Written in W16. the story of Billy Byrne instead was almost forgotten. "Return of the Mucker" follows Byrne after his reijirn to Chicago, his conviction on a murder charge and his escape to Mexico during the time of Puncho Villa. On his way south he meets a poetry spouting tramp called Bridge. Bridge quotes portions of Henry Herberts Knibbs' poem "Out There Somewhere" whenever they are resting. In Mexico, the mucker (Billy) joins the Mexican outlaw gang of Pesita and quickly becomes second in command. Bridge goes on to an American ranch owned by Barbara Harding's father.

TRUSTEES Current trustees are but neither were the other Whether discussing s u c h emingly unrelated subjects as B meditational practices of inis the uses o ftorture or the tastrophe of Biafra, a brood- g permission hangs over Von- gut's words. The feeling is, Vonnegut says in a speech to college graduating class, that verything is going to becorie imaginably worse, and never t better again." So it pobably will come as rprise. athough not to those ho know and admire Vonne- it's work, that this is not ai irelentingly gloomy book. Fo; onnegut is a writer who has ch a way with words that en when he is describing the onized last days of Biafra -i event which he witnessed -is able to bring into his ac- unt some little parables »ut the goodness of man that ow there still is much to be dmired about humanity no atter how bad hings ] eem at times. This funny-sad way of looking things fs not peculiar to Von- egut, but the man does have a ay of balancing these oppo tes so that the reader both ludders and smiles at the ime time. As in this sample eked at random: "Now then -- about machine guns:' They ork sort of like a garden hose xcept they spray death. They lould be approached wilh cau on." The 25 items in this book ong with the excellent pref- ce, lake the reader on an en rtaming trip through Vonne- ut's mind.
