Fun furs scuttled by sky-high prices NEW YORK (AP) Furs have become a status symbol, says designer Roger Stevens. They should be at the rate prices are going up. Many furs have risen 50 to 100 per cent in the last year, Fox has doubled in price Ra- coon is up 60 to 70 per cent. And mink is up about 40 per cent, according to Robert Sidney, owner of Robert Sidney Furs. Stevens, who designs for Sidney, says the price rise has taken the fun out of furs. "They aren't fun anymore They're a status symbol." Sidney says the skyrocketing prices are "due to the tremendous demand of European and Japanese markets." "The Japanese department stores are buying the manufactured goods and the Europeans are trying to cor- ner the market in the skin form. "When I say fur, I mean fox, sable, martin, mink, muskrat, raccoon, anything that makes up nicely." In the meantime. Stevens has designed a collection starting with a sheared rabbit poncho, trimmed in a guanaco for a bargain He moves along to a karate jacket sweater in kit fox paws trimmed in gold suede for or a piece beaver polo coat for The collection climbs on up to a golden bleached raccoon jacket for and a silver fox coat for The David Crystal line featured the shirt look, as always Only this time, the shirt is more in fashion than ever. By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) There is a lot to think about nowadays, if you are in the market for a new stove In the last few years there have been in- novations that go beyond tim- ing devices or rotisseries. Depending on how much money you're willing to spend, of course, you can get stoves that clean or partly clean themselves, that have smooth cooking tops, infra- red ovens or microwave ovens. Robert Harris of GSW Appliances Ltd. says he is not convinced people think carefully over the features they want before they buy a stove. He says: "Think about your cooking habits, and what features you would use. Some look attractive on the floor, but you'll get the range home and only use the feature once." He says many people buy a stove and refrigerator at the time and with an amount set in their minds to cover both. If you spend a lot on extras on one, he says, you may shortchange yourself on the other. SELF-CLEAN COSTLY C. D. Nadkarni, also of GSW, says the demand for self-cleaning is growing, and he says there are two ver- sions. It sounds complicated, but this is the way he puts it: "The catalytic system is a continuous clean that has a catalyst in the enamel of the oven that disintegrates fat and splatter. It doesn't do a com- plete job. If you spill gravy, you'll have to wipe that up. "Cleanness is a relative thing, and for some housewives, this wouldn't be good enough. "The self-cleaning pyrolytic oven burns it away at 850 to 900 degrees. Then all you do is wipe away the ashes." He says the self-clean feature might add to the cost of a stove, depending on what other features are in- volved. One of the newest changes is the so-called counter-top stove. "The utensils have to have Join protest VANCOUVER Federal government employed nurses working in British Columbia have joined their counterparts across Canada in protesting Ottawa's latest contract offer The mass absence affects most of the 2.200 registered nurses in the Professional In- stitute of Public Service of Canada.

If you want to make scrambled eggs, they won't burn if you forget them." Mr. Nadkarni says these stoves can cost as much as but that price includes self-clean TRY THE 'GOURMET' The "gourmet" overt is an extra oven used for rotisserie and broiling. It cooks with infra-red heat, and the oven stays cool while the food heats. Mr. Hams, product manager for microwave ovens, says a portable microwave oven now costs about He says the cost has dropped in two years and should come down more. "What you're paying for is speed. It cooks food at six or seven minutes a pound com- pared with the normal 20 to 30 minutes. "One area of limitation is that something that has to be cooked a long time to be broken down, a stew, for in- stance, can't be done in a microwave oven. The other is when you need hot, dry air, to brown a pie crust. It won't do that." But he says the shrinkage on meat is cut appreciably and frozen vegetables can be cook- ed as is, their color and vitamins preserved. He suggests that if you are comparing brands of micro- wave ovens, you check the cook book that comes with them. He says most recipes will convert once you're used to the new timing, but a good microwave cook book is a help to start with. EDMONTON (CP) About 15 women carrying signs reading "Indian yesterday, to- day nothing" demonstrated in front of the federal building here to protest a recent Supreme Court of Canada decision. Dressed in black or wear- ing traditional Indian clothing, the women were mourning the Bill of Rights in light of the court's ruling that an Indian woman who marries a white man loses her Indian status. An Indian man who marries a white woman retains his In- dian status. Mrs. Ross said that because of the ruling against Jeanette Lavell, women in general are no longer protected under the Bill of Rights. She said the court's decision meant many Indian women would "lose their whole iden- tity and birthright." "The only time a non-status Indian is welcome back on the reserve is if she comes in a coffin. Saves1 Playtex living stretch bra reg.
