Trade Boom Is Analyzed- By The Canadian Press MONTREAL There are indications that Canada's present level of prosperity "may be to a degree specious." shareholders were told today at the 21st general annual meeting of Barclays Bank (Canada) by President H. A. Stevenson. "Whilst the last year has been one of great business activity, we should recognize the fact that postwar inflation has been rife here (Canada), as it has- the world, over, and has unquestionably tinged the picture of our accomplishments," said Mr! Stevenson. 5 i 4 1 'vaaf -J I i i i mi i i- i ii ii nr ni i i imiiifff f-ri'ilii'itB iummi nwmi Kent Pupils Serve Tea To Visitors Parents day was a social event at Kent street school yesterday afternoon.

Ontario schools, elementary and secondary, will have a holiday on Friday, Nov. 26, it was announced today in Toronto by education minister Dana Porter. The holiday is to mark the birth of the 1 '1 "ft Tjv "The sharp upward trend In prices, wages and cost of living, the bulging national exchequer receipts, the expansion In total bank deposits and In the total amount of money in circulation at increasing velocity are amongst the more important indications that, monetary values have be come somewhat unhealthily ex panded and that consequently our present level of prosperity may to a degree specious. Inflatlon, Mr. Stevenson went on, cast a rosy haze "of apparent prosperity but obscures real values "postwar Inflationary booms have a record of collapsing with severe force." The prominent position Canada holds as an international trader rendered the country particularly susceptible to economic trends in other countries. Thus, prudence demanded that -this should be remembered, that influence from beyond the country's borders, beyond the country's con trol, could start a recessionary 1 The president said rehabilitation in European countries has advanced and would rebound to Canada's benefit in the long run. But as rehabilitation progresses so will Europe's self-sufficiency "and it. is not inconceivable that we shall even begin to feel the rising trend of European export power in the world's markets in the not distant future. one-time buyers have become potential competitors," said Mr. Stevenson. "From these co-sideratlons it seems logical to conclude that there will probably be a somewhat sustained recession in our general export with European countries and with others until such time as their recovery has become complete." Ports From Page One Canadian affiliates of the striking International Longshoremen's Association (A.P.L) said the same decision would affect the ports of Montreal and Saint John, NB. Joseph Ryan, president of the union, said here that workers in south 'Atlantic and Gulf ports would take similar action if shipowners sought to ease the full impact of the walkout by rerouting passenger or cargo ships in that direction. There was no indication of settlement of the strike of 65,000 members of the I.L.A. as the shipping' tie-up went into its seventh day. The Canadian labor department said in Ottawa that it will invest! gate the refusal of longshoremen to "work" any more diverted ships. A department official said it is possible that the contracts of the Canadian longshoremen contain "escape clauses" permitting them to refuse to handle "hot" cargo. The longshoremen are covered by Canada's new federal labor code which prescribes procedures which must be followed before a strike can be waged. The port of Halifax had handled several ships diverted from New York since the strike began. Special trains carried passengers to and from New York. But yesterday's union decision choked off the port, which fast was becoming the most important on the Atlantic coast. was no Indication today of any break in the -deadlock between the IL.A. and the stevedore employers over wages. The union is demanding an increase of 50 cents an hour and welfare benefits. The employers have agreed to 10-and 15-cent rises, which would boost the day-shift straight-time pay from $1.75 to $1.85 an hour and the night and week-end overtime pay from $2.624 to $2.77 y2 an hour. Irony For Halifax By The Canadian Press HALIFAX The United States ports strike at first was a pre mature Christmas present for the port of Halifax but today the scrooge of labor trouble had crossed the border and slowed down activity A spokesman for 2,000 Halifax stevedores said yesterday that they will not work ships diverted here from strike-bound American ports, but will help to ready for sailing Father Clieli Dies Suddenly In Montreal Very" Rev. Father Stefano Cheli, OSM, vicftr-provincial of the Seryite Fathers in Canada and pastor of St. Anthony's church here from 1930 to 1946, died suddenly yesterday in Montreal. He was 62. The body will arrive In Ottawa Thursday evening and will lie in state in St. Anthony's church until Friday morning when a pontifical high mass will be chanted at nine o'clock. Interment will be in Notre Dame cemetery, Ottawa. Born near Florence, Italy, Father Cheli received his early education in Florence and was ordained to the priesthood in 1909 in Rome. He arrived in Montreal in 1912, later taking up teaching in Chicago where he remained from 1918 until 1922. From the United States, he returned to his homeland and pursued his studies at the College of the Propagation of The