Bill Spence, hero of the MacAlpine rescue three years ago, was dead. Another, pilot Geoff Home-llay, lost for 13 days, was safe at a barren lands Indian camp. Tragedy struck the Spence plane on Friday, near Moose Lake, 45 miles northeast of here. A blizzard, an early twilight, forced a landing on the snow drifted lake, a wing was ripped from the plane, and it dashed madly on to destruction. Pilot Spence met instant death, while his mechanic and three passengers, including an R.C.M.P.

officer and his prisoner, were injured. Word of Home-Hays safety reached here this afternoon. He was found, after a week of aerial search by com- panion fliers, at an Indian camp near Oxford Lake. Jack Hone, president of the Arrow Airways, to whose northern fleet Pilot Home-Hay was attached, located the missing airman. He had been forced down by a crippled oil pipe line.

The machine will be repaired and flown out tomorrow, with Home-Hay at the controls. RESCUE PARTY USES AIRPLANE when tragedy overtook the plane I near the end of its journey. It was Whiteway who first regained consciousness after the crash. He had been hurled through the roof of the cabin when the plane struck and knocked out on the snow. Ho wlong he lay there, he did not know.

When consciousness returned he struggled to his feet and in a half delirium he made his way to the wreckage of what had been the cabin. PILOT WAS DEAD Indian runners, who had dashed over barren, snow-drifted trails, brought first word of the Spence tragedy to the "outside Saturday afternoon, A rescue plane, with Pilot S. J. McRorie at the controls, battled storm conditions to near the scene of the tragedy, but it was not until after a four-hour sleigh drive, the rescuers reached Bacon's Island, and a fishing camp where the injured had been taken. It was 11.30 o'clock Saturday night when McRorie, Dr.

N. G. Trimble Star-Phoenix today by Pilot Angus M. Campbell of Saskatoon. Forced down on Oxford Lake by loss of oil from the Hone Airways plane which he was flying, Home-Hay had suffered from scarcity of food during the time he was stranded in the backwoods.

So great was his hunger that the aviator had to munch hard tack all the way from Oxford Lake to Wabowden as he was piloted there by his old filcnd, Pilot Campbell, of (he M. and C. Aviation Company. Home-Hay reached Wabowden yesteiday anil he planned to return to his stranded ship today with a mechanic to fly it in to Wabowden. For nine days after he was forced down.

Pilot Home-Hay sheltered from the cold in a deserted pi os pector's cabin. In his search for food, he managed to catch two fish and snare two rabbits in backwoodsman fashion. For those days, he lived on the fish, rabbits and emergency rations from his plane. Weary of waiting by himself, he left the cabin and found a shack occupied by an Indian family. In addition to the adults, there were six children, all in one small shack.

The pilot bunked in with them but the Indians, too, were on starvation rations. Then, a moose was killed and there was plenty of meat for all. It was at Wabowden that Campbell and his mechanic, Earl Godfrey, met the rescued aviator yesterday. Campbell and Godfrey only reached their objective after hazardous flight into the hinterland. Bucking nasty weather.

Lady Wildfire was forced down twice on Friday during the flight from Saskatoon and again on Saturday at Cumberland Lake. The rescue plane reached Oxford House Sunday morning at II oclock and received information there on the position of Home-Hay's machine. While preparing to leave, Jack Hone, who had located the missing plane, also arrived at Oxford House, and Hone and Campbell, in their respective planes, set out on the hunt. Home-Hay was located in the Indian's cabin, three miles from the stranded machine. Their rescue mission completed, Campbell and Godfrey already are on their way back to Saskatoon.

They reached The Pas at 10 o'clock this morning. The remainder of the return flight probably will be made this afternoon or tomorrow. Seed Plant Leased The Saskatoon plant of the Saskatchewan Registered Grain Growers Association has been leased by the Gillespie Grain Company of Edmonton, according to information received today from Neil Stewart, of Dunblane, president of the former body. He understood that it would be used for storing Alberta oats to be sold in this province. FLYING FRAGMENTS CAUSE ACCIDENTS 448 Instances of People Being Injured Listed by Board During 1931 During 1931, the figures for which are now available, the chief cause of the accidents with which the workmens compensation board in Saskatchewan was called upon to deal is listed as injuries received from "flying fragments.

