SET FIRE Prison officials said the four women are alleged to have set fire to one of the rooms to winch they have been confined, attempted to undress a female nursing supervisor, barricaded themselves in a room to press their demands for release and smashed windows in their room. The women, Mary Aslaforoff, Tina Vera Posnikoff and Polly Chernoff, originally were confined at Kingston Pen- itentiary in Ontario, where they went on a prolonged hunger strike that eventually resulted in their release. They were sent back to pri- son after being in the forefront of demonstrations against John Verigin, leader of the rival Or- thodox Doukhobor sect.

Dr. Roy said that depite the hunger strike, the women's physical condition "is not alarming. In fact, all four of the women have gained weight." He said the women are being treated by a full time physi cian and by registered nurses. The gentle nudger... Peoples Jewellers button. Even the most astute scheme can. fall a little behind schedule.
