Alpha- betically listed and superbly cross-referenced, the volume contains over brand-name basic foods along with their caloric and carbohydrate values.

The narration is good and the photos are excellent, incorporating both the lighter side of the airship story as well as the tragic. GARRY ALLISON "The Doctor's Private Life" by Elizabeth Seifert (276 pages distributed by Dodd, This absorbing medical novel portrays the famous Flori clinic with its' numerous daily facets. Chief pediatric surgeon Barne Fales and his eminently successful psychiatrist wife vie for honors in their respective professions as their marraige hits high intrigue with the eternal triangle. ANNE SZALAVARY "A Dutch Homesteader on the Prairies" translated by Herman Ganzevoort, (University of Toronto Press, 92 pages, paperback.) A university graduate, and son of a wealthy banker, De Gelder arrived in-Canada in 1910. worked as a hired hand, took up a homestead in Saskatchewan till 1913, then .suddenly vanished. He was a perceptive man and we learn something of the character of early settlers and their attitudes towards the new life. Often stories from the past are written in retrospect and writers tend to color the "good old days." De Gelder's minute account of his daily' life as it happened then, presents a truer picture. From his letters we can appreciate more fully the stamina of our pioneers through the hardships they endured. Readers of pioneer tales will enjoy reading Willem de Gelder's letters reproduced in this book. ELSIE MORRIS "The Marmalade Bird" by William Sanson (Clark, Irwin Co. Ltd. 221 The Marmalade Bird is in fact only one of the short stories in Sanson's book by that title. Each short story is an occurance in the life of an ordinary person which has been given life by Sanson's use of cynicism and droll humor. A young girl's holiday in Greece becomes an ordeal when she is raped by a convict: but being romantically inclined refuses to identify the man. A middle- aged office cleaner, out on a day's outing has a one hour fling with a strange man and unwittingly becomes entangled for life. Such are the themes for some of Saascm's short stories. This book has the ability to keep a reader engrossed and entertained. SYLVIA JOEVENAZZO "The Death of Attila" by Cecilia Holland (ALfred A. Knopf, distributed by Random House of Canada Limited, 273 The main theme of this slory portrays a strange friendship or bond which grows betweeen the young sent of a German chief and a Han soldier in the 5th Century, during a conflict of Hun, Goth and Roman armies, at a crucial moment in Western history. A barrier of race and customs from the past is brought to the forefront in this latest exciting novel by Cecilia Holland, a major historical fiction writer. Dietric, brought up to believe that Huns are hardly more than animals and Tac, who is convinced anyone other than Attila and his armies are weaklings, overcome these beliefs and form a bond of curiosity, affection and even trust until Attila dies and the world falls apart. This story conveys a personal as well as large-scale chaos that can result when an established -world breaks down. Anyone interested in historical fiction will find this interesting reading. HELEN KOVACS "Enjoying the Southwest" by Catryna Ten Eyck Seymour, (McClelland and Stewart Ltd., 252 pages, When one reads a travel guide, one expects to get camping hints, places to stay, sights to see and things to eat. This book is no exception but wait, you get a lot more. You get an enjoyable trip through the past as the author gives a history of the American southwest and its people. The mountain men, Indians, prospectors, gunmen and Mormon pioneers that settled and tamed the area are all included. This unexpectedly good book brings forth a number of interesting facts, perhaps not pertinent to your trip, but making for good reading. Did you know that Butch Cassidy had Mormon parents? And remember the movie Man in the Wilderness with Richard Harris it was based on a real-life incident in the Southwest. If you're going to tour Utah, Colorado, New Mexico or Arizona, read this book, its full of interesting tips if you're not going to tour these states, read the book anyway, its full of enjoyment. GARRY ALLISON "For All the Wrong Reasons" by John Neufeld (New American Library, distributed George J. Limited, 220 pages) This is a poignant story of two teen-agers who find themselves married in response to a sense of duty but without the emotional maturity to carry through their best intentions. Much of the story is very effectively told through the diary of the 16 year-old bride. Without being overly moralistic, the story is almost too real for comfort. ELSPETH WALKER "The Potato Book" by Myrna Davis with foreword by Truman Capote (George J. McLeod Limited, 95 pages, The "Solanum tuberosum" or "Irish" potato's original habitat was Peru where the Spanish conquistadores discovered it in the mountains 'of Chile and Equador during the mid-16th century. The name potato comes from the English corruption of