ONE of the curious facts about U.S. business is the stamp of personality so many organizations bear. Hotels actually have a different character, not so much a matter of price as of tone. Even some railroads are proud of being sluggish, others of being fleet— each has its virtues.

JUST as prize fighters and politicians are becoming profile conscious and party to the magic of the make-up box, so now the editor—hitherto the ink-stained wretch of classic phrase—has turned to pancake and eye stain. A gentleman you may have noticed more and more on your TV screen is our fashion editor Oscar Schoeffler, whose frequent invitations to appear have earned him more pin stripes than a veteran top sergeant.

The New Tax Law May Cost You Less

J. K. LASSER
"TAXES TO RISE AGAIN." "INDIVIDUALS TO PAY BIG SHARE OF TAX BOOST." That was the kind of headline you saw day after day last fall, when the new tax law was passing through Congress. But those headlines didn’t tell you—and many of the stories that ran under the headlines didn’t tell you either—that the 1951 tax law made a lot of cuts in taxes, too— about 500 million dollars’ worth.

FELLOW called Herb Shriner (Indiana boy) is Esky’s man-of-the-month. Because he’s the man we’d like most to be lost with on the bench in front of the fire station back home. We were passing the time of day with Herb while he had a late breakfast and haunted by a sense of having been there before.

THE camera is exact: it sees and tells the truth. According to our Chinese edition of Life, a snap of its bulbous lens is worth a thousand words. Like a scout, it is trustworthy; it does not quail at the ugly or lunge lecherously at the beautiful.

<p>IT was about 5:15 p.m., 108 miles northeast of Oran, I remember, when the starboard gunners shouted, "Torpedo off the bow!"

EARL WILSON
NUDISM is supposed to be one of the funniest things in America. To find out why, I "uncovered" the nudists’ convention at Sunshine Park, New Jersey. All I had on was my sneakers, which don’t do much for you when you’re otherwise bare. I spent the night in this nudist camp—the first newspaperman who’s ever been so enterprising or, possibly, so idiotic.

BEN STAHL came to Paris like an old friend. He hadn’t been there before, but an artist can recognize the beloved shapes and colors of Pissaro and Monet and Renoir. The honks of the taxicabs and the feel of the misty blue atmosphere were not really new to him—everyone has heard and read and dreamed about Paris, where good Americans go when they die.

<p>WHEN Boston’s first Tremont House opened its doors in 1829, the traveling public was treated to two startling innovations. One was the introduction of free bath soap to guests; the other, more radical, was the existence of single rooms for such eccentrics as might want them.</p>

NORTH BRITISH STATION HOTEL, EDINBURGH: There’s no question about it, Scotland is one of the most exciting countries on this side of the Atlantic, and Edinburgh one of the most exciting cities. You feel the tremendous drive and swirl of Edinburgh as soon as you alight from the Flying Scot at Waverly Station or get out of your car anywhere in the New Town—"New" because it was built as recently as the seventeen hundreds, which is the day before yesterday as the Scots figure time.

LORD DUNSANY
<p>PUNCTUATION is of course of considerable importance in writing a story, but nobody can imagine a story being made out of punctuation; and it was for this reason, if so wretched a device can be dignified by the name of a reason, that the clique in the Billiards Club, of which I am tired of complaining, adopted punctuation as a topic for discussion as Jorkens came into the dining room.</p>

WEIGHTY matters press upon these brows behind the great doors of the world’s newest experiment in staying alive, but the brows—some of the world’s highest—are not unduly squeezed. Whatever the question before the meeting—the number of atoms in a bomb, the number of poppies in Egypt, the number of pigs in Pakistan—a delegate speaks for his country.

IF you’d like to have your house painted, but are stymied by the prices you’ve heard that painters charge, here’s good news: It’s the one-coat job. New-type paints—developed since War II by a number of leading firms—are so much better-hiding, longer-lived than they once were, that they cover most old painted surfaces in one coat, instead of two.

Houses are like gals— smart make-up can hide a lot of errors. Take our house at the left. The roof, which is too small and too high, is complicated by a busy dormer. The walls are narrow, and change direction every few feet. The windows are varied.

HENRY LEE
<p>IT is the first principle of modern American business that a girl in the hand is worth five salesmen on the road. Experience has shown that a pretty girl—in or out of a pretty picture—can sell a man anything, anything at all. So sex, which used to be confined pretty much to the home, has blossomed into a big business with a gross income of more than $100,000,000 a year.</p>

GETTING around in a grey worsted suit is something you ought to do. This two-button type shows the trend toward the easy line and more natural shoulder width. With it, wear blue broadcloth shirt with low-front or spread collar, either of the two ties shown here, blue-bordered handkerchief, town-type shoes and a grey hat.

I HATED to see it. Barney was too smart a guy not to know what the score was with Sue. He’d brushed off a dozen girls just like her and never once kidded himself into thinking that this time it might be different. He knew what a lot of men never find out: that when a young, good-looking girl sets her sights for a man who hasn’t got all his hair and isn’t known for the jokes he cracks, there’s just one reason.

BON SOIR, 40 West 8th Street. The easy-on-the-eyes décor in this small but comfortable club complements some of the best entertainment in the bailiwick. The entertainment menu is replete with plenty of change-ofpace features. The indestructible Mae Barnes’ performance is nostalgic and amusing.
