Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THt tETHBFtlDGH HERALD Tuesday, Dstembor 8, 1970 I -C lvf u ivma Guaranteed annual income for one-parent families OTTAWA (CP) The royal commission on the status of women recommended a guar- anteed annual income for men and women who are heads of one-parent families. "We recognize in principle the benefits of a guaranteed annual income for all Canadians." the commission says. "As a first step the income should be granted where the need is greatest, that is to sin- gle parents and especially to sole-support mothers who as a group represent a major cate- gory among the nation's poor." Tile commission says a fre- quent objection to the proposal is that it would encourage hus- bands to desert so their families could receive the guaranteed annual income. pnflrirspd a proposal by the On tario law reform commission that family courts take over the job of collecting .and assessing payments from the deserter. The report said that 90 per cent of one-parent fanu'lies are headed by women. More than a third could be described as poor. The commission also ex- pressed concern about the eld- erly poor. ELDERLY LEFT BEHIND "Two often elderly women, single or widowed, are left be- hind in our society. Thousands are living lives of loneliness and deprivation. While not starving, they are undernourished The guaranteed income sup- plement to the old age security benefits should be increased In answer, the commission i until the old person's annual in- crimp vises the nnvprfv level and should be adjusted to the cost-of-living index. The commission said it was surprised to find that about women living alone or )i households where they are not related to the family have an average income below One hi five was between 14 and 25. While many were students who could expect to have a higher income eventually, many were part of the working poor or the transient unemp 1 o y e d and not qualified to e a r n ade- quate salaries. Of particular concern are the young girls who move from rural areas to urban centres. The report recommends a net- work of hostels with counselling on training and job opportuni- ties. Push recommendations says Sabia Women urged to implement status report By THE CANADIAN PRESS Canadian were urged Monday to work hard to prevent the recommeinlations of tho rqyal commission on the status of women from being pigeon- holed. The commission's report, tabled in the Commons earlier in the day, received generally- favorable reaction from leading spokeswomen who at the sarr time described it as only a fii step-toward full equality. Laura Sabia, the woman wl started it all by demanding royal commission in 19CO, sa shejs going to call a meeting women's groups to formula policy to translate the repo into positive results. Mrs. Sabia, a St. Catharine Ont., broadcaster, former aide Close Kingston to ivomen, says royal commission OTTAWA (CP) The royal commission on the status of w omen says imprisonment should be used only to segregate dangerous criminals and sug- ;ests the prison for women at Kingston, Ont., be closed. In its report Monday, the commission said imprisonment of the casual offender should be resorted to "only if other dispo- itions are not appropriate." It says this is particularly rel- vant to women who are gener- lly casual or harmless offend- rs and rarely dangerous or rofessional criminals. The commission says a main oncern is that, however small lie female jail population, ade- quate treatment programs -an services should be organized fo women. Most planning seeme geared to male prisoners an adapted to women. can, in any case, see n reason why women, who are li tie given to violence, should b incarcerated in the maximum security prison at Kingston at time when the trend of penal n form is toward small, open in the commiss i o says. The K i n g s t o n prison houses about 70 women. It is massive stone building witi high walls, the only federal pen itentiary solely for women. Radio 'less disciplined' Jean Pauley comments on social issues By CAROL PASCOE ,'ean Pauley's name came up during a recwit. discussion of possible speakers for a local women's club, about half (he members enthusiastically wel- comed the suggestion. The dissenting half threat- ened to boycott the meeting if she was