A.G.
At 564 pages, this issue is the biggest not only in our forty years of publishing but, so far as we have been able to determine, of any general magazine to date. (We say “general” because, quite possibly, there have been directory-type annual issues of various trade journals, loaded with ads looking like business cards and reading “Compliments of Joe Blow and Sons,” that have run up higher page counts than our present total not merely once but even often.)

Ah, so! Not only is Faubion Bowers uninformed of the current situation of t’ai chi ch’uan in the People’s Republic of China today (Ah, So! Karate or Monkey Wrench?, August), but by calling it “shadowboxing” and implying that it can be found “too feudalistic, too superstitious. . . ,” he also reveals his lack of knowledge as to what t’ai chi ch’uan is all about.

Forward!” is the word for this corner of Esquire’s fortieth anniversary issue; you’ll find no nostalgia here except as it proves useful in plotting the future —to find out where you’re going it often helps to look back on where you’ve been.

By now, I suppose, everyone has encountered Jesus Christ Superstar as a best-selling record album, a lavishly tasteless Broadway musical, or one of those sundry traveling companies that performed this self-styled “rock opera” in concert style.

MALCOM MEGGERIDGE
With the spectacle before our eyes—rather sad, as a matter of fact, if not tragic, to this particular observer—of America frenetically engaged in self-destruction, it seemed an appropriate moment to take a look at one of the more sedate of the Founding Fathers (John Adams—A Biography in His Own Words, edited by James Bishop Peabody; Harper & Row, $15).

<p>Eleven years ago, shortly after I came to New York, I met a young man named Victor Navasky. Victor was trying relentlessly at that point to start a small humor magazine called Monocle, and there were a lot of meetings. Some of them were business meetings, I suppose; I don’t remember them.</p>

Erik Sandberg-Diment
Stephen Hochschild built himself a house in Vermont using Irish half crowns. It all began in Ireland back in 1967 when he learned from a numismatic friend that the Republic of Ireland, which circulates both English and Irish coins, had never released more than 1000 of its own 1943 half crowns.

Back in the days when I used to be a working fiction editor and fiction used to be about an imagined something that happened to an imagined someone, I’d often read stories that seemed to me interesting, potentially successful, maybe even nearly (the ultimate) us-able—except that the point of view was somehow screwed up.

What a fellow like Esky needs at age forty is a pretty girl to admire, and music hereby offers the flutist Paula Robison, who ornaments the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Orpheus Trio (flute, harp and viola), and an increasing though still fairly small number of orchestras that have programmed a flute concerto and dared the wrath of their own first flute by employing a guest soloist.

An editorial in the first issue of this magazine stated, “Esquire aims to be, among other things, a fashion guide for men. . . . We feel that men have long since ceased to believe that there is anything effeminate or essentially un-businesslike about devoting a little care and thought and study to the selection of clothes.”

This magazine is forty years old this month. It would like to share its celebration. Born in elegance during the Depression, Esquire endured a world war and survived the fits and starts and night terrors of the nuclear age. Then through a decade of silence, the Fifties, and through a decade of noise, the Sixties, it managed always to make itself heard.

A decade has soft boundaries; but the kernel is hard, if you can find it. For me, it was a three-hour secret meeting—not that anyone cared enough to spy on or prevent it. The Sixties kept elaborate secrets no one wanted to hear. The press was ostentatiously banned from radical meetings, more out of psychic revenge for a lack of interest than to pique its interest.

Fitzgerald was the better known of the two but by October, 1933, when Esquire was founded, Hemingway had become the most prominent author of his time while Fitzgerald had started down the long reverse slope of his career, or so it then seemed.

Gay Talese
New York is a city of things unnoticed. It is a city with cats sleeping under parked cars, two stone armadillos crawling up St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and thousands of ants creeping on top of the Empire State Building. The ants probably were carried up there by wind or birds, but nobody is sure; nobody in New York knows any more about the ants than they do about the panhandler who takes taxis to the Bowery; or the dapper man who picks trash out of Sixth Avenue trash cans; or the medium in the West Seventies who claims, “I am clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsensuous.”

The other side of the avenue—for progress takes time—has not been rehabilitated yet and it looks exactly as it looked in the days when we sat with our noses pressed against the windowpane, longing to be allowed to go “across the street.”

Plus ça change is right up there among the iron laws of life.

