B. Hayes, president of the Engineering Insti- tute of Canada, told members of the local organization: "Don't let's be shabby in our when he referred to the attitudes of labor and management- in present day industry, as he spoke to members of the Lethbridge branch of the En- gtneenng Institute of Canada in the Marquis Hotel Tuesday night. He etopped in the city in the course of his annual tour of all branches of the institute across Canada. Mr. Haves said that there had been trouble between labor and management for years. ''Ap one time management is in the driver's seat and cracking the whip, and then the same thing happens with labor." Saying that- It '.vas just, a continu- ous cycle, the engineering president questioned why management could not make a "noble acri make an effort to "open their hearts a even while preserving their keen minds. He urged that employers forget the "dirty tricks" that labor has played, and try to sec a pace that would lead to better co-opera zion. Must Produce "While emphasizing that he was not anti-labor. Mr. Hayes said that it was impossible _ to continue shortening hours and increasing "Neither labor nor manage- At the Theatres Complete shows: "Uncle "Colonel Effinghani's Last complete show at "Detective Kitty "To Have and Have Last complete show at "Ding Dong Prescriptions Accurately filled and sent to you PROMPTLY McCAFFREVS DRUG STORES 331 5th St. S.

Engineers must do that to help fheir own country and the world. Speaking of the part that Hali- fax, his native citv. had played in the Second War. Mr. Hayes said ihat the city had been wrap- ped in secrecy for years. Everyone did a great deal wards winning the war, he de- clared, but, asserted that Halifax had done many great jobs during the war, jobs which they could see beiag done, and from which they could derive great encouragement. This encouragement was not present to buoy up the spirits of many people "in other parts of the Domin-1 ion. parts far distant from the! points where the strength of their] efforts were actually applied. carried cut their jobs well, in spite j of the fact that liiev coulcl set have the pleasure of seeing their accomplishments, he asserted. Tne prairies did a wonderful job In raising a great many sailors to serve with the Dominion's wartime fleets, fee said. Ship Protection of the most valuable jobs completed in Halifax was the equip- ping of ships so that they were invulnerable to the magnetic mines, Mr. Haves said. With respect to the 50 "destroyers transferred to Britain bv the United States in exchange for naval bases, Mr. Hayes said that the first eighc of these destroyers were fitted out in Halifax so that they would not be bothered -with magnetic mines. The job was car- ried out in four days, so speedily that the -work did not in any way delay the transfer of the ships to a hard-pressed Britain. Halifax saw such jobs being done, and people there got a great deal of encouragement that was denied other parts of the country, he re- peated. In closing, the president of the organization urged that the engin- eers determine that they would do evervthing nossible to unite man- kind" with mankind. "In doing this we can be much more than just he declared- Mr. Wright Dr. L. Austin Wright, general secretary of the Engineering Insti- of Canada, also addressed the local audience brieflv. He praised the Lethbridge group for their fellowship, saying that in that re- soecfc they were second to no other group in "the Dominion- Speaking of the Dominion asso- ciation, he said that the member- ship at Dresent- is over of which number more r.han are students and juniors. He said that it -was the largest professional organization in Canada. He referred to the Canadian Civil Service, and told of the efforts be- ing made by the. Engineering Insti- tute of Canada to assure that en- gineers in the civil service receive a decent living wage. Thanks of the Lethbridge branch to the visitors was expressed by P- E. Kirkpatrick, president of the local branch, and J. M. CampbelL Out-of-town visitors to the meet- ing included: J. B. Hayes, president of the Engineering Institute of Canada; JDr. L. Ausliii TV right.
