AT THIS TIME last year, on this same page, we bade godspeed to last year’s Christmas issue with a wistful note of wonder that seemed a bit too self-pitying at the time. For as that was written, two months before Pearl Harbor, we were already viewing with some alarm “the priorities situation, with its consequent temporary shortages of certain raw materials,” and complaining that it had “knocked a number of scheduled advertisers out of our pages.”

In Frederic A. Birmingham’s article (p. 85) I notice the following quotation: “the above title undoubtedly calls for a few haughty sniffs and a barrage of General Jackson’s choicer oaths.” If the writer is referring to General “Stonewall” Jackson of the C. S. A., I would like to say that General Jackson was never known to swear, and often reprimanded others for doing so in his presence.

HEFTIEST EXECUTIVE heads and fluffiest coiffed ones are equally transparent to Myrus the mentalist who tops the dinner and supper shows at the Cotillion Room of the Hotel Pierre. Even so, he’s put to it to outshine the pageant of maître Paul Gotschi’s vivid costumed viand-bearers.

After he was ordained a Catholic priest in 1912, the RT. REV. MSGR. EDWARD JOSEPH FLANAGAN’S first parish was St. Patrick’s Church in Omaha. It was here he started his Workingmen’s Hotel, which proved to be the stepping stone for his founding of Boys Town, ten miles west of that city.

RAYMOND GRAM SWING
ALL new things that are born are produced out of elements already in being, and the Nativity of the New World can be no exception, it must be the product of the old world. The sense that the new can only be the transformation of the old pervades Dali’s symbolic phantasy.

CURT RIESS
I WAS sitting before the microfilm projector, running off some strange films. Through the open window I could see and hear the traffic on Madison Avenue. All around me, men and women were working at typewriters or looking over the latest news reports, getting ready shortwave broadcasts to Europe— to occupied countries and to Germany itself.

SIDNEY CARROLL
FROM a Hollywood point of view, there is nothing exotic about Mervyn Leroy. Simplicity is the most exotic thing in Hollywood and Mervyn Leroy does not lead a simple life. Take, for example, his office. It is just another one of those palatial things which the masters of M.G.M. distribute to their important executives.

CHAMPION SIRARNO’S SOPHISTICATED LADY Owned by Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Rose. A general utility terrier is what the Kerry Blue was originally bred to be, taking certain characteristics from both the Irish terrier and the Irish Wolfhound. For over a hundred years he earned an honest living in Ireland and England hunting small game and birds, retrieving on land and from water and pinch-hitting as a sheep and cattle herder.

DONALD McGUINESS
<p>FARMING is fun for the city man. It gets him out in the open. It gives him a chance to pit his wits against nature and the elements, and it satiates his natural desire to build things. Farm ownership places a mark of distinction on any man. It makes him the envy of his lunch table cronies, opens new fields of interest, often gives new meaning to his business or professional life.</p>

ANTON watched his little strip of muddy road, feeling the bite of approaching winter in his old bones. Winter was hard on guerrillas, particularly the ancient kind like Anton, whose body ached for the warmth of a forbidden fire. Aside from the cold, it stripped the leaves from trees—the kindly, protective foliage that made it possible for him to pick off one or two of the accursed invader with the ancient, double-barrelled old smoothbore, then glide away through the great expanse of brush and trees.

THE FOREGOING record shows clearly that there were two basic ideas on which General Billy Mitchell kept insisting throughout the years of his impassioned crusade. The first was that surface navies were hopelessly vulnerable to attack from the skies and that consequently sea power was destined to become an auxiliary of air power.

BILLY EVANS
NO ATHLETE is any better than his legs. And strangely enough, the legs go first. The value and importance of speed in baseball was never more dramatically demonstrated than by the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals this year when they simply ran over the competition in their own league in the vital closing weeks of the National League pennant race, and then proceeded to run the touted New York Yankees right off their feet in the world series.

One of our clever friends says the happiest people in the world are the ones with the best memories. He contends the reason for this is that when the going gets tough they escape into the past. Then it follows that the stronger the memory—the more complete the escape.

CAPTAIN KIRK ARMISTEAD, USMC basketball star at the University of San Francisco until his graduation in 1935, won decorations for his “valorous action in line of duty” at Midway. He led his tiny flight of five fighters against a swarm of 80 Jap divebombers and emerged with a smashing victory over the enemy in which more than one-third of the total number of enemy planes were destroyed.

Elevator starter: This Ward McAllister of office building society is, to mix the metaphor giddily, a combination of tremendous snob, petty tyrant, poor man’s Donald Nelson, and coffee pot Lucius Beebe. From his vantage point at the head of the marble lobby he can see the people whirling into the building through the revolving doors a full ten seconds before they reach the elevators.

<p>EVER see a ghost raised? No? Then you haven’t watched the publishing business lately.
