"We ere police officers making o few inquiries,' 'replied the driver nodding In the direction of his companion, 'who was questioning another autoist. "I'll soon find out whether you re policemen," snorted the drunk. He found out sooner than he expected when the policeman, after warning him to moderate his language, ordered him to get into the cruiser car.

E. Wolvln has informed Manitoba officials by wire. Alberta has protested to OHawa the alleged "dumping" of 100 men from the Lakehead City within the past few days. Hon. W. R. Clubb, Manitoba minister of public works, took up directly with Port Arthur authorities the fact that 150 men, giving that city as their home, have applied for relief in Winnipeg during the past 10 days. The acting mayor states that only 12 tickets were Issued for Winnipeg, 71 to the entire West, and 53 to Eastern Canada. The railway tickets, costing $3,832, were issued in 'good faith, he said. The men said they wanted to get back to their homes to stay wrth relatives. The rush of unemployed was occasioned by closing of the Lake Sulphite Pulp Co, mill Feb. 7, throwing 500 men out of work. Those who went to Calgary have been refused relief by municipal nnd provincial authorities and are stranded with meagre funds and no opportunity of obtaining work. The total of unemployed single men in Winnipeg was 2,384 at Feb. 28, as compared with 3,006 a year ago. Relief authorities claim nearly all are unemployable.

N.Y., March 4.Scarlet - clad Canadian cadet, come to the United States Military college tomorrow to close out Army's 1938 hockey season in the 15th game of the hands - across - the - border series that brings to the fore the essence of amateurism. The Canadians are representatives of the Royal Military college at Kingston, Ont. Army has never been able to defeat the Canadians, the nearest approaching being a tic - i in m.w. , Nevertheless the match always receives attention because of the international flavor, the military background and the courtesy connected with it. At 9.40 a.m. tomorrow 16 scarletr clad cadets from Canada will be met on their arrival here by 16 grey - clad gentlemen - cadets, to pair up for the duration of the Canadians' stay In order of their hockey positions. Defensemen pair up with defensemen, forwards with forwards. From that time on. each West Pointer is the host of the gentleman - cadet who is his personal opponent on the team, assigning him to quarters, taking him to classes, sitting, next to him during meals. On alternate years, the same courtesies are extended to West Pointers who visit Kingston. . But the visiting team brings no At the height of Angeles, torrents crashing down a hillside (upper left).

Protests by Marcus Hyman, spokesman for the Winnipeg C.C.F. - Labor members, were not enough to hold up second reading of the city charter amendments Thursday and, by a vote of 32 to 12, the bill was sent to law amendments committee. Introduced by Hon. J. S. McDiarmid, it gives effect to recemmennauons approvea Dy tnc committee of the whole legislature to help the city out in its relief emergency. These Include the proposed increase in business tax to raise an additional $200,000 revenue; the removal of 12 - mlll statutory limitation on the tax rate; and power to the city council to control expenditures of the parks board, the police commission, and the school board. Mr. Hyman asked Mr. McDiarmid if he was aware that the bill had not been authorized, considered or requested by the city council. "This is not a government bill," answered Mr. McDiarmid. "I am introducing It as a private member. It merely gives effect to decisions already made by a committee of the whole legislature." Mr. Hyman "Have the figures of proposed Increases in business tax rates, as set out in the bill, Continued on Page 10, No. 2 home rooters. And to remedy this, the host college divides into equal groups, one half rooting for the homesters, the other cheering for the visitors. This is done even to the extent of singing the visiting team's songs. In the 15 - year history of the tournament no referee has had to impose a penalty on any player. It is good clean fun, despite the fact that at various times skulls have been crackpd and blood has flowed in the slam - bang contests. This no - penalty record is believed to stand as tops In hockey in the same way that the histom of the goodwill series cup is probably without parallel.

