JOHN DOS PASSOS
CHARLEY ANDERSON lay in his bunk in a glary red buzz: Oh Titine...damn that tune last night. His head was full of voices and champagny fizzle and Mrs. Johnson&rsquo;s long hazel eyes and her singysweet tones: the French are so much wiser. He lay flat with his eyes hot; the tongue in his mouth was thick warm sour felt.

The New Leisure
What it means in terms of the opportunity to learn the art of living, as told to S. J. Woolf
[no value]
[no value]
NICHOLAS MURRAY BUTLER
ONE of the most obvious objects of life is to learn how to live. That means two things: first, that you must make life physically possible by such compensated effort as will provide the necessities of physical existence and comfort for yourself and those dependent on you; and second, that you will seek to find and to make opportunity to use your human capabilities and abilities in larger and non-material ways and fashions, both for your own satisfaction and for the good of your kind.

MORLEY CALLAGHAN
ALICE kept on returning to the window. Standing with her short straight nose pressed against the window pane, she watched the rain falling and the sidewalk shining under the street light. In her black crepe dress with the big white nunlike collar and with her black hair drawn back tight from her narrow nervous face she looked almost boldly handsome.

CHARLES HANSON TOWNE
IN the dear, dead days, when we had Sherry&rsquo;s and Delmonico&rsquo;s in all their golden glory; when the old Cafe Martin with its glittering rooms stood near Madison Square in New York, and the jeunesse dor&eacute;e of the town helter-skeltered here and there with lovely ladies on their arms, and whisked them into hansom cabs&mdash;those &ldquo;two-wheeled heavens,&rdquo; as a mid-Victorian poet called them&mdash;our city might have been a beautiful hell, but it was also, to most of us in our carefree youth, a glowing suburb of Paradise.

IT was the custom of Richard Carola to lunch every day at the Stella D&rsquo;Italia, an upstairs restaurant in the middle of the busiest business street of Naples. He worked in the office of an American insurance company, but he looked very much like a young poet who was also an athlete, and he was capable of great sentiment.

GEORGE ADE
<p>NEARLY every invention is just the beginning of an argument, especially if the inventor is a Yankee. The school books say that Fulton figured out the steamboat, but after he got his little craft to chugging up and down the Hudson, up jumps an Englishman who said that he built a steamboat and operated it, years before, and he was only too sorry that all the witnesses who had seen him do it were dead and gone.</p>

If the figures is 36 for Jefferson to Georgia&rsquo;s 0, don&rsquo;t blink, because it won&rsquo;t be no misprint. Ask Lou Little or Monk Younger or any of them coaches we&rsquo;ve taken over the bumps this fall, and they&rsquo;ll all tell you we&rsquo;re just a one-man team.

IT is hard for the layman to understand how a champion in any sport can go to pieces all at once. Sometimes it is due to a lack of condition. But not often. The man who loses his title is generally as physically fit as his successor. But he is seldom as mentally keen.

MONTAGUE GLASS
TAKING the United States by and large, there are two kinds of married men: those who are scared of their wives and those who lie about it. I have belonged to both classes for twenty-six years, and therefore feel competent to express an opinion either way, which is not often the case in advisory articles, for if you have read such warnings to potential criminals as You Can&#39;t Win, you may have noticed that the book was written by a prison warden, who had never himself been a convict.

THAT quaint and almost forgotten experiment, Prohibition, has two triumphs to its credit and they are very much alike: Prohibition &ldquo;destroyed&rdquo; the saloon and Prohibition &ldquo;destroyed&rdquo; burlesque; or in plain English, Prohibition sent the saloon underground into the speakeasy and sent burlesque uptown (artistically speaking) into revues.

Down at the Morgue The unwanted dead, Named and nameless, Are put to bed: Laid out neat And stretched out nice, Cooling their feet On a cake of ice. Down at the Morgue There&rsquo;s no depression. The dead men march In a mute procession, Day and night The dead men march, Their mouths shut tight And stiff as starch.

