    The "Canadian Chronicle"

    February 15th, 1965

    Our new flag

    by Lynn Carroll

    The new Canadian flag was born today. It is about time that we had our own distinctive national emblem, many a decade has passed since we were anybody's "Dominion", English or French, and became a sovereign country with allegiance to none (As in the United Kingdom, itself, the Queen is merely a figurehead with even less power over our home-grown policies and politicians, than she has on her own ). The new flag itself, most aesthetes would agree, is of pleasing design, and distinctly Canadian in its maple leaf theme, with our national colours of red and white.

    It is the right flag for the wrong reason.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=+Cana...B4fLjwTT2ZjQBQ

    Lester Pearson, our current Prime Minister, is the man most responsible for the new flag. Over the years, many Canadians of power and influence have pondered the need for one that was distinctly our own, but never got around to it, since nobody in the world was objecting to anything that was anything to to with those nice polite generous Canadians, let alone a mere flag.

    But in 1956 when Mr Pearson in his role as peacemaker in the 1956 Suez Canal dispute, which won him a Nobel prize for peace, found that a handicap to his peace brokerage was the fact that his country's flag bore a segment - the Red Ensign - symbolizing Great Britain which was anathema, at the time, to one of the quarreling bodies, Egypt

    Mr Pearson was most receptive to their objections, but could do little about it, but won Colonel Nasser over, anyway. Mr St Laurent, our Premier at that time who ***could have done something about it, shrugged, and chose not to.

    But now, in 1965, Mr Pearson, is more impressed by objections by agitators from Quebec, who lose no opportunity these days to play the old harp of discord, in order to gain concessions from an English-Canada scared stiff that the Province will secede. These agitators complain that there was too much of their conquerors in the old flag, and Mr Pearson, apparently, has, once more fallen for their bluff.

    His misgivings about the old flag back in 1956 were justifiable for reasons of diplomacy. His refusal to listen to Mr Diefenbaker's reasonable suggestion that a referendum be held on the question, smacks of giving in to the usual French-Canadian blackmail.

    Our pride in our new flag, is diluted by how we attained it.

    The "Philadephia Courier"

    February 3rd 1965

    Gone from the Tribune

    by Dan Conway

    Yesterday, I was commissioned by the newspaper that has employed me for the past twenty-six years to write an article on the recent Mardi Gras parade with its homosexual theme. I looked forward to criticizing this exhibition of skewed sexuality, figuring that society has enough trouble with so-called "normal" men like clergy; coaches; teachers; fathers, even, molesting their charges, without our society celebrating and encouraging sexual deviation.

    After reflection though, I told the "Tribune" that my readers might deem me and the newspaper guilty of hypocrisy, in view of my own daughter's close friendship with another woman (although, as far as I'm concerned, it's nothing more than affectionate friendship, typical of a lot of females, with no sexual overtones, whatever). I therefore told the Trib that I wasn't comfortable with writing about the event, under the circumstances.

    They wrote back to tell me that the governing body of the paper shared that discomfort, but in spades - they fired me! Seems they feel I’m tainted by the friendship of my daughter for another woman...go figure.

    That puts a whole different slant on my view of homosexuality...up till now, I have always felt sympathy for guys who are genuinely afflicted with this abnormality, rather like I do for guys who can't quit drinking or smoking, although I am suspicious that some homosexuals have been "groomed" into their present condition by unscrupulous homosexual "mentors" who hold some position of power or authority over their prey.

    But my advice to homosexuals would be "If you are that way afflicted, keep it under your hat, don't do it in the streets and alarm the tourists (or the governing body of the Chicago Tribune), and , especially, do not influence the kids to take up a highly undesirable, not to mention, inconvenient, lifestyle"

    For while society generally regards drunks, gamblers, gorgers, and other compulsive addicts with amused tolerance, it tends to freak out about homosexuality. Any hint of that in a person, or his nearest and dearest, and that person becomes a pariah. Lillian Hellman illustrates it well in her play "The Children's Hour"

    Ironically, some people knowing my thinking about homosexuality deride me for being "homophobic". They would probably call my being tarred with the brush of guilt by association as "Poetic Justice"

    Whatever, I shall continue to express the view that if one is "gay" (as is the euphemism that homosexuals use to describe themselves), don't ask, don't tell, not only for your own sakes, but for that of society, as well. I regard homosexuality as a creeping disease, rather like that of Communism, or any other trendy ism. Let's not spread it around, lest it infiltrate and infect our Western society , currently solidly built on natural sexual liaisons whether in marriage common-law or intimate friendship.

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    December 11th 1964

    Toni Lung writes from Hong-Kong to Jacy Conway in London

    "Dear Jacy
    Thank you for your nice letter. Please forgive that I did not soon write to it. My thought was that I would like to send you a Christmas card. This is not appropriate to send too soon, so I delayed.

