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.By BENGE ATLEE
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.By LESLIE McFARLANE
Patrons of the “Galleon of Panama” café are surprised one night when JUDITH SALTMARSH, a girl of evident refinement, enters the squalid place. Eyebrows are raised still higher when she asks for SLIM DRISCOLL, a well-known adventurer of the South American hinterlands who, having just lost a small fortune at the gaming tables, is down on his luck.By ALLAN SWINTON
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. What are our aims today-in this fateful late summer of 1940?By R. M. FOWLER
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.By A. Beverley Baxter, M.P.
REPEATED sickness, and an unfortunate business venture, resulted in debts of over $1,200 being contracted by a middle-aged clerk in an Ontario city. In his dilemma he turned to loan agencies of the shark variety and paid as much as eighty per cent per annum for money.By LESLIE GARDEN
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.By A POLITICIAN WITH A NOTEBOOK
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.By W. D. DODD
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. He thought of a young officer he had admired in the Great War and who had become half Battery Commander and Professor of Tactics at the Royal Military College, Kingston.By M. GRATTAN O'LEARY
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.By HELEN G. CAMPBELL
