TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE
Shadows on the Baltic
T ithuania, "Latvia, and Estonia, tiny agricultural republics of little
J-Jeconomic importance* are nevertheless the new powder-kegs of
"Europe. It is more than likely that these countries mil shortly
be in the news and in this story of a journey it is possible to get a very clear
picture of the 'Baltic countries and their people and customs.

The Saga of a Rubber Planter in the Malay Jungle
ce l\/fad Yank" is what the Englishmen in Singapore called the young
J-V-L^American who landed there in search of adventure with $1.40 in
his pockets, and* thanks to his good marksmanship and some
experience in handling men, within a week found a job as manager of a
rubber plantation in Pahang, on the Malay 'Peninsula.
His experiences on this plantation and, later, as manager of two others
in northern Jahore and on the Straits of Sumatra, make a powerful and
exciting story. He makes one feel the %est, the thrill—often the shiver—
of his hairbreadth escapes from tigers, elephants, pythons, cobras, and
other denizens of the jungle. "Demy 8vo. los* 6d.

The Russian Trials
TU^alter Duranty, famous correspondent of "The New York Times"
rv and the most experienced of all Moscow correspondents,, is writing a
vivid, colourful., and personal account of the Moscow Trials from
1921 to 1938. It would be impossible for the author of that entrancing
and widely read book., "I Write as I Please", to write a dullline^ and in this
important book past dramas of Soviet law live again. Dewy Sw. i or. 6d.
