I often recall the short-short story of the man who, at the peak of his business and social success, decided to dispense with a necktie—finally to hang himself with one when his life was ruined by such heresy. This tragic little fiction illustrates an enormous fact:

SITTING that morning in the shade under the improvised tarpaulin tent, Mr. Johnson absently listened to the harsh cry of hornbills and the gentler call of doves in the high fern trees back of the thatchroofed house. Because he was a patient and unhurrying man, it had not been too difficult for Mr. Johnson to live through a whole year of New Guinea rains and dry seasons, all the while knowing that the pilot of the plane, on their next flight to the coast, would try to kill him.

<p>THE closest I’ve ever come to athletic fame was to go out for track the same day as Cornelius Johnson. It was at L. A. High. In the locker room I happened to undress next to a tall, skinny, black-skinned boy— about fifteen years old, who was in my journalism class—a funny-looking kid with a boyishly grave face.</p>

Twenty minutes later, Fearless Frank struts out of a cage of mannerly animals to the tumultuous applause of an audience with barely enough strength to beat its hands together.

THE question of why a woman spends so much time on her appearance will undoubtedly baffle philosophers for several more ages. She will spend hours selecting a daring dress, but if you look closely at her, you get your face slapped. They say she dresses to please men, but her parade from one asinine fashion to another only infuriates the long-suffering male.

IT has been said that there is no life so melancholy as that of a former Ambassador. To have played a great role in the world, to have hobnobbed with statesmen and kings and steered your country’s vessel through the reefs of hostile diplomacy—and then, at the ripe age of sixty, when a man is just in his prime, to find yourself cast like a worn-out hulk on the shores of Santa Barbara, six thousand miles from Europe, to write memoirs and wait for death . . .

SOME four million males who see Hal Wallis' Paramount production, Bitter Victory, will go home growling because the women in their kitchens don't have voices that slink. Source of dissatisfaction: svelte and sultry Lizabeth Scott, a girl with a babytalk first name and a face and figure definitely adult.

ENLIGHTENING US on two counts, an exciting, twenty-year-old Andalusian gypsy stamps her heels and runs the gamut of emotions that are traditionally displayed in the fiery flamenco dance. Accompanied by a guitar, off-beat handclapping, and her own castanets, Manolita wordlessly explains why so many customers keep coming back to this little, out-of-the-way gypsy bar in Old Barcelona.

There was a time when the man who wore a watch on his wrist and smoked cigarettes was in for raised eyebrows and some mild slander. But the citizenry changed its tune after the first World War when Johnny came marching home preferring the convenient wrist watch to the pocket replica of Big Ben and continuing the cigarette habit he had picked up while sweating it out in the trenches.

There were no million dollar gates nor overflow crowds, but the enthusiasm of the spectators at a 1775 rifle frolic was equal to anything in modern times. Success with a long rifle was even more important to the fans in those days than the latter day ability to pitch a no-hit game and the man who could drill a target at three hundred yards was accorded adulation comparable to that of a world's champion.

TOP man on Broadway in more ways than one this season is a craggy-faced giant of a man in his mid-fifties who has the girls swooning in the aisles over his romantic appeal. In the unpredictable tradition of show business, Broadway has accepted, without batting an eye, the contradictory fact that this new and sensational personality has already been revered in the sanctified world of the opera for twenty-three years as one of its greatest actors and indisputably its finest basso.

When making old-fashioneds, place the set ups to be served in the drink in the refrigerator for an hour or so before serving. When ready to serve, just add the whiskey. The drink will be better because the glasses and fruit are thoroughly chilled.

As worthy of accompanying the succession of fabulous fish, flesh and fowl dishes shown here, Esquire lists three of the greatest wines obtainable today, from both American and foreign vineyards, appropriate to each entree. Chosen for general availability as well as for quality, and approved by a jury of wine and food authorities, these lists are not intended to exclude many equally fine and suitable wines, but merely to serve as a guide to taste-budding gourmets.

Distilled from fruits, mint, flowers and herbs, some of them secret formulae which have been jealously guarded for centuries, cordials by tradition are an after-dinner drink. (However, in tribute to their variety, it must be added that they have firmly established themselves in cocktail recipes.)

It was a 17th century monk, Dom Pérignon, the chief cellarer in charge of wine-making at the Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers, near Epernay, who first tasted the sparkling wine which we know today as champagne. On doing so, legend tells that he called to the other monks, “Come quickly!

If you expect your party to be fun for all and not a free-for-all, start thinking about it sometime ahead and don’t, on Tuesday night, ask everyone you know to “drop in” on Thursday. When you make up your guest list (allowing a good two weeks), don’t ask just the “old gang”, or only your “intelligent” friends or a group of people who have never met each other—or even worse—who won’t speak to each other.

There is nothing that can, on occasion, be as satisfying as the amber coolness of a glass of beer or ale with its foaming white collar and delicate aroma of hops. A simple and amiable beverage, it makes a man settle back in his chair, fosters conversation and promotes conviviality.

ROME: This Italy would seem like a different world to the Fifth Army soldier who knew it during the war. It would be much more familiar to the prewar tourist, back again for a visit after ten or more years. The Roman sunshine is sheer magic, but it would take an even more powerful spell to simulate the feeling of bustle and recovery and downright prosperity if the elements weren’t really there.
