A War Like No Other (Hearst's Sunday American, 1917)

An article by the admired British war correspondent Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett (1881 - 1931) concerning those aspects of the 1914 war that combined to make the entire catastrophe something unique in human history:

"Everything has changed; uniforms, weapons, methods, tactics. Cavalry had been rendered obsolete by trenches, machine guns and modern artillery; untrained soldiers proved useless, special battalions were needed on both sides to fight this particular kind of war that, in no way, resembled the battles your father or grand-fathers had once fought."
A good read.

Down With Christian Dior and His ''New Look''! (Rob Wagner's Script, 1947)

The California fashion critic who penned this article believed that the fashions of Christian Dior stood firmly in opposition to the optimistic, Twentieth Century casual elegance of Claire McCardell (1905 – 1958) and Adrian (1903 – 1959). She could not bare Dior, with his vulgar penchant to spin

"the feminine figure in the unconventional manner, trying to make her look good where she ain't. He seeks the ballet dancer illusion - natural, rounded shoulders, too weak to support a struggling world...Her waist is pinched in an exaggerated indentation, the better to emphasize her padded hips...There are butterfly sleeves, box pockets, belled jackets, and barreled skirts, suggesting something like a Gibson girl, or whatever grandmother should have worn."

''The Low State of High Society'' (Coronet Magazine, 1958)

Another article by a highbred, woebegone, blue-blood who, plagued by a boatload of distinguished primogenitors and over-burdened by a lavish trust fund - to say nothing of a bad case of affluenza, could take no more of it; she broke-down and scribbled the attached expose in hopes that the whole highfalutin' plutocracy would come crashing down on top of all those icky, pompous know-it-alls.

"Life for America's so-called social aristocrats is colorless and uninspired. Our education, now that I look back at it, seems to have produced a frightening number of properly mannered, emotionally passive and intellectually sterile young snobs... This training is not easily overcome."

Gosh. We thought only Howard Zinn wrote like that.

Enter China (Quick Magazine, 1950)

On Friday, November 3, 1950 Mao Tse-Tung (1893 – 1976) ordered the Chinese Army to intervene in the Korean War on behalf of the the retreating North Korean Army:

"...perhaps [as many as] 250,000 Chinese Communists jumped into the battle for Northwest Korea; at best, their intervention meant a winter campaign in the mountains; at worst, a world war."

From Amazon: The Korean War: The Chinese Intervention

The Birth of Airline Food (Coronet Magazine, 1945)

"Newton Wilson, a modest, quiet, somewhat academic man who never leaps before he looks through, in and around a situation, became the 20th Century innovator of precise recipes; a sort of Fanny Farmer of flying."

When the Word Became Flesh (Jesus People Magazine, 1973)

The Christian concept of death is contained in this article by the ancient Greek author Athanasius (296 - 373).

"All those who believe in Christ tread death underfoot as nothing and prefer to die rather than to deny their faith in Christ, knowing full well that when they die, they do not perish, but live indeed, and become incorruptible through the the resurrection. Death has become like a tyrant who has become completely conquered by the legitimate monarch and bound hand and foot so that the passers-by jeer at him."

Red Goals For American Society (Congressional Record, 1963)

When we read this transcript from The Congressional Record we were flabbergasted! You will find that it is a compilation that was pieced together in the late Fifties listing all the changes America's Communist enemies wished to see take place in the United States in order to make their mission of conquest that much easier - yet as you read the list you quickly recognize that at least 85% of this tally fell into place as recently as 2020.

''Class Magazines'' (Scribner's Magazine, 1938)

This article looks at the rise of Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and House & Garden - recognizing them as highly unique publications for their time. Special attention is paid to publisher Condé Nast and his meteoric rise during the early 20th Century.

"Vogue and Harper's Bazaar dominate the "class field", which does not mean at all that they, with the other class magazines, have a monopoly of readers with intelligence, culture or manners. It means that advertisers and advertising agencies are convinced that the people who buy them have, on the average, more money... The class magazines exude an aura of wealth and their circulations, therefore, are limited. They cater to the fit though few and they do this with slick paper, excellent illustrations and a sycophantic reverence for Society - at thirty-five to fifty cents a copy."

The Pandemic of 1918 (Scribner's Magazine, 1938)

"The Spanish Influenza (February 1918 - April 1920) struck hard in the U.S. Army camps. Every fourth man came down with the flu, every twenty-fourth man caught pneumonia, every sixth man died."

By the time the virus ran its course in the United States 675,000 Americans would succumb (although this article estimated the loss at 500,000).

How Americans Look To The Japanese (American Magazine, 1942)

In this article, photographer Frederick L. Hamilton recalled his two years in Japan prior to the Pearl Harbor attack; he let's lose with all he learned concerning how the Japanese perceived the Americans:

"They think we are soft, wasteful, irreverent and stupid...Most serious of all to the Japanese is their belief that we have no spiritual quality, no sense of honor."
