PAINE By David Freeman Hawk (Harper Row $15) Compared with Washington, Jefferson or Franklin, Thomas Paine is hardly a household word. Yet he was as authentic a revolutionary hero as they. . No one expressed America's drive to nationhood better than this., footloose citizen of the world who never stooped to nationalism. No one's voice was more effective in rallying Americans .during the 'grim days of the War of Independ- ence.'Even'John Adams, who never liked him, said that without' Paihe's p e n , "Washington would have wielded his sword in vain." But when Paine died in 1809 in' America, he was under iurious attack by the Federalists as an atheist, a radical and a drunkard. As David Hawke shows in this splendid biography, the first two Hawke's book helps to redress the balance. Paine was vain, quarrelsome, at times ungrateful to long-suffering friends, self-deceptive and strongly devoted .to the bottle. Without It was the era of the raccoon coat, bootleg hootch,' of Paul .Whiteman of the emergence of Louie Armstrong and the early years of recordings. One of the little understood facets of Bix' music was his unorthodox fingering of the cornet. Because he- thought of his instrument as being in, piano or concert pitch, he was .unaware of the implications of the overtones.--Nevertheless he worked out a^ fingering system which appeared to many 'trained' musicians as no system at all. "Bix," is a biography and musicograpy of how he played, yh'y he played, the way he, did Â·ind it is also a salute to what he did for ihe music called jazz. Bix drank a lot during this period. Listened to other bands and often played into the morning at a friend's apartment. He played with several bands during his short 27 years.

Two backward planets in the Rigel : cluster : are yisited',b"x a charges were wrong, the third irrelevant. But so much had opinion swung against the inspired old''propagandisl that no eader, from Jefferson down, ventured a public word of tribute to Paine on his passing. Paine, in short, had become a Controversial Frgure, and he was' for many years a misunderstood and neglected one. and thoroughly enjoyable. --bww KILLING THE MOB FIRE IN THE STREETS, by Jon Messmann (Signet-95 cents) Ben' Martin is working for a trucking company near Chicago when- the Mafia capa, Nick Carboni, decides to move in. Martin, a Vietnam veteran, decides that he will fight the mob. He begins by knocking off the soldiers who threaten him HIS VISION IS UNIQUE Answers On Page 4C WHY PEOPLE LIKE JOBS WORKING. By Studs Terkel. (Pantheon. $10.) One of the little pleasures that makes life bearable for a lot of people is not having to turn on the aiarm clock. No shrill buz^ng by the bed means not having to get up and go to work. Going tc work is, for many, no great joy. Wliy people don't like -- but in some cases like -- their jobs is amply documented in this massive onllection of interviews by StuJs Terkel. Subtitled "People Ta'h About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About Wha-. They Do," the book docs for work what "Hard Times." Terkel's previous in- terview book, did f or the Great Degression. Although there are dozens and dozens ol interviews to browse through in this volume, they all are fascinating in that while each deals with the same subject -- work -- each differs from the other because the persons telling of their jobs and their feeling;, for them are different.. and eventually goes after Capboni himself. "Fire i n . the Streets", is full of bloodshed-most of it mafioso. The story follows Ben as he hangs two Mafia' soldiers on meat huoks, kills some by sniper fire and others in hand- to-hand combat. "Fire" has sex, bloodshed and terror but there is something that is needed. Second in the ^Revenger series, -this reviewer saw the hero as too much machine. In fact Ben Martin is as cold-blooded as his enemies, yet one can; not help b u t ' vicariously enjoy. The Revenger's success.

Paine was born into the English working class, ^became a. corset maker, schoolmaster, shopkeeper and customs otu- cial. The pinched life of the talented low-born in a society dominated by wealth and privi- le-ge grated, and Paine went to America in 1774. Here the man and the hour met. First tentatively in an article in the Pennsylvania Maga- sine, later in the pamphlet 'Common Sense," Paine set forth the arguments for separation and a representative republic. "Common Sense," tha first best seller in America, was pronounced "full of sound doctrine and unanswerable reasoning' by Washington. It was universally credited with persuading many tencestraddlers. Moreover, as historian Bernard Baylin has noted, "Common Sense.. . pioneered a new ind of political pamphleteering, one that presented a complex isslie to a mass audience." That wasn't the way things were done in the 18th century. GenUemen addressed themselves to a small, educated elite. Paine never was a gentleman and' he took his case to lha people in' forceful, direct language they could understand. It was an offense conservatives of the day never forgave him. After the American war, Paine returned to Europe to promote an iron bridge he had iesigned. Caught up in tha French Revolution, he made the mistake of thinking it like the American .and hoped to play a similar part. The misconception cost him 10 months in prison during tha Terror, much of it under tha shadow of the guillotine. He calmly completed "The Age of Reason," a tract elaborating his democratic and libertarian ideas and a reply to Edmund Burke, the great British conservative. ''Paine also turned to an attack on Christianity, particularly the Bible. He maintained belief in God and in an afterlife, and his deism probably didn't d i f f e r much from Jefferson's! J e f f e r s o n , however, kept prudently quiet. Paine's onslaught gave his enemies a powerful 'weapon. rPartly in consequence, he received no public welcome on Ills return to America in 1802. The final seven years were a decline.'-The melancholy closing chapter is told with the fairness and restraint that mark all of Hawke's book.