IN THE cellar of the Hotel du Beaune&mdash;which is the cellar in the hotel of the fair province of Burgundy&mdash;they tell this story in the language of rolling eyes, raised shoulders and waving hands. It seems that some three summers ago a celebrated connoisseur of vintages, a peerless local gentleman named Marcel Duprez, fell victim of an automobile accident while on his way to attend the XXXVII Congress of Vineyardists of France in the city of Dijon.

IT was early Autumn in the Bois, during that lazy period in the afternoon when nursemaids congregate to gossip and the children stop playing long enough to eat their bread and chocolate. Earlier in the day a coquettish Autumn shower had dampened the fallen leaves and an indecisive breeze had scattered them indiscriminately over the myriad pathways and wide stretches of grass that separated rows of stately, fading chestnut trees.

IT is impossible to over-emphasize the importance of soft rough fabrics in any consideration of clothes for campus wear. The popularity of rougher cloths in browns and Lovats, both in tweeds of the Harris type and in the soft handling homespuns, Shetlands and Saxonies is universal among the better dressed members of the fashion setting groups of upper classmen at Princeton and Yale.

BOBBY JONES
BY way of introducing this discussion of putting, I think I ought to say that there is great danger in adopting a method that is too nearly fixed and immutable. Too often a man who attempts to copy each detail of the style of someone else, or who tries to develop his own method according to rigid specifications, finds himself entirely tied up by the tension of his position.

IN the late Spring of 1916 I walked into the Dome one evening just after dinner. I had not had anything to do except send propaganda junk over to my paper. In a casual way I was keeping my eyes and ears open for the newcomers to the Quarter and defeatist talk that they emitted but I had no special assignment.

NOW that the renascence of the tailcoat has put the dinner jacket back in its place, restoring its true status as a strictly informal garment, every effort is being put forth to make it at least as comfortable as the business suit. Imagine a shirt front that doesn&rsquo;t bulge, a collar that doesn&rsquo;t bind, a coat that&rsquo;s easy-fitting and a &ldquo;weskit&rdquo; that doesn&rsquo;t constrict.

WHEN Little Buttercup, that mystic lady, remarked that things are seldom what they seem, and added the information that skim milk masquerades as cream and jackdaws strut in peacocks&rsquo; feathers, she might well have had prophetic reference to a state of affairs which would have scandalized her creator, good Sir William Gilbert.

A LOT of aspersions have been cast upon college education in the last decade or so. Idealists with new-fangled theories about education have declared that all a boy gets in college is a bunch of facts which don&rsquo;t mean much and which he forgets as soon as possible anyway.

Warm in a chalice Far in the palace Of purple light, Stephen lay sleeping, Easily reaping The dreams of night, Wakened for loving, And loving asleep Into a moving Shadow-deep, Winged, with the waters Of lust around him, Glad that the daughters Of Eve had found him, Drifting and drowning, Asleep, awake, And his heart pounding As a heart could break, And so, uneven, Both god and human, Was Stephen, Stephen, First with woman.

DESPITE the fact that the number of Civil War veterans has dwindled to a comparative handful, the majority of American men still seem to be enlisted in some secret army of wearers of blue and grey. Catch the average American in anything but a blue or grey suit and you will detect a trace of the same self-conscious look that is otherwise reserved for those who wear evening clothes on street cars.

PLAIN blue suits will never get you into the headlines as the Brummel of your time, but they do afford the negative approach, as it were, to the state of being well dressed. If you are convinced, or if your wife has convinced you, that your taste in colors is not to be trusted, sticking to plain blue is the most reliable way to get the world from proving it on you.

TOWN clothes, it is apparent, are undergoing many changes. Here we have the omission of cuffs on the trousers and the addition of a ticket pocket placed just below the line at which the draped model gives a slight waist suppression. Cuffs have never been a necessity and have served in the past, aside from their somewhat dubious decorative function, chiefly as collectors of dust, matches and divers odd and various bits of rubbish.

In the top row, reading northeast from the skis, are patent leather French pumps, designed for the somewhat effetely specific purpose of being worn at home with dinner clothes (but they feel just as good with a lounge suit or dressing gown); a pair of Norwegian ski boots, of the square toed hooked top kind worn by experienced ski jumpers; and practical, very comfortable, hard soled slippers of python skin.
