Ontario grows man s case dismissed RED DEER (CP) An Alberta Supreme Court judge has dismissed an Edmonton insurance agent's claim for against his former employer and assessed all costs to the employee. Edward Leshenko claimed before chief Justice J. V. H. Milvain that the sum was owed him as a result of agreements he had with North West Life Assurance Co. dur- ing his employment with the firm from 1963 to 1970. He said he was promoted to branch manager of the com- pany's office in Saskatoon in 1967 and reluctantly accepted the position at the urging of company president P. G. Ropchan of Vancouver. Mr. Leshenko claimed the company agreed to ensure he would not lose equity he had in a house in Saskatoon and it would pay his moving expenses to and from Red Deer where he was a salesman and assistant manager. Chief Justice Milvain, in dismissing the claims, said Mr. Leshenko's contracts with the company "spoke clearly for themselves clearly he was entitled to commissions and the company had met those obligations.'' POLLY WANTS A ROCK The teeth of the parrotfish are so strong that they can bite through rock. Sask. shrinks Population projection OTTAWA (CP) Ontario may have twice the population of Quebec in the year 2001 and Saskatchewan only half its present population, Statistics Canada reported Thursday. This population projection is one of four made by the statis- tics agency in a 181-page re- port, and shows the most dra- matic fluctuations in popula- tion as well as the largest increase in over-all 21.5 million in 1971 to 34.6 million in 2001. However, the three other projections, based on slower growth rates, also show that the population of Ontario will increase much faster than that of Quebec, while Saskatchewan's declines. The four projections repre- sent a plausible range of future population growth, bas- ed on probable trends in mor- tality, fertility, migration and interprovincial movement, the agency says. The high-growth projection shows Quebec with a popula- The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE tion of 7.5 million in 2001. less than i 5 million higher than its 1971 population. Under this projection. Quebec's popula- tion as a percentage of the country's would decline from 27.9 per cent to 21.6 per cent. Ontario, on the other hand, would almost double its popu- lation, increasing to 14.7 million in 2001 from 7.7 million in 1971. The province's population would then represent 42.4 per cent of the country's, com- pared with 35.7 per cent in 1971. Saskatchewan, the only province or territory for which declines are projected under any circumstances, would have a population of in 2001 under the high- growth projection, compared with 926.000 in 1971. Quebec's slow growth is supposedly due to a low fertili- ty rate and migration, while Saskatchewan's declines are accounted for by migration out of the province. British Columbia and the two territories will more than double their populations if the high-growth projections are correct- British Columbia will have a population of 4.8 million, com- pared with 2.2 million in 1971.

Between 1971 and 1986. the population in the 15-to-44 year bracket will grow faster than the total population, recording an over-all increase between 33 to 37 per cent, the report says. The population 65 years and over will increase to about 3.3 million in 2001 from 1.7 million in 1971. and will repre- sent a larger percentage of the population than at present. While males exceeded the number of females by in the 1971 census, projected trends suggest a sex ratio in favor of females. Buffalo perish in floods FORT SMITH. N.W.T. The superintendent of Wood Buffalo National Park, southeast of here, said Thursday an estimated 350 buffalo drowned this spring in the Peace Athabasca Delta area of the park. Randy Mitchell said the tola) loss in animals will not be known until the winter animals come out of the bush to graze. The buffalo have retreated into the woods for calving, he said. Between 5.000 and 6.000 buffalo roam in the Delta area, feeding on extensive meadows in the area There arr about 10.000 buffalo in the entire park, which covers a vast area of northeastern Alberta and southern parts of the Northwest Territories Mr Mitchell said the animals died because the floods occurred rapidly this spring and because there is virtually no high ground in the delta. He said drownings are a normal process of life in the delta and said the high water is needed to maintain plant life in the park In past years as manv as 2 000 buffalo have died in M s'k LONDON (CP) Prime Minister Ian Smith's election call in Rhodesia reflects the breakdown of his recent effort to negotiate with the black majority and wider pressures brought on by the political up- heaval in Portugal. The coup in Lisbon increas- ed chances that Smith's minority-white government may face a growing threat of black guerrilla activity from across Rhodesia's long border with Mozambique, especially if that Portuguese-controlled territory moves towards independence. Threatened also is Rhodesia's commercial access to markets outside Africa provided by Mo- zambique before the far-right government in Lisbon was toppled. Mozambique was a key fac- tor enabling Smith to evade economic sanctions slapped on his breakaway republic by the United Nations. Calling an election 10 months before his mandate runs out, Smith has blamed the Zanu guerrilla movement for placing pressure on one organization representing black opinion into rejection of his latest lim- for increasing the meagre constitutional rights of Rhodesia's African ma- jority. With the opposition to Smith among the whites currently in disarray, Smith likely will be able to emphasize his version of the bargaining breakdown amid dire warnings about the menace from Mozambique in his electioneering. Thus he can hope to consoli- date white support for his leadership. In the Parliament about to be dissolved Smith's Rhodesia Front maintained a stranglehold, controlling 49 of the 66 seats. About of Rhodesia's whites and a mere 000 from the almost six million blacks have a franchise. Some observers suggest the consequences of the Por- tuguese coup may force even the most hardline Rhodesian whites to make concessions to the blacks. Others see the whites re- maining as determined as ever to retain control of the country which Smith un- ilaterally declared indepen- dent of Britain in 1965. If a black Nationalist government does take over in Mozambique, Rhodesia probably will become more dependent on South Africa for military and economic sup- port. The promise of a roundtable conference with representatives from different sectors of African opinion, which Smith coupled with his election announcement, left even conservative circles Britain skeptical. in Take Off Fat With Home Recipe Plan It's simple how one may lose pounds of unsightly fat right in your own home.
