Native women plan national association EDMONTON - Delegate! to the first National Native Women's Conference being held in Edmonton this week, decided Tuesday to form a national association which would include treaty Indians, non - treaty Indians, Metis, and Eskimos. Mrs. Jean Goodwin of Ottawa was chosen to head a steering committee designed to formulate the proposed nationwide organization. Delegates to the steering committee were to be chosen by individual provincial organizations. ' Tuesday, provincial delegations gathered to formulate recommended issues to be dealt with by the national organization. A recommendation which was endorsed by all provinces was one in which falsely advertised 'Indian handicraft' originating in Japan should be taken off the Canadian market, or else should not be allowed to exploit original Indian handicraft by advertising as that. Some of the provincial recommendations made were: British Columbia - requested rough draft of aims and means of the national organization, to study possibilities of acquiring sounder, better - built homes, to aid and promote Indian arts and handicraft, and hero nonstatus Indian women; Saskatchewan - help raise status of women in all possible ways, form a national organization to be a stronger, united voice, and to provide direction to smaller groups. Manitoba - provide inter-provincial communication, to remove barriers to include all native people (status and nonstatus alike), get greater freedom from governmental interference, and persuade the band councils to give more responsibility to native women. Recommendations from other provincial delegations were: Nova Scotia - strive to have more funds allotted to native women's organizations, form a national organization to better educate the Indian people, promote the well - being of native women; Yukon - spend more time on solutions to problems, and not just talking about them, take a rightful place in society firstly as an Indian, and then as a woman, and strive for better equipped housing (sewage, heating, electricity, etc). Ontario - form a special committee with a national organization to look into the plight of non - status Indian women; Alberta - remove all barriers insofar as treaty and non-treaty women to make as strong a voice as possible. While dele gates from the Northwest Territories advocated the formation of a national organization, the only delegate from Quebec declined, and felt that she could not commit herself to making recommendations on behalf of all Quebec natives.

MISS DIANI COLE-Pernie, B.C. Poor Print MRS. J. R. RRINNIN, S02 19th St. S. Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I and our two children were invited to the home of friends. They nave children also. The four adults were having conversation concerning world affairs, the stock market, politics and the problem of educating young people today. Their 16-year-old son joined us. (The younger children were in another part of the house.) I made the statement that I favored sex education in public schools for the following reason: If parents can't discuss with their children the human body and its functions, such as sexual intercourse and masturbation, they should not object to a qualified teacher dispensing the correct information. When I verbalized the words "sexual intercourse and masturbation" my hostess gave me such a kick in the ankle I thought my foot would drop off. I was furious with her for kicking me and decided to speak my mind. I said, "I am sorry if I have spoken out of turn but I assumed you regard your son as an adult since you allowed him to join the conversation." She replied in anger, "I do not regard a 16-year-old as an adult. And you should have sense enough to keep your language within acceptable limits, taking into consideration everyone present." Needless to say, the rest of the evening was stilted and uncomfortable. On the way home my husband said I was out of order and suggested that I telephone the hostess and appol-ogize. I disagree but said I would do so if Ann Landers thought I should. Do you? -Chicago Reader DEAR CHICAGO READER: No, I do not. A 16-year-old boy should be acquainted with the terms "sexual intercourse" and "masturbation" and not be shocked by them. If the boy's mother didn't consider Mm sufficiently adult to hear those words she should not have permitted Mm to join the group. I do hope this lad is getting sex education in public school because he is not learning much at home if Ms mother's comments are an index to her approach to the sub- DEAR ANN LANDERS: My wife if 44 years old, a grandmother three times. She is destroying herself the same way her father did - booze and pills. My mother-in-law shielded her husband for years, lied to Ms employers, lied to the doctors, lied to neighbors and relatives. She thought she was doing him a favor, but she really helped put him in his grave. Our two older children left home the minute they were legally, able to do so. They couldn't take their mother's drunken rages, her screaming and vomiting and her passing out. Now that she has started mixing the pills with the booze she is knocked out half the time and I never know when I come home from work whether I will find her dead or alive. Three times in the last two years I have had to rush her to the hospital in a coma. Please tell me what to do. This woman is making a nervous wreck out of me and the children. I am only a working man and can't afford expensive doctors. I need some help. -Rope's End DEAR R.E.: Your wife should be hospitalized. Call your family doctor at once and ask Mm where she should be token. I'm sure you recognize the fact that your wife has a strong suicidal tendency and unless she gets treatment soon she will one day achieve her goal. fll wk ^fe fjfc 4b mk ffh 4fc 4fc mm A m 4fc Maxine's Ladies9 Wear EASTER Pre- Starts Thursday 9 a.m. EH ONE GROUP OF WASHABLE PANTS Clearing at............. * PRICE ONE GROUP OF OUTDOOR PANT SUITS Clearing at........... 25% OFF A GOOD SELECTION OF LOUNGEWEAR Clearing at i PRICE ONE GROUP OF DRESSES Clearing at i OFF ALL OUR EXCITING NEW SPRING STOCK has arrived - a complete range of pant suits, dresses and ensembles.

Please find enclosed my $20 for registration J t Cold Duck What an absurd, ridiculous, inappropriate, dumb name for a great new sparkling wine. Actually, there Is a reason for It. The name Cold Duck is a literal translation of a German pun. At the end of a party, guests would mix left-over wines together... calling the results "Kalte Ende" or "cold ends". Then the last word, "Ende" was Jokingly changed to "Ente", meaning literally, "duck". But there's no Joking about the taste of Andres Cold Duck wine. It's a tingling, unstuffy blend of Champagne and fine sparkling Burgundy. It maketh merry. It's new from Andres. You'll like it ANDRES COLD DUCK...a blend of Champagne and fine sparkling Burgundy.