    You sound very interesting. I believe from you I could learn much, and if you are interested in Japan, you could know it from me. It is ironic that our family lives in Hong-Kong which belongs to your English country, but will go to China in 1997. Three countries.

    My father is business man here, he imports and exports, and we are very rich. I have a young brother, Anthony, he does not like the name but father says two "Tonys" in a household would confuse. He is a good brother, though most extravagant. He has lovely sports car, I forget name but it goes like whizz, and is coloured red.

    We both have been bred to look after ourselves. Father is generous, but only rewards us if we achieve. Anthony is learning the family business with father so father rewards him more, because my brother works hard. I am not rewarded much though I think father likes me best, but I don't tell Anthony this because it would heart him.

    I am lazy woman, ha-ha!, no ambition. I am content to grow nice so that men will like me. But I want to be good for women and children too, so when I learn much, I think that I will try to work as teacher

    I earn my living now as a stewardess on Hong-Kongair. This helps my Geisha studies in my spare time because I have to influence many passengers, all are temperamental, all are stressed by travel, men women, children of many ages, it is good training.

    I hope that my writing is not too small. I bought a big card specially to accommodate a lot of words not to show off how I am rich ha-ha!

    Please write soon, I love your cockny writing.

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The London "Daily Mirror"

    February 28th 1965

    Some changes made

    by Chatty Cathy

    There is an old song called "There'll Be Some Changes Made", and that was certainly true of February...I'll start you off gently, People, with some minor ones. Cassius Clay, the new heavyweight boxing champion of the world, who's even mouthier than yours truly, has declared himself to be a Muslim with the new name of Muhammad Ali; Dan Conway, the longtime American non-interventionist disciple of the late Anglophobe Bobby McCormick and his "Chicago Tribune", has parted company with that newspaper, since Conway's daughter, Augusta "Gussie" Conway took up with another woman !
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    Conway, senior, who's almost as mouthy as me, will still have a rostrum to bellow from; the multi-millionaire owns his own newspaper the sycophantic "Philadelphia Courier". Come to think of it, that paper won't have to scrounge around much for news, the Conway family which owns it, creates enough gossip of its own. Gussie, herself, besides liking someone in skirts, is a one- woman hydra head who sometimes wears a baseball cap, sometimes the dunce's cap of a singing stooge on television, sometimes the thinking -cap of a qualified engineer.

    Her mother, my old friend, Lynn Carroll,(who’s dead straight, by the way, dunno about Pappy Conway), the longtime columnist for newspapers and commentator for the BBC in this country, is back in her native land, stirring the shindig amongst the placid Canadian populace, with her diatribes against the French-Canadian province of Quebec. Lynn also she had some goes against the changing of the Canadian flag from the Red Ensign to the Maple Leaf.
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    There were the usual sad changes due to death and derangement, we losing to the Grim Reaper, two disparate but equally memorable entertainers in Stan Laurel and Nat"King" Cole, plus - or , rather, -minus - Malcolm X who was assassinated.
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    But the most significant change of all during the month of February, occurred in Viet Nam where an impulsive President Johnson ordered retaliatory bombing of targets in North Viet Nam, after some American "advisory” troops were fired upon. This escalation means that the American "advisory" action in Viet Nam has now become a war.

    Ho-hum, here we go, again.

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    February 1965

    Augie's Canadian career

    A
    Augustus Conway lost no time in getting established in Canada. Once he had the notion to emigrate to that country, he had studied the literature put out by the Canadian Ministry of Immigration in Great Britain, and had been impressed by its emphasis on the desirability of immigrants immersing themselves and integrating with Canadian society, from the get -go, being willing to work hard, obey its laws, pay its taxes.

    He had no English work experience that could readily launch him into the Canadian job market, having been a lifelong student during the first22 years of his life in Britain, although having a certified teacher's ticket, there was, at thet time a surplus of teachers min Canada, so he gladly opted for the job of standby waiter for the Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.) dining cars which rolled from Vancouver to Winnipeg and back over a four-day period.

    Being a stand-by was a spotty occupation, dependent upon absenteeism in the ranks of the regular staff, and the bookings of the travelling Canadian and tourist public. At the maximum peak of demand, in the summer months, as many as 50 waiters might be employed during every week of warmth, but in the depths of a Canadian winter, no more than a skeleton crew of 20 or 30 servers might be required weekly, nevertheless, Augie, found enough lucrative work to pay the bills (the Canadian cost -of-living being far below that of England, as its quality of life he found, also to be far superior), filling in for ailing or otherwise absent regular waiters, alcoholism being a chronic feller of would-be workers, due to the stress of having to pack a minimum of 44 working hours into four days on a rocking swaying noisy train feeding something like 200 hungry passengers and railway staff with three meals daily. The C.P.R waiters agreed amongst themselves that catering on trains had to be one of the toughest jobs in the food and service industries

    A totally inexperienced Augie was further handicapped by having little interest in food, and seeing absolutely no need for waiting -at-table at all, given the ease and convenience and economy of helping oneself at smorgasbords. However, he overcame all his disadvantages with one over-riding virtue...the British-born Conway actually*** liked his customers, so different from the average male waiters as regarding his "employers" with derision and despite.

