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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
