"He was known for his military M scientific work and wrote a book of strategic value called Mod em Warfare.

Sea Scouts Here Said Protected By Precautions and Supervision The American tragedy which recently took the lives of 10 Sea Scouts, drowned on a cruise which was under the command of an inexperienced skipper, would have little chance of duplication here in the opinion of the local commissioner in charge of sea scouting. There are stringent laws laid down by "the Boy Scouts' Association covering the craft to be used and the qualifications necessary for instructors. The boats are regularly inspected by a competent committee cn craft and a certificate is issued each vessel. All officers are recommended by the sponsoring organization and must receive the sanction of the area commissioner. In the case of row boats, the boy in charge must have passed a searching swimming test and examinations on boat handling, lie is given instructions, in case a boat capsizes, that he is to stay by the boat, near his charges, and signal to shore for help. For larger boats, the skipper must satisfy a training and personnel committee that he has sufficient knowledge of boat handling and crew discipline. If he passes the strict examinations, he is granted a charge certificate for one particular boat. If he wishes to change boats, his certificate must be stamped in approval of the switch. Montreal sea scout nautical activ ities are supervised by a commit- MAN CRUSHED TO DEATH C.N.R. Employee Is Victim at Longue Pointe ' David Dion, 56, of 1315 Belanger street east, a wagon inspector of the Canadian National Railways, was crushed to death between two freight cars at the Longue Pointe roundhouse while on inspection duty yesterday. The body was taken to the morgue where an inquest will probably be held today. Constables A.'Brodeur and J.'C Choquette, of Radio Patrol, investigated, and reported to Lt. Glas-ford Larose, of the district police station. tee of five, two appointed by the Montreal Council for Scouts, two by officers and the fifth, the commissioner in charge of sea scouting. All sea scouts must pass a rigid swimming test before being allowed on the water and no boy under fifteen is allowed in the sail boats. Younger lads confine themselves to row boat activities. Another factor in the safety measures taken for Montreal sea scouts is the use of inland water. The boats do not go down to the Gulf at all, and in order to sail out of Lake St. Louis and the Lake of Two Mountains they must have a special permit. The largest boat used by the local sea scout group can carry 20 boys for a day trip, but the number is reduced to 12 on a week-end jaunt and to 10 on two weeks' cruises although the latter have been scarce since the start of the war' because there are not enough competent men to take charge of tne boats. As far as the sea cadets are concerned, their nautical training is received aboard naval cutters carrying ten boys with a qualified instructor. These skippers are all navy men and officers must pass examinations before they are charged with the care of the boys on the water. In the opinion of a local sea scout official, the safety of sea scouts depends a great deal on the lads themselves, and they are taught how to handle themselves in case of emergency and are trained to do without question what their qualified skipper tells them. MEET HERE FOR SOCIAL SECURITY TALKS 1i v . . '. Talks looking to the postwar economy of the United Nations were Initiated here yesterday, and here are four of the principals in these talks, photographed in the International Labor Office prior to their commencement From l?ft to right are: OSWALD STEIN, assistant director of the I.L.O.: SIR WILLIAM BEVERIDGE, author of the British social security plan bearing his name; EDWARD J. PHELAN, acting director of the I.L.O., and HON. IAN MACKENZIE, Minister of Pensions and Public Healtn in the Mackenzie King Government. Ex-Internee Refused Naturalization Right European refugees from Nazi oppression who have been intern ed in Canada under an agreement with the British Government, may not, on their release, become naturalized as Canadian subjects unless and until they have been granted a status, bringing them within the scope of the Naturalization Act On this ruling, handed down yesterday by Chief Justice Paul Mercier, of the Circuit Court, Fritz Justitz, an Austrian, had his petition lor naturalization as a Canadian citizen dismissed. The Court's judgment recounted that petitioner escaped to England from Vienna in 1938. just before the German armies invaded Austria. On Britain entering the war in 1939. Justitz was interned in England as an enemy alien and in July, 1940, was transferred to Canada, where he Was detained in an internment camp until September, 1942, when he was liberated on parole. "Registrars of enemy aliens are bound by their instructions from Ottawa." said Chief Justice Mercier, "to consider refugees from Axis states as enemy aliens not legally admitted to Canada. Petitioner, not having been legally admitted to the Dominion, does not possess the right to remain here indefinitely as a naturalized Canadian subject. Liberated from internment camp, he must be regarded as a foreigner in transit and as such liable to be sent to another place at any time. In those circumstances, his petition for naturalization cannot be granted." By January, 1943. 1.491 Maltese had been killed and more than 1,-500 seriously injured in air raids.

The Women's Canadian Club under the presidency of Mrs. A. K. Hueessen organized a campaign among mothers and inaugurated a series of meetings. An Enelish sub-committee was later formed composed of Mrs. Hugessen, Mrs. Heney, Mrs. E. R. Adair, president or the J,ocai council of Women, Mrs. Brooke Clax-ton. Dr. D. L.

Mackinnon yesterday issued an order continuing an interim injunction which restrains the city of Westmount from giving effect to a bylaw, passed in June last, ordaining that all drug stores in the municipality shall close at 7 p.m. every day. The Court's order was given at the conclusion of, and pending a decision on, proceeding asking for the issue of an interlocutory 'injunction which would bar enforcement of the bylaw until the Super ior Court has rendered judgment on the merits of the action of Macy's Drug Stores, Registered, attacking the bylaw, and has either quashed the interlocutory injunction or made it absolute and permanent. On the petition for the interlocutory .injunction, Mr. Justice Mackinnon reserved judgment. Tjie main argument advanced against the bylaw by John Hackett, K.C., on behalf of the petitioners, was that its enforcement would result in irreparable injury; that it was contrary to the law of the province (the Cities and Towns Act) and was an attempt by the city authorities of Westmount to impinge on the rights of liberal professions organized in this province as autonomous bodies and given full power by statute to regulate the activities of their members-The Pharmaceutical Association to H. Cadieux, Montreal, Is Head of Constables Toronto, July 9. KB H. A. Cadieux of Montreal, acting chief of the Department of Investigation.

