ARNOLD GINGRICH
Don Erickson
This is Arnold Gingrich’s space and very much his subject—but not his voice this month. As the deadline for the issue approached, he was at home recuperating from a bout of ill health. He’ll be back, right here, before long. But I know what he wanted to call to your attention this month, so let me do it for him.

If Sally Quinn sees your article (Big Ben, April), she’ll surely give you the finger. On page 52 you print a photo of Ben in 1971. On facing page 53 there is a photo of Ben a mere four years later, in 1975. Gosh, golly, gee whiz, did living with Sally do that to him!?

CI.A. season is over in Washington and Watergate reruns have hit with enough sex appeal to make this year’s Presidential campaign seem as dull as it should. The situation is intolerable to civicminded observers, and any day now we can expect the press to begin lecturing on themes of responsibility.

G.N.
In 1960 Clay Felker, who was then an editor of Esquire and is now the editor of New York magazine, had what he thought was a pretty good idea for a magazine article. Why not, thought Felker, send a real literary writer to cover the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles?

HARRY CREWS
<p>Not very long ago I went with my twelve-year-old boy to a Disney movie, one of those things that show a farm family, poor but God knows honest, out there on the land building character through hunger and hard work. The hunger and hard work seemed to be a hell of a lot of fun. The deprivation was finally so rewarding you could hardly stand it. The farm was full of warm, fuzzy, furry, damp-nosed creatures: bawling calves and braying mules and dogs that were treated like people.</p>

The Perfect Hundred Meters
Current world record: 9.9 sec. Projected outer limit: 9.6 sec.

[no value]
Three factors determine speed in a sprint. The first is the condition of the track. If it's soft, or if it's slippery, horizontal force is absorbed or lost. If the track is hard and springy, none of the leg drive is dissipated. The second determinant is what Gideon Ariel calls "angular displacement of the leg joints."

The Perfect High Jump
Current world record: 7 ft. 6V½ in. Projected outer limit: 8 ft. 10 in.

[no value]
[no value]
Humans appear to have been designed for horizontal rather than vertical movement. But the essence of the high jump is the mustering of enough vertical force to counteract gravity. To boost the limited upward thrust achieved by simply pushing off the ground, high jumpers convert their horizontal velocity, created by running, into a vertical force.

The Perfect Long Jump
Current world record: 29 ft. 2½ in. Projected outer limit: 29 ft. 5 in.
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
The long or broad jump combines both the sprint and the high jump in a fusion of horizontal and vertical forces. The union of the two expressions of force optimizes at an angle somewhat less than thirty degrees from the horizontal. Theoretically the best ballistic angle would be forty-five degrees, but the angle must be cut down because an erect human starts his flight with his center of gravity already several feet off the ground.

While wandering among the athletes at a meet in Spain in 1973, Ariel paused to watch some East Germans put the shot. He noticed that contrary to accepted practice, the Germans heaved the sixteen-pound weight with the back leg off the ground and the front foot coming all the way to the bucket or toe guard that rims the launch circle.

The stag split leap is a compulsory exercise that is also used as an optional movement in balance-beam performance. Though it only vaguely resembles its opposite number in ballet, it still suggests dance, not traditional acrobatics. First seen extensively in the 1972 Olympics at Munich, the move known as an aerial walkover on the balance beam is classified as an optional exercise.

Imagine a wedding at which the guests are your friends. A joyous event. The bride does not burst into tears before or after the ceremony. Her mother does not produce, direct and star in the show. No one ties tin cans to the car, throws rice in your face or makes wedding-night jokes.

<p>There he is up on the stage under that outlandish foot-tall Montana Dick hat like Tom Mix wore (only his is black, where Mix paraded white to signify Good Guy purity), spangled in rhinestones from crown to spur, hulking and profane in your basic badass black, sometimes wearing a Lone Ranger mask and <i>always </i>careful to get it on record how he’s meaner than a junkyard dog. </p>

Latins began having a serious impact on the game only after the color line fell. Since 1949. they've come on with a rush. Below is a balanced unit, with speed and power in abundance and an enviable defense. But with players from no fewer than five countries, plus Puerto Rico, it would probably take a Latin John McGraw to keep order in the clubhouse.

It has been two months since the baby told anyone a new story, a period not sufficiently long to presage a trend. Talk of his retirement, of course, seems premature. He has taken to forming words on paper, a barely intelligible scrawl which he conceives to represent a variety of narratives.

A recipe for tearing hearts from chests with Gordo's Mad Dog Chili and another for putting backbone back into Western Civilization by spooning it proper coffee properly brewed, and I've come up with a stout rep as a food writer. Me, a fiction editor—and many other noble things I don't have room to list and should probably by now forget about along with everybody else who never noticed.

In the beginning, we were told only about the birds and the bees. Then Cole Porter discovered that even highly educated fleas do it. Well, we reasoned, if even highly educated fleas do it, then everyone must do it. Turns out there is more raw ldnky sex going on between members of more kingdoms, phyla, classes, orders, families, genera and species than you can shake a stick at.

Some things on the American landscape are so conspicuous that you hardly notice them. Gas stations, power lines, cloverleafs, franchised hamburger joints and, most of all, motels. You've no doubt driven past thousands of them and probably stayed in dozens, but the odds are you haven't spent five minutes really thinking about motels and their history.

The Sixties are long gone and with them went long hair, hair-downto-there hair. Also gone, in case you hadn't noticed, is the scruffy-chic look of the early Seventies. More and more, neatness counts, even if crew cuts aren't back. And speaking of back, when was the last time you checked the three-way mirror?

AUBERON WAUGH
The death of Dame Agatha Christie at the age of eighty-five may not have taken Britain completely by surprise. Nobody, for instance, has suggested that she was murdered. But this classic figure of the detective story, whose works have sold more than sixteen million copies and whose play, The Mousetrap, is still running in London’s West End after a world-record twenty-three years, leaves an unsolved mystery behind her that might have come straight from her own pages.

A favorite theme of the Japanese “rubber-monster” school of cinema is the creature from the prehistoric past, some giant lizard returned out of the sea to lay waste to Tokyo. Reality is more prosaic. Next to the Loch Ness monster, the earth’s most prominent throwbacks are a number of innocuous, if intriguing, fish.
