  • I've Kept My Name

    In answer to the anonymous article, "I Changed My Name," in the February Atlantic, comes this forthright rebuttal. It takes a Southerner to stand up so indignantly on an issue as touchy as this. DAVID L. COHN is a Mississippian who studied at the University of Virginia and at Yale, and whose books on the Negro (God Shakes Creation), on American industry (The Good Old Days), and on matrimony (Love in America) mark him as a very versatile writer indeed.

  • American in the Making

    A native of New York City, son of Italian immigrants, FIORELLO H. LA GUARDIA spent his boyhood in Arizona, where his father was bandmaster of the 11th U.S. Infantry, and his early manhood in Fiume, where as our Consular Agent he continued the self-education which was to make him one of the most creative statesmen of our time. In this, the first of three installments drawn from his autobiography, which he did not live to finish, we see the unforgettable interaction between his youthful experience and his mature legislation. The autobiography, edited by M. R. Werner, will be published by Lippincott in May.
