The will also mentioned an unspecified amount of property in Southern Rhodesia. A spokesman said all her re quests would be met and other members of her family would help, meet them if accessary. Lady Ai tor's relatively small estate was explained by the fact that her second husband.

An announcement by External A f f e I r S Minister Martin, leader of she Canadian delegation, is expected later this week on the Commonwealth scholarship plan. U One of the cqVference onj-mittees will likely be discussing problems raised in the reportthe difficulty of attracting applicants for awards offered by less-developed countries and the lack of graduates from certain of the less-developed countries eligible for awards. Another problem .is that of students who do not wish to return pom after they have completed their studies. The report says a number of studies have asked the . Canadian government to remain in Canada permamently.

The North Shore route along Quebec; Highway S to Montreal, while not the fastest course to the metropolis, is certainly the most picturesque.

Yon cat dance. You can eat there. And yoa caa pay there. It's called "Altitude 737," and the prices match the name, but It's worth the visit . . . The Place Dee Arts was virtually empty except for a few hundred beatniks for the screening of "They Never Wave Goodbye" which placed second at the recent Montreal Fftaa Festival.
