Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedneicloy, Seplember 22, 1971 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Tenant power' runs aground TORONTO (CP) Attempts to organize Canada's public housing residents and promote "tenant power" have run aground. The chief obstacle is a lack ol money, and prospects for ob- taining the necessary funds ap- pear Weak. That was the picture painted this week by two tenant repre- sentatives who met last week- end in Ottawa with officials of the Canadian Labor Congress, Central Mortgage and Housing Corp., and Robert Andras, min- ister without portfolio responsi- ble for housing. June Lendrum, mother of five and a tenant in a 102-unit hous- ing project in Thunder Bay, and Mike Carson, a tenant organizer in east Toronto, were two of five tenant representatives at UK meeting. They said the tenant delega- tion had hoped to obtain in grants to hire an organizer and assistant and open an office in Ottawa. But they received a vague promise for FEEL TIME WASTED "It's really said Mrs. Lendrum. "I feel we wasted three days going all the way to Ottawa." "They are just playing games with said Mr. Carson. They said the group wanted to spur the formation of tenant as- sociations in every- housing pro- ject in Canada and enable ten- ants U> participate in planning and administering housing de- velopments. The tenant delegation was formed in May at the first na- tional conference of public hous- ing tenants held hi Ottawa. Mrs. Lendrum said CLC rep- resentalives told the delegation it was "very broke" and unable to provide the tenants with the they had requested. She said an additional had been sought from CMHC but the delegation was told no more than could be made available and even that was uncertain. Mrs. Lendrum said she thought the labor group "would have at least shown more inter- est in what we are trying to do." Mr. Carson, a former union organizer, said he was "astounded" at labor's reply. A CLC official said in an in- terview no firm indication of support for Ihe tenants had been given at the meeting, but added that no final decision has been made. Mrs. Lendrum said Mr. An- dras seemed "very anxious to help but that housing offi- cials were cool to their plans. I Mr. Carson said officials I seemed concerned that the ten- 1 ants' union, if formed, would cause trouble for provincial housing officials, particularly in Ontario where most of Canada's public housing is located. Automated trading system planned NEW YORK (AP) The New York Stock Exchange says that within three months it will start testing an automated trading system which would permit, cus- tomers to place orders and re- ceive reports on their execution in the same telephone call. The system is a pilot program approved by the NYSE board of governors last week in an effort to make greater use of automation on the trading floor. Fully implemented, the auto- mated trading system would in- volve a computer interacting with exchange trading special- ists and receive and execute; ICO-share market orders and: produce trade reports. Specialists would provide the system with quotes and size for their stocks and brokerage houses would transmit their j 100-share market orders di-! rectly into (lie computer or to an exchange clerk who would relay them to the computer. As each incoming order is re- ceived, the exchange said, the computer would automatically execute it against the special- ist's quote. After executing the order, the computer would auto- matically update the size con- nected with the quotes, notify the firm involved to the execu- tion and tell the specialist of his part in the trade. The exchange said the system would make it possible for a customer "to telephone his reg' istered representative, place an order, have the order transmit- ted to the exchange floor and executed and receive a report on the execution, all in the same phone call." Exchange spokesmen said the pilot program would involve trading in 100-share blocks of selected stocks. If successful, the pilot could lead to full im- plementation of an automated system by late 1973. Nixon runs into trouble over tax credit policies WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon has run into trouble over his anti-inflation policies in Congress, where the House of Representatives ways and. means committee decided not to back a two-level form of invest- ment tax credit. Nixon had proposed a 10-per- cent credit immediately, drop- ping to five per cent after a year. But the commiliee de- cided it would vote for a straight percentage rate. How- ever, the exact rate had not been agreed upon. As the setback was disclosed on Capitol Hill, the administra-1 tion announced it was acting to TOP SINGER Toronto's Neil YoiinR, 2G, has hern voted best mnle solo singer nml lop composer o[ Hip ycnr in nn pop mu- sic poll compiled liy Melody Maker, Ilrllnln's lending pop newspaper.

