IT'S BEGINNING to look as though those impetuous souls who thought the recovery of the Canadian dollar was a good thing have branded themselves as economic illiterates. As an occasion for national rejoicing it seems the comeback of the buck rates right up there with the Rimouski fire, the Winnipeg flood and the foot-and-mouth epidemic.

Beverley Baxter
ON June the second next year, Queen Elizabeth will be crowned in Westminster Abbey. Once more we shall gaze upon the genius of the English for pageantry and hear the trumpets proclaim yet another coronation in England’s long story. I am aware that I have used the word “England” but have done so deliberately.

BLAIR FRASER
AT ELEVEN o’clock one evening last August Hon. Brooke Claxton, Minister of National Defense, left the Ottawa Country Club where he had been host at a state dinner for U. S. General Omar Bradley.

TROUBLES OF A ROYAL DRESS DESIGNER
When an ex-hardware salesman named Hardy Amies designed a stunning gown for a society bride it caught the eye of a queen-to-be. Now every woman wants to know what the Queen will wear and Amies finds it’s no cinch to be custodian of the Greatest Secret in the Realm

MARJORIE EARL
HARDY AMIES, the Queen's new dressmaker, is a buoyant, handsome, youthful-looking man of forty who counts himself lucky that he was born a diplomat. In less than a year upon the pinnacle of British dress designing he has learned that running a business after royalty has bestowed the accolade of its custom calls for more ways to parry a question than the Communists use to perpetuate peace talks.

ALBERT LEFEVRE
SIR ENOCH BELLINGWAY died at the most inappropriate moment of his life, about half a year after the end of the First World War. As head of the C.M.K. Gold Trust, one of the Big Six of South African gold mining, it would have been his task to convince investors in England and on the Continent that there was sufficient gold in the Orange Free State to elevate the purchase of shares in his companies from a gamble to an investment.

EARLE BEATTIE
THIRTY-TUREE years ago, long before most people had ever heard of Joseph Stalin, thousands of Canadians were fear-stricken for six uneasy weeks in the belief that Bolsheviks, boring from within, had captured their third largest city of Winnipeg and were preparing to take over the whole country.

ST. JOHN'S.

MAYBE it doesn't matter so much whether this particular tent caterpillar story is true or false. Its importance lies in the fact that scientists, who are notoriously quick to debunk any yarn that sounds like blarney, have been telling it for ten years and they’re still wondering if it could be true.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN: The fumbling courtship of o ballad-loving American steno (Kim Hunter) by a high-minded Balkan immigrant (Jose Ferrer) is often both touching and hilarious in this pleasant comedy. BOOTS MALONE: Few rac#-track movies have been more solidly interesting than this one, although customers who demand "luv" in every picture will find nary a smooch from opening shot to fadeout.

Helen Harrington
The gossip is a kind of mean, Unpleasant carping bore. She is the sort of person folks Will tell you they abhor. They’ll tell you they dislike her for her nasty innuendo, For stabbing in the back the one Who’s always been her friend. Oh, Folks will tell you what she said, And what was said when she said And, hurrying to block her news, They sometimes help her spread it.

As a missionary to Hong Kong visiting in Canada, I take this opportunity of complimenting Maclean’s and Dr. A. Stewart Allen for the article, 1 Was a Prisoner of the Chinese Reds (April 15). While living in Hong Kong I was a member of a group of missionaries who gathered together every Friday to pray for the release and safe journey of Dr. Allen and Miss Ward.—Rev. John Bechtel, Nyack, N.Y.
