KIRKUS REVIEW

Three long articles -- a visit to a nudist colony, a defining of humor, and an evening with Petrillo -- are included in this round up of various types of jokes, stories, quips and ad glibs. Wilson has categorized them according to region, sports, vaudeville, newspaper, magazine, nationalities, medical, religious, Jewish, Scotch, food, insults, etc., etc., and added special personality sections -- Groucho Marx, Joe Frisco, Harry Hershfield, George Jessel, sports and screen stars, presidential and column favorites and retorts. There are stories of, and by, and on -- in the name value field, there's plenty of variety and at least a laugh on every page. For the humor sections -- your money's worth, and introduced by Arthur Godfrey.
