Safety Lane Tests Show Cars In Dangerous State 60.5 Percent Of Those Tested Were Not In "Reasonable Condition Of Safety" A HIGH of Manitoba Motor vehicles are in a deplorable condition, It is stated In a report released by the provincial bureau of labor's accident prevention branch, dealing with safety lane tests carried out at 20 points during the year. The report is signed by W.

Trevor Davies. No less than 4,892, or 60.3 percent, of the 8,114 vehicles tested failed to reach a "reasonable condition of safety." Not more than ten percent passed on first trial, many returning several times after adjustments and repairs before the tests were satisfactory. Brakes were defective in 38 percent of the cars. Headlights were better than in tests of previous years but "there are still too many glaring headlights and also Ineffective headlights in use." Vehicles tested were voluntarily submitted by the owners. "What then," the report comments, "is the condition of those other motor vehicles, the owners of which either avoided these tests or attached little importance to the condition of the safety equipment Condition of vehicles indicated speeds reached on highways had been excessive.

Another hazard was faulty or worn out tires. In Great Winnipeg 2,619 cars were tested in the Winnipeg and St. James lanes and in official garages. Of these, 1,256, or slightly less than 50 percent, failed to pass the tests. $20W000 Fraud Charges Negro And Companion Had Large Ideas LBy The Canadian Prei) OTTAWA, Sept, 10 Concluding a check of stubs recording promissory notes, allegedly issued by Cary Burns, 53 year old negro, police said Friday night the evidence indicated the figures on the notes totalled at least $200,000,000 Burns and his.

10 When it comes to bankruptcies the Western provinces are not in it, on any comparative basis, with those of the East. Last year, according to the superintendent's report, there were a total of 967.

Policies Will Feature Final House Session "Show Downs" Are Forecast In Both Major Parties By CHARLES BISHOP I From Tin Tribuna otuiva Rurraii by ikiuUiam Puoliahina Co I OTTAWA, Sept. 10. When it will assemble probably not till after New Year but possibly before the next session of parliament is regarded as the last one. It is true that the parliament's tenure does not expire till 1940 and also that Prime Minister King has; stated at times that he saw no reason why.

the House should mil go to the limit of its constitutional life. But the rank and file expect, and ministers talk of the election next year as something in the natural order. Conservative certainly share that view and are prepared by giving effect to the organization the National convention devised. No one has the remotest idea, at the moment, what the election will be about what will be its dominating Issue. Things, at home and abroad are rising with such impressive frequency that It is difficult to say what particular situa tion might be seized upon as calling for popular decision, Trade agreement may provide something In the line of election fodder.

Certainly they will provoke large discussion In parliament if the forecasted lines should be followed. Conservatives will resist any appreciable surrender of preferential advantages to facilitate an Anglo American agreement or a revised one between Ottawa and Washington. A real clash is quite possible and. sometimes the final round of such battles is fought out In I he open, rather than on the floor. Provincial Relations Constitutional relations with the provinces furnish another possible theme in an election.

The ryal commission will find certain facts and indicate Its opinions on them, but it will be for the government here, and the provincial governments, to decide what to do about it. If the concensus of conference opinion is that a constitutional change is required, because the country has outgrown the suit which was tailored in 1867, and if Messrs. HeDburn aid DuDlessis vited to go to the "mat" about it. The common conception of gov Prnments, here, is that manv pro vincial administrations want the Dominion treasury' to finance them or widen their resources while scouting the suggestion of yielding anything in return and treating the Idea as an Invasion of their autonomy. Provincial rights questions, nevertheless, have been shown by experience to be liberally charged with dynamite.

That the Dominion government would wish to stage a battle on grounds susceptible of being represented as an attack on provincial powers, is questionable. Liberal Showdown In the Liberal party, before an other election (next session In fact a show down over policy Is fore shadowed. There are aggressive elements which want to the party, holding that Its re semblance to the Conservatives is I all too strong. The question wilt be whether this element will persuade the others that it Is time to come around to their views or whether, falling that, they will go out to shift for themselves or link up with some other more advanced, crusading body.

I Even In Play Democracy Is Found To Have Edge Boys Are Tested Under Dictatorship And Autocracy But There's Too Much Fighting I By Tht Ajuntllated Preeel "lOLUMBUS, Sept. 10 Boys who formed democracies, dictatorships and anarchistic "governments" at the University of Iowa child welfare station developed best under democracy. Experiments were reported to the American Psychological a.nocia tion here Friday. The work was done under direction of Dr. Kurt Lcwln by Dr.

Ralph K. White and Dr. R. Lippitt. The scores were; In democracy, three times as much friendliness and co operation as In autocracy, more development of initiative and greater enjoyment of work.

More Hostility In dictatorship, three times as much hostility and fighting as in democracy, or else apathy thrice as great as In democracy. I In the anarchistic, or "laissez faire" government there was dfs organization, shown by fighting, loafing, horseplay and These were reactions of the same hoys, as they successively lived under each form of 1 Their ages were 11 to 12.

Taken In the arm, the narcotic is first "cooked" in an ordinary teaspoon over the flame of a match. The liquid is placed in an eyedropper which has a needle attachment and the "pop" Is then administered by jabbing the needle point Into a vein.

The arm of the confirmed "junker" is mass of tell tale needle pricks. Heroin, Most Potent Drug, Is Plentiful In Winnipeg This is the Srst of a series ef articles by Tribune ift writer on the narcotics problem in Winnipeg By TONY ALLAN 7 WINNIPEG has been called "one of the worst heroin cities on the continent," and with good reason. Right now it seems to be living up to its unsavory reputation. In the tenderloin district, a strip of five block on the west side of Main running north from the market square to Logan I he hopheads are high and happy, and there every indication that thi stuff is plentiful, not only heroin but new mnace, marihuana. Ever since the resurgence of the heroin traffic here in 1935, after the cleanup of 1927 8 9 had put several of the large distributors behind prison bars, both the R.C.M.P.

and city police have been waging a relentless war against the peddlers. A dozen or more have been convicted and imprisoned in each of the last three years, and nin narcotics cases are due to be tried at the next assizes. The "Heat Is On" For a while it look as though the situation was under control. The distributors who were not in jail seemed to be finding Winnipeg too hot for them. Supplies from Minneapolis and St.

Paul were cut off. But a new way of getting the stuff in appears to have been found, reputedly by way of Vancouver. A few months ago, when the stuff waa relaUveliv Junkers were paying $2 for a "pop," which is just another nama fof jn 1ne Tonay with the market aastoiL am nad ror The police do not admit any apecial alarm enncernfog ffltt pfmif situation, but the significant whisper around the tenderloin fe r1t ne nd tne c.M.P, are supposed to hav two or under ovr men trying to find out where the stuff la coming from. Just wny Winnipeg snouia oe st "heroin city is not. clear.

I hose most famiilar with the narcotic traffic simply shrug their shoulders and venture the opinion that it was an accldenlal development. There is no doubt about Winnipeg being a heroin city. The number of arrests for peddling ami drug addiction over a period of years have been out of all proportion for a cily of its size, and police records show that In almost every case heroin was the drug involved. Last, year, when the leaders of a morphine ring were on trial in done, dictatorship and democracy were about equal. But when the autocratic leader leaves the room the intensive work going on in his presence quickly fades out, Dr.

Lewin wrote. Tetttd for Education The "dictator" in these experiments was always friendly. He merely told the children what to do, with whom to work and how fo Ar. If Tn th .11 i prooiema were put up to me children to deride. In anarchy the leader gave Information only when asked.
