He was told by the board that his pro- posed plan had only to comply with existing RDEK bylaws until the zoning bylaw is en- acted and the board saw no reason for suspending approval if the zoning bylaw is not yet enacted.

Everything Chances are it won't be next Fsb. 15 when Britain abandons the money system it has 101- lowed for centuries and takes on decimal coinage. The pound no longer will be divided into 20 shillings of 12 pence each. Instead, it will con- sist of 100 new pence. By then everyone with 10 fingers is sup- posed to find it easier to counl by tens instead of the present system of threes, sixes, twelves and twenties. Workers who must make change, like bank and postal clerks, worry how they are going to convert the uncon- verted public to the new sys- tem. Public opinion polls show more than half Uie British peo- ple don't like decimalization and more than a third don't under- stand it. Bank, post office and other workers are sure to face delays, mistakes and added strain in their everyday dealings. They are already pressing for more in order to cope with "worry money." Claims arc in from unions representing white collar workers. Even the tax collectors have put in a claim for ?120 to cover extra paper work. SEEK GUIDANCE Nervous employers are asking or government guidance, fear- ing that once one claim is met it vill open the gates so that shop :lerks, bus conductors and just about everyone else who han- !les money will put in his bid. The Daily Mirror calls this ampaign '.the cheekiest try-on ince Australian dockers de- landed 'temptation money' for unloading crates of scotch." "Let's cut out the window, "Bank workers, taxmen and post office clerks are all sup- posed to be good at figures. That's what they're paid for. Now they are claiming extra pay for continuing to be good at figures." The inconvenience and strain for decimalization, The Mirror said, will be shared by every- o n e, housewives, pensioners, shopkeepers.
