Under It a' civil servant pays In six and a half per cent of his salary '' with the govern ment matching the contribution snd when be retires, draws, on Zi years of service.

NOT SO SIMPLE .

And from the day the pension plan comes Into force, their contributions will be split, about one to five between It and their far more generous superannuation scheme. i: ' Canadian Student Missing In Ireland : - DUBLIN (CP) The search ia still going on -for missing student William Bourse, a, of Toronto,. who ia taking an arts degree' at Dublin's University College.
