The Workmen's Compensation Board HAS ANNOUNCED NEW OFFICE HOURS FOR THE SUMMER SEASON Effective Monday, April 20 Board Office Hours Will Be 8:00 Chm. to 4:30 p.m. On Tuesday, September 8 Board Offices will revert to the present hours: 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mr. Trudeau was bombarded with questions on the latest unemployment statistics released Thursday which show that the jobless rate last month rose to 6.7 per cent of the labor force. During the extensive exchanges, Mr. Trudeau did not say that any changes would be forthcoming in the government's anti-inflationary policies. The prime minister said the seasonally-adjusted unemployment figures show that the present anti-inflationary policies have not hit hardest at the poorer provinces. On this sear sonally-adjusted basis, he said, the unemployment fate was down in the Atlantic provinces and Quebec. John Lundrigan (PC-Gan-der-Twillingate) complained that the use of seasonally-adjusted figures in comparing the unemployment rate with that of last September gave a distorted picture. He said Newfoundland's latest unemployment figure of 15.3 per cent is the highest since the province joined Canada in 1949. As soon as the Commons met Thursday, George Hees (PC-Prince Edward-Hastings) asked for unanimous consent to present a motion calling for action by the House on the unemployment situation. He did not get the required consent for a motion that the Commons "consider and recommend effective steps to stimulate economic activity, and thereby increase employment to a satisfactory level."

Fishing Ban Imposed On Two Rivers REGINA (CP) - Portions of the North and South Saskatchewan rivers have been closed to fishing because of mercury pollution, J. Ross Barrie, provincial minister of natural resources said today. Mr. Barrie said the South Saskatchewan will be closed from four miles south of Saskatoon to the Manitoba border and the North Saskatchewan from eight miles west of Prince Albert to the Manitoba border. The rivers meet about 60 miles east cf Prince Albert to form the Saskatchewan river which flows into Manitoba. Streams flowing into the closed sections also will be placed under the fishing ban from the point where they join the rivers to a point 500 yards upstream. The ban will remain in effect until Oct. 31 this year, said Mr. Barrie. Mercury pollution in the rivers is below the accepted level, he said, but the mercury content in some species of fish is too high. LENGTHY RIVER The Porcupine River, to Alaska, is 555 miles long.
