But it wasn't when the house was visited recently by The Herald, accompanied by city police officers. Renters'had walked out of the door the day previous and the damage was unbelievable, j The exterior of the house was was already a neglected condition (With the cost of housing rentals ever on the in- crease, the landlord is often considered the villain of the arrangement. As is shown in these photos, however, the tenant is not always blameless in carrying out his part of the lease. While the tenant is enjoying the protection of the Alberta Landlord and Tenant Act. lie also has an ob- ligation to maintain the premises in suitable living condition.)

It was also the anniversary of the day Jerry and I met. For the last three years Jerry and I have celebrated this date as a very important one in our lives. For months Jerry has been asking me what I want for a gift. I told him I want HIM to decide. In the meantime we have done plenty of window shopping. He knows my taste in luggage, jewelry and hostess gowns. This morning I became completely undone when a delivery man rang my doorbell and har.ded me a large box with air holes. I am now the proud mother of two Easter bunnies one is tinted powder blue, the other is a bluish pink. The card read, "From Jerry with love. Name the girl after you, and the boy after me." I don't care for rabbits. 1 live in an efficiency apartment and have no place for them. What's more 1 don't want to be bothered. At first I was disappointed, now 1 am- furious. This little "joke" is nothing but a cheap copout. Any advice?
