With a simple unreasoning joy as Hank Aaron set 715 flying. All this from the American networks, but the same combination of the great and the ghastly from our own and world-wide chains. Watch television? Millions of us do, hopefully with some selectivity. There are some who wouldn't have a set in their home and that's fine too. For those who confess with a certain inverted snobbery that they "hardly ever sufficient is the succinct comment of Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe Pfui! Display Eskimo culture at show OTTAWA (CP) The Eskimo culture of Greenland, similar to that of Canada's far Morth. is depicted in a display ol historic artifacts and current economic development in Greenland currently at the National Archives here The show, organized by the Danish government for the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, and loaned to the northern development department here, was officially opened by Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien and Danish Ambassador H. Hjorth-Nielsen The exhibit will be on public display until May 19. when it will be dismantled and shipped to St. Paul, Minn In one glass case are a number of tupilaks carved from ivory walrus faintly menacing hand-sized devils once used by Greenland Eskimos to cast a curse or spell on an enemy. When asked to describe the mythological beings, the Greenland Eskimos carved them in ivory to depict what they had in mind. The carvings now in existence are, therefore, all modern ones While Canadian Eskimos did carve charms, theirs were intended more to please gods and evil torces, rather than to cast spells or curses. The display consists mainly of panels of maps, charts and photographs, with detailed captions. LAYS LARGE EGGS The whale-shark lays the largest eggs of any living creature.

Horner forecasts beef price hike EDMONTON (CP) The closure of domestic cattle markets to beef from the United States will mean substantial rises in Alberta prices, Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner said Tuesday Beef prices in Edmonton were about the lowest in six months and one packer was reporting trouble in moving his meat. Although Dr. Horner foresaw no immediate price rise in the supermarkets, he did expect the effective ban on U.S. animals and meat to cause an increased slaughter price "probably fairly quickly." The minister said he was pleased with the federal decision to ban U.S. cattle that have been treated with the drug diethylstilbestrol, effective Tuesday. He predicted that supermarket prices should remain stable for about three weeks. "If the consumers are smart, they will get themselves a side of beef pretty quick." Dr Horner said of the ban: "It's about time. I don't know why they didn't do it months ago, before the damage spread so far through the production system. "If the supermarket price goes up in less than three weeks, then, it'll be a rip-off by the supermarkets. You can be sure that we 11 be watching out for that." The minister said he believes increased beef prices are inevitable and will largely be the result of the chaos that has dominated the industry since last fall. Slows down VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul will reduce his scheduled activities during the Holy Week on the recommendation of his doctors and closest aides, the Vatican announced Tuesday.
