IF THE British defeat in Libya causes public opinion in Britain to insist on a shake-up of the British Army High Command in Whitehall it may not have been a total loss. At this writing, with Rommel poised on the Egyptian frontier and Tobruk fallen after a two days’ siege, the consequences of what the London Times describes as “incontestably a disaster” are not fully apparent.

THIS ISSUE of Maclean’s went topresson the day details of Mr. Ilsley’s everybody-feelthe-pinch war budget were published. Therefore we had only an hour or two in which to tap a small sample of public reaction. What we did gather indicates that the general feeling will be that the Finance Minister has spread a heavy but necessary burden with fairness and with some consideration of the problems which beset the average man who has been slowly acquiring a home and maintaining the health of his family.

From a sermon preached by the Reverend David A. MacLennan, B.D., in Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, Toronto. Look at this country of yours, whether you live in the Dominion or in the American republic. . . . It is a community based upon a way of living, not perfect nor incorruptible, but providing (as Archibald MacLeish has said) for free men the way of dealing with a free man’s evils to create a free man’s world.

AS THIS is written, the German armies appear to be crashing out the overture to an all-out offensive along a vast Russian front. Will the Russians be able to hold it, or, if they are pushed back, can they rebound? On page five Cyrus L. Sulzberger, war correspondent of the New York Times, recently returned from Russia, tells why he thinks the answer is favorable.

ALL AFTERNOON a dust storm had been working up from the south, and now the land lay dark under it, the driving myriad particles that sifted through food and water and clung to all they touched. A cookfire was burning fitfully down by the blacks’ huts, and though at this distance he couldn’t be sure, Kemp thought that the man crouching by the fire was Lakobi.

ANGUS McSTAY
JEAN DICKENSON has sung six years on the national networks without a single week’s vacation and, for the past two seasons, has been one of the current stars of the concert stage. She is also the fabulous young lady who, according to substantiated records, is the only person who was ever offered a contract by NBC and CBS on one and the same day—and turned both offers down! Since the day of that double-header decision, she has refused two screen tests on the ground that, at the present time, she doesn’t know ham from histrionics.

IT HAS been said that the voice of the people is the voice of God. That is no doubt true at times but the most unblushing vote seeker would hardly contend that public clamor is always divinely inspired or even divinely right. In my time in England I have seen such illogical changes in public opinion as should be impossible in this, the most highly developed political country in the world.

SATURDAY afternoon was best of all. Every day that week Donnie had come home from school by the long, roundabout way of the river front. It was 1929, the year the Dawsons had the whippet, and standing in the main window of the Black House was the great silver cup.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
IT TAKES a knowing eye to glean from Hansard the underlying meaning of the mid-June debate on conscription. Three groups with extreme views have emerged: the diehards who chorus “conscription now”; the Nationalists who still hold to “conscription never”; the Coldwellians who say “conscript wealth first.

I HADN’T much time in the morning to wonder, about anything. As always, there was a stack of things to get squared away following the Big Bender. All clean fun, of course, but there was the matter of breakages at the Stratosphere Club —which Nick Pappas settled always at wholesale prices—the same at the Marlincroft, the odd outof-town crew member missing, and those others wanting anything from coffee money out of petty cash to rail transportation to a Western Canadian Port.

Symphony No. 4 in F Minor (Tchaikovsky, Op. 36): Leopold Stokowski and the NBC Symphony Orchestra (Victor M880 ten sides). For marvellous sound and good recording you will have to go a long way to find a better set. The interpretation is unorthodox, but this work can stand exciting treatment.

Scoop — A local paper had published a report of the engagement of the local schoolmaster. In the next issue was published: “As we were the first to be able to publish the report of the engagement of Mr. J. Smith, our respected schoolmaster, to Miss Matty Murphy, so we are now in a position to be the first to report that there is not an atom of truth in the assertion.”— Sarnia Observer.
