Are children's books turning out a new generation of household slaves? A recent report on sex discrimination suggests that some children's books, which persist in portraying girls as helping mother with the shopping and the housewor.k, while boys help father mow the lawn and mend the car, are illegal under the new Sex Discrimination Act. A similar complaint was voiced in the past about racism in other stories. Are the outbursts hysterical or should publishers now tread more carefully in printing Little Black Sambo, the Janet and John series and some Enid Blyton stories?

From a cave in Kentucky once occupied by Daniel Boone to the California of the Gold Rush; Alistair Cooke follows the route of the early pioneers. -
When Cooke's talking about the wagonruls. of the Forty-niners, he's standing beside them. Whatever he talks about, he's on the spot. It seems so natural only because Cooke has complete mental possession of the visiled territory.
