Would Shear Bulgaria; Of Border Forts PARIS, Sept. 24. OT The Peace Conference Military Commission voted today to de-fortify the southeastern border of Slav Europe, adopting a Greek amendment to the Bulgarian treaty which would shear Bulgaria of frontier fortifications. The vote was 11 to even, with three abstentions. It came ai the Four Power Foreign Ministers' Council wai arranging to discuss Italian colonies and other disputes holding up the progress of the conference. On ISO-Mil Frontier. The proposition Is to demilitar ize Bulgaria's 180-mile frontier with Greece "to the same extent" as Italy's frontier with Yugo- slavja. Only Brazil and the Slav delegates opposed the move. The rote came after Canada had told the Peace Conference that she woald vote for the Big Four proposal to postpone decision 'on the future of the Italian colonies for one year. Srx-aktng in the Italian Political and Territorial Commission. Health Minister Brooke Claxton. leader of the Canadian delegation, said that the proposed disposition was "probably far from ideii but is the best solution on which we can hope to have agreement at this time-.

Bui n was ine one concerning the strike vote order-in-council which brought the most heated comment Harry O'Brien of Vancouver, representing the British Columbia Federation of Labor, said he felt the resolution should be brought back "with teeth in it". Then there would be no doubt of it receiving unanimous approval. "It has been evident for many weeks that the Government is prepared to assist the employers in maintaining a vicious system of wage control", said O'Brien, "Now is the time for labor to challenge the Government's right to perpetuate dictatorship Gov- ernment by Order-ln-CounciL" Dicuin the price control resolution.

Sees Another Depression. Pat Conroy, CCL. secretary-treasurer, predicted an economic depreciation if profits and wages were not readjusted. "This country produces so much that we must make an attempt to stabilize the system. We must lay down now a fundamental program." To prevent another depression the CCL should determine "there must be an immediate transfer of profits to wages". "As sure as night follows day, we are heading into another depression . . .

'Gazelle Boy' Fastest Human Captured By KAY SBORET. pAIRO, Sept 24 (BUP) Trans-Jordan's fleet "Gazelle . Bey, who reportedly can run SO miles an hour and is now acquiring a flash-bulb tan from skeptical photographers, was captured after a two-hour automobile chase, it was disclosed today. - Prince. Fawaz El Shaalan, leader of the famed Arab tribe that co-operated with Lawrence of Arabia, said he was hunting with group of friends when he sighted the strange youth. "We were hunting gazelles in the desert by car when suddenly I saw a human form among these gracious beasts", the Prince related. "I ordered my companions to cease firing and we set out In pursuit. Although we were In a car, it took us two hours to catch Hip with the boy who fell down exhausted. We immediately took him to one of the stations of the Iraq Petroleum Co., and there he . received first aid. Later he was taken to hospital' in Baghdad." Dr. Jalbout, one of the spe-' delists who has examined the boy. said: "I think he Is the fastest human on earth and he could have any record in the world. He acts, eats and cries like a gazelle. There, is . no doubt that he is a human being who was brought up by the gazelles after being abandoned by his mother. Bedouins often abandon their children In the desert". Hospital attendants said the 15-year-old boy seems torn between Instincts acquired in the desert and the normal feelings of a human being. They said he imitates everyone around him and that he has the curiosity of a two-year-old child. .During his first few days in the hospital, the boy- tried constantly to escape. One doctor said the "Gazelle Boy" has been an imbecile from birth. Another said his inability to speak results from the simple fact that no one had ever spoken to him before he was captured. At any rate, the boy so far has uttered only inarticulate sounds and nobody understands him. Soviet Reply Continued from Page One. In describing the "earliest with drawal" of all American troops from China as "vital" to future peace. Premier Stalin was making a "virtual demand" for such an evacuation. Most important of all was the Soviet leader's statement that atomic bombs were intended for intimidating "the weak-nerved", the informant said. In rejecting the weapon as a "deciding f actor" in future wars, Premier Stalin was replying to "certain politicians" by suggesting that Russia herself would soon have atomic bombs. Featured in Paris, PARIS, Sept 24. (Pl-Prime Minister Stalin's statement on international affairs to Alexander Werth received streamer headline treatment today by every afternoon newspaper In Paris, the site of the Peace Conference. None of them had time to comment editorially. Praised by Wallace. WASHINGTON, Sept 24.P) Henry A. Wallace, former United States Secretary of Commerce, said today that the foreign policy statements of Premier Stalin and Anthony Eden have brought hope to millions all over the world "who are hungering and thirsting for peace". In a formal statement in Washington, Mr. Wallace Said: "The morning press carrying statements by both Stalin and Eden has brought hope to those millions all over the world who are hungering and thirsting for peace. "Differences of opinion caused by various national responsibilities and viewpoints should not stop the search for a practical expression of the deep spirit of longing of all the people of all the nations for a permanent world peace. "When both Eden and Stalin seem to appreciate this necessity, I am encouraged to believe that the recent flurry is indeed proving constructive." Mr. Wallace's' reference to the recent flurry" apparently was an allusion to the evc.ts that led to his resignation from the Cabinet last Friday at President Truman's request , In a foreign policy speech In New York last September 12, Mr. Wallace advocated more lenient treatment of Russia, a view that collided sharply with State Secretary Byrnes' "firm" policies at the Paris peace conference. Eden Urges New Approach. Mr. Eden, former British For eign Secretary, urged in a London speech last night that a "new approach" be taken toward the Soviet Union by Great Britain and the United States. He made this appeal, he' said, because the present relationships contain an "imminent threat of war". Publishes Despatch. VATICAN CITY, Sept 24. m The Vatican newspaper, L'Os-servatore Romano, published the story of the written interview of Prime Minister Stalin prominently on its front page today and headlined the despatch: "Stalin declares that a danger of :war does not exist" It made no editorial comment KEEP BLUES AWAY.

