The author has compiled a book of his favorite news stories. They carry the delightful patina of age. They deal with active aspects of life, brilliant, imaginative, and different. A few go back to the turn of the century, but many were publish during recent years. Some are long and some are quite short. Very interesting. (623 Pgs.)AUTHOR: Thomas B.
