Nearly one-third of that money was spent for merchan- dise, beverages, entertainment, 14 per cent on food, 18 per cent on lodging and Ihe rest on ;ransportation including gas and oil. In 1970 foreign tourists, most- ly Americans, spent more than billion in Canada "a igure that should be well over billion by Mr. Thom- son said. About 115 million American tourists made trips to states which border on Canada with- out crossing into Canada.

Travel expenditures account for eight to 8.5 per cent of con- sumer expenditures in this country. A recent research study esti- mated that every dollar of travel receipts contributes to the gross national product. Of that amount, 31 cents are direct taxes and 33 cents are indirect taxes. The U.S. government is spending large amounts of money to promote Canadian and American tourists away irom Canada into its own coun- try, Mr. Thomson said. It is doing so in order to off- et "its adverse balance of pay- icnts position, including a rowing annual travel deficit."

In bygone days, before thej North American standard of living reached its current scale, the heart attack was rel- atively unheard of. Today it is one of the con- tinent's major killers, but re- mains only a minor threat to people living in underdeveloped countries. A recently-completed 10-year study in the United States dis- closed that the three "most outstanding risk factors" lead- ing to heart attacks are: a high intake of dietary fat and cholesterol, cigarette smoking and high blood pressure. are lesser factors, not clearly I ily case histories of heart at- defined, which lead to heart tacks. ailment These include the lack Unfortunately there is no complete way of controlling the disease by limiting cholesterol intake, because it is impossible to take all cholesterol out of the diet.

The final stage occurs when the arteries are so thick a blood clot forms, completely depriv- ing a portion of the heart of blood. This stage is often known as "hardening of the arteries."

A Lethbridge area hospital planning council steering com- mittee has been organized to review an Alberta Hospital Ser- vices Commission draft order- in-council which will set the regulations governing the council concept. However, the council and re- gionalized government concept may have a hurdle to over- came. Many aiitonomous groups with governmental powers fear their autonomy is endangered. Frank Russell, of Leth- bridge, the council's interim chairman said the hospital plan- nine council gathers people "in- terested in health services into one body to consolidate health care planning for this city." At an organizational meeting Tuesday members reviewed the AHSC draft, which also sets ASPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP Construction Co. ltd.

When the council concept is fully implemented, groups charged with health financial developm e n t s or procedural changes will be required to sub- mit their plans to the hospital council for approval. "No proposals for change will be considered without obtain- ing the opinion of the health planning Mr. Russell said. The council then forwards its recommendations to the AHSC in Edmonton which, in turn, bases its decision on the coun- cil's advice. "It (the hospital planning council) won't reduce the pow- er of hospital Mr. Russell added. "It seta up a buffer zone, a hurdle which must be cleared, before changes by the board are implemented." The council, which will ex- tend its course of operation to the Oldman River Planning Commission, is studying pos- sible membership composition changes. Changes mil have to be decided upon by the AHSC. The hospital planning coun- cil's power will also be deter- mined by the commission.

Heart failure leading to pre- mature death, attacks in three distinct stages. The first, the shortest and least painful, occurs when an individual with thickened ar- teries engages in physical ex- ercise which the heart cannot adjust to. Thickened arteries result when calcium deposits form on the walls of the arteries which pump oxygen containing blood to the heart. When an artery thickens to a degree where it will not al- low the blood to flow in as great a volume as required, a steady pain shoots across the chest until the physical activity is stopped. A medical drug can be ob- tained from a doctor to widen the arteries. The second stage develops when the drug no longer stops the pain considered to be STEVE'S QUALITY MEATS AND CONFECTIONERY COAIDALE PHONE 345-3929 SPECIAL BEEF and PORK SALE!

Calcium invades the smooth muscle tissue that makes up the artery wall, through which the blood flows freely, and causes blood to stick and even- tually form a blood clot. When the third stage comes the portion of the heart cut off from its blood supply dies. If the clot breaks off before stopping the blood flow, the clot may be jetted to some other portion of the body, cut- ting off the blood supply in that area. When this occurs that part of the body frequently becomes paralyzed, or it the clot forms in a brain artery, a condition known as stroke follows.

Prospective employers "may advertise over the name of the Canada Manpower Centre and channel all replies to the CMC, thus reducing considerably the screening time which will be initially involved.

Youths still free No car thefts, clothing thefts or any other criminal incidents which could assist two young British Columbians make good their Wednesday prison escape have been reported in the Leth- bridge area. Security has been tightened along Alberta roads, and rail- way detectives have been asked to increase their efforts to foil the escape from the Lethbridge Correctional Institute, of Ron- ald Kellingon, 17, and Jean Charles Golish, 18, both of Vic- toria. Wednesday's escape was the third time the pair had made good an escape from B.C. and Alberta detention centres. Both were serving a three- month sentence at the Leth- bridge Correctional Institute for escaping legal custody and a charge of breaking and enter- ing. They were to be transported back to B.C. to face illegal es- cape and auto theft charges in that province, where they would have been tried as minors be- cause of their ages. Earlier the pair had escaped city cells while awaiting trans- fer back to B.C. Their escape Wednesday night occurred after they had sawed their way through the Correctional Institute's televi- vision and card room window bars. At the time of their escape the two were wearing drab grey prison uniforms. Neither is considered danger- ous at present, however, prison officials warn this situation could change. Kellington has been known to assume the alias name Bruce James Shinon in the past. Police officials feel the pair may still be in hiding in the Lethbridge area and advise residents to notify the RCMP or city police, rather than appre- hending live youths by them- selves.

Junior Achievement has six nain objectives. It provides ligh school students with: Knowledge of the values, reedoms and responsibilities rf the business system; Experience in the organiza- ion and management of a busi- ness; Motivation for leadership through the development of skills, abilities and confi- dence; Demonstration of the rela- :ionships within business and between business and the com- munity; Supplement to the formal ducational experience of by a constructive, learn- mg-by-doing experience; Preview of career opportuni- les in business.
