You Can Make Your Government Save
by HARRY J. PRICE
Ir it has done nothing more, the personal victory of Britain's King George and Queen Elizabeth on their triumphal tour from Quebec to Vancouver and east to Washington has served to throw into a well-deserved limelight that giant Dominion to the north of us.
While most scribblers were prone to emphasize the fact that the Canadian Pacific liner, Empress of Australia, on which the King and Queen voyaged, was a former German vessel (as if that fact were of paramount importance to the royal tour), we thought the choice of this famous ship was a great gesture to draw attention to the vast size of Canada's transportation system.
You can circle the globe, for example, on the Canadian Pacific system and never leave the property trains, hotels, and vessels of the C.P. And the Canadian National, in addition to operating its famed trans-Canada railroad system, covers the Caribbean and the Lesser Antilles to the north coast of South America with fast, comfortable liners especially built for tropical voyaging.
These latter are the famous "Lady" boats-Lady Nelson, Lady Rodney, and Lady Drake; and from Montreal and

One article or a hundred, for that matter couldn't convey to you the delights of Canada's scenic grandeur or of her perfect blending of the Old and New Worlds in cities, people, and customs. A description of the pleasures awaiting the visitor to the St. Lawrence, the Province of Quebec, the Saguenay, or the Gaspé alone would fill pages; and so also would any attempt to cover even briefly Ontario, the Thousand Islands, the Rockies, Banff, British Columbia, or Vancouver.
Whichever is your choice and whether you look for rest and relaxation or for scenery and sport, you'll not be disappointed.

All over the country, feverish Republicans are digging frantically for likely Republican politicians who might conceivably, someday, lead the G. O. P. back to its one-time national pre-eminence. Thirty-oneyear-old Harold Edward Stassen, Governor of Minnesota, is one of the most promising of these "white hopes." Here a fellow Minnesotan gives him the once-over. IN MEDIEVAL JERSEY J. L. Brown
You probably never heard of the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufactures. In that case you will be surprised to learn that it is a corporation (familiarly known as the SUM) which owns some four million dollars' worth of real estate in northern New Jersey, which has been operating tax-free (!) under a special State charter since 1790, and which is so powerful that it has charged certain New Jersey cities sums ranging up to a million dollars for the privilege of using the natural waters of that part of the State for public purposes. This fabulous monopoly has paid dividends of 120 per cent and more to its owners, yet contributes exactly nothing to anybody else.

The answer, large and portentous, is
Mary Donald was reared in the most deadly New England piety, and she moves through the whole pattern of devout faith, rebellion, and the beginning of a new devotion. But, because Mr. Frank is a great craftsman, the pattern stays subordinate to his characters. Mary, her family, her husband, her expanding world have extraordinary vitality.
THE quality of gentleness that distinguished Millen Brand's first novel, The Outward Room, pervades his second, The Heroes. Here again are people who live in a world shut off from the rest of mankind war veterans in a soldiers' home. Mockingly they call themselves "heroes," now trying to conquer their little tempers and their narrow despair. With all the irony of its title, this is a story free of rancor. The dreams and the fortitude of plain people make up its substance and stay with you for a long time.
As good as a surf dive is Wickford Point, by John P. Marquand-better, maybe, because it lasts longer. Anyway, it is cool and salty satire and excellent entertainment. In it you meet the Brills, once a mighty family of seafarers, who have gradually shucked off everything except their pretentions. At them and their satellites Mr. Marquand does some witty dart throwing, telling at the same time a story that rolls along in the best smooth-paper-magazine tradition.
