Yvonne Ménard, star nude of the Folies Bergère, exudes her animal magnetism in three pages of pictures, while Paul Deutschman describes her as a “kind of artistic Nature-Girl-in-the-Raw who really enjoys going around naked.” You’ll also get a backstage—and off-stage— view of Lilli Palmer in Consider the Lilli, by Helen Lawrenson, with pages of pictures of the glamorous actress who has a mind of her own.

ESQUIRE appeared, for the first time, in October, 1933. Conceived at the darkest moment of the depression (in fact, our salesmen first went out with dummies of the first issue on March 4, 1933, two days before the Bank Holiday began) and born at the dawn of the New Deal, we characterized it in our first promotional efforts as a magazine devoted to "the art of living and the new leisure."

My attention has been directed to the splendid compliment which you paid me by including my name in your list of persons who measured up to the qualifications for membership in your “400.” While I am not so presumptuous as to feel that this high honor is wholly merited, still I trust that I am not entirely unworthy of your good opinion and take this opportunity to thank you for your kind and favorable thoughts.

DRESSED in swim trunks, a blue sports shirt, and a plaster cast (on his right leg), George Frazier greeted us in his private room, No. 511, at Lenox Hill Hospital up on Park Avenue— where the nurses, at least the one servicing Mr. Frazier, are darkhaired colleens not at all like the usual battleship type and where the service is so good that there were a dozen cold bottles of beer waiting for us on this, one of the hottest afternoons of all time.

"As far as I'm concerned," Bob Feller once told me, "most umpires are a bunch of rabbiteared rednecks—and getting more so all the time." That was in 1947. As of 1953, they were still getting more so—more neurotically sharp-eared and arrogant, that is, about any word uttered against them....

Voyaging to Bermuda, the happy isles in the Gulf-warmed Atlantic

RICHARD JOSEPH
IF The Bermudas on page 98 has done its job for you, you should be about ready to settle down to the serious but pleasant business of planning your vacation in Bermuda. First thing to consider is your hotel. This is somewhat more important here than in most places because where you stay will pretty much determine what you do in Bermuda.

Go outside and shake the near est tree, real hard, and the chances are a pianist will drop out of the upper foliage. The woods are full of them, to the point where the casual record buyer can't tell the players from the scenery without a score card—especially since some excellent pianists (like Artur Rubinstein) don't give their best to a microphone.

IN the thirty years of its evolution from a modest Greenwich Village she been into a plush, expensive, and celebrated restaurant occupying three brownstones on Fifty-second Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in New York City, Jack & Charlie's "21" has achieved both a prosperity, which enables it to give favored pa trons $50 wedding gifts, and an appeal eclectic enough to win the endorsement of both Lucius Beebe and the Salvation Army.

<p>SHORTLY after the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr.—the most Rooseveltian of the late President's four sons—to his present seat in Congress, a humor magazine published a cartoon comment. The drawing showed an old and visibly rich man straining to rise from a sickbed and shaking his fist apoplectically at his doctor.</p>

THE black bear came down to the stream, walking the way bears always walk, all hunched over like a monkey hugging a football, her head low and reasonably alert but not alert enough because 200 yards away Henderson lay on the rocky shelf and used the 30-30 on her perfectly.

MONROE FRY
WITH the world what it is, and men what they are, a girl has to look out for herself, and the well-upholstered, attractive widow of thirty-five had set herself on marrying again. All she had from some fifteen years of married life were a bank account exhausted by her husband's long illness and a house in Jersey which, by now, was pretty decrepit inside and out.

<p>I WENT out to the local drive-in the other night with a friend of mine by the name of Al. There was a war picture playing.

IT was early on a Saturday afternoon in May, and the bar was unusually quiet. The soft spring air had lured many of the regular customers to brighter, cleaner pastimes, and the few men who stood at the bar drank their drinks slowly and silently, as though they were planning some long-range, global strategy.

Conceived in the grand manner for City Fathers escorting visiting V.I.P.s on the day of the big parade, Chrysler's Imperial Phaeton is a fine, graceful piece of machinery. An expensive order, but it's a lot of car: 147½" wheel base, 180horse engine (the same engine has been stepped up to 310 horses in the experimental K-310), power steering, power brakes, "Oriflow" shock absorbers.

I reached over with one hand and mashed a soft, gutty Duke Ellington on the phonograph.

IF you are a big shot in Russia you don’t have to own and maintain a car. The government does it for you. The Kremlin gives you an automobile, and quite an expensive one at that. It isn’t a gift, to be sure. The car is yours to use only, and if you fall from Malenkov’s grace you lose the use of the car among other good things of life (and perhaps life itself).
