It must have been late 1913 that we had a trip east to Glencoc, Ont. Few thoughts o the usual festivities remain but for the first time I saw apples on trees. Frozen they were to be sure but really something to ar. Alberta youngster. Then, too, my aunt lovingly scooped out a great golden pumpkin to make a jack-o-lan-tern before my admiring eyes.

Our Christmas dinner was a family affair with cake and other features all from Can- ada. By early June of 1946 I was on my way home while my wife followed in -Septcmbei That year was a civilian cele- bration among our loved ones, I _ Probably the most memor- able Christmas since was 19V when my younger son was bom in the Mayerthorpe Hospital. Celebrating as he does Christ- mas has become a two-day af- fair. Who could ever forget an occasion such as that? V W SEASON DRAWS TO A CLOSE The removal of navigational markers tho end of another shipping season. Canadian Coast Guard vessel Griffon was in Toronto to remove buoys. The Griffon stands by as some of her crew, working landing barges, hock cable onto the buoys which are then lifted onto the vessel with the ship's crane. Operating out of Prescott, Ont., the Griffon has removed buoys at Kingston, and Burling- ton before the Toronto project. Built in Lauzon, Que., the ship was commissioned early this year. Embarrassed MPs need new system By DAVE McINTOSII OTTAWA (CP) Parliament may have to adopt the new Brit- ish system if it ever wants to rid itself of the embarrassment of approving its own pay in- creases. The independent committee on parliamentary salaries and expenses, whose report was made public recently, declined :o accept the chief task given it: To recommend a method of setting MPs' salaries regularly in future. The committee instead recom- mended that another committee lave a look at this problem in he next Parliament. This comes close to the sys- .em recently adopted at W.est- ininsler: Ah independent com- mission to review MPs' salaries :n each is, every four years or make recommendations which would receive almost automatic approval. Can spring be far away? The supply department has just placed a order with Heather Plastics Ltd., Rexdale, Ont., for tent pins. State Secretary Gerard Pelle- tier has informed the Commons through a question by Louis Co- meau, Conservative MP for South Western Nova, that the Company of Young Canadians now has" a staff of 46, exactly half the number of volunteers working in the field. The C o m p a n y 's director makes a year and he has six aides making to The Company has hired only 15 consultants this year, how- ever, compared with 35 last year. Altogether, it has spent about million since its founding in 1966 by former prime minister Lester Pearson. Prime Minister Trudeau last tried out his version of Chair- man Mao's "let a thousand flowers bloom" when Communi- cations Minister Eric Kierans and the former defence minis- ter, Leo Cadicux, argued pub- licly about staying in or with- drawing from NATO. Mr. Kier- ans advocated the latter. But there are indications Mr. Trudeau will allow a wide-rang- ing public discussion by his ministers on energy policy vis- a-vis the United States. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp has tcltl the Commons: "The government is very con- cerned that it should arrive at a decision that is in the interests of all the people and that all points of view should be consi- dered. "I think that some difference in vi.5w among ministers before the government has made up its mind is really quite useful." Two recent ministerial replies to Commons questions: Asked whether a full go-ahead had been given to the destroyer construction program. Treasury Board President C. M. Drury said: "Ths treasury board has In the past authorized such things as arc necessary to be author- ized to enable the destroyers to be constructed." Manpower Minister Otto Lang in reply to Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield: The explanation for the greater number of unemployed m the age group to which refer- ence has been made is that in some measure it is due to the unusually small decline in the size of the group seeking em- ployment rather than in the amount of employment availa- ble." Hansard notes this comment: "Some honorable members: oh, oh."
