Wheeling Around Bj PHILIP LENHART GALE WILHELM £iui written a memoir of love caTledr- f, Bring Homo the Bride ” in which insanity, Incest Arid sudden death all play import ­ ant parts. Yet, ns The New York ­ er says, love conquers all but in ­ somnia. From the moment of love ’ s awakening, Carol and Hans, the two lovers in \Bring 1 Home the Bride ” , remain awake most of the night. \Bring Home the Bacon ” — I mean Bride — is the love story of a 33-ycar-old girl with a past and a 25-ycar-old boy with a future. Before tragedy spoils their fun, they play at love in a charming and romantic manner. : In spite of its warped perspective and arty overtones this novelette (only .179 pages) is worth reading. I object to everything the author says, but I will defend to the death her style of saying it. She has an original way of using words that is fresh and invigorating. M Yet the complete lack of balance in her artistic perceptions destroys the validity of her writing. Her book, in Us action, is as violent as anything Steinbeck. O ’ Ham and Cain ever wrote. She holds up a mirror to nature, hut the mitror, unfortunately is convex and distorts images out of all proportion. the hard discipline of life in the navy could shackle his spirit of independence. The early chapters of . the biography recount Trclawny ’ s ex ­ periences in the English navy. This was the period that followed closely on the mutiny of Captain Blight ’ s crew, with which modern readers ha,vc been made familiar. It was the time when the ships ’ dining tables, which were also used as operating tables, were stained red so that the blood of the wounded would not be too conspicuous. Trela\Vny deserted ship, joined up in a raid on a pirate den, in which he rescued a beautiful Arab princess, carried her back on shlp- . bq^rd only to learn later that, ac ­ cording to Arab ritual, he was married to her. The whole book is keyed to this pace and will enter ­ tain every reader.- DISPOSAL SALE For sale cheap to antiquarians: One slightly worn copy of A Smpke Screen ” by Samuel B.

Judge Tompkins ’ history book notes in the chronological table of memorable dates for Hav- erstraw; ” 1850, September 23. — Began to burn ’ spurt gas* in the stores.\ 'Spurt gas ” doesn ’ t seem so wonderful now ­ adays. Once, like the electric light (whose first demonstration in Rockland. County was by Professor Maxim in a Dexter Folder Company building, under sponsorship of the late J. E. Braunsdorf) or the telephone (first demonstrated to nn audience at the old Opera House, Nyack, as a stunt), gas was a thing of the laboratory and the stage. Nor ­ man Baker of New City, editor of this paper, has a copy of \Kirby's Wonderful and Eccentric Mu ­ seum, or Magazine of Remarkable Characters in ­ cluding all the Curiosities of Nature and Art from the Remotest Period to the ‘ Present Time, Drawn from every authentic Source. ” This volume with the long title was published in London in 1820, one of a set of six volumes. Under the heading of \New and Occonomical Process H ot producing Light or Illumination, from Smoke alone, ’’ the manufacture of coal gas is de ­ scribed: \The numercus discoveries resulting from the spirit of philosophic research, so generally diffused within these few years, throughout the most civil ­ ized nations of Europe, have undeniably contrib ­ uted to promote in a high degree, the comfort and conveniences of society. None however promises to bo more beneficial, or of more general utility, than a discovery first exhibited at Paris, In 1802, and lately introduced Into this country by an Ingenious artist who obtained a knowledge of the secret, and who has for several months exhibited it tp^ the curiosity of the public at the Lyceum in the strand. \The object of this discovery, which will doubt ­ less form an important epoch in the unnals of do ­ mestic oeconomy, is to produce light without the aid of wax, oil, tallow, or any combustible now em ­ ployed for that purpose. The expcncc of illumina ­ tion both to the community in general, and to in ­ dividuals in particular, is most, sensibly felt at the present moment, when the materials employed for that purpose have attained to an unprecedented price. The public must therefore feci more deeply interested in a discovery which tends to reduce that expense to a mere trifle, and to supply them with a light infinitely superior to that which they have hitherto been accustomed.\ To satisfy everyone of the practibility of the 'invention, the author described in detail how to burn \common coal\ in a sealed vessel permitting the vapor to escape by a \tobacco-pipe\ or similar tube. When once lighted, the gas burns until the coal has turned to coke. \The flame produced from the tube of a com ­ mon tobacco-pipe,\ flays the book, \Is equal in volume to that of a large candle, but the light is much clearer and more intense. Having now de ­ scribed the process on a small scale, it may easily be imagined what an effect may be produced by an iron pot, from which tubes of any number and any length, may convey the inflammable va ­ pour to every part of a building of any magnitude or extent ... It should be observed that by means of tube*, either of tin, iron, or any other material, the vapor or gas may bo conveyed to any part of a building where light is required. The expence with which this method of illumina ­ tion is attended is comparatively insignificant . . . \After this explanation it would be needless to expatiate on all the applications which may be made of this useful discovery. There can be no doubt but that the ingenuity of some of our countrymen, will soon put the public into the en ­ joyment of the manifold benefits that may bo de ­ rived from it.\ ROMANTIC ADVENTURER Ever since \Fanny Kemble ” by Margaret Armstrong was sent to me as a bonus by the Book-of-the- Month Club several years ago, I have never regarded Miss Arm ­ strong as much of a biographer. She represents all too well the modern Biographer who conceives his proper function as nothing more than a correlator of evidence. \Fanny Kemble,\ which might have been a wonderful book, in Miss Armstrong ’ s hands turned out to bo nothing more than n series of quotations and paraphrases of Miss Kemble ’ s own writings strung together by a lustreless account of her life. Now Miss Armstrong hn^ writ ­ ten \Trclawny a biography of the first of romantic adventurers In the early years of the 19th century of which Byron was the most notable example. She has succeeded much better in the present undertaking than in the last for several reasons. In the first place, ‘ Ahe brings a spinster ’ s natural enthusiasm to such a romantic subject as Trclawny. Second, the shining ex ­ ploits of Trelawny ’ s life could not be dulled even by the most prosaic b.ographer. Finally, the book will appeal to everybody because all of us are, to a greater or less de ­ gree, Miniver Cheevys at heart and, like him, “ love the days of old when swords were bright and steeds were prancing.\ ANTI-SEMITIC LAWS FOUGHT INBALKANS THE AGE OF BYRONISM Edward Trclawny was born in 1792 and lived to be more than 80 years old.

