Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Marriage breakdown issue Unif arm women demand half of farm assets CALGARY The sub- stantial contribution to an agricultural enterprise made fty farm and ranch women who work alongside their lusbands warrants their ob- taining half the farm assets following a marriage say the Women of Unifarm. A resolution to this effect was passed during their convention here. The action was prompted by i recent Supreme Court of decision which barred Irene Florence Murdoch of from any share in the farm she had worked on with her husband for 2S years. The 150 delegates also pass- ed a motion protesting the Supreme Court decision up- holding a section of the Indian Act which deprived native women of their treaty rights when marrying men who are not treaty Indians. Included in the resolution was a request that the Canadian Bill of Rights be amended to take precedence over any prior or future legislation. Another resolution asked that the government make strikes by teachers illegal and teacher contract disputes settled by compulsory ar- bitration. Resolutions were passed asking that farmers who employ their wives on the farm be able to deduct their wives' wages from their in- come tax and that a wife of a veteran who purchases land through the Veteran Land Act be able to retain her dower rights. She now must relin- quish them. They also resolved to ask for a progressive reduction of the old age security pension age to 60 from 65. CASA DEL MONTE Located at 1658 Scenic Heights.

Rail talks take unusual twist By VIC PARSONS OTTAWA Rail arbi- tration hearings took an un- usual twist Friday when a top company negotiator suggested shopcraft tradesmen should have pressed for 100-per-cent pay raises. The tongue-in-cheek proposal came at the conclu- sion of nine days of hearings on the contract dispute between shopcraft workers and eight railways. It also followed union arguments that productivity increases justified a doubling of pay to employees. Arbitrator Mr. Justice Em- mett Hall has already heard testimony from non- operating rail workers and is due to begin hearings Tuesday dealing with trainmen. On George in- dustrial relations vice- president of Canadian National told the Remembrance 1973 A soldier p.uisci before the Virgin Holy Child in the rubble of the ancient of C.upiquet on the fringes ot Caen. 1944. Eaton's will remain closed on November in observance of Remembrance hearings he wondered why the unions were only asking for pay increases of 25 per cent and 25 cents an hour in view of their productivity argument. Offering an answer to his own Mr. Lach said the unions had backed off because they knew their argu- ment was defective. Shopcraft tradesmen earned an average hourly at ex- piry of their last contract on Dec. 1972. Parliament has legislated minimum increases that would bring the average to at the date of the last raise. CAN RAISE WAGE Justice Hall can raise the wage increases set by Parlia- ment if he sees fit. Pay increases sought by the unions would bring hourly wages to This includes a skill differential of 30 cents tor fully qualified journeymen. Mr. Lach told the hearings that wage and fringe benefit demands made by the shopcraft employees in bargaining would increase labor costs to the companies by 78.4 per cent over 1972. If the union calls for a 32- hour week were the increased labor cost would be more than 100 per he added. The cost would have to be absorbed in an industry in which 60 cents of every revenue dollar is spent on Mr. Lach said. LARGEST SEED The largest seed in the world is that of the double coconut or Coco de Mer. It weighs up to 40 pounds. By GEORGE KITCHEN UNITED NATIONS Some uneasiness and some voiced objections have been noted among UN members over the way the big powers have taken over the job of ending the Mideast war. Particularly among some smaller countries there is con- cern that arrangements nego- tiated by the big such as the six-point peace plan an- nounced Friday in tend to bypass the UN and the Security Coun- cil. At one news briefing this a correspondent asked pointedly whether Secretary- General Kurt Waldheim and the Security Council were still in charge of enforcing the ceasefire or whether bad taken over the job. The official UN reply was that Waldheim and the council are still in charge. The concern about UN pre- rogatives is accompanied by a tacit recognition that the United States and the Soviet as the backers and principal suppliers of weapons to the warring must play a dominant role if the Arabs and the Israelis ever are to be prodded into settling their differences. PRESSURE DISCLOSED A demonstration of big power influence came last week when Defence Minister Moshe Dayan frankly told the Israeli Parliament that Israel agreed to permit relief con- voys to reach the Egyp- tian soldiers trapped in the Sinai desert only under a threat of losing vital U.S. arms supplies. had no he adding that ad- vocating we run the war in a state of rupture with the United States is advocating that we can't possibly Equally telling on the Arab side must have been the three days Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin spent in Cairo in the early stages of the war trying to persuade the Egyptians to stop while they were ahead and use their successes as a lever for a favorable diplomatic settlement. It was shortly after this that the Egyptians joined the Is- raelis in agreeing to a Securi- ty Council spon- sored jointly by the U.S. and the Soviet calling for a ceasefire. Throughout the Security Council debates on the China protested vigorously against the dominant role be- ing played by the U.S. and derisively calling them and ac- cusing them of trying to manipulate the UN. But China did not use her veto saying this was out of deference for the wishes of the Arab countries. France protested mildly against the exclusion of the major Russia and the Middle East emergency force and called for a vote to strike out the prohibition. She lost. Britain also expressed hope the prohibition did not mean the major powers would be barred from playing a role in any UN force set up to safeguard any eventual peace settlement. Concern about the major moves being taken by the U.S. and Russia also were express- ed by some of the eight non- and members of the 15-state Security Council.
