New Pastor, Rev. Alex. 

Stein. Welcomed By 


Members and adherents of the 
Congregational-Christian church 
met in the Sunday-school room 
on Friday evening to extend 
a welcome to their new pastor, 
Rev. Alex. B. Stein, and Mrs. 

After a short sing-song. Miss 
Dorothy Cotton, daughter of Rev. 
and Mrs. Henry Cotton of Trinity 
United church, rendered a beau- 
tiful solo. Misses Helen Epwonh 
and Eileen Jackson played a 
lovely piano duet, and Donald 
Cribar gave a cornet solo. 

Rev. Mr. Morton, formerly of 
the Congregational-C h r i s t i a n 
church of Stouffville gave a few 
words of welcome. 

Rev. Henry Cotton, in his 
words of welcome, said "God 
made us one and we must learn 
to live as brothers and ack- 
nowledge One as our father and 
Saviour. The foundations of 
the world are shaking. We. in 
our Christian fellowship, repre- 
sent a world that cannot be 
shaken. The congregation makes 
the minister and we as ministers 

have only one person to please — 
Rev. C. H. Way, president of 
the Christian Endeavor Confer- 
ence, was present to welcome 
Mr. and Mrs. Stein, who are 
Christian Endeavorers. "Never 
before/* he said, "has the Christ- 
ian church had as great an op- 
portunity to spread the gospel as 
they now have. If we believe in 
Him we have a purpose in life to

the master of us all," said Rev. 
J. A Koffend in extending the 
welcome of St. Andrew's Pres- 
byterian church. "The kingdom

Rev. Burton Hill expressed his 
regret at leaving the town and 
not having the opportunity to 
work in fellowship with Mr. 
Stein. The church is needed 
now ax it never was before. We 
must become a living witness for 
the Master." 

Mr. and Mrs. Stein replied 
graciously to the words of wel- 
come. "This town," Mr. Stein 
said, "carries the aggressive 
spirit of a city. It has a great 
spirit of kindliness. We have a 
large task to perform and we can 
fulfil it only by God's grace. 
Without him we are weak. Let

Pastor Regards Movie 
As Harmful To Morals 



"Our fastest plane in the last 
war is comparable to a trainer 
in this war/* Rev. Henry Cotton, 
until recently an R.C.A.F. padre 
and now pastor of Trinity United 
church, told Newmarket Lions 
club on Monday evening. Mr. 
Cotton was in the air force 
during the last war and was 
twice shot down, the second time 
to become a German prisoner. 

H. E. Lambert introduced Mr. 
Cotton. President Frank* Bowser 
was in the chair. 

Mr. Cotton exhibited a wood 
model of one of the "pusher 1 * 
[{that is. with propeller in the 
rear) biplanes of the last war in 
which he did most of his flying, 
lie said that these planes were 
variously known as "old crates," 
"bird-cages ' and "flying pianos." 

"Our maximum speed with 
the Beardmore engine was 75 
m. p. h. near the ground and 
55 rn. p. h. at our ceiling," Mr. 
Cotton said. "This was ten miles 
per hour when we got Rolls- 
Royce engines. 

"These were our best bombers. 
We carried, in addition to our 
machine-gun ammunition, eight 
20-lb. bombs or two 100-lb. 
bombs. Very rarely would a 
bomb do more than destroy 
a room in a house. Today our 
modern bombs, as you know, will

Express: After all that has been 
said, there are many people in 
Newmarket and vicinity who. are 
opposed to "The Birth of a 
Baby" film advertised in your 
paper. We look upon it as a re- 
proach on modesty and a harm- 
ful thing to the morals of our 
rising generation. Our prayers 
for peace will not avail much 
while our morals are low.

(The movie. "The Birth of a

Flight-Sgt. William F. E. Cane, 
son of Sheriff and Mrs, W. H. S. 
Cane of Toronto, formerly of 
Newmarket, was critically 
wounded during the raid on 
Dieppe. When the Luftwaffe 
tried to dislodge landing troops 
Bills plane was hit and a piece 
of shrapnel struck him, entering 
his right lung. A large chunk 
was blown from the right win? 
of the plane. He flew his dam- 
aged Spitfire home to England 
and landed it without crashing. 
After a critical period in hos- 
pital, he is now convalescing.

Mr. Cotton praised both the 
Allied planes of today and the 
modern air crew. 

Telling something of his ex- 
periences in France during the 
last war as an observer, gunner, 
bomber and photographer, Mr. 
Cotton said that at that time 
the Germans had air superiority. 
The Allied planes had a large 
blind spot in the rear underneath 
and there was no way of fighting 
the enemy plane that got under 
your tail. 

Mr. Cotton told of two en- 
counters with the German ace, 
Richthofen, in his red Albatross 
plane. The first time, on the 
German side of the lines without 
an escort plane, Mr. Cotton was 
taking a photograph when the 
German power-dived at the 
British plane. His machine-gun 
fire just missed the pilot and put 
the engine out of commission. 
The pilot made a pancake landing 
on Vimy Ridge on Allied terri- 
tory. Mr. Cotton was unhurt. 

The other time the shoe was 
on the other foot. Richthofen 
was trailing a lone British flier, 
and Mr. Cotton ordered his pilot, 
and accompanying planes, to 
dive on Richthofen. They fright- 
ened him off but didn't hit him. 
When the German ace brought 
down Mr. Cotton's plane it was

It has long bten feared that

on continental U.S.A. and this 
morning the radio announcer

had been dropped in Oregon's

Tests on both sides of the 
Atlantic resulted in the discovery 
that ib solid stream or bucket of 
water is the best way to combat 
incendiary bombs. It exting-

and incendiaries, usually dropped 
in dozens, demand quick action. 
If possible play water on it from 
a safe distance, and if it should 
happen to explode the stream 
from a base will keep molten 

fragments away. 

