Have You a Mistress?, by Fred C. Kelly. This is not a blueprint for setting up extra-marital housekeeping, says the author, but in an urbane and objective way he weighs this ancient possibility. His conclusion, and his reasoning on the way to it, is worth a vote—yes or no—from every man.

WHAT the college man thinks about Esquire has always been of the greatest importance to us. That lively, inquisitive, cynical, and idealistic critic is probably the most honest friend in the world. If you’re okay, he’ll tell you so; if you’re lousy, to use one of his gentler words, you’ll find out in short, tough order.

IN April, 1948, after eleven years as a professional golfer, CLAUDE HARMON had never won a big-time tournament. When he went up to the Augusta (Georgia) National Golf Club that spring month to play in the $2500 Masters’ Tournament, everyone was glad to see him but few even gave him an outside chance against such top entries as Ben Hogan, Lloyd Mangrum, and Sammy Snead.

In the November Backstage you have me maintaining that I saw considerable military service. I don’t mean to be overly scrupulous on this point, but for the sake of the gentlemen in the best medical training battalion ever seen at Fort Barkeley, Texas, who really remember, will you kindly amend to read “inconsiderable”?

F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
IT WAS a wild chance, but Donald was in the mood, healthy and bored, with a sense of tiresome duty done. He was now rewarding himself. Maybe. When the plane landed he stepped out into a midwestern summer night and headed for the isolated pueblo airport, conventionalized as an old red “railway depot.”

QUENTIN REYNOLDS
THE gift of being able to age gracefully is one that is confined to certain wines, Italian-made violins, meerschaum pipes, and a very few cities. New Orleans and San Francisco are perhaps the only two cities in America whose present charm is based on the architectural and spiritual qualities of the past.

There was a Man: Robert Rogers, Ranger

Geoffrey Biggs
<p>MAJOR ROBERT ROGERS, Ranger, who fought the French and Indians for the British during the Seven Years’ War (1755-63) was this kind of man: He could get along without food or sleep for days; he could lie alert in one spot for twelve hours without moving while flies and mosquitoes chewed him up; he could handle snowshoes, rafts, canoes, skates and whaleboats; he could be up in the morning before most men had gone to bed; he could strip to the skin in a snowstorm and dive into an icy river to rescue a man or a raft; he could march fifty or sixty miles a day over deep snow in subzero weather and do the same thing six months later under a broiling sun; he could get a night’s rest in the branches of a tree; he could reverse his snowshoes so they were like crude skis, hurl himself down an almost vertical 550-foot precipice and come up fighting; he could reach warmth and civilization after a starving, sleepless, freezing, heartsick march of hundreds of miles through wasteland and wilderness, and almost immediately, with no rest and little food, start back to his point of departure with food and clothes for the Rangers he had left there.</p>

NO picture of a face can tell a complete story about the subject, since the actual work—great or small—goes on behind that façade. In these remarkable photographs, however, Yousuf Karsh demonstrates how the camera can find the uniform characteristics of achievement in the faces of supreme violinist Jascha Heifetz and novelist Thomas Mann.

America’s leaders are men of ideas, no less in their person than in their careers. They represent an American aristocracy of accomplishment, and so it is not surprising that in the absence of a playboy ruling class, their ideas on dress as well are seriously observed by other men.

CLAUDE HARMON
THE term par, as used in the U.S. today to describe a theoretically perfect round of golf, concedes two putts on each green. A par 72 round, then, is fifty per cent putting. To say it another way, a par round on a 6800-yard course would have “Colonel Par” hitting 36 shots to cover some 6600 yards of playing area, while the other 36 strokes would be used up on the greens in something less than 200 yards.

Appearance: As men age, they frequently find that their bay windows overlook the grave. Those who learn to hold their abdomens in live longest. Internal organs which are pushed down and out do not function properly as long as they should; so remember that “down and out” will mean just that!

The notion that bulging biceps have something to do with a longer life has no basis in medical fact. Physical fitness actually depends on a moderate amount of exercise, properly prescribed to keep pace with our time of life—supplemented by proper diet and a sound mental attitude.

It may come as a surprise to many that the principal benefits of sports are other than exercise. It’s true enough that when schools and colleges made such individual sports as golf, tennis and squash a required part of the curriculum, athletics greatly affected the physical well-being of American men.

DOLPH SHARP
FELLOW named Joe Goodliver was a modest sort of gourmet. He drank Chablis with the fish and Bordeaux with the beef, and he reserved the rite of salad mixing for himself, rubbing the bowl with a clove of garlic and adding a dash of Tabasco. When it came to pipes, though, Joe smoked them straight, untreated, as is.

Dahl, the director, seemed smugly unaware of the deadly listlessness of the star—and, consequently, of the whole cast.

THE blue-glass bottle had contained a hundred five-grain quinine tablets when the two men started into the African bush. That should have been more than plenty for the two-week trip.

He counted the years on his fingers—grade school, junior high, high school, a year of college, four years in the Army, three more years of college. . . . At least fifteen years.

HARRY BOTSFORD
IF you were to extract from the run-of-the-kitchen cookbooks all and sundry recipes for the cookery of fowl, many of the cookbooks would collapse into thin and puny volumes. Which probably wouldn’t be a public disaster, since the female compilers of these household manuals have often shown a distressing lack of imagination in the development of ways and means of converting fowl into dishes of true gastronomic excellence.

Within a year, the population numbered a hundred and fifty sober citizens; there was a church, and a newspaper edited by a lively fellow named Samuel Brannan.
