ON THE second day of this February, the Nova Scotia Legislature is celebrating an anniversary in which it and all Canada takes a just pride—the centenary of responsible government. On that day a hundred years ago, a ministry took office in Halifax which depended for its existence not on the favor of the Governor, the Queen’s representative from overseas, but on the confidence of a majority in the Assembly.

TENTATIVE plans have been announced for the beautification and general improvement of Canada’s capital— not only the Ontario city of Ottawa, but also the Quebec city of Hull, which lies across the river. To give effect to these plans, or any like them, will cost the Canadian taxpayer a good deal of money.

IN A recent Gallup Poll Canadians were asked, “Do you think Canada needs immigrants?” From 51% of those polled the answer was a flat “Yes.” Another 11% said, “Yes, if they’re of the right type.” Only 30% said “No,” and the other 8% were undecided.

The Editors
THE great blizzard which held New York in its icy grip or paralyzed mighty Manhattan, depending on what newspaper you read, did neither of these things to Beverley Baxter who docked there the day before Christmas. The man who writes our London Letter battled the knee-high drifts of that frappéd and slightly jaded junction for two days and then briskly took off for Canada to get away from winter.

Your article “Are They Better Off Dead?” (on euthanasia, Maclean’s, Nov. 1) is the solution I have been looking for. What else can a cripple do, especially in my case where I am also a widow? I have been in a wheel chair for four years (all the calcium gone from my bones) and I have lost the struggle of making my own living, having been robbed and cheated by people who could walk.

THE WOMAN who shared the end seat of the streetcar with us was the biddy type, placid of face, comfortably pneumatic as to figure. You knew her house was a home and that she was “Nana” to a swarm of small fry. She had been casting frequent glances our way and now she smiled at us, a trifle apologetically.

W. G. HARDY
CANADIANS have always thought of their hockey teams in the same way they think of the Rockies—as something superlative, unassailable and fine talking points when boasting mildly in front of visitors. So they are alternately annoyed and puzzled when they hear we are not sending our best amateur team to the Olympic Games this month.

STARTING the first of this month, Rt. Hon. Clarence Decatur Howe will have more power over the Canadian economy than has ever been exercised in peacetime by any one man. Even in wartime it has not been exceeded. As Minister of Reconstruction and Supply, Mr. Howe is in charge of licensing the import of capital goods—things like machinery and structural steel, vital to the expansion of any industry.

LOUISE WAS a good little girl. She had fat yellow curls that hung down neatly on a smooth white neck. And her hands were fat, too, and clean, and folded always so carefully on the desk in front of her. And she spelled her spelling right and was always first in arithmetic and never got blots on her compositions.

THIS IS the year of a national election— for the Presidency, the House of Representatives and one third of the Senate. This fact will influence everything important that is done in Washington until the first. Tuesday in November. A psychological change occurs among the politicians of all parties with the arrival of the calendar year of a presidential contest.

TODAY I feel in a reflective mood, induced perhaps by a good log fire and the example of my Aberdeen terrier “Max” who has turned over on his back and gone to sleep. Winter has come with all its sullenness and threats but the miners are working well and we may escape t he disasters and some of the discomforts of last year.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
LIBERALS face the resumption of Parliament in better spirits than they’d dared to hope for two months back. They gathered in December expecting to be torn limb from limb for what the Government had done in the dollar crisis. After a fortnight of contrived and blessed dullness, they went home jubilant.

Mass exile from B. C. is just a bad memory to Canada’s Japanese — a memory they try to forget as they begin life anew

PIERRE BERTON
KEN KITAMURA, a cheerful, voluble Japanese Canadian who runs a lunch counter on Yonge Street, Toronto, thinks of the exodus of 23,000 of his people from the West Coast as an Act of God. To him, the largest enforced mass evacuation in Canadian history is “a calamity—like a fire or a big storm or an earthquake.”

CAPTAIN Donald Kenzie Maclver had been aboard the seagoing tug Fire Island less than two hours when we knew what manner of a man he was and what our voyage to the South Pacific would be like. This was made clear to Olegard, the chief mate, myself and Arvetti, the third mate, as we stood uncomfortably in the skipper’s cabin when he called for a conference with his deck officers.

I AM IN LOVE with Miss Allyn McLerie, a Canadian girl with big blue eyes, chestnut bangs and a dancing and singing talent which is carrying her to stardom in Broadway show business. This passion constantly rouses in me a great jealousy, for between me and Miss McLerie stand a few obstacles . . . such as her husband, my wife, some thousands of show goers and even a few drama critics.

GEORGE H. WALTZ
WHATEVER you ate today, you dined on stored sunlight. The energy in your breakfast cereal once shone on fields of grain on a bright summer’s day; the animal that supplied you with the meat for your dinner got his energy from grass or corn which in turn got it from the sun.

RICHARD CROSSMAN SIX MONTHS ago I thought that there was a chance of Russia and America settling things peaceably. Now I cannot see how war between them can be avoided. Not immediately, of course, but in five or six years.” These words, spoken to me recently by one of the ablest members of the British Cabinet, sum up the prevalent feeling in well-informed London circles.
