OUR MAN IN SAIGON

A MID ALL THE brutal violence, the harsh insulting language and the shrill cacophony of war which makes Vietnam the most explosive trouble spot on earth, a man you have probably forgotten (if you had ever heard of him) is officially charged with keeping the peace.

The righteous crusaders of THE NEW LEFT

They’re not the hippies who’ve withdrawn from the world. And they’re certainly not part of the Establishment, which in fact regards them as a bunch of scruffy idealists, butting in where they’re not wanted. But they may yet do something other reformers before them have never done: succeed
THE SPORTS ESTABLISHMENT 2021

THE SPORTS ESTABLISHMENT

It runs sports, sportsmen and (whether they know it or not) the spectators. It’s snobbish and arrogant, with rites, rituals and rules—mostly to keep outsiders out. It’s a moneyed tyrant with all the appeal of an off-side call on a scoring play. So what else is new? The fans actually seem to like it!
THE MAN WHO COPYRIGHTED PASSION 2223

THE MAN WHO COPYRIGHTED PASSION

Irving Layton believes in premarital sex, life, love and Irving Layton. He may, or may not, be Canada’s best poet. But while the critics and public damn or praise him, he pursues with happy vigor his garrulous, fractious, strident career as

RICH LITTLE alias just about everybody

Just four years ago, Rich Little was playing $30 office-party dates in Ottawa. Now he’s the world’s most successful mimic, grossing about $100,000 a year, conjuring from a cardindex memory 126 dead-on impressions of the famous. With the world by the larynx, he’s got only one fear—Playboy bunnies

THE TIP-OFF SEATS TO WATCH IN THIS ELECTION

HOW AND WHEN, on election night, do we begin to know which party has won a general election in Canada? For five and a half hours on the evening of November 8, while the polls close region by region through the six time zones from Newfoundland to the Pacific Coast, election betting will be the fastest game in Canada.

What’s wrong with bare thighs? / The right to die / Foreign doctors and a homegrown spy
