Developing countries 'starving' for books By PAUL MAJENDIE PARIS (Reuter) In a world where a new book is published every minute half the 'globe is starved for reading matter while the other half is saturated by the printed word.

While the populace in many industrialized countries seem almost indifferent to books, the developing countries have created an insatiable demand for literature by providing schools and encouraging liter- acy. These are the problems highlighted in The Book Hunger by Ronald Barker, secretary of the British Publishers' Association, and Prof. Robert Escarpit of University of Bordeaux, under the auspices of the United Na- tions Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Examining the publishing market the authors said: "Taking into account adults who become literate and children who attended school the world's reading population has more than doubled in 20 years. "In Asia, Latin America and parts of Africa, there is an acute shortage of books. Low production, inadequate dis- tribution channels and the high cost of importing a suf- ficient number of books com- bine to deprive the public of reading materials they need."

'Folk tradition nurtured early- Beatles By BILL HARTLEY LONDON (Reuter) The Beatles are gone, leaving be- hind them a revolution that never quite took hold. In their heyday in the '60s, when the quartet from Liver- pool was constantly ex- panding and reshaping the face of modern music, it seemed that pop would never be the same again. Now, how- ever, three years after their breakup, the pop charts look like throwbacks to the insipid '50s, with teen-age warblers and camp semi-drag acts dominating record sales. In retrospect, the Beatles have never looked so good. Since their breakup, the Beatles have been subjected to more analysis than any pop SAVINGS THAT YOU WONT BELIEVE 4 RACKS OF WINTER COATS 150 ALL TOTAL CORDUROYS SKI JACKETS, MOUTON COLLARS Slzra 3M6, to YOUR CHOICE sale priced SUITS Reg.

What has not existed, until now, is an assessment of their work in strictly musicological terms. This has been remedied with the publication of Twilight 'of the Gods, the Beatles in Retrospect, by Wil- frid Mellers, a teacher and composer whose previous volvement has been mainly with European classical mu- sic. The book is especially strong in describing the folk tradition in Liverpool where the Beatles were nurtured and did their early work. Liverpool is a port city filled with immigrants from around the .world and Mellers makes a strong case that the mixture of English, Irish and African folk music to be found.there, was a seminal influence on the1' Beatles. This, he says, enabl-4; ed them to stand out from the other pop singers of their time. While 'his was undoubtedly true, Mellers' in his emphasis on folk roots, tends to shrug off the influence of such ma- jor pop figures of the '50s as Little Richard and Chuck Berry, whose records un- doubtedly has a major effect on the group. Throughout the book, he gives constant written-out music examples of the Beatles' melodies, usually with favorable comments, but these alone come nowhere near explaining the phenomenal success the Beatles enjoyed. LYRICS DISTINCTIVE It may be that, while many of their melodies were excep- tional by any standard, it was in the end their lyrics, es- pecially those of John Lennon, that really caught the ear of their generation. Mellers himself alludes to this several times. "Their he writes, "function effectively as words for music, using the language of common speech, oc- casionally blossoming into through the unusual collection of apparently com- monplace details: Both in their down-to-earth concision and in their English zaniness their closest antecedent is surely Edward Lear, they're poles apart from trie simplistic, gobbledegook that characterizes the poetry of so much progressive pop." Through his analysis of their music, Mellers has provided a valuable, although not com- plete, indication of why the Beatles became as popular as they did. He has produced a valuable document which, if it does not fully explain the phenomenon of the Beatles, probably does as good a job as we are likely to see.
