Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta r v *r BIG WAR PROBLEMS Shouldered the Trials and Tribulations of Canadian Industrial World for Three Years.

But of nil Uir men in the Dominion of Canada- directly or Ipdiroclty interested in this new bodx, none oC them will, no doubt, breath a de'meiv.slgh of relief at its inauguration than will Mr. V. C. T. O'Hara, Deputy Minister of j Trade and Commerce at Ottawa. Being a. Government official, find having ho many internals to'look after* and bains exported to remain neutral on many subjects, Mr. o'Hara would' have nothing to say about matters of policy adopted by the Government, but those who know what bunions have boon imposed j many important factories into biff niton the Department of Trade and Commevce hy � thc war will assu rn e J.

This fact imposed tremen- ihat Mr. O'Hara gives the appoint- kJous hardships on the Department of met oC a War .Trade Hoard his hearty cmlorsation. The average manufacturer ordin- m arily never takes a personal inter- Trade- and Commerce in general, and Mr. K. C. T. O'JIara, in particular. The complaints and enquiries that flowed into the departments quesc t!6n box would ctfnvey to'the unlnltN t:st in affairs of administration. But jated the idea that Mr. O'Hara was personally to blame for what had taken place. Many important-industries wero confronted with the alter- let anything interfere with the ebb and fiow of his ra.w materials or finished products, to and fro across the border,.or let anything interfere with his* business in almost any way, and hp will Immediately-journey or'write' to Ottawa to find out what is wrong:. The offhiOH of the Department of1 Trade and Commerce are generally the manufacturer's first and final destination. The Deputy Minister is always accessible and if he, the manufacturer, does not come away satisfied ho leaves Jhe department with the assurance that everything possible is being1 done for him. The story is told of a young man who resinned his position for a more lucrative one. and two men had to be laUen on bv his former employer to do the work he recently left. This j*epni� to be what has happened in the appointment of a War Trade .Hoard. It hay been a part of Sir Ueorgxj Foster's department, with Mr. O'Hara accepting responsibility for it, with all his other work. Now a. body of men will devote mo�t of their time to this work in the hope that a concentration of effort will produce .more results. When war broke out trade stop- native of shutting down, and the onus wan placed on Mr*. O'Hara. Many conferences were held in Ottawa, and _ committees , formed with [representatives going to the Government direct, but without avail*. Fln^ ally it Was tacitly decided to leav* the matter, with Mr. = .O'Hara, who journeyed to Washington ,and took part fn a conference^ .with", t&e War Industries Board of -..tlie'. United States. The result ofthls conference did not give the manufacturing interests in this country complete satisfaction, but it did result in warding off a serious crisis. Mr. O'Hara succeeded in getting certain quantities of materials through, which have enabled the factories to keep going. If there was ever an organization that 13 governed by an adamantine Attitude iowords anything but war work, it is the War Industries Board of the United States. , War .comes first, and rightly *o, and woe betide any manufacturer who gets too persistent in his appeals for materials that arc not needed for specific war work, and if the Canadian War Trade Boc hij? a.ffabllity in KOcial inter-^11-schooled in the duti,s upper- coursc> Howevev, he does not seem fajning to that office.

Ho is the owner of a mansion with a romantic history. Hever Castle, in Kent, which this American-bom peer purchased some years, ago, was an ancient mansion when it came into the hands of the tamily of Boleyn. Here Anne Boleyn passed her childhood and was courto" by Henry VIIT. When her father died Hever -was taken over by Henry, who gave-the castle to Anne of Cleeves, but it is the beheaded Anne whose ghost was said to haunt the scene's of her girlhood every Chrlstmastlde. Viscount Astor carried out the restoration of the castle with great care, and thc old place is now a charming residence.

