SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBEK .1 3, 1 9 4 3. The Star-Phoenix Goes Home. j mm All Consumers To Get Fair Share ofJFuels "Through the allocation officers, solid fuels are being distributed so that every consumer will have a fair share for his immediate use with schools and hospitals receiving: special attention," said Mr. Justice Donald Maclean, regional solid fuels representative for Saskatchewan, on his return. Tuesday from a Calgary conference of representatives from the four Western Provinces. Mr. Justice Maclean stated that strip mining, made more effective by the use of modern machinery and not requiring a great deal of man power, would help the coal shortage and that the expected increase in wood production would be under way in a few weeks. SIIOl'LD COMPLAIN The serious shortage of coal and wood was due primarily to the man power shortage and to the greatly Increased consumption of coal in war industry and by ships on both roasts of Canada. The Saskatchewan representative explained that If, at any time, some consumer should be overlooked un-' wittingly, by any dealer, the consumer could bring the matter to the attention of his rural municipal secretary or refer it to the regional representative. All complaints would receiye immediate attention, he said,, adding that up to the present all complaints had been satisfactorily solved. "At this stage a consumer cannot reasonably expect a whole winter's supply of fuel," he stated. "If he has neglected to take advantage of the opportunities last summer to lay in a larger supply than usual, he will have to take what he can get from any dealer, but he can rest assured that he will not be without sufficient coal for his immediate use." Mr. Justice Maclean declared that the consumer's co-operation was a most Important element In his own : ultimate good and that he should 'be mosWcarcful in the use of fuel If the consumer would make four tons of coal do the work of five ' with the same proportions apply- ling for wood, the whole fuel prob- ' 1cm would be solved, he said. "No serious question arises In the distribution of coal from the mines," he stated. "Coal will be shipped so as to avoid unnecessary haulage. The regional representative de clared that dealers were giving excellent co-operation in the ration- lng of coal to consumers In their localities, both to the representatives and to each other. ' Defer Action On Franchise The City Council Tuesday night discussed three more letters it had received In connection with the gas franchise and decided that further action would be suspended until the council meets in the near future with Walter F. Thorn and other officers of the Northern Natural Gas Company Limited, holders of the franchise. "Mr. Thorn has had encouraging reports as to the prospects of steel : pipe and while nothing like the re quired quantity is available now, it does seem likely that it can be ob tained by next spring," Commis sioner Andrew Leslie read from a letter from Eatey, ,Moxon, Schmitt and McDonald, solicitors tor the company. "Mr. Thorn's main difficulty has been to get any assurance that the necessary valves and. couplings of the type required can be purchased and delivered so that the work can proceed in an orderly fashion," the letter continued. "These fittings constitute one of the main problems since they involve the use of brass and bronze, which are very scarce and can only be obtained at the present time under a high pri ority for war work. "Mr. Thorn and the management of the company wish me to assure you that they are anxious to put the scheme under way at the earliest possible moment there is promise that not only can a ctart be made, but that the work can be carried through to completion within a reasonable time. A letter had also been received from Crane, Limited, stating that Page Hcrsey Company, VVelland, Ont, made standard ,12-lnch pipe, suitable for this type of gas line. and that the crevioua statement made in the council chamber that six-inch pipe was the largest manu factured In Canada, was Incorrect. D. B. McWilliams of the Dresser Manufacturing Company, with which an order for more than $500,0CO of material for the con struction of the pipe line had failed to materialize when the situation In 1941 made it impossible to build the pipe line, said that if the gas company could obtain an AA1 pri ority order and a permit from the steel controller, his company could possibly make shipment of all the Dresser material required within six months of receipt of the order. "Perhaps even more difficult at the present time than the securing of pipe and couplings, would be obtaining meters, gas burning equipment such as space heaters, gas stoves and furnaces, or conversion burners for already installed furnaces," he stated. "The Information which we have on hand is that old established gas companies are experiencing tremendous difficulties in obtaining such equipment, even for war plant Installation, and are even searching the country for second hand equipment," Mr. MeWilliams wrote, adding that there was also the labor problem. He was not optimistic over Saskatoon obtaining the neces- sary metal permits from the Domin-j on metals controller. i Some domestic consumers might be obliged to take, according to their location, coal which they had not used previously to any great extent, he added. Strip mining had been used for coa deposits near the surface in the Estevan fields for some years and new and Improved machines would Increase such production, he explained. Other regional representatives at the Calgary conference were Mr. Justice C. C. McLaurin, Alberta; Or. Sidney Smith, president of the University of Manitoba, Manitoba, and Laurence Killam, British Columbia. J. S. Whalley, Dominion wood-fuel controller, was also present with several allocation officers. One purpose of the la; (hiy being sponsored Saturday ny the Auxiliary to the Fighting French Is to raise money to buy food to bo smuggled or dropped by plane to the thousands of young Frenchmen who, in order to escape being sent to Germany to work in the armament factories, are joining the Partisans and the Franc-Tlreurn (guerrilla fighters) in the mountains of the Pyrenees and the Alps. There are many cumps where these young men in groups of 6C0 or more are trained to fight the Nazis. The importance of getting food to them cannot be overestimated, Fighting French officials said. The money raised will be forwarded to Algiers for this purpose. TRAFFIC COl'RT Jake J.

