Low-Rent Housing There : is nothing mysterious or strange about Mr. Fleming's refusal to gfve the, provinces more money at this time. - The money is not there. , y , ," Mr. Fleming could only give the provinces more money now by going out and borrowing it; by undertaking a stijl higher deficit. f The provinces, no doubt,-could use any additional money that Mr. Fleming might give them some of them, In fact, have already mortgaged whatever they might get.

Dr. Bush has a very dim view of modern life and specially of modern education, and he goes much farther than we would in condemning the "American Way of life" as meaning "shallowness and shoddiness", and saying that "intellectual and aesthetic cultivation is 'a mark of pernicious Snobbery". However there is a quotation from Robmt Frost in Dr. Bush's address which we are grateful for: It is known that as early as 1772 a visit to Christie's was regarded as an essential duty for the woman who wished to be in the fashion. .
