PAGE 4 THE VANCOUVER SUN Vancouver's Own Newspaper WEDNESD AY, APRIL 6, 1938 Drastic Alberta Move to Wipe Out Private Debts 'Act to Leave Creditor At Mercy of His Debtor7 'After July 1, 1940, No Action Can Be Taken to Collect 4-Year-Old Debts' By STANLEY ROSS EDMONTON, April 6. Stated to be the last attempt at debt settlement before debt slashing legislation is resorted to, the Alberta government's new debt adjustment amendment constitutes the most drastic debt plan introduced to date. The amendment provides that after July 1, 1940, no action can be taken to force payment of any debt incurred prior to July 1,. 1936, unless, in the meantime, a new agree ment for payment has been entered into, or I the Debt Ad- iustmpnr Rnarrt has permitted the creditor to sue. At present no debtor residing ! in Alberta can be sued for a debt incurred prior to July, 1936, without the Board's consent. Thus, this amendment means that unless the creditor can induce such a debtor to make a new bargain or unless he can obtain permission to sue, his It's ll Duce F 4v- fx i v&ul P T .5 i r i Stanley Koss debt will be automatically wiped out by 1940. ONLY SAFEGUARD It is obvious that under such a setup the creditor will be at the mercy of his debtor. His only safeguard will be that should the debtor become too unreasonable the Board can permit the creditor to sue. But, there is good reason for stating that the Board will not exercise its powers unless the provocation is extreme. The amendment should therefore bring about a reducing and wip ing out of debts upon a whole sale scale. The government's debt protect ing policies are thus rounded out with this plan for cleaning up outstanding private debts by 1940. The scheme is not open to the same criticism as might be levelled at a uniform cut in all cases, because the Board can con- 5 t-JSfc, f ' VjP ""5$ i V I If Tt K At 21 TiKJm Much less formidable than usual, and certainly with a less belligerent tilt to his jaw, Benito Mussolini is pictured in one of his rare photos in civilian clothes.

Opponents of the bill point out, however, that since the Board is employed by the government and must act upon its orders, political expediency may enter into the picture, and since the gov ernment wishes to appeal to the debtor classes, their wishes may receive favorable consideration. EVADES PITFALLS Though the plan is drastic, it evades many pitfalls previously encountered, because it does not specifically provide for reductions of either principle or inter est. It merely places the creditor in the position of choosing between a voluntary settlement and a perpetual prohibition from collecting his debt Thus, unless the whole Debt Adjustment Act can be set aside as bankruptcy legislation, - the only risk this new amendment appears to run is that of being vetoed. If the present bill is set aside, the legislature will be immediately reconvened to pass either a flat cut or such other reduction as might appear to be the most practical, said on.

Designed for Comfort New Modern Theatre on East Broadway to Open Thursday The Rio theatre, at 1660 East Broadway, to be opened Thurs- day, adds another to the growing list of modern neighborhood theatres which provide top rank entertainment, using the best of equipment in comfortably furnished auditoriums. The building is fireproof from foundation to roof, and is designed for comfort and with special' attention to perfection of enjoyment of pictures through sight and sound. The latest type of equipment, with full range sound reproduc- tipn, has been installed. Constant fresh air and healthful ventila tion is taken care of by a complete air-conditioning plant. Special designing of indirect lighting, combined with the mod ern decoration scheme of the interior, creates an atmosphere of complete relaxation. Enjoyment is enhanced by the arrangement of the de-luxe chairs, in a man ner to provide maximum visibil ity from any position in the house. ' Seat angles have been so placed as to permit everybody to watch the screen with the head at natural, comfortable angle. And ample leg room is assured with chair rows 34 inches apart. Plenty of paved parking space is available adjacent to the theatre. Luxurious carpeting and artis try of decoration provide an ap propriate setting for the full en joyment of pictures thrown on the screen through the use of perfect equipment. Building construction was super vised by the owner, H. Archie Calladine, and union labor was used throughout.

Great Britain. , They have a full, deep 16 spring-to-edge seat cushion, constructed by skilled craftsmen, fitted to the chair with patent tilt-up brackets with rubber silence bumpers, allowing a wider seat than is usually manufactured.
