WE knew a black devil of a gunner’s mate in the Navy —part American Indian and part Irish (God help the enemy!) and possessed of decorations that admirals dream of —who once asked us a disconcertingly simple question. "How do you pick a wife?" he said—fresh from the innocence of Corregidor, years in a Japanese prison camp, and the blithe experience of welcoming the Army to the beach of Okinawa.

Congratulations to Esquire for publishing another controversial yet interesting article (Suicide of the Sexes, April, 1954), by Merle Miller and Maggie Smith. As for Mr. Miller, I only pity him the day when he settles down into the dull routine of a housewife’s regime.

RICHARD JOSEPH
<p>ABOARD the S.S. Constitution, cruising the Mediterranean: Cruising the Mediterranean— somehow that’s the way you always seem to think about sailing through this storied sea. You cross the North Atlantic, but you cruise the Mediterranean, and you sense the difference as soon as your ship passes the Pillars of Hercules guarding the approaches to the Mediterranean, one pillar anchored on Gibraltar, the other on Ceuta in Spanish Morocco, fifteen miles away across the Strait of Gibraltar.</p>

MILAN: Alta fedelta, they’d call it in Italy if they had it, but they don’t. Television, yes: Italy crawls with television, which is brand new this year and producing its usual revolting initial effects on the populace. The very postage stamps bear the portrait of a television set, a TV aerial, and the proud words, 1954: La Televisione in Italia.

EVER since women have taken up wearing slacks and bell bottoms have ceased to be something belonging exclusively to the Navy, there has been a lingering threat to man’s most triumphant symbol of his estate— his pants. So it’s nice when something good comes along to help him reassert what is rightfully his.

ALLEN CHURCHILL
PIERRE RUBÉ, M.D.
No, nymphomania isn’t fun. The disease you never talk about—outside of male jokes and gossip—is much misunderstood. Fact is, a good case can be made for it being one of the most abused terms in the language. We dismiss it as the final grade of female sexuality—Cold, Balanced, Sensual, Hypersensual or Nymphomaniac.

<p>I hadn’t seen Wally in over a dozen years—since we played in a jazz band together back in high school. It was a Sunday afternoon in early summer and I was strolling around the yacht harbor, taking in the sun and admiring all the yachts. Wally was helping some fellows paint the bottom of a large racing sloop that was hauled out on the marine ways.</p>

For here you will find the classic European one-ring circus in its purest form, each act representative of the development of centuries of this beautiful entertainment art form of the masses.</p>

IN August, 1938, the R.M.S. Queen Mary crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Ambrose Light Vessel, New York, to Bishop’s Rock, England, in record time: three days, twenty hours and forty-two minutes. The Atlantic had been flown a few times by a few daring military and civilian aviators, but air travel across an ocean, as a regular, scheduled matter, was still something for the future.

One of the saddest sights in Manhattan these days is the morning face of famous 52nd Street. Here, where the chill dawn once echoed to the sucker cries of Texas Guinan and Jack White, the mournful keening of almost every great name in jazz and the gruff "O.K." as another friend-of-a-friend was passed into a speak-easy, you can now see only the shabby fronts of its "night clubs"—festooned with peeling paint and pictures of peeling ladies—and these temples of naughty mystery lie revealed as boasting about as much sophistication and glamour as a Gypsy Tea Room.

COOLING as a straight breeze in the doldrums, heady as a surf-edged sea, few things are as mollifying on a hot day as a cold beer. And beer can do another thing for you in summertime: it can transfigure food as well as man; it can rouse your flagging bon appétit; in other words, it can be eaten.

Mixed Grill: 1 lamb chop and 1 lamb kidney for each guest; large mushrooms; split tomatoes; large white sausages (Bratwurst style); bacon (Canadian preferably). When kidneys and mushrooms are small, they may slip through the bars of the grill and it’s better to do them in a frying pan—in butter.

To that immemorial plaint of the female—here I am slaving away over a hot stove while you, etc., etc.—we herewith vouchsafe a thoroughly masculine reply, to wit and viz.: you need a change, darling, so why don’t you slave away over a cold stove? Because the science of cold "cookery" is one of the neatest tricks of the hot-weather season, calculated to bring both color and flavor to your board.

Italy’s Ghia designers worked out this idea-car with Chrysler engineers—the idea being to combine svelte lines from European racers with a smooth-riding Dodge chassis that wouldn’t shatter everything in your luggage. The Firearrow is 75½" wide—more than twice its 34" height—and crouches like a springing cat on its 115" wheel base.
