LIBERALS may think it's none of our business, but we hope they choose the Rt. Hon. Louis S. St. Laurent as leader of their party next month. Since the leader they choose will become the Prime Minister of Canada, we consider that it’s the business of every Canadian—and that includes a politically independent magazine such as this one.

EVER since the entry of Newfoundland into Confederation was suggested last year, we have been in favor of it. We think it would be of undoubted benefit to Newfoundland; to Canada it would bring no material advantage, but it would strengthen our nationhood and complete our geographical integrity, and these things are worth the dollars they would cost us.

ONE GOOD healthy way to spend a vacation would be to drive across Canada—easterners heading west, westerners east, and getting to know each other en masse. In a scattered country like ours, the more such intermingling we can get the better.

The Editors
WITH this issue, we're dusting off a swivel chair and the biography of one of our favorite writers to welcome W. O. (for William Ormond) Mitchell as the fiction editor of Maclean’s. Mr. Mitchell’s arrival coincides with a local population shift in which Ralph Allen steps up from associate editor to managing editor; John Clare switches from fiction to articles editor; and Scott Young, articles editor during the last two years, embarks with our regretful adieus and hearty good wishes on a full-time career of free lancing.

Amherst, N.S., has long been proud to send “brains” to Ontario to help manage Canada’s seat of government at Ottawa. And now (advertisement on page 64, Maclean’s, June 1) the Canadian National Railway appropriates Beauty (with capital B) to call attention to the lure of Ontario’s summertime lakes.

The Unhorsed Galahad of Montreal
Why did his bosses fire Pax Plante, the crusading cop who snuffed out the red lights and had the gamblers on the run?

STUART KEATE
ONE DAY, not long ago, a little British automobile rolled up to the tollgate of Jacques Cartier bridge across the St. Lawrence at Montreal. The French-Canadian attendant extended a casual hand for the ticket. Then he did a remarkable “double take.” When he recognized the lean, bronzed, bespectacled man behind the wheel he stooped, peered intently at the driver for a moment, and then chuckled:

HOW THE U.S. BUNGLED PALESTINE
In its search for votes, oil and bases against Russia, Washington has treated Palestine and the U.N. shamefully, declares this writer

SUMNER WELLES
THE POLICY of the United States in the case of Palestine has been devoid of vision and devoid of principle. It has been devoid of principle in that justice and the struggle for freedom of a bitterly afflicted people have been prostituted to the shabby exigencies of local politics and of powerful domestic interests and subordinated to the influence of militarism.

KAY WEBSTER
HIS VOICE over the telephone was thick and soft as fur. It was always like that when he had been drinking. “How are you, baby?” He was a long way yet from being drunk, but the beginning was there in the slow, deliberate shaping of the words. “I’m fine,” she said.

Are We Growing More Cruel To Our Children?

SIDNEY KATZ
IN NAPANEE, Ont., on Saturday, March 20, 1948, the woman living in the flat next to Mrs. Dorothy Wheeler made a hurried call to the police. “The kid next door is being beaten to death,” she shouted into the telephone. “Please come quickly.” Policemen pushed their way into the apartment, shoved aside Mrs. Wheeler and the man she was living with, and found little four-year-old Donald Wheeler, beaten and bruised, cowering helplessly in a corner.

THE battering ram smashed against the coke oven door and the flaming mass of coal, transformed into blast-furnace coke, poured in a glowing stream into the waiting quenching car. A pillar of bursting flame and red smoke jumped toward the night sky.

We Broke All the Rules

V. MARY LOVE
FOR ONCE in our lives we've broken all the rules and got away with it. That was our conclusion after reading Max Braithwaite’s instructive article, "How to Pick the House You Buy’’ (Maclean’s, April 1). His advice is sane and sensible; he sounds like all the lawyers, bankers and architects rolled into one.

DURING THE war a strange and somewhat startling letter came to the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg from a farmer in a rural area of the province. He claimed there was hardly a man over 45 years of age in his district who was capable of doing a full day’s work.

BRITISH COLUMBIA'S campaign to prevent citizens trying their luck in raffles and lotteries ran into some bad luck itself when a jury of 11 men and one woman acquitted Sidney Welsh, a Vancouver Kinsman, of conducting a lottery. Mr. Welsh was chairman of the Kinsmen carnival committee, which had set out to raise $100,000, half for food for Britain and half for local charities, less 15% for expenses and prizes.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
EVER SINCE the late William Aberhart smote the Philistines in 1935, Social Credit victories in Alberta have been taken for granted. This year the betting is still on Premier Ernest Manning’s Social Credit Government, but the result is not quite such a foregone conclusion as it used to be.

MY PA legged it across the pine floor of his carpenter shop to where Ma's six unfinished chairs stood. “Tommy,” he said, popping a peppermint into his mouth and grinning, “a smart man will consider the lesser of two evils ahead of the importance of a job sometimes.”

FAR BELOW us, silhouetted by a glittering sea, was a little boat with a figure swaying at the top of her sailless mast. I drove slowly to watch her idle motion. Suddenly a man ran on to the end of her bowsprit. For a moment he was suspended, then he lunged forward from the waist, poised with an arm extended, recovered, paused for an instant and dashed back to obscurity in the hull.

WITHOUT a word, Ann handed a letter to Joe over the supper table. Joe took it. "What's this?" he asked, swallowing a mouthful of mashed potatoes. He ran his eyes over it rapidly and gulped. “Holy smoke, baby, this is marvelous.” He looked at her with delighted eyes.

IN 1915 a small blue-eyed Canadian girl was making her theatrical debut in the singing chorus of a London revue called "Not Likely.” The young lady felt bored and repressed with the sweet sentimental nonsense she had to sing. One night she slipped onstage dressed as a man and adorned with a fierce regimental mustache.

The Solution—During the filming of a comedy, the director wished to get the effect, of water being poured out of a barrel on to some boards.” They tried peas on oiled paper and that wasn’t it; they tried dropping pins on a taut square of silk and that wasn’t it.
