BBANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Enterprises Assn. Q I have a friend who i: taking calcium tablets for hL arthritis. Isn't calcium the cause of arthritis? A No. Rheumatoid artliri tis is probably caused by a virus and the cause of osteo- arthritis is not known.

Q What is the difference Auto Workers Reject New Wage Contract DETROIT (AP) Represent- atives of the United Auto Work- ers rank and file voted over- whelmingly today to reject new contract offers from the Big Three auto-makers. In sessions marked by loud cheering, the offers from the auto firms were turned down by the TJAW's three 200-member councils representing workers at General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. The voice votes were taken after the angry leadership of the union went before the coun- cils to denounce the offers, which the automakers said would give workers a 714-per- cent wage boost in the first year of the contact and a three-per- cent increase in each of the last two years. Emil Mazey, TJAW secretary- treasurer, indicated the union would select a strike target soon. The union's 25-rnember in- ternational executive board met to study the matter. Irving Bmestone, co-director of the union's GM department, said his council had unani- mously recommended that GM be selected as the strike target.

A Degenerative and hy- pertrophic arthritis are syn onyms for osteoarthritis, whicli comes on late in life and is much milder than rheumatoic arthritis, which may occur a any age.

Bonaveiiture Sale Price Criticized OTTAWA (CP) Alfred Hales, chairman of the Com- mons public accounts commit ee, Wednesday described as "ridiculously low" the price paid by a Vancouver scrap deal- er for the aircraft carrier Bon- aventure. The dealer, William Kennedy, said he paid less than :or the ship. Mr. Hales, Conservative MP 'or Wellington, said m an inter- iew that this would not even cover the amount of money pent on painting the ship dur- ng her 1967 refit. The paint job cost Mr. Hales said the "sad saga f the Bonnie is one of our jreatest examples of "lut is not the personal property if the current government. The itireaucrats to whom public money is entrusted must bear ome of the responsibility. Mr. Hales also said he hopes s committee will look into the ase of the new CF-5 jet fighter- omber. of these planes are oing directly from the assem- ly line in Montreal into storage angars because the 'defence de- artment cannot find a use for hem. Record Western Grain Shipments Are Scheduled WINNIPEG (CP) The Grain Transportation Commit- tee said today a record move- ment of 400 million bushels of prairie grain will be shipped from country elevators from Aug. 1 to Dec. 31 this year. The committee said following a meeting here that the "excep- tional movement" is needed to meet current commit- ments and compares with bushels of grain whipped during the same period last year. W. C. MeNamara, committee chairman and chief commis sioner of the Canadian Whea Board, said the shipping pro- gram is based mainly on firm export commitments for wheat barley and oats, and estimates of sales for other grains. "The shipping program re viewed by the committee rep- resents the minimum quantities of grain we expect to move from country elevators during the balance of the calend a r said Mr. McNamara. GOREN ON BRIDGE B? CHARLES H. GOREN IS 1970: If The CMtlta Tritai] Both vulnerable. West fleals. NOHTH AA4 VAQJJJ2 0763 WEST EAST A .107 AQJ85 VH VK85J 0 A Q J 10 9 4 2 0 Void SOUTH AK96J OK85 The bidding; West North East South 80 Pass 3 NT Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Deuce of Today's hand produced a Significant swing when it was dealt recently in a teara-of- four match. A final contract of three no trump was reached at both tables on an Identical sequence of bids. At one table, West opened the queen of diamonds and tlecbrer had an easy time of it. East discarded a spade and South won the trick in his hand with the king. The ten of hearts was led for a finesse. East, was in with the king of hearts, but he had no effective return since he had no diamonds and could not put his partner in to run the suit. East shifted to a club. Declarer put up the ace and ran for cover with nine spades, five hearts, one diamond and one club. At the other table, West refrained from leading his Miit. South was marked with the king of diamonds to warrant his bid of three no trump, and West wanted to get his partner in to make a diamond play thru the declarer. There was the further consideration that if East nad only a singleton diamond, West would cut the line of communications be- tween the two defenders if he opened the queen of dia- monds. West chose to open the deuce of clubs. East put up the king and declarer per- mitted him to hold the trick. The five of clubs was re- turned and South ducked again as West went in with the ten. West reasoned that his partner must be void of diamonds when he failed to shift to that suit at trick two, anil inasmuch as West was in the lead for the last time, he cashed the ace of diamonds before returning the queen of clubs to dislodge South's ace. South was nov? obliged to fall back on the heart finesse. When East turned up with the king, he cashed the jack of clubs' for the setting trick, "However, with the success of the block shipping system and the continuing co-operation of every segment of the grain han- dling industry, I am confident that we will be able to meet all of our domestic and export commitments." The shipping program review- ed by the committee called for a movement of over 245 million bushels of grain to Thun- der Bay terminals from Aug. 1 to Dec. 18. With the heavy movement that began this spring, ship- ments from the Lakehead will total nearly 450 million bushels during the eight month navi- gation season. The program for west coasl poils calls for a movement of more than 120 million bushels while exports through Churchill, Man., will require country ship- ments of about 25 million bush- els during the current shipping sason. The committee said quotas, established under the new qno- ta policies in effect this crop year, will encourage producers to deliver the kind of grain needed to meet sales commit- ments. As a result early quota policy and shipments from the coun- try will be concentrated on those grains required in for- ward positions for shipment in the fall. The heavy shipping pro- gram involves the carrying ca- pacity of almost rail- way boxcars and if the ship- ping requirements are to be met, grain terminals at Thun- :lcr Bay, the w.est coast and Churchill will have to continue operating at close to their max- imum handling capacity. Mr. McNamara said Bales >rospects for the balance of the crop y.ear are very promising. "The present indications are hat the heavy movement )lanncd for the balance of this 'ear will continue until next July."

WHERE AM I SOWS TO SET 10 WlWR OWN THREE COLLARS FORANOTHEK JUST WAIT TIL I CATCH TOE KIP WHO SOLO ME THAT ONE LAST MIDDLE-CLASS ANIMALS By Hugh Laidman Welfare Committee Snubbed CALGARY (CP) The Wel- fare Rights Group has refused to appoint a member to an ap- peal committee for welfare re- cipients on the grounds the board is "another unworkable and unwieldy government scheme." The group said in a press re- ease that although the commit- ;ee is intended "to ensure wel- 'are citizens a right of appeal against decisions of casework- ers the demands of wel- fare citizens as regards the nake up of committee lave been ignored." Social development minister Ray Speaker arbitrarily decid- ed who would be represented on he 12-member committee, the group said, and included only one welfare recipient. "The Calgary Welfare Rights Lroup does not understand how organizations such as Unifarm and the Women's Cultural and nformation Bureau can pos- sibly understand welfare prob- ems." The decision to appoint twc :pecial investigators to exa mine cases of alleged welfare abuse was also criticized. :It is our belief this is a step oward setting up vigilante jroups which will have the righ o pry into our personal lives although we have los ur financial'independence, we ire still first-class citizens will he same'right to privacy as anyone else.