The funds are part of those author. ized by a new public service job law, opening jobs of police fire- men and other public services to the unemployed. As the labor department moved on the employmenl front, the Cost of Living Council acted to get maximum mileage out of President Nixon's deci- sion to cut the dollar loose from its tie with gold. The council ruled Monday that import-price increases caused by the erosion of the dol- lar's value can be passed to consumers without violating the wage-price freeze. The result will be to make foreign goods sold in the United States even less attractive to buyers. The 10 per cent supple- mentary import levy has also increased the price of foreign goods. Under Nixon's monetary ac- tion, the dollar has lost value in foreign exchange markets and the currencies of other countries have been revalued, in effect, increasing the prices of foreign exports. No increase by CP Rail MONTREAL (CP) CP Rail has no immediate plans to in- crease passenger fares, a spokesman said today. He was commenting on a CNR announcement Tuesday flint ils fares will be going up hv as much as 15 per cent effective Oct. 1. CP Rail last increased its fares June I, by an average of II per cent.

Consumer Affairs Minister I Ron Basford had been informed of the request.

Mr. Trudeau's telegram said the government "is greatly con- cerned with Uie possible loss of many jobs."

EDMONTON (CP) Women should have equality in job op- portunities and wages, dele- gates to the Canadian Union of Public Employees' Convention decided Tuesday. The 700 delegates approved a resolution asking that the na-1 tional executive report on the status of women in the union be accepted. j Based on the report of the royal commission on the status of women, the report acknowl- edged there is discrimination against women within CUPE. It recommended that women be given representation on the union executive and commit-, tees according to their num-1 bers. Also, women should receive equal pay for equal work, equal job opportunities and maternity leave with pay. Union day care centres were suggested. POSITIVE ACTION Grace Hartman, national sec- retary tresaurer, said CUPE always has had a policy of at- tempting to deal with special group interests within the un- ion, but had got around to deal- ing with women members' rights only recently. She noted that about 50 per cent of the union's membership are wom- en, but. only 20 per cent of dele- gates attending the convention were women. Delegates who spoke to the resolution were in favor of it and most emphasized that posi- tive action must be taken to implement the rccommcnda- lions. E. P. Huggetl of Toronto said implementing its intent would be a difficult job. Women tra- ditionally have been subordin- ate to men and "I suspect the male ego depends on this sub- ordination." Men expect women to be housewives and mothers and if the policy is to be implemented effectively, it is men who will have to make a determined ef- fort to accept women as equals, ho said. Shirley Omvealu of Hamilton said women must be brought to a point where they believe they are equal. "Men have boon the world leaders and look at the present 1 bad state of affairs. Wo m n n should be given an equal oppor-: tunity to fail." j Each union local should es-j tablish committees to educate male members about problems facing sister members, said Kealey Cummings of Toronto, i Education programs also should be organized at the union level to prepare women for their new equal role in society. Audrey Morrison of Sudbury said she doubted whether the idea of equality for women could be legislated. Most men and women are comfortable in their present social positions and it will take a concerted joint effort to make true equal- ity a reality. An earlier resolution asking that the union insist on the prin- ciple of equal pay for equal work be a part of negotiations with management also was passed. Lucy Nicholson of St. Cath- arines said women were not asking the union to accept this right, they were demanding it.

Adding a glove compartment may seem to be a small thing. The fact is that having one was a big thing for a lot of people, so we are happy to oblige. The 1972 Vega also boasts an engineering modification. The exhaust system has been improved. And that's about it as far as the dif- ference between a '72 Vega and a '71 is concerned. And that's the way its always going to be. We'll only change Vega to make it better. (A policy designed to keep up the value of your Vega, no matter what year it happens to be.) So the '72 Vega story is not what's changed, but what's stayed the same. Outside, the '72 is the image of the '71. Pert, eager-looking, with lines a lot of other cars must envy. And the whole neat little package sits very comfortably on an easy-to-handle, 97-inch wheelbase. Inside, you'll still find front bucket seats and powered flow-thru ventilation. There's a full double-panel steel roof. And a host of GM safety features, includ- ing side-guard door beams. The 1972 Vega also sports that unique engine. Over- head cam, 4 cylinders and 2300 cubic centimeters. It's light so it can be big, giving you very snappy acceleration and "no-strain" performance up long steep hills and over 8-lane freeways. Because Vega is such a. going con- cern, stopping has to be very sure. Big, 10' disc brakes up front for sure. There's something else you get from Vega: choice. The standard Vega is the 2-door Sedan, but you might prefer the Hatchback Coupe, Kammback Wag- on, or if you're after a little business, the Panel Express truck. But no matter which Vega you buy, and no matter how you buy is (which is or lavish it with options and special know how we feel about it: We want your 1972 Chevy Vega to be the best car you've ever owned.
