Discrimination Against Widoivs Says Society EDMONTON (CP) Dis- crimination against widowed, separated and divorced women must be eliminated, the Monica Society of Edmonton told the Senate committee on poverty here. The society, representing 350 women who ma fatherless households, said in a brief that some oil companies and depart- ment stores have policies not to grant credit to separated wo- men and don't even investigate their credit ratings. "Landlords reject us as un- tenants, we are inse- cure credit risks and we don't have any stabiltiy. Social assis- tance recipients are subject to discrimination when purchasing school supplies by being requir- ed to line up in depart m e n t stores in a special line marked 'welfare.1 The brief also said that chil- dren from "broken homes" are rejected by other families. "Society must be made aware of the individual and a sincere Christian acceptance must be .extended by the community, the agencies and the governing bo- dies." The Monica Society recom- mended that the committee study methods of reducing the burden of property and income taxes on women raising fam- ilies without husbands. It also recommended that a family court be established as a division of the Supreme Court of. Alberta to have jurisdiction over all aspects of family law. 'Body Talk' Conveys Messages Your Move Sweetheart, Til Just Watch NICE SNACK Celery stuffed with cream cheese or peanut butter makes a delightful snack. By LEE MUELLER NBA Of all the fantastic fog shapes that have risen off the swamplands of human rela- tions scholarship recently, prob- ably the most captivating is ;his new thing (gesture, mo- tion) they call body talk. Body talk. Take your phreno- ngy and palmistry and ophthal- mology and go play with them. This is plain language a man can understand. Nearly everyone is ac quainted with the traditiona jestures we use to convey mes ;ages. We rub our noses for inzzlement. Shrug our shoul lers for indifference. Wink for ntimacy. Tap our fingers for impatience. This, however, is obvious ;tuff. Now some social scien ists are developing what they all kinesics the study ol ommunication through body motion. In New York and elsewhere, ae newest groovy parties these 'ays are silent. Invitations re- uest that guests leave their oices at home and come pre- ared to communicate with xxiy language. According to a new book by ulius Fast entitled "Body kinesics is a study of ic mixture of all body move- ments from the very deliberate to the completely unconscious an intricate undertaking be- cause, he says, the body (ex- cluding the tongue) never lies. "Clinical studies have reveal- ed the extent to which body language can contradict verbal he says. "A classic example is a woman who told her psychiatrist that she loved her boyfriend very much while shaking her head I from side to side in a subcon- 'scious denial." In the past few years, hun- dreds of researchers across the country have become convinced that what people do with their bodies communicates as impor- tantly as the words they use. According to one kinesieist, Dr. Ray Birdwhistell, most of the time our words express only 30-35 per cent of our meaning when we speak. The body says the rest. Man's courting behavior, for example, is not unlike that ol a chicken. He has been ob- served preening outrageously (straightening or toying with his tie, smoothing his hair, touching his face) when in the company of a female he ad- mires. The woman, on the other hand, usually counters by either telling him to forget it (crossing LETHBRIDGE FISH GAME ASSN.

College Course Studies Women And Their Role In Society PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) College men have been study- ing women for years, but at Princeton University they do it for credit. It's all in a course called The Role of Women in Moderniza- tion, which delves into the na- ture of femininity and the role of women in society. "Masculinity and femininity are symbolic categories as well as said Dr. Kathryn Boals, who taught the course this spring. "We tried to exam- ine the costs to men on a psy- chic level of having to be tough and assertive all the time." The idea for the course came from two students, Ann L. Wei- denbacher, a senior from Den- ver, Colo., and Edward G. Ber- enson, Levittown, Pa. Sixteen men and eight women took the course. "That's pretty good when you consider the ratio of men to women at Princeton is Dr. Boals said. The course included studies of child care centres, alternatives to marriage, communal living and work hours set up so hus- bands and wives could both work and s h a f housekeeping tasks. [her arms and-or legs tightly) or encouraging him. The greatest encouragement a man can receive, accordin; to some kinesicists, is for i woman to show him the palm of her hand. "From says one ex- pert, "you could perhaps de- rive a cheap rule: Whenever a woman shows you her palm, she's courting you whether she knows it or not." (I am not studied in the art of kinesics. I scarcely know a knuckle when I see one. But I beg to differ with this particu- lar expert. On two occasions that I know of, a woman has shown me her palm and definitely was not courting me. It's called a slap, although since there is a sound involved I'm not sure it can qualify as pure body talk.) According to Fast, the readi- ness to court is visible first of' all- in men and women as a aeightened muscle tone. The in- dividual, holds himself erect; legs have a tighter tone; even he face changes; sagging jow- iness and pouches under the eyes all decrease. Eyes seem >right and skin becomes either flushed or pale. That these symptoms also apply to a person who has in-1 fluenza may be a coincidence although I doubt it.

Led by orthodox monks, these groups are trying to press gov- ernments into scrapping birth control programs. They argue that birth control is not sanc- tioned by any religion and that the use of contraceptives amounts to "planned murder." The campaign has reached its peak in the island state of Cey- lon, off the coast of southern India. Ceylon's health ministry has ordered the suspension of all family planning activities in the country following a threat by Buddhist monks that they would jafalyse all work in the coun- ry "if the family planning mon- ster is not banished immedi- ately." This is g major setback for the Asian birth control move- ment and its possible repercus- iions on other countries, parti- cularly on India and Pakistan, are being watched by anxious amily planning officials. The Buddhists in Ceylon have bean arguing that besides being the use of contra- ceptives will turn the country's iuddhist majority into a minor- ty within the next 20 years. They say that so far only the Juddhists alone have been us- ng contraceptives, while Cey- onese Hindus, Roman Catholics and Moslems have shunned amily planning clinics. Family planning experts say be Buddhists' fears are ground- ess and that the Buddhist ma- ority cannot be undermined .yen in a hundred years. Be- sides, they note that Ceylonese minorities are also adopting contraceptives in increasing numbers. In India, the Jana Sangh, a right whig Hindu party, is also highly critical of the family planning campaign. It says that since Hindus alone use contra- ceptives, they will become a minority before the end of this century." Government officials say this argument is absurd. They say that while the Hindus number more than there are fewer than Moslems. The religious campaign against family planning, has not so far made any significant 'im- pact on Indian public opinion. One factor is that unlike in Cey- lon, religious groups in India lack a centralized organization. Islamic priests also are cam- paigning against birtfa control in Moslem Pakistan but government of President Yahya Khan seems to have the upper1 hand.
