Lawrence Brooks Hays (August 9, 1898 October 11, 1981) was a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from the State of Arkansas and former President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Brooks Hays was born in London, Pope County, Arkansas, on August 9, 1898. He attended public schools in Russellville, Arkansas. Hays served in the United States Army in 1918. After leaving the service he earned a degree from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville in 1919. He attended law school at George Washington University, becoming a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity, earning his law degree in 1922, after which he was admitted to the bar. Hays returned to Russellville and opened a private law practice. Hays served as assistant attorney general of Arkansas from 1925 to 1927. He served as a Democratic National committeeman for Arkansas from 19321939. With the arrival of the New Deal, Hays was appointed as a labor compliance officer for the National Recovery Administration in Arkansas in 1934. He served as assistant to the administrator of resettlement in 1935 and held administrative and legal positions in the Farm Security Administration from 1936-1942. Hays ran for the United States House of Representatives and was elected to the Seventy-eighth. Hays was reelected seven times and served from January 3, 1943 January 3, 1959. In 1953, Hays sponsored House Resolution 60, to create within the Capitol building, "a place of retreat as an encouragement to prayer." This followed a trend of religious legislation which had manifested the previous year in the establishment of the National Day of Prayer, and would continue in following years with the insertion of the words "under God" into the Pledge of Allegiance (1954), and the addition of "In God We Trust" to the national currency (1955). 1953 also saw the inception of the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, later renamed the National Prayer Breakfast, an event sponsored by International Christian Leadership, also known as The Family (Christian political organization). Hays, whom the Washington Posts Drew Pearson described in a June 20, 1954 column as "one of the foremost experts in psychological warfare against communism," used his evangelical connections to help build a Christian conservative consensus in favor of the aggressive internationalism The Family called "Militant Liberty," an approach favored by internationalist Republicans and conservative Democrats.

Bright jacket with some rubbing. From Farris's latest collection consists of a short story, a novelette and a novel. The clever, if predictable, story, "The Odor of Violets," tells of an author who steals another's brilliant unpublished manuscript on the day of its creator's death. The thief publishes the novel under his own name and basks in glory until the dead man's muse cooks up a nasty bit of poetic justice. The novelette, "Horrorshow," is a good deal better, even if the ending isn't totally credible. Concerning the murder of a girl and the discovery of her murderer by a psychic who is himself accused of the crime, it is full of original characters and memorable moments. The novel, The Guardians, is set in the early '60s and bears evidence of having been written then, before Farris became proficient at the craft. The pace is leaden and the plot unnecessarily complicated; the effect is tedious. Altogether, a very uneven collection. 1988 These three stories by well-known horror novelist Farris are neither gripping nor memorable. "The Odor of Violets" is a predictable moral tale about an author who, having stolen a dying man's novel, receives his supernatural comeuppance. In "The Guardian," a governor's son narrowly escapes death after a series of "accidents"; he is supposedly being victimized by his father's political and personal adversaries. In the most original of the three, drifter Hero Flynn is framed for the murder of a small-town girl in "Horrorshow." This story contains some needed levity: the dead girl appears to Hero, telling him how to avenge her while painting her ghostly nails a pretty shade of pink for her funeral. Not recommended. A.M.B.

