He has indicated that he could not work properly out of a "first aid post." He also thinks the other doctor feels the same way. The doctor also indicated plans for a clinic in Sparwood are tentative and will have to remain so until it is known what type of hospital facility will be established here.

Canada'* largest Tax Service with ever 5000 offices in North America. 815 THIRD AVE SOUTH 9-9 Weekdays, 9-5 Sat. - Phon* 327-3712 �NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY| Start using the Government's own rules to save a bundle on income tax Here's a perfectly legal way to use the Government's own rules to save on income tax. The Government has a law that says in effect "If you save now for your retirement, we'll let you pay as much as $2,500 into a registered retirement savings plan every year, and well let you knock it off your income." So you merely lower taxable income by putting up to $2,500 in our registered retirement savings plan and don't pay the tax on it. Say you're married, have two children and earned fifteen thousand in 1970. Depending on the province you live in, your tax saving could amount to $906, which is a bundle in any man's language. To top it all off, the money you save can make more money. Essentially there are four ways you can do this. You can have us invest it in stocks. You can have us invest it for a guaranteed rate of interest. You can have us invest it in income producing bonds and mortgages. Or you can divide your money up using any combination of these three alternatives. The beauty of it is: You can actually control the combination as your needs change over the years. For instance you could invest in stocks for several years, for long term-growth. And then as you get closer to retirement, you might want to switch to a guaranteed interest rate. You can change your combination again and again. This means your plans arc flexible at all times. And you can get your money out when you want it When you eventually choose to withdraw it, you have to pay taxes on it at that time, of course. But this is what's most important. You pay tax on your money when you decide to pay it. This means later, when you're likely in a lower tax bracket. This has led some to call this plan a tax shelter. One fellow we know plans to pay into it for several years, watch it grow, then take it out to replace normal income while ho lazes in Majorca. But let's face it, the real benefit comes from leaving it in till you retire. It's especially valuable because we don't have a lot of salesmen out making calls, therefore you don't have to pay sales commissions. All you have to do is call us. But don't put it off. You can't deduct any deposits from your 1970 income tax after Monday, March 1st. So fight fire with fire. Make the rules work for you. Phone us now! Canada Trust 3rd Ave. at 7th St. S. - 327-I5I'
