Data Processing Services 507 CANADA TRUST BUILDING TELEPHONE 328-7883 GNP figures show sharp gain OTTAWA (CP)-A strong gain in the final three months of 1970 sent the year's total of goods and services produced in Canada to an estimated $84,468 million, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported today. The total-Canada's gross national product-was 7.5 per cent higher than the GNP for 1969, $78,560 million, but the price increase for the year was 4.1 per cent. This was a slightly slower rate of over-all growth, and a considerably higher rate of price increase, than has prevailed in recent years. In the final three months of 1970, the GNP was estimated to be running at an annual rate of $86,376 million, up sharply from $84,988 million in the third quarter. The GNP now is likely to exceed $90,000 million by the end of 1971. Last year's total output of goods and services, valued at current market prices for the year, was the equivalent of $9,977.33 for each person in the Students support teachers WELLAND, Ont. (CP) - Stu dents in three area schools kept their promise Wednesday and refused to attend classes as a show of support for teachers protesting a decision ' by the Niagara South board of educa tion to reduce the number of teachers. More than 1,000 students walked out at two high schools in Fort Erie and one at Thorold. Students who attended a board meeting here Tuesday night said they would strike Wednesday to protest the cut backs. They requested that the number of teachers remain the same. The board's 950 teachers at 16 high schools started a work-to-rule program Monday to protest the board decision. The immediate result was a slowdown in extra-curricular activities such as sports and school plays. The board said 185 teaching positions, to become vacant through resignations and retirements will not be filled because of the provincial government's new spending guidelines. $50 million in projects approved CALGARY (CP) - The Cal g a r y Planning Commission Wednesday approved $50 million in building projects for the city, including a $30 million housing development. The development, announced by Famous Players Ltd. and franchised development group of Edmonton, will involve four high-rise apartments and a number of smaller buildings'. The project would occupy a 55-acre site along the Bow River in northwest Calgary and would contain 1,462 suites. A $7 million, 41-storey apartment building near the Husky Tower in downtown Calgary was also approved, along with a provincial judges' court and remand centre, valued at $5 million.

Snowmobiles becoming headache McLENNAN (CP) - An inquest into Alberta's first snow-mobile fatality recommended that the present snow vehicles act be revised with greater emphasis on safety. Henry Thibault, 26, of Fahler, died Feb. 4 when the snowmobile he was driving collided with a truck driven by Armand Bellerieve, also of Fahler. Mr. Thibault was wearing a safety helmet but no goggles. Before sending the jury out, coroner Dr. H. W. Fish of McLennan said chief coroner M. M. Cantor had asked for recommendations. "Snowmobiles are proving to be quite a headache in some centres because of irresponsible drivers," Dr. Fish said. Some drivers "tend to have a lot of power and don't know how to use it." He described Mr. Thibault's death as a "misadventure" to which no blame could be attached. v. recess 1 tt a an J *S\jstems UeJ 1003 4th Avenue S.r Lethbridge Telephone 328-4426 V. recessing ervices AUCTION SALE at the 4-H CLUB DISPLAY BUILDING LETHBRIDGE FAIR GROUNDS of ANTIQUES, CANADIANA DECORATOR ITEMS BYGONES AND COLLECTABLES Sat., March 6-1:00 p.m. Sharp j Featuring an oak roll-top desk, oak swivel office chair, candlestick telephone, Old English Mahogany canteen of silver cutlery.
