IT has been about six months since we published William Scott Stewart’s article, How to Beat the Lie Detector. And about six times since then we have met people, usually at odd moments between five and seven, who have said to us across the pale curls of cigarette smoke and the faint fumes of mixed drinks in noisy mixed company:

TWO-WAY SAFETY. Of particular interest to the sailor or marine is a “safety bag” for emergencies that is both a container for valuables, food, and dry clothing, and also a means of keeping afloat until the wearer reaches dry land or is rescued.

Just read the letter from the Staff Sergeant in the Canal Zone, who is writing to 171 girls; that is a bit selfish when out here in the Nevada desert there are many fellows in our outfit that would like to write to just ONE American girl. We are stationed in the desert in the shadows of Boulder Dam, and until such a time as we are sent over to tap a little sap from the Japs, we would like to write to some of the girls around the country.

MAGNUM ARISTOCRACY shows no falling off the gilded bandwagon at El Morocco, whose zebra-chevroned décor is wellnigh blotted out with sables. Never any entertainment other than the excitement of noting who’s here, but that’s plenty and continuous from dinner till time to sup—at, say, 3 A.M.—on Hot Canapé, Perona, or some such exquisite trifle that maître Carino sagely suggests.

GEORGE ANTHEIL
THE final twelvemonth of any great war is ever apt to be sensational in its denouement. The last year of “World War II” (as it was then called) proved to be no exception. Indeed, it even went far beyond all previous wars in its almost unbroken series of unexpected climaxes.

<p>THE Yeoman of Signals scribbled for dear life on a signal pad and raced up the short ladder to the Compass Platform. “Commander in Chief to Ships’ in Company,” he read out “prepare for immediate action.” The Captain nodded and said something in an undertone to the Officer of the Watch who in his turn spoke quietly down a voicepipe.</p>

"How long,” said Sergeant Smoot, “am I been in the army, Corky?” “How would I know,” said Corky Smith. “Why don’t you write to the Department of Weights and Measures and ast them?” Smoot, his back propped against the pillow on his bunk, stared reflectively at the barrack ceiling.

For the eighth time your faithful prophet selects the two-year-old likely to win the Kentucky Derby

ROBERT SAUNDERS DOWST
IF ALSAB, two-year-old speed king of 1941, merely stays sound and trains on next year, he seems a moral certainty to win the Kentucky Derby of 1942 and following important stakes for three-year-olds. And if he improves even a trifle over what he has been in 1941 the year will be remembered with 1919, when Man o’ War came to the racing wars, as the year of emergence of another super-horse.

STUART CLOETE
LIEUTENANT VASSILOFF was a gunner. He commanded a four gun battery—that is, it had been a four gun battery. It was now, by the accidents of war, a single gun battery. Number one had gone first, then number two, then number three. Naturally, and equally by the accident of war, most of the gun crews had gone with their guns.

Ten Rules for Saving Tires
Same words with a different tune, now that motorists will have to make the old tires last for quite a long spell
[no value]
[no value]
PAUL W. KEARNEY
<p>THE two major breeders of tire trouble are (1) Underinfiation; (2) Bruises and misalignment. And both forms of neglect arise from a general misconception of the true function of a set of tires. Most of us consider the tire as a cushion for a softer ride—and stop there. But the tires are an integral part of the car’s transmission system.</p>

MARSHALL DIEBOLD
THE day after the Homecoming football game at Carleton in 1930, when I had just begun preparing for my first season as a basketball coach, six of our students were stricken by poliomyelitis—the dread infantile paralysis. Dr. Edward Rosenow of the Mayo Clinic rushed to Northfield from Rochester, sixty miles away.

In those seventeen years I have drawn Ella at home (when I had one), on boats, in Pullmans and Gopher Prairie day coaches, in hunting camps, trailers and planes.</p>

FEW persons can go on a wild turkey hunt without Please Do Not Disturb signs springing up throughout the mental recesses of their minds. Take Frank Thomas, Head Coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide, for instance. We have accompanied His Corpulency, Coach Tommy on several hunts and have had it demonstrated that while he’s a football expert, in the more intricate pastime of turkey hunting he never seems to know when or how to shift; his backfield usually is in motion at the wrong time, and arriving back at the Capstone campus he has been known to speak to his young gridiron hopefuls in whispers for days at a time.

WILLIAM STEPHENS
Only by certain hours when the moon, Flooding the countryside through leafless trees, Poured down its arctic light upon her face, And wind but gently disarrayed the hair Flung backward from her small defiant brow— Only by moments when the gradual stars And she were kindred, and her mind became As cold and as apart from his as stone— Only by these will he remember her Till memory is nothing, and his blood, That once was hers, is dust blown out of time— (His heart being what it was before he knew The sunburnt desert and the thirst for dew)?

Wendell L. Willkie
Favorite Occupation: Whatever I happen to be doing at the time, whether working as a farm hand, laboring in a tin mill, teaching school or practicing law. Mainspring: A passion for freedom. Chief Abhorrence: Prejudices of any kind, because they sap a man’s independence of thought and warp his freedom of will.

Their current earning capacity—$1,500 a month—is exceptionally high for a ballet performer... They are famed as being the only limbs in captivity that can do thirty-two consecutive fouettés (a complicated kick with one leg while spinning on the other)...

This campus beanie is dressed plenty fancy considering it’s one of those "My-God-It’s-Monday” mornings, but the reason will arrive on the spot in a few minutes for a mid-morning coke date. He’s pretty confident that the wolf standing next to him will not swipe his queen, for he knows that his rough, Shetland jacket with the new bold sandwich stripes, is probably better frail bait than a class numeral sweater worn inside out.

The enemy louse would have been able to foretell that presently a more nobbily dressed male would heave upon the sordid premises; that he would in due course subtly present the wife with a gift of a silk night-gown (those wives are all Iris Bellamys who “love the feel of nice things”); that it would not be long afterward that sex would rear its paleozoic head; that the fat, pathetic husband would try vainly to win his spouse back; and that, considering his powerful bulk, he would ultimately choke the life out of the wolf.

Office Boy: For the tight little world that dissolves into thin air every evening at five-thirty and is created anew every morning at nine, he is the energetically walking symbol of democracy and the American tradition. Everybody has the right, which nobody fails to exercise constantly, to order him around and yet everybody is more than a trifle afraid of him.

Now look at me! You’d never guess That I am in the dumps, But my heart is full of yearning And my throat is full of lumps; Six days a week I tap the keys With oodles of ambition But my boss has chronic asthma And a nasty disposition; I never meet a glamour boy, I'm strictly on my own,
