Cities Have Zoning Bylaws; None Tax the Non- Resident Worker Whig- Standard Sends tionaire Important Ontario Cities--Six Answers Received. In an effort to get information for Kingston citizens 4 on three questions which have received some public attention here recently, The WhigStandard sent out a questionnaire to a number of Ontario cities. Six replies have been received up to date and this newspaper is passing on the information gained so that ratepayers will be acquainted with conditions prevailing elsewhere in the province. The questions asked dealt with a zoning bylaw, a fee for transient workers, and the Humane Society. The answers in each case were secured from a very reliable source.

The results obtained indicate that two cities, Kitchener and London, have zoning by-laws, that none of the six cities has any fee for transient workers than the poll tax or the Transient Traders Bylaw and that five of the six have Humane Societies. 'The detalled answers are as follows: Brantford you a zoning bylaw?

Is its condition strong or weak, and does it retain the services of 8 full-time inspector? Hamilton Humane Society is a very strong organization and has been so for many years. In addition there is the Junior Humane Society with between 8,000 and 9,000 school children enrolled. A recent tag day, one of those staged every few years, netted $1,800. Gross annual income is about $1,200.

For the past year and a half the society has had a full-time Inspector. St. Catharines -Have you a zoning bylaw? What are its general provisions? at present.

This Society does the dogcatching for the city and the inspector receives $1,300 for this work, in addition to an annual amount from the Society. A new dog-pound costing $3,000 is at present being erected. The Society cares for all cruelty cases in St. Catharines and throughout Lincoln County.

Lose Official Record Due to Technicalities The Federation Aeronautique Internationale is reported to have refused recognition of the refueling endurance mark established by Forrest O'Brine and Dale "Red" Jackson. It will be remembered Jackson took part in the Kingston Flying Club air meet here last year. Jackson and O'Brine remained aloft for 647 hours and 22 minutes at St. Louis.

Officials of the National Aeronautic Association and members of the F.A.I. say that the record is still held by the Hunter Brothers at 553 hours and 41 minutes. Numerous irregularities in the flight were said to have been responsible for the stand taken by the association. They are understood to be in part as follows: Reports of the flight were not signed by an official federation timer. The reports also were not complete.

The barograph used was not sealed and the fliers did not use a smoke chart as is required by the federation. Officials explained that while these irregularities were only technicalities they were sufficient to result in refusal to grant recognition. Red Indians Juveniles Won From the Ponies Another close and exciting game was played in the Spalding League last night when Red Indians took a win from Ponies by 9 to 8. It was 8 good game to win and a tough one to lose. The playing was fast with both pitchers getting good support, and it was not till the last that the final winning run was pushed across for the win.

Last night's game saw a case of nerve and foolhardiness. Benstead, catching for Red Indians, started the game with a broken thumb, which was improperly bandaged and during the game he had two fingers put out of joint yet he remained in the game till the last two innings were yet to be played.

Norris novel, one of the most discussed writings of our day, emerges on the talking screen as a first rate and distinguished production.

It follows none of the formulas of present day pictures. It is not sersational and yet it presents in clear cut, carefully defined dramatic terms a provocative theme on marriage that is worthy of your attention. Charles Norris will certainly be glad to know that the lesson embodied in his book is presented so forcefully and with such delicacy. In "Seed," a writer of great promise marries early, quickly has five children, finds himself tied down by family responsibilities, and is forced NEURALGIA? Sciatica? Rheumatism?

ENGLISH STAGE PLAYERS MEET AGAIN IN FILMS Accidental meetings which renew old friendships are constant occurrences in both real life and in drama. A pleasant example occurred during the filming of "Always Fox romantic drama coming to the Tivoli Theatre Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, when Paul Cavanagh renewed his acquaintance with Elissa Landi who is starred in the picture, Their first meeting was in London when Miss Landl was playing the stage production of "The Constant Nymph," and Cavanagh was with the original stage company of "Scotland Yard." "I remarked at that time," Cavanagh said, following their Hollywood meeting, "that Miss Landi was an emotional star who would go far in her profession. Her recent success in "Body And Soul" and now her exquisite work in "Always Goodbye," seems to bear me out." Cavanagh has a featured role In "Always Goodbye," 88 has Lewis Stone.
