CANADA: Millions for Research

Prime Minister George Howard Ferguson of Ontario, under whom that province went "wet" last year (TIME, July 4) announced, last week, a new honor for Sir Joseph Wesley Flavelle, famed Canadian banker-industrialist and chairman of the Imperial Canadian Munitions Board throughout the War.

Sir Joseph has now been appointed, said Prime Minister Ferguson, to administer a fund of $2,000,000 recently created to further industrial research in Canada by the Dominion Government and the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, each of which contributed $1,000,000.
