'C-'- By: Wj DUncy i Longer lUaw skepsH By Walt Disney For C-S-1 Approved Treasury Board Also Extends; Staggered Hours Treasury Board has con-. eluded its studv of reicom mendations to 1 "sireamSline" the Dominion Civil! Service in a way that inake a maximum contribution to Canada's war effort, it was learned on Friday evening. Certain suggestions! made by the Civil Service Cpmmiision and high officials the public -service were ratified Others were discarded either on grounds of too great disruption of the existing civil secyice, or of (the feeling on the paA of certain Cabinet- that! "the erv-ice" Is" doing a gbpdjjob and it would not be wis jto overload its workers. Recommendations approved by Treasury Board will be referred back to C.

H. Bland, Chairman of the Civil Service Commission on Monday, when he rqturns rom Western Canada. It if said j-they will go into effect after a short period which will be allowed (government workers to alter theiii way of life to conform to aiew condi tions, New Herniations. New regulations governing the operation of the Civil Service are aid to be as follows: (1) Putting into ffect pf a seven-and-a-half hour day foV all non-war departments, and other branches not already working these hours. (2) Operation of a system of staggered whereby workers in 'one zone Government buildings will report' for work at 8.40 o'clock in the morning; in a second zone at 9 o'clock, and in a third zone! at (Street, car and bus schedules will be altered conform to these new hours.) 6' (3) A uniform grant throughout the entire serviie of one dollar, a night, orj.

half-dayf for any overtime worked by an lem-ploye in excess of the, seven-and-a-half hour schedule. The dol-lar will not be regarded as dver-time pay, but as supper money and carfare. No regular overtime pay will be granted, land, overtime in all departments will be pared to a minimum. 1 (4) Transfer of. certain fem-ployes of non'-warf departments to war departments vfhen feasible.

The transfers, It is said, will not be carried tot extremes, but departments kept! operating with. reduced staffs, sd as to be in a position to resumi activities In the post-war period Backed By, Ilsfcy. It is claimed thai! Finance Minister Ilsley was ope of the staunchest defenders of Icivil servants at Treasury Board sessions. He is believed to have taken the attitude that the vast majority of Government workers are not only doing 1 their jbest but giving exceptionally efficient wartime service. I The Finance Ministers attitude Is said to have been identical With the position he took in jthe House of Commons in July this year, when he said: "Wei refused permission to a great mjany trivil sen-ants to enlist.

In a' great many cases they are doing non-combattant work, although theyare members of the active forces.

They are accountants, auditors and so forth. For the most part, their pay and allowances are considerably larger than, they were in the Civil Service. I had a list prepared by one department showing the very large increases in pay." The majority of Mr. Ilsley's colleagues of the Cabinet are said to have swung around to his viewpoint on the matter of regulations governing the Civil Service. It is also pointed out Prime Minister himself a former Civil Servant and Deputy Minister, has expressed his gratification repeatedly during the war years, over the industry and willingness of Government workers to put forth a maximum effort Costa Rican Guards 'Repulse'.

U-Boat Seeking Food SAN JOSE, Costa. Rica, Nov. 13. (P) A German submarine prowling close to the Panama Canal was "repulsed" in a sharp exchange of gunfire with Costa Rican coastal defences in an apparent attempt to put ashore crewmen to forage for desperately needed food and supplies, was announced today. The U-boat made two attacks with its deck guns firing at an unspecified point on the coast Costa Rican military forces re plied with gun fire immediately, and said they "repulsed" the at tack.

Two of the submarine crew were reported wounded. One Costa Rican soldier was wound ed slightly. This was the third announced enemy attempt to obtain food for submarines in Costa Rica.

Phone 2-5777 Resigns Post With Gov't Firm The Munitions Department last night announced the resignation of H.

J. Carmlchael, 51, as president and director of War Supplies, the Canadian Government-owned company charged with implementing the Hyde Park agreement, and the appointment of V. W. T. Scully, 42, as its president and a director succeeding Mr.

Carmlchael. Under the Hyde Park agreement negotiated between Prime Minister King and President Roosevelt, Canada is able to' pay for her imports from -the United States in kind rather than in dollars, and is thus free to meet war costs without resorting to borrowing abroad. The Department said Mr. Carmlchael has resigned because of the pressure of his duties as co ordinator of production and chair man of the Munition Department Production Board. In assuming the presidency of War Supplies, Mr.

Scully will retain his present post as its treasurer. He was born in "Ballymahon, County Longford, Ireland, and served in the First Great War with the 28th Battalion, London Regiment (Artists Rifles).

Prime Minister King Confirm Safety of Famous Relic Knows Secret Hiding Place ofiHistoric Stone of Destiny' Prime Minister King confirmed Friday that since early in the war he has been one of the. custodians of secret plans showing the location of the historic "Coronation Stone" which was removed from Westminster Abbey to prevent any chance of its destruction under enemy air attack. The fact Mr. King held this secret came to light when a report of a speech delivered in Dublin by the Dean of Westminster was printed in an editorial in The Journal of Friday. The Dean, said this valuable relic had been "hidden away in a spot known to very including the Canadian Prime Minister.

13. VP) The Argentine Government announced tonight that the United States had presented' to it three memoranda charging the existence of Narl espionage in Argentina. -The Foreign Office said the memoranda were presented by United-States Ambassador Norman Armour and that they were an answer to an Argentine request to Washington to give evidence in support of charges that Nazi agents were using Argentina and Chile as bases for Under Secretary of State Sumner Welles, in an address at Boston October 8, made the assertion that two South American states were tolerating the operation of Axis agents. He did not name Argentina or Chile, but both these countries, which still maintain diplomatic relations with Germany and Italy, took President Juan Antonio Rios of Chile cancelled a proposed visit to the United States, and Argentina issued a statement strongly rejecting Welles1 charges. It made a request for evidence, and the memoranda delivered, today presumably gave specific information in the hands of the United States Government Drives in Air Raid Ajarm, Fined $100 SAINT JOHN, Nov.

Drivers are re- quired to stop their cars at the side of the street wheja the alarm sounds.

Mr. King said the plans and in structions came to him by mail early in the war and had been placed in "safe keeping" for the duration. What place Mr. King chose to keep the plans and whether he also shares the knowledge of hid ing-places for other British objects of historic value which have been removed from the danger of bombs, remains a secret V-V Biblical Origin. According to tradition, the Coronation Stone, built into the Coronation Throne in Westminster Abbey, was used by Jacob as a pillow at Bethel, It is supposed to have been removed-; to Ireland where, as the stone of destiny, it was the coronation seat of the kings of Munster.

says it was thence removed to Scotland where it was the coronation seat for Scottish kings, latterly at the Abbey of Scone where it remained for four centuries. In. 1296 it was carried off to London by King Edward after he had temporarily subjugated Scot land, -and placed in the chair of St Edward in which British kings sat for -their coronation, Since then the stone has figured in every coronation ceremony, in Westminster Mitchell in New York Returning Here Today NEW, YORK, Nov. 13 CP- Canada's Labor Minister, Hum phrey Mitchell, arrived here to day after a visit of several weeks in.
