11 THE EVENING CITIZEN, Ottawa, Wednesday, November 7, 1945. Joe KroPs Status General Sales Lag But Ottawa Tops VL Objective With returns of four more days still to be accounted for, total subscriptions to the 9th Victory Loan campaign in Ottawa had exceeded, the combined objective of $51,500,000 for general sales and special names by $2,000,000 last night. Teenagers Picket High School All For Glamor Pickets and placards seem to be right to the fore these days and never let It be said that the girls at the High School of Commerce are behind the times There were looks of amazement from teachers and students alike to greet much-placarded pretty young teenagers who roamed the halls of Commerce today, taking a firm stand on of all things the subject of Glamor. Lower High Heels Colorful signs with emphatic "Lower High Heels!" or "Down with untidy pin-curls and kerchiefs," and "Not Too Much Make-up," printed on them, graced the backs of a number of the girls and caused a lot of laughter and comment throughout the classes. But the whole business got the nod of approval from understanding Harry Pullen, the pr'vicipal, and finally word got around that it was all an initiation stunt hatched up by the executive of the Commerce "Glamor Club," for the poor unsuspecting new members. And the wearing of placards does not by any means finish the Initiation of some 30-odd members of the Glamor Club. Tomorrow instead of something new being added -Jill iv filljl wJV rf1" i Christmas Just A Meatless Day To Prices Board By Austin F. Cross Evening Citizen Staff Add to those who don't believe in Santa Claus the name of Donald Gordon. For Wartime Prices and Trade Board, the flint-hearted outfit headed by Mr. Gordon has chosen to regard Christmas Day as just another Meatless Tuesday. No Change. "There'll be no change in the regulations," said a spokesman for WPTB when asked if they couldn't lift meat just for Christmas Day. "No change is contemplated," said the Prices Board. "Anyway," volunteered a spokesman, "they can get turkey." Long ago, Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake!" That was the time when the people were crying for bread, and the Queen speeded up her trip to the guillotine when she. said, lightly: "No bread? Let them eat cake!" Originally, the news came from Edmonton that the WPTB was not going to make any exception for Christmas and New Year's. "Why," wrote a Citizen reader this morning, "Christmas is the biggest feast of the year. Could Wartime Prices and Trade Board not lift this rule, especially for Christmas?" Back came the answer from the Meatless Tuesday Department: "No change is contemplated." No Extra Charge. Asked about keeping down prices for Christmas Day, a WPTB spokesman said that unless a restaurant served a special menu with extra food during the basic period back In the old days before the Prices Board functioned, they could not charge an extra price for a Christmas Day meal now." Going back to the subject of a meatless Tuesday, the Prices Board mouthpiece said: "These people will get turkey anyway." The Citizen disputed that, believed a lot of people would not be able to afford turkey, and would have to try something else. What the Prices Board also doesn't know, is that a lot of people in Canada can't get any kind of fowl at Christmas or any other time. Merry Christmas, Mr. Gordon, and a Happy New Year, too.

William Cummings Former Magistrate Passes In Ottawa President of the William R. Cummings coal, grain, feed and builders' supplies, Montreal road, Eastview, and the member of a pioneer family in that district, William R. Cummings died early last night in the Civic Hospital, following a lengthy illness. Mr. Cummings had been in the hospital since April, when he fell and injured his hip. Was Magistrate. Former police magistrate in East-view for many years, he was one of the best known and liked figures in the community. His family before him had lived there and Cummings bridge at the foot of Rideau street was named after his father. As a young man, he was prominent in athletics, taking part in many track and field events. He was keenly interested in horses and was a member of the Central Canada Exhibition Association. Mr. Cummings was also keen on livestock, and owned and worked his farm on the Montreal road. In Rugby Finals Becomes Issue TORONTO, Nov. 7 (CP) The debate over whether Joe Krol is eligible to play in the Canadian Rugby Union playoffs this fall con tinued intense today, but there was no official word from the CRU itself, which has the final Krol's status came to public attention yesterday when Secretary Harold Bailey of the Ontario Rugby Football Union said his union wanted to know whether Krol, currently with Toronto Argos after failing to make the grade with the professional Detroit Lions this season, could play in the CRU competition which begins when league titles are settled. T. H. C. Alison of Argos gave his club's views with "just say we have qualified Krol and we will use him." A CRU official said "his case will be taken up at a meeting and if we rule he has been a continuous resident of the country for one year, then he will be 'declared eligible." The Toronto Indians and Balmy Beach, due to play off for the ORFU title for the right to meet the Big Four winners in the Eastern Canada final, had nothing to say. They're too busy getting ready for three games with-each othr in the eight days starting next Saturday. Mitchell (From Page One) Police Stay in Barracks. Ontario provincial and Royal Canadian Mounted Police reserves, sent here to help security guards enter the plant to prevent possible damage from neglect, remained in their downtown barracks. Mr. Rowe said the union policy committee reached the decision of the barricade last night but withheld announcement until the membership could be inrormed. The statement said the union realizes a number of citizens have been inconvenienced "by the spontaneous action which resulted in so many members parking their cars in areas adjacent to the plant." Members did