First Balloon Ascent .The first balloon ascent In Amer lea was made In 1793 by Jen Blanchard, a Frenchman, who ha achieved fame somewhat earlier b completing the first air crossing o the English Channel. Pitching Horseshoes HY BUXV ROSE A year ago, T wrote a book called Wine, Women and Words," and a e\v months before publication one i the editors of Reader's Digest jhoned and said, "We've read the Alleys and would like to run a condensation in several of our foreign editions." "That's fine," I said, and then, •emcmbering my grab-bag grammar and tipsy tavernaculnr I got a little panicky. Who in Helsinki would know *hat .'mackerel snatcher" meant a seal, and "chesty cake- valkcr" a pigeon? 'Who's going to translate for the translators?" I .kcd. The ndilor told me not lo brood. Last svcek the i.-.allinan dropped off the September Issue of Selection du Reader's Digest and you could :iave knocked me over with an escargot when I. saw that "Champagne. Danseuses. et Stylo&raphe" had been translated by Mr. Mont- mar Ire himself—Maurice Chevalier. What In the '^ame of Christian Dior, I asked myself, hall persuaded tills million - franc - a - week entertainer to turn my clip-clop English into galloping Gallic? Well, the best way to get a qu Uon answered i' lo ask it, and so last Monday, ort my way in from Mt. Kisco, I stopped off at Pleasantville and looked up the editor who had phoned me. "For a while," he said, "our translator in Paris were stumpec by your Broadwayese. Then Piere Denoyer, our editor there, went to see Maurice Chevalier, figuring he knew his Time- Square as perhaps no other Frenchman. Maurice sale he thought It would be great fun, and when he turned in his translation a few weeks later a 'cinch bet' had b come 'candy,' 'Iron- stomached citizens who sturvived Prohibition' had been changed to 'the hard-cooked ones.' and since razzle-dazzle and razzmatazz' was untranslatable Into French, he had made it 'plalsantcr sur dcs plalsant- irie's plaisiintcs,' which Is untranslatable Into English." • ' "In how many countries do you sell your Magazine?" I asked. "We print nineteen editions In eleven languages and sell about seven million copies each month In fifty-six foreign countries." "There must be a lot of amusing differences In readers' tastes around the world ",T said. "By and Inrse." the editor told me. "we find that the pulling power of an article is in direct ratio to how closely it affects the reader. Our polls Indi :le that folks In all countries want to know the same basic things—how to keep well, how to'succeed and hoiv to be happier." "All the same. "I said, "a discussion of strictly American problems can't have much appeal. to a man five thousand miles away." "Foreign readers are interested In almost anything that has to do with life In the United States," said the .editor. "Of course, there are exceptions. For instance, we seldom use pieces in Scandinavia about old age pensions, health Insurance and employer-emlpoyee relations: The Danes, Swedes and Norwegians consider them old hat because the United States Is so far River Work Planned MEMPHIS, Oct. 7. (/P>—A $433,640 contract for work at three points on the Mississippi River has been awarded to Markham <t Brown and L-. L. Sanders of Dallas, the District Engineers said yesterday.

" • On my way into New York, I got to thinking of the Impact of this pocket-size periodical on the thlnk^ Ing of the world. As I' get It, its square circulation here and abroad Is better than 16,000,000 r copies a month and, Judging by 1 my recent trip around the world, ;lt probably comes closer to being the Voice of America than the Voice Itself. For one thln 6 , pe ile on this oversized eight-ball have more,'eyes than radios and. for another, a privately- published magazine escapes the suspicion which is attached to anything official. • My house In Mt. Kisco is only five miles from the Digest's editorial offices, and my wife says she doesn't like this one .. little bit.
