Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 31, J970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 15 Stock Exchange Blasted For Sex Discrimination LONDON (AP) - The London Stock Exchange-one of the world's most exclusive all-male institutions-came under fire here for sex discrimination. The attack came from the monopolies commission, which ruled that sex discrimination is a form of restrictive professional practice. Why, asked the commission, whose report on this state of affairs came out Thursday, shouldn't a woman be allowed to make a pound or two on the floor of the stock exchange? The commission said in its report: "The sex of the applicant for a place in a profession should not be a condition of entry unless-as is likely to be the case very rarely indeed' -there are particular circumstances in the profession or of the service that affords grounds for confining it to one sex." The commission noted that Lloyds, the hub of the world's insurance business, has relaxed its monastic claims to be all-male. Women are not allowed to do active business, but are allowed to share in the gains and losses provided they have �100,000 ($250,000) apiece to put in investment and reserves. The commission warned that it may require government action to end this state of affairs and others that lead to restrictive action. Expulsion Demanded LONDON (Reuter) - Two Conservative party members of Parliament today called for the expulsion of Bernadette Devlin from the House of Commons. The Northern Ireland independent, at 22 the youngest member of the British Parliament, returned to the House this week after serving four months in jail on charges relating to rioting in Londonderry last year. The two Conservatives, Tom Iremonger and Stanley Mc-Master, introduced a motion saying the House should not tacitly condone violent breaches of the peace for political motives by an MP and accordingly Miss Devlin should be expelled from the House. The motion, although unlikely to be debated because of pressure of parliamentary business, is an indication of the strong feeling among some conservative MPs about Miss Devlin's civil rights activities on behalf of Roman Catholics in troubled Northern Ireland. STILL POPULAR Facing a battle for re-election Abraham Lincoln posed in 1864 in Mathew Brady's studio for a campaign photograph. The result, described by his son Robert as a "most satisfactory likeness," appears today on $5 bills.

EASY RIDER - Living on the second floor could be troublesome for some cats who like to wander, but "Coffee" has it made. Whenever he wants in or out, he howls and either Mrs. Keith Bab-cock or her husband comes running to operate his special "elevator." The Babcocks, who are from Ottawa, are stationed at the Canadian Armed Forces base at Lahr, West Germany. Main Beefs Of French Quebecers By JOSEPH MacSWEEN MONTREAL (CP) - What are the main discontents of French Quebecers? It is significant that Premier Robert Bourassa has stressed- amid all the spectacular tribulations of Quebec at present-that he is according urgent priority to the province's economic problem. Many French-Canadian nationalists believe reforms can be brought about within Confederation, while others have opted i for separatism by constitutional and peaceful means. Members of the Front de Liberation du Quebec comprise only a fringe, advocating revolutionary overthrow of the system, but they speak of the same ills as the other groups. DOUBLE CONDEMNATION That is why some French-Canadian spokesmen couple condemnation of the FLQ with condemnation of the historical situation that has caused discontent. To some ears, their FLQ .^rictures thus may sound qualified. Here is a recapitulation of some of the factors mentioned by spokesmen: -The average salary of the French-Canadian in Quebec ranks 12th among 14 ethnic groups, with only Italians and Indians earning less. -Quebec is the only province where a unilingual English-Ca- Try Before You Buy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION (2) MAI CO SMITH-JONES HEARING AID SERVICE 618 3rd Ave. S. Phone 328-5447 nadian earns more than a bilingual one. -In Canada as a whole, the French-Canadian earns $1,000 less a year than the EngUsh-Ca-nadian. One economist and business leader reported that the Quebec situation which has put 1,000,000 new people on the labor market in a 15-year period is unsurpassed anywhere else in the world. MARKET FLOODED Heavily dependent on primary industry, Qi cbec lacks the job-producing potential of southern Ontario, for instance, and has not been able to absorb newcomers to the labor market at the rate of 70,000 a year. The traditional church-run educational system is often severely blamed for Quebec's lacks. But reform of the education system, taken over by the provincial government in the early 1960s, is causing new problems in a slow economy.

One authority estimated that perhaps 27,000 of these would get jobs in 1971, for instance, leaving an enormous surplus without jobs and without places in crowded universities. Besides, many of the students were opting for such careers as sociology rather than technical fields and would not add to Quebec's productive capacity in the material sense. These grad- utes would become "socially aggressive" If they could not find work in French in their native province. French-Canadians differ on whether the "socially agres-sive" or separatist attitude arises primarily from economic or cultural causes. Certainly a prime cause of discontent is the use of English as a working language in many plants where the majority of employees are French. l^inyland, WiareditL (^Sniuranc&j c�td.
