SO FAR as Canadians generally are concerned, we believe that observance of this fifth wartime Christmas will be closer to the original spirit of the festival than it has been for a long period of years. Many thousands of people are at grips with fundamentals.

Ven. D. S. Catchpole
Rector, St. Michael and All Angels’ Church, Kelowna, B.C. IN THESE days, and in years past, many policies have been formulated, many platforms laid, many plans outlined, and almost all have been advocated on the basis of political expediency, profit or some ground of a similar nature.

How To Save Paper

IN ENGLAND, if you throw away a used bus ticket you are liable to a fine for wasting paper. Paper isn’t that scarce in Canada, but it is scarce. There must be no waste. All magazines and newspapers are operating on a paper ration system. All business can help in the conservation of a commodity without which it could not function.

LAST issue, commenting on certain differences between U.S. and Canadian police and legal procedure, we quoted from a letter written to a newspaper by a Toronto lawyer. It indicated that the local police authorities had acquiesced in what in this country are regarded as extralegal methods.

THE ROYAL burgh of st. Andrews, Fifeshire, Scotland, is noted for two institutions. One, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, founded 189 years ago, is the legislative authority whose pronouncements dominate the science of biffing a small white ball through space and ultimately depositing it in a hole.

MANKIND stands perplexed and baffled before the new situation and the new problems . The primeval dread of the unknown is once more upon us, and the dark irrational forces of the past are once more stalking forward from their obscure background.

AMAN, later described as “The only peacemaker at Versailles,” prophesied in 1917: “We shall win this war but lose the peace, and all who are directing in this war will lose their reputation.” The peace treaties were dishonored; the ideals for which millions bled became ashes in the mouths of a dead generation; the statesmen and peacemakers were written off as failures or fools, and in desperation the world returned to battle.

CALCUTTA-(BY CABLE): The fact that Lord Louis Mountbatten was appointed commander of the southeast Asian theatres is an index not only to how important but, also, how difficult the task of attacking the Japs out here is. He has a reputation for toughness, and the job to be done in these jungle-covered lands of the southeast Asias is the toughest one of any Allied theatre.

DR. WILDER G. PENFIELB
ON THE afternoon of July 2, seven surgeons disemplaned at a Moscow airport. Our mission had nothing to do with politics; our hosts were total strangers; the visit was without precedent. Consequently I, for one, felt some trepidation. To make matters worse, we had to get out of a Liberator bomber in front of the receiving line.

GORDON SINCLAIR
FIFTEEN years ago Albert Caley, who didn’t skate, pulled the garden hose from the basement of his home and flooded a back yard rink, about the size of two blankets, for his five daughters. He could have made it bigger because the Caley home was in the fields—fields which in 15 years have become part of Toronto’s suburb of Forest Hill.

THE FIFTH Christmas! I find it difficult to believe that such a heading could be written to an article. It seems so short a time since December 25, 1939, and yet it seems an eternity. Everyone lias experienced that curious duality in relation to time.

IT TOOK only a few lines of type to announce that L. B. (Mike) Pearson of Canada’s Washington Embassy staff and Brooke Claxton, M.P., had been appointed Canadian delegates to the UNRRA meeting at Atlantic City last month. But Ottawa thinks the work that these two able young Canadians tackled at the famous prewar resort is as important as it promises to be controversial.

A FEW hours after Great Britain declared war on Nazi Germany a strange order was sent out over the British Broadcasting Commission. The War Office ordered the imznediate release of all homing pigeons in the British Isles. Behind this order was the fear that German agents had probably “planted” homing pigeons in the United Kingdom and would use them to fly information out of the country.

EVERYONE has her own ideas of the right and proper Christmas dinner—and who am I to interfere in so personal a matter? But even though your general pattern adheres to your particular family traditions you might tamper a bit with the minor details or even take the bold step of modernizing one of the main dishes.

In reference to your editorial on M. J. Coldwell’s answers. Such a state ownership as he proposes would be an over-all monopoly, and so an economic dictatorship, which is as complete as one can be. Mr. M. J. C. lists state distributors of milk and bread.