Faith, Rome, where, he graduated with the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy and. Doctor of Theology. Returning to Canada, he taught at St. Anthony's College here. He became vicar-provincial of the Servite Fathers in Canada in 1930 and also pastor of St. Anthony's church. Leaving Ottawa in 1946, Father Cheli assumed the office of superior of Notre Dame de la Defense church In Montreal. Before the outbreak of World War he received a decoration from the Italian government and made a Knight of the Italian Crown, in 1939. Besides his 91 -year-old mother, residing in Italy, Father Cheli is survived by a brother in Sienna, Italy and a sister living in France. Wakefield Goes "Wet" Special To The Cltlzea WAKEFIELD The "wets" had their way yesterday in a referendum held in the township of Wakefield, which brought about the repeal of a 50-year-old bylaw which prohibited the sale of beer. The actual vote was: 72 were in favor of the repeal; 65 were against its repeal. Drew From Page One Mr. Drew's reply to Mr. Howe's London speech was that it cannot be passed over as "just another example of his complete and well known disregard for the truth." He denied any Immediate responsibility in the power shortage which has Ontario firmly in its grasp and said that it was strictly a matter of insufficient moisture. Mr. Howe was in Washington today." The remarks of Mr. Howe In London were received with some surprise in Ottawa since Prime Minister St. Laurent had already indicated that the Liberals if he had his way would not take any part in the Carleton by-election campaign. The remarks the trade minister made in London were seen as a direct counter to this point of view. Whether or. not the prime minister had any knowledge of the speech also was cloaked in obscurity but, at his press conference last night, he said he know nothing about the speech. Nation-Wide Attention The Carleton contest is attracting nation-wide attention, owing to the nature of the Issues involved and because Mr. Drew, the Conservative contestant, is the national leader of the party. Another issue that may come into prominence in the Carleton field before many more days is the remark in Montreal over the weekend by Ivan Sabourin, Quebec Conservative leader, that Canada probably could remain neutral in the event of another war. and even if the VS. were to be attacked. Carleton county holds many old-stock Canadians who would view such sentiments with some suspicion and Mr. Sabourln's remarks were regarded here in Conservative circles as ill-timed and ill-chosen, although nothing official has been said about them. Observers today were drawing a parallel between the Carleton contest and the York South by-election of 1942 when disaster overtook the Rt. Hon. Arthur Meighen, then national leader of the Conservatives. Say AFL May Pull-Affiliates From TLC By The Associated Press CINCINNATI The executive council of the American Federa tion of Labor met last night with 12 Canadian labor leaders but took no action on reports in American circles that Canadian trade unions and labor councils have fallen Into Communist Control "to an alarming extent." The 12 Canadian delegates, headed by Frank Hall of the Canadian Railway Clerks, repiesent 28 AFL unions in Canada. i Members of the executive council were expected to meet with the Canadians again today at the AFL's 67th annual convention. Anti-Red Drive By The Canadian Press NEW YORK An offensive Is to be launched by the American Federation of Labor to clean Communists out of the Trades and Labor Congress of Canada, the New York Times said In a frontpage dispatch from Cincinnati, in its Sunday edition. The Tinies declares' the 15-man executive council of the AFL, dissatisfied, with TLC's handling of Communists in its ranks, plans to threaten to pull its Canadian affiliates out of the Canadian congress. This would be done, the newspaper said, by asking AFL International unions to withdraw the charters from Canadian locals that continue membership in the TLC. AFL sources were quoted as saying international unions have a membership of probably 200,000, which would be just about half the tbtal membership of the TLC. The battle over Reds came to a climax two months ago when Frank H. Hall of Montreal, Canadian, Head of the AFL-afflliated Brotherhood of Railway and Steamship Clerks, affected a union merger aimed at the Canadian Seamen's Union (TLC). Trades and Labor Congress President Percy Bengough said today talk of a threatened withdrawal from the congress by Canadian affiliates of AFL International unions was "pretty wild," based' on "misinformation" gained from "talking it over with irresponsible individuals who haven't the of the membership." "Our membership would have to decide whether it wants to take orders from Washington," Mr. Bengough declared. Charging the Cincinnati report was the work of several "disgruntled" TLC members including Frank Hall, Mr. Bengough indicated the whple matter could be settled once AFL officials' decided "to sit down and talk them over with the duly elected officers of the congress." Eire Prom Page One Britain was represented by Lord Chancellor Jowitt: Canada by Hon. L. B. minister for external affairs; New Zealand by Premier Peter Fraser; and Australia' by Evatt and J. A. Beasley, high commissioner, in London. Expected Tomorrow The subject under discussion is the exact status of Eireann citizens resident in the British Commonwealth after Eire has severed her last link with the British Crown by the repeal of the External Relations Act, expected tomorrow. South Africa and other Commonwealth countries are not taking part as they have no Eireann minorities. 