Hints on Etiquette When two persons are reading, it is not very considerate or good manners for one to interrupt the other by reading aloud to him or her. It interrupts the reader ’ s train of thought and is often very annoying. Words of Wisdom Politeness is but kind feeling toward others, acted out in our intercourse with them.

ROY Chapman Andrews, America ’ s moat noted explorer, \et un chevalier sans peur et sans re* proche,\ has written upon a sub* ject about which he is aboundant- ly informed. The title of his most interesting new book is \This Amazing Planet. ’ ’ Perusing it, we learn that all mammals except men and monkeys ‘ are color-blind, although birds, fishes and Insects can distinguish color. We learn that locusts are good, cooked in sugar, and that penguins, grown old or sickly, commit suicide. ' Dr. Andrews has adventured greatly, and on one occasion his native gun-bcarcr jerked him right out of the colls of a huge python. He Is intensely interested in about everything on this amazing planet, from blue whales to green sap ­ phires. His main quest, though, is seeking the First Man the first creature which could be called really human. He thinks \It may be preserved in the eternally frozen soil of the cold north of Russian Siberia.\ Ho had hoped to lead an expedition into a region where the land la an everlasting refrigerator: where, indeed, he believes he will find not only the bones but the flesh of the low-browed, hcavy-chlnned, stoop- shouldered. barrel-Cheated hairy creature which came down out of the trees a few million years ago to lead the fantastic parade of humanity. It was about 50 years ago that natives of the region Into which Dr. Andrews will venture uncov ­ ered the enormous carcass of a thre.e-ton mammoth. Countless cen ­ turies ago It had been trapped In a bog. and there It died. But when it waa found It was so well-pre ­ served that It might have perished yesterday. And Dr. Andrews asks himself: \If a mammoth, why not tbe man who hunted the mam ­ moth.** With China and the Chinese, Dr. Andrews la probably through and finished.

