On the degrees of Esquire addiction

[no value]
Countless are the claims of long-time addiction to Esquire, especially from those whose letters seek a favor (say to get a cartoon autographed or something of the sort). Variations are slight from this master-pattern: "As one who has read your every issue, I would like to ask a favor."

There is a fourth type of relationship to this magazine. That's just plain old-fashioned non-readership. That embraces those whose acquaintanceship with Esquire has never come any closer than that of having "seen it around." They've heard about it, from its friends or enemies, and perhaps even noticed its noisy cover on newsstands or in dentists' offices.

HOT AIR. There’s someone around the house, we’ll wager, who’s perpetually interested in the temperature. True? Then that new twin thermometer ought to please him—designed for indoor location, it not only gives the count within the house but accurately indicates the temperature outdoors.

Going places? There’s a lot of territory covered by those two frail words. Moosehead Lake, Maine to Ensenada, California; Hudson Bay to Bimini. So much territory in fact that it’s sometimes sort of tough nailing down these strong-willed, vacation-minded thoughts that so easily disturb your everyday cerebration.

Eyes feast sumptuously in the tasteful and far-from-humble Hampshire House (150 Central Park South) whose petite aftergarden is now vistaed through open doors as you sit chintzed in the main dining room, or is your immediate neighbor if you have chosen the turquoise-chaired Orangerie in between.

ANONYMOUS
I DON’T play poker now, or shoot craps, or bet even caddy fees when playing golf, or play bridge for money—no, not even for a fortieth of a cent a point. I used to. I have dealt and have been dealt thousands of poker hands. The cubed ivories have rolled from my fingers and skittered fatefully across blankets, tablecloths, green baize surfaces, or simply a living room rug until the sun shone again out of doors, and the birds chirped their matin song.

<p>SPRING had come to the broad valley of the San Joaquin. The sage was bright green again and the wild lupin ran like a blue flame along the northward-facing hillsides. The hollows were sprinkled with daisies and the twigs of greening willows and sycamores made a wine-yellow veil along the horizon.</p>

The problem, be it one of health or of production, is faced courageously and with groans at from one to five thousand a week.</p>

HART STILWELL
WHEN the cream of the nation’s shotgun shooters gathered in San Francisco for the 1939 National Skeet Shoot they knew their work was carved out for them. They were face to face with the job of beating a couple of boys. One of them was Dick Shaughnessy, who started pouring it on the adults three years ago, when he was fourteen, and who has kept it up so consistently that they expect to be beaten by him.

WE HAVE always shied away from color photography of fashions on the hoof, depending more on the good right arm of Fellows, Goodman, et al. But here we show you an actual live model wearing actual clothes and, in the hands of Baron Hoyningen-Huene, we shouldn’t wonder but what the telephone may not be symbolic—in other words, that this sort of thing is here to stay.

We like to describe the apparel worn by gentlemen sailors—they wear so very little. For example, the man at the right sports a cotton hat, knitted wool sweater, semi-faded denim slacks, yellow wool socks and rubber-soled blue canvas shoes.

From a behind-the-scenes point of view, Gabriel Heatter’s “We, The People” is undoubtedly one of radio’s most unusual, nerve wracking and interesting programs. It’s the type of program where people write in from all over the country and are brought to New York to face the microphone with all expenses paid by the program sponsor.

Elsewhere in this issue we take our artwork straight and our photography straight, but here we mix the drinks—with what seems to our untutored eye the usual deplorable results of such procedure. However, even though the art department may have nodded, the fashion staff is right on its toes and earnestly entreats you to incorporate these lightweight worsted fabrics in off shades of blue, or green, in your summer wardrobe.

THAT was a different century when the drummers stepped, cinder-strewn, from gas-lit day coaches in Chicago to catch Little Egypt’s act at the Columbian Exposition. But this, rapidly calculated, is the twentieth century and it is no trick at all to emerge from spic planes and span trains as if they were so many band-boxes.
