Quebec Safety League. "Commercials schools don't care about motor safety or rules of the said Paul Leboeut in a recent interview. "All they care about is selling lessons." Although provincial govern- ments require that commer- cial driving schools be li- censed, they generally do not require that each instructor hold a teaching permit. "Often the commercial in- structors arc men who just teach in their spare time, to earn a little extra said Mr. Leboeut. Dealers provide the cars and the instructors are paid "about for the first three hours of lessons, for Ihe next couple of hours, maybe lor the sixth and seventh lessons, and so on." "Naturally they want to sell as many lessons as they can. But it's the schools, not the in- structors, who are making the real money." JUDGMENT LACKING Most schools offer a maxi- mum of one hour ot driving rules and theory and the re- maining time is spent behind the wheel, steering and turn- ing corners. "Steering the car is noth- said Mr. Leboeuf. "Visit any farm area and you'll see seven-year-olds driving the tractor. They don't have any trouble steering; it's the judg- ment they lack." Such youngsters were simi- lar to persons who drove cars without a thorough knowledge of the rules, courtesies and customs of the road. The safety league, spon- sored by numerous large firms whose employees drive trucks and cars, offers a 27- hour driver-training course for Only six hours are spent behind the wheel. The other 21 .hours are taken up with tests of a driv- er's vision and reflexes, his judgment in varied situations, his knowledge of highway reg- ulations, the mechanical as- pects of a car's operation and even how to fill out an acci- dent report. "You'd be surprised at how many people don't know what information to get from the other drivers involved in an Mr. Leboeuf said. Besides testing and instruct- ing drivers for the Montreal post office, Bell Canada and several insurance firms, the league provides training for high school teachers who plan lo offer similar courses to stu- dents after school. Members of the public are also invited lo take the league course, the only one recog- nized by the Canadian Under- writers Association. Rates for teen-agers arc reduced to Study Of Women A College Course NEW YORK (AP) "It's about says Betty Frie- dan, the American feminist, 'we studied her story instead of history." A growing number of Ameri- can colleges and universities will be doing just that tlu's fall, offering a wide range of courses on female studies. From San Diego Slate, one of the first with a woman's studies program, to small Midwestern colleges that offer one course on women's history, the subject of women has become a part of :he curriculum. College directors give credit :o co-operation among students, faculty and women's liberation groups in organizing many of the courses. "The university must deal with current issues and prob- says Dr. Warren Car- rier, dean of arts and letters at San Diego State Unversity. "Sex- discrimination and related is- sues are certainly a proper area of study today." San Diego's program has 10 courses, including such topics 'or study as The Status of Women, Human Sexuality and Selfactualization of Women. WILL GET CREDITS Most of the courses that will e available al almost 100 col- .eges will bo for fall credit lead- ing to degrees, though several colleges also plan non-credit seminars. A sampling of campuses :hroughout the U.S. indicates hese courses available on women: Bryn Mawr -will feature Kate Millet, author of the new best- seller, Sexual Politics, teaching one class a week on a historical and social survey of the role of women. Barnard College, which for 'ive years has taught the His- .017 of American Women, will include Feminism in France as a course in its French depart- ment and women novelists in Shglish literature. Barnard also s considering an entire pro- gram of women subjects. Radcliffe College will feature several courses including one on women's changing role in soci- ety. Among the co-ed colleges: Cornell University, which started its course on women last year, plans to continue it again :his year after enthusiastic re- I A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN DiEAR MISS BROOKFIELD-. In a few months my daugh- :r 'will be getting" married, ler fiance and all male mem- bers of the bridal party, ex- cept one, wear their hair short. But one young man wears his houlder length, hippie style, ve told them that if he can't cut his hair for the wedding, he should not be asked to serve as usher. My daughter and her 'iance disagree. They claim: they can't ask him to cut ils hair, and 2) the young man is really a "nice" fellow. True, may be making a mistake in udging the fellow by his ap- learance, but I can't help it. "hat's the way I was raised. Would it be improper to ask his fellow to get a haircut for he wedding? H. L., Muncie, Ind. DEAR H. L.-. Yes, it would be improper. Your daughter and her fiance are right in insisting they can't ask this young man to cut his hair. If his appearance had been disturbing to them, they wouldn't have invited him to serve as an usher. The over-40 generation fre- quently uses the length of a young man's hair to categorize indiscriminately his beliefs in education and politics, his sex- ual mores and his personal hygiene- Try your best to get to know this man before the wedding. You may be sur- prised to discover he is just as "nice" as your daughter and her fiance say he is. If so, you will have taken, a giant step in bridging the so-called "generation gap." sponse from male and female students Princelon will offer a course entitled Political Modernization, to study male and female val- ues in relation to broad world problems. In Canada, the University of Toronto offers a scecial course on women. BETTY FRIEDAN for the 27-hour course. An eight-hour defensive driving class is available for The league uses only per- manent instructors, and rec- ommends that drivers un- dergo stringent tests every five often after the age of 40. Meanwhile, there is little chance to determine whether a commercial driving school is ethical before signing up for lessons, he said, adding Hint he could not think of even one he would recommend. "We get many complaints about them, as docs the Bet- ter Business Bureau. One woman phoned us to say she has spent over on lessons and still can't pass the (hiving lest. "There is nolhing we CBfl do.
