being towed to Balboa, Armando
Palmer fell overboard between two

A small Indian community is nestled

tions and disappointments of his
Army career. Of especial local in-
terest is his description of the 3 years
spent at Camp Gaillard in the Canal
Zone. The book ends with his deci-
sion to run for the Presidency in
1952. It admirably gives life and
color to the image of one of the most
durable popular heroes of our time.
P. G. Wodehouse and his literary
agent, Scott Meredith, have collected
30 examples of recent humorous writ-
ing as a protest, they say, against
"that grim, stark stuff" which is so
prevalent today. Included in A Car-
nival of Modern Humor are pieces
by Robert Benchley, Wolcott Gibbs,
and James Thurber, and some authors
less well-known as humorists such as
Arthur C. Clarke whose story about
the artistic chimpanzee is memorable.
There are quite a few animals in this
collection aside from Bennett Cerf's
shaggy dog stories. They include an
"indomitable duck" and a schizo-
phrenic St. Bernard. Also highly
recommended are Rex Lardner's
"The Girl with the Bear Rug Eyes"
