A department spokesman said Friday the money was the first from stamp sales to be paid by the post office to the Comite des Jeux Olympiques The federal government has undertaken to raise million through sale of Olympic stamps and million through sale of specially- minted souvenir coins for the games. By MORT REED For those unfamiliar with "Elongated" coins, they are best described as a normal coin of the realm compressed and stretched to a piece usually twice its length. In running the coin through a series of steel rollers, one roller equipped with a message, acts as a die and imprints a message on one surface of the distorted coin. The other surface maintains a recognizable image of its original design. The idea stemmed from placing a coin on a railroad track years ago when travelers wanted a memento of a town or place they had visited by train. Then someone came up with the idea of impressing the words of the Lord's Prayer on one side with their name and date on the other. Today, these elongateds may appear in two categories. "Store which give the name and address of a business or collector, "Commemoratives" honoring everything from wars to picnics. Some of the more popular subjects covered in the elongated series are the "Lord's the "Pledge of "Kilroy was "Wat- "The .Energy Crisis" and many others. The "Shalom" slogans are printed on Israeli coins; "God Bless the Queen" on English coins, and commemoratives to the Japanese Expo '70 appear on Japanese coins. Elongateds are made by running the coin through a machine similar in nature to a jewelers mill. Some of the die- rollers are actually engraved by hand while others are processed with electrically etched photography to incorporate more detail. Collecting elongated coins is one of the fastest growing facets in numismatics today. Jet boat 'safe as a car9 REGINA (CP) Sixteen months ago Henry Turlock de- cided to go into the business of building jet-powered boats. He went to Vancouver to get first-hand experience, climbed into a demonstrator and took off at 50 miles an hour. "It flipped me right out oi my seat." Today, Mr. Turlock and partner Dan Gafencu own Tecentre Custom Service Ltd. in Regina, one of the few companies in North America that builds jet-powered boats. Tecentre is still a young and struggling fall it pulled its first production-line boat out of the things have been looking up. The company has sold its first two the RCMP for patrol work in a grant and run a successful test of its first racing won a seven- day Mexican race in January of last year, beating boats from 30 countries over a 394- mile course. Mr. Turlock has had plans to increase his staff and turn out a custom-designed boat once every two weeks. The boats, he said, "are the Rolls Royce of motorboats." They can cruise all day at 50 miles an hour. It started when Mr. Turlock and Mr. Gafencu decided to expand their part-time boat- repair shop. They purchased a Hamilton jet. "tore out the hull and redesigned it." "Now it's so safe anyone who can drive a car can drive our jet boat." The next objective is breaking into the commercial market with boats that will cost between and each, cruise up to 50 miles an hour and have a range of up to 500 miles on five gallons of gas. Mr. Turlock and Mr. Gafencu got into the business with an initial investment of each. Limited capital is still a problem. A loan from the Sas- katchewan government was spent on redesigning the Ham- ilton jet for the RCMP but Te- centre has had difficulty in raising risk capital to begin production of more boats. An incentive grant from-the department of regional eco- nomic expansion will allow the firm to set up a factory at Qu'Appelle but won't solve the problem of capital. Plans call for the Qu'Appelle factory, which will employ native labor, to design and produce canoes, water-ski launching docks, surfboards and other marine equipment. Your garden By IsabdleR. Young, F.IRS. Insulation works in a.nd two seasons Warm weather causes home buyers to forget about insulation. It saves energy in hot weather too. Keeping summer heat put means your .air-conditioning doesn't have to work as hard. So, you use and pay for less electricity. The idea is maximum environmental comfort at minimum cost for both heating and cooling. With the prospect of year- round energy shortages, prospective home buyers should closely question builders about the amount and type of insulation offered. Beefing up a layer of attic insulation is a fairly simple do it yourself chore. But, adding insulation to an existing wall is a far more difficult and expensive proposition. For home owners, the most economical time to upgrade wall insulation is during house construction. CALADIUMS Are you under the impression that caladiums are just used as house plants? They are most useful massed in summer borders, planters or in portable pots in a spot in the'garden that is protected from the hot sun and high winds. These beautiful plants with their brightly colored leaves of crimson, white and pink, all with green edging and veining, create a picturesque effect wherever they are grown. The heart-shaped leaves makes one think of angel wings. Caladiums are remarkably easy to grow, providing a wonderful display of color in semi-shade. The rhizomes or tubers are started in February or March in a compost consisting of three parts loam, one part peat moss with a little manure added. Press tubers down onto a layer of moist peat moss, vermiculite or leafmold (covering with leaving the top exposed. Keep in a temperature of 75 to 85 degrees F. and if bottom heat is given, sprouting will take place quicker. When the sprouts are two inches high, transplant into containers about four inches wider than tubers. Place gravel or pieces of old broken pots in bottom to assure good drainage, using compost mentioned above, or equal parts of sandy loam, leafmold or peat moss, with a little manure. When the first leaves begin to form, give enough water to keep soil moist, but never waterlogged. As the leaves grow larger and increase in number, the plant will require more moisture, as well as a light misting over daily to supply the required humidity. Caladiums are native to the rain forests of tropical Brazil and thrive on warmth and humidity. While they do require perhaps more moisture than some plants, Walkout WARM SPRING, Mont. (AP) About 600 employees of the Warm Springs State Hospital staged a walkout Tuesday night, leaving the mental institution in the hands of a skeletal staff of supervisory personnel. The walkout was staged to demonstrate to Montana legislators that employees are dissatisfied with their pay rates. Read TheWorld Almanac.

