James Jones likes to write big, fat novels like From Here To Eternity, with the result that very little short fiction has had a chance to roll out of his busy typewriter – only eight or nine stories, by his own count. And, as he told us recently, "It doesn't look like I'll be writing any more for a while – not until I've finished this new book, anyway." Which makes us all the happier that we're able to give you, in this College Issue of Playboy, a brand new James Jones story about a great jazzman, "The King."

Thorne Smith
Until quite recently, Mr. Hector Owen's chief occupation in life had been vaguely connected with the law. He was, or so his sheepskin from Harvard testified, an attorney. A nice, simple sort of occupation, one might think, not demanding too much in the way of patience or forbearance. Mr. Owen, however, found both of these qualities taxed to the utmost.

Men, is your club, lodge or fraternity treasury low? Is the rent overdue? The liquor bill unpaid? Do you have to loot the Sick and Welfare Fund to buy clean pinochle decks? Or borrow from the Burial Account to get all the brothers in the burlesque on Friday nights?

Let's remember that the primary function of clothing is still to keep you warm in the winter and out of jail in the summer. Beyond that, the attire you choose to wear is almost as limitless as your own imagination–especially on campus.

James Jones
When we met Willy Jefferson, "King" Jefferson, our band had already been following his progress for over five years. His records used to cause more argument in our band than Stephen Grappelly's Hot Four and the question of whether the violin ought not to be morally disqualified as a jazz instrument. All we had to do was to put on some of King's records and listen to that trumpet, and we would end up by bringing in everybody from Panassié and Rudi Blesh to Dave Dexter, Jr.

We wanted to give readers something special in this College Issue of Playboy, so we asked Hal Adams to photograph two of California's loveliest models, to give us a double chance at picking the Playmate of the Month. Hal's setting was appropriately collegiate and both models were as lovely as ordered.

Foreign Car Quiz

Joseph C. Stacey
You Probably Admire the sleek lines of these foreign jobs that are purring along U. S. boulevards these days, and perhaps you drive one yourself. But how are you when it comes to naming the countries that produce them? Below you'll find a list of thirteen foreign cars. And alongside, a list of five nations. Can you match cars and countries? A score of 8 is a respectable cruising speed; at 10 you're approaching the speed limit; and at 13, your gas pedal's down to the floor.
