Nora Ephron
It is one of the great surprises of my adult life that I am not particularly good at doing the Double-Crostic. When I was growing up, I thought that being able to do the Double-Crostic was an adult attribute, not unlike buying hard-cover books, and that eventually I would grow into it.

My money with the Rupert story (For Rupert—With No Promises, February) goes on Philip Roth. I will not bore you with the overwhelming arguments for the idea that it was not written by Salinger, but consider this: Roth’s My Life as a Man structurally and thematically deals with just the issues of fiction vs. reality and the nature of art that Rupert addresses.

Somewhere in Britain, James Bond will sip a perfect martini—stirred, not shaken—and remember adventures past. On the Continent, Hercule Poirot will agitate his little grey cells and hoist a goblet of claret in tribute. And all around the world, would-be spinners of spy stories and tales of fogbound Balkan corners will begin searching for a new setting for their narratives.

Sometime in the primitive stages of the last Presidential campaign, my father was pondering the slim chances of his fellow Georgian. “It will snow in Miami before Jimmy Carter gets to be President,” he said, and I thought that pretty well finished Carter off.

You hear it all the time these days. You&rsquo;re at a party and somebody mentions that old so-and-so is his dear best friend. How recently, you ask, did the speaker and old so-and-so break bread together? Not that long ago, the answer comes. Maybe six, seven months back.

There do indeed exist two cultures in our society, but they do not face each other, as C.P. Snow argued, across a demarcation line called the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The issue is not, I think, whether a person&rsquo;s knowledge pertains to the sciences or to the humanities, but whether a person has language or not.

If you get caught, pummeled by security police and hauled before Commissioner Kuhn like a common Finley, don&rsquo;t say I told you this was legal. All I&rsquo;m saying is that if you&rsquo;re very discreet and act like you know what you&rsquo;re doing, you can probably get away with it.

THOMAS RABBITT
At night the sand wears a corsage of flesh. She can smell it. The boy is hard, strange, a summer storm moving in to plague her with the things he&rsquo;s done. Over the heights the wind brings fog. Wind and fog derange her new life. Under them, the phosphors flash and she cries because the season&rsquo;s almost over.

<p>It was some years ago, in 1934 in fact, that I sat, on a sunny early-summer morning, in the Greek Theatre in Berkeley and proudly watched myself receive a Ph.D. By avoiding the liturgy, I saved the cost of a cap and gown. Ever since, I’ve called myself an economist and have enjoyed all the pecuniary emoluments and a decent share of the public acclaim that accrues properly to members of the profession.</p>

&ldquo;Hey, Luther&rsquo;n minister&rsquo;s daughter!&rdquo; Barle turned from the stove as if the stove had burned her. &ldquo;Did you speak to me, Tom?&rdquo; She raised a hand to her cheek. &ldquo;Who else around here is a Luther&rsquo;n minister&rsquo;s daughter?&rdquo; &ldquo;Why, nobody but me.&rdquo; With the hand not covering her cheek, she was making a number of jerky, startled, purposeless motions, for this was the first time her husband, Tom McCorkle, of Triumph, Tennessee, had addressed her for a good while, possibly several weeks.

It&rsquo;s certainly possible to keep close friends after a big success as long as they are not writers. If one person is more successful, particularly more successful financially, than the other and they&rsquo;re both writers, then all hell breaks loose.

<p>Pleasure before business. Or: After giving joy, give a job. Having offered your friend an assignment, reduce him or her to shame if you happen to notice the beginnings of anguish. Let no friend, however otherwise obligated or burdened, refuse to work for you; insinuate that any refusal will be received as a personal betrayal.</p>

Dave Marsh
Because the bulk of my work as a music critic involves listening to records (often, rest assured, more profitably than pleasurably), I can&rsquo;t be overly conscientious in keeping my twelve-hundred-disc collection spick-and-span. Hi-fi buffs recommend that records be cleaned before and after each listening.

More fire fighters are injured in the line of duty than miners, construction workers, police officers. Even with modern technology, the only way to fight a fire is the oldest way: get as close as possible and put water on it. It&rsquo;s simple enough.

The Cardinal is a gathering place for the farmers and cement-plant workers of Jasper County and is owned and run by Jim &ldquo;J.B.&rdquo; Billingsley, a man of infinite wisdom with a keen nose for commerce&mdash;and for phonies.

Television superheroines are boring. The Bionic Woman&rsquo;s whole is clearly unequal to some of her parts. And what can one say of Charlie&rsquo;s Angels other than that they are Farrah Fawcett? As for Wonder Woman, who needs the grief? Underneath her eagle halter and star-spangled pantie girdle we perceive a body stocking of anachronistic feminist ideology: Wonder Woman is a political tract with blue hair.

Not just any tennis ball, but one hit to me by this squat man with a tanned face the color of teak and a nose like an arrowhead. His name was Pancho Segura and he is indisputably the most famous tennis teacher in the world at present.

If the burden of finding a place to play and a compatible tennis partner to play with makes tennis more pain than joy, you will be delighted to learn that a technological breakthrough now makes it possible to play all by yourself&mdash;almost. With the proper amount of cash and a modicum of mechanical ability, you can get an hour&rsquo;s worth of tennis exercise in ten or fifteen minutes with a minimum of grief.

Gita was not a fashionable German. She had been too young during the war years for the Hitler Youth and had spent her childhood happily eating cabbage soup, unaware of the holocaust. Her father had not been in a camp, nor in the Resistance. He had not been dragged away from his home in the middle of the night.

To Hell with Golf!

Charles Price
I have been playing golf now for forty years, in everything from national championships to Sunday-afternoon drunksomes. I have been writing about the game for three fourths of that time. Eight books about the game I have poured my soul into and at least three dozen magazines, ranging from The Saturday Evening Post to the Saturday Review, from Playboy to Cosmopolitan.

There&rsquo;s a rumor abroad in the land, spawned mostly by envious non-fishermen, I suspect, that by the time each new fishing season rolls around in the spring, most of us winter-pent fishermen have gone definitely nuts. A companion rumor is that we fishermen are quite sufficiently nutty to begin with, thank you, and that the approaching season merely pushes the jumpier types over the verge.
