Electors in N.S. to vote Tuesday By JOHN SOOSAR HALIFAX (CP) Nova Scotia's Liberal government un- dergoes a major electoral test in a byelection Tuesday in an area where it has concentrated much of its development effort since taking office almost three years ago. Three parties have waged in- tensive campaigns in rural Guy- County where lumber- ing and fishing are the mains- tays in a psor economic picture. The government appears de- termined to wrest the seat from the Progressive Conservatives and hold it up as an indication of its province-wide popularity before a possible fall general election. A victory would also give Premier Gerald Regan's gov-' eminent a working majority in the 46-seat legislature. The gov- ernment now has 24 seats, the PCs 19 and the NDP two. There is one vacancy. .Almost the entire Regan cabi- net has stumped the lumbering villages and fhising hamlets promising better representation, better roads and more industry like a million oil refinery now being built on the Strait of Canso which separates Cape Breton Island from mainland Nova Scotia. TRIED FOR COMMONS The seat became vacant last fall when Angus Maclsaac re- signed to contest the federal election against Privy Council President Allan MacEachen in Cape Breton Highlands-Canso. He lost and some observers speculate that the manner of bis departure from provincial politics may have lost the party some supporters in the provin- cial riding. Mr. Maclsaac was following in the footsteps of his father, A. T. (Tando) Maclsaac, who won the provincial seat from ths Liberals in i'JCO. This time the Liberals have A. M. Cameron, 34, a native vi ho left for a business career in Halifax and returned only after he was nominated. Premier Regan has hinted at a possible cabinet position for Mr. Cameron. Tory candidate D. E. Cortis, 45, is a merchant and the NDP nomines is W. H. Sugg, 52. a fish-plant worker. He promises full-time representation. deserve to pay less for fire insurance They do at Abstainers'.

If you just read an isolated paragraph cf an MPs speech in Hansard it is easy to get the wrong impression. Here's one from Reward Grafftey No change WASHINGTON (AP) The United States unemployment rate held at five per cent of the work force in May, the govern- ment reported today. The bureau of labor statistics said that the job picture was es- sentially unchanged since last November although the econ- omy was in the midst of one of its most vigorous expansions in history during that period. As in April, the number of people that the bureau counted out of work totalled 4.4 million. Where bilingualism is concerned, I want to work as a Canadian in this House, along with the Social Credit members, the New Democratic Party members, ths Liberal members and my own colleagues. But let's be realistic; you know as well as I do where my leader, the honorable leader of the Op- position (Mr. Stanfield) stands with regard to bilingualism." There has been a sharp Im- provement in the availability of information from Prime Minis- ter Trudeau's office since two veteran journalists were added to the press office several months ago. Pierre O'Neil, who came from La Presse, and Courtney Tower, formerly with Maclean's and Time magazines, invariably reply to reporters' inquiries within minutes of the call. How about this one from John Harney West) on his opinion that in the Commons, at times, there are "jackasses braying on both Perhaps we could taSe some comfort from the fact that a nation that brays together slays together." When an MP feels strongly about an issue, as Jean-Robert Guuthier (L-Ottawa East) does about bilingualism, some exaggeration is bound to be ut- tered from time to time.

The Edson Kinsmen Club in- tends to erect signs bearing these words at both ends of a 25-mile stretch of highway 16 where traffic accidents have claimed countless lives in- cluding those of three Alberta cabinet ministers. "It's time something was done and as a service club we feel it's our Dale Halterman, a member of the club, said in an interview Friday. The club decided to take ac- tion after a two car collision Sunday took two lives, includ- ing that of a 16-year-old Ed- monton girl. The signs, -with a black skull and crossbones painted on, will be located at the eastern out- skirts of Edson at a railroad grid and 25 miles further east where the highway becomes dangerous because of curves, narrowness and sharp falloffs of highway shoulders. j Mr. Baltcrman said the signs j will go up with or without pro- vincial government permission. "We were going to approach the government but the RCMP here have been trying to do the same thing and have run j into so much red tape we de- j cided we'd just erect them and it would be up to the govern- ment whether it took them Len Werry, Progressive Con- servative telephones and utili- ties minister, was killed on the stretch of highway last February. David Ure, a Social Credit agriculture minister, killed in 1953 and Norman Will- mere, a Social Credit lands and forests minister, in 1S65. Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne said tenders will probably be called in July to straighten a 10-mile portion of the highway east cf Edson, con- sidered the most dangerous portion. As for the Kinsmen signs, Mr. Copithorne said he will look at them when they arc erected and "if they are going to do some good we'll leave them."

That's on top of injuries. With the knowledge gained in re- cent years, a lot of that can be stopped. That's not a dream. It's a fact. Many of our highways simply aren't designed for today's traffic. Insurance people are probably more aware of this than anyone. We see accidents every day that could have been avoided with better roads. That's why we are constantly working with government, commun- ity and safety groups to advance highway safety programs. Now. Reducing the number of accidents is the best way to lower insurance costs.
