Menteri British, di Malaysia Puan Datin Paduka Aisah Ghani, Menteri Kebajikan Masyarakat dan tidak kurang­ nya seperti jadi Peguam, Kaptan Kapal, Tentera Laut, seperti wanita di Indonesia dan lain-lain jawatan yang tinggi, apakah ini dipandang lemah? Begitulah pendapat gadis sunti yang mengisi ruangan gadis berita keluaran tahun barn 1983 ini. Gadis yang dimak­ sudkan ialah Cik Magner Maria Philip atau dia lebih suka dipanggil dengan nama penanya "Mar-83" sahaja. Berasal dari daerah Papar, ia dilahirkan kira-kira 19 tahun yang lalu dibawah naungan bintang Libra yang menjadi kesayangan kedua ibu bapa­ nya.

Bila ditanya apakah benar kaum wanita dipandang lemah oleh setengah-setengah golongan, dengan tidak sabar­ sabar dia menjawab, dia tidak setuju sama sekali. Sebenarnya peranan wanita adalah sama dengan kaum

lelaki. Bagi pendaptnya, di, zaman dulu, ianya mungkin benar, tetapi di zaman Sains dan Teknoloji ini kaum wanita adalan berlumba-Iumba dengan kaum lelaki iaitu mencabar. Sebagai contoh Puan Indra Ghandi, Perdana Menteri India, Puan Margaret, l>erdana

Sebagai seorang yang pernah mendidik kanak-kanak selama tujuh bulan di sekolah Tadika St. Mary Papar, memang sesuai dengan kegemarannya suka membaca buku-buku Teks untuk rujukan dan menambahkan lagi pelajaran­ nya disamping mendengar

radio, berkelah, mengemas rumah dan berjogging. Mar-83 memulakan pendidi­ kan awalnya di sekolah St. Mary Limbahau dan menamat­ kan sekolah di St. Joseph Papar, hingga tingkatan lima. Dalam segi makanan Mar tidak banyak cerewet, dia tidak memilih makanan asal­ kan jangan terlalu pedas. Mar-83 baru sahaja bertugas di Kumpulan Yayasan Sabah di bahagian Amanah sebagai kerani dua bulan yang lalu, dan bertukar ke bahagian Operasi Kayubalak sebagai kerani Statistik. Dalam usianya yang masih remaja Mar ingin memijakkan kakinya hingga ke Universiti selain dari membantu adik­ adiknya dalam persekolahan mereka.

Mengenai soal rumahtangga, belum terlintas lagi di fikiran Mar, tapi ingin mencari teman yang jujur dan setia serta ber­ tanggongjawap kerana itulah kunci kebahagian bila berumahtangga.

Staff from the Sabah Founda­ tion Group of Companies will now enjoy the benefit of a housing loan scheme launched this year. This was definitely one of the best news in years which was announced by our Director, Tan Sri Datuk Ben Stephens at the annual staff party last year. The scheme will be handled by the Group Staff Housing Committee. Tan Sri Datuk Ben further stated that the Staff of the Sabah Foundation or commonly known as the "Foundation Proper", will also enjoy the benefit in line with the provisions of the Cabinet Committee Report. Tan Sri Datuk Ben further stated that 1982 was a rather difficult year for the Founda­ tion because of the world wide recessions. "Certain measures had to be

taken and cutbacks in expen­ ditures were also introduced," he added. "However, 1 am very grateful and thankful to all of you for your understanding and patience in this matter," said the Director. ·Tan Sri Datuk Ben also said that the Foundation has been initiators in most of its activities and he was proud to be counted among such "leaders of innovation" for the ,betterment of the people of Sabah. "1 am happy indeed to say that we are living up to the spirit of progress for the benefits of the people of Sabah. It is my hope that we continue with this spirit and uphold our philosophy of continued progress for the people of Sabah in the coming new year," he added. Tan Sri Datuk Ben later presented long service awards to Kota Kinabalu staff who
