Haanigan said, that he was develop- ing a device so that ihe group could use infra red light, and thus elimin- ate the possibility of betraying their presence. Capt Hannigan said two youths, equioped with a walkie-talkie, would" sit in. a parked automobile outside a protective agency, in case the agency was employed by the nlace being burglarized- The two committing the burglary carried a set to receive the warn- ing. Capt. Hannigan did not dis- close instances in which the plan was used. Police identified the other three as Earl Wind. 16: John Whelahan, 17, and Raymond Witiinger, 16. Stored Valuables In Reichsbank TTCTEEN3ERG. May international military tribunal was told Tuesdar that Walttier_ FunS, bv arrange'inent with xiemnch Himmler. tamed the reichsbans into a huge depository for gold teeth, spectacles, jewels, -watches and other valuables seized .urora concentration camp victims. Thomas Eodd. United States prosecutor, showed a seven-minute, motion picture made in the reichs- oank vaults at Frankfurt, -where troous found scores of cases of such valuables a year ago. EmilL_ Funk, in which quoted as saying: Puhl was 'In the summer of 1942 Funk told me he had arranged with Himmler for the reichsbank to receive gold and jetrels from the SS. I asked Punk the source of the gold and ne replied it was confiscated property from the eastern occupied terri- tories but I should ask no further questions. Funk said we should go ahead but keep the matter abso- lutely secret. The gold was taken from Jews and concentration camp victims u-ith Funk's approval and knowledge." Funk, who now is presenting his defence, protested that he did not see such things in the reichsbank vaults, that "many people deposited valuables but the reichsbank was not authorized to look imo them."

YOUR HEAST WILL BEAT WITH A NEW EXCITEMENT! TONIGHT TBEKEYS OF THE KINGDOM JOSEPH L MANK1SWICZ AND AH Star Comedy "MISS POLLY" SOCIALIZATION OF WHEAT MARKETING MEETS OPPOSITION OTTAWA, May Bene Jutras (L., Provencher) renewed in the commons last night his opposi- tion to a nrivate member's bill which would" enable the Canadian wheat board to take over all wheat marketing machinery. The bill was introduced a few weeks ago bv- Hobert Fair (S.C.. Battle River) "and was brought up asain for discussion as the com- mons devoted the first hour of its nighs sitting to private members' business. Mr. Jutras said the way the bill was worded, the Canadian wheat board would have to expropriate practically all elevators in western Canada. In his hometown, rhere was an elevator operated by farm- ers. It handled grain at little ex- pense. If it was taken over by the board a civil service would have to operate the elevator. The civil servant would need a car and there would be other expenses. Mr. Jutras looked on the bill as a "pure and simple form of socialism of the most expensive breed." Walter Tucker i.L., said the bill would take away the wheat board's power to employ indepen- dent agents to market wheat. Plan To Modernize O.C. Steel Industry LONDON, May 8. (Reuters.t A plan to expand and modernize Brit- ain's iron "and steel industrv at a cost of fS7-i7.60Q.000) is prooosed by the industry in its report to the British government as a white leam that the British oSer is con- tingent on revision of the present Anglo-Egyptian alliance so that the defence of the Suez Canal would be entrusted to Just what is behind this Empire- rocking proposal? The British mili- tary occupation of Egypt began S4 years age. but we needn't go back farther than the beginning of the First Great War when Esypi in theory was still a province of Tur- key. As soon as the Turks entered the war on the German side. Eng- land deposed the Egyptian Khedive and established a protectorate un- der the Sultan Husseim Kamil. That protectorate lasted until 1922 and it not only bred strong anti-British feeling "but simulated nationalism. It was during this period that the British government canvassed the position to see what solution might be possible for a per- manent settlement of a dangerous situation. Now the British government pro- poses a new alliance which would place the responsibility for defence of England's interests on Egynrinn arms. It is imoortant to note" that experts say it will take five years for the British to implement such an alliance, and that" gives leeway to see how the thing works.

Manning Praises Alta. Bill Of Rights EDMONTON. May Alber- ta's bill of rights passed at the lasc session of legislature might well become a new "Magna Charta" for Canada, Premier E. C. Manning said in an address last night to the Edmonton constituency Social Credit association. Mr. Manning denied the sugges- tion made in some quarters that the bill means that a voucher simi- lar to "scrip" or some duplicate kind of money will be put into operation. The government, he said, wants the bill to go to the highest court in the empire for a ruling as to its constitutional validity, so thai no would have any doubt of its legality when placed in operation. The bill of rights was causing interest outside Alberta, which was as it- should be. he said. While it was an Alberta bill, the subject matter was of equal importance to anr other province. NOT SOCIAL CREDIT The bill was not a "cut and dried" Social Credit plan, as some called it. Neither was it a social security measure' or merely a program ol monetary reform. "It touches on all those but embraces much more." For the first time the government; itself was referring legislation of this nature to the courts.
