It was on the basis of these stomach contents that the Crown at the 1959 trial placed Tniscolt, then 14, with the girl about the time of her death. Truscott himself was not pres- ent as tlie high court began its hearings into the sex slaying of the 12-year-old girl at Clinton, Out. Defence lawyer G. Arthur Martin told the court he did not want Truscott in the court when the witnesses arc heard. Trus- cott would be in the court only when bo gave evidence. First witness called by the Crown was Henry John Funk, a biochemist with the attorney- general's crime laboratory in Toronto. He examined the mur- der victim's stomach contents, but was not called at the 1959 trial because the Crown had failed to seek leave to call more than five expert witnesses. AUTHOR PRESENT Among the press corps was Mrs. Isabel LeBourdais whose book, The Trial of Steven Trus- cott, was the main factor in get- ting tlie cabinet to order the re- view. James Byrne, Liberal mem- ber of Parliament for Kootenay East, was present in the public scats.

FINAL REPORT The Herald's final 1966 crop report presented today shows that the South's farmers this year: Set a new record for aver- age .yields throughout the re- gion 34.2 bushels per acre for wheat. It's the highest re- gional average for Canada. The previous record average for a single year was 29.5 bushels per acre, set in 1965. The long- time average for this area (south of the mainline of the Canadian Pacific Railway) is 18.3 bushels per acre. Total wheat production for the South this year is bushels. This exceeds the pre- vious 1952 record by bushels. There were more acres of wheat grown in southern Alberta 14 years ago, however, when this region was tied much closer to a straight grain economy. Timely moisture made the big difference for the South's farm- ers this year. A total of 16.28 inches of rain fell in this area from April 1 to Sept 30. The 60-year average is 10.84 inches for the same period. The tables also carried on this page show at a glance how southern Alberta grain produc- tion has fared. Figures also show Alberta and prairie provinces production which are early Sep- tember estimates.
