T. FROST ................................ PUBLISHER Take Your Pick A flurry of last-minute activity last Fri- day finally resulted in a fair-sized field of candidates for City Council positions. We hope the voters of Cheney will take advan- tage of that fact by turning out in large numbers for both the primary election Feb- ruary 13 and the general election March 13. An added incentive for voting in the pri- mary will be the decision on a special levy and bond issue for the Cheney School Dis- trict, with most of the money which would be derived to go for a new high school• Though one of the City Council positions, that of councilman-at-large for a two year term, is uncontested, voters will choose be- tween two candidates for two of the posi- tions, and will have their choice of three candidates for one post. Ideally, we'd like to see at least three candidates for every council position. The more candidates we have, the more likely the voter is to want to make a choice. This not only results in a large voter turn- out, but it makes the citizen take more inter- est in his government---certainly a healthy sign. • Spangle News • By Virginia M.

All league games were played after working hours• Pete Jones, a pipe fitter em- ployed by the company, in- jured his leg sliding into third base during a league softball game• He was off work for a month, so he filed a claim for workmen's compensation.

Unfortunately he is not, the court held• Workmen's com- pensation can be paid only for injuries sustained in the course of employment. While Pete was participating in a ball game he was engaged in rec- reation activities outside the scope of his employment, even if it might be true that his playing ball was of some bene- fit to the company.