this on their own initiative. "However, they feel that their action was justified to avoid bloodshed. The union now appeals to all its members to co-operate with the city police department in clearing the area and removing the cars Immediately. "Steps will be taken immediately to effect this decision. Any citizen whose car is parked should report to the scene as soon as possible. This decision was approved overwhelmingly by the policy committee." Conferences between Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Blackwell and union officials yesterday were held behind closed doors, but lt was learned that Mr. Blackwell on several occasions expressed strong objection to the union's picketing policy and particularly to the barricade. Windsor city council warned Monday night that force might be used to remove the barricade. Yesterday Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Blackwell spent the day conferring with the union. First they attended a meeting in the council chamber with the 50-member policy committee and with Mayor Arthur Reaume. Later In the day a smaller meeting was held with Mr. Mitchell and his advisers, Mr. Blackwell and four union officers headed by Mr. Burt. At that meeting, it was learned, definite suggestions for a strike settlement were advanced. Mr. Mitchell had held preliminary conversations with Henry Ford II and senior officials of the company shortly after his arrival Monday night. The course of yesterday's meetings indicated that between those conversations and his discussions with the union yesterday he had hope of finding a common ground on which the parties to the dispute could meet. The federal minister said late yesterday that he had definite hopes of getting' the company and union representatives together later today. It was considered unlikely he would take this step unless he had a reasonable expectation of some agreement. The fact that Mr. Mitchell detained in Windsor the special plane in which he flew to the automobile city from Ottawa Monday was regarded as another indication that he was optimistic. Union's Position. At the end of yesterday's conference, which lasted a total of four and a half hours, Mr. Burt put the union's position this way: "The union will co-operate, and my understanding is the company will listen to any reasonable agreement." Mr. Mitchell described the attitude of both the union and company as "very fair." to the glamor -conscious girls, there will be something taken away all their make-up. So there will be at least a score and ten more Com merce lovelies at school tomorrow minus the usual dabs of lipstick rouge and powder. But then the games will be over the girls will be full-fledged members of the club, all set to turn their attention to the matter of improving their ap pearance. The girls of the Glamor Club meet every Wednesday after school hours, and under the direction of Mrs. A. Sedgewick. learn just what is right to wear, where and when and how Their supervisor helps them decide whether they are the frills and lace type or the plain, tailored Jane. The matter of make-up and hair do's, facials and manicures, posture and the care of clothes are all parts of the club's program for glamor. The girls aren't interested in being overdressed or heavily made up, they are sincerely interested in dressing sensibly and neatly, and making tne most 01 their appearance. Coldwell Urges "Open Palestine" "Immediate opening of Palestine for Jewish Immigration to the full est extent possible," was urged by CCF Leader J. Coldwell as one of five Canadian representatives at the International Conference of Christians for Palestine held in Washington last week-end. Mr. Coldwell put forward such views by way of full implementation of the Balfour Declaration which gave a pledge to the Jewish people that Palestine would be assured to them both as their homeland and as their haven of refuge from persecution and terror. Fulfillment of the pledges given to the Jewish people will enable promotion of the aims of the United Nations Charter in the Middle and Far East, "To my mind, the setting aside of Palestine, and the opening wider of our own gates, to provide refuge for the persecuted, and the oppressed is both a Christian duty and a humanitarian policy," Mr. Coldwell declared in a national broadcast at the Washington conference dinner with more than 1,000 present. Other speakers at the dinner were Senator Wagner and Mrs. Lorna Wingate, widow of Major General Wingate of Burma fame. In all, 29 countries were represented at the conference, including delegates, from New Zealand and Iceland. Mr. Coldwell stated at the conference he personally had cabled Prime Minister Clement Attlee urging the British Labor government to give immediate and full effect to the pledges made the Jewish people concerning diaries Led word The death took place at his residence, 174 Hopewell avenue, this morning of Charles Ledword, 85. formerly a well known employe of J. R. Booth where up until his retirement 10 years ago he was employed as a lumber grader. Born in Hawkesbury, the deceased had for the past 45 years been a resident of Ottawa. He was a member of Holy Trinity Anglican church, and a life member of Builders' Lodge, AF and AM. Unmarried, the sole survivor Is his sister. Miss Annie Ledword. Funeral services will be held at Hulse and Playfair Chapel on Friday at 11 a.m. with Archdeacon R. Turley officiating. Interment will be In Merivale cemetery. To Revise Smoke Nuisance Bylaws Says Askwith With better grade fuels becoming more readily procurable there will be a tightening up in enforcement of the smoke nuisance bylaw, F. C. Askwith, commissioner of works said today. Possibility of the bylaw being amended to permit its being more stringently enforced is also under Mr. Askwith is smoke inspector just as he is the weed inspector and many other officials all "rolled together" under the title of "commissioner of works." Checked By Meter Actually the work of checking on smoke nuisance is done through the civic complaints bureau