He took time out to kid old- line parties by saying "if the Social Credit party is going down the wrong road, where are the other parties going? They've been on the wrong road for a long time." The humor of the eve- ning was continued by Mr. Strom who said he was glad Mr. Landeryou had once been a Member of Parliament (for Calgary east in 1935-40) be- cause Ottawa is a "good train- ing ground for provincial rep- resentatives."

LESCENLSLIPPLI THE GOOD THAT MEN LIVES BEYOND THEM E E D E L I IV E donation of an organ, such as a kidney an eye is a prime example of man doing continuing good. Actually it is the last chance for someone to do something for his fellow man. Organ donation knows no economic barriers. It is the great common denominator. Whether n man be prince or pauper he can make the- same wonderful gift, and in doing so a part of him endures. Al this time of year when the spirit of giving is so much in our mtnds, consider making out a donor card or adding it to your will. The more donors the greater the opportunity for matching ideal donors and thus more chance for success.