V. 3 BILLS THROWN OUT AS M.L.A.'S IN CRABBY MOOD Harbor Commission Denied Power To Clean Up River Banks . In cantankerous mood this morning, the law amendments committee of the legislature threw out three bills, two of them designed to limit the operations of loan sharks, and the third proposing to enlarge the powers of the Greater Winnipeg Harbor, commission to enhance the scenic beauty of the banks of the Red and Assiniboine rivers. Prevention of dumping and cleaning up of unsightly refuse on private property along the river banks is now beyond the scope of the commission. The proposed bill would have given this power. A great mistake had been made when private citizens were permitted to buy property extending to the river bank, thus depriving the city of the opportunity of building a river bank scenic drive, S. J. Farmer, Wnnipeg, C.C.F. - Labor leader said ' in supporting the bill. Private owners should be prepared to co - operate with the city in keeping their properties clean. On motion of Gen. H. D. B. Ketchen, seconded by L. St. George Stubbe, the bill was not reported. The first bill directed against loan sharks, proposed by Marcus Hyman, K.C., Winnipeg, C.C.F. - Labor member, was designed to make a court order necessary before any goods seized under an uncollectabie debt could be disposed of by the vendor. It would enable the' courts to refuse granting such an order where excessive interest had been charged on the debt. "We're' free, white and 21 In this country," J. McLenaghen, K.C., Conservative, Kildonan - St Andiws, commented in moving the bill be not reported. "I am wholly opposed to the principle of restricting the freedom of the people in making private bargains or contracts." Vote on his motion ended In a tie, 7 to 7, forcing Hon. W. J. Major, K.C., chairman, to decide the issue. He decided the bill would not be reported. Mr. Hyman's second loan shark bill was tossed out. by a vote of 8 to 4. It 'would have made It impossible to recover in the courts even the principal of a debt whose excessive interest charge (over J2 percent) made it illegal under the Money Lenders' act.

Immigrants give way In numbers to the sons of immigrants. The Tribune presents a series of Interviews with a variety of Manltobant, of different racial backgrounds, born In the province, showing what they feel they oan contribute to Canada and what they ask of It. '"T'HEY'RE Canadians in mind and Irishmen in heart. They reason as Canadians, but they have a soft spot for Ireland. "I wouldn't be anywhere else than In Canada. What more could you ask? You have freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of worship, to a certain extent and to a far greater extent than exists in the older countries." The speaker, Terence O FIynn call him that, because it Is not his name is 26 years old, born in Winnipeg of a father who came to this city direct from Ireland 49 years ago. His mother is of Irish stock thrtt came to North America five generations back and moved to Canada from New York state about 70 years ago. He is thus representative of many of the 75,000 people of Irish origin In Manitoba, of whom only 9,000 were born in Ireland. "There is not that class distinction here that existed In Irelandin my dad's day, at least," O FIynn remarked. "Canada has everything for us that any other country hns, I think, and quite possibly more. It gives us the opportunity to establish a permanent home, and there is certainly a healthful atmosiphore in which to raise a family. "As far as material things are concerned, It offers the op,por - tunity of entering practically any walk of life that on? would desire, ' "What do we offer Canada? Well, we offer oursc ves, which is something as loyal citizens. There's an honest desire among us to make it a better place to live in. "There's an intense desire among the second generation for peace. But I think they would be among the first to defend their country. They offer the services of their rather keen intellects for the betterment of the country. They've certainly given Canada some outstanding men." The Irish had an Inheritance of buoyancy. "No matter how deep a cellur you put an Irishman into, there's always a ray of sunshine will get to him somehow. He'll always find a bright spot somewhere. a "I think it's their ability to laugh that does it to laugh deeply nnd grieve deeply. They go from one extreme to the other like a flash of liKhtnine.

They expect it in the life to come. - "They offer the legendary Irish vJt that they're supposed to have, FLIGHT FROM COAST IS AGAIN POSTPONED VANCOUVER, March 4.

