Editorial CommentSome time has passed since the form and content of the Standard, both actual and potential, was the subject of a J.C.C. meeting. We have, tried to implement some of the suggestions which came out of that meeting, and certainly we're more 'newsy'. But we're not out of the wood yet. We need more and more involvement by more and more people if we are to fulfill our potential. More hard information from the top. More views and reactions from everywhere.
MEMORANDUMWill you please co-operate in our exercise to speed the disposal of rubbish. On Thursday, 23rd November an issue of paper sacks will be made to all wards and departments and you are asked to place all flammable rubbish therein, for ease of collection and incineration. Please continue to place bottles, cans and aerosols of an explosive nature in the dustbin for tipping.

STEPPING STONES CLUBA Social Evening is being held on Friday, 29th December at St. Mary's Catholic Club, W'gton. Staff are asked to support this venture as the proceeds are in aid of Stepping Stones Club. There will be a late bar. Tickets, which are £1.00 each, are available from Mr J. Beck and Mr E. Villiers.
LIBRARY NOTEOver the last few years we have been receiving posters and similar display items for the wards from a large number of foreign Embassies. (We still have a few in stock). Often they send us booklets, maps and tourist information as well. If you haven't already decided where you will spend your holiday next year why not have a flip through some possibilities in the comfort of your own library? Norway, Malta, Luxembourg, Israel, Iran, Netherlands, Greece. And if you want to leave the Joneses behind good and proper how about China? Cuba? Ecuador?
