Association Women's Lib too narrow, say spokesmen SASKATOON (CP) The possibility that the Women's Liberation Movement in Can- ada might be narrow-minded was raised by two spokesmen for the organization during the weekend. Marlene Dtem of Montreal and Peggy Morton of Toronto were addressing 200 delegates to the movement's first nation- al conference. Miss Dixon said many mem- bers of the movement are not interested in protesting Injus- tice unless it affects them di- rectly. "Not all women are our sis- she said. "I can't be a part of tins anymore. We must become opposed to all forms of the exploitation. Women most exploited." She called on members to revolt system she said is based on the dollar. "That which you desire for yourself, you take. When you are truly struggling for libera- tion then you'll reach the real- ity that the best servant of the people is the person that is a revolutionary." Lack of safe car seats sets off public crusade By JEAN SIIABP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) A few months ago a three-moath-old baby died in a car accident. There was no highway speed involved it happened on the way home from the supermar- ket. No one else was even badly shaken. The baby ws3 on someone's movement lap in the front seat, and its against a fragile skull was smashed when the force of a minor col- lision sent it flying out of the passenger's arms. For Joy Moon it was a trag- edy that turned a private worry into what she hopes will be- come a public crusade. Mrs. Moon didn't know the idiild, or its family.

The new minister, ordained Sunday in a ceremony at the University of Maryland chapel, said her new role is not a blow for women's liberation and that she did not seek the ministry to prove a woman could suc- ceed in this field. Miss Plate, a 30-year-old, curly-haired brunette, has served for five years as assist- ant Lutheran chaplain at the university. Rev. Paul M. Orso, president of the Maryland Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, performed the ordination. The congregation, which nearly filled the chapel, included officials of all branches of American Lu- theranism and representatives of several oilier church bodies.

She read it after she and her husband had spent long, frustrating weeks trying to find a safe car seat for Jonathan, now 2V4, and a safe car bed for the baby soon to be born. What they learned during their search has upset Mrs. Moon badly enough wants everyone who that she is inter- ested to join her in an effort to prevent more needless deaBis. She wants safe car beds and seats to be avialable, designed to fit children of every age. There are gaps now. She wants government regulations setting standards. She wants more peo- ple to know about and to use the seats that are available. Anyone who wants to help can get in touch with her through the Consumers' Asso- ciation of Canada, 100 Gloucest- er Street, Ottawa. Letters should be addressed to Child Safety Seats so the GAC can handle them quickly. Mrs. Moon said their family search for a safety seat began when Jonathan was 10 months old, "We were going on holidays and lie was beginning to climb out of the standard car bed things, so we decided to buy him a car seat. "When we went to the store my husband was horrified. For one thing, he said the seat that hooks over the- back of a car seat would just pop off in an accident. "The sales woman showed us the kind with runners that slide under the back of the car seat. We might have bought one of those, but they have a head rest. If you pushed, into the foam covering, you could feel the {joints of the screws that held it to the frame and yon didnt' have to push very far."

It resulted in their discover- Ing there are no enforceable standards govering the manu- facture of car beds and seats for children. Standards are being written for the United States and were due to be pub- lished in January, 1971. DU' there has been a delay. The call also resulted in an Invitation to a seat belt semi- nar sponsored by the Ontario department of transport. At the seminar, Mrs. Moon asked a panelist about the ef- ficiency of the seat harness and was told that in a collision it might crush a small child's chest. Mrs. Moon said Dr. Donald Huelke, professor of anatomy at the University of Michigan, told her there is no really effi- cient safety seat or safety belt for a child who is out of the bassinet but not yet tall enough to sit 19 inches high. She said the Fort Tot-Guard was recommended for a child who does sit that tall, along with a General Motors infant safety bassinet for babies. The moons now have both but only after a lot of trying. Mrs. Moon found that dealers for both companies said they had never heard of the safety devices. One said he had had a Tot-Guard once but sent it back to the company because BO otie ever asked about it. Eventually, through B friend who knows the car business, the Moons located a dealer willing to look it up in the ca- talogue and order one for them. Ford's public relations de- partment in Canada sent Mrs. Moon a letter saying they had sold 97 from March, 1968, to December, 1968, and 184 from January to October of 1970. Another 20 were on order. The 1966 census showed children four years old and aider in Canada. Mrs, Moon has talked to doc- tors and anyone else who could give her background material. She has written letters to news- papers, called government de- partments, car manufacturers and the CAC. Now she wants to find other people willing to do the same or able to supply her with more information. Ann Landers DEAE ANN LANDERS: Why can't married cHMren leave their parents alone?

Others placed their hands over their hearts. Some people didn't know their hearb are on the left side. Half the people I watched didn't know the words. They faked it or didn't sing at all.
