"The Road to Huddersfield: A Journey to Five Continents" by James Morris — Who would believe that, a book about the World Bank- could ever make a "Best! Seller" list? That it would be! cited as a literary guild selection! for the fall? j The success of the World .Bank is now an established fact, but the story of its endeavors had long remained untold. Conceived at Bretton Woods in 1944, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, or the World Bank, as it is commonly known, was designed as an institution that would mobilize sources of capital to help reconstruct the war-shattered countries and develop the backward ones. The author here provides a fascinating, around-the-world account of the World Bank at work. Starting out in Washington, where lie describes the history and organization of (he Bank and portrays the amazing career of Black, Mr. Morris then travels to Ethiopia, Siam, Italy, Columbia, India and Pakistan to examine various projects undertaken through World Bank loans. With sparkling style and an eye for colorful background, he records not only the development of industrialization and expansion of resources, but also stunning atmospheric portraits of the countries he visits. Perhaps it is this vitality of style, this "electric" type ofwrit- ing that makes the book so popular. At first the subject seems quite dull. Closer examination, however reveals a true ear for descriptive narrative that will hold you fascinated. Here is an example: Washington, D.C., is full of funny .places — funny peculiar, that is, ntot funny ha-ha but few are much funnier than 18.18 H Street, where the World Bank lives. It is a big, new, faceless, rectangular building, of the sort that suddenly shrivels up your curiosity and leaves you posi 7 lively anxious not to know what happens inside. "In capitals of more dreadful temper, it might be the headquarters of the secret police, or the Ministry of National Correction, except for the sweet smiles the elevator girls give you. . . . Down the street from the Bank there are two delightful secondhand bookshops, and there you may often see haggard financiers, looking slightly sheepish, stock- Ing themselves up with Zane Youth-led revival services will be conducted Sunday through Aug. 18 at Bethany Baptist Church, 4710 Alby St. The activities will be led by the youth team consisting of Lhe Rev.
