As an eleven-year survivor of a series of three operations occasioned by a malignancy, I was greatly interested in the article by Philip Nobile in our June issue giving a pretty exhaustive survey of the current state of cancer research and treatment.

I keep wanting to write something serious, or even something amusing, I scarcely care which. But there’s all those thousands of other writers out there, and they’re all writing away like mad while I’m just mostly reading. It’s thousands against one.

There is a Thin Man movie—no one here can remember the right title—in which Nick Charles (William Powell) comes down to breakfast one morning looking more than usually natty—quite a trick for William Powell—and Nora Charles (Myrna Loy) regards him and says: “You look just like a page out of Esquire.”

MALCOLM MUGGERIDGE
It might appear extraordinary, on the face of it, that anyone should be able to write another interesting book on the D. H. Lawrence story in view of the immense literature already produced on the subject. Next only to Shakespeare, it seems, Lawrence holds the record in the Eng. Lit. stakes.

Re your July issue: I live in one of the “hot centers” of fem. lib. activism; Cambridge, more specifically, Harvard Square. Gloria Steinem et al. and “the idea whose time has come” notwithstanding, I have the opportunity to observe the day-to-day social clankings of The Movement.

ROGER KAHN
On the seventh day of April, 1973, a date that may live in infamy, practice began for the Minors Division, Little League of Ridgefield, Connecticut. Ordinarily, I would take pause if asked which interested me least: physicians’ explanations of their fees, Men’s Roller Derby, or the sex life of Richard M. Nixon.

RICHARD JOSEPH
With the horn honkings of overheated cars caught in a midsummer Madison Avenue traffic jam blasting my ears as I try to write these lines, I can think of no more absolute escape than a visit to Ireland in late summer or early fall, when the weather is still sweet but most of the tourists have packed up and gone home.

