They purchased visas for uba and passage from Ham- urg to Havana aboard the lux- ry liner St. Louis. Some of lem had already been in con- cntration camps. Others had een pushed to the brink of madness by months of hiding', 'eeks of terror. Cuba turned the ship back fter unloading a handful of lyslerious, privileged passen- ers. The United States refused lem entry. After 40 days, the t. Louis turned back .toward ope. England, France, Bel- ium and the Netherlands nally agreed to take a quarter f ' the passengers apiece. But : was the eve of the war. The iree continental countries were oon to be occupied. When the lolocause ended, only 240 pas iengers from the St. Louis had survived. . Gordon Thomas and '· Max Morgan Witts, former British Jroadcasting Corp. producers interviewed many of those sur Ivors and some St. Louis crew members. The result is a book 'Voyage of the Damned," docu menting Nazi propaganda ef "orts and espionage as well a corruption in the Cuban govern ment at the time. Thomas,.a bearded man says, "This is the only book I've ever been emotionally in volved in," is the author, of II books. With Morgan Witts,- he writes about people ". unde: itress. Some survivors just couldn talk about it, even today, hi said. . ' ' CRISIS OF IDENTITY "Four of those people wh were children on.the ship ha things burned into their mind: When they finally made thei way to the promised land, an met indifference ... They're no able to erase the past frprr thpir minds, but the whole thin has built up a crisis of iden tity," Thomas said. Promoting the book in th United States, Thomas has tra veled for eight weeks, lecturin mainly to Jewis groups. "Anti-semitism is still prett rife in tbis country.

His favorite anecdote about ic St- Louis is this: "If another lip had been turned back to .lermany just before the St. uis sailed, Henry Kissinger ·ouldn't be with us today." "It's a lonejy job being a mis-, ionary," Thomas said. "People end to boil you in their bland nditference. It's hard for me to undertsand. Anger I can deal vith. But indifference sows eeds for another 'Voyage of he Damned.' " erous iceberg." Most people, he added, are aying "Why make us feel un; omtor table." "I say we need to be made ncomfortable.

I bought that was harsh until I oticed how bland and indiffer- nt some audiences were." A gene ration has passed since Wolf Hitler's Third Reich sys- e m a t i c a l l y murdered six litlion Jews. Vivid memories launt those who survived. "But others see six million ind holocaust as convenienl abels," Thomas soid. "They ind them 'megadealh' and meaningless. · ^ "They're :a convenient way to assuage guilt without doing inything. We don't see indivi luals any more;" Thomas is not Jewish- He is Welsh, born, as he tells it, in cemetery where his grand parents were caretakers. Hi calls himself "a Celt who could swim" because he resides in "reland. ."I'm also not, as I've b e e n :alted by fanatics, 'a Je\ iover." I love Jews in the way I'm in love with the humai race. But. I .believe that wha this hook says is that- all thi could happen, again. The seed are here." Thomas and Morgan Witt wrote their book from million of words of research.

Previous joint efforts wer "The Day the World Ended, about a volcanic eruption Martinique: " T h e San Fran Cisco Earthquake," and "Shi. wreck," about the Morr Castle.

GRAY j SAIGON CAP) -- Three years ·after massive defoliation ended · in South Vietnam, nature is be \ ginning to heal some of the /land's scars. Restoration is slow. There are -no U.S. or Vietnamese govern- )ment programs to replant fields *and forests. " For nine years, U.S. aircraft ·showered plant-killing chem- ^icals over 3.5 million acres, an ;area larger than Connecticut, ·:For each of Soutii Vietnam's i!9 million inhabitants, six ·pounds of defoliant was drop- Jped. * The fanners remember how ait happened: their poultry, f a r m ; animals and pets died.

I "You could hear the bananas * dying," the peasants said. J In government-controlled ;areas, many defoliated fields . and orchards have been repl- ^antccl. But dozens of f a r m «people interviewed say they had ;to lake the road to recovery ! alone. They have received no ' compensation from the Saigon government or from the United .Slates.

IMPOSSIBLE TO OBTAIN Statistics on how much land remains destroyed are impossible to betin. The academy report says 3.6 million acres were defined, of which 260,000 was mangrove forest, 2.6 mil. lion was inland forest, 260,000 · was cultivated land and the rest ;was miscellaneous terrain. · That means that about 36 per ^ c e n t of South Vietnam's mang- ;rovc forests were destroyed. · Leaving nature to its own devices, According to the report, It will take ,u plo J20 years lor the mangroves to restore themselves. Recovery, of inland forests is more difficult to assess. Much of the defoliated territory remains under Viet Cong control or in disputed areas where fighting continues.

Agnes Macintosh, an English spinster with the uncanny knack of 'reading a person' enters the -case when Scotlanc Yard Inspector John Cartwright tells,her .about the mysterious death of one of the men. She'-later meets Tim Robert: son and Nan'Briton t h r o u g h the Inspector. Tim is one of the survivors, the navigator. George Brant, the co-pilot, is the second victim. He is found near a freeway. His bones are crushed as if he had been in a fall. Agnes goes to a deserted village on the coast of Devon. She gets the feeling that something terrible had happened shortly before at Blackthorne. She also finds the pilot's dog. An American investigator also gets i n t o the : act. Agnes meets, briefly, ..Gervaise Hartmann, the son o f ; the-New York millionaire,... she. realizes that' le is the' :rnurdefer. She also realizes that she can not prove ^.^'ifr;,'- V SCHOOL t and he does too. She and the Inspector also realize that Garvaise killed his brother--and the other passengers--because he wanted to inherit his father's millions"The Village of Fear"- has all the ingredients of a good murder mystery.

Some trees grew small and died, but maybe all of them will eventually be like before." . Fishermen at Can Gio blame defoliants for the decline in the number of fish they catch. They say the reduction in their catch coincides with the period during which surrounding mangrove forests underwent repeated sprayirrg. Several fishermen catalogued about 10 species of fish that have all but vanished from local waters. But U.S. fishery experts in Saigon say declines are prob- a b l y / d u e to increased mechanized fishing off Vietnam, which has resulted in smaller catches per boat but in larger yearly gains in the country's total catch. The United Slates Agency for FAST MOVING WESTERN TALE BUSHWACK, by E d w i n Booth (Ace-75 cents) Texas rancher. Sieve Harmon, is held up almost in sight of his ranch, the Double H. He also wounds one of the holdup pair who turns out to be a girl. Harmon takes Norma Devlin o the ranch not knowing either ier first or last name so he lags her Jane Doe. After his *oundup money has been lifled, Steve tries to get another herd gathered. With his foreman and partner Pete he begins the roundup. Johnny Devlin, after losing the stolen money in a poker game comes back a n d begins to help Harmon and Pete. Harmon has made an agreement with an old friend who turned against him to sell the sfock. Devlin makes a deal with the rancher to make sure the delivery is never made. In the International Development (USAID) has assigned a full- time reforestation expert to advise the South Vietnamese government. This is not specifically directed toward help for defoliated ares, but rather to logged ares. "Areas where herbicides were used have made a remarkable recovery," said one USAID expert. "Damage was not as serious as previously reported. The problem was overstated in 1968 and 1959, and it had turned out a lot less ol a problem." , meantime, he also uses knowledge to blackmail rancher. Norma remains quiet about Devlin until she learns what his plans are and then she turns against him and . aids Steve. "Bushwack" has quite a few twists and turns and Devlin proves to be real louse. He likes to gamble but always loses his money. He tries to break Steve and ingratiate himself with Harmon's enemy. Booth keerjs the action moving in this inleresling western about greed, double-crossing, robbery and murder.
