THE publicity smoke screen of “complete exoneration” emitted by the Department of Defense following the tabling of the Davis report on the Bren machine gun contract is being blown away as this issue of Maclean’s goes to press. Irrespective of their political leanings, many of the important newspapers, having studied the report, arc awakening the public to the fact that the finding of no corruption where no corruption was charged did not by any means end the matter; that the contract and the methods used in awarding it, far from being approved, were referred for judgment to “those charged with the responsibility of dealing with the facts, i.e., the Government and Parliament.”

THE YEAR I graduated from law school, Uncle Ben came home for a visit. It was an afternoon in late July, and summer sat oppressively on the tidewater village. The street of crushed oyster shell lay parallel to the wide salt river. It looked like a new-forged sword, white hot under the intense sunshine, heat waves jigging madly above it, and every passing vehicle drew from it a fine white dust which powdered the tulippoplars along its brief length.

TWENTY MEN sat around a pine-top table in a smoke-filled room, one of those rooms which anybody who has travelled in rural parts will always associate with that essentially North American institution, the small-town hotel. Dun walls were decorated with beverage advertisements, with calendars from a couple of sporting-goods houses, the contributions of a manufacturer of shotgun ammunition and the local grocer.

ON FRIDAY. January 13, there was tabled in the House of Commons the report of the Royal Commission appointed to inquire into the Bren machine gun contract between the Canadian Government and John Inglis Company, Limited, of Toronto. That inquiry arose from an article entitled “Canada’s Armament Mystery,” written by Lieutenant-Colonel George A. Drew, and published by Maclean's in its issue of September 1, 1938.

I DIDN'T know this Lane chap at all well, mind you, and in spite of that I found myself saddled with the man for the entire week-end. He was a bit of a power in the mining world, and was negotiating with my firm over some South American property that we wanted.

IT WAS hot in the ladies’ lounge. “Tropical,” Sully murmured, reddening her lips. Stuffy. Bee called it. She was a working girl and knew how to speak her mind. “Anyway,” Sully was the smaller of the two, a dryad type, “we aren’t lingering.” She said it resolutely, remembering Herman in his rented tails waiting to stumble through another dance with her.

THIS DAY was Friday, December the ninth, 1938, and Douglas Cameron was in a tough spot. Pilot Cameron, flying a transport plane on behalf of Wings, Limited, was fogbound among hills north and east of Kenora, Ontario. His fuel supply was running dangerously low, and there was ice on the surfaces of his wings.

Beverley Baxter's
AS THE New Year begins here in London, I am moved to prophecy. This time, though, it is not a particularly daring one. In other words, I prophesy that there will be a British general election some time during this year of grace 1939. My guess is that it will be earlier rather than later in the year.

'"TAXI, SIR!

Mounted on springs attached to two sets of skis is a covered-in airplane body, the open door of which blazons the name of a Senneterre hotel.

MACARONI, spaghetti and egg noodles are made from a particular kind of Canadian wheat, distinguished for the quantity and quality of its gluten. The grains are crushed to a fine granular state, mixed with liquid to form a dough, kneaded as in bread making, forced through presses which give the characteristic shape, then dried and packed to become a staple for Canadian tables.
