TOUKSDAY, MATiCTT 12, 1931. aOE BE T Eft All The Local News REPORTS TO LABOR Hffl Alderman Eddy Forecasts No Light Reductions During Year In the opinion of Alderman A. M. Eddy there will be no reduction in light rate this year. Reporting lsat night to the Trades and Labor Council on the events In city council during the past two weeks Alderman Eddy referred to the Six months' hoist given the proposed reduction when it was Introduced last Monday. He thought the postponement was merely the writing on the wall and would prove to be the fate of light reductions this year.- Similarly, In reply to a question arising out of his report the Labor alderman voiced his unfailing belief in public ownership but was , emphatic that he thought public ownership of gas absolutely intestable. No government should enter the realm of natural 'gas, he believed, voicing bis reasons for this belief, which were briefly summed up In reference to the "gambling" element centring around gas. The trades council learned last night that the dispute of last fall between the Teamsters' Union and the Saskatoon Bread Company hod not yet been settled. Labor reiterated in support of the men who were locked out and efforts will be made to continue the support for other bakeries, which was won at that time. To this end M. Davenport, president of the Teamsters' Union will address a number of ratepayers associations and will 61ace the position of the union men efore the ratepayers. It was true, It was stated, that from the adverttsment appearing in the press last week the bread company is now offering higher wages than any other concern but this was believed to be a temporary measure and still, It was stated, the bread company refused to allow its employees to1 join a union. VJF.C ACTION That the strike had had some effect was believed by Mr. Davenport, who referred to conversations said to have been held between U.F.C. officials and representatives of the Lake of the Woods Milling Company. The farmers' organisation had sent out word to their locals detailing the strike and asking their members to refrain from buying Lake of the Woods products. This policy may be continued further, it was announced. Some discussion took place last night relative to men holding two jobs, such as working at manual work in tlfe day time and playing in orchestras at night. Complaint was made by a delegate from the Musicians' Union who said a dance hall recently opened in the city was not a union one. He asked support of the council. ' No action was taken last night by Labor's official body and the matter will again be discussed by the musicians. Protest was also voiced at some reports that men in relief camps were working ten hours per day for 20 per month. This will be taken up with the provincial government. NEWOFFICEB9 " C.

GREAT ACTRESS IN POWERFUL DRAMA Ohatterton Splendid in "The Right to Love," Feature Show at Capitol For powerful drama, an absorbing story and superb acting see "The Right to Love." one of the season's best offerings at the Capitol Theatre today and Friday. Theatre goers who witness the unfolding of the life story of two girls, one of this generation and one of the last, will be convinced that no other actress of the talking screen of today could have done justice to this vebjlcle as Ruth Chatterton does. Miss Chatterton,, known as "first lady of the screen," justifies her claim to the title again, just as she did in "Madame X," "Sarah and Son" and "Anybody's Woman," all top notch productions. fiThe Right to Love" vibrates with emotion. Joy and sorrow intermingle In ways that gorge the throat. The histrlonlo success of this stellar actress Is all the greater for her dual characterizations in this picture. Blighted love courses ' through the film to a final realization of happiness for the second generation. It is a story of the love of youth and the deep devotion and affection of a mother to her daughter. But enough of the plot; it should be seen to be fully appreciated. There are beautiful settings In this production, based on the novel "Brook Evans,'' by Susan Glaspell, scenes which shift from the eastern states to Colorado and from the mountainous state to China Fine acting of the cast delights all the way through. Miss Chatterton, of course, is outstanding, but she Is very ably supported by Paul Lukas, David Manners and others. The bill is a long one and every bit of it Is good. A Charley Chase comedy is a laugh getter, a novelty band and song feature is far bet ter tnan usual ana a comeay sun A Fox movietone news reel contains Interesting shots from far and near. G. C. A.

It Is based on actual conditions which are said to have existed in penitentiaries in .tie United Sta. .s. Three thousand men, all couped up, idle, with practically no fresh air or exercise, some of them mere boys whose celt mates are murders and robbers, others there on "manslaughter" charges, the result of perhaps one foolish escapade resulting in accidental killing.

It is no wonder that the inmates of the neruttntiary plan a desperate effort to break away from their imprisonment. The big scenes ot the riot are magnificent and spectacular. A machine gun battle la staged between the inmates and the guards of th orison, and army tanks are also used. Shorts on the program, are a comedy, "Blood and Thunder," which we considered mediocre, the musical quartet, four men garbtd aa monks who sang "The Rosary" and other popular songs was quite pleasing. A Fox Movietone waa the concluding number ot the offering. S. M. What The Press Agents Say Shakespeare and Mitt on both have celebrated in verse the beauty and sweetness of England's boy sopranos.

Twelve youngsters dressed in their scarlet and gold vestments of Tudor days meut daily to sing the services in the little old world Chapel Savoy situated In the most ancient part of London. When a tour by this unique musical organization was contemplated, a precedent had to be created. Never before had one of the royal choirs left the uhores of England and therefor before the children could set out, special permission had to be obtalml from His Mai sty. The King. Through the Duchy of Lancaster, the royal consent waa graciously granted and arrangements were made for the children to give concerts in the principal cities of North America this season.