NORA EPHRON
<p><span class="drop">E</span>very so often you turn a corner and Life, or the times, or the public-relations mechanism that makes the world go round throws out a hero you have to live with for a while. The point here is not about heroes but heroines. And long before the Bobby Riggs-Margaret Court tennis match took place near San Diego last May, it was clear to me that Margaret Court, the heroine who had been thrown not just my way but at the entire female population of the world, was going to leave something to be desired. The symbolism of the match was haywire enough to begin with&mdash;Riggs has always played a woman’s game, Court a man’s&mdash;and it was to get even more muddled before the actual confrontation. But beyond that, it seemed quite likely that of all the big women players now on the circuit, Margaret Court would be the one least likely to come through. I’m not just talking about winning the match&mdash;although God knows that would have helped. But there were the nerves. Margaret had nerves. Muscle spasms under pressure. She, of course, insisted they were simply magnesium deficiencies and potassium deficiencies; everyone else insisted they were nerves. <i>Just like a woman</i>. And then there was her style. I suppose it’s not really fair to bring up style, style has nothing to do with tennis, nothing to do with anything really, but it mattered to me. I mean, here is Bobby Riggs, the Lip, the hustler, saucy Bobby Riggs with his dyed red hair and his never-ending monologue and his relentless promotions (the copper-bracelet promotion, the Head tennis-clothes promotion, the 415-vitamin-pills-a-day promotion, the land development that sponsored the match promotion, the building project where Bobby lived promotion), here is Bobby Riggs, clown prince of the Old Boy tennis circuit, great copy, and he is standing on the court of the San Vicente Country Club in San Diego Country Estates posing for photographs with Margaret Court. It is Friday afternoon, two days before the Mother’s Day match, and he is whispering to Margaret, taunting her about the weight of the tennis balls and the question of her nerves and the despicable quality of women’s tennis and the pressure of having all the women counting on her on Sunday. And here is Margaret. Nervous. Smiling uneasily. Occasionally offering a demure reply to Bobby or the press. “I like a challenge,” she is saying. “I love the game. It’s been very good to me.” Like that. I didn’t want <i>that</i>. I wanted some lip. I wanted some aggression. I wanted some fight. I wanted satisfaction. And what I got, what all of us got instead, was a lady. </p> <p><span class="drop">I</span>t all began a little over two years ago, when former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs made a few derogatory comments about women’s tennis in <i>Sports Illustrated</i> and issued a challenge to Billie Jean King: “You insist that top women players provide a brand of tennis comparable to men’s. I challenge you to prove it. I contend that you not only cannot beat a top male player but that you can’t beat me, a tired old man.” As it happens, Billie Jean King did not say precisely that; what she did say was that women’s tennis was more entertaining than men’s, and that women deserved equal prize money. “Women play about twenty-five percent as good as men,” Riggs countered, “so they should get about twenty-five percent of the money men receive.” Nothing much came of Riggs’s initial challenge, but this year Tony Trabert, the pro at San Diego Country Estates, prodded Riggs to try again, and after Mrs. King turned him down, he sent telegrams challenging six other top women players and offering $5,000 of his own money and $5,000 put up by the land development corporation to the winner. Margaret Court was first to respond. “I’d still rather play Billie Jean,” Riggs said later, “because she’s really the ringleader of the liberation movement. She’s the revolutionary. Margaret Court is such a nice person&mdash;I don’t want to say by contrast.” Margaret Court, thirty years old, Australian, mother of a fourteen-month-old boy, is such a nice person by contrast that she doesn’t even think women deserve the same prize money as men. “I don’t feel there’s a depth in the women’s game,” she said. “There are so many good men. There are only six or eight good women. If you have a thirty-two-drawer tournament you’re going to give some youngster $1,000 to lose in the first round, and she doesn’t deserve it. I don’t think it’s good for the game. The money will come. The depth will come. At the moment, we’re rushing it a little.” </p> <p>Margaret Court trained for the match in Berkeley, working out quietly with her coach, a South African named Dennis Van der Meer. Occasionally reporters would come to the court for an interview and she would reluctantly grant one. Her answers were short and genteel; she was visibly uncomfortable with the press. “Margaret really doesn’t enjoy this,” her husband Barry would explain. Meanwhile, every day, Riggs played five sets, jogged two miles, swallowed 415 vitamin pills, and gave out interviews. Hundreds of interviews. Any reporter who called or showed up got more than he came for. “This is so much fun,” Riggs said during one interview, “that I wish it were postponed so we could go on like this another six weeks.” </p> <p>By the weekend of the match, Riggs had worked his remarks into a finely honed performance, with set lines that varied only slightly from press conference to press conference. “This,” he would announce, in a wonderfully unsyntactical sentence, “is the match of the century between the battle of the sexes.” When even that description seemed inadequate, he would shout: “This is the most important match ever played in tennis.” After the match, he concluded at the top of his lungs that he had just played the most significant sporting event of all time. He would stand, or sit, surrounded by sports reporters, and spin a simple question into a thirty-minute monologue, inserting rhetorical questions to stretch it out, waving his copper bracelet in the air for a plug or dropping in a remark about “beautiful San Diego Country Estates.” The delivery would begin slowly, usually with his old-person routine (“I’m a fifty-five-year-old man with one foot in the grave”), heavily studded with a series of impotence jokes (“The flesh won’t do what the mind tells it to” and “Why shouldn’t they let me into the women’s tournaments&mdash;everyone knows there’s no sex after fifty-five”). Then Riggs would build, gradually, ignore interrupting questions, pitch his high voice even higher, and suddenly he would be speaking so quickly that no one could quite get it down or get a word in. A typical Riggs monologue, this one recorded in the Los Angeles <i>Times</i>, went like this: </p> <p>“It’s pretty fantastic to think I am playing the match of the century and the battle of the sexes. This match is going to be more important than the Wimbledon, Forest Hills, or a $50,000 match between Laver and Rosewall. Why? Because Margaret Court is carrying the banner for women all over the world and I’m carrying the banner for all the old guys who have always felt superior to women, and they’ll want to see an old guy win because then they’ll feel superior, too, and I’ll be doing a very good thing for all the men all over the world and they won’t give in to the women’s lib quite so easily. She’s got twenty-five years on me. She’s bigger, stronger, more agile. She’s got better shots. Does everything better on a tennis court. She’s the best woman player in the world. What’s she going to do if she can’t even beat a fifty-five-year-old guy with one foot in the grave? What are people going to think of women’s tennis after that? She’s going to have a lot of pressure on her. I love tension. Not that there will be that much on me. I thrive&mdash;I have always played my best under tension. Whereas just the opposite is true with her. We’re going to be playing in front of the biggest audience ever to see a tennis match, right here at San Diego Country Estates.” </p> <blockquote>It was difficult to distinguish how much of Riggs’s remarks were put on, how much mere hysteria, and how much utterly sincere babble, but I finally concluded after hearing the routine some two dozen times that underneath all that surface male chauvinism was heartfelt male chauvinism, heightened, in this case, by Riggs’s bitterness toward open tennis.