THE DEATH of Walter P. Chrysler took from the North American automobile industry one of the most dynamic figures in its history. His name and achievements were well known to Canadians. Not so well known is the fact that Walter P. Chrysler bore the imprint of Canada.

BENGE ATLEE
GIVEN his own choice, Kent Power would neither have lunched at the Mount Dennis Club-which was full of stuffed shirts-nor with Harry Fanshawe-who was no better than he should have been. But you go to school with a fellow, you keep running into him here and there down the years, he invites you to his club to talk business-and you don't despise him quite enough to refuse.

A. Beverley Baxter, M.P.
STRANGE things have happened in this war and are continuing to happen. Some of them are mere surface events, as if the gods were indulging in an ironic jest. Others go deep and will have their influence on the development of the world long after hostilities are over and Hitler has ceased to trouble the world.

M. GRATTAN O'LEARY
ELEVEN YEARS ago Major-General (now Lieut.General) "Andy" McNaughton, then Chief of the General Staff, decided he wanted somebody to study and report upon the defense needs of Canada. He thought of a young officer he had admired in the Great War and who had become half Battery Commander and Professor of Tactics at the Royal Military College, Kingston.

LESLIE McFARLANE
THE STORY of how Grandpaw Foglesby broke his leg has often been told in Wakeville, and if you live in Wakeville there is no sense in reading any farther, because you are probably pretty sick of hearing about Grandpaw Foglesby by now. And about his leg.

A POLITICIAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
WHO IT was who first thought of that permanent joint board of defense for Canada and the United States, nobody here knows. Mr. King, no doubt, has written it all in his famous diary, but what Mr. King writes in his diaryguarded closely in his library on the third floor of Laurier House-is probably more detailed than what he tells the press.

Part Four-Conclusion WHAT DO Canadians want most today? I am not concerned about what we wanted as a nation in the distant days of last May, before Germany invaded Holland and Belgium; nor about what we may seek to achieve in some future and happier day. What are our aims today-in this fateful late summer of 1940?

David Grieve Tuckwell.
Whilst there’s a mind responsive to brave words; Whilst there’s a heart thrills to its mother’s call; Whilst one soul lives that loves green trees and birds, Lush meadow land or laughing waterfall. Whilst yet one spot remains where free men dwell, May laugh, be gay, love, work, and live in peace; Show courage in adversity, nor tell Their woes abroad, nor seek a base release.

HENRY ASHBERY
The heads of two families in England have the right to wear their hats in the King’s presence. Both these families are jealous of this privilege and have resisted all attempts to abolish it. Over 700 years ago King John gave the Lords of Kingsale the right to remain covered in the King’s presence.

BRAVERY is mostly a matter of plain determination, and anyone can train himself to be as brave as he needs to be, states an article in Defence, The Services’ Magazine, London. We are told: The man who exposes himself recklessly in the front line is not brave, but a plain fool, who is not only throwing his own life away but is drawing the fire which may cause needless casualties among his comrades.

Your editorial re “Union Now” is what we have been waiting for. We hope for a further article, and in the meantime are studying the book by Clarence B. Streit. — W. D. Ferguson, Port Washington, B.C.

W. D. DODD
SPANIARDS, Italians, Walloons, Germans, Flemings and "Fugitive English," crowded French and Netherlands channel ports (one of them Dunkirk) just 352 years ago, itching to get at England's throat, and waiting for the Spanish Armada to come and relieve the blockaded ports and convoy these armies across the Channel.

HELEN G. CAMPBELL
WHAT YOU need for the perfect salad is some properly prepared ingredients, chosen for their harmony of color and flavor and put together with an eye to the general ensemble. Start with perky well-dried greens, crisp fresh vegetables and the right dressing, then, if you don't overgarnish, the combination is likely to be as hand søme as it is healthful.

Window glass will be superseded by transparent plastic, and interiors of w-alls, ceilings, floors, doors and trims will be finished in the same material only in the latter cases it will be opaque.
