ESQUIRE’S favorite female, Dorothy Parker, practically broke up the ball game last fall, during the Symposium we put on, in conjunction with Columbia University, concerning the role of the writer in America. Miss Parker’s quiet outburst, coming virtually at the first moment she got a chance to say anything at all, was simply an observation of the obvious, that “The business of a writer is to write—and not to put on airs about being a writer.

Your editorial on Moral Responsibilities of the Press (July, 1959) is the timeliest, most powerful article I have seen, and in answer to the prayers of all decent-thinking people. If in the three years subscription to Esquire I had received nothing but this editorial, it would be well worth the price.

JAMES THURBER, the while that St. Jude, patron of impossible things, must surely have been interceding for him, set himself the task of making believable, in writing, the façade and the workings of the late Harold Wallace Ross, father and editor of The New Yorker.

LONDON: EMI, like RCA, is far more than just a record company, and the main plant at Hayes, Middlesex, stretches on for vast distances, building after building, power plant, waterworks, canal, smokestack, wire fences guarded by government agents to keep away agents of other governments.

JOSEPH WECHSBERG
WHEN I think of some of the great meals I’ve had on my lucky days my mind goes back automatically to the beginning of these meals. In a good restaurant the question, “What will you have to start with?”, is not a rhetorical one. The first dish is served when you are hungry and curious, in a pleasant mood of anticipation.

Jerome Beatty, Jr. says, with a degree of accusation, that of all the stories he has ever done, The Subourbonites was the most frustrating. For we were responsible for suggesting that, to get the whole story, he ride the bar cars. We generously allowed, of course, that we’d foot the bill.

EVER look out the window of a plane as it circles for landing near a big city and count the number of bright blue spots dotting the ground? They look like sapphires from above, and as you get closer you realize that the glitter is sun hitting water and that these are swimming pools—thousands of them in suburban back yards.

IT’S been a long time since a Formula 1 race was held in this country—in fact, the last one was back in 1937; it was the Vanderbilt Cup Race at Roosevelt Raceway on Long Island, when the Mercedes and the Auto-Union of Germany took the Americans, with Rosenmeyer winning on Auto-Union.

KINGSLEY AMIS
OUR cultural diagnosticians (or trend hounds) are so much in the ascendant these days that we are in some danger of preferring to write and talk about contemporary life rather than to live it. It seems wrong to encourage that sort of thing, let alone push it any further, but the said hounds probably are onto something when they detect certain cultural parallels between the Fifties and the Twenties.

BY a remarkable coincidence with the release of Samuel Goldwyn’s production of Porgy and Bess, there had appeared, at last count, thirty new records of the same name, by artists ranging from D’Artega to Miles Davis, from Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong to Percy Faith and so on; a little bit of P & B for every taste.

BURTON CRANE
ADVERTISEMENTS tell how $500 invested in stock warrants has turned into $100,000. Material sent to the very best sucker lists tells of the millions you’d have made by investing in stocks that no sane person wanted back in 1942. Lukens Steel jumped 306 per cent in 1956.

<p>THERE are a million definitions of public relations. From my own experience in the business, I have found it to be the craft of arranging the truth so that people will like you. Public-relations specialists make flower arrangements of the facts, placing them so that the wilted and less attractive petals are hidden by sturdy blooms.</p>

The Heart of Peru
A vast mosaic impervious to time and passing affairs
[no value]
[no value]
ROBERT W. MARKS
A FICIONADOS of potent spirits know Peru as the home of pisco, a grape brandy of exceptional force. Fanciers of sea food are familiar with the splendid corvina, which in Lima is served marinated in lime juice and Tabasco. And those who seek their fish in natural waters are aware that the record marlin, 1,560 pounds of fighting fish, was caught off Cabo Blanco; and that what is probably the finest rainbow-trout fishing in the world is in the rivers flowing into Lake Titicaca.

New York's New Napoleon of Haute Cuisine

GILBERT MILLSTEIN
The Café Chauveron is a small, superb restaurant in New York City’s East Fifties whose long, echoing roll of classic dishes is served in what are perhaps the finest sauces simmered in New York. It is a peculiarly just condition and could hardly be otherwise: Chauveron is founded richly and eloquently on the cooking of the Périgord, the province of the goose and the truffle (nowhere in France has food been prepared longer or with more crankily loving sedulity; it is the home of prehistoric man), and free of the clanking sanctimonies of gastronomy.

Richard Avedon
<p>Born 1885, an Idaho boy. Taught school: was tossed out for being “too much the Latin Quarter type.” Soon sought solace amid similar souls abroad. Aged twenty-three, while starving himself fat on a potato diet in Venice, he published <i>A Lume Spento</i>, a first book of poems which instigated a fierce friendship with Yeats, who wrote of him: “A rugged and headstrong nature and he is always hurting people’s feelings, but he has I think some genius and great goodwill.”</p>

AT first I had been thrilled and content to go with Pat about his farm and beat for him, my sharper eyes setting a rabbit or a pheasant and telling him in whispers where to aim. But Pat was old and heavy and soon got tired, for I led him on and on through marsh and thicket; coming home he would let me carry the empty gun, but that only fed my desire.

JOHN COHEN
AT one time or another in the past hundred years (to set an arbitrary date), fashion and art have collided in Rome, in Florence, and in Paris. In the last-named city, art has become so much an extension of the place that it has jumped about from Montmartre to Montparnasse to St.-Germain-des-Prés—the trick being that when fashion catches up with art, the advance guard snatches—up art and flees, leaving fashion and the remnants of a new academy of painting.

IT was a Sunday afternoon in the late fall. I had come home from college for the week end, and now, after a heavy dinner, I stood out on the lawn in the last of the good weather, raking the last of the leaves and burning them on the gravel drive. My father had gone up for a nap, my mother and her brother, Uncle Snevely, were still sitting with their second and subsequent cups of coffee.

Whatever You Do, Keep the Score
It's an indefinite game, but anyone can play it
[no value]
[no value]
PAUL DEMPSEY

Esquire's Side Trip No. 17
ITALY: Venice and the LaKe Country

RICHARD JOSEPH
SEPTEMBER and the early autumn is a vintage season for Venice. The Weather remains perfect, or improves—depending on how warm you prefer it—and the tides of the great summer tourist rush have subsided, leaving Venice to simmer down slowly to its normal and most attractive state.
