Goodwin was named Ottawa's representative to the convention. A letter was received from Air Marshal H. Edwards, president of the Ottawa Humane Society, asking that the annual grant of $1,500 be increased to $5,000. The society has additional commitments, the board was advised, and would need further funds to carry them through.
The matter was taken under advisement. A committee from Ottawa's secondary schools.

Blr Ayimer explained rus visit to Canada as a "busman's holiday."

Thanks Canada Sir Aylmer thanked Canada for the valuable contributions she made in men ana material to tne war, and "for th-e money sent over to the firemen's auxiliary fund in England, wnich is still supporting 1,364 chil- dren at home." During the afternoon the dis- tineuished British vLsitor was shown an example of methods used in Canada to fleht fires, when he at- tended a first-class demonrtration, staged by Ottawa firemen on the Driveway, south of the Rideau canal, opposite the exhibition grounds. Sir Aylmer expressed himself as "highly impressed" by the "smart, Ottawa will ask the provincial government for a share of the gasoline tax, it was decided at yesterday afternoon's meeting of the Board of Control. The suggestion that the additional revenue be sought came from Con. E.
A. Bourque. We must maintain many miles of streets that are part of the pro vincial highways, links of the high ways, that makes me think it is reasonable to ask the province for a share of the gasoline tax that is paid by all who use the roads and highways, part of which we must maintain," Con. Bourque stated. Got $77,000.
He reminded the Board of Control that in 1939 a similar application was made and it netted Ottawa $77,000. Meanwhile the war intervened and with the province abandoning tax fields to the federal authorities -it resulted in Ontario curtailing its payments, through gasoline tax sources, to the municipalities. With the war over Con. Bourque thought the application for gas tax revenue should be renewed. "I think it's a good idea," said Con.
Finley McRae and Con. G. W. Goodwin and the Mayor concurred. As yet no official request has come to the City of Ottawa for the naming of two additional members to the Federal District Commission under the terms of a recently passed order-in-council enlarging the commission to deal with the plans for the development of Greater Ottawa under the Greber plan.
The Mayor's reply was in answer to a query from Con. Goodwin asking for a caucus of cotmcil to consider the appointing of the two city representatives on the enlarged commission. The Mayor gave assurance it would be done as soon as an official request came from the commission to the city authority. Little Support. The suggestion that the City of Ottawa annex a part of Nepean township lying between the Rideau canal and Bronson avenue, made by Rupert McLellan, Ottawa contractor, received little support at the Board of Control meeting yesterday afternoon.
Mr. McLellan, in a letter, told the Board of Control that he had acquired 95 acres between the Canal and Bronson avenue which he purposed subdividing into lots, and on which he proposed erecting 100 or more new houses. Nepean town ship, he stated, was not in position to supply the necessary water and sewer services and he believed the area should be annexed and, with that done could then put in the desired services. F. C.
Askwith, commissioner of works, advised the board that the section was formerly used as a dumping ground. He said it was low-lying, very swampy, and he felt the contractor would be well-advised to make borings before proceeding with the project. He added that it would entail the installation of a pumping station to take care of the sewage for the area. The board decided to take the matter under advisement pending a report from the commissioner of works. Con.

CBC Taking Over Toronto, Calgary Station Channels Reconstructlon Minister Howe said yesterday in the Commons the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had applied for permission to take over the frequencies now used by station CFRB in Toronto and CFCN Calgary. He was replying to Arthur Smith (PC, Calgary West). M. J.
Coldwell, CCF leader, asked if licences to stations were listed on annual or permanent basis. Mr. Howe said they were issued on an annual basis Can Carry On MONTREAL, May 23. (CP) In applying for permission to take over the frequencies now used by station CFRB in Toronto and CFCN Cal gary, as announced in the Commons today by Reconstruction Minister Howe, the Canadian Broadcasting Company "has asked for nothing that belongs to any private inter I efficient manner in which the Ot- ers to cope with peace-time prob-tawa men perform their duties." lems. OTTAWA CITIZEN.
Parliament How far can members of Parliament go in taking advantage of their immunity from libel iuits in criticizing or abusing Civil Service: administration or individual civil servants, or even private citizens? Murt civil servants who are attacked accept in silence any and all abuse levelled at them by MP's, relying entirely upon their minister to answer on their behalf in Parliament? Can there be freedom of speech izr MP's and not for civil servants? These Questions, of course, are not tew in parliamentary proceedings. But, they have not been settled conclusively, or they would not have bobbed up, once again, as they did In a stormy scene in the Commons yesterday. Probably, they will never be finally and definitely decided because, quite obviously, there are rights and wTongs on both sides. Restraint On Both Sides A working solution of the vexed Questions, it would seem, lies in the realm cf restraint on both sides. MP's ought to be able to exercise their rights, responsibilities and Junctions as elected representatives cf the people by voicing their facts and opinions in guarded and gentlemanly, but effective and accurate language, and without resorting to personalities.
Ministers of the Crown, at all times, should be on their toes to protect employes in their departments from unfair criticism or abuse. Civil servants, if they feel they must reply to attacks made on them, should be specially guarded in their rebuttal language. It is quite true that a soft answer turneth away wrath and, oftentimes, is far more effective than provocative, re sentful, abusive reply. It is hardly the function of civil servants, however, to discipline MP's. Yesterday's Commons incident, reported at length elsewhere, arose when Capt George S.
White (PC, Hastings-Peterboro) rose on question of privilege to take sharp issue ith the press statement put out Wednesday by Donald Gordon, Wartime Prices and Trade Board chairman, refuting an earlier statement by Mr. White in the Commons that WPTB officials had used "Gestapo methods" in seeking to enforce the board's regulations. As. perhaps, might have been expected. Finance Minister Ilsley took 2vlr.
Gordon's part. He did so to the extent of declaring that the only "abuse" involved was in Mr. White's unwarranted use of the term Mr. Ilsley regretted he had not taken issue with Mr. White's statement when it was first made in the House.
Had he done so. there might have been a row in the House, but a spat, now and then, enlivens the proceedings, and Mr. Gordon might not have felt compelled to issue his press statement. Karl K. Homuth (PC, Waterloo supporting Mr.
White's con tentions in challenging the right of civil servants to criticize or admon lsh MP's, expressed his disgust. "Tins shows that in Canada we have bureaucratic administration and that the government no longer governs," Mr. Homuth asserted, amidst contradictory exclamations Irom the government benches. Mr. Gordon, of course, needs no defence from this correspondent.
However, it might be observed, in a kindly way, that Mr. Gordon might yut fewer strains on his own blood pressure, thereby rendering his admittedly difficult administrative less difficult for himself. One-Word Answer At long last, Arthur L. Smith (PC, Calgary west), got from Reconstruction Minister Howe yesterday a cne-word answer, "Yes" to his fre quently repeated questions recently whether the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is taking over the wave length hitherto granted, by annual license, to the private station, CFRB, in Toronto. CCP Leader Caldwell, later on, quite smoothly, asked a supplementary question and as promptly given additional information by Mr.
Howe about the explicit terms upon which some private stations have been allowed by CBC to use certain clear chan Eels reserved for high-power sta tions until such time as CBC re quired them for its own purpose In Short Supply J. H. Blackmore (SC. Lethbridge) voiced rather a poser when he asked Mr. Ilsley to table a list of all the commodities presently in short supply In Canada.
Mr. Ilsley said that would be very difficult, but it ould be a matter of opinion, on some commodities, whether they actually are in short supply at present However, Mr. Ilsley added he would "do his best" to get an answer to Mr. Blackmore's question If it were placed on the order paper. "Negotiations are proceeding," replied Labor Minister Mitchell to a question by G.
R. Pearkes, VC (PC, Nanaimo), whether there was anything new on the British Columbia loggers and mill workers strike. D. M. Fleming (PC, Toronto-Eg-linton) asked Mr.
Howe if the government contemplated Lssuing any further priority regulations on building materials. "What the government intends to do will be made known in due course." Mr. Howe replied. have nothing in mind today, but I may have something in mind tomorrow, I can't say."

