A.G.
IN New Orleans where, with the possible exception of San Francisco, people are more knowledgeable in the arts of living than anywhere else in America, they say of coffee that it should be all three of these several things: black as midnight, hot as hell, and sweet as a woman.

As we go to press, Sugar Ray has done the incredible and annihilated Bobo. Not too long ago we saw Sugar fight Randy Turpin, and while he did a fair job on that rugged gent, it looked as though Sugar had thrown his last big knockout punch. We certainly are happy to note that we were wrong.

Musicology game I was surprised and delighted by Aldous Huxley’s stimulating treatment of the mates and madrigals of Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa —but then the scope of Mr. Huxley’s knowledge has always amazed me. Variations on a Musical Theme (January, 1956) was both lucid and scholarly, which is nigh onto impossible in the musicology game.

BET you don't know who redesigned the Brooks' pink shirt for women. None other than our favorite critic of café society and the intellijazzia, George Frazier, the man whose virtuosity with the familiar essay moved Variety to review his record-jacket prose rather than Miss Lee Wiley’s songs inside, and that’s going some.

RICHARD JOSEPH
WINDING up Bordeaux: Pastoral Pleasures, which you'll find on page 94, we routed you back on the road to Paris in case your vacation time should run out and you have to head for home. But if you’re fortunate enough to have more time available for your trip through France, you’re right on the edge of some more fascinating countryside.

IF you’ve ever watched a man attempt to get into a Porsche while wearing an opera hat, it will be obvious to you why these low-crowned evening models are being worn on the Continent with great dash, and a good deal of gratitude besides. Small, low-slung cars are responsible for any number of modifications in a man’s sports wardrobe— breeks, short topcoats, kangaroo pockets—and, for racing about the country-side in a convertible, there is a new concealed-visor type of beret that won’t blow off.

CURT RIESS
Two years away from New York had made a difference. To me and to New York. I don’t know whether New York recognized me when I came back. I certainly did not recognize New York—if that matters. For one thing: New York had grown and I hadn’t. To be specific, the house in which I had lived had shot up like a weed.

I'VE been with Wharfedale since 1932. Oh, no, there wasn't any Wharfedale before that; I founded it, you see. No, I’d never done any engineering until then, I’d been a textile merchant —a rag merchant, as we used to call ourselves—but sound was my hobby.

CAN a man be honest, upright and true and still have nine Valentines? We hope so, because that’s our predicament. But before branding us fickle or potentially polygamous, please hear us out. RCA Victor—the rapid-firing cupid of this whole affair—has just released the first albums in their Meet The Girls series.

THE island of Martha's Vineyard—still the haunt of storied whalers and Indians—is a haven of some 6000 people in the winter, when it rests quietly from the summer invasion of 40,000 off-islanders. It is famous for its newspaper —the Vineyard Gazette, which considers the chirp of a spring birdling quite as important as the yawp of a Khrushchev—for its utterly charming six towns, and for its hospitality.

WHILE Italian Dolomite crews were testing jumping grounds and bobsled runs, checking out the half-dozen chair lifts, smoothing down the five big skating rinks and tuning up three new cable cars, London haberdashers were equally busy, in their own way, getting ready for the Winter Olympics in Cortina d’Ampezzo.

ALDOUS HUXLEY
BETWEEN 1800 and 1900 the doctrine of Pie in the Sky gave place, in a majority of Western minds, to the doctrine of Pie on the Earth. The motivating and compensatory Future came to be regarded, not as a state of disembodied happiness, to be enjoyed by me and my friends after death, but as a condition of terrestrial well-being for my children or (if that seemed a bit too optimistic) my grandchildren, or maybe my great-grandchildren.

GEORGE JEAN NATHAN
IT is a rare playwright who at one or another time in his career isn't tempted to write a play about Christ, Napoleon or Joan of Arc, or possibly Judas or Don Juan. The latest to succumb to the Joan temptation is Jean Anouilh. His succumbing is called The Lark, which has been translated beautifully from the French for English audiences by Christopher Fry and less beautifully but acceptably enough by Lillian Heilman for American.

PAUL GALLICO
MAY we chat a little about space affairs? You know where I stand about going there, of course ... to the moon and places, I mean. I'm not. Not even if I’m asked. I’ve written about that. But now this satellite the size of a football or a basketball—I didn’t quite get the hang of which ball—is to be launched into space filled with machinery to send back tattletales on how things are in the cosmos.

<p>The girl wore a zebra-striped silk Bikini bathing suit and her hair, lips, fingernails and toenails were an identical shade of brilliant light orange. On any beach she would have stopped traffic, but here, in the crowded hotel casino, no one gave a second glance to the flaming hair, the elegantly chiseled navel, the tender, nacreous thighs. </p>

IT was about noon when I came out of the theatre and heard her say, &quot;Joe.&quot; She said it quietly, not the way she would have said it in the past, in a semi-scream. I turned and said, &ldquo;Well, Erie. Hello, hello.&rdquo; She looked bad. Very tired and very subdued.

THERE is international agreement this spring on the cut of the well-dressed man.

<p>ALTHOUGH his cauliflower face and buttonhole slits of eyes give him somewhat the look of a retired prize fighter who did not always remember to duck, John Perona, a former bus boy who owns and operates the New York night club called El Morocco, would doubtless be aghast at the thought that there is any resemblance whatsoever between his plush little play pen and the cavernous, arnica-steeped auditorium known as Madison Square Garden.</p>

But his wife had made him run several errands which she could have just as well done herself, since, while he was out, she had been telephoning friends and gossiping.

DURING the Winter of 1950 a commercial boat fought a lonely fight for life in the rough waters below the Montauk lighthouse. A freezing gale blew from the northwest and the decks of the dragger were awash as she labored in heavy seas. On board, the crew of the Robert E. manned all available pumps in an effort to keep their craft afloat.

IN this country where almost half the male population wears glasses, fashion has finally come to roost on the bridge of your nose. To wear one pair for all occasions is not only false economy (when they break you exit from the reading public until your optician or optometrist saves you), but it is also inappropriate today to make one pair stretch among evening, business, sports and casual occasions.
