By the time this sees the light cratic of Convention print the in DemoChicago will occupy that middle distance in the public memory where an event is neither remote enough to be history nor near enough to be news. But as this is written the Republican Convention in Philadelphia is still classifiable as a news event, and the Democratic Convention is still to be convened.

HEAD DOWN. Everything, it seems, is custom-tailored for the golfer’s comfort these days except the final addition that turns up on his score card. Number one fairway accessory we’ve recently come across is a golf tee-cigarette pouch that ties into belt.

I have just spent a week and a half in single wretchedness, but thanks to ESQUIRE, it was not as bad as it very well might have been. With a stack of about twenty ESQUIRES, from January 1935-February 1937 (a few missing) I managed to stay reasonably content.

ESQUIRE INTRODUCES THE Vargo GIRL

[no value]
Every once in a while a new girl is born, fully grown and partially clothed, like Venus fresh risen from the sea. She becomes a legend; and she disturbs men’s sleep. To the sinuous and faintly-perfumed ranks of such women, whose bodies have had nowhere any flaw, whose pictures have stirred men to deeds of derring-do, and whose names have been magic symbols conjuring away dullness, melancholy, and all hope of contentment, Esquire introduces the Varga girl.

Junketeers to the nearby reaches of New Jersey have a lot of well-plushed latch-strings hanging out at them. Bridging and tunneling thither on pretext of rounding out their suntan, they come home moonstruck, to meet the milkman. Largely and lavishly responsible is Ben Marden’s Riviera, perched on the Palisades at the start and finish of things.

Perhaps the best proof of California’s fascination are the Americans who came to play for a week or two and never returned home. You’ll find thousands of them who freely confess they were born and lived for years in Vermont or Missouri or Kansas.

With this issue the helm of Esquire's Five-Minute Shelf passes to the capable hands of Dr. William Lyon Phelps. For more than fifty years associated in various academic capacities with Yale University, more recently as professor emeritus, Dr. Phelps has become a part of its tradition, as essential to the campus as the Chimes of Harkness.

Downfall of a Revolutionary

H. L. MENCKEN
<p>OF ALL the eminent characters who flourished in the West Baltimore of my nonage, the one most venerated by the boys of my generation was Hoggie Unglebower, an uncouth youth whose empire and influence, radiating out from an humble stable in the alley which ran behind our house in Hollins Street, covered altogether an area of at least half a square mile.</p>

<p>AFTER the first round Andy knew it was going to be a hárd fight. He was fighting a tough slugger named James “Sandy” Clarke and he was a very dark Negro from the West Indies, much darker than Andy. In the first round he boxed well and had little difficulty in cracking Clarke with left hooks, but Clarke was short and chesty and powerful—his arms full of thick muscles— and he kept coming in, right hand cocked, taking Andy’s left hooks without even grunting.</p>

“I GOT a terrific story wrote up here,” said Seventy-Six. Forty-Five raised his eyes from the white thread belt he was weaving. It was Saturday afternoon, and the privileged convicts were having their recreation period in the Yard. “So what’s terrific about it?” Seventy-Six slipped a wad of foolscap from his grey blouse.

<p>IN ORDER to borrow money gracefully one must choose the time and place. It is a difficult business, for example, when the borrower is cockeyed, or has measles, or a conspicuous shiner. One could continue indefinitely but the inauspicious occasions can be catalogued as one—it is exceedingly difficult to borrow money when one needs it.</p>

CONTRARY to popular belief, the first casualties of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I were women, not men . . . Two young women. Quiet-voiced, cleareyed, and unafraid. They never knew what hit them. And neither did any of us, for a while.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This piece caused such a commotion in our own editorial rooms, bringing our golfers close to blows, that we felt it would hardly be fair to withhold from our public the chance to get in on such a good fight. You remember, of course, that old définition of golf as “the difficulty of attempting to put a small ball into a wee hoie, with instruments ill-adapted to the purpose.”

<p>THEY tell a race track story about George Bernard Shaw.

S., in addition to being a pungent writer, has a highly developed nose for publicity, and he must have chuckled happily when a chorus of five million British voices answered him: “But which horse, Mr. Shaw, which horse?”</p>

ON THE afternoon of Friday, August 16, 1940, Mr. Herbert Gorham of New York abandoned his brokerage business, and, animated by patriotism, took to the woods. He had begun a letter of explanation to his partner, but after writing a dozen lines, had thrown it away.

FORKST HILLS is half tennis tournament, half sports amusement park. The National Singles Lawn Tennis Championship is played off there annually on the grass courts of the Westside Tennis Club. It’s a strange spectacle, and a unique one altogether different from any other great tennis tournament like the Wimbledon, Anteuil, Sydney or the Riviera tournaments.

Hollywood is full of narrowly clever people who are supposed to be sophisticated but who are naïve as children with respect to activities and values outside the world of money-making and ostentatious expenditure.

Each time a well meaning, but uninformed dog show spectator says, "Oh! how cute, a baby airdale,” every self-respecting Welsh terrier’s hair goes up. And quite justifiably so . . . The Welsh is probably one of the oldest of terrier breeds. Antique paintings and prints show a small rough-haired black and tan dog which a century ago was known as the old English Terrier, or Black and Tan Wire Haired Terrier.

UNCLE JEFF COONGATE was depressed. He sat in a rocker in the front room of Zack Bourne’s cabin, responding gloomily to Zack’s conversation. The origin of Uncle Jeff’s mood was, to him, so dark and shameful that he hated to think of it. The fact was that yesterday he had deliberately missed a standing shot at a buck deer! He had willfully fired his rifle into the air! This act of mercy, being without precedent in the one-eyed poacher’s career, made him suspect that his mind was going.

THE dining room was so large that it included several climatic belts. Near the windows it was cold; in the sphere of the flaming fireplace it was hot; in the center, around the beautifully appointed table, the air was mildly temperate. The iron gratings of the windows were covered with dense ivy on the outside, so that at noon in the winter it was necessary to light the candles of the chandelier, or at least put candelabra beside the plates.

THE power of the press is a wonderful thing.

Quick to take my cue, I followed Benchley by less than six months, pointing out that what he said would remain true only so long as newsreel cameramen actually took events—not previews, not re-enactments of events, but the direct happening itself.

And although our tire problems don’t compare with theirs, their experiences dramatize the performance of modern tires.

We don’t know whether women dress to please men or to please other women, but we are sold on the theory that men dress to please themselves. At least, we’ve never seen a man examine a window display without first pausing to glance at his reflection in the glass.

Bet you can’t guess where he’s going. The big railroad map in the background, clue one, takes in a lot of territory. The luggage, clue two, is for more than a mere overnight jaunt. The Red Cap, a false clue, rustles baggage in double-quick time.

The fashion leaders would no longer remain in the lead if they allowed others to catch up with them. The same thing is true of horses, or halfbacks. At any rate, the housetop-shouters have long been broadcasting the axiom that every self-respecting wardrobe is entitled to a Glen Urquhart plaid suit—just like those worn by the fashion leaders.

It usually takes a long, long time for a comedian to reach the top rung of the theatrical ladder. Most of today’s headliners were well out of their twenties before their names went up in the Broadway mazdas, before theirs was top billing. But a young man of twenty-seven has come along this year and given lie to this axiom of the gag trade.
