On the average, the price of Christmas trees is up almost 20 per cent from last year. Women farmers accuse Canada Manpower of bias SASKATOON (CP) A group of women farmers this week accused the Saskatoon office of Canada Manpower of discrimination in alloting adult training allowances. The eight women, par- ticipants in a manpower- sponsored farm management training course in Beechy, Sask., said that as married women they got a smaller R North Lethbridge Phone 328-4441 Westminster Shopping Plaza I Shopmate V Electric Drill 25 amps 1000 rpm Double insulated modular construction Model No 2420 Pre Christmas Price........

Iris Fluterud, who operates a mixed farm with her hus- band near Beechy, is getting the single-status allowance of a week to take the four- week course. If her husband took the same course, she said he would be entitled to the married allowance, which would allow him to claim his wife and their two children as dependents. "As far as I am concerned whichever one takes the course they should be paid the same Mrs. Fluterud said in an interview. In a farming situation, she said, the women contribute to the operation as much as the men and all decisions are made together. Donna Stockman, also enrolled in the course, said the discriminatory allowance structure discourages women from learning more about farm management. There is also the possibility a woman could be left to operate a farm on her own, she said, and she should not be discouraged from taking ad- vantage of the course. Keith Vick, acting man- power manager, denied any form of discrimination. He said the allowance depends on proof of need of in- come replacement. He said if either spouse can verify they take full respon- sibility for family support the allowance payments will be made accordingly. He said the allowances are based on need and are not meant to act as incentives but as income replacement during retraining. not being able to leave the airport until bis plane takes off.

Christmas crafts for all ages will be offered Saturday at 11 a.m. and carols, Sun- day at 3 p.m. Films in the theatre gallery are slated for Dec. 19, 20, 21 and 23 at p.m. The only criteria are that children attending be non-disruptive and that parents remain in the library throughout their stay. Concurrent programs are offered for adults. A look-see at the YWCA to determine what additional fur- nishings are needed will be taken by Marjorie Fleming, chairman of the Quota Club's community services committee. Members, who have already furnished a dorm room, are con- sidering providing further furnishings. Blanche Wilks, ways and means chairman, convened the draw for the Christmas tablecloth with Marie Louise Loescher heading the ticket sales. Members offer annual awards such as the Agnes Stafford memorial bursary and the Annie Cull memorial music scholarship presented at each Kiwanis Musical Festival. Helen Robins is president. The "Fluorescent featuring flying plastic bats, il- luminated by a black light and swaying to Hawaiian music, will be one of the colorful numbers presented by the Dorothy Gooder School students at their annual concert, Dec. 19. Karen Gregus will co-ordinate the show, assisted by fellow teachers as well as volunteer mothers, Marjorie Boulton, Mary Graham, Lafern Roberts, Mary Evernden, Frances Bertie and Alma Davies. Bill Oleksy, principal, will be in charge. Brian Posterski, 24, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Posterski, 1026 Henderson Lake Blvd. has completed his chartered accountant's training in Vancouver. He earned his B. Comm. at the U of A in 1972. Captain Ron Butcher of the Salvation Army reports there are more requests for hampers this year than ever before, in- dicating that proceeds from the strategically placed three kelles will be needed if families' requirements are to be met. He says the Salvation Army is a Christmas Bureau taking names of needy families from individuals, service clubs, the Legion and churches. Fingerprinting is being used to identify early abnormal heart conditions and mental disorders said Cpl. Doug Johnston of the RCMP in a recent address to The Association for Parents of Twins. He has asked permission of mothers to use their twins' fingerprints to help advance his studies. Grand matriarch Lillie Root Bly of Claresholm, with 14 children, 29 grandchildren, five great grandchildren and 14 great great grandchildren, who has seldom missed a social credit convention since 1957, marked her 94th birthday on the weekend at the Lomond Community Hall. Blind Elsie Legacy, the city's ecumenical baker, has been busy turning out hot apple pies for both the LDS bake sale and the Salvation Army tea. Fred Cartwright, director of pupil personnel services, reports two wheelchairs, purchased with funds from the Lethbridge Foundation, will be available to handicapped students attending school. A pilot project underway last week, in co operation with the department of health and social development, the provincial health services and the school district, will assist students with behavioral disorders in Grades 4, 5, 6 and 7. Operated on a one- to-one pupil basis at General Stewart school (the only one of its kind in the province) it is designed to help socially maladjusted children at home rather than having them attend a residential treatment school. Required in the experiment are a part-time teacher, psychologist, pediatrician, psychiatrist and social worker. An attempt is also being made in the early childhood program for children with learning and living problems to iden- tify developmental lags, balance problems, problems in run- ning, holding onto pencils and even difficulty in motor development. Seventeen students are in the program. Memorial Society members are pushing tor legislation un- der the Human Tissue Gift Act to give individuals the right to pre-plan the disposal of their own remains, instead of leaving this important decision to the next of kin. Such information could be carried on a card in a wallet, similar to that carried by kidney donors, according to Harrold Shaw, secretary of the 300- member Memorial Society of Southern Alberta. Ingeborg Tope is president. 14 i Corning Ware Twin Set MS Set consists 32 02 covered sauce pan and 48 oz 5 covered sauce pan Open stock value 99. i Pre Christmas Price SET 6 Regina Vacuum Cleaner Model V455 Has metal canister in tear drop design Internal cord storage Powerful cyclonic suction Long suction hose complete with all rug and cleaning tools Pre Christmas Price........

But Mrs. MacDonald has been in the business for 26 years and her experience has given her a certain serenity. "But I think what's happening to the economy may be very good for she said in an interview. "It'll act as a dose of salts, and goodness knows we can use it after all our over-in- dulgence of the past few years. "We've all been living far too high on the hog, and we weren't worrying about having to pay for it. It was all on credit. It was a party, the biggest, longest international party in history. And it was bound to end sometime." She thinks the world economic picture may improve but meanwhile "we've got to get back to the simple things."
