President Manager of Junior Canadians Declares His Club Poorly Treated Here When Playing Royals Dawe Says 'Nobody at Fault at This End' Halifax. March 31. W Walter Fitzgerald, manager of Halifax Canadians, said today his team was treated "so poorly" in Its Junior playoff game with Montreal Royala last week that he would "never take another team to Montreal." ' Fitzgerald arrived back home with his charges last night after absorbing a 12-3 defeat from the Royals in, the first game of what was to have been a beef-of-three series in the Memorial Cup Eastern semi-finals. The next day. George Dudley, President of the Canadian Amateur Hockev Association, announced that It had been decided to cancel the rest of the scries. "Its a money-making proposition and we're not big enough to interest them." the Halifax manager charged on his return. The small size of the crowd which attended the game "had a lot to do" with the rest of the aeries being called off. he asserted. The Halifax manager claimed he received hostile treatment "all down the line", while in Montreal, with Norman Dawe, president of the Quebec amateur hockey association, Ignoring all messages until after the first game when he told the Canadians they were through "and then got Dudley to back him up." No arrangements were made to look after the Halifax team while it was in the ctrange city as was the custom in playoffs conducted by the C.A.H.A., Fitzgerald claimed. "The team was left to forage for Itself and still has not received money for expenses," Fitzgerald said, adding that thev got through by borrowing money from Alphonse Therien, secretary-treasurer of the Q AHA. The Canadians' manager aid Therien did all he could "after a poor start," which Therien said was duo to the fact the Quebec authorities had received no authorization from Hanson Dowell, of Middleton, N.S.. C.A.H.A.. representative in the Maritimes. to lend , the Halifax team money. During the game itself, Fitzgerald said, play was rough with the Halifax team being boarded time and again. The referees, he said, "did nothing about the boarding." and the Canadians were unable to organize themselves for that type of play until too late. Fitzgerald attributed his team's defeat to stage fright and claimed his players forgot team work in attempting to impress Montrealers. "The Roysls have a bunch of good forwards but their defence isn't so hot and if we played them again SUN AGAIN IS BEST OF CALUMET STRING Trainer Ben Jones Holds That Colt Looks Like a Kentucky Derby Winner Lexington. Ky March 31. ) It's Sun Again as far as Calumet Farm is concerned for the 1042 Kentucky Derby but trainer Ben Jones Is none too optimistic that the muscular son of Sun Teddy and Hug Again will repeat Whirlaway's 1941 victory. The Derby. May 2 at Churchill Downs, is still five weeks away and a lot of things can happen between now and then. Musing about Sun Again's chances for the $75,000 classic, Jones said: "At least he looks like a Derby winner and will make a show in the parade (to the post)." Sun Again suffered a minor leg ailment while on the west coast, setting back his training schedule. He has run three-quarters in better time than 1:14 but Jones ten't certain he will be ready for the bruising mile-and . dinner Dcrbv run. "It's going to be a close fit." commented the trainer, "but with a good break in the weather. I believe we will Bet there.

CAGE TOURNEY LISTED Ontario-High Schools to Com. pete April 7 and 8 London, Ont., March 3 1 .(CP) The Central Ontario Secondary Schools Association will sponsor a tournament of senior high school basketball champions of Ontario at Toronto April 7 and 8. The playoff was discussed at an executive meeting of the Western Ontario Secondary Schools Association held here.

HARVEY DUBS WINS BOUT Beats Pelaia by Decision in 10 Rounds Chicago, Mar.h 31 P) Harvey Dubs, Windsor, Ont., welterweight, scored a 10-round decision last night over Ernie Pelaia, Beaver Falls, Pa., in the main bout of the Marigold Gardens card. The voted for Dubs but the referee called the clean, fast fight a draw. Dubs weighed 148 Vi. Pelaia 152. they couldn't beat us by more than two goals," he asserted. UNAWAREOFAflRIVAL Q.A.H.A. Head Claims He Did Not 'Know Team Was Here Norman Dawe, president of the Quebec Amateur Hockey Association, said yesterday it was "no fault of anybody at this end" If the manager of Halifax Canadians had complaints to make about the treatment accorded his team last week in a junior playoff game against Montreal Royals. The Halifax manager, Walter Fitzgerald, charged that his team had received hostile treatment "all down the line' and that Dawe had ignored all efforts to communicate with him until after the first game. Royals won the game 12-3 and the remainder of what was scheduled to be a best of three series was cancelled. Fitzgerald said no arrangements had been made to look after the club in Montreal "We haven't a single bit of correspondence to indicate when the Halifax team was coming to Montreal," said Dawe. "If the team or the Maritime Branch of the C.A. H.A. had communicated with us we would have had someone at the station to receive the club as is always our custom. As it was we didn't even know when Halifax reached town." Dawe said that the Halifax team evidently had gone straight from the station to an hotel of its own choosing "not the one that we regularly use to accommodate out-of-town teams playing a series in Montreal." After the game, said Dawe, Halifax officials had informed him that the team did not have any expense money. Dawe said it was not up to the Q.A.H.A. to provide the Halifax team with funds but that the Association had done so after "receiving an O.K. from W. A. Hewitt of Toronto, the C.A.H.A. Registrar. Dawe said money had been advanced for the hotel bill and the team's train fare home. "I never was able Bt any time to get In touch with Fitzgerald although Alphonse Therien (Q.A.H.A. secretary-treasurer) and myself tried for one full Jay to do so but the officials I did talk to seemed angry at their own hockey association, rather than us," Dawe said. "Now that the team is back in the Maritimes it seems that , we're the ones to blame." HERSHEYBEARSWIN OYER CAPITALS 5-4 Come from , Behind in Overtime to Square A.H.L.