and inspectors, armed with smoke meters, are sent out to check conditions when complaints are entered by people who object to the clear air of Ottawa being contaminated. Under the erms of the bylaw persons owning or operating steam engines or furnaces must use caution so that dense volumes of smoke are not thrown off for a longer period than six minutes in any one hour. But the bylaw does not apply to domestic establishments or to ore reduction works or refineries. It does cover apartment houses of three storeys or more in height. It does apply to locomotive engines, Mr. Askwith commented, and to public buildings. "During the war we made no particular effort to enforce the bylaw," Mr. Askwith said. "But if extreme conditions prevailed we did check them and seek a correction. The lack of good coals, the necessity of using any type of fuel, and many roals were of inferior grade, made for bad smoke conditions. The lack of experienced firemen also resulted In. undue smoke conditions. Unburncd Coal "Most heavy smoke is found to contain much unburned coal and this is due to poor firing. With the war over and better fuels procurable we will seek to amend and enforce the bylaw and a report will be sent to the Board of Control for its next meeting." Under the terms of the bylaw fines of from $25 to $50 can be imposed. Mr. Askwith said charges laid by the city have been sustained despite the fact 90 days must elapse from the time of the nuisance before a charge is laid. That means, he said, where a smoke nuisance is perpetrated in March the hearing may not take place until some time in June when the smoke nuisance has abated. Secret (From Page One) Saying that Britain should help the United States guard the atomic bomb "as a sacred trust for the maintenance of peace," Mr. Churchill, nevertheless, declared at one point that Britain "should make atomic bombs ourselves and have them here, even if manufactured elsewhere, in suitable safe storage, with the least possible delay." He asserted tne future of the atomic bomb should be decided by parliaments and responsible governments and "not by scientists, hof-ever eminent or ardent they may be." "I hope Great Britain. Canada and the United States will adhere to the policy declared by President Truman to keep the knowledge of processes as a sacred trust he said. Will Help Security "Possession of these- powers will help the United States and our Allies build up a structure of world security." Mr. Churchill reiterated a previous statement that the advantage (in development of atomic energy) would rest with the United States "for three or four years." "But even when that period is over, progress made by the United States scientists, both in experiments and manufacture, may well leave us and them with prime power and responsibility for the use of these dire, superhuman weapons." Can't See New War In solemn tones, Mr. Churchill said: "I cannot bring myself to visualize another world war. It is a somber thought that, as long as our new world organization is so loosely formed, such possibilities and their consequences are practically beyond human control." "My heart, is not carefree when I look out upon the scene. Those same uncontrollable anxieties which some of us felt in the years before war recur. "But we have also the hope which we had not got then, and that hope Is the strength and resolve of the United States to play a leading part in world affairs. "The valley is indeed dark and the dangers most menacing. Yet we know that not very far away are broad uplands of an assured peace. Can we reach them? We must reach them. It Is our sole duty." Mr. Churchill's statement came a day after Foreign Commissar Molo-tov of Russia said in a Moscow address that the atomic bomb could not be kept secret and that the Soviet Union would have "atomic energy and many other things." "It is the profound desire of the House that those feelings of comradeship and friendship which have been developed between the British and Russian peoples should not only be preserved but should be rapidly expanded," Mr. Churchill said. Mr. Churchill declared that the "world outlook is, in several respects, less promising than after the German capitulation of 1918," and added: "It is our duty to supply the solid grounds on which the hope (for the end of all wars) may rise again and live." Terming President Truman's 12-polnt foreign-policy program a "dominant factor in the present world situation." Mr. Churchill said: "Such a declaration at any time between the two wars would have prevented the second. "It would have made the League of Nations a world league strong enough to prevent the rearmament of Germany which has led us all through so much tribulation and danger and Germany herself to punishment and ruin." Alfred Lemieux, 1106 Somerset street west, pleaded guilty in city court to trespassing on private property of the CPR and was fined $15 and costs or five days. Henry St. Amour. 40, of 400 Friel street, was fined $10 and costs or 10 days for trespassing on private property belonging to Laurentian Terrace General Sales Behind Only $2,000,000 was required to reach the minimum objective of $20,000,000 in sales to the general public and investments by special names brought the cumulative total to 853.440,400. There was every indication that all loan records will be shattered in Ottawa. General sales yesterday netted $1,642,900 and special names $500,000, a total of $2,642,900 for the day. Capt. Gordon Grady's District team was in the lead yesterday but the team captained by Robert Greacen was still leading to date. National headquarters today re ported that cumulative sales reached $1,289,646,250 and were well within striking distance of the huge objective. Unless there was a drastic falling off in the rising tide of subscriptions the objective may be passed two days before the end of the three-week campaign. Subscribers numbering 58,522 In the province of Ontario yesterday bought bonds amounting to bringing the cumulative total for the province to $566,666,000.

