This department can trace j any revolver or pistol II Ihe name of Ihc regislercd owner, the serial number and make of Ihe weapon is provided. One of the problems now facing all police forces in Can- ada is the failure of registered handgun owners to notify the authorities of changes of ad- dress. "Whenever a person changes his address a permit of trans- port should be obtained from the local police or gun regis- trar and the gun registration should be said. Sgt, Brummllt. If an application to purchase a firearm is denied or registra- tion is refused, a spcical sec- tion of the Criminal Code of Canada allows the case to be lakcn before a magistrate in open court.

Yes, viva women's lib. Is tlicre a major business concern in L'aiuidn which employed large numbers of women llial didn't record a record or near-record profit this year? Profils earned al tlic expense of women who were pairt such a pitance that unem- ployment insurance or welfare must have seemed like an oasis on a desert? Women contributed greatly to the over-all devel- opment ot the economy last year, but their share of tbe earnings pie certainly doesn't make them look like the donors lliey were. Retail departments stores, life insurance com- panies and other companies dealing in (he realm of finance couldn't possibly realize the enormous profits they make without women. If all the women, earning less than per hour, quit their jobs, and these companies were forced to hire men to replace them at the same wages, the revolution the political radicals in North. America have been asking for wotdrl certainly begin. That's if men were stupid enough to work for those salaries at all. Internationally noted same peo- ple who are employed by large corporations say that if women's salaries were brought to par with those paid to men, production and service would in- crease and the companies involved would still re- alize healthy profile. Women comprise more than half of this nation's electorate, and if socialism is creeping in, as so many free-enterprise advocates warn, it is because the women are voting for it. Earning minimum wage while male counterparts do the same or nearly the same job for much more can certainly induce women to vote for politicians who promise a better life through socialism. Socialism is a political method of taking from the rich and distributing among the poor. Among the most avid opponents of creeping socialism are cor- porate businessmen who pay women minimum wage. Perhaps these corporate profit-seekers could rec- ognize women for the work they do and pay them ac- cordingly. Tlie minimum wage is reviewed every so often and increased slightly at least to allow an indivi- dual earning it lo barely survive. This permits the small shop owner, who earns a negligible profit, to employ women at minimum sal- ary and compete with big business while keeping cm- ploj-ment up. The small shop owner who employes a woman or two minimum wage and records a good profit should be entitled lo do so for a lime in order lo expand his facilities. However, if these profits are all funnelled into per- sonal luxuries they should also be coerced, by women employees, inlo paying betler wages. Perhaps one of Ihe best methods of doing this is by forming small local unions without international affiliations. By using collective bargaining and inter-union support in event of a work breakdown, these women could al least keep their salaries within a healthy living standard range. However, when such unions are formed, il should be written into Ihe constitution that they do their own collective bargaining without outside help. If organized labor sounds repulsive lo many women, why don't they try banding together tem- porarily and putting the heal on management for a slice of (he profits. If they don't wanl to increase salaries, then demand profit sharing. Management will be expecled to fight any action to betler the over-all working woman's lot, but it will give in. The future of management-labor relations is in profil sharing and if they get started soon enough, the belter the relations both will have willi each other. Women, as acknowledged by fact and folklore purchase the majority of a household's daily needs. By giving them more money, they can spend more, and keep the money recycling at a faster pace. Also, production and service would increase to produce a better product or make it more pleasur- able to shop. With guaranteed annual income legislation not far In the future, it would seem that right now is Ihe time for companies lo enchrmce Ihcir public relations hy doing what is inevitable.
