John Collier
The Vascal System is the most reliable, the most up-to-date, and the most scientific method of foretelling the future by cards. It is true the operator cannot tell his own fortune, but that drawback seems to be common to all methods, and in every other way the successes of the Vascal System have been prodigious.

Every jazz fan has his favorite stars -- the performers he considers the greatest. Playboy has asked me to pick mine -- not just two or three men, but enough for a full, star studded jazz band.

Delmore Schwartz
Susan Calhoun thought that Daddy was an old dear, the darlingest dear, although he did make sour remarks sometimes. But it was Mummy who was really keen. She was one in a million, she really was, she understood what it was to be a girl in 1950. Daddums was very sweet too, the soul of kindness, and Mummy would convince him that they would not be in the least mistaken or ill-advised to let their quite attractive daughter go to art school in New York and live in New York City instead of going to college. She was just seventeen, but seventeen was not the bib-and-diaper stage some parents thought it was. She was older than seventeen in the ways of a woman and the world which was more important than anything else for a woman to be if she was a girl. Something was definitely wrong with career girls and career women.

A big fire was burning, and the tea table was set for two. The Count de Sallure threw his hat, gloves and fur coat on a chair, while the countess, who had removed her opera cloak, was smiling amiably at herself in the glass and arranging a few stray curls with her jeweled fingers. Her husband had been looking at her for the past few minutes, as if on the point of saying something, but hesitating; finally he said:

Ronald Searle is one of England's very best cartoonists. His drawings appear regularly in Punch and he's most famous for his Charles Addams-like inhabitants of a girl's school named St. Trinians. Americans are getting a chance to meet these girls in a recently released film titled, The Belles of St. Trinians, starring Alastair Sim, and Alfred A. Knopf has published a book of his choicest cartoons called The Female Approach.
