Neither Did Monica: What Do You Suppose She Did About ' It? One of the new books which has been continuously popular for some time Is “ Dark Hester/ by Anne Douglas Sedgwick. It appeals par ­ ticularly to women, because It Is a phsycbological study of the pro ­ verbial mother-in-law and daugh ­ ter-in-law situation. The son Is the only child of a widowed mother, and as Is usual In such cases, es ­ pecially to when the mother has devoted herself only to the child and to earning the living to give him his heart's desires, there Is a very subtle enmeshing bond be ­ tween them. In this case, where the mother represents the not so very old and the son's wife Is the embodiment of the very new In modern women, the antagonism Is nore tragic. Between the old ___ of women and the new there Is such a gulf that it Is Impossible for them to understand one an ­ other's viewpoints. All they can do Is to tolerate end perhaps love each other. But between the new in of the last generation fought for her very radical ldet freedoms, and the new young wo ­ of today with her repudiation II the things that the older dec- is still holding to lingeringly 9 la sharp'.keen combat. These women are both Intelligent, they both really love the son and husband, and what Is harder they Ira to understand each other. Tney analyze themselves and each Dther. and It Is only when the uatlon reaches a point whera all petty things drop away and only the heights of real feeling remain is there a compromise, and some attempt at mutual reconciliation. The book Is a trifle long, but •ver dull. It Is written with In ­ sight .and sympathy, and makes most pleasant reading for a sum- week-end. It can be obtained e White Plains Public Library.

A survey of the situation at ths present time indicates that these two additional cells should be provided The number of arrests, and deten ­ tions are such that. In order to avoid doubling In the cells, addi ­ tional cells should be provided. The cell.room has not been re ­ painted elnce It was opened and Is ' i need c^lt at the present time. Additional mattresses are needed > there shall be one for each cell; these should be purchased from the State Department of Correction at Albany. 1J Is stated that food Is provided for prisoners from a local restaur ­ ant and the Chief said that the ar ­ rangement for refund on money spent for this purpose is a satisfac ­ tory one. No tramp room has been provided In this building and tramps are giv ­ en lodging in the male cell room — a practice which Is disapproved by the Commission and should not be continued In a city of these size. The Police Department needs ad ­ ditional garage space and there la land which could be utilized rear for this purpose; at th< time, a room for the detention of tramps could be provided in such building. From January 1. 1929. to date there were 888 arrests and 1.082 summonses In this city. During that time, 492 males and 22 females were detained In the jail, and lodg ­ ing was given to 285 tramps. , A matron is on hand when fe ­ male prisoners are detained here. A month to month record of de ­ tentions should be established here and the chief has agreed to have this done. It Is recommended: 1 — That two additional cells be placed In the male cell room cordance with the agreement with the commission when the Jail- first opened. 3 — That ' additional watrrproof- covered matrasses be furnished so that there Is one for each cell an 3 — That the mil: c t! room and cela t>e repainted. 4 — That the city arrange for a tramp lodging room so that the cell room shall not be used for this purpose.
