A.G.
THE watches on this issue’s front cover, all but one of which are seen pointing to a few minutes before midnight, form part of the Timex collection of antique watches belonging to the U.S. Time Corporation. That is, all but one of them do. When they were sent to Ben Somoroff’s studio to be photographed, one of the officials of U.S. Time expressed some nervousness over their safekeeping during the interval when they would necessarily be out of the Timex offices where they are normally housed.

F.A.B.
THE naming of dogs is one of the lesser-known sciences. Perhaps that is because most dogs are pets and the problem of the name is left up to the kids, who, after all, are going to be the ones to romp with him and pull his tail. Now, as every schoolboy doesn’t know, children are among the most conventional of individuals—impressionists though they may be with finger paint—and the poor beast winds up with some tag like Spot or Blackie or Rover or Rags.

Whenever anyone would ask me about my recent trip to wonderful Mexico, I’d just sigh, get that far-away look in my eyes and break out in a smile of reminiscence. The place, the people, the atmosphere and, above all, that music and dancing were just beyond description as far as I was concerned.

MARTIN MAYER
HERMANN SCHERCHEN'S name first appeared in this magazine some four years ago, after his astonishing recording of the Bach B-Minor Mass, and he seemed indeed a man worth meeting. Hearing him conduct in Rome, where he tried to sweat an Anton von Webern piece out of a Neapolitan chorus that was equally afraid of the German and the dodecaphonic language, we arranged an appointment at “meinem haus nach Lugano,” or, failing there, “meinem haus nach Gravesano.”

RICHARD JOSEPH
NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS: It's like Old Home Week every time we get here, even though we’ve never been lucky enough to live in this island paradise off the Florida coast. But every time we return we realize we’ve been away too long. Now if Eleuthera: Paradise Found on page 94 has turned your winter vacation thoughts Bahamas-ward, you’ll realize you can’t get to Eleuthera without going to Nassau first, and nobody who’s ever been to Nassau would want to.

EVEN now, our travel editor is pursuing his pleasant duties in the countryside of Europe, and forthcoming issues of this magazine will report his musings. Somewhat jealous of his peregrinations, however, we make bold to anticipate him with a collection of recipes fondly gathered from the country-side of France, in the Bordeaux region.

EVER since Bolingbroke flung his gage at Mowbray and challenged him “to take up mine honor’s pawn,” gloves have been as indispensable an accessory for the well-dressed man as for any competent surgeon or burglar. The formal mochas and cape-skins of the last century have been supplemented by a wide wardrobe of especially supple leathers — pigskin, antelope, chamois, suede, buck, etc.

SPACE has been explored, systematically and scientifically, for more than five centuries; time, for less than five generations. Modern geography began in the fourteen-hundreds with the voyages of Prince Henry the Navigator. Modern history and modern archaeology came in with Queen Victoria.

IN one of the plays scheduled for production this season the author writes this stage direction, among a lot of choice others, for his hypothetically sympathetic young-wife character: “Dedicated as always, she goes to the mantel, painstakingly rearranges the small Dresden ornaments on it, then moves about the living room distributing flowers in all the vases.

IT is some time since it has happened, and by now a suitable explanation will have been found, but I sincerely hope not. I refer to the epidemic in California a few months ago of plastic garden hoses that suddenly started to burrow into the ground and vanish, defying all attempts to pull them out by the tail.

THAT winter, in order to make a living, I finally had to resort to dog catching. Not on the payroll of the city, which then has the dogs exterminated, but on my own, in view of the tips I was given for each of the dogs stolen by me. I would go to one of the prosperous sections of town at the time of day when the maids take the dogs walking and, in my pocket, I would have a cord with a slide knot tied into it.

Esquire’s twenty-one-gun salute is aimed at all merry souls who are wont to toast the New Year and wash down their resolutions with a royal fling. For long draughts, couple one part brandy with four parts iced champagne in a goblet. For short takes, same ingredients plus dash of bitters, squirt lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon sugar, stir with ice, use champagne glass.

The phantom skier, opposite, wears an authentic Norwegian-design sweater; his processed-nylon cap has a squarish crown, quilted lining, ear flaps. The pull-over ski jacket, at top, is of blue processed nylon with slide-fastener closure and black trim.

KELLS ELVINS
FROM the Acropolis you look down on the mummy of Athens. The windows of the houses have a blank, unseeing, unliving look like that of the dead person sculpted on his tombstone. Like that person of the ancient stele, Athens shows no grief at its plight.

Transcending the time—money dilemma of the VIP, air engineers are perfecting a small jet, one that will move him so fast he can save more than his plane burns. Here is a deep-carpeted, supersonic vision for the tense tycoon to dream of—seven-foot leather sofa, Monel bar, pilot and radio phones, and a mounted panel to inform him of air speed, altitude, time and what’s on TV.

<p>THE grace of many years and the chime of much laughter have vanished since Constance Bennett was the suppressed desire of all the sad young men, but the Plaza is still as it was in the syncopated dusks when she used to tea-dance there to the scented rhythms of “Poor Butterfly” and “Japanese Sandman.” </p>

The Marked Cards Industry
100,000 crooked decks a year—for use in “friendly” games

HOWARD BOOTH
I HANDED an unopened pack of playing cards to two poker-playing cronies with the simple statement: “This is a marked deck. See if you can read them.” Like almost everyone else, they had heard of marked cards. The deck looked exactly like others they had bought innumerable times at the corner drugstore and, satisfied that outwardly the pack was no different from those others, they broke the government revenue stamp which sealed the pack and examined the glassine paper in which the cards were wrapped.

Lo, the duck hunter! Ready for anything—he usually gets it

HERMANN B. DEUTSCH
AS winter follows winter into the timeless past, duck hunting becomes more and ever more expensive and less and ever less rewarding; yet its popularity grows and grows and grows. This is no mere conjecture. As the pollsters say, it is statistically apodictic, gauged by the sale of federal duck stamps.

ELEUTHERA, BAHAMAS: It’s a lazy summer afternoon in the Bahamas. And right there is the major charm of this subtropical island, air-conditioned by the Atlantic trade winds, a couple of hundred miles east of Miami—it’s summer all year round, and all the afternoons are lazy.

ONE of the happier notes on the fashion scene these days is the emerging of outerwear as a distinct category rather than as just a mess of stuff you bundled up in when you went outdoors. Not too long ago, “outerwear” was made up of leather jackets, mackinaws, heavy sweaters and father's old overcoat.

CRAZY HYMIE stood on the extended ledge of the roof. He kept the umbrella he was holding behind his back. He tilted his head away from the warm breeze and rubbed the tickle out of his ear. He looked down and giggled because he was so high up. Bubbles of saliva gurgled from the sides of his mouth, drooling in a snaky line down his chin.
