Ms. Madseti, Lethbridge so- ciologist. was one of the 50 Albertan delegates attend- ing a recent conference on opportunities for women, held in Vancouver. Ill a rut Aim of the conference ''was to implement the recommen- dations of the royal commis- sion on women report, par- ticularly as they appertain a special signficance.

Ms. Madsen explain- ed, ''they offer traditional kinds of things like clerical work and nursing. "They don't make any at- tempt to steer women to a skilled trade like machinery, carpentry, etc.. not to men- tion the professions "The problem of getting information to she said, ''was something that really struck me about this conference. We broke up into small groups and discussed on-the-job training, hiring and Manpower training. "Fifty par cent of the pro- blem is women don't know the existing mechanisms. They could get their griev- ances Group action Alberta is far behind other western provinces "in getting legislation changed, making sure cf fair employment practices and seeing non- discrimination is enforced, interest in maternity benefits and child care for according to Ms. Madssn. One significant action emerging from the Vancou- ver conference was the for- mation of a provincial or- ganization, the Options for Women Council of Alberta she said. "We need she em- phasized. ''They have it going in Manitoba. Saskatchewan and Vancouver all quite active. "The most important thing for Alberta is that delegates got the chance to get togeth- er and say let's start a pro- vincial women's organiza- tion." Ms. Madsen was one of the 12 Alberta delegates appoint- ed to a steering committee which represents all parts of the province, from Peace River in the north, to Milk River, where Jessie Snow is the committee member. The steering committee met in Red Deer May 26. -and talked about going back to the women in each of our localities to see what those women wanted." she said. "As far as I'm concerned. that's what a steering com- mittee is a communica- tions link. I'll find out what women are interested in in this district, and I'll relay that to the steering commit- tee. Support needed A local group of the Op- tions for Women Council of Alberta will be formed "if there is enough support from women concerned with wo- men's rights." At a meeting of Leth- bridge's embryo group this v.eek. said Ms. Madsen, "we talked about more of a local thing, but it ties in to the other because of the need for communication. "It's the need for a wo- men's centre to act as an information clearing house about things like welfare rights, women and law, work- ing women's rights, consum- er rights. OFY (Opportunity for Youth) group is working on consumer rights right now. and wants to work with the centre and get a consumer rights organization going." Varied uses She suggested the centre "could be used as a drop-in centre for study groups, dis- cussion groups or seminars on any kind of topic that interested the women. "It could be used as a crisis centre." In Lethbridge. "if your husband beats you up on the weekend, there's no- where to go. None of the helping facilities is open at weekends. "We could maintain com- munication with the provin- cial organization and work on provincial actions as well as local Ms. Mad- sen pointed out. "We are hoping to get a grant for fall, but we can really start operation right now. We've gotten a room can have the use of for the summer months. "The more women who want it (the the bet- ter the chance of getting a grant. Work together "I really want to empha- size it wouldn't be just a small group of women doing things for women. The only way it would work is if wo- men from all different back- grounds get together and work on the things and inter- ests and problems they have together, basically." An open meeting will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday at 542 7th St. S. "to talk about specific projects and we can get the women's cen- tre going immediately. "At least 35 women are interested in getting involv- ed right said Ms. Mad- sen, "but the more the bet- ter.

He said the devices have been "proven to causa death, ster- ility, hemorrhage leading to anemia, disabling pain, un- wanted pregnancy, miscar- ruptured tubal pregnan- cy, thousands of major surgi- cal procedures, massive infec- tion, blood transfusion and un- told numbers of x-rays to the ovaries of young women." He and Dr. John G. Madry, a private practitioner at Mel- bourne. Fla., called for tighter regulation of medical devices by the Food and Drug Admin- istration and stronger policing of devices advertising by the Federal Trade Commission. In Chicago, however, a spokesman for the American College of Obstetricians and Gy- necologists defended the IUD as being both safe and effective in comparison with the alterna- tives. "W7TTH every passing year it becomes more and more apparent that when- ever I get ready to clsan out the basement, dig up dan- delions, tidy the garbage cans in the back alley, our family is urgently needed al- most anywhere else. Sans develop an unbreak- able date with a ball caach or Scouts, and daughters should have been at Brown- ies five at leist. Husband has to dash off to an essential business msst- ing and is already half an hour late. As ha balls out the door, he hurriedly explains that he wouldn't even have snatched time out for dinner, only the reheated ground hsef with carrots and soggy cabbage was delectable enough to tanipt a saint. So there I am. left alone with my chores, and all that bsautiful peace and privacy I long for and never get- when I pick up the tehphone. Y'know. I find if I really want to be knee-deep in peo- ple, I just nesd to amble into the kitchen and pick up the phone, and all these wander- ing bodies immediately zaro in on me, bringing out all worst 5n ths together- ness thing. I dial the number of my favorite friend, and there is Youngest Daughter poking a bleeding finger under my nose. I scoot her to the cupboard to get a bandaid, and just as I rush back to pick up the dangling phone, the boiler burst and floods the base- ment. When the last drop of water is mopped, I dial once again, just as Oldest Daugh- ter comes hurtling through the door with a triumphant, bloody grin; proudly waving aloft a newly-detached tooth and giving a highly vocal account of her recent loss, w h i 1 e assorted brothers crowd around us both and complain loudly about tyran- nical parents who corner the market on phone calls. Likely as not, my neigh- bor will then poke her head around the door and ask if our phone is working, as my mother has tried to reach me for several hours and is wor- ried in case the house has collapsed on top of me. But there are compensa- tions. If I haven't seen some- one for a long time, say I haven't fosard from my Will- yum since he disappeared under a mound of dog-eared receipts around about income tex time I just pick up the phone and dial my friend. Instantly he is at my side, manding to know where I've hidden the rusty old bayon- ette his oldest brother sent him from the Pacific some- time during World War Two. I have, of course, resorted to stratagems at various but always unsuccess- fully. Locking the children in the basement, for instance, is not effective. The noise level reaches a point where the" whole horse creaks and fways dangerously, and any- way, I can't hear a word I say. Gagging them and lashing them to their beds is against the law. Bribing them to go to the store usua'ly ends up v.lth on 3 of the brib-ees fal- ling off a bike and nseding six stitches. Sneaking over to the neigh- bor's house is no easy way out, either. Not only do the children fellow on my heals, but the neighbor's youngsters gravitate towards our lot, I end up fee featured attraction for a larger-than- usual audience. I have been known to try a public phone booth, but it doesn't take long for the bloodhounds to sniff me out, and it always me to scs how many determined young bodies can cram them- selves into one itty bitty phone booth with me. The supermarket we pa- tron'ze, dreading our family onslaught, quickly buries its phone under mounds of bolog- na when it sees me coming whi'e cur corner stores whips ou- an out-of-order sign as I belly up to the ice-cream counter. 1 I've thought once or twice fbout using the police sta- tion, but as our bsvy of eager beavers would inevit- ably track me down, I'd pro- bably get arrested for dis- turbing the peace. (And judging from the number of nasty little personalized park- ing tickets our boys in blue are so eager to press upon me, they hate me enough to leap at the chance of plrfmg me in leg-irons or maybe even thumb-screws.) I've tried everything I car think of, from ground glass in the toothpaste to a trip to Disneyland this summer. Nothing has worked so far! But all is not yet tost! In my spars time I lock myself in the bathroom and work OR a sscret invention which wi'l enable me to carry out tong telephone conversations from under a dandelion root or in- side the left-hand can in the alley. I just KNOW it's going to work maybe!
