Pickets were called off and employees will start back to work at midnight tonight, Hage- man said.

Severance pay would increase 50 per cent for employees dis- placed because of work or office relocations, a stumbling block in early negotiations. Also prov- ided for, said Hageman, is a form of job security for persons with five or more years' senior- ity who are bumped to lesser positions by more veteran em- ployees.

Woman sails Atlantic for bath and a steak Dry spell hurts CALGARY (CP) Tempera- tures in the 90s without signifi- cant rainfall for up to two weks have taken their toll of outhern Alberta crops, the Al- berta Wheat Pool reported to- day. A devastating hail and wind storm struck central Alberta last week, laying waste thou- sands of acres of farmland, the Pool said in its weekly crop report. It estimated damage at million.

A light rain was falling as a coast guard boat towed her 30-foot sloop the last eight miles. Her parents, Henry and Mary Milnes-Walker, greeted her. They had arrived in New- port last Tuesday to wait for Nicolette and were joined by some 50 cheering onlookers as she stepped down the gang- way. Nicolette last saw her par- ents June 12 when she left the port of Dale on the tip of Wales. Nicolette sajd she was in danger only once, when she ran into a two-day storm about two weeks ago and 500 miles from her goal. She ssfd she feared the storm might drive her back toward England, but it sub- sided.
