S3 1L CHICKEN 1122 St. Catharine West J An anonymous telephone caller betrayed Earl Herve Provost, 22-year-old navy deserter, to Desk Sergeant Frank McCarthy early yesterday and resulted in the capture of the fourth suspect sought in connection with the $1,000 Or-pheum Theatre holdup three weeks ago. Det Sgts. Henri Bond and Joseph Bedard who captured the other three men' charged with the robbery and with a series of holdups in local drug and food stores led the Holdup Squad detectives to the Seigneurs street rooming-house where Provost was hiding. Det. Lt. Wilfrid Bourdon, head of the squad, and the other detectives, surrounded the house before steps were taken to capture Provost. Faced with the possibility of a gun battle, following the desperate attempts made to escape by the suspects at the Avalon Club in Hull, Que., where Patrick McKuhen, 23-year-old navy deserter, was shot and wounded so seriously that he still lies in a critical condition in a Hull hospital, the detectives took special precautions. Provost escaped from the Hull club while McKuhen, John Cripton, 22, another deserter, and Helen Atkinson, 24. a Montreal girl, were taken into custody by the Bond-Bedard team.

Smith Transport, Citing Wife's Injuries After a hearing which occupied the Superior Court the whole of yesterday, lurther evidence was adjourned until Monday of a case in which William Frederick Page, of Montreal, is suing the H. Smith Transport, Limited, for 16.033.27 damages resulting from a collision between plaintiff's automobile and a truck and tractor belonging to the company defendant on the Montreal-Toronto highway, March 22, 1940. The accident happened near River Beaudette during a wind and snow storm in the afternoon of the date named, and the damages alleged resulted from severe injuries suffered by Mrs. Page, who was a passenger in her husband's car, travelling from Montreal. The action was directed against H. Smith Transport, Limited, as registered in the province of Quebec, and the Smith Transport, Limited, as registered in Ontario. The collision is alleged to have been caused through the fault and negligence of the truck driver, who, plaintiff said, travelled on the wrong side of the road and obstructed the highway so that Page's automobile could not pass. Defendants deny the allocation. aeciare that the truck travelled at a moderate speed and with every possible care on the part of the driver. The accident was attributed by the defence to the fact that the Plaintiffs automobile was travelling at 25 miles an hour, which, it was contended, was a reckless speed in the bad weather conditions which prevailed at the time. Two witnesses for the plaintiff. Mr. ana Mrs. of Brockville. travelling in an automobile in the wake of the defendants truck from Cornwall to River Beaudette. testi fied that the latter vehicle driven In the middle of the road at a sneed oi zu mue.i an nour, but the defendant's tractor immediately in front of the truck was far enough to the left of the highway as to block the passage of a vehicle on that side. Mr. Long said it was the tractor which struck plaintiff's car. Mr. Justice Alphonse Decary is the trial judge: Gustave Monette. K.C.. appears for the plaintiff, and A. M. Watt for the comoanv de- fendant. Whosoever truly loves his coun try will for his country's sake make me most oi nimseix. Provost rushed to the Alexandra Hotel in Ottawa from the club broke open a suitcase containing money and a .38 calibre revolver, and fled. He ras reported seen in Montreal several times but it was not until Desk Sergeant McCarthy received the anonymous call that the detectives became aware of his "hideout" on Seigneurs street, north of St. James treet. With Det. Lt. Bourdon knocking on the door at 4.15 a.m. yesterday, Bona and Bedard flanked him. Af ter repeated knocks, the householder answered and pointed out Provost's room to the officers. Through the door which flood ajar, the detectives saw Provost, ao parently asleep in bed. He was awakened and submitted quietly. A search of the room revealed a .38 calibre revolver. There were no signs of money in the room. At a "line-up" at Detective Head quarters yesterday. Provost was identified by Orpheum Theatre employees as one of the trio which broke open the safe at gunpoint ana stole tne day s receipts. Cripton and the Atkinson girl' are awaiting trial before the court, while McKuhen is reported making little progress toward recovery. Provost will face arraignment on armed robbery charges today. Expect Egg Scarcity To Continue a Month Current scarcity of eggs in the Montreal market, especially of grade A large fresh eggs and B . and C grade storage eggs, is likely to continue for a month or more until December layings start to reach consumer channels, market authorities forecast here yesterday. The temporary shortage is attributed mainly to the buying up of summer stocks of B and C grade storage eggs by the special products board of the British Food Ministry, to provide supplies of powdered eggs. This depleted the reserve of storage eggs usually available at this time of year when layings become light and fresh egg supplies taper off. In addition, deliveries to Montreal from- poultry farms in surrounding regions nave been steadily falling off because selling was diverted to districts in the neighborhood of large war plant and to military camps. Egg receipts on the Montreal wholesale market have for some weeks been running around one tenth" of deliveries at the same time a year ago. The British purchases and the diversion of market .deliveries have been accentuated by the shrinkage of fresh egg supplies always met about .this time of year, due to moulting of hens and the practice of poultrymen to weed out old hens from among their layers.

