COURIER NEWS g fc> f tke wor . . new CoSMitjn plants will send in 1941 X Typical Canadian -Family Benefits As Dominion Settles Its Disputes RV THOMAS WAYUNG NEA Service Staff Correspondent OTTAWA, -Just as the war has finally come straight home to John Typical Canada, average citizen ol the Dominion, .so has the conflict levohniouissed Cunda's industrial setup and ironed out disputes between industry and labor. John Canada thought about all tnte as he sac rending his paper on a Sunday.-afternoon. And he thought about- 'the lessons the neighboring United States, appar-i ently floundering somewhat in Us | great defense effort according to ' what lie read, could Irani from i Canada's experience, For instance, the Canadian auto j industry, i John's car dealer had told him' that ,despite heavy war taxes he has a buyer lor every c;ir he t-nn stock. Output of private cars, you i *er\ hn.s been limited so Canadian | factories can concentrate on $60,000.000 worth of war orders from Britain. Canada, Australia. India and other parts of the empire For the first time the big auto plants have-co-operated on standardization. General. Motors, and Ford in Canada are turning out hundreds of war transports parts nre almost completely interchangeable. The activity in' the automobile industry is reflected in all other Canadian industry. The national economy has turned to war work Production is already 70 per cent higher than the peak production of the last war. New plants cost- mg $280,000.000 are being built The government has. financed many industries to the tune or S800- 000,000. The gross value of all manufactured products in Canada prewar was $3.600.000,000. The new plants will turn out $31.000,000 worth of shells this year, $96,000,000 other armaments $15,000.000 airplanes and equipment, $15,000.000 automotive. $87,000,000 chemicals and explosives $11,000,000 machine tools and $34.000.000 miscellaneous CONTROLLERS SAY "NO" John. Canada admits to himself that unemployment and labor problems have been solved. For the first time in many years he has no labor, problems in his' own. factor'* 1 hen^neri,, ha ye come -to him -arid told hi mthey- are "all out" in the war work they had undertaken. There has. been no wages and" hours problem. The factory works three eight-hour shifts and the V wages are adequate. The 'men have agreed on the old scale, but with the cost of living rising, they had been promised a bonus to cover ihe differential. A wise government has appointed. controllers of all phases of e«- onomy. When there was a rush to hoard butter, the controller stepped m. When there was a shortage in bacon he regulated the price When rents started to soar a rents controller said "no." John Canada has a financial interest- in a block of flats. His partner manages the property and as the demand increased he boosted the price. The tenants appealed to the local rent controller. There had been an open hearing and because of the increased cost of operating the flacs the controller permitted an increase of S2.50 on a $50 rent The tenants accepted it and so did U his partner and everybody went •away feeling good. Just as labor is not allowed to capitalize on the war needs, capital is also held in check. John has been able to get many needed improvements in the plant and to modernize some of his machinery because the head office knows it "will lose most profits under l»h\toon Steams Em 11 SOLMEIMNC y Corp.

Yet every war need bought by Britain and Canada from the United States had 10 per cent tacked on as exchange. Then had corne President Roosevelt's speech. John Canada felt this , was the greatest Christmas <nft [ democracy had ever received It wasn't just a speech by Franklin Roosevelt. It was the voice of the American people.

And 1 must say, as 1 heard many others say, much r in rank than your reporter, thai our unit has really come Yes, with Hying colors, this way. Back in Ulythiivillu we were National Guard. We are now troops uf the Hollar Army. Wo no longer drill two or threu hours n week, then go home, see each oilier on the street eai-h' day, hobnob with each other through 10 week, then return next drill night to become soldiers for a lew hours, No, we are now as much In the army n.s we could ever be. And. M company is playing tho «iunc to ihe fullest. Camp Joseph T. Robinson is definitely not tin; plnco it was when this unit made its last encampment here.' No more are the old. drab, dreary looking warehouses and out-buildings. Gone are the chilly little mess hulls with their peculiar looking windows that raised from the bottom, and were suspended from the eaves of the mess halls by creaky 'hinges. In their places we ilnd nil of the buildings done in pure white. The mess halls are nice, large roomy buildings, heated with natural gas circulators. Each kitchen contains a giant natural gas cooking range, and a frying vat. This vat ii; used by the cooks to whip out a batch of delicious donuts, or tempting French-fried potatoes. What do we eat? Well, for breakfast, this morn- Ing we hlul eggs f scrambled), crisp bacon, tonst. fried potatoes. Jelly and coffee, with a bottle of fresh milk and an orange thrown in for fiood measure. Lots o!

Fred Oliver was heard to remark, "There goes the 'Old Gray Mare.'" And right away n young recruit wanted to know where the mare wn.s going and informed Oliver that he could not see her. Through the early morning air ,Private Oliver's voice was heard 'elling the young man that the 'Old Gray Mare' is the name of a song, :vnd the 153rd Regimental Band ploys it each morning at revllle. Each company, in this regiment has a newspaper reporter who reports to liis-home town. The same is true in en eh of the regiments here.
