Short blurbs on the magazine's "contributors" (in fact, these are tongue-in-cheek imitations) published on pages 2 and 3. Extensive advertising for alcohol, fur coats, automobiles, perfume, etc. - chiefly products appealing to the wealthy. Numerous engaging articles presented in a concise and interesting format.
