THIS issue of Maclean’s goes to press as the United Statesand the British Empire have declared war on Japan following a typical below-the-bdt blow at the Pacific bases of the two democratic owers, now actually allies at arms. First news is grm, and it would be senseless to underestimate tie initial striking power of an enemy possessing considerable naval strength, well schooled in reachery, and working to plans long made in conjunction with a skilful German organization system.

IN journalistic circles there was considerable surprise when the publisher of the Toronto Globe and Mail selected an Anglican Bishop as its representative among the party of Canadian newspaper men who, at the invitation of the British Council, visited Britain last fall.

PERCY JOHN BUTTERWORTH was born in a Midlands city exactly eighteen years ago. Percy John inherited considerable Lancashire guile and logic from his mother, and the Midlands calm and unreasoning love of dumb beasts from his father. In his physical frame he somehow co-ordinated all the misshapen features of both.

IT WAS mid-September and in Canada husky young hockey players were dusting off skates and sticks. In the United States, managers of professional and amateur hockey teams which call heavily on Canada for their ice talent were polishing off winter schedules.

I HAD barely time to examine a bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln in Mr. De Valera’s anteroom in his offices in Dublin before an attendant came through a door and said: “The Prime Minister is awaiting you.” I found myself seated across a mahogany table from a man who greeted me most cordially and who was in most respects different from what I had expected.

LONDON, Dec. 6 (By Cable). We are within a few days of Christmas and it is unlikely that anyone old enough to take notice will ever forget the Yuletide festival of 1941. It falls on Thursday, which would mean in normal times that the holiday would begin late Wednesday afternoon and go on through Christmas Day and Boxing Day with the week end thrown in for good measure.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
THE YEAR’S END found a sombre, sober mood in Ottawa. War with Japan, with peril to Canada’s Pacific seaboard. Prime Minister King deprived of his old trusted Quebec chieftain. A cabinet depleted and crying for reorganization. New rumblings for union government.

AT FIRST Freddy Stafford didn’t know why he had gone into the Winter Sports Show. He had never had anything to do with any winter sport and he had no interest in ever having anything to do with one. He was strictly a bit-of-tennis-in-nice-warm-weather man.

CHARLES L. SHAW
AS HITLER drives eastward against Russia, Canada and the United States cannot fail to become increasingly aware of the potential threat to this continent’s security in the far northwest—where the frontiers of Siberia and Alaska are separated by a stretch of water barely twice as wide as the English Channel.

A “STUFFED cloud” is a mass of pastecolored vapor with the stealthy distinction of having a mountain peak tucked away inside it. This bit of bush flier’s vernacular took on sudden significance, even at 8,000 feet, as Chief-Pilot Sheldon Luck of Yukon Southern Air Transport nursed back his throttles, and eased forward on the control column.

THREE thousand years ago, the Aras River— the Araxes of the classics, and today the boundary between the Soviets and Iran (Persia)—first ran red. Then a forgotten dynasty, the Pechdad Kings, fought for “civilization” on the roof of the world.

WINTER gales churning across the North Sea at this time of year are an added hazard to the game little ex-fishing trawlers which sweep shipping channels clear of mines. They also bring added hardship to one of the toughest and most dangerous jobs the war has thrust upon the British people.

HELEN G. CAMPBELL
WE’VE all done our share of longing for the good old days when everything was simpler and we didn’t have to put on a “spread” every time we entertained a few of our friends. Well, now we’ve got ’em in that respect at least; simplicity is the fashion again and hostesses vie with each other merely in the amount of knitting, sewing, quilting or other good work done at their parties.

A FEW hours after the Calgary recruiting centre of the Royal Canadian Air Force had enthusiastically accepted an exceptionally fine recruit, the youth’s father stormed into the office demanding that the enlistment be cancelled. He offered a number of reasons, none of them carrying much conviction to the R.C.A.F. representatives, who were most reluctant to let go of their prize.
