Okay, U.K. -- From an antique land -- Give-away, give-away, banker man -- Goose population gains high level -- Guess what I'd rather be than a tender apple blossom -- Have Caesar, or Boadicea's revenge -- He didn't dare look, or, The puzzling uniqueness of Mr. Saltbody's meekness -- High, low the comedy: a winter's tale -- If ethyl vanillin be the food of love, drink on -- Is this any way to advertise an airline? You bet it is! -- Is there a Dr. Johnson in the house? -- The madcap zoologist -- I wonder what they brought from Ghent to Aix -- Men's lib as lib -- Mini-Jabberwocky -- The moping minstrel -- Most doctors recommend, or, Yours for fast fast fast relief -- The Museum of Natural History -- Nobody's perfect, are they, but wouldn't it be nice? -- No trouble at all, it's as easy as falling off a portable bar -- One man's opiate -- Pix sheets top Keats feats -- Please remind me before I forget -- Political reflection -- Recitatifs never to be recited at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts -- Reflection on barefoot hostess with cheek of tan -- Reflection on the decoration detestable -- Reflection on hospital hospitality -- The rejected portrait -- The reward -- The sad case of the expatriate socialite, or, It's never in the phrase book -- A goose for the sauce -- Sexual politics farewell -- The slipshod scholar gets around to Greece -- Speak to me only with thine eyes, and please, not too fast -- Sweet land of capitals -- Three little maids from school -- We have met the Sassenachs and they are ours; even the year is now McMLXIX -- What do you want, a meaningful dialogue, or a satisfactory talk? -- What's it like outside? or, It's always fair weather unless somebody says it isn't -- Which the chicken, which the egg? -- Who, sir? Me, sir? No, sir, the "Times," sir! -- You steer and I'll toot, or, All's slick that ends slick -- You could knock some people over with a feather, or Life is just a bowl of surprises.
