ONE of these days our secretary is going to come in looking rather anxious. She is going to say, “James Francis Dwyer is waiting to see you, and Oh. Mr. Moore, he’s got with him the weirdest looking creature!” Mr. Dwyer and Whateveritis will be ushered in. Mr. Dwyer will drop a manuscript on the desk and say, “This is a little story about Mars.

FOLLOWING a debate, students of Aurora (Ontario) High School voted that Canada would fare better if independent of the British Empire. We are not worrying unduly about this. We once won a debate by proving that the execution of Charles I was not justified.

ARADIO enthusiast informs us that within a few years broadcasting developments and television will knock all printed matter into a cocked hat, and that in time few people will have the habit of reading. We prefer the opinion of Archbishop Downey of Liverpool, not merely because he is an archbishop, but because what he said in a recent speech is irrefutable.

JAMES FRANCIS DWYER
WHEN THEY reached the small strange village that they had chosen as a starting point for their walking trip, they were oddly nervous. The afternoon had been a hungry mouth that sucked the courage out of them in a queer manner. The joy of adventure that had romped within them like an unloosed hound when they left Paris was now a whimpering thing in a dark corner of each heart.

CAPTAIN C. TWEEDALE
IT WAS not until I read in a recent issue of the Vancouver Province of the death of the oldest member of the “Barr Colony” that I was inspired to make my debut into journalism. As a member of this famous colony, a flood of old memories came to my mind, and I think a brief account of some of our trials and adventures would be of interest to others.

A POLITICIAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
CANADA’S Parliament evidently has not heard of the challenge to democracy. Only that can explain its demonstration, made over the past three months, that democracy can be thoroughly inefficient. Meeting on January 27, the House has gone into May with no consequence other than a voluminous Hansard.

THE WEATHER was changing. At first the only sign of the change was a wide pale halo around the sun. Later a milky film spread across the sky. The halo contracted, choked the sun, dimmed it, and the deep blue of the Gulf Stream became a drab, whiteflecked grey.

EXAMINATIONS can be fun. Give yourself this novel one, and see. Nobody, least of all the compiler of these questions, will stand at your elbow, gloating over your occasional puzzlement. Ability to answer them proves nothing whatever; but if you play fair, you’ll have a useful check on your general literary knowledge.

THE THEATRE of Westminster is a place where the lights are never dimmed. The play of personalities, the swiftly changing human values, the seizing and fumbling of opportunities, the hopes and heartbreaks of the ambitious, the triumphs of the plodder or the collapse of the brilliant—it goes on year after year, the nonstop drama of British politics.

IN THIS free country, every man, woman and child has the right to buy as many golf clubs as his or her heart de sires, providing they can pay for them. But they can no longer use more than fourteen of them in competitive play. This new fourteen-club ruling, which has been adopted by both the Royal Canadian and United States Golf Associations and which went into effect last January, has not been received quietly by golfers on this side of the Atlantic.

ARCHIBALD DOUGLAS TURNBULL
MY DEAR Mr. Baxter: Your London Letter in Maclean’s of March 15 is profoundly interesting. It is an excellent example of a case in which fundamental agreement with the argument is more stimulating to thought than disagreement would be. There is much truth in your contention that the United States owes a great intangible debt to Britain, and that “a payment on the debt at this time” might be a real help toward preserving world peace.

IN PARADE (London), some facts regarding the manner in which future Fuehrers are trained in Germany, are given: Germany realizes full well that leaders must be trained. To this end it is preparing its youth. While democratic countries are spending a great deal of time and money on special education for the backward, Germany is making a very special effort to select and train its future leaders.

Post Office Bay, in one of the Galapagos Islands, is the unofficial mail station for the Pacific Ocean. The place was named in whaling days. Here, in a barrel set up on a post, whalemen would come to look for letters from home brought out by ships that had sailed after their own departure, or to leave letters in the hope that they would be picked up by a homeward bounder.

“I am 39 years of age.” a woman writes, “Yet some days I have been feeling and looking 100 years old. I would get fits of exhaustion for no good reason at all. I was not fit to live with because I would be so cross and touchy. I did not seem to have any ambition to do my housework, and I was tired all the time.

Enjoy Good Health this Easy Way

You can virtually eat your way to good health—or you can “dig your grave with your teeth”. It depends on your food. Many modern foods cause constipation, fermentation, putrefaction—with resultant ill-effects on your system. The safe and sane way to gain and keep good health is by proper food habits rather than by “taking doses”.

An editorial in your March 15 issue states that Canadian silver fox has declined in popularity because Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth favors beige fox color. I fear, sir, that you have been misinformed. The popularity of Canadian silver fox has not declined.

EVAN PARRY, F.R.A.I.C.
WITH THE thought of opening up the summer cottage comes doubt as to whether you can afford to make it more convenient. What are the things you would like to do? Why not make a schedule of them? Possibly some could be tackled over a week-end; others as inclination and opportunity arise.

Better Potatoes
Constant Experimenting Is Carried On in Order to Improve Common Vegetable

IN THE United States, constant efforts to breed better potatoes and cook them in better ways are being made, according to the New York Times Magazine. Part of an article in this publication reads: The ideal the breeders seek is a potato which is smooth and shallow-eyed to minimize waste in its paring, a potato of large productive yield under varied climatic and cultural conditions, one of maximum nutritional value.

WITH the world becoming more precarious and feverish all the time, the number of people who would like to “get away from it all,” is constantly increasing, according to Desmond Holdridge in the American Mercury. He himself tried it, and this is what he has to say: The escape dream is always the same, whether it be that of a taxi-driver or an investment banker.

YOUNG couples about to listen to their own wedding bells are properly grateful for any gift received. But being as sensible as they are romantic—-they have to be in this year of grace and recession—what they are really hoping you will send them is something practical.

No. 7: Teach your son to take the rough with the smooth

TERENCE CRONYN
DEAR JOHN: There has come into existence a slang expression which is used to describe a person’s ability to stand up under fire. A person who can do this is said to be able to “take it.” I feel, with you, that this saying has little to commend it as an expression, either euphonically or from the point of view of correct usage.

TOM SAWYER," which could easily have been ruined by inept handling, plus the hazards of technicolor and child acting, survives wonderfully in its present version. Norman Taurog directed it; and the Taurog method, a remarkably successful one, seems to be to hand out the material to his youngsters and let them do their own acting.

Getting Better—The world must be improving.

Traveller in Need—The big railroad terminal was crowded when a shabby individual approached a wicket and peered enquiringly at the young woman on duty behind it. “Excuse me, miss,” he apologized, “but do you represent the Travellers’ Aid Society?”
