THE oldest member of Esquire’s staff of departmental editors, in age and experience, is the youngest in the length of his association with this magazine. That the oldest should also be the youngest would be a strangely paradoxical coupling of attributes, if applied to almost anybody but William Lyon Phelps.

Thanks to the generosity of your “Pappy” of the “Mountain Boys,” Paul Webb, the officers and men aboard the sub-buster YP-606 are in receipt of the ship’s emblem shown in the enclosed photo. It seems to us Esky—That with “Uncle Rafe” reported down on a bomber over enemy territory, one of the “boys” on a sub-chaser out of Texas, another on a Coast Guard Cutter and Grandpappy with us, you should show more patriotism than cutting them to three quarter page size.

Introducing the author of Cappy Ricks to a masculine audience is tantamount to introducing Carrie Nation to the W. C. T. U. As a reminder though, PETER B. KYNE started his career as a clerk in a general merchandise store, worked in wholesale lumber and shipping offices, became a lumber broker and a newspaperman before enlisting in the Army (Company L, 14th U. S. Infantry) in 1898.

California wanted fruit pickers, and there was a good camp for laborers at La Habra, just outside Los Angeles.

EVELYNE and Beatrice Kraft, the beautiful and bizarre dancing sisters of Manhattan's talent-scouting nightclub, Café Society Uptown, are examples par excellence of how far you can go when you come from Englewood, New Jersey. Bringing Hindu and Afro-Cuban rhythms to an emporium of Bach-to-Boogie-Woogie is no small achievement; yet veteran nightclubbers, soldiers with sufficient pocket lettuce, and weary playboys are genuinely affected by the girls’ strange dances.

ROLAND SNAILSPACE is going into the Army. To him, he might as well be walking into one of those pleasure park revolving barrels because doing it with his eyes open doesn’t mean he’ll come out of it right side up. According to the doctors who gave him his first physical examination, Roland is a triumph of corpuscles.

THE United States Army has seriously set itself to be the best Army in the world in the care of its soldiers in the matter of recreation as well as in every other particular. Equipment for outdoor and indoor games, and for music and reading is as much a part of the soldier’s commodities as are his barracks or mess hall.

ROBERT CARL SILHAVEY of Overland, Missouri, former tennis star at the Rolla, Missouri, School of Mines, was a second lieutenant in the engineer corps in the Philippines when the Japs struck. His commanding officer in one of the engagements had a group of engineers along the Luzon roads, waiting for the American troops there to get out before the Japs appeared.

The newest things in the civilian wardrobe are accessories in the brave new colors inspired by American Service Ribbons—those little pieces of cloth that cover so much territory. The notion here is that a father, for example, can incorporate in his dress colors adapted from those in the decorations on the chest of his fighting son.

A lot of fair-to-fine pictures will come your way in the next few months—and a lot of fair-to-lousy ones, too. Your average will be good. But I go out of my way to suggest action for one picture—which you might otherwise miss. Report from the Aleutians is a film in color, made by the Signal Corps—specifically by Captain John Huston who not so long ago made The Maltese Falcon.

With the possible exception of mapping out tablecloth military campaigns, baseball is America’s favorite sport. A baseball team consists of nine men on your side and ten or eleven on the other, depending on how many umpires are officiating.
