Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Fourth Section The LetKbridge Herald Lethbridge. Alberta, Wednesday, March 27, 1974 Pages 35 44 -The Herald Maid shortage grave concern in Singapore By PETER O'LOUGHLIN SINGAPORE (AP) Oil shortages? Inflation? Making do with ground beef instead of filet? Spare a thought for the citizens of Singapore they can't get housemaids. The domestic crisis is so grave a local newspaper devoted a two-part series to the problem and headlined it: ".Where have all the maids To the factories that have sprung up as a result of Singapore's rapid industrialization. "The burgeoning industries have lured away thousands of women to do jobs which they find more rewarding and said The Nation. "Being a servant has become a social stigma." The maid shortage has forced Chinese and European housewives in this hot and humid city, 77 miles from the equator, to do their own washing, ironing, cooking and minding the children. Some households which used to boast a cook, wash amah, baby amah, driver and two gardeners are down to one servant or none at alj. There are still advertisements like this one in the Straits Times: "Wanted a couple, an amah or two amahs and a male domestic, must be fond of dogs, large family house." Those who know say ads like that are hopeless. The realistic approach is: "Cook amah live in small family. No washing, laundry. Attractive quarters." British and Chinese bemoan the arrival of large numbers of American oil men and their families. "Americans pay a month give them a television set, nights off, provide a washing machine and pay them to mind the kids at said a maidless Australian officer. "The next thing they'll be supplying air conditioned quarters." Housewives dread interviewing applicants. "My dear, SHE interviewed. said an American woman who has been in Asia for 10 years. "She wanted to know how many children, how may rooms, did we have a washing machine, were there any pets. She inspected the house as if she was buying it."

Doctor denied licence VANCOUVER (CP) Dr. Robert Makaroff, a former Vancouver abortionist, has been denied reinstatement of his permanent licence to practise medicine. The registrar of the B. C- College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. W. G. McClure, said the decision was made by the college council after Dr. Makaroff was interviewed earlier. Dr. Makaroff retains his temporary licence, which, according to' Dr. McClure, doesn't handicap him in any way from practising medicine. However, the temporary licence bars'him from voting or holding a'n executive position within the college. Dr. Makaroff, who served a prison term for abortion four years ago, has said he was seeking a permanent licence again to see if the college has caught up with current trends in which abortion is virtually available on demand through the profession. "To the college his appeal seemed to be an attempt to justify his previous said Dr. McClure.
