SURVIVED WAR Meanwhile, back in Russia, Mr. Neufeld had survived the war and he had gone through university to become an ac- countant. He thought Mrs. Knit- tel was dead. But he never mar- ried. Then, in he made his first trip out of visit a brothel' in Vancouver. During the visit, various friends with Ukrainian background dropped in and, a thousand-lo-onc chance, one of Ihem had met I Mrs. Kniltcl in Waterloo. Her name was mentioned, and Mr. Neufeld was immediately bound for Waterloo. "It was just the she recalled Thursday. "He came in, and it wasn't a bit strange.

"I have seen the reports and the proposal is that area with unique characteristics will be preserved and not damaged in any way by activity there." W ASHING TON (AP) Treasury Secretary John B. Connally said Friday he expects a number of foreign trade bar- riers against United States' ex- ports to be removed within the next several months. Connally did not mention spe- cifically what barriers may be removed, but he told reporters he expects it to happen as a re- sult of unilateral or bilateral ne- gotiations. He said it has never been the U.S.'s objective to require a comprehensive elimination of all trade barriers in the upcom- ing negotiations over the inter- national monetary crisis. But, he said: "I think we can bring them (removal of bar- riers) about in a relatively short period of time." Connally said at a news con- ference the atmosphere for ne- gotiating a massive turnabout in the U.S. balance-of-payments deficit "is excellent.' GOING TO EUROPE The secretary, who soon will go to Europe for a conference with finance ministers of the major industrialized countries, said the U.S. is making prog- ress in breaking the deadlock on international monetary matters. "I think they recognize our problem and we recognize Connally said. "We want our balance of pay- ments improved. The only way they can be improved, in a sense, is to the detriment of oth- ers. Other nations have to give up something in order for us lo gain something." The United States has refused to life a 10-per-cent surcharge on imports until the balance-of- payments problem is improved through revaluations of other countries currencies, removal of trade barters and sharing of defence cosls. "It is tough for them to do that and we know Con- nally said. "But turnabout is fair play. We've got to run a surplus for a while. 'T think the atmosphere for negotiations with them is excel- lent." The U.S. balance-of-payments deficit is currently running at an annual rale in excess of S13 billion. American released By UAVK MclNTOSIF OTTAWA !CI'i Opposition Leader Robert Stanficki Unlay proposed a new ir.ethod for the government to put million inlo the .lands of Prairie farm- ers. He said at a news conference that his party is prepared to let the grain stabilization bill come lo a quick Commons vote prov- ided the legislation be enacted in two stages, The first stage would be im mediate enactment of the clauses dealing with payments to western farmers to compen- sate them for replacement of existing plais. Other parts of the bill would be proclaimed only after further study and possible amendment. This stage of enactment would be by Commons resolution after debate. The government has said it will abandon the entire bill if acre m e n t is not reached among party House leaders by Tuesday to pass it by the end of the week. UNDEB CONSIDERATION Mr. Stanfield said his pro- posal lias been put before a meeting of party House leaders and is being considered by the other three parties. The Opposition leader said his proposal would allow the gov- ernment make payments of million to Pniiric produc- ers immediately without aban- doning the a'si of the legisla- tion. Mr. Stanfield said Manpo "er Minister Otto Lang, responsible for the Canadian wheat board, has shown little disposition to helpful or conciliatory. He said he hopes Privy Coun- cil President Allan MacKaehcn would bring some common sense to government delibera- tions on the Conservative suggestion. Mr. MacEachen is govern- ment House leader. Mr. Stanfield said thai if the government is interested only in withdrawal of Iho entire bill failing all-party agreement by Tuesday, it is not sincere about helping western agriculture.

O. What fs the main advantage ot soft lenses, as compared lo hard lenses? A. The main advantage !s that at first you don't teel them as much as regular conlsc! becausa they are very soft and gel-like In composition. 0. Can soft lenses be worn all the time? A. It Is not advisable to wear them while sleeping, but tor many be worn djring all waking hours, just ag hard lenses can. However, it is not necessary to giaduaily Increase trie wearing time with soft lenses. 0. Can soft lenses be worn for sports? A. Present Indications are that soil lenses are much less likely to be dislodged from the eys than hard lenses, end thijs should be very good lenses for spoils. They definitely cannot be worn for swimming. Q. Can soft tenses be sterilized? A. Strictly speaking no. They are stored In a solution which contains an anil-bacterial eoent. Q. Can ordinary contact lens solutions be used wilh soft lenses? A. Definitely not! Patients are cautioned to use only those solutions supplied or recommended by the practitioner who fits the lenses. If a soft lens wearer were to use ordinary contact lens wetting, soaking, or cleaning solutions, the preservatives In these solutions would be- come absorbed by the lenses and cause severe Irritation to the eyes. Q, Can soft lenses be rinsed In ordinary tap water? A. No. They can be rinsed only In a saline solution thai has the same salt concentration ss the tears. Rinsing them with tap water would make them Incompatabls with the tear fluid and would cause severe problems. Q. Can eye make-up be worn with soft lenses? A. Any eye make-up which comes Into conlsct with the lenses can be absorbed by the lenses, making them umvearable. Therefore, any woman contemplating the wearing of soft lenses should be prepared to forego the use of heavy eye make-up, wilh the exception of make-up which Is applied to the outer surfaces of the lids only. Any cosmetics used should be applied after Insertion of the lenses, using caution to avoid contact with them. Q. Since people don't (eel soil lenses, can they be worn successfully by anyone who wants them? A. No. Since these lenses conform to the cornea, a person with any significant amount of coneal astigmatism will often not have clear vision. However, people ordinary near sightedness or far slghtedness will usually have reasonably good vision with soft lenses. 0. How much do soft lenses A. The cost to the practitioner Is considerably greater lhan the cost of hard lenses, and this In- crease In cost means an Increase In the cost lo the patient. It was believed originally that these lenses would require less time to fit than hard lenses and thus Ihe titling cost. Experience shows that in many more for fitting Is required. This Is particularly true as problems develop after several weeks or months of wear, h add-on to the tnin.ii higher cost, the solutions used are costly and run as much as five dollars per month, which is two or three times greater than the cost of ordinary contact lenses. Another facior aflecl- Ing the maintenance cost Is the extreme fragility of gel lenses as comparrd to regular con- tact lenses. 0. What develop slier few months of wear? A. II has been reporied that many patients find the unwoaMhlo after several months anc! request to be re-filled with hard lenses. Q. Why do Ihe lenses become unwearable? A. Aopnrently this Is rtun to absorption c! materials from eye's tear fluid, ahr.oipiion of cor, taminants from polluted air, and pcwhly cliantjrs in ths material ilsclf. The precise r< .ii.uns are not fully known. Q. H thtfi we many potential problems Involved In soft leni fitting, why do praclllloneri bother to fit them? A. The single ndvantaga nf soft Icnsps la the lact that Iho: do not require an adaption period. Because of this advantage, many patients can find will wuhr soft lenses who can't (or won't) wear hard lenses, even after they have been to'd of tha possible problems.
