The novel portrays personal conflicts during an African safari. New Paperback Books Deal With For Eosf THE INHERITORS, By Williaffi Golding (Harcourt, B f a c e and World, 233 pages). William Golding became famous in this country with the publication of his first novel, Lord of the Flies, a macabre little tale of English schoolboys cast away on a South Sea island. His latest novel, The Inheritors, also has a taste of the macabre, but it is also filled with an unusual sensitivity and a dramatic frugality of language. The tale is built around eight people: six adults, a small girl and an infant. They are members of that race scientists called Neanderthal, and their day on earth has long been over. They are doomed, these Neanderthals, through contact with a superior type: the Cro-Magnon, fiendishly intelligent, incomprehensibly skilled, and already a little corrupt. by Golding, have few skills. They possess the rudiments of a language, they use fire, and they practice burial rites and worship an earth goddess. They are food gatherers, and are essentially innocent of violence or hatreds. Thus, they fall easy prey to their "human" enemies. The enemy appears in the form of a hunting group, portaging two canoes above a waterfall near the Neanderthalers' cave. The story is told from the viewpoint of Lok, perhaps the most childish and irresponsible of t h e Neanderthalers, and it is due to Golding's enormous craftsmanship that he is able to portray his meager thought processes in a convincing manner. The very starkness of his prose, however, adds a dramatic dimension to his story Golding is at his best in describing, through the The Neanderthals, as picturedIlimited medium of the Neander- thal brain, the activities and rites of the invaders. The eventual extermination of the Neanderthal group is inevitable. That fact in no way, however, mitigates the poignance of Golding's story So, one imagines, the bushmen of South Africa must have felt about the Boers, and the aborigines of Australia about the whites in their day of doom. In this work, as in his others, Golding is drafting in words his picture of our society — so brilliant, capable of such vast achievements, and yet so irrevok- ably flawed. As his story ends, with the Neanderthals exterminated, one of the 'inheritors" is already sharpening his stone dagger, and planning the murder of one of his own people. So, Golding seems to say, docs our society ever suffer from self- inflicted wouods. —STAGEY. INNER ASIAN FRONTIERS OF CHINA, by Owen Lattimore 'Beacon Books) — Owen Lattimore has been one of the most prolific English writers on Asia and the Far East in recent years.

Joe Heydecker and Johannes Leeb (World Publishing Co., 398 pages). In April of 1945, the greatest manhunt in history began. The Third Reich was disappearing in the flames of its cities, and Allied soldiers were searching for Nazi leaders. Almost one million men had been placed on the Allied war crimes list, and the roundup was begun in the cities and villages of the Ruhr, in the ruins of Berlin and in the hills of Bavaria. Within a few weeks the job was completed — with certain important exceptions. Some of the Nazi leaders were never taken. Others committed suicide rather than surrender. In November, 1945, the Nazi chiefs were placed on trial in Nuremberg, before an international tribunal of the victors. By September, 1946, the trials were over, and the guilty were sentenced and the innocent — only a few of those—were set free. Between the two dates, clerks of the court took down vast amounts of testimony. It has been the purpose of the authors of this book to gather together the most important bits of testimony, and make it available to the general reader. Through the testimony of its leaders, and of their accusers, the authors have constructed a history of the Third Reich, from the days of its beginning to its end in 1945. Parkinson.

This section is concerned with economic matters, with concentration camps and the "final solution" of the Jewish problem, with the occupation of Poland. There is even a chapter on the mysterious Katyn massacre. This case opened when more than 4,000 corpses being found in a mass grave at Katyn, in Poland. The Nazis accused the Soviets of having committed this massacre of Polish soldiers. Because there seemed to have been considerable evidence that the Russians really were to blame, this case was hurriedly hushed up at the time. The two authors, one an American and the other a German journalist, have written a book which has been able to recreate some of the impact of the decade of horror that came to an end in 1945.-STACEY. Daughter Is Born To Royal Couple RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Ths royal palace announced that a baby girl was born Sunday night to King Hassan II of Morocco and his wife. The announcement said the baby was born in Rome, Italy, where the royal couple is vacationing, and that mother and daughter are doing well. In Morocco, thousands of people thronged the streets in celebration. ADULTS 50o CHILDREN FREE Amorous Spaniards Reficenf LOVE AND THE SPANISH, by Nina Epton (World Publishing Co., 216 pages). In two previous books, author Epton has probed the tactics and strategy of love among the French and the English. Now she turns to the Spanish, but finds a certain difficulty. The Spanish people proved to be more reticent about their amorous adventures. The Spaniards, in brief, feel that such things are private. Despite this, Miss Epton has gathered enough fodder on Spanish courtship and love to write her third book. Much of her probings, however, concern the past. She writes of Roman Spain, of Morrish Spain, and of Medieval Spain, as well as the Spain of more recent years. Although Spain has been celebrated for a fiery temperament, a certain flambuoyance and display, Miss Epton holds, in matters of the heart they become circumspect. "However gay a life a Spaniard leads," she points out, "there comes a time — as it did for Don Juan — when he is overcome by an innate horror of the flesh and a reverence for carnal purity." This, the author avers, is the seat of the Spanish paradox. Perhaps because of the reticence of some of her subjects, Miss Epton's third book seems to lack the verve of the first two. Or perhaps this probing into the love lives of others begins to pall upon the lady. r-Juntof Editors Quit on BOY FELLOW- 9HIPWITH OtHEft NATIONS.

ANSWER: Boy Scouting was originated by Sir Robert Baden- Powell, in England, in the year 1907. The idea spread rapidly; William D. Boyce and Daniel Beard started the Boy Scouts of America in 1910. There are Boy Scout groups in almost every community In America, with a membership of boys and adult leaders of around 5 million. The great success of the organization Is proved by the fact that there are units of Boy Scouts in 69 countries. It is a truly International movement, nonmilitary, non-political, respecting all races and creeds. Boy Scouting teaches obedience to the laws and customs of one's own country, but it also has its own rules. The Scout motto is "Be Prepared." Its slogan is "Do a Good Turn Dally." When a boy joins as a Cub Scout, he makes a promise to do his best to do his duty to God and his country. As he becomes a Boy Scout, he promises to help others at all times, to be physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. The Scout Law is that a Scout must be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. » » * FOR YOU TO DO: Whether or not you belong to the Boy or Girl Scouts, you can take a part in the fine program they suggest to young people. Be prepared to help in any emergency! Do at least one good turn daily! e . 27 (Alvin Burns, Jr. of Charleston, S, C., wins $10 for this question.

Nine out of ten of the thousands of Civil War books that have rolled off the presses have concerned themselves with battles and strategy, or with the lives of the loading generals or statesmen 6f the period. Now and then, however, a different note is sounded. This book sounds such a note. It is a survey of the arms and the equipment of the Blue and the Gray. The Civil War was the first dt the modern wars, in one sense. It was the first war that saw tha widespread use of metallic cartridges and repealing rifles. It witnessed the birth of the iron clad warship. Telegraph lines were used on battle fields for the first time, as were telescopic sights. Strategy was tied to railway lines, and heavy artillery was used to a greater extent than ever before. All these things find their placa in this book, written and illustrated by Jack Coggins. The author touches on how lha combatants were fed and clothed, the activities and equipment of the engineers, the signal corps, the medical department, and the quartermaster corps, as well as the fighting arms. P'or a quick glance at the arms, munitions, uniforms and services of the combatants, this book is to be recommended. Particularly helpful is a bibliography for any adventurous reader who might want to explore farther along any path.
