Using the one pencil in our cell. There are 16 beds in here and, during the day, the kids down the corridor spend their time with us. At night they sleep in tiny three-foot-wide cells. Right now there are 36 of us crowded in here. Looking around, I’d say the room’s about 18-by-30 feet.

THE STORY YOU ARE about to read, hockey fans, is an exercise in humanitarian concern. Its basis may be rigid and bloodless and coolly scientific — dependent, as it is, on the workings of a computer — but its intent is as kindly and people-oriented as anything Albert Schweitzer ever cooked up.

IN ALL THE ENDEAVORS of man there are those who transcend the merely brilliant and become so outstanding that when most of us measure our efforts against theirs we despair. When doing whatever it is they do so surpassingly well, such people have a charisma, an electricity, about them.

Here I was dragging around the house, cleaning, wondering why I’m doing it, not really caring and bang — up comes the mailman. For a minute I think he is going to leave me National Geographic as he has it in his hand but, no, he leaves me an oil bill and Maclean’s.

MY BUDGET WAS SUCH that I expected to get no farther than London, and so it seemed delightfully improbable to be sitting in the sun at an outdoor café in Las Palmas, Canary Islands, alternately sipping five-cent Spanish brandy and a nickel cup of treacly black coffee (“blood thickener” they call it), trying to read but being distracted by the passing parade of leggy Scandinavian blondes.

How All Those 'Love Guide's Can Lead Us Astray About Sex

THERE’S AN OLD SAYING from the north of England that goes: “If the bedroom isn’t happy, neither is any other room in the house.” And that truth, along with The Pill and the New Morality and Women’s Liberation, has produced a situation in which Dr. Stephen Neiger, Canada’s twice married top expert on sex, says: “The average couple who come to me have been having sexual difficulties for five to 10 years.
