Other items included on the still tentative agenda are elec- tion of officers, budget, guid- ance and counselling in the area of mental health, business affecting the natioha organization.

"There is no place in the city to refer girls who are sick, in trouble or just in need of she said. "I get tired of sending peo- ple to the police for accom- modation. It is easier for me to put them up in my home be- cause most of them are afraid of the police and they just wan- der the streets or fall prey to people who take advantage of them because they are down and out for the moment." She said there is a great number of cases where people have been sleeping in wrecked cars who come to the friend- ship centre for cofiee in the morning. This is one of the many jobs a rehabilitat ion house could provide. Yellow Feet said the main concern now is to find more interested people to ex- pand the committee, either as ictive members or as resource personnel. She said the next step will >e to locate a central body for ;he committee to work with to keep from duplicating services. 'I have heard there is a group in the city trying to form a rehabilitation house for men. "This central body could co- ordinate the efforts of both "roups and control the finan- cial expenditures for both Muses."

The first ob- jective would be to provide the basic needs food, shelter, clothing, and an atmosphere of warmth and understanding or acceptance." She said the committee would endeavor to work in close co- operation with all levels of gov- ernment to provide an incen- tive to these women to become tax payers rather than remain- ing a tax burden. "Length of residency would be governed by individual cir- cumstances and could vary from one week to more than a she said.
