WE KNOW of no question that is more frequently put than “How Are You?” It has, by usage, become a casual question which produces casual answers. From the national health and war production points of view it is an exceedingly important question.

Yorkshire Post
“One of the major problems of this century, a problem that may dwarf many that we now look upon as of supreme importance, is the decline in the birth rate. It is difficult to bring the seriousness of the situation home to the public at large at a time when we are faced with far more pressing anxieties; but a sturdy attempt is made in ‘Parents Revolt,’ a new book by Richard and Kathleen Titmuss.

AT THE age of eleven, Master George Frederick Beurling sought his father’s advice as to how he might scale a certain fence and drop into a world which, even at that age, had long fascinated him. On the other side of the fence was an airdrome.

<p>WE WENT up to intercept a mixed raid of bombers and fighters,” said Beurling. “We got over them, went through the fighters to get at the bombers. Then the bombers turned and beat it for Sicily. So we were left with just the fighters.” “Where was this, George?” asked Beurling’s father.</p>

THELMA LECOCQ
NORAH McCARTHY is a pretty nineteenyear-old girl from North Bay, Ont., who makes almost as much money as the Prime Minister—and draws larger audiences than most prime ministers are fortunate enough to attract. Until May 7, 1942, Norah’s net earnings were a basketful of medals won for amateur figure skating.

Beverly Baxter's
AS THE end of the year 1942 approaches the British people are permitting themselves the unaccustomed luxury of being rather angry. True to the British character which is essentially paradoxical this bout of anger synchronizes with the first ringing of the church bells since 1940, the magnificent victory in Egypt, and the tremendous Anglo-American coup in Africa which, in one bold stroke, hurled the Axis powers from the offensive to the defensive.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
CONSERVATIVE elation over the elevation of John Bracken to the Conservative leadership is not yet matched by corresponding alarm in Liberal and C.C.F. ranks. There is some anger in the Liberal High Command at what some of its members regard as the apostasy of a man whom they looked on as a friend and brother. John Bracken had some close political friendships around Ottawa; friendships that go back many years.

TUCKED away on one of the inside pages of the morning paper the other day was an item that rated Page One for every mother or father in Canada, for every Canadian who loves his country. It was the report of a war job we haven’t done, a battle we haven’t won, a failure on the major front of health.

THE FACTORY whistles blow—midshift— and Canada’s million-odd war workers take time out for lunch. A million pairs of feet quick march from the production line to the cafeteria line-up or lunch rooms where the clatter of knives and forks and dishes replaces the whir of machines and the clang-clang of plowshares being beaten into armaments.

THIS WEIRD commercial interlude began literally with a breeze—a quisling breeze that wafted through the open window of our Gopher Gap teacherage dining room, a frigid reminiscence of bygone snows. I sneezed. “You’re getting another touch of ’flu, Holloway,” Marcia cautioned me with wifely solicitude.

THE search for rubber substitutes has produced some surprising results and one of them is the use of a new type of rayon to eke out the rubber in tires for war vehicles, as described in Scientific American: Tough sinews of this high-tenacity rayon lie beneath the precious rubber skin of military tires—for bombers, combat cars, or transport trucks.

Should We Hate the Germans?
Under this title, Beverley Baxter, in his London Letter of our December 1 issue dealt with the “to hate or not to hate” argument current in Britain. This article provoked an unusual response from Maclean’s readers, as can be seen by the following letters—a few of the scores which were received.

I WAS very much interested in Beverley Baxter’s article, “Should we hate the Germans?” (Dec. 1). We know there are the two classes: first, the “faddists and idealists,” and second, the “hate brigade.” I cannot agree with the idea that Nazism is not the German people.
