SYDNEY, Australia iAP-The
tng Australian search for a na-
ioal identity moves to the
hattot box tomorrow when the
hl< Down Under stand up to,
te for a national tune.
The poll is the latest attempt
end a long-running contro-.
r over what tune should
ip the national hit parade.
iut nothing is ever what it
eets in Australia and the of-
t_-liy titled "National Poll
ar t Notional Tune" is no ex-
1 tSF, as the ballot paper
it, the poll is not for a
t J anthem. Australia al-
has one, "God Save the
t which is also the Bri-
enthem and an irritant to
an nationalists.

tts poll is for a tune. The

te r to be played on strictly
Ar t1ian occasions like when

s an electoral office
p mhoon said.
DIE CONTENDERS for the
eanlI tune are:
Litd Save the Queen,"
roundly condemned by
republicans as a hang-over of
Bri'ish imperialism;

* "Song ° of Australia," a
mournful work extolling the
natural beauties of Australia;
* "Advance Australia Fair,"
a rousing march that contains
this praise for the indomit-
able British spirit:
Britannia then shall surely
know
Beyond wide oceans roll
Her sons in fail' Australia's,
land
Still keep a British soul.
* "Waltzing Matilda," a fa-
mous. Australian ballad about
a sheep rustler who commits
suicide by jumping into a
swamp when he is caught by
mounted police.
The question of a national
anthem became a political is-
sue after Labor party leader
Gough Whitlam swept to pow-
er in 1972 and unleashed a
wave of nationalism in this
traditionally British - oriented
country. He replaced "God
Save the Queen" with "Ad-
vance Australia Fair" as the
national anthem. In doing so he
enraged promonarchists, who
are represented mainly, by
Prime Minister Malcolm Fras-
er's ruling Liberal National
Country party coalition of busi-
nessmen and farmers.
WHITLAM backed off and or-
dered the Bureau of Statistics
to conduct a poll of Austral-
ians to determine-which song
should be the emblem. The
winner was "Advance Aus-

tralia Fair" but Conservatives
cried foul.
In 1973 Whitlam comrhission-
ed a national song writing con-
test with a prize of $5,500 for
the winner. Only six entries
were judged suitable for pub-
lication and none was consid-
ered good enough to be the
anthem.
One of the judges, apologiz-
ing for the low standard of the
six finalists said, "You should
have seen the 2,500 we repect-
ed." '
When Fraser's Conservatives
toppled Whitham in the nation-
al elections in 1975, he restor-
ed "God Save the Queen" as
the national anthem and pro-
mised a poll on a national tune.
Most betting is that "Waltz-
ing Matilda" will win.
But as Whitlam said, the
jaunty ballad of the sheep
rustler is hardly the number
you would play at a state fun-
eral.

D1ETROIT (UPI) - Prisoners
at Michigan's only- prison for
wutmen filed a sex discrimina-
tior suit yesterday charging
they are denied the job train-
ing and educational opportuni-
ties extended to male convicts.
The suit filed in U. S. District
('ourt by the 360 inmates of the
Detroit House of Correction,
alleged that the policies of the
-state Department of Correc-
tions reflect the archaic belief
that the role of women in so-
ciety is confined to "wife and
slther."
"TIE SUIT does not endorse
the programs offered to male
prisoners. On the contrary, they
are also too few and too limited
in scope," said Judith Magid,
attorney for the women.
"But at least the state is ob-
ligated to provide women priso-
ners with (raining and educa-
tional opportunities on a par
with those made available to
men.
"Until these changes are
made," she said, "we will con-
tinue to put back on the
streets former inmates un-
trained and ill-prepared, whose
only chance for survival is to
apply for public support or
resort to a life of crime.".
THE SUIT cited specific ex-
amples of discrimination, in-
cluding the case of one inmate
just eight credits short of com-
pleting her bachelor's degree
when she was imprisoned.
It said the inmate, Mary
