HOW UNEDUCATED does a prospective immigrant have to be to qualify for entry into Canada? By the last count available at Ottawa, DP camps in Europe contain 1,600 doctors, 700 dentists, 700 chemists, 2,700 engineers, 1,000 foresters. Canada could use men from all those professions.

The Editors
THE Honorable Charles G. (Chubby) Power, author of our current masthead article, represents—in theory at least—an animal which has no right to exist. The Hon. Chubby has spent most of his highly active life getting in and out of the hair of politicians (including those of his own party, the Liberals) and his standing is still as high among politicians as among the voters of the riding of Quebec South, who have kept him in the House of Commons for 32 consecutive years.

HON. C. G. POWER
THE BANE of the modern politician is the certainty that if he departs in the slightest degree from the straight and narrow path of routine partisan activity, his actions are at once analyzed in a frantic search for hidden motives and inside stories.

Do Whistling Wolves Bite?
Are lamppost Lotharios a menace — or merely amusing in a corny way? The psychologists, who don’t get whistled at, aren’t alarmed

RAY GARDNER
ONCE UPON a time the wolf was merely a four-legged animal that went after Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother. But in this fifth decade of the 20th century the term is more often applied to the questing male with the low whistle and the high-speed line who isn’t interested in anyone’s grandmother.

JOHN JEFFREY SYMONS
HE STOPPED. That sound—like running feet pounding after him—nagged at his mind. The houses in the narrow street crouched over him. The people, the city—it is true, he thought, you can be most lonely in the city. A man, young, he wore faded blue jeans rolled up, showing high-cut boots.

BEVERLEY BAXTER
CLEMENT ATTLEE is looking for a modest, house in the country. No doubt he will find one, and acquire it, before these words appear in print. What is unusual about that? I am not quite sure. But it is, nevertheless, worth a moment's speculation.

THE MAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
AS PARLIAMENT opens, the attention of all parties is focused on the new Opposition Leader, George A. Drew. Progressive Conservatives are more hopeful, Liberals and CCF more apprehensive than they were even six weeks ago. During the December by-election campaigns, Liberals were gleefully contemptuous of Mr. Drew’s slam-bang tactics.

Bread’s Other Spread

C. FRED BODSWORTH
A FREIGHTER drops anchor off a South Pacific atoll and from the palm-fringed shore a copra-laden canoe fleet shoots out to meet it. In the rich clay bottom lands of Alabama, Negro share croppers pluck bolls of silken fibre. Far down on the edge of Antarctica the lookout of a British whaler shouts, “Thar she blows!” In a jungle clearing of northern Nigeria a native farmer cultivates his peanut crop with a forked stick.

THELMA LeCOCQ
THE pictures on these pages might typify any large Canadian hospital except for one point: Toronto’s Women’s College Hospital, the only institution of its kind in Canada, is operated and staffed entirely by women, and largely for them. As such it represents a mighty step forward from pre-World War I days when female nurses were shielded from male patients by a screen during operations.

LESLIE F. HANNON
IT’S SUMMER now along the great beaches of eastern Australia and hundreds of thousands of surfers get into the Pacific at every opportunity. The sharks are waiting out there, just beyond the breaker line. Every year the metropolitan newspapers of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane carry the screaming headline, “Shark Tragedy.”

EVA-LIS WUORIO
TWENTY-TWO years ago this spring, a quiet, rather timid Toronto girl created a fiction family whom she named the Whiteoaks. For habitation she gave its lusty, fractious members a red brick mansion called Jalna, locating it vaguely in the Southern Ontario farm country.

J. N. HARRIS
BACK in depression days, which I recall without the faintest tremor of nostalgia, I met a youth who called himself Forbes Radford. I met him in a Toronto rooming house, not far from the hockey gardens. In meeting him, I became party to a felony, or a misdemeanor, I don’t know which.

FRANK HAMILTON
THE United States senator on tour hadn’t intended to stop in St. Jean Port Joli, but someone told him the tiny old town on the south shore of the St. Lawrence held North America’s finest wood carvers, and the senator used to be a whiz with a jackknife himself.

TRENT FRAYNE
THE lady fiction writers would have a great time with Gerhard William Kennedy. Every time they sat down to describe a successful young sports-clothes designer as a rich, sophisticated, darkly handsome sportsman, an excellent shot, capable flier, expert golfer, they could just turn to Kennedy and they would be right on all counts.

ONE of the best dishes of French Canada is the “tourtière,” a meat pie made with pork or half pork and half chicken. It owes its name to the game bird that was the most plentiful and frequently eaten by the colonists in the early days of Quebec: the “tourte” or wood dove that is now extinct, but which used to land in myriads in the forests along the St. Lawrence River.

I wish to express my appreciation of the article“ If Christ Came Today,” by Beverley Baxter (Dec. 15). I always enjoy his articles but I think this one is the best yet. He has said what should have been said long ago by a man of his standing. He has placed the struggle in its true position, a conflict or a war against God.—N. C. Abercrombie, Vancouver.

ERNEST K. LINDLEY
The part of President Truman’s program which most surely faces rough sledding in the 81st Congress is the civil rights plank of the Democratic platform. The Southerners are now resigned to abolition of the poll tax —one of the means by which Negroes as well as many poor whites have been debarred from voting—and to a federal law against lynching, provided that it also makes possible federal intervention to bring to justice, when the local authorities fail to do so, those persons guilty of other forms of mob violence.

ONE OF our scouts, a Toronto man, has a thingamajig in his basement and a while ago the thingamajig broke down. Not only that, but the public utility outfit which installed and is supposed to service it remained impervious to repeated appeals for rescues.
