"The Laugh's On Me," the
newest 2ollection of humorous
stories by Bennett Cerf,
America's
leading story-
teller, publish-
ed b3 Double-
d a y, contains
more than
2 , 0 0 0
dotes,
t es, per-
sona' recollec-
tions about
scores of not-
ables and ob-
Cerf servations that
will delight his readers.
Appearing in a listing of 100
categories, people in all walks
of life are entertained in this
book about their professions
and trades and their confreres
in many callings.
Many of the observations, in
their anecdotal form, contain
truly philosophical guidance for
leaders in professions and in
the arts and crafts. Here is an
example:

" 'Advertise,' warned show-
man P. T. Barnum, 'or the
chances are that the sheriff
will ,do it for you.' To illus-
trade his thesis, he pointed
out that there are 26 moun-
tains in Colorado higher than
Pike's Peak—but how many
people can recall the name
of any one of them?"

The se c t i o n "Cloaks and
Suits" has many humorous stor-
ies that will add to the fun of
those who enjoy good stories.
It would be most difficult,
however, to select any one sec-
tion among the 100 categories
as being of special significance,
since the entire collection is
just one continuous storehouse
of entertainment. It is as such
that Cerf's "The Laugh's On
Me" is recommended to the
reader. —P. S.

Towering • seventy feet above the desert dunes, Israel's

on the Mediterranean coast near Ashdod. Designed for the

ment. made possible with the aid of Israel Bond investments.
Half of the $600,000 cost of the new reactor is being met

supplied by Israeli sources, including the Government of
Israel, whose Development Budget is financed with Israel
Bond aid.
