Matchnig accessories include a braid- ed cotton rope-belt and white gaircho hat. The outfit was part of a collection unveiled in Montreal. charter flight jusiness is a multi-million dol- ar proposition in Canada. The reason for the popularity of charter flights, of course, is their Jaw cost' per holiday- maker. Thousands and thousands of Canadian residents travel to every part of the globe every year on charter flights. It is estimated that in 1969, a record 1.500 charters were flown from Canada, most of them across he Atlantic. How does one get on a char- ter flight? Well, frequently one joins a "club" which might be a term covering anything from a special interest or hobby club to a service organization. The favorite question of anyone going overseas for a holiday is "where can I find a charter Generally, when people put out. hundreds and hundreds of dollars they would like to know what their rights and obliga- tions are in the event that the service or product does not work out or in the event that they might have a complaint to make with the hope of obtain- ing some redress. Are there any laws or officials to give a measure of assurance and or protection to people signing on for charter flights? Professor W. A. W. Neilson, professor of law at York Uni- versity, has some strong views on this subject and feels thai federal government authorities have a duty to extend protec tion to Canadian travellers cov ering out of country charter Tights. After all, it is a corronoi rule that the entire fare mus paid considerably in ad ance, and more often than ot, the organization taking th< unds is largely unknown to the traveller. Some consumers have iscovered to their sorrow tha he mere existence of an organ ization over a length of tiro, does not always guarantee thei ability to carry out the charte light both ways! The federal government ha mrported to act here and ther mt whether they have actet strongly enough in the interest of consumers is another ques tion. The Air Transport Committee of the Canadian Transport Com mission require that all fares laid for a charter flight be pu h a trust account in a Cana dian bank or trust company with half of the amount bein released to the airline when th out-bound segment of the flisl is flown out, the remainde being released to the carrie when the group returns. How ever, there must be a namec airline involved and arrang ments must be finalized to tl extent of actual arrangemen for a charter flight. This protection would n cover the type of situation dis covered in Toronto when flight organizer disappearec with more than belon ing to hundreds of would-] travellers who paid over each for charter flights tha would have taken them home Italy for Christmas. The frv fully booked flights had nev been arranged and it is que tionable if those who paid get on the charter flights will ever recover any of their money. Nor does this regulation cover a frequent situation where charter agents soh'cit fares from Canadian residents and bus them across the border to the United States to an air- port there. These situations alone illustrate the limits of federal concern and regulations. is obviously not enough, as odaimed by the Commission ecently to "rely mainly on self- olicing by the airlines and .ravel agents." As a follow-up to Professor eilsou's investigation and re- ort to the Consumers' Associa- on of Canada, the organization rould like to get some more in- rmation to fight this problem. you can help, would you ease send your answers to any or all of the following ques- ons. There is no need to sign our name. 1 Are there clubs or organiza- ons in your area sponsoring barter flights? If so, how did learn of then- existence? Did you find it relatively asy to shop for the best char- er flight buy? How did you go bout it? Did you pay your fare in dvance of take-off? How far in advance was the last payment made? e What sort of assurance did you have of a binding contract between the "club" and the charter airline involved? Did you clearly understand the following: the total fare if the flight was less than fully- booked? was food' included? were beverages included? Did you understand the fares to be regulated and con- trolled? Were you given an op- portunity to purchase "no- show" insurance? If so, at what price? Do you have any basic com- plaint about the availability and-or operations of charter flight operations hi Canada? If so, please provide brief details.

NEW YORK (Reuter) -i Greenwich Village demi- hippies and Fifth Avenue ma- trons, girded with cartridge belts and with gas masks slung over their shoulders, have armed themselves for the latest fashion fad. Several stores in New York and other major American cit- ies have taken on the look of quartermaster's' supply depots as retailers rush to cash in on the new "army chic." The look began with cartridge belts, similar to those worn by gunmen in Western movies, filled with imitation bullets and worn either slung across the chest or hung on the hips. Then came Second World War khaki ammunition belts, with snap-on pockets, designed to hold bullet clips. Not everyone thinks the fad is cute. The New York Times, in a rare fashion editorial, recently attacked H. The strongly- worded comment, entitled "Let them eat suggested a number of unusual fashion ideas, including the use of a replica atomic warhead to make an amusing bat. It continued: "None of these fashion fanta- sies is more oiiensive than the new fad of the cartridge apparently designed to give 'rel- evance' to women's stylishness, "When the cartridge belt was first worn by armed student militants during a campus re- volt, the public was justifiably shocked. Both by the symbols of violence and by the depth of fear and fmstration reflected in the display. "The decadent chic, in turn, mirrors society's pathological lack of comprehension and com- passion. It debases tastes and life-styles as it transforms the implements of extremist revolu- tionaries into toys for the rich." YWCA news Ann Landers The YWCA annual meeting to be held at Ericksen's Restaur- ant on Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. Feat- ured speaker will be Mrs. Rob- ert Tillman, World Council member of the YWCA of Can- ada. Teen Clubs (girls 13-16) Agnes Davidson, Monday, 7-9 p.m., Westminster, Wednesday, DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wouldn't believe this if it hadn't happened to me. The other evening my husband and I took our two young sons .out to dinner. We were enjoying our- selves when suddenly a loud-mouth walked1 over to our table and said, "My wife and I have a bet. I say those two boys are adopted. My wife says they aren't." My husband and I were stunned. The man continued, "I'm sure I win ie bet because you two are both dark complectioned and black- haired and the kids are fair." I was so taken by surprise I didn't know what to say. I replied, "The boys are not adopted. They resemble my side of the family. I am the only brunette." When the man left, the boys began to ask questions. My husband was furious. He said I should have told the slob it was none of his business. Although my husband is probably right, I felt that had I refused to answer his question the boys might have got the impression that perhaps they WERE adopted. Please give us your opinion. DEAR H.T.: Sorry, I'm with your husband. Strangers vbo ask intimate questions don't deserve a civil reply. After the man left you could then have pointed out to the boys what a rude question it was and explained that it is not unusual for two dark parents to have light complexioned, blond chil- dren, and vice versa. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently, a dearly loved, much admired and respected man died. He was an. ideal husband and father, a community leader, financially successful and the sort of person everyone looked up to. After his death his wife and adult children went through Ms personal belongings together. What they found was shattering and heartbreak- ing. They discovered a collection of pornographic magazines and books, stacks of obscene pictures and a suitcase filled with stag movies. The family is crushed. They now feel his life w a s a sham that he was a hypocrite. No one can understand it. How could a person have kept his true character so com- pletely hidden from those who were so close to him? A prurient interest in sex is as unlike this man as night is from day. Please explain. in Connecticut DEAR STUNNED: It is not unusual for a person to have a private, kooky, compartment in his life ranging from the slightly offbeat to the wildly bizarre. This needn't mean the person was evil or sinister. It merely means that in this particular area he had strudel in his noodle. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm 13. Mother says I'm too young to date. She also says I'm too young to drive, and too young to be out after curfew. The law says, I'm also too young to drink, too young to smoke and too young to work. What can a girl my age DEAR BORED: You can study hard and accom- plish something in school. You can make worthwhile friends and develop interests that will broaden your scope and con- tribute something to others. You can help your mother around the house and take some of the burden off her shoulders. And you can be thankful that you have a mother who won't let you step all over her and do as you please.
