ADVENT of the 1940 summer tourist season will give civilian Canadians a unique opportunity to help their country’s war effort by keeping the guest fires burning. Advance enquiries coming to travel agencies indicate that this year’s influx of visitors from the United States may assume very large proportions.

IF BY any chance you are looking for a little sleuthing set to swing time, we suggest you turn to page seven where the curtain is going up on the first installment of “Murder Off Stage,” a new mystery serial by Gavin Holt. It seems that there’s trouble backstage at the Imperial Theatre where Dex Gorey, the Swing King, and his Rhumbadors are making their London debut.

GAVIN HOLT
WHEN I took Millie out to dinner, the fact that Dex Gorey and his band were going to open at the Imperial Theatre that evening didn’t mean a thing to me. I had seen announcements of the event in the newspapers, of course: I might have noticed the name of Dex Gorey on certain billboards.

CHARLES LUGRIN SHAW
THE MAN whose trench raids were a perpetual headache to the enemy in the last war is putting on his uniform again. Nearly a quarter century after his daring platoon of picked men from the old Seventh Battalion, C.E.F., camouflaged themselves one dark night and staged the exploit that revolutionized the whole technique of warfare in France and Belgium, Vancouver's “holy terror.”

ROSITA FORBES
A FEW YEARS ago, at the united request of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company and his Court Minister, the Shah of Persia received me at his summer palace outside Teheran. We talked about the last war. “You British made one major mistake right at the beginning, and it cost you dear,” said the soldier who had seized and restored the Peacock Throne with no other right than the will of his fighting Cossacks and his own undoubted merits.

JOHN DENNIS yawned, plopped the trout into his creel, and sank down on a boulder in the middle of the Winnetka. It was the first day of his vacation, he had taken a trout on his first cast, and he was bored. He pushed a battered hat back from his forehead, shrugged his big shoulders, and sighed like the wind in the pine trees.

THERE IS a baby industry in British Columbia that is thirty years old. It operates for only five months out of the twelve, and is nicely profitable to all concerned. Its raw material is an egg, its manufacturing plant an incubator, its finished product a day-old chick.

LONDON, April 19 (By Cable). This is a difficult article to write, but I want to write it if only to cleanse my bosom of much perilous stuff. Though it will be cabled to arrive as near publication date as possible, there will be a lapse of time in which much that I now must treat as mystery will be solved, and careful deductions possibly proved to be no more than conjecture.

I'VE GOT the new paper, George. And the strips of wood. The boy just brought them.” Margaret laid a black roll on the table from which Cook had just finished clearing away the breakfast things. Her husband answered easily, "I'll fix it for you in a frame when I come home tonight and then this never-ending blackout business won't be so much work for you as it has been.”

OLD MAN Nelson twisted wearily on his bench stool so that the last of the April sunlight, reflected in promising crimsons from the full flood of the river, would fall on his work. He had to finish that work. Tonight. And there wasn’t even a full lantern in the shed by the river, so saving they had had to be lately.

Life in Wartime Britain
Canadians may find a hint of what is to come in this picture of the effect of war on the average British family

FREDERICK EDWARDS
CANADIANS, as a whole, seem to maintain a complacently tranquil attitude toward the war with Germany. It is not at all certain that this is a good thing. So far, because the fighting is three thousand miles across the Atlantic from our shores, and up to time of writing our own men have not been actively engaged in it except as individuals, we have felt its effects only in a trifling degree.

IT IS NOT generally realized, states The Empire Review, that there is more than one British Navy. Many people were surprised to learn that H.M.S. Achilles, doughty little hunter of the Graf Spee, was a New Zealand ship. But Canada, Australia and India possess navies of their own, in addition to New Zealand, and South Africa has taken over the defense of her 1,800 miles of coast line.

THE CLOTHES worn by women today are far less exciting, far less romantic, than those of the past, states Elizabeth R. Duval in New York Times Magazine. Continuing, she says: Men, particularly those who graduated to long pants around 1900, say that women today are about as inspiring to the imagination as an umbrella stand, that they wear clownish hats and expose the least beautiful parts of their bodies, for example the knee or the midriff, and that the revealing lines of the current clothes deprive the female of all mystery and feminine charm.

WALKING to his city hall office in Saint John, New Brunswick, that summer morning, Mayor “Jimmy” Brittain felt his usual good-natured self. A sweet, cool breeze wafted in off the Bay of Fundy, and the sun danced on the harbor’s ruffled waters; the new tax rate was six months off and the next civic election a couple of years. . . .

THE Alligator was the first boat to tuck up its fins (side wheels) and climb onto and across the land. In the Ontario north country where the numerous small lakes and rocky streams made the moving of the logs so difficult, the lumberman needed a boat to handle the raft of logs across the lakes; but this boat could not go down the small rivers, which are full of rapids.

HENRY ASHBERY
In Iceland, a boy’s “surname” is invariably the first name of his father, with the word “son” added—thus a son of Olaf Jonsson whose first name is Sigurdur will have Sigurdur Olafsson for his full name; his grandson Jon would be Jon Sigurdsson.

VANCOUVER’S new city hall cost one million dollars,” said Mr. L. A. Hamilton, pointing to the photograph. “Ours cost fifty cents. In 1886 the city hall had burned down. As senior councillor, I had to provide a temporary one. So I had a tent pitched, got some kitchen chairs and tables, painted ‘City Hall’ on a sign and nailed it up.

In your article, “Home Front Preparedness,” C. W. Peterson says, “The general price level fixes the valuation under which exchange is made.” Today that price level is manifestly out of line as between producer and consumer costs. This can and should be adjusted, as Mr. Peterson says, through an elastic economy.

IT’S ONE of life’s darkest moments, when your husband leans back after dinner and begins to rave about his mother’s rice pudding. That, after you’ve whipped up your flossiest dessert and he’s done pretty well by it! Now you can deal with the situation in different ways; you may bear it in silence, or tell him plump and plain what you think of him.

ONE OF June’s fruits—the cherry— begins its march of triumph in the spring when it displays its lovely blossoms to an admiring world. Later the trees give us brilliant fruit—small red cherries, with their characteristic tart flavor, the sweeter white cherries and the meaty, delicately flavored “black” or oxheart cherries, just right for eating.

JUST north of the village of Norwich in Oxford County, Ontario, stands the “Old Brick,” the Quaker Church which was built some ninety years ago by the Society of Friends. The first families of this faith arrived in the Norwich district in 1808, and possibly came from Dutchess County, New York State.

ULTRALOYAL Canadians who occasionally may by heard complaining that we are not taking the war seriously enough, are urged to consider the case of Victoria, B.C., where the constabulary are putting up with no nonsense. One of our agents residing in the lovely Pacific Coast city submits a brace of clippings from the Victoria Colonist to support the claim that the local police are “playing a splendid part in war work.”
