THE IDENTITY of the troubadour who versified this wistful thought is not known to us, but the lad had something. We state this not from any personal intake point of view. We are no gourmand. Give us a good breakfast and it won’t worry us one bit if we don’t hear food mentioned until lunchtime.

THE PHOTOGRAPH reproduced above is a war scene. The buildings do not conceal an artillery battery. They are not camouflaged airplane hangars. The picture is exactly what you think it is—a Canadian farm. And it’s a war scene. Not in detail, but in the broader sense, it is representative of thousands of farms throughout the Dominion.

IT IS welcome news that the Canadian Army at long last is taking to the air. The First Canadian Parachute Battalion has been authorized and personnel is being selected to go into training at Camp Shilo, Manitoba, October 15. Seven officers and twenty non-commissioned officers have already been seconded as potential instructors and are now taking intensive training at the United States Army Paratroop School, Fort Benning, Georgia.

MOST OF us are so intent on the war and its demands that we sometimes forget life on the home front is not always able to meet its crises unaided. War or no war, babies continue to be born, people continue to get sick, have accidents, grow old—and many of them need help, the help of a good neighbor.

FIVE MILLION eight hundred and thirty thousand hogs is a lot of hogs. Nose to tail these porkers could form an unbroken chain stretching from Vancouver to London. If they were loaded in hundred-car freight trains you’d have to stand at a given point along the railway track for a whole year to see the “hog specials" speed by—one train every hour.

TONIGHT Edie loved the storm outside—the wind blowing a gale and banging all the shutters on the north side of the house; the rain washing down the windowpanes and turning the driveway into a swift little brook. She couldn’t even worry about her garden and what this was doing to her bulbs.

MOST OF US at some time or other have had a dream of being pursued by some villain and being unable to move our feet. Fortunately the villain never seems to arrive but it is a humiliating and disturbing sensation when the feet refuse to perform their normal function.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
THE RISE of the manpower crisis— which is exactly six months old this September—was almost unnoticed by the Canadian people. No one seemed to expect that we should ever run out of manpower even when our policies of production and war participation extended far beyond any previously recognized limits of Canadian expansion.

WHEN CANADA’S transcontinental railways finished blasting their way through the mountains to reach the West Coast, they were content. They never bothered to right turn and go north. The C.N.R. line through Prince George to Prince Rupert cuts British Columbia approximately in half.

IF THERE is anything a New York music critic dislikes more than a rich woman who mistakenly thinks she can sing, it is probably a child prodigy. The little “geniuses” are a positive menace. So many of them have failed to pan out that nowadays the critic realizes that he takes his reputation in his hands if he dares to risk a prediction.

THEY HAD told me that Canadians were cold and undemonstrative; they had told me that Canadians were self-conscious and shy; they had told me a lot of things about Canadians which I didn’t believe, but thankfully, I was able to discount them for myself.

THE Crocus Breeze wasn’t the only paper told about our stooker and how he turned out to be a Nazzy prisoner escaped from the Broken Shell camp. All the city papers had it too, but they didn’t tell everything; they didn’t say a thing about my Little Daisy twenty-two rifle, and I’m going to tell it right, so I’m going to tell about that twentytwo.

HELEN G. CAMPBELL
WAY BACK in 1939 A.D. the Canadian dinner table was among the most pampered in the world. Of all the varieties of foods produced on this good earth, seventy per cent found their way to our grocers’ shelves and ultimately to our kitchen doors. We could buy without let or hindrance practically anything which offered nourishment for our bodies or pleasure for our palates.

YUAN WOKE to a consciousness of close, crowding darkness, of aches in his body and clinging sticky moisture that he knew was his own blood. He heard, more and more distant, the dying clatter of machine guns. That meant his bold attack on Sze-Chau had failed, that his retreating guerillas fought a lingering rear-guard action against the hateful men of Nippon.

WITH A bland finality that discourages even mild challenge, the newspaper polls these days tell us just what we think, what we believe, what we like, and indeed what we are likely to be doing a week from next Friday night. One after another, they sift the evidence of public feeling and immediately rush into print with your opinion and mine.

Duke Ellington — Perdido, Raincheck (Victor 27880). The Duke’s highly original arrangements are always a bright spot in these days of ultracommercial, so-called swing. These are by Juan Tizol and Billy Strayhorn respectively, and feature Ellington’s piano, Harry Carney’s baritone sax, the Stewart trumpet, and the tenor artistry of Ben Webster.

Several issues ago, in your inimitable column “Parade,” you published a pathetic little item about what the heavers of Algonquin Park were doing to Mr. Hoffman of the C.N.R. And you concluded with the observation that Mr. Hoffman was contemplating the removal of his railway tracks to a position of safety, far from the rodents’ depredations.

IN THE light of what we now know regarding the relationship of food to fitness, good cooking has been given an entirely new definition. Reputations are made today not by elaborate dishes and fancy “fixin’s” but by ability to select the right food and to prepare it in such a way that the nutritive value is conserved and fine natural flavors developed.
