Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE irHBRIDGI HfRAtD WBdnoidoy, Mav 31, 1975 More women senators wanted REG A There should bo more women in Iho Senate, on juries nncl presiding over Canadian courts, the Na- tional Council of WOmen of Canada agreed here. About delegates to trie c o u n c 11's annual meeting adopted a resolution urging Prime Minister Trudcau In summon "a greater number of qualified women from each province to the Senate as seals become vacant." This policy would be contin- ued until '-a more equitable membership is achieved." Ouugt'itea referred to the re- port of the royal commission OD the status of women, which said women are overlooked for politi- cal appointments because it is not customary to consider them. It was not a matter of there being a conscious policy of keeping women out of important offices. Another resolution urged that information o n occupational training programs for adults be made more available to women outside Liie labor force thriugh increased advertising. The resolution said full-time household responsibility should be considered participation in the labor force andhomemakers he eligible for training alliw- ances. The manpower depart- ment would develop policies to increase the number of women trained for Itighly-skilled occu- pations and managerial posi- Bins. Dclcgales also approved a resolution remtesling (he federal government, i n co-operation with the provinces nnd territo- ries, to extend the present sys- tem of student loam to include part-time students, who cur- rently do not qualify for such1 plans. Because some married per- sons nrc fxolufied unless their husbands or wives endorse the loan application, the council said that a married person should be permitted to apply on the same basis as a single per- son. The council said it supports legislation bctore the Commons which would amend the Crimi- nal Code lo extend jury service I to men and women on an equal basis in criminal cases. The government also was urged to proliibit the systematic exclusion of any groups from jury duty on the basis of sex, race, marital status or religious affiliation. Other resolutions asked: the federal govern- ment provide financial incen- tives for advanced sewage- treatment projects and refuse loans for sewage-treatment pro- jects unless their effluent would be of high quality. Ottawa, in co-opera- tion with provincial nnd munici- pal governments, research the development of effective sys- tem? of waste retrieval and re- circulation or recycling. the National Housing Act be amended to permit loans for construction, purchase and renovation of buildings for day- care centres and permit the in- clusion of space for day-earn centres in housing development, including university buildings for which NHA loans arc issued. vagrancy sections of the Criminal Code be repealed and governments provide an ad- equate fund to support pro- grams and facilities to rehabili- tate adult prostitutes and pre- vent young girls from becoming prostitutes. the consumer alfairs department consider producing up-to-date films on consumer education, especially on topics such as the real cost of credit buying. the federal govern- ment give youth the opportunity to "contribute, voluntarily, ono year of service to Canada, with- out phasing out existing pro- grams of naval, army and air cadets."

During that time, she lias seen a great many of the 10 lo patients who have come through the doors ant) down the hallway of the clinic. Some have only been treated I lor a short time, others have become long term patients who are happy to be able lo re- turn each year for a follow-up check, and leave knowing tliero is no sign of the cancer cells. The clinic Is the only one of its kind in Lethbridge. and al- though il is located in the base- ment of the Lethbridge Muni- cipal Hospital, il is not affili- ated wifh il. Mrs. Derbyshire, medical secretary to the clinic, said, arc a government clinic, under the Provincial Cancer Hospital Board, with Dr. D. A. Rice as the director." She said there is no connec- tion between the clinic and the cancer society, "although we work in co-operation with eacb other." The cancer clinic is staffed with a team of five doctors, a gynecologist, an internist, two surgeons, and a pathologist. There are also three nurses who work at the clinic Tuesday mornings, at which time the treatments are administered, as well as a permanent staff ot two and one half persons. Mrs. Derbyshire said that on the average, 50-70 persons at- tend the clinic for diagnosis and treatment per week. She said the treatments avail- able include an extensive and comprehensive range of chem- otherapy, deep x-ray therapy, radium insertions and superfi- cial x-ray for skin cancers. All treatment is provided free of charge to the patient. When there is a need for the use of cobalt treatment, the patients are sent to either Cal- gary of Edmonton, as there are no facilities for its use in the city. In general, Mrs. Derbyshire said that "people come in to see a doctor much sooner than they did a few years thus assisting in early diagno- sis and treatment. "The biggest fear is Iwrng told that their suspicions about having cancer are she said. "We've seen an upswing in lung and larynx cancers, and some breast and gynecologi- she said. Treatment at the clinic is based on the extent of the can- cer, and follow-up checks are made on a three-week, three- month, six-month ana oncc-a- year periods. Mrs. Derbyshire explained that "on the average, we see about 370 new malignancies a year. Is done to Iry and heal the cancer, and the earlier the treatment, t h e greater the chances for a com- plete cure." She said that she has seen "a lot of happy people who under good and that it is well worth the effort of working in the field. have done well care ami good THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes figure we'll need three gallons for the living room, two for the den, and one for his overalls.

Speaking lo about Rates at the opening session o[ Hie councils 79th annual meet- ing, she criticized women not for pooling (heir resources and intellects to keep themselves Ijetler represented in the House of Commons. Until now, Mrs. Hnatyshyn said, women have contented themselves with "good works" outside of politics. In 50 years of sufferage, women MPs had never num- hered more than six at any one time. That record was set in 1964. Inclusion of women in the federal cabinet lias never been anything more than a gesture she added, noting that Lhero have been only two women ministers since Ellen Fairclough and Judy La- Marsh. Despite their so-called good intentions, political parties tended to intimidate potential women candidates or run them in "sacrifice seats" where they had little chance of winning. Mrs. Hnatyshyn called on the council lo establish ad hoc committees at tire local and na- tional levels to direct political activity among women. Once the council commits it- self lo such a cause, funds couid be raised, speakers bu- reaus set up. and the popula- tion educated lo accept women as polilicans. It was not enough to register protests or write letters, she said. Doing h'ltle more than casting votes was an abdication of responsibility. Mrs. cited Nor- way and Sweden as outstand- ing examples of nations which have encouraged women to en- ler all levels o[ government.! The result, she said, has been i that several top-ranking mala I they were too accustomed lo ac- cepting discrimination as a nal- ural condition of life. It's too much to hope for suc- cess in the coming election be- cause campaigning for it should have begun four years ago, she said. "But remember, we have no way Lo go but up unless ot course we lose Grace Mac- Innis in the next election."
