Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -THc. LEtHBRIDQE Thursday, 12, 1974 Agency with a heart USC marks 30th year i OTTAWA (CP) "I wanted it to be an agency that was so personal that it wouldn't hurt to accept its says Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova, executive director of the relief agency she asked the govern- ment for permission to start in 1945. Now on the eve of its 30th anniversary, the Unitarian Service Committee of Canada (USC) operates more than 100 pro- jects in 13 countries on three continents. Non-denominational, non-political and non-racial, USC aims to help those in need, especially the young, to help themselves. "Children have always been closest to our hearts." Last year USC operated on a budget un- der million. To stretch these "friendship dollars" contributed annually by more than half a million Canadians, the agency relied on an army of volunteers overseas and in about 30 communities across the country. USC funds mainly come from private donations although the federal and British Columbia governments extend aid The agency also has to be "immensely she says. The initial task in any USC-aided country is to provide food and to increase native food production. Provision of health services, child care and family planning are second. Education, training and community devel- opment follow. Local staff always is employed to ad- minister USC projects. "We never send Canadians says Dr Hitschmanova, although she herself spends four months each year visiting USC projects. "There are capable people in each country who are only too anxious to help their own people if they are given the op- portunity." USC. with its partners overseas, acts as a catalyst to demonstrate the effec- tiveness and potential of various projects. And the basic USC philosophy appears to be successful. By next June, the agency will have pull- ed out of India where the largest number of USC projects currently are operated. Native agencies there now are ready to continue alone, says Dr. Hitschmanova. "We literally have worked ourselves out of our jobs there. And we are hoping that by 1978 we will be able to turn over all our Korean program to the Korean government."

Despite slow progress end product hopeful SEPTEMBER FOWLER'S WEEK-ENDS at the cottage, beach or resorts are often the most pleasant of the year.

Soothing and settling for adults and children, pleasant- tasting Dr. Fowler's has proven effective for over 6 generations of Canadians reason enough to keep Dr. Fo'-Ier's Extract on hand at all times! OTTAWA (CP) Rita Ca- dieux, chairman of a United Nations seminar on women's rights, said Tuesday that de- spite its slow progress she has high hopes for the end product. The seminar, which has at- tracted spokesmen from about 30 countries, ends here Sept 17. Early sessions were relatively low-key, consisting mainly of closed workshops. Open meetings to date have consisted largely of delegates explaining the legislative and other machinery their countries have for improving the status of women. Mme. Cadieux, head of the Canadian delegation and a 12- year veteran of the secretary of state's department, said the one obvious thing that has emerged from the seminar is that there is no simple solu- tion to the problem. The delegate from Ghana, Kate Abankwa, senior assis- tant secretary of her country's foreign affairs ministry, said countries like hers recognize the need for women's rights. "But we in the developing countries face different prob- lems altogether." she told an open session of the seminar Tuesday. She said a lack of necessary funds is an obvious problem, but there were others such as the need of farm families to keep children working at home instead of sending them off to school. Without education, she sug- gested, the cause of women's equality would remain stag- nated in third-world nations. Mme. Cadieux, when the seminar broke into two closed workshops for the rest of the day, said this is where the real work of the seminar is done.

MarkWaitas wffl be sent the original art lot ha quote Send your child's quotation to this paper OTTAWA (CP) -.Lt.-Gov. Pauline McGibbon of Ontario told a packed Women's Cana- dian Club luncheon Tuesday that she deplores the failure of most companies to appoint women to their boards. She said that of 150 Cana- dian manufacturing firms sur- veyed recently, only 79 bothered to reply; and of 947 directors, only three were women. Dr. McGibbon said this de- plorable situation likely reflects the picture in senior management of Canadian in- dustry. "The boardroom remains largely an exclusive men's preserve in Canada." She said she did not want women to be appointed to token directorships, but many Canadian women are fully qualified to become corporate directors. However, despite this par- ticular lack of progress, she felt that "a generation of women imbued with a new confidence is coming of age" and that the picture should im- prove.

It now was time for the moderate activists such as herself to continue striving for equality for women. Although she did not criticize governments directly for lack of action in this field, she observed that they "take time to move" and that changes "are not occurring as fast as you or I would like." Turning to women who prefer to "carve out a domestic she urged professional women not to sneer at housewives. f Club corner notes} Sweet Adelines, Lethbridge chapter, will present a special concert of harmony singing by the Calgary championship Chinook Winds Chorus, and the Nocturnes Quartet Satur- day at the Centre Village Mall.