1 MacBride said yesterday that Eire's secession was almost an accomplished fact. It was learned here that the meeting would go through the findings of the law officers of the crown on the consequences of Eire leaving the commonwealth. What these detailed findings were was not made known, but it was made clear that they covered: 1. People born in Eire and now working in Britain and enjoying British status would become aliens with all the consequences Involved; 2. Eire would automatically lose Gloucester Adopts Bylaw On Policing Gloucester' township council, at Its meeting Monday, passed a bylaw authorizing the policing of a designated area of the township by the Ontario Provincial Police. The agreement will be forwarded to District Inspector Sidney Hunter at Cornwall and will be turned over to the Attorney General's department for approval by order-in-council. Policing of the area is to commence on December 1 and after one month it may be discontinued at the request of council. Cost of the policing by three officers of the Ontario force will have to be borne by the ratepayers. The upkeep for? a 12-month period will be $5,250, in addition to six cents per mile for the car. Deputy returning officers will be appointed under another by' I passed and polling places will be fixed for the forthcoming municipal elections on Dec. 6. Unanimous approval was given a thifd bylaw authorizing the construction of a water main to serve properties along the east side of Malakoff avenue. W. E. Doughty, township building inspector, is to decide on what action is to be taken regarding a request from Haldane Cram, secretary of the Federal District Commission, who asked for a statement of recommendation on the condition of an expropriated building. The building was formerly owned by Cowan of Ottawa Limited and is situated on the River road. Work on the North Gower drain has been completed. William Borthwick, road superintendent, reported to council. Ma rsarine UCClSlOlv Delayed By The Canadian Press The Supreme Court margarine decision has been delayed again. Expected this week, the judgment cn the validity of parliament's ban on- the butter substitute has been deferred by a continuing heavy roll of court cases. Court sources say the judgment now may be brought down next week but even this new date is tentative. The Supreme Court heard argument on the constitutionality of the prohibition early in October. The legislation prohibits the importation, manufacture and sale of margarine in Canada. It was adopted 62 years ago. From Page One Probe tribunal, said Price was being examined on various alteged transactions to test his recollection and credibility." Price said he was told in the office of Alfred Bieberr a London solicitor, that he could get a licence for importing amusement park equipment if he paid 10,000 to Stanley who would act as "go-between" with government departments, i Bieber said he first met Stanley when he issued a bankruptcy notice on -him. Stanley, who struck him as "very glib, very talkative and very boastful," said he was importing steel to Britain and had an unused allocation for this purpose. One of Bieber's clients, Jacob Harris, an amusement caterer, complained to him one day that his amusement park equipment was obsolete and could only be replaced from the United States. Bieber suggested it could be manufactured in Britain if prototypes were obtained from the United States. The question of an import licence came up and Bieber re membered Stanley had an unused Import allocation of 186.000. He said he approached Stanley who agreed to surrender most of the allocation to Harris but demanded 10,000 to compensate him for what he would lose by his gesture. Attorney-General Sir Hartley Shawcross told the tribunal yesterday that the investigators have not yet found enough evidence to prosecute. royal prince to Princess Elizabeth. Pupils and teachers alike will it means a bit of respite between the Nov. 11 DreaK and cnnstm? examinations. Separate schools, however, also observe Dec. 8, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, as a holiday. Football Fridays will be over by Nov. 26, but in some of the collegiates and high schools examination dates will have to be changed slightly. At Lisgar Collegiate, examinations were scheduled to begin on the day in question. Now Principal J. J. Dunlop thinks that he will set the first exam for Nov. 25. Dates Unchanged The Technical High School examinations will not have to be changed. The first exam, is to be written on Nov. 24 but none is scheduled for Nov. 26. The last exam at Tech will be on Dec. 3. Harry Pullen, principal of the High School of Commerce said Hunter Downs Three Bears An Ottawa hunter, Gilford Johnson, 87 Cameron avenue, on Saturday bagged three black bears while on a hunting trip in the Calabogie area. The skins, one from a 300-pound female and two from 150 pound year-old cubs, will grace the Danford Lake cottage of the RCAF veteran next next surnmer. It was a tense