Notes and Comment

May 1962
New Yorker;5/19/1962, Vol. 38 Issue 13, p31
The article comments on various issues such as some U.S. ex-presidents, the dance called Twist, and the expanding universe of knowledge. Ex-President Dwight Eisenhower had criticized the Twist by comparing it unfavorably with the minuet. However, the Europeans had taken the Twist and provided it with intricacies and graces. The plan to test nuclear bombs in the van Allen radiation belt is appreciated because the testing occurs far away from the planet.
