THE GREAT pity of Ottawa these days is that so much of its action is backstage. Canada's greatest news story is not being told. Not being told, at any rate, with clarity, or with appeal. Ottawa is held by a veritable army of occupation. Generals and Colonels seem as plentiful as stenographers; technical advisers and consultants throng offices and hotels and clubs; orders pour out daily, swinging factories and mills into streamlined production; plans are completed in weeks whose details in normal times would have consumed years.By A POLITICIAN WITH A NOTEBOOK9 min
CREAMED dishes have a hundred and one variations—most of them economical and all of them good.
