August newspapers, as everybody knows, are unlike the newspapers of any other month. In August the temperature rises higher than the melting-point of even hard-headed city editors, and almost anything may happen. The reader, too, contributes to the confusion. Some newspaper headlines are hard to decipher in mid-January, but the haze of heat distorts even those which make sense. For instance, when the Drifter read in the Herald Tribune on August 14 that "Hull's Kin Visits His Frigate," it was quite natural, in view of the recent unpleasantness at London, that he should think of Cordell. What was his amazement, then, to read in the second line that "Granddaughter, 82, Is Shown Over Old Ironsides!" --The Nation.
