The plan, as outlined by Fi- nance Minister Edgar Benson, has a number of serious short- comings, Mr. Notley said in a prepared statement. The corporation would oper- ate on its own without public control, with four of the 21 di- rectors representing the gov- ernment while the other 17 would presumably be drawn from the business leadership of Canada. As a result, the corporation would not act as a direct agent in the over all federal plan- nnig process. "The experience of Manito- ba's massive public commit- irent to The Pas pulp mill fi- asco should convince even the federal government that a busi- ness dominated CDC is not the answer." Mr. Notley said the corpor- ation will be limited to the to- tally inadequate role of a giant mutual fund. "To regain control of the economy, the CDC must have at its disposal a specified por- tion of the reserves of all fi- nancial institutions in the coun- try, including trust and finance companies' and other lending institutions.'1 some time back.

Fight crippling effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis One of the common types of arthritis is rheumatoid, which is an inflammation of the joints. Another's osteo arthri- tis, which is caused by wear and tear. The principles of heatment are entirely differ- ent. Large doses of aspirin are used in rheumatoid arthritis to eliminate the inflammation and thereby protect the joints. Just enough aspirin to control the pain is adequate in osteo-arth- port a joint with a light balf- cast or mold of the extremity to provide support during rest, then at frequent intervals re- move the s pi i n t or cast and gently use the full range of the joint without putting any se- vere weight on it.

An early start makes the difference in making this a gen- erally successful day. Select ciauy chores that put your muscles to often prevents serious crip- pling. This is why such pa- tients should see their doctor early and follow his advice to the letter. Even this does not always suffice to prevent crip- pling. Emotional upsets can aggra- vate arthritis, so it is import- ant to avoid them if possible. This has to be kept in balance, however, because one person's illness cannot be allowed to be used as a tool to destroy the rest of the family's life. Cortisone and related nor- mones are sometimes used in treatment but they are in ef- fect only superaspirin and usu- ally the disease returns as soon as the hormones are discon- tinued. Most authorities prefer to use them only as a last re- sort. The side effects of hor- mone therapy for arthritis linat their application. Patients with rheumatoid ar- mal position and prevent formity of the ankle joint. Of course, too much bed rest is bad, so the usual treatment is alternating rest and gentle activity during the day. It is very important to regu- larly work at maintaining the rull range of movement. Even in a very short time a 3omt can lose its range of motion and it is hard or impossible to correct. In preventing good posture in standing and sitting are very important. The patient should sit in a straight- back chair and not slump. Proper fitting shoes help to prevent deformities. Some doc- tors prescribe special shoes. At the least they should be a well- fitted, oxford type shoe with a "straight last." The litfle things in rheuma- toid arthritis often make difference between Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Kelly John- son age 9, of Des Moines, Iowa, for his question: Cuckoo When your parents were young and going to school, they were told that animals are ruled by instincts. In those days, sci- entists said that i n s ti n c t ex- plained just about everything that animals do. Most people thought that instinct was a sort of built in voice of Mother Nature. It told the birds and other animals just what to do they had to obey. For example, they thought'that in- stinct instructed most birds to be devoted parents but a few other birds were instructed to place their children out for ad- option. In the past, people used the word instinct to explain a mul- titude of animal mysteries. But modern scientists do not use the word at all. This is because they have solved the basic mystery of animal behavior. The secret is a marvelous chemical with the amazing name of deoxyri bonucleic acid. The shorthand for this outlandish word is DNA It is a miraculous biochemica that governs the life of every animal _ what he looks like and what he does. DNA in structs certain cuckoos to place their eggs in the nests of othe birds. Nobody ieally knew what in stinet was like or how it work ed. But modern scientists d know what DNA molecules' ar like and even how their atom are arranged. They also where its blueprint pattern came from, how it gives the or ders and why every anima must obey them. A new animal begins whe cells from two parents merge Each new animal inherits h its from each parent, is there in a bird's egg and the embryo develops, a copy c its DNA is included in cverj new cell. It orders every as the young bird grows i shape and size, its color an just how it should behave at times. A computer is a non-livin machine. A human expert pu in data to program it to do th or that. Although DNA is a rr raculous living substance, some ways it acts like a supe computer. It programs all bir to mate and lay eggs. It i strucls most birds to build nes and become devoted paren The cowbird and certain cue oos are instructed to male a lay eggs. But their DNA is n programmed for parenthood. After mating, the fema place their eggs in other bir thritis should get plenty of rest to 12 hours daily. This is particularly true during tire periods of fever and inflamma- tion. The rest helps to decrease or eliminate the inflammation. The inflamed joints should be nests There they are adopted rested, of course, but that does UillCl ClltC fcrvbii life and being an. invalid. jiucuu, not mean left motionless.

But as a our lovely North Ameri- an cuckoos build nests and aise their young chicks with oving care. However, our na- ve cowbird never builds a nest f her own. Like the cuckoo in urope, she places her eggs in ;her bird nests and leaves her hicks to be adopted by foster arents. Andy sends a World Book Globe to Renee Hawkins, age 8, of Clover, South Carolina for her question: Vhat do ants do in the winter? In the ant world, the busy eason ends before the first vinter frost. Ants lose their pep- >y energy in cold weather, but even the icy frost does not kill them. In fact, some people say hat ants can be frozen through he winter months and come rack to life in the spring. In any case, in late fall the busy ittle workers gather together and find themselves a cozy >lace to spend the winter. Those .hat nest in ant hills dig deep- er tunnels, down where maybe Jie frost will not reach them. Sometimes they find winter shelter in a fallen log or a hol- low tree. Wherever they go, the bitsy bugs huddle close togeth- er. They lock their skinny legs together and wad themselves in a tight ball. Maybe the f r o s t reaches the ones on the out- side and covers them with ice. But when spring comes back to the world, the ice mells and the tiny sleepers wake up and start their busy duties. Worker ants may live through seven winter seasons; the queen mo t h e r lives 15 years or more. son 2 Mr Waters; 3 Woman killed at Cochrane COCHRANE (CP) Mrs Donna Halowski, 25, of Calgary was identified Monday as thfi person killed in a single-car ac- cident 25 miles west of the city Sunday.

North's ten of spades became established as sn entry. South derided to work on dummy's heart suit and, after playing the top two honors, he ruffed' a third round with the fve of snades, West discarded a club. The North hand was reen- tered by leading the seven of spades over to the ten, and a fourth heart was played, men East followed with the jack, declarer permitted him to hold the trick, discarding a diamond from the South hand. The shrewdness of play may be noted when consider East's plight at this point. He was looking at a dummy that contained an es- tablished long card in hearts with secondary controls in both minor suits as entry cards. East tried to put off the evil moment by lead- ing the ace of diemonds, but South allowed his adversary to win this trick also, as he threw a club. East switched to a club and West took the third trick for the defenders with the ace of that suit, but the North hand was now es- tablished to claim the bal- ance. Declarer's discard on tba fourth round of hearts is the key play. If he ruffs, it will be with his last trump and now, when a club is led to- ward the king in dummy, West will come up with tha ace and play the ten of dia- monds thru dummy's queen his partner to take four tricks in that niU. ;
