Brown, painter, weary of his work In the hangar here, sat down to rest on a plank. An instant later, from a loudspeaker hooked up to the radio from Chicago, came the words: "Go ahead. Brown." The aged painter rose quickly and started swinging his brush. "How'd that Chicago operator know I was loafing," he mumbled. After a good laugh, the local operator explained that Pilot L. C. Brown, flying toward Chicago, had asked to transmit a message from his plane to the Chicago station, and the operator was simply telling him to "fire away."

Bv (HARLEH BISHOP t Southard News Bureau. Ottawa.) OTTAWA, June 4. The days after the prorogation of Parliament find the government dealing with three particular matters. First, there Is the Economic Conference and the arrangements essential to It. Secondly, Is the national situation particularly In regard to Industry embarrassed by the business recession and thirdly, there are certain Investigations related to both of these subjects. One aspect concerns the contribution which Canada should make to the conference, in order to help ensure Its success. Another Is whether, to what extent and In what particulars, financial aid should be extended to corporate concerns which are In trouble, either because of the prevailing conditions, or because their financial setups contemplated far more prosperous circumstances than are now being encountered throughout the world. To a certain degree, after a hard session, cabinet ministers are scattering, but cot to the extent that is usual, lor any one connected, directly or Indirectly, with government at Ottawa, this year presents scant prospect of surcease from labor. AVOID- BARGAINING M'lRlT. In the recent session, when the conference was the subject of a very disjointed discussion, one of the points stressed by the opposition was that the gathering should not be approached in any spirit of bargaining. While this process may not be overdone, few here appear to entertain any Idea that It will be avoided. Tiie British, It is pointed out, being the foremost race of traders In earth, It would be surprising if, In a trade and tarlif conference, that Inherent tendency failed to have some manifestation. Liberal concessions on both sides are hoped for. Rt. Hon. J. H. Thomas' statement that the basis of negotiation should be "less of what we can get and more of what we can give," seems to have a responsive echo here.

TO KOREISTALL EXTREMITY. In the purely domestic sphere, the recent act of Parliament enabling the government to financially assist corporations, permits of a broad construction, which -certain industries are not particularly backward in seeking to invoke. The government, however, is most unlikely to agree. The legislation was designed to prepare for some possible extremity, in the event of economic disturbance, from without, rather than from within. It is difficult to find here, any one Interpreting the legislation as Intended to aid the ordinary industry of business, caught in the tram of economic tribulation. Once that were started, no one could quite Jor-see where it would end. Raiher, the Idea seems to have been a simple, precautionary preparation for any possible contingency affecting those institutions whose connection with the financial structure of the country Is basic and fundamental. Happily, as Investigation has disclosed, the banks are in a sound position, their coffers are lull of the savings of a cautious public and their position exceptionally liquid. Undoubtedly, some oi them have made large advances to industry which re. Tu?i Be No Good For Him to Sing The rnsoner s Song KANSAS.

OCEAN TRAVEL BOOMS FR0MNEW YORK (Continued from Page 1) Discovered Comets and Is Telescope Lens Expert. By RAY BLAC. fUnited Press Staff Correspondent) QT. CHARLES, III, June 4. yj (IF) A meek little man who, as a boy, discovered four comets with a home-made telescope, bent over a lens in his parage today, praying that penitentiary gates will open for him so he can do penance for a criminal offense. A sjuard stood beside him, ready to take him back to the jail a few miles away at Geneva when the day's work was done. Meanwhile, leading astronomers of seven universities pressed their plea that John E. Mellish be saved for science. At 4S. Mellish a farm boy from Cottage Grove, Wis., is a sort of 20th century epitome of the genius of Roger Bacon and Rousseau. CIlARTEIt COMETS. Although he never went to college, he Is recognized as one of the leading astronomers and naturalists In the country. He has spent his life slaving eighteen end twenty hours a day grinding telescope lenses or threading the woods in search of a new bird or flower. "But I want to go to the penitentiary," he said today. "I trangressed society's laws and I must do penance." Mellish pleaded guilty to the crime a year ago. Now State's Attorney George D. Carbary and Circuit Judge John K. Kewhall of Kane County are in a quandary as to what disposition to make of his caBe. "His hard work broke him down. I b?lieve," aaid Dr. Edwin B. Frost, head of TTerkes Observatory on Wil- liamsb&c. Wis., where Mellish spent six months as an assistant in his youth. "He wrote to us when he was 21 and asked us the name of a comet he had sighted with a telescope he had made in the basement of hla farmhouse, using his own charts of the heavens.

