I ftPPLICATION FOR i LEVEL CROSSING Board of Control Also Would Ask Ry. Commission for Order to Strengthen Wellington St. Viaduct. Eoard of control, at a special meet-ir.z yesterday afternoon, decided to recommend to city council that an ipp'ication be made to the Board of Railway Commissioners for na order allowing a 3eel crossing over the rail-r.ay tracks at Somerset Street bridge snd also lor an order apportioning tne cost of strengthening the Wellington street viaduct. For many moons there has been r-iany and varied discussions over the ned of improving the Somer ,el street bridge. The present viaduct is not vide enough to serve the street car, motor traffic and pedestrians. In addition the roadbed and the bridge ("nprafly has fallen into such a state of disrepair that it is considered dangerous. Plans for a wider and stronger bridge were first discussed. With the new Prince of Wales bridge completed, tne number of railway trains passing under the Somerset street viaduct has been greatly reduced. i For Through Traffic I If the Wellington street viaduct Is rengthened, the Ottawa Electric Pailway Company has agreed that it continue the Albert street line lever this bridge, using it for through taflic to the western part of the city. 5 his would considerably lessen the fruunber of street cars crosiir.e the t ulway tracks at Somerset street. For luese reasons. t"he board of control, backed up by the opinion of the com-ji.iL-sioner of works and Mr. Noulan Cauchon, technical adviser of the town planning commission, is of the f pinion that a level crossing will serve up purpose without great danger, I mat it can be carried through for I -,uch less money than a new bridge vould cost and that the adjacent Labor Bill Is Rejected For Third Time LONDON. May 6-For the third consecume session, the House of Commons today rejected the Labor bill for "prevention of unemployment." The vote was 177 to 112 against the measure. The bill provided that 10-000,000 be set aside annually for state enterprises such as reforestation and drainage, on which the unemployed could get work. The government maintained that the bill served no practical purpose which was not already being carried out. ! I I ' X. WITH THE BOY SCOUTS property would be greatly enlianced ir. value. If the railway commission permits 'a level crossing, it will be asived to apijortion the cost. It will also be a-'ked to apportion the cost for strengthening the Wellington street viaduct as among the city, the Ottawa : Electric Railway Company, and the ,s:eam railway companies. agreement between the city and the O. E. ! niv. provides that any time, com-, nencing this year, the company will etend its line over the Wellington i street viaduct if it is properly I strengthened. ! appeal'dismissed TORONTO, May 6.

I Inspector Donald Myre, of the Quebec Liquor Commission, who speaks several languages with facil- ! lty and whose work as court inter preter at ths last term of the criminal assizes was favorably commented upon by the presiding justice, has been privileged to receive the ap- I pointment again for this term.

Next week the scouts of Ottawa will assist in the appeal for support for the Protestant Orphans' Home by placing collection envelopes in the pews of the various city churches for this purpose. Today was the closing day for entries for the inter-scout troop soit-bail league and it is hoped to have the league in operation shortly. News of some of the troops and packs of Ottawa follows: 16th St. Luke's Pack. On Tuesday the 16th pacK held their annual supper and hobby show. The committee, under the able direction of Mrs. W. Gallichan, prepared a most delicious supper. Dr. Hollingsworth presided and called on the sixers to give an account of their work, other leaders also spoke briefly of the work of the pack. Hoyes Lloyd gave a most interesting talk on birds we can find in and about Ottawa and L. L. Johnson, acting executive secretary, also spoke using the Boy Scout movement as his subject for a really interesting and educational talk. The parents of the cubs were invited to inspect the work of the boys and the pack in charge of Cubmas-ter A. Ward and Assistant Cubmas-terter C. Mann gave a demonstration pack meeting for the benefit of the visitors. Second star cubs gave a display of first aid bandaging followed by a pleasing group of cub games by the entire pack.

