Municipal Vote May Influence British Budget LONDON, March 14 (CP) Op ponents of the Labor government say the budget to be submitted April 6 by Sir Stafford Cripps, chancellor of the exchequer, is sure to be cheerful because London County Council election will be Iheld the following day. They say Labor leaders would hardly announce bad news for taxpayers on the eve ef voting In Britain's largest city and ether local government areas. Election dates are determined by the county councils and fall between April 3 and 9. Budget news also will have a bearing on voting a month later. The borough council elections will be held May 12 and district council balloting between May 9 and 14. All Scottish county and municipal elections will be held early in May. 20 Million Vote In these various elections, more than 20,000,000 Britons will be able to give their ballot - box opinions on Labor and Conservative policies. Since the war, Labor has been shocked by some municipal - elec tion results which have indicated both increased support for Con servative policies and Increased Conservative organization work In the field of local government. In the past the major parties have tended to look on county and municipal votes as matters of local concern. Labor was the first to put national party sup port behind local candidates and just before the Second World War It had built up substantial power en the councils. But if the Conservative started late, they have worked efficiently in recent years. Government legislation In cen traiizlng social security and other powers has reduced seme or the responsibilities of local authorities. They, In consequence, have shown far more Interest than formerly in the composition of parliament. In England and Wales alone there will be 20,000 vacancies, a record number, to be filled this year in all councils. Both parties hope the turn - out of voters also will set a record.

In reply to the legation's request that the sale be prohibited, since the masks resemble Stalin, the Cuban government said : "The effort of the Soviet legation to apply totalitarian repressive measures it suggests is unacceptable." Calibre of 'U' Dramas Criticized by Speaight REGINA. March 14 (CP) Uni versity drama groups in Canada have come In for criticism from Robert Speaight, British drama critic and producer, for letting the art down. Mr. Speaight, adjudicating re gional drama festivals across Canada, was sparing with sharp criti cism in his adjudication at the close of the three - day regional fes tival here Saturday .ucht. His har shest words were directed at unl versity efforts. Their work had been "most dis - appointing up to now" and he was "struck by how little trouble universities in Canada go to" in put ting on good drama. "Not Good Enough" The exceptions in his tour so far, !. A surprising contrast, he said, was the splendid perlormance and "astonishing caricature" of "The Sisters Mcintosh" presented by the youthful Luther College Play ers of Regina. Reglna Group Wins Noel Coward's "Private Lives," presented by the Regina Little THeatre Society, won the Mcintosh trophy for the top play and thus is eligible to represent Saskatchewan in the Dominion finals in Toronto next month. Mr. Speaight said the winning play was "quite on a different level" from the other festival plays and its highly competent pro duction primarily was due to Its direction by William Reio, presi dent of the Saskatchewan Drama has been Mount Allison University In New Brunswick and the Univer sity of Alberta, A 19 - year - old Moose Jaw actress in her firit dramatic venture won the Saskatchewan Drama League He criticized Percival Wilde's 0, ,h. w mi n,f,.,. the drama directorate of the Uni - Annette Bernard, former CBC versity of Saskatchewan, as not;sinKeri earned the honor with ner good enough for a university to play." "I don't know what the university directorate is doing to put on n play of this sort, ' he said. "They have no business in this at all if they can't do something seriously wortnwnue. Universities and collegiates were the logical places for the beginning of good work. This valuable nuc leus was being Ignored in most of Canada. J. J. McCill Mr. C. H.

March 14 (CP) Discussions are under way here between representative! of Britain, New Zealand and Australia for a Pacific defence pact similar to the north Atlantic Alliance and embracing British Commonwealth and other countries, John Dedman, Australian defence minister, an nounced today. Dedman said that Britain has taken an "active part" In the talks. The Earl of Listowel, British minister for colonial affairs, here for the defence talks, saw Prime Minister Chlfley today. He will confer with Dedman Tuesday. The talks are reported to envisage "a strong defence system from Western Europe across the Atlantic through the Pacific to the Indian Ocean." Dedman said "there are many problems to iron out" in considering a Pacific Pact, including possl - ble membership. He said Australia would like to see the membership spread out over the widest possible area. Won't Bar India Dedman added that some coun - rles on the Asian side of the Pa cific would be invited to join. The possibility of the Dominion of In dia becoming a republic would not affect her possible membership. Informed observers here believe that Canada, the United States, Mexico and some countries in South America will be invited in what, really amounts to a big extension of the. Anzac Pact, a regional defence agreement signed in 1944 by Australia and New Zealand - Australia Excluded The Earl of Listowel's arrival coincides with visits by other Bri tish governmen representatives to India and Ceylon to prepare the groundwork for the Commonwealth conference to be held at Ottawa or London within the next few months. The Australian government Is openly concerned ever revelations that Australia Is being ex. eluded from the current vital defence talks at London on the grounds of security. It was Reported here that the United States was believed to have put strong pressure on Britain to exclude Australia. Sir Frederick Shedden, perman ent head of the Australian defence department, will fly to London within the next two weeks to try ana straighten out this impasse. Church Panel Members of the young Anglican group of St. Ann's Church will be informed of the alms and Ideals of all Canadian political parties by a panel of speakers Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the church hall.

