Green Memorial Home Society board was unani- mously appalled recently at in- formation forwared by L. J. Wallace, deputy provincial sec- retary, which said in future admission to the home would require am elegibility means test. The trustees will request Mr. Wallace to meet with them on a planned visit to the area May 16. The society was organized to establish comfortable boarding residence regardless of means for. area people no longer able physically to maintain their own residence in the area. This was Dr. Green's specif- ic wish. It now has capacity for 30 residents, ranging from those comfortably financed to. those receiving government assist- ance, with board rates set on this basis. Operations are ten- uously covered at. present by this revenue. The home is unique in being capital debt-free with original building cost of two- thirds of it raised by the origin- ally sponsoring Legion branch area organizations, and friends of Dr. Green. The remaining third .was a government grant. The addi- tional for furnishing and equipping was raised by the society when the home was put in operation nearly 11 years ago. The board contends it has the right, under these circum- stances, to disregard the means test which might make ineligi- ble, up to one-fourth of the present residents, which disre- gards entirely the original ob- jectives of Dr. Green and the society. gate to public works crews the job of ridding the town of these pests. Council heard a complaint from Edward Sparks. He told of four occasions when dogs have bothered his yearling quarter-horses. Chief of police Gordon H. Hacking told council the own- e. of one of the dogs (which was impounded) became known when he came to redeem his dog. The owner of the other dog is also known. Neither was licensed. In giving the dog catching job to town employees, council was of the opinion that removal of a few packs of strays would relieve the situation. The problem is not serious enough to warrant the expense of a full-time catcher, council decided.
