Now again is the time of the ivy and the laurel. Now the drum majorette encounters for the first time the awe-ful cadences of Milton. Now the man-about-campus, scarcely able to spell, stares spellbound at the propositions of Euclid. Now the fat boy, center and hero of his high-school team, learns that he is not a football player but simply overgrown.

MARTIN MAYER
VIENNA: This story starts with a little record store in downtown New York, and an English violinist-businessman named James Grayson, who was the store’s best customer. The store’s proprietor was Michael Naida, a nonpracticing Doctor of Medicine who was born in Poland, and educated there and in Germany—a charming, fiery, small gentleman who always finds it impossible to disagree with you; instead, he despises your opinion.

IF you ever wondered whose oyster the world is, meet Charles H. Baker, Jr., Esquire’s candidate for master of the world mollusk—probably served, in his case, à la Rockefeller. Here is one of the few remaining adventurers, sportsmen and bons vivants of our time and, what’s more, he sustains his enviable way of life by wining and dining all over the globe, then strolling back to his hotel room and writing about it.

A voice of experience I read H. V. Schieren’s account of 1900 steam motoring (Long Island Motor Tour, 1900, June, 1954) doubtless with far more understanding than any other reader of Esquire. I was born in 1884 and raised in Pittsburgh, across the street from Andy Mellon’s papa and mama, and am named for his father, Judge Thomas Mellon.

HONG KONG, which you’ll read about on page 94, is spelled “B-A-R-G-A-I-N-S” to most visitors. On their first look at Hong Kong shop windows, women have been known to dilate their nostrils, lift their chins, shake their heads and whinny. And I’ve seen strong men blanch, fall back and lean against the arm of a passerby at the sight of some of the price tags.

IT may strike you that this department is somewhat overconcerned with women when it is not women but peace which is the fashionable topic at the moment. Yet peace is the subject which really engages me. For, says I, remove from domestic life the casus belli, well, then, no belli... It is not women I am proposing to eliminate at this point, but instead, one of the myths they have propagated for centuries and which they have used as another link in the chains that bind us.

I Keep a Mistress

James McNeill Whistler II
I live with an actress; this has been a lasting affair of some two years now... I suppose this happens in the life of any gay young dog, but if it is of any interest to your readers I should like to write a story about it called I Keep a Mistress. My particular mistress is an actress by the name of Dawn Addams... I have been with her through the ups and downs, tragedies and excitements of battling the elements of Hollywood and perhaps I have a view on it not open to many.

I guess it was Jim’s story that started me worrying about what’s going on in our biggest and best corporations. He’d pulled a $ 10,000 boner out in Topeka. Nobody said anything about it—he figured maybe they’d never find out—but Jim is the I-cannot-tell-a-lie type and he finally got up courage to make a clean breast of it to the Old Man.

THE bushel basket, carelessly covered with an old dish towel, held well over $25,000 in singles, fives, tens and twenties. The Cajun who lived on the bank of a meandering, sluggish bayou near Thibodaux in southern Louisiana fished among the bills for $182 and gave them to the insurance man in payment for policies covering himself, his wife and one child.

TO the little town of Goshen crowd some 20,000 harness-racing fans to see the country’s best three-year-old Standardbreds pound around Good Time Track in the biggest harness stake race of the year. Ordinarily it takes a lifetime of driving to maneuver through this murderous tangle of hoofs and spindly wheels at three fourths the speed of a racing Thoroughbred.

AFTER four years of what he frequently insisted was a permanent retirement from the field, Artie Shaw has again returned to music. No one has been particularly surprised to discover that the clarinetist is still one of the greatest living jazz soloists or that his tone is as clear and his playing as relaxed and inventive as ever.

ERIC ST. CLAIR
THE man who smokes a pipe always has something to talk about. From his store of erudition he can remark between puffs, “Just get a whiff of that aroma! It’s the Yenidje does it, that and the touch of black-walnut extract.” He smiles with a false modesty.

“THE NATION’S PLAYGROUND” is what the boys in Atlantic City’s Chamber of Commerce proclaimed their home territory at the turn of the century, and they weren’t exaggerating—by chamber-of-commerce standards, anyhow. Miles of fine, clean beach gleamed in the morning sun.

Two well-dressed, well-mannered men entered one of the best jewelry stores in Zurich, Switzerland. One appeared to be about forty. The other, greying around the temples, looked a little older, perhaps forty-five. The older one asked the clerk if they might speak to the manager.

WE had a dream: we kept on remembering that charming Macaulay quote from his History of England about some seventeenth-century inn; that one about... “Where the brick floor was swept clean, where the sheets smelt of lavender, and where the walls were stuck round with ballads, where a blazing fire, a cup of good ale, and a dish of trout fresh from the neighboring brook were to be procured at small charge.”

College etiquette: importing a week-end date

WHEN a man dates a fellow student at a coeducational college or university, a date is a date is a date: it’s governed by his age-and-income’s variation on date etiquette. But when he imports a girl as he does almost every time the week turns around at a men’s college, a date is a Week-End is a Thing: it’s worthy of the attention of a Clausewitz, or an Esky.

The layout at left squares away the basic matters of a guy’s campus or country wardrobe. A solidly tailored tweed jacket is a good angle to draw from, and everything here is engineered to go with the brown tones of the striped herringbone: slacks are twill whipcord, belt is pigskin, socks are cashmere and nylon and shoes are brown straight-tip grained leather.

“How would you like your daughter to marry a nigger?” the old man said. I started. The question, with its vulgar use of the offensive word nigger usually snarled out from behind curled, contemptuous lips, was one I had been used to hearing as the inevitable clincher whenever the “Negro question,” that swarthy skeleton in America’s family closet, arose to dampen an evening of previously pleasant conversation.

HONG KONG: If you’re a man who likes good living, fine dining and wining, beautiful women and fast bargains—the whole package wrapped up in some of the most exotic atmosphere on earth—then this place is definitely for you. It is one of the few spots left where the white man’s burden is the good deal it used to be in most colonial capitals back in the good old days when Somerset Maugham started writing about it.
