Women in India are victims ot the Asian nation's growing
thrust toward industrialization, but an evolving pathway of
opportunity for women is education, according to Indian educator
Dr. Mani P. Kamerkar
Speaking to a small audience in Memorial Wednesday night.
Kamerkar stressed the role education will play in India's future.
Personal laws of religion found in the Indian constitution form
the basis of daily lives Guidelines on marriage, divorce and
family laws are dictated by religious convention. Kamerkar said.
Under these restrictions women are given equal rights, but
they do not always receive equal treatment, she said
"Very few women will challenge the men for their rights.”
Kamerkar said ‘The personal laws really reflect our social
Kamerkar emphasized two major hypotheses she has derived
from her extensive research. The first concerned India's growing
industrial thrust Women there are the first to lose jobs, pay and
status, she said.
The more we modernize, the more we industrialize, the more
women are victimized.” she said Men are trained for jobs, not
women, and women can find no jobs to replace the ones they
lose, she said.
According to the 1971 census, female employment in India
dropped from 58 percent in the early I9ft()'s to ll percent in 1971.
Government employment is a much better field for women.
Kamerkar said Private concerns are not required to hire if a
person passes the civil service exams, as is the government But
the level of promotion in government positions is limited
On the political level, women have made much headway, as
evidenced by the presence of two women on the Indian Central
If women cannot be employed, they should develop skills to
employ themselves, she said Education in India is evolving as
an important pathway to economic opportunities for women,
according to Kamerkar At the women's university in Bombay,
pamphlets are freely distributed and workshops are conducted to
deal with the problem of female unemployment.
A substantial amount of progress has been made as a result of
these programs to educate women, according to Kamerkar An
education for a dowry is more in demand than a bride who brings
with her the traditional material goods More women doctors and
dentists are in India than in America, she said.

Fifty percent of the people holding jobs in those fields are
female. The legal profession (judges and lawyers I has also begun
to open up more to Indian women, as well as architecture, she
Kamerkar was asked on what terms of equality were she and
her husband. With a laugh she replied, "Oh, he's very equal!"
ATLANTA A federal grand jury in Atlanta has
indicted 10 persons in a major crackdown by the federal
government on jobless benefit fraud in Georgia.
The suspects, from various cities in Georgia, were
indicted Wednesday allegedly for claiming benefits to
which they were not legally entitled. They were the first to
be indicted in what federal officials said would be a
The investigation is being conducted jointly by the FBI
and the Georgia State Department of Labor.
U S. Attorney William L. Harper said the indictments
were brought after a computer matched the names of
current employees on employers’ earning reports with the
names of individuals collecting state and federally funded
Spot checks have been conducted in the past, but
officials said the new computer program regularly will
provide investigators with the names of individuals who
collect unemployment funds while actually working.
Assistant u s Attorney Gayle McKenzie said the
maximum penalty for each count is five years in prison
or a $10,000 fine or both.
ATLANTA < 11*1)—Georgia Power Co . appealing the
Public Service Commission's denial of its $230.1 million
revenue request, has filed a court brief asking that the
increase be granted temporarily, pending a final decision
on the rate hike.
The brief, filed with Fulton County Superior Court
Judge Charles Wofford, was a follow-up explanation to the
utility's lawsuit filed April 17 asking the court to overturn
the commission action.
Georgia Power has contended that a failure to put the
increase into effect while a judge deliberates on the case
could mean heavy losses for the company.
Get ready for peaches
ATLANTA < I'PD—'Two of Georgia's best-known farm
crops peaches and sweet onions—will be on the market

State Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin said
Wednesday the first shipments of the famous Vidalia
onions and Georgia peaches were expected to come from
the southern part of the state by mid-May, with north
Georgia peaches ready later in the month
