The 14t.h Amendment was ra- tified in llllil! as part of the legal process designed lo ensure that the states did not override the rights of newly-freed Negroes. Tlie court tins used it frequently to strike at racial discrimina- tion. Ironically, shortly affer the court announced its decision Monday, a proposed constitu- tional amendment lo guarantee women equal rights was re- jected by a Senate judiciary subcommittee. In its place the subcommittee ana out of t, invalidaling an Idaho law that gave men preference over in being named to ad- minister estates. But under the decision, if a state legislature decides to treat women differently from men it have to come up with an "objective" reason.

(CP) Getting j up in front of the class to speak was the hardest thing to learn for 12 Indian women, represen- tatives of their rcs-rves, who attended a course in teaching household management. "Taking leadership is our big- gest said Connie Rabbit Carrier, smiling a little self-consciously during Ihe last session of the five-day course. "We had trouble at first talk- ing to the group, but there has been a lot of improvement." The course, a joint project of the Alberta agriculture depart- ment and the federal Indian af- fairs department, was part of a scries of week-long courses to prepare the women to help dis- trict home economists teach home management classes on the reserves. Barbara Stroh, home econo- mist from Camrcse. co-ordi- nated the program, which in- cluded sewing, cooking, budget- ing, nutrition, family life and leadership courses. The women, who came from Ihe reserves south of Edmon- ton, were mostly chosen from of Edmonton, provincial home economist. The women will be mainly re- sponsible for organizing women's courses on the re- serves, providing transportation and finding facilities, she said. In most cases, a district home economist will teach some of the classes, with the Indian women holding practical work sessions. "Some of the older ladies don't know how to speak Eng- said Geraldine Wolf of Cardslon. "Weil interpret and explain things." The Indian affairs department is arranging to pay the women for their work in the communi- ties, Mrs. Macdonald said.' During the course, which was held at a residential school on this reserve 60 miles east of Calgary, the women made a shopping expedition as part of their budgeting and manage- ment course. They set up a bul- letin board showing some of the things they learned about com- parative shopping and prices. They found standard grades are cheaper hut just ss nutri- tious as fancy grades in canned goods, for example. Skim milk powder for cooking is less than half the price of homogenized milk powder. They also found that co-oper- ative bulk buying would save money. During the week, the class prepared all its own meals, said Mrs. Stroh. Each woman made a Etrctch-and-sew garment and knitted a pair of slippers. The women, m o s t of whom are married with families of up to seven children, expressed satisfaction with the develop- ment of their practical skill in sewing and cooking.

And they do it better than any other sauce you can use. That's becauso Swift Sauces are complete in themselves. They're a blend of choice ingredients made to cook right along with meat so even economical cuts come out tasty and tender and juicy down to the last bite. Swift sauces are zippier than condensed soups. Easier than soup or dry sauce mixes. All you do is add the meat and let it soak up that great flavour. Why not try an idea that's really different.
