Those who couldn't see the peg, heard it and threw their rubber horseshoes accordingly. Field Secretary Ben Siemens of Calgary was on hand to, enjoy the fun and games, most of which were chosen for their sound qualities rather than visual.

He is one of 50 airmen named to the Order of Icarus. Mrs. Ida Smith of Lethbridge, plans to be on hand in Edmonton for the civic reception in her brother's honor. The public is accustomed to seeing a Salvation Army miss with a tamborine or even playing a cornet but a uniform clad Salvationist blowing the bagpipes well that's another thing! Mrs Gordon Lowe of the Lethbridge corps is as accomplished on the Scottish national instruments as she is with brass. When she plays hymns on her bagpipes with its leather bag fitted with five wooden pipes (the bagpipes are believed to have been brought to Scotland by the Roman invaders years ago) her listeners are thrilled. The annual Royal Purple Day was marked in the city with a visit to the patients at the Edith Cavell Nursing Home where guests were presented with corsages and boutonniers and hosted to a tea convened by Julia Smolicky. This past year members of the Royal Purple have donated some to charities.

The group, previously well represented by males is now supported only by single mothers. The organization meets the first and third Thursdays of each month at First United Church with members currently benefitting from discussions on belonging: how to become a whole person and what loving is all about. Happy though handicapped? That's the tone of the members of the Handicapped Social Service group who start their audience's feet a tapping when Margaret Wood's Happy Handicappers strike up the band. Lawrence Posterski, pianist; Linda Hogenson, Accordionist; Steve Kalli, mouth harp and Tim Weirsma on the drums provide lively music while the 10- member cast directed by Mrs. Wood and Marie Markert present comedy and pathos in their well chosen productions, such as their recent production, "They All Came Back." The only problem facing these ambitious citizens is the bus rental and hall rental they're faced with every meeting night. Young woman breaks into real estate TORONTO (CP) At 23, Louise Cherevaty is one of the youngest women in Ontario to pass the real estate brokers' course and set up her own business. Miss Cherevaty operates two branches of Major Realty Ltd., one in the Borough of Etobicoke. one in nearby Mis- sissauga. She also owns a condominium apartment and a home on the lake in nearby Port Credit. "Crime? Women are just coming out: housewives and single women. They're doing things they didn't do before. Men used to turn their women out on the street. Now a woman can turn herself out and doesn't have to wait. Now she's keeping everything for herself and the kids. Yes, women are becoming more violent." An inmate at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, Bedford Hills, N.Y. By NADINE BROZAN New York Times Service NEW YORK When the sociological dust kicked up by the turmoil of the 1960's settled, the public spotlight focused on a startling increase in the number of women involved in crime. Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics indicating arrests of women were outpacing the rate of male arrests first surfaced several years ago. Reports also showed that women were graduating from prostitution and shoplifting to armed robbery, grand larceny, narcotics and- all the so called "masculine" endeavors. The experts wondered why and went right on studying crime in male terms. Now the question of the role of women has been revived by the volatile explosion of the Symbionese Liberation Army and the apparent influence of its female members. Is the S.L.A. an isolated phenomenon? Does the absorption of women into the business community mean they are likely to commit more business crimes? What about the economically and educationally deprived women, who still comprise the majority of the prison population? Are they stealing bread for their children or ripping society off for its inequities? Mathematically, the most recent nationwide statistics reinforce widespread impressions that arrests of women are increasing proportionately faster than those of men and that women are getting into the major leagues of criminal activity. According to the F.B.I.'s Uniform Crime Reports, the rate of women arrested for serious crimes, such as homicide, aggravated assault, robbery and burglary, went up by 246.2 per cent from 1960 to 1972, compared to an increase of 81.7 per cent for men. The female arrest figure for all offenses climbed by 85.6 per cent, the total male arrest figure by 28.2 per cent during the same period. The 1973 report is now being tabulated. an F.B.I, official said he expected it to show the upsurge continuing. Many justice watchers consider the statistical increases more symptomatic of newly vigilant attitudes of the police and courts than of behavioral changes among women Some even suggest that detention and incarceration figures reflect a backlash against women's liberation, an attitude of "you want equality, we'll give it to you Dr. Rita J. Simon, professor of sociology and law at the University of Illinois, has ventured into analysis of cause in a paper entitled "Women and Crime." "Women are now more involved in crimes of property and less in crimes of violence." said Prof. Simon, whose report, commissioned by the crime and delinquency center of the National Institute of Mental Health, will be published at the end of the year. "The kinds of violent crimes they committed in the past were different from those of she said. "They killed their husbands, lovers, other women and babies. Now that's decreasing because you can divorce your husband, leave your lover and abort your baby What of the doors that women are opening'' Is it valid to assume that some of those doors lead to the wrong side of the law? Almost everyone agreed that crime is an inevitable spmoff of liberation, but they emphasized that the feminist movement is in no way culpable.
