<p>THE photograph on the New York Times obituary page caught my eye at once, because the face was so beautiful and also, although I hadn't seen it for nearly thirty years, so instantly recognizable. I didn’t need to look at the caption to know that Alice Joyce, star of the silent films, was dead.</p>

WORD that George Jean Nathan has been ill has impelled us to want to devote this space to him this month, less as a formal tribute than as a sort of informal get-well note. Nathan is not as young as he has always seemed. It’s a good twoscore years since he and Mencken brought The Smart Set to its heyday, and made it, despite the handicap of its previous rather “fast” reputation, the most civilized magazine of its time.

ON page 51 of this issue is an outline long beloved of men —the derby hat. But, as the headline notes, this is a “derby with a difference.” It is a roughish, soft-felt job with all of the classic derby contour, but with the ease and casual air that men favor these days for country wear.

Reading the article by Robert Sampson on the male curse, shaving (Double, Stubble, Toil & Trouble, July, 1956) I can’t say that I can appreciate using the Mellon Institute’s dough to scientifically evaluate shaving or man’s gripe against same.

WE tried to get across to you some of the mood and feeling of Hawaii in Hawaii: Ahead of the Sun, on page 52, but if we failed, then the only thing left for you to do is to go to Hawaii and find things out for yourself. This is by no means a chore, however, and with Pan American, Northwest Orient, United, Japan, Canadian Pacific and Qantas Empire airlines and the American President and Matson steamship lines connecting the mainland with their island paradise you’ll find that you’ll enjoy the traveling almost as much as the getting there.

TAPE: The music still comes out the same place, but it doesn’t go round and round any more; instead, it goes on and on, past the “playback head” of a tape recorder. (See Tape Recorders, page 77.) Originally, of course, the point of the tape recorder was that you made your own recordings.

THIS is the year in four in which the first patriots of our country are dusted off at whistle stops and on television cameras in oratory that might be the better for the flame that sparked the words of colonial spellbinders. Those patriots arc deep-fired indeed, for rum held closely to the origins of America.

COMES the fall of the year and things start happening in Montreal and its vacation lands to the north. The residents of the second-largest French-speaking city in the world have returned from their vacations and are hungry for the distinguished food and the divertisements which have helped make their city the metropolis and the pleasure capital of Canada.

SAY anything you want about me,” said the author of West Coast Jazz (page 79 of this issue). “But don’t say I’m a music publisher.” This, coming from Arnold Shaw, a VP of one of the oldest music publishing firms in New York, a composer, ASCAP member and lyricist in his own right, author of two novels about the popular-music business, a Tin Pan Alley figure of prominence responsible for more than the usual share of song hits—this didn’t make sense, and we asked why not.

IF the cuff links above look mildly Aztec to you, you’re right: these come from Mexico, where jewelry making has flourished since the bow and arrow, becoming justly renowned for its mixture of fine workmanship and forthright design. The spirit of derring-do made famous by Mexico City’s matadors (and made the most of by its tourists) clearly extends to the arts, as well.

IT has been my custom, as is by now pretty well known, to leave an obviously hopeless play after the first act on the theory that if by then it has disclosed absolutely nothing in the way of merit there is no more likelihood of its improving than an already overtoasted and burnt piece of bread.

PERHAPS some of the many ills attendant upon life aboard this revolving lump of mud and rock as it spins its orbit stem from the fact that the price of admission to a lady’s heart and boudoir is so low. A man need only look her straight in the eye and bring himself to say, without blushing, “I love you,” and he is halfway home.

T. K. BROWN III
FRED MACCANN was a ruddy energetic man, thirty-one years old, with a vast appetite for fresh air and the pleasures of the flesh. He loved golf, hikes in the mountains, great meals of steak and potatoes, bawdy humor, poker; he loved the feel of his muscles working, of sweat on his chest, of the wind over his shoulders, of a woman’s body beside him in bed.

HERBERT BREAN
PATROLMAN EUGENE NOISETTE of New York City’s West 123rd Street station, patroling his beat along Eighth Avenue in Harlem one day in 1954, came upon a challenging sight. Outside Number 2294, a meat and poultry store, a woman was standing looking frightened, while blood spread over the bosom of her dress and dripped blackly to the sidewalk.

<p>SPORT’S GOLDEN AGE hit a jack pot of heroes. Boxing had its Dempsey, baseball its Ruth and Gehrig, golfing a Jones, and tennis a Tilden. With relatively no fanfare, fencing also got a Giorgio Santelli. Most of the former titans of the sports pages are gone or peacefully at pasture.</p>

IT had been a handy gadget during the war, enabling patrols and pilots and correspondents to record on the spot their impressions of what they saw. And the marching geniuses of electronics looked on it lovingly as the indispensable memory and control center of their calculating machines.

ARNOLD SHAW
IT was on a cool Sunday afternoon recently that we drove out of Los Angeles, heading south toward the Hermosa Beach Lighthouse—a shrine of West Coast jazz since 1950. As we traveled along the winding shore road, the Pacific Ocean was a choppy expanse of grey, its usually translucent blue waters merging imperceptibly with a murky grey sky.

College—the dwelling place of individuality—is also the home of one of the fiercest indications of the male herd instinct. One belongs—to a fraternity, an eating club, a class, a way of thinking, and... to an instinctive urge toward what is proper to wear.

NEXT to, “Did you remember to pay the telephone bill?” the most embarrassing question my wife can put to me is, “What does he look like?” (or “What does she look like?”) when she asks me to describe some person I’ve met. She always wants—desperately wants—to know.
