Many a widow finds herself with other widows or bitter divorcees or man-hating ca- reer women. All these dames are just as miserable and isolated from happily married people as she is. And get to be DEAR ANN I used my influence to get a friend a job that pays a year. Hal is in his middle and has a nice personality. His wife works as a waitress. The fellow flad been unemployed for nearly a year. Hal lasted six months and was fired two weeks ago. Now he is back to his old rou- tine of sleeping till noon and bumming around with friends. I asked a co-worker why he was let go. The an- swer during the Since I had helped Hal get the job I decided to talk to him. He denied everything said he had had a beer with lunch on occasion but he was never drunk.

Advisory council a chance for change By CHERYL HAWKES OTTAWA The chairman of the government's newly-formed advisory coun- cil on the status of women is bracing herself for complaints from militants who might feel the group is not pushing enough to improve the posi- tion of Canadian women. But such Katie Cooke said in an will be balanced by those who think the 28-member council and its 53-year-old chairman are much too radical. council will not be able to change things as fast as some of our more militant women's libbers might like. But to some of the more tra- we will seem to be going too The government sociologist seems to be looking forward to getting caught in just such a crossfire. The worst thing that could happen to the new- born she is for it to fade entirely from the public's view and concern. 'ATTACK FIRST' a real chance for change here. But we have to sort out what we want to at- tack first. If 28 people try to take council's first annual tackle all the problems of the Canadian woman at we'd be The women and two for the first time in Ottawa July 10 and 11. It decided to concentrate on amendments to the Canada Labor Code covering dis- crimination on the grounds of age and marital and amendments to the Pub- lic Service Superannuation Act to improve pension and insurance plans for women. Other priorities included es- tablishment of a human rights inclusion of house- wives in the Canada Pension Plan and changes in the Di- vorce Act. Members also ex- pressed concern that not enough women are being ap- pointed to senior positions on government commis- sions and Crown corporations.

She also expressed hope the press will keep the issues the council studies alive in the public mind. a marked change in attitudes towards women's rights in the last 20 years. In general the country's more educated and the more educated the population the less they're going to tolerate statistically are a majority and yet much of our law and customs have put them in the role of a minor- ity. I like to think we're more enlightened than we were 20 years ago. Sometimes I wonder. many respects the situ- ation of women in the U.S. is perhaps less dignified than it is in Canada. The whole em- phasis on z Playboy image of what women are like just doesn't appeal to me. Canada is not to say does not have that any problems in its attitudes to- wards women. But somehow there seems to be less identi- fication of women as just a sexual object There doesn't seem to be the same derogatory the way I see it at least. in general give me the impression of having more respect for others.
