Gas Price drop bottoming out look for slow Rise Lovs Angeles a the steady decline of retail gasoline prices since december is bottoming out and a moderate Rise is Likely Over the summer Industry analyst Dan Lundberg said sunday. The retail Price decline continued last week but Lundbergh a biweekly Survey of 15, my service stations showed the Overall Price of gasoline was 89.96 cents a gallon a drop of 0.11 cent since april 11.

Average pump Price for each Grade was 76 82 cents a gallon for leaded regular 82.72 cents for unleaded regular and 97 87 cents for Premium unleaded. Prices include All taxes and Are from self serve pumps. The retail Price plunge let Egan in december when the Overall Price was $1.2145 a gallon. Since then the Price has dropped 31.5 cents a the fall of prices i think has bottomed out and we re now entering a swoon which will very shortly begin to Rise a Lundberg said. Chevron Oil co. Chairman George m. Keller agreed sunday that Oil prices will begin to rebound this summer. Keller who appeared on the Abc news program a this week with David Brinkley a said he expected members of the organization of Petro Leum exporting countries to reach agreement on Oil prices in a few months. If that happens he said there would be a 75 percent Chance that Oil would increase from the current $12 to $14 a barrel to $15 per barrel by the end of the year and a 50 percent Chance it Woodd Rise to the $18 to $20 Range Oil must be $18 a barrel or More for the Domestic Oil Industry to remain viable Keller said.

Ackley All her life Diane Bostwick of Athens township has had a deep and abiding love for animals this fact led to her Choice of both her work and her Hobby. For the past seven years she has been employed As a veterinarians assistant at the Valley animal Hospital but works Only part time now so she can have time and Energy to devote to her Hobby the Breeding and showing of her dogs. Diane has had several different Breeds of dogs but has settled on Sheltie As her favorite the Type she wants to work with and show. She still has a Doberman which has been in the family for several years but feels one Doberman is enough at a time. She became acquainted with the Breed when a neighbor had an old Sheltie the family cared so much for that dog that they decided to get one of their own they got their first Sheltie in 1980, and began showing the dogs around january 1982. Since that time they have produced five champions the Bostwick have a Kennel License and their Kennel name is they usually have about ten adult dogs at a time. When they got their first Sheltie Diane did not plan to Start Breeding and showing she said. A basically it starts out with a love for animals a she said a then you find a certain Breed you really like you read the magazines for that Breed and begin to think you could raise puppies to the Standard then you re hooked. It s a Challenge to raise puppies that Are close to the standards. Then it kind of runs into showing them being proud of them wanting them to succeed in becoming champions. I enjoy the a anyone who has an american Kennel club registered dog can show it at a show Quot she said a most people Start out at what they Call a matches which Are like practice to teach you and the dog How to behave in a show ring. The judges will go Over the dog and feel of its Bone Structure and see How it gaits around the ring. If it exhibits proper movement look at Eye expression Carriage of ears and outline of the body. That a what they re judging on the Overall dog and How it meets the standards that the acc Calls for its Breed acc has standards for each Breed and you try to Breed dogs for puppies that will reach the Stan she noted that the size Standard for Sheltie is that they must be Between 13 and 16 inches tall from the shoulder Down if they Are either under or Over that size they Are considered As pets Only and Are not Eligy ble to appear in shows. Diane pointed out that even though it is relatively easy to get into showing dogs it is an expensive Hobby in her Case the occasional Sale of a Puppy or payment received for stud service by one of her Champion males help to defray the Cost of Competition but does not really support the Cost of the program see a Diane a Page 14.
