History has suppressed usually been Canada." Dr. Saywell, dean of the fac- ulty of arts at York University in Toronto, said only in the last 10 years has it possible to "write true Canadian history." He said, Ontario is taking a backward step by saying il will remove prejudice from school textbooks. "Education is a failure if it doesn't teach enough about one's country. Prejudice is part of our country's said Dr. Saywell. COLLEGES The Toronto educator also took a potshot at indiscrim- inate building of many com- munity colleges.

Commercial- PuWic Buildings- north SCALl: 1 ho knows what evil lurks? ASSURING DOWNTOWN PROSPERITY Cily council has taken a bold step to stimulate ihe growth of the central business dislricj by intro- ducing a plan to bring a large part of the property under city ownership. The plan is incorporated In a downtown development scheme bylaw which is scheduled for public hearing Oct. 24. To provide a solid parcel of property for an integrated development of commercial and govern- ment facilities, the scheme wilt see 3rd and 4th St. and 5th Ave., within the broken line boundary on the map, closed. In ihe area immediately of 5th St. and south of 4lli Ave. n large commercial development Is likely, with Woodwards as the cenlre. That means ihe demolition of buildings in the area including ihose on the side of 5lh St. between 4th and 5th Ave. West of 4th St., from 5th to 6th Ave., public building Sixth South development is planned with the provincial government seeking the land for a new judge's court and other facilities. Parking is tentatively planned for the Marshall Au1a Wreckers property, but that could change. Not all land is owned by the city yet, but the bylaw provides for expropria- tion where reasonable purchase arrangements cannot be made, Even with expropriation, however, the land will be bought at fair market value. The idea of the complex is says downtown busi- nessman A. W, Shackleford. It will be a "tremendous impetus to the mer- chants and will encourage others la renovate their Jim Spoufos, Downtown Merchant's Association president, says the develop- ment is "very promising" and will make the downtown area ihe "focal point for southern Alberta." PHARMACY FACTS FROM O. C. STUBBS Let's talk about how many grains of caffeine are there in a cup of coffee or a cola drink. The average cup of coffee about five fluid ounces in vol- ume contains approximately 18 milligrams of caffeine per ounce, or from IVz to 2 grains cup, depend- ing upon the f strength of the [coffee brewed. Tea also is ap- 1 proximntely t h e {the same in caf- Ifeine strength ac- Icording, of course, to the strength to which it Ls brewed. Four grains of caffeine normally represents from two to three cups of ordin- ary coffee an amount which rarely causes trouble for any adult. And cola drinks? They average from 3 to 4'z milli- grams of caffeine per ounce of liquid consumed, this being only from to the strength of average coffee brew- ing per ounce. Tlie Food ami Drug Administration limits the caffeine content of cola drinks to 1.2 grains per 12-ouncc bottle, and soft drink manufacturers usually stay well below lliat maximum.
