Douglas has been recognized as a great story-teller since the publication of "Magnificent Obsession" several years ago. Now, after 30 years of study and research, he has produced a superb historical novel about Roman .life and customs during the declining years of the Holy Roman Empire. The story is woven around the life of Marcellus Gallio, a Roman Tribune in command of the Legionaries who crucified Jesus. Christ's robe, which Marcellus won with dice, casts a supernatural spell over its owner and has a mysterious effect on all who come in contact with it. This is an exciting novel set in another terrible era in history. Among the gifts last week was Erskine Caldwell's latest book. "All Day Long." It is a story of guerrilla war behind the German lines. Inthe novel Caldwell shows the relentless courage and the intense hatred of the Russians who are staying on their home soil and taking up the fight against the Nazi invaders. A display of art books w ill be o n exhibit for a week. starting today, at the Base Library. This exhibit is timely because the Army is anxious to present art as a vital par t of the Special Service program. The display consists of books on painting, sculpture, photography and architecture. Among the titles are: Raymond Stiles' "Th e Arts and Man," a book giving the relative growth of man and art; "Un derstanding the Arts," by Helen Gardner, desi_gned to instill an appreciation of fine arts; "Archi tecture Through the Ages"; "Art Masterpieces" and "Modern Art,". by Thomas Craven, the foremost art critic of America; "Painters and Sculptors of Modern Ameri ca" deals especially with the present scene; "U.

Sgt. Asch, .calm and sedate, has applied for Officer's Candidate School in the Censorship branch of the Adjutant Ge. neral's Department, in Washington.