H. Coleman, Undersecretary of State, is subjected to repeated queries from a confused public as to whether a certain holiday is "statutory" or "legal" and "since when did Easter Monday become a holiday?" There is no difference. Dr. Coleman patiently explains, between a legal holiday and a statutory holiday. The statutes simply setNout holidays which are "to be - observed throughout Canada", but the Dominion Government has no power to call for general observance of any day except Sunday. This it can enforce under the 'Lord's Day Act . Had No Grudge Continned from Page One. A post-mortem confirmed he died of a skull fracture and associated injuries to the brain. A small quantity of alcohol in the blood was not sufficient to indicate a degree of intoxication. Defence Counsel. At the close of the case for the Crown, M. J. Devine,-counsel for Farlette, moved the Jury be instructed to bring in a verdict of not guilty because of lack of evidence. He contended the evidence pointed to Farlette's innocence rather than guilt Mr. Justice Smil said 'he did not wish to usurp the jury's right to judge facts and ruled the trial would proceed. . - Marcel Choquette, a resident of the Albion Hotef, said he saw Maloney outside the hotel on the sidewalk. "He looked very irritated", he said. Maloney was trying to get In and Mr. Chenier would not allow him to. Maloney said he would wait outside for Farlette. He paced up and down outside, according to Choquette and "was looking for trouble all right to judge by his attitude". Farlette and Choquette were the only wit nesses called by the defence. In addressing the jury, Mr. De- vine said, "Maloney met his death through his own fault". Farlette was not guilty of culpable homicide and only acted In "self-protection and, In a reasonable man ner. . !

Date for trial, which will be in county court, was not set- At the conclusion of Pappin's preliminary hearing last week Magistrate Strike decided there was sufficient evidence to warrant committal. Parmin elected for arjeedv trial and the date was set for October 17. Bail of $3,000 was renewed. Registration Heavy For Night Classes First evening's registration for night classes at the High School of Commerce and Technical High School was exceptionally heavy last night At Tech 793 enrolled In the course of a couple of hours, and about the same number at Commerce. Tech Principal W. B. Wallen said that night students were "going strong for everything on the calendar". During the war years, dressmaking and sewing were the popular 'classes, he said, but this year people are extending their interests to all subjects, practical and at All the Dominion Government can do is close -banks and Government offices, !and while this usually is - done, circumstances may keep some Government of flees open on a statutory holiday During the last session of ParllB- ment, the Commons sat on Vic toria uay, tne lung s Dirtnaay and.

