Simpkins to write about  our pottery club here in f Wilson Creek. So here  goes.  It is probable that pottery was  discovered, in" the same way as  "roast pork. Those of* yoa .who  have read essays of Elia by  Charles Lamb will remember  that a prehistoric Chinese had  the misfortune (as be thought)  to have his house burn down.  The local fire brigade was unable to cope with the blaze, as  there were no telephones. -y_  At that time pigs were kept in  the house as pets, and to dean  -.up the garbage, a prudent sav-  >. ing of SL50 a month-One unfortunate porker was rest able  to effect an exit,.so when the  blaze, died down, the deiidous-  ness of-roast pork,' and" especially toe; crackling, was-dlscovt.  ered. -Word: got7 around to the  neighbors and many homes  burned   down,   till-the   idea  -soaked in. that pigs could be  roasted without burning the  house down, yyr-7   -  In and^ days raw clay vessels and pots* were made���on-  there was less bumping off with  a club Of their own wives,; and  dragging home by tbe'biir their  neighbor's girt friendy while  she was out picking' blueberries. That practice had ted to a  lotj of ill feeling. In fact, the  discovery of pottery led to a  greater improvement in marital  relations, than anything else up  toi the; discovery of electric  mixers, etc.  -Bat," yoa will say,-"how  come a cavewoman burnt  down a wattle hut?

Davies, after expressing thanks to the -ladies  auxiliary- for serving such a  , wonderful meal, mentioned that  one of the privileges of growing  old is the .pleasure of holding  an honorary office. Being part  of a group which has worked  . so hard and accomplished so  much,' (as was proved by the  outstanding attendance of 162  people) made him very proud  he said.

Councillor Swain agreed,, "we  are doing it for the ratepayers".  he said, "yet they will not cooperate."

Ottawa, meanwhile, has been holding the line. But it still takes 20  cents - oat cl every dollar, we  ' earn to pay our federal tolls.  The growing complexity of  naodern government is baffling  to 'most politicians. Even Cabinet Ministers are having difficulty understanding the intricacies of their departments. So  they call in experts. This was  what Prime Minister 3Dief��K  baker did back in 196L He, appointed Mr. Grant Gtassco to  bead up a Royal Commission  on-government organization in  the hope that it would suggest :  ways and means of streamlining* oar affairs. * A  Us report published just over*-]  a  year  ago,   contained   more.  About  a  third  have been  put  into effect. As each means a ������-  simplification of procedure or  greater resort to outside help,  they are already adding up to  substantial savings to time aad  effort in Ottawa.  >At- first many of our civil  servants were against the idea.  Re-organization they, thought  would cause some of them to  lose their jobs. But oftea it  means new techniques and  more challenging, opportunities  instead. So they have an incentive to re-shape their efforts  along more business-like lines.  As many Canadians J know,  and as the Glassco Commission _���  found out, oar federal* evil  ^service is, itself, often hamper-  *ed by unnecessary restrictions.  Individually, these people are  competent enough. But awkward procedures and ancient,  equipment can make anyone *  look bad.

If he can  now shift emphasis from the  flag to the constitution without  losing too much face for himself or the party and reform  ranks around this issue ' he  would like to do.-'so. Mr. Pearson may conceivably give him  that' opportunity. He and his  party too have been getting reports from' the grass roots.  When King in 1926 announced  that, he would appeal to the  country on the Byng issue (here  were plenty of doubts within  his cabinet. But in King's astute hands the academic complications that are still being  argued today by the constitu-  {ionalists were swept aside and  n its" over-simplified form the  Byng incident brought Mr. King  back with a working majority.  The Fulton formula provides  a method whereby a federal  parliament may delegate to  provincial  legislatures   any. of  on the opposition.  Diefenbaker has already accused the Liberals of trying to  "bfilkanize" Canada and' Canadians are going to hear that  word a great deal iri the weeks  arid months ahead. .,  One difficulty Diefenbaker  will have is that the Tory premiers of Manitoba, Ontario, No- -  va Scotia and Prince Edward ^  Islam] are as much parties*to  the Fulton formula as' is the  Liberal government in Ottawa,  CAPITAL HILL CAPSULES  If Finance Minister Gordon's  recent speeches can be considered as straws in a wind the  Canadian taxpayer may be in  - a'happy frame of mind after  his next budget. He is emphasizing the need for continuing  expansionary policy which m  the plain English of the man on  the street can be interpreted as  tax cuts.
