Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Thursdoy, August 13, T970 Women May Get More Than They Bargained For By RAY DICK WASHINGTON (CP) After 47 years of female prodding, the House of Representatives lias fi- nally passed an cqual-rights- for-women amendment to the constitution. But the women may get more than they bar- gain for. While women proponents of the bill hailed its passing as a great victory for the liberation movement, other prominent feminists say that men will get most of the benefits. The amendment, passed by a vote of 346 to 15, now must go to the Senate where it is almost assured of passage because 83 senators co-sponsored it, and then be ratified by legislatures of three-quarters of the 50 states. It is unusual in its the wording guaranteeing equal rights for men as well as it is long on impli- cations. Pried out of the House judici- ary committee where it had been buried for -17 years, the amendment reads: "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the U.S. or by any state on account of sex." DUAL EFFECT That one sentence, if en- graved in the constitution, would strip away all limitations on the rights of women, opening a vast area for Supreme Court interpretation, and divest women of legal protections they now possess. In other words, says judiciary committee chairman Emanuel Celler, an opponent of the mea- sure, women would be subject to the military draft and to ali- mony payments. At least one woman of 10 in the House agrees with Celler, to a point. Leonor Sullivan of Missouri sees the amendment as a threa to the shields against female ploitation that were considere progressive landmarks w h e they were erected. She was ne in the House for the debate. The amendment has been in troduceu in every Congres since 1923, the year Celler, 8 year-old New York Dcmocra came to the House. It has ha no hearing by the House judic ary committee since 1948, th year before Celler becam chairman. Calling it a "step backward, Celler said the amendmen sponsored by Martha Griffitl (Dem. Michj would destroy a the laws protecting wome workers that labor has built u over the years. TO NO AVAIL He drew hoots of derisio from a House gallery packe with females when he said ser ous "psychological, physiolog cal and sociological difference do exist between male and fern ale" fact "we have since Adam gave his rib t make a woman." "There is as much difference between a male and a female as between a horse chestnut and chestnut he continued "The only place where rea equality exists is in the ceme- tery." He was fighting a losing bal tie, however. The Democrat! and Republican leader-Shi] spoke out strongly in support o the measure, as did the chair men of the Democratic and Re- publican national committees. A number of members hat expressed reservations pri vately about the amendment but when it canie time to vote and all of those women cant paign workers and voters had tc be considered, there was littl doubt about the outcome. Downtoivn Parking On Its Way Out NEW YORK (AP) By the end of the decade downtown street parking as it now is known may be a thing of the past. By then a person will be able to drive his car onto a high speed computerized conveyor belt system that will park and retrieve it automatically in under a minute. Or he may drop it off at a ga- rage outside town capable of bousing several thousand vehi- cles and be whisked to work 'a a mini-transit. Such systems have been de- veloped or'now are under con- struction. In the next 10 years, the ap- proximately cars on U.S. roads today are. expected to increase to says the American Automobile Asso- ciation. "Traffic congestion in down- town areas will become so heavy that all parking on city Pakistanis Die From Cholera DACCA (AP) Nearly 100 Pakistanis have died of cholera during the last two weeks in two flood-hit districts, the daily newspaper Ittefaq re- ported Wednesday. Official reports in the district, Naridpur and Kushtia, confirm the cholera reports, but the widespread flooding has made an exact death and illness loll from the waterlogged villages impossible. streets will have to be elimi said Norene Dann Mar tin, executive vice-president o the National Parking Associa tion. TO INCREASE FACILITIES To meet tile parking squeezes the industry plans to increase its current invest ment in commercial projects by another over the next decade, the association said. "By 1980, parking will be such a sophisticated part of the American landscape that the old, familiar parking lot may be in the same class as the country said Joe Blasi, the asso- ciation's president. Futuristic trends are already in sight. A self-service parking garage run by Car Park Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla., uses closed- circuit television to watch over car's parked at the various lev- els of its multi-storey structure In Denver a firm has built 'an oblong-like ferris wheel system that can accommodate about 20 cars in the space that normallj parks two. Soaring land costs have forced a Wheeling, W.Va., ga- rage to share space with a jail- house' which is situated on top oJ it. Garages topped by sports playing fields can be found in Tulsa, Okla., and Pittsburgh, Pa. The garage of the future will tend to be a multi-level, self- service facility, the parking as- sociation said. It will probably he owned by some large parking chain since the small independent operator is rapidly disappearing. STEADY SPECTACLES-lnventcr W. E.

Something New In Education SASKATOON (CP) Some- thing new in education will be put into effect this fall in a local separate high school. It is called contract teaching and it allows students to go through a subject independent of formal, day-to-day instruc- tion. Under the system, students receive an explanatory outline of the material in a course and :hey leam it with the aid of extbooks and instructional ma- erials as well as having access o a teacher if the going gets rough. Objectives of the new system are to develop responsibility and self-discipline in students, o use the special talents of each teacher and to improve in- dividualization of instruction. Once given their contract, which involves a specified! amount of learning within a specified period, students then would have three means of study. Large-group instruction would >e used mainly for presenting "ilms or encouraging students, smaller groups of 25 or less would seek help from a teacher or fellow students, and inde- pendent study would allow the itudent not to attend classes, but work by himself. When a student completes a specific part, a test would be given and then another contract undertaken.
