Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta April 1, W4 MOULD-11 Ann Landers Dear Ann A woman in our town (age 21) is going to serve my son (age with a paternity suit. She had a baby in October of 71 My son says he has had nothing to do with her since November of 71, and that he was intimate with her only twice before that. A 28-year-old woman is no kid. She should know how to keep from getting pregnant. Everyone in town says she has a bad reputation. I realize a blood test can determine that certain individuals could NOT have been the father, but what would occur if my son's blood type should just happen to match the baby's? Wouldn't it be her word against his? We need information and moral support. Mother Of Innocent Man Dear Mother: If your son is being sued he must hire a lawyer to defend him. His lawyer can answer all the questions you have asked, and then some As for "moral sorry, I'm fresh out of encouraging words for a 25- WeeWhimsv whctt 'n> I to wi i f> nl tht- Or cjm il dfl IQI Ivf bur i hild i fiuntdlion 10 ihib papef BINGO Mon., April 1st Jackpot in 54 Nos. -MAlARMmNOO" S1 GoM Dmibto SS Door (Many Other 5 tar SI Ne undw year-old, man wtto tools around with a woman of bad reputation and yells "foul" when she announces he's the father of her child. A 25-year- old guy should know as much about birth control as a 38- year-old woman. Am Landers: Regarding the letter from the mother who signed herself it seems her daughter came home whenever she and her husband had a fight kids, luggage and all. Let me tell you about my'mother-in-law.' She tned to pull that stunt on her mother, too. But it didn't work. Her mother would telephone her son-in- law and say, "Come over here and pick up your wife and child You married this girl and now she belongs with you, not me." So he'd drive over and get them and they'd settle their arguments under their own roof. My wonderful mother-in- law laughs about it now, after 40 years of marriage. And I laugh with her Long-Time Reader Dear Reader: Thanks for writing. I hope you and your mother-in-law laugh together for another 40 years. Dear Ann Landers: We have been married less than two years and I need to know if I am right or wrong. At first I was sure of my position. Now I'm wavering. My younger sister has asked me to be a bridesmaid at her wedding. I said I'd be delighted. She was in my wedding party When I told my husband, he became upset. Because he was not asked to be an usher. He claims I should refuse the "honor" unless he is included in the wedding party. What do you say? Torn And Miserable Dear T. and M.: Almost always, the bridesmaids are selected by the bride and the ushers by the groom. If your husband was not invited to be an usher he shouldn't consider it an insult, nor should he ask you not to be in the wedding party.

PuMterwd by tht Olvitlon of ttw CanwMan Ctnotr SocMty MM (ppraciirtion of work of our yofcntttri m mu Male at large VIENNA Tfce af the sexei, of reality IB the Soviet to many Western cwwtrttt has not kept socialist women from being bunteMd with more work than their menfolk. The demand for equal pay for equal work, still far from fulfilment in moat of the West, has long been met in the Soviet Union and Communist Eastern Europe. It was one of the targets set by Lenin who, in 1919, said: "Let there he equality to work, to payment, to rest and leisure." There is a large measure of opportunity, but for the majority of women in the socialist countries equality to rest and leisure just does not exist, For that great ogre so often cited by Women's Liberation activists in the West, the male chauvinist pig, is alive and well and pursuing his evil ways from the steppes of Siberia to the coast of Bulgaria. Equality may be enshrined in the constitution, the Communist Party statutes, and the labour laws, but socialist husbands are not much more inclined to take an equal share in housework and child-rearing than their capitalist fellows. As a result, millions of married women in socialist countries on average, about half the labour force there is 1 made up of women leave their work after eight hours to begin a second job as housekeper and mother. This, of course, holds equally true for married women with jobs in the West. However, many of the amenities that help make life easier for them from laundrettes to well-stocked supermarkets are rare or non-existent in the East. Shopping there often involves time-consuming queuing and public transport is generally slow and overcrowded. Female reluctance to face the double strains of holding a job and being a wife and mother, plus a general scramble for. the acquisition of just those goods that are now becoming increasingly suspect in the West cars, television stereo equipment have led to a steady decline in the birth rate. This trend has continued despite generous allowances arrangements for pregnant women and young mothers. Six to nine months' fully-paid maternity leave is common in the Soviet -bloc, with Mwthw six to tight HMrths M reduced pay ttt rate ratter than the evartloa. Crediea and day K'JOOU for mall children are numarMS. but haw done little to induce married to siMable families .Bulgaria has now reached virtual tero population growth, to the obvious alarm of authorities there. According to statistics publipbed in December, only births were registered in Bulgaria last year. With an overall population of slightly more than this equals a growth rate of less than 1.5 per cent. -Bulgaria is trying to halt this decline with increased family allowances, considerably reduced prices for baby clothes and food, and stricter abortion laws. Legislation on abortion, once very liberal, has been tightened throughout the Soviet bloc in recent years. Another reason for the steadily falling birth rates is the perennial housing shortage in all countries of Eastern Europe. Millions of couples have to start their married lives in small apartments or even in single rooms shared with parents or other relatives. The resulting lack of privacy is breaking countless marriages and has resulted in a constant increase in the number of divorces. There is little doubt that women in the socialist countries have a' wider choice of professional careers than their sisters in the West. The traditional preponderance in the West of women in the arts rather than in the sciences does not exist in Eastern Europe. Women are represented and hold prominent posts in virtually all walks of life. But there is equally little doubt that male prejudice f ram rtstof to the wry top. ThraughttU tht 8ovtet UDC, woroet dominate medicine and teaching hut a disproportionately high percentage of leading positions in these fields continues to be held by men. In the Soviet Union, women make up more than 8B per cent of the work force in medicine. However, over half the top jobs such as chief surgeon or chief research scientist are filled by men. Women, are decidedly under-represented in politics. Throughout the Soviet bloc, women's Communist Party membership is roughly 2S per cent and in the policy-make Politburos women are very rare. The deep-rooted 'male view of the woman as wife and mother apparently still persists, despite the decisive role of women in the post-war era with its emphasis on the industrialization of countries which, with the exception of East Germany and Czechoslovakia, formerly depended on agriculture.
