"We're also veiy happy that it will lie a minority gov- ernment because that means have to concentrate on what you're doing Parachuting biggest game" in world By BOB BLAKELEY Siincoe Reformer S1MCOE, Ont. (CP) Ex- perienced sport parachutists describe parachuting as "ihe biggest head game, in Ihe world." They say you have lo con- centrate on v.hat you are doing. Tf you let ;.mir Irady do what it wants to do yon may get hart or it may prove fatal. Vic Borghese demands that his studenls learning the sport have at least six hours of ground school training prior to their first jump. He teaches part of the course at his home In Guelph and part at the Simcoe airport. Mr. Borghese, who began parachuting 10 year ago, won't allow a student to jump unless the beginner has at- oears Is your battery dying?

The course is intensive and de- signed to make the mind and muscles work. The lessons include a bit of historical background. The first parachute was designed bv Leonardo da Vinci in the 10th century. The design hasn't changed much to the present. The first jump didn't come until much later when the Frnch decided the invention had possibilities. It took the necessity bom of two world wars to bring parachutes into their own. LACKED CONTROL The first militarv para- chutes had no modifications. There was little control and they were almost impossible to steer. The jumper was at Ihe mercy of the wind- pushed around, landing some- times In trees, among wires or on church steeples. Now all military surplus parachutes have a hole at the top called an apex. The apex allows some air to escape, de- creasing the sway of the juniper. The hole is made by cutting away material. Today the jumper is able to control his forward speed and where he wants to land by the use of wooden toggles at- tached lo risers. A pull on a riser wil' result in a turn. For the first few limes the jump master spots the exit point and tells the student where lo get out. On the word "ready" Uie juniper gets out of the airplane, feet on the outside step, hands on tho wing strut and head back. On the command "go" tho Jumper propels himself away from the plane at an angle and the static line opens the parachute in three seconds. In case of failure there is a re- serve rip cord. The first time the Jumper leaves Ihe airplane at feet. After the main parachute has opened he looks up to see if there is any malfunction, makes a complete turn to get the feel of the equipment and then fastens his eyes on groisid control. The parachute has a For- ward speed of five miles an hour, if there is a wincY speed of 10 m.p.h., providing the comnlete ride is with the wind. Ground control judges the wind and parachute speed and has the student either back into the wind, decreasing for- ward sqeed, or face the wind, increasing forward speed. The .'.mbination results in a steady rate of descent, land- ing the jumper at or near the drop zone. The student Is taught to roll In the direction he Is travel- ling when he touches the ground. In this way he avoids injuries. But If it Is dom wrong sprained ankles or bro- ken hones may result. The theory of the procedure Is taught in a three-hour talk session at Guelph and three hours at the drop zone. Once the theory is mastered the student is ready for his first jump. For me that first jump was the most beautiful, fantastic and moving experi- ence of my life.

ML By IRVING C. WIIYNOT Canadian Press Business Edi- tor The day of the little black box In the Canadian securities incYjstry may be closer than most people realize. The country-wide sys- tem of handling stock trades through a computer rather than on the floor of one of the six como into being as early as 1975. Tlie idea behind such an op- eration is to make the system more efficient and to control ever-rising costs. Tlie total ben- i efits have been described as "quite substantial" by a To- j ronlo sludy. Two major barriers are still to be faced: call it the major exchanges. differing standards of the various provincial secu ritics commissions, which have jurisdiction over stock trading activity. But the exchanges already have co-operated in many fields of common inlcrest and optim- isls in the industry feel these differences can Ire resolved. UNDER WAV AT TPE The Toronto Slock Exchange, tho one witli most of the busi ness, already has adopted a staged approach toward com. puler-assisted trading. If all goes well, it may be oper alional in lliree years. One more example of co-op- eration came last week when tho Toronto exchange agreed lo carry Calgary exchange trad' ing Information on ils ticker tape system. It also agreed to use of the Toronlo computer for settlement of Calgary trades. President J. R. Kimber of the TSE saw this as a step In the right direction. "The co-operative efforts be- wccn Toronlo and Calgnry will hopefully lend to similar ar- rangements between the other exchnngcs in lie snld. "Normally, exchanges nrc extremely jealous of Ihclr own 'acllitics. But, In Canada, thcro is a move to bring them to- gether. "One could be very hopeful that the present spirit of co-op- eration between the exchanges will bad to a stronger Cana- dian capital market which will better serve Canada as a and each of its re- gions." LINK REGIONAL MARKETS There is a similar move in the United States where various commissions and government committees have agreed that one national market is desir- able. Regional markets would not disappear but would be Jinked to one central tape re- J porling all Much tlie same is envisaged j for method whereby all orders for an individual se- curity are brought together in one system. "In the past, distance war- ranted tlie existence of sepa- rate market Mr. Kimber said. "This may still apply where the distance is extreme or time differences create a problem. To a large extent modem com- munications augmented by the computer have removed dis- tance as a valid reason for sep- arate markets for one security within one country." But he assured that (his would not mean the end of the regional exchange. "A regional exchange, prop- erly run, can play its role. It can supervise the trading, com- pile the statistics and meet the need of the local investors for a secondary market." Canada has six exchanges. In 197J, the Toronto exchange han- dled more than 69 per cent of the business, on a value basis, and the Montreal and Canadian exchanges about 23 per cent. Vancouver had more than seven per cent and Calgary and Winnipeg less than one per cent each.
