Erlandson the Baltimore Sun Field news service London a when an unmarried couple who live together visit for the weekend offer them a single a room. To do otherwise is discourteous and implies unwarranted personal disapproval advises the first major Book on manners and social behaviour published in England in 50 years. But the hostess still has the last word on where to put the couple if she has very Strong views on the subject or if there Are elderly relatives on hand who might be shocked or upset. The new Book a a debretto etiquette and Modem manners a was released last week by debretto peerage which for 200 years has been the arbiter of British taste style and downright snobbery. Social behaviour in the last two decades has not Only changed it has been bludgeoned into transformation. Things that were not even mentioned aloud when the last etiquette Book was written Are now commonplace. The new Book already dubbed a the Good snobs guide a was written in response to Middle class demands to be told what to do and How to do it a properly. In some areas particularly where sexual mores Are involved the Bode treads carefully because the shia tons a and consequent guidelines a Are still evolving. The Book will be �?o90 percent applicable to the United states As Well As to other Angush speaking countries a said Harold Brooks Baker de bretts managing director. He said it will be released shortly in the United states. A we thought 10 years ago that etiquette was dead but it is More alive now than at any time since the second world War a said Brooks Baker. A people Are obsessed with doing tilings correctly As never before. In tie last few years we be received thousands of Calls and letters asking How to do Titis or Itiat How to dress for a Ball or give a special party. A the Middle class is four times larger than before the War a he continued a and the trend is now Back toward style people Are wearing ties and dinner jackets which were almost gone Are coming Back. A the pendulum is swinging Back and it will swing a Lite farther and then come to rest for a the editor of the Book is an american Elsie Burch Donald a tennessean who has lived in Britain for 13 years. She worked with seven writers a some of them titled a to produce the Book which was a a vetted by sir Iain Moncreiff debretto chairman and a Well known stickler for Good manners and usage. A we believe it is the first comprehensive Book of etiquette to be issued since the social revolution of the sixties which swept away much formality and stuffiness a mrs. Donald said. The new Book it Yas so Well received that the subject of accommodating a those unmarried guests a rated a front Page headline in the times of London. But that subject amusing As it is Brooks Baker said is just one tiny Section of a Book that attempts to cover a in Modem context a the right Way to say and do everything from addressing Royalty to eating peas off a Fork. A the rules for people living together Are amusing a Brooks Baker said a but they Are not really necessary. These things work tiie selves it has been tiie Rise of uie Middle class Itiat required the rules to be spelled out he said the upper class has always offered two rooms to even married couples on weekend visits to be used As they wished. A it is the Middle classes that Are determined to make rules for everything a the debretto director said. A the real misunderstanding is Between tiie attitudes of the upper and Middle Brooks Baker said he recently sat next to a Well known woman at a dinner party and she complained that her 23-year-old son had been living with a a very Nice australian girl for three years and Itiat it was embarrassing to uie family. A How Many affairs did your father have and How Many bastards a Brooks Baker said he asked. A How did you know a he said the woman replied. A we live now in the least permissive society we be Ever seen a Brooks Baker said. A the Young Man in question is a living an incredibly conventional life Witti one girl and he has had very few sexual experiences. I have known him for years a he said. A permissive society he said is one where there is widespread promiscuity a not simply a couple using Toger Ier without being married. Brooks Baker said a i did Rule out putting in rules on receiving lesbians and homosexuals. Its not necessary to put it in writing. People have been doing it since time a there is noticing new about people having affairs or being homosexual or lesbian but now it is All coming out of the closet into the Public gaze a he said. A there was some pressure to have More in the Book about sex. The reason Why there is not More in tiie Book is not because we Are taking sides but because the rules Are still being made. Our position is to document not to comment. A a a the upper classes do not pay much attention to it formal rules of etiquette they simply take it for granted a he said. The new usage As defined by debretto permits the announcement in the a a Quality newspapers of what were once never even mentioned in polite society births in one Parent families. It even includes full instructions for inserting a notice in the times of London a is Mitzi on 6�o1 october 1981, at tiie Knight abridge Hospital London to Mary a although a etiquette and modern manners is drawing comment because it has focused attention on modern human relationships most of the Book focuses on traditional things engagements weddings births and christenings table manners and conversation a and death that victorian preoccupation. A mourning writing paper a it advises a is no longer statistics Canada shows Equality in wages by the year 2017 Toronto up women a wages Are playing a slow but steady game of catchup with menus and at this rate should be equal by the year 2017, figures from statistics Canada show. These statistics a based on 1979 wages the most recent available a say the average full time year round working woman in Canada earned 63.3 per cent of her male counterparts salary up from 82 per cent in 1977. In Ontario in 1979, the average full time working woman named 63.5 per cent of the average full time working Many a salary up from 60.9 per cent in 1977. A i think its encouraging although we still have a Long Way to go a said Alison Roberts director of the Ontario labor ministry a women a Bureau. A it shows there a a general shifting of women into better paying occupations As Well As employers acknowledging the value of women a the Gap Between menus and women a wages is due largely to the clustering of women in three of the lowest paying Job categories a clerical sales and service a but Between 10 and 25 per cent of that Gap cannot be accounted for on any other basis than discrimination a said Roberts. In Canada in 1979, the average working woman earned $11,741, compared to uie average Many a salary of $18,537. These figures Are up from 1977, when the average woman named $9,790 and the average Man named $15,777. This Means women a salaries while lower Are growing at a faster rate than menus a 19.9 per cent in two years compared to 17.4. At this rate women a salaries will catch up wit ii menus in the year 2017 when we could All be earning $336,000 annually if inflation stays the same. Lynne Gordon chairman of uie Ontario status of women Council is unhappy the actual Dollar Gap Between menus and women a wages is widening a up to $6,796 in 1979 from $5,987. A a in a not encouraged about any of the statistics that come out that show the real Dollar Gap widening a Gordon said. A i done to think we re Ever going to narrow the wage Gap unless we beef up enforcement of tiie existing equal pay Laws and slowly Start phasing in some variation of equal pay for work of equal in nearly every province women a salaries Are growing at a faster rate than menus although the actual Dollar Gap is wider Kathleen Garinger daughter of or.
