20: Crown in Hull I il i I LoainioidKe 'Walton Case Francois Caron, K.C., Awaits Definite Order From Quebec Hull authorities would prefer that Ontario continue to handle the Walton case and conduct the trial of two airmen on murder charge in Ottawa, where they are now under arrest, it was revealed in a statement Sunday evening by Francois Caron, Crown At torney for Hull. "I certainly won't lake the ease aver unless I have def- tnite Instructions from Quebec, and I don't expect to get such Mr. Caron said. Pending official word from the Attorney General of Quebec and the Attorney General of Ontario, Crown authorities took no action over the week-end on the proposal to transfer the case to Hull. The ac cused airmen Edmund Paquette, 27.

of Ottawa, and Germain Douce 19, of Montreal, remained in Carleton A Coiinty. jail, having been remanded Friday on the murder charge for one week. Walter F. Schroeder, K.C, has been retained a counsel for Paquette. The proposal to transfer the case to Hull was advanced after police concluded that the slaying of the Ottawa business man actually took place 32 feet north of the inter-provincial line on the Chaudlere bridge, on the Quebec side.

Accordingly, Ontario Deputy. Attorney General C. L. Snyder, K.C., announced Saturday he was notifying the Attorney General of Quebec that the Ontario courts had no jurisdiction in view of this evidence and was prepared to turn over the two airmen. Mr.

Caron disagreed with the opinion of MrA Snyder. He said Section 584 of the Criminal Code stipulated that when a crime was committed on a bridge connecting two legal jurisdictions, the law authorities of either had the authority to act and prosecute. same section of the Criminal Code, Mr. Caron said, made reference to crimes committed on -boundaries of legal jurisdictions regardless of bridges. He said this permitted authorities of one juris-- diction to prosecute persons for crimes- which were -committed within 500 feet outside their boundary.

"I don't see why we should saw step Into the picture and taka soma of the credit away from the Ontario authorities. They have done a marvellous Jibli lnvestls-atlng this Mr. Caron said. Since other persons, in addition to the accused slayers, had been arrested by Ontario authorities and charged in connection with the investigation, he felt it would be advisable to continue all prosecutions in Ontario. in connection with the investigation has taken place in Ontario." i.

Police have learned that Mr. vJValton was stunned by a blow An the head with a bottle while was being driven home In his car. After he was robbed of his money, he was thrown from the Chaudiere Bridge into the Ottawa river. It was understood Mr. Walton was not driving his car mt i im hiit wan Ktttinff as a passenger in the front seat The two airmen accused of his murder were taken from the city police cells on Saturday and removed to Carleton County jail for the time when authorities decide in which province their trial will be conducted.

Paquette was visited on Saturday by his mother and the priest cf his parish. Both airmen, jail authorities stated, had slept fairly well and were eating regularly.

Ease Conditions For Canadians To Return Home New United States regulations will facilitate holiday travel by Canadians In the United States to the Dominion, said a statement issued by the office ofWar Ser vices Minister Thorson Saturday. Canadians in the United States who wish to visit Canada will be permitted to do so' by securing a border crossing card for which there is no fee and can be secured without delay. The person proposing a visit to Canada must have three photographs, size two inches by two inches, which are necessary before the border crossing card will be issued by any office of the United States immigration service. Each member of a family making- visit will require a border card, the statement said.

Prior to the passage of these more lenient regulations, Canadians living in the United States had to' secure a re-entry permit from the United States immigration and naturalization service before they could re-enter the United States after visiting Canada, the statement said. It took approximately 30 days to get this permit and a fee of $3 was charged. "Because of this Inconvenience large, numbers of Cans-- dlans who make their permanent homes south of the International boundary have not visited Canada since the outbreak of the Ottawa statement said. The order refers only io Canadians resident in the United States and does hot affect American citizens who are entitled to come to Canada without passports, reentry cards or border crossing cards. All they need ire the usual documents such as birth certificates or tax bill- receipts which woyld establish their status as American citizens when they are re-entering their own country.
