Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THi LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, March 15, 1974 Community groups urged to aid corrections field 'CALGARY (CP> Programs operated by the John Howard Society to aid prisoners are "Mickey E. E. Noel, new director of the Drumheller penitentiary says. "New programs are needed to keep pace with the changing philosophy of he told a meeting of the society. "You are going to have to do more than run bus services, half-way houses and inmate-outmate programs if you want to stop being the poor cousin in the corrections field." Current trends make it possible for the John Howard Society and other community-based groups to become equal partners with government in the correctional process, he said. "We are moving into the community and there is a need to explore and define what the community can contribute to corrections." He urged the society to create and develop preventitive programs which will keep people from becoming involved with the judicial-penal system in the first place. He also suggested the society develop programs which would substitute non- custodial penalties for prison terms. "The John Howard Society has the expertise to design programs of this kind and government will likely be very receptive to the idea of providing funds for new approaches." Mr. Noel outlined changes which are taking place in the penal system following a federal-provincial conference on corrections held in Ottawa last December. These include the integration of the Canadian Penetentiary Service with the National Parole Board, the expansion of facilities which may involve the construction of as many as six new penitentiaries this year and the creation of a prairie regional staff training centre for correctional and probation officers. Men's clothing styles reverting to conservatism By JEAN SHARP The Canadian Press It looks as though men are reverting to conservatism in clothing styles for the spring. A buyer in Ottawa said, "You can hardly give away a brightly colored shirt these days." He said the industry may be back" into a re- placement business, partly because of rising prices and tight money. Men would not buy to keep up with, fashion, only to replace clothes as they wear out. He was. perhaps, the gloomiest in outlook, but men's wear fashion experts everywhere predicted a con- servative season in a Cross- Canada Survey by The Cana- dian Press.

The flare on trousers is reduced to 21 Vz inches from 25 inches. Ties are inches wide. In St; John's, Nfld., as else- where, knitted suits have gone out of favor because of tailoring difficulties, and be- cause they have a tendency to bag. A buyer there said about half the dress shirts available for spring are white-on-white and colored shirts are in sub- dued shades. Co-ordinates were reported doing well in Montreal and Winnipeg, mixing shirts, vests, blazers, safari jackets in suits or jacket-and-pants ensembles. In Edmonton, a department store buyer said good quality men's shoes continue to have the traditional look. Vancouver struck the only exotic note, with a prediction that Oriental-style lounge wear, including smoking jack- ets, will be popular. Concern over rising prices was a constant theme. The Toronto writer predicted a 15- per-cent rise in the cost of a suit, to from or an overcoat, to from An exception was Winnipeg, where a buyer said there were no big price increases this spring." Marriage upsets Egyptian feminists PUBLIC BINGO (Pliyad Until Won) LETHBRIDGEELKS LODGE ROOM EVERY THUBS.-8 Ml. CAIRO (AP) A growing number of Egyptian women are quitting their jobs to get married, a sociological study shows. Feminists are dis- mayed. The study by the Social Re- search Institute said women of a female working force of half a million left jobs Jn offices and factories in the last four years once they were certain they were getting married. "The most serious thing is that the women do this freely despite the long and difficult struggle they have waged to win equality with men in the working said Abdel Halim El Kadi, head of the institute. Some feminists said the sur- vey was upsetting. "Perhaps some girls who clamor for equality only do it to make the chase hotter or to improve their chances of WIDTHS 4A.3A.2A A.

El Kadi said the oriental notion of marriage, which em- phasizes submission to the husband in all things, was a factor in women leaving their jobs. "The importance of mar- riage is repeatedly stressed as girls grow up in he said. "Some become ob- sessed with it and are pre- pared to sacrifice a job to get termination pay and thereby help a future husband furnish their home." The institute suggested one remedy was to have the gov- ernment establish a fund from which women workers could draw marriage loans to help furnish their homes so they can continue their jobs. It also recommended that the difference in wages paid to women and men doing bas- ically the same job be elimi- nated, and that day-care cen- tres for children be estab- lished. But the report conceded that the greatest obstacle is insistence by many Egyptian men that their wives quit their jobs upon marriage because not doing so implies the husband is not a good provi- der. Feminist Dr. Nawal El Sadawy. whose provocative book. Women and Sex, caused her to lose a government job. said the real importance of work for women is not under- stood by Egyptian men. SEEK INDEPENDENCE "They reluctantly accept the working wife so she can help raise the economic standards of the family, but men don't understand that women need a job to feel in- dependent and useful." she said. "Women want to con- tribute to society as employed workers, not only as wives and mothers in the home." The cause of the working wife was not helped by an- other government study, writ- ten by a man. which labelled women "employment haz- ards." because they are often absent, have headaches and react emotionally to daily of- fice problems. Magda Ibrahim is a 30-year- old former clerk who quit her job when she married but is looking for another since the couple has discovered the husband's income is not enough for their needs. we decided to marry, my husband and I did not have enough to furnish a flat and pay key money at the same time." Mrs. Ibrahim said. "So I resigned to get termination pay to help my husband get us set up. But we still can't make ends meet. So he has swallowed his pride and reluctantly said I can work again." When they leave their jobs Egyptian employees under government law receive half a month's pay for every year for the first five years of their employment and a month's salary for every additional vear.
