The Ottawa Citizen Tint Sectioa OTTAWA, CANADA, MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 193 Paf 7 N SyF,(iK AREA Ruse Nabs Toronto Call Girls TORONTO (CP) A squad of morality officers, led by a creaming policewoman, last night charged into ao exclusive Guild wood Village borne to break up what they called "the biggest call-girl operation uncovered in Toronto in year." Police arrested a man and a teen-aged girl and seized books covering the operations of 15 girts. , Arthur Donald De Carle, 30, and Margaret Fern Duke, 19, were charged with living off the avail of prostitution and procuring. Sgt. Richard Bennett, who commanded the raiders, said his men tried for a month to meke dates with call girls but were rebuffed. Last night they tried another ruse to get inside the new, swank home in the suburban Scarborough area. Policewoman Phyllis Ballinger knocked on the door and screamed "Help, Police." - The door was thrown open and detectives rushed in. Inside was a man with a gun. Policewoman Ballinger knocked It out of his hand. It was found to be i starting pistol loaded with tear gas pellets. 18-Month Record Police said three books Inside the house showed accounts of the racket during the last 18 months. They contained names, addresses and telephone numbers of 15 girls, their earnings, names of customers and hotels and houses visited. The books showed a net income $100,000 for the last year. Half of this went to the girls and the other half to the organizers. Two of the girls listed in the books were picked up as material witnesses. , "It is the biggest call-girl operation uncovered in Toronto in years," Sgt. Bennett said. The books showed the girls had a price list ranging from $200 to $20 a call. The sergeant said police were tipped off about a month ago by the sister of a 17-year-old call girt. "The woman said she answered the telephone one night and was told to go to a downtown hotel, he sail "She said she became suspic ious and questioned . her young sister who broke down and admitted she was a call girl. "The woman gave us the address and phone number of. the house.'' "We tried again and again to make dates, but we couldn't give them the right answers and they played coy." Third Man Charged In Holdup Douglas Parsons, 24, formerly of 232 Slater Street, appeared in county magistrate's court today charged with armed robbery as the result of last Tuesday's $15,-000 holdup of a City , View supermarket manager. The accused asked for an adjournment of the hearing in crder that he might obtain counsel. He was remanded without election or plea until Wednesday. ' ' Magistrate Austin O'Connor set bail at $10,000 cash or $20,000 In property. , Two other men arrested in connection with the theft, Robert Stewart, 29, and Lawrence Maloley, 29, also have been charged with armed robbery and will appear along with Parsons on Wednesday. With Parsons' arrest in a Toronto bar last Thursday night, police seized $2,162 in cash which was found on his person. Another $9,000 in cash that was stolen still is missing but The Citizen learned today that authorities now have a "fair idea" as to its location. The remaining portion of the loot was in the form of cheques. These were believed to have been destroyed. The gun used in the holdup, a .45 automatic with three cartridges in the clip, was rccov- ered. Parsons apparently tossed i it out of a taxi window along j Riverside Drive. A passerby found tt and turned it in to the J police. ; I .JiVj.WVr,r..2jW(.,: SUIT END SPECIAL! A Clearance of Bolt Ends of our finest lullinrs. Now at one low clearing price.

This is another way of saying that I have just returned from a visit to a Moral Re-Armament Conference on Mackinac Island. I saw "The Four Absolutes' at work, changing ninds, hearts and souls. ' I saw otherwise worldly women who had given up lipstick and rouge. I talked to men who have abandoned worldly pretensions. People's smiles were sweet without being saccharine; men's greetings were sincere, but not sugary. Now, before I say anything more about what some people insist is a modern version of Milton's "Paradise Regained," let's get there in the first place. I went out to Cecil Morrison's place at 95 Echo Drive, and there enjoyed what I jokingly dubbed my indoctrination luncheon. There was surprisingly little so-called shop talk over our cold plates. Next thing I knew, Cecil, my wife and I were on a plane, Mackinac-, bound. TCA flew high, that humid day, but even at 16,000 feet I could unscramble the ragged outlines of Rice Lake from the heat haze. Then down at Toronto. OFFICIALS PROBING Aircraft Didn't Stop For Report Tl;e air services division of the Department of Transport is Investigating a report that a Departmental DC-3 landed and took off from Peterborough air- port last night without checking in. i . 