A service to plan -leisure ud cultural activities for women visitors lo Montreal, whether they are accompany- ing their husbands on business trips or attending a conven- tion themselves, has been badly needed for i long time, the organizers agreed.

WANT THEM BACK A.day of skiing or snowmo- biling would be easily sched- ujed in winter. Fashion clinics atteEded by hair and style experts could show women when, where and how to wear a cer- ain dress, fashion trend or fad. For those interested in French cuisine, a cooking ses- sion with Mme. Jehane Benoil would be a possibility. "We want visitors to go away interested in culture, in the heartbeat of Miss Delage said, "and we want them to come back." For women accustomed to ravelling alone and spending ong days in strange places, Montreal would not seem for- bidding. However, Miss Duliani, for- mer head of public relations for Sheraton Hotels in Can- ada, says she vividly remem- bers Ihe number of women who sit in hotel lobbies be- cause they don't know where else to go. ALTHOUGH it's not an oft-mentioned item in dis- cussions over highly controversial White Paper, the proposed income 'tax deduction child care expenses is considered a most beneficial one. Yet even this item has became distorted in debate in the House of Coininous lliis week by NDrer Max Bailsman and Marcel Lambert The deduction provides lor child care expenses of up to a child under 14, or a family where both parents are working. The parent with the lowest salary would be allowed the deduction. Mr. Saltsman claimed the 'deduction would be used to serve rich parents who wished (o send their children to boarding schools. the deduc- tion would amount to a rebate of municipal educa- tion taxes for rich families. The first consideration here is that both of these rich parents must be working; the second is that boarding schools and camps qualify for a week lodging, which isnt early enough to subsidize any- one anywhere, and thirdly the deduction cannot exceed two-thirds of the earned 'income of the parent with the lower income. One could go on and say that not too many children are sent to boarding schools youngerthan 14 which would leave the "rich" parents bencfitless, or that not too many of the women in "rich" families are members of the working force, but that seems pretty obvious. And what is Dr. Bailsman's definition of rich? Mr. Lambert's complaint was that the deduction would not be available to married couples who both work in an unincorporated business such as the cor- ner grocery doctors and business offices where the wife is employed as a nurse, bookkeeper or receptionist. Under both the existing law and the new proposed lax scheme, amounts paid by man to his wife in the latter cases are neither reported by the wife as income nor allowed by the husband as a business expense. Many comer grocery stores are adjoined either by living quarters or else the shifts are alternated so that someone is home with pre-schoolers. It's also common in family enterprises for the children to work in the store after school further removing the need for day care help. The number of families, if any, who could misuse the deduction is far outweighed by the number of mothers who will benefit from it. Take as an instance the young woman who is wid- owed or deserted by, her husband with no support. She may have found work to support her and her child- ren to keep tiem off the wetf are rolls... Under the existing lawj however, unless she had a full-time servant employed, she could get no deduc- tion for lie day care expenses incurred. Few women in such circumstances could begin to pay a full-time employee out of their own-salary. This would also apply to a widower who needed child care; but to" a' lesser degree due'to higher wages and-usually a more highly-skilled job. Looks like the grocers have been caught in the government red tape over the issue. For the second time due to "an administrative error" by the federal government the ban on cyclamates has been delayed for failure to publish the ban in the Canada Gazelle. Getting a notice into a mazagine which .is pub- lished twice a month especially when it happens twice is too much to be credible. Grocers who dutifully took cyclamate stocks off the shelves were not even notified of the delay. The next removal is Sept 1 and one could hardly blame the grocers for expecting the same thing again. New evidence meanwhile has shown that cancer- ous tumors can be produced in rats with one-sixth the dose fed in initial tests. This was one complaint about the cyclamate ban that the amount was so high before a danger level was reached. Now'how- ever it's being brought down to a more normal usage. Still leaves a little confusion over whether or whether not. and where do odds and ends like pickles which contain cyclamate fit in with the phase-oul schedule? OTTAWA (CP) The Vanier Institute of the Family took its first step into the policy realm urging that day care services be made available to all Cana- Idians. Institute members approved a policy statement on day care and supplementary child care services which said: 'The institute views a s ossly insufiicic2'. tt-s of day care centres, nursery schools, licenced day-care homes, supervised school luncbu and after-school pro- grams and urges support for an increase of such programs, whether under voluntary or pub- lic auspices."

Military Women Demand Equality WASHINGTON (AP) The women's rights movement has reached Into the Pentagon, the United Slates military bead- quarters- Two women in air force -out wilt public statements deploring their SET'S second-class status in the service. Col. Jeanne Holm, director of women in Ire U.S. Air Force, says: "To dale, top-level manage- ment and executive positions are, for all practical purposes, closed to military women except those directly involved with women's programs." Dr. Hester Turner, chairman of toe Defence Advisory Com- mittee on Women in the Serv- ices, suggests the military' fails to use women's talents to the fullest, and says: is doubtful that a military system which does not itself provide equality of opportunity own members can truly ensue freedom far. its country's cifiiens." REVOLUTION EMERGING The statement! by Col. .Holm and Dr. Turner appeared, some- whit surprisingly, in the nor- mally dry-as-dust Defence Man- agement.

There are more than women serving .in the army navy, marines and air force doing mainly clerical work medical administration, anc certain technical assignments. Without suggesting mat an up- rising is coming among women in uniform, Dr. Turner said 'there is a revolution emerging now" in women's demands for equal rights "and it could ex- tlode." Col. Holm had some practical advice for women in the battle or an even break with men.