Earlier it was suggested to use 
a spray or fog, but it takes much 
longer time. When water is con- 
centrated on a bunting incend-

of which may start a fire. 'Hies*'

leasing younger men for the 

front line," L.-Cpl. Jack Granger, 
who is in charge of the Aurora

that veterans of the last war are

him at the start of this war eager 
to offer his services and don the

While many of us are concerned about the 
storms and storm clouds that tear and darken 
the world, it is nice that some people are able 
to keep their perspecth-e. There is a gentleman 
in Toronto, for instance, vcho is interested in pro- 
moting angling. His personal representative 
called on us the other day and told us about his 
angling contest for Ontario fishermen and the 
splendid trophies awarded. We ventured to ask 
the traveller in what business this benevolent 
Mr. Morley K. MacKenzie is engaged. ^He's 
a distiller, but he does this personally." 

Whiie we appreciated Mr. MacKenzie* dis- 
interested interest in fishermen, we thought that 
there were not enough fishermen calling at our 
office to have him leave a pile of his entry forms 
m our counter. We might have sent him across 
the street to the selective service office. We do 
hope that he puts on his distillate the advice he 
puts on his anglers' entry form;: "Keep well 
within your limit." 


Tom. Sawyer's method of getting help in white- 
washing a fence, Sam Slick's method of selling 
i clock, or Dale Carnegie's rules for winning 
friends and influencing people, would work just 
as well in China, Russia, Germany or Britain as 
they do in North America. That is, human 
eature is the same the whole world over. People 
ire much the same. Their behavior does vary 
to some extent as a result of different education, 
national traditions, different experiences, just as 
the New Englanders of today differ from the New 
Englanders who used to hang witches, just as 
the Englishmen of today differ from the English- 
men who used to hang pickpockets, or as the V. S. 
southerners of today who lynch negroes will 
differ from their descendants of 200 years hence. 

The sharpest differences among human beings 
seem to be between those who speak different 
languages and therefore do not understand each 
other. In Europe French and Germans and 
English again and again make war upon each 
other. In Canada French and English misunder- 
stand each other and frequently say things 
which should not be said. 

There seem too to be sharp differences between 
those who have much property, either inherited 
or acquired through their own ability, and those 
who have little property. Here again differences 
are but superficial. At heart, rich man and poor 
man are alike. They ha\-e a different background 
and a different outlook, different interests. In 
times like these^ when racial differences are 
being emphasized, property differences are less- 
ened. Rich and poor rub shoulders in Britain. 

In Canada we have Conservative "laymen** at 
Fort Hope saying: "For us it is an axiom that 
svery person able and willing to work at socially 
useful tasks must be assured of gainful occupa- 
tion with sufficient income to enable him to 
maintain a home and family." The Russian con- 
stitution says: "Citizens of the U. S. S. R. have 
the right to work, that is, are guaranteed the 
right to employment and payment for their work 
in accordance with its quantity and quality." 
Canadian Conservatives and Russian Communists 
are getting pretty close together. Hie former are 
in this instance more radical than the latter. It 
is a far cry from the days when we couldn't 
trade our cattle and oil! 


While we do what we can to promote the war 
against Nazi Germany, short of trying to compel 
others to do what we are not doing ourselves, we 
do not try to fool ourselves into thinking that 
to kill (and we are all associated in any killing 
that is done regardless of what individual 
happens to release the bomb or pull the trigger) 
finds approval in the teachings of Christ. The 
logical person will regard our present war against 
Hitler as a temporary departure from Christianity 
made necessary by other departures we have 
aiado from Christianity. 

At the same time, while we resort to surgery 
to save the world, wc should expect the Christian 
church to keep alive Christian principles so that 
on them wc may build more soundly in the 
future. We should still look to the church for 
the secret of living as happily as possible with 
the un-Christian job we have undertaken, but wo 
should not expect the church to help us do the 
iob. We should look to the church for comfort 
and consolation, and for what approval she can 
give, but not for participation. The church must 
be a padre, not a combatant. 

Taking this viewpoint as to the function of 
the church in war-time, we feel that the general 
council of the United Church of Canada is going 
beyond its province in passing a resolution which 
a council spokesman interprets as favoring over- 
seas conscription. A church council must in 
passing its resolutions always feel the presence of 
the Master who said: "Resist not him that is evil; 
but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right check, 
turn to him the other also." He may have been 
mistaken, but it is not for a church council 
to say so. 


Unreasoned sentiment plays too large a part in 
the decisions of nations. Whether it is a larger 
part than unreasoned sentiment plays in the de- 

cisions of individuals we do not know. We think 
it is. 

. TTse ^second front" — a polite name for a pros- 
pective sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of 
lives— is' urged out of sentimental regard for 
Russia's determined and splendid fight against 
the Germans. Russia deserves no particular 
sympathy. It is the same Russia that made 
unprovoked war on Finland. There is no room 
for sentiment. Russia should have all possible 
help, but only because she is helping to defeat 
Nazi Germany. 

There should not be a second front because 
Premier Hepburn attends a Communist inspired 
meeting in Toronto to "'urge offensive action and 
total war." Advertised with the phrase "Back 
up the men of Dieppe/* the meeting betrays in 
advance its emotional, illogical basis. These 
people attending a meeting in Toronto will not 
be giving their lives on the "second front.'* 
There should be a second front only if the United 
Nations high command decides "in cold blood" 
that a second front will advance the United 
Nations cause. The "second-fronters'' are not 
giving the responsible men a chance to decide 
the question on its merits. 

