A feature of the session was broadcast of speeches from the floor of the legislative chamber, a new innovation in Canadian legislatures.

The committee also urg- ed continuance of subsidies on basic foods, particularly milk.

This was not the first; time that gray-haired, dynamic Lt.-Col. W- R. Hodgson had demonstrated that his country's foreign policy was not tied to that of Great Britain or any other power, Thursday's action was typical of the independent, aggressive course he has followed on the Iranian ques- tion. With the possible exception of Secretary Byrnes of the Unit- ed States, this army officer-diplomat has talked more than any other member of the council. Iran, he supported the measure on the ground it was ia line with his original motion to gather infonna- non before acting.