Thus In the larger part of the Do minion if rain halta a baseball game in one city it will be possible for newspapers in other centres to say so and the destruction of a building by storm will no longer have to be submitted to censors.

L. E. SHAW Cites Johnson Case as Illustration Present Liquor Laws Can Drive "A pitiful case of perjury of the worst kind and an illustration of what the present liquor laws can drive people into," Mr. Justice H. V. Bigelow declared this morning in King's Bench non-Jury court, as he confirmed the previous conviction of Bessie Johnson, 124 Avenue C, south, on a charge of unlawfully keeping liquor for sale, and dismissed her appeal with costs. Bessie Johnson drew a fine of $500 and costs of $22.60, and was sentenced to five months in jail by Magistrate Brown, March 25, in City Police Court, In addition to her previous fine she will now pay approximately $200 more In costs of the appeal against the conviction. She admitted four previous convictions under the liquor act. "She is convicted beyond doubt. I believe the witnesses for the Crown told the truth and the ac cused and Prou.se did not tell the truth," Mr. Justice Bigelow stated. James Lloyd Frouse, who was found guilty of aiding and abetting Bessie Johnson to commit an offense against the liquor act, by Magistrate Brown, and paid a fine of $200 and costa of $1.75, told the court this morning that the liquor seized by the city police had been his property and that Mrs. Johnson had never brought any liquor to 124 Avenue C, south, Pleased With Club Studies "In my frequent trips to the various large centres of Canada I have been deeply impressed by the many excellent suggestions on post war rehabilitation resulting frcm studies of the subject by service clubs, and it is my hope that every organization will continue with this problem and that they will send their recommendations to the Gov ernment," stated George E. Hunt, general superintendent of the Im perial Life Assurance Company of Canada, in an Interview here. Mr. Hunt visited the local office of his company Monday, and In company with J. J. Leddy, branch manager for northern Saskatchewan, conducted an inspection of the company's Interests here, before proceeding to his headquarters at Toronto following a coast-to-coast tour. Asked what was the present status of Insurance in Canada, Mr. Hunt said that there had been an Increase of 22.3 per cent In insur ance written by all the companies of Canada over the corresponding eight months of last year. He also quoted Government figures show ing that the position of life insur ance had, despite the great volume of claims paid out in the past 20 years, Improved financially to a remarkable degree. ASSETS INCREASE "Assets of the insurance com panies of Canada at the close of the last war totalled $258,000,000,'" said Mr, Hunt. "Two depressions and another war have, contrary to gen eral opinion, seen this Increase to its present total of $2,250,000,000." Harvest operations were in full swing in most of the sections of the West where he had occasion to visit, said Mr, Hunt, adding that northern Alberta expected to be finished by the end of the week. "I have always looked forward with pleasure to my visits to Saskatoon," stated Mr. Hunt. "It Is one of the cleanest and best laid out cities In Western Canada one In which the citizens may take a justifiable and pardonable pride." Mr. Hunt also expressed the opinion that Saskatoon was geographically well placed for the bene fits accruing from future develop ment of air transportation D. C. Disbcry, counsel for the appellant, argued that the Crown had brought no proof of Mrs. Johnson illegally keeping llqor for sale and that she could not be convicted under that charge, though she might have been found guilty on a charge of illegal selling.

It was pointed out during the discussion that in most cases military authorities pre ferred, students to have their collegiate diploma before enlisting. Attendance reports delivered by representatives of each high school showed a marked Increase In almost every grade, this year's total being 2,289 by comparison with last year's 1,984. Mention was made of the possibility of extending the rule allowing free tuition to children of parents on active service. The present arrangement grants this consideration only to those whose homes are within the city limits. Such extension might result in more students than could be accommodated, so the matter was dropped, and for the time being, at least, the city limits rule prevails. , The present arrangement requiring students In the sea cadets to devote one night a week to training was said to be unsatisfactory, In that It caused serious interruption of the students' homework assignments, and it was recommended that a letter outlining the position taken by the board be sent to the officer in command, inviting him to co-operate in a readjust nient that would be mutually agreeable. It was recommended that one of the principals attend the meeting of the intcr-service committee wouleTdelay Continued on Page 4, Column 4 Entertainment tin light!
