GOLDEN OPINIONS

A collection of autobiographical pieces -- by a Herald-Tribune staff writer and radio man- tracing his story from a Michigan childhood to the mid thirties in suburban Connecticut. In clear and direct journalistic style, he records the incident of a sadistic schoolmate who beat him daily, of a memorable fishing trip with his father, of his cousin's superstitious mother, of a Mexican fellow worker on the railroads, of university days at Michigan and the tragic death of a friend, of big stories on the H-T, of a hilarious junket to Bermuda, of wartime in Britain with its red-tape and bravery, of country life in Connecticut and visiting relatives and the charm and warmth of ""Saint Patrick and the Wedding"" and ""Fifth Avenue Christmas"". Stories for pickup reading- for humor- for human interest. Not important but pleasant.