25th LIMITI est, a. uunron, cnairman or mer- 6 revival of the Dominion Drama Festival in 1947 or as soon thereafter as possible. Notices have been sent out to the persons who were officers of the Festival in 1939. to the surviving members of the executive committee of that year, and to the surviving regional chairmen of 1939, and in some cases to others in the various regions who might be interested in assisting in the revival of the Festival. Under the circumstances, it is hoped to have an attendance representing Canada from coast to coast.
Several morths ago, Col. H. C. Osborne, chairman, and John A. Aylen, honorary director, pointed out the difficulties in the way of revival before the spring of 1947 at least.
In the meantime these still exist and there is no certainty that such problems as travel, hotel ac commodation, rationing, will have disappeared by a year irom now. A suggestion made at the coming meeting will be with regard to dis pensing with the final festival the first year and holding only re gional festivals, then holding a com plete festival, regionals and final, in the year following. Lively interest in the subject is manifested by the fact that at least one district festival has been revived and there has been considerable discussion with regard to these across the Dominion. Mrs. Louis White of Ottawa recently was adjudicator at the festival for Western Ontario held in London.
Belleville Judge To Probe Rubber Industry Dispute Appointment of Judge J. C. Cameron of Belleville, as a commissioner to investigate a dispute in the Canadian rubber industry was announced yesterday by Labor Minister Mitchell. The United Rubber Workers (CIO) has announced its intention of calling a strike of 10,000 rubber workers in 10 Ontario plants May 27 unless "satifactory" progress is made in negotiations for higher wages and shorter hours. Mr.
Mitchell said the appointment had been made after consultation with Hon. Charles Daley, Ontario labor minister, in an effort to avoid an interruption in rubber production which was "essential to the effective transition to a peacetime economy in Canada." In addition to an increase of 25 cents an hour and introduction of a 40-hour week the union is asking payment for overtime and for statu tory holidays, premiums to workers on night shifts and various indivi dual adjustments in wage rates. In the event Judge Cameron is unable to bring about a settlement of the dispute he is to report to the minister within 30 days making recommendations for settlement. In Toronto, Joe MacKenzie, district representative of the URW, said the union's strategy committee would meet to discuss the appoint ment but the strike deadline re mained unchanged May 27.

The exis tence of the track, especially in front of the grandstand, could not today be recognized and he suggest ed that in the event of the track again being Inaugurated it should be re-located where it would not sustain damage. He stated a dirt track had been installed some years ago and was used about three days each year. Con. Goodwin felt that over a period of time priority had been granted to the various football clubs using the park and he felt this was not entirely fair.
He believed some steps to provide the cinder track should be made and it was agreed that steps should be taken to pro vide the service. Mayor Lewis told the delegation that, already, the matter was under advisement.

"Very Good." It is easy to believe that Rita Hayworth was recently voted one of America's most seductive women by five prominent artists.
In this film she is absolutely delicious. And what's more, she matches her great beauty with a talent for acting, and runs smoothly through a serious and excitlne plot which tests her stage craft and mastery of lines most thoroughly. Her rendition of "Put the Blame on Mame" and "Amado Mio," com plete with sultry voice and a gay toss of auburn locks are well worth hearing, and her clothes are definitely designed to show her off at best advantage. The setting is Argentinian. The leading man.
