Halpin women a news service Rose Marie has been liberated she was the Maiden to whom the late Nelson Eddy wearing a Scarlet tunic of the Royal Canadian mounted police ramp Sang of undying love As he Rode his horse across Fields of celluloid to uphold her majesty a Laws. Today if Rose Marie were at least 5-feet, 4-inches tall and passed All the other ramp enlistment requirements she might Don a Scarlet tunic other own swing astride a horse and vocalize right Back. Last May 4 the ramp announced it was opening its ranks to females. At last the mountie would get his woman True there had been women on the ramp payroll for years but these were a liberated females who pounded typewriters or did even More menial chores. The recruits would be Royal Canadian mounted policewomen with the same duties working conditions salaries pension benefits and moral standards of male mounties required on and off duty.

More than 2,000 women have filed applications to become mounties but Only 32 so far have been accepted for a five month training program to Start this month in Regina Saskatchewan. Asked Why there Are not More women in the first training group an ramp spokesman explained a a we la be moving very cautiously at first. Trying the women in various assignments to see How they do and checking if the Public accepts them As mounties. We be got to learn to walk before we can Montreal ramp official inspector Jean Lariviere was asked by newsmen if female riders might one Day be members of ramp musical ride teams such As a the one which performed at expo �?~74 in Spokane. There 32 Scarlet coated riders each carrying an 8-foot, Pennant tipped Bamboo Lance and seated on a Black horse per formed intricate horse and rider routines to music.

Apr my Little children let us not love in word neither in Tongue but in deed and in this verse from the first epistle of St. John is the spark that ignited Lexington smother to Mother program a Small band of Church women who reach out to help the poor. A a that a the whole idea of the thing a Linda Ashley found and chairwoman of the organization Here said. As a part of a much larger program started by the Christian Church disciples of Christ six years ago in St. Louis mrs. Ashley formed the Mother to Mother chapter Here earlier this year. In it teams of three Church women Are matched with a fourth Mother who is on welfare to help her reach whatever goals she sets for herself. A a it a completely interdenominational and interracial a mrs. Ashley said a and we done to think of it As helping the mothers on welfare but rather enabling at first mrs. Ashley said the state welfare department a was a Little leery about giving us names of people on welfare but now that they be seen How ifs working out. Theve re tickled to death with the mothers on welfare receive no Money through the program. In fact a we ask our members never to give Money a mrs. Ashley said. A instead we help them find resources where they can get what they need. A we have a $25 emergency fund in Case Money is Ever needed but we be never spent it a she added. A one team in St. Louis did pay a woman a rent for a few months and after that she did no to want to see them again and the whole project failed a she said. Otherwise there Are almost no rules in the Mother to Mother program mrs. Ashley said a except the simple rules of humanity and the idea is to form lasting friendships with those who Are on welfare and those who Are not sharing common problems and helping each other solve them. A we done to try to convert anybody but actions speak louder than words and sometimes it works out that Way a mrs. Ashley said. A this is just what christians should be doing. Meetings Are held each month but members done to have to attend she said. A did fact the Beauty of this program is that women can work at it whenever they have three Church women Are selected for each team a because people done to always mrs. Ashley said. A usually one of them becomes a Friend to the fourth woman and the others can help in other although she wont be too specific lest the women on welfare might be identified mrs. Ashley did give some examples of her groups work. A one girl who grew up in a Foster Home did no to know How to look for a Job so the other women took her to 17 places until she finally got a Job a she said. A and another woman has a Job but is still eligible for food Stamps. She can to go get them though unless she takes a Day off from work so one of her friends is going to get them for her a she said. Besides helping those who need help mrs. Ashley said the program a helps us learn some of the myths about the welfare program. In fact the lady who volunteered to get the food Stamps drives a Cadillac so i guess Well be adding to those myths the Lexington program which includes ii teams of women who Are members of 16 different churches was begun in february a but it was just about last month that we got set up. A your teams Are just now getting comfortable with each other a mrs. Ashley said a but we re planning to Start some More teams in the Flowers for All occasions High Point s leading Florist Grace Flower shop nth St Westwood phone tit 4015 and m2-1417_ with some financial help from churches Here the Mother to Mother program also receives some funds from the Christian Church mrs.
