Commenting on the Canadian Par-
liament's recent 2-1 vote of confl-
dence in the Liberal government of
Prime Minister Mackenzie King,
Prof. Lionel H. Laing of the political
science department in a Daily intdr-
view yesterday said, "The vote dem-
onstrates once more that Xing can
successfully maneuver through a po-
litical crisis, the conscription issue
which several years agowould have
been political dynamite, with his
prestige as a political strategist un-1
French Opposition Shown
The outcome of the vote (143-70),
as expected, contained a large per-
centage of opposition by the French
delegation," Prof. Laing said. "It be-
came clear long before the vote was
taken that it 'wouldn't result in the
overthrow of the present govern-
ment," he added.
Briefly sketching the background
of the present conscription issue in
Parliament; Prof. Laing pointed out
that the expenditure ofmanpower on
the Western front exceeded the or-
iginal estimates of need. Previously,
he said, the Canadian army overseas
was composed entirely of volunteers,
while selective service was used only
for home defense; until now this
system proved adequate, as there was,
an ' unusually high ratio of enlist-
ments, including many French-Ca-
Canadian Troops Needed
The expendable character of fight-
ing, he declared, speeded up in the
Northern European area, however
necessitated an increase of Canadian
troops. This report made by former
Defense Minister J. L. Ralston Oct.
f8 in Parliament, Prof. Laing said,
created a stir which eventually led
to Ralston's resignation on Nov. 1

position of Minister of National De-
fense, according to Prof. Laing, "cre-
ated a stir, with tIre demand from
some sections that the government
be more insistent on conscription and
put in effect the measure contem-
plated as a possibility ever since the
1942 plebescite."
"In some parts of Canada," he con-
tinued, "this was felt to be a con-
cession to the French-Canadians who
historically had been unalterably op-
posed to the conscription measure.
"By adopting a policy of partial
conscription and admitting that the
situation was more imperative than
they first believed, King and Mac-
Naughton complicated the situation

at the eleventh hour," Prof. Laing
said, thus making the issue subject to
In conclusion Prof. Laing empha-
sized the fact that without a date
set for next election of Parliament
and foreknowledge of political shifts
which may occur before then, it is
difficult to forsee the outcome of this
decision. "Whether or not King has
been able to steer through the poli-
tical implications of this issue, will
be known in time, for many resent
his political opportunism. The ver-
dict of the electorate will be given
sometime next summer when the five
year term of the present Parliament

The Teachers Insurance and An-
nuity Association calls attention to
the following provisions for holders
of retirement annuity contracts, and
concerning insurance contracts ap-
plied for after Dec. 9, 1941:
1. When the holder of a premium-
paying retirement annuity contract
enters a military, naval or air force
of the United States, Canada or
Newfoundland, he may cease prem-
ium payments on the contract with
the assurance that he may restore
the contract by simply resuming
premium payments (without pay-'
ment of the "omitted" premiums) if
he does so at the close of such service
or within six months thereafter. At
that time he will be expected to sign
an appropriate agreement as to re-
duction of the contractual benefits
corresponding to the omitted prem-
iums, and the premium resumed will
be on the same actuarial basis as it
would have been if premiums had
been paid continuously.
2, All new life insurance policies
applied for- after Dec. 9, 1941, will
contain a provision excluding the
risk of death resulting either (a)
from service outside the continental
limits of the United States, Canada,
and Newfoundland in a military,
naval, or air force of a country at
war, of (b) from operating or riding
in any kind of aircraft, except as a
fare-paying passenger on scheduled
airline flights. In event of death
under such excluded circumstances,
the reserve under the policy, less 'any
indebtedness, will be payable to the
beneficiary. This procedure applies
to all kinds of newly-written life

insurance policies, including collec-
tive insurance, but of course not to
life insurance policies previously
written without any such clause or to
any annuity contract. Among some
groups of applicants particularly
likely to enter the forces, the total
amount of insurance the Association
will write on an individual is reduced.
