Who Is Sylvia?

THIS WEIRD commercial interlude began literally with a breeze—a quisling breeze that wafted through the open window of our Gopher Gap teacherage dining room, a frigid reminiscence of bygone snows. I sneezed. “You’re getting another touch of ’flu, Holloway,” Marcia cautioned me with wifely solicitude.

A Briton Speaks Out

AS THE end of the year 1942 approaches the British people are permitting themselves the unaccustomed luxury of being rather angry. True to the British character which is essentially paradoxical this bout of anger synchronizes with the first ringing of the church bells since 1940, the magnificent victory in Egypt, and the tremendous Anglo-American coup in Africa which, in one bold stroke, hurled the Axis powers from the offensive to the defensive.

NORAH McCARTHY is a pretty nineteenyear-old girl from North Bay, Ont., who makes almost as much money as the Prime Minister—and draws larger audiences than most prime ministers are fortunate enough to attract. Until May 7, 1942, Norah’s net earnings were a basketful of medals won for amateur figure skating.