Me got one as messenger then and there, at three dollars a week, and quit school immediately. Hardly twenty years later- this one sentence tells how successful lie was-he formed a syndicate, got controj of Cambria Steel, and by dint of twelve days of interesting manoeuvring, sold it and cleared for himself and his associates $12,000,000 -Sl',000,000 of which was his. A Steel Expert HK Hudson tubes were being built. They needed four thousand tons of bolts. Four thousand tons of bolts constituted what steel men called "a plum." And the ques- -tion at once uppermost in the minds of them .was(^'"Who is to, get this pliim?" And / they all considered carefully and got ready to bid. So,' too, did young Mr. Rep?ogle. He knew his bolt department thoroughly; he knew.what the JJ00 men in it could do, what their materials cosi-^knew, in n word, about tiU there was to know about that department except a sure jvay in which to make it so efficient it could seize that plum! , He looked about. He studied, and j the spectacle that bothered himmicst was that of his bolt makers turning, bolts by hand-like plumbers at the end of wagons. "Why not invent a machine for rolling threads instead of cutting them?" he asked himself, In plenty of time to seize that plum he invented such a machine. one man could do the work formerly done by ten. He got his plum. He got a patent on bis machine, and a great many bolt makers pay him royalties now. It was no time, in fact, till1 the' young chief of sales was assistant to tho \Nce-president and general manager. Then he .was made assist: ant to the president, then vice-president an$ general manager of sales. Then along came American Vana-diutn, the largest corporation of its kind in the 'world.'  American Vanadium said, ''We'll give you'almost any old figure if you'll come over and he vice-president and:general manager of sales." He went over. Shortly afterward he formed a syndicate and would have made himself president- if the syndicate had been successful I in /.reUinff complete control, which it wasn't! But Cambria was his real love. Mis thoughts persisted there. He learned that tho Pennsylvania Kail-road for reasons he. understood fairly well wanted to get rid of its control of Cambria. That interested him. He wondered' why he shouldn't have registrar,-but it was under his direct supervision that tho office staff, about two hundred and fifty persons (in all, was organized, j Biy profession Mr. Wilson is a. publisher, being general mai.ager of tho Wilson Publishing Company, Llmitud, of Toronto, which position he temporarily vacated about six months- ago in order , to devote ids time and energies to the administration of the Military Service Act.

The Kaiser expressed the devout wish that, his own Socialists would only show the same sense. At that time the.' Bagdad' It a i 1 w ay was a n i m po r ta n t "hi gh -political" topic, and we, .find. Lord Morley telling Lord Minto that "In School, Toronto, lie one day got it (your most private ear I confide to into .his head that tlie institution should have a good, live hockey team.

When lie was a stu-dent; at .'Varsity he organised the Alpha B^ta chapter house. And a you that important talks took place about the Bagdad Railway." Wc lead a good deal that is interesting about what Lord Morley heard of the Kaiser's personality from some who saw him at close quarters. He estimated the general verdict from those well qualified, to judge as being [adverse to any claim 1n the front I rank with' Ihsmarcki or Cavour, or Metternich.

SAW WAR COMING ^LTHOUGR Lleut.-General Si r Henry Wilson, D.S.O., who has been appointed to represent Great Britain on the Allied War CounclJ, has not figured in the limelight ot war' correspondents'. telegrams and official despatches, he has played a part in the war of inestimable im* I portancc. He Is possessed- ot a genius for strategy and a foresight of coming events that is regarded as pro* phetlcal. Sir Henry began his military career as a rifleman, and was always unorthotfox. Early in the century he was positive that the great Pnis-slan menace would materialine, and doubtless this conviction was the foundation, of all bis efforts. He knew every inch of tho French frontiat. TOach year he made p. tour of It *>n bicycle- When imr broke out he went to FraaM With the expeditionary force as one of the leading mem-4bera of thc general staff. , a certain executive of the Pennsylvania Railroad. "You've got 240.000-shEires of Cambria 1 want to. buy," he said. "What'll you give?" He named his figure. Tlie executive named his. They compromised on sixty dollars. Without much delay or much.ado, J. Leonard Ucnlogle, looking: very young, handed over a check for fifteen million dollars and more-which did not by any means represent ail the capital he had buck of him on this little adventure. For his ndven-. ture was to qomblne Cambria, Lacka-I Wanna Steel and Younggtown Sheet and Tube, and give U.S. Steel the stiffest competition it had ever known. He is charged wiih keeping thoroughly Informed about the steel production in every plant of nl!1 America: with the proper classification of product*; the standardization of them, and for the administration of the capacities of all mills. He doesn't actually buy the billions of dollars' worth of steel that are being bought, but he does nearly everything else and keeps reins and whip on all the mills. Each week, in other words, the great sheets that are on hie desk before him, fell him Just what mills. If any, arc "not coming up to axratcU*1 v club was the moving spirit. A good oiganizr-r nr promoter Is not necessarily ;i good manager,.Mr. Wilson Is strong in both respects. He can pick the right, kind of man for a particular job about as quickly and as well as most men occupying executive positions.
