The woman, who asked that her name not be published, said that her husband won't let her go out in the fields any more but she knows the farmers are always looking for help. vron't do their own fields they'd plow them under first." Work begins at 5 a.m. while H's still cool and workers stay Forthcoming; Marriage Mr. and Mrs. Otto Wallewcin of Scandia are pleased to an- nounce the engagement of their eldest daughter Dianna Pear Nixon to Jir. Dale Joseph Bo- bak, eldest son of Jfr. and Mrs Joe Bobak of Lethbridge. The wedding is to take place on May 16 in Salem Lutheran Church at Scandia. with it until 12 noon. "We'll take three hour lunch break white K weather is really hot, and go back into the fields until about 6. About five the mosqui- oes get pretty had." The women who work in the 'iclure Butte area, at least, are licked up by the farmer in the corning or take their own car, so UK! thej- are tome 'each night. They take their own lunch and provide their own water, rhe farmer is not responsible or food or drink. The first Ihiravns takes place wiore the beets are ao nch high. "H's tiring work and f you'can cover an acre a day, you're really she said. The women can pick out 15 acres on a contract basis which amounL; to 521-25 an acre Often the women will choose a plot together, and work togeth- er for company. They say i gets lonely in the field all day with no company but a hoe. THnmng is ready about the first of June and lasts'three weeks to a montn. "You can ge to look like a broiled lobster by the end of the is the usual complaint. The women seem to prefer i contract so they can work a own rate and stop every couple of hours if they wish. Good hoers who work steadily are paid by the hour Thinning UK beets is planned for necessity. The seed drill used to plant seeds paces the seeds an inch apart, wt the sugar beets need a dis- tance of 12 inches to ensure a developed plant. With the ise of mODOgerm seed few dou- >le plants are found but the spacing must still be done an >y hand for the most satisfac lory results.

Boxes jammed their wa from the living room to th front door. This year, she pla ed it smart and had her 'te party in the town hall. The tak was 32 cartons of good, use clothing for the DSC. WINNIPEG (CP) Mobile! mnts are the perfect anwer to our housing crisis" dapae tte restrictions, dueriminatMB and iticism tfaem, Tim Wheeler of Calgary says. Miss Wheeler, puttie relations irector of Canadian Mobile 5ome and Travel Trailer Asso- ciation, Mama "bigoted" and ptople for present restrictions confining nobile homes to commercial and industrial areas. She says the mobile homes are the answer to the housing crisis because they "arc km- in cost but not sub-standard." Miss Wheeler said her asso- ciation is aiming for a decent envinnment for mobile home dwellers, easily accessible to community facilities ant schools. She said Calgary has recom- mended special zoning caicgcr es be created for mobile wrnes; that mobile home neigh- borhoods of 200 to 230 sites be created and that certain sites be designated for this purpose. She also said the tax situation "unfair" with an average lic- ence fee of a month beinj charged on top of the rent paiix months.

The "school is actually sev- eral schools. It is a national project that has been operat- ing in seven communities for three years. It has had fed- eral grants as an indication of interest. Mrs. N. I. Zemans of Cal- gary, co-chairman, says the council now is going to make an effort to involve more vol- untary organizations. She explains the courses are not designed as "how-to1! se- ries except in the broadest MAY AFFECT SYSTEM "We feel we have developed what can be an important tool in helping see how they can influence change and how they can see beyond whatever immediate service they are doing." For instance, she says, a volunteer in a pre-school pro- gram may affect families, the school system and the social and economic lives of the chil- dren. "If women are gong to be involved they have to under- stand government processes and social institutions. "The old role is being taken away from the middle-class woman who has been the typi- cal volunteer. Volunteer or- ganizations as we have been used to them mn't last unless they work together, take a took at themselves and stop playing their traditional roles of minding someone else's business." Mrs. Zemans points cut that values are changing and some volunteers may find theirs need flexibility if they are to be useful. New types of social effort are being tried 'and more and more young, the poor, making their own efforts and saying they want no interfer- ence. "If we are going to.view ourselves as citizens, we.have to understand what these new movements mean, and how they relate to social issues and how we an relate to them." ADAPT LOCALLY The specifics of me course were established as NCJW na- tional policy, but Mrs. Ze- mans .says each community school has adapted them to local interests and resources. The courses teach basic human rights, how the com- munity functions, and how it affects citizens. Each school is held for 10 or U weeks. Most have been limited to about 23 students, not all NCJW members. The Edmonton school last year had students from the Junior League, the Anglican Church Women, the Catholic Women's League, the Indian and Metis women's organiza- tion and women from a wel- fare group. When the course was over they decided to stay together as a group, Mrs. Ze- mans says. "Tnis has implications for working out ways that women's organizations could work together." In Montreal, NCJW mem- bers met with women from the National Council of Women and the Quebec Fed- eration of Women to discuss setting up a school. The three groups now have a joinlicom- mittce and a formal structure within which they can wort with each other, quite apart from the school. CO TO COMMUNITY Two NCJW members in each city have had training on bow to organize a school. They go to the community for its staff, to both professionals and volunteers. Each school uses field trips as well as lec- tures and discussions. Winnipeg students went to .THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes gas o this ng< ideally lo this operation.
