THERE are many things that the best intentioned of us say every day that add inches to the grin of Goebbels. They are things that we say without thinking them through, things that we would never say if we realized, for a moment, that they are precisely the things that he would like to hear us say.

SPOTS BEFORE YOUR EYES? Not the kind that send you off to the oculist, but the ones you get on your vest when you slipped with the gravy—or the spots on your shoes, automobile upholstery, fur, and even glassware; the gamut, in a word, of spot-catching materials.

I was very much interested in your recent editorial on the defunct magazine with a staff which seemed to be able to hit the nail on the head with their predictions. At the time of the first issue (to my knowledge) of April, 1938, I was so astounded by their revelations on the Panama situation and our American do-nothingness, that I preserved this copy.

WHEN DUE to popularity a restaurant has got to go bigger, it's got to go bigger, and that was the plight of Parisian-Viennese-cuisined Rumpelmayer’s, nondancing dining division of the Hotel St. Moritz. No chance to stretch westward-it would have run into a mob of people trying to get into this hotel’s giddy Café de la Paix—so eastward it had to be, crashing through into next door territory.

WHILE Commander Vincent Astor, U.S.N., is away in the service of Uncle Sam, his superb St. Regis Hotel, so ably directed by Gaston Lauryssen, remains a shining exemplar of hospitality at its most glamorous, most fastidious. Nowanights the Iridium Room is the social focal point, with maître John Kroll on the quarter-deck and Paul Sparr on the podium, and seraphic viands on the fire.

BENNY LEONARD grew up on New York’s lower East Side where one had to fight, he says, to survive. At fifteen he started fighting in the prize ring and won the Light-weight Championship of the world May 28, 1917, by knocking out Freddie Welch of England in the 9th round.

LIAM O’FLAHERTY
MY HAIR almost stands on end nowadays, when I read about the sordid and melancholy manner in which this war is conducted. Believe it or not, the soldiers engaged in this war really hate the enemy. It is waged by rival armies of fanatics. And the most strange aspect of the whole affair is that the professional soldier is treated with extreme suspicion by every country engaged in the conflict.

JOE ABRAMS
THIS is a problem for older and wiser heads, I was thinking as I knocked on my father’s door. The matter must be viewed without emotion by a disinterested party and judged by its merits alone. And certainly if there is one man in the world who is well qualified to advise me, that man is my father.

CHARLES RAWLINGS
IT MAY not be out there to the eastward this winter, Convoy Town. The gauge of the Battle of the Atlantic seems to have swung. The United States ensign, among other improvements, is out there now at sea, pink among the hagdowns and the fog. Technique of the fighting and very possibly of convoy may have changed and that icy, grinning, salt-caked, valiant settlement, a natural outgrowth of the original battle plan, may be greatly changed too.

WILLIAM A. KRAUSS
HIS plan of action, as you will perhaps recall, was rather ridiculously simple; and in this simplicity lay its apparent perfection. Quenton was a small man, with a small and hesitant voice, empty of emotion, but to assume—as some people had assumed—that he was therefore insipid, weak, was a considerable mistake.

THE twelfth Olympiad was scheduled to be held in Tokio, Japan, and then in Helsingfors, Finland, in the Summer of 1940. But the Games were called off when war first came to Asia and later to Europe. The rules provide that the Olympic Games cannot be held in a country at war.

TREVOR WIGNALL
A BRITISH ARMY officer of high rank, with whom I had served in days gone by, said to me recently: “Well, how’s sport doing in this man’s war?” I suppose he was thinking of a time when we had found it far more difficult to unearth free gear than willing players, of a period in our history when soldiers and sailors on leave eagerly spent their time taking part in games or watching them, of four years of conflict when we had both unknowingly witnessed a transformation that had turned British sport from a somewhat casual sort of affair into a vast industry.

HE WAS oblivious to the copper-red hair and the white neck of the girl who sat in front of him and peered around every few minutes with lowered eyelids or reached behind to touch up her perfectly arranged tresses. He ignored the sullen, half-pleading moue of the dark-eyed charmer in the mauve shirtwaist who, on his right, was toying with her lipstick.

HIM
1-Do you bring the names of other men into the conversation to give yourself a sought-after appearance? Don’t. This may give a man a sense of inferiority—he is uncomfortable with you, and soon drifts away to someone else. It may make him wonder how much talking you do about him.

