You remember that definition of a Liberal that’s been going the rounds lately? Winchell had it, credited to somebody, but we disremember who. Anyway: “A man with both feet planted firmly in the sky.” Well, we’re it. You say you knew it all the time?

BERMUDA FOR EASTER. If you’re the type who would rather spend Easter in a pair of slacks and a sweater instead of a topper and cutaway, and who’d rather see fields of Easter lilies in bloom instead of behind a florist’s window, then Bermuda’s the ticket.

WHO WOULD NOTICE DOGS ON WINDY DAY IN CENTRAL PARK? I agree with Mr. Ficke when it comes to women making fools of themselves over their “cute little snookims,” but I can’t understand why he didn’t hit more on the subject. Hasn’t Mr. Ficke ever walked in Central Park during a windy day and seen the ladies with their dogs? Hasn’t he noticed (how could he help it!) the poor “muts” walking around dressed in coats, shoes, and sometimes even caps!

Billy Gladstone, energetic snare drummer of Radio City Music Hall, also doubles as an inventor. The Paderewski of percussion, as the radio-ites call him, has been with the hall since it opened in 1932. Between drummings he thinks up little things like the electrically lighted orchestra baton with which Erno Rapee conducts the Music Hall stage shows; improved drums and traps and even an illuminated tongue depressor, an ororange juice extractor and a trick keycase.

HORATIO WINSLOW served in the infantry during the World War, and says, “though not of the Lost Generation, I passed the years from 1920 to 1926 abroad, mostly on French territory. In Morocco, after being officially refused permission to do so, I managed to spend several weeks with the Foreign Legion during operations.

B. S. ROGERS
You have heard a lot about swing during the past few years. You have also read a lot about it. You have learned who the great performers of yesterday and today are. Names like Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Jack Teagarden, Frankie Trumbauer, Duke Ellington, and Chick Webb—not to speak of Benny Goodman—now come easily to your lips.

DANIEL FUCHS
THE guest, a Buffalo composer named Jon Verlucian, sat very straight and stiff in his chair as if to show Dr. and Mrs. Hayman by this posture how conscientiously he was trying to hold himself in control. But his heavy-lidded eyes kept closing and opening behind his spectacles; his jaws chewed nervously on the empty cigarette holder he held between his teeth; and when he talked his voice was soft and murmuring with quiet tragedy.

EVEN here in the mountains these early summer days were hot, and although it was not a hard climb they were glad when it was time for them to rest and eat their lunch. They stopped in the pine woods by a clear fast-flowing stream. Jean sat down and took off his shoes and socks.

OUTSIDE the Paradise Hotel hangs a sign which reads: “15 and 25 cents a night.” In this East-Side lodging, one flight up through a gas-lit hall varnished tobacco-juice brown, in this way-station for wrecked souls, this mere corridor between our mortal world and the land where sorrow and money are unknown, here last night an outcast died.

I HAVE a quarter-page comic drawing; it is signed Poir (maybe there’s more of the name, but the page got cut at that point); I think it comes from an old issue of Judge; and I also think it is very funny. A thug is sitting in the witness’ chair, his mouthpiece is arguing with the judge; and with a look of fiendish triumph, the criminal is giving the judge the hotfoot.

Touts and sportsmen, gamblers and housewives, these scholars of the scratch sheet treasure their systems, ignoring the experience that they can’t place their bets and have them, too.

If he sees you he may drop in his hole at once, which is good sense on his part, or, just as likely, he may lose his wits and sit up in that funny, quizzical crouch of his and examine you carefully.

BLAINE lay in the hot night and wondered how anyone could be so tired and still retain consciousness. It was not the first time he had thought this since coming to the hospital. Now it seemed to him that all of him slept, or at least was inert, except that part of his brain concerned with his consciousness; not the full, colored, complex consciousness, but the elementary thing which merely realized a few simple facts: the darkness around him, the certainty that he lived, his complete weariness.

MANY of those in the market for a delicious slice of early spring relaxation like to traipse down to Bermuda, thereby putting themselves a comfortable jump ahead of the domestic brand of summer sunshine. The gentleman with the fine carriage has just alighted from an incoming plane.

COUNTRY gentlemen don't grow on trees, although they are allergic to them. Fortunately, however, you don’t have to fall into that exclusive classification in order to be a gentleman and to like to get out in the country once in a while. This outfit, preeminently compatible to that combination of circumstances, is making its debut at a country dog show but would do quite well for any less swanky country occasion.

ANY philosopher can tell you that life is just a vicious circle. Here we are luring you into a new layout of fishing paraphernalia so that you, in turn, can lure the trout to its fate. Presumably, somebody lured us into the original notion (actually, we just thought it would be a good idea), and so on backward and forward as far as the mind can stretch.

HERE’S a handy little gadget for placing the weight where it’s easiest on the feet. The shooting seat is a great leg-saving device during lulls at sporting events. This outfit strikes the correct country note. The jacket, in a basket weave Shetland, carries a three-button front and flapped breast pocket.
