MAi- 8, 1940 Na/i ^E 11 ? Troo l )S Tip-loo Into Action ('ARK.)' COUKIER NEWS Mailer Of Bcsl War Participation And Post-War I I'ogram Involved By JOHN AMftOU Dulled 1'ress Slal! Coirc.i|i3tulent O'JTAWA. — A double-barrelled problem will face parliamentarians when they assemble here on May lli lo consider how the Dominion can continue in the W ar most effectively. Along wilh de-.-idiug what is Ihe most, telling means of participating in combat, they must lay the foundation for the hazy ai:d seemingly distant post-war period. looked upon a.s the principal industrial reservoir of the empire, Ciinnda is foreseen as liaviii" a particularly ivi-oblemnUral manufacturing .slliiiilion when Ihe war is over. The fiuc.stion of wlial lo do with the government armament plants is already being raised in government offices. Wliea tlicre is no more call for war supplies, it is figured thai- billions of dollnvs worth of Canadian machinery will be useless. ICxiiaiision (jo*s i'cinvuril At present., the growth ol wai faclorics has evidently not reached the point in Canada where it must be restrained. New plants are being erected throughout the country and both Britain nnd Canada are nursing them along to the maximum extent of tlieii funds. While Britain already is spending approximately $1,200,000 daily in Canada on war supplies, the Dominion is planning in the current year to spend about $1,300,000 n day ou its own accord. The man who probably will have to answer most of the cpics- tions on the present and post-war Industrial problem, provided lie holds lo his present portfolio, is Munitions and Supply Minister C D. Hoive. By the time parliament opens, the now department should lie well on its way into a mir.iltel survey of Canadian manufacturing ' resources. It will have examined, especially, second-line industries which, according to reports, the government is intending lo assist by leasing them government-purchased machinery. More Oollav-u-Year Men In settling the problem, Howe will have tiie assistance of an increasingly large number of expert dollar-ti-year men whom the gov- i — - eminent Is gradually appointing These will bs workli;.- in closest' <|1V1 5 10 ! 1 .-went to Augusta awl third cooperation: with the., wartime honors <° Newport. boards now established, priiici Stepping cautiously Icrs afler Nazi The Domtaas terminal of the vital Domoaas-Ktocrcn railroad i-nntrni t* .n the cent,,, .or.egiau eampai^n, German ». g H c ±,T m. and to have Junction of Mazl fo™ s frou, T rouclhcinl [llui Oslo llic ran line. pally, the wartime prices and trade board - which already has 'devoted considerable, study lo the fundamental industrial picture in Canada. Another minister who is due for much time on the Commons floor is Defense Minister Norman Rogers. With Canadian military and air units starting their parade across tlie Atlantic, and the-pace of (lie British Commonwealth' air | rtaining plan quickening, Rogers is expected lo have a busy lime narrating the country's defense progress. The recent division ot the department into military, air and iiivval sections, each supervised by an associate acting deputy mjii- ifler, should help Roycre fcecp his figures and fuels in order. But as the suggested system of appointing wictcr-scci eta tics to do the talking in f'arliamtmt has not yet madn much headway, i key ministers such as Hoivc aiiti,' Rogers appear destined to spc;'d | much time on-their feet.
