Whim P Story of Pitched Battle Among City Youths Described Chief Donald Summons Parents and Boys to His Office to Discuss Situation; One Lad Fired Six Shots, Scored Two Hits Tales of neighborhood "battles" being fought by opposite factions of boys armed with BB guns, air rifles and sling shots, were heard In the police station Saturday afternoon when' Chief Donald discussed safety measures with 17 teen age lads, and their parents. There were mpre than 30 persons present. HAD RECEIVED MANY COMPLAINTS The meeting was the result of many complaints received during the past few months, wherein the police were Informed that the discharging of firearms In the city and along the city limits had become a meaace to the public. Although police had been actively engaged In investigations tor months, the climax came with a pitched battle at the residence of Patrick Meagher, 1007 Colony Street, early in September, ana inquiries into the schoolboy "battle" have been continuing since that time. . NOT COURT SESSION Opposing armies of boys planned' to have a "battle" at a rock pile, but the plan of campaign was not carefully worked out, and the "troops gathered at Mr. Meagher's house while he was away. Some were inside the dwelling and some were outside when the shooting took place Owing to the number of persons present, it was found more convenient to have the discussion of the matter in the courtroom, rather thin In Thief Donald's office. A. S. Wright, secretary of the Children's Aid was present. In his opening remarks Chief Donald advised the parents and the children that they were not present in court; that no charges had been laid, and that there was no stigma attached to tneir presence in un courtroom. He added that the larger room had been used because It offered seating for those In attendance. CAB WAS HIT Chief Donald then reviewed events of the Spring, Summer and Fall in Saskatoon. He told the audience that many complaints of shooting In the city had been received. Householders had told of narrow escapes from Injuries. Windows had been shattered with attendant worries and expense. Several boys had actually been shot. One had spent some time in the hospital. One lad, present at the meeting, had been hit on the head by a pellet. The chief also stated that a woman had suffered splintered glass Bridegroom Dodges Camera Try to Finish Gravel Work Heavy Machinery Taken for Completion of 16 Miles on Jasper Highway Tn an effort to comnlete travelling 16 miles on the Jasper Highway west of Battleford, where grading was done during the Summer, M. Mc-Auley, contractor, has moved heavy machinery from Sovereign tp the scene of operations. The work will be continued and finished, if possible before the snow falls. The contractor has just finished the work of gravelling the 17 miles between Rosetown and Elrose thereby making Highway No. 4 a com- pletely gravelled highway between Swift Current and Bigger. More than 100 men were employed and they ran two eight-hour shifts a day. The class of gravel used was of the heat and the nit. five miles south east of Hughton contained an unlimited quantity. Instead of the usual 800 yards to the mile a generous 1,160 yards was put on, the hauling being done in a large number of trucks ranging from H4 vards to eteht yards in capacity. This contracV begun In September, has been completed In record time, work continuing uninterruptedly with excellent weather conditions prevailing. Technical School Classes Listed when a bullet struck the car she was driving. The chief pointed out that the case had nothing to ao with the boys who were present, but he said he wished to show the dan ger of using fire-arms. CRIMINAL OFFENSE Continuing, the officer stressed his words, made public recently, that ammunition has changed greatly in the past lew years, rie aeciarea that the modern ammunition is hitrh-Dowered and has greater carry ing powers. He said that .22 bullets and BB shots are a danger to life. t Mention was made too of the criminal code which provides pen alties for firing rifles or air guns in the city; and penalties may also be imposed where sale or gift Is made to minors under 12 years, with cer tain exceptions. EMPHASIZE DANGER Chief Donald then threw the meet ing open to discussion, and gave parents and children the opportunity or discussing tne matter. One parent said that so far as she could learn, the ring-leader, and or ganizer of the "battle" was not nresent. Chief Donald replied that extensive inquiries over a period of weeks had been difficult, and that the duty of the police in making complete inquiries would be carried out. Another parent thanked Chief Donald for calling the meeting. and expressed appreciation for his statement in the press of a few day ago calling attention to the danger of the use of fire-arms. The parent offered the opinion that there should be more publicity to bring to citizens the realization that the use of fire-arms was a constant danger, and that the firearms should be scrapped. NORMAL SITUATION Asked what started the "neigh borhood wars," one woman said that war was in the air; that the news in the papers and over the radio was filled with battles and strife, and that children had come to look upon war aa a "normal" situation. ... In his closing remarks, Chief Donald offered three thoughts to those present. The first was that he did not wish them to feel that they were the only ones who had been asked to come to the police station. He said that he realized that the shooting was widespread in and around the city, and in other cities. He added that he had interviewed four persons on the subject just prior to Tne present meeting. Secondly, the chief asked the boys to stop and think how un-hnnnv thev would be. through the rest of their lives, if during one of their so-called "battles" they snot a boy, and that he was maimed for lire, or aiea or a ounei in tne orain. WRITHING IN PAIN The chief referred tn a statement offered voluntarily at the meeting by a little boy, who said that during the "battle" he had fired six shots and hit two boys. Mention was also made of the statement of one parent who told of seeing a child writhing on the street after he had been shot in the calf of the leg. The third point that the chief brought out was that he wanted the boys to talk seriously among themselves about the use Of fire arms, and the dangers. He askea them to try and dissuade their boy friends from using such guns and aiinir shots: and he also reminded them that the police would have to take action if they failed to cooperate and flaunted the law. One of the parents thanked Chief Donald for the help he had given in bringing the seriousness of the matter home to parents, and said that he trusted that such a matter would not occur again to put the force to so much trouble.

