THE PONCHATOULA TIMES AUGUST 11,1983 PAGE THREE Art, Music, Photography, Literature, Reviews +;, The Book World Learning to classify answers It looks simple, but classification isn't as easy as apple pie. For example, in the supermarket, soft drinks are arranged on shelves by brand, flavor (lime, orange, cherry), by size (quarts, pints), by number (six-packs, eight-packs), and by type of container (can, bottle). How does a child learn to classify things? You help her. Almost every minute of the day, she hears and sees you using the idea of same and different that underlies all classifica- tion.

By JOYCE BATES You can always remember What you would rather forget By BROOX SLEDGE Brisk, little books are coming off the presses of St. Martin's Publishers with the rapidity of bullets from a Gaffing gun and the beauty of it is the books are uniformly good reading. Right now, four titles specifically await your pleasure. There's "Bitter Finish," by LJnda Barnes; "Death Stalk," by Richard Grindal; "The Cheshire Cat's Eye," by Marcia Muller; and "The Stallion Man," by Judith Glarer. All are calculated to put you under their spell. "Bitter Finish' is an expert job, finely written, loca]ed in the Napa Valley wine country. Michael Sprague. from a wealthy Boston family, is a former private eye having , turned movie actor. And now he's going to play a private eye on the screen, and in addition he's a partner in a going wine concern (shades of TV's Falcon Crest) and when his associate and the wine business get , into deep water (well. wine) he has to drop everything to help her. A refreshing lilt to an old story formula. "'Death Stalk" is about yet another spot of drinking beverage, this time Scotch whisky'. An American scholar .. Child at work on his university thesis gets llfJ' involved in a peculiar murder on a small island off the coast of Scot- land l--le's so stewed he's not sure if he did the killing. And if he did or didn't, you'll enjoy it It evokes the salt spray and sombre skies of the Scottish moors and coasts. "'The Cheshire Cat's Eye" involves a San Francisco private dick named Sharon McCone and involves equally San Francisco architectural figures as well as racial tensions which must gingerly be handled. You may think you have it all figured out, even the outcome of the confrontation at the end, but don't take any bets on it. The balmy style of the author carries the reader on interesting slants from beginning to end. As for "The Stallion Man." l just don't know if I have ever before read a book with the protagonist a man who takes stallions around to farms to present other farm owners with a mare heavy with foal once his faith- ful stallion has performed his duties. The stallion men and their great Shire horses were welcome visitors to the villages of Victorian England-- welcome not only to farmers with mares for breeding, but also to the these questions, process of learning r things--to distinguish alike and how they Ys classifying things, We classify things day, automatically. this skill early to Growing Child, development new- We all do.

The course, Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP), is a national program which has met with great success and was adopted as a good means of getting parents into a position of positively directing children prior to delinquent activity, Mrs. Smyth said. The course is an eight-week course and the classes are free to the community. If participants wish to keep the course handbook this can be done at a cost of $5.50, she added. About two hours per week are required in classes. A place and times for the classes will be set when enough parents register for the pro- gram, she added. A maximum number of 10 will be established in the first class and parents interested in scheduling the program should call Mrs. Smyth at either 542-8693, or leave a message if there is no answer at that number with the operator at the various sheriff's department numbers. Mrs. Smyth was hired under a federal Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention grant administered by the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Carlminal Justice. lonely women of the isolated tarm communities. "The Stallion Man," by Judith Glarer. grabs you quick and is ruggedly masculine. Set in rural Victorian England, the novel features the lovely Rachel. who is married to the moralistic clergyman. Esmond Bates. Esmond. twice her age. has had a rigid background which has made him celibate. Unfulfilled Rachel is soon the object of many men's desires, including farmer George Bashford. not to mention the stallion man himself. Frank Morgan. When the stallion man attempts to seduce Rachel. a tragedy is set in motion. This refreshingly, frank novel deals with both spiritual and physical temptations and sexual repression in oldtime England. THE STOP SMOKING DIET A new book from M. Evans and Co.. "The Stop Smoking Diet," takes a new direction in the ever-escalating fight against the little thin, white stick of tobacco which causes long- term suicide or murder, depending upon just how you fix your gaze upon It. The basis of the program is very simple. Nicotine is the addictive element in cigarettes. Diets that are high in acid-forming foods (espe- cially meat. poultry and fish) lead to more rapid elimination of nicotine from the system w!)ereas diets made up largely of base-forming foods (such as vegetables, fruits and milk products) cause the body to release nicotine more slowly. As a result, the smoker on the base-forming diet craves a cigarette less often and is better able to control the impulse to light up.