Frances Grela of Winnipeg, now posted at No. 12 Administration Unit, CWAC, in Ottawa. '4- iW- 151, aft ii Si (From Page One) Ultimate Collapse. "If the tax means of securing revenue is carried on, as it will be, there will come an ultimate collapse of the whole structure and in that event it won't much matter where the city stands in relation to OER holdings provided lt oxvned the system at that time." Going further with the subject, the controller reminded that OER rolling stock, railway lines and equipment was at low ebb and purchase of the firm's assets, provided it could be affected, would entail a tremendous expenditure in replacements. Said one of the senior civic officials who has watched the progress of Ottawa's affairs over more than two decades: "The people of Ottawa have always been a little doubtful about city ownership of the railway system. They can remember when the system got along pretty much on a hand-to-mouth basis, dividends shrank, and it was only the start of hostilities, coincident with the influx of additional civil servants and governmental workers to Ottawa that the railway system began to pick up and show profits and return higher dividends. "But even though trade picked up tremendously the OER was caught flat-footed with a situation it could not meet rolling stock was at a low level railway lines needed repairs extensions of lines were planned but could not be proceeded with and to complicate things, no new equipment could be secured with which to improve the situation. But the OER did a good job during the war years with the equipment it had and came through, naturally, with some profits. Big Venture. "To take over, or plan to take over the profits of the company, at this time, confronts the prospective purchaser with the immediate necessity of replacing equipment, railway lines and rolling stock a tremendous capital expenditure. Whether or not the people of Ottawa would favor taking on this great capital debt at this time is a question only they could answer people these days are a little hesitant to assume new taxes in the light of those they already bear." Said one of the senior aldermen: "It's a grand idea ownership by the city of the OER but keep in mind the fact that Ottawa, on the basis of population, has more car owners than any other city in Canada. It goes with Ottawa being the seat of government. Those cars are coming back into use notice the increasing congestion on the streets coupled with that, remember that new and perhaps cheaper cars will come into production in the near future and contrast these things with the consequent and almost sure drop in the street car passenger transportation. Must Be Considered "These are things that must be considered before the city plans purchase of the OER. In addition it should be remembered that street cars are on the way out and will, ultimately, be supplanted by buses, the securing of which means huge capital outlay both in buying the buses and in the repair of street roadbeds incident to the removal of the. car lines." But as against the skepticism of the city fathers who see many obstacles to the idea of city ownership the exponents of purchase say there is no foundation for the belief the government will seek, to force muni cipalities to pay excess profit taxes on city owned utilities. That situation will never develop. The mil lion or more dollars the city would have in revenue through not having to pay excess profits would go a long way to meet any possible falling off in passenger traffic and they main tain Ottawa will continue to grow since there can be no decline In the Capital's status as the years pass. Dealing with capital outlay they say this need not be done in one year or 10 but could be gradually effected over a period ol years as revenue secured indicated. Serious Offence Following a preliminary hearing in city court, Eric O'Neill, 21. of 112 Pamilla street, was committed to stand trial in a higher court on a charge of committing a serious offence against a woman. I Pianos I Wanted I Sell your old Piano for cash. Full Value IR obertson. ingle tue; Following his accident on Metcalfe street when he fell and injured his hip, he was confined to the hospital. Before that he had been in failing health and had lived in partial retirement. Mr. Cummings was single and leaves only his sister, Mrs. E. E. Charleson, Eastview. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon from the George H. Rogers funeral parlors. Rev. W. W. McNairn will, conduct the service at 2.30 o'clock, and burial will be in Bccchwood cemetery. On Trial For Theft Of Four Aulo Tires Raymond Guay, 28, of Hammond, went on trial before Mr. Justice Duranleau and a jury at the Hull Assizes this morning on a charge of stealing four automobile wheels and tires from the car of A. Gale, manager of the Hull Electric Company. The theft was committed in October, 1944. Witnesses for the prosecution included the accused's brother, Albert, who is serving a three-year penitentiary term on the same charge. A third Guay brother, Rene, charged with the same offence, was acquitted by a jury yesterday. Pleads Guilty Fleming Shields, 17, of 116 Slater street, pleaded guilty in city court to three minor theft charges and was remanded till Saturday