New Library Books
This being International Book
Week with the slogan “Books
Around the World." we have a
number of outstanding books of in
ternational interest and theme on
display. These are not rentals
and are only a sample of the worth
while material available.
On the rental shelf is the much
talked of “Wind. Sand and Stars"
by Antoine De Saint Exupery. It is
the book of a poet; the kind of a
grave poetry that can exist only in
prose. To read 'it is to be born into
a new element; to know and feel
the airplane in a way known only
to uncomunicative pilots themselves.

‘ Also new this week is “Fashion is
Spinach" in which Elizabeth Hawes
1 gives a revealing inside story of the
world of fashion. She knows a great
deal about the very seamy inside of
this industry. and tells what she
knows, factually and convincingly.
She has been through it all, from
the houses of the grandes coutur
ieres in Paris. thru the frantic at
tempts of American big-business
clothes - manufacturers to steal
fashion ideas, thru the way in which
our department stores succeed in
selling us the clothes we docilely
buy from them. It is a book which
will inform, horrify, and disillusion‘
women no matter what kind ofi
clothes they wear.

I firmly believe you will receive benefit by

’ On page 37 of the 1937 edition of
Washington. See. 20, appears as
hollows—“ During the hours of dark
ness every bicycle shall be equipped
with one lamp on the front exhibit
‘ing a white light visible for a dis
fiance of at least five hundred (500)
Lfeet to the front and with a lamp
on the rear exhibiting a red light
visible for a distance of five hun

-ling that a red reflector meeting the
requirements of this act may be used
in lieu of a red light.”
I I have wondered for some time
why there hasn't been something
done about so many bicycles out on
the highways at night with no
lights or reflectors. From my own
observation I would estimate that
less than 10 percent of the riders
I see at night are properly lighted.
and less than 50 percent are equip
ped with a red reflector.
From my own experience in driv
ing a car I can easily imagine con
ditions that would make a fatal ac
cident for an unlighted bicycle rider
unavoidable. Quite often when I
dim for the oncoming car I am
blinded by a light that shoots cross
wise right into my eyes. For some
reason a few cars do this when
changed to dim as if they had two
sets of lights and the dim were out
of alignment; but I presume the
real reason is that only one light
dims. thus making it appear that
the other light shoots crosswise. Ati
any rate this is more blinding than
before they were dimmed and now
add to this rain on the. windshield,
speed of 35 m.p.h., plus the natural
tendency of pulling to the right
‘when facing a blinding light—and
1a bicycle with no lights just ahead.
‘ When a driver is facing blinding
lights his interest is absorbed by the
dangerous light and taken from
the edge of the road just ahead
where a bicycle would be. If drivers
of cars would stop and think they
can remember many times that they
drove blind in so far as bicycles were i
concerned under these blinding con- -
ditions; whereas. if bicycles were all‘
