WE have never been spoilsports, as the festive pages of this magazine attest. But, musing on the new year, we have decided to draw up a charter and bill of rights for a harried group and band together for the abolition of The New Year’s Eve “Party.”

I have just completed the October article, Time Out For Mayhem, by Booton Herndon. Up until the last few paragraphs, I had the same feelings a Texan might have as he read Let's Secede From Texas! My opinion changed, how ever, with the summation of the story.

MEXICO city:—If you let any amount of time intervene between your trips to Mexico you’ll scarcely recognize the place when you go back. So the information in Mexico (on page 89) is not completely warranted —Mexico may be even more fun than that by the time you arrive.

PARKE CUMMINGS
THERE’S one thing that impresses me when I read modern short stories or view movies or television dramas, to wit: heroes and heroines never get formally introduced to each other these days. I mean never. They meet by chance, usually in an atmosphere fraught with violence and intense antipathy.

JAMES A. MAXWELL
EVERYONE admitted that Ebenezer Scrooge was a new man after his Christmas experience. At first there were cynics who predicted that as soon as the holiday season was over and the old man recovered from the effects of his nightmares and the first decent meal he had eaten in a score of years, his basic personality would reassert itself.

<p>THE town of Roaring Gulch, which lay nestled on a western slope of the Sierras, roared no longer. Deep shafts, abandoned decades ago, pockmarked the surrounding countryside. Beside these broken-timbered shafts rose great hills composed of worked ore, brown slag, and pulverized rock, from which tufts of buffalo grass and small shrubs now grew.</p>

BETTY SOUTH
<p>So you’re tired of the dirty old city? Going to get that little place in the country where you can have peace and quiet, a carefree existence, and the kids can have a yard and a dog? You yearn for a spot where the morals are higher, the living costs lower, the crowds smaller, the privacy and personal freedom larger? And you think you can have all this and a fat savings account, too, in die country? The hordes of Americans who are deserting metropolitan areas to build a ranch house in the country are lining the pockets of fast-moving real-estate dealers and self-appointed-last-week contractors.</p>

WELL, out in Hollywood they live dangerously. A girl goes to ballet school in France from the age of nine, grows up and around, comes to New York with a very-hot-stuff ballet company and gets the useful nickname of “Les Legs.” RKO Pictures signs her on a lavish contract and out she goes to the pirate coast, ready for adventure, romance, an appearance on the silver screen... and what happens? Nothing.

IT TOOK me more than thirty years to understand the true wickedness of men. Women, I have learned, are evil by nature; but men are evil deliberately and selfishly. Especially is this true of men in love. Jacques Venoir is a superb example of my thesis.

Cadillac takes the curve to the future on the inside, passing just about everyone with the sparkling Eldorado, the highest-priced, highest-powered production number in their line-up. It gives 210 h.p., compression of 8.25 to one, and employs the new Cad 12-volt electrical system.

RUSSELL I, reigning Prince of Outer Baldonia, idly flipped the pages of a fishing catalogue as he spoke. “One thing is sure—when the Soviets attack Outer Baldonia our only reaction is to feel sorry for them. I'm positive they never ran into anything like Outer Baldonia before, and it has them utterly baffled.”

IT isn’t easy for a waiter to ignore a frantically waving diner, and in some cases many years of patient practice and study have gone into it. I learned this recently, after laboring for years under the impression that it was a natural characteristic which waiters were born with.

CHARLES EMBREE
SITTING in a chrome-and-leather tomb the other night, square in the middle of that giant graveyard they call Kansas City, I was inhaling some prewar helium and praying for a quick ascent when one of the local ghosts faded in and sat down at the bar beside me.

<p>MEXICO CITY is a world capital where the ancient Aztec Indian, the sixteenth-century Spanish grandee and the contemporary craftsman in concrete and stainless steel have collaborated to produce fascination. The city is a place of violent contrasts, where brilliant colors manage somehow to blend instead of clash, and a barefoot Indian peon astride a burro looks imperturbably at a fellow countryman flashing by in a green Cadillac convertible.</p>

Tony and Sally DeMarco, warm as toast, leave the Hotel Plaza and venture onto the windiest corner in New York; one fur coat is Hers and the other is His. All of which is not to say that you ought to rustle around the hope chest until you find that old coon you wore to the 1928 Yale game—the fur coat for men is on its way back, but it isn’t coon.

Clothes for the evening have changed during the last hundred years about as little as ladies of the evening during the last hundred centuries. They were blue at the beginning (Beau Brummell cast his stem gaze at the first black dress suit he had seen, and told its inhabitant, “You look like a crow”), and then in recent years the jackets were blue again.

<p>MUSIC is probably as old as mankind. Archaeologists have unearthed perforated bones which prove that flutelike instruments were played more than 50,000 years ago. The savage tribes visited by our earliest explorers all sang and danced, and some of the carols you sing this Christmas Eve have been traced back to the ancient Druid worship and to the Roman Saturnalia.</p>

<p>THE most attractive of all forms of gambling, a small but enthusiastic group of Americans believe, is betting on the New York theatre. It is more exciting than canasta and more challenging than poker. It gives better odds than roulette. It pays off with the munificence of the numbers game.</p>