During that year there were 448 accidents of that nature. "Falls of persons came next with 199 cases, while "automobiles and power vehicles are given as the cause of 79 casualties. During that year there were 3,969 accidents reported, which included 14 deaths, and 98 permanent disabilities. During the period that the board has been in operation October has always proven to be the heaviest accident month of tfce year. Revenue of Water Department Lower Revenue of the city water works department for 1932 amounted to $217,080.06, which was a decrease of $1,648 as compared to the takings for the previous year.

The decrease was occasioned largely by a reduction In the amounts of water required by the railways here. Net surplus of the water works department in 1931 totalled approximately (40,000. Final figures for 1932 have not been compiled, but it is understood that the surplus will show no large decline. POLICE UNLIKELY TO HAVEYOUR PEN Station House Deluged With Inquiries After Two-Line Item Saturday Fountain pens seem to be lost more frequently than any other article, not excepting keys. On Saturday there was a two-line notice in The Star-Phoenix that a pen had been reported found to city police.

Every second cAll on the police telephone since then has been from persons who have lost pens and the loser was found this forenoon. But the calls still were coming in at noon. Another note, in the next column to the fountain pen notice, told of a fancy, home-made garbage can which was stolen from the back yard of Albert Pike, tinsmith. The unknown thief returned the can later the same day. Over the week-end, there was an epidemic of finding and losing.

Among the found: Key case containing four keys; a woman's green cloth coat trimmed with black fur; a man's brown glove; a dark brown fur collar. Four hockey sticks were taken from Roy Fasts garage at 606 Avenue south. MRS.

Saskatchewan's Debt Adjustment Act going to be radically overhauled at the coming session of the legislature. Under tbe terms of the act as it now stands, the debtor has to apply to the debt adjustment commissioner for protection.

When the law makers get through with It the shoe will be on the other foot! The creditor will have to apply to the commissioner for the right to take action to force payment of a debt. That one amendment is going to shift the onus from the debtor to the creditor. And the act is going to be enlarged in scope, amended to apply to more creditor daoaeo than it does now. Loot session it was amended to include retail merchants and farmers who were not actually living on their farms. An amendment planned for this session may bring in hotel men and several other classes who could not come under the protection of the act previously.

Interpreting the findings at the general council of the United Church of Canada respecting marriage, family limitation and divorce and adding his own views as to their appi'eat on to conditions in Saskatchewan, Kev. Clarence llailida, in his evening sermon at Wcntniiiihtcr Church Sunday, advocated civil marriage in tiita province, birth control clinics for the free education of the poor, and amendment of the Canadian Criminal Code to remove any doubt as to the legality of dissemination of birth control information. ATTITUDE CHANGED Mr. Halliday, who took as his text St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 13, verse 8' Love never faileth, dealt mainly with the religious aspect of the matters he discussed.

Jesus, he said, had been deeply interested in the individual and it was His principle that no institutions should be superior to the individual. The minister remarked that one of these PAYS 24-YEAR-OLD DEBT TO HOSPITAL But Man Who Sent $110 Cheque to Settle $61 Account Now Wants It Back Incurred 24 years ago, a debt to the city hospital amounting to (49 has been paid with Interest to date, totalling $101. An unsolicited cheque for (110 was received with thanks, and city officials expressed the hope that others would follow the good example. Years ago this particular account was with many others classified as uncollectable, and was presumably written off. Hospital authorities were pleasantly surprised when the cheque was received.

But their surprise was even greater when some days later the man In question wrote the hospital another letter asking for a return of the money. The second letter stated that he, the sender, was "bughouse," when he sent the money and would the hospital send It hark? The cheque was cashed and the aerount has been written off its paid. The city has not returned the money. PLAN YEARS WORK AT ST.GE0RGE$ Reports at Annual Meeting Reflect Loyalty of Members And Officers Plans for activities for 1933 were discussed at the annual meeting of members of St. Georges Church Reports submitted by officers of the different activities within the church demonstrated the loyalty of members to their church and officers.

BOYS ARE GIVEN CNE MORE CHANCE Quartet of Teen-age Thieves Let Out on Bonds Given By Parents Given another chance in the hope that they are not yet incorrigible, four 'teen-aged thieves were extended suspended sentence in city police court this morning by Magistrate F. Brown. All four were graduates from juvenile court.

