Dear Ann Landers: Every once in a while you return a column because someone asks for it. I am not only asking but pleading. It was the column on "How To Break Up A Marriage." It was one of your best and I need it NOW. Cliff-Hanger Dear Cliff: Here it is, with my compliments: (1) When a son or daughter lets you know they plan to be married, show open hostility to the person of his or her choice. After all, marriage means-less love and attention for parents and they have a right to resent it. (2) Expect your married children to spend every Sun- day and holiday at your home. Act hurt if they have other plans. (3) If your married children have problems with their mates, encourage them to come home, no matter what. Listen attentively to all their complaints. Point out additional faults which may have gone unobserved! Remember, a drop of water at a time can wear away a rock if you keep at it long enough. (4) If your married children are having financial problems, rush in with the chequebook. If you are having financial problems yourself, borrow, if necessary, in order- to help them, but let them know they will never have to do without anything so long as you are around. (5) If a married child has a drinking problem, keep telling him his mate drove him to it. It will make him feel better. Everyone needs someone to blame. (6) If your married child gets an opportunity for ad- vancement which takes him to another city, tell him family is more important than money and if he leaves, God will punish him for not obeying the "Honor thy. father and thy mother." (7) If there are grandchildren, smother them with gifts. If the parents ob- ject, tell them to keep out of it. After all, grandchildren are to spoil. Sneak money to the kids secretly if you have to. They'll love you for it. (8) Whenever your married son and daughter visit with their children, make a point of how thin and tired the kids look. Get across the message that you don't have a very high opinion of the Way your beloved grandchildren are being cared for. In- timate that the mother's neglect is detrimental to the health of the youngsters. Ask repeatedly what they eat and why it is that they have so many colds. If the kid breaks a tooth or is injured during play, get all the details and place the blame on lack of supervision, (9) If your son has a button off his shirt or if his shirt isn't ironed as well as you used to do it when he lived at home, say something. Also mention the hole in his sock or the spot on his coat. It could fan the flame of self-pity and start the final fight that will end up in the divorce court. WINNIPEG (CP) Women must bargain collectively to improve their lot in the work force but many unions have not met this task, Labor Organizer Madeleine Parent of Brantford, Ont., said this week. Ms. Parent, secretary treasurer of the Canadian Textile and Chemical Union, said-women must apply solid organizational tactics if they are to achieve equality with men and job oppor- tunity. "A large number of the un- ions in this country and the more weighty trade union bureaucrats have given lip service to these principles, but they have not really fought in their interests. "Women themselves are go- ing to have to do the job, by. taking the initiative in organizing, the kind of union which they as women workers feel is best suited to protect their interests, and the interests of their fellow workers." Ms. Parent, one of the par- ticipants in a three day 'conference at the University of Manitoba on women and the law, told a news conference she was not advocating women only unions. "You have to have a union which takes the whole group of workers concerned. But women themselves must take the initiative in making the decision as to what kind of un- ion is appropriate. They have to take the lead in searching out the injustices in their own conditions and in preparing a program of demands." The meeting is a follow up to a first national gathering last year in Windsor, Ont., and the estimated 400 delegates plan to focus on legal aspects of women's rights in work, home and society. Supporters hope it will lead to formation of a national committee on women and the law. Dr. Lynn McDonald, a Toronto sociologist, told the. news conference current legislation on equal pay for men and women doing the same jobs does not meet the problem. She said in Canada, women working full time earn on average 60 per cent of what full time male workers earn. "The existing legislation is geared to jobs of the same type that a man is doing. This means that a woman has, on paper, the right to complain, if she is in an enterprise and in the same department as a man who is doing the same job. "Of course, we all know many women are not in this situation. They are in an es- tablishment in which women do only one job and men do a different job. The legislation in no province covers this." Dr. McDonald said there should be an objective evalua- tion of jobs, to determine fair remuneration, a proposal ad- vanced by the Royal Commis- sion on the Status of Women and various labor groups. "There would be a system of job evaluation to ensure that objective criteria are used. Our recommendation is that the same criteria that are used to evaluate men's jobs be applied to evaluate women's jobs." Sylva Gelber, women's bureau director of the federal department of labor, said strong law is needed to prohibit discrimination in any branch of employment. Pre- sent differentials in pay between women and men left much to be desired. She cited 1971 Canadian cen- sus figures showing men chefs and cooks earned 54.7 per cent more than women chefs and cooks. Among physicians and surgeons, males had nearly a 100 per cent edge. Miss Gelber noted that only one woman in five in the Cana- dian labor force is a member of a trade union. Ms. Parent, an executive board member of the Conference of Canadian Unions, said women must get on union bargaining com- mittees, so they can debate directly with employers about workers' demands. She said department stores and other large employers hire women part time "as a reserve force of deny- ing them many of the benefits that full-time workers get. "At the same time the com- panies use them against their own fellow workers, because they don't have a full commit- ment to earning a living in the work force. "But these problems will have to be resolved, and if women get out and take more initiative in organization, we will find the.forms that will overcome these obstacles.