While military decisions are outside the 
province of the masses, decisions which bear only 
upon our own pocket-books we can make or help 
to make. For instance, there is no reason why 
we should not hold mass meetings to urge that 
Canada give instead of sell $10,000,000 worth of 
flour to Russia. That would not be emotional. 
That would increase our own taxes, not give 
somebody else's life. There is just as much 
reason to give to Russia as to Britain. We are 
giving a billion dollars worth of materials to 
Britain, but- we sell S10 T OO0,OOO worth to Russia. 
We should regard Russian soldiers as our soldiers 
and help to equip and feed them without re- 
muneration. When we enable Russians to fight 
on we well may be saving Canadian lives. 


A Toronto newspaper quotes with approval 
"H. CV in the High River (Alia.) Times as fol- 
lows: "Last week the annual meeting of the 
Canadian Institute on Public Affairs took place 
at Lake Couchiching. This is a sort of Chautau- 
qua where journalists of the Winnipeg Free Press 
school and professors of the Underbill type settle 
international affairs by the simple process of 
debating them in a manner wholly detached from 
the realities. Post-war reconstruction is a 
favorite topic because we haven't reached that 
point yet and may not even have a say in it when 
it does come. If all followed their example wc 
should be as clay in the hands of the potter/* 

Of course we all believe in debate and dis- 
cussion as a means of progress, but admittedly 
we have different ideas of what the realities are. 
As for not having a "say" in post-war recon- 
struction, that just depends on us. If we do not 
study, think and discuss now, if we do not put 
forth our viewpoint when the world sits down to 
the peace table, we shall not have a "say." 
Perhaps it would be as well if we didn't have 
a "say," for the record of the past 25 years shows 
that we Canadians may have had just a little too 
much "say" in international affairs. We know 
all about U. S. responsibility for failure of the 
League of Nations, but do we know enough about 
Canada's record at Geneva? 

Look at a little booklet called "Consider the 
Record: Canada and the League of Nations," 
written by Gwendolyn M. Carter, and published 
by the Canadian Institute of International 
Affairs and the Canadian Association for Adult 

The writer of this "Behind the Headlines" 
pamphlet describee Canadian policy at Geneva 
as "prevailingly negative in character— which in 
some circumstances may be no small con- 

The story is that Canada under Sir Robert 
Borden wanted international recognition as an 
independent nation and so went into the League 
of Nations in 1919 when the United States did 
not. Canada fought against the Covenant's 
Article 10, which bound the members of the 
league to preserve the territory of other 
members against aggression, and Article 10, 
which provided for sanctions against a nation 
which started war in disregard of the League's 
provisions for settling disputes by arbitration. 
From 1920 to 1D23, Canadian representatives, "of 
Conservative and Liberal governments alike, 
worked against the guarantees of Article 10," 
and finally secured passage of an interpretative 
resolution to the effect that recommendations of 
military measures should take into account the 
geographical situation of each state and that each 
slate should decide for itself the degree of 
military help it should give in enforcement of 
League decisions. 

The British nations, "Canada among them," 
played a "major role" in the rejection of.Jhe 
Treaty of Mutual Assistance, 1923, and "the 
Geneva Protocol, 1024. Canada's representatives 
said that Canada was a producer, not a consumer, 
of security. Canada was said to be living "in 
a fireproof house far from inflammable 
materials." 'The effect of the Canadian action 
in regard to Article 10 was to discredit the will- 
ingness of non-European countries to support 
the collective system. The rejection of the Treaty 
of Mutual Assistance and the Geneva Protocol, 
to which Canada contributed though by no means 
decisively, weakened belief in the League as a 
general security system." 

In 1925 the Canadian Liberal government 
announced specifically that it was not bound by 
the British Locarno guarantee of the French- 
German border. 

With regard to raw materials, international 
trade and immigration, Canada "had a tradition* 
ally exclusive policy. With regard to minorities 
it was traditionally liberal. On Ihe latter subject 

it had something valuable to demonstrate and 
did so effectively and in a timely fashion" (M. 
Dandurand as the Canadian representative told 
the League that the secret of successful treatment 
of a minority was to make it forget that it was 
a minority). 

Professor Arnold Toynbee (Miss Carter writes), 
speaking in 1936, declared that: "It seems to me 
that what really sent the Italians to fight 
Abyssinia was two things done by North Ameri- 
can countries. The first was In 1921 when the 
Italians raised the point of access to raw materials 

and the Canadian delegate stamped on it; and 
the second was the passing of two American 
immigration acts in 192 1 and 1924, which" pro- 
duced this mass of baulked young men in Italy 
who had to be turned to something, good or bad/' 
During the Japanese invasion of Manchuria, 
1931 to 1933. when the League had its first major 
failure, neither Canada nor any other govern- 
ment endorsed the American declaration that 
the United States would not recognize territorial 
gains made by force. In 1932 the Assembly 
representative of a Canadian Conservative 
government was one of three speakers* out of 25 
who did not condemn Japan's action, tfftey were 
Japan, Britain and Canada. Later, out of defer- 
ence to public reaction in Canada, this country 
endorsed a League report condemning the 
Japanese position in Manchuria. 

