Calgarians have responded to a Red Cross appeal last weekend, when the supply dropped to below a week's normal requirements, he said. During 'the last week, Calgarians have donated more than units.

The charges against Southland, proprietors of 7- Eleven Stores in Calgary, were withdrawn following a district court ruling nine days ago that the controversial bylaw was not binding on city retail outlets. The ruling by Judge James Kidd said city council lacked the power to regulate the number and age of employees in overnight businesses. The bylaw was passed by council last November and banned overnight trade in stores other than gas stations, except where two employees over the age of 18 were on the premises at all times. E. P. Adolphe, chief crown prosecutor, said the charges could only be-returned to court if Judge Kidd's ruling were overturned on appeal by council. Gov't comes to aid of forest industry FRED PEACOCK EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government moved Friday to provide financial assistance to the province's forest industry following the collapse of lumber prices dur- ing the last few months. Industry Minister Fred Peacock, in a news release, said the government would initiate a two pronged program which offers loans and cuts interest rates. The plan, will "provide the necessary funds for the in- dustry to continue operations and stockpile inventories of logs and lumber until prices recover this recovery is ex- pected to be later this he said. 'Mr. Peacock said the program will help maintain employment among large and small operators, particularly in northern areas for native people and help limit rising welfare costs. CORRECTION!

Alberta has just received an extra billion dollars in oil revenues. Yet some of the province's most needed workers are forced to live on poverty- level pay. Our hospital employees. As a result, Alberta hospitals are becoming dangerously short-staffed. Some are at only 65% capacity. And your health services are suffering badly. The provincial government is unwilling to pay hospital employees a living wage. So they simply cannot provide for their families. Or cope with inflation. Consequently, they're leaving hospital work in growing numbers. hospital Many go to B.C., where hospital pay rates are much fairer. A cleaner can make a month more. Alberta hospital workers want, and deserve, similar rates. They badly need an increase now. But the province is holding back. Even though that extra money is in the treasury. The government is being very unfair with hospital workers. But they're also seriously jeopardizing your health care. So we're asking you to support our campaign for fair treatment. To us it's a matter of livelihood. To you, it may be a matter of saving your hospital service. Tell them you care about your health care.
