SINCE 1918, each November Eleventh at the eleventh hour, the Empire has stood bowed in silence to revere the memory of those who died in what was thought to be a War to End Wars. In the past, we have referred to November Eleventh as Armistice Day, not knowing how truly we spoke.

THE snapshot reproduced above shows our London correspondent, Beverley Baxter, as he was twenty-two years ago. It was supplied by R. Leighton Foster, K.C., of Toronto, who informs us that Baxter and he were junior officers together in C. E. Signals and lived in the same bunkhouse at Seaford Camp during the winter of 1917-18.

JOHN QUAIL
IT’S WINTER. It’s my eighteenth birthday, and here I am on the pike, wavin’ my thumb at the world. I got a lump in my throat big as the pack on my back. A big black car comes blattin’ down the road. He’s half a mile away when I hail him. He passes me, but he’s slowing.

A. Beverley Baxter's
I AM writing this on the seventh Sunday morning of the war. A late October sun sheds a kindly glow upon the melancholy of my garden, where fallen leaves try to cover the last dying flowers of summer. In an almost Mediterranean sky, gleaming defense balloons (now universally known as “Inskips,” because of their alleged similarity to the Lord Chancellor) keep watch and ward over London Town.

PAPINEAU rang the doorbell, and then he and Kent Power hunched their raincoats against the drizzle that sloped down out of the hot July night. When no one answered, he continued to ring—and no one continued to answer. “We shall look at the window, non?” “Okay.

M. GRATTAN O’LEARY
TO THE military world he is Major-General A. G. L. McNaughton, C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O.; Commander of the First Canadian Division; Commander-elect of any Corps that will take the Maple Leaf to the second World War. To his friends he is just “Andy,” a gallant, engaging, companionable figure, as unlike a Prussian militarist as sunshine is unlike shadow; a simple, unassuming, kindly man who is a civilian and a democrat to the core of him, hating fuss and feathers and gold and glitter, taking his recreation by building for his children the latest in mechanical toys.

FRANK RICHARDSON PIERCE
PRIVATELY the newspaper lads and lassies spoek of Sally Hughes as a spoiled brat, but in their writings the season’s number one glamour girl was modest, sweet, unspoiled, democratic, brilliant, lovely and a lot of other things. A male reporter liked the natural wave in her hair on moist evenings and he had also detected more than a little of the devil in her large blue eyes.

FREDERICK EDWARDS
JUST ABOUT the time this issue of Maclean's Magazine comes into your hands, the Canadian Red Cross Society will launch a national campaign to raise a $3,000,000 war chest. The odds are the Red Cross will get the money, and a trifle over. Three millions are a lot of dollars, especially when drawn from a population of eleven million men, women and children.

THE OLD car chugged down a narrow mountain road. The driver looked down over the sheer, unguarded edge at the valley far below. Around dangerous curves, down steep grades, he steered with familiar unconcern. When the car reached level country at the foot of the mountain, the driver slowed down to turn in at a lane.

A LIGHT breeze blows over the bay. Atop a tall standard a wind-puffed cone lolls lazily. Motors roar; four huge propellers spin in unison. A great flying boat moves swiftly over the water. It picks up speed; now it lifts its nose, hovers, climbs steadily and then drums off toward the east.

Fish almost rival coal for variety of byproducts. The offal from first-class “eating" fish is converted into isinglass, glues and ink. From the livers of dogfish, cod and halibut, oil is extracted which is rich in vitamins. Large quantities of good quality fish are sent to fish-meal factories, where they are converted into feeding stuffs for pigs and chickens.

Much as I have admired Beverley Baxter, I must agree with W. S. MacLeod that we have had about enough of him and a new correspondent would be welcome. —John Smith, Port Coquitlam, B.C. It is just too bad about Mr. MacLeod’s overwrought soul. If he doesn’t want to read B.B.’s. articles, why not pass them up? B.B.’s are the first articles I read in your magazine, and many of my friends do the same.
