As announced elsewhere in this issue (see pages 188 and 189), nominations are again in order for the fourth annual “Business in the Arts” Awards. These are again, as they were last year, cosponsored by this magazine with the Business Committee for the Arts, that “quiet conspiracy” of a hundred corporate leaders across the country, to increase business participation in the arts on a massive scale.

Although I have read John Steinbeck’s entire literary output and most of that which has been written about him, it somehow never occurred to me that he was an idiot. Two things bother me about the article, however. First, I was disappointed that in the name of scholarship author Frazier did not break the promise he made to Steinbeck on his deathbed:

Just about a year ago, this column had the honor of introducing Esquire’s new co-Art Directors, Jean-Paul Goude and Jean Lagarrigue, and a new Associate Art Director, Robert “Cool Hand” Daniels. This month we are happy to announce Messieurs Goude and Lagarrigue’s change of status to Art Consultants.

H.T.P.H.
Both William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal have contributed to this magazine over the past eight years. Differences existing between the two were no concern of Esquire’s until Buckley proposed the article he subsequently published in our August issue, at which point Vidal was contacted and invited to respond, turning the argument into a family affair.

MARTIN MAYER
Verdi’s setting of Arrigo Boito’s libretto to Othello is the most continuously successful marriage of literary and musical sensibility in the history of opera. Bernard Shaw once pointed out that in this marriage Shakespeare was the more complaisant partner — that the three main characters of the play are “monsters” and the plot hinge of the handkerchief is a device similar to the stuff on which librettists traditionally feed.

<p>The table had been laid the night before. Now Chester has pushed his place aside; surrounded by scraps of paper and dictionaries, he toys with Sunday’s crossword puzzles. He wears pajamas and a dressing gown. A gross, ungainly man, with dull and knobby eyes, he has the look of one become too old to play the naughty cherub anymore.</p>

Sunday brunch has become so popular in restaurants all over the country that even Emily Post’s Etiquette, in espousing it in the 1969 edition (the 1950 edition called it “improper taste”), had no diminishing effect on the many thousands of people who make it a weekly event.

DENIS BROGAN
One of the main themes in the last volumes of Proust’s great novel is the impact on French society of the Dreyfus case. The question of the guilt or innocence of a minor Jewish staff officer tore political and social France in two. In fiction, it divided the Duc de Guermantes from his cousin the Prince de Guermantes.

JACOB BRACKMAN
It happens that Anthony Quinn invades my imagination oftener than almost any other star—not because I’ve so admired his performances, but because he has come to embody (for me and, I daresay, millions) a certain approach to life, idea about life.

MALCOLM MUGGERIDGE
Svetlana Alliluyeva’s second book since she turned her back on the U.S.S.R. and settled in America (Only One Year, Harper & Row, $7.95) is, in a vast and diverse literature, incomparably the best account so far available of Stalin, her father, and of the Soviet regime and how it works; not to mention of herself—a woman of uncommon interests and gifts.

Roy Andries de Groot
The author of The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo was the most romantic adventurer, the most undisciplined acolyte of Bohemianism, and the most controversial gourmet of his time. During the early and middle decades of the nineteenth century, Alexandre Dumas grew vastly rich by writing novels and spent nearly every franc organizing lavish pleasures — open house every day in his apartment in Paris or his Château de Monte-Cristo in the country, dinner parties for five hundred guests.

RICHARD JOSEPH
The dawn of each new decade of this century has carried its own generation of travel forecasters, and some of them have been spectacularly wrong. In 1910 the Scientific American said, “To affirm that the airplane is going to revolutionize the future is to be guilty of the wildest exaggeration.”

Martin P. Works
When the federal government drowned Marmes Man—or when they piddled on him, if you want to look at it that way—a lot of people were upset. The archaeologists who had found him were upset. One of the greatest archaeologic discoveries of the past two or three decades had been snatched from their grasp, and for no reason.

Charles Gordone
An impressive new playwright of the theatre is Charles Gordone, “part Indian, part French, part Irish, part nigger.” His new play, No Place To Be Somebody, adds immeasurably to the literature of self-identification for the American Negro, as does the following exchange between Gordone and himself, an informal rap on the possibilities of a race war.

<p>After nine years of getting hoarser and hoarser in the wilderness, we were just about to call this whole thing off when we discovered that one, just one of you, is beginning to get his priorities in order. A highly credible source reports that Neil Armstrong (the first man on the moon, remember?) read our July, 1969, article on the immortal words of great discoverers and, according to an associate, “must have worried about it all the way to the moon,” where he took the trouble to construct a few suitable opening remarks.</p>

The really remarkable thing about resort wear this holiday season will be its range and diversity. In no season within memory have stylings touched so many different bases. And this is all to the good, for no other kind of clothing should offer so many options, so much opportunity for personal preferences.

There is really no great sense to encasing the torso in a tank suit. For one thing, it shields from the sun (which is not precisely the purpose of going to the beach), and, for another, it constricts the swimmer. But herein is posed a question, to wit, “Since when has fashion felt obligated to be functional?” So, in 1970, there will be, in bathing wear, a certain concern with the look.

The only thing that the clothes on these eight pages have in common is their coolness. The styles vary greatly, but the coolness is consistent. This is the miracle of materials—the feasibility of adapting the Norfolk jacket to the stifling days of the resort season, the easy access of what up until now have been winter stylings into the world of hot-weather wear.

This is the memoir of an addict. While bad stuff is flying in Vietnam, Chicago, our universities—and where not?—it matters to me whether a team of strangers wins or loses a game. Which is madness. I like to think of myself, in the privacy of self-concern, as a serious man.
