CANADA’S argument with the Big Four deputies charged with drafting the German peace treaty was no mere matter of wounded vanity. Here’s what happened: Deputies met in London to prepare drafts for the real Big Four meeting in Moscow. They invited 17 smaller combatants to send in written statements, with oral comment if desired, on the treaties with Germany and Austria.

OUT OF the heavy federal taxes of wartime we have been paying, each year, $124,500,000 toward the support of nine provincial governments. Under Ottawa’s third “final” offer last January which appeared acceptable to seven provinces, the 1947 bill for the whole nine would run to $226 millions—just a little over $100 millions more.

DURING the six war years Canadians gave the Red Cross more money and more blood donations per capita than did the people of any other nation. The magnitude of the Canadian Red Cross Society’s wartime program has left it with a reconversion problem of comparable magnitude.

IT’S A SAD axiom of the publishing trade that a prophet is without honor in his own scrapbook. That’s what makes Max Werner famous. He’s one of the few literary pundits who has been able consistently to look over his old clippings without blushing—which is our justification for supplying him with a limb on which to hang his latest prediction, “Peace Is Inevitable” (page 7).

Peace Is Inevitable

MAX WERNER
PEACE is inevitable. I am as deeply convinced that peace is inevitable now as I was deeply convinced in the thirties that war was inevitable. This conviction has grown upon me after thorough investigation. I recently visited the peacemaking capitals—London, Paris, Washington, New York, with three months in Great Britain and France.

GEOFFREY YATES
LET ME tell you about an operation that brought me back to this world. For more than 10 years I was hard of hearing. On the outer edge of everything. Almost out of this world. Eighteen months ago my hearing was restored. It still seems like a miracle to me, but actually it wasn’t.

THE STREET was dark. The only sound was the creaking of our footsteps on the packed snow. One hundred yards ahead, two women with kerchiefed heads looked swiftly around them, then disappeared into one of the shabby doorways which crowd the sidewalks in the Point St. Charles district of Montreal.

THERE were some things about Miss Nelly that would have surprised the people who thought they knew her—the children she taught, and the men and women who had once been the children she taught. And those who were neither, but thought they knew her well because they had heard all about her ever since they could remember.

TRENT FRAYNE
BRIDGE IS a strange and wonderful card game which causes husbands to denounce their wives and wives to starve their young. It creates barely tolerable social cliques and indigestible snobbery, permita racial discrimination and is the basis of as many domestic quarrels as the pay envelope or the unattached blonde.

HUGH MacLENNAN
NO ONE knows better than I that Canada is a practical country. She is famous for her railroads and wheat, for her science and her law, for engineering and a capacity for affairs. But she is not famous for her books. This situation, I believe, is changing.

Marshall’s to the Secretaryship of State. This really tremendous expression of confidence in his integrity and wisdom will help him in his new tasks, up to a point.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
IN THESE inflationary times, the real Problem No. 1 for Canadian diplomats has nothing to do with protocol. It’s the problem of how to live on your pay and allowances, in a country where your money won’t buy as much this week as it did last week.

PAULA MASON was throwing a stick for her dog, Spot, when she saw the young man. Being definitely imaginary, Spot was anything Paula’s fancy lighted upon, but always thoroughbred and AKC registered. When she walked he was likely to be a Newfoundland, with coal-black hair and slobbering jowls.

IN INDIA the curtain now rises on one of the major dramas of history. In fact, the play is on. We are in the middle of Act Two, and a climax is in sight. The scenery is bewildering, the story is thunderous, and the atmosphere is tense. The cast is huge and various.

HOW’S your sense of humor? Do you break loose every now and then with a hearty, stomach-shaking laugh? If you do your chances of a long and healthy life are greater than if you are habitually solemn. Laughter isn’t only the result of good health; it can also be one of the causes of good health.

G. R. STEVENS
IT IS AN Italian flag of generous dimensions, which bears neither the shield of Savoy nor the red star which the Partisans feel to be more fitting. There was some talk among its owners of superimposing upon its fly a cutthroat razor rampant; but that would have been dubious heraldry.

IN WINNIPEG the name of Frank Selke is not a household phrase as it may be in Montreal or Toronto. But to have him disappear in broad daylight on the main street, as he did one morning not long ago, nevertheless was worthy of passing notice. Selke, the boss of Montreal Canadiens, had arrived in the morning.
