UNLESS Adolf Hitler dives off the deep end, Canada will have an election this fall. In “Backstage at Ottawa,” on page eight of this issue, Maclean's political correspondent declares that the campaign will be a bitter one; that in an election, as in love and war, all is fair, and that we had better prepare for the worst.

GEOFFREY HOMES
OLD JUDGE MURRAY found the birdman’s body. He was hurrying through the courthouse park that hot summer morning, and when he came around the fountain, there it was, lying in four feet of water. The judge stood in the shadow of the courthouse looking at the body, and the feeling of well-being that had been his, vanished.

TAKE IT from Prime Minister Mackenzie King (he may have changed his mind by August 8 when they banquet him in Toronto), the question of whether Canada is to have an election this fall is in the hands of Adolf Hitler. If the Fuehrer decides to act tough over Danzig, or threatens to act tough over something else or some other place, the election won’t be held.

WHENEVER I think of the two Pennys I see them as they looked that night, the night Cora announced her engagement to Bruce Emory. They stood together on the screened porch, greeting the guests; that is, Cora greeted them and Diana stood dark and indifferent beside her.

THE SHIP was pushing steadily through the solid blackness of a night as stifling and oppressive as only a night in the doldrums can be. It was time for me to turn in; but I stood in my pyjamas outside my cabin door and eyed that ovenlike interior with loathing.

SOMEBODY asks about the authors I have known. I fish in the ragbag of an old woman’s memory for scraps of literary gossip. From the time I was old enough to be trusted not to interrupt. I was always present when there were distinguished guests at our house.

MARY AGNES PEASE
THE NAME “Quebec” leads our minds “to romance, to legend, to high adventure: to deeds and dreams.” Heroic memories cluster about thisoldest province of Canada, which was discovered by Jacques Cartier, the Pilot of St. Malo, in 1535. But Cartier did not realize the value of his discovery, and returned to France after two visits to the new land.

FOR SOME reason or other —probably just natural cussedness — we feel a warm glow of fellowship toward the former officer of the Royal Navy, now a resident of Vancouver, who nourishes in his bosom a special and particular dislike for a certain type of self-seeking officeholder.
