KIRKUS REVIEW

Some flexible free-association by a Richmond, Virginia columnist occasions casual commentary on anything from a Russian bear cub in a zoo, to the new look in banks; on the nuclear era and a little colony engaged in ""casualty simulation"" in Britain, to he machine age which can short- change the customer; from paternity and anxious moments during the couvade on to the first grade, to a correspondence with Thurber, etc., etc. There are asides on items from The Reader's Digest, on sports- baseball and golf, on husbands and wives, and -- more extensively- the political scene-- the Nixon-Kennedy campaign, the old Eisenhower administration, the new Establishment. McDowell's incidentals are interesting, and it is all easy to pick up, easy to put down reading.
