Context


Amory and Frog Parker considered that the greatest line in literature occurred in Act III of «Arsene Lupin.»
They sat in the first row at the Wednesday and Saturday matinees. The line was:
«If one can't be a great artist or a great soldier, the next best thing is to be a great criminal.»
Amory fell in love again, and wrote a poem. This was it:
«Marylyn and Sallee, Those are the girls for me. Marylyn stands above Sallee in that sweet, deep love.»
He was interested in whether McGovern of Minnesota would make the first or second All-American, how to do the card-pass, how to do the coin-pass, chameleon ties, how babies were born, and whether Three-fingered Brown was really a better pitcher than Christie Mathewson.” source
