Some years ago the bylaw governing town shopping was thrown out by the mayor and council, leaving merchants to operate their own business any time of day or night. The decision to throw the by- law out followed a number of meetings between Ray- mond and the District Cham- ber of Commerce, mayor and town council and the mer- chants. At that time it seemed no one could agree on shop- ping hours for Raymond. On a recommendation from Ihe chamber, the bylaw waa done away with by the mayor and council in session. The merchants have now agreed in a special meeting at- tended by merchants only on shopping hours. Raymond peo- may shop six days a week as well as Thursday evening. There was also a .slight change in the hours as they were set for fl a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thurs- day 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. the two games and ceived the player award.1' er he was operating overturn- The Blades did not fare as ed. well as the Bladettes as they The jury, under tlx? direction lost llicir final game to Crows- of coroner Earl Tabor, heard j nest boys.
