THE TRAVEL EXPLOSION: now everybody’s going places

THE TRAVEL EXPLOSION has grown from a postwar cliché into one of the major phenomena of modern times. Never has mankind moved around at such a rate in such numbers. Places that used to be as remote as the moon have become spots to visit on a two-week holiday, and are advertised like new movies.
THE PLEASURES OF FAILURE 1213

THE PLEASURES OF FAILURE

THE ATTITUDE OF MEN enjoying success to those who are failures has always fascinated me. Businessmen in particular grow uneasy in the company of someone they can see is on the way down. They seem to feel a little chill in his presence; a reminder that success is a slippery pole.

The prickly producer who makes theatre grow where none grew before

JOHN STEPHEN HIRSCH is a volatile and sometimes irritating thirty-four-year-old theatrical director who is passionately convinced that every city and town in the country should have a professional theatre. In Winnipeg he's already created the Manitoba Theatre Centre, one of the liveliest resident playhouses in North America, as a result of which some other towns have already asked him to help them plan theatres to be ready for the 1967 Centennial.

Ken Johnstone describes the brilliant comeback of a derelict: Montreal’s Vieux Quartier

In the middle of the greatest building boom in Montreal’s history, with skyscrapers and high-rise apartments mushrooming up almost overnight all over, a desperate battle is being waged by a small band of well-heeled, hard-headed but nostalgic citizens to preserve that living but badly battered link with the past - the “Old City.”

Should murderers hang? / Maybe our schools have not even caught up to yesterday / All about Town

THE BURDEN OF your editorial (Now We Have A Chance To Abolish Capital Punishment. Let’s Not Muff It With Sentiment.