Charegd with thefts, mainly of gasoline, the boys in court today were: Danny Setmens. 512 Avenue south; Russell Mclnnes. 419 Avenue south; Robert Blanchard, 707 Avenue south, and George Graham, 721 Avenue soutn. All are 16 or 17 eais of age. and all of them admitted the thefts.

He w. ill woik on an uncle's farm in the countrv Thin End of Wedge Seen in Show by Service Club SABBATH FUNERALS ALSO FROWNED ON COMMERCIALIZATION OF SEVENTH DAY FEARED BY CLERGYMEN Fear that the showing of educational films on Sunday was the thin end of the wedge for theatrical com mercializing of Sunday, the Saskatoon Ministerial Asso ciation this morning passed a resolution conveying its regret to the Kiwanis Club that that organization should exhibit a film next Sunday showing the organizations work for under privileged children.

At the same time, the association, in the same resolution, commended the work of Kiwanis clubs along the lines mentioned. TO TRY SUASION Sunday observance was quite general topic, the holding of funerals on that day, not an uncommon topic at clerical meetings, coming in for condemnation. No resolution was passed on this, the matter being held over for further discussion. Meantime, at the suggestion of Rev. E.

A. Chester, members of the association will attempt moral suasion where possible. It was Rev. J. A.

Strachan of the First Baptist Church who first raised objections to the Sunday showing of the film, declaring that it was the thin end of the wedge, and that the Kiwanis Club, an excellent organization, was unconsciously being made the victim of Hollywood propaganda. WOULD CHANGE HOUR Rev. J. W. Pratt, of St.

Thotnas-Wesley, a member of Kiwanis, explained that the club was showing the film, which came from the United States, in order to reach a representative group of citizens or) Sunday. He felt that there could be a come-back that films were shown in churches on Sundays. In this he was supported by Rev. J. A Donnell, of St.

Thomas-Wesley, the two clergymen moving an amendment suggesting that the show be given at four o'clock instead of three, so as not to interfere with Sunday school hour. Rev. J. A. MacKcnzie, of Knox Church, emphatically supported Mr.

Strachan, remarking that it was strange that so many of these events were being held on Sunday. The question of Sunday funerals was raised by Rev. W. G. Brown, of St.

who objected to them largely owing to the fact that about a dozen people had to work on Sunday for a funeral. One local establishment, he said, had held three funerals on one Sunday, and he felt sure that the undertakers themselves disliked having to conduct them. DONNELL DISAGREES Mr. MacKenzie agreed with the principle voiced by Mr. Brown, adding that the Sunday funeral was a matter of human psychology, arising from a wish to have a lai ge number attend.

Mr. Donnell He felt that a Sunday funeral was a great opportunity for delivering a Christian message to a large number of people. There was also a lengthy and what might be termed technical discussion on the forthcoming visit to Saskatoon of the Oxford Group, several of those present voicing the opinion that great caution should be used in advocating evangelistic movements, whirh had their subsequent reactions. hull rates for next year are not yet announced, but Lloyd's committee should be holding meetings soon. Cargo rates particularly on grain are I understand already definitely quoted on the same basis as last year, afid after ail, last year's experience proves that business can be done on a commercial basis, and there la apparently nothing In the insurance situation to be afraid of.

VESSEL PROMISED As to general cargo, west-bound, we have definitely arranged with Messrs. Dalgleish that they will place one of their steamers on the berth loading at Newcastle and Antwerp about the middle of July next, accepting general cargo to Churchill and we are quoting the same rates from those ports to Churchill as obtain from those ports to Montreal. With the lower inland rail charge there will be a distinct saving in the through cost to importers in practically the whole of Saskatchewan and the northern parts of Manitoba and Alberta. We hope that business conditions will warrant a substantial amount of general cargo offering for this vessel. Other vessels will certainly follow if business look forward to trip to the west in the near future, but as you know the distance great and the expense is heavy.

Our western friends, however, may rely that we are actively wot king and that Churchill will do a lot moie business in 1933 than it did tn 1932. Dated Jan. IQ. W. H.

He stayed overnight and today flew out to Mile 137 on the Hudson Bay Railway, from where he flashed the news of the airmans safety to the Canadian Press correspondent at The Pas. Air Engineer Bruce Yasinsky, who accompanied the Airways Company chief, repaired the Home-Hay plane and the pilot will return to civilization tomorrow.
