The cause of her death was not announced. The former Miss Charlotte Fran ces Payne-Townshend.she was one ox the few persons to have the last word with Shaw. They were married, in 1898 after a courtship on the bicycle oaths of Surrey. Then he called her bis 'green-eyed Irish heiress." As Shaw's fame increased, bis wife retired to the background and she was little known to his public. Mrs. Shaw was described by the playwright before their marriage as "a millionairess with cleverness and character." Shaw valued her criticisms of his work and he and his fame were her great enthusiasms. She was a close friend of Lady Nancy Astor and the two were often seen together at church services. Mrs. Shaw published a transla tion of French plays. She endowed institutions and scholarships and was known as a lover of music and the arts. She spoke German, French and Italian and also became proficient in Russian, which she studied before visiting the Soviet Union with her husband some years ago. Mrs. Shaw was last mentioned-in the British press 10 years ago when a reporter for a London paper call ed to asic her aDout a letter Shaw had written.

(STR1KE AT MANCHESTER 1,000 War Workers Quit Jobs as Pay Increase Sought (By Wireless to The New York Times and The Gazette.) London, September 13. Approximately 1.000 workers on the contracting side of the electrical industry in the Manchester area struck laifi today, enforcing a demand for an hourly wage increase approximating five cents and improved working conditions. Fear was expressed that stoppage in this vital war industry may spread Immediately to the Birmingham district where union officials reported they have having considerable difficulty preventing precipitate action. The Electrical Trades Union is asking for a wage boost of 3 pence hourly for 40,000 to 50,000 workers throughout the industry. Employers will meet here tomorrow to consider the demand. The work stoppage beginning at 5:30 p.m. affected workers in Manchester, Salford, Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport and Ashton. The strike is localized thus far but union officials said it was possible the executive board would consider extending it nationally. The unionists complain that negotiations since March have not been fruitful, adding "we have asked employers to indicate whether the door is closed to further negotiations. One complaint of skilled electrical workers is that they are receiving less than common laborers in the same factory. Brig. J. W. Watson Die Cape Town. September 13. CP" Brig. J. W. Watson, 44, Secretary for Defence of Southern Rhodesia, died today.

COOPERATION SEEN PATH TO SEGURITY (Continued from Page 11.) labor movements in Canada and declared that "unfortunately its development has been hampered by the antagonistic attitude of a great many employers, ana by tne iacK of a Federal Labor policy which would ' protect . the rignts or tne workers to organize ana oargam collectively. , Mr. Mosher reiterated his state ment of last year regarding strikes and slow-downs as a "weapon in the hands of the workers" and maintained that "the stage has not yet been reached in Canada when it is possible to abandon the strike weaDon." He stated that men be fore going on strike are "giving very serious consideration- to such a step since it means an immediate loss of income, but so long as only such a drastic method will remedy intolerable conditions, the workers are bound to feel justified in using it." URGES POLITICAL ACTION Describing the circumstances under which present labor movements have to work in order, to obtain better wages for their members, s' ' t ' ' 1 A. R. MOSHER Mr. Mosher stated that the attitude of labor movements towards governments and towards political action "must be reconsidered with a view to determining whether or not the time has come for closer association with political parties." "I believe." he said "that this is a matter which may properly be dealt with at this convention, and that Congress unions and the labor movement as a whole should consider the desirability , of finding means for the expression of its ideas and desires in the Federal House of Commons." He stressed that political action is "becoming increasingly necessary for the sake of the immediate interests of the workers: it is even more essential in view of the necessity for planning the kind of post-war world labor demands." ; Mr. Mosher advocated political action also as a part of the "debt we owe . to the armed forces," to the men who are now fighting for the maintenance of democratic principles." They must be given the assurance of economic security, of employment at wages adequate to maintain decent standards of living and homes in which their families may live in comfort," he declared. "Organized labor