hampered by a sohrtage of gas and
were able to work only part time. Yesterday
operation was on approximately
a fifty per cent, basis. Relief is promised
by the gas company. The company
declares that because of the recent
cold spell and the consequent
drain on production, it has been impossible
to build pressures back to
normal in the two or three days of
mildness.
Modern fire escapes are being placed
on the walls of the Fairmont hotel today.
The electrical and power installers
are on hand and are started
on their part of completing the build-1