for sentence. The charges were laid by Constable R. A. Grant. iS.i A I Selective (From Page One) It was explained that the former selective service offices, and such personnel as were retained, would be used as an agency of the Unemployment Insurance Commission. "They will be empowered to pay benefits in cash to those entitled to them." Asked if there would be such a cashier at the Sparks street unemployment office, Mr. MacNamara said there always had been a cashier there, and he in future would be empowered to pay unemployment benefits wnen people were entitled to them. Mr. MacNamara also indicated that the new organization would offer every assistance in getting jobs for men. Job Scouts Another new feature understood to have been already invoked Is the sending out of employment service officials to approach employers. These "Job scouts" will concern themselves mainly with digging up Jobs for veterans, and their activities will be nation-wide. This will employ a three-way liaison with labor, veterans and employers between three points of this triangular relationship. It Is believed that the arrangement will be widely endorsed. Information is that the last important control of manpower the necessity for obtaining a work permit from the government is to go by the boards shortly. All remaining Mr. Mac Namara stated, are presently under consideration by the Department of Labor and Canadian workers will soon know the exact position in which they are to stand In relation to government control during the post-war period. Mr. MacNamara stated that it is probable that employers will be required for some time to continue to register vacancies. Employes will still be required to give seven days' notice. Labor exit permits will still be required for some time. Lift All Controls. It was learned that all controls on advertising of and for jobs are to be lifted shortly. Job-seekers were recently permitted to advertise for positions without channelling their requests through employment offices. Power to direct men into agri culture is to be eliminated as soon as the 1945 crop is harvested. Tentative date is November 15. Under the National Employment Service set-up employers will be required to list vacancies. Those seeking work must register. In respect to registration of workers and the payment of unemployment insurance, Mr. MacNamara stated that the Employment Service does not intend to force job-seekers into jobs outside their particular line of work without giving them every opportunity to find suitable employment. If a man is laid off a 60 cents an hour Job he will not be forced to accept a 40 cents an hour job immediately. He may draw his insurance and await an opportunity in his own line. Won't Sit Back. The fact that the maximum unemployment insurance (for a married man with a family) amounts to only $14.40 per week will mean that comparatively few will desire to sit back and draw Insurance if they can obtain work that will pay them more than this. The Unemployment Insurance Act specifies that the employment offices must offer "suitable employment" to those under the act. Considerable latitude is permitted under this term, but the government intends to keep to the spirit of the act rather than use the term "suitable employment" as a pretext to place job-seekers in jobs they do not wish to take. Dismiss Traffic Charge A charge of reckless driving laid against Murray E. Davis, 177 Waller street, following an automobile collision on the Champlain bridge, was dismissed by Judge Achim in Hull court this morning. The driver claimed that he was blinded by the headlights of an oncoming motor car which caused him to crash into a parked automobile. The cost to your estate is not a practical issue when you are considering the appointment of the Toronto General Trusts as your executor and trustee. All executors and trustees are entitled to be paid, and there is an established legal procedure, applicable equally to all of them, for assessing the amount of their compensation. The real point is that you obtain skill, long experience and depend-ability for the usual compensation by choosing the Toronto General Trusts the advantages, in fact, of an alert and competent organization, specially equipped to administer your estate under the complex conditions existing today. We invite your inquiries. -TORONTO GENERAL TRUSTS OTTAWA BOY RECEIVES WELCOME HOME MESSAGE FROM KING Cpl. Clarence E. Burgess, RCOC, who left Ottawa on Oct. 23, 1941, and who was captured by the Japanese on Dec. 25, 1941, is shown here holding the message of welcome home which will be sent to all repatriated Hong Kong prisoners from His Majesty the King. The text of the message reads: "The Queen and I bid you a very warm welcome home. Through all the great trials and sufferings which you have endured at the hands of the Japanese, you and your comrades have been consistently in our thoughts. We realize from the accounts which we have already received, how heavy those sufferings have been. We know, too, that these have been endured by you with the highest courage. We mourn with you the deaths of so many of your gallant comrades. We hope with all our hearts that your return from captivity will bring to you and your families a full measure of happiness."
