I The OttWa Journal PublulMd by The Journal Puhluhln Co. at CHUn IA4. 137 taw. t lit Spark It Ottawa. Ontario. THURSDAY, AUGUST 27. 1964 Should Cut Deep In Securities Inquiries i This newspaper had sucb faith in the Ontario Securities Commission that on Aug. 7 it questioned the need for the RoyaJ Commission which Is investigating the gyrations of Windfall Oils .and Mines stock. Our case was that the securities commission has comprehensive powers of inquiry, an investigator appointed by it having the same rights as a Supreme Court judge to demand the presence of witnesses and the production of documents.; ' ; ' Because of the great trust and power which the people of Ontario have given, the securities commission, it is a shock to the province that one of the senior commission officials, Mr. John H. Campbell, director of administration, has been' suspended from duty indef- ,1 ' I . u , ,., . . . . witery. Aiioraey-vienerai wisnan suites -that Mr. Campbell was "quite thoroughly involved" in dealings which caused Windfall shares to rise and fait Mr. Campbell declares that he has done nothing of which to be ashamed and he expects his suspension to be lifted when the Investigation ends. For his sake it will be hoped his expectations are justified, but in any case the public ease of mind has taken an awful jolt The mere allegation by a minister that an official of a commission appointed to protect the public interest in the field of securities hat been involved in dealings which saw Windfall rise from 58 cents Jo $5.70 and then crash back to 80 cents is enough to bring instant alarm and lasting doubt Time was when Canadians had a built-in pride in the public service of all levels of government The best In the world" was ' phrase that came easily to our lips. In recent year however' too many investigations have proved necessary. The result of growing cynicism will be impairment of public faith In government aid government service, and a consequent falling off of a desire to enter : government by people capable of wise and devoted service. ., The inquiry into tnis latest case must therefore embrace painstaking investigation. If Mr. Campbell is found at fault the public should be told clearly of his fault, of his consequent punishment and of steps taken to clean house for there is at stake here the general reinforcement of public. confidence in, government. If he If found to have done nothing wrong then an Attorney-General should weigh his words more carefully when be suspends a man tor investigation. . M . Th Grab Bog of th Fair 1 Sex and sausages make strange bedfellows. Yet there they are, side by side, at the Ex. On the midway, through a swallowed microphone, a sideshow attendant barks the measurements and skills of the undulating beauty beside him who can limbo seven inches low. A few yards away the good ladies of St, Giles are valiantly grilling wieners. Lsusdowne Park this week is a city of violent contrast, the place where people can expect to find the unexpected. Under the shadow of a clanging rouer-co&sier a urea woman is caimiy cutting through a shoe to demonstrate ev knife that never dulls. Boisterous youths with bulging muscles hurl rubber balls at stuffed dolls. On the other aide of the canvas perspiring matrons methodically arrange com kernels on a, bingo card. Tall and splendid in boots and spurs a Royal Canadian , Mounted Police constable strides down the midway swinging a white calfskin handbag. A candy - coated child slumbers on a bench beside a luxurious double bed. "' ' High above- the midway a score of girls scream in happy terror'. A bull bellows from the cow palace. In front of the grandstand the NORAD band blares brassily. Popcorn mutters over fir under the stands. The smells ot frying onions, cotton candy and bar- , becued beef smother (almost) the pas oral odors from the livestock buildings. Dust and gasoline fumes choke the hot pavement, but inside - the cool tent where arthritics have " their dainty needlework on display the perfume is of lace and lavender. Here is the Joyous cacophony, the grab bag of the fair. Our Leaden Should Take to the Hills ; U.S. Defence Secretary McNamara, with a plateful of crises to choose from every morning, has been away from Washington climbing in the Alps. Snow defeated his attempt to climb the' Mat-terhorn but with his son and five friends ha was having a fine mountain holiday while South Viet Nam; Cyprus and the rest of the low lands boiled with trouble. Mr. Pearson and Mr. Diefcnbaker, too. used to go on holiday. The present Prime Minister strolled around a district golf course with a handful of clubs and the former Prime Minister had a particular delight In fishing in Saskatchewan. At the risk of sounding impolite we' contend there Is nothing to prevent the Canadian leaders taking a day or two off and leaving the tasks of Parliament to their lieutenants. The memory of how well Parliament progressed when Mr. Pearson was at the Commonwealth Conference in London raises the wonder whether it would do twice as well with both away. Suppose they both went to the mountains, and on coming down discovered agreement on a, flag a far, more useful ascent than the usual one of lugging flags to the top!

The solution didn't come easily. It took all the eHorU of that Did Democratic pro, David Lawrence, the bead of th cre-d n 1 1 a I s committee and a former governor of Pennsylvania, and Sen.

Humphrey is probably the best choice from every point of view that Mr. Johnson could have made. He is an extraordinarily able man who seems to have checked youthful impulsiveness without losing his idealism. There are now no real differences in .qualifications for either the presidency 'or the vice-presidency. Mr. Johnson, hove all, is aware of that .The kind of balance which' Sen. Humphrey brings to the ticket Is of tha best kind a , balance of aptitudes and instincts.

Mr. Johnson has not the enemies in or out of the party that Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman or John Kennedy had. 'But he does not arouse other political emotions either. The chemistry, the magic, the affection are not there. The Democrats know they must have Mr. Johnson. They know, too, that he is a consummate politician and If any manfean keep their party in the White House" for another four years it is Lyndon Johnson. Why the lack of real warmth,, the cheers coming from the head rather than the heart? The answer may be that Mr. Johnson is too calculated, that he is a political IBM machine saying or doing nothing at icss i, a successful solution sortie moderate southern Demo crats because he Is so outspoken, , .

In the beginning they didn't have time, what ., with Indians, breaking land and getting enough , sleep. Now the land Is conquered enough that it can be admired, with the help of color-film cameras, and the appreciation pf views Is no , longer the prerogative of old ' ladies, ; vapid Englishmen and daft artists. " Nowadays arguments on views cannot be limited to Canada with Princes Street in Edinburgh and apple-blossom time In Southern France only a few hundred dollars' worth away. And who are we to say the Grand Canyon Is any the less for being American or1 the beaches of Barbados reduced In beauty for being beyond our borders? We hope no argument on views will ever be concluded by victory on one side or the other. If they are interminable and polite so much the better. ' !T , tion of th.
