They say their company, which July, is one of two brass bed manufact- urers in the world. The company produces as many as 20 beds a week. Unique brass bed business manufactures prized antiques OTTAWA (CP) Jack and Cox own a unique business. They manufacture old-fashioned brass beds, once common in many homes but now prized as antiques almost everywhere. They started the Constance Cox .Brass Bed Co. here in July, just after they were married. The Industrial Development Bank, dubious about their prospects, re- jected their plea for help but with the savings of a friend and a bank loan they managed to get started. Now, after months of work- ing seven days a week the Coxes, along with a staff of seven, produce as many as 20 beds a week. The beds, made in 19th-cen- tury styles, are shipped to Montreal, Toronto and Van- couver. The Coxes plan to change these styles after a time to make them unique familv heirlooms. They say tneir company is the first to make whole beds out of thick pure brass rather than just thin brass or brass-coated steel. Each piece is lacquered to prevent tarnish so that the owner never has to polish the bed. Steel crossbars are inserted in each bed to provide extra strength and the whole struc- ture moves on steel ball- bearing casters. The brass and patterns are sent out for Horse meat casting, as -the company workshop lacks the necessary facilities. They say the only other known manufacturer of brass beds today is an Englishman WeeWhimsy TORONTO (CP) One flourishing export trade in On- tario is horsemeat. Shipments leave by air four times a week' for Prance although prices are high by the time the meat ends up on the counter. On- tario dealers buy horsemeat for only a few cents a pound but after profits and freight costs have been realized, French housewives are forced to pay a pound for the meat more than Canadian housewives pay for steak. F Boutjot vtf be Mittht tar hvquott. who makes them solely ior the African market. His beds are slightly differ- ent, with decorative balls on head and base boards made from thin metal and filled with beads. In Africa, the Coxes say, it is considered a sign of virility if the beads rattle loudly dur- ing lovemaking. About 140 pounds of brass goes into a Constance Cox Co. doubled bed, that sells for or depending on the style. It costs the company a pound for brass to produce their single, double, queen and kingsize beds.

High fees threaten closure LONDON (AP) The school in the tiny village of Millbrook, Bedfordshire, is threatened with closure because the cost per pupil is as high as the fees at the best private schools. The village has a population of 195. The school, founded in 1840, has its own swimming pool, modern play equipment and high education standards. It also has nine pupils. And it costs the taxpayers that's around for every one of them. Befordshire County Council says that is more than three times the average cost in the country's primary schools. In the event of closure the children would be bused two miles to the nearest town Ampthill. Entertainers humiliated WICHITA, Kan. (AP) City Commissioner Connie Peters applied for a municipal licence to be a go-go dancer, but she has no plans to take to the stage. Mrs. Peters said she paid the fee and applied for a licence in order to demonstrate the humiliation that female entertainers are required to go through, and to protest the fact that licences are not required for male dancers. When she filed her application, the police depart- ment directed her to report to its vice squad of fice to have her picture taken. Mrs. Peters a tt-year-oM divorcee with her three JORDANS FAMOUS YEAR-END WAREHOUSE SALE Before Stock-Taking A Drastic Sell-Off at Spectacular Savings of BROADLOOM CLOSE-OUTS volume dealing huge accumulation which muet be adjusted before we take stock.
