"Incomepoops" IT IS remarkable how, in the months preceding an election, edifices decay, post offices become inadequate, rivers and small harbors fill up and wharves collapse. So it becomes necessary that governments, just before elections, are compelled to spend millions of dollars on replacing buildings, dredging rivers and small harbors, and building wharves.

AN EDMONTON Schoolteacher, by name Macdonald, while marking Grade IX Social Studies papers, came across a brace of howlers which were relayed to us without a second’s delay. One question asked was, “Who is the author of the Appeasement Policy?” Three children answered, “Beverley Baxter.”

THE MAN and the girl were kept waiting for a little while, in the pleasant library to which a maid had shown them. They sat on the edge of a chintz-covered couch and looked around. It was a charming room, lit by the full brilliance of an autumn afternoon, and it was part of a charming, rambling house.

THE BIG dinner party for Mr. King over (and without benefit of “Mitch”), the Government still wonders whether it will have to face Hitler or the polls. Judging from tales that come, it has about as much relish for the last as for the first. And small wonder.

AUSTRALIA is preparing for war. Without in the least wishing conflict, with every desire to maintain peace, the Commonwealth, supported by an unshakable determination to resist aggression, is strengthening land, sea and air forces, mobilizing men and women and industry in readiness to meet any threat from any source.

ROD BEDFORD clenched his teeth together. Carefully he lifted the dishpan half full of swashing, greasy water. He avoided looking at it as much as possible, and with feet wide apart and elbows fending off bulkheads and obstructions he started aft out of the galley.

CANADA has sent, for the past few years, her best tennis stars to Scotland. England and Forest Hills, as well as into the Davis Cup competition. The result-one win. That was by Bobby Murray when he captured the Scottish Singles title in 1935. Otherwise, we might better have saved ourselves the trouble.

THREE MILES north of the pretty little Ontario town of Barrie, on Highway No. 27, there is a hill. I drive over that hill periodically, and when I come to the brow of it, always I slow down, and often I stop and look northwestward over the plain below —dark green with young growing pine trees stretching away till it falls to the ravine where flows the Willow Creek, and up again to the low hills beyond.

IT IS settled, then,” said Claude Corbeil. “This winter I cook for the Saint Monique Lumber Company.” Homer Philion went limp with relief. His brain reeled with the intoxication of triumph. He wanted to rush out and turn handsprings in the road, shout the news to all Montville, telephone the tidings to President M. J. Flanagan of the Saint Monique Lumber Company, inform the pretty Widow Picard of his success . . .

There are a hundred of them, and if you can answer seventy of them correctly or satisfactorily, we applaud your mental powers ; if your score is over eighty, we take off our hat to you;over ninety, and we’ll gladly make you a sweeping bow.
