For certain types of supposi- tories would melt and become useless if they were kept at regular temperatures. In a few instances such as small-pox and polio vaccines it is even necessary to keep medicines in the freezer compartment. Insulin for certain eye ointments and solutions and some vitamins are a few other examples of products that must be kept m a refrigerator we will periodically check to be sure that the exactly right condi- tions are being maintained SUN-STROKE AND HEAT EXHAUSTION Both are caused by overexposure to extreme heat but they are different problems. Learn to tell them apart. With sun-sfroke the skin is hot and very dry while with heat exhaust- ion it is cold and clammy.

Blast tests site rules Some 55 tons of TNT will be exploded at Suffield next Wednesday by NATO scien- tists who are testing safety storage distances of ex- plosives A Canadian Forces spokesman said Thursday from Edmonton the tests at the Defence Research Establishment Suffield may prove governments have been overly cautious in storing high explosives. It may be that great tracts of land that now buffer pop- ulations from explosive stores can be used for recreation or even Capt. Craig Mills said. Wednesday's test will be the third in a series. Scientists and military representatives from the United States and the United Kingdom will participate. The blast is set for 11 a m In the other assault the 14- year-old girl told police she left the exhibition fair grounds about midnight Saturday night and was walking along South Parkside Drive She noticed a man walking behind her She started walk- ing faster and the man started walking faster She crossed the street to look back when the man grabbed her and put his hand over bar mouth He pushed her into the bushes and told her to shut-up He said scream or you will be dead She said the man had a knife at her back She managed to get away and ran to a house where she pounded on the door The man followed her and grabbed her around the waist and pulled her back to the lawn A woman resident in the area told police she heard a girl scream She went to the door and saw a man dragging a girl to the sidewalk She hollered at the man to let the girl go or she was going to call the police He finally let her go and fled The police were summoned but they were unable to find any suspects in the area The inci- dent is still under investigation Mania bear roams free despite massive hunt A two-hour helicopter search of Beauvais Lake Provincial Park and im- mediate area Sunday failed to locate the bear that mauled two youths July 14 The search for mother bear and her two cubs enters its eighth day restricted to in- vestigations of reported sightings of the bear by people who live in the area of the 14 miles wdst of Pincher Creek Frank Lethbndge office supervisor of the Alberta lands and forests said to- day the helicopter had to return to forest fire fighting duties in other parts of the province If choppers are available to wildlife officers again before the bear is the search by helicopter will be con- he said Mr Sommerville expects that the bear is still roaming near the park because bears stick to a range they are used A small aircraft search for the bear was discontinued last week because of the density of the foliage in the area The two youths mauled by the bear.
