Two delega- tions are scheduled to present their views on how the city should go abuuL paying fur LIIO secondary treatment facilities.

Several of the briefs indicate that the writers have had time to analyze the material made available by tho city on the subject. They are lengthy and detailed. Others simply regis- ter the writer's opposition to any increase in the domestic sewer service charge. A basic point in many of them is that the citizens should not be asked to subsidize indus- try in any way in paying sew- age charges. Members of the Advice, In- formation and Direction Centre board will appear before coun- cil to request that AID be in- cluded under the city's preven- tive social services.

Since Christmas city police have received several tele- phone calls that youngsters are still calling on homes carolling (or the Cup of Milk Fund. The Herald has no way of knowing whether these calls are genuine, nor is there any- thing The Herald can do to prove that donations will fact end up with the Cup of j Milk Fund. One point Herald editors would like to make: that, over the many years The Herald has supported the Cup of Milk Fund, through the generosity of its readers, a false repre- sentation is yet to lie heard of. If residents have any sus- picions whatsoever, it is sug- gested that carollers, or others, be thanked for their interest, and that contributions, if so de- sired, be sent or brought di- rectly to The Herald. The Herald will be only too happy to publish the names of the donors and the carollers. R. AKROYD LTD PLUMBING-HEATING and GASFITTING 2634 2Ist Ave. S.
