aper-Cover Books

T HERE HAS been little encouragement in
paper-cover books for anyone who takes
his reading-whether for pleasure or profit
-seriously. For each paper-cover edition of
a book that has any substantial value, there
have been litterally thousands of editions of
books that have no intrinsic value whatso-
ever. Until drug-stores became "libraries"
I doubt that most people realized there were
so many "classics."
There are, of course. some exceptions.
Penguin Books, and other series printed
by that astute British company, have
made available to impecunious readers a
conderable body of excellent reading

were broader than that of B. B. C.'s Third

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP

T HE HOPES for a Korean truce are not as
high and bright as they were ten days
ago. Nonetheless, the Administration's plan-
ners and policy-makers are anxiously study-
ing the new problems a Korean truce will
create in the Far East.
The truth is that neither the President,
nor Secretary of State John Foster Dulles,
nor anyone else in the Administration had
ever looked beyond the end of the Korean
fighting, until Washington was taken by
surprise by Peking's truce overture. Now
that the post-truce situation has got to
be envisioned, nobody likes it much. The
main problems can be summarized as fol-
lows:
Korea will be divided and in ruins. Sev-
eral hundreds of millions of dollars will cer-
tainly be needed to reconstruct the shattered
economy of South Korea. And while we are
forced to find this huge sum of money, we
shall not have the consolation of bringing
all the boys home. The best current estimate
is the seven of nine Army and Marine divi-
sions in Korea and Japan will have to stay
where they are.
If it were not for the political situation
in Korea, a more massive redeployment
of our ground forces might be considered.
The American Air Force and Navy are
counted on to deter a breach of the truce
by the Chinese. But mere air and naval
power are not considered adequate to hold
down the aged Syngman Rhee, who is
willing to take almost any risk in order to
unify his country.
When President Eisenhower made his
statement welcoming "an honorable armis-
tice" as a "first great step" towards peace, it
was thought necessary to send Rhee a spe-
cial, mollifying message from the White
House. If and when a truce is agreed on,
Rhee will control the very large South Ko-
rean army. He has said repeatedly that he
will fight his way to the Yalu alone and un-
aided if need be. There is quite as much fear
that Rhee will breach the truce, as that the
Chinese will.'
Janan, meanwhile. has been living on her

Books have made a few excellent contri-
butions; Cardinal editions a few more.
But most of the worthwhile contribu-
tions domestic companies have released
have been either time-tried best-sellers, or
works by an author, dead or living, cur-
rently on the best-seller lists, both of
which general types are rather more than
less readily available in far better and
not much more costly form elsewhere.
Consequently, for people who regard pap-
er-cover books as something more-poten-
tially at least-than the type of reading
matter one buys before entraining for a trip
to Ypsilanti, the best news to date is An-
chor Books.
Anchor Books, a project of Doubleday and
Company, has recently released the first
titles in its new paper-cover series, and
they are now on display in local bookstores.
Those that are now on display include Sten-
dahl's "The Charterhouse of Parma," Con-
stance Rourke's "American Humor," D. H.
Lawrence's "Studies in Classic American
Literature," Joseph Bedier's "The Romance
of Tristan and Iseult," and Francis Fergus-
son's "The Idea of a Theatre." Other titles
that are promised are Joseph Conrad's "The
Secret Aaent," Ernest Cassirer's "An Essay
on Man," Edmund Wilson's "To the Finland
Station," Andre Gide's "Lafcadio's Adven-
tures," A. E. Taylor's "Socrates," Mark Van
Doren's "Shakespeare," and James B. Co-
nant's "Modern Science and Modern Man"
(although the Conant title can, I think, be
had for 35 cents elsewhere).
If current lists of books-in-print are
accurate, then the anpearance of most of
these titles will make them available in
inexpensive editions for the first time
since they were originally published. The
lowest price in the series is 65 cents; the
highest, for the Wilson novel, $1.25.
While the list of titles announced does
not include anything also included in any
of the "great books" series, each of them
has in its own way some considerable merit,
and deserves to be available for consump-
tion. Anchor Books aims, it appears, at fill-
ing a need. Since the people who operate
the business do not intend to display their
wares in drug-stores-for obvious reasons-
they have not decorated the covers with
any aspects of the human body, draped or
undraped. This is an outright service; one
need not feel either self-conscious or that
he is advertising if he turns up, say at Sun-
day-school, with one of the titles under his
arms.
Perhaps the most important service that
Anchor Books gives indication of wanting
to perform is that of making available
titles in which not Everyone, but just
Some, are interested. Modern Library and
other reprint houses provide a fair amount
of "basic" things in decent editions, but
there is no company that specializes in
providing high-quality fiction or non-
fiction that is out of the spotlight or the
mainstream.
If Anchor Books maintains the quality
which marks its beginning-and there are
hundreds of titles that deserve such at-
tention, to say nothing of readers, and if
it aims at cultivating a clientele in college
communities-as it has planned, there is no

