A FEW weeks back we were sitting with George Jean Nathan at the corner table in New York’s “21” Club which is Mr. Nathan’s nearest approach to an office. At that table he has for a long time practiced the amiable habit of giving us a measurable refund of his own monthly Esquire check, in the form of food and drink, along with some of the best editorial ideas this magazine has ever had.

Sinclair Lewis
Esquire has asked me to undertake a somewhat different coverage of the subject of books. In its pages, beginning with the June issue, I shall undertake not coverage in the form of tardy reviews of the routine run of books without end, but selective criticism, endeavoring to give attention to authors whom I deem to be of special significance or promise.

A MEDICINE MAN FOR YOUR BLUES It, seems Esquire is to be found the world over, even in the jungles of New Guinea, thousands of miles from home. I am submitting a photograph showing the unusual place I encountered “Esquire.” At a native “Sing-Sing” I found one of the dancers wearing an elaborate headdress with an “Esky” cover as a centerpiece.

HOTELS are so crowded, anybody who hits town without a room reservation had better bring a sleeping bag. However, if he's a member of the Armed Forces, the Travelers Aid in Penn Station or Grand Central will get a billet for him somehow... The superb-cuisined Versailles, where lush Ver-Sighs are on the hoof, is offering songcharmist Carl Brisson in new and old numbers, and are the customers taking him!

ROBERT L. SCOTT, JR.
I DON’T have that feeling ef exhilaration today that I usually have when I’m flying. Somehow the thrill of it all sticks in my throat,and I watch the shadows of our bombers skipping over the green mountains of China far below. That low sun at our back makes them grotesque, for the shadows appear to slowly climb the hills on the up-sun side and then leap across the valley to begin their next climb.

THE moment the girl entered tho bus, Harry wanted her to sit beside him. There were two other unoccupied seats, one of them next to an old man who was already noisily and untidily asleep, a yellow trickle of tobacco running from his lips, and the other next to a middle-aged woman whose child, torn between nursing and crying, bore on its chin a milky stain oddly similar to that which distinguished the old man.

COMMENTARY
PAUL GALLICO
ON August 6, 1926, there took place the greatest recorded athletic feat by a woman in the history of the world. Gertrude Ederle, the nineteen-year-old daughter of an Amsterdam Avenue, New York, German-American butcher, swam the English Channel from Cape Gris-Nez, France, to Kingsdown, England, in fourteen hours and thirty-one minutes.

BECAUSE Thomas D. Fanning II had family and money, he was news. He was photogenic, too. Consequently his youthful lapses from sobriety and monkhood assumed, against the neutral background of Boston, spectacular hues. Because Tom Fanning did not go daily to an office, people said he was lazy and unintelligent.

In their eagerness to come early and avoid the rush, some of papa’s pal's took off from the trenches promptly at eleven hours and one second, November 11, 1918.

WHEN the Eighth Avenue subway was being built, I used to walk sometimes of late afternoons along the part of it between Eighth Street and Houston. After the El turned, the street widened and became almost a public square. It was boarded over with big Douglas fir planks, and excavations were in process below. Somehow the street was like a stage, and the hollow sound of footsteps was as meaningful as backstage footsteps.

THEY used to be called the funny papers.

Now they are called the comics, though the name is a rank misnomer for most of them.

OF ALL the lights that gleam on this season’s Broadway, two of the most warmly glowing are Joan Tetzel and John van Druten’s charming play I Remember Mama —represented opposite by the Victorian parlor lamp. In the play, starring Mady Christians and Oscar Homolka, Joan plays the important role of the eldest of Mama’s daughters—the one who becomes a writer and in her stories “remembers” the life of her childhood in the immigrant Norwegian family in San Francisco, some years ago.

WE Americans are headed for another Age of the Tin Lizzie. It’s an era we thought we outgrew twenty years ago; the era of the flivver that you could always start, even if you lost the keys, simply by crossing a couple of wires; that you could always stop, even if the brakes were gone, by simply throwing her into reverse.

You wouldn’t think a preacher and a farmer would know much about foot racing. Or would have much in common. Yet creation of a new world indoor mile record at Chicago last March was the direct result of the deliberate, precise planning of a preacher and a farmer—a servant of the Lord and a son of the soil who form one of the most unique and at the same time most sincere and most wholesome partnerships in the history of American sports.

The Light Touch

To tie a well shaped tie, don't tug and pull as if you were bent on self-strangulation. Take it easy. The light touch will result in a smooth knot and, just as important, the center crease just below it. This will keep the knot in place. The mirror gazer here is putting these final touches to tying his hand-painted silk tie, which is worn with a blue and white striped broadcloth shirt.

Half the fun of skiing is the pleasant kind of comradeship that develops in the cheerful atmosphere of the ski lodge. The low wooden ceiling holds that delightful aroma which is a blend of burning logs in the fireplace, blue smoke from pipe tobacco, and the spicy scent of hot buttered rum.

East is East and West is West, but the twain do meet in sportswear that was created for the climate of California only to find its way to all parts of the country. The casual jacket’s fashion progression serves as supporting evidence of the fact that California is of growing importance as a fount of sportswear ideas.
