RESERVES ESTIMATED The prepared by the firm of Tcuche floss and Co.. of Montreal, was released Thursday and estimated the province should have reserves of million by the end of March. The Social Credit party hnd said it left the Conservative government, which look office late last summer, reserves of about million. Party spo- kesman said this figure was based on estimates by Provin- cial Auditor C. K. Huekvalc. The difference in the figures, said the report, cams on "ad- justments" through inclusion of debts in the form of debentures issues by the universities com- mission, provincially-o w n e d hospitsls and the Alberta He- sources Railway.

LONDON (Ileuler) I'sy- chiatrist Howard Book has discovered a simple way to tell whether people are sexy at their noses. People with big noses are considered better lovers than those with small noses, he writes in the British doctors' newspaper Pulse. Dr. Book, who has studied the subject, also says your nose gets warmer and often becomes red and flushed CNR advised not to buy Alta. rail EDMONTON (CP) Cur- rent revenues from operation of the 234-mile Alberta Re- sources Railway are insuffi- cient to meet operating costs and the CNR will not find it economically feasible to pur- chase the line, a Montreal firm of chartered accountants says. Touehe Ross and Co., in a re- view of Alberta's financial po- sition commissioned last No- vember by the Progressive Conservative government, said the province's investment of million in the railway is not a "self- supporting asset and. in our opinion' will not be in the forseeable fuuture." The line, which links the CNH's mainline at Solomon with Grande Prairie on the northern Alberta railway, was constructed by the CNR under an agreement with the prov- ince and was opened in 1969. The province-railway agree- ment, signed in 19C5, provided an option for the CNR to pur- chase the line. The original cost was estimated at million tot construction. you are making love.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) After Charles Ward bought worth of clothing last month, he told the court in a damage suit, he re- ceived a bundle of trouble. The 31-year-old airport porter told Superior Court yesterday t h a t a salesman from the store sent him a fol- low-up postcard saying he'd enjoy serving "you and Mrs. Ward." Ward, who insisted he wsa alone when he shopped, said his wife of 11 years, Louanna, hit the ceiling, accused him of shopping with another woman, hurled objects snd 'adjectives inconsistent with legal decorum" and or- dered him out of the home. He is suirig the store. Ward, who Insisted he was any forthconraig ruling in his favor would restore the irate Louanna's faith in him and invite him once again "to her confidence and the bosom of my family" at their home. Oil royalties decision important RED DEER (CP) The provincial government's de- cisicn on oil royalties next month will be the mast impor- tant of this decade, says Grant Notlcy, Alberta New Democra- tic Party Leader. The 10 year contract with oil companies comes up for re- negotiation in March. An increase in Alberta's royalties is unlikely without substantial public pressure on tlie government, Mr. Notley told a public meeting. If royalties were doubled, about ?WO million a year could be added to the provincial trea- sury, he said. Over the next decade the deal would be worth about ?2 billion.
