Padover's 'Life and Death of
Louis XVI' in Revised Edition

Former Detroiter Saul K. Pad-
over, professor of political sci-
ence on the Graduate Faculty of
the new School
for Social Re-
search, has re-
vised " T h e
Life and
Death of Louis
VI", which
first appeared
in 1939. The
new edition
has just been
issued by Tap-
linger Publish-
ing Co. (119
W. 57th, N.Y.

Author of
authoritative
works on Jef-
f er so n, Mad-
ison, Washing-
Padover ton, Alexander
and Wilson, Dr. Padover also has
gained recognition as an author-
ity on European politics and on
major personalities in Europe.
His "Louis XVI" is the only full-
length biography of the Bourbon
King who ruled in a period of
crisis.
Based on hitherto unavail-
able documents that were se-
cured by the eminent author,
this biography throws new

light on the French Revolu-
tion, reveals the brutal char-
acter of Louis' wife Marie
Antoinette whose evils are
traced to her ignorance, por-
trays the king as a victim of
his wife's and his court's in-
trigues but who nevertheless
sought to avoid the bloodshed
of his subjects and hoped to
serve them well.
The intrigues led to Louis'
execution and there were shrill
cries of "Vive la republique!"
and "Republicans, the blood of
kings brings good luck!" And
when, 22 years later, "when the
Bourbons were restored to the
throne, they tried to -give their
brother decent burial. But all
that could be found of Louis
XVI was a handful of chalky
mud."
Dr. Padover's thorough study
is replete with historic data and
adds facts that enrich European
historical research. He makes in-
teresting comments on Louis'
last testament, the text of which
is included as an appendix to
this biographical study. "The
Life and Death of Louis XVI"
must be rated among Dr. Pad-
over's most notable works.

Yeshiva Students
in Israel Refuse
to Take an Oath

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — The
104 yeshiva students on trial for
trespassing during a demonstra-
tion two months ago against the
St. Joseph's Convent School
here, declined to take an oath
today in accordance with the
practice of Israeli courts in al-
lowing persons to testify with-
out an oath if taking the oath
was contrary to their religious
convictions.
Defense attorney Shmuel Ta-
mir said here today that three
of the youths would take the
stand and exercise their right
to make statements without
cross examination by the prose-
cution. The trial resumed today
after a recess of several weeks
due to the illness of the Chief
Magistrate.
In testimony before the court,
one of the defendants said that
the demonstrations had been
directed not against the Chris-
tian religion but against at-
tempts by the mission to con-
vert Jewish children by "brib-
ing the poor, unfortunate par-
ents." He said the demonstra-
tors had no intention of causing
injury or damage and that none
had been caused. The trial is
scheduled to resume on Sunday.