Game Warden Wayne Robinson and the RCMP received several reports of the bear's presence and yesterday afternoon Mr. Robinson and a humane society official began to investigate. It is against the game laws to-' harbor a bear without a permit and Mr. Robinson is unequivocally against permitting any bear in this district They found that Mr. Simpson had taken the bear to the small Hull Island in the Ottawa' river behind the Parliament Buildings. Later Mr. Simpson came ashore and told Mr. Robinson the bear was being kept chained on the island, in charge of a man. Since Hull Island is in Quebec province, Mr. Robinson could only notify Gene Audette, game warden in Hull. , Rainfall during the evening caused the man to seek shelter on shore and Bruin got away, swam ashore and started his wanderings.

Many Women in the oak-panelled courtroom paled and lover-ed their eyes when medical witnesses testified that Mrs. Gardner's body was lashed 17 times, bitten savagely and otherwise mutilated. Heath scribbled notes to his lawyer. A large frosted .glass skylight cast dramatic shadows on his face. Only 30 persons from the queue that began forming at midnight were admitted to the public gal lery for the trial. A crowd of several hundred formed in the street outside the bomb-scarred building. No Motive Alleged. The Crown has alleged no motive for the death of Mrs. Gardner, said by police doctors to have resulted from suffocation after "savage" injuries were inflicted. Should Heath be acquitted, he then would face trial for the slaying of Doreen Marshall; 21, former member of the Women's Royal Navy Service, July 4, near the south coast resort of Bournemouth. Police reported' lhat her nude body bore slashes on the throat and abdomen and "other horrible sadistic injuries". Canada Continued from Pace One. The near 16 million pounds was worth $1,587,225 and comprised 1,606,770 pounds of toilet soap and 14,263,943 pounds of all other kinds of soaps. The Canada Year Book for 1945 reports, on the last full statistical year available In 1942. that soap production ran 233,380,918 pounds, worth $25,-799,470. Exports, this year of 16 million pounds are for only seven months, and recently soap production has fallen due to the strike-shortage of soda ash and the tight supply position of fats and oils. The point of soap exports was raised by reports from Newfoundland that store shelves in St. John's were loaded with all the popular brands of Canadian cleansers. Newfoundland's share of Canada's soap exports, reported the BOreau, had run 1,394,449 poundk, worth $142,831. It sounded like a lot of soap, agreed an executive of the Prices Board who has a hand in setting export quotas, but Newfoundland's seven-month allocation of Canadian soap "wouldn't keep the city of Ottawa clean" over the same period. Because of its fat and oil content, distribution of soap, like that of sugar, comes under the control of the Combined Food Board, and export quotas in relation to domestic needs are fixed as between Canada and the United States. Bulk of the 16 million pounds exported so far this gone to European countries. Export of Shirts.

"We always encounter prejudice when we send a young woman to a charge", he said, "but despite this disadvantage, Miss Stewart did an excellent job." He was commenting on the report of the Home Missions committee presented by the Chairman, Rev. Charles Donald of Southmlnster United Church. The Presbytery approved the report's recommendation that Aylmer and Eardley, now worked as one charge by Rev. C. H. Dawes, be consulted with the view to their formal union into one pastoral charge. . Rev. Gordon Dangerfield of Britannia United Church was appointed chairman of the Ottawa West charge and asked to try to institute a morning service at the charge instead of an evening service. During the Summer Robert Blair, a student returning to Carleton College this term, was responsible for the charge, following the resignation of Rev. R. C. McConnell. The Presbytery congratulated Mr. Blair on the ability he showed to accept responsibility. Rev.
