THE FIGHTING DOCTOR WHO LIVES FOR CHILDREN

Crippled children, Thalidomide children, hungry children, children scarred by napalm in Vietnam - they’re all the concern of Gustave Gingras, a doctor, a fighter who becomes “almost a con man” when he’s campaigning for kids

THE AMERICANS WHO VOTED WITH THEIR FEET

SAUL LASKIN’S LAKEHEAD: FIRST OF MIDCANADA’S SIX BIG CITIES

IT GETS COLD at the Lakehead. But it’s an almost joyous kind of cold, for it brings the snow-mobiles whizzing out of people’s backyards and down the snow-clogged streets, as thick as bicycles in Amsterdam. Besides, four of the best ski slopes in Ontario are within 20 minutes of downtown, and every discount store stocks snowshoes.

MACLEAN’S INTERVIEWS

CLARENCE CAMPBELL

When you first see him, Clarence Campbell, 63, President of the National Hockey League, gives off all the excitement of a Sunday-school teacher on a wet afternoon. People who think not badly of him consider him inoffensive. Others see him as somehow sinister:

THE WORLD'S QUIETEST SUNNIEST REVOLUTION

ONE OF THE HAPPIER fringe benefits of a Caribbean holiday is that, whether you spend a lot of money or not very much, you can always use your trip as a status symbol. If you’re rich, the object of the game is to find the most swinishly overpriced resort in the entire western hemisphere, and then come home to marvel loudly to your friends about the prices.

THANK YOU for the new-size Maclean’s. At last I can read in bed without the damn thing flapping in my face. BEVERLY JOHNSON, CAMPBELL RIVER, BC * Less bulky, portable enough to slip into a pocket or a briefcase, it confines the contents to more meat and less extraneous paper which, in these days of 100-page daily newspapers, is a relief beyond description.

WHO'S THE RICHEST PERFORMER IN CANADIAN SPORT?

“I WANT TO LIVE comfortable,” says Hervé Filion, superman of the trots. “I think if I make six more years like I been doing I’ll be a millionaire. I’m working on it anyway.” Which is a magnificent understatement. Filion, 28, married a year and due to become a father about now, has made more, faster than most people in the exploding harness-racing business.

A NEW VISION FOR THE NEAR NORTH

Richard Rohmer's big idea for the next century: develop Canada’s north the way Sir John A. Macdonald strung together the south

PAULINE JEWETT

Who’s being hired to teach in our universities? Foreigners, mostly. We used to be short of qualified Canadians. Now we’re turning out many more of them; but we don’t give them jobs

6 CITIES WITH THE STARS IN THEIR EYES

ONE OF THE MANY things you lose sight of when living in a city, as most of us do nowadays, is the sky. It isn’t the stars in your eyes; it’s the streetlights and the neon and other ersatz glitter. Even people who live in the country and can see the sky properly rarely contemplate the stars that dance in the heavens and let themselves be awed, swamped, by the thought of Eternity.
