Mr. Justice Thomas Dohm rejected an application by con- struction worker Ross Alden, 25, who had been locked out, for an injunction to restrain Mr. Gaglardi and his staff from re- fusing welfare in such cases. The judge said: "Clearly the authorities have the statutory power to formu- late and direct the carrying out of policies under the social as- sistance act. "Looking at the statute as a whole and considering its fun- damental purposes, I am of the opinion that the legislature never intended that people who leave their employment as the result of labor disputes could then expect to be supported out of the public purse." Lawyer Lloyd McKenzie, who represented the B.C. govern- ment, had said Mi'. Alden was was refused welfare because of not refused welfare because he was not "destitute and suffer- ing." Tom Berger, Mr. Alden's counsel, had said the issue was not whether' Mr. Alden was destitute but that Mr. Gag- lardi's department "rejected his claim without it on its merits." considering Sparse Diet FRANKFORT, Ind.

BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. incnh beer cause ulcers, liver disease or anything? A Prolonged use of any alcoholic beverage iu large amounts can cause cirrhosis of the liver. There is growing evi- dence that in time it will also damage the heart, pancreas and brain, not to mention the increase in accident proneness. Q _ What nre t ll c good points and bad points of drink- ing beer? What is the safest al- coholic beverage? A Beer is a mild relax- ant. In moderation it often helps persons who are under- weight to gain but other foods are better for this purpose. One 12-ounee bottle of beer contains about 0.7 ounces of alcohol. P r sistent heavy consumption of beer can lead to alcoholism. Rather than speak of the safest beverage, it is better to speak of the safest blood alcohol level over l-iooth of 1 per cent.

At one-half o 1 per cent, you are in a coma Q Is alcohol a nervous system stimulant or depres sant? A Although often refene: to as a stimulant, it is a depres- sant. The confusion arises from the fact that, as the more the brain centres ar.e depresset and one relaxes, he may feel exhilerated. Q About how much alco- hol must be consumed by man who weighs 150 pounds to give a blood level of 0.15 per cent? A About eight ounces o 90-proof whisky, if consumed within an hour or less.
