IN the days when Mencken and Dreiser were both still around, we sat between them one night at Dreiser’s apartment in the Ansonia on upper Broadway, feeling like a sorry buffer state between two great and contentious powers. Mencken and Dreiser had been “not speaking” for some years, but things that each of them had said to us about the other had emboldened us to arrange this get-together, which was supposed to culminate in our all going out to dinner.

After the Laurel Players by Richard Yates (February issue) is almost tendentious. Filled with back-stage nuda veritas, it lifts the curtain on the sad drama of quasi-misogamy. Said without literary extravasation: It is sociologically significant in that it enacts the marital muggle as it really is; as against the pink-cloud version hinted at in popular songs and lied about in some stories.

HAROLD HAYES
OF the five senses, sound comes next after sight—the man who can hear being far out front of the man who only can touch, taste and smell. How well our man hears is a technical consideration; it’s what he hears that is important. (In this respect, and for purposes of coping with the twentieth century, the man with a hearing aid, only slightly deaf, has even the greater advantage.

DWIGHT MACDONALD
SINCE the coming of sound, the movies have been faced with the same problem the theatre has been struggling with for a much longer time; namely, their style has become boring. The early periods are curiously alike: the plays of MarloweJonson-Shakespeare (or of Corneille-Molière-Racine) were as stylized as the films of Griffith-Chaplin-Eisenstein, the formal beauty of verse corresponding to that of montage and pantomime.

MARTIN MAYER
LE NOZZE DI FIGARO is the earliest of the trilogy of Italian operas by Mozart and Da Ponte, a body of work which is still, after some 175 years, the locus classicus of what can be accomplished in the greatest of all theatrical art forms. “Our purpose,” De Ponte wrote in his preface to the libretto, “was to offer a new type of spectacle”— and the purpose was achieved.

DOROTHY PARKER
I think that when the weight of years seemed to lie heaviest upon me was when I lately read The Memoirs of Casanova. I know that when I was very young and I sat with my dirty little playmates, we would read such matters giggling, with our hands over our mouths to stop the giggling and sometimes the squeals of “Ooooo, my!” Ah, youth, youth! What would I not give to return to those laughing days?

C.H.M.
ONE of the great pleasures of traveling in a foreign country is the joy of discovery, the delight of finding things to do that you, yourself, like. The pleasure, of course, isn’t always mutually participatory, even among members of the same family: the man who finds it impossible to look at famous landscapes in a museum for more than half an hour at a time will spend hours viewing the wonders of nature from a chalk stream.

FAST-GROWING in popularity among tourists these days is something known in the travel trade as plant visits. Now, a plant visit can mean anything from a three-hour hike along the assembly lines of the Ford Motor Co. to a squint at a craftsman carving beads out of old cherry pits.

THE term “new wave” is the current title any decaying art form gratefully awards to its younger practitioners in the hope of a Cultural Renaissance at best, or, at least, Thank God, Better Box Office. From movie makers to Swiss bell ringers, New Wavers abound.

IN Canada, Early and Late, which you’ll find elsewhere in this issue, we ran out of space just as we were ecstasizing about the glories of the eastern brook trout. We’re not a man who takes interruption gracefully, even by the end of a page, so here now is the additional data on the eastern brook trout that we’re damned if we’re going to be kept from giving you.

JULIAN BOONE
<p>ALMOST anyone can give you a sound reason for the boom in FM radio: there's as much, or more, good listening available on FM as there is on AM, and FM nearly always comes in sounding better and with less static. Reasons for the cleaner reception are complex but a summary will reduce them to layman’s language.</p>

DAVID SCHOENBRUN
THE majesty, daring, courage, vision and arrogance of Charles de Gaulle are unmatched in the history of France, a country whose history abounds with examples of majestic arrogance rarely matched in other lands. A French king achieved immortality in history books by proudly proclaiming: L’état, c’est moi—an arrogant proclamation hard to match.

EIGHTH AVENUE is a sad, sick street whose neon lights dangle over the dandruff of bartenders and focus on smoking prostitutes, sailors’ hats and beer bottles that occasionally smash against juke boxes and attract cops who say, “All right, all right, break it up!” It is a street of hock shops and flophouses and underpaid panhandlers with bloodshot eyes.

Once upon a time, in France, of course, a young actress was asked to adopt the name of the part she was to play of a girl from a book to be turned into a film which in the end was never made. The book was Victory, by Joseph Conrad. The actress, who has kept the name of the role she didn’t play, is Marie Laforêt; she has since made two other films and is considered a comer.

SOME time ago the wife of a suburban New York dentist caught up in the sort of artless seizure that seems to transfix admirers of Theodore Bikel wrote him a long, fluttery letter. After dilating confidently on his undeniable talents as an actor and folk singer and his putative virtues as a deep thinker and all-round human being, the lady developed a knock in her engine.

LET there be no mistake: this was a criminal prosecution. It was entirely unlike the action on the same book between Grove Press Inc. and the Postmaster General that was heard before a judge in the United States District Court in 1959. Publication of an obscene article is a criminal offense in Britain, and before the new Act of Parliament was passed in July, 1959, there was no defense against it —other than a factual denial of having published; the author had no right to be heard in defense of his own book, nor had publishers, booksellers, critics or members of the general or specialized public.
