THESE are days when a writer on world affairs can hardly finish an article before it is out of date. The pages of his manuscript are blown about by the hurricane of events.” So begins Beverley Baxter’s London Letter on page eleven of this issue (unless by the time we get this written it too has gone with the wind).

TIM BUCK, Communist leader who last year came pretty close to being elected a controller of the city of Toronto, has been spending some time in Moscow. He reported the recent Purge Trials for the Daily Worker, of Toronto, and spent a lot of somebody’s money on cable tolls to tell the Worker's readers that the trials were conducted in a manner superior to that of the Canadian courts.

M. GRATTAN O’LEARY
SOME TIME after these lines are published, the Conservative Party, temporarily leaderless and rudderless, will be holding its second national convention in eleven years. Irreverent observers, watching the convention preparations, ask whether the Party is to have "its face lifted,” whether it is to be "streamlined.”

TEDDIE JANESS
THE WORLD, decided Emmy-May McKeever, was bad. Bad to have had her born into a family that sneaked off for the day, leaving a note to the effect that if she’d stay home once in a while she could go places with them, a note which further expressed their confidence in her ability to get her own supper, and commanded her, for goodness sake, to cut the front lawn.

YOU own a car. You are sixteen years of age or more. You have enough money to pay for the purchase of a driver's license, and the lease of a set of plates from your provincial government for one year. So armed with these vital requirements, you present yourself in person at the automobile license bureau most conveniently situated to your home.

THE DESK clerk telephoned up to Ryan’s room that a girl had just come into the lobby asking what his name was and what room he had. “Thought you’d like to know. Might be worth looking into.” Larry Ryan was mystified. If someone had asked him to go out in the street and fight, it would have been less disconcerting.

NEWSPAPER headlines screamed; Parliament poured heated words into Hansard; provincial legislators said nasty things in front of the Speaker's chair. All because Canada was staging, early this year, a fulldress debate about selling a few thousand horsepower of electric energy to a big United States customer.

THE PAGE of a newspaper no larger than a Canadian Coronation stamp. The contents of thirty volumes in a brief case. A mile of library shelving concentrated in a few cubic feet. A ton of printed matter reduced to a pound of film. This is not the dream of a fevered mind, but is an actual fact soon to be as commonplace as the radio.

IT IS important not to breathe through the mouth. Exhalation should also be through the nostrils, since the warm air returned from the lungs warms the nostrils and preserves the suppleness of the muscles up to the eustachian tube. Neglect of nosebreathing and the resulting lack of this warmed air (which passes through the eustachian tube to the eardrum) leads to hardening of the eardrum.

IT APPEARS that the Irish Sweepstakes are not such a blessing for the hospitals that are supposed to be benefitted, after all. With so much money coming in, say the one-time subscribers, why should they bother to support them? And, say the people who go to the hospitals, why should they pay for treatment?

DEAR JOHN: Iam going to write this time briefly say “Don’t,” mean what you say. and have a reason for saying it that you can produce if necessary. If you do this, young John will come to realize, in the first place, that when you say "Don’t” you mean "Do not do it at all,” not just “Stop that for a moment until my back is turned;” and, in the second place, that there is a logical reason for your command.

Maclean's often makes the proud boast of being fair and unbiased, bolstering this claim by periodically publishing two simultaneous articles, one pro and one con, on some controversial issue. In my opinion, however, editorials such as that on the C. N. R. in your April 1 issue do much to disprove that boast, for they represent not the dispassionate effort of the seeker after truth but rather the partisan arguments of a debater anxious only to win a victory for his side.

MANY young marrieds, hosts of business girls and vast numbers of small families, eat their meals in dinettes from tables just big enough to accommodate the individual covers, salts and peppers, relishes and the like. There’s no room for an array of platters, vegetable dishes or serving equipment on a large scale, and half the time there isn’t space to store such luxuries between meals.
