PART ONE s Canada Sees Power Politics Behind U. S. Seaway Proposal THE DETROIT FREE PRESS-SUNDAY, JUNE M, 193 8 Ottawa Places Shipping First Suspects Hull Is Using Trade Pact as Bait Special to the Free Fre OTTAWA, June 11 Initial Canadian coldness to the Roose velt Administration's new St Lawrence waterway proposals explains the statement made to Parliament by the Right Hon. Ernest Lapointe, acting prime minister, to the effect that legislation approving them is "wholly unlikely" this year. Rightly or wrongly, Parliament Hill has the idea that Washington is trying "squeeze play," and is attempting to drive through a St. Lawrence bargain favorable to itself as the price of the new trade deal so strongly desired by Canada that Parliament has been kept in session for the last month, simply marking time, to be ready to give instant ratification. Kee Power Politics In Plan The view is held in government rlrcles, after careful perusal of the St. Lawrence proposals, that they simply constitute an invitation to the Dominion to co-operate In a crusade of power politics designed to restore the waning prestige of the Roosevelt Administration, smash the wealthy so-called New York "power ling," and make electrical energy from the St. Lawrence available to United States consumers at a cost rf $ per horsepower. Canadian government officials nr unable to see that the proposal offers any commensurate benefits or Canada as a whole. As Ottawa sees the proposals v.hich Secretary of State Cordell Hull has transmitted, they are concerned primarily with the development, of power from the St. Lawrence, and are largely Indifferent to the navigation phase, of the poject. Would Postpone Navigation The suggestion is that, while construction of the power works in the international section of the river should start immediately, the navigation works should not be started until six years later, or should even be deferred until 1949. There is no time limit specified within which they must be finished. There are two major reasons why it will be extremely difficult to induce Canada to co-operate in a St. Lawrence development which has power as its. main objective rather than navigation. The first is the fact that Canada has no immediate need for St. Lawrence power. Industrial activity will have to expand materially in, Quebec and Ontario before it absorbs the power resources already developed. Furthermore, existing sources of power in Ontario and Quebec are yielding electrical energy at a generally prevailing figure of from $12 to $15 per horsepower. Cost Differential Is Vital Consequently, with a view to maintaining the competitive position of Canadian Industry, the provinces of Quebec and Ontario argue that it would be folly to assist in creating $8 power on the south side of the. St. Lawrence, while $12 to $15 power prevails on the north side. Such a situation, It is contended, would act against the establish- Right Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, by Mor.nrl Budapest String Quartet, with Benny Goodman (Victor Album M-452). This is a most unusual addition to the repertoire of recorded chamber music. Do not for a moment ihink that, it' is a "stunt recording." The engagement of Goodman, hero of a million swing fans, to play with such an austere organization as the Budapest Quartet would appear at first glance to be incongruous. Yet, although swing fans and lovers of serious music never may have thought of it, Goodman is by no mean, unfamiliar with classics. If he were, he could not be the great virtuoso of the clarinet tlmt he is. We understand that he was accepted by the Budapest. Quartet as an equal and a respected musi- Nciv Dance RECORDS Out Monday!

Wheat growers of the Canadian West are prepared to support St. Lawrence development on only one condition; namely, mat it promise cheaper transportation of their wheat to the markets of Europe. No backing could be secured from the Western provinces for a St. Lawrence project which envisaged wholly or mainly a, power development. Opposition Is Expected The Hull proposals will be discussed by the Federal Government with the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, which are directly concerned. Both provinces, however, are so committed to higher-priced power that it is generally expected that they will resolutely oppose any action being taken. The Hull proposals oilerect certain specific inducements to Premier Mitchell V. Hepburn of Ontario to take a favorable view, notably the right of exporting surplus Ontario power to the United States. Hepburn, however, has characterized the concession as "a joke," contending that once St. Lawrence power was developed in New York State at $8 per horsepower, there was no chance of Ontario selling higher cost power In that market. The Ontario and Quebec opposi tion is so determined that it. is considered doubtful whether the Federal Government could overcome it even if the Roosevelt Administration were to agree to give Canada the enlarged trade treaty which the Dominion wants as measure of quid pro quo. on the Records By Rudolph Nelson 1 cal comrade, which is as it should be. As for the composition, It is one of the most charming of all Mozart's works for small ensembles; a work which is built of an almost endless chain of melodies lovely, tuneful, romantic, gay and colorful. The album reveals the extraordinary fidelity afforded by present-day recording, which makes possible the opportunity to analyze Goodman's contribution carefully. Goodman handles the technical difficulties of his part, which are tremendous, with the greatest ease. That which impresses most is his marvelous tone. It almost goes without saying that the work of the Budapest Quartet is flawless. You may have gathered by now that we are very enthusiastic about this recording, which is putting it mildly. We recommend this set don't miss hearing it, even though you may I never have had the slightest in terest in this type of music.

