AS A temporary expedient, Mr. Ilsley’s offer of separate deals to the provinces may be as good as can be got at the moment. It still isn’t good enough. He offers to any province that wants it the financial terms Ottawa proposed to the Dominion-provincial conference—$15 per capita in lieu of income and estate taxes.

ANYBODY who wants to talk business on a day like this can skip to the last item on this page, where the business is. In the meantime the rest of us are going swimming. We get nostalgic about swimming—a little creek on the prairies, a deep hole in the New Brunswick woods, a cool lake in Northern Ontario, a beach near Vancouver.

Do You Want The Next War?

L. S. B. SHAPIRO
I HAVE just returned to Canada after a long assignment in Europe and the Middle East, in the course of which I have toured the most explosive of the world’s trouble spots. Let me make myself exceedingly clear about what I found: The Western Powers and Russia are marching toward war.

Douglas Lurton
MOST OF US are very reluctant to face ourselves and admit, even in our own minds, that we have definite faults that cry out for change. We shy away from facing our shortcomings. If you have ever had nagging doubts about your own personality, if you feel that you want to make changes for the better, you should take the following personality test.

IF YOU were the heir to an estate which was being liquidated by a trustee, there are a few elementary things you would not expect the trustee to do. You would not expect your trustee to take an axe to any of your belongings for which there was a demonstrable use.

MARTHA BANNING THOMAS
THE GREY GULL rode high—higher than she’d ever be likely to ride again. Overhanging tree branches scratched her cabin roof. And higher yet, by the wheel, stood a girl, looking uncommonly cool and resolute. She was dressed in dark blue, and wore a tiny scarlet cap on her blowing curls.

JOHN CAULFIELD SMITH
THE stern realities of the housing situation have jolted most people out of their day-dreams about futuristic houses with walls made of sawdust and cotton. Most people are willing to take any kind of building material—or any kind of house they can get.

Thelma LeCocq
THIRTY YEARS ago an attractive young Canadian girl named Margaret Cuthbert, with a certificate in Fine Arts from Cornell University, found herself standing on what is customarily described as the threshold of life. The threshold led first to what must have seemed like somewhat of a blind alley—the little town of Maple Creek, Sask., where her family (her father was in the Northwest Mounted Police) had been moved from Dawson City.

BEVERLEY BAXTER'S
THERE was much excitement, as two young women entered our compartment on the Belfast to Dublin express. One, about 24 years of age, was a radiant redhead, dressed in clothes that were startlingly gay, and with a wholesome vivacity that lit up the scene like one of Mr. Rank’s arc lights.

ERNEST K. LINDLEY
WASHINGTON without a major national strike seems almost as unnatural as Washington without a war. The series of important stoppages, which began shortly after V-J Day, came to an end in early June. It now looks as if there will be a period of rela tive industrial peace until autumn, and perhaps until the turn of the year.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
VETERANS’ LAND ACT people are scratching their heads over one veterans’ benefit which wasn’t exactly intended. It’s legal enough, but hardly orthodox. In about a dozen recent cases, the Land Act office has been amazed at veterans’ patriotic independence.

WILBUR S. PEACOCK
AH KEE had no age. Each year etched new lines in his face, until the flesh began to draw like the skin of a wind-sere apple, but always he moved with the same smooth grace and dignity of the year before. He was old-world, his queue neatly plaited in the five strands prescribed by custom, and his nails, while not close-clipped, were not the length of those of an idler.

WHEN it comes to pulling rabbits out of a silk hat, Blackstone may be quite a guy. But that’s just kid stuff for 51-year-old Roy Herbert Thomson, a fast-talking Torontonian who traded mumbo jumbo for supersalesmanship, a magic wand for a fountain pen and proceeded to pull hundreds of thousands of dollars literally out of thin air.

RAY MILLHOLLAND
THERE is no law on the statute books which decrees that a toolmaker must be handsome in a masculine way—or even not the first cousin of a gargoyle for that matter. Which is a very fortunate thing for Packy Laws, who once earned the distinction as being the only baby in Atwood Riding whom both rival candidates during the Tupper campaign publicly refused to kiss.

CLIMB INTO the stern seat of a trim white rowboat at Painter’s wharf, with the morning star still hanging high. Settle yourself while your guide eases down toward steel-colored Discovery Passage, oars dipping almost soundlessly. The man in the stern of the shadowy boat to starboard is a tycoon from New York.

LINUS W. MILLER
ON AUG. 22, three days before my execution was to take place, the sheriff came to the jail and read from a document which he held in his hand, “Linus Wilson Miller, His Excellency, the Lieutenant-Governor, has been graciously pleased, in consideration of some circumstances in your favor, to commute your sentence of death to transportation for life to Her Majesty’s penal colony of Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania, Australia).”

Justice for the Male— A Chicago divorce judge advocates marriage on a 50-50 basis: there should, he says, be no such thing as a head of the house. Quite right, too; it’s high time the husband got equal recognition.— Calgary Herald. Wartime Housing Note—Now and again you see a new house which looks as though it would fall down it the builders removed the scaffolding before they put on the wallpaper.

DON’T think Ottawa is completely over that spy scare yet. Don’t think this Army officer’s innocent heart didn’t do a back flip when a man wearing plain clothes and an inquisitorial look approached his desk and demanded: “Did you or did you not receive a parcel containing a watch about 10 days ago?” Don’t think a sudden silence didn’t fall over the office, every steno’s fingers pausing in mid-air and every breathless glance focused on the white-faced officer as he gulped, “Yes—I did.”
