Mr. CLEAVER:

This company was incorporated in 1934 under the name Ancient Foresters' Mutual Life Insurance Company. It has been found in carrying on the operations of the company not to be advantageous to have the words "Ancient Foresters" in the title. Therefore it is requested that the name of the company be changed to Toronto Mutual Life Insurance Company.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time. SASKATCHEWAN FLOOD CONDITIONS

QUESTION OF DANGER TO OXBOW AND OTHER DAMS


On the orders of the day:

Ernest Edward Perley

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. E. E. PERLEY (Qu'Appelle):

I desire to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner) based on a report appearing in the western press, which states that the Oxbow dam is threatened by floods; that a rush call to Harold Beatty of Spears Airways sent 1,000 pounds of sand in bags to the district. It was reported that the water was going over the top of the dam. The bags were carried to the district in two trips and dumped over the side of the plane as near the town as possible. My question is whether they were successful in saving the dam and how many other dams have been threatened or are likely to go out because of the flood.