So, full of wisdom, cov ­ ered with honors, celebrated the nation over, he lived and died. Today ’ s Horoscope An eventful year lies ahead of those who have birthdays today. They should make no changes, and are, advised to exercise re ­ straint in all things. Born on thia date a child will be forceful, opti ­ mistic and enterprising, but some ­ what liable to go to extremes. Also such a child will be inclined to extravagance and fondness for dis ­ play. DR. FEW DIES One notes, with the deepest re ­ gret the passing from this life of a very great educator, Dr. William Preston Few, President of ' Duke University. It was my good for ­ tune to be of his acquaintance, and indeed to speak at Duke un ­ der his kindly aegis. Dr. Few made Duke nationally famous not only in the field of education, but in the field of sports. Duke woe called Trinity College when he took hold. His close friendship with the Duke family undoubtedly influenced James B. Duke to create a $45,000,000 trust for the development of little Trin ­ ity Into a really great university which now bears the name of Duke. Under Dr. Few, the student body Increased from 400 to 3,500; the faculty from 40 to 400. He fought all his life against what he considered the tendency of American institutions of learn ­ ing to turn out second-raters and half-educated panhandlers. He told this speaker on one occasion that • very large proportion of young men and women, aent to college almply could not absorb a college education; that it was wasted on them. His burning ambition waa to turn out thotqughly educated LLOYDS GO UNDER If it is possible to extract a smile from the brutal war oyer there, one might well chuckle at the news that Lloyds, the insur ­ ance underwriters, who were fam ­ ed for taking a chance on any ­ thing except insuring dgalnst a change in women ’ s styles, have gone underground — taken to • a bombproof shelter. \Yhen the fam ­ ous Lutlne Bell supplements the $ir raid sirens, the 200 under ­ writers and 5,000 employees scurry to the steel and concrete sub ­ basement vaults formerly used to store records. Here they can really do business as usual or get a haircut, buy cigarettes or order a quick, luncheon or even buy thea ­ ter tickets in shcltershops doing business inside the shelter. Lloyds of London is the most romantic and remarkable of all in ­ surance organizations. It is 251 years old. It dates back to a coffee house which Edward Lloyd conducted in Tower Street, Lon ­ don, nn inn much frequented by merchants and seafaring men. It waa originally, and so greatly re ­ mains, nn organization of under-* writers who take risks on ships and their cargoes; but Lloyds does take queer gambles.

By International News Servlco BUDAPEST,' Nov. 11 (INS) — Across a wide front of Danubiaa and Balkan countries, the imposi* tion of anti-Semitic legislation — usually the first sign of submission to Nazi pressure —Is meeting wltlj growing resistance from the local populations. Addressing members of th# Union of Old Hungarian Families, an aristocratic patriotic organiza ­ tion, one of Hungary ’ s best known authors, Lajos Zllahy, boldly scoYed Nazi-inspired racist policy in this country in the following terms: \We are living in times when to speak one ’ s mind is equivalent to high treason,\ Zilahy asserted. \AH the same it is my deep con ­ viction that ih' any definition of Hungarian, there must be included not only the bearers of gold medals and the members of old families, but those Hungarian Jews whoso souls matured on this soil and who, with their work* and writings participated in the development of this nation. \Our conception of Hungarian- ism has nothing whatever to do with German Volkatum (nation ­ ality), which is based entirely on race. For ufl, anyone is a 100 per cent Hungarian whp feels himself Hungarian.\ R«H;ent Laws Opposed Zilhay ’ s statement received en ­ thusiastic applause from his audi ­ ence, which included members of { Himgary ’ s patriotic and aristocratlft families, ns well ns her outstand ­ ing authors and playwrights. Pre ­ mier Paul Telckl is a member of the group. In Yugoslavia several Cabinet members, according to dispatcher received here from Belgrade, threatened to resign if the govern ­ ment embarked on a large scale anti-Jewish program. Recent dis ­ criminatory legislation, Imposed as a measure of \appeasing ” Ger ­ many, was understood to have precipitated dissension in the Gov ­ ernment. Some members take the view that the imposition of euch measures harms the state by cre ­ ating difficulties for Yugoslavia ’ # insignificant minority of Jew#, In addition, they feel that since anti-Semitism is usually the first spearhead of Nazi penetration, It is precisely at this point wher# resistance should be offered, til order to forestall further Nazi# en ­ croachments. In Bulgaria too, the population is reported to have received with cool indifference recent anti-Jewish laws, according to dispatches re* cclved here from Sofia. Bulgaria, like Yugoslavia, is a Slavic coun* try where Jews form a tiny pro ­ portion of the population\ and have for centuries enjoyed right# with all other citizens. There ar# only 50,000 Jews in all Bulgaria, or 0.6% of the total population. Recent anti-Jewish legislation could, therefore, serve no practical purpose.
