YOU likely read the National War Finance Committee’s advertisement which, polling reports of Victory Loan salesmen, sorts Canadians into eight types. In case you didn’t, it listed as tops the “Responsive Type.” These are people who gladly lend their money because they feel the conditions we enjoy in this land are worth fighting for and worth paying for; who answer their call to duty as readily as our soldiers, sailors and airmen answer their call to duty.

IT WAS on March 4 that we received from Vancouver a letter signed “Archaeologist.” It suggested that the war, both in Europe and Asia, would come to a dramatic finish on March 23, and that “before the exaltation has subsided a hellish anticlimax will plunge the world into war once again.”

JOHN CAULFIELD SMITH
THERE ARE 150,000 Canadian families living in congested quarters. To house them we’d have to huild another city as big as Toronto. Or, if you think one. Toronto is enough, we could build instead another Ottawa, another Winnipeg, another Hamilton and Windsor. Either way the total dwellings provided would be the same.

ROBERT L. GOWE
THE juke-box people, chortling over their piles of nickels, are beaming more broadly than ever these days and don’t hate anybody. And the bobby soxers and the hepcats go their own unfettered way little knowing why the tradesmen who make their nickels add up to $10 millions are so happy.

LAURA MAE QUANCE
BREAKFAST at our house has become a delirious affair. This is due to father’s alarm clock, which is eccentric because of extreme old age. Sometimes it goes at five in the morning, calling forth loud words from father, none of which he could print in the Friar’s Point Times, of which he is editor. Sometimes it waits until 7.30, which is half an hour too late, and then blows its top like a three-alarm fire.

IT WAS just after Christmas and the Sunday school teacher in Cardston, southern Alberta Mormon centre, asked each of the pupils what Santa Claus had brought them. “Not a darn thing!” was the reply of young Solon Earl Low, to the consternation of the teacher, who still tells the story—for Solon had been in the bad books of Santa Claus that Christmas.

WHAT DOES Social CREDIT STAND FOR?
If Social Credit were to win in Canada would we have private enterprise or state control? — collective bargaining?—social insurance? — higher or lower tariffs? —membership in a new league of nations?—closer ties to the Empire?—Solon Low, national leader of the movement, gives the answers in response to 33 questions on his policies

SOLON LOW
BEFORE answering your questions on definite aspects of Social Credit, I should begin by outlining, very briefly, some salient points upon which there appears to be widespread misunderstanding. In the first place Social Credit is not simply a scheme of monetary reform.

WITHIN the next few months, perhaps in September or October, Britain will hold the most unpredictable, and in some ways the most fateful, general election for a hundred years. The result may not only determine the course of Britain’s destiny but will affect the Empire and have profound repercussions on nations and continents outside the Commonwealth and across many seas.

UP ALONG the rim of Germany Canuck airmen held for weather were shooting the breeze. When would the war end? As civilians, who of them would be going where to do what? One asked, “How about you, skipper?” The pilot grinned, his eyes suddenly dreamy. “I guess I’ve kind of got the edge on you birds,” he said. “I come from Powell River.”

WESTERN FRONT (By Cable) — When Colonel Ernest Dupuy, U. S. Army, opened the control switch of a microphone in London on the morning of June 6, 1944, and spoke the words, “This is D-Day,” he broke the biggest news story of the war. The Second Front—long dreamed, doubted and decried—was at last a reality.

The Maritimes BALANCING budgets by liquor profits has been the rule in Nova Scotia since war brought a population boom, but the eightman Liberal Cabinet isn’t any too happy about it. One reason is that dry sentiment is strong in that beer-parlorless province and political opponents use soaring liquor revenues as ammunition to attack the administration.

ONE SPRING dad got interested in the influence of the planets on planting times and sent five dollars to Vancouver for a book on astrology. It told him this year the season would be late. He got all excited because he’d seen what he’d figured were a lot of confirming signs—the geese were late flying north, snow was slow leaving the timber line in the mountains above our valley, and houseflies were dull and stupid.

YOU DON’T peed to be a railroader to know that the Big Hill is on that spectacular piece of railway track between Field and Banff in the Rockies; that it is 14 miles of winding main line steel which loops twice upon itself through spiral tunnels cut into two mountains which border the famous Kicking Horse Pass. Anybody west of Winnipeg has heard of the Big Hill.

HELEN G. CAMPBELL
SPRING cleaning nowadays isn’t the old-time orgy of sweeping, scrubbing and scouring. But it’s no afternoon tea either. It needs a clear head, a strong right arm and as much patience as any woman can muster. You can wade right in without a plan if you want to, but you’re likely to rout the family as well as the dirt.