Mrs, Pahorski was represented in court by Hazen Kunz, chief assistant friend of the court, who was eloquent in describing the evils that had befallen the pet, which dropped to a new low last week by snapping at beer-garden patrons. The dog has been in custody of Mrs. Pahorski's husband Bohumil, of 245 Highland Ave., Highland Park, since divorce proceedings were started last month.

"But all Melvindale seems to think it was and there are some queer angles in the case that deserve fuller checking. "We either are going to prove the gossip is true or end all this talk by finding what did happen to the three." The trio first left the cafe about 1 a. m. on Oct. 15 after having had a number of drinks. Mrs. Reddon was driving Lorimer's car. They returned to the front of the cafe about 3 a- nr., spoke briefly with two policemen on duty and drove off again. Where they were in the two-hour interval remains a mystery. Chief Pitt's Theory The reputations of all three, as well as the fact that the women were much older than Lorimer, discourages the theory that Lorimer may have run off with either of them. Pitt said. He believes that the car accidentally ran into a river or a water-filled quarry. Likely spots in the Detroit or Rouge Rivers, as well as nearby quarries, have been dragged without success. Mabie, King and several other men left for a week-end deer-hunting trip in the Houghton Lake district on the evening of Oct. 14. Mrs. Reddon, who was separated from her husband James, was spending the night with Mrs. Mabie. Police throughout the country have pictures and descriptions of the three and of the car. License departments in every state have the motor number of the car, but no lead ever has materialized. Reasons for Doubt "I can't hold the voluntary-disappearance theory," said Pitt. "One person might do it, or even two but for three people to meet and suddenly decide to vanish? And hide the car, too? They couldn't succeed In It. Somewhere there would be a trace." None of the three had much rnoney or any extra clothes, Pitt said. By tracing their movements in the evening before they went to the cafe police became certain of one important fact: To vanish that night was not in the mind of any one of the three when the two women and the young man met by pure chance in the beer garden.

P.:vcr Ave, Crca'hy John and Anne Expect to Live in Simple Style Srrtl to Fit Preti and Cbirua TrlbUM N AH ANT, Mass., June 11 When John Roosevelt and his bride-to-be, Anne Lindsay Clark, set up housekeeping near Boston next autumn they expect to live on whatever sum the bridegroom earns by the sweat of his brow as a neophyte in the advertising business. A small apartment In Brookline, Mass., and a maid-of-all-work who will "live out" is the modest menage which the President and Mrs. Roosevelt's youngest son and his heiress bride will maintain. This and other assorted fact were gleaned by 50 reporters who spent this morning interviewing John and his pretty fiancee, who are to be married here next Saturday. The couple declined to reveal when they would sail for Europe on their honeymoon. They denied reports published yesterday that they planned to go to Bermuda. They refused also to say whether they expected to carry on the Roosevelt tradition of large families. And they wouldn't discuss the bridegroom's gift to his bride, or vice versa. But the press learned that: Anne isn't domestic and doesn't know how to cook. Neither is the least concerned over the word "obey" in the marriage service. ("We'll stick to whatever's in the Book," said John, decisively.) It hasn't "yet been decided" definitely where John will work, but he has a job in prospect. Tho members of the Cabinet have sent the bride a handsome nest of sterling silver platters. The bride's wedding gown will be of sheerest white organdie embroidered in narrow white ribbons. It will have a very full skirt, a long tram, a close-fitting bodice with short sleeves and a square neckline. The wedding veil is, of tulle, with a simple cap arrangement and orange blossoms. Hearings Are Set on Labor Statute A subcommittee of the Legislative Council announced Saturday that it would open hearings in Detroit Tuesday to guide Its recommendations for enactment of a labor relations law by the 1839 Legislature. The 1937 Legislature balked at Gov. Murphy's proposals for a law to set up machinery for averting or settling strikes, gave him a bill of Its own that Murphy vetoed, and then, in special session, refused to enact any labor relations law. Rep. George A. Schroeder, Detroit Democrat, speaker of the House and chairman of the council, said the committee would hold its first meeting at the Fort Shelby Hotel at 10 a. m. Tuesday. Spokesmen for employers and employees will be invited to testify. It will hold subsequent hearings in Flint, Saginaw, Jackson, Grand Rapids and other industrial centers. 1 t - I J I f 0"- i I V CHARLES F-.

