Budget Should Be Matched

BY THE time this is read, Canadians should have realized the full significance of Mr. Ilsley’s budget, applied its terms to their own salaries or wages, and commitments; worked out, or failed to work out, a revised standard of living. Tough? Well, we are still better off than the bombed people of Britain; incalculably better off than the peoples under the German heel.

APART FROM its principles, we assume that in preparing the budget Mr. Ilsley and his advisers have thoroughly examined the question of whether in practice such taxation rates are likely to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs; whether they will dry up sources of income needed in the years ahead.

Death Is Not Rationed

NOTWITHSTANDING the reduction in automobile traffic caused by gasoline rationing, the ratio of killings and maimings continues to be alarmingly high. It demonstrates that incompetence or negligence on the part of drivers and carelessness on the part of pedestrians, not road conditions, are responsible for the majority of accidents.

ANOTHER naive occidental belief exploded by this war is that the Jap is a copyist. Among the Jap’s original creations was the trick (copied by Hitler) of snitching territory under the pretense of “protecting” numerically smaller peoples.

THERE could be no doubt:seventeen sticks of dynamite were missing. Hirao Yoshizawa, superintendent of the big Japanese powder plant near Seoul, capital of Korea, hissed nervously through his teeth. The last time a similar incident occurred, the railroad bridge across the Yalu River had been blown up.

THELMA LECOCQ
PHYLLIS TURNER is different from most women in public life in that she leads with a smile instead of with her chin. Men—and she deals almost entirely with men—discover first that she’s charming, and when they find out that she’s clever as well, it upsets them only a little.

BRENDAN GILL
HE PARKED his car in a clearing between the cabin and the pond. This was the first time he had come here since the night when Harriet had swung her car over the rutted woods road, and so from sight. Pie studied the rank grass for signs of the daffodils Harriet had planted the fall before, but saw none.

A. Beverley Baxter
JULY I, 1942—That is the date which is just ahead on the diary on my desk. On it is written, “Canadian Service in Westminster Abbey.” Also, “Viscount Elibank to raise the issue of Empire co-operation in the Lords.” The one is to honor the splendid role that Canada has played in the world since Confederation took place 75 years ago.

SINCE 1906, Stephen Leacock has written a book each year. Most of them have been humorous works; some have dealt with economics. A generation of McGill University students has profited from his lectures on economics. It is an unusual combination, humor and economics, but it is not unparalleled.

W. E. JOHNS
PRIVATE Mazrak Mahomet was worried. It was not the war that worried him, for the result was never in doubt. Nor was it the heat, although lately it had remained constant at a hundred and thirty-eight in the shade. But Mazrak’s childlike mind did not concern itself with measurements of heat or anything else, for that matter.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
JAMES LORIMER ILSLEY is a modest, sober fellow. He shuns publicity and ostentation, is long on courage and common sense. A few months ago he confessed to a Capital Hill reporter that he was disappointed at the size of his income tax. “It only came to four or five thousand dollars,” he said; “I could afford to pay much more than that.”

At Last—We Hit Back!
Failure to bomb Berlin lost the last war and thousand-plane raids will win this one

says DOUGLAS REED
L0ND0N. If any future historian were to ask on what day was the Great War of 1914-1918 lost by Britain and the Allies (who thought they won it) I would answer: on November 11, 1918. The Armistice was concluded in favor of the Allies at eleven a.m. on that day; but they lost the war about six hours earlier, before dawn, when the commander of a Royal Air Force bombing formation which was preparing to bomb Berlin that night received orders cancelling the flight.

STRANGERS in Toronto are likely to be shown by the natives, with justifiable native pride, a carefully chosen collection of points of interest. Visitors are urged to gaze upon the Royal York (biggest hotel in the British Empire), the head office building of the Canadian Bank of Commerce (tallest skyscraper in the British Empire), the Toronto Stock Exchange (one of the world’s largest), the University of Toronto (most numerous student body in Canada), the Canadian National Exhibition (world’s largest permanent fair), the T. Eaton and Robert Simpson department stores; and similar obvious magnificences.

Development of long - range multi motored planes was first seized upon by military strategists as a means to bomb distant enemy objectives. Later the Russians conceived an idea which the Nazis put into practice-the use of big planes to rush troops into action, first by parachute, then by landing on airdromes seized by the paratroopers.

AUGUST fruit inspires every good provider to transform today’s bargains into thrifty assets for next winter’s table. So preserving kettles are hard at work taking up where nature left off, and turning out jams, jellies, conserves, marmalades and butters with no limitations of time or season.

SOME OF the brisk young ladies who have invaded Ottawa by the thousand during the past three years to take on war time office jobs are finding life in the capital a bit bewildering at times. Two western girls, out for a stroll on a recent evening, were caught in a sudden heavy downpour of rain, When an R.C.A.F. mobile recruiting unit stopped off at Kirkland Lake, Ont., a while back, the editor of the Northern News sent Stew Bridges, his star reporter, to cover the event.
