Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THI LtTHMIDOl HEtAlD - Monday, Marcli M, 1*71 U.S. shortage aided Nurses9 training for police and firemen NEW YORK (AP) - Every night on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the classrooms and hallways in the Hunter Cot lege-Bellevue School of Nursing rumble with the deep resonant voices of student nurses who sport a sprinkling of moustaches, goatees and bald beads. For these students are grown men, almost 100 of them, engaged in an innovative experiment with two main goals: -To help overcome a critical United States-wide shortage of nurses. -To train policemen and firemen to become full-fledged registered nurses so they can have second careers after they retire as early as age 40, or later; Their new careers will pay well, be psychologically rewarding and combat potential retirement boredom. The project is proceeding with high enthusiasm of the student j nurses, despite some razzing still in firehouses and police sta- tions, ranging from "when you gonna get your, cap?" to ribaldry. But since the program began last September that kind of derisive reaction is diminishing. 13 HOURS A WEEK Fellow firemen and policemen are willingly trading duty hours to assist the 95 men and four women to attend 13 hours of evening classes each week. The program takes 2% years, with August off for vacation. Graduates can take state examinations to permit them to practise nursing. The experiment began as an idea of Dr. Joseph A. Cimino, a 37-year-old physician, five years ago when he was serving on the medical retirement boards for the New York City police and fire departments. Cimino, among other jobs, now is an as< sistant administrator of the city's Environmental Protection Administration. Long interested in public health and the increasing shortage of nurses and other medical personnel, he became impressed that men planning early retirement rarely considered jobs in the medical field. Nurses' salaries "are starting to catch up to where they should be," Cimino said, and the men will have retired with half-pay as well.

Prof. T. J. Wuester, who teaches family law at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, said in an interview the courts have differed widely in their decisions. Prof. Wuester has begun a study of the problem aimed at finding solutions that accord with the modern concept of marriage as an equal partnership. Historically, wives in Canada have had a legal right to maintenance following a divorce, but not to a share of the property, He cited a decision of the Supreme Court of Canada, which held that a wife could not share in the property unless she had made a financial contribution to its purchase. In a recent Saskatchewan judgment, Prof. Wuester noted, a wife who had worked for 25 years helping her husband build up agricultural assets estimated to be worth $200,000 received none of this when the marriage ended in divorce. WORKED FOR YEARS The property was in the husband's name and although the wife had contributed to its value through years of work, she had not contributed financially. In this case, the wife had been awarded a substantial monthly maintenance, "but there are circumstances in which maintenance could be poor substitute for an equitable division of property." Some courts had provided a "lump sum maintenance" settlement and a recent Alberta judgment had ordered a division of property despite the earlier position of the Supreme Court of Canada. Prof. Wuester contended that the time may have come to consider a new legislative solution to the problem that would recognize adequately the contribution of both partners. He said the issue is particularly relevant in Saskatchewan where a large number of family 426 13th STREET NORTH ;!ii!ft,iy� farms have been developed through the joint efforts of husbands and wives. However, it was important elsewhere in Canada as well and a new look at the division of property was among the recommendations of the royal commission on the status of women. As part of his research, Prof. Wuester is. studying how the problem is dealt with in various Canadian provinces and in states where the concept of "comraunity property" has been adopted. But procedures that might work well elsewhere may not be applicable i n Saskatchewan "where any legislative propos als should reflect our rural situation."

Miller CREATIVE STRETCH FABRICS Instructor-Joan Pisko 8-2 HOUR LESSONS FOR ONLY $20 HURRY, NUMBER PER CLASS LIMITED GENEVA (Renter) - The domestic servant is still the Cinderella of the world's labor scene today, overworked, underpaid and generally neglected by society. This is the conclusion of the International Labor Organization here, which has completed worldwide survey of conditions of domestic workers, based on material supplied by 65 countries. The survey said domestic servants working in private households formed a group which tended to be at a disadvantage-peculiarly devoid of legal and social protection and singularly subject to exploitation. Their legitimate interests and welfare had long been neglected in most countries.

Dessert bridge The YWCA World Relationship Committee is sponsoring a Dessert Bridge afternoon to be held in Southminster United Church hall, Tuesday, March 30, at 1:15 p.m. All Interested bridge parties are asked to phone Mrs. Jameson at 327-7060, or Mrs. Williams at 327-3564. Proceeds from the afternoon will be used to further YWCA work in developing countries and at home by providing leadership training and opportunities for people everywhere to gain the dignity and self respect which is rightfully theirs. perhaps quite a few today In parts of the developed world, in which the shortage of workers is so acute and the demand for them is so great that they can dictate their own conditions up to a point," the survey said. "Even so, other problems remain and in any case this particular situation does not prevail, in most of the world. On the whole, the majority of domestic workers appear to be overworked, underpaid and under-protected." To help raise the status of domestic servants, the ILO suggested they should be given training and practical apprenticeship, that countries should draw up model contracts for use between employer and servant, and that domestic workers should be better covered by social security. The survey said domestic employment in private households was insignificant and actively discouraged in the socialist countries of Eastern Europe, was decreasing in most countries of Western Europe and North America, but existed on a fairly wide scale in Asia, Latin America and Africa. In some countries, men made up the bulk of domestic workers, but in most countries women predominated. Children still appeared to be employed to a fairly substantial extent in domestic work. The survey painted a gloomy picture of working conditions for domestic servants' in most parts of the world. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes L ADDRESS ....... CLASS REQUIRED TIME AND DAY . .

"One man could be the equal of 10 to 15 female nurses in terms of actual working years during his career." "It's really very good," says Joseph Machtel, 51, a policeman for more than 19 years and- like some of the others-a medic during the Second World War. "You get a different outlook on life, a chance to become a professional man. You learn' a lot of things about the human body that surprise you, new things to learn since you last studied any medicine." Enthusiastic also are Dean Marguerite C. Holmes of the nursing school, and Mary Tat-ten, R.N., who is project director. Both are impressed with the motivation of the men, who range in age from 28 to 57, with more than half in their 40s. They range m rank from patrolman and firemen to police captain and fire marshal.
