Stiff winds, tinder-dry grass and hot weather fanned a near- ly-dead prairie fire back to life Monday afternoon five miles northeast of Standoff. Toe re-kindled fire was speed- ed on its way by 20-mile-per- hour Minds and was control- led only after it reached dirt section roads, more than two miles from its origin. The fire consumed nearly five sections of prairie, miracu- lously skirted several danger- ously dry grain fields and com- pletely encircled a house, but j caused no damage. Attempts to control the pro- gress of the fire by plowing fire-break lines seemed to meet little success and it was! generally believed that had there been no section roads, the fire would have gotten hope- lessly out of control. Firefighters said their ef- forts to fight the fire had not been properly co-ordinated and the fire got out of hand because BO one was sure what the other people were doing.

Takahashi, driver may Residents of the Lfithbridge East constituency who are in a city hospital will be unable to vote in the Aug. 30 pro- vincial election, although no such restriction will apply to Lethbridge West voters. The three city hospitals are located in the Lethbridge West riding, and there is no provision in the Election Act permitting establishment of a poll at the hospitals for Leth- bridge East voters. The anomaly results from the fad. Lethbridge was re- cently divided info two con- stituencies, and the provin- c i a 1 legislature failed to amend the Election act in re- gard to dly hospitals. No such restrictions apply in Ed- monton and Calgary, where polls for all ridings are es- tablished in hospitals. Polls can be established at the three Lelhbridge hospi- tals from Lethbridge West vot- ers if JO eligible voters from that constituency are in hos- pital election day. Bill Todd, returning officer for Lelhbridge West, said to- day it is an "mfair situation" that hospitalized voters from Lethbridge East will be de- prived of their vote, but he added nothing can be done about it until the Election Act is amended.

Mr. Hellycr's speech dealt al- most exclusively uilh eco- nomic theory a carefully reasoned explanation of his views on solving Canada's prob- lems. He presented a three-point program. First, laxcs must be cut to restore Canadians' confidence in the economy and get tilings mov- ing again. Next, the money supply must be increased. llr. Itellyer sin- gled out housing mortgage money as a prime need in this area. Finally, wage and price con- trols must be established in the rigid or monopolistic sector of the economy. Wage increases, he said, would be tied to in- creases in workers' productiv- ity. Business and lalwr would be. free to set prices and wages, but only within broad guide- lines set by Ihe government. The aim of these moves would be a goal Mr. Hcllyer made freijueul. reference lo throughout his speech full employment and zero inflation. Service Department Special!