One was reported to be a woman demonstrator. The Incident wa expected to increase the Berlin cries of "Czech sadism!" Among the blasts in the German press was the declaration of the Boersen Zeitung that "every blow in the face of a Sudeten German is also a blow In the face of the 76,000,000 Germans in the Reich of Adolf Hitler. It is a blow in the face of a great, proud nation." In Prague an appeal signed by approximately 100 Czech and Slovak organizations was issued for voluntary contributions to a $35,000,000 defense fund. The Sudeten German party refused to associate itself with the appeal. Indications grew in London that the British Government was not planning any decisive step to halt the almost daily series of Spanish Insurgent raids on British ships carrying food and other supplies to Spanish Government ports. Prime Minister Chamberlain and Viscount Halifax, foreign secretary, were expected to return to London tomorrow to prepare for a Cabinet meeting Monday and the reopening of a turbulent Parliament Tuesday.

A communique announced that the guarantor committee had received a letter stating that the Berlin Government considered itself "under no legal obligation" to assume the debts. Austria was annexed by Germany March 13. Britain. France. Czechoslovakia, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and The Netherlands are the guarantor nations. Previously the British and French protested to Berlin against nonpayment of monthly interest installments due June 1. The United States, although not a guarantor, was interested because a large part of the loan was issued in the form of dollar bonds in the United States.

French-Turkish Pact PARI S France laid piani Saturday for a military alliaivs with Turkey to gain a dominant position in the Eastern Meditcrr.v nean in case of war. Turkey has agreed to open negotiations for settlement of ths long-standing difficulties over the Sanjak (district) of Alexandretta, a part of France's mandate in Syria where election disorders he-tween Turks and Arabs resulted in martial law. The French hoped that an agree-ment would clear the way for military pact which would have two purposes: 1 Assurance that Turkey would not interrupt sea lanes between France snd her Russian ally by use of her fortifications of" the Dardanelles. 2 Protection of the Gulf of Alexandretta one of the greatest harbors in the world. Since the convention signed at Montreux, Switzerland. July 20 1936, gave Turkey the right to fortify the Dardanelles Straits. France has needed a military alliance with Turkey to supplement her alliance with Russia. Albocacer Lost by Government, Franco Claims HENDAYE. France, June 11-(A.P.) Spanish insurgents asserted tonight that they had cracked the main outer defenses of Valencia by piercing the fortified town of Albocacer in Eastern Spain. A Zaragoza dispatch announced the fall of Albocacer, 27 miles north of Castellon de la Plana and 67 miles from Valencia. The Government reported, however, that its forces were clinging to control of this point, which hi0 been the major obstacle to the insurgent drive southward from their corridor to the Mediterranean. Southwest of Albocacer, the insurgents strengthened the spearhead aimed at .Castellon de la Plana. They reported that one force swung around Monte Negro tn within approximately three mile? of the Castellon provincial capita! while farther west the insurgents encircled Lucena del Cid, 16 miles northwest of Castellon. Government airmen on patroi over the heavily bombed eastern seaboard reported tonight that they hail beaten off six air raid." attempted over Alicante In 21 hours.
