OCTOBER ti, 19S7 Pag ) l5:3Ni(iw Biises For OTC Will Serve Oilawa Soon Banning MP's Free Cards For Christmas Ministers, deputy ministers, and chairmen of boards and committees are going to have to buy their own Christmas cards this year. A directive has gone out from the Treasury Board barring the fre supply of plain Christmas cards to such officials and permitting their addressing by government stenographers and mailing at government expense. The move Is partially an economy move. But that Is not the whole reason, Treasury Board officials said. "The cards were plain and went out unsigned from a list supplied by the officials. They did not mean anything and there was nothing personal to them. It aeemeU pretty useless." One department suggested to the Board that the plan be scrapped. And the Board was only too happy to oblige. The cards were formerly printed and supplied by the Government. Printing Bureau and In some Instances ran into thousands. Work Saved The ban will not only relieve the bureau from the work of printing the cards but will relieve stenographers of the tedious task of addressing the thousands of cards. There will also be the saving of postage usually a government charge and congestion will be relieved to some extent In the post office handling of thousands of cards carrying no personal meaning and sent out often from lists not revised In years. Fifteen gleaming new byses were officially turned over to the OTC by Canadian Car Ltd., in a ctremony held at the Chateau Launer on Monday. These latest additions to the OTC fieet have a 52-pas.senser capacity and are the largest buses the system has ever had. Itiey cost about SB. 000 each. The buses feature an air- ion city routes. He said there I had: been some controversy over fwhether the city should use small. or large vehicles. Tests wlta the new buses would determine,, the size of bus most suitable tb Ottawa's needs. Higb Licence Fees The OTC ehairmaa registered objections to "excessive" licence fees charged against buses by the Ontario Highways Deparl- suspension system which will' merit. Licence fees for the 15 provide very comfortable riding ; buses for the remainder of this for OTC patrons. Another attraction is the safety gate at the exit door which operates a brake and acceleration inter-lock. The rertif.cate for the 15 diesel buses was turned over to OTC chairman David McMillan by A. W. MacKenzie of the Canadian Car bus division. Mr. McMillan noted some of the buses were now being tested yeaT would come to $1,530. If the buses had been available in the first half of 1957, the full tax would have been $3,060. By contrast trolley buses were charged only a nominal licence fee of $2. Mr. McMillan suggested bus manufacturers should approach the province, seeking a reduction in licence fees. CALENDAR OF EVENTS Today Federated Women's Institute of Canada, Chateau Laurier, all day.

It's alllone, of course, by the magic of home-made radio for Ken and Bud both are "haras." Ken operates his 90-watt basement transmitter as VE3CCV, while Bud's call letters in Germany are DL27Q. - ; Frequent Contact "Last New Year's Day we made solid contact for an hour and a half," Ken Willing told The Citizen. "He came in just Frasces, with Arlene, 10, Delise, seven, and Scott, eight months. Bud went to Germany nearly two years ago as a captain and radar technician with the 40th Canadian Infantry Workshop, RCEME. Before he left, however, the brothers madetcs to establish radio contact with each other, and work was started on building a new transmitter for Ken. . Capt. Willing took part of his own mobile transmitter with him, and overseas he assembled the rest of his equipment from bits and pieces he bought from war surplus in London. It was roughly a year, though, before he had his r.ew transmitter in operation. "It was December 15 when we made our first contact," brother Ken recalled. "That was a week or-10 days after he got his transmitter going." This -.first contact, however. was made over another ham sta-j could find them. Japanese Maples For City A gift of 125 Japanese maple trees from the city of Tokyo i now on its way to Ottawa, last night's meeting of the Recreation and Parks Committee was told. The news wa conveyed in a letter from C. E. Pearce, secretary of the Board of Control. Aid. Charles "St. Germain, chairman of the committee, said the trees would likely be planted In the new Ottawa Municipal Tree Nursery on the north side of Montreal Road, adjacent to the Brewer Creek sewage disposal plant He announced that the nursery would be officially opened this Friday at 12.45 p.m. "Eventually we plan to have the sewage plant completely surrounded and hidden by trees," said Aid. St. Germain. New Plantings Some 1,800 saplings will be planted In the new nursery, Including 800 removed from the city's present nursery on Federal District Commission property on Riverside Drive east of Smyth Road. Deputy parks commissioner R. F. O Neil reported that the planting of 330 young maple trees in the Westwood area, north of Carllng and east of Woodroffe Avenue, had already been Initiated. "We know that last year 80 percent of the trees died," acknowledged commissioner J. Alph Dulude, referring to the city'i previous planting program. "But this ' year we are obtaining our trees from certified nurseries." Previously, he said, hit department had obtained trees'-for planting "wherever we ' tion operated by. Frank Lay, on nearby .Begonia. Avenue. This spurred Ken Willing to finish his own transmitter, ' and within "a week or so the brothers ..had established a regular conversation schedule. . .' "Letter writing went by the ayside then," Ken confessed. The saplings being . planted this year are shorter Mr. Dulude told the committee, but healthier and better looking. "They're only lpfeet high," he said, "but 'Inside of three years trrose trees will be 18 to 20 feet .high:' At times the signals wertare.OS rt VIlCT ly audible, he said, but'usuklly - .

"It was in code that hreceived aews of the birth of Bud's son," Ren recalled, "along with the weight and ail tit statistics." ' In fact, their pievious radio conversation was interrupted hy the news that Bud's wife had to go to the hospital. Reception was too poor to establish contact the following day, but then the code message came Shrough "It's a boy, Scoft McRae." Ken and Bud lost radio contact through the summer, partly because of poor reception. Ken explained that rammer conditions are less favorable for long distance reception, because the bnosphere the mysterious atmospheric layer which bounces radio signals back to earth is then too low. "There was also a lot of sun-spot activity last summer," he added. "Often the BBC was blacked out completely." Contact wa re-established last September, but came to an end a couple of weeks ago when Bud began to dismantle his transmitter for the long journey home. For Capt. Walter R. Willing is returning to Ottawa this Decemberperhaps to build a bigger and bet t st jet Start 97 Fires Children playing with matches have been responsible for 97 fires in Oluflva this year, a city fire department official said last night.' Lt. Roy Duncan told some 20 members of the Carleton Optimist Club that one of the main aims of the current fire prevention campaign is to cut down this hazard. He said a drive to get Ottawa merchants to display signs stating they will not sell matches to the youngsters has proved "highly successful." Lt. Duncan also said Otawa firemen are spending more and more time on fire prevention. KINSMEN NEWSPAPER BINGO No. 25 Tocfffr'j thmhtrs: N-37 0-65
