And being poor gives one certain freedoms- there is no expectation that one will do the correct thing, marry the right boy, be popular at dances. "There was no pressure on me to do more social things, so I wrote." STORIES REJECTED Storeis sent to publishers were returned in a stead} stream.

P) _ Constable Merle Caden- head and Detective Ed Caden- head are one of the few hus- band-and-wife police teams in North America. The couple share the youth 'detachment in the New West- minster police headquarters, in addition to performing other duties in the field of policing. Between them they have put in 30 years of police work, he with 20 and she with 10. Detec- tive Cadenhead has served in almost every branch of the city police department and is a for- mer RCMP constable. Police- woman Cadenhead joined tha force in 1963 after spending six years as a matron in the women's division at Oakalla prison farm in nearby Burnaby. They spend most of their working days together on cases involving rape, drugs, robbery, theft, runaways and related of- fences. They began working together a few months ago but already they find their new methods a success. "We try to relate to parents of young offenders on a famiiy- to-family basis. It seems to have a calming effect on the sometimes very awkward posi- tion of confronting them with I problems concerning their chil- says Constable Caden- 1 head. i "When an officer faces par- 1 ents alone, he is sometimes greeted with great hostility. They see the uniform and be- come very uptight. Our new method seems to make parents feel more comfortable." The Cadenheads are also available for counselling and are frequently found in class- rooms' giving talks on the im- portance of individuals abiding by the law. Policewoman Cadenhead re- Puppets fight pollution KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) What's three feet high, has frizzy hair, a green face and throws garbage in the park? A green-faced, frizzy-haired witch naturally. Sixty school children caught her act here recently as part of an anti-pollution puppet show. Four puppeteers of the Eco- logee Anti-Pollution Puppet Show have been touring the province under the auspices of the ministry of the environ- ment. Their message has been get- ting through. "Right on man. put it in the can." chorused, the 60 children leaving the grounds after the show. Many picked up litter on the way and dropped it in litter containers. "That's nothing said Kathy Flynn, 19. one of the pup- peteers, "so many times we see them organize a litter pick-up after our anti-pollution plays." Mark Hodgson, leader of the roupe, said part of the success of the show is that they try to involve the puppets with the children. The kids get to meet and talk tc a friendly tree, Mortimer T. Squirrell, a pollution concious frog, Harry the Hippie, and of course the witch. The witch, incidentally isn't such a bad gal, because she was just cleaning garbage oul of her cave and promised she wouldn't litter any more. Phil Newsome of Toronto, the supervisor and public relations chairman of the show, said two troupes will have given 400 per formances and travelled miles by the end of the season in September. All told, the puppets will hav taken the message to about 30, 000 children. Tony Orr, another of the pup- peteers, said he has found chil dren are often more intelligen about pollution than adults. eives the same privileges and alary as policemen and is sub- ect to the same disciplines.

She has had training 5n nurs- ing and self-defence and says a person has to be healthy, ad- venturesome and patient to be- come a good constable. Constable Cadenhead Is the only woman on the New West- minster force. "There is plenty of room on a police force for women to work alongside male officers, as long as they don't try to display that thej' are better than them." And how is the lone police- woman treated by her co-work- ers? "I'm just considered one of the she says.