From Publishers Weekly As ominous and as skillful in its creation of dialect as his The Buffalo Tree, Rapp's dystopian adventure may be too hermetic to welcome a wide readership. The earth is rapidly decaying and is being assaulted by poison rains; brutal soldiers control what is left of the population by murdering the weak, sterilizing women and enslaving all orphans under the age of 12. Through luck and another character's perception that she is ''special,'' Whensday, one of the luckier Undertwelves, manages to escape the fate of the Digit Kids who are worked to death in the Pits. She meets up with two fellow fugitives: Honeycut, a slow-witted 19-year-old who is sculpting a life-size elephant out of bits of foil, and Oakley, a younger orphan who awakens Whensday's maternal instincts as well as her sexuality. Glimmers of hope are few and far between and almost always undercut by frustratingly grim ironies. For example, Honeycut gets stoned to death after trying to save Whensday from a rapist. The bleak landscape is made even more difficult to comprehend by Whensday's impoverished language (''The Babymakers got a life hole where the Lost Men go lay''). Otherwise very well crafted, this story lacks a strong resolution; having exerted themselves to reach the finish line, readers may feel frustrated by the tentative ending. Ages 12-up. (Nov.) Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Grade 9 Up-Whensday, 11, lives near the Pits and not far from the Shelf, among the Bone Trees with Tick Burrowman, who makes body boxes for the children dying daily as a result of their underground forced labor. This polluted dystopia is undeniably brutal, dark, and grim. The acid rain is so strong it burns ungreased skin. Children are bought or bartered for by the wealthy and powerful. Whensday strikes out on her own, is raped, and sees her friend Joe Painter die when their attempt to escape across the river fails. She rails against God and finds no one to hear her prayers. The matter-of-fact first-person narrative is intense, devoid of quotation marks, and larded with descriptive slang such as ''dooks'' (excrement), ''dinker'' (penis), and ''bloody jellyfishes'' (her menstrual flow) that will challenge readers. It credibly communicates the innocence/ignorance and self-centeredness of Whensday and her community of outcasts. Amid the debris, the children develop friendships, experience love, share first kisses, and find occasional humor. While the subject matter is wretched, Rapp's ''future speak'' becomes almost melodic while describing events, feelings, and actions that are raw, searing, violent, and frightening. Less successful is the author's development of this future world. Other than establishing that it is cruel, ugly, and difficult, there is little sense of place for readers to get a hold of and many will give up in frustration. Yet for those readers who can bear to finish this novel, there is a positive message: despite all odds, survival, even in these worst of circumstances, is possible. Joel Shoemaker, Southeast Jr. High School, Iowa City, IA Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Envisioning a nightmarish future in which children deemed small or otherwise defective are worked to death breaking rocks, and the constant rain is so acid it raises blisters, Rapp (Buffalo Tree, 1997) crafts another lurid shocker. Learning that the coffin maker who has housed her is about to sell her off, 11-year-old Whensday, also known as ``33'' for the tattoo on her arm, sneaks away. Cataloging the disease, excrement, blood, vomit, mutations, slime, and general filth with matter-of-fact bluntness, she takes temporary shelter from the rain with Honeycut, a huge, dimwitted teenager; tries to escape with another fugitive who dies of ebola-like Blackfrost; is raped by an officer of the brutal local militia; and sees Honeycut stoned to death for killing the man. Whensday tells her tale in a colorful idiolect, mixing dreams and scatological exchanges with Oakley, a tough-talking younger friend. Certain she's about to die since she can't stop vomiting, Whensday is rescued by a hidden community of women who clean her up and tell her she's pregnanta happy ending, under the circumstances. Often gripping, sometimes blackly funny in a squalid way, this will remind readers of Russell Hoban's Ridley Walker (1980) and other tales of post-apocalyptic devastation.

Product Description The Copper Elephant is the riveting story of 11-year-old Whensday, who lives in The Shelf, a postapocalyptic world of nonstop poisonous rain ruled by the ruthless Aston Loe and his Syndicate men. Whensday is saved from the slave labor of the Pits by a coffin maker who intends to sell her to a childless matron from Top Town. Whensday flees into the Bone Trees. There she meets two other ''undertwelves'' - Oakley and Honeycut - and, banding together, they learn about love, strength, loss, and survival. The Copper Elephant is surreal, full of compelling action and memorable characters. As in his previous novel, The Buffalo Tree, Adam Rapp's language is original, vivid, and powerful. About the Author Adam Rapp is a playwright as well as a novelist. His work has been produced and developed by the New York Theatre Workshop, the Steppenwolf Theater Company, New York City's Public Theatre, and The Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference. Mr. Rapp lives in New York City. The Buffalo Tree is his second novel. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title., Front Street imprint of Boyds Mills Press, 1999-11-03

This is my last hope, because I am desperate. Desperately in love with you and desperate to understand what happened.So begins the passionate letter Cassie Armstrong finds hidden among her grandmother's quilting supplies. It's signed with the mysterious initials F.B. and Cassie has no idea who that is. It's certainly not her grandfather, Henry, a man more comfortable with actions than with words.Learning that her grandmother, whom she's always seen as somewhat conventional, might have had a secret love sends Cassie on a quest to find F.B. But doing that means raising questions about Lydia and Henry—and about Cassie's own relationship with her fiancé, Cooper Lynch. Questions Cassie might not be ready to face. Because if Henry isn't the love of Lydia's life, maybe Cooper isn't the right man for Cassie, either. But love, like the letter, will end up surprising Cassie in more ways than she might expect… Series includes 1 Cardillo, Linda Dancing on Sunday Afternoons Feb-2007 2 Gold, Kristi Fall From Grace Feb-2007 3 Early, Margot The Depth of Love Mar-2007 4 Jones, Eleanor A Heartbeat Away Mar-2007 5 Bockoven, Georgia If I'd Never Known Your Love Apr-2007 6 Quinn, Tara Taylor The Night We Met Apr-2007 7 Arnold, Judith The Marriage Bed May-2007 8 McDermid, Tessa Family Stories May-2007 9 Kent, Lynnette The Scrapbook Jun-2007 10 Kilby, Joan When Love Is True Jun-2007 11 Blackwell, Elizabeth The Letter Jul-2007 12 Browning, Pamela Snapshots Jul-2007 13 Fox, Roz Denny A Secret To Tell You Aug-2007 14 Smith, Karen Rose The Bracelet Aug-2007 15 Casper, Ken Upstairs At Miss Hattie's Sep-2007 16 DeFee, Ann Summer After Summer Sep-2007 17 Jacobs, Holly The House On Briar Hill Road Oct-2007 18 Raxten, Judith The Secret Dreams Of Emily Porter Oct-2007 19 Barrett, Linda The Soldier And The Rose Nov-2007 20 Krotow, Geri A Rendezvous To Remember Nov-2007 21 Johnson, Janice Kay Christmas Presents And Past Dec-2007 22 Early, Margot A Spirit Of Christmas Dec-2007 23 Schmidt, Anna This Side Of Heaven Jan-2008 24 Winters, Rebecca The Vow Jan-2008, Front Street imprint of Boyds Mills Press, 1999-11-03.

