Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Life need not be downhill after 30 WINNIPEG (CP) A United States sociologist said Tuesday that North American society must plan for flexibili- ty in individual lives in place pf the current rigid segmenta- tion of life stages. Helena, Lopata, chairman of the sociology department at Loyola Univer- sity in Chicago, said Canadians "and Americans haven't adjusted their life pacing to cope with greater life expectancy. Speaking to a session on ag- ing at the Winnipeg Centennial Symposium on the Dilemmas of Modern Man, she said it is no longer necessary to cram most major events into a small segment of the in- dividual life span. The dominant pattern of life has had the period up to 30 years for men as a time of education, choice, marriage', fatherhood and set- tlement into a home, she said. For women, it was a time for education, finding a husband and withdrawing from society. For both sexes, the stretch from age 30 to 65 usually is characterized by "rather un- eventful and often monotonous Dr. Lopata said, and the years after retirement are filled with difficulties: Retirement may be traumatic for men who-ideiv tified closely with their cupation and who still con- sider themselves healthy, competent and willing to work, she said. For women, who live longer than men, there were the strains of widowhood. Later, at a news conference, Dr. Lopata said there is ho reason why all women in North American society should be pressured to bear children at age 22, for ex- ample, when they actually have a long period of child- bearing potential. Dr. Nathan Shock, chief of the Gerontology Research Centre at Baltimore, told the session the Soviet Union's In- stitute of Gerontology in Kiev is working on extending the reproductive span of women, but he said there are biological .limits. Mothers aged 40 or more were more likely to have children with birth defects. Dr. Shock said there was sharp rise in the average U.S. life span between 1900 and 1970, but in the 1960s, the average life for white males only increased to 68 years from 67.4, and for white females to 75.6 years from 74.1. Sir Ferguson Anderson, pro- fessor of geriatric medicine at the University of Glasgow, said there should be more education for elderly people to help them cope with retirement, and more part- time employment oppor- tunities for persons aged 60 to 74 years. He said retraining courses might be offered to persons aged 55 "so that within the same skill or ocupation. part- time employment might be made available if desired, for as long as the individual wishes to work." Wcdittfdty, October 30, LETHBRIDQE HERALD Pensions legislation returned to Commons with minor amendment Mangels million settlement DETROIT (AP) A man whb suffered burns over 60 per cent of his body in a collision with a gasoline truck has re- ceived million in an out- ofcourt settlement. The 31-year-old Wayne County man, whose identity kept secret under terms of the agreement, suffered the burns in February, 1971, when a gasoline truck toppled on his car on a Detroit-area road. Circuit court Judge Thomas Roumell said he believes the settlement was one of the largest of its kind. OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons health committee Tues- day night breezed through legislation to amend 'the Canada Pension Plan, originally introduced in the last session of Parliament, and sent the bill back to the Commons' with one minor amendment. the bill died on the order paper in May when the government fell on a budget- debate vote. The amendment would en- large the Pension Appeals Board to a maximum of eight from the present four members, a move required to make the board more ef- ficient, Health Minister Marc Lalonde told the committee, All appeal board members are judges of federal or supe- rior courts and often are busy when appeals are waiting to be heard. The large number appointed to the board would make it easier to get a quorum of three, he said. Heath Macquarrie said bis party supported the bill but would like to see it extended to coyer housewives. Stanley Knowles (NDP-Winnipeg North Centre) echoed Mr. Mac- quarrie's call and added that he would continue to crusade until the pension plan covered all women and was available to contributors at age 60 rather than the present 65. Mr. Lalonde said his depart- ment still was considering changes that might eventually include not only housewives but divorcees, now not covered by the plan. Among other things, the bill would amend the pension plan so members of certain religious groups, such as Hutterites and Amish Men- nonites, could exclude themselves from the plan.
