C4U5 funeral VANCOUVER (CP) -The ovens are cold and empty, the four big dough-mixers are silenced, the conveyer belts are idle and 280 workers are out of jobs as a result of the recent closure of the, $4 million Mc-Gavin-Toastinaster bakery in Vancouver. The Vancouver plant which had 25 per cent of Vancouver's bread market and 75 to 80 per cent of the bun market closed March 1 when 125 bakery workers walked off their jobs in a dispute over job security. Four days later Allan Mc-Gavin, president of the Mc-Gavin-Toastmaster bakery chain of 11 plants from Na-naimo B.C. to Winnipeg, announced that the plant would not reopen. He said the Vancouver plant has made a profit in only two of the last 10 years-in 1965 following the closure of a plant in Victoria and in 1969 when a competitor, Weston Bakeries Ltd., was on strike. He denied suggestions that he had been forced to close the plant by businessmen from Eastern Canada where the ownership of McGavin-Toastmaster is held jointly by Maple Leaf Mills Ltd. and OgUvie Flour Mills Ltd., the latter controlled by John Labatt Ltd. CITES PROBLEMS A series of problems prevented the Vancouver plant from becoming a consistently profitable concern Mr. Mc-Gavin said. There are for example "too many ovens" in Vancouver "and there always have been He said there is a general decrease in bakery-products con sumption even though the popu lation is rising. People were get ting more weight conscious and steered away from bakery goods. "Restrictions on baking hours here and high wage rates have added to the company's problems. "When the men left the job March 1 we did not intend to close down." But he said the company would have lost 25 per cent of its production by March 3 and 50 per cent by March 10, permanently or temporarily to other bakeries. Arthur Griffith president of Bakery and Confectionery Workers? Local 468 said the men walked off their jobs after speed-ups were introduced and layoffs took place-at least 22 layoffs or retirements since Jan. l with no replacements. Mr. Griffith said repeated requests from the union to reverse this trend were ignored by the management.' Some McGavin-Toastmaster employees have since found jobs at other bakeries. CALGARY (CP) - The provincial psychiatric hospital at Ponoka was not designed as a maximum security facility and is far from escape proof even though it houses some of the most dangerous men in Alberta, the hospital's administrator says. Ralph Shellenberg, the administrator of the hospital 110 mites north of Calgary, said there are 51 men in the maximum security ward, seven of them convicted murderers. He made the comments on File 71, a documentary program prepared weekly by CFCN-TV. UNHEALTHY SITUATION Mr. Shellenberg said he also was concerned because first of- fenders, committed to Ponoka for 30-day psychiatric examinations, are forced to share accommodation on the ward with hardened criminals. "It's not a healthy situation but until a suitable facility is built there's no other place to put them," he said. Quin Fate, the ward's head nurse, said the unsuitable design does not allow constant supervision of all the patients. She said some of them are "desperate" to get out because they face long sentences. "We do have an occasional elopement," she said. "By this I mean people who are able to break a screen, or who are masters at picking locks. They can open a door and be gone before you realize it." She said it was fortunate "we don't have more problems than we do." COLD PLACE Adin Stafford, the hospital's business manager, said the heating system in the 60-year-old ward is worn out and, during cold spells, the inside temperature at times drops to 48 degrees. "It's a harsh statement but I believe it to be true that our present ward is not good enough to house people in," Mr. Stafford said. Dave Williams, the personnel manager, said the hospital, which has a total population of about 760 patients, employs only one certified psychiatriat and he is involved mainly IB administration. "Right now we could do wttfc seven psychiatrists," he said. Part of the staff problem it the remote location of the facility because at the province's other major psychiatric hospital at Oliver - a short drive from Edmonton - there now are two full-time and five part-t i m e psychiatrists treating about 900 patients, Mr. Wit liams said.

Tast buck' in memoriams warning issued TORONTO (CP) - Arthur Wishart, minister of financial and commercial affairs, issued a warning today to people who may be tempted to make a "fast buck" through pyramid selling. He said in a prepared statement that it has become "disturbingly clear" that many of these entering pyramid selling have been unable to recover investments ranging from $50 to $5,000. Mr. Wishart said the interim report of a government committee which held hearings last year enfranchise dealings "makes alarming reading." The report is due to be made public next month. In pyramid selling, one person with items to sell sets up a number of persons who buy the items from Mm. They in turn sell to the public, and a pyramid-like structure emerges with the director on top and lower-level distributors farther down. Mr. Wishart said these companies are usually more "interested in selling distributorships, rather than the products." Mr. Wishart said a potential investor should carefully examine the product and the price at which it is being offered, and should insist on receiving written promise that he can return unsold goods. He should also visit the company's manufacturing facilities and determine how many distributorships have been sold in ms area. ) GREEN - In fondest remembrance of our beloved wife and mother, Anne Braybrooke Green, who passed away, very suddenly, two years ago today.

McLaws, president of the Law Society of Alberta. In a letter tabled in the legislature by Attorney - General Ed Gerhart, Mr. McLaws said accrued accounts may exceed moneys on hand by the end of March but the accounts will be paid from money which will be payable by the government to the law society. He said confusion arises between the use of a cash or ah accurate method of accounting. "The obligations of the plan for solicitors' fees is comparable to a running account, and it may be that adjustments will have to be made from time to time following discussion between the law society and the government of Alberta in the future." NO SERVICES DENIED Mr. McLaws said that leaving aside the question of divorce, no person who is qualified for civil legal aid has been denied the services of the plan and that no person who is qualified for criminal legal aid has been denied services. Dealing with divorce, Mr McLaws said the law society has b e e n assured by its legal aid committee that the necessary certificates have always been issued in divorce where there is danger to the physical or mental health of a spouse or children. In divorce cases where no urgency exists, certificates have been delayed or refused with advice to apply later. No water yet COALDALE (HNS) -The Sunrise Ranch, operated by the Lethbridge and District Association for Retardates, will be permitted to hook Into the town's sewer; lines when the north side extension program is carried out. Officials from the ranch are interested in constructing a home for adult retardates. For this, they requested water and sewer services from the town. There is no firm committment to the Sunrise Ranch for the 6455 water services. What does it take akeyou seethe importance of safe The other eye? We don't wantyou to get hurt but-no one can escape responsibility when there is an accident at work. It's no defence for employees to blame employers for inadequate safety practices. And it's not good enough for employers to shrug off an accident with a "he-should-have-been-more-careful" attitude. You must always ask yourself if you are obeying all the safety requirements. If you are, and hazards still exist... complain. And keep complaining to the right people until something is done about it. After an accident it's too late to figure the cost of safety. What price would you put on your eye? Or arm? Or life. Your safety is one of our main concerns in the Canada Department of Labour, particularly if you work within Federal jurisdiction. Canada has a big stake in making sure no one ever loses the capacity to earn and maintain a decent standard of living. It's vital to you. And it's vital to our economy. That's part of what we're all about. Canada Department of Laboor Hon. Bryce Mackasey, Minister J. D. Love, Deputy Minister ;