65-00 7 ELEPHANTS HELP SET Tamer Here With Circus 'CROSS TOWN ilh W. Austin Cross . My main impression of Toronto during my two-hour stop between planes was a persistent boysenberry seed that stayed in my teeth the whole way to Mackinac Island. Again, for all the time and money spent at Malton airport, it is still laid out as if diabolically designed to interfere with passenger comfort; it also is deadly for people who can't walk. It almost seems as if it would be simpler to keep on walking to your destination rather than shuttle from waiting room, to check-in counter, to exit lounge. You would think this airport was designed by a railroad president, to get even with the airways. Then up again and there was Collingwood and its white elevator glowing golden in the afternoon sun. There was Wasaga Beach. And now we were over the poverty-stricken, but pretty, Bruce Peninsula. Manitoulin, largest fresh water island in the world, loomed and then left us and there was the smoke of the steel mills at Sault Ste. Marie. We came down at Kinross, Michigan, Airport for both Soo's, and roared through the fresh forests 40 m 1 1 e s to St. Ignace. Then via boat, and horse we reached Mackiifac and Moral Re-Armament. To Tower Hardy Oakman, operator of the airport, said the plane set down, waited a few minutes and then took off. He claimed the crew broke a departmetnal regulation. "It should have registered before taking off, no matter how short the stay," said Mr. Oak-man. The DC-3, believed out of Toronto, was apparently on a trial flight to test a new airstrip at the airport on which Transport Minister Hees will land on Wednesday. To Open Fair The minister will open a four-day exhibition that day in Peterborough. Departmental officials here said it was In order for a plane to touch down and take off again. I'. was done all the time by Ottawa Flying Club and other planes at the Department's Uplands terminal. AH that was needed was the proper signal from the tower. "If the operator of the Peter-borough field U concerned about landing fees," he should write the department, said one official. Mr. Oakman quoted a paragraph from the Department'i regulations: "As soon as pos-siblt after larding at any air- VP BIG TOP IN RAIN By Norman Avery Citizen Staff Writer ' - Trumpeting elephants, roaring lions and a grunting hippopota mus have transformed a quiet field at Base Line Road and Wood-, roffe Avenue into a man-made jungle The Clyde Beatty Cole Brothers Circus, the world's largest under canvas, is here today and tomorrow under auspices of the Montgomery Branch of the Canadian Legion. The show runs three rings with Clyde Beatty's famed wild animal performance and the high wire antics of Pinito del Oro, recently named Europe's greatest circus performer, the Hollywood aerial ballet and Huberto's "slide for life". Will Drop CPR Train The Board of Transport Com missioners today gave permission to the Canadian Pacific Railway to abandon passenger service on the Ottawa-Waltham line. ' ' Signed by Rod Kerr, Chief Commissioner, the decision terminates service for passenger trains after almost 70 years. It is understood that the Canadian Pacific will terminate passenger service on "The Pontiac" as soon as they can give 30 days' notice to the public. It may come before the fall time changes go into effect. Express will be handled three times a week by way freight, and two other days by truck. Fran Claudet Is Married In 'Frisco SAN FRANCISCO (Special) - Frances Mary Claudet, former well known Ottawa figure skater, was married here recently to Worthington Johnson of New York city and Fairfield, Conn. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. H. H. Claudet and the late Mr. Claudet and the groom Is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William T. Johnson of Pittsburgh, Pa. Norman Gilchrist of Toronto gave his sister-in-law in marriage. Best man was R. F. More- land of Pittsburgh, brother-in-law of the groom. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson left for a honeymoon in Carmel, Calif. They will live in Fairfield, Conn. Brush Fire Threatens' Homes, Radio A brush fire which burned furiously in the north end of Desohencs yesterday afternoon for a short time threatened 10 homes and the transmitter tower of French-Iimguage radio station CKCH. i Fifteen volunteers under Des-chencs fire chief Leonard Fortin brought the blaze under control In less than two hours. Officials said the threat was minor as there was no wind fanning the blaze. About 10 families whose homes were near the fire were on standby to evacuate but remained in their houses after the blaze was controlled. port the pilot shall report or cause lo be reported to the operator of the sir,iort or his represenUtivts." i Photo by Newton Fired From Cannon Hugo Zacchlni Is fired from a cannon and the Webbers do a rock and roll act on the high wire. There are 25 acts in all. Eddie Dullum, chief clown, school teacher and publicity man, shrugged off the rainy weather this morning in traditional circus spirit. "That's the breaks," he says. He pointed out that the modern circus is not bothered by rain with the new tents. The big top, 12 acres of canvas, is fireproof and can withstand 90 mile-an-hour winds. Among the animals are 12 tigers, 16 lions and seven elephants. The elephants have just had their quarterly haircut done by blowtorch. Private Show Last night, Clyde Beatty had a private show. The tigers pick ed a fight with the lions, and the famous tamer of wild beasts had to apply his skills without ap plause. ' Circus officials say business is better than ever. It is up 30 over last year which was an all-time record breaker. They say that the carnival has harmed the legitimate circus. But it is a big business, not a clip joint that is under the huge tent, they add. They Spend Too To Ottawa merchants the cir cus means $2,000 daily. This' is spent on gasoline, food, labor, and about ten tons of sawdust. The Montgomery Branch of the Legion is sponsoring the circus to raise funds for welfare work. They are treating several hundred less-privileged children to the show during its stay. Performances are at 2.15 and 8 p.m. today and tomorrow. Bristol Theater The oldest playhouse in England still in regular use is the Theater Royal, Bristol, opened in 1766. May