It has for several months been our intention to devote this space in this issue to the gratifying privilege of introducing William Lyon Phelps, who will take over Esquire’s Five-Minute Shelf, effective with the September issue. As the time for making this presentation has drawn nearer we have been increasingly perplexed by that proverbial problem of how to introduce someone who needs no introduction.

May I come in this late and whisper something in the ear of Mr. Vincent Horan, who, away back in your November issue, objected to your allowing us women to comment on ESQUIRE in its pages? The day that we make ESQUIRE none of our sweet business, that’s the day the sales’ll drop off.

SWING. Summer’s not much of a time to be working the elementary kinks out of your golf swing, but if you’re behind schedule in your practice routine, we’d suggest a look at a device-for-the-home which will help put your stroke in the called-for groove.

LUDLUM SMITH says: “I’m thirty-one, and haven’t done a whole lot—no wild oats or anything. RCA pays me to be a sort of radio engineer in its transmitting station at Bolinas. That’s on the fog-bound coast of California just north of San Francisco.

Last month New England, next month California, but this time round we’re putting you down in green pastures that lie in between. For the Atlantic and Pacific have imposing inland “rivals,” landlocked “oceans” that long have been stamping grounds for cognoscenti in the art of vacationing.

That tradition-hallowed Broadway haunt, the Hotel Astor Roof, now sophisticatedly modern in décor, is further smartening its evenings with the music of tall Hal Kemp ... Sky horticulture atop the towery St. Moritz flourishes to Eddie Varzos’s maestroing and violin scintillation, with food and a floor show tossed in...

HART STILWELL
EVEN though I am convinced that a lot of cunning attributed to wild animals and birds is simply a false impression created by the fact that the modern man in quest of game is not ordinarily a woodsman, I will admit before we go any further that wild game is pretty dog-gone tricky at times.

THE guest or dude ranch at its best is the modern synthesis in cellophane for the call of the wild. Adventure de luxe, with some of the glamour left in and all frostbite and agonies at water hole left out, is available for a price in the lands of eternal summer from New Mexico to California.

OLD Solomon was a fisherman and a fly tier. He was a gunsmith, too, and had traveled with Buffalo Bill on the Keith Circuit. To the boys, he was a romantic figure, dim and heroic as Robin Hood and Jesse James. Our fathers used to say that no one in the country could tie artificial flies better than Solomon.

DO YOU believe in vitamins? Paraphrasing Charles A. Dana’s comment on ghosts, neither do I but I have been afraid of them all my life; or, at any rate ever since it was first published that food should contain vitamins. Every morning I swallow a large horse-pistol-sized capsule of concentrated vitamins, first raising Hell in a large unpleasant voice if the brown bottle is not to be seen amid the other breakfast dishes.

Efficient Camp Chow

PAUL W. KEARNEY
ONE of the vexing problems of the summer camper and long-distance hiker is the business of carrying enough nourishment for the well-known stomach without breaking the equally well-known back. Efficient weight reduction is being realized in other outdoor departments: aluminum and lightweight steel have reduced the burden of cooking utensils; Kiro cloth, Egyptian, Tanalite, etc., have cut tent weights to the bone; you can get a warm, down-stuffed sleeping bag weighing only three pounds, and so it goes.

THE man driving the big, blue car was making forty miles an hour in spite of the uneven road, in spite of the desert. He was crossing the desert, making for the blue hills ahead of him. They were about fifteen miles away. He was in Arizona, and they had told him the short cut to the town he wanted to reach was closed on account of snow.

IN THE light of all the ballyhoo that came along in the wake of something more than a thousand white marlin dragged unwillingly across gunwales at the little Maryland port of Ocean City last summer; and the inevitable “Oh-ing” and “Ah-ing” that accompanies the landing on a spindly rod and light line of a big tuna or a near-record blue marlin, a lot of fishing folks are losing sight of the finest finny sportsman of them all.

CHARLES FREDERICK McKIVERGAN
ORDINARILY yachting—the kind that involves owning a thirty-five or fifty-foot boat on which you do all of the steering and most of the upkeep and repair work yourself, with perhaps a friend or two to help—is not too expensive a diversion. Not the cheapest fun in the world, maybe; yet neither is it financially prohibitive to a lot of people in this country who reside near navigable waters.

How very long ago it seems since the first ruffed grouse I shot at escaped, by a comfortable margin, into a tangled mass of brush—and left me with a strangely awed feeling. Since then I have followed Old Thunderwing in many places: the cut-over pine country of Michigan, across her golden poplar-covered slopes, through the thickest and meanest of her tamarack swamps.

IF THERE’S any accomplishment an outdoor man ought to have, it’s horsemanship.

The real horsemanship I refer to is the kind that enables a man to start out with a single horse, ride several hundred or several thousand miles over unknown country, and bring the same horse back in as good condition as the day he left.

OF MAN’S bright ideas, beer was one of the earliest, with the result that the whole course of civilization has been fluffed with suds. By the time ancient Egypt eased into the picture, some sixty centuries ago, the art of brewing was teamed up with that of baking, Staff of Life soaring in the oven thanks to yeast supplied by its side-kick Quaff of Life, and these two staples greeting each other in the human stomach in old school tie recognition.

Let’s say that they have finally discovered your real name is Philip Musica. Naturally, you want to travel—light, fast and alone. And as a clever means of disguise, you want to be well-dressed. In that slightly hypothetical case, we have exactly what you want right here on this page.

This baby tips his hat as if he means it. In fact, you can almost hear him chirping, "Good morning, dear teacher, good morning to you.” You might call it the Continental manner, but at least he is dressed American from the neck down. From the neck up, to get down to cases, he wears a cocoanut palm hat with open weave crown, a style that made its first appearance last February during the height of the season at Nassau.

There’s one thing on this page that money can’t buy, and that’s the splendiferous shade of tan that adorns these three bathing beauties. The artist must have seen these complexions in a movie or read them in a book. At any rate, they impress us as representing a rather idealistic departure from real life.

Listen, my children, and you shall hear exactly what to wear for a midsummer night’s formal, R. S. V. P. We can’t tell you the whole story here but if you pay attention to what we do have to say, you’ll get by with enough to spare. Pattern yourself after either of these two worthies and you can free your mind for concentration on more important things for the duration of the evening.
