RICKERVIN, photo Discrimination in pension plan under attack For years, a few women's groups have been crying in the wilderness about inequities in pension plans without attracting much attention. A woman, they said, should be eligible to join a plan on the F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALL 6th Ave. A and 13th St. N.

She is statistically likely to live longer. She may get a lower pension than a man in an equivalent situ- ation. She should have the op- portunity to earn her full pay as long as a man. She should be able to assign pension benefits to a spouse without having to prove he is dependent. Men need not prove their wives' financial dependence. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press indicates changes are beginning to com- e. for a number of reasons. There are more women in the work force than ever before. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

There is an emphasis on human rights generally as well as women's rights par- ticularly. There is an increas- ing social concern for the wel- fare of the elderly. CPP GAVE IMPETUS There was also a practical impetus when the Canada Pension Plan came into ef- fect. Changes were made in private plans to match or mesh with its provisions. Nova Scotia and Alberta now have legislation to end discrimination in pension con- ditions. New Brunswick has two pension studies under way and Ontario has a committee looking at the question. The arguments centre on money, on cost and need. To work, pension plans must en- rol as many eligible people as possible. Insurance com- panies maintain women have been unwilling to pay the cost because they did not expect to stay in the work force until retirement. In 1972. the Manitoba Hu- man Rights Commission is- sued a review of insurance and pension plans in the light of the Human Rights Act- It urged employers to estab- IT'S EASY TQ PLAY PRICE INCLUDES month FREE music lessons FREE delivery YAMAHA Music Course with 60 popular numbers Q NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY Credit Terms Available A world of creativi- ty at your fingertips I One man auto rhythm band I YAMAHA spacious sound, reverb, reverb balance, vebrata pedal sustain i Headphone jack ex- tension. complete with earphones YAMAHA Model B4-cr 1199 .95 SUPPLIES LTD.

The Canadian Life Insur- ance Association replied that the "historical" grounds for disparities still hold. For in- stance, a widow is assumed to need her husband's pension. A widower is assumed to be self- supporting unless he can demonstrate dependency. ASSUMPTION OUTMODED On the other side, the On- tario committee on the status of women contended in a brief to the Ontario committee that such assumptions are out- moded. The brief said that in 1971, women were 32.8 per cent of the work force. Of these, 43 per cent were separated, di- vorced, widowed or single and many of the remaining 57 per cent presumably work be- cause their families need the money. David Howe, an actuary with William M. Mercer in Toronto, sees no problem in setting reasonable guidelines for giving women completely equal treatment and provid- ing some options, provided they are willing to join plans and pay on an equivalent basis. Mr. Howe said he is con- cerned that in pursuit of an ideal of equality, legislation might be passed that would make it impossible to offer any options in terms or types of plan. Elizabeth Neville, director of the Ontario Women's Bu- reau, said flexibility is one of the problems concerning the provincial committee. Its re- port is expected in the fall. AMENDMENT PASSED The Alberta legislature dealt with one of the issues THE BETTER HALF recently by passing an amend- ment requiring mandatory participation in the public ser- vice pension plan by married women who are fulltime employees. Alberta has two acts that prohibit discrimination based on sex or marital status, the Individual's Rights Protection Act and the Pension Benefits Act. Complaints go before the industrial relations board. Nova Scotia passed com- prehensive legislation last spring.

But last summer, as I was sprawled out on the bed with a whodunit, just about to find out who shot the parson. I heard a peculiar noise at the window. Seconds later a head popped through, followed by tee-shirt and jeans. "1 couldn't make you hear. Ma. So I decided to see if you were okay. Are you Looking around for a new hidey-hole, 1 found a space behind a bush growing against the back wall of the house. For a while I would sneak behind the bush with my book, but it was too good to last, of course. The end came with rather a spectacular crash and a loud yell of indignation. "Nobody told me the storm window was still in." hollered one of my sons, as he crawled out of a basement window onto the back lawn in a shower of glass. "It's fire prevention week, Ma. so we're checking up on our fire safety. You don't have a thing to worry about in the basement, we can get out any time." As I tweezed slivers of glass out of his stomach. I started nagging in a motherly sort of way about who was going to pay for the window. He was cut to the quick. "Don't you know I could get burned to death down there when the furnace explodes." he demanded. "If your crummy old window means more to you than me.

Gradually I became con- scious of some scratchy noises'out in the hall, along with smothered giggling. Then "Charge." bellow- ed my youngest daughter, swinging open the bathroom door and galloping triumphantly over to the tub. screwdriver at the ready. "Look." she hollered, wav- ing the screwdriver under my nose. "The boys showed me how to pick the lock this after- noon. Aren't I Actually.

Every morning at eight (almost eight, I dash out of the house, hop into my car and drive off to a serene little world of my own, where the only noise is the gentle clanking of teletype machines, the restful clatter of 18 or 20 typewriters and the tranquil racket of two dozen telephones.

Glenda Kemp. 24, South Af- rica's leading stripper, put on her act Tuesday night for a Dutch dredger crew in a barn at remote Blue Water Bay. The men had threatened to go on strike because there was no entertainment near where their dredger is employed. Miss Kemp promised to strip if the men promised not to go on strike.
