A forgotten race is overtaken by the jet age

LATER THIS YEAR the largest of the world’s few remaining isolated populations will plunge, timorously but not unwillingly, into the jet age. Until 1965 the thousand inhabitants of Easter Island, sixty-four square miles of volcanic rubble that thrusts unexpectedly out of the South Pacific two thousand miles west of Chile, have been linked with the twentieth century almost wholly by an annual supply ship that brought out the elementary necessities of life and, inevitably, an epidemic of civilization’s diseases.

He’s too rich to be cautious, too popular to be fired

DR. MORTON PHILIP SHULMAN, a forty-year-old general practitioner with the intense good looks of an emaciated Ben Casey and the mind of a Wall Street whiz kid, is so rich he doesn't need the $173 a week he gets as chief coroner of Metropolitan Toronto.

Will charm spoil Susan Dexter?

I STOOD BEFORE the heavy pink-and-black door of a charm school — one of those mysterious establishments that have burgeoned in the last few years and, across Canada and indeed through much of the world, rake in enormous sums of money peddling that elusive and intangible commodity, glamour.

W. O. Mitchell on THE KANANASKIS

“THIS PASS I have called Kananaskis Pass, after the name of an Indian, of whom there is a legend, giving an account of his most wonderful recovery from the blow of an axe, which had stunned but had failed to kill him, and the river which flows through the gorge also bears his name.”

THE FIRST COMING OF MICHAEL US

WHEN MICHAEL BITTERMAN wandered into a cluttered, four-room office above a barbershop on Toronto's Yonge Street one day last April, his ambition was modest: all he wanted was to establish a new world order based on God’s Universal Law. But in that office, where he went in search of a telephone answering service, Bitterman met a sort of public-relations man named Joseph Nelson, who quickly convinced him that it’s important to Think Big.
