HEADLINE MAP. The ordinary wall map of the world isn’t too helpful today in following the news, chiefly because it’s difficult to see the relationship between the Eastern and Western theatres of war and the United States. A wall map that is not ordinary, and therefore a good thing to have around, has been evolved to give you the necessary two-way perspective on world events.

SUNDRY REASONS why this roundsman keeps rounding, and I don’t mean my waistline: Hotel which has been serving Bouillabaisse (the real Marseilles McCoy) every Friday for a quarter of a century with addicts lapping it up—the McAlpin. (Pretty nearly enough to fill the handsome cavernous Marine Grill)

SOME OF THE ODDITIES encountered on the wining and dining map: World’s largest hand-woven rug, big enough to blanket a couple of tennis courts —serving as impressive sward in the Waldorf - Astoria’s central lounge . . . The Rainbow Room (plus its Siamese sister, the Rainbow Grill), pleasuregoer’s Pike’s Peak of the metropolis . . .

WALTER BROOKS’ short stories have appeared in Liberty, Collier's, The Atlantic Monthly and these pages. He was born in Rome, New York, originally planned to study medicine, but somehow got snared into advertising, and later turned to writing.

“I’VE just been down to see my draft board,” runs a gag used by one of the night club comedians, “and they put me in A-7.” “I never heard of Class A-7,” says his straight man. “There isn’t any Class A-7.” “Sure there is,” says the comic, happily. “That’s for cowards.”

ANONYMOUS
<p>THEY embarked like Venetian merchants for the lands of the East, with something to give, a long list of what they wanted to bring back, and no intention in the world of making an even trade. Who, you ask. “Mistera”—North American girls—“Mistera” because that’s the Latin way of making a female out of “Mister.”</p>

Golf for the Nation’s Sake
As Walter Hagen proved at Sandwich: It’s not the breaks that count, in golf or life, but how you take them

O. B. KEELER
I THINK the greatest line ever spoken on a golf course was what Walter Hagen said while on the way to winning his first of four British Opens. His beautifully placed drive on one of the trickiest fairways at Sandwich took an utterly reasonless bound into the deep gorse—a shot, maybe two shots . .. gone!

STERN, R.N.V.R.
IN HIS bowler hat, sixty shilling overcoat and soiled spats Captain Anton Hansen looking more like a grocery traveler than Master of the Thorrold, nodded gravely at the Commander’s words. “Let me assure you, gentlemen,” the Commander was saying “these coastal convoys are just as important as the big Atlantic ones.

WINE, women and song, the triumvirate beloved by all young men, is particularly dear to soldiers. Their wine and women, however, are limited by the prejudices as well as the exigencies of service but they can be sure of the song. The best generals of all countries always have approved of song for soldiers.

HE’S the biggest flesh-eating animal walking the world today. He attains a record weight of close to 1,700 pounds. His average is 1,000 to 1,200. He grows near to the shoulder height of a fan-sized cow pony and when he stands erect on his hind legs, he couldn’t walk through a twelve-foot doorway without stooping.

Gypsy Rose Lee confesses she's a pushover for Schopenhauer, Proust, murder and French Impressionism

ROBERT W. MARKS
CERTAIN things in life are ends in themselves; like the spray of waves over rocks, like fires seen at a distance through the dark ...and like Miss Gypsy Rose Lee. It has not been recorded that waves have ever wanted to become clouds, or that crackling fires have yearned for the glories that belong to suns; but Gypsy has most definitely sought, and perhaps found a new form for herself.

Cut Yourself a Piece of Muskie

GORDON MAC QUARRIE
<p>HERE is the way to determine how far your muskellunge hunting friend has gone in his chosen sport: If, when discussing sucker bait, he refers to it as “casting suckers,” put him down as one who has not gone through all the chairs. If, on the other hand, he says casually that he has “heaved suckers,” listen unto him with an attentive ear for he will be among the all-wool lodge members and no pretender.</p>

And Mr. Beasley found a little red hat which made him invisible and when Mrs. Beasley had a tantrum he put it on and that cured her of tantrums because it’s no fun having a tantrum if you can’t see the person you’re having it at.

GEORGE F. BROWNE
THE most difficult point to master in the art of poker is the fine science of quitting. Especially when the cards are running right for it takes a fox-like cunning to sense precisely when they’ll peter out. This lack of perception accounts in a large measure for the high mortality among “luck” players.

LAWTON MACKALL
IF YOU put a guy into uniform and expected him to furnish you with the money with which to pay him, and on top of that counted on him to drum up the price of his food and clothing, his machine gun, jeep, tank or plane, and the thousand and one other costly accessories he’d be needing as an A-1 fighting man, it wouldn’t surprise you if he requested to know what the hell sort of a deal this was anyhow.

LEE GEORGE
IN the foothills of the Ozarks, where clear streams flow like blue-green ribbons between limestone bluffs, stands the Southwest Missouri State Teachers College of Springfield, Missouri. The football coach of this school is Howard Holt “Red” Blah, forty-one-year-old former Ohio State University football and basketball star and later assistant football coach of his Alma Mater.

DORIS CRANE
A recent addition to the ranks, Doris Crane has come along faster than almost any other model in New York. She is sufficiently versatile to be in demand both for fashion work and for general illustration. Her versatility is carried over into her spare hours which she apportions between flying (her license will be coming through any day now), riding, tennis and the acquisition of unusual but empty liquor bottles.

JEROME WEIDMAN
Charwoman: Nobody, certainly not the boss who controls these things, would ever think of asking her opinion, but actually she is the only person who knows which staff members deserve a raise in salary for hard work. She is the only one who sees them at their desks, after hours, working late into the night while she cleans up the peculiarly unreal but nasty mess that only people working at typewriters and billing machines and glass-topped desks can leave behind.
