The typical Esquire reader, as once we told you at length, is (to put it shortly) a successful, youngish man of affairs who enjoys his extensive social life, his well-appointed home, his automobiles, and his travels and who loves his wife, his dog and his one-and-a-half children.

“A FASHION SCOUT,” cracked a wit back in the days before the Riviera was a suburb of Hollywood, "is a guy who swims around jetties.” We couldn’t help thinking of this as wo pondered the life of our own Fashion Editor, a man well used to the most exclusive cabañas at la côte d’azur, and not a bad hand either on the slopes at Sun Valley or swapping ad libs with a starlet on the latest television show.

That article, What's Wrong with Our Women?, by Leland Stowe ought to get a rise out of a lot of readers. I liked it; but then I happen to agree with Stowe, though I believe that men, as well as women, are spoiled in America — as children. I suppose Shakespeare might refer readers to his great tragedy itself for some needed lessons.

Advice to the Male Animal
Once a stalking female draws a bead, a man’s days of freedom may be numbered. But a spirited male chooses his own huntress and will be taken only on his terms
[no value]
[no value]
LELAND STOWE
THE ancient Romans, who recognized Diana as the goddess of the chase, knew a thing or two. They knew that the female of the species is, and always has been, the huntress and not the hunted; and they knew too, I’m sure, just what it is she hunts. As a globe-trotting caribou who has seen a good deal of the world and the chase, I think my age and experience give me the right to insist that in any society and any country it’s always open season on males.

ALL morning I’d been trying to forget it, filing it off in a corner of my mind like jury duty or the income tax, but Susie would never let me forget anything. When I got back to the office at twelve, she came in with her appointment book. “I confirmed your lunch date with Mr. Inyo’s secretary,” she said.

<p>As far as atomic bombs go, Uncle Sam is like a free-swinging puncher—all offense and no defense. So far, the United States is known to have exploded five Abombs, and we probably set off three more in the hush-hush experiments of Eniwetok in the Spring of 1948.</p>

THESE theatrical posters plastered the countryside between 1884 and 1909 and no doubt brought tears to the gentle eyes of the ladies while the menfolk tried to catch a side glance while keeping a straight face. The theatre may have changed some since Grandmother wore her bustle and the candles may have been turned in for that little gadget Mr. Edison invented, but as anyone can see from these colorful numbers, the essential business of telling folks what’s happening on the boards has remained fairly constant.

A Bloody Dollar
The fight promoter is the man who fixes the price on cauliflower ears. To be successful, he needs a sharp eye for the angles, and a strong back for the insults
[no value]
[no value]
JIMMY CANNON
Too many fight promoters are mud-gutter financiers who can’t afford to be governed by principles. Theirs is a hazardous occupation which often requires the instincts of a cold-natured roulette dealer and a hockshop keeper. The trade can bankrupt a man faster than horse playing, and there is no standard formula for success.

The Thirty-seventh Car
It was cold and wet, and young Artie Hadley was glad when a big black coupé stopped. But the ride he got was as raw as the weather, and a lot more dangerous

KEN W. PURDY
THEY have some grey and rainy days in the sunny South. Artie Hadley stood beside the road, resting one foot on his beat-up suitcase, and shivered a little. It was four o’clock, he’d made three hundred miles since morning, and he was tempted to take a dollar out of his thin store and hole up for the night in a tourist court.

THE never-ending discussion as to whether the photographer can challenge the painter in the creation of mood and composition sometimes stops still over a work which says much for the lens. Something of the classic serenity of a fine canvas has been captured here: we leave the decision to your own pleasant contemplation.

R. U. GODSOE
A ROMANTIC, according to the boys in the back room, is a guy who goes out after dark seeking, among the night’s mysteries, mementoes of old times, who keeps love letters tied in ribbon and fancies himself a knight in armor. To the realist mind the romantic is an escapist.

RICHARD JOSEPH
IT must have been a fat, frolicsome and fully masculine Fate that arranged it so that the United States would be bordered, on the south by Latin civilizations. Unquestionably it was a Fate that had spent at least one February in a northern city, then decided that what frostbitten American men needed was some midwinter fun in the sun.

LUCIUS BEEBE
FROM times of earliest record right down to the immediate now, the relationship between alcohol and gentility, even nobility, has been an extremely close one both in literature and in fact. The phrases “drunk as a lord” and “to drink like a gentleman” are only samples of the way in which liquor and the assimilation of liquor have insinuated themselves into the language; and the literature of drinking is almost illimitable.

JOHNNY HAMMOND crouched in the thin shadow of the burned wagon and bathed his sister’s white face with a wet rag torn from his shirt. This was the second day after the raid, and he was beginning to understand that his sister and he were two tiny ciphers in the middle of a vast land bounded by sky and distant horizons; and that this land was filled with blood brothers of the same Indians he had hunted so bravely in his father's grove back home in Illinois.

As he waited for the beer, Petrillo glowered sweatily at me, then exploded: “Some of the goddam unions!

WHEN you are in territory where spinning wheels or oxen yokes often are seen on front porches, never drive fast too close behind an automobile driven by a woman. The spinning wheels and yokes are signs that you are in an antique-shoppe area where any car a woman is driving may stop suddenly—without notice and with a whine and smell of hastily braked tires.

BEN HOGAN
I’VE often wondered why the businessman who plays golf expects to acquire a good golf swing as easily as he learned to shave. When he was a limber and muscular kid playing baseball—a game that the average American boy plays almost instinctively— the golfer practiced fielding, batting, throwing, and base-running for hours and got into fairly good muscle habits.

A trapper in British Columbia has a lot of spare time, especially when a chinook is on and it rains and snows alternately for days at a stretch. At such times, there’s little for the old trapper to do but flop in his bunk with a magazine. Occasionally, in almost every type of magazine, there will appear an animal story or a nature story or article.

ALTHOUGH they say that there is more to the old Indian rope trick than meets the eye, it is our opinion that what meets the eye in this trick is okay and the hell with the other end of the rope. The much publicized mystery of the East, it becomes clear, is the same one that puzzles all the sahibs we know.

MR. Willibald Jerome Trask looked at his watch. It was six-seventeen and the train was due to leave in two minutes, but as yet the smoker was only three-quarters full. From long experience, Trask figured there was a fifty-fifty chance that he would have a double seat to himself.

<p>SHE had a mink coat, the short kind, and she wore it casually over her shoulders. Her hat was a small mink turban atop the up-swept blonde hair-do. What I could see of her dress above the table top was shiny blue and strapless. She wore a diamond necklace and diamond earrings, and the blue of the dress matched her eyes.</p>

GENE RIDER
HE was going to the theatre when others were leaving, and he had a determined walk as though he’d just made a big decision. Otherwise, there was little to distinguish him from thousands of men in the aftertheatre crowds. He was thirty-five, wore a blue suit, a grey topcoat, and a grey hat, and he would have blended well, almost anonymously, with any crowd.

If one color can be said to be best for most men, it's blue. It is basic in the wardrobe of well-groomed men. However, to take full advantage of blue, accessories should be carefully and properly coordinated to the suit and to each other. You'll make no mistake if you approach the general effect of the gentleman on the left if you are his color-type.

The well-groomed man knows that correct appearance means that he is noticed, and not his clothes. And that is why he is particular about details. Obviously, faults in the matter of dress merely accentuate that part of his wardrobe. Fortunately, the amount of money you spend for clothes has little bearing on correctness of detail.

They waved extra hard when they thought of entries in the ship's log, listing all of the desertions on the Hawaiian run the year before.
