Population growth steadily declining in Soviet Union MOSCOW (Reuter) Vast halt emptv spaces facing China do not seem to worrv the Kremlin leaders unduly to ]udgc bv their approach to the steadilv declining population growth rate in the Soviet Union Officialdom occasionally snipes at what it calls the egoism of bachelors who are taxed an extra six per cent At the same time writers often deplore the soaring di- vot te rate which has climbed to about W per 000 compared with two million marriages in cities of the Luropean part of the eountrv savs one Soviet jour nal Nevertheless the one or two

has been legal for 20 vears and todav is the most prevalent form of birth control It is cheap and so- cidllv acceptable but imposes enormous demands on hospi- tals On the whole abortion is preferred to contraception al though birth control pills are sold in drugstores here along with more traditional devices GROWTH SLOW 1 he Soviet Fmon covers 16 5 per cent ot the earth s surface but its c urrent 251 million pop- ulation is only 6 7 per cent of the world s total Computers predict a Soviet population of between 320 and 340 million by the end of the century Bv that time China s popu lation will have topped the one billion rritirk even if the pre sent slow Soviet growth rate is applied to China s present 800 million The annual rate of growth of the Soviet population has sunk in 11 years from 1 84 per cent in 1961 to 0 91 per cent by the end of 1972 the latest available statistic The natu- ral increase of the population was 9 i per 1 000 in 1972 Apart from national secur ity as the present antagonistic relations with dropping Soviet birthrate also presents eco nomic implications as the pop- ulation bulge of the 1930s moves towards retirement ape Bv the end of the 70s the woi king proportion of the pop ulation will have fallen to 54 per cent Bv 1990 the burden ot financing pensions and maintaining a high national in come will fall upon an even smaller proportion The Kremlin s

Population trends are tol lowing national religious and cultural patterns Among Moslems in central Asia and the Caucasus for instance the women still stav at home This plus Moslem prohibition of abortion maintains high birthrates But in the Russian areas women have seized upon the right to an independent exis tenre based on their own earn- ing power which is a powerful discouragement to large families When thev marry they are likelv to delay having chil dren until thev have saved enough monev and acquired a small apartment which can take between five and 11 vears While they wait the urge to have a good time acquire a car perhaps spend weekends at a country dacha all mili- tate against starting a family Social flux is eroding the old Russian image of the ba ancient grand- mother crouched beside a stove keeping an eye on grandchildren washing cleaning and tidying for the family Babushkas today qualify in- creasingly for pensions and live in their own one-room apartment free from the cares and chores of a younger familv Collective farmers also have pension rights so the old peasant s incentive to pro- duce many children espe cially sons to work his land and guarantee him a place by the fire m old age is also fad- ing In this time of change there is still an al- most total lack of education about sex and marriage This in turn means that many young Russians marry totally unprepared for their new role as eventually parents That is the reason for the enormous abortion rate and the rocketing rise in divorces All-in-all growing prosper- ity has focused attention more on material needs and so far the Soviet state sees no serious reason to intervene Women's action must include men's liberation By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer The aim of women's movement must include the liberation of men otherwise it's no good an officer of the Human Rights Commission of Alberta said here Wednesday Reg Newkirk formerly of Lethbndge, was speaking at a Women's Place seminar at the Lethbndge Public Library He said men must get away from the traditional stereotypes of their roles Meekness, is not necessarily a characteristic of women If more men had it we might be a lot better off Mr Newkirk discussed attitudes toward women and the role the Human Rights Commission takes when women wish to challenge those attitudes and dis- criminatory practices The problem of discrimination is rooted in the foun- dation of civilization he said He explained that prejudice is blind and discrimina- tion comes from prejudice 'Both evolve from basic insecurity and fear Some employers tend to cover up their dis- criminations and prejudices by using the generaliza- tion I ve had bad experiences with women, In dians negroes, so I don t want them anymore He said the commission has challenged Albertans to recognize the rights of women No law is worth anything unless those who are be ing protected recognize it Those who persist in not recognizing their own rights deserve what s coming to them Mr Newkirk quoted such scholars as Aristotle Rousseau and Alfred Lord Tennyson who said in their philosophies that women were classed lower than men in stature Thev believed a female is a female by a certain lack of qualities a woman was made to yield to men and put up with their injustice a woman is the less of man He said women accepted their roles purposes and functions as housewives mothers and sex partners and those who didn t were referred to as witches mean ing they are outside of the norm The majority of women accepted their limited positions and liberators were looked upon as traitors All women except witches were meek passive non-cornpetitive emotional and lacking intelligence Through the years they received vocational training rather than intellectual In Alberta he said verv few women hold jobs re quiring responsibility Nurses teachers home economists and secretaries which are most common are jobs supporting men These are dead-end jobs with no chance for advancement If anv person believes he or she is being dii, criminated against the Human Rights. Commission will investigate the situation At, stated in the Individual s Rights Protection Act it is recognized in Alberta as a fundamental principle and as a matter of public policv that all persons are equal in dignitv and rights without regard to race religious beliefs color sex age ancestry or place of origin THE BETTER HALF By Barnes I bumped into an old flame of yours today the one you said you should married I bought a couple of his balloons Silver wedding gifts only link to tradition NEW YORK (AP) Some of todav s brides may wear blue jeans and carry field flowers Most brides however still walk down the aisle in vards of silk and lace since tradition seems to rule when a girl marries Whatever the ceremony the contemporary bride is a different woman from her mother Bridal registries and gift giving services are noting trends that reflect these differences Wedding gifts they report are compact mobile and easv to care for Small electrical appliances audio-visual equipment and linens are high on the list of preferences Silver seems to be the one link to tradition A recent Modern Bride magazine report said 38 per tent of todav s brides have completed college The survey showed that 66 per cent are employed and their age is 20 8 vears These statistics show a better educated career oriented more mature woman whose lifestyle re- quires more time away from home The gift for the bride must also fit into a shrinking en- vironment PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES BLACKOUT (Fiaycd Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upttairt) EVERY THURS.-8 p.m. CASH BINGO ST.