In 1935 the Canadian representatives of a Con- 
servative government played a leading part in 
imposing sanctions on Italy when that country 
invaded Ethiopia. Canada accepted all of five 
proposals for action against Italy. Then a change 
of government took place in Canada and Premier 
King, "aware of considerable opposition to 
sanctions," issued a ''cautious statement, endors- 
ing the sanctions which had already been 
accepted, but declaring that others would be 
considered on their individual merits." 

Dr. Riddell, the Canadian advisory officer at 
Geneva, who had played an active part in bring- 
ing sanctions into play against Italy, now 
proposed that petroleum, coal and iron and their 
derivatives should be put on the embargo list. 
This was to be considered on Nov. 29. Premier 
Pierre Laval (the same) of France, who had a 
secret agreement with Italy, secured a postpone- 
ment of the meeting until Dec. 12. Before that 
date the Canadian Liberal government issued 
a statement saying that Dr. Riddell's proposal 
for "oil sanctions" had not been made on its 
initiative but was merely the personal suggestion 
of Dr. Riddel!. This, coupled with the publication 
a few days later of the Hoare-Laval plan for the 
partition of Ethiopia, took "the heart out of 
League efforts/' 

"There is good reason to believe that oil 
sanctions would have prevented the Italian 
campaign ifi Ethiopia from being a success." 

* The abiding lesson to be learned from the 
League's experience in the Italo-Ethiopian con- 
flict is that the decision to enforce any system or 
any judgment implies willingness to use force. 
It is clear that a course of action should not be 
initiated unless it is to be carried through. But 
you cannot meet situations by avoiding initiative. 
Mr. King could say, as he did, that Mr. Riddell 
had acted without instructions. Others could say. 

as they did, that no initiative should ever be 
taken by Canada. But to secure peace, sanctions 
may at some point be necessary. Undertaking 
a program of sanctions implies imposing measures 
sufficiently strong to stop the aggressor. The 
inescapable logic is that sanctions may in the end 
mean war. But the dominions and Great Britain 
alike were unwilling to face this possibility, not 
only during the Italo-Ethiopian conflict but 
throughout the whole post-war period; and their 
unwillingness was a root cause of the weakness 
of the collective system." 

You may not agree, H. C, with Miss Carter's 
review of the lull between the two wars, but you 
should agree that Canadians have not only 
a right but a duty to study their own mistakes 

and successes and to plan more wisely for the 


(Simcoe Reformer) 

We learn that the dominion government has 
purchased some 6,000 acres of farm land near 
Meaford for an artillery and tank training centre. 
In the area involved there are softie 100 farms, 
four or five churches and about the same number 
of schools. The block takes in all the land form- 
ing the Cape Rich entrance to Owen Sound Bay. 
It is a great apple district with about 9,000 trees 
and an annual shipment of about 10,000 barrels 
of apples. 

We do not know the considerations that led 
the government to take so drastic a step. The 
ousting of farmers from their patrimonies and 
the closing of country churches and schools seem 
to us at all times to be disastrous to a country; 
for the strength of a country lies not in its cities, 
however large and opulent, but in its farmer folk, 
who have their roots in the soil and who, genera- 
tion after generation, raise families of strong, 
sturdy yeomen and supply the country with its 
leaders. In an overcrowded country where 
vacant lands are unknown such a step in wartime 
might be justified; but in Canada, with its plenti- 
ful supply of wide open spaces and still unsettled 
lands, such a wholesale ejection of- farmers from 
their lands seems regrettable in the extreme.

Of People And Things 

By Isabel Inglis Colville 


In these days when we wait 
with strained nerves for the 
United Nations to take the of- 
fensive, in Europe or in the east, 
it is sometimes good for mind 

and body to turn to the small, 
homey, everyday things about us 
and get what pleasure we can 
out of them. 

Just now, from where I am 
sitting, I can see two families of 
baby squirrels, three in each 
family, and they are learning 
the ways of their particular 
world. Three of them, as far as 
I can tell, live in one spruce tree 
and the other three in another. 

Since they first appeared a few 
weeks ago, we never see the 
older squirrels. Where are 

The tiny ones come down and 
play and chase one another 
about and then carry the bread 
I put out up the trees. Are the 
parents taking a well earned 
vacation and making the children 
earn the living for the family? 

Its a splendid problem to try 
and solve when your mind 
wants, instead, to try and look 
ahead and see if Hitler will 
reach Stalingrad, and even if it 
doesn't effectually block out the 
worry, it gives a sort of momen- 
tary relief. 

I read an article once, in the 
Reader's Digest, "Animals are 
human, too," and I thought of it 
as I watched what took place 
the other day. 

I soaked some of the bread 
for the squirrels in milk and 
watched what happened. Along 
came one little pensioner, picked 

William Philip Simms. writing from Washing- 
ton to the New York World-Telegram, says: "It 
is nothing new for Canadians to be good soldiers. 
There is none better anywhere. During the first 
world war nothing made me prouder than to hear 
Allied generals compare our doughboys with 
the Mapleleafers and to be told that ours were 
just as good." Mr. Simms was war correspondent 
during the Great War and saw the Canadians in 
act»on on the Somrac, at Mount St. Eloi, Sanctu- 
ary Wood and Vimy, also at Passchendaele and 

Ontario, with three battalions 
in the Dieppe raid, suffered *hc 
heaviest casualties of any prov-

listed this week as missing.

DIED — la Newmarket, on 
Sept. 10, 1892, Joseph Bognrt, in 
his tiSth year. 

Whitchurch township, once 
noted for the wolves and dogs 
that preyed on sheep, paid its 
first claim for sheep killed and 
worried by dogs this year when 
Warren Graves presented a claim 
for $32.50 for three animals 
killed at $10 each, and $2.50 for 
one damaged, at a meeting of 
the council on Saturday. Motion 
for payment was made by Coun- 
cillors Logan and Evans. 