Among the many medallions struck in honor of this century’s bloody conflicts, there is one, uncataloged, that has already worn almost indistinguishably smooth. After twenty-five years, the faceless alloy exposed beneath its vanished silvering proves too soft ever to have held any lasting stamp, but, more important, the idea behind it now seems almost too immense to begin with, as if it had forced too many symbols into the medal’s shallow, unfirm relief: an outline map of Spain, a fist clenched in salute to international solidarity, guns challenging both flanks, the round world, the five-pointed Red star within it, the dates 1936-1937, and the circlet motto, VOLUNTARIOS INTERNACIONALES DE LA LIBERTAD.

There is no way to correct a trick of propaganda that fits a monstrous figure in history, even though it is a cunning blow struck at one of mankind’s evil men. Nor is there any way to correct the belief that Hitler danced a protracted little jig when the French4 surrendered to him in that railway car at Compiègne.

In the spring of the year, 1954, there was the televised rumble over Private Schine, Major Peress, General Zwicker, Secretary Stevens, and others then of disputed rank and now of rapidly dimming luster. In the late summer, there were the untelevised censure hearings presided over by Senator Arthur V. Watkins, a Mormon elder from Orem, Utah, who could play variations on the crack of doom with a chairman’s gavel and who was so insistent on a pure, unclouded atmosphere that he posted No Smoking signs in the Senate Caucus Room—an act wholly without precedent.

Once more he thought how the decorator had managed to make it hideous without looking expensive.

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.

The three pieces presented here under the general rubric of High Old Times were, however, retrospective from their conception: Mencken regarding 1901 from the forty-two-year vantage point of 1943; Runyon dissecting his subject over the span of sixty years, back to his own childhood and indeed far earlier even than that; Ellison looking back from the Fifties over the jazz of the Forties.

<p>There were three authorities on the horses at The Kentucky Pool Room, Number One Opera Alley, in San Francisco: Mr. Levin, a fat gentleman of fifty, affectionately called The Barrel because he resembled one; San Jose Red, a nervous, thin person of sixty-five; and a neatly dressed young man of twenty who was known as Willie.</p>

The automobile swung clumsily around the curve in the red sandstone trail, now a mass of mud. The headlights suddenly picked out in the night—first on one side of the road, then on the other—two wooden huts with sheet-metal roofs. On the right near the second one, a tower made of coarse beams could be made out in the light fog.

<p>I had never seen Joseph Leborgne at work and I was shocked by his appearance. His blond hair, usually brushed smooth, was in disorder. His face was pale and drawn, and he looked so illnatured that my first thought was to apologize for interrupting him and leave.</p>

<p>Actually his name was Frederic Dobson. To his friend the conjurer, he talked about himself thus: “There was no one in Bristol who didn’t know Dobson the tailor for children’s clothes. I am his son—and am proud of it out of sheer stubbornness. You should know that he drank like an old whale.” </p>

Truman Capote
I am always drawn back to places where I have lived, the houses and their neighborhoods. For instance, there is a brownstone in the East Seventies where, during the early years of the war, I had my first New York apartment. It was one room crowded with attic furniture, a sofa and fat chairs upholstered in that itchy, particular red velvet that one associates with hot days on a train.

Thomas B. Morgan
In a typical ten-day period recently, Sammy Davis Jr. had this schedule: the final week of an eighteen-day engagement at the Copacabana (sixteen performances interspersed with general frolicking, a record date, television and radio interviews, and two visits with Cye Martin, his tailor); a one-night stand in Kansas City to receive an Americanism award from the American Legion; one night at home in Hollywood; and the opening night of a two-week date in Las Vegas at the Sands Hotel, the management of which has a contract with him for the next four years, eight weeks a year, at $25,000 per week.

Joseph Wechsberg
Two decades ago I caused a family scandal when my relatives found out that I had become a member of the claque at the Staatsoper in Vienna. Actually the claque was no sinister gang but a rather innocent body of thirty or forty cheerful opera enthusiasts who were given free standing-room admissions in the fourth gallery in return for what Joseph Schostal, the claque chief, termed “artistic applause.”

Orson Welles
It used to be easy to hate Hollywood. For me it was no trouble at all. But that was years ago. I don’t think either of us have mellowed very much since then; but we are getting on a bit and our feelings for each other are scarcely as passionate as they were.
