Low income a problem for widoivs TORONTO (CP) - A recent study on survivors' incomes shows widows receive pitifully low amounts of life insurance, J. S. Acheson, president of Dominion Life Assurance Co. of Waterloo, said here. He said the study examined a cross-section of families in which the breadwinner died prior to age 65 and found that, at the onset of widowhood, the average lump sum received by these families from all sources was less than $12,000. Almost one-third of the families had no funds left from life insurance proceeds after paying bills and funeral expenses. Modelling for the teens BILL GROENEN photo Pretty poses are only part of the overall effect aimed for by girls in the Contempra Modelling Agencies course for the Junior Miss.

The course takes place Thursday evenings at the Bowman Art Centre, and is under the auspices of the Allied Arts Council. WHO OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. Former ballerina breeches L LONDON (CP) - Liliana Archibald wanted to be a ballet dancer,, but became a historian. Now she is the first woman ever to become a Lloyd's broker. The slim, grey-haired woman was admitted to Lloyd's-the world-famous London insurance market-in 1970 but it was only this year by decision of the annual general meeting that she was allowed to conduct business in the Underwriting Room. Her early ballet training was cut short by the Second World War, when she was evacuated to the country. By the time peace came heir ballet practice had been too long neglected for her ever to reach professional standards. She had always been interested in history, especially 18th-century Russian history, and decided to specialize In that. Although born in London, Mrs. Archibald is of Russian ancestry. She went to the University of Geneva in 1947 and after her return did some un i v e r s i t y lecturing. She translated into English Peter the Great, by Vasili Klyuchev-sky, and in 1970 the same au- BAKER'S FABRIC CENTRE I"A MEASURE FOR QUALITY BY THE YARD" Specializing in Fabrics, .

To undertake it he formed his own small brokerage firm. After his death Mrs. Archibald spent six months absorbing every bit of information she could about credit insurance, with guidance from an old family friend. After that it was a case of learning by experience. In 1958 she became a director of Credit Consultants Ltd. and in 1970 a director of Adam Brothers. "Today," she said, "I am the insurance consultant to the Corporation of London. I look after all the insurance problems involved in their building contracts. "I like doing this sort of work. Building contracts are apt to be illogical and messy and so it is stimulating to sort them out. At present I am working on the insurance involved in a $480-million project." She is much involved with export insurance and she has worked out new types of contingency policies placed at Lloyd's, for unless a suitable one is available some exports would be too risky to undertake. The amount of export credit insurance done in Britain now is bigger than that of the whole of the rest of Europe put together. TRAINS ASSISTANT Business often takes her away, touring the United States and Europe. Back in her own office, she trains a young woman assistant. "When one is fortunate enough to be the first woman to gain acceptance in what was formerly a men-only profession it is essential to have trained women to follow." she says. "This profession offers a chance to use both intellect and personality and the door is open now. "In future I want it to be possible for women to be told that here indeed is a career in which they can go right to the top. I handpicked my own Oxford University graduate assistant for her fresh, clear, logical mind-and, very important, for her ability to get on well with peopb. She will go far." Mrs. Archibald pays tribute to her male colleagues, both in her own office and at Lloyd's. "Without any pressure, they have done the right thing in the right way," she said.

Just Jude By JUDE TURIC �III J)ESPITE parental fears, most children do make it through the growin^-up years with little trouble. Scrapes, scratches and bruises are par for the course, and vivid memories of the biggest and best usually stay with you for a long time. My adventures started off on a small scale with a wood tick attack early one spring in Nelson, B.C. Fending off ticks in the mountains was an accept-ted part of life, and the day I arrived home scratching my neck we knew I'd been bitten. The cure for woodticks is a quick stab in their rear with a hot needle. However, my little "friend" ignored the jabs and remained lodged at the base of my neck. The only alternative was to call the doc and let him take on the task. With a couple well-placed snips, a yank with the forceps and a yelp from me, the deed was done and the blood-engorged tick was sent down the sink. Next in line of memorable accidents was much more spectacular and involved a friend, a tricycle, a manhole cover and a bully. My friend Driver had a swift trike and rode it round the block day after day at what her mom considered dangerous speed for a four-year-old. But she and I liked to ride double and zoom down the hill, ignoring all warnings of impending doom. That day, we lined up the trike and just as we boarded it for the downhill run, the bully snuck up and gave us an unfriendly shove. Driver found she wasn't as experienced a pilot as she thought and we soon crashed to the walk. She stopped short, but I kept going - off the curb and sideways across a gravelly manhole cover and emerged from the mishap battered, bruised and bloody. General and unspectacular accidents followed through the years till my 10th birthday. Like most kids at that age, I found that school sometimes became a chore and getting there on time a x-eal problem. Not paying attention to where I was going contributed to my downfall one particular day, as I dashed across the street in a rush. I misjudged the height of the opposite curb, slipped, fell and took several layers of skin off one knee. The mop-up was painful; what with tweezers being used to pull out iittle rocks and iodine stinging till I couldn't decide which was worse. For the next couple of days I was hero of the class 'cause I had the biggest bandage and followed it up with the thickest scab. Since then, life has seen fit to spare me big accidents but continues to plague other children in the family. I keep explaining that they, too, will survive as I dab on more iodine, but their wails always seem to drown out my words of wisdom. J)n and out of town The Ladies of the Old Timers' Pemmican Club recently elected a slate of officers for the coming term, with Mrs. Kay Vaselenak named treasurer; and Mrs. Muriel Colby as secretary.
