THE PHRASE “Hip is being the first in and the first out” makes sense. We all admire the investor who buys when the market is low and sells when it’s high. Similarly, most of us know someone who latches on to the latest trends before anyone else does and then stops once they become de rigueur.

I HAVE just read John Steinbeck’s “Living with Hard Times” (June). It brought back many memories. My memories are not as sad as Steinbeck’s. I had a more salable talent than Steinbeck. I was a fairly good jazz pianist. I started hitchhiking and riding freights at eighteen, in 1927.

THERE ARE men in this world who, since they were little boys, have had life beaten. There’s one in every junior high school—the kid who’s a natural on the playground, who’s irresistible to the girls, who makes the other boys jealous. Most of those boys lose it somewhere along the way; the high school heroes discover, twenty years later, that the best days of their lives were left behind in the cement-block football stadium of their teens.

ABOUT ONCE a year my friend Warren gets a phone call from his friend Peter, whom he hasn’t seen for ten years, and it always makes him uncomfortable. “Ten years,” he explained to me recently in the bar where we often meet. “I don’t know what to say to him.”

FRANK SATTERTHWAITE
TWENTY YEARS ago, when I was a frisky college sophomore, I found myself playing a match against the tennis idol of my youth, former Wimbledon and U.S. champ Vic Seixas. I was very nervous, but two things gave me heart: the sport we were playing was not tennis but squash, and he was thirty-nine—too old obviously to keep up with a young man.

<p>A couple of years ago, I happened to go to a party honoring a sculptor whose work was then the subject of a highly touted exhibit at the Museum of Modem Art in New York. The party’s host was a prominent art dealer, and after dinner the dealer led us on a tour of his private collection.</p>

<p>If you call a woman up and say, “Hey, let’s go see a movie tonight,” is that called a Date? Is it still called a Date if you call her up two weeks in advance and ask her to go to a formal dance? Or is that more like, well, a Date Date? Does “Let’s get together next Saturday” mean let’s spend two hours together or two days?</p>

<p>I love my father dearly, but when I was growing up, his idea of heaven was to have canned creamed peas with his dinner. Since he was in the business of manufacturing tin cans, I would like to believe that this was just product loyalty on his part—that he forced himself to eat such vegetables out of a sense of duty.</p>

<p>There’s more to late fall than raking the last leaves or turning on Sunday afternoon football—that is, unless you’re ready to pack it in for the year, to accept the American Heritage Dictionary's second definition of autumn: “a time or period of maturity verging on decline.”</p>

<p>A few years ago I found myself teaching high school in Brussels, a dreary city where I knew only a handful of people. It rained a lot; my knowledge of French and Flemish was limited; I didn't have much of a social life. So when the Chicago Symphony came to town that autumn and a colleague invited me to go, I went, even though I knew very little about classical music.</p>

<p>One evening not too long ago I ran into a friend of mine—let’s call him Alex Weber—on Manhattan’s Columbus Avenue. I was waving for a cab when he grabbed me; he was standing with his arm around his latest candidate for the perfect woman. Tall, blond, dazzlingly dressed, she was, Alex told me in one breath, an investment banker with a Harvard M. B. A., a Brearley education, and a father in the University Club.</p>

<p>It was a steamy summer evening, and Wally Shawn was calling from a pay phone on the street. I had asked him for a copy of a play he had written years ago, and we were arranging to rendezvous somewhere between my place and his phone booth. This was before we had ever met and a couple of months before My Dinner with André opened at the New York Film Festival, so his question wasn’t completely ridiculous.</p>

<p>Heads will turn on ski slopes this winter, as skiwear has never looked bolder or better. Joining the traditional sporty colors of red, royal blue, and navy are such bright offbeat hues as green, yellow, turquoise, and orange, often combined with black or winter white.</p>

The Other War
Twenty years ago this month, while Vietnamese generals plotted the overthrow of their president, the Kennedy administration battled bitterly over whether to support the coup. Here, for the first time, is the full tale of the White House fear and bungling that pushed our involvement inVietnam past the point of no return

<p>At Saint Francis Xavier, a French mission church in Saigon's Chinese district of Cholon, the early morning mass had just celebrated All Souls’ Day, the day of the dead. A few minutes later, the congregation gone, two men in dark-gray suits walked quickly through the shaded courtyard and entered the church.</p>

TRAVEL is no longer for just the very rich or the very idle. Nor can it be considered a two-week afterthought to fifty weeks of work. The contemporary Esquire reader travels for adventure, for business; with his friends, with his firm. Going somewhere, by plane or by boat; staying elsewhere, at a hotel or under the stars, is an essential part of the professional man&rsquo;s life.

