"ABOUT A year ago, in Saint John, N.B., we picked up a copy of the New York Herald-Tribune. Among the book reviews was a positive paean of praise for a new detective novel, “The Brownsville Murders,” the first work of a team of new authors, B. S. Keirstead and D. Frederick Campbell.

INSPECTOR JEAN LATOUR of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police was on vacation. His rich tweeds, his pipe and his tanned face indicated the sort of vacation he liked—long walks over the windswept marsh country, where the eye could rest on the massive expanse, and the mind move in a leisured contemplation harmonious with the place and time.

A POLITICIAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
THE ROMANTIC hopes of politics never grow stale. Thus on the eve of Parliament come the old predictions about the “most momentous session.” high promises, expectations. Nor are the politicians to blame. Disillusioned and cynical, taught their own impotence by three barren sessions, they make no new promises.

THE IMPUDENCE of what I am about to write, in this chapter, is astounding, even to me. I hardly know starboard from port, or stem from bow, and my natural inclination is to call a ship “it” instead of “she.” I approach the whole problem of the Navy, as a means of defense, not with an open mind, but with a blank one.

ANGEL’S ARM is a huddled fishing settlement on the northwest coast of Newfoundland. It has the same smells of fish and nets and motor boats as a hundred other coves, the same shrill clamor of gulls and gannets when the day is fine and grizzled harbor seals are showing themselves near land.

“Death and Taxes is right. But Death doesn't get worse every time Parliament meets." W. H. Moore, M.P., in a recent speech, said:—“The mass mind does not grasp figures readily. Not long ago I was in Quebec and I told an audience that we had a per capita debt in this country of about $500 or $600, and I pointed out to them what it meant if they only had twenty children per family.

CANDIDA
IT ISN’T quite possible, at this late date, to make our reigning Queen Marie an actually romantic figure. So in recent pictures they have had the idea of throwing a tender light on the Dressier past. Thus in “Dinner At Eight’’ she is cast as Cariotta, the one-time toast of Broadway, and in “Her Sweetheart” (M. G. M.) as Abby, the sensitive ruralite, the maid who once loved and was loved by a genius.

KENNETH R. WILSON
A SLEEK SHIP laden with prairie grain steams past the Government elevator at Pcrt Colborne into the huge locks of the new Welland Ship Canal. On one side, curious motorists gape at the ease with which the cargo is handled in this $130,000,000 waterway.

LESLIE ROBERTS
IF IT SHOULD come to pass that John Irwin is introduced into your living room via the radio, rest assured that the announcer will describe him as a Dynamic Personality. As for myself, it seems more sensible to say that he is a citizen who began with nothing to speak of, a man who forced his way through the business scrimmage to emerge on top of the heap.

GAY (Prelate, Saskatchewan)
THE PROBLEMS of the man or boy who lost his job have been discussed. What about the boy who still has his job - but who got it just before the depression? He has served and, in many instances, is still serving his apprenticeship— held down to the routine of office boy or clerk while his salary, low enough to begin with, has been further reduced.

Flax in the Maritimes I am an interested reader of Maclean’s, but in the December 15 issue there is a statement of fact which I do not think should be allowed to pass unchallenged. In the Panel Portrait of Mr. F. Madure Sclanders it is stated that “Sclanders procured 800 pounds of seed and the first flax in Canada was grown on the farms of John Bracken, Seager Wheeler, ofttimes world wheat champion, and the C. P. R. Bassano Farm.”

THE HIGHEST GOOD that Western civilization can achieve in these days of flux and chaos is perhaps to be found in the Scandinavian countries, where, among other things, capitalism is controlled, writes Marquis W. Childs in Harper's. Within the past three or four decades, he says, the Scandinavian countries have evolved a new form of economic life.

F. L. deN. SCOTT
IN A SURVEY conducted by the building trades of various large cities this year, it was revealed that there has been a great increase in the number of families living in temporary quarters—rented houses, apartments or flats, and in rooms. At least twenty-five per cent more people are living in temporary quarters this year than in 1930.

English Period Furniture
All down through English history evolution in furniture has followed changes in social customs
[no value]
[no value]
DORA M. SANDERS
TO DISTINGUISH between the various periods of English furniture is very simple when you link them up with the history of the times when they first became fashionable. In furniture, as in clothes, fashions reflect the mood of the day. It is as logical that men should have taken to wing chairs in the bald-headed days of the toupee as that women should have bobbed their hair when they first went into business.
