Hrushka says some of lik 3 customers from the town, miles west erf Calgary, never re vo shopped anywhere else, 'Some of our customer! uldn't even know the mean-; of self-service. 'They don't like to be I don't think they would e self-service at all. 'We know just about all our customers on a nama sis, even know the brands ey use. 'When a person comes fa, ualiv we know exactly what pick off the shelves for em. Sinco we're here any-ay, we figure we might just well help Ihe customers out." Mr. Niskanen said some cus-mers "haven't set foot in ;re for 20 years." "They just In their der each morning and we da-ver it. We know all their nd dislikes." Although the shelves still hold othing, hardware and garden quipment along wilh the gro-cries, time has forced hanges. Custom-made suits, for which travelling tailor used to take neasuremenls, no longer are vailable, said Mr. Niskanen. we used lo sell shoes, urnilure and women's fine, ancy stuff; you know what I nean. We've had to cut down i bit." Also gone is the cattle feed, he post office and the haberdashery, but they are not forgotten. CREDIT COMES EASILY Many customers are miners at the nearby coal operation and they can get their purchases charged directly against Iheir pay. Credit comes easily lo virtually all regular customers. "We're gelling a few people these days who take a job at Ihe mine, load up with supplies Ihen high'lail Mr. Niskanen said, "hut most families pay up when asked to." Mr. Hrushka often takes a few minutes lo lalk lo tourists, who pass through heading lo Banff a few miles wesl, and even take them on a tour of the premises. And, there's always time for Ihe train crews who bend a leduie enough to leave their iesel engine parked a few eps from the back door, so hey can slip over to pick up something on their way home. t Vancouver, Calgary (Supplied Iiy Dolicrty, Met LAST BID OH S B.m.

Furthermore, Ihe f veslem-owTied companies and he oil-consuming nations have lad to yield power to Ihe producing nations. The signing of m agreement on participation vill put the imprimatur on this shift in control. The negotialions on the producing nations' participation in concessions on their soil began n March when the companies iccepted the concept "in principle." The producing countries demanded an immediate 20 per cent share of Ihe oil companies' operations wilh an ultimate increase to 51 per cent control. They offered to compensate the companies for Hie 20 per cent slice on the basis of net book value of above-ground assets. NOT ADEQUATE The companies contended that this was far from atf3quate and lhat consideration, should be given to the billions of dollars of future profits they would forego on the vast unproduced il reserves. Most informed sources be-eve that the final settlement will be close to OPEC's original wsitions with some face-saving elements given the companies. The negotiators have held six >revious series of meetings in 5eneva, Saudi Arabia, Lorn on and San Francisco. The two Bides were still far apart, but a session in late August in jebanon. and In early Septem in London produced a more Denial atmosphere.

The news about Lin, who once was designated the heir of Vlao Tse-tung, is not parti cu-arly new. It long has been rumored abroad and was confirmed by Chinese in high places In Peking and elsewehrc two months ago. What made these statemen s startling is that they came not from a high official, but from a clothing .store clerk, a newspaper man and a member of a ocal revolutionary committee. They made them in a Shanghai park to America: journalists in the presence of about 20 Chinese bystanders. The comments showed the es-tent to which China in recen months has become a more open wo mood i Not everything can be said on ly subject. But compared to e tight secrecy which pre-ailed on political Issues when s writer last visited China in pril, 1971, the change seemed lenomenal.

But they rew the line at political topics. lat was China's business and ot to be shared with visiting orrespon dents, they indicated. People who probed too eeply, were given short nega-ve answers. But the new mood of open-ess was mirrored in 23rd celebations through ie country Sunday. Instead of lassive parades of official in Shanghai, there vas informal entertainment in he public parks by jugglers, acrobats, musicians, actors, gymnasts and children.
