' Damage estimated at approximately $75,000 was caused by fire which destroyed two sections of the Ottawa Electric Company car barns at Rockcliffe at 10.30 o'clock this morning. Forty street cars stored in the barn were totally destroyed. J. M. Ahearn, "assistant manager and purchasing agent for the O.E.R., said the loss was covered by insurance. The barns are used for storage of the older cars and other equipment not in general use. lie. Ahearn was unable to state whether or not the bams would be rebuilt, this depending upon the demand for storage space. The cause of the fire is unknown. At first it was thought that it might have been due to an electrical short circuit but Mr. Ahearn said that all electric power to the barn was shut off at the junction of Sussex street where the tracks turn off from the Rockcliffe line to the barns. Previous Outbreaks. There have been previous fires of a serious nature at the same barns, the last being in 1932 when the damage ran about $50,000. May Be Transients. It is possible that today's fire originated from transients. Mr. Ahearn said that during the past few years the company has been considerably annoyed by trespassers breaking into the building and living there. Whether or not anyone was in the building within the past 24 hours or so is not yet known. Ottawa firemen were called by someone running to No. 6 station at Sussex and John streets, and stating that the car barns were on fire. Capt. George Harris notified the fire alarm office and responded. Deputy Chief O. Char-bonneau, on his way to the fire, noticed large clouds of smoke and Immediately called for additional apparatus.

The chief found a dynamite fuse near the safe. The handle on the safe was snapped and dynamite powder placed in the hole so made. The explosion could not have been violent since none of the windows in the office was smashed. There are no residences or other places of business within a mile. The safe breaking was first not-Iced by Percy Guest, Shell manager, at six o'clock this morning and he notified Chief Greer, who reports himself without any clue as to the identity of the thieves.

Blind Montreal Pianist Is Giving Canada Prominence Canadian Press. ' LONDON, June 23. Mary Munn, blind Montreal girl, Is placing Canada in a prominent niche in the International realm of music. Miss Munn has aroused critics of various European capitals to a high pitch of acclaim for her brilliant performances as a concert pianist. In Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Paris and London, she has been hailed with enthusiasm and upon her head have fallen such tributes as "superb," marvellous technique," "master of interpretation." All this praise she has earned despite what ordinarily would be acknowledged as a tremendous handicap. Miss Munn has been blind from birth. In her latest appearance In London, the Montreal artist won acclaim through a recital of diversified selections ranging from the old masters such as Handel, Bach, Brahms and Beethoven to such moderns as R. Vaughan Williams. Bcla Bart ok and Tobias Matthay. Her rendition of Beethoven's Son-H Toll of Disease Far Greater Than That of War, Lord Tyveetlsmuir Tells Medical Men. "The , true life-savers," Lord Tweedsmuir told the Canadian and Ontario Medical Associations today, "are the doctors and not the pacifist." The Governor-Gpneral paid a brief visit to the Capital today to be guest of honor at a luncheon of the two medical bodies, coming from Quebec by train. "Supposing we had tomorrow universal peace assured for all time," he said, "there would be no real security for human life." His Excellency declared that "today every sane man must be a devotee of peace, for most of us, except the very young, have had personal knowledge of the terrible consequences of war. "Heaven forbid that I should minimize these terrors; the best guarantee of peace is that the world should remember them. But great though the toll of war is, if you will look back through history you will find that the toll of dis ease far greater." Greater Than In War. The Governor-General drew on his store of knowledge to tell his audience that "in history we find that the loss of life by plague has always bppn infinitely greater than the losses on the battlefield.; The plague in Athens devastated her far more than the Peloponnesian war. In the Crusades it was not the deaths on the field that depleted Europe, but the leprosy which was brought back from the East. In the Thirty Years' war in Germany it was pestilence and not battle that wrought the worst devastation." His Excellency declared that man "is a septic animal and if he is given a chance he poisons himself and his neighbor?." He recalled that in the Franco German war of 1870 the smallpox which followed in Germany "killed more men by far than France lost on the battlefields."

Helvering of the Internal revenue bureau told a United States congressional .tax inquiry committee today the government believed Cecil De Mille, movie producer, had made a "purposeful attempt to evade surtaxes" on his income through creation of a personal holding company. . Helvering testified De Mille some time ago formed a corporation, "which he completely dominated, consisting of himself, members of his family, and his attorney." . "This," he added, "was an incorporation of what may be called the 'earning personality' of Mr. De Mille. "In - other words, De Mille's earning power was almost the sole corporate asset. - "De Mille, the individual, then went to work for De Mille, the corporation, at a salary far less than he knew he could command as a director. , "The corporation 'then sold De Mille's services to producing companies. The difference between Cecil De Mille's salary from his own 'corporation and his actual earnings as a motion picture director was put into the corporation."

Born in Montreal. ' Born In Montreal, Miss Munn was educated at Weston school and started her piano career under the tutelage of Catherine H. Smith. In 1926 she entered Mc-Gill University. About the same time she was awarded the final grade gold medal of the Associated Board of the Royal Academy and Royal College of Music, London, Miss Munn obtained her L.R.A.M. and certificate of merit at the Royal Academy and later continued her studies under Marlon K.

It is hoped circulation of these coins will be possible about the middle of next month. -' Minting of the King George V silver jubilee dollars, about 750,000 of which in all were circulated, has been discontinued for some little time past.

German government, after being notified of attacks on the cruiser Leipzig on June 15 and June 18, immediately informed the powers engaged in the Spanish sea control that they were unwilling to expose their naval forces, while entrusted with an intematiohal task, to further target practice off Red Spain. "The German government have limited to a minimum the guarantees which had to be asked for the safety of German ships in requesting a naval demonstration of the four control powers, thus to express definite, obvious and solidaric warning. . Solidarity Lacking. "Since the British and French governments were not ready to agree even to this minimum request, the German government regrets to slate that among the control powers that spirit of solidarity is lacking which forms an indispensable condition for the execution of a common international task. The German government has therefore decided to withdraw finally from the control scheme." Anglican Bishops Differ on German Church Situation Associated Press. LONDON, June 23. Two Church of England leaders differed sharply over the Nazt-church situation in Germany in a church assembly debate today on foreign relations. The Bishop of Chichester, Rt. Rev.

Arthur Headlam, to recognize that "the great majority of people in Germany who, accept national socialism do so as believing it represents a strong spiritual influence, that it saved their country from a feeling of despair, and that it may be looked upon as a real representation of Christianity." Threats to R. C. Faith. "I doubt that the Bishop of Gloucester could be blind to the fact that at the present moment the cardinals and the Pope are taking a most serious view of threats to the Catholic faith in Germany and to the fact that many people are awaiting anxiously and some are dreading publication of a Vatican white book on the German - Roman Catholic crisis," the Bishop of Chichester replied. "If I mere to make an appeal to Hitler I would say to him that we in the Churches of England want friendship with Germany, we want to make amends for the injustice Germany suffered under the Versailles Treaty. "But you 'Hitler) are making our position impossible by your treatment of Jews and non-Aryan Christians. "We appeal to you not to use your powerful might to oppress and persecute those who are much weaker than yourself." 2.0 Candidates Nominated For Free Stale Klerlioiii Canadian Press. DUBLIN, June 23.
