Mr. Justice W. R. Sinclair drew from a ease in 1855 to support his ruling in a claim for damages recently brought by an Edmonton dis- trict farm laborer against a former employer. Donald Lloyd Jinkerson, em- ployed to care for a herd of pregnant mares used to pro- duce urine for pharmaceutical manufacturing, claimed that he was slandered when ac- cused stealing quantities of the urine. Daniel L. Lybbert, who with another fanner employed Mr. Jinkerson, testified that he questioned the man about loss- es of the substance, noticed over a period of time. Mr. Jink- erson testified he was accused of and had denied the theft. Mr. Justice Sinclair said that a defamatory statement was made against the farm laborer but ruled that Mr. Lybbert was genuine in his belief of the theft and, citing the case in 1855, that the accusation was privileged because the farmer had a material interest.

Heddon, president, told the an- nual meeting here. Oil production at the com- pany's Athabasca oil-sands pro- ject in Alberta to June 15 was about 50 per cent ahead of that of the similar 1903 period and more than 3Vi times that of 1968, he said. Average daily production dur- ing June to date was more than barrels, slightly above the company's authorized daily out- put rate, Mr. Heddon said. Shareholders approved a new financing plan in- volving the reclassification of unissued preferred shares into common shares and the purchase by Great Canadian Oil Sands' par- ent, Sun Oil Co. of Philadelphia, of of the new common shares at each. The Sun Oil purchase gives it ownership of 95.4 per cent of Great Canadian's issued stock.
