Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, FibrKflry 15, THE UTHMIDCI HHAID 5 face AH, SPRING! You just have to look at Ed Gigot's to know that the first whiff of spring from the daf- fodils blooming on the doorstep of his Vancouver home was worth waiting for. Even through a severe (by West Coast standards) winter in which a record 57.9 inches of snow was recorded at the Vancouver International Airport.____________________________________ Mental telepathy experiment tried HOUSTON (AP) Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell tried a personal experiment in mental telepathy during his flight to the moon and back, a space agency spokesman said here. Mitchell was reported to have tried to send symbols by mental telepathy to a Chicago man who claims to be a spychic. A spokesman in the Lunar Re- ceiving Laboratory here said that Mitchell confirmed recent- ly that he did conduct an exper- iment in mental telenathv. b'it that the spaceman declined to discuss it further. The experimen was de- scribed as a personal project and not formally sanctioned by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The spokesman said the ex- periment in no way infringed upon M i t c h e 11 's assignment duties. Mitchell and fellow astronauts Alan B. Shepard and Stuart A. Koosa are isolated in the labo- ratory for the next two weeks and are not available to report- ers for direct contact. In earlier reports, Mitchell, who has a lifelong interest in psychic phenomena, was said to have concentrated -at pre-ar- ranged times on symbols ar- ranged in an order known only to him. A Chicago man, identified as Olaf Johnson, was to have con- centrated at the same time in an attempt to receive the sig- nals. Mitchell and Johnson are to compare notes later to deter- mine whether Johnson received a telepathic signal from the as- tronaut. The proof of the experi- ment will hinge on whether Johnson received telepathically the symbols in the same order in which Mitchell concentrated on them. Shepard, Roosa and Mitchell started talking with experts about their lunar adventure Fri- day after getting only a few hours' sleep in their isolation quarters. They came here bearing rocks from the Fra Mauro high- lands of the moon, a mountain' ous formation scientists believ may harbor rocks dating from the birth of the solar system 4 billion years ago. During two weeks of quaran tine the astronauts will reyie every phase of their millio mission. Surplus expected in Sask. REGINA (CP) Provincial reasurer D. G. Steuart Satur- day announced a small surplus is expected in the 1970-71 fis- cal year instead of an antici- pated million deficit. Mr. Steuart, in a white pa- per on the province's economic and financial position, said the government had budgeted for revenues of million and expenditures of million. Current estimates indicate the expenditures actually will exceed the budgeted level due to accelerated public works and highways programs aimed at stimulating employment. But revenues will exceed es- jmated levels, Mr. Steuart said, primarily as a result of increased payments from the federal government. the clean, lean taste of protein (reamefles AOOMI Decimal change problem LONDON (CP) Decimal Day descends on Britain Mon- ay in an aura of confusion and pprehension as murky as the London fogs of a bygone era. One story: As a foretaste, a north London ruit dealer marked some gra- pefruit "one shilling he latter the new-pence equiva- ent of the shilling. A woman customer said: "I II ave the five with no pips." It may e? may not be true but t's an illustration of the fairly jeneral state of mind among Britons who will be saying good- lye to old shillings and pence Monday and getting into some- .hing of an approximation of the Canadian currency system. The pound stays but it has been divided into 100 units of jennies. Some of the complications are that the new penny is worth 2 2-5 of the old there will be a new halfpenny wortn about the equivalent of a current penny; and the current sixpence or tanner, worth 2% pennies of the new money, is going to stick around -for two years or so. Stores will be allowed to oper- ate in either decimals or the old system. But not interchange- ably. SOME CONFUSION" If you go into a decimal store, you'll get your change in deci- mal money. The reverse will be true for customers in pounds- shillings-pence establishments. The banks and stock exchange are taking four days to get their staffs indoctrinated and have been closed since Wednesday afternoon. Railways, buses and the Lon- don underground are switching over, but at varying times, so it will pay to take both types of money along for the next sev- eral days. No one is quite sure whether lares will go up or down on any given line. Coincidentally, the price of postage stamps is going up Monday to meet the cost of a wage increase for employees several months ago.

Firestone of the University of Ottawa calculates that im- provements in Canada's jobless situation may be delayed unti" 1972. In an assessment published in Daily Commercial News and is sued by the university Friday Dr. Firestone says the federa government may be overly-opti mistic about the extent of the productive pickup expected later this year. Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son has estimated growth in output may reach an annual pace of 8% per cent in the sec- ond half of .this year. Dr. Firestone, an economic researcher and adviser in the federal government during the 1940s and 1930s, says growth through the whole year may measure about S'A per cent and that would be insufficient to produce any improvement in employment. ience, will go up to three new pence or 7.2 of the old pennies. This may sound on the baf- fling side but it's only an aca- demic question at the moment. No mail has moved in Britain since Jan. 20 when postal work- ers began a strike for more pay. From the looks of things, the public will have sorted out the mysteries of the decimal be- fore having to buy stamps. STILL SOME Some other minor inconven- ences: Car drivers who buy their au- tomobile licences at post offices have been warned that the strike is no excuse for being caught without one. In London; they have to go to an office of the Greater London Council, where the lineups now are 1% hours long. Prices in public toilets for women are sure to go up. The conventional "spend-a-penny" locks will not accept the tiny halfpenny and will have to be worked by the new penny, more than doubling the price. A big public worry in a coun- try where buyers watch their pennies is that traders may un- obtrusively slide up prices on the unsuspecting shopper. The Guardian describes this as the most serious cause for concern. It adds: "The government must reiter- ate its strong disapproval of any attempt to exploit the public's uncertainty and ignorance of the new currency system to push up prices."
