Cheer up, girls, help is on the way

Canadian women are exploited by employers, discriminated against by the taxman, patronized by the schools and bored silly by family life. Right?
This small-town barber isn’t any smarter than you are. But he’s a part-time land speculator, and soon he’ll be worth $400,000. You could do it too 2223

CARMAN’S BARBER SHOP is a one-chair establishment in Aurora, a town of 10,500 with no apparent beginning or end on Yonge Street 25 miles north of Toronto. The proprietor, Carman Minichiello, is 34 years old, stocky and amiable. His English is a-pretty good and his eyes are like ripe Salerno olives.
EMERGENCY! 2021

EMERGENCY!

WEIDMAN HANGS UP the phone at the nursing station. He looks down the corridor and sees them pushing the stretcher through the waiting room. By the time they reach the glass doors he is already there. The ambulance attendant is struggling to lug along the portable Heart and Lung Resuscitator Unit and keep the mask on the man’s face.

CONGRATULATIONS on Dr. C. Wellington Webb’s A Consumer’s Report on Canada's Top Universities. In his ratings chart (The 20 Best Campuses), however, he might have mentioned that the proximity of the Public Archives, the National Library, the Supreme Court Library, and the libraries of various government departments give the graduate student at Carleton University opportunities for research far beyond that of students who have only their own university library to call upon.

How Canadians are infiltrating Hollywood

“WHAT I REALLY NEED,” Saul Ilson was saying from behind his desk, “is a sign out there in the hall saying YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE CANADIAN SECTOR.” That seemed fair warning, in a way. After all, not everybody manages, as I did, to penetrate Ilson’s third-floor fortress there in Television City, Hollywood, and discover that one of the brains behind The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour is a shy, dark-haired gnome who keeps a picture of Lester B. Pearson and a Canadian flag, side by side, on his office wall, and a hockey puck on his desk.
AUSTRALIA 1213
SPECIAL REPORT

AUSTRALIA

AUSSIES LOVE TO TELL JOKES and sing drinking songs. It’s expected of them. One joke I heard on a recent trip back there equates the attractiveness of the ages of women to the continents of the world. The punchline, about the oldest age-bracket, has it that they are like Australia— everyone knows where it is but nobody wants to go there.

JOHN VERNON HOLLYWOOD CAME TO HIM

The most incredible thing about the above scenario, of course, is that it really has happened, all of it, to the former Raymondus Adolphus Vernon Agopsowicz, now John Vernon, better known as Steve Wojeck, originally of Zehner, Sask., currently of Toronto, and imminently (he has every reason to expect) of Hollywood.

The best—and worst—films of 1967

“HE’S A PRO—he’s beautiful.” This phrase alone, a tribute from a younger gun to old hand Lee Marvin, marks Point Blank as a movie made in the year of the flower children. Never before would a compliment from one tough guy to another be worded this way, and probably never again.
