WHAT, NOT ALREADY?

OUR regular waiter downtown Deutsch & Graun, a gentleman by name of Everett, has a happy habit of calling out "What, not already?” whenever we depar this commendable bar-restaurant-whether it's 6 p.m. or after midnight. Which is the way feel about concluding our round the-world articles in this issue. One reward of a writer is that he gets to relive his journey as he turns notes into magazine copy, but more satisfying than that is the chance to say - in word and photo to someone who hasn't or won't or can't go overseas: I think you'll like this Garratt, that 2-footer, those Japanese in terurbans. And judging by the mail we've won We hope you're one of them.
