Liberal. Fraser Valley.

When 11 divorce bills were called for first reading, the dogged Fraser Valley member rose. I wish to take exception to these bills being read for the first time until we have a copy of the evidence. I have not a copy of the evidence of bill 432, he said. Bill 432, couched in its legal title, is an act for the relief of Pierre-Ben-Danais Warren." It grants, when passed, divorce to this man, a French speaking Liberal member being involved as corespondent. The evidence being taken in private, as is that of all divorce bills originating in Quebec and dealt with by the Senate committee, it is not public property.

Mr. Speaker Gaspard Fauteux ruled that first reading of Senate bills is not debatable, the bills were given first reading. He then called for their being given second reading. I do not think any member should be asked to pass any bills about which he knows nothing at all," protested Mr. Cruickshank.

The dedegations chief is George Mclvor, chairman of the Canadian Wheat Board. Other members are Oliver B. Davidson and James Lawrie of the Department of Trade and Commerce and Charles Boxer, Canadian Wheat Board representative in Washington.

They were the last to arrive in Paris. The delegates were received by R. V. Biddulph, European commissioner of the Canadian Wheat Board, and Col. J.

J. Robertson, Canadian agricultural commissioner in London. WHOLE PROBLEM Later at the Plaza-Athanee Hotel, the delegations headquarters, Mclvor said he expected the conference to provide an opportunity to survey the whole cereals problem. Canada is very interested because we normally are very large exporters of wheat and flour and are interested in continuing our ro-operation because food probably is the most important economic problem and cereals are the most important food problem.

COMMERCIAL COURSES Instruction in English as well as French should be made obligatory in the schools of Quebec under the jurisdiction of the Indian affairs branch, the report suggested.

Consideration also should be given to the teaching of commercial subjects in the higher grades of all Indian day and residential schools. The commission under the joint chairmanship of Senator J. Fred Johnston and Don F. Brown, Liberal, Essex West, traveled 3,000 miles last October to visit 21 Indian reservations and interview 1,707 witnesses in the tour of Indian centres in the east. The report, which was tabled Tuesday by Rt.

Hon. C. D. Howe, acting minister of mines and resources, covered 950 pages. The report also recommended the granting of old age pensions to Indians.

It also recommended that the Indian affairs branch should determine that Indian ex-servicemen are informed of their rights under the veterans affairs legislation of their rehabilitation. STUDY HOUSING Housing for Indians was gone into thoroughly by the commission, which found that if the proposed housing scheme of the Indian affairs branch is carried out, it will provide the Eastern Canada Indians with homes which will compare more than favorably with similar conditions enjoyed by other Canadians in even higher income groups. Work of the Indian affairs branch in improving the social and economic status of the Maritimes Indians since 1940 alsA was lauded in the commissions report. It stated: The Indian affairs branch has done much to improve the social and economic status of the Maritime Indians and has formulated long term plans, which should ensure that the Indians of the present and future generations will be advanced educationally and economically that they will be able to enjoy the rights and privileges of Canadian citizenship.

TIMBER CUTTING UP SAINT JOHN, N.B. The 1947 cut of hardwoods and softwoods in New Brunswick was estimated by authorities yesterday at 270,000,000 board feet, an increase of between 15 and 20 percent. feeling of independence Lend-Lease For Europe Labor Idea Morrison Says U.K. -Faces Heavy Slash In Living Standard 4 By Associated Press i LONDON, Eng. Parliament had a hint from the government today, only three days prior to the Paris economic conference, that renewal of United States lend-lease before fall might be necessary to save Britain from unproductive poverty.

GOODS ESSENTIAL We cannot indefinitely go on importing what we cannot pay for, Deputy Prime Minister Herbert Morrison said night in House of Commons economic debate. To bring buying down to ability to pay, he declared, Britain would have to cut imports 25 percent and make great adjustments in production and standard of living. The only remedy he said, lies in devising some means whereby billions of dollars worth of North and South American production could be transferred across the Atlantic without the necessity for immediate payment in the form of an equal and opposite flow of European goods. Observers noted the similarity between this proposal and wartime lend-lease. CREDIT NEARLY GONE Of Londons morning papers, only the ruling Labor partys Daily Herald refrained from criticizing government economic The Communist Daily Worker said the policy appears to be to drift until the Americans come over with a form of lend-lease.

Britain now is running into debt at the rate of 450,000,000 pounds about $1,800,000,000 yearly to pay for food for her people, still on thin and raw materials for her industry, slowly recuperating from the war. If she keeps on drawing at the current rate on her $3,750,000,000 U.S. credit, it will be gone by the end of next winter. SELF-HELP URGED Morrison made no direct, mention of the offer of Secretary of State George C. Marshall by which the U.S.

would help European countries provided they organized for economic recovery. This matter has resulted In a British-French call for a 24-nation conference scheduled to begin in Paris Saturday. The deputy prime minister did say, however, that Europes nations must agree on methods to help themselves and that otherwise it would not be reasonable to expect the full co-operation of the United States and other countries from whom the bulk of the assistance must be drawn. Court Battle Over Socks 0 TORONTO Maroon socks with yellow diamonds and red lines frightened a local courtroom yesterday as the hearing of prices board charges against the Model Hosiery Mills of Hanover, began. The socks were exhibits of line 7912 of the companys stock, which the prices board charges were sold in local stores as line 7913, wholesaled at $11.75 a dozen.

