He has been ui'g- ing Ihe government to launch a campaign with this slogan in North America. Plenty of people there, he says, get in superannua- tion, but it is not enough for an adequate standard of living.

Mayor Kobinson has put the ilca up lo the government and met a lukewarm response, but continues to advocate the proposition. Whether you can live like a king on in New Zealand depends on what you want out of life. Both incomes and cost of liv- ing arc generally lower in New Zealand than in Canada. But some items are more expensive. LIST COMPARISONS Here is a sample list in Cana- dian currency, taking about the middle range of prices in Auck- land, the largest city: Butler 34 cents a pound. Stenk 72 cents a pound. .Milk five cents a pint. Bread 15 cents a 28-ounce loaf. lemons, apples, tomatoes- most people grow their own. Men's suit Women's shoes Si3. Three-bedroom house in good suburb from about New Ford Cortina car Black and white TV set i Cinema admission 75 cents. Men's haircut 60 cents. Cigarettes 40 cents a pack of 20. An important factor in living standards is the cradle-to-gravo social security scheme which covers a proportion of doctors' fees, school dental costs, ma- ternity and publie hospital fees, pharmaceutical payments and similar health items. i ALL CAN T1ENT.F1T Such benefits are available lo all people after establishing reg- ular residence in New Zealand. The same applies to the child benefit of Canadian a week for every child regardless of the parents' income. But such benefits as universal superannuation for all irrespec- tive of income at Co, at Canadian a week, and similar grants for widows, orphans, in- valids find unemployed, nor- mally raiuire lenglhy qualifying residence. A major attraction is the ccju- sh'.c climate. The average tem- perature range in Auckland in January (summer) is ffl to 73 degrees fahrcnhcit. Tn July (winlcr) the average range is 40 lo 57 degrees. Tr.crc are on the average hours of bright sunshine annually, and rainfall of aboul inches. TMC climate makes air condi- tioning and central heating largely unnecessary. The aver- age family gets by with electric or gas heaters in winter. An attraction is Ihe slate edu- cation system. The lop stala secondary schools enjoy higher academic records lhan any pri- vate schools. A further attraction lies in the vast range of sports within the reach c! all. Golf, yachting, ten- nis, skiing, Ininling, fishing are prop'c's sports in N'cw Zealand, nut tic privilege of tha few. 2 in 1 Easter Gift Includes 4-oz.
