The women, who make a tola of six women in the 102-sea chamber, are Mme. Therese YWHires Program Director Casgrain and Mrs. A. E. Heath (L-British Senator Cameron quoted tensively from Kate Millett's book Sexual Politics, which says that in the United States women make lower wages than men and that job opportunities are not as great and women in pub- lic life are scarce. He said the U.S. situation is parallelled in Canada. There was only one woman, Grace Maclnnis. in the House of Commons, for example. Senator Cameron said he did not propose to hold Russia up as an ideal or an example. But it was interesting to note that in the early 1860s, 54 per cent of the doctors there were women. So were a large percentage of ;he engineers.

(CP) Alice McEvoy says there are no special problems in being a female contractor. Mrs. McEvoy, a widow and possibly the only female con- tractor in Alberta, says that after people get over the initial shock and "once they realize you know what you are talking it's just a matter of dealing with people. Getting into the construction business was a natural course of events for her after her hus- band died four years ago. Her husband, Thomas, had worked in the electrical field and owned some real estate as a sideline. Mrs. McEvoy had been a book-keeper before mar- riage. Years of helping her husband in his business fitted her for construction. She registered as limited company, A and S letters stand for Alice and sons. The sons are 11, 9 and 8. There are no steady employ- ees of the company. All the work is done through sub-con- tracts. Work can involve as many as 20 sub-contracts, de- pending on the project. Initial work involved rumpus rooms, roofs and renovations but A and S projects now are exclusively houses. STICKS TO LEDUC All the houses are in Leduc, a community 20 miles south of Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS WlULTILUXl Kdmonton. Sherwood Park is in suburban Edmonton, adjacent to the city's eastern boundary. Mrs. McEvoy buys lots from a real estate company which has already sold the proposed houses. Coming under Central Mortgage and Housing Corpora- tion, the homes are three-bed- room types ranging from to square feet. There are five floor plans, each named after a castle, the company's symbol. Mrs. McEvoy, an attractive woman, supervises the day-to- day work, keeps the workers supplied with materials and sees "that one doesn't get in the way of the other." She dons boots for her walk- ing around the muddy sites but refuses to wear jeans. She wears dresses and pant-suits to retain her femininity in a man's business.

The committee wants to make he public aware that recycling of garbage can restore much he waste to usable products. Proponents of the recycling principle are opposed to munici- dumps, where mounds of garbage offend both eves and noses. COMPOST HELPS The MacKays recommend set- ing up a family compost heap n the back yard. Food scraps, including meat and even tea >ags, can be built up to provide ertilizer for the garden.
