A.G.
For a long time now we’ve been in general agreement with an old publisher friend who holds that nothing is as good as it used to be, but at the moment of writing we are in the throes of recognizing an exception to this otherwise almost self-evident tenet.

France, of course, will never recover from the loss of General de Gaulle, just as it never really recovered from the death of Napoleon. Smart Parisian friends who would never speak of the old General, either in office or out of it, as anything except a grotesque, a buffoon, a relic from the past—suddenly, these people look rather sheepish and forlorn.

The eyes of Texas Re The Tin Star State (February): Gary Cartwright got a few surface facts straight—the University is in Austin, Frank Erwin has been chairman of the Board of Regents, there was a so-called riot in the Chuck Wagon. But the analysis is all cardboard and Styrofoam.

ROGER KAHN
Toward dawn, at the butt end of city winter, when snow lies clumped and grey, the future presents itself in fantasy. A small television set at the foot of the bed suddenly has grown until it covers a twenty-foot wall. To turn it on, I work a miniature cash register.

Love Story earned over $2,400,000 in its first three days. It broke the house records at 159 out of 165 theatres at which it opened, in about that many cities across the nation. Within two weeks (by this writing) it has made nearly $9,000,000, already a healthy profit.

BARTON MIDWOOD
Pretend for a moment that we are in the court of a king who rules in the style of Louis XIV. We are watching him eat his supper. We have been standing in silence, in reverent attentive silence, and watching every mouthful, every course—the subtlest change of expression on the royal mouth, the smallest gesture of the royal hand does not escape our notice —when suddenly the king pauses; he looks up at us sadly and says,“Let me confess something to you good people.

I was driving down Second Avenue in New York about five years ago, when I noticed that I needed gas. So I pulled into the Gulf station at Sixtythird Street, and an old man in greasy work clothes came out. He ambled over and when he got close enough I started to say, "Fill’er up," but the words didn’t come out.

The world’s largest open-air fruit market was once in Benton Harbor, Michigan. The world’s largest openair drugstore is in Harlem. Richard Woodley grew up in the former and has traveled widely in the latter to produce An Introduction to Flash (page 79), thus proving again that the only people who can really get to the heart of New York and its horrors are out-of-towners.

DAVID M. RORVIK
It has been said by someone (Aldous Huxley I suspect) that language is not only the vehicle by which we convey our madness but that it is also, in itself, a powerful source of madness. Reading an excerpt from “Report on Project 5-50638,” prepared for the U.S. Office of Education, I am ready to agree.

MALCOLM MUGGERIDGE
The Women’s Lib movement finds in Miss Germaine Greer (The Female Eunuch, McGraw-Hill, $6.95) one of its most audacious and vociferous champions. Indeed, her book reads like nothing so much as the wild cries of a woman at bay. One sees her (if she will pardon the liberty) naked and beating her breasts in fury over the monstrous regiments of men who exploit, degrade and corrupt her sex, making of women their servants and their playthings.

His name is Jimmy. He is thirty, built like a halfback, and has a trim moustache and moderate Afro. He reached under his soft-brown sweater-shirt which was worn outside his slim, brown custom-made trousers, and from a specially tailored pocket he pulled out a small .25-caliber Browning automatic and laid it gently on the table.

I lie here sick, upstairs, in the afternoons watching the shadows of tree limbs move silently across my yellow ceiling, while downstairs Wanda brings in young men. An hour before dinner I hear the front door open and close once, and if the particular afternoon’s automobile or motorcycle is sufficiently unmuffled I can trace its path out to the corner, until, at the turn, a stand of poplars intervenes and silences even the most ambitious exhaust.

In the past, most of the little things worked themselves out somehow, leaving free time and energy for the mind to devote itself to the big, ominous things.

The United States, long preeminent in the production of spectacular criminal trials, is today staging some which must be unique in legal history. A highly visible and audible section of the defense bar (with the unintended cooperation of a few judges) seems to have set out to demonstrate, by turning trials into combinations of political rally and five-ring circus, that the adversary system of criminal justice, in which defense counsel play so prominent a role, is simply unworkable and ought to be replaced by something else, whose nature they have but dimly adumbrated.

If shoes are constantly taking new turns, becoming, season after season, more imaginative and, on occasion, outrageous, it is not surprising. Over the years, no other article of apparel has exerted so special an appeal. Shoes have engaged the admiring attention of aphorists and men of letters alike, from Thomas Dekker and The Shoemaker’s Holiday to George Bernard Shaw, who observed in Pygmalion, "He's a gentleman: look at his boots."

In the final analysis the golfer plays against the man who designed the course. The game can be seen as a vast board game in which the board always changes. It does so from day to day according to the weather, and from course to course according to the personalities and tastes of the men who lay out the landscape.

Not the least important part of dressing well is that the preparation should never be apparent. But the garb of golfers has, until recently, been the most contrived, the least casual. The clothes shown on these six pages avoid that fault. They are ideal for the game, but, except for those at left, are not golf apparel exclusively.

Rather to the surprise of many musicians, the Beethoven year has been a pleasure. Nothing has emerged to change our view of the master, of course, but what little news there is has been good news: it seems less likely today than it did a few years ago that Beethoven had syphillis, and a bit more likely that some of his love affairs were consummated.

Swimming Last Summer

LINDA PASTAN
Swimming last summer in sun-kindled water, hand in hand, we had to surface-dive to find those cold currents that run like harp chords counterpoint to the lake's heat. Still touching, we swam between them, from cold to cold, like children in a field of scattered trees running from shade to shade for rest.

JOHN BERRYMAN
<p>The first signs of the death of the boom came in the summer, early, and everything went like snow in the sun. Out of their office windows. There was miasma, a weight beyond enduring, the city reeked of failure. The eerie, faraway scream of a Florida panther, gu-roomp of a bullfrog.</p>

WHO gets the first look at an exclusive excerpt from Philip Roth’s new novel is you, select reader. WHAT Richard Wagner did to bring about Adolf Hitler; the secret, maybe, is in Parsifal. WHEN Julian Bond fit the rebels to win his seat in the Georgia Legislature; a glorious legend forevermore.