moment for Mr. Johnson when four bears charged towards him while he waited for a deer. Holding his fire until the bears were within 20 feet, Mr. Johnson took aim and only injured the female bear. The animal advanced and reared up on' its hind legs! A second shot from Mr. Johnson's rifle ended its life. Taking aim at one of the cubs, the hunter felled it with one shot while the other two cubs took to the bush. Johnson also took off in pursuit and was fortunate enough to shoot and kilt-one of them. The other escaped into the woods. Also in the deer hunting party were Harold Taggart, Frank Richardson, Revell Johnson. Paul Duhamel, Kye Taggart and Ken Thomas. Lester McGonigal was guiding the party. Gets Deer And Bear Tony Biernackl, 18-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Biernackl, Metcalfe road, established his family's hunting prowess when he arrived home today with one buck and a bear to his credit. He and his father were hunting at McCauley Lake. In the Mada-waska ara, when he brought down the deer with one shot, the bear with three. His father returned empty-handed. Howe From Page One ested in obtaining a number of specific items of United States equipment," he said. His statement was interpreted as partial confirmation of recent Ottawa reports that he would explore the possibilities of obtaining large scale United States orders for Canadian military equipment. (He said in Ottawa last Thursday, however, that these repoits were "wholly without foundation." not signing anything while I'm there (Washington) and I am not going to do any investigating." He told Ottawa reporters.) Howe, accompanied by M. W. Mackenzie, deputy trade minister, alro will confer with Arthur Hill, chairman of the United natural resources board, and officials of the United States munitions board. He said he will attend a ceremony Thursday afternoon as Canadian representative at the signing of an agreement between Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom on standardization cf screw threads. Howe and Mackenzie will return to Ottawa Thursday night. From another source, It was learned that Canada is keenly Interested in getting United States orders for production of aircraft parts. United States orders for, say, airframes, would greatly increase production in Canadian aircraft plants. Such expansion would cut over-all costs and could lead to a boost in production of aircraft for the RCAF. receive this news with joy for that the holidv would not affect their examinations. At Glebe Collegiate the first exam is set for Monday, Nov. 29, so the long weekend will probably be a period of intensive "cramming" for many students. Nepean High School examinations, scheduled to begin Nov. 25, will be moved up one day, to begin Nov. 24. At St. Patrick's College and the University of Ottawa Christmas examinations do not begin until the first week in December, and at Immaculata High School they began two weeks ago and will probably be all over by Nov. 26. In which case students of Immaculata will doubtless- enjoy the holiday more than anyone The however, may spend the time marking examination papers. Congratulations Sent By Pontiff By The Associated Press VATICAN CITY Pope Pius today cabled the royal family his congratulations on the birth of Princess Elizabeth's son. Spuriied Lover Is Jailed Oh Arson Charge A broken romance was this morning responsible for 65-year-old Elias Michaud, of 42 Daly avenue, appearing before Deputy Magistrate Sauve In city police court this morning on a charge of arson, entering a plea of guilty and being sentenced to two months in county jail to date from November 1. He was represented by Royden Hughes. The accused, according to the testimony of Detective Sgt. Robert Bayne, had been keeping company with a woman who had spumed his advances and married someone else. In an attempt to frighten her, Michaud went to her home at 160 Bolton street on November 1, and set fire to a pile of rubbish in the basement and to the curtains of the kitchen windows. He then went home to bed where he was later arrested. Character Evidence Character evidence submitted by witnesses for the accused, showed that he was a hard-working man who had saved a little money and had become enamoured of a lady in the latter years of his life. When she married another his work fell off and he became despondent. "In view of your exceptionally good character and you truly Christian way of life, I do not intend to be severe with you," Mr. Sauve told the accused. "I take into consideration also that, what has happened to you. would certainly be a severe shock, but nonetheless I must impose some punishment. Your sentence will be two months in county jail from the date of your arrest." Assistant Crown Attorney S. Rupert Broadfoot, KC. who conducted the prosecution, insisted upon a reasonable punishment for the offence despite his leaning towards leniency. "The lives of several people residing in the house were threatened by this man's action, and although I am greatly impressed by the character evidence I must insist upon some reasonable punishment in of that fact," the Crown prosecutor said. $79,204 Left By F. A. Slack Frederick Albert Slack, who died In Ottawa on Sept. 10, left an estate valued at $73,204. according to the will which has been filed for probate in Surrosata court.