In a letter to the council, Mc- 
Cu Dough & Button, Stouffville 
barristers, asked that considera- 
tion be given to opening the 
sideroad from the ninth conces- 
sion to the farm of H. Mitchell, 
who complains that he has no 
winter road. 

Mr. Mitchell had appeared at 
a previous meeting and staled 
the case, but it was felt that it 
would cost too much for a satis- 
factory job of widening the road 
in relation to the amount of 
(axes paid. 

Road Superintendent Widdi- 
field didn't think that a couple 
of days with the grader would 
improve the road much, although 
considerable thought was given 
to the question. The situation 
is similar to several other side- 
roads where only one farmer is 
living, it was pointed out. How- 
ever, Councillors Baker and 
Logan favored seeing what could 
be done with the grader in one 
or two days' operation. Over 
$9,000 of the township road 
budget has been spent, n later 
report indicated. 

The solicitor informed the 
council that township part-time 
employees do not come under 
the new unemployment insur- 
ance regulations. Where it is 
known that the employment will 
not exceed eight weeks in the 
12-month period, such persons do 
not come under the act. How- 
ever, if the employed person 
holds an unemployment insur- 
ance book, then he comes under 
the act. 

Reeve Earl Toole announced 
that he had signed a tax sale 
warrant, as directed by the 
council at a special session. Re- 
turns of back taxes are flooding 
in. Clerk Crawford reported. 

Relief for July totalled only 
$44.68, and hospitalization $58.87. 

Councillor Lome Evans intro- 
duced a resolution petitioning 
for a telephone in the home of 
Constable Dewsberry. "While 
the constable pays for the tele- 
phone, it requires the petition of 
council to gain a priority for a 
new phone,*' said Mr. Evans,

quivering and watches the 
squirrel, but they don't seem 
afraid of him and he doesn't try 
to disturb them. 

I saw two of the squirrel 
babies do another funny thing. 
They were sitting facing one 
another on a branch. Then, 
suddenly they patted each other's 
paws for a few seconds, touched 
noses and ran off in different 
directions. And how they drink! 
I often wonder if they fill their 
little cheek pouches with water 
and carry it to their parents. 

And Wooly, too, is developing 
very uncatlike traits! On Sun- 
day we were leaving home for 
a few hours, and, as the day was 
so lovely, we left him outside. . 
Now he often stays out of his 
own accord for hours, but in the 
strange way in which animals 
sense things, he had refused to 
go out all morning; followed us 
upstairs and down, and when we 
left he sat on the verandah and 
lifted up his voice in long wails. 
We had never had a cat do this 
before and found it upsetting, 
but he was waiting for us on 
our return and quite ready at 
supper time to pull poor Speck's 
tail and lie across his neck so he 
couldn't eat in any comfort. 

He follows me into the garden 
and helps me dig potatoes for 
dinner. He loves to dig! Maybe 
like me, he'd like to bury Hitler 
and all his crew in one of the 

Sometimes he — Wooly, not 
Hitler— pretends he's a jungle 
beast, and he's in ambush to 
spring at me as I pass. But 
jungle beast, or just plain cat, 
he and the squirrels and birds 
form a pretty pattern, and as I 
said before, are good for me 
when my brain refuses to even 
imagine the magnitude of the 
struggle we're engaged in, and 
after looking at simple things 
for awhile I can go back and 
listen to war news and feel that, 
to paraphrase a famous saying, 
"God's in his heaven, all WILL 
be right in the world."

After talking about culture, the ^SJr^iTt 
young man had been ashamed to 
own his own home. 

The young community leader 
suddenly realized that he had 
been working in the wrong 
direction. Culture was certainly 
to be desired but more important 
was the need for security. When 
his people and ail people had

The high wages of war-time 
industry have divided workers 
into three types. The first, 
having gone without so much for 
so long, spend every cent as fast 
as they make it in a frenzied 
desire to have all the fun they 
can while the money lasts.

One can certainly sympathize 
with each of those types of 
persons. Most of them are eager 
to play a full part in the war 
effort, and, while doing so, they 
have a right to enjoy a decent 
standard of living nor should 
they have to look to the future 
with a dread of unemployment 
and want. f 

More security should come to 
the workers with unemployment 
insurance. In peacetime as well 
as wartime, useful work must be 
provided and cadi wage-earner 
must be in a position to provide 
his family with the necessities 
and a few of the luxuries of life. 
A good general education and 
practical training for a vocation 
must be available to all.

f Look out, folks, here comes

No. 1 trouble tot, is on his way 
with his pals, Dizzy and Phyllis, 
and the kind of hilarious diffi- 
culties into which only Henry 
can get himself. 

"Henry and Dizzy/' Para- 
mount's latest Aldrich adven- 
ture.* is due Monday at the 
Strand theatre with Jimmy 
Lydon as Henry, Charles Smith 
as Dizzy and Mary Anderson as 
Henry's girl. Phyllis. John Litel 
and Olive Blakeney are Henry's 
harassed parents. Also in the 
cast are Vaughan Glaser and

•They Died With Their Boots 
On." the new Warner Bros, pic- 
ture which opens Monday at the 
Strand theatre, with Errol Flynn 
and Olivia de Havilland in the 
co-starring roles, brings to life 
on^ the screen one of the most 
stirring chapters in the history 
of the old west. But even more 
than that, it tells for the first 
time on the screen, the true story 
of the man who made the phrase: 
"Custer's Last Stand." a syno- 
nym for deathless courage. 

