In a little book, a wide assor'ment of writ' rs including Murray the K Tom Wolfe, omce Jay Friedman, staff of Time Magazine and James Michener h;i\e contributed to an introduction to pop music of the 60's- folk rock, soul music and the big beat. There are brief sketches of some of the big stars and opini o n s about the reasons for the changing trends. Michener's impressions of the World Championship" competition in I ambertville, N.J. explain how a "near square" is converted to affection for rock '!i roll music . . . "»ke pep- p.-r in cooking: not as a steady diet but appreciated a* a vital accent." Bui he thought. "The best th'.ng abaut the competition was that incredible five minutes w'.en tl:c bands were tuning up (tuning up their electronics, lha: is, not their instruments)." The lif.le bDDk has a little of the fascination of the big sound. THE FEBRUARY PLAN By James Hall Roberts.

THE TROUBLE BUSH y Earl Schenck Miers. Born n a time when palsied children were often considered a punishment to parents and hidden away from sight, the Author was encouraged to live a normal life. He not only managed to complete his education, by carrying a typewriter to school, but he 'oe- came a professional writer, author of more than 50 books including the bestseller, GETTYSBURG. His story is not a pre.ty one, but his courage and tenacity are admirable and the ways he compensated for his handicap are interesting. I MET A BOY I USED TO KNOW by Lenira Matlingly Weber.

O p m By (CATHY NEWCOMB Staff Writer Merhl Morgan owns over 200,000 matchbooks -- and he doesn't even smoke. As the owner of one of the world's largest matchbook collections, it's the covers, not the matches, that interest aim. For almost 30 years the North Market Street resident has collected matchbooks as a hobby, and he now owns samples from all over the world in every size, shape and design imaginable. Some are valuable, and he has won prizes for parts of his collection. He keeps most of his matchbooks neatly arranged by sub- J^c, in 171 albums on ths shelves of two large cabinets. The rest of his collection is housed upstairs in his third floor "hobby room." His hobby all began one rooming back in 19.8 while on his way to work. At the time he was helping a friend add to his collection and stopped to pick up many of the interesting matchbooks he found on Irs journey. By the 'ime h- arrived at work, h e had collected ov?r 50 matchbook covers, 31 of which were different. So impressed with tha individual differences of the covers and the ease with which he had found them, he decided to make matchbook cover collecting his hobby too. Since then, he has joined several matchbook cover clubs and helped found the now disbanded Frederick Matchbook Cover Club. In 1965 he was awarded firs', prize from the Long Beach Matchcover Club for Irs complete "Silver Hoc k e y Set," a rare series of 60 matchcovers issued in 1934 which features the pictures of well-kr wn profession a 1 hockey players. He adds to his collection from many sources. Besides picking up matchco v e r s wherever he goes, he also buys and trades from other collectors. He frequently receives duplicate matchcov- ers in the mail from fellow collectors and in turn sends his duplicates to them He organizes his collection according to sub ect matter and the variety of categories is almost unlimited. Some of the groups include matchbooks with pictures of movie stars or other famous personalities. Others advertise the merits of everything from gum to stomach remedies, while others are fr-om hotels, towns, gas stations and tourist attractions. Among his collection are several valuable series and first sets of matchbooks to be printed by the matchbook companies. One of these is a set featuring th e pictures of all the U.S. Presidents. Issued in 1941, the set is par- ticularly valuable because if three errors which appear :n the first issue. On the cover supposedly picturing John Quincy Adams, a picture of his father is shown. The original issue of the Andrew Jackson cov»r carries the caption, "Stonewall Jackson" while subsequent issues correctly refer 10 him as "Old Hickory." The third error appears on the '-\, ver bearing a picture of Woodrow Wilson. The information on the back states that ths United States entered World War I April 17 instead of April 6, 1917. His collection also includes a variety of novelty matchbooks, like one which reallv isn't a matchbook at all but tiny bottles of perfume. Page 6 Monday.
