IF IT observed the formalities this editorial would be enclosed in a black border. In the severe and narrow sense of that narrowest of words it concerns a death — the death of Lieutenant-Colonel John Bayne Maclean. It’s our feeling nevertheless that the magazine to which he gave his name cannot, in simple reality, concede the death of John Bayne Maclean.

BLAIR FRASER
PROG. CONSERVATIVES were put in a cruel dilemma by the three Quebec by elections, October 16. They got out of it with dignity and courage, though perhaps at some cost in votes. In the past, PC failure to contest Quebec ridings has often been attributed to political cowardice.

BEVERLEY BAXTER
THERE has been considerable criticism of the Duke of Windsor for breaking with tradition, at any rate British tradition, and writing his memoirs for publication during his lifetime and for a very high fee. It is perhaps only fair to state that the criticism has been stronger in the Dominions than in Great Britain.

I FLEW IN OUR NEW JET FIGHTER
The first reporter to fly in Avro Canada’s CF100 twin-jet fighter tells you what it’s like at 10 miles per minute in the perilous atmosphere, and gives you a chilling preview of war in the new air age

RONALD A. KEITH
THE BLACK AIRPLANE with the needle nose rose like a rocket over Hamilton. Four miles above the city the pilot rolled the twin-jet gently over and set course for Toronto, 40 miles away. We were there, right over the heart of the city, three minutes and 40 seconds later.

ST. PIERRE, the merry little port that was a reservoir of liquor in the daze of American prohibition, lies just 12 miles from Newfoundland’s Burin Peninsula and 70 minutes by air from Sydney, N.S. It is the capital of the Territory of the Isles of St. Pierre and Miquelon, the oldest and smallest possession of France.

BURT SIMS
THEY called it the Sunset Island Beach Club. Jim Conway, at ease in the canvas chair on his little white tower, yawned at a wheeling, yawking sea gull. It wasn’t an island; it was a pure white curve of private beach; adhesive tape rimming a quiet arc of blue Pacific.

When the boom struck Redwater (pop. 160) what the town needed most was everything. And all it had in the bank was $732. Here’s how Mayor Len Walker and his council coped while the population jumped 20 times and the problems spurted like gushers

EARLE BEATTIE
THE 65-year-old mayor of the village of Redwater, Alta., a Cockney farmer by the name of Len Walker, abruptly danced a jig behind the desk of the Redwater Hotel. His Worship, who is also desk clerk at the hotel, had just answered the phone. “That was Imperial Oil,” he announced to the small group in the lobby.

IN THE winter of 1924, just after my 16th birthday, I turned professional and began to earn my living, theoretically, as a boxer. I quit my job running an elevator in Vancouver. Pop Foster, my manager, quit his job as a stevedore on the Vancouver docks and we went to San Francisco.

How To Get Rich Selling Houses
In 1946 Ernest Ridout left his milk wagon to grab a ride on the housing boom. With a weak heart and the gift of the gab he set out ringing doorbells, put himself on top of the real-estate heap. And he’s still only 31

McKENZIE PORTER
ERNEST RIDOUT, a 27-year-old milkman with blond hair, blue eyes and a grin like Mickey Rooney, finished his round in Toronto’s east end one day in 1946, came to the conclusion that he was in the wrong business and said farewell to his horse. Although he had been making a comfortable $80 a week on commission delivering bottles, Ridout had a hunch that the postwar real-estate business was going to boom.

ERIC NICOL
IT WAS while in London recently that I first suspected my need for a new suit. In Piccadilly one day I dropped a farthing through a worn-out pants pocket and bent down to pick it up. When I straightened up I surprised a young woman in the act of primping in the seat of my trousers.

THE SHMOO OF THE COUNTRY
Canada’s caribou is a real department store on four legs. He provides food, clothing, heat, weapons, even salad. Yet all the recognition he gets is his face on the back of a coin

WHAT the prodigal shmoo was to Li’l Abner’s comic strip world the Barren Ground caribou is to thousands of Indians, Eskimos and whites in Canada’s far north. Though he can’t, like the shmoo, produce butter, eggs and milk on a moment’s notice the caribou provides an equally varied menu including salad.

CLYDE GILMOUR
BEAVER VALLEY: Walt Disney's second wild-life short is just as delightful as its predecessor, "Seal Island." It's not a cartoon, but an expertly edited outdoor yarn about a solemn beaver, a greedy coyote, some screwball otters, and other beguiling characters.

JUST who does this Burma Gentner, Lawrence, Mass., think she is? In Sept. 15 Mailbag she writes about not having to borrow from England—then she says England never pays her debts and she hopes Canada will eventually be in the U. S. A. Canada is not a possession of England to be given away to pay debts either real or imaginary.

WE DON’T want to sound too much like one of those choked-up voices in movie previews but we are proud to present Edna Staebler again with a story about the island of St. Pierre on page 8. We’re proud because we think it’s a good story and because Mrs. Staebler won the Canadian Women’s Press Club annual award recently with an article about Old Order Mennonites which appeared in Maclean’s on April 1.

A GOOD Samaritan motoring up the Orangeville-Fergus highway in Ontario recently encountered a Model T Ford stalled right in the middle of the road. Pulling up he called to the old fellow who was out front cranking, “Wanna push?" The old-timer straightened up, spat, rubbed his hands together and replied, “Nope, she’s gotta learn to take the crank!”
