SHE'LL SETTLE FOR A DIAMOND! Ah, Spring, the time for love, romance, impetuous promises... and often, alas, diamonds. To the ancients, the diamond was the symbol of success and happiness for those entering wedlock... hence, it has become the accepted gem for engagement rings.

I want to express my gratitude and acknowledgement of the article “A sober salute to festive season” in your December issue. I agree with everything that is said there. Only by articles like these people will learn the truth about Germany.

A quaint item strayed into our mundane domain the other day ... a box of string which turned out to be the makings for birds’ nests, VERY SPECIAL string, which you are supposed to distribute at random, draping it about on your trees, bushes and hither and yon on lawn and drive-ways to help the little beggars build themselves peachy Spring and Summer homes.

LARKY WATKIN is the author of On Borrowed Time, published by Knopf last fall. He was born in Camden, New York, in 1901. He says: “After Harvard I taught, first in a Northern, then in a Southern university. To help out during the depression I took over the coaching of the college dramatic group and wrote plays for my actors.

THE other day I lunched at a New York restaurant which is famous for the costliness of its food, the wealth of its male patrons and the intolerable chic of its women. There happened to be three or four of the most publicized “best-dressed women” in the room at the time.

THE woman I saw enter my office had a ravishing face, of a grave and sweet beauty. Her charm recalled that of forests and gardens during the days which precede autumn, when the colors are still those of summer, yet here and there a leaf hardly tinged with rust adds to their brilliance an unexplainable, melancholy grace.

<p>EVENING. A soft, foggy vapor slowly descends upon the Stephaniestrasse, while the lights from the distant street lanterns glimmer from out of the distance. From the city the muffled clatter of wagons sounds as though coming from a heavily carpeted room.</p>

THE long expanse of Lake Chapala is bounded by ribbed grey mountains, primitive villages, and stretches of bleak land, where the cactus is at home. Few intruders come here. In the narrow cobbled streets of the town the only moving figures are likely to be peasants from the countryside, burros laden with firewood or pottery, market-people, strolling musicians, shawled women, and perhaps an occasional drunken cavalier flashing by with silver spurs.

EVERY day, somewhere in Manchuria, Inner Mongolia or China, the Japanese and the Chinese are fighting. They have been doing so for years, long before the outbreak of war in 1937, and every indication is that they will continue to do so for years to come.

RADIATING apparently from the axis of Mrs. Andrews’ rooming house the city of San Francisco rose in waves of drab streets and puzzling avenues. Beyond, in further waves, its ancient brown hills seemingly crowded the earth back into counties and states, still radiating.

WE flattened against the wall to let the troops pass. From the railway station they streamed in two brown lines down opposite sides of the narrow, cobbled street, each line closely hugging the shelter of the eaves. In their loose-fitting uniforms padded out with cotton they looked like animated mattresses and because they all wore gym shoes there was no sound of marching feet.

For instance it has Sam Small, who once voyaged all the way to America and by his cunning managed to come back home safely to tell all about it.

SUCH popularity, if I read the papers correctly, must be dictated, not deserved.

Comrade S. was not so long ago exported to the capitalist world as another triumph of the Five Year Plan, a simon-pure Communist composer, proof that the Soviets not only encouraged the arts, but produced great artists (the two things do not always go together).

THE facts of history are so ironical of themselves that they do not need the rhetorical irony of a Gibbon or a Strachey to point them. In the year 1265 A. D., the Mongol emperior, Kublai Khan, having subjugated Korea and having fixed Peking as the capital of the gigantic Chinese empire his grandfather Gengis had created, sent envoys to the Mikado of the “Wa” (little people, or dwarfs) of the islands off Korea to notify him that the Big Shot was taking over his racket and that it would be healthy for him if he didn’t give Kublai any argument.

IN the early spring the country kit, among other things, comes into its own. Starting with the outfit at the right, just to be different, we have a fashionable example of the plus-four suit, this one being in a brown check cheviot tweed. The jacket is a three-button notched lapel single-breasted model.

BEFORE spring quite makes up its mind that it’s here to stay, chilly winds call for warm clothing; the sport itself, on the other hand, requires garments that will not interfere with freedom of motion. If you can’t figure that one out for yourself, you had better take a lead from these two golfers.

You, too, can dally in front of the Sherry-Netherland during the height of the business day. That is, you can if you live in New York and part of your time is your own. If you hit this combination, it would never, never do to let people get the impression that you’re merely en route from one business engagement to another.

IN the early season when the streams are often overflowing and there’s apt to be a chill in the air and the water, this outfit affords a very practical and workmanlike answer to the problem of going after trout in comfort. Instead of the usual hiplength rubber boots, these English wading trousers of heavy rubberized cotton material are worn.

IT’S getting so that you really can’t tell the players without a scorecard at informal race meetings, because the new trend is for the spectators to dress more and more like the participants. The chief horsy elements in the outfit at the left are the three-button notched lapel tweed jacket, the narrowly tapered khaki drill trousers, and the hunting shirt of yellow silk and wool with blue cotton stock.
