Dr. Geraldine Gage of Pennsylvania State University's College of Human Development said the life-time average of all economic activity of the average woman is based on a study she completed last winter. She said the figure was based on the averages of the time a woman would spend in the labor force, typical job she would hold, length of time 'spent in'routine physical household tasks and the minimum wage these duties would command in the labor force. Number of children was also .a factor. Frozen food prices increase OTTAWA (CP) Canned and frozen food is expected to increase 20 to 30 per cent in price this year, the outgoing president of the Canadian Food Processors Association isaid on the weekend. In an interview, Garnet Nix of York Farms Ltd., said the increased prices to consumers are being caused by higher costs of the raw products, energy and packaging as well as the world wheat crisis of a year ago. Mr. Nix said the international wheat crisis drew many fruit and vegetable farmers into that field. He said even if the world wheat situation is good this year, canned and frozen fruit and vegetable prices will re- main high until 1975 because companies are locked into contracts with the farmers until that time. The industry, he said, faces increases of 60 per cent in energy costs this year and 45- to 100-per-cent increases in the costs of raw products.

Volunteers develop projects overseas LONDON (Reuter) "Hey, white a truck driver yelled at a young Englishwoman walking down a street in a suburb of Kingston, Jamaica, only to be rebuffed by an indignant local who turned to the driver and said, "She no while girl, she teach here." Both the girl and her organization, Voluntary Service Overseas take great pride in the incident. It illustrates a level of integration with a local community which is the aim of every VSO volunteer. By latest count there are volunteers working in some 50 different countries to break through, in the words of a spokesman, "the vicious circle of underdevelopment, poverty and ignorance." VSO was founded in 1958 to assign volunteers to development projects overseas. Receiving three-quarters of its million) budget from the British 'government and the balance from private and corporate sponsors, VSO is open to all British citizens over the age of 18. Some elderly A few of the volunteers are retired people who make up in skills and experience what they might lack in youthful energy. A 71-year-old veteran, appalled by the thought of retirement, was lecturing last year at the animal health and industry training institute outisde Nairobi, Kenya. At the other end of the scale an 18-year- old, just out of school, was teaching Eng- lish and history in the Gilbert and Ellice Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Both the pensioner and the teen-ager underwent a stringent selection process before being assigned to their than half the applicants are turned down. The selectors attach great importance to stability, a sense of humor, tenacity and the ability to communicate with people. Equally, the selection board looks for specialized and sometimes highly sophis- ticated skills. The majority of volunteers are given, teaching assignments, as university lecturers in Egypt and Indonesia or as primary school teachers in west Africa and the Caribbean. Posts available But there is a wide variety of other posts, ranging from speech therapists to librarians, from aircraft maintenance engineers to agricultural economists with experience in co-operative farming. Whatever the actual job and the qualifications of the volunteer, the conditions of service are challenging and even austere. After a short training course, the successful applicant receives a modest grant towards equipping himself and passage to the host country. The volunteer serves there usually for two years, receiving free accommodation and medical care and an allowance of some a week. At the end of an assignment the volunteer qualifies for a modest resettlement grant on his return home. Many employers consider VSO service as valuable experience and some hold positions open for volunteers when they return, but clearly the rewards are personal and not monetary. There is a consensus among the volunteers when they return that their VSO service constituted a two-way benefit, that in the developing countries where they served they took just as much as they gave. This does not rest solely on the scope that VSO gives a young teacher, doctor or engineer to gain practical experience and a degree of responsibility at an early age. The personal rewards are essentially the increased awareness of others gained through working with a community.
