The two girls, called Jean and Pat, met the soldiers in a Bel- fast bar Friday night and in- vited them to a candlelight party at an apartment. Once there, one of the girls left, say- ing she would get another girl. But she returned with two men carrying machine-guns. The gunmen forced the unarmed soldiers to lie face down on a bed and then riddled them with bullets. The wounded soldier was left for dead but later managed to get awpy.

"And that is no lean function." Steichen, who transformed holography into an art and till was experimenting with his amera in recent years, died lunday at his Umpawaug 3reeding Farm here. He would lave been 94 Tuesday. Perhaps best known for his Steichen also delved nto fashion photography and advertising and created a new vision of flowers, trees, insects and cityscapes. For his 1955 Family of Man exhibition, the pholograpliei .ravelled to 11 countries in search of material and later se- lected 503 pictures as "a mirror of the essential oneness of man kind throughout tlie world." The collection was seen in 63 and the book form sold three million copies. Another famous exliibition was Steichen's Road to Victory n collaboration with his jrother-in-law Carl Sandburg, ihe poet and biographer.

THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 60 Front Street West Toronto 1, Ontario Reader! Mail Limited Regulations have changed. As of January visitors coming to Canada must have an Employ- ment Visa if they intend to work here, or be registered with an Immigration Officer if they intend to visit more than three months. Those who arrived before January 1, 1973 have until March to register at a Canada Immigration Centre if they plan to stay beyond March 31. Some will already have legal permission to work here, or stay more than three months. They needn't register until this authorization is to expire. Exemptions All Canadian citizens and landed immigrants are, of course, exempt. All diplomats and visiting Armed Forces personnel performing official duties here are exempt. Foreign newsmen, visiting business- men, clergymen, and professional athletes don't need an Employment Visa, but they must register to stay here more than three months. There are other exemptions: full details are available at any Canada Immigration Centre. Coming to Canada to work? Visitors will not be allowed admission to Canada to search for work. Arrangements for an Employment Visa for a foreign worker can best be made in Canada by the Canadian employer. He should contact the nearest Canada Manpower Centre, which will determine whether Canadian workers are available for the job. The Employment Visa will only be issued if no qualified Canadian citizen or landed immigrant is available. Penalties Any violation of the new regulations is an offence, and could result in a fine of up to imprisonment up to six months, and removal from Canada. Summary From now on, all visitors must have an Employment Visa to work in Canada; or be registered with an Immigration Officer if they intend to stay here more than three months. More information is available at any Canada Immi- gration Centre, and at many Canada Manpower Centres. And the information is free.
