IT LOOKS as if the Supply half of the Reconstruction and Supply Department might be going out of existence at the coming session of Parliament. Mr. Howe’s department did all the buying and a lot of the manufacturing for the armed services right through the war, and did an outstanding job.

Martyrdom Is Catching

IN HIS running dogfight with the Quebec Jehovah’s Witnesses, Premier Maurice Duplessis has created at least one martyr and allied himself to at least one principle on which no Canadian statesman can afford to stand. The martyr is Frank Roncarelli, a Montreal restaurateur, who has frequently stood bail for fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses accused of distributing illegal pamphlets.

WITH this issue, Maclean’s invites its readers to climb aboard an expense account for a cross-country tour that will take them to the five major regions of Canada without risking a single hotel queue or upper berth. Ralph Allen’s “Prairie Comeback” (page 7) is the first of a series of reports whose object is to give Canadians an intimate and we hope revealing look at the state of the nation in its 80th year of nationhood.

RALPH ALLEN
AS THE first blizzards of 1947 swept across the Canadian prairie provinces, they blanketed a world of upheaval—a world in which 2,400,000 people were making vast changes in their ways of thinking and preparing for vast changes in their ways of living.

CHARLES HARRIS
FOR TEN BREATHLESS days this month the Greek-letter sisterhood at the University of Toronto will palpitate to the curious rhythms of a phenomenon traditionally known as “rushing.” This is a sort of campus big-game hunt which flourishes with local variations from Halifax to Vancouver and inevitably manages to stir up a number of pointed proposals for the abolition of Fraternity Row.

ON A summer’s day in Montreal, Mr. Charles Gilman, of the advertising firm of Gilman & Ross, walked into the office of his partner. Mr. Ross was dictating. He threw Mr. Gilman a dark look. “I’m busy, Charlie, come in later.” “Morry,” said Mr. Gilman, “stand up.”

JEFF KEATE
THE ONE QUESTION guaranteed to make a cartoonist break out in squeans, plewds and briffits* is this: “Who thinks up all those funny ideas for you fellows, anyway?” There is only one answer. You must sit down (sob!) and think them up for yourself, in the same way that a writer works out a story plot, or a detective tries to piece together the clues of the ice pick murder.

ONE EVENING last summer ex-Flying Officer Ed Hanratty was making a speech to his wife. They had to get out of their Ottawa flat, they couldn’t find another, and Hanratty was holding forth on the iniquity of the housing shortage. Mrs. Hanratty had heard it before.

I READ nothing but detective stories now. You don’t know any good new ones, do you?” The speaker was Somerset Maugham, master of the novel and the play, scourger of society, and sardonic artist. We were spending an evening at the house of a mutual friend and conversation had finally turned from writing to reading.

NEAR CHILLIWACK, in the Fraser Valley, there’s a flourishing colony of 3,500 Mennonites, most of whom have been there since shortly after World War I. Tom Reid, M.P. for New Westminster, who sits on the Liberal side of the House but has a strongly independent streak, recently took them as the text for a protest against group settlement of immigrants into Canada.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
OFFICIALLY, Canadian public men are all supposed to believe in United Nations—it’s an article of political piety, like belief in motherhood and full employment. Actually, though, a good many of them are pretty pessimistic about it. So it’s worth reporting that the Canadian delegates came back from United Nations Assembly really sold, some of them for the first time, on UN’s effectiveness as a world organization.

BRITT DONAHUE could smell fear in the tunnel’s lead-heavy air, and he shivered unconsciously in spite of the heat. “I don’t like it, Britt,” Jim Stevens said. "This stuff blows like nothing I’ve ever seen.” “Yeah, I know,” Donahue said, and felt uncertainty slipping into his mind.

THE CHUBBY farm boy, sitting on the steps of a weather-beaten house in a backwoods valley in New Brunswick, had dreams in his head and money in his pocket. He had earned the money trapping muskrats. Now his fingers closed around the crisp bills, and his thoughts drifted to cities he had never seen, where rich and glamorous women draped themselves in the skins of wild animals.

AS THEY SCAN the air horizons of the next few decades, aeronautical scientists see the dream stuff of fiction assuming the substance of reality. Here, in capsule form, is the forecast: 1. The conventional piston engine driving a propeller, limited to about 500 miles an hour, is on the way out.

ONE DAWN, when the boys of the band were walking home after a jam session, Harry Kildonan said that when Clutey Rolfe blew his horn it was like a preview of Gabriel and echo of Joshua all rolled up in one ride to heaven. Of course everyone was still keyed up by the music, and Harry had borrowed freely from the extravagance of the occasion; but it had pleased Clutey to have Harry say that about his trumpet.

Christopher Morley
A sonnet, like a fir cone, has its flanges Ingeniously clustered, shaped and tilted To catch the maximum of air and sun. Grouped on a stalk of syntax, with tough hinges; And if it falls where any soil is silted, Some casual new sonnet is begun. What are these woods, this scenery on the jag, But rhyme and pattern, patiently defined By season and erosion and the storm:

A BEAUTIFUL sleuth on our Vancouver roster of beautiful sleuths was hiding behind the right pillar in the right department store to see a lady customer hoist her pet Peke up to a fountain for a drink. A passing male shopper halted in his tracks, looked outraged, and protested this as “highly unsanitary.”
