Novels Lead Spring Volumes;
Others Handle History And Art
What with spring fsver and war nerves, most readers need a mental
blood-thinning after a season of heavy books. Two established writers
and two newcomers have novels out which should meet the needs of
those looking for lighter but literate reading.
when he died, Hugh Walpole
left a finished novel, "The Killer
and the Slain” (Doubleday,
Doran: $2.50), John Talbot and
James Turnstall fought for yean,
but were Incomplete without each
other. They struggled so bitterly
they destroyed each other In this
joyous nightmare for those who
are excited by phychologlcal ter
Robert Wilder more than keep*
his pace with "Flamingo Road”
(Putnam: $2.60), the story of how
a carnival girl battled the mean
est politician in Florida. “Fla
mingo Road” will keep you In
your seat.
It’s a pleasure to announce the
appearance of a new writer who
can produce light but thoughtful
fiction. Meet Harriet Ball, whoee
“Each Alone" (Harper: $2.50)
can’t fall to entertain anyone who
cares about wit, charm and people,
family live in this novel with few
new situations, but the old ones
annually met in new spring fic
tion achieved originally here.
“A Little Lower Than the An
gels” (Knopf: $2.75), by Virginia
Sorensen, presents a novelist of
solid talent who knows how to
handle a specialized fictional prob
lem and keep the dull edges to a
minimum. Her story concerns the
early Mormons and the problems
of Mercy Baker when her husband,
whom she followed to this new re
ligion, adopted polygamy. The book
should Insult no one’s religion, but
should receive true praise.
We were very bad neighbors for
years with our now good neighbor
to the north. That and other not
so well known accounts are handled
in a newsy, readable manner in "A
Short History of Canada for Amer
icans". (University .of .Minnesota
Press: $3) by Alfred L. Burt He
does a rood pob of making the his
tory of Canada read as interestingly
as fiction tales of the blf woods and
the far north.
Some mis taken notions on both
sides of the Mason-Dlxon line
should be eliminated, by two new
books on the south, much written
about and talked of, but rarely
understood very far north of
Thomas Jefferson Werthenbaker
does a thorough job In "The Old
South” (Scribner: $3.90) of ex
ploring and explaining back
grounds and blowing down fiction
inspired beliefs that the southern
gentleman “before the war" spent
his time in high and riotous living.
In “The Coming of the Civil
War" (Scribner: $3.75), Avery
Craven blames hotheads and
emotional windbags largely for
the bitter struggle between the
states. His chapters on the Dred
Scott decision, John Brown and
“bleeding Kansas” should cause
considerable argument.
An unusual biography about an j
unusual man is “John Wool man”
(Little, Brown-Atlantic Monthly
Press Book: $3.75), by Janet Whit
ney. By diligent search through this
early American Quaker's journal,
Mrs. Whitney relives for the reader
the life of one of those great pa
triots of whom too little is known.
In “The Emergence of an Ameri
can Art” (Scribner: $3.75), Jerome
Meilquist has written a great deal
of cogent criticism, as well as a
first-rate survey of American art
from Whistler to Marin and the
While he writes well of Whistler
and Sargent, the author's full
strength shows Itself as he dis
cusses the realists who returned
from Paris to throw American
parlors into an esthetic uproar.
Meilquist also takes a gentle slap
at the regionalism of the Benton
Wood group, and like many an
other critic, wishes Rockwell Kent
had stuck to Eskimos.
A worthy companion to the MeU
quist book is “American Primitive
Painting” (Oxford: $5), a large
volume edited by Jean Upman and
containing several colored and many
black and white reproductions of
this important form of painting.

White Cross Membership

Membership to the non-profit
White Grow, the Connecticut Plan
for Hospital Care, has risen to more
than 989,000, Including the applica
tions of new members which be
came effective on May 1, William
Robson, assistant general manager
of the Plan, said today. This rep
resents the highest point in enroll
ment yet reached by the Plan, he
At the same time, Robson re
minded members of the newly
adopted regulations affecting men
or women leaving their employ
ment to enter the armed forces of
the United States, and urged them
to take advantage of the special
privileges open to them. Robson
said he referred to the rule which
permits such employes to suspend
their own White Cross membership
for the duration of their service
while continuing to protect their
dependents. Ordinarily, when an
employed subscriber drops his
membership, his dependents must
also be dropped.
Robson said that, although many
persons leaving for the army or
navy are talcing advantage of the
special rule, others are apparently
not aware of the opportunity open
to them. "A man’s dependents are
just as likely, If not more likely,
to need hospital attention In war
time as in time of peace,” he point
ed out. "With the principal wage
earner to service, and family earn
ing power down, dependents who
need care will find their White
Cross membership more valuable
than ever. We adopted the special
rule as a service to the service men,
to help them leave their family as
well protected as possible, and we
sincerely hope that wherever possi
ble they will take advantage of It,”
he said.

Femdale Pilgrimage
Will Be Held May 24
Outdoor Stations of the Cross and Prayers in Grove
to Holy Ghost to Be Recited on “Family Day"
Sunday afternoon, May 34, out
door religious services will be held
at Fern dale, the Holy Ghost Mis
sion Seminary. These services are
known as the "Pentecost Pilgrim
age." Being specially dedicated to
God, the Holy Ghost, the Third
Person of the Most Blessed Trinity,
the Holy Ghost Fathers have ar
ranged a program that will com
bine Instruction on the Holy Ghost
with devotions and prayers offered
to this same Holy Spirit.
Pentecost Sunday derives Its name
from the Greek word for “fifty' be
cause this day always occurs exactly
fifty days after Easter. It Is the
official Feast of the Church In honor
of the Holy Ghost since on this day
the Holy Spirit descended upon the
Apostles who had gathered in the
upper room in obedience to the
command which Christ gave as He
left this earth and ascended Into
Heaven. After they had perservered
there In prayer for nine days, the
Holy Spirit appeared In the form of
tongues of fire which settled on the
head of each Apostle. This period
of nine days Is the origin of the
custom of that form of prayer known
as a “Novena,” which is simply the
Latin word for “nine-fold.”
These services at Ferndale were
originally planned for the benefit
of the laymen who go to Ferndale
each summer for retreat. On this
'“Family Day” they were invited to
bring their family and friends to
visit the seminary property and
chapel. However, for the past few
years the invitation has been ex
tended to the general public.
Beginning at three o’clock on Sun
day afternoon the people take part
In the out-door Stations of the
Cross, and then Join In the public
prayers which are recited In honor
of the Holy Ghost during the Bene
diction of the Blessed Sacrament,

for this occasion, one to exhibit re
