Canadian pondage width va- ries up to nearly two miles at one point. Saleable timber cleared on the completed two thirds, cut at ground level has tallied cubic feet so far and has all been sold by tender.

A mouth-watering extn, adding enjoyment to any meal or a between-mtal fun-food snack! A potato Is a natural plant, but the process of getting that potato from the original seed to your plate is a complex and costly one. The farmer has to find the best potato for his soil and weather conditions. He plants, irrigates and fertilizes. Then there's harvesting, marketing and distribution. A long involved process, similar in many ways to the complex procedures involved in harnessing the electricity yau need to keep your home running efficiently. Electricity is a "natural" too, but specialized skills and processes are needed for instant switch availability. While the overall cost of living has increased dramatically 'hi ptke of electricity is still one of today's best bargains. So when you consider inflation think about the potato on your plate, and in the field and about electricity, another "natural" that goes through many stages before it gets to you! CALQARY POWBR ;
