The scene is the Humane Society in Tampa, Fla. Name ex-Soldier and Diplomat Canadian Governor-General MONTREAL — m — One old soldier who didn't fade away is Canada's first governor-general of French extraction, 71-year-old Maj. Gen. George Philias Vanier. His career as soldier, diplomat and attorney encompasses four decades, Vanier's appointment was announced Saturday by Queen Elizabeth as one of the final acts of her 45-day visit to Canada. Although Gen. Vanier advocated disarmament in the League of Nations and saw France fall in 1940, he tried to rouse his fellow French- Canadians to war in 1941 and served as Canada's envoy to Gen. Charles de Gaulle in London and Algiers. He also was Canada's fifth ambassador to France. "I wouldn't do anything differently if I had my years to do again," Vanier has said. French, Irish Born in Montreal, Vanier learned fluent French from his French father and equally excellent English from his Irish mother. He studied law and went to -AP Wlrephoto George Vanier Ottawa to serve as aide-decamp to two governors-general and to man^ a judge's daughter. In Work! War II, Vanier helped organize the famed Royal 22d Regiment that saw long-term duty in the front line trenches. He won numerous decorations for bravery and Catholic Paper Aims Queries at Methodist Office Seekers BOSTON —(/P)— The Pilot, archdiocesan Catholic weekly, published a list of questions Saturday for Methodist candidates for high office to "return the compliment" to Methodist Bishop John Wesley Lord of Boston who earlier posed questions for Catholics who might seek the presidency. In an address earlier in the week Bishop Lord said; "Because of the unique claims that the Roman Catholic church makes for itself, we have the right and duty to ask some questions of a presidential aspirant." He asked: U. S. Balloon Lands in Finland NORTHFIELD, Minn.—(/P)— The State Department reports that a research balloon launched here July 23 has landed in Finland 10 miles from the Russian border. The G. T. Schjeldahl Co. here was notified that the 75-foot plastic bag had come down near the town of Ilomantse. It carried instruments to record and radio to ground stations data on air pressure and temperature within and outside the balloon. Previously pressurized bags launched here have been reported down in Spain and France. On a recent experiment, three balloons of various sizes were launched simultaneously on a flight path to the East Coast. Automatic mechanisms collapsed them over the Atlantic Ocean just east of Boston. BACKWARD READING Chinese is read from top to bottom then, to top of next left column. Free Public Schools "Do you believe that the American free public school institution md system is a bulwark of American democracy, or do you stand for a religiously segregated school system?" Another question was: "Do you stand for the principle of separation of church and state as a principle to be applied for the benefit of all churches and all creeds?" In Saturday's edition of the Pilot, an editorial titled "Sauce for the Goose," said "We think it proper to return the compliment with our questions asked of a Methodist running for public office." Racial Segregation The editorial asked: "In the light of the traditional racla segregation long practiced and still mightily supported in Methodist churches in the United States, can you be relied upon to carry through the Supreme Court decisions recently made on this topic? Can you serve with Negroes In your cabinet, Congress etc?" Another question was: "Methodists . . . have placed on the law books of many sep arate states strict laws depriv Ing other citizens of the right to drink alcoholic beverages as their conscience allows. I elected to national office would you strive to make these laws federal thus forcing your own religious views on all your t fellow citizens??" was wounded twice, the second I time losing his right leg above the knee. Second in Command Vanier was appointed second in command of his old regiment after the war and went to Geneva as a delegate to the preparatory disarmament commission of the League of Nations. His diplomatic career began with an appointment as secretary to Canada's high commis-j| sioner in London in 1931. His appointment eight years later as Canadian envoy to France soon was followed by France's capitulation in 1940. Vanier managed ^to get his wife and children to the Bay of Biscay where he herded them aboard a sardine boat that eventually rendezvoused with a British destroyer which took his family to England. Stumped Province Returning to Canada as wartime commanding officer of the Quebec district, Vanier stumped the province, campaigning against anti-conscription nationalists among French speaking Canadians. Toward the end of the war, he served in the London headquarters of Gen. De Gaulle's French Committee of Liberation and moved with De Gaulle to Algiers in 1944. Twelve days after the liberation of Paris, Vanier reassumed his duties as ambassador to France. He retired in 1953 to take up charitable work in Montreal. Vanier has three sons and a daughter living in Europe. A fourth son is a Trappist monk. bonomieil Savt fu«! n«xl winter OIT READY NOW The Timken Silent Automatio "W«ll-Flam«" Oil Burner hai paid for itaelf in fuel iavings, jn thou.saiida of homeal Own- •ri report up to 26% cut in heating costH.
