Neither side has been in- volved in negotiations since the union rejected a conciliation board recommendation last month. Prior to the announcement both labor and management in- sisted the other initiate the first action towards reopened nego- tiations.

Perhaps they don't really have to escape after all just adapt and adopt a philosophy like this young cat appears to have done. Herald photographer Phil Faulds caught this feline blissfully sleeping beneath Ihe post office steps, in a nice, warm ray of sunshine, on a soft spot of earth oblivious to passersby on the nearby sidewalk, the cars on the road and a person overhead moiling a letter, This cat has found a comfortable spot in the concrete [ungle and is making the most of it. governs income tax preparcrs will have their offices open Sunday, April 30, to accommodate cli c'nts. bvil the majority have indicated they will be closed.

Tbe subject was brought to council's attention by the board of police commissioners, which considers tbe payment made by the attorney-general's de- partment for the use of court- room facilities insufficient. In a letter to Ihe attorney- general's office, Police Chief Ralph Michelson points out that the city received a gov- ernment grant ten years ago which "is low if we are to pro- vide rent-free accommodations for the size of court operations which operate here. Surely the grant ten years ago was not intended to cover payment for these needs forever." Based on 8.726 square feet for the court room and related fa- from (lie original grant. Alderman Vera Ferguson suggested "perhaps more could be accomplished at the political level, since little has been done at (he provincial administration level."
