But bogged down on a third, apparently uncontentious, reso- lution recommending that the organizer give top priority to preparing a policy paper on the federal government's royal commission report on the status of women.

This resolution went to three votes a show of hands that was too close to tell, a stand- ing vote which convention chairman Gordon Wright said defeated the motion and a for- mal count which passed the resolution by a margin of 405 to 345. Loud boos and hisses from opponents of the resolution a win large number of trade union- ists among them greeted the announcement of the tally. Yvonne Cocke of New West- minster, B.C., and her husband, B.C. Health Minister Dennis Cocke, both entered the debate in favor of a women's confer- ence. Mrs. Cocke attacked the three "socialist governments" in western Canada for dragging their feet on providing subsi- dized day care. Mr. Cocke had no reply, but .argued against delaying the -women's conference. Women have been put off too long, he said.

Celebrates 100th year of living EDMONTON (CP) Mirian Elston sipped champagne at the party celebrating her 100th birthday Sunday, but didn't like it. Surrounded by relatives and friends, letters of congratula- tion and a huge birthday cake she admitted to only 75 of her 100 years in the sun parlor at St. Joseph's Hospital. Miss Elston came to Edmon- ton in 1910 from Exeter, Ont. and taught home economics and millinery at Edmonton's Tech- nical Institute. Later she es- tablished a miHmery shop but was perhaps better known for her writing. She saw courage and hope in the immigration of Ukrainian settlers to Alberta and recorded what she saw. "Miss Elston's pen has re- corded much of Alberta's story so that one would think she pondered and travelled and in- terviewed up and down the pro- vince every said Ruth Bowen, former womens' editor of the Edmonton Journal. "It isn't a real Miss Elston said when asked what she thought of Edmonton's Klondike Days celebration.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Tm writing about the letter by who was be- wildered and hurt by the man she loved because he seemed to be "two people." One day he was the dearest and most considerate of lovers. The next day, for no apparent rea- son, he was remote and brooding. I would be willing to bet this man is a Pisces, horn around February 20 to March 20. These radical personality changes are characteristic of a Piscean and anyone who has had the misfortune to love someone born under this sign of the zodiac must be willing to understand and ac- cept his unpredictable be- havior or get out of his life. I can tell you from expe- rience that Pisceans are fas- cinating but they are not worth the wear and tear on the nervous You were right when you told her, "Fight it with your hat. Take it and run." Aries in An- chorage DEAR ANC: 'Several peo- ple wrote and offered the same explanation for the man's erratic behavior. Schi- zophrenics behave that way. too. no matter when they were born. Thanks for-, your letter. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I want to say something to the 31-year-old wife and mo- ther of three who is trying to do everything for everybody and ends up "Exhausted." That was me, eight years ago. I could have signed myself Here are my questions for HER: Where are YOU in the list of daily demands? Do you like yourself well enough to save some time and energy for YOU? H you haven't learned to say no, better start prac- tising. Take a little time for yourself every day, and a lot of time now and then. Do what is important to YOU, not the part of you that is a sex ob- ject, a mop-pusher or a nurse for sick kids, n your husband doesn't realize you need time atone, have you tried TELLING him? If be doesn't get it, TELL Mm again. And this goes for your children, too. Love them and enjoy them, but don't let them own yon. Children grow up. Hus-' bands come and go.
