We found food for thought in the following letter from Edmond Joseph Girard, somewhere in the Pacific, protesting against the coddling attitude of so many of the magazine articles and stories dealing with the “problem” of the returning servicemen.

EASTER RABBIT for the kiddies. A decorative wicker basket filled to overflowing with toys, a stuffed bunny and pastelcolored candies. Or “Harvey”, a stuffed Easter rabbit, soft and white (grown-ups, too, go for these). For your best girl, fine chocolates in a shimmering satin box which can be used for trinkets later.

PLASTIC VISION. Just a tiny, thin oval-shaped lens about the size of a nickel and made of featherweight, smooth, non-irritating plastic . . . that’s the modern contact lens that is proving so miraculous to men in the armed forces. Developed by scientists a century ago, the modern development of contacts started after the World War 1, when technicians found a way to grind optical corrections on blown glass lenses.

INS AND OUTS of feed-bag administrations at 12 East 49th Street—modern two-story building strategically situated — seem at last stabilized for keeps with the taking over by the Davegas, Harry and Dorothy, of albino gobbler fame, who have parlayed their duo of White Turkey restaurants in Manhattan into a trio, with this latest place as the biggest.

Look Out for Deflation
Giving the lie to that bugaboo, postwar inflation, and offering a four-way plan to withstand our real economic threat

JULIUS HIRSCH
<p>THREE years ago economists in official Washington reared up a bogey which still holds the American people in its thrall. Inflation is its name: so well have its creators done their work that scarcely anywhere on the home front can one elude traces of the fears they have instilled.</p>

<p>THEN after a thousand drab announcements, the voice of the ship’s P.A. system said, “There is still some jewelry left at the Chaplain’s office. Call by there now if you haven’t gotten yours yet. The Chaplain’s office in Lower Two now." The voyage had been consummately monotonous; every bit of the ship had become gallingly familiar in its limited space; there was the choice of standing, sitting, lying down or walking deviously through men who were standing, sitting and lying down.</p>

FROM those newspaper pictures I’ve seen ever since the invasion, I’ll bet our Army will go down as the most kissed in history. In every liberated country—Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg—it was the same story, as G.I. Joe found himself encircled by girls he had liberated: Smack!

SIDNEY CARROLL
OAHU is not the biggest of the Hawaiian islands, but it is certainly the busiest. Oahu is busy for two very good reasons: it contains Pearl Harbor and it contains the city of Honolulu. To the first-time visitor, like myself, Oahu in wartime seems like a beautiful place and a crazy place.

PHILIP HARKINS
OIL is the blood that flows through the veins of any war machine. Deprive the machine of oil and it quickly creaks to a stop. In Western Europe it is refined oil, gasoline, that kept our great Armies hammering against Germany. In the Far East it is oil and gas that keep our Navy lunging against Japan.

THIS day, over twenty-four years ago, back in 1920, was to be Big Red’s major test. Big Red was better known as Man o’ War. On this day, in the Dwyer Stakes at Aqueduct, Big Red was to run against Harry Payne Whitney’s John P. Grier over the mile and one-eighth route.

ROBERT SYLVESTER
<p>THE Monarch started forward as soon as the hard, white ball struck the frontwall. He picked up speed, turned into the granite sidewall and took three quick steps up its perpendicular height, like a man running up a short flight of stairs. The ball was coming back at him along the sidewall, high and hugging the surface the way extra spin will make them do, but he trapped it in the curved basket and shoved himself clear of the wall with his feet.</p>

LLOYD SHEARER
<p>SINCE it is axiomatic that in time of war morals go down and the incidence of crime goes up, the American criminal lawyer is again having his day, and the public is once again finding itself interested in the lives, careers and tactics of the men who made and are still making the practice of criminal law what it is in this country—an exciting, thrilling battle of wits between politically-ambitious prosecuting attorneys, zealous defense counsel and outmoded laws of justice.</p>

JAMES PAUL STOAKES
WHEN the president of Nicaragua called upon his good friends, the prostitutes of Managua, to break up a political demonstration a few weeks ago, they jumped at the chance to show their loyalty. Pouring into the downtown streets they found hundreds of black-robed women —respectable mothers, wives, daughters—quietly parading in protest against the recent mass arrest of six hundred of “Tacho” Somoza’s political opponents.

CHEEK to cheek with a pink satin future, Norma gets that way by right of her particularly bonny beauty and a heaven-sent ability to “fall into” a pose— which photographers will tell you is something you have to be born with. Norma has been falling into chic postures for the past year in high-fashion clothes, but vigorously denies she is sophisticated.

I came across the fact in browsing through From Sea to Sea, a volume of travel essays and correspondence written by Kipling between 1887 and 1889, and the picture fascinated me.

To say that Billy Rose is the foremost showman in the present American theatre is not entirely fair to him. There has come to be something about the word showman that isn’t especially complimentary.

A GENTLE touch of the hand, a smile, a kiss, the scent of a pressed flower, are supposed to nourish lovers. But only in the thoughts of idealistic fiction writers. To my mind, which is chiefly controlled by the stomach, one of the most important things for a young man in love to know is how to feed his girl.

The Stand of the Wooden Soldier
Christopher Sauer was a shock and a mystery to the Nazis, for he fit no category and responded to no command

ALFRED NEUMANN
<p>IT happened five years ago in Munich, in the courtyard of the Bodyguard Infantry barracks in Turkenstrasse, that Private Christopher Sauer “turned to wood,” as the company sergeant said. Since the man stood in a line of inductees, his rigidity was not noticed until the sergeant called the roll.</p>

Some places in the sports line-up require certain physical characteristics aside from skill. The coxswain of a rowing crew has to be pint size to lighten the load of the shell. So does a jockey. Other positions call for tallness. The first sacker on a baseball team has great height and reach.

O. E. SCHOEFFLER
AS veterans of the armed forces return to civilian life, and there are about a million annually, a refresher on fashion details may assist them to take the switch in stride. While they wore Uncle Sam’s uniforms, ranging from fatigue to combat, civilian clothes were certainly the very least of their worries.

GENERAL NOTE: In spite of the rush to make records, and the offering of one or two platters forty-eight hours after peace was signed (with Petrillo), nothing startling or wonderful has yet come through. The big companies are, naturally, recording those popular numbers which might be forgotten three months later.

The amateur psychologist sometimes plays a friendly little detective game with himself. Upon seeing boy with girl, he tries to deduce if she’s his wife, fiancée, or friend. His clues are gestures and inflections and the subtle telegraphy of glances which can give away so much.