</blockquote> <p>It was difficult to distinguish how much of Riggs’s remarks were put on, how much mere hysteria, and how much utterly sincere babble, but I finally concluded after hearing the routine some two dozen times that underneath all that surface male chauvinism was heartfelt male chauvinism, heightened, in this case, by Riggs’s bitterness toward open tennis. </p> <p>All the older men tennis players are dismayed that open tennis, with its huge prize money, came too late for them to take advantage of it. That women are playing open tennis too and in some cities even beginning to outdraw the men’s tour, that a player like Margaret Court can earn $100,000 a year, is almost more than a man like Riggs can bear. Instead of playing in high-stakes tournaments, Riggs has been forced in the past twenty-five years to play the kind of tennis he really prefers, hustling opponents with poodles tied to his legs, umbrellas and suitcases in hand, top hat on his head. </p> <p>Stories of Riggs’s hustling have been legendary in the sports world, and the press managed to dredge most of them up again for this match. What few in the press realized, though, was that they were being conned at least as cleverly as Mrs. Court. Eighteen of the twenty-four reporters covering the match picked Margaret Court to win, most of them in straight sets. Explanations of sentimentality and sheer stupidity aside, the reason for all this faulty judgment had mainly to do with the amazing total performance Riggs put on the week before the match. Whenever the press watched him practice, he played well under his game. Whenever he was interviewed, he discoursed at length on his failing strength. He spent days fighting for a lightweight ball, lost in a flip he referred to as “the flip of the century,” and spent days sulking about how the weight of the balls would permanently cripple his game. After the match, of course, he confessed he had wanted the heavy-duty balls all along and had just made the fuss to throw off Mrs. Court. </p> <p>The scene over the weight of the balls was just one of several incidents that served to cloud the already murky male-female issues. Most men would have wanted to flip for heavy-duty balls, while women prefer lightweight ones; Riggs uses the lighter aluminum racket while Court plays with wood; Riggs’s game is all lobs and slices and spins and twists, while Court plays the serve-and-volley technique favored by strong male players. What happened as a result was that the press covering the match, all of whom were male except for me, became far more interested and threatened by the women’s liberation implications of the relationship between Margaret Court and her husband than by the totally confusing implications of the match itself. </p> <p>“Look at that,” one reporter said to me, pointing to Barry Court, who was carrying the Courts’ young son Danny. “He always carries the baby. Margaret never carries the baby.” In fact, Mrs. Court carried the baby as often as her husband did when she was off court; this was never registered by the press, who persisted in referring to Barry Court, a tall Australian who manages his wife’s career, as “the baby-sitter.” Sunday night, after Mrs. Court had been trounced by Riggs, I was walking back to my room and bumped into Brent Musberger of CBS. “Do you know who the real winner of today’s match was?” he asked. Yes, I thought, I know exactly who the real winner was. Bobby Riggs. That, however, was obviously not the answer Musberger was going for. “Who?” I asked. “Barry Court,” he replied. “What are you talking about?” I asked. “It’s simple,” he explained. “Now she’ll really need him. Now she’ll really have to depend on him.” The notion that Mrs. Court’s defeat by a male would somehow alter her relationship with her husband&mdash;who has been married to her for six years and presumably came to terms with the bargain at least that long ago&mdash;seemed a peculiarly male fantasy. On the other hand, it may be my peculiarly feminist fantasy to believe that Barry Court is happy in his life. </p> <p>And finally, there was the match. No point in dwelling too long on that. Riggs bounced down to the court in a sky-blue workout suit that looked like a pair of Doctor Dentons; he presented his opponent with a bouquet of twenty-four roses that were arranged exactly like a funeral spray. Margaret Court appeared in a specially designed yellow-and-green tennis dress with the word “Margaret” stitched into its high collar; it was exactly the sort of dress Queen Elizabeth would choose to play tennis in. The match began, and by the time the first three games were over, Riggs was in total control: his lovely lollipop game and his psych-out had Margaret blowing her first serves, failing to rush the net, missing shots she had no business missing. “She’s just not bright enough,” said the man next to me, who happened to be Pancho Segura. The match ended with Riggs winning 6-2, 6-1. “I played awful,” said Mrs. Court afterward. “He hit softer than many of the girls I’ve been playing. I couldn’t get my timing. It was one of the worst matches I’ve played in a long, long time.” In the end, Margaret provided a perfect illustration of Radcliffe president Matina Horner’s thesis on women fearing success. About the only thing she failed to do was cry. </p> <p>And we were left with Bobby Riggs. Margaret Court went off to her room&mdash;the baby was sick, her husband explained&mdash;and Riggs held the press conference alone. Two hours later, when I left San Diego Country Estates, he was still talking. He was planning to enter the Virginia Slims tournament and would even consider wearing a dress. He was knocking women’s tennis. He was contemplating a match against Billie Jean King. “Tell her she has to play for $50,000 a side,” he said. “And she’s got to put up the money. I’m not putting up any more free shots. I’ve done enough for those women.” </p> <p>He was describing the last-minute bets he had made and won. He was plugging his vitamin pills and waving his copper bracelet. He was pumping for senior tennis. “The girls say they should get as much money as men,” he was saying. “Well, if girls should get as much as men, us seniors should get as much as the girls. Look at this. One of the best woman players beaten by a fifty-five-year-old guy with one foot in the grave.” Every so often you turn a corner and Life, or the times, or the public-relations mechanism that makes the world go round throws out a hero you have to live with for a while. </p>

