Warren's 'Flood': Powerful Novel

Robert Penn Warren a gain
emerges the master. In his newest
novel, "Flood," he is the great
story-teller, the brilliant student of
human nature, the narrator who so
ably holds the attention of his
readers through a long, 440-page
novel.
This novel, published by Random
House, is about a vanishing com-
munity in Tennessee — Fiddlers-
burg—and its people, its residents
and its earlier settlers who re-
turned to watch the drama of its
flooding.
It is the story of a city that is
soon to disappear when waters are
to rush over it due to the construe-

tion of a huge darn. Brad Tolliver,
whose earlier life is filled with
tense experience here, who brought
his bride here, who left when his
brother-in-law, Dr. Calvin Fiddler,
was convicted for killing the man
accused of a love affair with his
wife Maggie, Brad's sister, returns
to Fiddlersburg to write a script
for a movie of the impending
flooding. He brings with him
Yasha Jones, a famous director.
As the plot develops, Yasha falls
in love with Maggie, Calvin escapes
to exact vengeance, shoots Brad
whom he previously had envied,
rescues him and thereby again
escapes the electric chair, and then
he becomes reconciled to his prison
life by devoting himself there
again to medical research—without
knowing that Yasha had provided
an endowment to make it possible.
The love life of Brad, the people
of that community and their
numerous intrigues, the prison
conditions — all serve to make
"Flood" a very great novel.
Especially noteworthy is the
sociological study by Warren,
the reflections on lonesomeness,
which is a major factor in the
lives of his h ero es; the fact
that lonesomeness is so strongly
developed in the penitentiary
and in solitary.
Life's emergence as something
beautiful is one of the major
elements in this great drama.
At the very outset, the reader
is introduced to a saintly charac-
ter, Fiddlersburg's "Old Izzie", the
tailor Goldfarb. Izzie had passed
away long ago. In the search for
relics of the past, Brad tried to
locate his grave but could not find
it. Goldfarb had had a strong in-
fluence on Brad. They played chess
together, Goldfarb's simple views,
his noble outlook on life, left a
mark of deep respect on Brad.
Respect for Goldfarb is the mir-
rored mark of dignified description
of Jewish characters by Robert
Penn Warren—as in his character
of Adam Roenzweig in his earlier
novel, "Wilderness."

New V i k i ng Books Benefit Children of All Age Levels

Children of all ages benefit from
the new children's book series is-
sued by the Viking Press chil-
dren's book department.
For the very young, there will
be real thrills in "Twenty-Two
Bears." In it, Claire Huchet Bishop
has incorporated a story about
bears, parents and children, and
has told about their antics in a
style—repetitive to emphasize the
actions and contents—that is per-
fect for the 4-6 year olds. The
illustrations by Kurt Wiese add to
the book's value.
For those of the 8 - 10 age level,
there are several new Viking
books that are entertaining and
also educational.
There is the story about cats-

"Siamese Summer" — of which
Edythe Records Warner is both
the narrator and the illustrator.
There is adventure here and two
intelligent animals come in con-
tact with others—animals, birds,
fowl. There are thrills and comic
situations that will delight the
reader.
Stuart Brent has written a pleas-
ing tale about a dog and the chil-
dren who make up the cast in
"The Strange Disappearance of
Mr. Toast." The illustrations by
Leslie Goldstein add to the inter-

est this book must arouse. There
are many exciting episodes in this
splendidly written book.
William Pene de Bois is both
author and illustrator of "Elizabeth
the Cow Ghost." The story is ex-
cellent for the 6 - 7 year group
that can read for itself and can
enjoy the photographs, the dream
in which Leo is involved, the Cow
(Elizabeth) and those who join the
cast of characters in a narrative
that will inspire the young reader
to read and re-read the tale so
well told and so full of action.

Anti-Jewish Bias
Among Realtors Near
Chicago Revealed

CHICAGO (JTA)—Anti-Jewish
bias still exists among real estate
operators in the suburbs north of
this city, A. Abbot Rosen, Chicago
director of the Bnai Brith's Anti-
Defamation League, has charged
here.
Addressing a conference on
"acceptance and exclusion" of
Jews, sponsored by Lake Forest
College and the ADL, Rosen de-
clared that it has been estimated
that at least three of 10 proper-
ties recently offered for sale or
rent in the Evanston-North Shore
district were "closed to Jews"
as well as to Negroes.
"Of the hundreds of complaints
of housing discrimination against
Jews on the North Shore which we
have received," he said, "there
has always been a real estate firm
articulating the restrictions. Real-
tors have imposed restrictions on
their own initiative. They see in
such actions nothing inconsistent
with their plea of 'freedom for
property owners.' "
Another of the speakers at the
conference, Dr. Charles U. Harris,
dean and president of the Seabury
Western Theological Seminary, at
Evanston, said the villages in the
area discriminate against Jews be-
cause they fear intermarriage be-
tween Christians and Jews.

Morocco Envoy in Rome
Speaks Against Israel

ROME (JTA) — The Moroccan
ambassador to Italy, A. Boucetta,
expressed the hope at a press con-
ference here that Italian political
circles would favor internation-
alization of "the Holy City," Jeru-
salem.
The envoy explained to the
correspondents the decision taken
by 13 Arab heads of state at the
summit conference last January
in Cairo to block Israel's National
Water Carrier project by divert-
ing tributaries of the Jordan River
in the neighboring Arab states.
He said that Morocco expected
from Italy only intervention for
Israeli compliance with United
Nations resolutions on the Arab
refugees.
He said also that Morocco
"shares the fear" that irrigation
of Israel's Negev area by water
from the Jordan River would per-
mit land reclamation to produce
"demographic pressure" on the
surrounding Arab world.

BRUSSELS (JTA)—A Russian
pianist. 18-year-old Eugene Mo-

the 1964 Queen Elizabeth Inter-
national Piano Competition.
He was born in Odessa and took
his first lessons from his mother,
who teaches at the conservatory
there. He later studied at the
Moscow Conservatory. The first
prize consists of a vermilion medal Expulsion From Germany
and $3,000.
