"Just recently one of our girls happened to be near the scene of a bank said Jeanette Allen, police su- perintendent of the combined constabulary of Nottingham- shire in England. "She saw the police officer getting roughed up by the robber who was six feet, five inches, so she jumped right in. "She was only five feet, four inches and had only been on the force for two years. "Did a jolly good job."

MATERNITY WEAR CENTRE VILLAGE MALL COLLEGE MALL 712 -4th AVENUE S. (Downtown) with the London metropolitan police force, were in Calgary recently while on a cross-Can- ada trip. Women could be used more extensively in police work in Canada, they suggest. Superintendent Allen, who beads a staff of 86 police- women in the city and county of Nottingham, said she has two policewomen on the per- manent drug squad, two on the regional crime squad, two detective sergeants, 12 detec- tive constables, one uni- formed chief inspector, two inspectors, and 10 sergeants. The remainder are uniformed constables. "Women were brought in as matrons to help out at the be- ginning of the Second World she said. "They've been fighting ever since for equality on the police force. "We now get 95 per cent of the pay the men receive and by September we'll be getting equal pay. "They (policewomen) can begin when they're 19 and re- tire between 30 and 35, with a half pension after 25 years of service. They spend three months at a special training school studying basic law, swimming and life-saving, first aid and self-defence. "We require them to pass an education test, but Fd rather have somebody with a lot of common sense than with a string of academic qualifications." Superintendent Allen and Inspector Williams said men rarely assault policewomen, but that women will "have a go at us anytime." "A drunken woman is far worse to deal with than a drunken man, too." English policewomen deal with many situations, they said. "They often have to go into horrible places where the smell is so rank it almost takes your breath away and your feet stick to the floor, it's so Superintendent Allen explained. "And they have to contend with the very depths of sexual offences... "You feel like going home, having a bath and washing your hair afterwards." However, there's com- pensation, too. They're on duty during all the royal cere- monials and premieres and have the best view. English policewomen, like their mate counterparts, do not carry guns. They rely on tact to solve many strained situations. One policewoman "rescued a baby when it was taken up on a roof by its.father, who threatened to jump In- spector Williams said. The of- ficer talked the man out of jumping. "There was a lot of public- ity on the incident and she re- ceived 20 offers of marriage. the grab bag MAUREEN JAMIESON GOME sort of controver- sy, apparently, has been boiling over back East about whether men should wear di- amonds. Why? There's nothing new about this. The first record of man wearing diamonds was in 400 AD. Through the Dark and Mid- dle Ages, men wore jewellery not to gild the lily, but as a good luck talisman, a reliqu- ary for salvation or as a badge of office. It was only in the Renais- sance years that all this changed, and jewels became a show of wealth. Charlemagne wore dia- monds. Napoleon had a fabu- lous 140 carat sparkler set in the hilt of his sword. And good old male chauvinist Henry VHI is reported to have owned 500 buttons set with diamonds, plus a few stray stones set in shoe buc- kles. According to the Diamond Information Centre, dia- monds have entered a new phase the extension of the wearer's personality. Men wear diamonds today because they want to, says the centre. The stones have become part of the display of individ- ual character, to go along with those bolder, brasher suits, wildly printed shirts, and fashion-fur overcoats. So if your favorite feller is fed up with Oie routine spcks-shirt-tie thing; come gift-giving time, why not give him a truly liberated present like a diamond something-or- other? A copy of Recipes for Heal- thier Children, by Edith Red- man, landed on my desk while I was off on a short leave of absence. While my culinary flair oe- pends entirely on meat, veg. and the can opener, those who travel the soyabean- stoneground wheat flour road will, I am sure, find these recipes interesting, easy to follow and varied. The book was obviously written to help combat the inflated cost of foods of doubtful, value, and recipes emphasize better, properly balanced nutrition for all chil- dren from infancy througn the formative years. Watch for a sudden break in the monotony of the navy serge blues down at the bor- der, late this year. Both male and female immigration offi- cers at various Canadian points of entry will sport new ensembles and accessories in turquoise, blue, beige and dark brown solids and plaids. Hostesses will get to mix- and-match-it in red, black and beige. The new styles will include black or brown leather purses only for the gals. Now .that, fellers, is discrimina- tion if ever I heard it Here's a nice and easy rec- ipe to solve your summer en- tertaining problems. It also tastes great in fall, winter and spring.
