IN SPITE of the fact that, as we write, there still remain thirty-eight shopping days before Christmas, we have no difficulty at all in capturing the Yuletide spirit. We happen to be on a train in the heart of the Rockies. There isn’t a mountain to be seen because it is snowing hard and dark clouds hang low.

THE WORLD generally is suffering from outside jitters. Last night this man decided to build a new house or buy a new suit. Last night that man decided to buy a new car or a new radio. This morning each picked up a newspaper and read of an impending war, of a drop in wheat, of a strike, of happenings thousands of miles away.

HUGH WALPOLE
THE EVENT that I am about to describe took place several years ago in Polchester and although it may not seem to the outside world very startling, it upset, in one way or another, Polchester society for months after it occurred. Its importance in that town sprang from two causes: one, the interest in the character and appearance of Menzies himself; the other, I am afraid, a certain malicious pleasure in the unhappiness caused to Mrs. Cronin and the check that it implanted on her social career.

YOU WRITERS,” a woman once said to me in my younger days, “must have such interesting lives.” “Why?” I asked. “Because all the time you must be looking out for unusual people and travelling to unusual places.” “Why?” I ventured to repeat. "To get the material for your stories, of course.”

THE APARTMENT was exactly as she had left it, and Sally Trowbridge felt vaguely cheated. The pictures and rugs and lamps had an infuriatingly smug air of permanence about them, suggesting pointedly that she needn’t think anything she could do would make any difference.

WHEN THE King administration took office on the night of October 23, six of the Ministers looked about the Privy Council chamber for the first time; left it with their first red Morocco leather Bible in hand—the memento most coveted by all Politicians.

LIKE sleepwalkers we moved into the sharp air. Hussin led us out of an old postern and then through a place like an orchard to the shelter of some tall evergreen trees. There horses stood, champing quietly from their nosebags. “Good,” I thought; “a feed of oats before a big effort.”

IF IT were not for the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides of Canada, thousands of Canadian homes would experience that pathetic tragedy of childhood —the empty stocking on Christmas morning. Statistics published by the Dominion headquarters of the Scout Toyshops in Ottawa show that more than 80,000 needy children across Canada were benefitted by cheering Yuletide gifts last year as the result of the kindly thought of Scouts and Guides who operated some 175 Christmas Toyshops over a chain stretching from North Sydney to Prince Rupert.

HOCKEY’S Miracle Man! That is what hockey’s wise men call Thomas Patrick Gorman, vice-president and manager of the Montreal Maroons, holders of the Stanley Cup and rulers of the professional hockey world. But it is not merely his last season’s record with the Maroons which brought Gorman this title.

EARLY WINTER twilight was first an indigo haze on the mountains and now a deepening blue shadow on the snow; and Tryg Hildreth, gazing down from the top of the ski hill, saw that he was alone, the vistas below deserted. Far down among the tree tops, the landing was a pool of violet dusk.

TONIGHT and every night until late next spring thousands of amateur stage villains throughout Canada will be stroking thousands of heavy mustaches, accompanying the gesture with the requisite number of "Heh-heh’s.” Thousands of nice girls will wince from the unaccustomed bristle and tickle of their stage lover’s lips; and smooth-faced, meek adolescents will become blustering landlords or kindly senile grandfathers.

PUBLIC INTEREST in the contest for the so-called “Blue Ribbon of the Atlantic,” held at present by the French superliner, Normandie, is rising with the completion of Britain's great Queen Mary. The hopes of the British marine world, and of Britons generally, are pinned on the Cunard-White Star flyer.

TRANSATLANTIC Tunnel" is so colossal, so filled with energy and crazy purpose and so overwhelmingly technical that the producers, you are likely to feel, might just as well have built the tunnel while they were at it, instead of simply making a picture about it.

ELECTRICALLY HEATED by current from the battery, a new windshield wiper blade keeps the glass clean in all weather. An ultra-violet glass tube throws out a steady heat that helps to melt ice and snow as the wiper moves back and forth. The blade is made of long-life rubber with ten contact points.

STERLING” is an ancient word. It is a contraction of “Easterling.” In the twelfth century there flourished in Germany the Hanseatic League, comprising certain free towns. These towns issued money of their own, and in trading with English merchants, gave their silver coins for British cattle, sheep and grain.

FIRST impressions and happy endings being what they are, it is important to have something very good indeed to begin and top off a meal. Christmas dinner is no exception, though we are bound to admit that the start and the finish are in the nature of accessories before and after the great fact of the main course.

SMART PEOPLE who were the first to toy with pretty little mah jong tiles and who went in for markers made of semi-precious stones for their backgammon sets, have a new passion. They are buying, so help us, jacks! Common ordinary jacks that small girls play with on the sidewalk after school, and little black india-rubber balls to go with them.