In three hurried minutes John Hughes Curtis ernergea from his cell In the county Jail here today, pleaded net guilty to an indictment charging obstruction of justice in the Lindbergh case, and was escorted back to Jail to await trial June 27.

"With force and arms," Curtis wilfully gave false information "for the purpose of preventing and hindering" the arrest of the kidnapper-murderers of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr.. according to the legal verbiage of the Indictment. It was understood, however, that this was merely court phraseology and did not imply the confessed hoaxer had used physical force or was attempting to protect any specific person by his Imaginative story of contacts with the kidnappers. Lloyd Fisher, local counsel for Curtis, said after the arraignment he believed his client would be acquitted. W. C. Pender, defense attorney from Richmond, was not present. LAST BILLET1N. With the Issuance of "bulletin No. 252" the state police contact bureau set up in the state house at Trenton shortly after the kidnapping, went out of existence today. In his last official message to the press before the bureau closed. Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf finally revealed the names of the handwriting experts who had comeared the oritti- nal Lindbergh ransom rfote with the Jalsie letters sent to Dr. John F Condon of the Bronx.

British Columbia's return to the London market for money after an absence of nearly twenty years lias been attended by an outstanding success. It Is apparent from reports in the hands of the treasury officials of the government. An Inscribed stock loan of 1.500,000 was underwritten In Its entirety. It was offered to the public first between 99 and 99.25 per 100, and was In brisk demand among Investors. The government has been congratulated on Its move by leading financial authorities of the country, and its example will most likely be followed by other Canadian Interests In the neur future.

For example, few of the large In dustries of British Columbia will show a taxable profit during this i year. Next year their Income tax will j n-15 be down to a new low. In many 23.19 cases they will pay no income tax at 9-14 all. 22-17 In the same way, private Income 5. 9.3 taxation next year, bawd on this n-13 year's earnings, will show a Blump. 14.1s even If world conditions start to take 21-n-a-l a turn upwards during the present 8-11 year. The year 1933 will thus be the 25.21 testing time of provincial finance and 9.14 the crisis of provincial taxpayers. 2-25 Reducing existing expenditures to 3. g.Q balance the present budget will not 26-23 be enough. Reductions only suffi- 1 1-16 cient to balance the current revenue 30-20 will balance the next budget and avoid another heavy Increase In taxation. That. Is why the Legislative Buildings await with eagerness the recommendations of the Kidd committee. If It can offer a way out, the taxpayers pocketbooks may yet be saved. Re problem 980 by A. Newcomer. A correspondent writes: "In your footnote to above you say 'this position seems familiar to us. If any of our readers have sern It before, we should be pleased to hear from them." In answer to your query 1 beg to state that this problem Is an end game arising from the Fife opening, the piny being credited to the late John Diummond of Denny Scotland."

We are pleased to note that the very able and constructive article wrlttcu by E. O. Taylor, Vancouver,, and published In our Issue of December 26 has been reproduced In the April Draughts Review and has been favorably commented upon by the editor of that Journal. This question of restriction is of the utmost Importance, and can not be left In Its present unsatisfactory state. We believe that the solution offered by Mr. Taylor Is the only logical and equitable way to deal with the matter. We should be pleased to have the views of others on this subject, particularly those of our American and English readers. We hope also that the Canadian Checker Assocla-; tlon will give this matter of restriction that serious consideration which Its Importance undoubtedly deserves. ANNCAI.
