National Service BECAUSE Maclean's attacked the Bren gun contract and the business methods of the Department of Defense, a few critics have professed a belief that our object was to obstruct Canada’s armament program. We have even been called unpatriotic.

BEN AMES WILLIAMS
THE SUN would rise in a minute now. She and a boy named Potty Welsh—Potty did not matter in the least—were walking home across the Gardens to her studio apartment on the Hill. They had danced till an hour ago, then stopped at Jane Cabot’s for an apple and a glass of sauterne; and Robin felt light and ethereal and immensely well and happy.

H. H. ROXBOROUGH
IF YOU were asked to select the best hockey team in the world, what team would you choose? Would you look over the clubs in the National Hockey League and nominate the one in sixth place? Would you name a team that had won only eleven games in forty-eight played, that had scored fewer goals than any other, that ranked seventh defensively, and was coached by a former referee who had never played hockey and was tutoring his first professional team? Not likely.

ROLAND PERTWEE
IN THE bosoms of many married women who have borne no children, the desire for romance shows a tendency to flourish rather than to wither. The same may not be said of husbands, for the rapidity with which they abandon the search for glamour and devote their energies to the more practical if less enchanting pursuit of increasing their banking accounts, or reducing their handicaps at golf, is one of the tragedies wives are compelled to endure.

CANADA enjoys a Christian civilization. For this reason, euthanasia the permitting of "mercy deaths," as the term is popularly understood stands little chance of being legalized, for several decades at least. Painless death, il deliberately inflicted, even upon sufferers from painful and incurable diseases, is abhorrent to our Christian consciences.

STRANGE THINGS are taking place over here in politics. Like most important developments in Britain, they just happen. They are duly dealt with, and it is not until after it all is over that the country realizes that a minor revolution has been accomplished.

I've got about as much chance of getting her now as as you have.” The hoptoad, an outsize in hoptoads, and a feature of Bermuda not mentioned in the colorful folders which lure visitors to that coral strand, looked at him with loathing, apparently decided against him, and hopped ponderously and squashily away.

I HOPE,” said the girl with a little laugh as Hicks ushered her into the living room, “I’ve come to the right place.” “So do I,” Kent Power replied—for she satisfied. She was tall and moved serenely; she had lovely eyes that saw through you without annoying you about it; she had a figure with just the ripeness of September apples—and the sort of skirts around which children could cling.

TOBACCO MEN call it the New Belt, or, more fancifully, New Virginia. Most of its prolific acreage lies within the boundaries of the county of Norfolk, Ontario, but it spills over into the adjoining territories of Oxford, Elgin and Brant. Its southern limit is approximately the centre section of Ontario's Lake Erie shore line.

HENRY ASHBERY
Herbs are the oldest form of medicine. The word “drug” is derived from an Anglo-Saxon word, “dregon,” meaning “to dry,” in reference to dried herbs—the first drugs. Centuries later the Arabians made medicinal herbs more palatable by concocting them into various forms of syrups.

Triplet Calves THE only known triplet calves in Canada are owned by William Brydges, of Morris Township, near Wingham, Ontario. Their mother was a cow of common Durham stock, twelve years old. At birth their weight was forty-five pounds each, but at the age of seven months—in the early fall of 1938—their average weight was over 500 pounds.
