`Inspector Rose '

Great for Children

Ben Shecter is a master story-
teller, and on top of it he draws
well. As writer and artist combined
he has produced a children's mas-
terpiece in "Inspector Rose," pub-
lished by Harper & Row.
Rose Birnbaum is the heroine of
this tale. She is the mother of a
detective, and in pursuance of her
son Bernard, to whom she brings
the traditional chicken soup, she
finds herself embroiled in a sleuth-
ing act.
That's where the fun begins. She
becomes a detective, gets to a cir-
cus, begins a search for missing
clowns and actors, and in the
course of her successful search
meets up with many interesting
experiences.
By way of illustrating and nar-
rating the Detective Rose Birn-
baum story, Shecter emerges the
splendid artist-writer.
In the process, the reader has
the joyful tour of a circus, meets
up with tricks in which Inspector
Rose is a heroic participant. There
are the lions and the fat lady and
all the fun that goes with the cir-
cus and its entertainers.
Ben Shecter adds gloriously to
his career as an artist, additionally
enhanced by his narration, with
"Inspector Rose."

United Nations Viewed Froth Within

Ralph Townley, who has been in
the service of the UN and has
traveled extensively in the UN's
service, renders the international
organization an added service in
his historical analysis of the UN,
"The United Nations — A View
From Within," published by Charles
Scribner's Sons.
His volume covers a vast area,
reviewing the development of UN
agencies, outlining procedures, ex-
plaining memberships.
In the course of his review of

great achievement of Theodor
Herzl and Zionism are ignored. Ap-
parently it is the desire of the
author to avoid entering into much
of the conflict over the Aliddle
East crises.
The activities of the Roosevelts,
Truman, world figures are incor-
porated in this record of UN
affairs.

to the Jewish refugee question, to
the 1815 Vienna Congress, the role
of Baron Hirsch, his effort at the
time of the 1878 Berlin Congress to
secure protection for oppressed
European Jews. Since this was
mentioned, one must wonder why
the vastly larger sphere remains
untouched in this book, why the

Naturei Karta Proposes
United Front With Arabs

JERUSALEM (ZINS) — Leaders
of the extreme Orthodox Naturei
Karta have contacted militant
Arab nationalists in an effort to
form a "United Front" to combat
the Zionist state, the Israeli press
reports.
The leaders of this group, Rabbi
Amram Blau and his "foreign
minister," Leibele Weisfish, have
declared here that they are con-
templating a meeting with the
French consul general, to express
their sharp protest against the
Zionist attacks upon General de
Gaulle.
De Gaulle, Rabbi Blau contends,
is a "friend" of the Jewish peo-
ple, because he attacks the Zion-
ists. Last week, the leaders of the
Naturei Karta met with the for-
mer defense minister of Jordan,
Anvar Gusiba, now residing in Old
Jerusalem. The place of the meet-
ing, as well as the content of the
\ talks were kept secret.
