Association Operation Eyesore successful Britain gets facelift LONDON (CP) An ex- periment to improve the envi- ronment and cut unemploy- ment, Operation Eyesore, has sparked more than pro- jects throughout Britain and has cost nearly million in grants initial scheme closed last September after 18 months Rebekahs install officers Members of Faith Rebekah Lodge No. 93 recently installed officers for 1974. Pauline Hagerty was installed as noble grand with officers Peggy Kennon, vice- grand; Alice Willoughby, recording secretary; Ethel Giacomazzi, financial secretary; Mary L. Roberts, treasurer; Marie Munsen, warden; Ruth Myers, conductor; Marj Snowden, RSNG; Jessie Arnold, LSNG; Vi Torfason, RSVG; Mary Roberts, LSVG; Amy Gilmour, IG; Dorothy Bertsch, OG, Jo Snowden, chaplain; Diane Wilkie, RSS; and Geneva Knudslien, LSS. Donna Reed was presented her PNG jewel and was elected as representative to the Rebekah Assembly in Red Deer in March. DEEPEST DIVE The women's deep diving record is held by American Kitty Giesler who, in dove 325 feet using scuba equipment The popularity and success of the scheme exceeded all ex- pectations. Though it was described by Environment Minister Peter Walker as be- ing an "open chequebook" to enable local authorities to give a facelift to their areas, it was estimated that the total expenditure might be no more than million. What was unexpected was the ambitiousness of many schemes submitted for ap- proval and the fact that they were capable of being com- pleted within the time limit. In Liverpool, for example, 500 acres of land was cleared, grassed and landscaped as public open space at a cost of million, while in Newcastle upon Tyne in the north east a million major pro- gramme of stone cleaning and repair of public buildings was completed. UNEMPLOYMENT HIGH Operation Eyesore was launched at a time when un- employment in Britain was uncomfortably high. There is nothing new in the idea of in- creasing the program of pub- lic works such as roadbuild- ing and housing to reduce un- employment; what was new about Operation Eyesore was that it encouraged envi- ronmental improvements. Also, by varying the amount of the grants in different parts of Britain, greater incentive was given to improvements in areas that had suffered the worst industrial dereliction and those where unemploy- ment was greatest. In areas with the highest un- employment, government grants of 85 per cent of the cost of approved projects were available. In areas with less severe unemployment the grants were 75 per cent.

EVERYONE WELCOME' .schemes involving reclama- tion of derelict land, when 75 per cent of the cost of the work could be recovered from the government. No grants were offered for work in areas without an un- employment problem or a backlog of derelict land. In areas where environmental improvements were eligible for grant aid no limit was placed on the amount of the grant. TOWNS TRANSFORMED Of the projects that qualified for grants, most were concerned with the cleaning of public buildings or clearance and landscaping of derelict land. In many places the effect has been to trans- form whole towns and cities. One of the most ambitious achievements was the crea- tion of a country-park in the Tame Valley in northwest England, which had suffered the effects of 150 years of in- dustrial development and neg- lect. Between them the 11 local authorities have spent on restoration works. Operation Eyesore has helped restore the morale of neglected towns For ex- ample, a northern England town of some people, was once one of the most prosperous textile towns in the country. In recent years it suffered a decline that made it one of the poorest, with one of the highest death rates and one of the highest figures for juvenile delinquen- cy- Operation Eyesore provided the council with the opportun- ity to spruce itself up. Of the 120 schemes the town has tackled the most interesting is the creation of a linear wil- derness park using an old railway track LONDON (CP) Michael and Sylvia Goaman are stamp designers whose work has graced many thousands of letters in Britain and other Commonwealth countries. They work as a team, operating in a wooden studio they have built onto the back of their home in the London suburb of Twickenham The Goamans live with two teen-age daughters amid some of the most pleasant sur- roundings in the London area. Their house is in a district known as St. Margaret's, which lies between the bank of the Thames and three acres of wild woodland, park and lake that is completely private, shared only by two roads of similar large family houses. Sylvia, one of the five daughters of English novelist J B. Priestley, began work as a textile designer and still does the occasional commer- cial design, such as the soap pack she recently designed for a Swiss firm. Michael started out as a commercial artist and works now on banknotes and stamp designs. The Goamans have been designing stamps for about 20 years, though in the early days there was little call for special and commemorative issues. It is only during the last 10 years that the British post office has gradually built up its new issues and a definable British "school" has emerged. DESIGNS