The CJ.O. in the United States started this myth on its zounds when it demanded in the General Motors strike that the company's books be opened to the unions at; the council' table where rew wage snd working agreements were taacter consideration- Labor leaders who incline to the social- istic Tie's- lor factory ownership, iac not at aH to the socialistic view that the worker must do as the Government says, hare been very active ia. pressing the case lor con- tinuation of price controls arid elimination of all -wage j That is why Mr. Masher Mr. Conroy of the Canadian Congress of Labor were emboldened to in- dulge in what Prime Minister King characterized as "rough talk" ss Friday's conference between the Cabinet, and the C.Ci. leaders. They were trying to spread the propaganas that high wages can be thas the Government can collect large taxes to pay social security items such as unemploy- ment insurance, and. that this can oe done without increasing the costj of goods to consumers. They wan; the people to believe this, and to aid the spread of this belief they say to the Government; thai is has dene nothing at all to plan for the transition of industry from war to peace. The public knows, of course, that higher wages mean higher consumer nrices. The public knows that escess profits have drained off all but the normal profits of industry through the war years, and that it is from r'nis source that much of Canada's record tax revenue has been derived- The public Szsows xhat, when a house which formerly costs now costs to build, much of the increase is cattsed by the higher wages paid in the labor for the materials which enter into the building of the house. The public knows, too, that a S7.500 home cannot be rectea at the same price as a. home, and thatj thas is one of the reasons vrhy the housing shortage is aot being more rapidly met. As for the retention oi price con- trols when wage controls are re- moved that would simply lead to! the dosing down of industry in Canada. If enterprisers cannot see a fair profit they just close shop. We have seen that in a primary industry in the reduction by 080 ia tiie number of hogs raised by Canadian farmers. We have seen in the shortage of butter. "Workers are asking higher wages, and enterprisers are quite as human as other workers. Removal of ail wage controls can only be j-jsiified if price controls are removed at the same time, and to remove price controls now ia the j greatest scarcity marie; in Car.-! ada's history would Kow the roof j and bring the worst inflation in.' our history. Nobody would suffer; more ia the long run m such a case j than ihe worker. Labor leaders should be telling their that, instead of trying to incite them by telling them that merit and industry are doing noth- ing for the reconversion period.

He describes studies on a patient aged 34 who for about ten years had had attacks of hives with swelling of the face every time he ate lamb or mutton. The attack appeared five to six hours after the the Weekly meat kad eaten. All skin tests with lamb or mutton caused no symptoms; that is the patient vvas negative.