Twenty-eight scouts were present at last Monday evening's meeting. W. A. Proctor, a former scoutmaster, presented a beautiful silver cup for monthly competition between patrols. Scoutmaster E. H. Day, on behalf of the troop, thanked Mr. Proctor for his kindness and the scouts showed their appreciation by giving three lusty cheers and the troop yell. John Gill was introduced to the troop as a new member and will be trained by Patrol Leader Stanley Williams and his second. Prank Marshall. Scoutsmaster Milling from Copenhagen, Denmark, was a most welcome visitor to the troop and gave a brief address in which he told of the world's jamboree for scouts which was held at Copenhagen in 1924. i S out Miekie Read was proer.'ed nth his first class badpe. while Cohn McMillan received his second cla.-? badse a little later. : i Patrol leaders gave instructions and troop games were conducted I with enthusiasm. An interesting i teat-ire of the program was the .qualifying for the entertainers badg; , by Scout Ainslec Huber, when he entertained the troop for twenty mm-1 utes in first cla.s s'yle. 1st Ottawa Sea Scouts. The recent musical comedy "Jacks the Boy'' produced by the troop has . proved so successful that it has been ; decided to show it again at a later . date, probably about June 10th and the j boys intend to devote half of their j weekly meetings to rehearsals in ' order to keep the show in shape. I They have evolved a ticket selling ; ; scheme w hich will not only add a j ' goodly sum to troup f unds but will j i enable other troops to add consider- ! j ably to their funds for this summer's j j camp. ! ! Owing to the recent concert very : little troop work has been done late-; ly, but one thing is now definitely announced: For the past year and a j half the troop has been working on j a "Watch" system, an.l the results j i have shown a decided tendency to break away from scouting. From j now on the troop is working on the system as laid down in "Seamanship j and Scouting for Boys", the English i Sea Scout Manual, w ith rovers and i patrols instead of mates, watches and boat crews. This system will not again be changed and boys and parents can be assured that real scouting will be carried on. After consultation with the troop committee the scoutmaster announces that all boat work, with the exception of the annual ten day cruise, will be carried out on the waters of the Rideau or Lower Ot- j tawa. and parents are assured that i no boat will be allowed afloat unless I a competent scout leader is in charge. It is expected that Assistant ! Scoutmaster V, C. Webb will again j take charge of the ten day boat : cruise. As the first Sea Scouts will not, tinder any circumstance, do regular j boat work on the Upper Ottawa, it :3 j possible that a second Sea Scput troop composed o two or three of j the first with the balance new mem-I bers. may be formed with summer i headquarters at Britannia under one of the present assistants of the first j troop. This question will be discussed at the next meeting of the court I of honor and if it appears practical will be submitted to the executive of the local Scout Council for their approval. 27th Kiwanis Troop. Saturday afternoon about fifwsen of the scouts ?nd cubs assembled at the club and, under A.S.M. Buntlin, hiked to Hogg's Back, when ten of the boys passed their cooking tests and six qualified in their fire-lighting tests. Several action pictures of the boys were taken during the hike and will show them busily engaged at the various tests mentioned above. The scouts were instrumental in extinguishing several grass fires which they discovered while en route. SCOUTER.

L'ti2 ICE SAVES FOOD (CONTRIBUTED) Some weeks ago we called for particulars of service from those senior cierks who had on regrading been classified as Grade III. The particulars desired were: nature of duties now performed, nature of duties performed when originally promoted to senior clerk. Have these duties in any v.ay changed since regrading? Dates of appointment and promotion and salary range to which it is possible to go (i.e. to $1,680, or in the case of the audit clerks, to $1,740). There are, we know, some four f hundred or more of these individuals who have been regraded as Grade III but to date not more than approximately two dozen have taken the trouble to send in to the secretary, Mr. V. L. Lawson, the particulars esked for. There is a trite old saying that "The Gods help him who j helps himself." The executive coun-i til of the association are willing at ; all times to assist any group or I groups who have been unfoitunate, j but we have the right to expect that j they will be at least willing to pass i f.long the information which will en-1 able our committees to work intelli- ecntly in their behalf. It is an unfortunate fact that many who have real grievances and who do not mind voicing them to their fellow workers are very reticent in coming forward with their troubles to the quarter where they can be sure of receiving a proper appreciation and where no stone will be left unturned in the effort to obtain redress. It is. however, useless calling on High Heaven to witness their woe unless they take measures to be sure that the voice of their complaint is heard In the proper tiuarter. So we can only say "come over with the goods" and we will do our best to help you. We hae before us the report of the organizing secretary, Mr. Elder I'raser. and quote Item 2. thereof: The following departmental branches have not been heard from: Health Dept.. Elgin building. R.