When Saskatoon Was Younger Barley buyers from Minnesota have hppn canvassing individual farmers in northeastern Saskatchewan trying to get barley to meet the shortage in the United States, E. K. Brockelbank, extension worker of the University or Saskatchewan, was informed while in that part of the Province. A premium of about 33 cents has been paid above regular barley prices. Mr. Brockelbank was informed that distillers were taking Regal barley freely. Henry Lyons, Lac Vert, who had a crop of i over 50 bushels to the acre of Regal barley, was offered the full malting premium. Fall work is much further ad' vanced than usual in the northeast of the Province, Mr. Brockelbank remarked. "Through the KorKton Canora, Wadena and Tisdale dis tricts summerfallows are wonder fully clean and in good tilth. 1 never saw more surface cultivation done in the Fall," he commented. Much of the stubble has been cul tivated this Fall and in many places shows green growth that will De killed in Winter. expects election in this Province EDMONTON, Oct. 19 Premier William Aber- hart, in his Sunday night address, laid special em- phasis on donations and letters from- Saskatche- wan, which he acknowl- edged, and repeated a rumor that an election would be held in Saslat- chewan within a year. He said: "Our move- ment is growing in Sas- katchewan, and the re- port is circulating there an election is in the of- fing'next year." Appreciation of the Federal program for house repair and modernization, but objection that the interest charges are still out df line with the rate at which money is available to the Government, was voiced by G. R. Bickerton, president of the United Farmers of Canada, in a press statement issued today. ' WORK FOR MA NV ' Mr. Bickerton said: "The Dominion Government house repair and modernizing program will no doubt enable a great number of building craftsmen to again become usefully employed and will also assist many home owners to have much needed repair and modernizing work done to their homes. "While the maximum chergeable interest is 3 '4 per cent, it should be understood bv the urban borrower that, providing the installments are I tuu uii uue units, tits win actually have paid 6.32 per cent for the use of the loan, with further penalties if payments become in arrears. "The devices used to have wage-earners continue to pay the wages of capital are surely varied and many. I note with Interest that farmers can also avail themselves of the plan if they so desire. JL'ST MORE DEBT "But the method of repayment in the case of the farmer is as yet somewhat indefinite. The farm homes of Saskatchewan surely need repairing and modernizing, but with farm debts in this Province already aggregating over $450,000,000, farmers may hesitate before loading themselves with more debt. "I had hoped that a housing scheme embodying a constructive program to replace the slum conditions found in most CaYiadiaa cities, financed by a Central Bank Issue. It appears, however, that the Government concurs In the pol icy of individuals continuing to pay over 6 per cent for credit while the Government can fmd buyers of treasury notes at three-quarters of one per cent ana apparently nave no difficulty in selling bonds at IM per cent. I have no doubt, however, that the Government's announcement will give welcome encouragement to many idle workers, wno win wel come the opportunity to again give useful service to tne community at remunerative employment." katchewan, supplied today some of the ngures arrived at oy neaiing engineers. An ordinary window with sliding SHKh does not lit very tightly in Winter. If it is loose enough to open in Summer when the air is moist, it will be much looser in Winter when the air is dry. The harder the wind blows, the more cold air will come in. Storm sah will keep out some of the cold air. Felt weather strip around the edge of the sash will cut down the draught of air still further.

