She said no union has eve gone on strike for matern i L pay, in-plant day care or equa pay. Women had little weight i collective bargaining commit tees. About <10 men and 15 women listened. The men includec about 10 trade union represen tatives on the council. Jim Perma.

"That's what you wanted to Miss Macots said coolh An attractive blonde about to have her first child, she is mar- ried to James Laxer but prefers to use her maiden name. A research assistant at Queen's University, Kingston, she criticized Queen's for a rule :hat women are supposed to re- sign when six months pregnant. How could there be such a rule at a time when many woik ng women with children were self-supporting? Toronto law professor Dfis- nond Morton commented on Vliss Maeots' pro p o s a 1 that party structures be altered to ;ive women a 50-50 representa- ion and to ensure that women re candidates not just in seats liat are sure losses anyway. He said B r i t a i r' s Liberal party gave the women 50-50 rep- esentation in 1919 and the Con- ervative party the same hi 923. The NDP had to face the fact didn't have the support of in general.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: In regard to your answer to M. J. M. approving of vasectomy: that's dandy! But what about people who lose their children in an accident or a disaster? Once a man has that operation, his fathering days are finished. And consider, please, another possibility this one comes straight out of my own life, I was a widow with one child. I married again last year and am now pregnant. If it were the other way around, and my husband had lived instead of me, I would want him to rebuild his life with another woman and have more children. I, too am concerned about the population explosion, but I don't believe the male operation is the answer for every- one. From Kentucky. DEAR KEN: Neither do I nor did I say it was. It is my personal opinion that no man under 35 should consider the operation unless he is certain he would not want more children under any conceivable set of circumstances.

PHONE 337-5771 Montessori Method Returns To Favor By EUWA1SD MAORI ROME (AP) In a way, Maria Montessori was 100 years ahead of her time. The centenary of the birth of the influential educationist, one of the greatest feminists in his- tory, was marked in August. Eighteen years after her death, the Montessori method of teaching young children is enjoying a strong revival in many countries, even the homeland which onco ostra- cized her. During a time when Italy suppressed its women almost totally she broke new ground for females in professional life. At a time when the Homan Catholic Church prac- tised harsh discipline, she was an unwed mother and a chal- lenger of the concept of orig- inal sin. At a time of ascend- ant fascism, she was a cham- pion of individual liberty, and a foe of social prejudice.. Even the Communists hated Miss Montessori. They said her educational thought was a horrific product of capitalism. Today the Italian govern- ment and ethers subsidize Montessori schools, although the majority of Italians do not know what the -Montessori method means. ISSUE STAMP The centenary of her birth was marked by little more than the issuance of a postage stamp, and a scholarly con- g r e s s of educationists in Rome. Miss Montessori was born Aug. 31, 1870, in Chiaravalle, a little town near the Adriatic Sea. She learned to do battle against established thought early in her adult life. Against her parents' wishes, she enrolled in Rome Univer- sity's all-male medical school. In. 1894 she became Italy's first woman doctor. Male prejudice prevented any bet- ter job, at first, than that of looking after children in a madhouse. But this started Miss Montessori on a lifetime career. Under her tutelage, re- tarded children began reading and writing better than "nor- mal" children, for whom she eventually opened a school in a 'working-class neighborhood. Soon tiiey were showing phe- nomenal learning results too. As her fame spread, educa- tionists began drifting in from other countries to inspect the House of Children, as the Montessori school was called. Miss Mpntessori trained teachers to step down and mingle with children. She worked with small tables and chairs, informally arranged, rather than austere desks and aisles. The method was in- tended to give the child maxi- mum freedom within a con- trolled environment to de velop his own capabilities, through self-motivation. Miss Montessori challenged the concept of unquestioned child obedience, charging: "Never were any slaves so much the property of their roaster as the child is of the adult." Soon Miss Monlessori ran up against her first big oppo- Vatican. When, un- married, she gave birth to a child, it drew the church's ire. The teacher never made a se- cret of her unmarried state and expressed pride in her son, Mario Montessori, who now heads the Montessori In- ternational Association in Hol- land. Jesuits attacked her method as ignoring the Roman Catho- lic belief that man from birth is marked by fundamental sin. As the church gradually be- came more 'open socially, it dropped its stern disapproval of the Montessori method, but even today the nuns who run many of Italy's nursery schools express disdain of the Montessori method. Yet some Homan Catholic universities in the United States and elsewhere helped in the present revival of the method by setting up Montes- sori research centres. Dictator Benito Mussolini forced Miss Montessori to leave Italy in 1934. She went to Spain and later to India, and finally settled in Holland. So well-known is Miss Mon- tessori in India'that the New Delhi government has pro- claimed year-long centenary celebrations. Italy has 178 Montessori nursery or elementary schools but some of these are private- ly-run schools and Montessori in name only. T here are long-standing, though now no-longer wide- spread, criticisms against lira method. One is that its ap- proach to leaching is too un- disciplined, and that it stresses individualism over group co-operation.

There are two-speed automatic small cars. And there are big-car automatic transmissions awkwardly stuffed into small cars. To us, none of these makes sense. Which is why we developed the Datsun 3600 automatic It's a three-speed automatic trans- mission that's designed to work with Datsun 1600's gear ratios. To put it simply, the transmission is en- gineered to match the engine's performance. It sounds logical enough, but it isn't true of every car. We took a lot of trouble to make sure our automatic transmission didn't rob the engine of horsepower. We were careful to see that the difference in gas mileage was hardly appreciable and that Datsonl600's performance remained just as sharp. After all, Datsun 1600 has won more inter- national rallies than any car in its class, so it has a reputation to maintain. An automatic transmission is usually an option We mnke a great sticfcshift, and it sells for a bit less. But in today's traffic conditions, Datsun 1600 automatic makes so much sense, that maybe we ought to make the stickshift the option.
