THE CAMP AT LOCKJAW

Report repeated from P. 588 of the October 1st, 1951 bulletin, as follows- and presumably postponed for a more seasonable time: ""A brief encounter with Mr. and Mrs. Sunwise, their offspring- Richard and Jane, and their guest, Mr. Snivveley, which pinpoints the discomfort- and distaste-experienced by Mr. Snivveley during his stay at the Camp at Lockjaw, Maine, Mr. Snivveley, as he laves his neck with citronella, sleeps on ""pines and needles"", eyes with consternation-cum-contempt the tomatoes and tinned salmon, indulges in the primitiveness of a picnic, and spends white nights and black days, is an appealingly appalled figure. The illustrations by Gluyas Williams are suitably frumpy and grumpy."" A gift book, for that weekend host- at home or in the wilds.
