Humans losing small toes, wisdom teeth EDMONTON (CP) Humans are gradually losing their small toes and wisdom teeth and are reaching puber- ty sooner, says Dr. Phillip Tobias of Johannesburg.

However, bodily changes are likely to have less impact on man's future evolution than they have in the past, he said in an interview Sunday Spiritual, technological and psychological developments would be the keys to future changes. "There may be a flowering of the human spirit such as we've never seen before." Dr. Tobias, head of anatomy at the University of Witwatersrand, specializes in human genetics, anatomy and evolution.

He said a new federal health cost-sharing program was re- jected by B.C. "because of the weaker position of less secure provinces on health care." "We don't mind paying our lair share and a little more to ensure that everyone from here to Newfoundland gets good health care." he said. He said NDP policies on welfare and the minimum wage have boosted the economy with circulating cash, and said there are 16.000 less people on welfare in Van- couver this month compared to a year ago. He said school tax will be completely removed from land by spring and added it would be removed from homes within five years. The tax revenue would be replaced by corporate tax money, he said, aided by a million Irom Canadian Cellulose Co.

Price rise contines NEW YORK (AP) Shop- pers heading for the super- market in the United States today faced the prospect of more price rises because of the end of the beef-price ceil- ing and the beginning of new regulations on other foods. Not even the experts knew exactly what would happen to the family food bill Many agreed that buying patterns would be a major factor in determining prices. "If the housewives decided the price is too high and don't developed. The freeze is scheduled to end at midnight Tuesday and the early end to the ceiling caused some con- fusion buying, it may go up some." the ceiling on beef was lifted at midnight Sunday after more than five months oi government controls. At the same time, new rules went into effect permitting price increases on other foods to reflect the rising cost of such things as wages and overhead. Dick urges Congress to pass bills WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon is sending Congress a special State of the Union message today calling lor enactment of more than 50 bills backed by his ad- ministration which he said represent "the business of the people." Before submitting the lengthy document. Nixon dis- cussed his legislative agenda in a taped radio address Sun- day. Nixon said Congress should join the executive branch "in making up for the precious time lost this year failing to act on those measures which vitally aflecl every American by going into extra session, if necessary, to complete the people's business before the year ends." The president said the need for action is particularly urgent in six areas- achieving prosperity without inflation, meeting the energy needs, building better communities, making full use of human resources, combatting crime and drugs, and "maintaining a level of national defence that will enable us to maintain peace." "Of these six major areas." he said, "the one that affects all of us most urgently and most directly is the nation's economy." WARNS OF DEFICIT While claiming "substantial progress" in achieving a stable, prosperous economy without inflation. Nixon said: "Programs which the Con- gress either has already pass- ed or is now considering would produce an additional deficit of billioon. and in addition, the Congress has not yet made nearly a billion and a half dol- lars of cuts that I have recom- mended. Ff these actions of Congress stand, the result will be higher prices for every American family." The president asked the public to support congressmen in difficult decisions they face "when confronted with a vote on a bill that would help some ol the people, but that would raise the cost ol living for all the people." Nixon said the questions at issue "are not ones of. par- Republicans versus Democrats" or of the president versus Congress. Acknowledging that in some cases "there are real philosophical differences over liow best to meet the needs we Nixon said: "The American tradition has always been that we argue these differences out, we com- promise some, we settle others by a test of strength. Hut it is important that we act. that we decide, that we get on with the business of government. The iiol is one of non- confidenct ..t the New Democrats, the effective balance of power in the Com- mons, say they will vote with the government. The NDP announced Friday it would be irresponsible to plunge the country into an election before bills to raise old age pensions and family allowances are passed. The bills are part of the gov- ernment anti-inflation package, introduced Tuesday. The main points are interim 12 a m o n t h family allowances, bread and milk subsidies and a requested price freeze on crude oil, which the government hopes will spread to all oil products, including gasoline. Last month the government proposed to adjust pensions and old age supplements on a quarterly basis. Commons approval for this was granted last week, giving single pen- sioners a basic increase starting next month. The family allowances bill and a bill to increase public service pensions by as much as 11.4 per cent likely will be approved this week. WANT MORE The Conservatives contend that these measures are in- adequate Party whip Tom Bell, says the requested crude oil price Ireeze and the ceiling on domestically-soid wheat "have the West up in arms." The government has set a two-price system tor domes- tically-sold wheat which es- tablishes a ceiling of a bushel, below prevailing inter- national prices. The house resumed sitting Aug. 30 to order striking rail employees back to work, then to contend with the rising cost of living. House leaders have been meeting to discuss adjourn- ment plans, says NDP House Leader Stanley Knowles. However, no agreement has been reached and talks had broken off until after the non- confidence vote today. The summer recess, which started July 27, was to have continued until Oct. 15. Matters could become com- plicated for the Liberals this week, however, with the release of the August figures on unemployment as well as the cost of living. Statistics Canada releases the former Tuesdav. the latter Thursday. FACE "MESS" "Certainly the consumer price index will be higher." says Mr. Bell. "But un- employment is expected to show a rise as well." If "things are still a mess, we might fight an adjourn- ment motion." However, the Conservatives would not obstruct the two bills still to get Commons approval. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield and Conservative fi- nance critic James Gillies are expected to lead off today's cost-of-living debate. The non- confidence motion is Mr. Stan- field's. "We intend to show that the government is using a piece- meal approach in trying to solve inflation." says Mr. Bell. Standing in the 264-seat commons: Liberal 109, Conservative 107, NDP 31.
