He also charged workers hesi- tate to come forward because of "fears of repercussions." Mr. Kostiuk admitted the AFL had no-information on specific cases, but said he was sure workers would talk about the problem with government agen- cies as long as their jobs were protected. Under questioning by Dr. Walter Trost, chairman of the board, and members Dr. S. B. Smith and W. A. Flook, Mr. Kostiuk said safety committees in gas plants have been set up without real authority to act; TORONTO (CP1 Dressed in the standard uniform of blue jeans mid work shirt, Harold Edwin Ballarcl, (19-.vcar.-old president of Maple Leaf Gar- dens, sat in the Don Jail today, pondering whether to appeal a three-year prison sentence for fraud and theft.