HER
1-Do you use the continental approach, based on the belief that an immediate pass flatters a woman? This is the average man’s greatest mistake. If a pass, on first acquaintance, doesn’t insult a girl it at least bores her. 2-Do you show your real fondness for a girl by telling her about her bad points and advising her how to improve them?

HAROLD E. LEWIS
THE first time that I tried my spinning outfit I was fishing one of the huge pools of the famous Ausable River in the Adirondaeks of New York. Previously I had waded out as far as my waders would permit and I still could not reach the spot with my flyrod where I had seen a huge trout rise.

MRS. COURTNEY’S wrists ached. She’d been rolling bandages. At first one rolled bandages because one had to if one wanted to be in the social swim. But now Mrs. Courtney rolled bandages in grim earnest. To one who had borne the rigors of competition in Society the task of conquering a few foreign enemies was a mere chore.

HAMILTON BASSO
AS USUAL, old man Gay had taken his stick and walked down the road to the river and was standing on the bridge with his pale blue eyes fixed on the hill. Every afternoon he stood so, whenever the weather was fine, and even the C.C.C. boys who were new to that part of the country had come to regard him as essential to the landscape—a frail straight man of less than medium height, always collarless, the loose brick-red skin hanging in dark folds, the small pale eyes brooding with blank intensity beneath the dusty brim of a black felt hat.

WILLIAM LYON PHELPS
READING the correspondence to (not with) Florence Farr (of whom I had never heard) by Bernard Shaw and W. B. Yeats, edited by Clifford Bax and now first printed, is like listening to a man talking on the telephone where the response is audible only to the speaker; or perhaps it is more like listening to ardent prayers; for the surprising thing is that this girl was the recipient over a span of years of eager and sometimes passionate petitions from two first-class writers.

Whatever he is, he is the genuine article, self-made, self-taught, without any of that insufferable conceit from which the self-made become ill. He is an American painter, American by the accident of his birth and the circumstances of his life, and a painter by grace of that aesthetic initiative and impulse which Nature plants in the unlikeliest of places.

The above spectators make up an eternal triangle, and it might be cricket to take odds on which gentleman will buy the nice lady a drink after the race (or perhaps it’s a Bromo she needs).

WHEN I saw him standing there in line in one of those almost clerical uniforms of our Navy, slightly taller than the others, lean, alert and lithe, I couldn’t help thinking in contrast of the last time I had seen him at home before he enlisted in our forces at the Naval Training Station at Norfolk, Virginia.

IT HAPPENED in that semi-mythical Vienna, so fast fading into the perspective of two wars, that a dashing lieutenant of the Uhlans had drained so many bottles of foaming Pilsner that the imperial and royal staff physician had to ship him down to the laurel shrubs and palm trees of the Adriatic coast to recuperate.

There is only one best way of holding a steering wheel but surprisingly few drivers know what it is. The ideal technique was evolved by Ralph de Palma, famous speed king, in a career studded with more than 2,500 races. De Palma introduced, and the AAA endorses, the “ten-twenty” grip shown in the photograph—so called because the motorist’s hands approximate twenty minutes after ten on the clock.

1. Psychologists have so far been unable to discover any direct correlation between the charm and lovableness of a small boy and the amount of dirt on his face. 2. Most Negroes, exactly like most white people, don't invariably grin and chortle when things go wrong, but, if they go wrong enough, are apt to show definite certain signs of displeasure including the pout, the frown, the scowl and the fierce scowl.

Sample Directions: Writing (with more than 50 published stories and articles cluttering up the public prints); politics (attempting to make speeches, propose multiple solutions for the nation’s and the world’s ills, forays to foreign parts); trying to act, produce, et al.

WILLIAM STEPHENS
It may have been an old poem he read when rain slid down The dark pane of his window and crept through the still town. It may have been an old terror his heart felt at the rain, To know that rain wakes roses and he’d not see them again, But would gather the cold flowers waves wash on a shore When his heart, drowned under darkness, couldn’t feel any more.

This field was meant for plowing, with a man Conducting muscles in a morning song With birds and wind-stirs in orchestral plan, To fill an auditorium clear miles long. This glen was built for lovers, to refine Elusive, grudging life, on moss and loam, With moonlight, shade, esthetic lace and line Distinguishing a natural, secret home.
