AT THE moment, we have a very kindly feeling toward M. H. Halton, the London correspondent of the Toronto Daily Star. Home on a visit, Mr. Halton has heen out in Alberta recording impressions gained through eyes which, for some years, have been focused upon the larger panorama of affairs in the Empire’s capital.

IN ITS September 1 issue, Maclean's Magazine published an article headed “Canada’s Armament Mystery,” written by LieutenantColonel George A. Drew. In that article, Colonel Drew made a critical analysis of the contract made by the Canadian Government with the firm of John Inglis Company, Toronto, for the manufacture of Bren machine guns, and set forth a series of questions which, in the public interest, he declared should be satisfactorily answered.

THE FIRST time Hank met her family, they all had a grand time. But, of course, that was only a sort of dress rehearsal for the real event. As soon as you heard her name you knew about her family, a household word, a billboard embellisher, a dividend bestower from ’way back.

AFHER YEARS of differences over the proper management of Canadian football—years in which the East-West pigskin feud was fought just as fiercely in Eastern committee rooms on a frozen gridiron in mid-December—the Canadian Rugby Union declared a truce in the prolonged hostilities, and is now optimistically looking ahead to the time when Eastern and Western playing rules will be uniform.

IT WON'T be long now, Mr. Football Fan. The young men with the big shoulders and the sprung knees have been banging each other around for a month or more in the tough pre-season training grind. They're all ready to go. But perhaps you haven't kept pace with them and have just begun to wonder how the teams will shape up this year, who will play for who, and if the East and West are any closer to settling their arguments.

GEORGE EDWARD ALLEN
SO THIS was Burma, Walter Granger thought as he walked down the gangplank. Although he was not in his best spirits—the shortsightedness and lack of appreciation and general shrewishness of a girl named Vivian Smith had deprived him of the best surgical nurse that had ever handed him a sponge—he decided he could take it in his stride.

THIS IS the story of four men in a boat; of four prairie landlubbers who reached for the moon—and got it! It happened at St. Catharines, Ontario, this summer, as oarsmen from Canada and the United States got together on the old Welland Canal to decide the 1938 Dominion rowing championships at the Canadian Henley.

Stalin's Bloody Record is Said to Surpass That of Any Previous Russian Ruler

THAT Stalin is a far more tyrannical Czar than any of Russia’s previous rulers, is the contention of William Henry Chamberlain in The American Mercury. He states: When the Soviet satrap in Petrograd, Moses Uritzky, in 1918 was shot by a Socialist-Revolutionary on the same day another Socialist-Revolutionary wounded Lenin in Moscow, over 500 persons, none of whom had anything to do with the attacks, were taken out of the Petrograd prisons and massacred.

AN EFFORT to produce a breed of sheep that will bear twin lambs instead of just one and thus create additional wealth for farmers, was begun by the late Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, and is still being carried on with an excellent prospect of success, according to an article by J. D. Ratcliff in This Week, reprinted by The Reader's Digest.

The cheetah, or hunting leopard, is the fastest animal in the world over a short distance. It is the only wild beast which can be said to become absolutely tame. A hunting leopard (as they are called in Africa) will follow you like a dog; it lies on the sofa and purrs like a cat when you come near.

SIR WILFRID LAURIER was born in St. Lin, P.Q., in 1841, and at the age of six began to attend the village school pictured above. The school was owned and managed at the time by two ladies who in later years became ardent Laurier admirers; and when they were forced in their old age to sell the building they made preservation of the distinguishing steeple an official clause in the notarial deed.

IT'S OPEN season all the year round for all kinds of fish. Referring, of course, to the sport of eating them. Most housekeepers, anyway, are more interested in the flavor than in the gaminess of a fish. They don't care who catches it, nor how many big ones got away in the process.

THE astonishing thing about “Marie Antoinette” is that, though it runs a full two hours and a half and is weighted down with over two million dollars worth of production, it is wonderfully absorbing to watch almost all of the time. Admitting that “Marie Antoinette” might have been even better with more cutting and fewer crystal chandeliers, it’s still worth two hours and a half of anybody’s time.