Students Told Building of Character 'Main Business of Living A. K. CAMERON, SPEAKER Joanne Foster Delivers Valedictory at Rites at Which Scholarships and Prizes Announced "If one wishes to be of use to his day and generation, 'sacrificing to the graces' becomes the most important single concern of the individual," A. Kirk Cameron, chairman of the Protestant Committee of the Council of Public Instruction, told the graduating class at St. Lambert High School last night. "There is no precise definition of the word 'grace, " Mr. Cameron said, "there are a thousand definitions, each having particular significance, depending on time and circumstance of use. . . . But the plus or minus content of the graces in the individual constitutes character. In the final analysis, the building of character is the main business of living." Mr. Cameron pointed out to the graduates that what the future held for them largely depended upon how they addressed themselves to the important task of "sacrificing to the graces." As illustrations of a very few of the graces, Mr. Cameron mentioned intelligence and understanding, industry, orderliness, courage, patience and flexibility. The back- round of intelligence, he said was ased upon a wide reading. He advised the students to "read widely, tor tne range ana character of your reading is the gauge of your men tal growth and is reflected in your general attitude to life and liv.-ng.' concerning tne grace of inaustry, Mr. Cameron said that "havine something to do and doing it well is mayDe tne greatest gut we can have from the Creator." Hand in hand with industry is the grace of orderliness. "The individual ble.sed' with, the quality of orderliness pro ceeds on his way logically and without confusion." ine grace uppermost in our minds today is courage the most difficult of all to define. As examples of pure courage Mr. Cameron mentioned Edith Cavell, Fo-garty Fegen and Capt. Scott, and as living examples King George and Queen Elizabeth, who "when dan ger was greatest and suffering most severe, nave been louna, en couraging, succoring and support ing their people." Patience, Mr. Cameron said, was perhaps one of the noblest of the graces, but he warned against let ting patience degenerate into conv placency. One of the rarest and most diffi cult of the graces to acauire is flex. ibility, the speaker declared, adding mai -me aacK in tne maiviaual of ability to adjust himself to new and unexpected conditions is the root (Continued on Page 16, Col. 5.)

Infantry Man Is Army Backbone Despite Modern Mechanical A rms By ERIC The infantryman, with blood on his brow and the light of battle in his eye, is the traditional symbol of a nation fighting for its life. Among Canadians the infantry soldier will always be remembered as a characteristic figure in the honored host of the sixty thousand dead whom we lost in the last war. Though armies have been mechanized and meet each other in the fearful head-on impact of massed machines, yet the ultimate decision lies with the infantry, the lightest armed and the most adaptable of all units. The infantry is like the human hand in the processes of manufacture. The wheel and the piston may perform their miracles of productive ingenuity. But with out the help of man s hanos, they cannot begin to function nor even be brought into existence. So it is with armies. Battles may be fought with the aia oi tanks, guns ana aeroplanes, but the men who in their tens of thousands light on foot must do their work before the victory is won. The miantry soldier is the most important man in the army. His toughness and intelligence must in the end confirm all success in war. The whole of our vast national effort goes for nothing unless the individual fighting man, the man in the ranks, has the quality to go through with his job. It is not one Government Gas Restriction News Brings Howl horn Taxicab Owners News of Government gas-restric tions hit Montreal taxi-owners like a bolt out of the blue yesterday, eliciting comments that ranged all the way from hopeless resignation to plasphemous epithets on how we ve bin robbed. English and French-speaking owners of anywhere from a score or more down to one or two cabs admitted they had been given plen ty or warning that they were due for a severe jolt, but none of those queried claimed to have any vlea that ' we were going to be. hit like this." General feeling was that the Ot tawa orders, if enforced, would ob lige those depending on taxi-busi ness only tor their living to drop out of the picture altogether, while those with supplementary means of livelhood would have to cut their taxi-service down to less than half of what it is now, letting more than 50 per cent, of their hired driv ers go. There was an aggressive side to the reaction picture, however. One owner felt "positive" that the