HOYT8' OWN CHARGE ACCOUNT free him from dependence on drugs He has translated this experience into a program that accepts drug-users willing to help themselves and offers them an atmosphere to bring things back together There is not much time for tripping or deciding what you're going to score for your next drug lift if you're splitting wood, turning over ground for a garden or trying to adjust the cranky carburetor on an old tractor GYATE has a half-way house in Ottawa where applicants for the program go for screening The city house also offers a gradual weaning for the drug-user A commitment to stay for two months is demanded before access to the wooded, hilly farm along the Gatmeau River is permitted The farm operates on a self- motivated basis No one is required to work but the demands of a primitive rural existence no wood chopped, no hot supper are usually enough to prompt the required effort The farm opened in its present location last fall and so far the object has been to acquire some stock, furnish the 100-year-old frame house and prepare the land, for spring When a person feels he has had enough of the farm and is ready to return to city life he can go back to the half-way house in Ottawa From there farm 'graduates" are given assistance m finding jobs, training and their own place to live The program is financed by a LI P grant and by contributions that those involved make for room and board out of welfare payments The farm is owned Divorce filed LAPORTE, Ind (AP) The wife of millionaire Charles 0 Fmley has filed for divorce claiming their 32- year marriage is irretrievably broken Shirley Fmley seeks custody of the couple's three minor children and a week for their support The couple has seven children by three of the staff and instalments on the mortgage are paid from their weekly salary So far the program has offered the opportunity to 70 people and about 60 have taken the option But, said one staffer "Sometimes they will walk six miles through the bush on a freezing winter night to get to a source There is nothing we can do for people like that "The neighbors are incredibly said Tony Mole "The first day we were here a neighbor came over THE BETTER HALF with 400 pound of oats and assistance of the neighbors is important since most of the staff have little practical experience in farming GYATE has applied for another LIP grant this year because they have decided to cut down on salaried staff They are hopeful ths will be the last year they will have to go to the government for assistance They are preparing an area for a large garden this spring, hoping to be able to sell their produce to nearby restaurants and stores By Barnes "Certainly I'd like to see you wear your dresses longer... at least two years longer."

to drop, according to this month's Herald survey of 54 food items But not by much A slim margin of 97 cents pulled the total down from last month's bill of 22 and set it at 25 Meat prices helped with the grocery bill, with no increases noted Four cuts remained at the same price and four went down in price ranging from four cents to 44 cents Eggs and butter took a notable step up, with an egg price increase of 13 cents and a seven-cent increase in butter prices The cost of a half gallon of 2 per cent milk had not changed at the time of the survey, but should show an increase soon The milk surveyed had been left over from the weekend and the store would not double-price the gallon Items which helped take the bill down a notch included celery and potatoes, both dropping a few pennies in cost, sugar went down from 25 to 23, and laundry soap was down from 85 to 79 The money-wise consumer could also save on several specials which could take the edge off the grocery bill Increases included fresh tomatoes, up 26 cents from last month's price, lettuce up four cents, spaghetti was up 20 cents and cooking oil climbed 23 cents higher than the March price European prices aren't as