Erase Catholics' Meat Ban This Friday The Archbishop's Palace is awaiting confirmation that Pope John has granted dispensation to Roman Catholics from the obligation not to eat meat next Friday, August 14. In a dispatch from Vatican City today Associated Press said the precedent-making dispensation was given because Friday will be th eve of the feast of the Assumption. Until last year, the eve of the teiuA of the Assumption was observed as a day of fast and abstinence. On whatever day it fell, except Sunday, Catholics not only abstained from meat but adults under 60 were allowed Just one full-sized mpal. Eating between meals was prohibited. Last year Por Pius XII transferred this observance to December 7, the vigil of tht feast of the ImmaculaU Conception. Canada-US. Officials To Discuss Nuclear Arms For Canadians By Greg Csonofley Citiien Parliamentary Writer The possible shifting of Amer- ican Bomarc and Nike-Hercules bases to northern Canada is not expected to be a major topic during U.S.-Canada defence talks here tomorrow. Officials said Defence Minister Pearkes and Secretary of Defence Neil McElroy may refer to the matter in their general discussions. The view taken here is that moving such missile bases is not feasible, not only because of the expense Involved but because such bases have to be tied in with a ground control system. The Pearkes-MeElroy talks will be Informal and will range over a wide variety of defence problems. They will discuss U.S. plans for continental defence and Canada's views thereon, and the status cf NATO forces. . The most important aspect of the meeting will probably be the arming of Canadian forces with weapons of nuclear capacity and the stationing of nuclear weapons in Canada. SECURITY DEPENDS ON TIMING An Ottawa photographer who . went to Carp on an assignment for a Toronto newspaper Friday received an official warning against taking pictures of the' National Defence Department's building project there. Ernie McNulty of 20 Elvina Street, Cardinal Heights, employed by Newton Photographic Associates Ltd., was warned by a soldier standing on the third concession line road (Rock Road) against taking a shot of the site. As McNulty's shutter clicked the soldier was joined by a sergeant who took McNulty's name and told him there was "quit a fine" for photographing the "sign. ' The sergeant took McNulty to his captain who referred him to Lt.-Col. W. A. Milroy, director of army public relations in Ottawa, on the subject of photographs. "They were all very nice about it," commented McNulty. Photographer Don Ashley, also rf Newton's, went to Carp on Saturday and shot a whole roll of film from the public road without any questions owing asked. ECUMENICAL COUNCIL Pope Outlines Main Aim VATICAN CITY (AP)-Pope John has said that the main aim of the forthcoming Ecumenical Council will be the strengthening and invigorating of the Roman Catholic Church. The Pope made this statement during a speech he delivered more than one week ago to a rrouo of Italian Catholic Action leaders. The speech was published in today's issue of the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano. "The entire world is waiting for the ecumenical council," the Pope said. "Today, meetings of politi cians, diplomats, scientists, in dustrialists and men belonging to the various categories of trade and professionalism are frequent. Some of them do not bear on the forehead the name and sign of Christ. Sometimes they let themselves be dominated by a force and overbearing-ness of the 'prince of this world' which is anti-Christ. "Why could not there gather those who are in accord for the exaltation of the most memorable fact of human history the victory of civilization in the light of Christ? Christians by name are scattered around the world, and they are many, but some are separated from the Catholic Church. "The main aim of the Ecu menical Council will be that of strengthening and Invigorating the Roman Catholic Church Then, when the Catholic Church Marc H. Cote of the Canadian Catholic Conference pointed out the dispensation for next Friday is a new precedent. Dispensations have often been granted for an actual feast day, but previously never for the eve of a feast.

A report from Washington quoted Congressman Robert Sykes as saying the shifting of bases might be discussed by Mr. McElroy and Defence Minister Pearkes. Mr. Sykes said Canadian border cities were apprehensive about radioactive fallout, result ing from use of nuclear-tipped missiles at the nearby U.S. bases. The Congressman suggested that moving some of the bases to the Mid-Canada radar line along the 55th parallel would re move the fears of these citizens. In Ottawa, there have been in dications that U.S.-C a n a d a plans for beefing up northern defence are centered on the use of American jet squadrons, rather than shifting missile bases. Two Bomarc bases are to be established in Eastern Canada, along with a SAGE (semi-auto matic ground environment) con trol. The bases are to be located near North Bay and north of Buckingham. There is the prospect that as the RCAF's CF-100 planes be come obsolescent, more modern USAF jets will be stationed at Canadian bases. They could be located at such RCAF stations as North Bay, St. Hubert and Uplands. . Mr. McElroy arrives at Uplands at 11 a.m. He will hold a press conference at the airport and then will hold discussions with Mr. Pearkes, members of the cabinet defence committee and senior defence officers. The U.S. defence secretary will fly back to Washington late Tuesday afternoon.