"The Harbor Bridge is not a speedway," Col. E. A. Williams, head of the Harbor Police, declared last night. "Unfortunately, a lot of motorists think it is, and some of them have been 'clocked' at anywhere between 50 end 70 miles an hour over the bridge," he said. "We're after them this time and we mean business," said Col. Williams. "We've caught some of them, including one Lennoxville man who was hitting 70 miles an hour and who had false licence plates on his car. He was taught a severe lesson in court yesterday." (Col. Williams apparently referred to Garnett R. Bennett, of Lennoxville, who was arrested early Sunday morning, and who appeared in local police court Monday charged with reckless driving and the false-plates offence. He was fined $50 and costs on the . first charge and $15 and costs on the second.) "The speed limit over the Harbor Bridge is 25 miles an hour," the police head stated, "and motorists, in addition, are supposed to slow down below that mark while passing the St. Helen's Island road." "That law is going to be enforced." he declared emphatically. Pointing out that slower driving would not only be less hazardous but would help the country's war effort in saving gas, and wear and tsar on motor-vehicles, Col. Williams said he had given instructions to his traffic officers to keep the bridge under close speeder surveillance henceforth. FOSTER RE-ELECTED CADET LEAGUE HEAD Air Force Officer Tells Group Civilian Sponsors Have 'Tremendous Job' Gttawa. March 31. CB George B. Foster of Montreal has been reelected president of the Air Cadet League of Canada, league headquarters announced today following the annual meeting of directors yesterday. Two new members, Group Capt. H. P. Crabb. Royal Canadian Air Force, Ottawa, and D. A. Ross, Calgary, were elected to the national board. Group Capt. Crabb told the meeting that civilians in the league sponsoring aviation training for boys had "a tremendous job" to do. The urgent need of the Air Force was for men suitable for training as pilots and observers. "We need more men with the physical and educational qualifications for these positions than now 3 .1 v GEORGE B. FOSTER, K.C. are available," said Group Capt. Crabb who is R.C.A.F. director of manning. The training of air cadets was a means of filling the need for men with the necessary qualifications. He advised against the training of boys who would not be able to take their place in the Air Force as it made for costly procedure and disappointment to both boys and the civilian supporters of the league. The league board agreed that the air cadet syllabus of training should be modified slightly to mesh with the initial training school course of the R.C A.F. This work is expected to average four hours a week for two 10-month terms with most cadet squadrons, Group Capt. Crabb said. It was decided the league should concentrate mainly on enrolling boys of 15 to 18 years and only take boys under 15 as juniors in special cases. New league vice-presidents are A. W. Carter, Vancouver; W. T. White, Halifax, and D. R. MacLaren, Winnipeg. v Other new- officers are the honorary secretary, fArthur L. Melling, Montreal, and 'executive members, R. H. B. Ker, Victoria: C. A. Gray, Ottawa; G. B. Foster, A. L. Melling, A. R. Brennan, Summerside, P.E.I.; G. R. Hodgson, Montreal; D. R. MacLaren, and an R.C.A.F. representative.

