C, May 3. -The war veterans, at this morning's session of their conference passed a resolution calling upon the oover'nrtient to introduce and enforce a rationing mea-.urc similar to that prevailina in Groat Britain and to fix the price of all necessities. A second resolution asked that all officers and non-commissioned officers and men who enlisted in the early' days of the war, and who have not yet been ovciacns be supplanted'by men of corresponding rank who have seen service at the front and who are no longer physically fit for field service. At the same time It wag asked that all staffs of casualty depots be composed entirely of men who had seen service at the front. There was some discussion of the case of Frank ^Wzon of Calgary, who, while not recovered from the effects of oc.-vice st the front, had taken from n roflistercd letter the sum of $9.75 for which hp was sentenced to three years' imprisonment, he having been in prison since February, it was shown that the govirnment was paying him $2.00 a day. Ho had a "family of six to maintain and gov-crnment returns siiowcd that "this was at a time when it was calculated that the least a man could maintain an average family on wai $19.75 a week.
