THIS IS Harry Stein’s last month as our Ethics columnist. And I want you to know that I am going to miss him in that role as much as I imagine you will. As Mr. Ethics, 1he has shared with all of us more of his inner struggles, more of his personal life than any other current magazine columnist.

<p>THERE WAS nothing to indicate that life did not love John Chase Wood Jr. At age thirty-one he was a resident in surgery at New York’s Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, one of the nation’s most prestigious institutions. He was planning to specialize in pediatric surgery and had spent three years as a resident in pediatrics.</p>

<p>IN THE middle of the 1950s, when television was just passing the stage of being a novelty in American homes, something important happened. People had already become used to the idea of the TV set introducing strangers to them. What had been inconceivable only a few years before—the concept of moving pictures appearing in one’s own home, inside an electronic box— was on its way to becoming commonplace.</p>

HARRY STEIN
SEVERAL MONTHS ago, I got a letter from a woman in Florida who was seeking an arbiter in an ongoing philosophical argument with her husband. The husband, she wrote, maintains that “in life one should expect nothing. In that way you are never disappointed— He feels that I am often hurt because I expect too much of others.”

IN 1980, John Howard, one of America’s premier bicycle racers for over twelve years, was at the apex of his training. Still as spare and sleek as a cheetah at thirty-three years old but no longer challenged by the bike-racing circuit, Howard sought a new avenue for his athletic abilities.

Last October, at an auction held by Christie’s in New York City, someone paid $95,000 for a shotgun. That gun was a Parker, arguably the finest American-made shotgun, but its virtues were far from obvious, even to the crowd at Christie’s.

Time was, back in the video Stone Age, home movies meant Super 8: bouncy, blurry, silent film that all too often got tangled and fell off the reel. Yet the temptation to make one’s own movies is irresistible. And now, outfitted with a first-rate video system, you’ve got the stuff that professional-looking movies are made of.

When a man steps into the kitchen, he usually hopes for spectacular results; my needs were more pedestrian. “The meatball is in your court tonight,” my wife would announce breezily as she left for work in the morning. Several times a week, I had to put food on the table, and I didn’t want it to take any more time than absolutely necessary.

As drinkers we are not accustomed to fundamental pleasures. We tend to think of drinks as concoctions. To prepare a drink is to mix one. According to a familiar pretense, a bartender is a mixologist. And yet, stripped of social habitat, stripped of the popular accouterments—the ice, the mixers, the straws, and the garnishes—stripped to the bottle and the shot glass, liquors have qualities that allow them to stand quite nicely solo.

Mark well the wing collar shown on this page. No article of clothing in a man’s wardrobe is more difficult or exasperating to put on. The collar is starched as stiff as a board and must be attached while you’re in the shirt: two studs through tiny holes in six starched layers of shirt and collar—infuriating, not to mention tying the tie.

The notion of the small, elegant hotel was once entirely European —the George V in Paris, the Connaught in London, the Inghilterra in Rome. Yet today, in America, there are alternatives to the dormitories in the sky that travel agents are so quick to suggest.

The car has some problems. The driver’s seat belt won’t latch. The left front fender has a dimple that Kirk Douglas might envy. There is a wrinkle in the overhead cloth, aft of the sunroof. So far, in fact, the car is just as it was when I found it two weeks ago, lurking there in the original owner’s garage.

<p>THE PACIFIC WAS GRAY-GREEN AND FORBIDDING. DARK CLOUDS HUNG LOW OVER THE BEACH, FUELED BY THE SMOKESTACKS OF THE GENERATING PLANTS JUST UP THE COAST, ALMOST smothering the tankers anchored offshore. A dozen surfers were out in the water, bobbing up and down like ducks, fighting over some mushy, two-foot-high waves.</p>

WITH A NOD TO THE PRINCE OF WALES, handsome plaid sport coats continue to endure as a venerable mainstay in a gentleman’s wardrobe. This season’s versions of the jacket, in luxurious silk fabrics, boast distinctive and daring colorings and an offhand, rakish sort of charm that place even a commoner a step ahead and apart from the crowd.

<p>ITS ALWAYS GRATIFYING when innovation shatters the complacency of jazz. Until recently jazz iconoclasm was associated almost exclusively with youth; the innovators made their marks by their mid-twenties—Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker at twenty-five, Coleman Hawkins at twenty-two, Miles Davis at nineteen.</p>

PLAYING: OLD AND NEW DREAMS (ECM-l-1205, $9.98) FREE LANCING: JAMES BLOOD ULMER (COLUMBIA ARC 37493, $7.98) We have here something akin to a novel in which the central character has taken a powder. The elusive protagonist is Ornette Coleman, whose latest chapter on the fusion of free jazz and electric funk was recorded a couple of years ago but is just now being scheduled for release.

MICHAEL BANE
<p>WHEN HE WAS eight years old, in 1957, and all his friends were getting ready for another year of elementary school, Hank Williams Jr. went on the road for the first time. The opening show was in Swainsboro, Georgia, and the son of country music’s most enduring legend walked onstage with his hands stuffed in the pockets of his black cowboy suit, surveyed his audience, and in his high tenor voice began singing his daddy’s songs:</p>

STILL THE SAME OLE ME: GEORGE JONES (EPIC FE 37106, $8.98) Reportedly, George Jones’s personal and business affairs are in even sadder shape than usual. But his sadness is as fit as the great Vassar Clements’s fiddle. If a report were to come in that George Jones had been elected chairman of the PLO or Barnard College, or that he had been found nestled among wild animals in a cave in Kauai or a root cellar in Maine, or that he had been seen around with Liza Minnelli or the pope, we would be surprised.

If you’re talking about the singer-pianist who made the best soul recordings of the late Sixties and early Seventies—“Respect,” “Chain of Fools,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” being only a few of the best known—there’s no question: that’s ’Retha.</p>

OCTOBER: U2 (ISLAND ILPS 9680, $8.98) U2’s second album is a stunner for a myriad of reasons, two of them being that (a) you have your whole life to prepare for your debut record and less than a year to conceive and produce a follow-up (the sophomore jinx, rock style) and (b) bass player Adam Clayton is the oldest member of the band, and he’s only twenty-one.

MAHLER: SYMPHONY NO. 2 (LONDON LDR 72006, 2 RECORDS, $25.96, A DIGITAL RECORDING) In Mahler’s second symphony, an outsized affair for extended orchestra and chorus, the then thirty-four-year-old composer addressed himself to nothing less than a musical conjuring of the Day of Judgment and the Resurrection of the Dead.

LATE ONE winter night, I found myself with a brown grocery bag full of pheasant feathers. I had plucked five birds because that is what the recipe called for— plucked birds. It had taken about two hours (I could have skinned them in twenty minutes), and it seemed a shame to waste all those feathers.

INTIMATIONS OF mortality clang like a trolley in The Dean’s December (Harper & Row, $12.95), Saul Bellow’s first novel since he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1976. As in John Updike’s recent Rabbit Is Rich, death and civilization’s decline seem to be falling through the air in The Deans December like a drizzle of black ash.
