"The laws have been passed and made readable." she said. "Now I don't want the laws, or women, to go to sleep. "We must reach all women and get the statutes protecting their rights enforced.

That is three times as 1 it's like pregnancy, you have iIVORCE, French style is on the increase, but it is still weighted against the woman, according to News- paper Enterprise Associa- tion. Infidelity is responsible for two-thirds of all French di- vorces, ths associa t i o n points out, and alcoholism for one-quarter. Thirty two pur cent more couples are now di- vorcing in the 40-to-49 age group and 63 per cent in the over'60s, since 1960. Simone Cornec, well-known divorce lawyer in Gay Parse, says Frenchmen are increas- ingly losing their sense of responsibility, and they cite the most frequent reason for divorce as wives who are un- able to keep up with a hus- band's social ascent. But the real moiivs, sue claims, is just as often a chance meeting with a young- er woman and the increasing conviction of middle aged men that they are still young enough to start another life. Wives, however, according to Madame Cornec's exper- ience, have mere often than not shared the responsibility al the breakup of a longstand- ing marriage. The reason? Demands for equality. They insist on the same rights as men, but do not know how to live to them. Madame Cornec stresses the fact thai the hypocricy and resignation which once kept ill-assorted couples to- gether has now all but disap- peared in Fraiic-3. The big divorce difficulty for Frenchwomen, she says, is obtaining legal proof a husband, is able to pay ade- quate maintenance. Even when children were involved, a judge is inclined to assess alimony al a ridiculously low rate, and actions for nonpay- ment have a mysterious habit of getting sidetracked. A lav.- passed just one year ago seeks to close this glar- ing legal loophole and to pro- tect women such as one of Madame Cornec's acquaint- ances whose ex-husband's in- come is equivalent to some but who had to take a job as a cleaning lady in a department store. In tte past, all too many divorced Frenchwomen have been in a similar predica- ment. The season for freezin' will soon be upon us, and the home economists at Agricul- ture Canada advise us to shun potatoes, cabbage, car- rots. turnip and the like, which are available all win- ter at more-or-less reasonable prices and save our freezer space for such things as green and yellow beans, bro- ccoli, brussel sprouts, green peas, com on and off the cob and cauliflower. The pundits have some ad- vice on calculating quantities to freeze for next winter, and th-3ir recommendations are based on six servings, cal- culated to a family of four to six, depending on ap- petites, likes and dislikes. First cf all, allow six serv- ings of each vegetable per week, they tell us. (One serv- ing equals one-half cup. or three cups equal six serv- ings, whichever is easiest to Calculate the amount of each vegetable to be frozen by multiplying each quantity by the number of weeks be- tween December 1 and June 1 (about Package your vegetables by volume rather than Weight. One pint will contain three servings, and one quart six servings. For instance, one pound of shelled peas will serve six, so to serve frozen peas once a week for 25 weeks, you nsed 25 pounds of shelled peas packed in either 25 quart or 50 pint containers.