    He was delighted to find Canadians so affable, generous, and approachable, none of the snobbery and stuffiness evident in the British culinary industry, and they, in turn, were beguiled by his cheerfulness, enthusiasm, and cut-glass English accent which seems forever to charm native North Americans despite the numbers within their ranks who speak with it.

    After a few weeks, a notice appeared on the C.P.R.s bulletin -board advertizing a vacancy for a permanent position as third waiter on Steward Graham's crew, which had the most unpopular time-slot of all, working every weekend from Friday afternoon to the following Monday afternoon. As soon as Augie saw the notice, he realized that it was an opportunity to "work steady", so he put in for the job.

    There being no competition for the position( apart from slogging away all weekend , Steward Graham was reputed to be a stern taskmaster), Augie landed the job at which he worked assiduously through the Canadian winter, gradually learning how to gain a minimum of efficiency, and quite a hoard of bucks, although the pay was low, his personality and charisma earned him a small fortune in tips.

    The only drawback was the lack of time to court Lee. He was off from Tuesday through Thursday, but to supplement his income, he took a night-time job serving beer at the Astor Hotel three nights per week, so he hardly saw his inamorata who also worked five days per week at her job in the Supplies department of the Vancouver City council

    However, his appeal to the customers, and his zeal in serving beer, in time, led to an offer of full-time employment at the hotel beer-parlour, where the hours were more regular, the work less hectic, and the opportunity to court his lady-love more open.

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    "Post-haste!"

    Jacy replies to Toni's card, immediately on December 17th 1964

    "Dear Toni,

    Your card arrived in such good time, that I think that I can get this off in time for you to get it for Christmas. I don't believe in sending cards, even though I've made a bomb already, selling them (I try to write as I talk, so if there's anything which you don't understand, you can always ask me about it).

    I'm sending you something far more lovely than a card - a photo of me ha-ha! (We say hardehar over here, when we make a joke). Would you like to send one of yourself sometime, you sound like a lovely woman, cant wait to meet you, do you ever fly to England?

    I forget what I wrote in my last letter, did I tell you that i've got my own shop in which I flog all sorts of things, newspapers, fags, sweets and chocolate. I am doing very well, I even employ two women, I bet I am richer than you, hardehar.

    My dad, mother, brothers and sister have all left me to go and live in North America, shows how popular I am, don't it, hardehar.

    you sound like a very intelligent woman so I know that I can tell you that Jacy stands for the initials Julius Ceasar which is what i was named at birth (Thats nothing - my brothers and sister have all been named after the time they were born in August and Valentines day). That's why I learned ju-jitsu during my schooldays, taking on all those yobbos who laughed at me and my family, and as you can see from my beefcake picture, I am very strong, in between customers I lift weights behind the counter.

    From your piece thet you wrote in the mag, I know that you are interested in British politics, and you may have read that our new Prime Minister, Harold Wilson is a clever man who has promised that his Government would sort out a lot of problems in its first hundred days, he's looking at a lot of.major economic problems , as well as lots of strikes, workers here take dead liberties, knowing they won't be sacked because there are so many jobs going begging.
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    In his election campaign Mr Wilson threatened to soak the rich and give to the poor, which is the usual Labour guff,so I didn't vote for him because I work hard in the shop for my money, and I take many financial risks in running a business, so why should I be soaked to keep some layabout in beer and fags? I must admit he's done some good work, already. He's going to knock prescription charges on the head and abolish the Rent Act, that'll help our poor old pensioners out.
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    He promised to establish an Ombudsman, that's a sort of referee to sort out quarrels between various people. I don't like that free vote on hanging that he promised, we should let well alone, you take someone's life, you forfeit your own, I say.
    https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

    Well I won't bore you with too long a letter, write soon please, and meanwhile I hope that you and your family have a very happy Christmas!

    Cheers,

    Jacy."

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    U.P.I.

    March 16th 1965

    Queen reconciled with Wallis Simpson

    by our Court correspondent

    Yesterday, her Majesty the Queen reconciled with the Duchess of Windsor, (nee Wallis Warfield Simpson), nearly three decades after the American divorcee eloped with the Queen's uncle formerly King Edward VIII, who thereby was compelled to abdicate his throne.

    The Queens councilors must have advised her Majesty that Edward's illness and surgery, warranted such a reconciliation, and the meeting between Queen and the Duchess took place at the Duke's bedside at The London Clinic. The 68-year-old duchess curtsied to the queen, w ho is half her age and the Royal trio talked for 25 minutes, ending 28 years of bitterness and ostracism by the Windsor family towards the Duke's marriage.
