<p>On page 40 of this issue we shriek Eureka louder than we have yelled it at any time in the last three years. Every month we’ve shouted “Discovery,” and sometimes twice in the same month, and every time we’ve meant it. We’ve meant, that is to say, that we have discovered, among the month’s five hundred or so of manuscripts from unpublished authors, one that we considered publishable both as a performance and as a promise. But this month, with no disrespect to all our Discoveries of these past three years, we find ourselves wishing for a stronger word with which to introduce the first published writing of Pietro di Donato, an almost incredibly talented young Italian bricklayer lately turned author.</p>

<p>My husband accidentally acquired one of the earlier issues of your magazine by buying a new suit<span style="line-height:1.6">—E</span><span style="line-height:1.6">SQUIRE being a bribe, I imagine. At least, I think he got more pleasure out of the magazine than the suit. Somehow or other we just never did get around to buying another, until your issue containing Latins Are Lousy Lovers.</span></p>

RICHARD L. NEUBERGER
EIGHT years ago the most publicized marriage ever to titillate the tabloid-addicts took place at the estate of Dwight W. Morrow in Englewood, New Jersey. Every feature of the event was blazoned across the front pages. All persons blessed with vision, and gifted with the ability to read, knew what the bride, Miss Anne Morrow, ate for breakfast, and approximately how many drops of sweat glistened on the brow of the groom, Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh.

Torso, the Tenth Muse
Murders may seem exciting to you but to a writer of headlines they are boringly alike
[no value]
[no value]
R. B. SULLIVAN
MURDER often is called an art, and from the discerning pens of such as Edmund Pearson, world&rsquo;s foremost authority on the Fall River Horror, it often so emerges. So much has been written of murder, in veins analytical, psychological and polemical, and sometimes for sheer horripilating effect, that there might be added to the nonet of Muses one of Murder, resembling, let us say, a Gorgon, her herpetic locks writhing in gouts of blood and her crimson lips fleering in a hoyden grin.

ROBERT SAUNDERS DOWST
WHEN a major-league baseball-club manager contemplates a purchase or trade of players he estimates the value of the &ldquo;ivory&rdquo; he is about to acquire or discard strictly in the light of what batting averages indicate as to each player&rsquo;s offensive power and what fielding averages have to say on the issue of value on defense.

HAVE you ever known a man you couldn&rsquo;t insult, humiliate, or keep away from you? When I was in the advertising agency and had charge of layouts this man, Lawson Wilks, a free lance commercial artist, came in to see me, looking for work, with all the assurance of a man who expects a warm, fraternal greeting.

THE only correct idea about this sinus business that exists in the minds of most people is that it&rsquo;s bad stuff to have around. Grandmaws&rsquo; back-fence consultations and medical fakirs have so garbled the picture that now mere mention of the word causes the knees of strong men to tremble and makes the widders turn on a fresh burst of tears.

JOSEPH FELDMAN
OLIN JENNINGS had certain charms which none of the thousand odd males of the white town of Eastchester, Vermont, fully appreciated. But the fourteen women to whom an extraordinary thing was to happen considered him a man of rare parts. Not that Olin liked women.

THE ship is climbing fast, for there are only two of you aboard. In the front cockpit you look out by green painted struts along square feet of shiny cowling. The motor is spinning the steel propellor eighteen hundred and fifty revolutions per minute.

JON EDGAR WEBB
IT WAS two-thirty in the morning and the idiot in cell 33, the end cell on range five, was sitting at the foot of his bunk rolling a cigarette in the dark. Every morning, between two and three o&rsquo;clock, the idiot would wake up craving a smoke. He would turn over on his back and lie perfectly still for several minutes, staring up into the darkness above him.

HARRY SALPETER
YESTERDAY Bernard Karfiol began painting for tomorrow so that today he has come, so to speak, into the middle of his recognition. This is to state the position of Karfiol with caution and decorum and in deference to the natural ignorance of the public, for which the artist himself is partly to blame, of the place which he holds in the esteem of artists.

If you do go down, tell him how much I like his stuff, will you? That Uncle Fonse Laughed was a corker. That boy can write.”</p>

Automobiles as yet have not replaced the two wheeled &ldquo;cal&egrave;che&rdquo; and the horse still holds his own.

<p>ONLY a few months ago the Irish home government cut a last strand in separation from Great Britain: it refused to recognize the ascension of a new king to take the place of the resigning romantic Edward. And so even that last gesture in a prolonged and bitter rebellion may be perversely colored with a touch of romance; it is the curse of the Irish, as well as their glory, that they are among the picturesque and romantic characters in the cast of nations on this earth, and the hardest reality of their deeds is always and immediately transmuted into sentimental legend, so that the plain truth is practically unknown, and unwanted.</p>

THE rear view of the jacket in the foreground is of interest because it shows the extreme amount of fullness at the shoulder blades on each side. This is the London innovation now accepted by the majority of the best tailors in this country. This coat is cut in the new cubbing model, resembling a riding coat, with a long center vent and slanting flap pockets.

HERE are two versions of a fabric that has long been a staple and, although it has had its ups and downs of fashionable acceptance, has never been quite out of style. It&rsquo;s the smooth finish long wearing and shape retaining sharkskin, a clearcut densely woven worsted.

WE HAVEN&rsquo;T made much whoop-de-do over brown jackets and grey slacks and vice versa since ESQUIRE was very young and the topic was the football of the Sound and Fury. But it&rsquo;s still an important fashion and one that deserves an occasional reminder.

THE man in the saddle is correctly dressed for park riding and for showing at afternoon horse shows. The man monkeying with the girth might show at an informal event in the country, although not in jumping classes, where the bowler and black boots are rigidly required.
