Manpower offices may be renamed to describe role MONCTON, N.B. (CP) Federal manpower centres may be renamed to more accurately describe their role in finding equal employment for both sexes, says Manpower Minister Robert Andras. He told delegates at a meeting of the National Council of Women, at Moncton University, that because of some attitudes toward the word manpower the name may be changed to "something more accurately descriptive like human resources centres." "It is not the word that is an he said. "It is the attitude which is attached to it, an attitude which is definitely changing, though perhaps not rapidly enough to suit the women who are struggling to get ahead in the labor force, which in many cases slants in favor of men." The minister said the government has to "sensitize ourselves even more strongly" to the issue of equal opportunity. He said that although more women are moving into the labor force, they still appear to be relegated to lower-earning jobs "Even the bulk of women in the so-called professions are in traditionally female professions like teaching and nursing." The minister said occupational segregation is a hangover from another era and the push-button technology of today has destroyed any validity of that argument. Manpower centres, he said, still receive requests for men to fill positions, even though the positions do not necessarily require male applicants. He said that although the centres were traditionally neutral in these situations, they now act as advocate for applicants who have been denied a job due to sex discrimination. The minister said the department intends to develop a closer relationship with various provincial human rights commissions. He also said the department intends to: steps through advertising and counselling to advise working women of special services that exist for them. centres to encourage women to enter arebs of work other than traditional. a training program to give manpower counsellors a knowledge and expertise to deal with problems facing women in the labor market. The program will be implemented during the current fiscal year. department publications to ensure they do not reflect sex stereotyping. Information material will be produced for women only. A text of the speech was issued prior to delivery. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Beautiful, isn't it?

Maryon Kantaroff told delegates at the third national conference of Women In Colleges and Universities here this weekend. Miss Kantaroff. a Toronto self-styled radical feminist and keynote speaker at the conference, said women are still going to university basically for the same reason they went back in the 1950s. They are not flocking into business adminstration. medicine or law, they're still going into the humanities "and thinking 'how do I fill in time until I really get to the important job of marriage and having babies'." she said. She also voiced her opinion about academic women who look on their secretaries with the same condescension women are used to getting from men. "It's just as ugly. We've got to start breaking down theese barriers. They're only a reflection of the male world in which we grew up Margaret Anderson, a faculty member at the University of Guelph, said studies in the last three years show universities are not the most satisfying place for women to work. The reports show that women represent a small proportion of the faculty, and that they are paid less than men in every rank, she said. Another topic, the plight of immigrant mothers, was laid before the conference by Judith Weisman of the Inter- Agency Council for Services to Immigrants and Migrants. Toronto. Miss Weisman said she believes it is the responsibility of the colleges and universities to provide good English courses for newcomers to this country.

But Lin Bolen, an NBC-TV vice- president, tends to stand out and not just because she's a woman She's in charge of NBC's daytime programming, a critical held since the bulk of network revenues come from the soap operas and game shows critics love to rap and millions of housewives love to watch. At last report, there were only seven women vice-presidents at the three major U.S. networks one at ABC, two at CBS and four at NBC. But only Miss Bolen is actually helping decide the shape, form and fate of programs on U.S. television. Why aren't more women in jobs of similar responsibility? "They've simply not been given the opportunity to prepare said Miss Bolen. who at 33 earned her vice-presidency last October. "In order to be able to do the job, you must have the background that will enable you to do it properly. And until recently, most women have not been given the opportunity to learn the business from the bottom up. both administratively and creatively." After studying advertising at City College here, she went in the business of producing commercials. Then came stints as a production executive on three ABC-TV documentaries, a Hollywood tour at Metromedia Producers Corp. where she helped develop new TV projects and then on to Universal, whpre she worked on children's programs.
