No Children under 16 allowed Herald Family Nurse uses skills on sick animals Rental situation poor according to survey OTTAWA The apartment rental situation is getting tighter a Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp. report suggests. The average apartment vacancy rate for 22 metropolitan areas in mid June was 2.4 per says a CMHC survey. This is lower than the mid -1973 average of 3.3 per cent. The survey is carried out every six months. While the mid June figure was higher than the 2.1 per cent average last CMHC said the two surveys cannot be compared because of seasonal factors. Year end rates are usually it said. The outlook does not appear bright as a CMHC report on May building activity in- dicated a decline in construc- tion of new apartments. Federal housing experts have said a vacancy rate of three to four per cent general- ly yields fair rents and is attractive enough for builders to put up more apartment buildings. But with vacancy rates below that apartment owners could safely push up they say. Vancouver has a vacancy rate of 0.3 per lowest in the while Ont.. has the highest rate 9.8 per cent. St. Regina. Saskatoon and Thunder Ont.. all report vacancy rates below two per Edmonton and Kitchener and St. Catharines had rates above five per cent. There were apartments under construc- tion in down 2.5 per cent from the total of It also was down from in April this year. New apartment starts in May were a 3.1 per cent decline from for the same month last year. CMHC has not yet com- pleted its June report on hous- ing starts.

In a top Soviet a reader recently complained to Vyacheslav the Soviet Union's foremost fashion about the lack of attractive clothes. can't we get 'fashion- able' she asked. Part of the problem is that at produced what the designers created. An official of the Soviet ministry of light industry recently criticized designers of the House of the haute couture of the Soviet fashion and other designers for creating clothes which could not be duplicated by clothing factories. on the other complained in an interview two years ago that send designs to the factories and sometimes don't recognize them as our own when the ar- ticles PUBLIC BINGO _ 16 GAMES BLACKOUT Until LETHBRIDGEELKS LODGE ROOM EVERY THURS.-8p.m But the designers and the ministry of light industry claim they're on the road to solving the problem. fashion houses must work directly with clothing factories in their design of into acoount the peculiarities of mass technological op- availability of cloth and said G.

But even with the improve- designers say it will take a year from the time fashions are shown in collec- tions to the day they're put in stores. Few attractive things are currently in the shops. A check of several clothing stores and the clothing sec- tions of large department stores revealed a limited selection of dresses and pant- most of which appeared to be designed for middle-aged women. At a few bright plaid jumpers were found among a mass of formless dresses and pantsuits. Cotton print house dresses were sell- ing for 50 rubles The jumpers sold for 25 rubles unknown in the Soviet Union a few years are now a regular feature in apparently demonstrating that many Russians are refusing to pay high prices for some which then are marked down.

Clothes are more colorful and styles more they report. Many young women have rejected the dyed hair and heavy makeup of their elder sisters and mothers and opted for long hair and the natural look.

Woman judges boxing NEW YORK Carol B. a stockbroker and mother of is now the first woman in New York state to earn a licence to judge boxing matches. Mrs. Polis had been a box- ing judge in Philadelphia for a year and a half and says she will retain her Pennsylvania licence. She was introduced to the vocation by her a fight referee in Farm is hostel for wildlife PRINCE B.C. Dunja Risse Sawiski is a registered nurse but you won't find any of her patients in a normal hospital. On her 83-acre farm near this central British Columbia she cares for three convalescing bald eagles. They were brought to Mrs. Sawiski by conservation officers who know that if anyone can nurse the magnificent birds back to health she can. Although she has no formal training in zoology or she is respected for her ability to heal sick and in- jured birds and animals by using poultices and usually homemade. She got most of her knowledge through reading but says that being a registered nurse does help. Nursing birds of prey has its problems and the biggest one is what to feed them. Her bald eagles eat fish caught by Mrs. Sawiski in a fish trap set up in a creek on her catches dolly squawfish and trout under permit from the fish and wildlife branch. But the fishing isn't as good as it used to be in the Fraser River. used to be so many fish in the water but now there's three pulp mills and an oil refinery on the opposite bank and the sturgeon are she says. The fish and wildlife branch also helps supply some of the food. Last winter the eagles ate well when there was a surplus of moose meat because so many moose were hit by cars and trains. Some people would think nursing a bald eagle is akin to playing nursemaid to a but Mrs. Sawiski says the eagle's long razor sharp talons and bill don't frighten her. are gentle One of her gentle residents is who came to the farm more than four years ago unable to hunt with one eye blind from a tumor.

Mrs. Sawiski doesn't like to keep birds penned up but says it is necessary to keep Queen away from the others because the two females competing for the male. don't like cages. They're very Her interest in mammals began when she arrived in Prince George from Europe and she has treated bears and other animals. Her interest in birds came about when she visited an area near west of with her naturalist husband where conservation officers were banding geese. Eleven Canada geese lay in a stunned or injured after being caught in a net. She was told there was no hope for them. After convincing the officials she could do something for the she was allowed to try some of her skills on them and was issued a permit from federal wildlife of- ficials allowing her to keep the geese. She diagnosed the ailing birds' problems as a form of shock and by using an electric had the geese walking around within two weeks. Since she acquired those first geese in the Sawiski farm has been a refuge for whistler swans and many varieties of including the giant Canada goose. Some of the animals are brought by workers from the nearby some by conservation officers and many by people who find sick animals and have heard of Mrs. Sawiski. When some of the animals become so domesticated they can no longer fend for themselves and become too they are sent to game zoos or parks. Dunja Sawiski with injured bald Poorboy. Ann Landers Dear Three years ago I became pregnant. My boyfriend was only 18 and still in high school. Don had no no diploma and no job. He told me he really didn't want to get married and I couldn't blame him. But my parents hounded him unmer- cifully and we were married one month before our baby was born. This marriage is a night- mare. Don has been off work more than on. I have to take the child and go to my parents' house to get a decent meal. Don treats me rotten and ignores his son. I am worried about the child. He is either in a depressed mood or so wild I can't handle him. My folks don't believe in divorce. What should I Sue Dear You made the mistake of letting your folks push you into this miserable marriage. Don't make another mistake by allowing them to keep you locked into it. Your child needs counsell- ing and you need a lawyer. If you don't do something about unwinding from this tragic mess you'll need a doc- tor for your migraines or whatever form the anxiety takes. Dear Ann I believe the.most valuable service you have performed in all the years you've been writing is the information you have given our youth on the symp- toms and hazards of VD. I am the principal of a school in North Carolina. Your column has appeared in our paper for 17 and your column was the first in which they ever printed anything about VD. I remember the stir it caus- ed at a PTA meeting back in 1956. People actually chose up sides. The enlightened parents in our school applauded you. They said they discussed your column with their children and it helped put things in the proper perspective. The un- enlightened parents thought it was outrageous that such topics as sex and VD should appear in a family newspaper. A committee went to see the editor. You won hands down. I say God bless and the editor. You've been an enor- mous influence for good in our community. You have given our children information that has molded their lives a job should have but weren't equipped to do. The kids appreciate even if some of their parents don't. So do the guidance councellors and prin- cipals. God bless Ann. Long may you reign. A Real Friend. Dear Thank you.
