Nov.- I he fact that nearly half a million bodies can be accommodated in one .square mile does not appear to be somclhini! tl'-al people should be overly-concerned with, but they should be. Consider for .1 moment hmv many living people can occupv a square mile and you will see the seriousness of the situ.rion. A nrrtnal iMorey apartment building can house up to people, with each family consisting of four people. If bn.-ic. floor .--pace of such a building is square feet, then '-en con put enough 10-storey apartment buildings in a squrre mile to accommodate people. And, that is allowing 30 per cent of the space for streets, driveways and other space requirements. then, if the apartment buildings were built 20- storcvs high, people could live in one square mile of space. If tliev were 30 storeys high. 2.3-12.7S8 human beings could live in the same space. In the world's most heavily populated people are dying a! the rale of approximately a year. So, in Hist four years one square mile of land is taken up by ne-.v And, are.i that is used is almost always prime land. That is. not just any area is suitable for a graveyard.

At the rate people arc dying in a year- it would lake approximately 50 years to populate one grave- j-ard as large, us the entire city of Lethbridge. The number of people who will die in Canada by the year will require 11 square miles of cemetery space. The situation is naturally a perplexing problem for ad- ministrators of large cities. It is difficult to give priority to the dead over the living, but something must be done with the bodies and there is just so much useab'.c space to go around. Although we will never reach the stage of being pushed Into the ocean by graveyards, the problem of the growing need for cemetery space is one that must be solved. More people are dying now than ever More and the death rate will continue to climb in proportion to our soaring popula- tion figures. C'nion. Be a sport.

Canada Pension Plan has ceiling for contributions on annual earnings Unlike national income tax, the Canada Pension Plan has an earnings ceiling towards which contributions are made, says J. C.

Disability pensions are paid when a worker is incapacitated regularly, and prolongedly or when his problem is likely to result in death. To qualify for a disability pension in the period February, 1970, to January 1976, a con- tributor must have contributed to the plan for at least five whole or partial calendar years in tlie period January. 1966, to December, 1975, he said.

Jack G. Stothart, director of the Lacombe Research Station in charge of selection of the government animals, said the big problem was to make cer- tain of the health standards for the animals while they were still in Italy. i He said he inspected many I Italian farms and ranches and only 13 passed Canadian health i regulations which would allow international Chianina trade. i Import permits were filled i for 13 private breeders and the 1 Canada department of agricul- ture filled 10.

The amount of a contribu- tor's disability pension consists of a flat rate component amounting to S27.06 a month plus 75 per cent of the current value of the monthly retire- emnt pension, said Mr. Bou- chard.
