We were almost as much impressed by the letter that came to us from out in the Pacific by Lt. (j. g.) R Goggin as we were by the poem he enclosed with it, which appears on page 57 of this issue. Lt. Goggin is the Commanding Officer of one of those craft which are seldom identified more specifically than by the phrase “auxiliary vessels.”

OVER the past dozen years or so we’ve pursued a rather slap-happy policy, or lack of policy, concerning the use of this page. We have dared to devote it to some pretty serious appeals, on occasion, to the better side of our readers’ natures. Then again we’ve just sort of tossed it up for grabs, letting it concern itself with any random bits of trivia that happened to catch our fancy at the moment.

While having breakfast in bunk the other morning and teasing the 1st Sgt. over a certain lack of creaminess in the dijon-mustard-dressing which he had thoughtfully mixed for the sausage cakes, we read Iles Brody’s “Man the Kitchenette” wherein Mr. Brody advised us we’d be a smooth man of the world in the eyes of our beloved if we followed his hints forthwith when we took her to dinner.

WEDDING GIFT DELUXE. So you got a bid to the reception, too. Well, that means you’re in for a gift, bud. If the nuptial pair is the type who hauls down a staggering amount of loot, you can get credit for originality and good taste by presenting them with an authentic walnut or mahogany Duncan Phyfe game table . . . which is more than meets the eye.

WITH all Central Park to inhale from, ozone hounds sidewalktabled at the Hotel St. Mortiz’s Café de la Paix seem preoccupied with the fragrance of Scotchesand-sodas, mint juleps, rum Collinses, and such .. . Spud blimper Charles of Charles à la Pomme Soufflée, 157 East 55th, sighs with regret that he cannot expand his small restaurant likewise so that more worshippers of his viands and vins might be wedged in . . . A-swing and asway under a Roof-full of Sammy Kaye enthusiasts, the Hotel Astor is miscounting on Harry James, next man up, to quiet the situation.

CORRECTING final examinations on a sultry June afternoon was tiresome. Arthur Hopkins, instructor in English, swung his swivel chair away from the window. Half a dozen pink booklets still were to be read. When these were marked he would be finished with English 17, 18—Survey of English Literature from Beowulf to Bernard Shaw.

DARRELL HUFF
On any list of the qualities that make American fighting men great, you'd have to give a place in a peculiar kind of screw ball ingenuity. American engineers at Aachen had it when they invented that extemporaneous secret weapon, tho Aachen Express, by loading abandoned trolley cars with captured explosives and coasting them down into the besieged city.

CAR turned his back to the bar and rested his elbows on it, looking at this girl. He thought her hair was the richest, softest, blackest he had ever seen: it dropped from her bright little face all the way to her shoulders, contrasting with her fair skin, matching her dark eyes.

M.S. MILLER
I THOUGHT as I drove into it that it was the ugliest town I had ever seen in my life. It lay in a white and dusty strip at the foot of a spiny bare hill. Rickety fingers of deserted silver mines prodded its sides at every corner. The light, which was oddly white and glaring for an inland state, exposed the broken store fronts and gravel-filled plots of the shanties with a kind of aggressiveness.

Back in the eighties and nineties when lumber was King in Wisconsin, the “three H’s” were considered the toughest places anywhere, and the first two a little tougher than the third.

OUR first meeting was in the Fall of 1941, when I'rented an apartment in the Fifties, just off Third Avenue. He was a tall, thin man with a high forehead and humorous, watchful eyes behind very thick spectacles—more like a schoolteacher, I thought, than the proprietor of a Third Avenue tavern reeking of stale beer.

THE first time I saw the old man he was having an argument in the bargain basement at Whorfle’s, where I used to work. He was arguing with a clerk at a hardware counter.
