Strikers take a psychologi- cal moment for the exercise of thelv privilege. The heilibridgo police probably thought the time a good one from a selfish [mint of view, but tiieira was un unworthy action, and one which should be cemrsmned. Men who take positions of public trust nin! responsibility must not desert them for private purposes. It would bu proper that a law should be passed making it a criminal offence for men io act as the Lethbriugo police force did.

Skin Their Own (Toronto Globe) The Toronto Telegram speaks of the possibility of a Latirier-Monk- Bourassa alliance. There is no such possibility. The Conservatives must skin their own skunlts.
