J-amil For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor From Suffrage To Status Part Two Political, Economic Stagnation BEFORE YOU BUY CHECK OUR EVERYDAY LOW PRICES AS adults we put up with a lot of irritating little things without doing anything constructive about it. We complain about dogs running loose but never call the pound. We mutter into our pillows about the screaming mufferless motorcycle that makes a reg- ular route past the house, but never call the police. Oh well they'll go away in a minute and we don't really like to make the effort to create an issue. There are a lot of Lethbridge kids who wish someone would make an effort on their behalf and dp something constructive about the thievery at the city pools. Theft is unfortunately to be expected wherever kids congregate schools, pools or playgrounds. What gripes some of these kids is that the loot isn't all that big. A dime and a bus ticket. One young fellow told me he'd tried hiding it in his shirt, his shorts, and his shoes. "It doesn't matter where I put it, they always find it." he said. Including the time he gave his bus ticket to another younger boy who'd had his ticket stolen, he's running about 30 per cent odds in favor of getting a ride home. Tliis week a young girl had her eyeglasses taken. This borders on vandalism since they aren't even an exchangeable commodity. Wear a pair of glasses which aren't yours and nurse the headache for doing.so. A dime and a bus- ticket are a small sum but considering the budget of many young children it's a lot when it's lost. Lockers are available at a dime a shot but many children can't afford' that either. For watches, wallets and the blue-striped runners the boys are sporting, they are a must but it doesn't seem economical to spend a dime to save a dime. If there are kids who aren't taught not to take what isn't theirs, or pranksters who take everything in sight, why do we just accept it? Why not schedule a patrol through locker areas? If it costs too much to hire extra staff why not utilize the kids themselves. Hire a few 12 or 13-year-olds to shift off on troubled time shots, one per shift. Pay? a free swim- ming pass. I know kids who would be happy to do it. It's a position of trust which young people appre- ciate being given at any time. Troublemakers wouldn't have the empty locker room to operate in, and other children would feel safer in knowing their belongings were safe too. It isn't as though this were a summer problem, it goes on all winter when the weather is not con- ducive to walking home. Let's give the problem feme thought and the kids a break. By ALISON GODDARD What do the feminists have in mind? On the subject of employment, the feminists say it's not what's on their minds but what's in their paychecks that counts. Tliey claim busi- ness is unfair to women. And they have voluminous statistics to back them up. Not only do men earn higher wages j but women are kept out of cer- 1 tarn fields or jobs considered "man's work." Feminists maintain women can fill male work boots if necessary, and nave done so. In Second World War, Rosie the Riveter was a national heroine. But now, al- most three decades later, wom- en who attempt to enter the predominantly male world of sports are considered freakish. For example: girl jockeys are front-page news and the wom- an qualified as the first lady umpire can't get to first base when it comes to getting hired. But in countries where a short- age of males threatens either survival or the economic sys- tem, women are successfully employed in what are com- monly called man-sized jobs.

COW BRAND old is an astronaut and Russian women work at ar- duous railroad track repair- work. In Israel, women serve in the army. In Sweden, wom- en work as miners and bus drivers. FEMALE LABOR FORCE In the United Slates, there are 30-millioii women in the labor force. But the feminists claim that in Industry, govern- ment and the professions wom- en are generally hired last, paid last, paid least, passed over for promotions, and held to the drudgery of routine work. Satistics hear this out. The ma- jority of women are employed in such low-paying jobs as clerks, sales workers and do- mestic. Even a college diploma can't guarantee a chance at up- ward mobility: nearly one-fifth of the women with a BA degree work in factories or as clerks or cooks. The feminists have marshall- ed other statistics to back up their cause: Women receive 40 per cent less pay than men for similar jobs. Less than two per cent of Americans earning or more annually are women. Half the women who work are paid yearly salaries under considerably less than the corresponding amounts for men. After half a century of women's suffrage, there is only one woman in the U.S. Senate. Only seven per cent of physicians are women, com- pared to 15 per cent in Eng- land and 75 per cent in the Soviet Union. THE YEARS AHEAD The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of sex, has opened up jobs as steamship yeomen, telephone switchmen and jockeys to the fairer sex. But the feminists are not content with these vic- tories alone. They are fighting "protective" state employment Jaws that bar them from over- time pay or supervisory posi- tions. They are also demanding the means and social change that enable them to com- bine marriage with careers: day-care centers for the chil- dren of working mothers, ex- tened maternity leaves, and a sharing of parental roles along with changes in work sched- ules. ''There is nothing magical about the nine-to-five workday, designed mainly for the convenience of says Richard E. Parson, psycholo- gist. Men will bent-fit from these changes, too. Dr. Parson explained: "They'll have the chance to enjoy fatherhood, to share in the responsibilities, and not feel as if they have to be the sole providers." Even mature women, partic- ularly the 15-n'illion over the age of 45 now employed full- time, will share in the financial and emotional rewards. But more drastic changes lie in the years ahead as mechanization and automation put a higher priority on "brains and according to Dr. Rosemary, Park, a chancellor at the Uni- versity of California in Los An- gelei. "Men and women will tend to become more alike in their economic she said. "Sometimes I think this is what our more radical youth are trying to tell us today when the boys grow long hair and the girls wear boots and pants."