"The bond of military service is one if the strongest that can hold men together," declared Major-Gen. J. H. MacBrien speaking before oiiicers of I isgar and Glebe Collegiate, Technical School and LaSalle Academy cadet corps at their annual banquet held last night at the Daffodil Tea Rooms. Major-Gen. MacBrien told his audience that cadet training was a splendid thing not only from the standpoint of training youni men to defend their country in case of necessity but also from that of developing responsible citizens. Speaking of the criticism to which tne cadet movement lias been treated recently, he said that it would do good. Already people who have never before shown interest In cadets are beginning to make inquiries, and if the eiiticism keeps up it is honed that ihe government grant to the movement may be Increased next year. Cadet Battalion Commander A, W. Iieall, In calling for a toast to Maj.-Gcn. MacBrien, drew attention to the fact that it was the last occasion on which he would be with the cadets and thanked him on behalf of all t-iosc present for the splendid help and support he had given to the movement.

But Still Feel There is Hope For Vast Improvement in Situation. Bci'er weather helped the cam-paii,.i for the blind yesterday. The collecting stations returned considerably larger sums than on Thursday. As torn pared with the firt two days of the campaign of 1923. however, the results made it quite clear that only ery large reecipts today can bnr.g the final total within many thou, a ads of dollars of the objective. The execu'ive officers are therefore discouraged. Nevertheless, they feel that there is still time for a vast improvement of the situation. The receipts for the day were loughly calculated last night to have been S2.000. With $2,300 on the first day, this brings the total up to $4,-300. Special Donations.

Production to di'e in this content is still considerably behind last year s figures. Egg weights show improvement upon those of the previous contest. At this time last year there were only eleven pens that could claim an average of 24 oz. eegs tor the first six months, there are more than double that number this year. The number of" birds with blanks increased this week, the cause being broodiness in pome cases. ' Excellent team work took place this week and a large majority of th--pens scored over fifty eggs each. Six pens reached or passed the sixty mark, some of these earning point ! totals that show ed egg weights to ; average well over 24 oz. to the dozen. 1 The heavy breeds returned the best seven day results, the Barred Rocks siar.oir.e f:r t. fre points ahead ci ,tr.e R.Mde Island P.edJ, with ihv ' Wh.tft Leghorns ne:;t. i The White Leghorn? continue to ifceip an e,y lead in the rcuits "o j date, and this week the Barred t Rocks secured the second place a i pouit ai.d a hall the bene: oi ti.e !

Although court sat until six-thirty last evening In an effort to conclude the trial of Rosario Lefebvre, charged at the Hull Criminal Assizes with causing bodily harm to Walter Scarf, this city, by wantonly driving an automobile, it was found impossible. All the witnesses were heard and the addresses by counsel to the Jury w ill be proceeded with this morning, after which court will adjourn until Monday, when the case of Edwin Rout-hffe, of Aylmer. charged with having stabbed Darcy Barnes at Val Tcteiau last winter, will be taken up. 1 The case arises out of an accident which occurred Inst Christmas morning, when, while Wallace Scarf war. driving a car containing the complainants on Maisonneuve street, Hull, cn route to Uallnrau Point, an- j other car driven by the accused, charged into them '. the intersection ! of St. Laurent street.
