That's how far thousands go some Sundays to let their taste buds revel in the himie- IlKidC 0 (111 f t Of .1. A. jUacKay. Most of them conic the lf> miles from Calgary and travel the patched and winding 1A Highway, once the in a j or route io Banff. Their trip hits a high spot in the middle of MacKay's geii- eral store confronted" by .'15 regular flavors and one weekly special. Fifteen cents Imy.s one scoop and an extra dime gets a total of two, But the question is: do people drive to a small, un- pretentious community of just to buy an ice cream cone? On a good Sunday as many as 4.500 cones are sold by Mr. MacKay and he says there arc two reasons. ''It's some place to go with something to do at the end of the drive." The other reason Is the ice cream. "We're making a quality not Irving to we must or they wouldn't be coming back." Mr. MacKay, a Scotsman who displays the tartan of his grandfather's clan nn the bulk packages of ice cream, says when many of his customers return "they bring their friends who ninic to visit them." lie got into the business 10 years ago when the Trans- Canada Highway was built and the town was ignored as tourist traffic whizzed past eight miles away. "1 was toying with several ideas of what to do; I would give anything a whirl." Along came a salesman who suggested soft ice cream, then coming into popularity, and the business took off. I sell maybe one soft ice cream cone to 100 hard."

Tel. or JOIN NOW AT LEISTER'S MUSIC STORE, downtown through Ihe store's front, poo- pic kept asking for hard ice c-reiini. lie decided to meet the de- mand, bought an ice cream freezer and arranged for a commercial dairy to nsscmhle the basic ingredients to his specifications. Tile recipe is secret. He adds the flavors himself run-of-the-mill things like, vanilla and chocolate to the more exotic tangerine and is not ad- verse lo experimenting to find a new taste. Word of his ice cream, which he does not advertise except for a wallet-sized cal- endar, soon got around and people began converging on Ihe town. They converted the nor- mally quiet Sunday streets into car-lined parking lots. Mr. MacKay has increased his ice cream facilities three times and if business, which is currently ahead of the 1970 record sales, continues to grow "we'll throw the grocer- ies out." He now has three ice cream freezers and keeps between 250 and .'iOO gallons in stock. On a good day he goes through as much as gal- lons. Some of Ihe flavor ideas come from people looking for a favorite or people who arc just confused. A woman who hail attended a wedding came in looking for confctli iee cream, but Mr. MacKay had never heard of il. He made it anyway by add- ing small candies lo the mix which left a speckled appear- ance. Milk shakes are also served, but he gave up on sundaes. "The staff used to put on too much topping. If the first one was not on straight they would throw on another. A business can't afford that." Although summer is the busy time a lot of people come in the winter "as long as the sun is shining." The business wes caught by surprise with a sudden rush last spring. His nine-member Sunday staff was untrained and peo- ple were lined up out the door and down the street. ''But they didn't seem to mind the wait, which keeps amazing me." House rules dictatorial MONTREAL (CP) Frank Howard, NDP member in the Commons for Skeena, says Par- liament operates under dictaior- ical rules that place all power in the hands of government. "Parliament does not operate by the nilos of democracy it operates under rules more akin to a he told more than 200 persons at a St. James Literary Society meet- ing. Although democratically elected, Parliament was subject (o the whim of government and denied ordinary MPs any real voice in public affairs, Mi Howard said. He blamed this situation on successive regimes that, bank- ing on public apathy, had used their parliamentary majority to push through rules expanding their domination over the legis- lative. "Government is responsible to Parliament in theory the NDP member added. "Govern- ment is able to dictate to Par liament through the party tern and to control Parlia- ment by controlling its business. "A committee of Parliament cannot examine or study a sin- gle solitary item unless the gov- ernment introduces a measure in the House lo refer that item to the committee. "Even reports of committees can be ignored by the gov- ernment if it dislikes (heir con- tents.
