Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 3, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa By Listen NEW YORK (UPI) Wom- en have been pushed up the corporate ladder to fulfill the government headcount on minorities. But moving into a managerial slot can be a dead end for women who expert to advance on merit alone. "Women executives often lack the aggressiveness to make career plans clear to their says James Hayes, president of the Amer- ican Management Assns. a nonprofit organiza- tion that holds worldwide management training pro- grams for more than executives annually. "There's been a big push for jobs for women, but now it's time to IQA Ctttr RipHs GtitUt: tuts., Dte. 3. H74 Stripper Denies Mills Tie NEW YORK (AP) The Tidal Basin Bombshell says her friend Wilbur Mills is "a young man in an old man's body." But the stripper re- peatedly denies that the chair- man of the house ways and means committee is her lover. However, the woman form- erly nicknamed "The Argen- tine Firecracker" who dances professionally as Fanne Foxe had trouble Monday making clear just what her relation- ship is to Mills. She tried valiantly during a news conference, interviews 'and at a press preview of her strip act. Miss Foxe also showed some confusion about whether she fell, jumped or was pushed into Washington's Tid- al Basin at 2 a.m. last Oct. 7. and how the congressman got the cuts on his face that night. Got in Way "1 didn't hit Mr. she told a news conference. "Well, maybe I she reconsi- dered. "But it was an acci- dent. He got in my way." At another point she said darkly that she felt Mills was being but insist- ed that "I don't think I have destroyed him." "I love Mr. Mills and he loves she said at one point. "But we are not lovers. We're just friends very close friends No, I am not his lover. "No, no, we love each other, but not like she protest- ed to another series of ques- tions. Miss FoxiTsaid, "He always used to say I was just two years older than his youngest daughter." She described her friendship with the powerful congressman as a father- daughter relationship. "It's sort of like, what do you call it, a father she said. "My father was always the on- ly one who could tell me what to she added. Truth Time Of Mills' public affection for her, Miss Foxe said, "It's time for a person in his posi- tion to be truthful. A lot of people do these things you know but don't have the nerve 'to say it." She didn't elabo- rate. An evening performance brought about 100 men into the worn-down theater where she says she's making for the week. They applauded only lightly after she complet- ed a 20-minute dance punc- tuated by a bare-chested chat with front row onlookers to whom she gave candy canes and lollipops. One fan shouted, "Where's Miss Foxe, who says she is 38, smiled demurely and replied, "Oh, he's in Washington, but that's none of my business." Of her current red hot pub- licity, she said, "I guess I'm cheating a little. I'm not real- ly such a good dancer. I'm in business strictly for the mon- ey." Women Executives Find Promotion Can Be Dead End start talking he told UPI. Men historically have had to be aggressive to succeed in the corporate world, but new first-line women supervisors and administrative assistants must be taught to compete effectively rather than just co- operate, Hayes said. Escape Route The escape route for women locked into a token promotion lies in training, Hayes said, but these newcomers to man- agement are reluctant to de- velop their resources. Even in today's brave new world of women, he said, the AMA draws an average of only four women out of every 80 manag- ers attending its training programs. .Training also can help avert what Hayes terms the "little or the rush to promote women 'to meet legal requirements without prepar- ing them for management re- sponsibilities. "Other people's lives and dreams are suddenly in the hands of rank ama- he said. But even the established businesswoman is unwilling to push as hard as men. "Men will aggressively volunteer to lecture at the AMA pro-, Hayes observed, "while women invariably ask permission to talk it over with their bosses." Although today's women ex- ecutives are younger and better educated than their counterparts 10 years ago, sexual prejudice still runs rampant. At least 94 percent of the managers in the United States, according to Hayes, have some resentment toward the newly-appointed woman executive. Women managers also face resistance from their own sex who often dislike working for other women. Instinct "Women by instinct have very good managerial tal- Hayes said. Women are better long-term thinkers than men who act first and think later, he noted. "The ma- lernalistic image makes wom- en tremendous supervisors at the personal level, while men are paternalistic In an Institu- tional way." .Mule executives still ap- proach women peers "with a certain kind of delicacy and refuse to lay their cards on the Hayes, said. "But the relationship will become tougher as more women move into power The AMA president believes women executives are feeling the backlash created by fed- eral pressure on corporations to promote women into man- agement slots. "The net effect is he said. But if women managers are kept in token positions and not moved up the corporate ranks, "there will be a whole new genera- tion of frustration only five years away."

