Council Postpones Action On License Rate Changes City Councils standing committee Thursday night (temporarily) pigeon-holed recommendations proposing numerous increases and other changes in the citys business and general licensing schedules. TWO WEEKS HOIST ' The committee postponed consideration of the proposed amendments for two weeks and instructed Commissioner Harold Balfour to prepare comparative charts showing old and proposed rates, and the business and general license schedules in effect in other Saskatchewart cities. Concerning general licenses the administration recommended that fees be increased for many commercial enterprises, such as movie theatres, barber shops and beauticians' establishments, junk and second-hand dealers and foot peddlers and hawkers. Regarding business licenses, increased assessment rates were proposed for concerns like public eating places, butcher shops, service stations and auto-suppliers, retail drug stores, implement agencies, many types of stores and business and , professional offices.

She is seen here with Herdsman Jack 'Hill, who handled her throughout the time on which the record is based. Two-year-old heifer, Tranquil-le Canary Vale Fleta, recenely established a record in the junior two-year-old milk class with a production of 18,084 pounds of milk and 692 pounds of fat. The test was made on a 305-day basis with milkings twice a day. On the same basis the previous record for milk production was made in 1940 by an Ontario Holstein .which produced 16,-442 pounds. The fat record was established by an American Guernsey at 652 pounds. Canary also ' holds the world championship for the Holstein breed, previously belonging to a second Ontario Holstein with a milk production of 14,836 pounds and a fat record of 623 pounds. The ' Saskatchewan heifer , received the same feed and treatment as the rest of the university herd, with roughage composed mainly of lowland marsh Counterfeit Turned in At City Hall Another counterfeit $10 bill turned up in Saskatoon today this time at the City Hall, the cashier spotted the bill when counting Thursdays cash taken. Local police authorities confirmed Mr. Fuse-dales suspicions and the administration Is out $10 as a result. The fourth counterfeit to be reported here in the last two weeks, the bad bill discovered at the City Hall was almost a dead-ringer for the genuine article. Unlike the three counterfeits appearing in Saskatoon earlier this .bill had been folded and crumpled. Town Council Will Pay Off $6 Debt Sutherlands Towrn Council decided Thursday night that it would wipe out a debt which had been on their books since 1938. The councillors voted un animously that the sum of $6.06 be paid to the provincial treasury department to wipe off said debt.' The money owed by Sutherland was the balance due on a 1938 seed grain account for some $44. Apparently only $38 had been paid to the treasury.

On his arrival, he built a small house and a barn just north of the site of the Birks building, on Third Avenue, next door to the home of Fred Engen of the Saskatoon Land Company, who in early days was the first' man to conduct mechanized farming on a large scale.' , In these early years he took lengthy recommendations In the commissioners report, the aldermen voiced sentiments like the fdllowing: I dont un derstand it whose idea was thit Im not in a position to discuss it" Where are we at, anyway? and so on. Mr. Balfour was barraged with queries relating to the basis of the rates and the maintenance of equitable .treatment between different businesses. The commissioner stressed that the recommendations were being made so that Saskatoons licensing structure could be brought up to date, pie pointed out that both the existing rates and those proposed were considerably below those in effect in other Saskatchewan cities. As an example, he took the case of a large department store here. Under present rates, the the store paid $8,500 annually in business license feesp based on floor space.

Premier T. C. Douglas said in Saskatoon, Thursday, At a banquet given by the government of Saskatchewan for the Co-operative Farming Conference now in progress, Mr. Douglas made his maiden speech as minister of co-operation. He 'outlined the relative spheres of public ownership, cooperatives and private ownership, and insisted that all three could exist were existing in a democracy. It is a question of where the emphasis should be placed, he said. To me the answer is quite simple. Any large economic activity any industry where there is a chance that many people might be exploited by a few, should be owned by the people or operated as a co-operative, he declared. The three main functions of any government should be to give opportunity to all three forms of ownership, he said. No one should be allowed to drive a wedge between thoseContinued on Page 6,' Column 4 I SEE Workmen were busy this morning cutting away old vines that cover the front outside wall of the city hall.

When one fails, the other fails, he declared They are dependent h upon one another", ' Mr.. Douglas declared that there was no inevitability about progress. Noting that history was the story of mans continual adaptation, he said: If we do not adapt ourselves to our changing environment we will perish. He reviewed the capitalistic system, culminating in the In dustrial Revolution and evolving out of the matriarchal, patriarchal, agrarian and fuedai societies. Before the revolution and the advent of the present capitalistic system, there could riot be enough produced to fill the needs of all men, he said. "These days 'people are saying harsh things about the capitalistic system, he continued. Let me say something good about it. It has solved a far greater problem than any we face today ' DOUGLAS Reported to be, gravely ill, Paul Prince, M.L.A. of North Battleford, was being brought to a local hospital today by air ambulance. It is understood he may have to undergo a serious operation.

Music at the St.' Andrews Day celebration was supplied By the St.- Andrew Society chorus and not by St. An-' drews Church choir. ' Finance Minister Abbotts statement at Ottawa Thursday that wages are 90 per cent higher than prewar caused a few eyebrow liftings here today. Maybe Abbott is getting 90 per cent more, but its -sure thing office workers in Saskatoon are nowhere near that figure, a Coffee Row cynic observed Loan Repayments Prosperity of Agriculture General economic condition of the agricultural industry was reflected in the fact that approximately 96 per cent of all first mortgage borrowers from the Canadian Farm Loan Board had no interest arrears r.t the end of March this year, the annual report of the board disclosed. And today in Regina. R. S. Rideout, Saskatchewan manager, said that farmers in this province were right in line with the general picture. We have very few arrears and have had only four closures in the last 12 years.' he said. Collections this fail, he told the Star-Phoenix by tele phone, were very satisfactory, even from the drouth area. It was evident, he believed, that farmers had some reserves or payments could not have been made in many sections from this years crop. The board in its report noted that there was a definite trend to larger farms an'd'that more than one-third of money being loaned was for the purchase of more land- A substantial portions of loans was also being utilized to purchase livestock and implements and to make farm improvements.

Throughout Canada, interest arrears at March 31 this year equalled only 0.217 per cent of principal outstanding, the lowest percentage of interest arrears to principal in the boards history.

C. Hayden draft a bylaw proclaiming Dec. 27 a holiday in Sutherland. The bylaw was scheduled for final approval at the Dec. 15 meeting of the council. The pros and cons of such a move were discussed by .all members of the council especially Mayor F, J. Spark, with the effect on the townspeople and merchants debated fully before Mr. Hayden was authorized to draft the bylaw. - , The 12 oclock bus, for which the Sutherland council has been campaigning so strenuously in the past months, once again came into the spotlight. A letter from the Saskatoon Transit System informed the council that as soon as the winter schedule was put into operation a bus would be leaving Saskatoon at 12.10 oclock midnight It also said that for the first month of operation a passenger count would be held to see if the Sutherland traffic warranted the additional service. All of this brought violent outbursts from the councillors ' as they had considered the matter closed, when a few week-s ago they were informed that this service iad already been scheduled to proceed almost immediately: However, the councillors decided to leave th? matter in the hands. of the Saskatoon Transit System for the time being -a nil see what came of the traffic count.
