The powerful gifts and glaring flaws of JOHN DIEFENBAKER

THE POLITICAL CONVULSIONS of the last few weeks — the embittered cabinet resignations, the attempted coup d’état, the sudden fall of parliament, the calling of an election which few voters really wanted, and the rowdy campaign that has followed — all these events have left many Canadians disturbed and baffled.

BEAUTY AND THE BUCK

CANADA HAS EIGHTEEN national parks, a number of them the most beautiful to be found anywhere in the world. They are among the most precious national resources we have, or so I and many other people believe. But we are losing them at an alarming and accelerating rate.

James Beard's $30 Cooking Course

JAMES BEARD IS A GENIAL, well-fed professional gourmet who regards with more sorrow than anger — but with considerable anger nonetheless — the indifferent food foisted on North Americans’ palates and stomachs at home and in restaurants.

THE NAUGHTY BUT NICE NEW COFFEE HOUSES

DURING THE EARLY Thirties I was an outstanding figure at such famous London night clubs as Ciro's. Brummell's and Romano's.

HOW WELL DOES KENNEDY RUN THE USA?

WHEN THE MONA LISA was in Washington in January, people lined up for blocks, often in bone-chilling weather, waiting to get into the National Gallery. Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, one of the treasures of France, ordinarily hangs in the Louvre in Paris.

JUDITH KRANTZ HAS WORDS WITH THE MAN WHO INVENTED WOMEN

FOR YEARS NOW I’ve wanted to have words with Roger Vadim, the notorious French movie director who is credited with — and accused of — having invented a new kind of woman. Sometimes she is warm, an “erotic hoyden”; sometimes she is hot, a “sex kitten.”

VIOLENCE AND DEATH STRIKE ONTARIO’S QUIET NORTH COUNTRY

KAPUSKASING is a tidy, prosperous little town. The houses are small, but solidly built. The stores have modern glass fronts and sell, mostly on credit, fine quality clothes, furniture and home appliances.

Why Dave Keon is the "best” player in hockey

THERE is AN ADAGE in sport that “nice guys finish last.” Nowhere is this rule said to apply more specifically than in hockey. The March 9 issue of Maclean's, in fact, carried an article by the former National Hockey League referee Red Storey to the effect that some of the most important (important to winning, that is) players in the NHL are the ones known as “policemen” — men who are paid to chase men instead of pucks.

MACLEAN’S REVIEWS

ROBERT FULFORD

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT we elect next month, if we do elect one, will eventually find itself dealing with several important problems related to culture. It will be faced, for instance, with a National Gallery which has fallen on hard times — its staff demoralized, its reputation in ruins, its programs and influence drastically curtailed.

MACLEAN’S REVIEWS
