So he announced a grin-and-bear-it contest, offering 25 silver dollars and a hot-pants suit to the first girl to walk through the studio doors of station CJAD dressed in a bikini. Within 17 minutes Thursday the winner walked in wearing a red, white and blue bikini and blue panty hose. Then in Computer menus TORONTO (CP) - Free computer-planned, low-budget family menus and recipes will be available soon in supermarkets. Beginning i n mid-February, Hunt-Wesson Foods of Canada will distribute three million 20-page booklets throughout supermarkets. The free booklets are the company's answer to consumer and government requests that private industry help curb inflation, said T. E. G. Krogius, president of the Canadian operation. the next 20 minutes 11 more girls reported to the studio. Jennifer Pratt, 19, a nursing student at Dawson College, heard Balcan's announcement while she was still in bed and decided on the spur of the moment to leap into coat, boots and bikini and skip her breakfast. She walked three blocks from her YWCA room to the radio station, stripped off her coat and claimed the $25. "When 1 saw the blue legs I thought it was because she was cold," Balcan said later. The other girls came by taxi, train and bus - all with the proper costume. "They stripped in the lobby and caused quite a and of L ou t bit of mayhem out there."

LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By MARLENE COOKSHAW Winston Churchill High School jtlAYBE it's the time of year, maybe it's the weather, who knows? Things just seem to be getting us down - mundane, trivial things get on our nerves and bother us. Several informal rap sessions with kids around the school have resulted in this statement: those trivial things are bothering us because those trivial things are the only things we're doing. We're sitting around, waiting for someone else to do something and all ready to criticize the moment they do. Oh, we've got great mouths, but I think iV's about time we got something else in gear. How many of us have got enough gumption to stand up and say what we think ought to be done, then get out and do it? Each of us has something that no one else has - no one can write a poem exactly the way you can; no one can give a song the same meaning you do; no one has the same dream that you have stored away in the back of his head. For your own good, for everyone's benefit, get out and give to people that something that no one else can give them; drag that dream out of cold storage and make it a reality. Paint a picture, start an archaeology club, run for mayor if that's your thing. Just do something, anything, to contribute to your school, your city, whatever your world happens to be. Don't be so blessed scared of showing people who you are and what you believe. You'll be surprised at how fast things start improving, and you'll be even more surprised' at how good it feels to be making something happen. Speaking of making things happen, our girls' basketball team is really going to it this season. They are presently a close second in league competition and they've got their chance to overtake LCI in the next couple of weeks. This Saturday, they're battling it out with Kate Andrews High School in Coaldale, and the following weekend, they will be attending the LCI invitational tournament. The Bulldogs are playing at Fort Macleod this Saturday. All the games are at seven o'clock so get out there and give them your support. Our famous Churchill band will provide an evening of entertainment Wednesday, Feb. 17. It's at the Yates Memorial Centre, eight o'clock, and is a concert of "pop" music. If you enjoy any kind of music, you'll love this and have a great time as well. Recently our Grad Committee sponsored a raffle to help raise money to cover graduation .expenses. On behalf of our graduating class, I'd like to express our thanks to all those who participated in the raffle for their encouragement and support. We couldn't have done it without your help.

I, too, was beautiful and intelligent-or so everyone said. I made the mistake of marrying a lush, too. Whenever I kicked him out I always took him back-"for the sake of the children." Who was I kidding? My children needed a drunken father like they needed a hole in the head. We had no social life because the only people who will put up with a drunk are other drunks. The children often went to school exhausted and nervous from lack of sleep. Their father frequently stalked the house, ranting and raving, until 5 o'clock in the morning. I stayed with that miserable man for 15 years. I kept telling myself he was a sick man and he needed me. One day I had to admit I was sicker than he was or I wouldn't put up with his lying and cheating. A woman has to be crazy to let her husband squander his paycheck, when their children need shoes and milk. I don't know why it took me so long to get smart (or should I say well) but I thank my lucky stars I finally made it. I hope you will print my letter for the benefit of other women who are back where I was 20 years ago. Now is the time to use your famous line, Ann. Tell them to wake up and smell the coffee.-Slow Learner. DEAR SLOW: Thanks for your letter. There's a heap o'lesson here. I hope the student pays close attention. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Here's how I solved the non-stop-barking-dog dilemma: After three sleepless nights I got out of bed (at 3:00 a.m.), drove my car out of the garage, parked in the driveway right under our neighbor's window and leaned on the horn, I kep the horn going for 15 minutes without a let-up. The neighbors came out wild-eyed- screaming threats about having me arrested for disturbing the peace. I told them I was not making any more noise than their dog. Within three minutes they look the mutt in the house. Since that night we've never heard a sound out of man or dog.--Beautiful Dreamer DEAR BEAUTIFUL: Thanks for writing. You're lucky the neighbors on the other side didn't call the police! # * Confidential to What Can A Mother Do?: One thing a mother can do is stop telling hsr son that hris steady is a tramp. The more you talk against the girl the more he'll have to defend her. In fact, he may "defend" her so vehemently that one of these d�ys you'll end up being her mother-in-law.
