ASTRIDE BIG MOOSE-This little girl seems to enjoy her perch
on the head of a buck moose, shot in Ontario. The moose, weigh-
ing 1,350 pounds, was said to be one of the largest ever killed in
I'M STAGGERING around these days under an inferiority complex
several feet square. The magazine for smart young women has con-
vinced me that haven't got what it takes to make a smart young
This particular magazine, the dean of the many publica-
tions devoted to getting at the American woman while she is still
immature and keeping her that way, annually brings a group of
lucky collegians to New York for a glimpse of the glorious things
in store for them when they get out in the big wide world.
'These young women must be the brightest of the Bright
Young Things, those most surely destined for success in the giddy little
world of which this magazine writes so fetchingly that the prime
qualifications for a psychologist are "a fascination for psych and a
way with moppets," and those for a career in aviation "a liking for
your head in the clouds and a yen for goggles and wings."
hOPING to discover what qualities in these girls marked them for
success, I read their contributions to the issue. One clear-eyed
young American, who regrettably plans to waste her obvious literary
talents on photography, started off her stint with, "After leaping and
bounding through frantic traffic, cocker spaniel Monty and I finally
arrived at Ylla's studio," a bit of imagery I couldn't write if I tried a
thousand years. I suppose we are to assume that she leaped 4nd Mon-
ty bounded.
Another future career woman babbles, "I had to pinch myself
to realize that I was to meet the publisher of the New York Times
my first day in New York!" Someone must have forgotten the cus-
tomary training period.
A starry-eyed Thespian neophyte (this thing is catching) oil
meeting Lynn Fontanne, was moved to remark, "Me! in Lynn Fon-
tanne's dressing room, backstage at "0 Mistress Mine." Hot mirror
lights, sweet-smelling grease paint, and Miss Fontanne being charm-
ing to a shaky theatre devotee." It's not every day that mirror lights,
grease paint, and Lynn Fontanne all bother to be charming to one
person at the same time.
THE YOUNG VISITOR with literary ambition, Sarah, rises head
and shoulders above the rest of the crew in the use of this partic-
lar art form. She starts off her book review column with an intimate
glimpse into dinner at the restaurant Francais Couret with Harvey
Breit, whimsically confiding to her readers her ignorance of French.
"After Mr. Breit's helpful translations, at some loss to my dig-
nity, we turned from dinner-ordering to the short story and stayed
with it from soup to demi tasse plural." Picking her hair up off the
floor, she conducts us through a series of interviews with literary celeb-
rities. It is her comment on one of these, which, to my mind, stamps
Sarah as something unusual. Of Miss Kay Boyle, she says, "Her won-
derful vitality expressed itself even in the vigorous way she stirred
her tea."
I'm proud of Sarah for that observation and let's all hope
she didn't get splashed. Her writing may not yet have reached
the professional level-I'm afraid the way with moppets line
might still be a bit above her-but she's definitely going places.
Toss me that dishmop, mother, I feel awfully domestic.