N. Buzzell Says Taxation in City and Province Would Provide Funds TALKS TO OPTIMISTS Protestant Committee of Education Member Recommends Independent Board to Set Rates Funds to provide for an up-to-date system of education in this province, both on the Island of Montreal and throughout the rest of the province, can be realized from additional revenues raised by assessing and taxing industry both in Metropolitan Montreal and throughout the province on the same basis, L. N. Buzzell, a member of the Protestant Committee of Education, suggested yesterday in addressing the weekly luncheon meeting of the Optimist Club in the Windsor Hotel. "This work could best be done by an independent board of assessors appointed by the provincial Government," Mr. Buzzell stated. "Its duty would be to see that all industries paid their fair share for education and that the resources of all be pooled to educate rich and poor children alike." Pending such tax reforms, financial aid must be forthcoming from the provincial Government the speaker claimed. "It is not unreasonable to expect that provincial Government grants to education should be increased since the Quebec Government makes the lowest contribution to public school education of any pro vince, in the Dominion," Mr. Buzzell maintained, adding that increased grants lor education would mean curtailment of Government spending in other directions. Dealing principally with the financial aspects of Quebec's educa tional problem. Mr. Buzzell also re ferred to compulsory education, em- pnasizing mat mere are out lew countries of the world that do" not insist on a minimum of educational proficiency being realized as a necessary pre-requisite to citizenship. There is nothing of tyranny or oppression in compulsory education, Mr. Buzzell urged, pointing out that it is one of the first of many phases of social economy that have engaged the attention of progressive countries for many years. SAYS SYSTEM HAPHAZARD. Quebec's system of taxation for educational purposes is haphazard, Mr. Buzzell charged. With the exception of municipalities falling under the Montreal Protestant Central. School Board, there is no uniform system of real estate taxation for school purposes in force in municipalities throughout the province. Insofar as Metropolitan Montreal is concerned, Mr. Buzzell continued, the Quebec Government makes practically no grants for education. "The school boards under control of the Montreal Protestant Central School Board educate about two-thirds of the Protestant school children in the province, and yet the province contributes only about 70 cents towards the education of a r-hild. which costs the Central .Board $100 annually," the speaker explained. Lack of funds is adversely effecting Quebec's educational system by causing "entirely inadequate" salaries for teachers, Catholic as well as Protestant, and by tending to perpetuate a rigid curriculum which is not giving a practical education to a great number of boys and girls attending schools. There is a growing feeling that the Montreal Protestant Central School Board should be replaced by a new island board composed of at least 15 men and women "which would administer Protestant education throughout the Island of Montreal and which would bring about sounder financial and pedagogical administration," Mr. Buzzell pointed out. Under this plan, the speaker ex- filained, administration of educa-ion would be in the hands of a superintendent, with jurisdiction over all pedagogical matters in the island's schools; a secretary-treasurer, in charge of accounting and finances of all Protestant education on the island, and a building superintendent, responsible for the maintenance of all school buildings. These officials would be responsible to the board. Suggestions are also being put forward that, insofar as rural Quebec is concerned, regional school boards should be established to centralize the administration of education in rural districts, the speaker declared. ."We all realize that the most important job of all Canadians at the present time is to win this war and that all our national efforts should be directed towards this end," Mr. Buzzell concluded. "I suggest, however, that there is no problem on the home front that needs greater consideration than that of maintaining and improving our educational stan-dards WATER WASTE OFFENCE Bermuda Prepares for Expected Dry Season Hamilton, Bermuda, March. 31. (CP Cable) A water conservation order issued by the government today labelled wasting water an offence in this colony, where rains provide the chief source of drink-in fluid. The regulation was affected at a time when tanks are .filled with the winter's rains, it was explained, to obviate the condition that arose last summer when a record drought forced chartering of a "mercv" shin to bring water from the United States. While penalties were not specified, the new order said water would be deemed wasted whenever a greater quantity was used for any purpose than was reasonably required. Also, rain-water must not be used for washing or watering lawns and ornamental plants. Sea-water or the island's brackish well water may be used for these purposes. , Nearly 90 per cent, of the people of India live in villages. Spanking Experiment Puts Student in Court Cambridge, Mass., March 31 (JP) A 17-year-old Harvard freshman from Chicago, accused of luring a 10-year-old girl to his room and spanking her so that he could study her psychological reactions, was held in $2,500 bail in district court today.- The youth, who was booked as Eugene Golub, pleaded not guilty to a charge of indecent assault and battery, and was held in $2,500 bond for trial.

Sullivan, who encountered the child and her mother in a hospital to wheih the girl had been taken for examination. JAP BOMBS SCORE ON BATAN HOSPITAL 'Number of Casualties' Caused in Marked Building, Heretofore Avoided (Special to The New York Times and The Gazette.) Washington, March 31. Bombs dropped by the Japanese on Batan Peninsula yesterday struck a base hospital and caused "a number of casualties," the War Department announced today in a communique describing continued operations in that theatre. The hospital hit, the announcement added, "was plainly marked and had been carefully avoided by the enemy bombers until yester day." The attack on the hospital oc curred in the midst of operations in which the Japanese apparently have fallen back on the procedure of using bombers ' to "soften" the defensive positions while reorganizing their ground forces. The United States and Filipino defend ers recently threw back a mass land auacK wnicn reporiea neavy casualties to the enemy. The only group action reported in the past 24 hours consisted of "sharp clashes between patrols" which created sporadic activity but necessarily are inconclusive in the long run of the battle. In pursuing the new type of attack, the Japanese have bombed pretty steadily the front and rear positions of the defenders. Even heavier aerial attacks have been made on the harbor defences, which cluster around the fortified Island of Corregidor. It appears to observers here that the most persistent efforts are being made to reduce the island forts which have continuously blocked the entrance to Manila Bay. Lieut. General Jonathan M. Wain-wright, successor to General Douglas MacArthur in command of the Philippine defences, has reported each day that these attacks on the forts have caused little damage and few casualties. In addition to the air raids, the Japanese yesterday pounded the forts with shells from shore batteries established on the site of the abandoned Cavite naval base, and the forts returned this fire. One enemy launch was destroyed in Manila Bay by fire from Fort Hughes, ihe communique added. Lack of word concerning other areas indicated that no action had been reported today from other sec tions of the . Philippines.
