THERE ARK MANY Jews who have sworn never to set foot on German soil, in whom the fires of hatred lit by Hitler and his murdering gangs still burn with an unforgiving brightness. Not only Jews. The other day, a former McGill professor of economics told me he couldn’t stand German being spoken in his presence.By IRVING LAYTON, HORST EHRICHT
Time your arrival so that you get here in good time, but not earlier than required ... If you enter before the First Warning Bell, it must be for “good reason.” —Regulation Cl (d), Guide Rules For Students Kelvin High School, Winnipeg When Canadian students crept off whining to school this fall, they weren't to be late, of course, but they weren't to be early, either.By JON RUDDY
My Sixteen Months As A Nazi, by John Garrity with Alan Edmonds, indicates that the Canadian Nazi group can only grow if given attention. Covering the face of Maclean's with the Nazi symbol comes under the heading of giving attention and publicity.
LET’S SAY YOU happen to be passing through Paris, just jetting around the hot spots, and you decide to ring up Jean-Luc Godard on the telephone. You don’t exactly know old Jean-Luc — 1 mean, how many people really get close to the master of the nouvelle vague movement in French films? But you dial his number anyway, to say bonne chance, or how's the grosses with Alpltaville or something nervy like that.By JOHN BERNARD
bleed, break bones and spit out teeth, and shrug it all off as part of the game. Most of them live in terror of that one resounding wallop that can snuff out a lucrative career. And if they seem to casually dismiss lesser hurts—and a fractured cheekbone is a comparatively lesser hurt — it's only because they’re aware it could have been much worse.By John Robertson

I DON'T KNOW what, if anything, will happen when the country’s political leaders and economists meet in Ottawa to discuss inflation, but they'd better stop drawing those little pyramids of milk bottles that prove we're all better off than we were 10 years ago and start doing something about rising prices, fast.By ROBERT THOMAS ALLEN
The languid young woman, resting cheek against hand, is Susie Kosovic, a precocious (22) fashion designer, who has become to Canada what Mary Quant wasto England a few years ago. Susie brings to clothes a fresh and vital elegance, an uninhibited attitude to color, and a belief in craftsmanship.By MARJORIE HARRIS
THE PROTAGONIST of the drama acted out in the Supreme Court of Canada last month was undoubtedly Steven Truscott — the fresh-faced, pleasantlooking youth who has spent one third of his 21 years in prison as a convicted rape murderer. The nine blackrobed justices sitting sternly in their scarlet velvet chairs were the critics.By SHEILA H. KIERAN
NOBODY CAN ever be sure just at what point passive outrage turns into public action and triggers a revolution. For their own convenience historians select arbitrary dates and events: the storming of the Bastille; the Boston Tea Party.
