The accounting came in the form of written answers to questions by Frank Howard On some recommendations, no concrete action had been taken. On the recommendation that abortion by a qualified medical practitioner be allowed on the request of any woman less than 12 weeks pregnant, the govern- ment said it is giving no consid- eration to changing present laws, which require a woman to get the approval of a hospital board before having an abor- tion. Mr. Howard asked also about the recommendation that the three-year separation require- ment for a divorce be reduced to The reply: "Consideration is being given to this recommendation along with other proposed amend- ments to the Divorce Act. It is probable that amendments to the Divorce Act will not be pro- posed until after a report on the act has been received from the law reform commission of Can- ada." STUDY PUBLICATIONS In another reply, the govern- ment said the public service commission is monitoring the text and illustrations of its pub- lications to ensure there is no "sex-typing" of occupations. An example of sex-typing would be always showing one sex in pho- tographs of a particular occupa- tion. The government also said it has met the recommendation that at least 10 per cent of per- sonnel in the career-assignment program (CAP) be women. CAP is the usual route to higher i positions in the civil service. Studies were under way on how women might be employed as regular members of the RCMP. The armed forces had opened many job categories to women, although not in combat Canadian Forces policy was not to force a woman out of the armed forces when she has a child, the government said in reply to another question. The woman would be released only at her own request "or where there is a clear indication that her retention will conflict with service requirements."

In a cigar factory visited in Havana there were more women than men, sorting and stripping the leaves and hand-rolling the more expensive cigars. They sat in rows at long tables under good electric lighting. To break the monotony, read- ers are supplied or sometimes musicians play and sing on the raised platform at the front of the largest room or stroll through the other rooms. At the town of Cardenas near Varadero Beach, women work at the light jobs in the group if allied factories based on the sugar cane. Cuba's one has a ration card. The stores are pitifully empty.
