Joan Waterfield and Terry Bland will provide the commentary and gowns will be displayed by Contempra models, including Christian Willis, left, as Scarlett O'Hara and Denise Macdonald as Eliza Doolittle of My Fair Lady fame. The gowns themselves.are from the collection of skillful reproductions made by Mrs. Lucille Kraemer of Calgary, and have been widely shown across Canada. Several of Mrs. Kraemer's gowns have already found permanent homes in the Toronto and Medicine Hat museums, the Glenbow Foundation, Heritage Park and the University of Saskatchewan. tal retardation and physical deformity, the National Council of Welfare said in a report released yesterday. And the council, a citizens' advisory body to the federal welfare minister, says that as long as poverty exists, badly-nourished children of the poor will not develop as they should. The 41-page report says Canadians on the whole subsist on diets that are lacking in nutrition. But the more affluent, because they are able to over-eat, reach a level of nutrition safety. Poor families often bring up children who are undersized, sick, disabled and exposed to disease, the report says. Undernutrition reduces physical and mental development of these children and deprives them of a chance to reach their full potential in life, it adds. CHANCES ARE BETTER While good diets will not guarantee children will be automatically good or wise, they promise more equal chances for all children. "Through commit m e n t to sound national nutrition we can extend the rule of 'one man, one vote,' to 'one child, one chance.'

S. PHONE 327-6070 THE AMERKS MOVE IN - There's growing concern right across the country how the Americans have been buying up Canadian land. In Weekend Magazine this Saturday, Gordon Gibson, a' former special assistant of Prime Minister Trudeau, gives a province-by-province report on land sales to foreigners. He also offers suggestions on how to keep the land Canadian-owned. IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) - British housewives woke this week to read of prices falling on a range of goods from cosmetics to potato chips as some retailers jumped the gun on the new value added tax (V.A.T.) announced in Chancellor Anthony Barber's budget. Under the new 10-per-cent tax, which from April 1 replaces Britain's existing graduated sales taxes and payroll tax to bring Britain into line with Common Market countries, some prices go down, some rise and some remain much the same. Less than an hour after Barber sat down in the Commons after announcing what he termed a "neutral" budget, manufacturers and shopkeepers an- nounced price reductions ranging up to 16 per cent on low-priced items. One supermarket chief said the levels will bring back prices of many food items to those of five years ago. Hyman Kreit-man, head of another supermarket chain, said Barber's budget was a "Shrove Tuesday gift to the housewife." Britain's biggest firm of drugstores announced immediate cuts on 300 products from shampoos to electric shavers. BOON FOR CHILDREN The budget, which one tabloid called "kids' stuff," also, because of V.A.T., reduces the price of chocolate and other candy, soft drinks, roasted peanuts and ice-cream.

CANADA OFC 'It takes no getting used to." 25 per cent-under the Labor administration the highest rate was a punitive 55 per cent-will not necessarily mean prices will drop to a level 10 per cent. The present system, introduced early in the Second World War, levies the tax on the wholesale price whereas V.A.T. is levied on the final retail price. Items that will go up under the new tax, which previously escaped any sales levy, include a whole range of services from garage repairs to lawyers fees; second-hand furniture less than 100 years old, household deter- Beans, beans, beans gents, telephone bills and theatre tickets. Typewriters, previously exempt as educational tools, also will fall into the V.A.T. net. Children's clothes and shoes, at first intended by Barber to be taxed under V.A.T., now will be "zero-rated" and remain with no levy. After much criticism of his earlier plan, Barber admitted in the Commons Tuesday "I was wrong," but he added his advisers planned to ensure no tax-dodging took place on such clothes bought by small adults. The measurements of the current Miss World, he had learned, were the same as those of a girl of 12. Amid laughter, he added: "Unfortuntely, it is | no part of my responsibility as ! chancellor of the exchequer to j add to the many advantages already enjoyed by slim and nubile young women.' Melvln Canned CANADIAN SCHENLEY DISTILLERIES LTD. Celebrating the 20tb anniversary of the Canadian Scbenley football Awards, LONDON (CP) - Roberts eats beans, baked beans, that is, and nothing else. Well, hardly anything else. He somtimes has beans on toast, his mother says. And Melvin. 15, admits to the occasional bit of ice cream or lemonade. But otherwise he eats beans -14 cans a wesk, even on Christmas Day, for a lifetime total of 8,700 cans so far, his family estimates. School officials have warned that all those beans aren't good for him. But doctors say Melvin, a husky five-fodt-10 and an ardent athlete, is in excellent shape. Full of beans, in fact. He doesn't like runner beans, jelly beans, broad beans "or any other kind of beans," he says. A nutritionist said beans are good food but a beans-only diet is not recommended since they do not contain some essential vitamins. Said Melvin's father, Victor, a 46-year-old Lincolnshire bricklayer: "He's certainly cheap enough to keep. Just 98 pence (about $2.35) a week for 14 tins of beans."

BASIL'S MEN'S CLUB Tfc council says a $20 Increase in January for a family, of four receiving money under Ontario's Family Benefits Act increased the shelter allowance by $5 while the rest was assigned to all other ordinary needs including food, clothing and utilities. WON'T PAY RENT The $5 shelter increase would not come close to meeting the actual change in rent costs over the last year. Urging provincial governments to take these factors into account, the council calls for a review of assistance plans to determine whether amounts estimated for food costs are realistic. The report says the most important step toward ensuring adequate nutrition for all Canadians would be establishment of a guaranteed annual income to meet basic needs. The council also recommends nutrition counselling for expectant mothers; a nationwide system of school meals for children on a federal - provincial cost - sharing basis; promotion of proper eating habits through radio and television; labelling of foods to provide nutrition information and inclusion of counselling services in community centres. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner ALICE M. Catholic SNYDER Central Basketball seems to be the foremost topic of discussion amongst students these past few weeks. We are doubly proud of our Cougars and Kittens basketball teams. The Cougars recently captured the southern Alberta A Boys championship, which earns them a berth in the Alberta A Boys Provincials being held at LCI March 16, 17 and 18." Because the Kittens won the Southwest zone B girls championship last Saturday night, they will now advance to the Alberta finals in Stettler next weekend. Camgratulations! We wish both teams the best of luck and urge everyone to attend these games and support their school. In conjunction with the Provincial Basketball Tournament, Catholic Central and LCI are sponsoring a joint, double-bandstand dance at the Civic Centre on Thursday, March 15. Two bands from Edmonton, Si!ge and Butler will be performing and this should prove to be a successful dance for both schools. Our graduation committee is presently hard at work organ- izing the May 12 graduation ceremonies. There have been numerous schemes undertaken by our enterprising fund - raising committee; including a teacher - student basketb all game, bake sales and a faculty breakfast. We hope the junior and senior - high students will support the activities being planned.  * * On Tuesday, March 6, six students from CCH attended an education conference at LCI with Minister of Education, Mr. Lou Hyndman as guest speaker. The conference was both in-forma t i v e and educational; however the students participating would have preferred a more extensive involvement as discussion was limited to a minimal amount of time and people.    Both junior and high students are currently participating in a diversified program of events designed to usher in the Lenten Beason. Ash Wednesday was celebrated on March 7 with a Mass, and a series of films, plays and other religious presentations.
