"We've got the organization pretty well under said Is- abel MacMillan of Edmonton, editor of the federation's inter- Dational magazine, Widening Horizons. "The 12th congress, the sec- ond to be held in Canada, will be attended by about members from 44 she said. "The theme of the meeting is The Significant '70s." The federation, which has about members, is non- partisan and non-sectarian. "But one of our common goals for the 1970s is to attain a status-of-women's commission in each member nation. Can- ada's recently published recom- mendations of our royal com- mission on the status of women will be of special laterest to the visiting delegations." Miss MacMillan said the member nations, from Australia to Zambia, represent divergent political, social and economic traditions, and that conditions affecting 'women vary greatly from country to country. But certain basic tenets re- main, she added. The founders emphasized communication and co-operation and promoted serv- ice, within the community. "They also emphasized politi- cal she said. "As one of our federation presidents has said, 'Only through politics can women do their duty as citizens.' In its early years the 41-year- old federation assisted the League of Nations, forerunner of the United Nations, in a sur- vey on economic, political and civil status of women. Miss MacMillan said. "Today, the-international fed- jration is one of the non-govern- mental organizations to hold consultative status with the United Nations."

Laura Sabia, radio commen- tator and former alderman in St. Catharines, Ont., said in an interview, the new National Ad Hoc Committee on the Status of Women has a double purpose. "We are going to spearhead a drive for the implementation of those recommendations which are aimed at creating a society in which there is equality of op- portunity for she said. "And we are going to urge all national groups and all splin- tered provincial groups to go after the government on their own, to get anything done that they can." Mrs. Sabia, who was presi- dent of the Canadian Federation of University Women hi 1966 when 31 women's organizations met to propose the royal com mission, said the group now is seeking participation from groups including such diverse organizations as Women's Lib eration and the Catholic Women's League. "We.are going to try to imple- ment those recommendations on which we feel we can get a con sensus of all women's she said. "We do not want this repor to lie fallow for the next 10 or 2C years."

We (of the over 25xage group) think that 'youth' must sow wild oats, do crazy things, etc. We sometimes tend to let hem get away with murder lecause of this." Betty Burrell was the featured ipeaker at a public meeting at the Lethbridge YWCA. She is residence director of the Vancouver YWCA, and in her tour of Southern Alberta, was speaking on the topic, "Youth in the dealing mainly with the problems confronting Canadians and the youth of Canada. Miss Burrell classified the 'youth' age group as that of 17 to 25 years of age, and stated that "population increases have gone ahead so quickly that some countries now have any- where from 25 to 50 per cent of their population below the age of 25." Youth today; according to Miss Burrell, are part of the They are part of the luxury society "Parents want to give their children everything that they never had" and have created what might be called a 'youth cult'. She says that the responsibility for the creation o this 'cult' belongs to the over-25 age group. To contrast this, Miss Bur rell spoke about youth in under developed countries. There youth is THE driving force am the idealists of the country. Tin older, generation say that thi system will never change, tha they have to live with it, am that the younger generation wil learn to live with it also, whil the youth say that the system can and will change. In order t accomplish this, they are start ing self-help groups and eve building mud-brick schools be cause the government canno afford to build any more. "Youth today are not dissi Miss Burrell said. "The are not lazy, and want to d nothing. These are only a sma] fraction of the total group." Miss Burrell stated a number of responsibilities that Cana dians "in this relatively devel oped country" have. They have responsibility to "keep the )ark of idealism alive not only n our own country, but in thers; to relate to people as individual persons and not just members at Family Y The Lethbridge Family Y with just over members using the Y's physical facilities. An official of the YMCA said there is a rapid turnover of memberships. For example in the month of December, 146 memberships were renewed while 236 expired.

[n this way, youth will come to understand the other point of view, and the youth's point of view will become clearer to their elders, thus ending much of the alienation between tba age groups. The topic of drugs was also brought up as Miss Burrell stated some examples of youths going on 'bad trips', and having 'scrambled heads' because of cheap, impure drugs. She said, "Society in general has learned to accept and con- sequently help the pregnant girl, and then pat themselves on the back because of their benevolence, but society hasn't yet learned that the drug user is in as much need of help and true understanding as is the pregnant girl." Miss Burrell stressed the point that the curbing of the "generation gap" would come only as a result of mutual un- derstanding on a person to pei> son scale.