Lethbrtdge The lethbridgc Herald "Serves the South" use caution when watering. If the tubers are planted in cold, overly wet compost, they will rot and even do so, when becoming established, if too much moisture is applied at this time. Water lightly to produce strong, healthy roots With regard to feeding, as soon as two to three large leaves ha-ve two to'three large leaves have developed, apply a water soluble plant food once a month, preferably one high in potash as this helps to produce firm, plump tubers. Do not give a fertilizer too high in nitrogen as this tends to dull the bright reds and pinks in th leaf coloring. When a leaf starts to brown and droop, cut it off about two inches above soil level. If you would like a leaf or two for indoor decorations, after cutting, place immediately in a container of warm water for several hours, thus conditioning them to last two to three weeks in arrangements. The flowers, which caladiums produce, are rather insignificant and useless, and so it is a matter of preference whether you pinch them off or not. In the fall, before a frost, when the plants start to slow down in growth, dig up tubers and transplant into pots. Keep in a warm atmosphere and gradually diminish the moisture until the leaves have dried up. Store tubers in peal moss or vermiculite in a cool place, 45 degrees F. If they start to shrivel, moisten slightly. Keep a check on them from time to time. Start into growth again in February or March. MR. P. I was thinking of using cat manure and litter in a compost heap I am making, but was told this might cause a considerable, unpleasant odor. Would you please comment on this. Ans. I am afraid there could be a very disagreeable odor from such an experiment. If you want to try it, I would suggest you use the manure as far away from any living area as possible. -The Herald At Home Time to get bike ready to roll By MR. FIX Bicycles are becoming so popular that manufacturers are having a hard time keeping up with the demand. More than a toy for youngsters, more than a means of keeping fit for their elders, the bicycle in this day of spiraling auto and gasoline costs is becoming for some an important means of transportation. Whatever its place in your plans, a bike needs maintenance just as your auto does. Unlike your auto, a bike is something you can do a good amount of maintenance on yourself. Since bicycles have become more 'complicated with elaborate gear shifting devices there remain some items best left to a skilled mechanic. Gears and brakes are among them. Even these will need little attention from the serviceman if you follow good maintenance procedure. Begin by keeping bicycles clean and dry. This involves having a sheltered place for storage. Exposed parts that are wet and muddy should be wiped off as soon as possible. There is very little you will need to work on a hjke that you don't have already in the way of wrenches and screwdrivers. Medium weight lubricating oil. grease and some kerosene are called for. Inspect chains frequently. Don't let them get mud covered. The grit adds to the wear. Since links wear out individually it isn't necessary to replace the entire chain. You don't have to remove the rear wheel to take off the chain. One link snaps "pen and if you look carefully you can find it. One side of it is a cover plate that comes off. The best way to clean a chain is to soak it in kerosene for a few hours. When it is clean, give it a second soaking in lubricating oil. Chain tension is adjusted by way of an adjusting screw that moves the rear wheel. Leave some play but never more than a half-inch. Keep, pedals tight. Lubricate pedal bearings frequently. Saddle bolts and handlebars should be kept tight. Check the fork assembly for looseness. To examine and lubricate the bearings, remove the handlebars, then the lock nut and loosen the cone. Not only automobile wheels get out of alignment. So do bicycle wheels and the result is poor tire wear. Keep axle nuts tight and the wheels will remain in line. The adjusting cone just inside the wheel nut should be adjusted so that there is no play but so that the wheel can turn freely. While you have the wheel nut and cone loose, clean the wheel bearings. Squirt a little kerosene on the bearings. Rotate the wheel, then lubricate before tightening. Check tire pressure regularly. This varies, so check the amount of pressure printed on the side of the tire. Some tires take 22 to 35 pounds. Some narrow tires take up to 60 Ibs. The ones special tool you will need is a spoke wrench which is very, very cheap. Use this to keep the spokes at uniform tension which in turn will keep the rim in good condition.
