AS THIS issue of Maclean's goes to press there is on every hand evidence of more public buoyancy than we have observed for some weeks. The reason is the prompt action taken by the Royal Navy to prevent France’s ships of war falling into Nazi hands.

ALSO AS this is written there is every indication that a furious concentrated attack on Britain will not be long in coming. Enemy air raids are increasing in scope and intensity. Night after night, more and more people are spending hours from midnight to dawn in shelters and cellars.

IN APPRAISING the action of Henry Ford in refusing to manufacture in his United States factory airplane engines for the British Government, care should be taken to give the Canadian Ford Company a square deal. Ever since war was declared, the president of that organization, Wallace R. Campbell, has worked tooth and nail in furthering the British and Canadian war efforts.

HAMISH, the composing-room messenger, was in a few minutes ago, and we asked him if he remembered what his ambitions were at the age of twelve. Hamish did remember. He remembered very well. He wanted to be both a mounted policeman and a professional hockey player.

THEY SAT on folding chairs, and the stage was drafty. The overhead light glared. The author and the director hunched over an old kitchen table crossing out the last scene in act two and writing in a build-up bit for Lili. Lili Randolph took a glass of water from her maid and three aspirin tablets.

LONDON, July 8. (By cable)—Before this war began, it was the custom to say that, if it came, it would be the end of civilization. It was an easy, resounding prophecy, and it always impressed those who heard it. Now that war has come, I am not so sure about civilization's end.

JUST AT dawn on the bleak morning of September 1, 1939, four troubled men ran up the long flight of stone steps to the State Department building in Washington. Across the street, in the White House, a fifth man, lying in his bed, had been talking by telephone to his ambassador in Paris, and learned that the Germans were invading Poland.

SCOTTSVILLE is one of those scenic treasures that Nova Scotia hides away in special holes and corners for the curious to find. The shore road brings you in from the west, and you tramp over the brow of the steep ridge and behold the village at your feet; and there is a long lagoon running back into the land, dotted with little green islands and a white flutter of terns, and the cobblestone beach, drawn in a fine mathematical curve, that guards the calm lagoon from the long green rollers of the North Atlantic, and the road running on across that beach and draping the green shoulder of the ridge on the far side with a steep yellow ribbon.

MY IDEA of a response to the injunction was nine o'clock, and I made it. On the way from my couch to the old roll-top, I took a look at a couple of newspapers. It was announced, in a statement by Q. T. Brill himself, that the theatre would be closed for several nights.

LORD TWEEDSMUIR
THE UNITED STATES is the richest and, both actually and potentially, the most powerful state on the globe. She has much, I believe, to give to the world; indeed, to her hands is chiefly entrusted the shaping of the future. If democracy in the broadest and truest sense is to survive, it will be mainly because of her guardianship.

IF CHANGING cactus plants into apple trees is a task demanding magic powers, there are a lot of magicians in overalls and rubber boots plodding around British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. They use a hoe for a wand, a generous supply of plain water in place of a magic elixir, but they get results just the same.

WHEN THE management of New York’s Carnegie Hall a few years ago invited Paul Whiteman to give a concert of “symphonic jazz,” the dyed-inthe-wool symphony lovers raised their hands in horror. Jazz in Carnegie Hall! A desecration! But Paul Whiteman’s concert was a big success.

HENRY ASHBERY
The Arab countries have passed from the horse to the airplane, having entirely missed the era of roads and motor cars. ★ Heat and light can traverse a vacuum, as in the case of an electric lamp bulb; but sound does not traverse a vacuum. Liquids and solids are better carriers of sound than air.

Text of a propaganda leaflet picked up by a Canadian soldier in France, in the fall of 1918. Peace in Sight Austria-Hungary has proposed to enter into negotiations of peace. Germany, Bulgaria, and Turkey have no objection to it. Peace is close at hand ! Peace before winter ! Peace, the yearning of all nations ! It now depends upon the Allied governments whether peace shall be realized or the sufferings of the tortured nations are to continue.

On the Target—A certain dear old lady made it her duty to visit the patients of the local hospital. On one occasion she went up to a much bandaged individual who was sitting up in bed, and after a little preliminary talk said to him very sympathetically: “I suppose your wife must miss you a great deal?” “No, mum,” came the prompt reply; “she’s got a wonderful aim for a woman.”
