THE LONG, HAPPY LIFE OF LESTER PEARSON 1011

THE LONG, HAPPY LIFE OF LESTER PEARSON

It was the best possible day to interview the prime minister of Canada. It was April 28 — the day after Expo 67’s sneak preview — and Mike Pearson, like everyone else in Montreal that day, was excited and almost childishly proud.

IS THIS MAN ALREADY THE MOST DANGEROUS POLITICIAN IN CANADA?

TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS ago, as a five-year-old waif with enormous eyes and even larger pantalons, he was photographed waving a Union Jack on the occasion of a royal visit to Quebec.

RETURN TO A KILLING GROUND-25 YEARS AFTER DIEPPE

WHEN HE WENT BACK to Dieppe in April, Brian McCool remembered the beach as being smaller than it really is. But then he only saw it the once— on the morning of August 19, 1942. That day one company of German infantry, plus gunners firing from the cliffs, blockhouses, an old castle and barricaded seafront hotels, so dominated the beach they were able to knock out three battalions of the Canadian Second Division, and tanks as well.

THE MEETING GAME

THE MEETING GAME, as any confirmed old spinster of 23 will tell you, is the toughest part of the mating game. How to meet The One. Every year more young Canadians are finishing their education and moving into the big, fluid, impersonal cities, alone.

You don’t think I collect all this junk just because I like junk, do you?

I WAS AWAITING my Vancouver-flight call in Honolulu when I saw a friend sauntering along, lugging a chunk of wood about the size of a three-by-three, four feet long and richly dark. I’d once seen the things on sale at the flying-boat landing stage at BoraBora and if you whacked them hard with a stick they’d give out a loud and melodious thonk.

MACLEAN’S REVIEWS

The rapid $50 advance of Canadian publishing

DON’T SELL THE television set yet, but an exhilarating spirit of adventure seems to be sweeping through the previously calm, cautious, uncommitted world of Canadian publishing. The publishers are shedding many of their eccentric 19th-century attitudes and groping for a new image.