<p>I HAVE READ THAT IDAHO WAS originally the name of Colorado, and that the state of Idaho acquired its name from a boat that sailed up the Columbia River into then-nameless territories. I have read that the great wave of westward migration passed right through Idaho and on to the coast, so that when the state was finally settled it was by a migration from the coast eastward again, beginning only in the 1880s.</p>

<p>DESPITE THE RECESSION, a Diners Club representative estimates that Americans spent nearly $140 billion on travel and entertainment in 1982, $55 billion of it for business travel. Only 3 percent of travelers account for 30 percent of travel receipts; 12 percent account for 50 percent of the total.</p>

<p>Salt Lake City has become the hub of a major ski sprawl, the Wasatch Range of the Rockies. All of the seven resorts near Salt Lake City have good conditions, but each has developed its own character. Park City, the headquarters for the U.S. Ski Team and the United States Ski Association, is popular with college skiers on spring break.</p>

It’s always a little unsettling to look at a map of South America and its continent-wide swath of dark green about three-fourths the size of the United States, representing over two and a half million square miles of tropical rain forest.</p>

<p>TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO I contracted a peculiar malady whose main symptom is a recurrent need to drive back and forth across the North American continent, Atlantic to Pacific to Atlantic, or vice versa. In milder seizures I may find myself rushing north-south (Duluth to Laredo every two or three years, Detroit to Miami perhaps once a decade), but these runs are rather less satisfying and are usually only a prelude to an east-west loop.</p>

<p>Like many artists of his generation, Brooklyn-born Robert Longo works in a style called new figuration—which is, simply, the use of realistic images rather than abstract ones as subjects. But Longo’s art has an edge: he uses his subjects to express urban angst—self-doubt, violence, fear, the breaking up of the environment.</p>

ON THE beach near the dock there is a pile of the sorts of things that you usually find in a scrapyard&mdash;old tires and automobile bodies, washing machines, cracked concrete. Your first response upon seeing it is to pass judgment on the dock owner.

TWO BOULEVARD Reine Olga is the address of what used to be known erroneously as the Royal Athens Lawn Tennis Club of Greece. I say erroneously because the courts at the club were made of a dark, wine-colored clay. In 1974 the politicians who governed the birthplace of selective democracy, tyranny, demagoguery (and a few other things not suitable for mention in a magazine like Esquire) decided it was time for the club to become more democratic and drop Royal from its title.

LISTENING THROUGH HEADPHONES to an ordinary-looking cassette on a Sony Walkman, you hear the sound of a match being struck&mdash;and is that sulfur you smell? Then a woman&rsquo;s voice whispers in your ear and you begin to feel a warm, soft breath on your cheek.

I&#39;VE ALWAYS HAD what could be called a modified Linus Pauling/ vitamin C theory about the relationship between caffeine and human evolution. Pauling, as you may know, argues that in an earlier evolutionary stage our cells were endowed with an ability to synthesize vitamin C.

EDUCATION IS FLUNKING out of budget sessions all over the country. Local administrators want the state to pay for it, the state wants the feds to pay, and the Reagan administration thinks the locals should pick up the tab. Which is why the June 20 issue of Newsweek said, &ldquo;Forget arms control.... Campaign &rsquo;84, it appears, may be education.&rdquo;

WHY MOUNT ST. Helens suddenly erupted after 123 years is not fully understood, and neither is why volcanic activity there has continued intermittently since 1980. Scientists, however, can now predict blowups by detecting changes in the size and number of earthquakes at the volcano prior to an eruption.
