Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBHIDQE October Population pressures cemeteries SINGAPORE (Reuter) Population pressures in land- scarce Singapore are affecting both the living and the dead. Cemeteries are being replaced by crematoria in some cases to make room for parkland and other uses as the government encourages peo- ple to cremate their dead rather than bury them. The pressure for space "arises from the fact that tiny Singapore an island republic of 225 square miles at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula has a population, of more than two million Chinese, Malays, Indians and Pakistanis. Amid an industrial boom, the government is expanding one crematorium, in opera- tion since 1959, and planning two new ones. More than' a dozen cemeteries are being closed.

Elaine Cooper and Maralyn Rice, both graduates of the fourth program in the Lethbridge Community College "Contemporary Women" series, say gaining awareness of their worth as individuals was one of the most rewarding experiences they've ever had. With seven classmates, the. two will be honored at a CW graduation luncheon at LCC on Friday. Since its inception last year, 38 women have taken the CW course. Funded under the Alberta Vocational Training program, and co ordinated by the College, the CW series is designed to give single parents a chance to broaden their horizons and realize what opportunities are open to tfiem. With the co operation of social workers from the department of health and" social development, women between the ages of 18 and 25 are- recommended for the program. "The program is available to women on assistance sup- porting-their families alone who want to upgrade themselves and become in- volved with the community says Social Worker Maureen Horon. courses are not necessarily geared to getting women into the working force since many of the participants still have young children at home they prefer to care she adds LET SELF 'GO' "The problem says Maralyn Rice, speaking with new found confidence, "that when you're a woman on your own, you let yourself go. You don't keep up your interests or appearance. You get depressed, and you're no good to yourself or your family" "Contemporary Women opened so many doors for me it helped me to look inside myself and see what I was. And now I have confidence, I know what community vices are available to me and I .am not shy about using them. A widow with three children, Mrs. Rice says her family is amazed at the change in her. "One of the most important things I did as part of the program was to gain work she reports. "I served as a volunteer at the YMCA, teaching pre schoolers crafts, and music. And they asked me to come back again. I never knew I had such skills to LEARNED SELF DEFENSE, "Prior to taking the (Contemporary Women) course, I would just let people steam roll alfover says Elaine Cooper. "I wouldn't stand up for my own rights. Then, the support of the other women in the program made me realize I was an important person too." With her new found grit, Mrs. Cooper did something few of us would have courage 'to do: she represented herself.

GROUP LEARNING "The group learns from one says'CW coor- Sharon Gibb. "If you're outside the group, you can't understand the bond between the members. And that relationship continues even after the course is over." Mrs. Gibb says that there is no set curriculum for the program, just a geveral set of 40 topics from which the par- ticipants may chose subjects most valuable to them. The program is operated three days a week (at the YWCA) for an week period, with day care service provid- ed for participants' children. The fifth program, begins Oct. 21 and ends Dec. 12. "We have had excellent co operation from businesses and social service agencies in the adds Mrs. Gibb "We had over 33 volunteer resource people in the last program."

By JUDY KLEMESRUD New York Times News Service NEW YORK She is young, she is single, she is a New Yorker. And she is usual- ly pictured in one of two ways: as a swinging, sexy girl, dressed to the nines and ready for a night out on the town with the man'she hopes to eventually as a hard-driving career woman in avuftor glasses who has little, or no, time for menT One or the other. Black and white. No grays. Both ways of life definitely exist in New York, and both have their adherents. But ac- cording to a dozen young un- manned New York women who were picked at random to talk-about their lives and their views of New York men, the "swinging life" is too super- ficial, and the career-oriented life is too lonely. Somewhere in between, there is bliss, they say. Now, if only they could meet some men. Almost to a woman, those questioned said they had strong feelings that there were vastly more eligible single women than men in New York, even though cen- sus statistics snow that the odds are in a woman's favor in every borough except Manhat- tan, where there are single women, according to statistics, and only fewer single men. "Oh, the men are out there said Brenda Workman, a financial house organ editor in her early 30's. "But because so many people are isolated in their jobs in this city, yon have to take aggressive efforts to meet them" Miss Workman, who lives on Manhattan's west side, near Columbia University, has her own method of meeting them. She has placed ads about herself in a dating magazine called The Black Bock, and in the last decade has gone oat with more than 300 men as a result. She has met an ad- ditional 39 men through com- puter dating Although she has had 13 "mostly uninteresting" marriage proposals and strongly wants to get married and have Miss Workman said she was somewhat reluctant to do so because of a "fear of divorce." This fear was one area where most of the 12 women agreed. They also had several other things in common, including a loathing of singles' bars as a place to meet men, a belief that New-York men are wary of getting involved in and contempt for the so-called "one-night stands." Some areas where the women differed were whether they would consider having children without being married (five said yes, seven said whether they should offer to pay their share of an evening (eight said yes, four said and whether they should call men for dates (seven said yes, five said after you see your doctor bring your prescription to miUHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIWMIIIIl Save up to 25% on Hind Crafted Danby Oven-to-Tableware and Glassware Now you can buy the dinncrwarc you've always dreamed of and save money while you're doing it For a limned time only you can make grcal when you purchase original Ocnby Oven Jo TaMcwarc Deigned lo enhance any dining occasion from the casual to the elegantly formal Only Dcnby often you afl plus a guarantee against breaking, cracking and crazing in normal home use.
