Here's Adventure And Romance in Wilds of Africa BY DOROTHY ELLIOTT If it is a light novel of romance and adventure that you choose to wile away one of these cold, blustery evenings, you could not do better than select George Agnew Chamberlain's "Two On Safari" (Bobbs-Merrill, Publishers).

Laid on the torrid African veldts, the climate as well as the exciting little plot will distract your mind from frost-nipped fingers and toes. Ballard Mallory, an American adventurer, finds himself in London and his income cut almost in half. As he has had three, years experience in" Africa, hunting and exploring, he answers a rather mysterious personal advertisem*nt for a man to search Africa's interior for the missing Laurence Morland, English nobleman. On the boat out he meets Josephine Cascoden whose reserve and dignity greatly impress him. He is, however, startled when she announces her determination to follow him into the jungle and join his search for Morland.

Their trek is one of constant adventure and excitement in which they encounter all manner of thrills from kidnaping to the madness of an Englishman gone native in the most vicious way. The element of suspense is cleverly employed and such questions as what and who Is Josephine? will Mallory resist tho temptation to kill for the fortune offered him for news of Morland's death? will puzzle you to the very end of the book.

ISAAR CHILD DIES Special to Post-Crescent Isaar Albert John, 3 months old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Steffen. died Tuesday afternoon following an illness of bronchial pneumonia. 9 Phil Stong Writes in New Vein BY DOROTHY ELLIOTT In reviewing Phil Stong's last book, "Village Tale," we expressed unqualified the opinion that we would admire everything from Mr.

Stong's pen. Strangely this enthu siastic and rash statement is up held with "Week End" (Harcourt, Brace, Publishers). True, we do not hold for this story of the East the same deep affection which was inspired by his stories of farm life in Iowa. But we do feel that Stong has, through this medium, proved both his versatility and secured his position among the outstanding younger writers. Emotional depth was the mark ed quality of all of those previous books, "State Fair," Stramger's Return" and "Village Tale." There was a depth and sincerity to the characters of these books which scorned subterfuge and artificial lty.

In "Week End" the author creates for us his version of the worldly and sophisticated who think it necessary to cloak each act and thought in a shallow gaudi ness which will belie its sincere meaning. 'Week End" is the story of a house-party to which the hostess, Flora Baitsell, invites a rather ill-assorted and uncongenial group, presumably to choose her husband from among them. There is Karl Huhn who "grand-stands" his marital martyrdom, Janet his wealthy and frivolous wife; the pedantic Abbeys; Bill, the engaging drunk ard; Jenkin, the perfect Virginian gentleman: Adam, who gives "the impression of overcooked spaghetti," and the little red-headed chorus girl, Ginger Carroll. We enumerate them for you in order to show you how typical the group is to this novel-type and then hasten to assure you that as stereotyped as these classes are to the many adap tions of the old Grand Hotel plot, in Mr. Stong's hands the charac ters become persons, persons with enough individuality to give them life.

That the gathering of these peo ple, several of whom despise one another, will be dramatic is felt from page one and swiftly and inevitably it develops that this particular weekend is to climax the life of almost every guest. Stong has done a highly creditable novel in a vein distinctly different from his earlier books and has with one leap passed many who might consider this field their forte. Whether or not you like this as well as the previous Stong-type will be a matter of personal taste. That its conversation is scintillant and its characters entertaining you must grant. John Otis Succumbs al Residence in Ashland Special to Post-Crescent Ilortonville Steve and Enock Otis received word of the death of their uncle, John Otis, at Ashland on Thursday.

Here's Mystery Set In Holiday Season One of the prime requisites of an A-l mystery is that it must set down "the behavior of normal reo- pie in abnormal circ*mstances." "Crime at Christmas" (Harcourt Brace Publishers) by C. H. B. Kit-chin is commendable for just this thing.

Malcolm Warren, a London stock broker whom you met in "Death of My Aunt," is invited to spend thr-Christmas holiday with his client, Mr. Quisberg. Other cuests arc the erratic Dr. Green, Leonard Dixon, fiance of Quisberg's daughter Sheila, and Mrs. Harley, th mother of Quisberg's secretary.

Thf strange tension which Warren no tices almost as soon as he enters the house he accredits io the gigantic business merger in which Quisberg is concerned, but the ap parently accidental death of Mrr. Harley followed closely by a sec ond death which cannot be accidental force him to change his mind and to accept the fact that. among this small, intimate grouu. there is a murderer. "Crime a' Christmas" is cleverly and well told and presents a tidy little problem.

Treat Colds Promptly, Health Board Warns Madison -W) Prompt treatment of colds was urged by the state board of health today as a safeguard against pneumonia, which the board said is proving "unusually hazardous" in Wisconsin this winter. Dr. H. M. Guilford, state epidemi ologist, said the common cold in severe form, rather than influenza, is largely the stepping stone used by pneumonia in the present wave.

For several years pneumonia has been sixth among the leading causes of death in Wisconsin, the board said. The disease imposes a high fatality rate among the very young and the aged, statistics reveal, and particular care should be exercised among these two age groups, the boar said. Common colds 'often descend to the bronchial tubes and the lungs, eventually producing pneumonia, the board said, urging avoidance ot undue exposure to cold weather and chills. The board suggested the use ol ample outdoor clothing, including footwear, confinement in bed when a cold is contracted, and consultation of the family physician. Seeks Compensation For Relief Workers Madison Persons injured while working on unemployment relief projects would be entitled to workmen's compensation at practically the same rate as regularly employed persons engaged in the same type of work under terms of a bill introduced in the legislature by Senator G.

Senator Ingram said the bill is in: tended to remedy the situation resulting from a supreme court decision which held that relief workers are entitled only to compensation in proportion to the actual amount earned while working part time. The Ingram bill provides that the average annual earnings of relief workers shall about equal those of regular full time workers.
