Regret was expressed at the last meeting of council that no action has been taken by the department of environment to prevent continued pollution of the air and river by the piles of slag. Each time the wind blows, residents in the west end of town are plagued by heavy clouds of the coal dust. During the spring run-off and during rain the Crowsnest River, passing at the base of the -slag piles, becomes satur- ated with coal dust. For almost .five years the town has endeavored to have the piles grassed in, similar to other slag piles in tha district, but to date nothing has been done. More district on page 6 C6uncil approved an -agree- ment between the town, John Chapman, coach of the 'Pass Red Devils, and the 'Pass Red Devils, for the rental of the arena for a hockey school to be held the weak of April 23.

And want capable, productive, committed employees, you should be hiring the handicapped worker. Firstly, the word "handicapped" is misleading. When a worker is disabled he has many skills remaining that maximize his ability and are not affected by his disability. In that sense, he is not handicapped at all. He is an equal competitor at his skilL And he asks no favors. Most disabled people have developed new skills. They show incredibly high standards of productivity. They appreciate their jobs: And they are stable and reliable. They have a little extra to prove. All they ask for is the chance. A good businessman can spot a solid investment. Hiring tfie disabled is smart business. Our ease histories prove this. Contact our Vocational Rehabilitation Department and see what we have to offer. Then take advantage of it.