Saint John, N.B.; Charles Barnes, Deputy Director of the Montreal Police Department.

The proceeds of the event which is expected to get under way early in the afternoon, will be devoted to the Kinsmen Boys' Club operated by the Kinsmen in Rosemount. Among the prizes is a silver trophy which will be presented to the day's champion racer along with a replica. Prizes will also be awarded to runners-up in the races. Wood Fuel Shortage Denied "Rumors of a fuel wood shortage have no foundation in fact," L. C. Robitaille, Prices and Supply Representative of the Wartime Prices and Trade Board, said yesterday. All necessary measures are being taken by the Prices Board to assure that such a shortage will not occur. Present indications are that there will be no shortage and the results obtained by . thg Board to date have been very encouraging, Mr. Robitaille said. Superintendent of Nurses Miss Olive Fitzgibbon. R.N.. has been appointed superintendent of nurses for the Montreal Division of the Royal Edward Laurentian Hospital, according to an announcement made recently by officials of the institution. Miss Fitzgibbon, a former staff member of the Grand'Mere Hospital, is a graduate of the Royal Victoria Hospital of this city. During 1942, Ceylon's village schools were responsible for the cultivation of 30,000 acres of crops. if W .44 jzyr rv which petitioners belonged alone had the right, Mr. Hackett contended, to determine under what conditions its members were to conduct their business. Mr. Justice Mackinnon: Would not that argument logically imply that the city has no right, to impose, for instance, a business tax? Mr. Hackett: No, my Lord. I submit that the right to tax is altogether different to the right to regulate business. C. G. Papineau Couture, K.C., for the city of Westmount, maintained that a writ of injunction did not lie against legislation duly enacted Dy ine municipal council of West mount. He said the proper proced ure in a case oi mis Kina was Dy petition, summarily contesting- the validity of the bylaw in question and asking that it be quashed on that ground. The case could then be disposed of within a minimum of time, lo grant an interlocutory injunction in this instance would create a precedent, that could be very dangerous, as it would open a way to every disgruntled citizen to attempt by writ of injunction to indefinitely postpone enforcement of a new bylaw. Mr. Couture insisted that the bylaw now challenged was adopted in accordance with the provisions of the Cities and Townn eirly closing law and was in the interests of good government and for the health and welfare of the local community.

GUARDED MB IK J, I titton to H ILMHVUST NEWSCAST CKf 11.50 la I J Jftj I Monday through frUof Entire Scheme Must Be International in Scope, Says Hon. Ian Mackenzie CONFERENCE IS OPENED Score of Delegates Eepre-senting 10 Countries Take Part in Parley Being Held in Montreal Social security is more than a matter of purely national concern, and must be integrated on an international basis and recognized as a factor in maintaining international peace. Hon. Ian Mackenzie. Canada's Minister of Pensions and National Health, declared here yes- teraay in opening the first international conference on social secur ity. Mr. Mackenzie is presiding over the weekend conference, though "ot an official Canadian Government delegate. A score of delegates, as sisting experts and observers from IB different countries are taking part in the gathering, officially described as a social security con- sultation. .It Is being held under huspices of the International Labor Office at I LO. headquarters on University street. The Pensions Minister In his address saw the conference itself and the agenda as evidence of the international scope of social security, and of the steps already taken to put it into effect Referring to-its importance as a contribution to international peace, he said: "To the extent that the eternal struggle between the 'haves and the 'have-nots' contributes to international jealousies and national pressures, resulting in war, an adequate program of social security makes a dynamic contribution to the cause of peace. In this consultation we should think . of social security not only as an objective, but as an instrument to be used in fashioning ouS reconstructed world." . COORDINATION NEEDED. Mr. Mackenzie felt that it wa becoming better understood" that full employment while a necessary basis for effective operation Ot social security, would not do away with, sickness, old age and widowhood, r.or eliminate hazards of unemployment from fire, flood, earthquake, or periodic adjustments In trade and industry. Full employment and social security were both essential," he declared. To carry out objectives, he said, there must be coordination of various social insurance institutions and, a fusion of them with such social welfare and social assistance plans that had developed. The interest of both the federal and provincial governments in the conference, $ which will continue until Monday, is reflected in the presence of federal delegates and of observers from both bodies. Also, delegates were guests at a dinner last night given by the Federal Government and tonight Premier Adelard Godbout will preside over a provincial government dinner. Delegates, observers and assisting experts include Hon. Ian A. Mackenzie. Minister of Pensions and National Health, who is presiding: Sir William Beveridge, author of the famous British report bearlns; his name: Dr. Leonard C.

Altmeyer, chairman of the U.S. Social Security Board: L. P. Pigeon, law clerk of the Quebec legislature: and representatives of New-Zealand. Mexico. Cuba, Brazil, Chile, Peru, and Ecuador. It was pointed out as the conference got under way that steps have been taken on surveys made on social security In Britain, the U.S. Canada. New Zealand; Mexico. Cuba and Brazil, and that the United Nations are pledged v fight against want. The conference here will thrash out the basic principles and techniques which delegates feel should apply on an international scale as well as domestically. London.
