KIRKUS REVIEW

This and that to follow his earlier So Help Me collects and ambles through various experiences and reports to his about-to-be-thirteen year old daughter, Jerilynn, on many of his activities. Something of his life as a kid, of dime a dozen would-be moving picture stars, of ten years as a producer for Twentieth Century Fox, of flying and travel; comments on U.S. prestige abroad, on public speaking, on the theater, on the contrast of today with yesterday, on his own race; accounts of Cohan, Jolson, Truman; passing remarks on baseball, racing and other sports; selections from his speeches, introductions as toastmaster and from his ""public farewells"" to Fanny Brice, George Gershwin, Jimmy Walker, Gus Edwards, etc.; -- this fills in a report card familiar to a public and professional audience.
