A Welcome Disenchont- rrjenf In the last clays of (lie polilicnl campaign,,when Initb and. reason were looking decidedly groggy, we came upon two advertisements which renewed our hopes for the survival of those estimable virtues. Turning back lo those ads today, now thai the lim-ly-Jnirly's done, we still find them encouraging enough to pass along as a preview of a possible better world to come. One ad was put out by an aircraft manufacturer, the other l>y a maker of shaving cream. And both /approached their subject with a candor which copy writers commonly shun, apparently on the assumption that such an approach is too true to be good. The aircraft concern is talking about the helicopter, which it plans to make after the war. Now the helicopter, as everyone knows, has had a tremendous buildup as the air flivver of the future —one smart New York shop has even had a "helicopter fashion show," But here is the gist of what one of its future manufacturers has to say: "Flying a helicopter is not a job for a novice . . . Helicopters, if they could be purchased on Die market today, would :be more expensive than the most cosljy automobile . . . Helicopters are likely to be costly for some time lo conie ... It has not yet been demon- slrated that a helicopter is any more safe or less safe than any oilier aircraft." The shaving cream people went about selling thciv wares by slating a painful trulii which lias too long been avoided. "The word pleasure," they said, "shouldn't ever be mentioned in the same breath with shaving . , . the whole business, we say, is at best a •nuisance and a bore." Such talk can scarcely fail to have a healthy effect upon our civilization. Think, for instance, of the sadness and confusion that must have resulted already from the unnatural association of shaving and pleasure. Downy-faced youths have approached the brush and -razor with the notion that these symbols of manhood would combine the pleasures of a turkish bath and massage. There is no need to dwell upon their disillusionment. Time passc.d, the beard toughened, and shaving became a "nuisance .and a bore." Yet the ads continued to proclaim its pleasures. It was enough to shake a man's faith in things generally, Now if the same disenchantment can be forestalled in tomorrow's wonderful world of plastics, electronics and family nelicopters we shall be happier. Not that we doubt that these things will come. But too.many people seem to have the .idea that because \ve have been foiced to stop our normal progress for the grim business of killing and destruction, we shall immediately step PLYTHEVILLP <ARK.)'

He glared at me. "What's (hat idiotic gdn on your face for? Anything funny flbout me?" This sudden crack took the wind l.oul of my sails, I looked ut him perplexedly. ; "I wasn't grinning.

"The way you stand there looking at me you'd think I was a museum piece. 'It (here's anything funny about .me, say so. Maybe my nose is green. Or there's straw in my hair ..." i He began sputtering the way he •always did when he worked himself. into a rage. Now it was all clear to me.

I know better than to argue when Boggio gets that way. ! sat down, fixed my gaze on a cigaret bum in the carpet, and waited .for the storm lo blow over. But it didn't. He got off the divan, shoved his feet into a pair of red leather slippers and started pacing up and down. "What the hell do you do with yourself ;ill day, Leo? Why aren't you learning?

I got up, walked over to the kitchen and brought back a glass of water lie gulped it down, then panted, 1 gelling back his wind. It looked like an opportune moment for nutting in my l w b cents' worth "Look, Virgil," I said quietly. You don't like the way I'm earning my dough. I don't like it either. D'you think I get any kick out of those piddling little jobs you've been giving me? Drawm- ap contracts that a half-baked law student could do with one hand tied behind his hack. I'd like lo sink my teeth info something worthwhile. I'm ambitious and I'm getting stale. AH those months yon were away in Cuba I was waiting for you. And you got back in the nick'of time.
