THE Right Honorable Arthur Meighen, at a meeting of the Empire Club of Toronto, called attention to the thousands of German people who live in Canada, and who listen to Nazi propaganda broadcast from Germany in their native tongue. They cannot be expected to view events as do Canadians of British or French descent.

MORE than 3,000 of the Canadians who enlisted in the war of 1914-1918 died of tuberculosis. Ten per cent of them saw service in Canada only. More than 4,500 veterans are now on pension for tuberculosis attributed to war service. Rough calculation can be made of the cost to the Dominion of tuberculosis in the army.

ONE OF the interesting—and sometimes surprising—things about running a magazine is that the editor, who reads all material at the time of purchase, will discover when an issue is assembled that by accident a certain theme or thread runs all the way through it.

HENRY ASHBERY
The world’s largest slate mine is in Merionethshire, Wales. This mine has been in continuance for 135 years. Before that it was a quarry for another 200 years. The blue-grey slates go to all parts of the world. They are known by the gradations of the peerage.

AUSTEN first saw him at the Col Bleu on a boat night. “There’s a good man to keep away from. He’ll stick around as long as anybody'll buy him a drink, and tell you about some island he claims he discovered years ago. It’s an obsession.” “And there isn’t any such place?” asked Austen.

UP AND DOWN the ice at the training-camp rink Sped the hockey players. Professionals, bigtimers, major league stars, getting in shape for a long winter season ahead. They swooped and darted; the puck clicked from stick to stick, zipped through the air and thudded against the boards.

GRANT DEXTER
SINCE September 10, the Government at Ottawa has strained every nerve to transform this country from a democracy at peace into a democracy at war. Drastic steps, without precedent in 1914-18, have been taken. Governmental machinery of peace was useless for purposes of war.

STEVE NOLAN got his first advertising job after thirteen months of trying. At eleven o’clock that night he teetered on his heels at Times Square and puffed complacently at a twenty-five-cent cigar. “You’re a copywriter, son.” Steve said, half aloud, “and tomorrow you go on a fish diet.

WHEN Mike Chirkoski came up from underground at the end of the shift at the McIntyre, he went to the huge miners’ dry to wash up and change out of work clothes. Mike was breathing heavily. Puffing, in fact. A big man—Mike—a slab-shouldered sixfooter who looked tough and hard and healthy as Adam’s off ox.

THE GENERAL began this thing. He said he had a literary curiosity I ought to read and he lent me Roger Ascham’s “Toxophilus,” an intriguing technical treatise on shooting with the longbow, written in Elizabethan English. It is intriguing, all right! To read “Toxophilus” with understanding means that one drops everything and takes up the bow.

This knowledge is so important that I dare say we shall not get very far from the precarious position business now assumes until the steps are thoroughly understood and appreciated by the owners of business.

I WAS to remember Moss's words later. It almost seemed, in the light of subsequent events, that he had felt all along that certain of us were marked for tragedy; that, for all of us, that sojourn at the Silver Goose would represent a cataclysmic upheaval which would leave us changed for the remainder of our lives.

CHIEF AMONG the delights of the old-time circus midway was the ebony gentleman who offered his woolly and durable head as à target for baseballs, thoughtfully provided at three-for-a-dime by a confrere more golden of tooth than of voice, who promised dubious-looking cigars as a reward for accuracy.

THE HIGHER cost of living may not be altogether an ill wind. It gets us back to thrifty habits, which is a good thing—fine for the soul and often quite beneficial to the menu. Those people who merely make the rounds of roasts, steaks, chops and expensive meats must find it all very nice but a bit boring at times.

Habit—A banker in a business slump got a temporary job as a gasoline station attendant, and a customer, drawing up to the pump, requested ten gallons of gas. Said the banker: “How far are you travelling?” The customer explained his journey in detail, whereupon the former banker said: “Don't you think you could get along with five?”—Moncton Transcript.

IT IS a legend often accepted that hotel clerks and managers are invariably snooty persons surveying their customers from lofty and arrogant heights, suffusing the atmosphere around them with an annoying aroma of superciliousness. We do not accept this quaint bit of folklore as true, having met many amiable and obliging gentlemen standing behind hotel counters, and we lean to the opinion that such reports are spread abroad by people who at some time or other have been made to look a bit silly in front of a hotel staff, somewhere.