MARTIN MAYER
Nearly thirty years have passed since Virgil Thomson told readers of The New York Herald Tribune that &ldquo;Schumann&rsquo;s music ... is passing out of our focus.&rdquo; It was true, too: we had two-score years and more of a dry season on Schumann, and even today Schwann shows only three recordings of what is probably his masterwork, the song cycle Dichterliebe.

Let’s see a show of hands of all those present who believe the United Nations to be the shining hope for world peace. Pause to look for hands. In that case, let’s see hands of those who once thought so but don’t anymore. Well, then, is there anyone here who knows there is a United Nations?

Last spring the London Observer published for the first time extracts from diaries kept all his life by the novelist Evelyn Waugh. All of London was held fascinated for weeks by attempts to guess the identities of those politicians and artists whose scandalous doings were recorded in Waugh&rsquo;s pages (for legal reasons, many of the names were suppressed).

The game, the game: here we go again. All glory to it, all things I am and own are because of Roller Ball Murder. Our team stands in a row, twenty of us in salute as the corporation hymn is played by the band. We view the hardwood oval track which offers us the rewards of mayhem: fifty yards long, thirty yards across the ends, high-banked, and at the top of the walls the cannons which fire those frenzied twenty-pound balls&mdash;similar to bowling balls, made of ebonite&mdash;at velocities over 300 miles an hour.

Well, there is just no other place like it in the world. When the Cubans finally get the land back someday, land the U.S. Navy has used for seventy years, they will not inherit a military installation, although it is in part that, they will not find numerous secret espionage centers, although there is that also, nor will they be able instantly to convert the grounds into a port town, although the potential for that exists too; no, the Cubans will inherit a 28,000-acre amusement park.

The cigar you see overleaf is a Havana Montecristo. It is the finest cigar in all the world. In this particular part of the world, it is also, of course, the most illegal. We came by it honorably enough as a gift under Customs regulations which allow foreign citizens to bring into this country fifty Cuban cigars for their private use.

Another year has gone by in rock &#39;n&#39; roll America, and the hits just keep on comin&rsquo;. Columbia Records&rsquo; President Clive Davis was fired, and every other top executive in the business began looking over his shoulder. Nasty. Elektra released Nuggets, the first anthology album directed at Sixties nostalgia, and the old Cream cuts were repackaged and reissued a few more times.

In the last few years the American automobile buyer has discovered something that the Europeans have known for a very long time, namely that a small car does not have to be a cheap tin can. In fact it can have all the trappings of a luxury car, but without the bargelike proportions that Americans have assumed until recently to be a prerequisite for luxury.

In Southwestern terms, it is not a big enough piece of land to be called a ranch without pretension, nor is enough of its surface arable to qualify it as a serious farm. It is something less than four hundred acres of rough limestone hill country, partly covered with cedar and&nbsp;hardwood brush and partly open pasture, with some fair trees and a few small fields more or less amenable to cultivation.