Ex-Dictator's Wife Released ATHENS (UPI) Despina Papadopoulos, wife of former dictator George Papadopoulos, was released Tuesday from Kokydallos prison where she was interned Sunday pending her trial for fraud against the state. Witnesses said Mrs. Pa- padopoulos left the prison at noon accompanied by her two lawyers. A spokesman for the prosecutor said she was re- leased pending trial because she gave proof of repentance by returning the money she fraudulently received from the state. Mrs. Papadopoulos was charged with receiving pay from the Central Intelligence Service without working while her husband was ruling the country. Mrs. Papadopoulos, 43, was a CIS employe for several years and worked as a typist for Papadopoulos when he was operations director of Greek intelligence. Papadopoulos married Despina in 1968, after divor- cing his first wife. Despina divorced her first husband bo- fore the 1967 military take- over.

(UPI) Beverly Harrell, Ihe madam of a legal bordello who came within 120 votes of winning a Nevada assembly scat, withdrew her request for a recount Monday because county clerks refused to allow ballots to be challenged. "Without the right to chal- lenge irregularities and bal- lots it is no recount at said Harrell. The petite red-headed brothel owner lost the race to Don Moody of Hawthorne, Nev., a service station owner who is related to Gov. Mike O'Callaghan. The vole was 533 to "I've learned two things in this election. First, if the es- tablishment is out to beat you they will find a way. And also it is clear that our state electon laws are sorely in need of she said. "The recount procedure adopted by the county clerks in my district at the urging of Attorney General Robert List would make it impossible for me to receive a fair she said. List handed down an opin- ion recently which said Ihe county procedure should be the same as on election night and that challenges should not be allowed. Weepers, Mourners Won 'f Receive Money SAN JOSE, Calif. (UPI) A judge has ruled out the mourners and the weepers from the will of a woman who wanted to leave to anyone who cried at her funeral. Florine O'Shea, who died last year at the age of 81, left a estate. The Palo Alto woman said in her hand- written will that should be given to anyone attending her funeral and to anyone "seen crying for me." Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Robert E. Cassin ruled Monday that there was no way to determine who came to the funeral or who cried because no guest regis- ter was kept. The bulk of the estate will go, as Mrs. O'Shea directed, to an anlivivisection society and various animal shelters.

PEKING (UPI) Christi- anity hangs on In Poking .kept alive by three old men iji and a woman. S "That Is about all there Is, really, but It Is said i; Barbara Bush, wife of the U. S. envoy to China. I Christianity surfaces for an 5 hour or so on Sundays in a :i crumbling plaster building about a mile from the For- j' bidden City where Communist Party Chairman Mao Tse-tung has his seat of atheistic au- thorily. ;i In this gray-painted, smog- :j clouded capital, the three old men and a woman gather in a former Bible Society head- quarters, clinging to their faith in spite of intense official opposition. Attack Beliefs Books, newspapers', bill- boards, radios, magaEines, plays and operas in this land of 900 million Chinese attack Christianity as well as old Chinese teachings such as the beliefs of the an- cient sage Confucius. The Communist campaign against religion surfaced in what Americans might con- sider unlikely places during Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's trip to Peking last week. Strolling in the Chuocheng gardens of Soochow on Friday, Kissinger stopped to admire 14 young girls singing and dancing in a circle on the grass. In this land of the work brigade and communal confes- sion, the girls seemed to express a universal innocence and humanity. But the expres- sion suffered in translation. Party Line The girls, whirling with joined hands, sang undeviat- ing party line songs about hat- ing and fighting revisionists, religion and other enemies of the people. But, still, three old men and a woman muster on Sundays in Peking. One man was a Presbyterian minister before the Communist takeover in 1949. Another was an Epis- copal pastor.
