A topical statement froai the group urged the government to immediately institute a federal commission on human rights to safeguard the rights of all Canadians. They also called for the ap- pointment of a federal ombuds- man who would provide citi- zens with an objective avenue of appeal to government deci- sions. Concerned with the increas- ing threat to life from pollu- tion the organization stressed the need for an educational program to inform Canadians of the need to live in harmony with the life supporting re- sources on this earth. Additional guidelines for in- i volvement in the council's rrany faceted program in- cluded: human rights, Jewish life, social justice, public edu- cation, youth and day care fa- ciH'ies. Israel and non-partisan political involvement. Alan Rose, associate execu- tive director of the Canadian Jewish Congress addressing de'egates at a luncheon mark- ing the 25th Anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights, suggested that Canada should wcrk towards a federal com- mission on human rights "that has teeth.'' He also pointed out that less than half a dozen of the 137, recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Status of r Womsn. had been implement- j ed Among his many suggestions For future areas of effort were neighborhood storefront legal aid clinics for new immigrants and government control of data credit banks "'Even a journey of a thou- sand miles begins with but a single Mr. Rose con- cluded, quoting a Chinese proverb. Mr. Ed Smee of the Federal Department of State, citizen- ship branch, was also a guest panelist and spoke on govern- ment relations and resources. Mr. Smee also said that very few volunteer groups seemed interested in knowing what government is doing.

Men told to share chores PEKING (Reuterl The Leading Chinese newspaper, People's Daily, struck a blow for women's lib by urging that more wonrsn in. China be given positions of responsi- bility The newspaper said thaf leading comrades still maintain that young women giggle, middle-aged womeii procrastinate and are not ef- ficient therefore it is not worth training them This and other negative at- titudes towards women are the result of what the news- paper called "departmental egoism." The newspaper conceded that when working women get married they often have more housework to do which inevi- tably takes up time and energy. This was no reason for them to stop working, however. "Male comrades'" should be educated to organize their do- mestic affairs correctly and do some of the housework. People's Daily said. By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer Specialization and diversifi- cation are the key note within the Young Women's Christian Associations in Hong Kong and Manila, according to two visit- ing program directors. Connie Sa-Wan-Hung, staff member with the youth pro- gram in Hong Kong, and Vir- ginia Tablan of the Filipino capital, are in the city observ- ing the work 'of the local branch and becoming acclima- tized prior to attending a world- wide health consulation in Sas- katchewan. Connie, who has been in- volved with her YVVCA for the past four years, explained that the association in Hong Kong has a total of 20 centres pro- viding members with extensive services. "We are financed by the gov- ernment and through the com- munity chest." she said, "and set up our programs for the business and professional peo- ple; the youth and the home women.'' Programs are varied, with ballet classes, nursery services, outdoor activities, handicrafts and vocational training among the services provided. Bastion of supremacy APPENZELL (AP) With a defiant roar, the men of this hilly region in northeastern Switzerland said No to their women and thus it remained one of the last bastions of male supremacy in the country. At an outdoor assembly re- cently, the male electorate over- whelmingly turned down a con- stitutional amendment that would have given women the vote on local matters in Appen- zell-Iner Rhoden, population The roar went up as the men raised their hands to vote against the project that had been unanimously approved by the parliament of Iner Rhoden. the smaller of the two half-can- tons that make up Appenzell. Ausser-Rhoden, the other half, has not yet proposed suf- frage to its outdoor assembly. Appenzell women thus are limited to voting on federal af- fairs, a right they gained in a national election in 1971. CONNIE SA-WAN-HUNG, Hong Kong ''We are for all ages, but in the community centre in which I work, the programs are for the four to 25 age ex- plained Connie She added that the youth programs were very strong, and that the government ar active interest in the well- being of Hong Kong young peo- jple. I "There are so many people, j tnat the problem of juvenile I delinquency is foremost." Con- ;nie continued. j "The youth need a -jlace to j go and be able to develop them- selves, to enjoy their health and then- leisure time. The YW has helped with all of their needs and has developed good j physical education programs I "We are specialized and cov- er all areas of life every kind of program can be found in the YW." She added that those people working for the organization (are well educatsd and well I trained since the community centres include the services of 'social workers and other pro- I fessional personnel. Virginia, a board member 'serving the Manila YWCA. ex- plained that her organization wss also run along the lines of other international associations. "We have a membershirj of she said, "but as other YWs, we serve a much larger niraber. "There are various sections for different age groups such as the Y Buds for the elemen- tai-y children; Y Teens for the high school group, youth activ- ities for the college crowd and adult programs for the profes- sional people." She explained that at the piesent time, the organization is reaching out into the com- munity, broadening its func- tions and including such proj- ects as staff training in health services, population education and family planning. "All members of the staff roust hold a degree hi social 1 work." Virginia explained. She added that the history of her country is one of "over- professionalism" that the {country has been saturated I with highly-skilled professional people, and there is no diffi- j culty in acquiring top-notch workers. 1 While at the Saskatoon World Health Consultation with mem- i bars from 24 other countries, j I Connie and Virginia will pay; j particular attention to areas (which are of concern to them. to develop further activities at the Hong Kong centre. Virginia, on the other hand, will concentrate on health pro- gramming as the Filipino gov- ernment is extending health to cover all of the people and the YWCA will play a major part in the program. Both women will travel to Bcnff for a Canadian YWCA annual convention in mid-June, and will return to their coun- tries following several stops at other branches in Canada and the United States. Connie said she will observe i j th? physical education pro- j grams and use her knowledge VIRGINIA TABLAN. The Philippines Am CONDITIONING, HEATING Alcon Refrigeration lid.
