That's the amount the city social and community servia committee says will be spent i subsidizing 25 of the city'i 33 amery schools in In'1947, with the passage the Day Nursery Act In Ontario there were two day nursery BU pervisorB in the province, an one clerk. Today, Ontario has 16 distrii supervisors with a mall arm of clerical workers. Joan HiDnrst, the London su- pervisor of the Ontario depart ment of social and family serv ices, says nursery schools or here to stay. Mrs. HUhorst says changin values in society, such as th acceptance of unwed mothers raising their children, are re- sponsible for the increasing de- mand. Standards have increased through the years and today' nursery schools are not glorified baby-sitting services, she says A child can learn to read before age five and other learning fa- cilities are made available. Nursery schools provide, she says, "an environment tha holds all (lie elements for over ill growtti." Group wants end to population boon LONDON, Out. (CP) If the Canadians of the future are to enjoy a continued high standarc of living, many must remain un- born, says the local president of Zero Population Growth. Pam Evans, president of the 50-member London chapter ol ZPG and a mother of IWD, says action is needed now to stop the population boom. Instead of government baby bonuses and income tax deduc- tions which increase with the number of dependents, taxpay- ers should be penalized for hav- ing large families, the govern- ment should subsidize steriliza- tion and set up a department of population and environmental control which, among other duties, would hand out contra- ceptives. "It costs the government to to educate one person, plus they have to build more schools, hospitals, roads and so on as the population in- Mrs. Evans said hi an interview. Would it Dot be less expensive and more beneficial for Canada If the government paid for anyone volunteering to be sterilized, she asks.

Furthermore, Mr. Armour said I had murdered his language, and would I please get it right. So here it is: "Shake and shake the catsup bottle. None will come and then a lot'll." Mr. Armour made me feel better by saying other promi- nent people had made the same mistake Hugh Downs and Ddwin Newman for example. So, my humble apologies to Richard Armour. It helps to know I'm in good company. Dear Ann Landers: Why do people chase after fire trucks? wonder if they realize that their morbid curiosity can cost ives. It happened exactly that way last Friday night. The fire alarm went off about midnight. My husband Is a rolunteer fireman and he went immediately to do his duty. It was a night of tragedy. A small boy lost his life needlessly, say needlessly because the morbidly curious who followed he fire trucks created such a traffic Jain it wu Impossible or the firemen to refill their tanks with water. The tankers vcre on hand, but the spectators' cars had them blocked. t took 15 minutes to clear the road, hi those 15 minutes the house was engulfed in flames and the little boy was burned o death. Why anyone would want to see destruction and grief Is I >cyond me. Maybe if 1 understood it I wouldn't be so bitter. Can you explain it? V.F.'s Wife Dear Wife: I can explain it in a word. Excitement. Most I people's lives arc uneventful and dull. A fin Is some- ilng (o talk about. It's an event. Sad, but true, with all the renders of the world, some people chase fire trucks for fun. .'s also illegal, I might add. A driver can be arrested for fol- wing an emergency vehicle and he deserves to have the took thrown at him. A TRADITION IN LETHBRIDGE Featuring LIBBY'S Products CREAM CORN KERNEL CORN PEAS.
