The blistering attack by De- fence Minister Norman Rogers, following a visit he had Just made to Britain and France, Is wnr committee of the Canadian cabinet, made public here. The committee, which made nil the key decisions affecting Canada's participation in lire Second World War, was consti- tuted Dec. three months after the outbreak of hostilities. Documents Just released by the government to the Public Ar- chives cover its deliberations to the end of 1941. The committee minutes, presented in summary form, recounted in proceedings of the I also show that Canadian leaders FIGHTS FOR LIFE Dr. Hnrry Bard, of the Montreal St. Justin's children's hospital, keeps walch over an un- identified two-week-old boy who was pronounced in a stable condition after a drug was flown from London to the U.S. and from the Vermont border to Montreal by ear. Suggests ads on post stamps CINCINNATI (AP) A Cincinnati company has de- veloped an idea to help the United States Postal Service overcome its annual deficit and stabilize mailing costs- sell advertising on stamps. Employment program evaluated EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government is going to evaluate the effectiveness of Its priority employment program, established last October in an effort to reduce winter unem- ployment. The ?10-milHJon program is di- vided about equally between the creation of jobs and (he es- tablishment of new training op- portunities. Bert Hohol, minister of man- power and labor, said in a news release here that information is being gathered on people in- volved. Special attention will be given to people who have com- pleted training programs to de- termine how successful they were in obtaining work. A sim- ilar approach will find out what opportunities became available to people directly on government projects. Dr. Hohol said the study will assist in development of a long- term manpower program which will include income and population projections, defini- of seasonal and chronic un- employment areas and an as- sessment of training capacities. DC-9 CRASHES ANKARA (AP) A Turkish Airlines DC-9 with five persona aboard crashed Friday on its way back from Mecca, killing a stewardess, airport sources re- ported. The plane crashed near Adana, in southern Turkey. It was returning with only the crew after flying a 'load of Turks to the Moslem holy city in Saudi Arabia for the annual pilgrimage. The idea was presented re- cently to Assistant Postmas- ter-General William Dunlaj> who referred it to the stamp advisory committee for con- sideration. David Pritchard, president of Pritchard Inc. Advertising, said the advertis- ing could raise million annually. "It's kind of wild, but we think the idea has Pritchard said, adding that the postal service has a billion annual deficit. Three killed near Warburg WARBURG (CP) Three men were killed and two in- jured in a car-truck collision at a rural intersection five miles south of here. Dead are Brian Charpentier, 23, of B a w 1 f, and Peter Smol- ski, 31, and Richard Eliason, both of Camrose. Injured were Lee McCallum of Camrose and Doug Tizzey, 21, of Warburg. Warburg is 35 miles south- west of Edmonton. were concerned in the first year of the war that Canada had im- paired Its own defence position by massive contributions of mil- itary supplies to Britain. Mr. Rogers, Wiled not long afterward in an airplane crash, reported following his trip over- seas that Britain was suffering from "a thorough lack of prepa- ration for mechanized war- fare." Germany had a 2-to-l edge over Britain in numbers of air- cralt, and the vulnerability of British industrial areas to air attack had been increased "to a most dangerous extent" by the German occupation of Dutch and Belgian air bases. CHIDED 'COMPLACENCY1 The British government's "apparent complacency" in [ace of the bombing danger was hard to comprehend. The au- thorities apparently had failed completely to consider that Brit- ish industrial areas might be open to attack, and no serious attempt had been made to de- centralize production. Mr. Rogers denounced what he called the incompetence and lack of imagination of British officials and their apparent ina- bility to adapt themselves to new conditions, "or to any thought of the possibility oi los- ing the war." As an example, he noted that the British expeditionary force in France had halted winter construction of concrete defence works on the grounds it was im- possible to pour concrete at low temperatures. Difficulties of winter flying had grounded all Royal Air Force planes at one time in the section of the front he visited. And no attempt had been made by the British to take ad- vantage of Canadian experience in areas where Canadian expert' ence might have been thought to count. Mr. Rogers mentioned "difficulties" encountered by the British in Norway, but oth- erwise there was no elaboration. Canadian expert advice had been offered "in vain" to the British War Office. After the defence minister left England, Winston Churchill took over as prime minister from Neville Chamberlain, and he found an ensuing reorganization Egg prices EDMONTON (CP) The egg and poultry report Issued by the federal agriculture de- partment: Eggs To producers: A large 42; A medium 38; A small 22; B 22; C 6; cracks 6.

SENT DESTROYERS On May the war com- mittee decided to accede to a British request (or Canadian de- stroyers to help protect Britain against Invasion. Of Canada's seven destroyers, four were to be sent for service with the Royal Navy, the others being under repair or otherwise com- mitted. Despite the decision, Prime Minister Mackenzie King had misgivings about its possible ad- verse effect on Canada's own defence situation. Successive imperial conferences had estab- lished the rule that the first ob- ligation of each member-state in the British Commonwealth was defence of its own territory. The government, in meeting the latest British request, was making it difficult or impossible for Canada to fulfil this obliga- tion. The committee agreed that Mr. King should advise Presi- dent Franklin Roosevelt of the situation, so that the U.S. might have "an opportunity to be ready" to protect the North At- lantic coast if that should prove necessary. The same meeting apparently decided to reject a United King- dom request for available Cana- dian supplies of 4.7 Mgtxxplo- slve shells, after Mr. Rogen argued that they couldn't be spared. Mr. Rogers noted that Canada already had committed W per cent of its reserve stock of Email-arms ammunition to Brit- ain. HOME DEFENCE WEAK At a May 29, 1940, meeting, Mr. King said military contribu- tions to Britain had left Canada '.'virtually undefended." Consid- erallon might have to be given to the formation of a home of- fence ministry. At a meeting June the committee decided to refuse re- quests from Britain and France for small-arms ammunition. Mr. Rogers told the meeting that compliance with previous unanticipated British requests had resulted In serious depletion of Canadian supplies, and that rifle practice by Canadian forces had to be curtailed. And on Aug. the com- mittee decided to reject a Brit- ish request for a large supply of rifles on the grounds that Can- ada had no surplus. However, it was noted that there was B like- lihood American rifles would soon be made available to the British. REGULAR CATTLE SALE MONDAYS at 1 p.m. PRAIRIE LIVESTOCK LTD.