the West Indian name for sweet potato, The lowly tuberosum comes to the fore in this marvelously compiled little "gem." Chapters are included on soups, salads, main dishes, breads, sweets and health and beauty lore. A well-timed book in this era of high rising food costs! ANNE SZALAVARY "Survive the Savage Sea" by Dongal Robertson. (Griffin House, 223 pages, Dougal Robertson, his wife, three sons and a student hitchhiker spent 38 days cramped aboard a dinghy, adrift on the Pacific Ocean. They subsisted on turtles, (lying fish, rain water and some unpalatable items the sea chose to give up. It was a torturous ordeal and is relived in this book by the father, and captain of the small crew. The reader will cringe as the group drink? turtle blood, relishes eyes, and finds supreme hope and joy in sightings and happenings that would have gone unnoticed only a few short weeks previous to the sinking of their 43-foot schooner by killer whales. The book is well-written and in reading it the reader gains two insights into life. Firstly he learns that man can survive under the most extreme circumstances and secondly he learns to appreciate what he has, even to the most insignificant possession. GARRY ALLISON "Five Simple Steps to Perfect Golf" by Count Hilary Yogi (NasH Publishing Corporation, 138 pages, distributed by Van Nostrand Reinhold Anything described as "the Yoga cosmic revolutionary golf and health system" has to be on the kooky side, I thought, and nearly set this book aside without reading it. But curiosity got the better of me and to my surprise I found little emphasis on mental attitudes and much interesting advice on how to play golf without bothering about all the usual intimidating stuff such as reading the greens a waste of time says Count Yogi. Here's another guy who has been ostracized by the establishment. In 1955 the Professional Golfers Association ruled against Yogi participating in tournaments, not because he's the greatest golfer of all generations ton his own say but because he doesn't conform to standards. The University of Lethbridge might like to rectify this wrong, too, by conferring an honorary degree on Count Yogi. DOUG WALKER "The Politics of Canadian by Frank Peers (University of Toronto Press, 450 Frank Peers, a former broadcaster and now a professor of political science at the University of Toronto, has documented 31 years of Canadian broadcasting history that thoroughly describes the government controls on broadcasting and the controversial history surrounding their introduction. The combination of private and public broadcasting outlets that Canadians are now so familiar with did not develop without a struggle. A struggle that included politicians, broadcasters, the business community, newspapers and at times even the public. Frank Peers' book concludes with the advent of television but the significance .of what took place in the years that he documented will enlighten the perspective of anyone seeking an understanding of the struggle that is still taking place in Canadian broadcasting. The author also explains how and the reasons why politicians changed Canadian broadcasting from a replica of the independent American model to a firmly regulated communication medium. JIM GRANT "Frontier Fend" by Max .Brand (Dodd Mead and Company, 219 This book actually is about a feud between Major Arthur Marston and Rusty Sabin, known to the Cheyenne as Red Hawk. As a young boy he was captured by the Cheyenne and raised in their way.' Involved in this feud are the white girl Maisry Lester, who is in love with Red Hawk and whom Major Marston desires, and the thief, Bill Tenney. This is not a very demanding book but provides good reading. Young people might especially enjoy it. HILDEGARD RICKARD THE VOICE OF ONE Dr. Frank S. Morley working on the railroad Photo by RICK ERVIN, Bonnie Charlie and the Jacobites "Charles Edward Stuart: The Life and Times of Bonnie Prince Charlie" by David Daiches. (Oxford University Press, pages, When you consider it. it is slightly amazing that a man who spent only one of his 68 years in Scotland is such an integral part of that country's history. The other 67 years were spent both building up to. and recovering from, that one year spent in Scotland. Born Dec. 20.1720 in Rome, Italy. Charles Edward Louis John Sylvester Maria Casimir came from an unhappy home, torn by the most on the question of Protestant Catholic ethics. As a youngster he participated in all the sports of his day. including "the and at the tender age of 14 he was involved in his first military battle. Author Daiches moves the reader slowly through the years leading up to Charles' arrival in Scotland in quest of the throne of England. He gives a very detailed background to Charles and also to the Jacobite movement and the part Charles played in it. The Jacobites, under Charles, achieved some success, due more to circumstance than ability, or so it seems. Then came Culloden. After a severe beating, the Jacobites fell under the treachery of the Duke of Cumberland