new ruling will make service so bad that complaints from citizens will force re-consideration in Ottawa. Montreal's taxi fleet, consisting of some 770 cars with permits, is owned by 350 proprietors. The Diamond Taxi Association controls about 475 of the vehicles, with La Salle HARRISON. of the more spectacular jobs. It is more often one of the worst jobs, a composite of mud, blood, weariness and sticking it. The infantry soldier under the conditions of war may often go hungry, cold, wet, but through every circumstance of cheerlessness, thorough forlorn days and ghastly nights he must hold fast. In him the tactics and the strategy, the battle and the campaign are brought to a focus. On his nerve and sinew the greatest issues depend. No generalship can win its triumphs if he should fail. The nation at home, working for victory, and knowing the dread of alternatives', looks to him to despatch the grimmest part of the business of deliverance. HIS FUNCTION IS VITAL All other arms are the infantry-. man s auxiliaries. The artillery sup ports him. The tanks prepare his way. The artillery pounds the po sitions he is to assault and lays a barrage of fire to cover his advance. The tanks smash through ahead of him and break the lines of the defence, but the follow-up is left to him. He it is who compels the enemy's withdrawal or forces his surrender with bayonet and grenade. It is he who must hold the objects which have been won. He (Continued on Page 16, Col. 6.) Taxi controlling another 150, and the remainder operated by unaffiliated individual owners. The Ottawa order, cutting down taxi mileage to 66 a day, or 2,000 per month, means a reduction of more than 50 per cent, in most cases. Dick Lanthier, top member of Diamond Taxi Association with 22 taxis, said last night that there "is nothing for us to do now but put our cars away in the garage and forget them. We have two men on each cab now, keeping it on the road 24 hours a day, but even one man could not make a living on the four gallons we're going to be allowed." Up to the present, Mr. Lanthier said, taxis have been using about 10 gallons per day except on Saturdays, when consumption to handle the "big-day" rush has hovered around the 18-gallon mark. James Brown, another prominent member of the Diamond organization, said plans were being made for a delegation of 'local owners to go to Toronto over the week-end and discuss the new ruling with the taxi-association heads there. Nick DeAnglis, president of the Montreal Taxi Owners' Association, was in l'Annonciation last night and could not be reached for (Continued on Page 16, Col. 1.) Air Minister C. Power Rests After Operation Air Minister C. G. Power underwent an operation for removal of his tonsils yesterday at Ross Memorial Pavilion of Royal Victoria Hospital, and was reported later to be in a satisfactory condition. The 53-year-old minister was admitted to the hospital last Sunday suffering from a throat ailment which had bothered him for some time. Members of the family revealed subsequently that his tonsils should have come out two years ago, but that he had been unable to find time for the operation. An official hospital statement said Mr. Power was "resting quietly" last night. HEARING DATE SET Quartet to Appear on Stolen Goods Charges "Preliminary hearing was set for November 12 when three men and a woman denied charged of receiving stolen goods and keeping them in their possession. The accused are Armand Lacoste, 35, 221 Lagau-chetiere street east, Oscar Robidoux, 50, 984 St. Dominique street, Norman Karam and Mrs. L. Karam. 955 St Elizabeth street Bail of $500 each was fixed by Judge Armand Clou-tier for Lacoste and Robidoux, while the other accused were released on parole. According to the complaint the four received goods worth $135, stolen from a truck belonging to Armand Lalonde, 5869 Chateaubriand street. Two other men, Yvon Rousselle, 19, 207 Vitre street east and Rene Taillefer, 18. 209 Vitre street east are presently awaiting trial for the theft of Lalonde's truck. Ban Railway Passes For Holiday Period Wartime conditions have made it necessary for Canada's big. rail lines to suspend the use of all passes during the forthcoming Christmas and New Year holiday period, it was announced at headquarters of the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways yesterday. "In view of the increasingly heavy demands that will be made upon the resources of the Canadian Paci fic and Canadian National Railways in the handling of the Armed Forces on furlough and the nublic generally," the announcement states. "the management of the two rail ways find it necessary to suspend the use of all free and half-rate transportation from Monday. Dec ember 21. 