Mr. Egan, his wife and tV.t-f> r'- riven soV -| fN?ir possessions in Doncaster, England so they could start a new life 250 miles west of Edmonton. He was to work for Mclntyre Porcupine Mines Ltd. But arrived here just as the company announced it was going to lay off 150 miners. The family has been living in the Grande Cache Hotel at company expense. A member of the manage- ment staff, however, contacted Kaiser Resources Ltd. in Sparwood, B.C., and was told that company was looking for miners. Three men from Kaiser arrived in Grande Cache Thursday, looking for 45 to 50 miners for the operation there. Mr. Egan was hired Saturday. He and his wife will be moving in a day or two to a three-bedroom home in Spar-wood, a community in the East Kootenays, a few miles west of Kicking Horse Pass. That community, of about 3,000 people west of Leth-b"ir,~e. 's "!so --i r>ev> tor~\ similar to Grande Cache, and in similar mountainous area.

The Commons was to start the week with a debate on a government bill to remove the ceiling on the amount of money the treasury can advance to the Unemployment Insurance Commission (UIC). After getting that, following predictably strong Progressive Conservative opposition, the government must ask the House for approval of spending until March 31 of about $1.3 billion over the about $16.5 authorized by Parliament last year. The' New Democrats, who hold the balance, have said they will vote for both measures. So there is almost no question of the Liberals being overthrown. But the NDP will join the Conservatives in criticizing the government during the debate on the $1.3 billion in customary supplementary spending estimates. The government will have to take it until the opposition chooses to shut up. In 1968, the Commons changed rules to set aside cer-tain days for debate on matters chosen by the opposition. These opposition days were, to replace prolonged debates on so-called supply bills, such as the current supplementary estimates. The supply debates would be brief. But the government also agreed that if there were no op- Tivo face death {or stealing phone cables ACCRA, Ghana (AP) - Two Ghanaians, 24 and 25 years old, were sentenced to die before a firing squad for stealing underground telephone cables valued at $800. They were found guilty by a military tribunal Thursday. Stealing telephone cables is a treasonable offence and punishable by death under a government decree. Lawyers for both men have pleaded for mercy. position days before supply was requested, then there would be no limitation on supply debate. ' This session, the government has not yet allocated debating days to the opposition. So it must come hat in hand for approval of its supplementary estimates, realizing the opposition probably will take up to three days in criticism before approving them. NKEDS APPROVAL The bind comes' in part because the government already has spent $540 million in advances to the UIC and it vail need more money for that purpose by the end of the week. Those advances were made by cabinet order while Parliament was not sitting and were over and above an $800 million ceiling set for such advances under the government's own legislation. So, first the government was to present today its bill .to lift that ceiling for third and final reading. The Conservatives will oppese it but the NDP will support the government. Then comes the bill seeking the $1.3 billion for spending, not only on the UIC but also the Lo-cal Initiatives Program (L.I.P.), manpower, health and welfare and other items. As of Friday the Conservatives had filed nine notices of opposition, which means there will be nine votes before any final approval. NDP CRITICAL As most of the items in the estimates are things that the NDP supports, it will vote with the government. But that will not preclude NDP members from criticizing the government for the way it has operated. All this talk will delay continuation of the capital punishment debate until perhaps Thursday. But the Commons still may pass the government's bill to extend the partial ban on hanging for another five years through second reading before the end of the week. From there, if approved in general, it would go to committee where several attempts may be made to change it. Meanwhile, MPs will stew over the killing of the second policeman in three weeks in Toronto. There is some feeling tha* that killing could have an effect on the way some MPs will vote.