Insists that the resources of Canada, human and material, shall be utilized to the, fullest extent to meet the needs of her citizens and to render every possible assistance to the people of other countries less lortunate tnan ours." The president of the C.C.L. then outlined the preparations which the Canadian Congress of Labor has made regarding the post-war reconstruction period and mentioned that during the last parliamentary session, the Congress submitted to the Special Committee of the House of Commons on Reconstruction and Re-establishment a memorandum in which not only the broad principles of economic planning were set forth, but specific proposals were advanced as to what might be done in the period immediately following the close of the war." . Mr. Mosher stated that the organized worker must be first "to get behind; such a program of reconstruction and that they must use every means in their power to have It discussed and endorsed. "More and more people now want to know why money can be found to wage war, to build planes and ships and make munitions, to clothe and feed and transport armies of millions, when it is impossible to find it for peace-time needs." he declared. "If it is necessary to mobilize the nation to win the war against poverty, let it be done. In the world l& 4 can and must, be made, thexe . - ' 'i s I I i - will be both freedom from want and. freedom from fear." -He warned that opposition from representatives of "free enterprise- would have to be met and doubted that in ' trie modern world we are striv ing for such at thing as free enterprise is possible. Mr. Mosher declared mat "tne issue must v ultimately be decided by the will of the people as be- tween the competitive, profit-seeking system which has been practised in the past and a system of cooperation and public ownership directed solely at providing . the goods and services required by the people." in conclusion he exnressea nis appreciation of great progress which the Canadian congress ana otner labor movements have made during the past year "in the fight for a new social order based on economic jus tice" and pointed the way to tne iu-ture savins: "The oDDortunities now opening up to labor for service to the people of Canada and of other countries are greater than ever before . . . the war has temporarily made it easier to effect changes in. the economic system, but if former conditions are re-established, it will take a revolution to alter them. "The time has come for labor to assert its rights," he said, "and insist that they-be respected, but at the same time it must unhesitatingly assume its full responsibilities as a national institution, naving a vital function .to perform and a worthy Duroose to fulfil." - Mr. ssi. .Laurent, reierring to tne post-war reconstruction program. during his brief address stated that after four years of conun uous struggle, the Canadian Deo pie could take time out to think of the "lot oi the common man ' al ter the war." He said "the lot of the common man - has to be a lot better after the war than before the war." and warned the dele gates that "we are not out of the woods yet. He maintained thai Canada is striving to win and pre' serve ,"the world's free institu tions" and indicated that the wel' fare of every working man. and minimum standards of pay, would have to be established during post-war planning. Mr. Phelan, speaking on 'behalf of the Minister of Labor, gave a survey of the work and growth of his department, which formerly em ployed only 200 people while the present staff has reached the 7.000 figure. He stressed that most of these workers had come irom tne labor movement and the industrial field. The department will do a big job. even after the war," he said, indicating that labor unions and the movement in general will have an important role to play in the future. "It is a force to be reckoned with." he said "and that is the way it should be." He is of the opinion that alter the war our economic system will not revert to a pre-war standard. Mr. Brais. on behalf of the prov incial department of labor welcomed the delegates to the Province of Quebec and stated that "Quebec has become a great and powerful industrial producer." He said that his department had done "all it could to maintain harmonious re lations between employer and em ployee and that Canadian Labor and capital had done a "superman job." C'CL. CONVENTION ASKS BANK CONTROL (Continued from Page 11.) The resolutions committee, re suming the discussion of about 300 resolutions before the convention, recommended that a demand from the Fruit and Vegetable Workers' union, local 1, Penticton, B.C., for the abolition of all Sunday work De rejected oy tne delegates, since it was impossible to "comply with the request expressed