Women work 'for less' so hire 'em VANCOUVER (CP) F. G. Peskett. president of the Employers' Council ol British Columbia, said that legislation to ensure equal payment for women would not necessarily solve the problem ol unequal wages. Reacting to a of the royal commission on :he status of women that: a federal-provincial conference Ire neld to prepare for ratification of the international labor convention eoncen -ing equal remuneration for men and women, lie said: "That's the trouble with big fat reports. They always suggest some legislation as a panacea for alleviating problems that are really physiological. "Traditionally, one of the prime motivations for hiring women was the fact that they would work for less. Legislation won't cure this attitude and one of the dangers it may present is that if faced with a choice of hiring A or B at the same salary, an employer will choose the one with the fewer problems.

It must have a straight trunk I or yau won't be able to stand it anvwbere. Jack Mclnally says Christ- inas trees have four faces, and on the best trees all four are full and with no "holes" where branches are sparse. Ann :K Landers DEAR ANN1 LANDERS: Am 1 square'.' Am 1 hopelessly out of date" I an antediluvian creep? If 1 please tell me. Here's the situation: I walked into a drug store mth my 14-year-old daughter and there on the counter, plain as da'v was a display of birth control devices. I pretended not to 'see it but my "daughter was not letting me off so easily. She fairly shrieked, "Look at that wild advertisement- and pointed to a pasteboard reproduction of a magazine ad which 1 had seen before. It read, "ninety per cent of all people are caused by accidents." Please tell me. Ami Landers, what do you think of that ad" What do you think of a drag store that would feature such a display? What do you think of this degree of frank- ness? Sign me Fuddy Duddy Dad In Oakland DEAR FUD: (1) The ad. I believe is overstating the case, but there is more than a germ of truth hi the allegation. (2) In my opinion such a display is offensive to a large number of people and is in extremely poor taste. (3) The trend is toward frankness, and may be healthy according to .some behavioral experts, but this is too frank for me. If this labels me a square who is hopelessly out of date, move over and make room for one more. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was interested in the letter from the woman who disliked having guests corne into her kitchen and "help" her. Several years ago I clipped a wonder- fully little poem out of the newspaper. This poem should be tacked on the kitchen cupboard of even- woman who has the problem. When an unwanted guest barges in, the irate hostess need not. say a word if she just points to the poem it will do tlie job. Here is the poem but 1 can't tell you where it came from. Please stay away from my kitchen, From my dishwashing, cooking and such. You were kind to have offered to help me And I do want to tahnk you so much. 1 hope you won't think me ungracious When I ask that you leave me alone, For icy kitchen is not very spacious And my system is strictly my own. So please stay out of my kitchen; It may well prevent a few7 wars. And when I am hinted to your house, I promise to stay out of yours. A Friend DEAR FRIEND: Thanks for writing. 1 can tell you where Uie poem came frum my column. It's worth repeating, however, and I'm glad you sent it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Three months ago 1 bet a friend S20 I could get a phony letter printed in your column. I wrote ten letters and Uiey were all pretty darned good. The deadline passed yesterday. 1 lost my :20. You didn't print a single one of my masterpieces. How do you tell? Skunked DEAR SKUNKED: Phony letters, like phony people, have an insincere quality hard to describe, but fairly obvious if you know what to look for, Then, of course, a New Haven postmark is often a tipoff that the Yalees are at it again. Of course I get fooled now and then, but not very often anymore. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've read several letters in your column from women who are miserable because their hus- bands snore. Please let me tell my story. n helP Uiem' For years I was annoyed because my husband snored. At times I got so mad I jabbed him with an elbow or nudged him in the back with a knee. One night I was awakened suddenly by a crash of thunder. It was so quiet in the house you could have heard a pin drop. My husband was still and 'silent. Not only was there no snoring there was no breathing. 1 was frightened out of my wits. A thousand thoughts rushed through my mind, i was sure lie had a heart attack and died. Just as I reached over to touch him lie took a deep breath and started to snore again. Ever since that night I have ceased to be irritated by Ills snoring. In i'act, it's music to my ears. Huntingdon, Pa. DEAR HUN: What a sweet story. Thanks for sharing! V DEAR ANN LANDERS: What's wrong with telephoning a boy. My mother thinks it is terrible. The guy I go with is a freshman at Northwestern University. He enjoys a nap in the afternoon after lu's 2 p.m. class. He has asked me to phone him every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at to wake him up. My mother says it. is not nice for .girls to call boys. I think she's living in another century. What do you think? Ding-A-Ling DEAR DING: I think you ought, to buy your boyfriend an alarm clock for Christmas. V.'lK-n ynu ljuy your tree, he says, yirj should insist on hav- ing a lu.k at it so that vou can judiie its faces and see how straight the stem is "Tlim> is nothing more rig- gravaiirm than getting a tree that won't stand up. People should Ix1 selective when they buy many of them will buy it as long as it looks like a Christmas tree." Mr. Mclnally is associate director of the inspection branch o: the Ontario depart- ment of agriculture. One of his branch's jobs is to inspect tree plantations when the ask them to. Ontario has tree- grades, though Mr. Mclnally says they are not in general use. A grower that does want to use them to mar- ket his trees asks for a pro- vincial inspector to have his grading verified Fancy Identification MIAMI. Fla. iAP) The la- dies are finding new ways to identify their luggage in a hurry. Among the marked lug- gage that passes through the Miami International Airport are bags with red satin bows tied to handles, bunched purple yarn, pink roses, painted on signs and far-out emblems. The check sheet an insiw- tor uses makes a good miidc for anyone who wants K> buy an attractive Christmas Premium trees muss be fresh, and have the chariicter- istics of their type. They must be clean and free of foreign material such as vines. They must have a butt (from cut to lowest brunt-lies'' abyut six inches long to fit easily into most Ghnsunas tree holders and stand stead- ily. Mr. Mclnally says you should cut off about half an inch of the butt when you get the tree home so it can absorb water more easily. You should store and a Christmas tree in water. Inspectors look at the dens- ity of a tree's branches. Voi; should not be able to see straight through a tree. Nowa- days. Mr. Mclnally says, most tree growers prune their trees as they grow to encourage them to thicken, as well as to shape them. A grower who wants to grade his trees marks 'he ones he intends to market, and the inspectors try to look at at least 10 per cent of the trees. They look for gaps between branches, unduly long branches, uneven density hi any face, weak or broken branches. They look for a curved stem and for multiple stems above the top whorl or layer of branches. They look for a crow's nest, a little cluster at the top of the tree, and for a gooseneck, or exlra-long leader or stem at the top without needles on it. Christmas trees are picked out and tagged during August and September and cut in October, As the demand builds in the last few days be- fore Christmas, an increasing of culls find tlieir way to the Christmas tree lots, Mr. Mclnally says. He advises buying your tree as laie as possible to ensure its freshness, but early enough to get a well-shaped tree. Feel it to be sure it is fresh. Store it outdoors if you can, in water, and when you take it indoors, use a stand that holds water. Keep water in the stand all the time the tree is up, and don't forget to make the fresh cut at the butt. Because evergreens are highly inflammable and bum i fiercely, keep your tree away from the fireplace, from ra- I diators or vour television set. RUN FOIt COUNCIL i SANTIAGO.
