The era of Babe Ruth is not just the story of the home run king, It Is also the story of a 'abulous time in American listory. When Babe joined the Red Sox in 1914, he was an unregcnerate product of St. Mary's Industrial School in his home town of Baltimore and he was on parole. He was, says the author, a great, big loveable boy and s o m e h o w remained that throughout his long and successful career. He was a ladies man and -even when he was married, never stopped playing around. He Had a prodigious appetite for everything. He started in playing ball as a pitcher and ended.up as left-fielder. When ot German descent were hard put They were often harassed forced to kiss the. flag, and the Socialists were treated as traitors. In Boston one march was broken up, the marchers beaten and even the party headquarters were torn apart. The Boston Police went o: strike In 1919 and mobs roamed the streets until the governor called out the National Guard. While Babe was blissfully hit he hit, 'the ball often went sailing out of the playing field, he hit as many as 75 one season but normally got around the time Babe began ,.,,,...,, baseball, things were happening outside that would affect every American.When World War 1 began, Americans 50.

For eight .gripping days in May of 1941 the British Navy prsued and sought to, destroy the Bismarck, the pride ot per many's fleet and, at the time the world's largest warship, It finally did, out only after losing the famous battle cruiser Hood, with a great loss of life, and because of blunders en the part of the German command' as well as a number of bits of luck that allowed the British to be in the right place at the right time. Â· Ludovic Kennedy s book about that great sea chase and battle is an excellent reconstruction of those eight days, made even more gripping by the fact that the author himself was serving on one of the ships seeking to destroy the Bismarck. Kennedy's book begins slowly but starts to build up momentum as the author fills in detail after detail of the drama thai was developing on both the British and German sides. It culminates in a shattering fi nale which saw the Bismarck sent to the bottom at last while her few survivors "floated about the Atlantic with only life-belts between them and eternity" and then "the cold came to their hands and feet and heads, and one fay one they lost consciousness, and one by one they died." . As he sketches in the major details 'of this sea drama -which by its conclusion had cost the lives of more than 4.00 British and German sailors -- Kennedy also nicely fills in the small touches that remind the reader that these were real battles. He observes that as the British searched for survivors of the sunken Hood they found in the floating debris "a marine's hat wit the number RMB X738 on it" and that as the Bismarck began to go down some survivors gave "three 'Sieg -Heils" while others "sang the national anthem, and then they went over the side." Â· pi ting home runs, Prohibition came and bootleggers began making money along with' gang sters and in Chicago Al Capon grew rich. Babe never worriet bout his next drink however. The stockmarket rose t 1 dizzying heights as dealers an ordinary men and women go "in the game." Then on Nov 29; 1929, the crash came, fo lowed by the recession and the came the depression that folde up businesses and put million out of work. Babe's America was also th time of the famous trans Atlantic'flight of Charles Lin bergh, the kidnapping of Lin bergh's son and the eleclr cution of the child's kidnapper It was also the days of Ne York's Mayor Jimmy , Walk and his love life'/ the Tea Pi Dome Scandal and many mor event's that made history. Through it all, Babe Rul kept hitting the home runs an living it up. The author has researches talked to survivors and rea reams of copy about the er The result is a. book about reat ballplayer and the era which he lived. Graduates Airman Max A.

FORECAST IS FRIGHTENING THE PRIVATE FUTURE by Martin Pawley (Random House. S7 95) fn this chilling hook, Martin Pawley takes a quick look at the past, a lingering look at the present, projects what he sees into the future and comes up with a frightening forecast. It is this: "Western society is on the brink of collapse -- not into crime, violence, madness or redeeming revolution, as ma n y would believe -- but into withdrawal. Withdrawal from the whole system of values and obligations that has -historically been the basis of public, community and family life." This -'emerging society of privatized, uninyolved. anti- community individuals," Pawley feels, is due not only to man's desire to have as little to do with his fellow man as possible but in large part to our society's overabundance of consumer goods whose "ostensible functions are in reality subordinate to their overwhelming 'unction as social isolators." The deepfreeze, for example, has resulted in eliminating the necessary daily shopping of the past as well as the social contact it resulted in. Pawley's arguments bolstering his theory of "the emerging pattern of privatization in Western society" are absorbing even though some are not entirely convincing. His stress on the role of consumer goods as social isolators seems a bit farfetched although it must be admitted that it does have a cer lain loglfl, Save $50.
