Ourselves and the Russians

LATELY the papers have been full of stories about conditions inside Russia and her satellites—the grim standards, the iron tyranny, the extraordinary measures taken to blindfold the people and to stop their ears. These stories are factually interesting.

ONE OF the main difficulties in running a magazine (if you’re interested in our troubles) is the unshakable refusal of time to stand still during the few weeks between the day an article is set in type and the day it appears on your parlor table.

Lewis Mumford’s article, “Gentlemen, You Are Mad!” is a sane voice in this madbrained world. It is remarkably good, and it should be published in all leading magazines throughout the world. Those madmen who are working for the perfection of this superinfernal machine should ask the opinion of the European peoples, who are still suffering from the last war.

BLAIR FRASER
IN MONTREAL a man went to buy a suit of English cloth that he used to buy for $65, even as late as 1942. His tailor showed him a bolt supposed to be a little better, though the man could see no difference. It will cost $95—46% higher than the old price—and it’s all the tailor has.

A. C. ANDERSON
IF YOU are lounging in a lawn chair, reading this magazine, there’s probably an ant crawling up your leg. A few yards away, on city sidewalk or lakeside rock, four-year-old Junior may be slaughtering an advancing column of ants with a stone, marvelling that they keep right on coming and pause only to make off with their dead.

W. W. BAUER, M.D.
IN THIS hemisphere slenderness is a fetish. Take the case of the high-school girl who wrote this plaintive letter to a medical authority: “I am 17 and, according to the scale in front of the five-and-ten, I weigh exactly what I should for my height.

WILL HAGEN
EARLY MORNING sun glinted from the snow that rolled to the far horizon. It was dazzlingly white. It was quiet as an empty cathedral and frosty as the Bering Sea. Matt Johnson not iced none of these things as he stopped on his way to Alvsborg, Man., to see his good friends and next door neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Lars Swenson.

IF SINCERITY is the mark of a good President of the United States, Harry S. Truman, 32nd in line since George Washington, is a success. “Pray for me,” he asked a newspaperman when the death of Franklin Roosevelt thrust him into the White House, “I need it.”

FROM the Mount Royal Hotel in Montreal to the trackside at Windsor Station it’s three city blocks. They’re not long blocks and they slope downhill, but for a travelling man trying to stand off an expense account, or for a tourist trying to save the price of tomorrow’s breakfast, they constitute as hazardous and punishing a gauntlet as ever drew a bank roll’s blood.

AS THE airplane crossed the Netherlands coast there was the same thought, we discovered afterward, in each of our minds. This was the route of death and victory, the path taken by the young crusaders of the clouds in the battle that had robbed us of almost a generation.

MOST of the cascara used on this continent originates in southern British Columbia, where small boys can make handsome pocket money and professionals have often earned as much as $40 a day peeling bark from the wild cascara tree. Drug manufacturers process the bark to obtain the medicine, which is used in laxatives and other remedies.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
QUEBEC M.P.’S were amazed and chagrined to find the Prime Minister dead set on the Red Ensign and Maple Leaf for Canada’s flag. If they’d known how he felt, some of them wouldn’t have been so brash about promising that only over their dead bodies would the Union Jack go into any Canadian flag.

THE trouble starts one night I am taking time off from my used car lot to sit in Mable’s kitchen and chew the fat with her grandpa while I watch Mable iron the old rooster’s shirts. “Have you heard about Mable being asked to quit her job at the Griddle and be a private secretary?”

THOUSANDS of successful men and women trace their most important steps of advancement to the fact that they were able to express their ideas and reports and analyses clearly and convincingly by speech or in writing or both. It is the spoken and written word that enables you to show others what you have to offer.

SUDDENLY, one day when the world is a little crazy with springtime, and the puddles shine, and the melting snow winks endlessly, there comes into the heart of a boy the strong desire to kiss someone who is neither an aunt, a cousin, nor a mother.

WHILE I climbed to the deck, as Beemer gloated, Gemmell stood leaning against the rail, pale as marble, as always was the case when he had committed some terrible blunder. I learned from him that, supposing we were already beyond the reach of treachery, he had made a confidant of Beemer, who had snatched the copy of my letter and run with it to the captain.
