The conference, he announced, will be held in Toronto early next February and will include representatives of all provincial governments and all national organizations concerned with the handicappeds' difficulties. With federal government officials, they will "cover the field." The conference, said Mr. Murchison, was called in response to the need for a co-ordinating agency to deal with the handicapped question. He added: "At a time like this, it is essential that our country use all its productive resources. Our national strength is the chief reliance of a free world, in its effort to overcome the forces of tyranny and i-Eression.

The Supreme Court denied a motion by the American Labor Party to prevent the, hotel from cancelling the reservation. Robeson, known as a left-wing advocate, was to receive the award from the second World Peace Conference at Warsaw. The hotel counsel said the contract contained a cancellation clause. An affidavit said the contract was cancelled because of fear of rioting, injury to guests, damaae to the hotel property and unwillingness to let its facilities be used "in furtherance of the propaganda of a nation actively hostile to the United States."

Jones, minister of Calvary United Church and former Modera tor of the United Church of Can ada, speaking before members of the Electrical Club of Montreal, discussed the merits of peace and goodwill, with special reference to the present international situation. Archdeacon Gower-Rees, at Victoria Hall, said "We are living in an atmosphere of international tension, but most men are fairly clear in their minds as to what peace is not. When we speak of peace, it is not appeasement. Peace at any price can be had without any difficulty." The former Moderator introduced his remarks on the international situation saying that the "dearest wish at the heart of humanity at this Christmas-tide is peace and good-will." He said to accept peace at any price" will lead to appeasement and the lesson of the great betrayal: of history. To many, the cost of peace appears to be too great and men and nations do not appear readv to pay it.

Citing the Federation, the Canadian Jewish Congress and the Combined JeAish Appeal as examples of organizations which owed their scope and efficiency to the fact that they were "federated", Mr. Bronfman said that the once-novel idea of unified communal welfare objectives had gamed ground during the past two decades of his leadership until today the concept is universally accepted. Scroll Presented An illuminated scroll presented by Philip Garfinkle, honorary sec retary, on behalf of the Federation New York," the message read. Tributes Paid Among the speakers who addressed testimonials to Mr. Bronfman were Samuel Moskovitch, K.C., for the past chairmen of the Combined Jewish Appeal. Michael Garber, K.C., vice-president of the national executive of the Canadian Jewish Congress, on behalf of the Congress, and David Croll. M.P. Out-of-town guests paid tribute to Mr. Bronfman through J. Irving Oelbaum of Toronto, president of it: Very Rev. Dr. Jones, speaking at the Queen's Hotel, stated that the "spirit of thankfulness which is associated with Christmas is needed today more than ever in this rush-and-bustle age." He said: "Man desperately needs today the true spirit of thankfulness, joyousness and service which should accompany Christinas." Stressing the need ior more humor, he added "in times like these, when the news from near and far tends to depress us, we need the uplift which the spirit of joyousness can bring." Dr. Jones stressed the importance of "the spirit of service," and appealed to the members to think of Christmas as a reminder of serving ethers." It is not what we get but what we give that will make this Christmas more of t'blessing than ever." he said.

I t. 13 Mr, Mackay said the birth cer tificate of a company is its letters patent or charter, and, therefore, should be at all times retained as a permanent record. "Entries in a minute book, when signed by the chairman of the meeting, are prima facie evidence of the truth of the statements contained therein," Mr. MacKay continued. "It follows, therefore, that the minute book be retained permanently in order to justify the legality of the corporation's operations should it ever be called upon to do so." The speaker said that in some provinces a title deed itself is title to the property and its loss may entail loss of ownership of the property. Consequently, he said, title deeds should be retained permanently as record. "Contracts and agreements made by the company with others should be retained as a permanent record, whether such agreements are with the Crown or with individuals or other corporate bodies," he declared. He said that patents, copyrights and trade marks all have a limited life in theory. In practice, however, the life of a patent can be extended almost indefinitely by improvement and amendment, and that of a trademark by renewal. Insofar as the company's life depends upon the rights granted by these documents, they should be kppt permanently, he said. Master conies of drawings fall basically into the category of the copyright, he said, and are valuable so long as the company can claim to be the assignee of the designer of any particular drawing. The basic books of account recording a company's earnings the general ledger and journal with audited financial statements and internal unaudited statements should be kept, Mr. MacKay said. He also suggested that as a matter of practice though not from a legal point of view government returns be kept, and that receipts, vouchers, cancelled cheques or other evidences of payment be kept for seven years. Mystery Metal Sphere Subject for Research Albuquerque, N.M., Dec. 20. (JP) Dr. Lincoln La Paz finally has got rid of New Mexico's version of "the thing." The University of New Mexico meteoretics head sent the 18-inch I sphere under $1,000 insurance to the General Mills Corporation at Minneapolis. Dr. La Paz said a representative of the corporation had identified every external characteristic of the "thing" during a half-hour telephone talk Wednesday morning. He had kept possession of the metal ball since it was found Nov. 23 on a mountain in Central New Mexico. The General Mills representative said his corporation would answer to the naval agencies which had asked for the ball. The corporation has been doing cosmic ray research for the Navy. Dr. La Paz said a silk parachute found near the ball was marked "U.S. Navy." Situation Is Brighter Chrysler Increases Canadian Car Prices Windsor, Ont.. Dec 20. P Price increases on 1931 passenger cars were announced today by the Chrysier Corporation of Canada. The increases range from 4.83 to 6 43 per cent. E. C. Row, Chrysler general manager, noted "very substantial" increases in all the company's costs in the last two years, during which the company had not increased prices. The new models, not yet released to dealers, contain a number of improvements which also increase costs, he said. First 1951 models would be delivered in January, and the new prices would be applied then. They will affect Plymouth, Dodge, Desoto and Chrysler cars.

Danes to Charge U.K. Steeper Bacon Prices Toronto, Dec. 20. W Maj.-Gen. Churchill Mann, national chairman of Red Cross disaster services, said today, "There is too much singing of Christmas carols altogether for the seriousness or our world." "We look forward to Christmas, but the enemy doesn't," he told the Toronto Board of Control in a lec ture on civil defence. "We stop our planning to celebrate, but the en emy doesn't and therefore is much farther ahead. The former vice-chief of the gen eral staff, now retired, said he ex pects to be back in Army uniform "in a few weeks." But "for what remains of peace," he will devote his activities to the Red Cross. He criticized Toronto's civil defence activities and said Coordinator Harold Bradley has "displayed a lack of zeal." Those in charge of planning "should devote all their energies to the task of a wartime pitch." Earlier, Maj. George Orr, chairman of the deputy directors, protection division of the civil defence organization, told the board Toronto fire-fighting apparatus is "far short" of wartime civil defence needs. He recommended purchase of 25 new fire trucks, and an adequate reserve of hose. Mann Only Spokesman Mr Bradley, replying in an interview to Gen. Mann's criticisms, said: "Gen. Mann did the talking, but he was only the spokesman. It looks very much to me as if Mr. Stewart wants thp job of paid co-ordinator or director of civil defence." William Stewart is a former mayor of Toronto. Mr. Bradley charged that Mr. Stewart was trying to get back on the city payroll and "this criticism is a concerted attempt to destroy any confidence the Board of Control might have in me." When Mr. Stewart was advised of Mr. Bradley's remarks, he expressed surprise and denied he had inspired Gen. Mann's remarks. Ontario Autoist Killed Jordan Station, Ont., Dec.
