FLOOR prices for farm products sound like a good idea. After all, the farmer is entitled to some security. Nobody wants to go back to the days when the price of wheat was so low that a farmer’s net return for a season’s crop was less than the freight charges to take it to market.

WHEN the United Nations San Francisco Conference opened in April, 1945, it was timed to go on the air at 4.30 p.m. A crowded theatre waited in silent boredom while a juke box played “Lover Come Back to Me.” At 4.29.30, U. S. Secretary of State Edward Stettinius and the heads of the other Big Five delegations walked on stage; precisely at the stroke of 4.30, Mr. Stettinius brought his gavel down.

OUR teeth have been so firmly clenched with envy that we were afraid we’d never be able to tell you about the official opening of the new Maclean - Hunter mechanical plant, nine miles north of the downtown Toronto buildings which house our editorial and business operations.

THE QUARREL
Winner of the $1,000 first prize in Maclean’s Story Contest
[no value]
[no value]
ERNEST BUCKLER
DO YOU know what quarreling is like between a man and a woman to whom the language of quarreling is an alien tongue? When you go outside from the kitchen afterward, if you are the man, the leaves wave absently in the movement of the August air that is more heat than breeze; and everything you work with, the fork or the scythe or the handle of the plow, sags, heavy to the touch.

PARIS (By Cable)—Last June, Louis St. Laurent, then Canadian Minister of External Affairs, advocated in general terms the creation of an Atlantic Union in which the United States and Canada would join with the nations of Western Europe in the confederation of defense.

THE HANDS on the ancient clock above the grubby brick façade of the Toronto Evening Telegram building stood at 5.10 p.m.—well past the hour when Tely reporters like to brew their afternoon tea. Upstairs, 450 employees of “The Old Lady of Melinda Street” waited and fidgeted.

BEVERLEY BAXTER
SAMUEL BUTLER claimed that there were few things more pleasant than to be just ill enough to stay in bed for a couple of days. He commented on the pleasing activity of others in the house, the rhythm and routine of household tasks, the intervention of the front doorbell, the treadmill of steps upon the stairways, the dwindling day and the coming of dusk . . . and all going on while one stays in bed, reading or writing or dozing in complete detachment from the day’s activities.

Flax and Potatoes: the Farmer’s Orphans

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
EVEN in these booming times of high food costs, Canada is beginning to feel the kickback of floor prices for farm products. Because export markets were suddenly shut off in 1948, Ottawa has had to buy some 12 million bushels of flax, by spring may have to buy up to five million bushels of potatoes, and doesn’t know what to do with either.

The Starling — Saint or Sinner?
Despite fire hoses, fireworks, stuffed owls, moth balls and radio jive, the controversial starling has changed an immigration to an invasion

C. FRED BODSWORTH
CANADIANS have tried everything from moth balls to cannon in their war against the starling. Despite their efforts, this doughty European immigrant has swept across the continent as far as the Rockies, a tidal wave of black feathers, to become North America’s most numerous (latest estimate: 85 million) and, currently, most controversial bird.

BLAIR FRASER
CANADA is three years behind the United States in television and seven years behind Britain. In New York last month I sat before a TV set and watched Arturo Toscanini conduct the NBC Symphony Orchestra in the Mozart G Minor Symphony. Every gesture, every change of expression on the old man’s face was visible.

McKENZIE PORTER
IT WAS in Cairo just before the battle of El Alamein that I first saw Nina Fedorovna and Jimmie Biggs. The Egyptian capital was then in a flap. The night spots were still fawning on British officers but secretly ordering swastika flags to welcome the Afrika Korps.

MR. AND Mrs. Michael Palmer of Grand Rapids, Mich., were honeymooning in Vancouver a few weeks ago and I met them at a party. Right away Nancy started asking me questions about Vancouver’s Chinatown. “It must be fascinating,” she said. “I understand it’s the biggest Chinatown in Canada and second only to San Francisco on this continent.

IN WINDSOR, ONT., in 1924, a number of people gathered at the funeral of a friend who was believed to have died of flu. Within the next two weeks, some of the mourners became violently ill with what was found to be malignant smallpox. When word of this got about, Windsor was in a panic.

JUNE CALLWOOD
RADIO’S Howard Cable, who some claim has sold his soul for a mere fortune, has been considered one of the music trade’s leading boy wonders for the past seven years. This is quite a feat, since boy wonders at best are a transient crew and Cable, conductor, composer and top-flight arranger, is now a ripe 28 years old.

IN THE year 1803 William Conolly, a young Irish clerk in the service of the North West Company, who ultimately became a Chief Factor of the Hudson’s Bay Company, married in the Rat River country in the West a Cree maiden named Suzanne. They were married, as the phrase went, “according to the custom of the country”— that is, without book, bell, or candle.

COAL can be had for the taking this winter in Lillooet, where the stuff normally costs $25 a ton. But you have to bring your own truck.