The inferior line 7912 has no approved price by the board. Local dealers who sold the disputed socks told the court that the socks represented a good quality of mens footwear. One merchant said that the quality was as good or better than lines from other companies. Only difficulty, said the haberdashery salesman, I couldnt get enough of them. The hosiery company faces nine charges laid by the board with other stocks to be heard from in future hearings.

COMMENTS ON PILOTS LONDON, Eng. British medical authorities believe that 40-year-old airplane pilots should have special medical investigation, 80 percent should retire at 45, and at 50 no man should be in charge of a passenger plane.

At least a dozen food, agriculture and other ministers have arrived for what will be the worlds first attempt under the United Nations to pool resources for meeting nation-wide supply problems. Russia and Argentina have not been invited because they refused invitations to join the International Emergency Food Council and the U.N. Food and Agricultural Organization which is sponsoring the conference. Spain has not been invited because she never has been asked to join either body.

Freight Slash Benefits West U.S. Roads to Raise Tariff in North, East WASHINGTON The interstate commerce commission yesterday directed the railroads to proceed with freight rate adjustments, increasing rates 10 percent in the north and east and lowering tariffs by the same amount in the south and western states east of the Rocky Mountains.

Y. XSEDCI Sans burn Mythical Estate 'Basis of Charge TORONTO This is the story of a man who lived as a woman, married another man in Western Canada, formed a ladies auxiliary which she headed, served a brief term in jail where her false identity was disclosed, returned to Ontario to lead a normal life, and eventually landed in Don Jail faced with charges of swindling a Western Ontario merchant of more than $34,000. The man, Sandford Ross, is 'now in jail, unable to raise $10,000 bail set when he appeared in court here. CLAIMED $69,000 The fantastic tale was unfolded by Toronto police yesterday when they identified Ross, a man of many aliases, as Jean or Gene Crandall who 13 years ago claimed to be heir to a $69,000 legacy left by his grandmother and produced a telegram allegedly from Chicago to prove1 his claim. At that time Ross was working on a Springfield, farm.

Shortly after pulling the legacy hoax Ross announced he was actually a woman masquerading as a man. Arthur Carty, a London newspaper man is credited with exploding the original legacy hoax. Carty traced the source of the telegram which Ross was carrying after he (Carty) noted part of the estate consisted of Victory Bonds. The United States in World War I issued only Liberty Bonds. Police checked further on Ross claim and later jailed him for spreading false news.

It was then Ross was medically examined and pronounced a man. POSED AS WOMAN At this point Jean broke down and related the story of how he married a man in Regina, traveled to British Columbia where he headed the ladies organization he had organized. Later he served three months in a womens prison, was released and given a certificate of good conduct which he displayed w'ith considerable pride. He also carried his marriage licence. In 1931, calling himself Jean Priscilla Campbell, and posing as mother of twins, Ross was convicted on a vagrancy charge at Fort William.

Following his arrest in Toronto May 14, when he walked into a police trap at the post office, it was revealed he had been charged with obtaining over $34,000 from the Western Ontario merchant who had gone broke as a result. From the merchant it was learned Ross had posed as heir to a $300,000 estate and had produced letters and papers to substantiate his claim. In good faith the merchant loaned out sums ranging from $50, with promises from Ross to be repaid doubly when the legacy came through. Ross was arrested by Detectives Bill Mulholland and Bill Bolton when he walked into the post office to pick up a registered letter. Acting on a search warrant detectives made an exhaustive search of Ross richly outfitted cottage at A GOOD iNAME Two grain wheat and malted barley make a big difference, all right!

They failed to locate any of the missing money but have now seized a new car which Ross left in a downtow'n parking lot near a hotel where he was staying at the time of his arrest.

Shortly after his appearance in court here, interested parties in London, remembering the famous Crandall hoax, began a move which eventually led Toronto police to cheek the fingerprints of Jean Crandall with those of Sandford Ross. They were identical. During the past two years Ross is reported to have led a fast and high life. In the Tillsonburg and Aylmer areas merchants said he paid as much as $100 bonuses for fast delivery of hard-to-get commodities for his cottage. He became known, they said, a sa man of means.

It has also been established that Ross has a wife and two children whose whereabouts are not known. Burglarized Parents Home Beat His Father, Fled With $240 i LOUISBURG, N. C. An exconvict was held without bail here today on a charge of burglarizing the home of his parents. An elderly farm wife, Mrs.

Joe Swanson, testified at a preliminary hearing yesterday that her only son, 35-year-old Thurston Swanson, wearing- a crude mask, beat his father over the head with a stick and then fled with $240. Thurston, who had served a prison term, admitted the attack. The 60-year-old father sobbed helplessly on the witness stand and was dismissed without testifying. Judge Hamilton Hobgood ordered the son held for the October term of Superior court on a first-degree burglary, charge. Conviction carries a mandatory death sentence in North Carolina unless the jury recommends life imprisonment.
