Prairie wheat plantings reverse downward trend Thursday, July 15, 7971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - XI OTTAWA (CP) - Prairie farmers boosted their wheat acreage 56 per cent to 18.7 million acres this year following a government - prompted slash to 12 million in 1970, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported today. In its preliminary estimates of crops and summerf allow acreages, the bureau says this year's wheat plantings reverse the downward trend during the last three years, but the total is still well below the 24.4 million acres sown in 1969 and the 1960-69 average of 27.1 million acres. It is the se c o n d smallest wheat acreage since 1943 when about 16 million acres were seeded. Last year, farmers responded to the government's reduction program by slashing their acreage in the face of a billion-bushel surplus. i Barley acreage showed a similar jump to 14.6 million acres from 9.5 million in 1970 and a 10-year average of 6.6 million. Rapeseed plantings increased to 5.4 million this year from four million in 1970 and a 10-year average of 1.1 million. OATS ACREAGE DOWN But the number of acres seeded to flax and oats was down from last year. Flax plantings dropped to 2 million acres from 3.4 million last year, but. are still up from a 10-year average of 1.8 million. Oats acreage dropped to 6.2 million from 6.5 million in 1971. Rye acreage is estimated to be slighlty more than 1 million acres, nine per cer,t higher than last year. Summerf allow acreages dropped 30 per cent to 26 million acres from 36.9 million last Rezoning refused CRANBROOK, B.C. (Special) -Regicnal District of East Koo-tenay board, on advice of its technical planning committee, has declined approval of two rural applications for rezoning in electoral area in Wasa vicinity. Frank Glover, longtime business and resort operator on Wasa Lake, which is also intensively built with summer homes, had asked rezoning of the single commercial zone area in the lake vicinity at its north end as highway -. commercial. The area is crown property he holds on lease and in which he had already invested $4,000, he said. Plans call for a mobile home park. Casual expansion of Wasa community from resort to year-round residential, since it is within easy commuting range of the pulpmill, has occurred around the relatively small Glover leased property. He said he had already received the provincial government permits for tourist' accommodation and trailer development for the property. The technical planning committee cited necessity for 20 - lot minimum for such a development, and commercial zone use limitations. Second declined application came from George Koopmans, who owns a quarter - section farm south of Wasa. He wanted permission to deed a relative on acre for bousing, but the zoning regulations limit to 80 acres minimum rural subdivision. ART TREASURES STOLEN SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Three valuable Oriental figures have been stolen from the Avery Brundage Collection of the Centre of Asian Art and Culture in Golden Gate Park. year. The total is still less than the ten-year figure of about 27 mi Hi - acres. Reports on crop conditions, telegraphed to Ottawa Tuesday night by the bureau's crop correspondents in the Prairies show a general improvement in growth with either "sufficient to excessive" moisture in all areas but southern Alberta and the southwest corner of Saskatchewan.

When the province's redesigned corrections program comes into effect, it may include provisions to have inmates work both inside and outside the institutions.

IThe traditional napkin Fs rectangular shaped, too wide in the middle to fit properly. That means bunching and folding over. The Confidet is a' tapered napkin, narrower across the centre. That means a snug, comfortable fit. 2Confidets are thicker through the middle. That means extra absorb-ency. Traditional napkins are flat, the same thickness all over. So how can they be really effective? Yet Con-fidets aren't bulky, because they get slimmer towards the ends, see? One more thing, Confidets have a special inner layer of plastic that's bonded in place so it positively can't slip. That means extra security. 3The covering of traditional napkins is soft. But soft and flimsy. That means the material will rip apart when attached to a sanitary belt. Confidets combine a strong underlayer with a soft, finely textured outer layer. You get end tabs that don't shred. They fasten securely and stay fastened. 4Traditional napkin packages have perforated openings that tear unevenly and break fingernails. Confidets have a convenient tearstrip. Just lift up the tab, and rip! It's that simple. Traditional napkin boxes don't close properly once they've been opened. That means exposing new napkins to dust and dirt. Confidets have a re-closable lid. Take out one napkin, then close up the package tight, till next time. 5Traditionaf napkins come fn "regular" and "super" absorbencies. If you have a heavier flow at the start of your period, you should really have both on hand. You needn't bother. Confidets are both. You get the absorbency of a super pad and the trimness of a regular, all in one napkin. We've made the comparison. Now it's your turn. Redeem our coupon and try Confidets for yourself. You'll never go back to traditional napkins again. papjsr UMrrep , � , ft. t.' !
