I can get along fairly well for two days; it seems then I just must have something. I am trying so hard not to drink. Dear Reader Yes, there is.

Even heavy drinkers can be helped if they really want to U you are drinking a lesser amount it is possible that you are using it as an emotional crutch. In selected cases cer- tain tranquflizer drugs have proved to be useful and help people to shake the alcohol ha- bit. Some people drink because they are depressed and they need still other medicines.

The five snipe species o! the bird world belong to marshy meadows and moist woods. They are plump, little ground birds with stubby tails arat ra- ther short legs. All of them wear very handsome plumage speckled and freckled with raffs and tans, soft and rusty arowns and rich chestnut. Ttiar identifying field marks include a startling style of flight am a rather ridiculous looking bill Most ground birds must be wary characters but our common Wilson snipe is mon so than most. His plump is said to be tasty and for age human hunters have snipei him down with guns. At the sound of footsteps he swoops from hiding with a jerky, zig zag flight and loud whirring of his stiff-feathered wings. When undisturbed he spends most of his day grubbing for food. He samples seeds and wa terweeds. But his favorite menu is insects and he uses his re- markable, slim, straight bill ti pro for them in the m o i s earth.

The snipe builds a nest on the ground, a sh'ght depression lined with grasses. If he lives in a marshy meadow, the nes site is slightly elevated, often in a clump of sedges. The cour ing season buzzes with whirr ing, whistling excitement. Bu the snipe's serenade is by the stiff vibrating feathers of his wings and tail. It is high pitched hum that pulses to and fro. Human ears ar baffled and find it hard to trac the eerie sound to its source The snipe also has a hars raspy voice. To scare intrud ers from Ms frisky youngsters be repeats a raucous, seoldin cry that sounds like "whea wheat" or "Sca-te-ep." Flocks of snipes return 1 tha spring and then scatter 1 nest through the norther' states and Canada. In the fa] the families regroup and th flocks fly south. Many spen the winter in the southern states. Others fly across to Be muda or on down to Brazil Colombia. Oiie or more of the five snip species nest in most countries that provide suitable areas moist earth. They are cousin of the wary woodcock who pr fers to live in dry woods an meadows.

In an article in The Globe an Mail, Mr. Maekasey says Pro Douglas Muir misunderstoot some of the white paper's.pro losals. Prof. Muir, who teaches bus ness administration and con merce at the University of Al >erta, criticized the white paper n an article written for the March issue of Canadian Per sonnel and Industrial.

Mr. Maekasey said the pro- josed plan does not move away Torn insurance in the direction of welfare because "benefits are still related to previous earnings and not to need as with welfare and there is no means test."
