South Phono 328-OOS2 Prices go down across Canada By BARBARA ROBSON The Canadian Press Food prices dipped slightly in March in several Canadian cities while the federal govern- ment debated policies to limit increases to consumers. A Cross-Canada survey by The Canadian Press of 13 cities showed declines in the total price of 17 standard items in seven urban centres. Top cuts of beef and pork fell in price in some cities but rose in others. The price of chicken generally was down and tomatoes dipped sharply in price in several cities. Potato prices showed the most rapid and general increase. A reduction of about a 100 pounds in the wholesale price of sugar resulted in slight decreases in retail prices. Among government measures, a seven-cents- a-pound subsidy to beef producers was in- troduced in mid-month, but Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan warned that a dairy products subsidy cannot go higher. Agriculture officials indicated in March that dairy farmers would soon be granted a crease on the price of 100 pounds of manufacturing milk, but refused to disclose what additional subsidies, if any, would be applied to offset retail price increases. Bread prices remained steady in most cities after the Bakery Council of Canada agreed to limit price increases to those authorized by the food prices review board. Meanwhile, the review board, in its third quarterly report, predicted a less-rapid rise in food costs this year if weather conditions permit a good harvest. The CP survey is based on 17 items priced on the last Tuesday of each month. It is not in- tended to compare prices among cities. Items are priced in the same supermarkets each month and show the lowest regular price for the same items or nearest comparable items. The survey began in April. The shopping basket includes a pound of sirloin-tip roast of beef, all-beef wieners, centre- cut loin roast of pork, first-grade chicken, ground chuck, frozen cod fillets, first-grade butter, tomatoes, frozen green peas, Mclntosh apples and drip coffee. It also includes one dozen medium eggs, one quart of whole milk, a 24-ounce loaf sliced white bread, 10 pounds first-grade potatoes, a 24-ounce can of first-grade halved pears and five pounds of white granulated sugar. prices continued to climb in March, offset by decreases in fish, egg, potato and sugar prices.

Ask Pamela B. Friendly. Or Elessar Merlyn Tetramariner. Or, for that matter, Robert Tsisko-Tsis- kovitch-Tony-Tsisko. Some Ontario resi- dents changed their names last increase of more than 200 over the pre- vious year and double the to- tal of 10 years ago. They'll tell you that names can be a nuisance. And a change can transform your life. Pamela B. Friendly said that until last year she felt unfriendly because of an un- satisfactory job and a ho-hum lifestyle. "But then I met this incred- ible psychological mathemati- cian and be showed me the whole problem was with my old middle Susan had a "bad vibrating frequency" so Miss Friendly had it legally changed to Bey- random combination of favorable letters which gave her "a more balanced name." It vibrates beautifully, said the 25-year-old Toronto talent agent. "Since I made the change last October, life has been a bowl of cherries. "I've got a better job, with better pay. I'm meeting bet- ter-balanced people. It's af- fected my love But life has been no bowl of cherries for Andrew Latimer Goodrich Jr., of Oakville, OnL. 19-year-old son of a busi- ness executive who wants to further his career as an aspir- ing writer by becoming Eles- sar Merlyn Tetramariner. He told Judge Alan Sprague in Halton County court he wants to be known as Elessar after a character in J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Merlyn was the fabled Welsh magician and Tetra- mariner is Andrew-Elessar's own invention, denoting "a four-way sailor throughout the world." Judge Sprague gave the sailor a few months' shore IC3VC "I want to give the boy some time to think about this decision it is a bit strange, you said the judge. Robert Tsisko (pronounced Cisco) also of Oakville, comes from a family that has used four different surnames with- out any help from the courts. Originally named Tsisko, the native Macedonians were forced to change their name to Tsiskovitch when their country was overrun by the Bulgarians in the 1912-1913 Balkan wars. WeeWhimsv Allrn Mil Se sent ongmtf jrt tor her Quote. After emigrating to To- ronto, the family found it eas- ier to get along using the sur- name Tony, the given name of Robert's father. But Tsisko, a 31-year-old sales manager, reverted to the original family name be- cause "it's handy to be the only one in the phone book." Name changes take about a month if there are no com- plications. They cost about to in legal fees and involve a brief appearance before a judge. As Samuel Miernicki-Papie- rowski of Toronto put it when asked why he was changing his name to Sam Parker: "Are you We Will Be In Your Corner FOWLEITS NOOK OPEN SOON!
