WE have a pretty strict rule that the editorial columns of this magazine cannot be used as are the famous "agony columns" of London newspapers, which latter are, of course, conducted on a paid advertising basis. Moreover, we do not consider that we ought to be cast in the role of Cupid.

WILLIAM ARTHUR BREYFOGLE
FOR THE first time in three months, there was mail that day. Dr. John Sherwood smiled at the sight of his wife surrounded by the envelopes she had ripped open, lost in a perusal of the long-delayed letters. There was an engaging childishness in the way Elizabeth pounced upon mail.

IN THE golf-club shower room, a young ex-centurian soaps, splashes and brags. “Yes, sir,” he shouts to his pal in the farthest compartment, “I’ve really arrived. Been trying five years to break a hundred, and today I hit 98. In a month I’ll be in the eighties. No stopping me now. Bring on your tournaments.”

LONDON—Punctually to the moment Hitler’s bid for victory, of which I have been writing since I started these articles for Maclean's in November last, has begun. The ordeal is upon us. The next five or six months—from May to October of 1941—will decide the issue of this war.

JACCQUES M. MAY
DURING recent months a situation of the utmost gravity has arisen in the Far East. It can be outlined as follows: The Japanese have now put themselves in a position to occupy peacefully bases in southern Indo-China and in Siam similar to those the Germans have occupied on the French, Belgian and Netherland coasts. This means the two situations, that on the English Channel in Europe, and that on the Malayan Channel in Asia, are similar.

WHEN these words appear Churchill will have concluded his first year as Prime Minister of Great Britain. He assumed office as the Nazis hurled themselves at Belgium and Holland. The Norway fiasco which had brought Chamberlain down was forgotten in the intense drama of the German push against the Low Countries whose integrity Hitler had solemnly promised to protect.

FREDERICK EDWARDS
THE BIG thing about the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, is its astonishing versatility. The population of the city proper is about 18,500. Point Edward, an adjoining suburb, adds another 1,200. The Dominion census of 1931 ranked Sarnia eighteenth among Ontario’s twenty-eight cities, tucking it in snugly between Stratford (17,742) and Sudbury (18,518).

HENRY ASHBERY
In the last chapter of the first volume of Mein Kampf (1926) Hitler says: “The English people must be looked upon as the most valuable ally in the world as long as its leaders and the spirit of its great masses permit us to expect that brutality and toughness which is determined to fight out, by all means, to the victorious end a struggle once started, without considering time and sacrifices, in which case the actual military armament need not be in any proportion to that of other States.”

FOUNDED upon a solid base of scientific research, the vitamin industry is a growing one of much importance. Scientific American tells us: No passing fad or fancy is the growing emphasis on vitamins. Freakish dietary fads come and go, frequently doing far more harm than good, but the healthpromoting properties of vitamins have been so definitely established by medical science that vitamins have long since passed the stage where even the most sceptical might look upon them askance.

ALMOST everybody collects something, states Harry Salpeter in The American Mercury. He continues: The new leisure, even the new unemployment, have justified the hobby. It not only serves as a recreative dividend to a life of activity; it is all the activity many lives have, and lends them new meaning and significance.

Doesn’t Like Recruiting Methods Recent issues of daily papers carried advertisements suggesting that Canadian men should join the army to learn a trade. Will the casualty lists be headed, “For the Sake of Learning a Trade?” Does our Government feel that the best way to appeal to Canadian men is by way of self-interest? The advertisement did not mention the duty of Canadians to Canada or the allegiance we owe our King.

Eyes Deceived Him—For an hour the two men in the railway carriage, strangers to each other, had sat face to face. Then suddenly one burst out: “I always knew my hearing wasn’t good, but I never thought this would happen.” “What’s wrong?” asked the other.

An elephant is the strangest casualty so far recorded in any war, states a correspondent with the forces in East Africa. It trod on a land mine laid in the bush to trap tanks. The mine exploded and the elephant was seriously hurt. A bird was the culprit, but the tenant, one Edward Norman, paid the Al fine for an offense against London’s blackout.

Diet for Airmen MEDICAL experts are devoting much time and thought to discovering the best diet for our airmen. Modern flying conditions impose a considerable strain. For one thing speeds have greatly increased since the last war, and a pilot is liable to suffer a temporary blackout when undertaking a steep vertical turn.