The will lists the following: clothing and jewellery, $100; household goods, $500; book debts, life insurance, bank stock. securities, cash, $570: automobile, $600; real estate, other assets, $1,098. Says Teachers Are Quitting Over Low Pay Low pay is causing many teachers to leave the profession, Ovide Proulx, president of the Ontario Teachers' Federation, said when addressing members of the French-Canadian Institute. He blamed low salaries, insufficient qualifications, and defective conditions of work for the low prestige under which, he said, teachers labor at present. Speaking on education week across Canada. Mr. Proulx called for better training for teachers, stating that only 15 per cent of 57.000 teachers quizzed in a recent survey held university degrees. Controller From'Ps One That would appear to be an invasion of provincial rights and would be resented by the province. Under wartime emergency powers It could be done properly, but hardly in peace time. "I do think the Ontario government should make a survey of its undeveloped water-power resources and take prompt steps to utilize these at the earliest possible opportunity. Meanwhile the people shouid accept the conditions as gracefully as they can and work with the hydro to meet the power shortage. We are faced with ltj and we cannot avoid It. Under emergency conditions we have to make the best of the situation." Emergency Measure "If there is an emergency then we should expect the adoption of emergency measures, G. W. Goodwin said. "Ontario is the largest province of the Dominion. In it are great industrial cities, and a vast proportion of the Canadian population. If the Ontario Hydro Commission is unable to solve the problem with which it Is confronted, then I see no reason why the senior government, and after all, it Is the government of Canada of which Ontario is a part, should not be appealed to. "I have in mind the fact that, in wartime emergencies, th Dominion government was able to mobilize industry as well as the people to meet the threat of war. It seems to me that the power blackouts as they now are, are a definite threat to Ontario industry from which so many derive their existence. "It should be remembered that the navy, army and air force had at command great mobile electrical generating plants used to tght airfields, to Illuminate invasion beaches, to keep army camps supplied with light and current for power apparatus. Still Available "Much, of that equipment must still be available throughout the country, a great deal of it must be located at storage depots in Ontario, Ccn. Goodwin said, "and I see no reason why, if the government was appealed to from the standpoint cf national emergency, that it could not be made avail-ble to the various municipalities for emergency lighting and power requirements. "In that capacity a national controller cf hydro would be of value. And failing that I still think a gocd public relations man, retained by tha hydro, could enlist the whole-hearted co-operation of the citizens In securing power cuts to meet the needs of the moment."

Princess From Page One the new Prince "knows no bounds." Another close relative who called was the Duchess of Kent, She said she was greatly thrilled. Margaret's Reaction Princess Margaret, on an official mission in Sheffield, was reported eager to get back to see her nephew and. personally congratulate her sister and brother-in-law, Philip. Appearing on the stage at Shef field's Pageant of Production last Margaret said: "I shall never forget the good news ft my sister's baby. I shall never forget the way you have shared my happiness today." Britons, meantime, reluctantly wound up the big day's celebration of firing guns, blowing whistles, ringing bells, flying flags, parading and drinking toasts. In London merry-makers capered well into the' cold, rainy night. Crowds pressed 10-deep against the huge railings of ths palace yelling "We want Philip." When Philip did not appear, they contented themselves with' chanting lullabies. 'As the night wore on harried police told the crowds they might as well go home because nothing was going to happen. Most of the gathering dug in more firmly than ever. In Oxford, police and University authorities joined to restrain a raucous student celebiation. After street skirmishes in which at least one policeman was clouted over the head with a bottle, undergraduates linked arms and marched town. singing through the four big liners already in port. The announcement had a touch of Irony to harbor boosters, in the midst of opening a "port of Halifax a promotional scheme to advertise and bring more business here. Industry Minister Harold Connolly of Nova Scotia appealed to the longshoremen to "weigh carefully" their decision in a public address and a radio broadcast last night. J. J. Campbell, president of the Halifax Longshoremen's Association (AF.L.), who made the "no work" announcement, said the union would not "scab" Americau labor but would take care not to break the Canadian federal labor code. her preferential position inside the Commonwealth with regards to trade. ft
