Beverley Baxter's LONDON LETTER

The Strange Case of Oswald Mosley

MANY people have endeavored to explain the English. For eight years I have tried in these letters to describe the changing scene in the old country and to decode for you the moods and paradoxes of this Island race.

SKYROCKETING prices and record catches have brought one of the most profitable years in memory to New Brunswick fishermen—and all despite the fact that fewer fishermen are setting gear.

BACKSTAGE AT OTTAWA

AN ATTACHE of one of the important legations at Ottawa was discussing the question of Canada and the Empire.
