Prepared by the department of health, education and wel- fare, the report accuses the de- partment itself of widespread sexual bias. Among its findings: women make up 63 per cent of the department's work force, they hold only 14 per cent of the top jobs. are more likely to dismiss women's symptoms as neurotic or as normal female problems "sometimes until physical diseases arc beyond treatment." proportion of women among graduate school enrol- ments and candidates receiving degrees was less in 1970 than In 1930. "Based on academic achieve- ment, the women selected for graduate training are on the av- erage more highly qualified than the men." median income of women 65 and over is less than hah" the median income of men in this group, compared with are encouraged or even forced to retire earlier than men, despite the fact they have a longer life expectancy."

The Homemoker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN Color, color, color! Wherever you look there is an explosion of color. People are wearing color combinations which would make fashion designers of yesteryears turn over in their graves. Booms are being decorated in vibrant no longer are there off- white walls, and ceilings, and tunes of brown for carpet, fur- niture and drapes. We are in an age of a kaleidescope of technicolor and at that often under 'black light'. Wearing color Your guide- line is your own coloring and your color tastes. All colors can be used together if they are used in the right propor- tions, in the right values, and in the right intensities to bal- ance each other and be pleas- ing together. Decorating with color The modem way is fewer colors in larger doses. Personal taste is the guiding principle. Color schemes are now subjective. They are replacing anon- ymous, ready-m a d e combina- tions to which so few people could relate. Freedom is the password. Do as you want. But before you do, an understanding of color and il's intensities and values is vital. Random combinations can turn out wrong (and can be an expensive mistake) un- less you understand what you are doing or have a particular flair for use of color. Before doing an expensive re- decorating job (or even a small one) take the time to read and ask questions so you can under- stand what you are doing. Freedom is your right, but it carries the responsibility with it of knowing what you are do- ing. "Live With Color" is a pub- lication available to you from my office. It will help to make he world of color understand- able to you. Use the principles OT satisfaction in your homes decorating, even in planning your wardrobe. EQUAL RIGHTS?

She says the two institutions see women as sex objects for child-bearing. "Religion has put women down over the centuries. All the churches have seen them as vessels to bear children. "The abortion issue crystal- lizes the feminist movement. Abortion until now has been regulated by male-dominated societies like the church and the state but should be the concern of the woman alone. "What I say challenges the church's religious assumptions about women. For many years we've had no control over our own fertility. Now women need no longer have children. Now they have a choice." Dr. Greenglass, who received a Canada Council grant to do research on the psychological effects of abortion on women, is a member of the government commission on the status of women. She says there is an urgent need for a morality of abortion which should consider not only the factor of the destruction of the fetus but the land of life- economic, physical, psychologi- mother can give her child. "Abortion should be a private decision between the or the the doctor."

Britain's most elig- ible bachelors. The Leap Year custom was actually written into the law of Scotland in 1288, with the addi- tion that if the girl had her pro- posal rejected, she could claim a silk gown in compensation. A similar law was passed in medieval France, and the cus- tom was practised widely in Genoa and Florence in the 15th century. For 1972, the William Hickey gossip column of The Daily Express picks six of the best for the notebooks of ambitious girls cm the road to the aisle. Highest ranking in the aris- tocratic scale of prospects is the Earl of Grosvenor, 20-year- old heir to the Duke of minster, whose fabulous fortune includes rich slices of real es- tate in London and British Co- lumbia. Lord Grosvenor, who has re- cently been touring some of the family Interests in Canada and Australia, will come into a glit- tering inheritance when he turns 21 this year. TWO ARE DECORATORS The Hickey short list includes another earl and the heirs to a marquis and a viscount. The Earl of Cottenham, 23-year-old interior decorator, is described as living in a apart- ment in London's aristocratic Belgravia district. Then there is Cottaiham's first cousin, Guy Ncvill, godson of the Queen and in line to the title of Marquis of Abergavenny. NeviU, a handsome 26-year-old, is also in the interior decorat- ing business. Two bachelors of 27 are noted as being in line for vast for- tunes. Bearded Michael Pear- son is the heir to Viscount Cowdray, reputedly one of the richest men in Britain. The Cowdray empire spans London's highly respected Fi- nancial Times and other news- papers, worldwide oil and gas holdings including oil interests in Canada, and a range of bank- ing and finance interests. Pearson is a colorful fixture on the international social cir- cuit with his J625.000 yacht He- donist. Other assets listed by Hickey include million in the bank and the promise of a further Inheritance of 5300 mil- lion Almost as well heeled is Alan Clore, heir to merchandis- ing multi millionaire Charles Clore. The Express says he shares a million trust with his sister but might prove somewhat elusive in the mar- riage stakes since he is based in Switzerland and for tax rea- sons can spend only 90 days a year in England.
