Transcript BOOK REVIEWS (Continued from Page 27) a job he had to do, a warning of trouble ahead and a promise of sympathy and support. "Maybe it's none ol nrj business, Paul," be said, "bul the fronl office is in a tizzy. Some advertiser called up this morning and raised hell about you." ■'What have I done now?" Paul asked. McCarten tossed a clipping from thai day's \t-u York Times across the desk. Ii was a story aboul the Rosselli case and two names had been underlined in blue pencil Castelar*s and Vnnanelle Sherman's. The Times -ton went into considerable detail on whal Paul had told Simon Lazarus. There were several unattributed and interpretive quotes making wi\ pointed reference to what certain people in the city governmenl thought of busybodj newspapermen who smeared innocenl people. There was an Associated Press inserl from Washington quoting a Supreme Court Justice who deplored the murder of Rosselli because it would feed hysterical fears and strengthen tlit- hand ol witch-hunting legislators. Paul read the storj carefully and thru laid the clipping down on McCarten's desk. "I- the Old Man mad al me?" he asked. "No," -aiii McCarten, "he's not mad, he's just puzzled. The advertiser told him that if Slant staffers had no better way to occupy their time than h> destroying the reputation nf a woman as fine as Annabelle Sherman, tvell, he'd take his advertising elsewhere. The (thi Man wants to know what it'- all about. T tohl him you were on your own time, hut he's -till worried." "There's no point in asking who the advertiser is." '*There*s mt point," McCarten answered, "mostly because I don'l know myself." It was tin.- oh! squeeze pla} tin* respectable and powerful doing the work ••[ the disreputable .ind dangerous.
