A. Olson. Mr. Pudwell, in a telephone Interview from Ottawa, was commenting on the department's decision not to allow an application by the Edmonton and Calgary exhibition boards to operate such off-track betting shops. Mr. Pudwell said the whole problem of off-track betting now is under discussion by the justice minister and the pro-vmcial attorneys-general. "At the moment the minister (Mr. Olson) does not have sufficient staff and facilities to supervise off-track betting on. a nation-wide basis," Mr. Pudwell added. He said the department, which is responsible for the supervision and licensing of pari-mutuel betting, expects similar requests from other parts of the country.

Immigration total clown OTTAWA (CP) - A total of 147,713 immigrants came to Canada in 1970, down 13,818 from the figure for the previous year. Announcing the figures Friday, the immigration department said the reduction reflected slacker economic conditions in Canada and strong economic conditions in the European countries from which Canada traditionally draws the bulk of its immigrants. The 1970 inflow added 77,723 persons to the Canadian labor force, compared with 84,349 the previous year.

The companies are Columbia Cellulose Co. Ltd. and Bulkley Valley Forest Industries Ltd. They issued a statement saying "preliminary discussions DREAM CAME TRUE - Don Scardino first appeared on the stage at age 14 though he always wanted to be an actor since the age of six. Now, 23, he's a seasoned veteran, having appeared in sev-eral .stage .performances, numerous television commercials and has just completed a role in Rip Off, Canadian film - award - winner Don and investigations have been instituted to explore the possibility of combining the operations of the two forest-products companies." The statement said the nature and terms of the combination will depend on the outcome of the investigations. In Victoria, Lands and Forests Minister Ray Williston said he was aware merger talks were going on. He added: "I wouldn't stand in the way of a merger if it is conducted on a proper basis However, I would want to see all the fine print before I gave any approval to such a move." Columbia Cellulose has two pulp mills at Prince Rupert and a third at Castlegar, in southeastern B.C. Bulkley Val ley has invested $25 million in the first stage of a forestry development at Houston in the central interior. Bulkley Valley is a private comprny owned by Bowaters Canadian Corp., a subsidiary of the world-wide Bowaters Corp., and Consolidated Bath-urst, based in Montreal. Columbia Cellulose is 91 per cent owned by Celanese Corp. of America, based in New York. The balance is publicly owned. Both companies hold large blocks of timber to supply their mills, but under different forms' of tenure. They're a great team, that crazy cast of characters from the Lethbridge label even if they've got a puckish sense of humour about Alberta's history. But behind that label is a great tradition that doesn't change: the big league flavour of Lethbridge Pilsner. It's part of our pioneering past. As rugged as village hockey way back when.

U.S. consumer index climbs WASHINGTON (Reuter) -The cost of living in the United States rose another 0.2 per cent in February, but the increase was lower than in the two previous months, the labor department reported today. In January, the consumer price index had advanced by 0.3 per cent and in December 0.5 per cent. Most of the February increase was in food prices, which rose 0.4 per cent. The department said prices of beef and veal rose more than usual and fresh fruit and vegetables also showed substantial advances. The February increase means it cost $119.40 to buy what $100 did in 1967. Cattlemen unhappy with action CALGARY (CP) - The Western Stock Growers Association has asked the Alberta cabinet to review Canadian wheat board policies on the movement of feed grains and possibly request changes. Chris Mills, secretary of the stock growers association, said cattlemen are unhappy with increased federal involvement in the movement of feed grains. These restrictions are partially responsible for inter-provincial controls on the movement of other farm goods, notably poultry and eggs, he said. "This is of concern to Alberta, the largest cattle-producing province which sends1 a large percentage of its product into inter-provincial trade." URGE NEW POLICIES Mr. Mills said farmers and ranchers are also concerned with the problems associated with game and hunters and have asked the province to formulate new policies. "Too many people seem to feel it costs- land owners nothing to feede game, maintain habitat and suffer constant harassment from hunters. "Unless some means is found to reimbursing land owners for these costs, then it obviously pays farmers to get rid of the game and the habitat as rapidly as possible." Wells is leaking oil into the Mackenzie River. James Washie says the oil has been "seeping into the river at Norman Wells and flowing north 120 miles to Fort Good Hope." Although there fa no immediate threat to the fish in the Fort Good Hope area, "if the situation stays the way it is fishing will suffer badly next year," he said. Mr. Washie has j u s t completed a 16-day tour of the Mackenzie areas of the Northwest Territories. The brother- hood conducted public meetings to determine concerns of the native peoples in the areas. "Everybody is concerned about (oil) tankers in Arctic waters," he said. "But the Mackenzie River is being overlooked. Somebody seems to be trying to keep this situation quiet." DENIES CLAIM Frank Spencer, Imperial Oil public affairs advisor, denied there is any spillage from the refinery at Norman Wells. "The effluent is absolutely clean," he said. "There is no sign of anything going into the river." He said the company is proud of the quality of the effluent at the plant. Norman Wells is 850 miles north of Edmonton, about midway between Great Slave Lake and the Mackenzie Delta.

More goes into a Volkswagen than just hard work FROM THE CONGO The bulk of industrial diamonds come from The Congo. No, this picture isn't a cheat. The luggage in the photograph wi// go into the VW in the photograph. How? First of all, that's no ordinary Volkswagen up there. It's a Super Beetle. With a trunk that carries twice as much as any beetle ever. (That takes care of 1 suitcase, 2 overnight bags and an attache case.) And in case you'd forgotten, every Volkswagen comes with a rear seat that folds down to create a cavernous 14.1 cubic feet of luggage space. (That takes care of the other 4 suitcases, 5 overnight bags, 4 travel bags, and 3 train cases.) Alas, all these years we've been known mostly for our uncanny dependability. Not for our uncanny luggage story. But, as you can see, more goes into a VW than just a fierce attention to detail. A good deal all around, considering you only have to put $2,249.*' into one in the first placa Price bawd on suggested nathrom retail price F.O.B. East and West F.O.E.