In the resolu tion." The chairman of the com mittee remarked that, although he appreciated the good intention of the drafters of the resolution, it was impossible to stop railways and other industries vital to every day living. "It is evident that the draf ters of the motion had onlv thought of their own industry," the chair man concluded. The Congress delegates approved a resolution calling for financial assistance to any union in the event or an authorized or approved strike, called by any organization coming unaer tne jurisdiction or the Congress and the Executive committee A motion d?aling with the need for a provincial federation of the Canadian Congress of Labor and three other resolutions on the em ployment of certain transport work ers on public works projects were referred to the incoming executive committee lor further consideration. BOILERMAKERS MATTER. Discussion of a resolution on the suspension of the charter of Local No. 1 of the Boilermakers and Iron Shipbuilders' Union of Canada. Vancouver, was unanimously postponed by the delegates at the request of President A. R. Mosher, who told the delegates that he hoped the annual convention would be able to avoid such a discussion. "Since I have been in Montreal" he said. "I have had the privilege and pleasure of meeting representatives of warring factions in Vancouver and it seems that we are at least making some progress towards unsnarling the tangle which has gone on there for the past few months." Preceding the discussions, Pat Conroy, secretary-treasurer of the C.C.L. gave the annual report of the officers of the Executive council in which he disclosed that the organization now has nearly 200.000 members. Over 100 new unions have been chartered during the past' year, with Quebec taking the lead in membership and numbers of unions over most provinces. Besides giving a general review of the work done by the Congress during the year, Mr. Conroy reported on his visit to Great Britain where he was the guest of British trade-unions. Most of the material published in the report has been discussed publicly during recent months. The convention will continue till Friday. SERIOUS MANPOWER SHORTAGE HERE (Continued from Page One.) more than what the defence Minister outlined today will be necessary to enable this country to play its enlarged part in the fifth year of war. It may be said that up to da.e there has been no pressing need for more Canadian troops overseas, that for three years those already across the ocean have been kept relatively inactive, tht in a na-Uoa of le&s thin i240$0,000 peqpie the manpower reservoir is ob viously limited, trtat tne war -fort has been widely dispersed over a wide area of varied production ramr materials, foodsturu and munitions that this young country could not be expected to do more. that it may have actually attempted oo much. But so far as military manpower s concerned, it was apparent from the outbreak of hostilities that wime day the demand for soldiers Irom this countrv would be heavy, and for many months critics of the gov- j CXllillCill., 111 udtlioillui. dim outside, have insisted there should be more men in training in preparation for that day. What has developed, however, is that when the demand comes in this fifth year' for more men Col. Ralston is forced to drastically cut home defence and to admit that even this measure will leave him short. A. hint was eiven that another source of supply might be tapped. that servicing staus might be curtailed. It might even happen that the over-DODulated headauarters staffs might receive some attention. More important still would he extension to a nation-wide scale the nresent drive in Toronto to clean up pockets of draft evaders.

Through Field Marshal Lord Wavell. Viceroy of India. Britain has pledged the liberation 'of Burma among the first of her objec tives, and there the first blow is expected to f aU.- Not a Bomb Falls on Malta Malta, September 13. B Malta, once the most bombed spot on earth, for the last two days has sheltered the main Italian fleet plus British battleships and numerous other major nerval craft. Yet not a single bomb has been dropped, although the island is within short bombing range of Ger many's best-equipped bases in southern Italy. There has been no more con vincing evidence in the Mediter ranean war of Germany's waning air strength and the overwhelming air power or the united Nations. To one who , visited Malta last summer when a rowboat was tak ing a risk in Valetta harbor, the contrast is too dramatic to describe. Almost as astounding is the ex perience of the British and Italian naval forces at Taranto. In this Italian harbor, only 100 miles from Foggia. German's greatest air base in southern Italy which has 11 satellite fields, no ship of