THOSE who know the full history of the First Great War know that in its early stages Great Britain narrowly escaped military disaster on the Western front. Catastrophe was averted only by the heroism of the British Tommies and officers in the field.

In the vital interest of the British connection can we not have a brief respite from B. Baxter? Please, please. There must be at least a dozen competent Canadian observers in Britain, so why not give us a change? His High Tory sales talk has long ago passed the accepted limits of conventional boredom, and I, for one, am fast reaching that odd frame of mind engendered in the most patient and peaceloving under strain, where the only solution would seem to lie in some such plan as immersing Mr. B. and his British Tories for 48 hours in 30 feet of water.

CONSTANCE REYNOLDS
THE MAN in the black overcoat who sat in the rear seat with his wife, was indignant all the way from the railway station. They had been travelling in a first-class compartment, but that didn’t make any difference. The pair of them had been taken off the train at the border just as summarily as had Isaac Moss and myself, in our second-class estate.

NOT THE least hard thing to do in Ottawa these days is to keep on seeing the forest despite the trees. Many, judging by confused advice and criticism, are seeing only the trees. Let’s take a look at the forest. Prime Minister King, to begin with, has been doing a fair war job.

GRANT DEXTER
HOW can I serve? To whom should I offer my services? Since the moment war broke out thousands of Canadians have addressed these questions to Ottawa. Rich men and poor men, business leaders, clerks, stenographets and unemployed. Never in this country's history has there been so great and widespread an upsurge of patriotism.

CAPTAIN KERRY had been playing second fiddle to old men all his life. He had started as cabin boy. At forty-four he had thirty years of faithful service with the Green Star Line behind him—and now this! His first command— and his last—until more old men died or were retired.

Britain's First Soldier

A. Beverley Baxter, M.P.
ARMISTICE DAY, November 11, 1918. Hundreds of thousands of us who had been soldiers for the duration alternately cheered with excitement and felt a sinking feeling in the stomach. What would we do now in the peace that stared us in the face? Among the men who faced this problem was Viscount Gort of the Guards, known for some mysterious reason by all ranks as “Fat Boy” Gort.

SOME OF the new season models are so unlike their antecedents that to identify them at sight one must first look at their name plates. Others outwardly resemble their immediate precursors. But two innovations that will be widely publicized and that have been all but universally adopted as standard equipment for 1940 models are sealed beam headlights and much improved safety glass.

WOULD THAT be a slip horn you have there?” Henry Whitman ceased the contemplation of his feet and looked up at the bleary individual who stood uncertainly before him. reddish of face and unshaven. The man's eyes were glittering, and his hair was black and mussed.

LINK BY LINK, two long chains of highway have been forged across the Canadian provinces—eastward from Vancouver, westward from Halifax. As yet those two mighty chains of road that wind through towns and cities of the Dominion, across prairies, through forests and mountains, have not been fused into one.

DEATH IS retreating from the highways along the Canadian front. Public education is the spearhead of the attack that is gathering momentum. Closer traffic supervision, stricter law enforcement and a stouter car chassis are aligned in support.

MARY AGNES PEASE
THE Province of Saskatchewan lies snug in the heart of the Dominion, and bears the name given by the Cree Indians to a river which was their main highway, and near which they reared their tepees. They called this body of water Kisiskalchewan, which means a rushing river or swift current.

The quietness following a fall of snow is a commonplace experience. The measurements of the sound absorption of snow have been published for the first time by the National Physical Laboratory of England. Freshly fallen snow is highly absorbent, its effectiveness being equalled by few known materials of corresponding thickness.

THE PART women can play in national affairs was never more important than it is now. Canadian women are not called upon to fight in the front lines, but in other fields there is a job for everyone. And regardless of outside duties, the main concern of the woman with a home to manage is that her family shall be adequately cared for, even though the budget may need to be adapted to a scale consistent with national economy.

THE Church of the Good Thief. Portsmouth, Ontario, only one of its name in the world, was christened by the then Archbishop of Kingston, Jacob Vincent Cleary, in 1892. From its hilltop site in Canada’s chief penitentiary town, which is a suburb of Kingston, the church looks out over the broad acres that mark the Collins Bay Division of Kingston Penitentiary, and down on the frowning battlements and dome of the penitentiary proper.

A Poolish Argument—I couldn’t become a cow and pool painter. I have known artists who learned to paint a cow and a pool, and who continued to paint a cow and a pool. They became the best cow and pool painters in the world, and they remained cow and pool painters to the end!—Rockwell Kent, U.S. artist.
