THE INHERITORS, fiy William j Golding (Harconrt, Brace and World, 233 pages). i j William Golding became famous in this country with the publication «f 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 Ne- has long been over. They are doomed, these Neanderthals, through contact with a superior type: the Cro-Magnon, 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 craftsman- New Paperback Books Deal With Far East j INNER ASIAN FRONTIERS indeed, according to author ; OK CHINA, by Owen Lattimore!

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. i So, Golding seems to say, docsi our society ever suffer from self- inflicted wounds. —STAGEY.

ASIA IN THE BALANCE, by Michael Edwardes (Penguin Books) — Asia, from Lebanon to Tesf/mony of Nuremberg Recalls Nazi Holocaust QUESTION: Who started the Boy Scouts of America? 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 Us 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!

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. i gram "to "immunize'sonie 300,000' Despite this, Miss Epton has'persons in northeast Louisiana Sabin Vaccine Drive Scheduled In Monroe Area MONROE, La.

Nine out of ten of the thousand* of Civil War books that have, rolled off the presses have c o n- cerned themselves with battles and strategy, or with the lives of the leading generals or statesmen of 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 nt the modern wars, in one sense. It was the first war that saw Hid widespread use of metallic cartridges and repeating 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 place in this book, written and illustrated by Jack Coggins. The author touches on how the 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. For a quick glance at the arms, munitions, uniforms and services of the combatants, this book is la be recommended.

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 dales, clerks of the court took down vast amounts of testimony.

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. 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.
