FIVE-CENT PIECE CURSE TO CHURCH View of Dean W. W. Craig Before Ontario Synod of Church of England Kingston, May of the Canadian five-cent piece "was a curse to the Church," Dean w. W. Craig told the opening session of the Ontario synod, Church of England in Canada, here today.

When a man "puts a nickel on the collection plate that represents himself." he said. Dean Delivering the report on missions, Craig said of 15,190 confirmed persons and 11,885 communicants in the diocese, there were 4,329 regular contributors to church missions. That meant there were less than 20 per cent. of church bers contributing to the mission fund, he said. Bishop J.

Lyons, of Ontario Diocese, said it pained him to see the church standing still and making no progress, for "we have the capacity to do more than we are doing." Rt. Rev. R. J. Renison, Bishop of Toronto, told the synod service in St.

George's Cathedral that it is more difficult now to be a Christion in non-Christian lands than it was 40 years ago. Discussing conditions in Germany, he said. "Once more we see the incarnation of Caesar." P. G. C.

Campbell, treasurer of diocese, reported that for "the fifth consecutive year, attention is drawn to the very unsatisfactory state of the episcopal fund: in addition to the large overdraft, the capital itself has been reduced in five years by $3,653."

Radio Tariff Hearing Soon Ottawa, May Minister Dunning informed the House of Commons tonight the Tariff Board shortly will open its hearing on the bearing of tariffs on conditions in the radio industry and the related problem of radio patents. W.

K. Esling Kootenay East), had asked the Government's attitude regarding radio patents, Because of patents, a radio in Canada in some cases cost from 50 to 100 per cent. more one of similar pattern in the United States. said Mr. Esling.

A holding company held a series of patents which manufacturers leased, and cost of the royalty was tacked on to Canadian radio purchases. Transport Minister Howe reminded him the matter had been referred to Tariff Board in February, but Mr. Esling asked whether the Government could not take action under the Combines Act. It was almost incredible that a Canadian citizen could not bring in a radio from any foreign country, despite payment of duty and licence, without having it confiscated. Cases of such actions had been placed on the House of Commons records.