While modernization of stores, dwellings, farm buildings and all manner of structures has become an International movement during the last few months, the members of the Saskatoon campaign commit tee feel that they were in tne van In the march of progress, nasaa- toon business men started planning their work exactly one year ago. During the Winter they collected ail manner of data on the bringing of buildings up to date, and held a number of meetings to discuss the questions pertaining to improve ments to Duuaings ana grounas. Earlv last Spring the members went Into action with a comprehensive advertising and publicity campaign designed to aid landlords and tenants In making the most of mod ernization methods at tne lowest lost. The committee gathered statis tics on building and construction; on the installation of late model electrical devices; on safety measures for homes; planning gardens, rockeries and pools; insulation ana roofing and other matters. Many persons called at tne onices of lumber dealers, painters, con tractors, electrical engineers, hard ware dealers and other business men connected with the campaign, and secured Information which aided them in beautifying their homes and surroundings. A number of local businessmen and householders undertook to make their dwellings and stores more attractive. The camnaign has been voted a success by members of the committee. It was stated Saturday that the work would continue this Fall. The fact that all signs point to further release of purchasing power in Canada is taken as an omen for good, and that further beautifica-tlon contracts will be made during the coming season. Big Future For flying Alderman Niderost Asks Support of Local Club In Expansion Work "I'm convinced that aviation is due for great development in Western Canada soon, and that . Saskatoon should bend every effort to lead in that development, stated Alderman Carl Niderost, who today recommended that citizens support the Saska toon Flying Club. The club, recently was in corporated under the Benevo lent Societies Act, must have $3,000 by November 1 in order to assure its existence as a public body. GO AFTER SUPPORT Officials, at a recent meeting, appointed C. L. Welch, local accountant, to solicit memberships from companies and Individuals interested in flying, and this week, Mr. Welch will approach several prominent persona here for support for the new club. Alderman Niderost, who Is familiar with the set-up of the new club, recommended It to the pub-. lie. ."Ibelieve-that the -Saskatoon Flying Club is worthy of support from every Individual, and that the club, when firmly established, will do a great deal towards developing Saskatoon as an aviation centre on the Prairies," he said. The flying club is at present negotiating with officials of the Canadian Association of Flying Clubs to hold Its 1937 convention at Saskatoon. Officers, to be selected at the annual meeting on November 27, will be nomlnnted by a cummittee, composed of Tom Sigsworth, F. P. Saunders, H. R. Herbert, F. J. Garrett and W. Bcrnhard. Names other than those proposed by the committee may be submitted to the annual meeting on application of five members of the Saskatoon Flying Club. v A meeting on the night of October 31, at which assets and liabilities of the old Saskatoon Aero Club will be taken over provided sufficient money Is raised, and the Saskatoon Flying Club firmly established as the only club operating at Saskatoon, was decided on by the recent meeting of the new club. cold air would be, for an average window with upper and lower sash, 700 cubic feet per hour, with storm sash added, 525 feet per hour, and with weather strip around the edge of the storm sash, 70 feet per hour. The heat loss from this source in the three cases would be 1,290 British thermal units, 970 B.T.U.'s and 130 B.T U.'s. Through the same window with a wind at 15 miles per hour the heat loss would be 4.030, 2,590 and 420 British thermal units for the three types of protection. The heat loss is about three times as great when the wind is blowing 15 miles per hour as when it is at five miles per hour, and the heat loss is about ten times as great for ordinary sash without storm window as for the same window with the addition of storm sash and felt weatherstrip. The benefit of the weatherstrip is striking. FRESH AIR ESSENTIAL The average wind velocity at Saskatoon is about 9.4 miles per hour, but the days the householder has to prepare for are the days of strong wind. Some fresh air Is of course needed in a house. Fresh air has 20.9 per cent oxygen. The air that has been breathed once is reduced to 15.4 per cent oxygen. When the oxygen content of the air In a room drops to 13 per cent breathing be comes aiiucuit. One farmer remarked to Profes sor Greig that when his neighbors Duut new nouses they sealed them up so well that thev never had good health until the houses de veloped air leaks. Professor Greig noted, however, that the more economical way of letting in fresh air was to let it in where it was needed. One could open the bedroom window and get fresh air without chilling the whole house, he suggested.