The earth is rapidly decaying and is being assaulted by poison rains; brutal soldiers control what is left of the population by murdering the weak, sterilizing women and enslaving all orphans under the age of 12. Through luck and another character's perception that she is ''special,'' Whensday, one of the luckier Undertwelves, manages to escape the fate of the Digit Kids who are worked to death in the Pits. She meets up with two fellow fugitives: Honeycut, a slow-witted 19-year-old who is sculpting a life-size elephant out of bits of foil, and Oakley, a younger orphan who awakens Whensday's maternal instincts as well as her sexuality. Glimmers of hope are few and far between and almost always undercut by frustratingly grim ironies. For example, Honeycut gets stoned to death after trying to save Whensday from a rapist. The bleak landscape is made even more difficult to comprehend by Whensday's impoverished language (''The Babymakers got a life hole where the Lost Men go lay''). Otherwise very well crafted, this story lacks a strong resolution; having exerted themselves to reach the finish line, readers may feel frustrated by the tentative ending. Ages 12-up. (Nov.) Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Grade 9 Up-Whensday, 11, lives near the Pits and not far from the Shelf, among the Bone Trees with Tick Burrowman, who makes body boxes for the children dying daily as a result of their underground forced labor. This polluted dystopia is undeniably brutal, dark, and grim. The acid rain is so strong it burns ungreased skin. Children are bought or bartered for by the wealthy and powerful. Whensday strikes out on her own, is raped, and sees her friend Joe Painter die when their attempt to escape across the river fails. She rails against God and finds no one to hear her prayers. The matter-of-fact first-person narrative is intense, devoid of quotation marks, and larded with descriptive slang such as ''dooks'' (excrement), ''dinker'' (penis), and ''bloody jellyfishes'' (her menstrual flow) that will challenge readers. It credibly communicates the innocence/ignorance and self-centeredness of Whensday and her community of outcasts. Amid the debris, the children develop friendships, experience love, share first kisses, and find occasional humor. While the subject matter is wretched, Rapp's ''future speak'' becomes almost melodic while describing events, feelings, and actions that are raw, searing, violent, and frightening. Less successful is the author's development of this future world. Other than establishing that it is cruel, ugly, and difficult, there is little sense of place for readers to get a hold of and many will give up in frustration. Yet for those readers who can bear to finish this novel, there is a positive message: despite all odds, survival, even in these worst of circumstances, is possible. Joel Shoemaker, Southeast Jr. High School, Iowa City, IA Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Envisioning a nightmarish future in which children deemed small or otherwise defective are worked to death breaking rocks, and the constant rain is so acid it raises blisters, Rapp (Buffalo Tree, 1997) crafts another lurid shocker. Learning that the coffin maker who has housed her is about to sell her off, 11-year-old Whensday, also known as ``33'' for the tattoo on her arm, sneaks away. Cataloging the disease, excrement, blood, vomit, mutations, slime, and general filth with matter-of-fact bluntness, she takes temporary shelter from the rain with Honeycut, a huge, dimwitted teenager; tries to escape with another fugitive who dies of ebola-like Blackfrost; is raped by an officer of the brutal local militia; and sees Honeycut stoned to death for killing the man. Whensday tells her tale in a colorful idiolect, mixing dreams and scatological exchanges with Oakley, a tough-talking younger friend. Certain she's about to die since she can't stop vomiting, Whensday is rescued by a hidden community of women who clean her up and tell her she's pregnanta happy ending, under the circumstances. Often gripping, sometimes blackly funny in a squalid way, this will remind readers of Russell Hoban's Ridley Walker (1980) and other tales of post-apocalyptic devastation.

Product Description The Copper Elephant is the riveting story of 11-year-old Whensday, who lives in The Shelf, a postapocalyptic world of nonstop poisonous rain ruled by the ruthless Aston Loe and his Syndicate men. Whensday is saved from the slave labor of the Pits by a coffin maker who intends to sell her to a childless matron from Top Town. Whensday flees into the Bone Trees. There she meets two other ''undertwelves'' - Oakley and Honeycut - and, banding together, they learn about love, strength, loss, and survival. The Copper Elephant is surreal, full of compelling action and memorable characters. As in his previous novel, The Buffalo Tree, Adam Rapp's language is original, vivid, and powerful. About the Author Adam Rapp is a playwright as well as a novelist. His work has been produced and developed by the New York Theatre Workshop, the Steppenwolf Theater Company, New York City's Public Theatre, and The Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference. Mr. Rapp lives in New York City. The Buffalo Tree is his second novel. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title., Front Street imprint of Boyds Mills Press, 1999-11-03