invited to speak. The controversial Miss Pau- ley, when told of the incident, merely laughed and said: "That's interesting." She is resilient to conflicting points of view after 2Vi years as host of Encounter, a so- cial-issues program on radio station CJAD on alternate Sunday evenings. She is "flooded" with let- ters, 75 per cent of which are favorable. But she doesn't do as well with telephone calls, probably because, as she theo- rizes, "anger drives people to the phone." Jla I A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN DEAH MISS BROOKFIELD: My 42-year-old sister, who has been a career girl all her life, was married six months ago. I didn't like her husband from the start, and thought he was mostly interested in her money. He's showing his true colors now by talking about he behind her back and people mostly her younger girl friends that he didn't marry for love and could use some female companionship right away. My sister has al- ways been pretty smart, but I think this time she forgot to use her head. Should I tell her what everyone else already knows? S. H., New Philadelphia. Ohio DEAR S. H.: Use your own head and don't butt in. It's your sister's prob- lem and she has to face up to it. She made her bed and if it gives her insomnia after a while, it's up to her to correct that condition. It's sad, but true. If things are anything like you say they are, she'll find out soon enough that the matri- monial mattress is lumpy. PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE EtKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS.- 8 p.m. DEAR MISS BROOKFIELD: My first grandchild was born three months ago and he's very handsome. But my law (the baby's mother) keeps stuffing him with food so he's already quite plump. She does this, I believe, because her fam- ily was poor and never bar enough lo eat. I've told her 1 don't think a baby should be- come accustomed to so much food. She keeps telling me to mind my own business. What do you think? N. L., Cranston, R.I. DEAR N.L.: Science is on your side. Dr. Edgar S. Gordon of the Uni- versity of Wisconsin points out that Hie foundations of adult obesity are often laid during in- fancy. Ho declares that over- Feeding a child can result in the development of an ab- normally large number of fatty cells. Studies have shown, he lays, that obese individuals lave more of these fatty cells :han the rest of us. Dr. Gordon therefore asserts that keeping a baby slightly overweight :'may be one of the worst things a mother can do." However, al- .hough science may be on your side, it still is her baby. Why not talk this over with your son? He might be able to do a much better job of convincing his wife than you have. (Have you a problem as a mature woman, or with one? For advice and help, write to Margaret Brookfield, Infor- mation Centre on the Mature Woman, 3 West 57th Street, New York, N.Y. 10019. On Encounter, people knowledgeable in a certain field, such as law, welfare, housing or delinquency, are invited to talk and answer questions from listeners on the air. Jean Pauley Comments, a series of brief opinion seg- ments which are taped in Montreal and broadcast daily over some 20 stations across Canada, draw more response. Often listeners will request transcripts of a certain seg- ment, if they happened to agree with what she said, or will write simply to let her 'n on a relevant personal or fam- ily experience. typical Jean recalled, "was about the way people, especially parents, tend to take too much respon- sibility for people around them, but neglect what I think is their first be to- tally responsible for them- selves. "One woman blasted me to kingdom come for that seg- ment. She said devoting her- self to her husband and chil- dren was a joy and that I must be incredibly selfish, and so on. "Then a man called and said he had listened to me while driving and that he agreed with me completely. He even asked for a tran- script to show his wife." Most of the letters are eventually answered, be- cause there is so little real sharing in our life." "Everything is on such a superficial level that if they didn't hear from me, it would be just too Jean thinks offending some people is probably inevitable in her line of work, "although all I want to do is stimulate them into thinking."

