"Cheaper by the died in Phoeuii, Arizona at the age of 93. Quebec ghost town RAPIDE BLANC. Que. This village no longer exists. All 225 townspeople sealec their homes, hauled their be- longings into moving vans am traveled 39 miles through the bush to La Tuque last summer Progress turned Rapidi Blanc, 200 miles north of Mont real, into a ghost town. Hydro- Quebec, major employer anc landlord in the village, is auto mating a sub-station that harnessed water power dnce 1934.

"They were good years here ]ike a family." he said, remem bcring the ski-tow he fasWonet for local children and the days he was their ski instructor.

CAVE SEVERENCE PAY But Hydro became more and more hesitant about pouring a year into village up- keep only to see their employ- ees drift away to city jobs. The electric utility finally doled out four weeks salary as severance pay to employees, paid about in moving costs and transported 60 re- maining families to jobs at other Hydro posts. Not all were unhappy at the move. "I liked our years here, but it's no place to spend a life- said Use Beaulieu, mother of a five-year-old child. Wives and mothers found it especially hard to fill the days with diversions other than sports, fishing or touring around in snowmobiles. Poor gravel roads, heavy snowfalls and the slow pace of living added to the burden of young families. Yet the village is not yet com- pletely dead. Workmen will con- tinue to install machinery for the automation until next fall. 'So smoke still wisps out of Die inns chimney as lormcr resi- dents pass through on work shifts. Seek wolf mate ST.
