WHAT’S the average citizen to think of the rival plans submitted by Ontario and Ottawa for Federal-provincial relations? Both aim to cure the legislative paralysis that frustrated our attempts to deal with depression in the thirties. Both want to do this while preserving the highest feasible degree of provincial autonomy.

The Editors
FOR ALL the exhortation of the realists, who forever are prodding us into the future in a great swarm of helicopters, plastics, rockets and islands in the sky, this world will cease to be a really enjoyable place the moment there no longer are men and women who occasionally daydream and live in the past.

NO ONE understands another country’s politics, and it is not always easy for people to understand their own. I can remember over the years when pilgrims returning from Canada would ask me to explain the mystery of Mackenzie King, who was criticized incessantly and returned to power inevitably.

Frank Mann Harris
IT WAS around noon, the day when the papers first came out with that yarn about the guy in California who was predicting how the end of the world was due to arrive the following Friday. Monty Card and several others of that bunch were sprawled out in chairs in the lobby of the Prince Clarence Hotel, just chewing the fat about one thing and another and trying to scrape up enough energy to walk across the street and eat breakfast.

LONG BEFORE a Frenchman named Farina invented Eau de Cologne, long before Cleopatra À discovered that a little aromatic spice sprinkled in her hair could make Mark Anthony sit up and bay at the moon, women were using the subtle magic of perfume to enchant unwary males.

JEAN HOWARTH
THE first time we saw Jake was the day he brought Sarah the big potato. We were in the kitchen, doing the last three days’ dishes and singing “Red River Valley,” in parts, when the rap came on the door. Sarah opened it with hands that dripped dishwater, and stopped carolling in the middle of a high note when she saw the middle-sized, sandy sort of fellow who was standing there.

BEFORE the end of 1946 more than 50,000 Canadians will be involved in serious traffic accidents. In these accidents 1,500 Canadians will meet agonizing death. Another 27,000 will suffer broken bones, hospitalization, grief and remorse.

IT WAS Prince Stephan zu Schaumburg Lippe, of the German Embassy in Buenos Aires, who, early in the war, asked an elevator boy in Montevideo’s smart Hotel Nogaro if he could speak German. When the boy told him he couldn’t, the prince replied, “Well, you’d better learn.

WARSAW (By Wireless)—Any objective discussion of the problem of Europe’s Jews— and the problem has a thousand tangles, some of which have lately put a strain on the patience of the Western Powers and their welfare agencies— must be predicated upon one searing circumstance.

THE war has revealed two more profitable harvests from British Columbia coastal waters, one actual and one potential. The actual harvest is the dogfish, a hideous dwarf shark once cursed by professional anglers for the damage it did to their gear, but now pursued by 6,000 fishermen for its oversized liver, exceedingly rich in vitamin A.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
BY THIS time next month, Ottawa resignedly predicts, the housing shortage will be near an all-time record. Nobody knows just how great the overcrowding is now—they’re starting a nation-wide survey to find out —but an informed guess here is that 300,000 dwelling units in Canada now contain more than one family.

SUBNORMALITY and mental unfitness seem to be on the increase in Canada. There is evidence that at the present time about 10% of our population vary in mental health from profound mental disability to a state that might be called marginal disability.

THE NIGHT of June 17, 1815, was unseasonably hot and airless over inland areas of the Province of New Brunswick, including Godfrey Manor and Dragoon Ridge and the whole winding valley of Lucifee Creek. It failed, however, to diminish the zest with which the guests of the Godfreys pursued the pleasures of the dance.

WILLIAM STEPHENSON
FORTY YEARS or so ago, in one of his early pseudoscientific novels, H. G. Wells explored this fascinating proposition: that there might exist a chemical with the miraculous properties of stimulating natural growth. Fed to flowers, vegetables and trees, the food produced plants such as the old earth had not known since Paleozoic times; fed to his hero and heroine it endowed them with superhuman qualities of size, beauty and intelligence.
