The situation Monday, aftei workers were ordera back on Uio job at worUi of construction was confusing, with no clea picture of how many actuall returned, or were called bac by Ihe CLRA's 593 contractors. The cement industry eallcx back 50 to 60 per cent of it workers and truck driver's, said Ed Lawson, president of tin local teamsters joint council But the order to go hack stipu lated that all employees shoulc return, Mr. Lawson said. He checked first wiUi Labor Minis ter Leslie Peterson that Uie order meant a 100 per cent return. "We have been telling al those workers who have no been called back by Uie compa nics Uiat they should return Uiemselves in order to cornplj with the said Mr. Law-son. WANTS PAY "We say that if there is no work for them they must receive eight hours' pay under a guarantee in Uie old agreement. The companies say they are not going to pay Uiese workers their guaranteed pay." Rav Haynes, secretary of the B.C. 'Federation of Labor which is supporting the stand of five unions who refuse to go back and accept binding arbitration, said the situation is a legalistic nightmare. "Peterson's move doesn't sound as if it is conducive to jetting settlements and that is what the name of the game said Mr. Haynes. "There are all kinds of people who have left the province and others who have other jobs and I don't know how the procedure is going to work. "As for defying this law, pro-, hibition laws were flouted and ignored because they were ridiculous and unworkable. There have been all kinds of labor laws since this government took over but this legislation is the ultimate because it is the beginning of putting us out of business." There are no chances of a general strike in British Columbia in support of construction workers, William Dodge, acting president of the Canadian Labor Congress; said in Minister P a n a y i o t i s Plpinelis of Greece died in Athens of heart failure.

Producer TORONTO (CP) "Luck" was responsible for Nigel Nil-pier-Andrews' position as producer of an important CBC show. "1 was in the right place at the right time." said the 28-year-old producer. Mr. Napier-Andrews was appointed producer of the TV program Elwood Glover's Luncheon Date in June, 19G9. Since then the show's popularity has increased and the CBC has decided to try an experiment. Luncheon Date will be shown coast to coast for the months of September and October, and if the 90-minute show does well, it will be continued on that basis. Mr. Napier-Andrews started his career with the CBC as assistant to the then TV program director, Bruce Raymond, and when Mr. Raymond lost his job, so did he. "After that I just hung around the CBC doing and when he was offered the Glover job, Mr. Napier-Andrews jumped at the chance. In the last year, he feels, Uie calibre of guests on the show has improved. "Before, there were too many people talking about things like charities and amateur theatres. "Our best guests now are people talking about things that concern Uie home, the family-problems like drugs, child welfare, juvenile courts, which interest the 35- to 45-year-old housewife." The show has also added Date Lucky music so it will be "easy and Mr. Napier-Andrews said. At Uie age of 17, he dropped out of an expensive British boarding school. "I couldn't believe it when I saw Uiat film, If. It was exactly like my school." After leaving school he travelled to Kenya and became sub-editor of: a weekly paper in the town of Nakuru. On his return to England, It is with sincere gratitude that we express to our relatives, friends and neighbors, our appreciation and heartfelt thanks for the many spiritual offerings, cards, food and acts of kindness which lightened our burden of sorrow during our recent bereavement. We especially wish to thank the doctor, the nurses at the Bow Island Hospital and Father John for all the care and services given our beloved husband, father and grandfather.
