New Books at J Several interesting new books wo been received at the library. Short reviews of a number of them follow: The Man of the Renaissance, by iialph Roedor, is an exceedingly readable series of biographical sketches of four lawgivers, each a spectacular figure in modern Italian history, made animate with action and ideas. Beside the history one gets a vivid picture of the politics and literature of the periods. In Walter Pitldn's book, More Power to You, he answers the question that comes to each of us, how can I get the most out of my life? How can I have a happier, more efficient life? Life planning calls for energy planning— you can double your efficiency with a little training. The average man or woman never exercises more than one-seventh of the brain at a time. Ox Team Bays.