Gallant and adventurous. Gen- 
eral George Custer won himself 
an eternal place in the history of 
his country when he and his 
army regiment perished to a 
man, fighting in the knowledge 
that certain death awaited them, 
but they also knew that they 
would be holding off the enemy 
until reinforcements would be 
brought. It is this courageous, 
but hopeless, battle which makes 
the climax of "They Died With 
Their Boots On.'' as turbulently 
exciting as anything the screen 
has ever done. 

Flynn is cast perfectly as 
Custer, and he has done a mag- 
nificent job of bringing the 
historical character to life as a 
very real kind of person, build- 
ing up his man Custer in such 
a way that his magnificent act 
of heroism at the ctose of the 
story becomes perfectly logical 
and believable. As his sweet- 
heart and later his wife, Olivia 
de Havilland scores one of 
the notable hits of a lustrous 
career. In her capable hands, 
Beth Custer emerges as a fine 
and courageous woman. 

"Take a Letter. Darling," stars 
Fred MacMurray and Rosalind 
Russell. - 

The secretary-boss relationship 
has received a lot of attention 
in motion pictures for the last 
few years, ^nd you may have got 
tired of it. If so. take heart, for 
something new and hilarious has 
been added in "Take a Letter, 

Here is a movie that does a 
complete about-face, for in it 
Fred MacMurray is the secre- 
tary, and Rosalind Russell is the 
boss. Going still further off 
the Irack, MacMurray doesn't 
know the first thing about short- 
hand or typing. He is hired 
strictly for his good looks, his 
ability to wear dress clothes 
without looking like a head- 
waiter, and his irresistible gay 
way with the ladies.

By Captain Fred Brigfatuefl 

Salvation Army, 


This week I desire to write on 
"Fellowship/* You will find that 
the dictionary describes this word 
as "companionship," and who dot3 
not know the meaning of this 

U* Urf go back, as memory 
allows U3 to do, over tbe years, 
perhaps many years for some— for 
others only a few. However, do 
you recall, us you wended your 
way to school for the first time, 
everything seemed new and 
strange, you saw faces you had 
never seen before — perhaps it was 
their first time to school as well. 
Do you remember trying to make 
an acquaintance with these young 


Yes! I believe you do; I believe 

you even remember choosing a 
certain young person who, at first 
sight, you thought would make a 
good friend and as the days and 
month? passed, you found you had 
a real companion, one upon whom 
you could depend and whose pres- 
ence was helpful and pleasant. 
This friend, you found, would al- 
ways share their joys with you and 
if, when you were sorrowful be- 
cause of some unpleasant happen- 
ing, would try, in their beat 
manner, to bless and cheer you. 
Fellowship? Yes, this was fellow- 
ship Indeed. 

Even the sound of this word 
brings a warmth to one's heart 
and especially does warmth come 
when one 3peaks of "Fellowship 
with Christ."' 

Fellowship with Jesus? Is this 
possible? r#et ua look to God's 
Word and see what He has written 
for us. Paul In his first Epistle 
to the Corinthians, the first chap- 
ter, verse nine, writes— "Cod is 
faithful, by whom ye were called 
unto the fellowship of Ills Son 
Jesus Christ our Lord." This 
gives us i-ome proof of the ability 
God gives to everyone to have 
fellowship with Jesus. 

What does God say in I John, 
6? "If we say we have fellowship 
with him and walk in darkness we 
lie and do not tell truth." He not 
only points out the possibility to 
have fellowship with Christ, but 
the writer here states that if v.*e 
haven't fellowship with Jesus we 
are walking in darkness. It is 
written in Eph. 5:J1, "Have no fel- 
lowship with the unfruitful works 
of darkness/* 

Many people ask this question, 
"If it ie possible to have fellowship 
with Jf-sus, how do we go about 
It?" I want to ask you this ques- 
tion, dear reader, "When you 
associate with people day by day, 
week by week, year by year, do 
they not become familiar to you? 
Why. of course, they do. There- 
fore familiarity with Cod comes 
with communion and association 
with Him, day by day, year by 

Communication is important in 
peace or war— it makes possible 
co-operation with man to man. 
CornmunicUion with God is more 
Important— it means co-operation 
and fellowship with Him. 

How do we commune with Cod? 
Why, by prayer, through faith In 
our I-ord Jesus' Christ. It is writ- 
ten, -Ask, and ye shall receive." 
Also in James 1:5 we read, "If any 
/>f v.vj tack wisdom let him ask of 
fJod that givcth to all men liber- 

"There is also another 
and with this I shall close for to- 
day. We know that when we hold 
& conversation with anyone. It 
means they do the talking as well 
as we ourselves and so it must be 
with Cod— we must not only talk

Mrs. Ida Cook celebrated her 
80th birthday last Thursday. A 
surprise birthday party, which 
saw all her children, two of her 
brothers, grandchildren and 
great-grandchildren present, 
brought her special delight. 

Mrs. Cook, who before her 
marriage was Ida Mount, mem- 
ber of a well-known King town- 
ship family, was born near 
Kettleby and was educated there 
in a log school. 

