WE have heard of husbands who have given their wives such gifts as garbage pails, breadboards and washtubs, on such tender occasions as wedding anniversaries, birthdays and, even, Christmas. But we have always assumed that such marriages either ended soon after such gift presentations or, otherwise, were preserved only because those husbands also gave their wives something else, infinitely more precious and welcome, to make up for their misplaced practicality at moments calling for some sense or semblance of romance.

F.A.B.
WE were recently considering the status of Father—glorified in this issue—and it must be admitted that our thoughts took a turn to the gloomy side. A friend of ours remarked on how every married man he knew was completely bossed by his wife, and he wondered aloud at what Man had done to place himself in this unwilling servitude.

Crusade, Mr. Gallico? (This Man’s World, May, 1955.) Confusion rather! Imagine a hundred or so letters, without any name and address on them, signed by a busy executive and passed on to be put up for the post! Think of the Sound and the Fury among the staff trying quickly to match nameless letters with their proper envelopes, and of the clairvoyance necessary to file the copies afterwards.

IF we ended your New York State tour more or less suddenly and unceremoniously in New York City and Long Island in NY on page 84, it was because we felt we didn’t have enough elbow room left to do any more than mention that New York City and Long Island were there for your enchantment.

THEY say that old champs never come back, and the statistics on both boxing and commerce seem to prove it; but the record business is peculiar. Vide RCA Victor, which was hanging on the competitive ropes only three years ago, and has happily spent the last few months grinding its foot in the opposition’s faces, just as it did in the old, old days.

THERE are many fine restaurants in New York and not too many people would believe the literal diversity open to a man with food on his mind unless they actually hiked around town with him, and peered over a shoulder at both menu and check. It is not difficult at all, for example, for a guy to take his old college chum or most promising client to lunch, and with only a drink or so before the entree, and a touch of extra dressing on the salad, to relieve himself of about thirty bucks for the food and another five for the captain who so graciously permitted him to chew his chow on those sacred premises.

Gone are the days when a gentleman risked being mistaken for a beachcomber whenever he relaxed in something comfortable and cool. Witness the quality and craftsmanship inherent in every detail of the resort wear, on these pages. Featherweight coats come into their own at last, with color, linings and faultless fit; and the cool comfort of shorts is yours, in a variety of lengths, for wear just about anywhere in the world

THE HUB, where Damn Yankees played its sellout, pre-Broadway exhibition games, raised quite a hubbub about the musical’s title. Boston disc jockeys referred to it, with characteristic verbal reticence, as “Darn Yankees” or “Infernal Yankees.”

<p>HOBBIE DONOVAN put his rear end against the door and backed himself out of the French restaurant. On the sidewalk, he spun around, bumped into a young couple, touched his black porkpie and excused himself with a big grin. He skirted around the boy and girl—rather than go into a sidewalk waltz, side to side, to see who was going to go which way.</p>

<p>AMONG the things that none of us red-blooded, frustrated hostiles can ever forgive Hollywood, TV or magazine-fiction writers for is their fostering the illusion, when they touch on the hallowed subject of big poker, that the poker shark has a lean face, a lantern jaw and a sinister mustache that whips across his face like the wound made by a sting ray.</p>

HOUSTOIN is the city where they make it, and where they spend it. It has been called the Land of the Big Rich, and there is no bigger or richer city in Texas. It has also been called the greatest of the frontier trading posts, a foggy, oil-perfumed bog, and a wistful sky line on a flat, depressing prairie.

<p>SPEAKING as the father, the admittedly irascible father, of several small fiends, I am getting awfully tired of hearing the parents of America blamed exclusively for the rising tide of juvenile delinquency. This has become the favorite indoor sport of a horde of self-appointed experts who love to level an accusing finger at the quaking members of my generation and proclaim that our indifference to our children’s welfare —not to mention our moral degeneracy—is at the root of the problem.</p>

THE SWING
Another willful way to separate heaven and earth
[no value]
[no value]
ROBERT LEWIS
THAT morning it was different. He sensed it the moment the woman in white unlocked his door and he, stepping forward eagerly to meet her, noticed her eyes and the secret look they had, as if she were part of a conspiracy. Before he had time to check himself he uttered the phrase he had ready, “I don’t really think it’s going to rain” (adding the word “really” to show that he was not quite a fool, that he had noticed the clouds, but that it was his considered opinion that the sun would break through at any moment); then he stopped short, his arms dangling, his mouth open in dismay at the thought that they might make him use the swing in the basement after all, and looked at the woman to divine her secret thoughts.

After some cold calculating, these three have achieved new dimensions in cool summer comfort, somehow escaping the calendar and making their fourth-dimensional exit from the hot city as well. To discover the miracle that seemingly transports this trio through time and space, look to the fiber, fabric and tailoring of their apparel: Opposite, lab-grown Dacron blends with cotton; the ice-blue color looks as cool as the suit feels and goes well with natural straw hat, co-ordinates with sheer shirt.

THE little portable sewing machine hummed industriously. Florence was whipping up a black slip, black panties and a flouncy black dress that she was to wear at her husband’s burial. Florence said to her mother for the thousandth time, “Boy, will I ever look swell for the funeral.”

<p>A house is a structure surrounded by neighbors' children and a mortgage. It usually has a roof for squirrels to roll nuts on very early in the morning. It has spacious windows to permit unwelcome guests to see that the host is at home, cowering behind a chair.</p>

HERMANN B. DEUTSCH
THE world’s best eating fish, bar none, is the catfish in general and the yellow catfish taken from Louisiana’s Pass Manchac in particular. Whatever hostilities this exaltation of a plebeian above such patrician numbers as salmon trout may engender, the statement stands, with a brief assist from another plebeian named Napoleon Bonaparte.

IT does not seem possible, when first you see it, that the world’s wonders could be crowded within its borders: evergreen mountains like the Vosges in Alsace and like Germany’s Black Forest, across the Rhine; rich farmlands reminiscent of the west of England (but the wine which comes from the southern slopes of these fields tastes as if it is grown somewhere in Burgundy, or on an Italian hillside); clear, mountain-bordered lakes that make you think of Lucerne, or Geneva, or Como; wide beaches that recall the Caribbean.
