Many commercial interests tare represented on the dir ectorate." - I French Trade Council. PARIS. April 4. (CP.-Havas) The Chamber of Deputies, by a show of hands, today authorized' establishment of a trade council. modelled on Great Britain's, to strengthen French foreign trade during and after the war. Strengthening of the personnel of the Ministry of Commerce also was authorized after the deputies were told that the British Board of Trade employs 2,689 civil ser vants, while the French ministry has only 600. Gabriel Plancke, chairman of the Chamber trade committee, in asking for speedy action, said that "after the war we shall- not export because we have won an armed victory. We shall export only if we have maintained, cared for and increased our foreign markets'. Claims Landlords . '.. R.C.A.F. Members Certain greedy landlords are victimizing officers and airmen of the R.CAJ", who are temporarily stationed in Ottawa," according to a letter from a squadron leader addressed to the Industrial and Publicity Committee and read at its meeting Thursday. The communication stated that good many members of the R.CA.I". are arriving here for duty and that not a few are bringing their wives and . families with them. "In a number of cases owners of apartments and rooming houses, and in some cases private homes, have been renting accommodation to both officers and airmen at ridiculous prices, obtaining almost any price for the accommodation they care to - ask", the letter asserted. The squadron leader claimed that for a bed-sitting room and private bath "for which the owner in normal tunes would be 4ucky to get $30". he had had to pay 190. On top of that, the day he moved in the owner complained of noise early in the evening, a short time after receiving the rent cheque in advance. "It appears this was a conspiracy in order to have the writer move so they would be in a month's rent for nothing.' : . Members of the committee doubted whether the situation complained of was general although H probably applied to some extent Their attitude was that much as they would like to, there was nothing they could do to help matters. General Odium 'Delighted' al News VANCOUVER, April Brigadier General Victor W. Od lum, chosen today to command the Second Division of the Canadian Active Service Force, said today he was. "naturally delighted" at his appointment "I have had no official news of the appointment, so I can make no statement yef. he added. His appointment was announced at Ottawa by Hon. Norman Rogers, Minister of National Defence.

May Motorize Garbage Collection Equipment Complaint of Alderman Coulter regarding the Lees avenue dump in Ottawa East led to a discussion at Board of Control on Thursday on the .possibilities! of the city motorizing its , garbage collection equipment and constructing an incinerator for garbage disposal and a sewage disposal plant ' Controller Bourque, who pre sided in the absence from the city of Mayor Lewis, was of the opin ion the engineering department should gather data on the sewage disposal plan and have it ready in the event construction was forced on the city by government regulations. However, nothing of a definite nature was done. Polluted by Sewage. Mr. Bourque said the city was spending all kinds of money purifying the river water at the purification plant but at the other end of the city, the water was being polluted by sewage. It was pos sible that in the none too distant future the government might1n-sisl on cities having sewage -disposal plants. - Controller Geldert said a sewage disposal plant would cost at least 12,000,000. The tax rate was something to be considered and in order to lower this the debenture debt would have to be cut down, not Increased. T ' Mr. Coulter said he had a number of complaints about the dump ing of garbage at the- extreme western end of the Ottawa East dump.

It more filling wss needed in .this section, he did not think the residents nearby would object' to it being placed there In the Winter months. ! . Would Aid Strangers. -Mr. Coulter also made a sugges tion regarding the assisting of strangers, and delivery boys in finding residences. He thought the city should try out in one ward scheme used in some other cities. This was placing on street signs at intersections, the numbers of resi-residences in the block.. Arrows would show the numbers in both directions. Works Commissioner Ask with was asked to report on Mr. Coulter's complaint and his suggestion regarding streets.- D. N. Gill, assistant manager and comptroller of the Ottawa Electric Railway wrote that the complaint of speeding on Main street tn Ot tawa East and the request that O.E.R. buses reduce their speeds on that street when children are going to and returning from school was being brought to the attention of the company's operating department.
