The only concession he makes to his 87 years is to sit on a stool as he leads the orchestra through rehearsals. "Touch of arthritis, y'know. Very annoying."

He still plays the organ every day in his Toronto apartment and often sings to his wife, Lily, whom he married 62 years ago. After his marriage, Walter had an urge to become a pro- fessional musician, but he re- members "in those days you had to be extremely lucky to earn a week as a musician. I'd also become interested in real estate by that time ar.d I stayed with it for the rest of my working life." During the First World War, Mr. Ottaway enlisted as a trumpeter in the band of the 134th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. He served as a machine-gunner in France, where he was gassed in a Ger- man attack. In 1917, his band had the honor of being the first to play in Westminster Abbey. The occasion was the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to commemorate the 50th anni- versary of the Confederation of Canada. When Mr. Ottaway formed his own orchestra in 1933, it was "just a bunch of us getting together to have some he said. In a few years, their ranks had swelled to more than 50, and the orchestra was featured in a number of chanty concerts during the Second World War. At present, the Ottaway or- chestra has 35 members, ranging in age from a 16-year- old flautist to their leader who believes he is survivor of the original octet of 1933.

Open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m Phone 327-2044 Retired oilman to keep busy TORONTO (CP) Bill Twaits has all but severed his formal connection with Imperial Oil Ltd., but he has no intention of slowing down. After 41 years with the company, the last four as chairman and chief executive officer, he has retired with more than a year to go before the mandatory age of 65. He won't even stay on as a director because "I can't think of anything worse than having a former chief executive looking over the heads of the people running the company." But William Osborn Twaits isn't changing his forthright opinions on controversial subjects that made him probably- Canada's main spokesman for the oil industry. His problem in retirement is not what to do but what not to do. For the time being he is moving into a Bay Street office to set up shop as a business consultant. He is also involved with the British-North American Committee, a group that researches economic issues affecting Britain. Canada and the United States. Recently he was elected a director of Abitibi Paper Co. Ltd. and he remains a director and vice-presjdent of the Royal Bank of Canada. Later this year he goes to a trade conference in Moscow sponsored by the Soviet government and the Stanford Research Institute. And there is a world energy conference in Detroit in September. "I'm not leaving Imperial Oil because I'm mad at Mr. Twaits said in an interview. "I'm not mad at governments or anyone else." But. given time to warm up. he touches on some of the issues that have annoyed him. Like government which is injecting itself more and more into the oil industry. "The economy today is a lot more complex than just cutting down a tree to make a board. "Canadians are living with a political system that does not think 10 years ahead. It's a 19th-century system Oiat is dealing with the 20th-century market ''Sometimes I think Canadians don't know where their affluence came from. It comes from a venturesome spirit and the growth in world trade AVALANCHE BURIES 18 FOIX.
