JOHNSBURY Paul Crepeault of St. Johns- bury, recently released from Windsor State Prison because his legal rights had been violated earlier this year, appears to be heading back there. Crepeault, 20, was found guilty in Caledonia County Court Tuesday of setting fire to a $50,000 Wheelock summer home a year ago. Owner of the property is Furman J. Fick, an art instructor in New York City. State's Atty. Sten Lium of St. Johnsbury brought one witness to the stand, Robert Call, 17, who said he, his brother Ray mond, 15, and Robert Blainey, 17, were with Crepeault at the time of the fire. No Defense The defense offered no evi dence or witnesses and Superior Judge Natt L. Divoll of Bellows Falls gave the case to the jury at 2:05 p.m. They returned in 40 minutes with a guilty verdict. The court appointed counsel Ernest Goodrich of St. Johns- bury, has until Monday to file motions on the case; Judge Di voll will sentence the youth next week but the date hasn t been set. Tried Once Before The first time the state tried to prosecute Crepeault on the arson charge, Jan. 30, the case was thrown out of court because two 16-year-old witnesses to the accident hadn't been informed of their rights. Shortly after that, Crepeault was sent to Windsor after a conviction on a breach of p e a c e charge. Immediately after his release a few days ago, he was re-arrested on the arson complaint. Bottled Publicity NOIRMOUTIERS ISLAND, France (AP) Game warden Jean-Pierre Gaborit was strolling along the beach when he spied a bottle bobbing in the water with a note inside. The note, signed with the name Michael Lamb, was written in six languages but the message was the same: Spend your vacation in sunny South Africa. the Wheeler School addition agreed to allow the School Department to take their proper ty, although a price for it had not been set. A final price was established by a three - man arbitration board on Sept. 27, and -the School Board paid this price on Nov. 4 when it received the deeds from the city attorney's office, The property owners are now requesting that (he School Board pay interest on the money owed them from Sept. 12 when the School Department started demolition of the homes to Nov. 4. They also are asking payment of property taxes on the land from the date the board acquired it. Commissioner Gordon Lewis maintains that since the price for the land was not set until Sept. 27, asking for interest from Sept. 12 is asking for interest on an undetermined amount of money. He suggested that Cannizxaro come before the Board and explain his position in recommending that the board pay interest from Sept. 12. On the issue of property taxes owed the city, Lewis had previously cited a Vermont statute which states that the owner of an estate on April 1 of a given year is liable for taxes, regardless of later transactions, as legal grounds for the board's re fusal at the Dec. 7 meeting to pay back taxes on the property. Board Chairman John Hayes said Patrick Leahy, assistant city attorney, had advised him that the statute does not apply in this case. Lewis said it could have been a case where the lawyers made an "honest mistake" and didn't arrange to pro rate taxes. But, he continued, the property owners were willing to wait for arbitration to get more money and that they could use a part of it to pay the taxes. "We need in get hard-nosed about the legal counsel we get from the city, or get our own counsel," Lewis said, The board had moved last week to return the tax bills to the city attorney's office. Further action was deferred until Cannizzaro could appear before the entire board and explain his recommendations. The board upheld its previous policy of providing supervision during lunch period for children who live a mile or more from school and in inclement weather for those living three-fourths of a mile away.

From $12500 Whtn In Stowo Vitit H. E. Shaw & Co. Homer Stuart Across tha Gaunter Suppose you were asked "What is the most constructive of all business activities?" What activity would you choose? Building? Farming? Something else? One good answer might be INSURANCE. For this industry is devoted to rebuilding and building America. Take the enormous highway construction program, as an example. Not one mile of our Interstate System would be possible without insurance guaranteeing performance, freeing contractors from accident liability, protecting workmen and jobs. Likewise, with the vast industrial and commercial expansion of recent years. Ask your banker. While he lends millions of dollars to buy homes and cars, and to finance businesses, he would be forced to stop most of his lending if Insurance didn't exist. While politicians claim and expect most of the credit for our flourishing economy, a closer inspection will show that Insurance is its fundamental backbone! Insurance may look like it is "protectng properties," but in the final analysis it protects something far more precious: PEOPLEI So tip your hat to the Insurance industry.
