'Crazy in Berlin':
Very Vulgar Novel

"Crazy in Berlin," a novel by
Thomas Berger, published by
Scribner's, is exactly what its
title implies: in a sense, it is
a crazy account of occurrences
in Berlin in the post-World
War II American-Russian occu-
pational period.
It is a story about Germans
who felt the guilt of the Nazi
crimes and about the Jews. But
its vulgarity and the attempts
to be smart-alecky about the
Jewish position create revul-
sion.
For instance, the use of such
phrases as "waiting defense-
less, calmly, Jewlike, for his
fate"; or, "Zionist intrigues as
an agent of Trotsky"; or:
"damn the Jews—my relation to
them had always been an em-
barrassment; now it became a
poison"; or: "the Jews? a kind
of vermiform appendix on the
body of history"—make you
wonder how far an author can
go in using catch phrases which
are certain to leave an evil ef-
fect on the reader.
There is an attempt to bor-
row the crudest types of anti-
Jewish sentiments in state-
ments like: "When at last the
Messiah comes, he will be an
anti-Semite." There are many
similar utterances, and no
amount of counter-statements
could correct the impressions
left by the negative aspects of
this book. Toward the end,
Carlo Reinhart, the German-
descended hero, makes the com-
ment that "a fellow who feels
guilty about the Jews is ac-
tually the worst anti-Semite of
all"—instead of remorse over
what had ben perpetrated by
the Nazis you have the above,
the statement that Jews bore
him, and that:
"When you speak badly about
the Nazis you cannot tell a lie.
Maybe, secretly, every gentile
wants to kill every Jew, but
the Nazis did it in practice and
the other Germans, or many
of them, didn't care. But you
see, someone must care."
In addition to the crude and
altogether-too-nasty definitions
of Jews and to the vulgarity of
the book, the author adds an-
other insult with his introduc-
tion of the character of a Jewish
traitor who turned over im-
portant American documents to
the Russians. That certainly
completes the unfavorableness
of the "crazy" picture. -
There is hardly anything con-
structive about such a tale. It's
difficult to accept it as either
rational or creative. It's, indeed,
"Crazy in Berlin."

Myra Waldo shows a keen
sense of understanding of the
gourmet's needs in her compila•
of "great recipes from great
restaurants" in h e r splendid
book, "The Diners'. Club Cook-
Book,' published by Farrar,
Straus & Cudahy. Matty Sim-
mons, Diners' Club vice-presi-
dent, wrote an appropriate
introduction to the book.
The country's leading restau-
rants, the Sheraton Hotel chain
and several leading Detroit res-
taurants are represented. In the
latter group are included rec-
ipes from the Stockholm, the
Clam Shop, Sheraton Cadillac,
London East and London Chap
House.
An interesting recipe worth
quoting is "C h e e s e Blintzes"
from Batt's Restaurant, Chi-
cago:

1 cup sifted flour
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon salad oil
1 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups cottage cheese, drained
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
1 /4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 /4 teaspoon nutmeg

Beat until smooth, the flour,
eggs, water, 1 teaspoon salt and
oil. • Heat a 7-inch skillet and
grease well with a little short-
ening. Pour enough batter into
it to just cover the b o t t o m.
(The pancakes should be very
thin.) Bake until underside is
browned. Turn out, browned
side up. Stack while preparing
the balance.
Mix together the cheese, egg
yolks, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg
and remaining salt. Place 1
tablespoon of the mixture on
each and fold ends in, then roll

Start Court Action
to Restrain Religion
in Miami's Schools

MIAMI BEACH, (JTA)—The
American Jewish Congress an-
nounced that a new legal effort
to halt the introduction of reli-
gious programs in public
schools will be made in the
Dade County, which includes
Greater Miami.
Bernard Mandler, chairman
of the Commission on Law and
Social Action of the South
Florida Council of the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress, said that
the new lawsuit is similar to
that filed several weeks ago by
Harlow Chamberlain. The plain-
tiffs in the second lawsuit , are
all affiliated with churches or
synagogues.
Mandler said that the suits
contend that the presence of
religious activities in the public
schools — including prayers,
Hanukah and Christmas presen-
tations, Easter and Passover
programs, reading from. the
Bible and other similiar nrac-
tices—all violate the Constitu-
tionS of the United States and
the State of Florida.
