Student spends summer helping yacht owners TORONTO (CP) Keith Crocker had a summer job that any student would envy. Lazing on the deck of a luxury yacht with a cool drink at short distance is not exactly tough work. But that was only one part of his job. The other part involved cleaning the yacht from top to bottom, painting it, rigging it, providing sailing instruction, tending bar, or doing any one of the many other chores required on a boat of any size. That is what Keith was doing, giving yacht owners and their friends more time to enjoy themselves. Keith, 21, a third-year student of physical science and tech- nological management studies at Ottawa's Carleton Univer- sity, set up his own business called Horablower Midshipman Yacht Services. He approached boat-owners in marinas along Lake Ontario, in his maroon yachting blazer adorned with the gold Hornblower crest, persuading them to buy his services. But when the blazer came off, the shorts and sneakers went on, and the hard work began. Course helped Keith took a course at the University of Toronto in entre- preneurial motivation and one sees the results on his business cardt K. Douglas Crocker, entrepreneur. Although he goes by the name Keith and the "Douglas" won't even solicit a response, Keith has used the name, he explains, "because the K. Douglas sounds a little more, well, you know, entrepre- neurial." Keith got the idea of going into business for himself after working for two summers as a marina attendant. He discovered, after talking to owners of boats, that people who can afford yachts have little time to look after them. Keith often put in extra time for extra money doing odd jobs that the owners didn't have time for. As a result, Keith worked this year as his own boss, with sev- eral other students on call to help. By working from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day, Keith earned in one month as much as he earn- ed in five months last year. "I took a risk going into business on my he said. "If this hadn't worked, I might not have been able to go back to univer- sity this year." It worked so well, however, that eventually Keith would like to expand his business into a franchise arrangement so that every yacht club and marina in the area could be serviced. "Yachting is still the ultimate status Keith said, "but often new boaters don't know what they're getting into in terms of the amount of time and work a boat takes." These are Telltales!

AG7T Modern mood of today Fall 74 offers new dressup classics in sweaters Classic touch shown in boys' fashions for fall By HELEN HENNESSY NBA Women's Editor NEW YORK (NBA) The "dress up classic" is the key in describing boys' fashions for Fall 74. A clean, un- cluttered modern mood is combined with a touch of nostalgia, a new kind of elegance of detail. For example, a superb sweater line influenced by some of the '20s and '30s revival shows the new-looking ribbed waist and cuff bands. A totally modern version of the argyle sprouts as a super-size single motif in a sleeveless style. And this season's version of the plaid jacquard cardigan is boldly patterned in red, white and navy. The "award" car- digan with contrast color stripes on one sleeve is another great winner. The classic look includes a handsome Scandinavian jac- quard design. More patterns than ever and longer styles, High school dropout appreciates college ICMfM f00 In fovcft wNA four Mends NORWICH, Conn. (AP) "You can get so much more by waiting rather than enter- ing college right after high school says Juanita Tylenda, who waited 17 years after dropping out of high school to graduate from college. Mrs. Tylenda hated high school. In fact, she joked, "I was ready to quit when I fin- ished kindergarten. It's go, go, go from kindergarten on, with too much pressure." But after 10 years out of school, "I felt I needed more education and signed up for an introduction to psychology evening extension course at Eastern Connecticut State College. "I had forgotten how to study. It's hard to discipline your mind again after being out of school so long." The next semester she took two courses, sociology and fundamental mathematics. She flunked the second half of math. At 27, she said, she felt "very old" sitting with youths just out of high school. But Students complete science program FREDERICTON (CP) A group of 30 Canadian high- school students have com- pleted a four-week program intended to excite their interest in science and develop positive and critical approaches to scientific problems. The program at the Univer- sity of New Brunswick was under the direction of Dr. Michael Burtt, chairman of the biology department. The students were chosen for special aptitude in science and mathematics with emphasis on self-motivation and interest in ex- tracurricular activities. Dr. Burtt said the object was to create an interaction between the students and to give an insight into how science-related decisions are made. The program demonstrated how science can be used to im- prove the relationship between man and his environ- ment and made students aware of the social, economic and political factors involved in science, he said. Besides informal lectures and seminars, there was a heaw schedule of fieW work many students were even older and all were treated like like old women and men." She and her husband, Elton, live in an old home they hope to restore. They burned wood during the winter and began growing their own vegetables in a hothouse. They also bought goats and used the milk to make cottage cheese and yogurt. With a degree in hand, and a career in teaching or social work ahead, Mrs. Tylenda isn't through yet. "I found you really can do what you want if you plan and she said. "Now I can start working toward my master's."

Pet hawk frightening to some REGINA (CP) When Pat Stothers walks along city streets with his red-tailed hawk Lady, he frightens some people and arouses curiosity in others. Lady, who weighs three pounds and has a wing span of more than four feet, is "really gentle and says Pat, 14. Lady lives in a cage in the Stothers' garage at night and is brought out on a perch on the lawn during the day. In winter she lives in the house. The hawk eats dead chicks bought from poultry hatcheries in lots of several hundred for two cents each. She eats wild game whenever Pat can get it.
