequences. Dryness, wrinkles and aging are hastened by too much sun. Doctors report that serious skin disorders are triggered by burning. Why chance any of those disasters? Surely not for the sake of a quick tan! To benefit your health and looks, tanning must be a gradual process and be accompanied by safeguarding sun lotions and creams. The best of them are non-greasy and formulated with emollients or moisturizers. After that, performance varies to suit individual needs—the amount of sun your skin can take. For hardy skin, there are lotions that woo a fast, yet safe tan. To coddle and prevent dry skin, products necessarily take a slower approach. Some of them are tinted, so that you look tan while you tan. A third type aims to pamper supersensitive .skin via deep filters, or else with blocks that shut out sun rays altogether. For the nose that has always worn a nose guard, the new trick is a completely invisible protector. Applications let you discard the guard and look really snootie for a change! Obviously, by using a sunscreen that's right for you, you would make an ally of Old Sol. As a result, you'd come to feel great and look your greatest! The Eyes of Youth You are not lost to youthful beauty because of dark circles, puffiness, or wrinkles around the eyes. These problems can be brought under control by proper skin care, cosmetic applications, health habits and facial expressions Methods are detailed in my leaflet, "The Eyes of Youth."

A little celery salt added to potato salad perks up that old perennial. By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor When we were young we knew summertime had really arrived when boiled dressing began to be made in larger than usual quantities. Golden from egg yolks, smooth and unctuous from butter and what was called "i-ich" milk, tangy with vinegar and sweet with sugar, this old-fashioned salad dressing was used in many ways. It brightened summer's best salads—those simple concoctions of potatoes, green cabbage, or garden lettuce and sliced ripe-red tomatoes. It was literally poured over sliced hard-cooked eggs that were coupled with cooked asparagus or snap beans and strips of pimiento to make a colorful and delicious warm- weather luncheon plate. It made the stuffing for "deviled" eggs wonderfully agreeable. Streamlined for 1963, its flavor is as old-time as ever. Whole eggs (instead of numerous egg yolks) go in, and butter is omitted. Prepared yellow mustard (instead of dry mustard) fives striking color and excellent flavor. Water (instead of milk) is used for the liquid but the dressing's texture does not suffer. Try the dressing, first, in this colorful slaw to serve with summer's cold meats. Then use it in some of the other old-fashioned ways we've suggested. Coleslaw With Boiled Dressing 1 small green cabbage (about 1 pound). % cup minced (1 small) onion Vz cup thinly sliced celery crescents V* cup slivered green pepper %. cup grated (1 small) carrot 1 can or jar (4 oz) pimientos, drained and chopped Boiled dressing. Salt and pepper. Finely shred cabbage to make 4 or 5 packed-down cups. Add onion, celery, green pepper, carrot, and pimientos. Pour over about 1 cup of the boiled dressing and mix well with two forks; add salt and pepper to taste, and more dressing if desired. Serve at once or cover and refrigerate. Makes about eight servings. Boiled Dressing 2 tablespoons flour 3 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard. 1 cup water 2 eggs % cup cider vinegar In the top of a double boiler stir together the flour, sugar and salt; add mustard; gradually stir in water, keeping smooth. Cook and stir constantly over hot (not boiling) water until mixture looks like a thin white sauce. Beat eggs slightly, then gradually stir in vinegar and about half of the mixture. Stir this slowly into the hot mixture remaining in double boiler. Continue to cook and stir over hot water until mixture mounds slightly when dropped back from a spoon. Cool. Cover aand chill. Makes 1V& to 1% cups dressing.

Ann Landers Closed Mouth Policy Best Ann Landers. DEAR ANN: At first I just smoldered when my "friend" pretended to be a little high. Liquor is supposed to excuse all those cute passes at my husband. Now I'm in flames. This has been /< going on for some time but A I've hated to let |\; anyone know how it infuriates me. After last Saturday night I think perhaps I should tell the bimbo off. After a few martinis, this so-called social register dame jumped on my husband's lap, fell into his arms, and invited him to crawl behind the sofa with her in search of an earring. All this under the guise of being loaded, of course. In the meantime she could drink any truck driver under the table. I am fed up on the whole disgusting business but I need a more level head than mine to decide what to do about it. —FIRE IN WHITE PLAINS DEAR FIRE: This "Don't blame me, I'm drunk" routine is as old as the grape. It's always a mistake to tell another woman to leave your husband alone. It usually encourages the wench. She'll figure you are frightfully insecure and decide that maybe she does have a chance, after all. Wildly aggressive females who throw themselves at men look cheap. If the wife can handle the situation with dignity this kind of character will look even cheaper. Keep your head up and your mouth closed. * * * * DEAR ANN: I work in an office where all the girls get along pretty well. Two of these girls told me they did not want to open up charge accounts because they were afraid they'd be tempted to spend more money than they should. So they asked if they could charge on my account. They promised to have the money in my hands by the time the bill came due. For the first couple of months it worked fine. They paid as promised. But for the past four months I've had nothing but trouble. One girl "forgets" what she bought and I have to track down sales slips to prove it was her purchase and not mine. you re invited . . . ... to preview our entire full collection of fall Douglas Marc knit separates, skirts and sweaters personally presented by Mr. Douglas Marc Saturday, 11 A.M. Thru 5 P.M. June 29 *:«** roR wouiui The other girl is always broke. Now she owes me for articles she charged in March. If I tell them they can't use my account any more it will break up our friendship. Please tell me what to do. — SUPER-CHARGED DEAR SUPER: Tell both girls you are closing your charge account—and then go ahead and do it. When you re-open the account it's not necessary to broadcast the information. Should they learn of it and ask again to use your account tell them it would be less complicated if they saved the money and paid cash. * * * * DEAR ANN: What do you think of a 45-year-old father who addresses his nine-year-old son as "Sweetie Pie?" I have begged my husband to stop it. If any of the kids in the neighborhood hear him the boy will be teased unmercifully. "Sweetie Pie" is not a nickname of endearment. My husband uses it when he is annoyed with the boy — which is about 90% of the time. We have two other sons and my husband has never given them any nicknames. I believe he is actually hostile to this particular child and this is way of teasing him. What can I do about it? —UNHAPPY MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Your husband sounds like a kid himself. Tell him to cut it out or his son will grow up to despise him— if he doesn't already. * * * H: Confidential to SUSPICIOUS WIFE: That makes two of us. There is a difference between good sound reasons, and reasons that sound good. * * * * Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.

DEFERENCE TO AGE Doctors Discuss Hair Loss FROM AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSN. At various times and for various reasons women may experience a temporary loss of more hair than normally falls out. Hair loss after pregnancy, for example, is not uncommon. It is due to a temporary shortage of estrogen, a female sex hormone. Ordinarily this loss of hair lasts for only a few months and then there is complete re- growth. Other factors which may contribute to a partial and temporary loss of hail' are certain medicines, illnesses accompanied by high fevers, improper use of permanent waving solutions, and normal molting periods in which dead hairs fall out and are replaced by new hair roots.
