Its expected will be required to fund already-ap- proved projects through 1975- 76.

More than million people in Can- ada arc suffering from it one out of four bctwetn the ages of 35 and 55 and it is respon- sible for ball of the deaths in Canada. More than billion is spent annually on the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Twenty thousand babies are born in Canada with congenital heart defects each year, said Dr. Gardner and 110 per cent can be corrected by surgery. Twenty-five years ago almost none of them could have been cured. ORGANS NEW and USED WE TAKE GRAIN! The farm hand is becoming aii agricultural specialist, say Canada Manpower experts.

The actual vote was 70 per cent in favor and 30 per cenl against. An estimated (185 stu- denis voted, out of who were eligible to cast ballots. The. turnout is regarded as extremely large by student or- ganizers because student votes at LCC usually attract only about 12 per cent of the student body. Some 75 musing students still have to be polled before over- all figures are known. The family and administra- tion have been advised of the vote and those who have react, ed have been in "violent opposi- tion" according to Darrel Han- son, business education repre- sentative on the student's coun- cil.