In her early twenties she 
married the late John Cook and 
until 1916 they farmed on the 
sixth concession of King. Since 
that time she has resided in 
Aurora. Mr. Cook died in 1918. 
She has been a regular attendant 
at Aurora Baptist church and 
has taken a deep interest in 
church affairs.

up with his views on sport in war- 
time. Sez Mr. Icely (more power In 
him): "Baseball has given sand-lot 


conditioning to so many millions! lad Is now? 

ed from the parade ground to hos- 
pital last week, where he under- 
went an appendix operation. Pete 
is doing nicely and will be ready 
for hockey action with the tars. 
Bill Wilson is seekirie a place on 
the O.R.F.U. senior team sponsor- 
ed by the silent service and is 
making a fine showing according 
to Sailor Smith. Wilson is fast 
and a feood tackier, though a bit 
light. Mickey has had a brief 
whirl at rugby but is not taking it 1 
seriously He has his heart set on ; 
making the H.M.C.S. York hockey 
team and believes that with Bob 
Goluham of the I>?afs at the helm 
the sailors will win the senior 
O.H-A. title. Only trouble for 
Smith is that he is daily expect- 
ing a move to another cmtre. 

Lome Evans, the -Milton goal 
sensation of last year, now headed 
for action with Toronto Marlboros. 
is keeping fit by playing lacrosse 
with Etobicokc juniors, who look 
headed for a title. "Red" Gilles- 
pie, from the senior team of the 
Indians, who also played with 
Milton last year. Is also on the 
team. The sensational juvenile 
hockey line of two other Gillcspius 
and Hoare. which won a crown 
for Orangcville last year, is also 
with the Cokes and apparently 
headed for an ice season with one 
of the Toronto junior teams. 

Bill Armstrong, who played 
junior for Aurora two years ago 
and last year was with Hill Han- 
cock at Penetang. is currently 
being sought after by both Oshawa 
and Young Rangers. We fancy 
Ed. Wildcy may get him, as 
Oshawa light now is pretty well 
stocked with players. 

Ace Yaki' writes us from Sussex. 
N.B.: "Seems funny to see S^»t. 
Howard Morton, who was not good 
enough to be mayor or deputy- 
rceve of Aurora, doing so much for 
victory. Where are all the people 
who were against him? What are 
they doing? Have met Bowen of 
Richmond Hill, who is here with 
army service. He remembers 'Big 
Mike-' as the best of Aurora play- 
ers, just as we think of Teddy 
Bennett for them. I read when* 
you figure the town league all- 
stars would heat any of our old 
York-Simcoe league teams. Well, 
for me who have you got to corn- 
par* with a team composed of 
Mike Shapki. 'Nuggets' Shore. 
Jack Helmkay. 'Blondie' Rawlings. 
Wilf. White. Wally Jennings. 
•Wink' Barnard, Art. Walker. 
I.eon. Shropshire and Bill Bono. 
They were never champs but then 
who have these guys beaten this 
year except each other? Best 
wishes for Down the Centre, giv- 
ing us lugs a chance to follow our 
friends from afar. Could vmir 
team heat mine?" 

That's a pretty fair aggregation 
Yake has gathered together and 
unfortunately I guess we'll never 
be able to settle the issue on the 
playing field. Over the years n 
stronger team might have repre- 
sented Aurora in softball but our 
point was that In any one particu- 
lar year Aurora never hail a hotter 
aggregation available and we .still 
think we're rlyht. Had forgotten 
all about 'Big Mike" Shapki. the 
King City boy who caught for 
Aurora a few years back and was 
certainly a stand-out ball player.

Charlie Caso has laid chiim to

lowing the failure of Soman's to

penalty, and a major penalty. 

Tfus worm turns, or at least a 
friend of ours who is a piscatorial 
fiend, tells us that worms used in 
fishing are now rationed. With 
all the fancy bait that is supposed 
to lure fi^h out of a sand-pile and 
waters filled with good live bait, 
many anglers still prefer to use 
worms for bait, although they are 
not especially anxious to creep 
ever moist lawns at night with 
lanterns or flashlights to find 
them. The custom has been for 
stores In the fishinjr centres to 
have supplies sent from a bait 
company or for local youths to 
gather them up for sale. Now the 
kids are doing something else 
besides looking for worms, and the 
stores say they can get only a 
limited amount. It took a bunch 
of worms in charge of the Axis 
powers to accomplish the change. 
Probably fishermen may be figur- 
ing the extra numbers in their 
ration books are for worms, but 
so far it's not government imposed 
but simply because demand exceeds 
supply and the worm hunters are 
practically a thing of the past. 

Graham TeasdaU", the big Aurora 
lad who resides in Buffalo, has not 
waited for his number to be called 
in the draft but has joined the 
American army of his own free 
will and is stationed at Buffalo. 
From al! we hear Tiny is in a 
branch of the service similar to 
the army service in Canada. With 
the exception of Herb. Mitchell, 
Griham is the only Aurora boy to 
have made good in the pro hockey 
ranks. After junior service with 
Aurora, Newmarket, and Toronto 
I.ions, he turned to the moniod 
ranks with the Toronto Million- 
aires and then followed a Ions and 
honorable career in the minor pro 
ranks at Buffalo. Syracuse, Wind- 
sor. Kansas City. Omaha and 
several other clubs. He had 
several brief appearances in the 
N.H.L. but missed his big chance 
through injuries. He was a real 
star in the minor leagues and both 
Syracuse and Buffalo fans adopted 

him as their own. With over ten 
years of service under his he-It. 
although comparatively young, he 
decided to quit before hearing too 
many scars of battle and for the 
past three years he has worked 
for a beverage company at Buffa- 
lo and coached amateur teams in 
that city. Three years ago. while 
on a brief visit here, he took n 
hand at showing some of the 
Tigers the fine points of the game 
and they benefitted greatly. It 
was too bad ho couldn't have 
stayed to the end. I-ast year ho 
aeted as linesman In the home 
games of Ihe Buffalo club and in 
his first year ns an arbiter made 
a fine impression. Toasdalo. a 
big strapping fellow, never gave 

nor asked for any quarter on the 
Ice and was a hit of a badmait. 
On the field of battle he will be n 
tough homhro to see hearing down 
on the enemy and he'll neither 
ask for nor give quarter there. 
Tiny, now an American citizen. Is 
a credit both to his own and to 
his adopted country.

