R. I. K. Seeley Mystery Control Is New Philco Feature; Dealers See Models Philco radio 1939 models were introduced and demonstrated at a dinner at the Fort Garry on Tuesday evening which was attended by approximately 100 dealers from Winnipeg and surrounding territory. S.

managing director of Philco Products of Canada, was introduced to the gathering by H. Allen, sales manager of the Great West Electric, and was the principal speaker. Mr. Capell reviewed the work already done by his company and stressed that in the 1939 Philco models tone and mystery control are featured. Mystery control is, really, portable control and is operated by a small box with dial much like a telephone dial, in no way attached to the set.

It will operate any place within 100 yards of the set, and by dialing the desired station on this portable device communication is at once established on the radio. To all intent it is radio controlled radio. He also told dealers that Philco radios In Canada are now equipped with Philco high efficiency tubes which, in the past, have only been used in American sets.

THE WINNIPEG TRIBUNE PAGE 1 Canada's Riches Need Defending Covetous eyes are being cast on immeasurably wealthy Canada with JU millions of acres of spare land, from many sides, and it is time Canadians awoke to the This Is a contention of Lt.

Col. A. M. Thomas, M.B.E., V.D., oi Toronto, officer commanding the Toronto Scottish regiment, vice president of Copp Clark Publishing Co. and president of the Infantry and Machine Gun Association of Canada which convenes at Fort Garry hotel Thursday.

The thought stated above had been brought home to him, the lieutenant colonel told The Tribune, by his trip through northern Ontario. "There lie countless acres which we are not now using, will not be able to use extensively for many years. Think how enviously certain European countries with populations 100 or more times denser than Canada's must regard that territory." Defenses Inadequate Canada's provision for defense is woefully inadequate, he believes. Particularly needed is mechanical equipment, guns, tanks, aeroplanes, and the rest. The present budget of around $34,000, 000 for defense could very well be doubled.

"And I speak for many more in the non permanent force who, like myself, nre citizens and taxpayers as well as civilian soldiers." Riches Inviting "Canadians must remember the riches of their country, the oil. gold, radium, coal, timber and agricultural wealth, and recognize the danger that some power may envy us that wealth." Representatives of 19 brigade headquarters, 59 rifle battalions, 26 machine gun battalions, six tank battalions, nine C.O.T.C.'s and Canada's permanent units will meet for the convention which will make recommendations to the government concerning the defense organization for Canada. This will be the first time the association has met in Winnipeg. NARCOTIC TRAFFIC Continued from Po Thr. Portage la Prairie district cultivated the plant to supply a small hemp factory which had been established In the town of Portage la Prairie.

When the factory closed down the farmers stopped cultivating It. but It still grows wild in that district and a whole field of it was discovered and destroyed this summer. Marihuana and the Indian hemp plant are synonymous, and the hemp seed from which the marihuana plant grows is sold as bird food. Bird seed spilled by pet canaries commonly resulted in marihuana plants springing up on refuse dumps. Consequently the narcotic act has been changed to cover bird seed, which now must be sterilized.

Depends on Climate There is only one species of Indian hemp (cannabis sativa), of which marihuana is one of the fairly numerous varieties. It has been cultivated or grows wild on practically every continent, but the strength of the narcotic content depends largely upon the climate of the region in which it grows. Plants raised in suitable altitudes under the beating sun of India, Turkey, Africa and Mexico, have the greatest resinous content, the brown sticky substance which exudes from the surface of the leaves at one stage of the plant's life and from which the crude narcotic is derived. Marihuana thrives in the more temperate climates and, though somewhat less lethal, the drug obtained from it is no Marihuana is a first cousin of hashish, also a product of Indian hemp and a powerful narcotic which has been in use for centuries. The word "assassin" is supposed to have been derived from a word meaning "hashish users" which was applied to a brigandish people Asia Minor whose murderous excesses were carried out while under its inuence.

Not a very desirable family connection. The drug's peculiar effect, and the sort of people whom marihuana attracts and tempts, will he described In the fifth article of this series.

With the glasses the murderous pullets cannot distinguish red. Have Final Say On 'Fire Traps' Bitter criticism and condemnations were hurled at Adam Beck Tuesday night by members of the Winnipeg school board following presentation of a report by a board sub committee probing his charges of last March that certain Winnipeg schools were "fire traps." Added fuel to the fiery attacks was the bill of $1,780 from the North wood commission which investigated the situation. Presentation of the account left the finance committee with very little to say except that "the provincial government approved the commission and their bill so we have no option but to pay." G. W. Northwood, chairman of the commission, is to receive $1,000 for 123 hours work on the hearing; J.

W. Halls will receive $300 for 100 hours work and V. D. Hurst, third member of the commission, who worked 140 hours on the hearing did not present a bill. The sum of $288.07 will cover othr expenses.

Claim Exaggeration Mr. Beck's statements as they appeared in the newspapers were "unfair and unwarranted." the sub committee decided. In their opinion there was no occasion to create in the minds of parents the fear that their children were In danger of losing their lives in school fires. The report added that the investigation by the North wood commission was not only costly but that it "had a serious effect on the morale of the schools." Descriptions of newspaper reports and pictures of Mr. Beck's charges and excerpts from the commission's report included in the sub committee's report.

The report mentioned North wood commission findings that ground floor classrooms were not dangpr spots for children; that fire escapes at Isbister school were not blocked by stores kept in the hallway and that an escaoe at Argyle school was In good condition. Defends Actions After the committee's lengthy report had been read full. Mr. Berk declared he was not responsible for the publicity which followed his charges of last March. He declared his actions in taking reporters and photographers to schools were motivated by a remark allegedly made by Edward McGrath.

Ward 3 trustee. "Although he didn't know I wes within hearing distance. I henid Mr. Mt Gralh tell Mr. Martin (W.

A. Martin, building commissioner), that he and Fire Chief Boulden would make statements to the press the following day which would knock mine into a cocked hat." "I'm not apologizing for anything I did to protect our children." Mr. Beck continued. "The North wood commission did a lot of good." Immediately Mr. Beck sat down, Mr.

McGrath jumped to his "You lie when you make those remarks. All I might have said lo Mr. Martin was something like 'Chief Boulden, yourself and 1 have been going around to schools fir ninny years and It's funny we haven't noticed these Not Fire Traps "Ai provincial fire commissioner I'll ay right here that there is no danger of Winnipeg school children being caught like rat in a trap in mil' schools." Mr. McGrath added. William Ross declared "Mr.

Beck's one mission on this board seems lo be to discredit the hoard and officials. The situation in our schools, while it Is not as bad h. Mr. Beck's exaggerated statement. would lead one to believe, is not of the best but It's because we have no money.

The Northwood com misison cost the board more money than we can afford right now and only gave us information we had known for some years." Fascism Denied IB?

Standard of Living Survey Undertaken A nation wide survey to determine Canadian family living expenditures and nutrition has begun and field agents of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics are now canvassing selected areas in Winnipeg to secure lists of "typical families" for the survey. Its purpose is to provide material for the study of consumer problems. They will try lo determine whether present diets among the typical families provide proper nourishment, and find out the existing standard of living among wage earning families.
