Dust on My Shoulder

GIVEN his own choice, Kent Power would neither have lunched at the Mount Dennis Club-which was full of stuffed shirts-nor with Harry Fanshawe-who was no better than he should have been. But you go to school with a fellow, you keep running into him here and there down the years, he invites you to his club to talk business-and you don't despise him quite enough to refuse.

Grandpaw Foglesby’s Leg

THE STORY of how Grandpaw Foglesby broke his leg has often been told in Wakeville, and if you live in Wakeville there is no sense in reading any farther, because you are probably pretty sick of hearing about Grandpaw Foglesby by now. And about his leg.
El Dorado 1617
FICTION

El Dorado

Patrons of the “Galleon of Panama” café are surprised one night when JUDITH SALTMARSH, a girl of evident refinement, enters the squalid place.

Design for a New Dominion

Part Four-Conclusion WHAT DO Canadians want most today? I am not concerned about what we wanted as a nation in the distant days of last May, before Germany invaded Holland and Belgium; nor about what we may seek to achieve in some future and happier day.

Beverley Baxter's LONDON LETTER

STRANGE things have happened in this war and are continuing to happen. Some of them are mere surface events, as if the gods were indulging in an ironic jest. Others go deep and will have their influence on the development of the world long after hostilities are over and Hitler has ceased to trouble the world.

Backstage at Ottawa

WHO IT was who first thought of that permanent joint board of defense for Canada and the United States, nobody here knows. Mr. King, no doubt, has written it all in his famous diary, but what Mr. King writes in his diaryguarded closely in his library on the third floor of Laurier House-is probably more detailed than what he tells the press.

Invasion Threat — 1588

SPANIARDS, Italians, Walloons, Germans, Flemings and "Fugitive English," crowded French and Netherlands channel ports (one of them Dunkirk) just 352 years ago, itching to get at England's throat, and waiting for the Spanish Armada to come and relieve the blockaded ports and convoy these armies across the Channel.

ELEVEN YEARS ago Major-General (now Lieut.General) "Andy" McNaughton, then Chief of the General Staff, decided he wanted somebody to study and report upon the defense needs of Canada.

Green Grow the Salads

WHAT YOU need for the perfect salad is some properly prepared ingredients, chosen for their harmony of color and flavor and put together with an eye to the general ensemble. Start with perky well-dried greens, crisp fresh vegetables and the right dressing, then, if you don't overgarnish, the combination is likely to be as hand søme as it is healthful.