Washington
Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON-Senators who serve on
Senator McCarthy's investigation com-
mittee, but are seldom consulted about its
helter-skelter probes, are curious, to put it
mildly, over the reported European antics
of its two junior G-men.
They are Roy Cohn and David Schine,
whom McCarthy sent to Europe to investi-
gate the Voice of America, but who are
reported to have used special airplanes at
the taxpayers' expense, got their pants
mixed up, and engaged in a brawl in the
Hotel Adler.
The two junior G-men, now known as
MC-men, have denied that Schine hit Cohn
over the head with a rolled-up magazine in
the hotel corridor or that the chambermaid
later found their room turned topsy-turvy.
But down in Florida last year, somewhat
the same thing happened in the Boca Raton
Hotel, owned by Myer Schine, when his son
David jumped on his fellow MC-man. Cohn
wanted to leave, but Papa Myer and Mama
Hildegarde Schine persuaded him to remain.
'Regardless of these hotel battles, the fact
is that these two young men, aged 25 and
26, who officially represent the United
States abroad, have been the laughingstock
of Europe.
-STUDY "WASTE"-
IN GERMANY the Frankfurt Abendpost, a
conservative nonpolitical newspaper, con-
fined itself to the following factual account
of the two junior MC-men:
"The first impression of these two in
Bonn was received by high commission offi-
cials partly with humor and partly with
annoyed disappointment. McCarthy's two
chief investigators, Roy Cohn, 25, and David
Schine, 26, came to Bonn from Frankfurt
at 11 o'clock Sunday evening, On this same
evening, they interviewed James Hoofnagle,
a public affairs officer, at the Hotel Adler
in Bad Godesberg during the course of a
dinner which lasted for more than two
hours. The dinner cost more than $25. The
two investigators said they had come to
Europe in order to study 'waste and mis-
management in the American information
program.'
"There are supposed to be books with
Communistic tendencies in American li-
braries here. From high commission cir-
cles, however, it was learned that they did
not ask a single question about costs and
personnel.
"The two investigators informed the per-
sonnel of the public affairs office at the
hi.-h commission that they should be avail-
able Monday morning at 8 o'clock. They
themselves, however, were delayed and ar-
rived at the high commission building short-
ly before 11 o'clock.
-WRONG TROUSERS-
"T'HEN THE event occurred which still is
a main topic of conversation. At 12:30,
Mr. Schine announced that he put on the
wrong trousers. A driver was sent to the
hotel in order to pick up the right ones.
Mr. Schine put them on and then discovered
that his notebook was missing. He rushed
back to the hotel with Mr. Cohn in order
to look for it.
"In the hotel lobby, it was observed
that Mr. Schine batted Mr. Cohn over the
head with a rolled-up magazine. Then
both disappeared into Mr. Schine's room
for five minutes. Later the chambermaid
found ash trayis and their contents strewn
throughout the room. The furniture was
completely overturned.
"After lunch, the two investigators inter-
rogated the deputy chief of the MSA special
mission in Bonn, Frank Miller. They asked
him and others the following questions:
'What are your goals?', 'What is European
integration?', 'What does western orienta-
tion mean?'
-EIGHT-PAGE BOO-
' AFTERWARDS they had a press confer-
ence with American newspaper corres-

pondents.
"Mr. Cohn introduced Mr. Schine as a
management expert.
Question: 'What experience do you have
in this area, Mr. Schine?'
"Schine: 'I have studied this field.'
"Cohn: Mr. Schine has written a book
about the definition of Communism.'
"Schine: 'Yes, it just so happens that I
have a couple of copies with me. Mr. Cohn
is mentioned often in the text. He has
played an important role in the prosecution
of Communist leaders in the U.S.'
"It became evident that this 'book' was
an 8-page pamphlet that was published by
Mr. Schine's hotel company and distrib-
uted by the same organization, whose
president and business head is the same
26-year-old David Schine.
"Cohn: 'We have also questioned repre-
sentatives of the German public.'
"He failed in this connection to state with
whom they had spoken. Americans who had
accompanied the two agents stated that they
were the chauffeur, two hotel janitors, aad
a barman.
"In the 45 minutes that remained between
the press conference and their departure by
air for Berlin, Messrs. Cohn and Schine in-
terviewed Elmer Lower, chief of all informa-
tion programs in Germany; Edmund
Schechter, chief of the radio branch of the
U. S. high commission; and Theodore Kag-
han, acting chief of the office of public
affairs, of which the information division is
a part.
