Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHSRIDGE HERALD Thimdoy. May 3, 1973 Opportunities for women discussed at city seminar By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer Options in the fields of em- ployment, education, training and counselling for women were discussed at a seminar held Wednesday at Southminst e r Church. Sponsored by the Canada Manpower and the Secretary of State Citizenship Branch, the was intended to ga- ther ideas on the subjects from women in south Alberta com- munities to be presented at a regional conference. "The project grew from a conference of women which was held last explained Ca- therine Warren. En administra- tor with the conturoing educa- tion branch of the University cf Calgary. Women who v.ere already ac'ive in various spheres throughout the western prov- inces assembled and aired their views on exactly hai v, as lack- ing, what v.as needed in their communities. "It was decided to travel across the province and ask vomen everywhere to express their individual needs and con- cerns, and combine our ef- icvts and then push for hn- p-ovemcnts.'1 She went on to explain that another Western Conference on Opportunities for Women will be held May 11 through 1'3 at the University of British Colum- bia campus "in Vancouver and chat delegates from all west- ern provinces and the North- west Territories will be in at- tendance. "The purpose of this all is to bring together women who have problem ar.as, make them aware of what's avail- able bo them and how to go about initiating needed pro- i grams on their own to j plan things with women, not I for women." I It was said that toe move- jment is meant to help organ- ize women to improve their status and give them a repre- j sentative body for a stronger I voice in the Aitarta govern- j m-snt. I Among those suggestions and j concerns brought OIK during j the group discussion were the 'recognition of volunteer work- jets, and training available for low income women. The group representative added that low income women faced with tha problem of 'obtaining a good job which THE BETTER HALF By Barnes as paying sufficient wages to allow decent child care facili- ties. It was noted that job applica- tions should not require the age, sex or race of the appli- cant as these tend to categor- ize people; funds should be made available to women ward- ing to 'Eke a summer or single evening course; there should be implementation of reports car- ried out concerning women and parent controlled, federally funded day care centres. A second group offered the idea of a localized women's in- formation centre, which would deal with unifying women's or- gpinizations and helping each other ss needed in all fields. Equal pay scales for equal I work loads were also mention- ed, with the problem of job discrimination and concern over reporting the situation for fear of bang fired. j It was suggested that this j should be a major concern, ar.d I "fighting together, not letting the situation carry on" given I as a solution. Included in the list was the need for short educational courses for fewer numbers of women, and less emphasis on a strict enrolment; pay for par- ents who care for their children within the home environment: better and fuller use of the media for the purpose of train- ing and making known oppor- tunities for women and the necessity of an extensive home- maker service. In conclusion, the group was told that 25 delegates were needed from southern Alberta to a'jbend the May seminar. Five women who qualify will be completely funded by Can- ada Manpower; 10 will receive airfare from the citizenship branch and the remainder may be funded by any existing or- ganization.

For years, my standard ex- cuse for failure was to attri- bute all to the little man in my heed. Everyone has a little man who resides permanently in the head, wno takes in in- coming information, files it appropriately and then re- leases it on command. His filing system is ex- tremely complicated with rows on rows of file cabine'.s lining the walls, from top to bottom, while he himself sits in the on a swivel stool with coasters. Being a tempermental scrt of fella, it isn't unusual to have him declare an impromp- tu strike for a number cf rea- sons higher wages, object- ing to the type of informa- tion being received, or de- mands for a secret ary wi h nice legs. Unfortunately, most of bis strikes occur at all the wrong times. Like just after you've met a great guy at a party, or when you go for your first job interview, or when you try to explain exactly what kind of dress you're looking for. Most likely of all, he hands in his stool just before exams particularlily Grade 12 finals. The horrible feeling of nau- sea and fear that creep into your throat as you set pen to paper and realize not a sen- tence is coming through, is entirely the little man's fault. He has chcsen this time to padlock the files, block the memory chute, bring out Ms 'On Strike' placard and par- ade around your skull in his boc's. Attempts to reason with him, pacify him, or threaten Tiim with expulsion from the memory workers' guild are futile. It provoked, he may take dras'ic action and commence opening tVs file drawers and flinging out files carelessly, leaving yea to figure out the me while he a nap. V.'crse sail is when he ge'.s with the English Lit txr.ni, refuses to send off niamcry sheets on Hamlet and iiv.r.s up his afternoon by slipping 'in causes of the War of the R0S33. At other times, he carries or. wildly summing drawers, zipping across the floor on squeaky coasters, working late into the night and ask- ing for exam day off. Although his practical jokes arc! lack of co-operation occur ct the worst possible mo- ments, I must admit that he's not all bad. Actually, his salvation is in the wonderfully confusing ex- planations he provides, and of course the fact that it's impossible to fire him any- way. u pan of cookies for the neighbors?

By .JTDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer A year of changes for the bscterment of the organization wag forecast at last evening's annual meeting of the Leth- bridge Family Services. Sylvia Campbell, board mem- ber, presented points and a brief en the type of service the agency will slive to offer our community and how these changes will be reached. She said that the problem within the old fonn of organ- ization was that "we were not meeting our objectives of serv- ing the people in the commun- ity adequately with the coun- selling service.'' Following teveral in ernal agency meetings it was decid- ed that the priorities would fall under "promoting devel- opment of human resources in the community." As a result of evaluations and determining in which man- Mr the needs of the community could best be served, several alternatives were drawn up. These include, in order of importance, promoting human worth, social prevention ser- vices, accessibility, effort, reaching isolates in the community and flexibility. Through new programs in- v o 1 v i n g volunteer training, neighborhood centres, mobile units ard resource training centres, it is hoped that these goals will be reached and there- fore fill the gap which has ex- isled. J.Irs. Campbell confined, "the board has dbcided to proceed on this matter 2nd hopes to achieve these goals in the next few months with a tentative terse: date of early Decem- "We are looking at the ques- tion, 'how are we going to offer the best services', and this is the direction in which wa have chosen to she said. Included in future changes for the family services is the hiring of staff to facilitate these changes, alterations to legal documents sad poss'bly a change of name for the ser- vice. During the meeting, four new board members were added to existing list. include Donna Thack- er, Catherine MacNeil, Fr. Bill Kelly and George Mann, who will all serve for the specified three year per- iod.
