KIRKUS REVIEW

The annual, which again presents the year's advances in medicine, science, research, agriculture, nutrition, aviation, etc., including such newsworthy subjects as pencillin, caudal analgesia for painless childbirth, pentothal (the new anesthetic), new ways of treating broken bones, new preventives against epidemics, radiography to detect TB, electronics and radar, betatron and static electricity, the helicopter and the glider, the stratosphere and the weather, rubber, quinine, artificial insemination for better crops and better dairy animals, dehydrated foods, prefabricated houses, etc. Again an excellent symposium (drawn from periodicals) of the miracles of today, for today and tomorrow, both popular and provocative.
