KIRKUS REVIEW

The Chicago Daily News columnist airing some opinions airly--and more seriously--in collected columns which survive better than most. There are pieces on Borden Stevenson's (Adlai's son) disappearance from the Social Register and on some inanc resolutions passed by the DAR (""DARlings on the move""); there's a whole clutch on the hippies and one mistaken for one (""we are a much, much older culture""); on fashions, MODified and MINImized. Things get more serious with local and national racial troubles (the death of King-""we killed him""), busing, comparative supermarket shopping between the North Shore and a Negro relief area (where it costs more); Ronald Reagan; media smut and water and air pollution; etc. etc. We think he reads better than Arthur Hoppe also in this issue in between the colloquialisms, verve.
