Speaking on an open-line pro- gram on radio station CKVL, Mr. Coyer said a million new jobs had been created for Cana- dians under ttie Trudcau gov- ernment. The country had the second-liighest standard of liv- ing in the world. "The New Democratic Parly is attacking us for what we are doing for specific he said.

QUEBEC NEEDS iMORB "Well Tm proud that we've Invested more in Quebec than any other province in Canada because Quebec needs more than any other province. The womjin replied "But It's badly invested." Mr. Goyer told her "well go vote in the West then." Mr. Goyer said he was no1 surprised that most of the ques lions on (he French-language program were about the econ omy and unemployment be- cause public opinion polls taken by the .party had revealed tha' these are the areas which mos' concern Canadians. Mr. Goyer is seeking re-elec tion in Montreal Dollard in the Oct. 30 federal election. Dear Dr. Lamb Our parents ved in the southern part of lexico, the Yucatan state. arly in the morning they pre- ared n big pot of coffee ist plain ground coffee. They ever knew about instand cof- c and lhat pot full of coffee kept near the fire for many long hours. They used invite everyone coming to he house to have a cup of cof- ec. The coffee was always slow- boiling. Our people never omplained about the caffeine a coffee. You may have noticed that i the packer's directions for ireparing coffee, they say never loil the coffee. We presume the esson lias something to do vith the flavor. What we would ike to know is by toiling the :offeo for a long time before Irinking it, say 15 minutes or can this eliminate the effects of caffeine and lake the coffee harmless? We must say, by the way, that we eldom drink black coffee. It s usually half or one-third cof- ee and the rest boiling milk.

Boiling ivon't nix caffeine Concern; .Dear Whom, TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K. Ryan )oint or iibove. You'ro correct .hou in assuming that the dir- ections not boil the coffee is to protect its flavor. Continu-1 ed boiling will not eliminate ,ho caffeine. Therefore the actual cotfec that you describ- ed contains caffeine and if it has been boiling for hours with- out added water to dilute it, it con contain a great deal oE caf- Eeine. The habit in Mexico of drink- ing coffee with milk (cafe au lail) as you described it of course dilutes the coffee a great deal. It decreases the caffeine content in a single cup to about one Iliird the amount obtained in a normal brew, as- suming that you used one third brewed coffee and two thirds boiling milk. The calfioles which impart I he flavor to cof- fee are usually harmless. De- caffeinated commercial coffee products then contain caffiole anil tannin and usually have no significant effect on the body, unlike caffeine. Caffeine stimulates the ner- vous sytem and the heart and increases the resting heart rate, as do all nerve stimu- lants. It lias the opposite effect of tranquilizers. In susceptible people it can cause irregulari- ties of tiie heart. Caffeine causes the stomach to increase the amoimt of acid pepsin juice it produces and may cause in- digestion, "burning of the sto- mach11 and it can rritale the bowel, particularly in indivi- duals who are susceptible to ir- ritable colon or nervous colon. Individuals who have trouble utilizing ordinary coffee usual- ly tolerate the decaffeinated products very well. The hardest rock Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Rhona Ballon, age If, of Ord, Neb- raska, for her" question: Which is (he hardest kind of ordinary rock? The hardest natural mineral is the diamond. But it is as scarce as hen's teeth, so we hardly can rate it as an ordi- nary rock. Nor can we count precious topaz or the corundum gem stones. These various jew- els are in classes eight, nine and leu on the mineral scale of hardness. The hardest of the ordinary everyday rocks is in class seven but ill some ways it is superior to the rare pre- cious gems. It was nice of the earth to add so much beauty to the hardest ordinary rock and also to make so much of it. Its common name is quartz. Chemically, quartz is a sili- cate mineral, winch means that it is a compound of the very plentiful elements, silicon and oxygen. Its tough molecules were packaged in the molten magmas and lavas of fiery vot- canos. The mixture cooled and froze to form Igneous rocks. Quartz may be mixed with other minerals in rocks such as granite and feldspar. Some- times a massive layer of solid milky while quartz hides sec- ret veins of gold'. Other com- mon quartz rocks are pink or green, blue or brown or almost black. Milky white quartz forms those smooth beach pebbles that look like ostrich eggs. A lot of common quartz rock has been by geol- ogical happenings such as heat, LIFE ON THE J-LAZY-S-By T. Lightning kills BELGRADE (AP) _ Onur Ahmet, 26, a Turkish driver, and a four-year-old boy were found dead in an automobile, south of this Yugoslav capital, presumably killed by lightning, police said Saturday. The mother of the child, Habiba As- lac, 22, and her brother were dazed by the thunderbolt. pressure and moving water. Some quartz lavas cooled so fast in the chilly air that they formed biack. volcanic glass called obsidian. Other quartz molecules had time to arrange themselves in clear glassy crys- tals, shaped in six-sided col- umns with six-sided pointed peaks. If traces of manganese were present, the crystals were iinted with rosy pink or violel amethyst. Other impurities tint- ed (hem smokey grey or brown Fine fibers of asbestos adder a shimmering glow to create cat's eyes and tiger's eyes. Some quartz beds were steeped for ages in seeping round water. Their molecules were washed .a way and deposit ed elsewhere in layers of semi-precious stones. Often they lined the fvckets of por- ous rocks with waxy chalce- dony. Its translucent color range from black througl moonbeam blues, grays or white. Various impurities changed other deposits to red yellow carnclians, apple green chryosprace or to onyx, stripei with ribbons of rich browns and white. The most handsome semi- precious quartz stones are speckled or striped agates. And the seeping quartz added moisture to cre- ate precious opals. Naturally ttie earth's hardest ordinai-y mineral is very useful. Sand for making glass and concrete is mostly quartz. Clear quartz crystal, or rock crystal, is used to make superior lenses, lab equipment and radio crystals. Our remote an- cestors found hard nodules of blue-black flint embedded in limestone.