Jimmy Dunn Returns Famous But Hungry Actor Who Rose to Movie Stardom From Local Stock Dines on Beans and Spinach to Keep Weight Down. By ALICE McEACHERN It's a tough proposition keeping your weight down for the movies, Jimmy Dunn, 33 - year - old Hollywood actor who is in Winnipeg for a week's personal appearance at a local theatre, admitted this morning. "An egg, toast and tea for breakfast, an egg, toast and tea for lunch, and string beans and spinach for dinner," he said sadly. Very occasionally he yielded to temptation and tackled a steak. All the way from Hollywood to i to spread smiles around a little more frequently. And they have whut you might call understanding hearts to grieve with or console their neighbors. "There's been n certain amount of the folk lore kept alive, though there s been no organized effort to keep it. But it crops out now and ashin. You hear of the leprechaun and the little green men.

Smiling Jimmy Dunn, 33 - year - old Hollywood actor, Winnipeg for one week's personal appearance Jimmy said he came for "old times' sake more than anything else." He played in a stock company for 22 weeks in Winnipeg in 1929. Wearing a light tan polo coat and colored glasses as he stepped on to a cold station platform this morning, Jimmy found it pretty chilly after California's hot sun. "It's the first time I ever rode for nothing," he remarked when he saw his picture on a street car.. Escaped Flood He was waiting for information of the Hood damage in California today, although he believed his 550,000 house was out of the flood area. "I don't know yet, 'but I think I'm safe," he said. "We were just under the wire getting out of California. We were on the last train to get away." Born in New York, the tall, brown - haired actor still speaks with a marked Manhattan accent in spite of eight years spent in the west making pictures.

Would you like to see her pirture?" j Unaffected and friendly, the actor chatted with friends 'he had mmle In Winnipeg nine years ago and recalled the city as he remembered It.

Premier Chamberlain is seeking large scale diplomatic successes in European diplomacy by a decision to ap proach both Hitler and MujKolint simultaneously. Critics of the cabinet's foreign policy fear he is attempting too much. The Initiative taken with Ger many is based on the resumption of Lord Halifax's conversations with Hitler at Berchtesgaden in November last. Britain would offer to return a colony to Ger many if she received assurances of a halt in the armaments race and lessening of the menace to Da - nubian countries like Austria and Czechoslovakia. irst approaches have already been made to Berlin by the British ambassador. - Hitler and von Rib - bint'rop, however, stick to their opinion that Central European security is not - Britaln's business and that Germany's return to any; collective security system Is Impos slble while France upholds her treaty with Russia. Moreover, The Times' Berlin correspondent puts it, Hitler contends that "by recognizing Germany's interests In Europe and meeting her colonial claim, Britain can rely on Germany to keep the peace. Britain would then be free to look to the defenses of her vulnerable overseas empire." Wants Press Curbed Incidentally, Hitler is still furious with the British press. He warned the British envoy It had better be curbed, As for the Italian negotiations, no real progress has been made with the withdrawal of troops from Spain. Conversations which Am, bassador Lord Perth has been In - structed to begin Immediately In Rome will last one month. Unless, however, some withdrawals of Italians from Spain have begun by that time, resumption of the attacks on Chamberlain's policies by the opposition parties Is certain In the House of Commons, The present bedrock difficulty Is tht Italian demand lot: closing the French frontier, so that the Spanish government can buy no further arma ments in France. To this the French cabinet flatly declines to agree until the last German and Italian has left Spain. Hails as Empererf . A rumor going about London today but unverified at any source is that Mussolini is now witling to restore Halle Selassie to the Ethiopian throne, provided Italy has control of three - fourths of the country and a protectorate over the Emperor's area. Denouncing Chamberlain's policy today, Winston Churchill says he has gone to the rescue of one dictator whose misdeeds have now brought him near to collapse. "Nothing Mussolini can give us is of slightest value," declares Churchill. "What Mussolini wants is money." CHILD INJURED James IwanchuK, five - year - old son of Mike Iwanchuk, 234 Fort St., sustained a ' fracture of the right ankle when knocked down by a truck near his home at 5.30 p.m. Thursday.
