For while then- cwmter- parts hi the south are con- cerned about recent price in- creases, northerners have long been accustomed to [landing over a sizable por- tion of their Incomes for the basic necessities of food, clothing and fuel.

(Mostly male, I'm sure.) I refer specifically to your comments to the 42- year-old woman who had had a hysterectomy and said the operation had seriously dam- aged her sex life. I've been there and I can tell you that wjman spoke the truth. At age 44, I had a total hysterectomy. My physician mone pills after the opera- tion and I'd be "good as be- fore." Well, he was wrong. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but it's like los- ing your appetite (which was once very lusty) and having lo force yourself to eat. You can get the food down all right, but the pleasure is gone. Please, Ann, take the word of someone who knows. Grateful For A Good Mem- ory DEAR GRATEFUL: Your letter was one of many from women who said the same thing. More women, how- ever wrote as this one did.

A two-day seminar for those working in voluntary and paid positions as organizers in com- munity groups will be held March 20 and 21 in Calgary. Peter Katakotis, co-founder of the Parallel Institute, Mon- treal, will be speaker for the vorkshop which will take place t the continuing education di- of the University of Cal- jary. He will address organizers of such groups as community as- sociation, recreation, tenant, civil rights, low income, na- ,ive, feminist, welfare rights and others concerned with so- cial change and justice. Part of the seminar will be devoted to Mr. Katakotis' own activities and experiences and the remainder to helping or- ganizers understand how they can improve thsdr effectiveness.

Ste. Theresa Point, about 400 miles north of Winnipeg, is an example. The experience is similar in other communi- ties accessible only by air and ice roads in the winter, and prices generally rise the far- ther north supplies are shipped. Tae late Gordon Beard, who represented tho province's northernmost riding o! Churchill, often reminded his colleagues in the Manitoba legislature of the need to al- leviate tho premium prices persons pay for living in the North and advocated selective tax cuts to reduce living costs there. EYE FREIGHT COSTS While the government has lieen disinclined to accept such a proposal, there have been other initiatives to re- duce freight costs to northern communities one .of the prime factors behind high consumer prices. For the first time this year, the provincial government has taken over the task building an extensive network of ice roads in the North from private contractors. Money has also been earmarked for airstrips and cargo facilities for communities to be sup- plied by air. Together, the government hopes these two projects will cut .transportation costs this year or at least point out a way ol doing this in future years. The Manitoba Indian Broth- erhood has formed its own construction company to un- dertake part of the winter road work, and brotherhood president Chief Dave Courch- ene believes the Indians will be able to cut surface trans- portation costs to about seven Persons interested in attend- ing may obtain further infor- mation by writing to the Co- ordinator, Continuing Education in Social Development, Divi- sion of Continuing Education, University of Calgary.

She said Parliamentary pro- cedure provides "an imbalance women don't have as loud a voice as men." Speaking to the Edmonton Business and Professional Wo- men's Club, Mrs. Aulin also ob- jected because women often are forced to train younger men who will one day take over their jobs. She anticipated a change in status of women and in social attitudes because many young women now feel "they can get up and express themselves without being censured."
