The 12th Congress, second to be held in Canada, .will be attended by nearly 2,000 members to consider the theme, "The Significant 70's". The organization is non-partisan, non-secretarian. Members coming from Australia to Zanv bde represent divergent political, social and economic traditions but the common goal is to attain a status of women commission in each member nation. Canada's recently published recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women will hold interest for visiting delegations, In its infancy the 41-year-old IFBPW assisted in a survey on the economic, political and By PAT OSHIRO Kate Andrews High School TOURING the past year or so, , you have been hearing a great deal about the Women's Liberation Movement. Whenever you open a newspaper or magazine, you are quite likely to find one or more articles giving tribute to the ever growing number of heroines of W.L.M.: "Mary B. has just been made a full-fledged member of the Blacksmiths of America Inc.," or "Jane B. becomes first woman to join construction crew for new highway." These are some pretty extreme examples but they do indicate the growing trend towards feminism. Feminism is based on the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes. I do agree with one of the Movement's aims: to remove restrictions that discriminate against women; however, I do think that these women who are even willing to take their arguments concerning their rights to be railroad engineers or the like, are going beyond the point of women's liberation. Really there never can be any true equality in all things between men and women. For one thing, we are not physically capable (barring all those women who weigh 200 pounds and have muscles of steel) of performing all the jobs that men can do, and woman that sets out to prove I-----* - just the opposite to this, Is quite likely to find herself in trouble. The male species who have always been referred to (and most of the time, quite wrongly) as the superior sex, can become quite stubborn and quite belligerent when the physical capabilities of their masculinity are threatened. Besides, bullying one's way into an occupation which was wholly masculine - especially when the men are violently agai such a move - will accomplish very little. I think that it is first necessary to change their ways of thinking before any real action can be taken. I also believe that women, too, must change their ways of thinking concerning women's liberation. They must realize that the only type of equality which really counts between men and women, and which will lead to further equalization in other areas the equality between minds - between thoughts and ideas masculine or feminine. If this can be accomplished, then women will truly be liberated, Until that time, girls, I gu we just continue to let the boys hold the doors open for us and do other sundry little tilings, so they'll feel important! (The views voiced la tha above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflection of the student opinion.) TOP TWELVE urged on the League "constructive action - with a view to improving the status of women in many countries where inequalities still exist". Today, the International Federation is one of the non-government organizations to hold consultative status with the United Nations. President of the IFBPW is Australian journalist, Miss Patience Thorns, President of the 6,000 members in the Canadian Federation is Miss Charlotte VanDine, Montreal, assistant secretary to the Canadian International Paper Company. While both presidents have noted similar goals with the Women's Liberation Movement, both have affirmed a position of presenting well-documented briefs to various levels of government. Organized in 1930 in Geneva, Switzerland - but of U.S. par- entage - The International Federation's first dramatic thrust for women's rights was a resolution asking equal pay for equal work passed at the silver jubilee meeting in Berne. This was 15 years ago. Canada's federation is among those still striving to move the act from the statute books into all offices of government, busi-nses and industry.

She stated Thursday, that due to the increased rental charges, and overhead incurred by the shop the YW will no longer be able to offer a commission on goods sold by the shop. Mrs. Fairfield pointed out that this is the only regular money - raising project that the YW is engaged in at present. Donations of clothing and small household items are still being accepted, however.

That's why, five days a week from 9 to 10 a.m. and sometimes longer, she takes ballet lessons. That's also why she's preident of the Ballet Society of Los Angeles. On weekdays, right after breakfast, the actress wife of actor Paul Newman can be found with other middle-aged women and actresses scurrying in maxi coats into the David Lichene School of Ballet in Beverly Hills. "It's agony," says Joanne. "Sometimes every muscle strains and hurts. But I do it because I love doing it. Everything else is extraneous. I love the ballet. I love dancing more than I like acting. I would love to have been a dancer." Her strenuous exercises have gone on for six years. She began them after analysing herself. "I had just had my third baby," she told an interviewer, "I was 35, fat and flabby. I said to myself, 'I am not going to become a middle-age slunk, and I am not ready to become character actress." + COMING EVENTS + JANUARY 2lit - Don't Mitt Thitll PRAGUE THEATRE ON THE BALUSTRADE Starring Ladiilav Fialka and cast.

The founders sought communication, cooperation and promoted service within each community. IFBPW founder emphasized political rights, Norway's federation president advising "it is not only a good thing, but only tlirough politics can women do their duty as citizens". By pooling the interests of women organizations, Sweden promptly reported doubling the number of women in parliament. That was in 1937 and Sweden continues well to the fore in feminist reforms. The national federation recently went on record opposing tax concessions to any husband whose wife stays at home when she is "fit to work". Current concern is single person's problem's, discrimination as to taxation, housing and way of living. In Switzerland, where some cantons oppose the vote for women, the national federation requested a federal committee on the position of women in political, economic and social life. A national referendum regarding franchise will soon be held. Swiss husbands continue to hold property rights. France granted property rights to women in 1965. The Austrian federation received a government questionnaire on women's role in social and economic affairs and the Italian federation studied the country's tax system to recommend reforms.

On this continent, Canada and the United States have both organized talent banks of highly qualified women to be recommended for appointment to policy-making positions. In the U.S., a theme "Era of Responsibility" observed programs on environment, drug control, crime prevention. In Canada, resolutions on tax reforms and pollution control were submitted to the federal government. Looking toward an era of organ transplants, a resolution of the United Kingdom federation was endorsed by the IFBPW's last congress. Medical bodies and governments were urged to establish and conform to specific and accepted definitions of death and to establish a coordinating office to accept donor recipients. CASH BINGO ST.

BASH'S MEN'S CLUB Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Several weeks ago you used Rose Kennedy as an example of great courage. You expressed admiration for "this women of indomitable spirit who refuses to be defeated." I'd like you to know there are thousands of women in this country who have had plenty of tragedy in their lives but who didn't Have a hundred million bucks to help sweeten their sorrow. Money can go a long way to calm the nerves and heal a broken heart. It burns me up the way rich people always get praised for handling adversity. Whoever said money talks knew what he was talking about. -No Kennedy Worshipper DEAR N.: If you believe money can sweeten sorrow you have a great deal to learn about life. The rich mother who loses a child does not suffer less because she has money. Heartache is no inspector of bank accounts. How many mothers, rich OR poor do you know who have lost a daughter, in a plane crash and three sons-one in the uniform of his country and two who were murdered by assassins? And how many 80-year-old women do you know who have the magnificent carriage, the dignity, and the indefatigable energy of Rose Kennedy? In case you have the idea that I am speaking up for a friend you are wrong. I have never met Mrs. Kennedy.
