      Crown Charges Manslaughter
      A charge of manslaughter would be laid today against Grant Rogers when he appeared in Gore Bay court in connection with the fatal shooting Sunday of Earl Baker, Crown Attorney E.L. Claridge said last night.
      Baker died in St. Joseph's Hospital, Little Current, Sunday night as a result of a bullet wound in the head. He and Rogers were deer hunting on Clapperton Island. They became seperated at dusk and Rogers apprently mistook Baker for a deer. The two men were friends of years.
      Cash bail of $5,000 or $10,000 property will be asked, the crown attorney said. E.C. Facer, of Sudbury, will act for Rogers, well-known tourist camp proprietor of Harbour Island.
      Mr. Baker was the third generation of his family to keep the Clapperton Island light. He is survived by two brothers, William, lighthouse keeper at Clapperton, and Norman, and two sisters residing in United States.
      Funeral was held Wednesday at Gore Bay with interment in Gore Bay Cemetery.

      Gordon Cemetery, Gordon and Allan, Manitoulin Island, #520.
