An alternate resolution sug- gests that a sales tax exempt- ing food and drugs could raise about 588.3 million annually. Proposed by the ASTA exec- utive, the resolution to its It- nance meeting says the school foundation program requires money from property taxes, but present rates are reaching critical limits. The proposals are among a number of measures to be de- bated during the finance meet- Ing, called to prepare briefs to the government on changes to educational financing formulas in 1973. A proposal asking that the fi- nancial capacity of school boards be increased to enable them to deal with added adult, social and recreational re- sponsibilities will also be dis- cussed. Other resolutions call for school boards to eliminate pro- grams which do not justify their expense; more pupil learning from non-teacher sources; and changing the names of school boards to hu- man development boards if they arc to take on extra re- eponsibiliUes. bility of problems volved.

Of the 14 bank robberies in the city in 1971, all were "cleared" by ar- rests. Of the four tlus year to m i d -M a y two have been "cleared" by arrests. Edmon- ton's average for solving bank robberies is well above the na- tional average. MONTREAL (CP) Dr. David K. Peters of St. John's, Nfld., has been installed as president oE the Canadian Den- tal Association. He succeeds Dr. Louis Ber- nier of Quebec City. Dr. John E. Abra, a Winnipeg orthodontist, was chosen presi- dent-elect of the association at its annual meeting here this week. Meanwhile, Dr. Piobert M. Le Blanc of Montreal was awarded Canadian dentistry's highest membership in the CD A. Dr. Le Blanc, who will retire next month as registrar of the College of Dental Surgeons of the Province of Quebec after 12 years, founded and is chief of the dental department of Hotel Dieu Hospital in Sherbrooke, Que. Born in Colombes, France, Dr. Le Blanc graduated from the University of Bordeaux. The Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Sharon Wolf, age 12, of Youngstown, Ohio, for her question: What exactly are musk-oxen? Twenty years ago, the musk- ox was listed as an endangered species, living in small herds around the north polar shores of Canada and Greenland. Then he was adopted. Not since pre- historic days had wilde cattle animals been domesticated. The musk-ox was most agree- able and the experiment sur- passed everybody's wildest dreams. Soon Eskimo villages expect to have their own herds though this precious animal will not be served as meat. Strange to say, he is not an ox and he has no musk glands. True, he has a bison-type pro- file, but there is nothing cow- like in his character. The musk-ox is as frisky as his an> telopc relatives as curious, clever and clownish as his goal relatives. Eskimos call him Oomingmak, the B e a r d e One. Actually, his rather long face hair extends in a mucl shaggier shawl over Ms humped shoulders. From a distance he seems to be wearing a large white pair of drooping biki handlebars on his forehead These are his horns. There is a white patch on lu's nose and i winter, his charcoal brown coa reaches down to his f u r r j while booties. Musk-oxen have no s w e a glands and must live in col climates. They dig for scant Arctic grasses and quench Ihe thirst with snow.

They even en- joyed giving the children rides on their shaggy backs. It is said that musk-ox meat is very good. But who could dream of eating such a charm- ing, intelligent friend. Nobody had to because liis silken undercoat makes him far too valuable for the meat market. It is called "quiviut" and every spring, an adult sheds five or six pounfls of it.

It looks like silvery nickel with a very aint bluish tinge. Actually, its main ingredients are about 67 per cent nickel and 28 per cent copper. It also contains iron, aluminum or magnesium and perhaps other metallic ele- ments in smaller helpings. Like all good alloys, monel metal has qualities superior to its ingredients. It is as strong as steel. But it resists rust and most corro- sive acids. It withstands steam, hot gasses and seawater. Plain nickel is hard to extract from ores that contain copper. Monel metal is cheaper because these metals need not be separated from their ore, Sheets of this splended alloy are used to line chemical tanks and to pro- tect ships from corrosive sea- water.

D Cat scratch fever is quite rare Dear Br. I.amb Could you please explain what cat scratch fever is and its after affects if any? I have children who play with cats a lot and I would like to know how dangerous it is. They are often scratched by them. near Reader Cat scratch lever can he caused by any puncture or scratch on the skin. It doesn't have to be from the claws or teeth of the cat. It just happens that the cat is the most frequent source of these minor skin injuries in children. If il is caused by a cat it is not because the cat is sick, it is just because the germ that is responsible for the illness is on the cat's claws or teeth. The truth is authorities haven't agreed yet on the exact cause of cat scratch fever, that is, whether it is a bacteria or virus or some other germ. Most nvestigators think it is a virus If the skin is broken the agent penetrates the body's defenses md sets up a local infection This may he very minor, caus ing a few reddened bumps the site where the scratch oc currcd. Sometimes there may be littlo blisters or a scab. Usu ally the site of the scratch heals even forming a scar The infectious process reall; hits the lymph nodes and a with other infections it af.ick those lymph nodes directly line with the lymph drainag from the injury. On tho hand arm pit lymph nodes will e affected. If it is on the feet r on the ankles, it wi'n affect lose in the groin. The lymph odes swell and become tender nd sometimes the skin over hem is reddened. Along witii .is the persons may have fev- r and a generalized, non-spec- 'ic illness. The lymph nodes often.and gradually return to normal. Sometimes, the softened ymph node becomes an ab- scess and may drain. Usually even though the lymph node may contain pus it is not drain- ed because it will then take longer to heal. Barely enceph- alitis may follow such an in- fection but that is true of most virus infections too. Fortunate- ly, the type of encephalitis that has rarely been observed fol- lowing cat scratch fever parently doesn't leave any resi- dual brain damage. There really isn't any good treatment. Antibiotics don't af- fect viruses and they don't cure cat scratch fever. About the only thing the doctor can do is to provide symptomatic treat- ment to make the patient com- fortable. I would like to add that con- sidering the large number of cats in families and the num- ber of cat scratches it is rather remarkable how rare this prob- lem really is. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
