John T. 'for typical) Canada. Only now Is he really learning the hard lesson of war, but what he is learning may be a foretaste of what his I American cousin may be in for, later on. •John considered himself something of an isolationist even after Canada got in the fight. He didn't believe war could affect him directly, except financially. The British Navy and the Royal Air Force would Bee that no bombs dropped on his home, that ho machine guns stuttered death down his street, Then came that lino in the casualty lists: ''Royal Canadian Navy ' -—Able Seaman John Manchester —missing., believed killed." i It, bolted John Canada into re- I aliiy. Young John was his nephew. ' his namesake, his godson. He had been' born on , the western prairies, the most unwariike -spot in the world. He had been born after the return of his father from the Great War. And now young John had gone , down fighting on his little Cana- ! dian destroyer. John's brother Harry was in' the Canadian Active Service Force, I somewhere in England, .standing yuard. The husbands of John's three sisters were in the army and air force- John's people were cer-! binly doing their bit. * j John Canada reflected. Here in' Canada.the war had seemed .so remote. Canada had frit she should spring to arms when thc blitzkrieg •started. She fell more intensely about it than her way of living in Canada and the United States ran in parallel lines, t happened a I ways This time it was the other way around. WHAT—NO ORANGE .HJICE?

On a car priced at the factory at.
