anything about noth ing The big businessmen shook their heads negatively when they came out They did not speak but permitted the Hopkins an nounced version of the gathering to stand If they had spoken

wil Royal Visit to Canada Is Successful By WEBB MILLER ABOARD THE ROYAL TRAIN ONTARIO ENROUTE visit of George Sixth and Queen Elizabeth to Canada succeeded in its objectives far beyond the fond est hopes of the king the British and Canadian governments and their advisers A source In daily contact with the king told me that the king himself is constantly astonished and delighted by the outbursts of obviously unfeigned loyalty to the crown by millions and the en thusiasm for the royal couple Attain Main Objectives The principal objectives of tlie 16064 mile journey the longest and most arduous ever undertaken by a reigning monarch have all been attained and surpassed Foremost I think among the positive results of the royal swing twice across the dominion are Firstly firm reintegration of Canada with the British common wealth of nations Secondly the commencement of phase of a more dynamic con eption of the role of the consti itional monarchy in empire and omestic affairs Prestige Is High Thirdly a sudden enonnous ar umentation of the personal pres ge and popularity of the king anc ueen throughout the empire anc D as s e prce m provision to foster protect and turn and plunged down
