There has developed a drive by U.S. industry to attract Canadians across the border. This has re- sulted in a mounting tide nf trained Canadians moving south to take up residence and jobs, through Winnipeg and other major Canadian centres where American consuls are located.

The second congratulatory telegram came from Presi- dent Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia, and the third Gero, Hungarian party boss. The telegram of congratulation's from the Red Chinese leader was delivered with pointed swiftness and within only a few hours of Mr. Gomulka's selection as the Polish Com- munist party boss. Mr. Gomulka's possession of the three telegrams made It plain to the Kremlin that any move against the Poles would put Russia at odds with its Communist Chinese comrades in the Far East and revive danger of a new break with Marshal Tito. b QUEBEC (CP) A student isj due to appear in municipal court I today following his arrest Tues- day night on a charge of drunk- enness and disorderly conduct; during masg demonstrations.

"We want to base the relations between our nations and- parlies on the principles of equality and rid ourselves of anything which could contradict these Cyrankiewicz said. In the next few days, he said, all Russian troops will be sta- tioned exclusively at bases whose existence stems from interna- tional treaties. Reflecting the ever-present Polish fear of Ger- nian reunification, Mr. Cyrankew- icz added: "These treaties are dictated by our security, especially in the face ol German revisionism." Mr. Cyrankiewicz said members of the Polish Communist Polit- buro will meet with members of the Soviet Communist presidium THE PROFESSOR VS. THE PEOPLE TORONTO sociologist] der of a typical fast-growing On- who wrote a report questioning the moral standards of residents of suburban'Highland Creek said Tuesday: "If I'd known it was going to be made public. I wouldn't have written the report." Prof. S. D. Clark of the Univer- sity of Toronto prepared the 23- page report on economic and so-, cial developments in Scarborough township for a research group' which is to make a study of the area. It described the Highland Creek resident as a man who could set up housekeeping with a common- tario community. Prof. Clark said he did not have an opportunity to edit his report for the press. "It was written in longhand, Peter Lewicki, 34, of 517 Rjver- ton avenue was seriously injured law wife without inviting the Wednesday morning when he fell sure of his neighbors; a man from the new Eaton car-park whose heavy expenditures in beer parlors kept him poor. Highland Creekers didn't take it lightly. MP PROTESTS Richard E. Button, Progressive Conservative member of the On- tario legislature for York Scar- borough, said the ereport was "mean, contemptible, filthy slan- being built on Hargraye street. Police said Mr. Lewicki, an em- ployee of Claydon Construction Co., was in "very poor" .condition in Winnipeg General hospital. At press time hospital officials said the victim. was still in the X-ray room and the extent of his injuries had not yet been deter- mined. and it was my understanding it was purely confidential. It was written with no thought on my part that all these statements were necessarily true, but to pro- voke discussion among the group." He said he was not referring to the whole population of Highland Creek, but only to a certain type of individual who is more readily found in that part of Scarborough than in other parts. UNFORTUNATE TAG "I wouldn't venture to say there was even one per cent of resi- dents who are like this. "The term Highland Creek resi-. dent, which I first defined as one particular sociological type as op- posed to the general Scarborough resident, was an unfortunate tag. "I only meant that I had found more of this type in Highland Creek than in Scarborough gen- erally. If I'd known the report was to be released to the'.press, I would have chosen the name more carefully. Some of my col- leagues live in Highland Creek." With 'onuses (CP) Troops Tlle provincial political arena has been suddenly brought to life stood by here' Wednesday as a crowd of students brought traffic to a standstill by marching through Warsaw streets shouting "down with Russia." About 50 armed troops on motorcycles drove along streets parallel to the marching stu- dents. Fire engines were brought out and made ready. Despite an earnest appeal for an end to demonstrations, the students gathered less than four hours later. PRISONERS RELEASED LONDON (Reuters) Warsaw- Radio reported Wednesday that'94 prisoners were released from Poz- nan prison Tuesday under an or- der to revise all indictments re- sulting from the June 28 riots in the west Polish city. FLYING COPS CAPETOWN (Reuters) Pass- ers-by were startled when they saw seven policemen climb through a window in the magis- trate's court building at Beaufort west and jump into a flower bed. They had been writing their ex- aminations and were accidentally locked in the building. Anti- Communist Figkters Defy Ultimatum BULLETIN VIENNA (Reuters) The Hungarian gov- ernment tonight de- clared a state of emer- gency throughout the country, Budapest Radio reported. The radio said heavy fight- ing was still going on near the city's Karoly Robert barracks.

Spot checks at six polling divi- sions at noon showed that approxi- mately 6.2 per cent of the eligjble voters had already cast their ballots. This compares with about 5.4 per cent at the same hour in both 1954 and 1952 when the highest percentage of voters in recent city history exercised their franchise. Here is a comparison of the number of citizens who had voted at noon today compared with the TUNIS Sultan Mohammed V glumly ordered a plane home Wednesday. He and Tunisian leaders broke off talks interrupted when France seized five Algerian rebel leaders and cnranged the Arab world. Mindful of the ruse France used to capture the leaders of the Al- gerian rebellion, the sultan's household made clear he would not travel in a French plane. The sultan came to Tunisia to warplanes had joined tanks and machine-gunners in the fierce battle to crush the anti-Soviet and presumably anti Communist rebellion gripping t h e Hungarian capital. Budapest radio announced to- night that the anti-Soviet rebels fighting Russian and Hungarian soldiers in Budapest had defied the latest Hungarian government ultimatum to surrender and con- tinued their battle. Russians tanks by the dozens were reported rolling through the streets and firing on blazing build- ings. Budapest Radio reported "numerous soldiers, .citizens and .members of the security forces" were slain in wild, riotous fighting which burgeoned from peaceful demonstrations against Moscow Tuesday night. 150 Dead A Westerner who reached War- saw from Budapest said 150 per- sons were reported killed as tanks fought the rebels outside the Hun- garian parliament building. Budapest radio announced sol- diers had captured a machinery plant where rebels held out for three hours. It appealed to wives and trade unions to dissuade men from joining the demonstrations.: I T. same time in 1954, when the last mayoralty election was held, and in 1952 when the modern record turnout of 54.8 per cent of the elec- torate was marked up.

But political observers felt that one fact was significant. In St. Boniface five days ago, as in Winnipeg Wednesday the peo- ple were voting on liquor.

Wednesday Duff Roblin, provin- cial Conservative leader, was re- ported in the area laying the groundwork for his campaign. Also in the riding was B. H. Remple, provincial leader of the Social Credit. Lloyd Stinson, CCF lead- er, was preoccupied with his party's activities in the Winnipeg civic election, but he was sched- uled to go into the constituency Friday for a general "look see." The Liberals have scheduled a nominating convention for Lundar. Nov. 1, and Mr. Roblin has stated categorically that his party will make a fight to capture the Liber- al stronghold, formerly held by Chris Halldorson, whose death last month created the vacancy. Doubts still remain, however, as to .whether CCF and Social Credit will enter the race, and decisions by these parties are expected by the end of this week.

Hon. Sel wyn Lloyd and Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden to co-ordinate the next moves in the Suez crisis. The French foreign minister ar- rived with almost no prior an- nouncement in a French military aircraft at London airport and was driven immediately to the official residence of the Foreign Secretary at No. 1 Carlton Gar- dens, where Sir Anthony joined the party for dinner. Diplomatic sources reported that the visit is understood to have followed messages from UN Sec- retary-General Dag Hammarsk- jold in New York on the possibility of renewing talks with Egypt. The dinner party discussion centered on an Anglo-French response.
