He is shown with his wife about to leave the Japanese Thiesmeyers to Spend Holidays in Virginia 450 Pupils to Take Part hi Little Chute Program "ENCHANTERS NIGHTSHADE" by Anne Bridges. Upper class Italian society in the first decade of the twentieth century is the subject of Ann Bridge' latest novel "Enchanters Nightshade." Readers who enjoyed "Pek-in Picnic" and "Illyrian Spring" will be delighted to find that the author has surpassed even the high literary standard which the set her preceding novels. Miss Bridges has the rare ability to expound her plot without detracting from the reader's interest in her characterizations.

In her creation of the old Marchesa who attains her one hundredth birthday in the final pages of this highly intriguing book, the author has introduced into contemporary literature a vital and most convincing individual. Kind, worldly-wise, tolerant, seeing thru the petty shams and affectations of those around her, she yet has the wisdom and patience to permit her large family circle to work out their own destinies without interference from her, until that interference is requested, as it is. She ha.s lived long enough to know that time settles most of our problems and cures our heart aches. It is interesting to note that upper i class Italians hold the family unit in as great reverence as do the Chinese. They will make any sacrifices to preserve its integrity and cohesion.

And when a son or daughter is contemplating marriage the various mcmbora of the Villa d' Alta clan assemble from far and near to discuss the wisdom of the proposed union. Should scandal raise its ugly head within the family circle no effort will be spared to conceal the fact from the outside world, even when the sacrifice entails the life of one of its members. Realistic Picture The picture Miss Bridges paints of the Italian peasantry: dirty, dishonest, sensual and lazy, is realistic in the extreme and would raise the blood pressure of Mussolini to the danger point, should he ever read the book. The author has lived so long among the Italians that she knows these volatile and unstable people better than they know themselves. The story concerns the large Villa d'Alta family who have moved as usual to their summer castles in the hills above Rome during the sultry summer months.

In one of these ancient and beautiful castles live the old Marchesa whom everyone loves and respects, her beautiful daughter-in-law, Suzy, married to the Marchesa's eldest son, and thirty years the senior of the flirtatious Suzy) and their fifteen-year-old daughter. Marietta, who is just beginning to suspect the liaison between her mother and the widower, Don Carlo, a cousin who lives in another of the nearby castles with his son and daughter. In yet another one of the castles in the neighborhood dwells another cousin Roffredg twenty-six, handsome, rich, clever, unscrupulous where women ate involved, and a temptation to all the women-attached or unattached, with whom he comes in contact. Into this sophisticated social atmosphere comes Almina Prestwich a lovely, unsophisticated English blond of twenty-two. Because of her father's recent death and the subsequent loss of much of their money, Almina has been obliged to seek a position as governess.

In this emotionally overcharged social circle, with attractive and hot blooded young men in hordes around her, it is not long before Almina forgets her long cheruhed Victor taa Inhibition. Complications pi's up b'I events happen fast ani furiously. Not until the final page does cne suspect the outcome of this involved situation. That out-come however is inevitable and highly satisfactory.