Patience Noecker is a flying doctor, which means she flies and she's a doctor, but not ne- cessarily at t h e same time. As a general practitioner, she has what she says is a huge prac- .ice in Palatine, fast- est-growing area in the United i as a pilot she flies for fun. "I'm going to get my licence lo fly float planes says Dr. Noecker, who recently at- tended the annual meeting of Ihe Flying Physicians Associa- lion here. "I've been interested in fly- ing ever since the day Lind- bergh flew over. I lived in San Diego and they let us out of school to see him fly over on his way to Paris." "I don't believe in the cult of the expert. If you're an ex- pert, then people expect you to talk about that one thing and clam up about everything else. "I believe in professional- ism, but I say: Consult with experts, then filter what they say and make up your own mind. "I don't give word I hate. But I do give my opinions, tell people what I think, in the hope it will trig- ger a response in them." Typical issues which absorb her attention are prison condi- tions and rehabilitation of con- victs, citizens' coiium'tlees, family relationships, illegiti- macy, consumer protection, values and religion. Although she hasn't a string of degrees after her name to qualify her as an Miss Pauley does have an un- usual background and inter- ests which make her opinions credible. She became interested in volunteer social work at the age of ]8, probably, she now says, because of a deep in- volvement with religion, and found "the more I was ex- posed to poverty and depriva- tion, the more I took to this as a not really a hobby but mord of a concern." "I was young, idealistic and I wanted to help." She began by leaching Sun- day school classes and organ- izing meetings for mothers from low-income families. Today she recalls that "it was also a heck of a good baby- sitting service." From there Jean went on to night classes in history, psy- chology and philosophy, and a job as probation officer at ju- venile court. Five years later and after a brief stint at a welfare agency, she inarched into CJAD and convinced the sta- tion manager to hire her. "It was really very she said. "It was a resurg- ence of an old passion to write, but since I'm very un- disciplined, I turned to broad- casting instead. Radio is less put it kindly. "Besides, I had a terrible urge to see ttie mass media do more on social issues." She said she still makes "little and hates "about 50 per cent of the Comments after I tape and mail them." but "I don't have a conversation or read a book or a magazine article without thinking how I can use it on my program." "The show keeps me stimu- lated."

A housing committee which was to have been formed to try and keep the house open until summer when it could be again used as a transient hos- lel, never got off the ground. Cliff local businessman said that although be and Terry Bland had agreed to pay the last two-month's utilities on the house, it was now up to the students in the house to carry on. Madeliene Soderslrom, owner of the house, said during a tele- phone interview to The Herald that she had been paid rent until Dec. 15 but had not been informed as to what would fol- low. She said someone had said Hie University of Lethbridge could be interested for student housing. I woman, candidate for Parlia- ment, wife and mother of four, adopted a pessimistic tone, bill still indicated readiness lo get out and push the commission recommendat ions. DEPLORES DELAY "I hope we get our money's worth, our worth, but as far as I'm concerned, the women's lib has way outs- tripped us. Three years have gone by, and I think the whole report is too late. "Besides I've never yet seen that the government acted on a royal commission report. Women still really have to do what's necessary to put it over. If we drop it even for two months, we've had it." Mrs. S'abia says she approves of the commission's stand on abortion, as outlined in its re- port. "I don't think it should be in the Criminal Code at all; we're only catering to the Roman Catholics, and I'm one myself, so I can say so. "Religious hangups should not stop us from looking at. this Abortion isn't any Business of the state at all. Leg- islation has made up women's minds for them for too long. Women should be free to make up their own minds." LOOKS FORWARD Cecilia Wallace, head of the Canadian section of the multi- national St. Joan's Internationa] Alliance, said she regards the report as a step forward but "1 wouldn't want it to end there. "There are many other areas hat ought to be looked he said, "particularly the lot of he single woman." "The report says nothing ibout single women; that single vomen are paying taxes to sup- lort services that are no good o them there is no consid- "ration given to a single woman vho must pay for an apartment on her salary. She is expected to slay in a room." Margaret Ashdown, past pres- ident of the Federation of Busi- ness and Professional Women's Clubs, said: "I think this is an excellent report what I hope now of course is that it will not be al- lowed to grow dusty on shelves but will be reflected in immedi- ate action." She said if the work of the federation over the last 40 years needed any justification, "the report of the royal commission would provide that justification. In Halifax, Mrs. Muriel Duck- worth, president of the Cana- dian Voice of Women, said the question of abortion was one for the women herself and not the Criminal Code. Abortion procedures should also be speeded up, she said. "If you have to wait 10 months for an abortion it's not very use- ful." Mrs. Duckworth said her or- ganization's position was that "women are human male edition. Women belong fully to humankind."