to be analyzed. The report show- 
that it was 66.4 percent pure al- 
cohol." The officer added that as 
there was not enough liquid In the 

.Jlon jar. he did not have It 

"Could the liquid in the jar be 
wine?" questioned counsel for the 
defence. "No, it smelled of spirits."' 
County Constable Alex. McCal- 
lum explained that he had aided 
Constable Hayward in the search 
of the outside premises. In ref- 
etencc to that officer's statements. 
Constable McCnlluni stated that 
they were correct. 

"Old you see the coat before?" 
asked the crown. 

"I saw Mr. Fountain wearine » 
coat similar In appearance before," 
replied the officer. He denied 
having seen evidences of small 
fires which could have been made 
by picnickers in the district, cr 
evidence of cattle grazing widen 
coutd have broken the fence. 

County Constable William Ili!l 
corroborated Constable Hrown's 
statement that the liquid found l» 
the gallon jar was spirits and not 
wine. He also stated that he had 
seen Mr. Fountain wearing a c«Jt 
during tho last winter similar t« 
that produced in court. 

Giving evidence In her husband's 
behalf, Mrs. Fountain stated that 
her husband was employed In war 
work at Malton. She stated that 
there was considerable traffic 
thraugh the property known as 
I»wc's estate west of her home 
(where the still was found) ami 
that she was accustomed to throw 
the refuse from the house such as 
potato peeling?, etc., to the ten 
head of cntle which grazed there. 
Referring to the gallon jar found 
In the chicken-coop, she said that 
some city friends had brought it to 
her home filled with wine nnd that 
when It was empty nh« had placed 
it In the coop with sonic stove- 
pipes. She nlao slated that tour- 
ists mode fires along the river 
bank. Questioned further by the 
defence counsel she said that a 
neighbor hnd been convicted of 
having a still on the some property. 
Upon cross-examination by Mr. 
Mathews for the crown ahe »ald 
that her husband had not been 
working the week that the police 
hnd searched the premises. She 
would not admit that he was on 

"Could you swear that your 
husband was not on strike from 
war work that week?** questioned 
the crown. The witness replied 
that she coutd not swear that he 
wn« not on strike. 

When counsel for the defence 
objected to the queries of the 
crown on this point, the Utter 
■tated: "If she can Imply that ho 
was working on war work we can 
go further and show that he was 
on strike at ths tune." 

Questioned further Mrs. Foun- 
tain adrrJlUd that the convicted 

neighbor had moved from the 
vicinity four year* previously.

it Gordon Webb, Sherbourne St.. Tor- 
onto, hii worship sent the case on 
for trial before a grand jury. The 
defendant, who elected to be tried 
by a court of higher jurisdiction, 
was charged with taking articles 
to the value of $50 including a 
radio, a mattress and an electric 
toaster from Mrs. Herron. Orchard 
Beach. Lake Stmrne. on Aug. 2. 

According to Mrs. Herron. she 
had rented an apartment in her 
cottage at Orchard Beach to Dr. 
Webb from June 13 to Aug. 13 at 
$60 a month. She said that she 
had received two amounts for 530 
and given him receipts. When 
he tried to remove the articles 
from the apartment on Aug. 2. 
she forbade him to do so until he 
number of paid $60 rent owing. The witness 
said that Dr. Webb then made out 
a cheque for the amount and took 
the articles. When she deposited 
the cheque In the bank he had 
stopped payments. 

Pleading guilty to 
forging and uttering a cheque in 
the amount of $10, William Calvert. 
R. R. 3. Bolton, was placed on 
suspended sentence for three 
months upon making restitution 
and paying costs amounting to 

According to County Constable 
William Hill. Mr. Calvert admitted 
making out a cheque for the sum 
of $10 payable to himself and 
signing the name of Donald St 
John. The officer stated that the

Attorney N. U Mathews. K. C. 
drew to his attention the fact thatij « 
the defendant had already served in 
six months in Burwnsh for forg- 
ing S i cheque on March 30. 1942. 
He pointed out that the cheque 
in the present charge was forged 
previous to the cheque in the 
other instance, and if the two 
charges had been laid together the 
defendant would have been given 
suspended sentence on one of tho 
charges. His worship agreed with 
the crown and suspended sentence. 

Ruling that there was insuffi- 
cient evidence in the charge of 
theft against a 17-year-ol«l Peffer- 
law youth to warrant a conviction. 
Magistrate Mcllveen stated that 
he would give him the benefit of 
the doubt and dismiss the case. 

The youth was Charged with 
Stealing a pair Of handcuffs, valued 
under $25. the property of County

second charge, of receiving stolen

An interesting letter has been 
received by Wm. H. White, war 
veteran, from his son, Tpr. David 
White, who is with the Canadian 
army overseas. 

"Just a note to say I am still 
alive and well. We are still in 
the south of England and expect 
to be here for a while, perhaps 
all winter. 

"I missed the Dieppe raid. Our

"The Salvation Army was first

was changed to the Salvation

No doubt the Italian was:

monkey was curious as to what 
was in that delectable candy!

does a drake's tail curl up thnt
