Contrary to papular belief, the short story Is alive and well and flourishing in the hands of such highly talented writers as Macvc Brennan. In the 13 stories In this excellent book, Miss Brennan demonstrates again and again her great gilt of insight into the h u m a n soul as well as her re- markiible talent for using words in exactly the right way to' create a complex image or strike a certain mood.

Poltergeist, by d e f i n i t i o n , is a ghost who throws things, but licy also stink up a place, howl md even can be dangerous. Lately, scientists have come to ,hc conclusion that much of the poltergeist activily is caused by a young boy or girl in puberty. For some .strange reason they can upset the normal events of a household and cause knockings, hangings and all sorts of things around a house. Slciger tells about the poltergeist who dug rock and roll, the one that came to an office and even the army's store with the w a l k i n g boots. He also recalls the vicious ghost of Borley. the disrespectful poltergeist of Epworlh who plagued a minister and his i t i m i l y and Jeff the invisible mongoose of the Isle of Man, Poltergeists he says have thrown rocks, chairs and even upset coffins in a sealed family vault on tbe island of Oesel in the Baltic.

(Atlantic- Little, Brown $5.95.) This Is not an easy novel to get into, nor, Having managed that, to understand. The plot seems to operate on two levels, the real and the unreal, and the reader never is quite sure when he is dealing about the town of Port William, a pilot in the Navy and received i B.S. in Journalism, as well as an M.A. from the University of Florida. The story moves along deceptively quiet, salty yet lyrical. It should interest land-locked sailors, especially since It has a touch of Arkansas mixed in', both in "The Kid", and in the author.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A feder-, ' al court jury turned its atten- - tion Saturday toward the credi- " bility of key government wit;.. nesses as it deliberated for a X third day the criminal con' »piracy case against former ·;; Ally.

At the same time, the nine ". men and three women jurors * continued to review perjury ;·' charges against Mitchell, one"- time law and order bastion of * President Nixon's Cabinet. I However, the jury's first re- quest of the day--and! the ';. fourth sent out to'federal Judge X Lee P.

COUNT BASIS Richardson quoted Stans as replying that this was Mitchell's bailiwick. Stans denied any such , remark, and this "ormed the basis of one of the perjury counts against him.

By custom, this is a reward for jroseculion testimony from a witness involved in a purported crime. be abolut a psychotic y o u n g man who, while confined in a sanatorium, is trying to write story about his life before his confinement. But. since the writings are meaningless to all ibut the young man, one never is quite sure whether Ihis other lional, a product of his disordered imagination. The odd Ihing is that once Ihe reader gets involved in this story-within-a-story theme he continues to read on in hope of finding some kind of resolution. There isn't. Not really. What remains after the book has been finished is a feeling of dissatisfaction at not having been able lo fit logether all the parts of this lierary puzzle. Dan Jacobson, who has 10 previous books to his credit, writes a tight, well-chiseled prose that at first glance seems simple enough to understand. It -pt ing about what once was, because: "Having no longer the immediate demands of his place and work to occupy his mind, he began to go into the past. His place and his life lay in his mind like a book and what is written in it, and he became its scholar." And as Old Jack probes back through a span of years that stretches back to the Civil War, the reader relives the past with him, seeing Jack as a child, a vigorous young man, t h e husband of a woman he never should have married, the lover of the woman that he should have wed, and always, always, the farmer, lover of a portion of the earth that had belonged pregnant woman one night. These are just a few of the "Strange Guests" found in the book on poltergeists written by Steiger. --bww KEEP TONGUE IN CHEEK MY LIFE WITH XAVIERA by Larry, The Silver Fox (Warned--$1.50) Larry, k n o w n as "The Silver Fox" glibly tells about his long affair with Xaviera Hollander, author of "The Happy Hooker" during her life here and in NEED SEEN FOR CHANGE THE REMAKING OF THE CHURCH, by Richard P. McBrien (Harper and Row) The myths surrounding the Pope and the belief that he is infallible in all things (not part of the early church teachings) should he dispelled by having him elected for a limited number of years only and by removing his power "to function as an absolute monarch, w i t h o u t limitation, without accountability. without the possibility of correction," says Father Richard P. McBrien, recent president of the Catholic Theological Society ot America. He puts forth this idea in. ' ' T h e Remaking Of The Church," in which he discusses tiie present conflict within the Europe. This reviewer Catholic Church that has enjoyed the isn't. to his family for generations. J a c k ' s remembrance o f things past Is beautifully yoked by Wendell Berry. Berry is primarily a poet who also writes novels on occasion and his poetic skills are revealed to best advantage in this finely written story about the life of an old man. His use of the contrapuntal technique to draw this loving portrait of Jack is most skillful. As the title indicates, the book deals with both Jack's memories and the memories of him by those who knew and loved him over the long years of his life Fine writing aside, this still is a most refreshing book to read --· wonderfully understated alive. and yet so very much book, while not taking much of it seriously. It is that kind of book. Xaviera a f t e r being forced to leave the U.S. is now in Europe or Canada, or wherever she just happens to decide to go. She is no longer a pro fcssional. Now she writes a column in a man's magazine. Larry tells how he met her in Puerto Rico when she was using the name of Cookie. He said he talked her into changing her name to Xaviera Hollander. Anyone who buys this book should read it with tongue in cheek, even though the author apparently means every word of it. It is. in a sense, a fun book and the author's attempt to rid himself of the devils he is apparently carrying. It is a difficult book to review because of the many explicit scenes he recalls. --bww resulted from efforts made by Pope John XXIII at the Second Vatican Council to change the Catholic Church from a monarchical institution into a democracy. The mistake made at Vatican II, he writes, was in trying to impose reforms from above without adequate preparation of members to help them understand why changes were necessary. This aroused the resistance of traditionalists who clung to set patterns, lie says, and thus polarized the forward thrust of those who desire more changes. "A church of armed camps, suspiciously f a c i n g one another across a kind of DMZ" is the result he writes. McBrien explains in his book why each group has responded as it has. and suggests 13 steps he believes church leaders should take to break the deadlock and keep the church which is in crisis from dying. $14,600 In Grants Received By UA The University of Arkansas lias received checks totaling $14.600 from tho Alcoa Foundation, according lo Dr. Charles Oxford.

He admitted from the witness stand however, that he hoped his testimony would win consideration in his behalf when he is i sentenced later in Washington as an admitted conspirator in! the Watergate break-in of Democratic national headquarters June 17. 1972. Dean, like Richardson, was an unindicted co-conspirator here. The judge also reread his charge as it applied to former SEC general counsel and later chairman, G. Bradford Cook. The latter admitted on the wit- .ness stand that he was a five time liar under oalh about the Vesco matler, not only before Ihe grand jury, but also before two congressional committees.
