These will be redeemed for cash and contributed to this campaign sponsored by the United Nations. Here is a direct way for us at Individuals to help tbt Mysore project In India. This program is more than the handing out of rations. It it a co-operative program of self help for U countries of Southeast Asia: a training centre in food science, in par-vticular the techniques of processing and preserving food. What are we asked to give up? Another lawn chair, a new pot of bath towel. But for the desperate people of Southeast Asia living at subsistence level tt will mean a . feeling of well-being that results , from eating well and the Joy of watching small bodice grow in good health.

The city was Jo finance Its part of the pro ject by an annual one mill Increase in the tax rate. Subsequently we were informed that the program of remov ing wires had been placed in abeyance for lack of funds. One Feb. 15, MM, we read in the papers that the City Council has approved in principle a five year spending pro gram that" will cost tS1.20t,ttt. In reviewing the list of civic undertakings It la noted that the Hydro Electric Commis sion It to spend tT.50t.eot for the-extension of their plant and equipment Under - the heading Traffic Engineering It 4s stated that $2M.0M is being allocated for underground wir ing of traffic lights in junction with . pavement re construction.