REMEMBERED In those early days the Goamans were among the leading names in British stamp design. They will be remembered for Michael's four-penny Concorde in 1967 and for Sylvia's Botanical Congress stamps in 1965. But in recent years most of their work is for Commonwealth countries. In their studio they will show you a whole album full of stamps, not all of which have been issued. For every issue of stamps published two or three sets are produced but not chosen. Three designers are usually called upon to enter provisional stamps in what is termed a competition, though all entering are paid a fee. The Goamans work side by side on a crowded bench but they never work together on the same project. Michael does banknote designs at the studio but to work on the note proper he has to go to the premises of the printers, Bradbury Wilkinson at High Wycombe, where he is assured of maximum security. Designing banknotes, he said, is more complicated even than designing stamps, as the design includes so many colors and lines working at the same time on a good design and one that will beat the forgers. "It's like playing a symphony he says. For a stamp design, the Goamans work on paper four times the size of a stamp, with a magnifying glass attacked as even that is fairly small m scale. Women's lib scores SASKATOON (CP) Women's liberation scored a point here when the police commission rescinded a motion prohibiting women cab drivers from working after 6 p.m. The police commission voted five years ago to allow women to work as cab drivers, but applied the restriction because of the danger of being robbed or attacked. The motion was reconsidered when a Saskatoon woman told a cab company she wanted to work in the evenings, and a letter was received by the commission from the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission. Teeth, nerve abnormalities linked to MS SASKATOON (CP) The connection between muscular dystrophy and abnormal teeth and nerves is the subject of a study being conducted at the University of Saskatchewan by Dr. Dennis Johnson. The research, funded by the Musclar Dystrophy Association of Canada, is based on the fact that nerve impulses control muscles through chemical secretions Dr. Johnson is studying the possibility that muscular dystrophy may occur when the control mechanism in the nerves is impaired.

I am also 45 and was in love with a girl in England 15 years ago. She was much younger than I, beautiful and willing, but I just couldn't bring myself to have sexual relations with her. I have kicked myself many times since. I left England and put the girl out of my mind. Five years later, I married a fine Canadian woman who has been a devoted wife and mother. But like that other man who wrote, I have never been able to get the English girl out of my system. I con- sidered handing my wife that column of yours, and confess- ing that I, too, was harboring a secret love that was never fulfilled. Is it possible that I might free myself of the recurring day (and night) dreams by telling my wife of my yearning? She's a marvelously understanding woman, and I do love her, Ann, but there's always that nagging feeling. Bittersweet Dear B.: The one thai got away seems like more of a prize than the one you caught but it ain't necessarily so. My advice is to say nothing. Sounds to me as if you lucked out. Dear Ann Landeri: You fre- quently print letters about people who are struggling with problems of overweight, excessive smoking and alcoholism. This letter will be a little different. I married a lovely gal whose family has a heavy history of diabetes three generations, to be exact My wife tends toward obesity and I insisted that she watch her weight and be checked regularly. Meanwhile, I am a health nut ilim, exercise regularly, and take pride in my physical condition. By now you've probably guessed it. I took a routine check-up last week and the tests show that I have diabetes. I am 20 pounds underweight and no one in our family has had the disease. I am more furious than concerned. Isn't this the rottenest, moat unfair thing you've ever heard of? Monroe, La. Dear M. L.: Similar things have happened in families where the non-smoker gets lung cancer and the nicotine addict goes scot-free. Such are the ironies of life, but odds are stacked heavily against it. Dear Ann Landers: I'm a 17- year-old girl who isn't writing to ask what to do about acne or how to get a certain guy to notice me. What I want to know is why people don't pay more attention to their elderly relatives in nursing homes. I work at this place weekends, and it's heartbreaking the way so many of these darling old peo- ple hope day after day that someone will come to see them and nobody shows up. Of course, some are forgetful and a little confused, but they are so lonesome. I have chatted for hours with these dear people and they are so grateful for my time and attention. I hope every person who has a relative or even knows of someone who is in a nursing home will clip this column as a reminder. Young and Car- ing Dear Caring: Hundreds, maybe thousands of old folks are going to have unexpected visitors soon because of you. Some people just need to be reminded. Thank you, dear.
