"Wood alcohol is used so much in industry there is no reason to restrict its sale," Dr. Cantor said, adding that it comes ,under the same class as poisons and any quantities sold must be clearly marked as poison.

CONVENIENT PARKING LOT FOR CUSTOMERS BY AL ROWE A master carver now is at work in Edmonton reproducing a Canadian, coat of arms for use as Alberta courtrooms the "symfiol of authority" long missing in courtd throughout the province.

For some months, Arnold Mikei-sons, of 8315 73 Ave., has been at work on the project. Mr. Mikel- sons, who learned nis crati in nis native Latvia, first started on cherry wood, but abandoned it as too hard after breaking three chisels. T think I'll work with something softer," he told The Journal "possibly silver birch. I have promised to have the work finished in 12 months.'!.. Mr. Mikelsons' creation will be used as a master mould from which coats of arms will be made for all, courtrooms in Alberta. The process used will be to pour a heated compound of rubber and gelatine over his carving, which can then be peeled off "like a rubber glove." Into the "glove" will be poured plaster of paris, and the required number produced.
