He said he is confident of a third term. The Liberal premier said that he blames the federal Liberal government for unsold wheat plugging grain elevators and piling up on farms and that Ot- tawa's apparent preoccupation with Quebec has been to the detriment of Western Canada. Asked if the federal govern- ment's reputation is suffering, Mi'. Thatcher said the national Liberal party is in trouble in the West over wheat, economic difficulties and the proposals of the recently-published white paper on taxation.

GENEVA AF'l Brushing aside Bernard Cornfeld's claim to voting control, Investors! Overseas Service said today it will wage a proxy fight with the mutual-fund group's founder at a special stockbrokers meeting to be called in 45 days. IOS denied Cornfeld's claim that he has won back control of the company and said it is "en- tirely confident" of winning a sharehpldre's' proxy battle. Cornfeld told a news confer- ence Sunday that he already has "irrevocable" proxy votes representing 51 per cent of the prefernec shareholders equity of j IOS and that in a few days he f will have the necessary two- i thirds, entitling him to appoint j a new board of directors with himself as chairman. At a news conference today, j IOS hit back strongly at the takeover bid and accepted Corn- feld's demand for an exlraordi nary preferred sharcholdeis; meeting, probably hi Canada. Under the laws of Canada, where IOS Ltd. is registered, any shareholder with more than j a 10-per-cent stake in a com-: pany has the right to call a stockholders meeting. Cornfeld still has about 13 per cent of the IOS equity. Cornfeld, one-time penniless U.S. immigant who made a fortune out of the incredible IOS success story, resigned as chairman of the company when he disapproved a scheme to res- cue it from difficulties which shook the financial world last spring.

Reaching a peak size of three to four pounds, it slowly begins to lose weight after 20. Maybe that's why today's college stu- dents are so much smarter than their parents.

TRY A TERMITE Ever wondef why steak is priced so high? One reason is that the 590-pound carcass weight of a live steer yields only about 140 pounds of steak. The rest consists of roasts, 170 pounds; ground beef and stew meat, 155 pounds; bones, fat and water, 125 pounds. Nature note: Termites, a major pest to householders in North America, live up to 30 years, or about the life of a long mortgage. But in parts of Africa, where termites build mounds 12 feet high, the in- sects are regarded as highly nutritious. They are used to flavor many native dishes. Thsre are few diseases as uncommon in some ways ag the so-called common cold. M e d i c a 1 researchers have found this complicated ail- ment- can be caused by at least 100 different viruses.

Omiiiplex Members Selected EDMONTON (CP) Three members of a team that is to advise the developers of a pro- posed combination stadium, sports and convention centre have been selected by city council's utilities commit- tee. Two additional members are to be selected later. The ad- visers are to help the three de- velopers who will be submit- ting detailed proposals for the project, called omniplex.

Gilmer said revenue totalled million, an increase of nine per cent over the S63.2 million hi the corresponding period last year. Operating expenses for the first half of this year rose 16 per cent.

Butish bird expert G. V. T. Matthews, weighing in with nine footnotes in a scholarly journal, defends his theory that the pigeons Jook in the sky, compare positions of the sun, make complex mental calculations, and fly right. The challenger, with 13 foot- notes and a diagram, is Wil- liam T. Keeton of Cornell Uni- versity, Ithaca, N.Y. Armed with binoculars, a compass, a stopwatch and 20 pigeons, Keeton conducted ex- p e r i m e n t s which he says prove that the way the birds view the sun has nothing to do with then1 path. The American challenger explains it in Nature, a Brit- ish science journal. He kept half the pigeons in blacked-out coops in Ithaca so they couldn't see the sun for 11 days. The other half could look at the sun as much as Uiey wanted. Since the sun shifted posi- tions during that period, the blacked-out pigeons should have flown off the wrong way when they were released from a tire tower 53 miles distant. But they winged their way to Ithaca the same as the other pigeons. So Matthews is wrong. Or is he? The Briton argues that Kee- ton's birds had been shown all the landmarks from the tower to Ithaca, so they didn't have to take readings from the sun. strength dropped to five mem- bers in the IDCIi election com- pared witli a full house of 17 in 19G5. With 15 of Alberta's 19 federal scats held by Conservatives, party officials are optimistic about the next federal campaign there, but Uiey say that organi- zational activities in the neigh- boring provinces could use a shot in the arm. WIN WOULD HELP If Peter Lougheed could lead his Conservatives to power in Alberta, when an election is called there, they say, this would result in the necessary injection of enthusiasm. The next Alberta provincial election will be the first since Premier Strom took over the iocial Credit government in De- cember, 1968. In the previous [eneral May, 1967 Social Credit party, led by former premier Ernest Man- ning, won 57 of the 65 seats. But the seven seats won by he Conservatives represented a )ig breakthrough since they had none at dissolution. Since Mr. Strom assumed off- ce, the Conservatives have added two more through byelec- representing gains rom the Social an- ither member, elected as an in- dependent, lias joined their ranks. When Mr. Stanfield goes to Alberta next month, he will bo visiting the Cochrane farm of Clarence Copithorne, the former independent member.

He will speak to the combined men's and women's Canadian Clubs of Calgary, at- tend a reception in Camrose and a barbecue inSedgewick. Party spokesmen say the visit was not specifically designed to assist the provincial party "but we're aware that tilings look en- couraging there and naturally lie results are very important to us." As a possible provincial elec- :ion draws near, say spokes- men, "we'll of course do every- hing we can."
