Mayor Roy. W. Eves, Street Commissioner William H. Buchholtz and Mrs. Marguerite Findlay, member of the Park Board, met at City Hall. Mayor.Eve's said the city will provide three large yule trees, one at ^mmanuel Episcopal Church, one in South Cumberland and the third in. the North' End. . The large trees, and . smaller ones needed . to . complete . the Christmas decorations,' will be furnished by Water Department crews from the Lake Gordon area. Lights'will be turned on at Emmanuel, site of old Fort Cumberland, on December 17 and will remain lighted until January 6, the Epiphany, which marks the coming of the Wise Men. No "attempt will be made, Mayor Ev§s.said. to make use of Riverside Park, due to construction work underway in the area. He added no attempt will be made to open and rehabilitate the park until after all flood control work is completed. ; . Completion of that task, he said, will, leave a smaller area than before, but still enough space "for an attractive park. SAVES TIME! SAVES MONEY!

U, 4. ^^^^^^^^^ ly PHYLLIS LONDON — (INS) - American :ourisfs abroad—a breed of goggle eyes, pf which I make up .two—are 1 hot likely to visit staid old parliament when they come to London. First off, it's a bit stuffy, even with 'andsome Anthony Eden in the Number One pew. Also it is difficult to get a "stranger's jahss" to the gallery. And, most mportant, they do not sell bone china or tweeds there. Where's the "uh if you can't spend money, eh Mabel? Bucking all these drawbacks, however, I have just attended one of the'pre-teatime sessions at the House of Commons and found it delightful. Compared with'the sessions of the U. S. .Senate I have sat (and occasionally dozed) through, this is the stuff that Broadway is made of. In fact, 1 if they brought the House of Commons to Broadway, I can see the reviews now: "A good humored performance by a company of. 525 competent men and 30 effectively quiet gentlewomen was previewed tonight. It was an earnest, forthright show, bogged down only slightly by the fact that the dialogue was in a foreign tongue referred to as pure English, making it incoherent in spots. "The costumes were generally conservative, although this reviewer did not dig the skimpy should- and those crazy curly wigs. The stars, veterans. Clement Atlee and Anthony Eden, were superb. "Even the cast enjoyed them, frequently bellowing 'Hyar, Hyar!" affectionately as they .performed. Altogether, a lively show." As you can see from this visualized viewpoint of''American critics, :he cultured parliamentary pro- Fot. OH.) IATTELLE A RELIGIOUS GIFT IS THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT!

Not necessarily habit. - .' " I followed the- -'white-wigged; Speaker of the House and,his rev-l erent coat-tail-bearer into an 'oak paneled room, where he sat on a genuine throne and 1 on a hard bench in the balcony. Before him was a large rectangular table which separated the-two parties in the house: : ori the Buckingham Palace side of the table were the government members, headed by Prime Minister Eden, and oh the side facing the Thames were the members of the opposition, led by the gnome-shaped man named Atlee, • They were sealed on tiers that rose severely like bleachers for a Gothic era baseball game. Following a period of prayer, the action began with a lively discussion on the shortage of water supplies in the village of Arley in the county of Warwick, and on the number of unemployed registered in the county of Warwick. It gradually progressed into the more ab sorbing problem of what to do about two members of Parliament who were elected while servin; lengthy prison' terms in Ireland. Whether it was water supplies or criminal Commons members, the House attitude was pleasant, not to say jovial. One argument did arise, when one member accused another member of attacking hi argument on some question or other. . But this temporary tension was quickly relieved. ''I am surprised, honorable opponent." said the member in a hurt voice, "that vou cpuld describe my gentle words as an attack . . ."". Following the session, I had spot of tea with two American congressmen, the Hon. Prince Preston of Georgia and the Hon. William Hull Jr., of Missouri, who. flew .to London at the invitation of Trans- World Airlines, in honor of its inaugural one-stop California-to-Europe service. Preston and Hull admitted they were most impressed by parliamentary procedure, the old Parliament way.
