WE IN Canada have known for some years that the quickest means, and in some circumstances the most efficient means, of transporting a cow, a man or a hoist drum to a wilderness mining camp is the airplane. Not being militarily minded, few of us have realized that the airplane is also the quickest, and in some circumstances the most efficient, means of transporting a soldier and his weapons to battle.

VIGOROUS criticism of party government in wartime is voiced by Sir William Beveridge, one of Britain’s ablest political economists, in an article in the Times of London. All-out war, he says, demands a national government “free of all party trammels.

IT IS one of the paradoxes of this world that war, which destroys all peace, is fought for—peace. Even the Germans who profess to believe that war in itself is good have ideas about replacing it with something which they would label “peace.” This would not be our kind of peace, of course; but then what is our kind of peace?

I am taking the liberty of enclosing a photograph which shows a FrenchCanadian mother who, due to the shortage of the flag supply,* is making her own. This would have rejoiced the heart of the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote so sympathetically of these Canadians.

BRUCE HUTCHISON
WHEN YOU get off the New York sleeper at the Union Station, Washington, at a quarter to seven a.m., and find a hundred frantic businessmen trying to divide ten taxicabs between them, you begin at once to sense the enormous congestion of this American capital, the surging energy and fierce excitement of the American character.

IN THE loft above a pigeon flew some, slapping his wings to beat anything. One of the cats mewed. Stanchions clanked. Listening to the cows munching away on their green feed, I stood just inside the barn door with my throat all plugged up like when Jake plays “The Letter Edged In Black” on his mandolin, only worse.

THERE is a new star in the dollar-a-year sky at Ottawa. His name is S. Boyd Millen. He is the man who gets top marks for having planned and conducted the ration card blitz which swept across Canada in the last week of June. He is now preparing to distribute 11,000,000 permanent ration books, around September 1.

AHAND fell on my shoulder and I turned away for a moment from the job of destroying maps, documents and instruments at the navigation desk. Keefer stood at my elbow, still carrying the hatchet with which he had chopped the rear gunner out of his jammed turret.

A. Beverley Baxter, M.P.
THE House of Commons had voted. It seemed an interminable time for the Government supporters to get through the lobby but at last they had emerged from the bottleneck and crowded the House to hear the result. The face of M. Maisky, the Soviet Ambassador, almost lost its semi-Asiatic imperturbability.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
WITH Commons safely back among the home folk, that hardy 1942 perennial, “manpower crisis,” is here again. This time, as usual, everyone says it’s the real thing. This time, as usual, the Cabinet is violently split. This time, as usual, there looks to be a first-rate bust-up in the offing.

THE manpower shortage is reaching acute form in British Columbia. Most serious labor shortage is in the mines. According to Herbert Anscomb, Minister of Mines, base metal mines producing raw material for armaments have lost a third of their labor in the last year.

WHEN the fashion picture for fall was outlined in New York this summer, its highlight had nothing to do with furs or velvets or high-sounding couturier names. It was the simple pronouncement by a well-known American fashion editor. “I think,” she said, ‘‘we shall have nightshirts instead of nightgowns.

A COUPLE of tardy lunchers, dallying over coffee cups in a restaurant in a large Canadian city the other afternoon, were startled by the precipitate entrance of two brisk young fellows, each carrying a bulging white canvas sack. The pair hurled themselves into chairs at an adjacent table, opened the bags and cascaded to the covered top a Niagara of nickels, dimes and quarters; but mostly nickels.

During four hundred years in which the white man has wandered in South America, he has not discovered any plant or tree, the initial properties of which were not already known by the aborigines. Quinine, cocaine, ipecacuanha, potatoes, beans, maize and cocoa were being used centuries before the white men came to this country.
