The gym, swim and craft classes' are held Wednesdays and Fridays from to a.m., and incorporate fun with learning. Enrolment in the program has been good, according to Sherry! DeCoste, program secretary and instruc- tor. Approximately 10 to 12 youngsters are registered in the morning programs. Gym time is spent with the children climbing ladders, bouncing on tram- polines, balancing on walking beams and learning to handle new, interesting shapes. Limb co-ordination, dexterity and movement are all part of the program which has tots from 10 months to five years in age. Swim classes take place in the Y pool, with qualified instructors teaching swimming basics. Mothers of the younger children are allowed to enter the water as well, in order to keep the children relaxed. Crafts include the making of masks, cardboard caterpillars, clay pictures, pompom men and the like. Three-year-old Tamrny Tomomitsu balances on ladder Preschooler gym class at Family YMCA in action Segregated pay scale 'getting worse' TORONTO (CP) New information indicates there is a greater percentage of women in the work force than has been estimated. Sylvt Gelber said Thursday. But she said there are also indications that pay differences between men and women, job segregation and lack of opportunity for women are getting worse. Miss Gelber, direr 'of the THE BETTER Women's Bureau in the federal department of labor, was speaking to The rence Board i Conference [in Canada, a non-profit business research organization. Miss Gelber said data from the 1971 census indicate per cent of all working age women are in the labor force. Statistics Canada has been snowing a current rate of less than 87 per cent By Barnes She said for occupations on which average wage figures are available, women continue to be paid at a lower rate than men, and in half those occupations the gap widened between 1M9 and 1972. She said in managerial occupations, where women make up three-tenths of the total, the average earnings of men exceed those of women by 107.4 per cent BIG GAP IN PAY In clerical occupations, in which women make up almost three-quarters of the total, the annual earnings of men eiceed those of women by 96.7 percent In the service industries, which are absorbing much sf the increasing female labor force, women make up three- fifths of the total and raea'i average than twice those of women. Miss Gelber said women are chartered in low-paid occupa- tions. One-third of all working women are in clerical occupa- tions, one-fifth in service and recreational jobs, one-fifth in professional and technical jobs. Miss Gelber said the per- centages and numbers are ris- ing, indicating a trend to in- creasing segregation of women. She said only U per cent of the female labor force is in managerial .and executive occupations. She added that two-fifths of all students receiving bachelors and first professional degrees are women, and one-quarter of students earning masters de- grees are women. She there are still laws tnat have the effect of ois- criminatiag against working women, sucb as those affecting fringe benefits and protective and to talk of the efficient use of manpower resources while continuing to tolerate practices which fly in the face of these principles insofar as one-third of the total labor force is concerned."