1942. to Tuesday. January 5,, 1943, both dates inclusive. This suspension is equally applicable over all lines and on all trains of both companies and their subsidiar ies. This action is the result of war time necessity and we feel confident that it will be accented in that spirit by all concerned." Quints Subscribe $10,000 North Bay, Ont, November 6. 5 Officials of District Headquarters of Canada's Third Victory Loan announced today that the Dionne Quintuplets of nearby Callander had subscribed $10,000 to the loan. Reaches $187. 221 ,300 with Province Trailing Only by Small Percentage CARRY ON TILL TONIGHT Chartered Banks to Keep Doors Open Until Four to Take Care of Final Subscription Rush As Montreal entered the 18th and last working day of Canada's third Victory Loan campaign, the Island of , Montreal total was boosted to $187,221,300, or 117 per cent of the original minimum objective, according to figures released last night by Victory Loan headquarters. The province as a whole still trailed the island percentage by a small margin, as further subscriptions brought the provincial figure to $230,918,450, or 115.46 per cent of the $200,000,000 goal Large subscriptions announced by the Special Names Committee are as follows: The Canadian Import Company Limited. $400,000; Commercial Union Assurance Company Limited and Associated Companies have subscribed an additional amount of $55,000 making a total of $255,000; Jules R. Timmins and Company, $195,000; Corroon and Reynolds (Canada) Incorporated. $50,000; Cus-son Freres Limitee, $5,000 additional making a total of $10,000; Dr. Hector Cypihot $5,000; LaSalle Builders Supply Limited. $10,000; The Pastene Company Limited. $25,000; Cockfield, Brown and Company Limited including their Pension Fund have subscribed for a total of $75,000; Fyon and Fyon Limited. $6,000; United 5c to $1.00 Stores of Canada Limited, $15,000: Wolf Ro-sanstein, $10,000; Dominion Preserving Company Limited, $5,000; Catholic Mutual Benefit Association of Canada, $15,000; The Wales Home.

Among the larger centres in the province, Sherbrooke reports a total of $2,822,800. or 141.11 per cent, while Three Rivers has reached a total of $2,205,000, or 113.8 per cent OFFICES OPEN ALL DAY. While canvassers and Victory Loan workers were setting out to get every further subscription pos sible today, it was announced at Victory Loan headquarters that aJ unit offices of the Victory Loan on the Island of Montreal will remain open this afternoon and tonight and that all chartered banks have asreed to keep their doors open from 2 to 4 o'clock this aftrnoon to receive additional subscriptions from anyone who so far has not subscribed. or who wishes to increase his sub scription. Subscriptions may also be made by telephone up to 10 o'clock tonight by calling headquarters at BE. 3741. A high spot among reports last night was one from Quebec's farthest outpost tiny, isolated Baie Comeau, on the lower St Lawrence, where members of the community have far exceeded their quota of $125,000, with $200,000. or 160 per cent., subscribed to date. Almost equal to the showing made in the last loan, this effort is outstanding in view of the fact that the population has shrunk since then. Site of the Quebec North Shore Paper Company mill, Baie Comeau has oversubscribed every loan drive since the beginning of the war. The County of Richelieu, with an objective of $670,000. has attained 132.3 per cent, with $886,800 subscribed to date, according to another report Sorel is the largest community in the county, and subscriptions include the following! Marine Industries. $250,000; Sorel Industries. $303,050; Sorel SteeL $15,000; City of Sorel, $140,000; special names, $135,000. Meanwhile officials at Victory Loan headquarters were giving consideration to what overseas military units the Island of Montreal Commando daggers, symbolic of the Victory Loan campaign, would be sent There are 35 Victory Loan units on the island, each one of which has received a regulation 14-inch dagger from Sheffield, England, to be forwarded to some military unit when the loan objective has been achieved in the respective units. SEND DAGGER TO EDWARDS. The dagger for the Province of Quebec, a silver replica, it was learned, will be sent to Air Marshal Harold Edwards. Air Officer Com-manding-in-Chief of the R.CAF. overseas. The dagger will be suitably engraved and will be a memento of Quebec's support of the loan. Manitoba, as the first province to top it minimum, has the honor of sending its dagger to Lt-Gen. A. G. L. McNaughton. A report was received last night from Royal Lodge of B'Nai B Rith that Henry Monsky. president of the organization in Washington had purchased $5,000 worth of Victory Bonds in the name of the Canadian lodges. The Federal Government office in Montreal have all shown warm support of the loan, and with a cam-bined objective of $250,000. have subscribed $275,000 to date, with (Continued on Page 16.