Farmers, City Folk Fear New Flood Disaster VANCOUVER, March 14 (CP) i Whether floods will return , to British Columbia this year Is the question uppermost in the minds of those who know what happens when a mighty river goes on the, rampage. . j Aftern an unusually hard winter throughout the province, farmer I and urbanite alike fear' a repetl - ! tion of the 1948 disaster, when the, livers of southern B.C. pulled out all the stops and left thousands broke and homeless. There are really two parts to their question: Will there be a flood, and will the remodelled defences hold? Officials of the Dominion Water and Power Bureau cannot predict a flood. Their records ahow snow depths ranging from 110 to 215 per cent of normal. Water content of the snow covering la above normal in the lower levels, and near or below normal in the mountainous headwater areas. The crucial factor however, they say, is the combination of spring conditions spread out over a two - month period. That they cannot predict. Last year, as in 1894 the last big flood year there was a cold delayed spring. Then, early In May, hot weather came with a vengeance. Take the Fraser as an example. Into it drain the North Thompson, South Thompson and Lillooet, as well as dozens of smaller tribu taries carrying the run - off from thousands of square miles of mountain territory. Ordinarilv these seoarate rivers drain as the melt moves north ward. Each load is carried out to the sea separately. But last year, as In 1894, all bore down on the Fraser at once. It was like someone filling a drinking glais with a fire hose. The same thing held good for the Okanagan, Columbia and Koo - tenay systems, with the result that ordinarily - adequate dikes were swamped. The same thing could happen again, the weather people say, but It is extremely unlikely. so tar laree portion of the low - level snow has run off, reasonably warm, dry weather during March and April would take care of most of the remainder. Local flooding Is expected, but that happens almost every year. But what II a large liooa aoes come 7 Last year's battered defences have been largely replaced or strengthened. A government pro gram costing almost $5,000,000 has been under way since mid - summer and now is racing against time for completion. In the Fraser vaney municipal officials say they are in far better shape than last year, when some people dldn t even know where the dikes were situated. The new ram. parts are higher, thicker and stronger. In addition, communities are now experienced In organizing to fight the river. Engineers point out, however that if It does flood some new dikes will break More is a Special or economical "Spring Heating" SUNNYH1LL PEA ECONO PEA 5050 PRICE $E3.0O Per ton FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY Phone 920 161 Reds Tighten Vise On Hungary Border HEIDELBERG, March 14 But Budaoett m. (NANA) The Hungnrtan Com - about th no, fimitiv,.. munist regime has reinforced its border guards along the Austrian frontiers to halt the new wave of political fugitives westward, de veloped since the trial of Cardinal Mindszenty. It Is estimated that more than 1,000 persons are coming monthly from Hungary into the U.S. and British zones of Austria. Apparently they live on the Austrian black market, for there no longer is any provision to take care of them In D.P. camps. Formerly, the Hungarian Com munist government did not regard the flight of so - called Fascist as dangerous; In fact, they winked openly at underground escapes as a means of infiltrating Red agents westward and obtaining dollars, pounds, and marks for propaganda, as well as Austrian schillings. Roman Catholic workers and tradesmen or farmers anxious to escape a future collective farm system. j The Austrian frontier, about 300 miles long, has been manned with five battalions of police and apec - ! lal patrol units. A similar system ; is being created on the Czech fron - j tier. A new law decrees severe penal - 1 ties for unauthorized border cros - : ers.

Robert F. Miller, ship's surgeon. said at an Inquiry that Stephen Harper, 24, of London, killed himself March 1 In his locked cabin. The Durban Castle Is the liner on whirr, the London actress, Eileen (Gay) Gibson, was slain and shoved through a porthole last 14 year. A ship steward, James Camb, was convicted of her murder.
