THE PICTURE of Canada and

forward also a picture of the two
in competition with each other.
"Canada will be seriously com-

the very near future," Bob warned.
"They will be seeking the same
international position, and the
same foreign markets.
"When this happens, there will
have to be a tremendous amount
of understanding between them.
They will have to appreciate each
other's viewpoints, and needs,
much more than they do now."

He was not quite sure that the
United States would be able to
accept a level of equality. But he
was convinced that such will one
day be the relationship.
The Canadian view of the United
States is a subtle mixture of an-
noyance and tolerance, the con-
viction of American hypocrisy
coupled with the realization of
American virtues. It holds the
promise of full understanding even
as it lashes angrily at our faults,
real and imagined.
Certainly Canada receives more
than her share of the American
influence. Through radio, televi-
sion, books, magazines and mo-
tion pictures, Canadians, even if
against their will at times, become
acquainted with American life.
And most of it they accept, pass-
ing over what they dislike with
the feeling that "well, those are
the Yanks. That's the way they
Bob's strongest words were di-
rected at America's "political hy-
pocrisy," even as he approved her
actual motives.
"The United States just wants
something out of the countries
she's helping" he protested. "She
talks about her high ideals, but
she's getting more out of those
countries than she puts into them.
"Not that this is bad," he went
on. "We don't have any objection
to her getting more out of some-
thing than she puts into it. After
all, she has to look out for herself.
"But why," he asked, "won't she
get down off her high horse and
admit it?"
THERE WERE, of course, other
complaints, and once opened,
Bob's box of protests spilled forth
a creditable array of contents. But
each new item carried with it an
extenuating circumstance, a polite
excuse for some boorish act. One
got the impression that he was not
merely being polite; in some way,
this was the manner in which most
Canadians often excuse all Ameri-
can errors.

MRS. ROSS had her own phobia,
and that was money - she
could never adjust herself to the
extravagant (to her) prices of
everything in New York, and
whenever she visited him, he had
to take thorough elaborate pre-
cautions in restaurants and hotels
to prevent her from discovering
the price of the meals she ate. Of
course, Ross never let her know
how much money he lost - or
even wagered and won - at his
favorite hobby, gambling. He was
an inveterate gambler, and al-
though he was never hard up for
money because of his sport, his
carelessness with it did help to
hurt him later in his career when
he was in the process of being
swindled out of a total of $71,000
by his private secretary, Harold
Winney. An entire chapter in the
book is devoted to the fantastic
tale of the man who took the
money literally out of Ross' pockets
and with his consent.
THIS CARELESS attitude with
money did not carry over into
his work on the magazine, though,
and he assiduously checked each
story, each piece for "Talk of the
Town" department, each cartoon,
for what he considered the "bath-
room and bederoom" references,
which he held untenable in his
magazine. If he ever okayed a
cartoon with a double meaning
for publication, he would groan
about it for weeks afterward; he
got in the habit of not okaying
any cartoon he did not fully under-
stand to be "clean."
The same attitude toward car-
toons and other magazine material
he carried over into the office and
staff relationships; he was con-
stantly swearing that he was go-
ing to "keep sex, by God, out of
this office," then adding, "Sex is
an incident." By sex, he included
handholding, goo-goo eyes, forni-
cation, adultery, the consumma-
tion of marriage and legal inter-

course. He would fly into conster-
nation if he discovered one of his
male staff members having coffee
or coke with a female, staff meni-
ber or otherwise; the incident
would be magnified in Ross' eyes
to the point where the male staff-
er was "spending all his time chas-
ing women." It takes two or more
women to surround the average
man, but "Harold Ross could look
as beleaguered as Custer in the
presence of one."
ROSS HAD three wives, but his
real - and the only lasting -
marriage was to the New Yorker.
One of his closest friends for a
time was Alexander Woollcott, who
introduced Ross to Jane Grant in
Paris, the woman who shortly
thereafter became his first wife.
Woollcott, Hawley Truax, and the
Rosses lived in a cooperative house
from well before the New Yorker
started until 1928.
Ross and Woollcott had a stormy
friendship. However, partially be-
cause of basic differences in per-
sonality and outlook, their friend-
ship eventually turned into a
rather intense and famous feud,
which alternated from one prac-
tical joke to another.
The feud, which was not resolved
during their lifetime, perhaps re-
mained to-worry Ross after Wooll-
cott died in 1943. In any event,
he said nothing to indicate that
he had ever changed his mind
about who was right and who was
wrong. Ross himself died in De-
cember, 1951.
