Gustav Jodl ecratched Jus a-ime on a cocu- menE which, sent the European phase of the Second Great War into-the archives of history, marked the first'anniversary of the surrender too few soldiers in town to hold a parade. Citizens and soldiers observed the daj" by visiting the surrender room in the "Little Red the. former "war room" of supreme head- quarters. Allied expeditionary forces, which has become a French national snrine. The room has been preserved exactly as ii was at the mo- ment "of the German capitula- tion. The war maps are there, the weather maps, railway maps and supply maps. A "lay-on" board lists air force missions of the following day. There is a chart of Allied casualties as of May 6. 1945. showing 122.072 killed in action, wound- ed, and missing. Kest to it is a chart in the form of a Nazi swastika, showing 051 German prisoners taken. WHERE SURRENDER SIGNED In the centre of the room is The Left Hand Corner. a long, scarred arid begrimed table where the historic sur- render document was signed. Placed around it are 13 straight- backed wooden chairs, with placards showing who occupied them. Unless the visitor, loots close- ly he is apt to miss a piece of paper pasted on the wall near a row of windows. The paper is the "top secret" war room daily summery. No. 335. It reads: "Surrender. The German government surrendered uncon- ditionally at Reims, Prance, as 0241 hours 7 May 1945. The Instrument of surrender was signed by Lt.-Gen. W. Eedeii Smith for the supreme com- mander and bv General ObersE Gustar Jodl for the German government. Maj.-Gen. Ivan Susloparov signed as repre- sentative of the Russians, and Gen. Francois Sevez as repre- sentative of the French gov- ernment. Hostilities officially cease at 2331 hours, central European time." Otherwise there is little to remind the visitor of the hustle and bustle of a 3-ear ago. Bracken Motion Raps Gov- ernment Farm Price Policy OTTAWA. May Charges were made in commons Monday that the government's policy on farm price ceilings was discouraging farm produc- tion. progressive Conservative Leader Bracken made the charge. Hon. J. G. Gardiner answered. The debate will con- tinue Tuesday. The farm debate developed at j the night sitting when John Brack- en. Progressive Conservative leader. moved an amendment on a motion to go into committee of supply to study estimates.

I GARDINER ANSWERS j Discussing the current beef shon- I age. Mr. Gardiner attributed it to the decision of Canadian packers that they would pay less a head for cattle. This action discouraged marketings and resulted in farmers holding their caitle back on the farms. The minister noted that cattle I now were coming back to indicating a end to the shortage of beef in Canadian butcher shops. as a result of prices moving back to their former levels. M. J. Coldwell.
