In each month's heavy mail there are always a fewscore “ fiction-squawkers,” who can t figure out the story endings. Either despite, or as a result of, our explanation of ESQUIRE’S fiction policy, we’ve had more yowls anent the endings of our stories this month than last.

A Fair Warning on the Fiction

Now after the success of our little lecture on fiction we think we’d better explain the illustration policy. Then perhaps you’ll quit kicking about the fiction and start picking on the illustrations. (Getting to know some of you pretty well, hey?) But first we’ll give you a break on this month’s fiction. The following stories have definite endings: A Shot in the Forest, Tony Takes to the Parement, Henry Takes a Holiday, Rice Pudding cold, Larky charm, and The Machines.

A Word About Illustrations

[no value]
About the illustrations, then. They’re almost always small, and they’re almost never illustrative. They aim not at the definite illustration of the text alongside which they appear, but at a translation, into pictorial terms, of its general mood or tone. This, too, is something of a departure, at least among large circulation magazines, where the trend seems to be toward larger and larger illustrations.

Sometime ago I wrote telling you I had invented a “Pickpoeket-Proof-Pocket” and for which l had a patent pending. Since then, I have made many efforts to invite the interest of Clothing Manufacturers in this pocket, but to no avail. Having in mind that your splendid magazine is devoted to “STYLUS” in men’s clothing, I have hit upon an idea which may be of some interest in stimulating subscriptions to your magazine.

When Coronet made Manuel Komroff famous, a lot of people thought (and we know some who still do) that it was a foreign novel, a translation from the Russian. But Manuel Komroff was born on East 54th Street, New York. He went to Yale and says ain’t—perhaps just a reflex.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY
<p>THERE is a heavy norther blowing; the gulf is too rough to fish and there is no shooting now. When you are through work it is nearly dark and you can ride out on the boulevard by the sea and throw clay targets with a hand trap against this gale and they will dip and jump and rise into strange angles like a jacksnipe in the wind.</p>

THE train pulled in at the small country station. Hermine followed her husband out through the car and watched him as he jumped down the steps and waited to help her down. He was tall, slim and straight, in spite of his snow-white hair; now he lifted his hands to Hermine with a solemn tenderness which always enchanted her.

GEORGE JEAN NATHAN
ALL things considered, I take it that no one will be so unobservantly presumptuous as to deny that, dollar for dollar of investment in personal appearance, men on the average present a very much more sightly spectacle than women. Devoting perhaps one-tenth of their time and thought, if that, to a matter that occupies the major part of a woman’s existence, they so far outdistance the assiduous other sex that the odiousness of comparison is amply made up for by the fundamental truth.

THE war, it has been said, was won on the cricket fields of England, a statement which puzzles an observer who is of the opinion that the armed tanks, the machineguns and the infantry might at least have been given credit for an assist. Cricket undoubtedly is played to some extent in England, but it is by no means the only sport which finds favor in British eyes.

THEY’VE had his obituary standing for ten years in every newspaper office— no gambler would bet, at any odds, on his lasting out last season or the season before—and yet he moves in on the Florida nightscape as a one-man invasion, grabbing off all the glamorous girls, putting up the kind of competition that nobody else can touch, and leaving all the rest of us—all the rest of us who are so lighthearted (and light-pocketed), so foot-loose (and purse-bound)—our choice of those Florida widows who currently assay about nine and a half cents a dozen.

THE fierce hard winter of 1919 has left a very vivid picture in my mind, and one that I’ll never forget. I was ridin’ for the Rafter Two (ˆ) Outfit on the upper Beaver Creek, this range bein’ located in the northern part of Wyoming. The thermometer was a-hangin’ twenty-three below, the wind was a-blowin’ hard and it was cuttin’ like a knife.

A GOOD many connoisseurs of hockey, for reasons that have never been quite clear to me—and I am a member of their school, too—concentrate pretty much on watching the work of the defense men. Perhaps it is because, like some aficionados of bull-fighting, they are interested chiefly in certain matters of hockey style, or it may be—and more likely—because they have the same kind of mentality as those persons who never play bridge but always work bridge problems.

THIS was the winter of our discontent. There were rumblings and grumblings at the Front and even among the café strategists who fought our battles on the marble table tops with saucers, spoons and burnt matches. Two schools formed, one which believed that there was nothing being done, that the British had not carried the Somme offensive far enough, that we should, when the Bocho onslaught at Verdun had been definitely stopped, have turned to the offensive and exploited our victory.

Skiing: Swiss Style

HARRY TIPPER
IT IS necessary to be quite meticulous in discussing skiing as practiced in Switzerland. Between numerous English and Germans, amateurs of the sport, every phase of it has been thoroughly conventionalized. There are correct names for each department; each turn has its proper method, place of use and name (and pronunciation, as: shee-ing, shee-yoring for ski-joring, but not, of course, shee-yumping.)

MANUEL KOMIIOFF
THE captain was still drinking tea with his orderly. Revolution, you see, brings all men down to the same level. Of our odd detachment of men stationed here to watch the Tsar and his royal family, prisoners in the fortress of Ekaterinburg, three had told their stories: the Beetle, who had climbed up the wall of a prison cell twice a day for four years to keep out of the tide; John, who had spent a year on the Roumanian front, without sufficient arms or any food but raw horsemeat and cabbage; the Philosopher, who had lived a lifetime in a moment, the moment of his execution when his sentence was ironically changed to life imprisonment.

YOU need a strong stomach in Spain, plenty of curiosity, and a vivid appreciation of the bizarre; and it is wise not to be too squeamish. “No omelette is really complete without a fly or two in it,” says the old Castilian proverb. Spanish cooking prides itself on disorderliness and bulk.

THE MAN WHO RECLAIMED HIS HEAD: Important for its attack on munitions manufacturers, as well as for the concise and powerful performance by Claude Rains, who here at last appears in a sympathetic role. The story is of a ghost writer who takes literal vengeance upon the man who has betrayed his ideas; the writer, on leave from the war which he sought to prevent, and which the “name” for whom he wrote helped perpetrate, takes off the head of his “identity.”
