The Ottawa Citizen Tennis lagging in The Recreation and Parks Committee has qualms the city is doing too little to promote tennis these days. The city is doing even less for bocce (lawn bowling, Italian style). The committee Monday night decided it could not help St. James' United Church Tennis Club which needs $2,000 for repairs, funds to operate and volunteer supervisors if it is to remain open this season. City Council in 1929, Recreation Commissioner J. A. Dulude explained, laid down a policy that the Recreation Department should not become involved in recreation projects on non city-owned land. "Maybe the city should be doing more for tennis," said committee chairman Aid. Kenneth Fogarty. Deputy Recreation Commission Margaret Farr said several years ago the Ottawa District Lawn Tennis Association offered the use of all tennis clubs in the city if the city would sponsor a junior program. The Recreation Department had a star player on its staff as instructor and for several years the program was a huge success. It faltered when the instructors left. The committee agreed any program would depend on instructors. HOUSE Of HUNTER PRESENTS The Rill. ova w mmw w ma-mr w m tSn 2J "A" Raised faceted markers and numerals.

"It's no use giving a child skis and showing him a hill." Aid. Fogarty asked Mr. Dulude to find out what other cities were doing in the way of tennis promotion. . Italian sport As for bocce, the Order of Italo-Canadians asked for space on either Plouffe or Chaudiere Parks plus a hut for storing equipment. Mr. Dulude told the committee a space 130 feet square was needed and was unavailable at either park, both of which are already overcrowded. Mr. Dulude agreed to see if the Italian group would like to use that part of Hawthorne Park which won't be consumed by the Queensway. In other action the committee acceded to the Westwood Community Association's wish that Westwood Park remain free of Little League baseball. Mr. Dulude will discuss Carlington Tennis Club's proposal to lease the same park for four tennis courts and a clubhouse with the association. The committee will recommend that the city's newest arena be named Walkley Arena in Walkley Park in honor of the pioneer family which fettled in that district in 1827. At the request of Board of Control the committee also is m a P. I Ottawa recommending adoption of certain criteria for determining the use of playground areas for Little League baseball and the installation of bleachers, dug-outs and fencing. Individual treatment The committee felt each request should be treated separately. It took the view bleachers and dug-outs could be installed, subject to the department's prior approval, if they were easily removable and were painted prior to the season's start. It opposed fencing because of the maintenance problem created, interference with the flexibility of the playground, the sense of propriety it gave a select group using that area and the detraction from the aesthetic appearance of the park. The committee lacked a quorum but after waiting 40 minutes went ahead with the agenda. It was decided to submit all recommendations approved to the absent members before they were forwarded to Board of Control. 2 families, 12 children desperate Two Ottawa families with a total of 12 children are in desperate circumstances today. One family is living in a house which has no roof; the other is in a dwelling with no water, sewage or electricity. Both homes are scheduled for demolition but the families have found nowhere else to go. The city welfare department has appealed for help in finding some shelter for either family. At 271 Bay Street, a mother, father and seven children are in a home which is being demolished under order of-the Housing Standards Board. The roof has been removed and the rain is saturating the family and their belongings. At 391 Gladstone Avenue, a widow and five children are occupying a completely un-Serviced house. They are living there rent free; the landlord intends to demolish as soon as possible, but does not wish to force the family, recently burned out In a fire on Fleet Street, to move onto the sidewalk. Fellowships are awarded Five residents of Ottawa have been named among 15 Carleton University students receiving graduate fellowships. The awards, eight of $1,500 and seven of $2,200, are made to students working on courses at master's and doctoral degree levels. They include Peter E. Fox, 1367 Bloomsbury Cres., a graduate of Queen's University, now studying at Carle-ton; toward a degree in geology; Mrs. Edward Schneider, 1481 Morissette Ave., a graduate of St. Andrew's University, Scotland and R u t-gers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, in plant physiology. Mrs. Schneider also held a Carleton fellowship in the 1962-63 academic I year. Working toward a Master of Arts degree is C. E. Henry, 290 First Ave., who holds his Bachelor of Science from McGill University and now studying public administration at Carleton. Leo Van Mellaert, 315 Holm-wood Ave., is studying toward hisMaster of Engineering. He has a diploma in technical engineering from De Nayer Institute in B e 1-gium and is in technical engineering at Carleton. Howard L. Lovell, 1784 Paisley Ave., who graduated with his Bachlor of Science from Carleton, is now working toward his Master of Science degree in geology. Some 15 additional graduate awards in a number of fields have yet to be announced. Press officer suffers stroke WASHINGTON (CP) -The condition of Robert A. Farqu-harson, Canadian diplomat, who has been in hospital with a heart condition, worsened during the night with a report that he now has suffered a stroke." The hospital, however, continued to list his condition as "fair" unchanged from Monday's report. Higher federal taxes 'certainly' this year Increased federal taxes are considered "a certainty" in Finance Minister Walter Gordon's first budget, already promised for June. Speculation, which has already begun, focuses on increased income taxes and the imposition of excise or sales taxes on such consumer services as electricity, telephone, (at least long distance telephone calls), and water. In earlier years there have been special excise taxes on electricity and long distance telephone cals. It is recalled Prime Minister Pearson, as opposition leader in the campaign preceding the April 8 election, warned: that a Liberal government would have to take "unpleasant measures" to put Canadian government financial affairs on a sound basis. The trend of a succession of large deficits during the Die-fenbaker Conservative governments since 1957, the Pearson government feels, has to be halted. Aside from budget deficits the Old Age Pension Fund and the Unemployment Insurance Fund both are seriously in the red. Mr. Gordon, since taking office, has stated Liberal government policy will aim at a balanced budget, though it may take three or four years before it can be achieved. Liberal plans The Pearson government also has plans of its own for "getting the Canadian econ WERE YOU ABSENT when the volunteer canvasser called last night?

Canadian Cancer Society CARLETON UNIT 386 Maclaren St., Ottawa (receipts for tax purposes) A WORTHY WORK For the You are fortunate in having a sound foundation for family security. But for your family's sake it's wise to check group benefits against total family needs. For example group plan benefits usually terminate at a specific age such as 65. Men, however, are living longer these days and the many wives who outlive their husbands demonstrate the need for protection beyond the limiting age. Permanent insurance gives this lifetime protection plus the extra advantage of a built-in savings fund. This fund can be used in many ways; for example in emergencies to ease the impact of a financial crisis or to meet the expenses of a son's college education. Group insurance is doing a wonderful job of providing hundreds of thousands of Canadian families with basic security (for as long as it remains in force). More and more families are finding that it's only v hcii they combine group with permanent insurance can they be sure of complete coverage.

All such plans many of them to be unveiled in the speech from the throne when Parliament opens on May 16 will cost considerable sums. Prime Minister Pearson is having talks with Prime Minister Macmillan this week and with President Kennedy May 10-11. Meanwhile, under Justice Minister Lionel Chevrier as acting prime minister, the cabinet will be driving ahead as rapidly as possible in deciding upon the chief government measures to be introduced within Mr. Pearson's "60 days of decision". The drafting of all the government legislation to be brought forward presents a herculean task for the Justice Department officials responsible. Hellver will visit forces Defence Minister Paul Hellyer will visit Canadian air force and army units stationed with the NATO forces in Europe Thursday and Friday, defence headquarters said today. After conferences in London with British Defence Minister Thorneycroft, Mr. Hellyer will fly to No. 3 wing of the 1st RCAF air division, based at Zweibruecken, West Germany, on Thursday afternoon. with a check up and a cheque . . . - A GREAT CAUSE 1 man who EiliiJH BIG i HilIIi!