either country was struck by a bomb. The British navy sent in warships and traded places with the Italian navy without a scratch or bomb damage to either side. Other British vessels, which had been patrolling off the Taranto coast vulnerable to attack by land based planes, were equally lucky. Although they expected a concen trated assault at any moment noth ing more dangerous than the drop ping oi.tnree ziares took place. Officers reported they were ccr tain they would be made the im mediate target of a torpedo plane attack. They fired a few rounds of anti aircraft, driving the flare plane off, On the cruiser Luigi Cardorna. sev eral sailors had their underdrawers and shorts drying on the rail. There were few shirts. The Italian sailors apparently are allowed to go bare to the waist at will. They're deeply suntanned and -look ruggedly healthy. Perhaps they appear so nonchalant because they are not prisoners of war. (A broadcast by the United Nations, radio in Algiers said no details can be given regarding future use of the Italian fleet but the 'Italian crews are not considered nris- oners of war." United States Gov ernment monitors in New York re corded the broadcast. (James Welland, Chicago Times' correspondent representing the combined United States press, reported that four highfanking Italian naval commanders are with the Ita lian fleet at Malta. He said they are Admiral of Division de Zara, now aboard the flagship Duilio; Admiral of Division Romeo Oliva, aboard the cruiser Eugenio di Savoia: Admiral of Division Accor etti. aboard the battleship Vittorio Veneto, and Admiral of Division Biancheri. aboard the cruiser Duca degli Abruzzl.) There is no attempt at military secrecy. Each vessel has ita name embossed in large metal letters on either side of the stern. We inspected the battleships Andrea Dona and Caio Duilio in detail. Both appeared in perfect condition, clean as a whistle. They carried an astonishing number of anti-aircraft guns, the heavy ones protected in turrets and the lighter ones on the deck behind shields. They mounted five heavy guns fore and five heavy guns aft and had batteries of three medium guns amidships. The two vessels, apparently sister ships, had sleek profiles with long horizontal lines. The crews hung nonchalantly over the rails as we passed. One sailor was taking a shower on the open deck. . The crew members aboard the destroyer Alfredo Oriani volunteered a description of the German aii attack on the Roma, which was bombed and sunk off the coast of Corsica Friday. They said it lasted off and on for about three hours, between 2:30 and 5:30 p.m. Thursday. "Planes came over in threes and fours and seemed to fire their bombs from guns," said an officer who spoke excellent English. "In any case we could see smoke and a flash as they launched their bombs." He said he was unable to see the hits on the Roma and did not see any planes shot down. We asked him how he happened to speak such excellent English and he answered: "It was my grandmother that was Scottish." " .

(Heavy and medium army bombers battered enemy shipping and ground installations September 13 (Paramushiro time). A transport was set afire, another transport damaged and hits scored on three cargo vessels.. (The raiders fought a SO-micute sky battle with Japanese fighters, downing at least 10 and perhaps another three of them. Four United States aircraft were lost due to enemy action, and six others faded to return, the Navy said.) Salamaua, occupied by the Japanese .shortly alter they overran Lae, January 23, 1942, affords the Allies a ea and air base on the left flank of vital enemy bases oa New Britain. Eighteen miles northeast of Salamaua, the pincers on Lae was tightened, aided by air blows. Allied bombers, making a round-trip flight of more than 2.000 miles, heavily bombed the waterfront and barracks at Macassar, the Celebes. Southeast of Salamaua. Japanese dive bombers attacked the harbor of Allied-held Morobe, New Guinea, but today's communique said the raiders caused only minor damage. The Japanese left much equipment as they fled north. Only one good trail leads from the captured ase toward Lae. But even should they succeed in reaching Lae, their fate apparently is sealed because the entire area from Salamaua to Lae is tightly encircled. "We have captured Salamaua." the communique said. "Our southern forces are In close pursuit of remnants of the enemy's disintegrating troops. "Our northeastern and western, forces (at Lae) are gradually increasing their pressure. Our heavy bombers in direct support attacked enemy defence installations with 49 tons of , explosives, causing extensive damage at Emerys and Did-dymans. A bridge on the main valley road was destroyed and several gun batteries silenced." In the Solomons.
