popularity is such that one of her friends refers to her jokingly as Miss Thailand The plum Miss Saowanee, vuth her rumpled white school blouse and plain, practical shoes, could not look less like the polished products of Thailand s beauty contests Her beauty her admirers say, lies in her ability to move great crowds, sometimes to the point of tears "The words don't come from her lips to our ears but from her heart to our hearts, said one university student 'That girls are normally shy and they usually don't think for said a Thai journalist "Saowanee is nut afraid to say what she thinks and it s refreshing She was good at using market-place language and making people laugn said a Thai university professor, recalling Miss Saowanee's speeches during the October demonstrations against the military government She kept it up long after most people were dead tired and even when rumors circulated that the Army was going to attack Even after the ouster of the military rulers, Miss Saowanee kept active She helped collect donations to cover the expenses of persons wounded in the fighting And she continues to make speeches One of the main themes of her speeches is that the battle is far from over The formation of a civilian government in Bangkok has only been the first step forward" and "many more steps will be said Miss Saowanee in a statement over radio and television 1 Thai student moves crowds to the point of tears shortly after the military rulers were ousted We must never forget that we must use the democratic rights we have won and that we must be ready to defend she said Miss Saowanee first became politically active in 1972 when she was president of the speech club at Thammasat University Her first speeches dealt with Vietnam "I was afraid that Thailand would be like she said in an interview She was one of a committee that organized an exhibition on the Vietnam war "At that exhibition we had discussios on the cause and results of the said Miss Saowanee "We were critical of the American involvement in Vietnam and the American bases m Thailand Miss Saowanee thinks that because many Thai students favored the withdrawal of the U S Air Force from Thailand the former military government was forced to begin making moves to reduce the U S presence here Miss Saowanee also participated in the student campaign that forced the Thai generals to give up an attempt to assert executive control over the Thai judiciary As Miss Saowanee sees it, the biggest problem facing the Thai student movement at the moment is "how to educate the Thai people to understand the democratic process "We have to learn how to use democracy and how to keep it' she said Femininity blossoms at B.C. logging operation PARKSVILLE, BC (CP) A hand lettered sign on the door of a weight-scaling station at a logging operation near this Vancouver Island community is the first indiction that there is a quiet island of femininity blossoming in an ocean of logging trucks, bulldozers, big timber and caulk boots The sign admonishes visitors to 'WIPE YOUR FEET The person on the other side of the door is Ruth McArthur, 19 of Hope, B C employed by the British Columbia Forest Service as weight sealer at MacMillan Bloedel's Principal receives top marks A Lethbridge principal was one of only 374 students to receive straight-A's following winter quarter studies at the University of Montana, the university released today Ken Sauer, of the Lethbndge Collegiate Institute, received a leave of absence from the Lethbridge public schools to continue his education for the winter semester at the U of M Mr Sauer also made the honor roll at the university, which had a total of students registered for its winter quarter Northwest Bay division on the east coast of Vancouver Island Holding down a job that, until recently, was considered a man's occupation, Ruth keeps her station as neat as a pin She vacuums the floor daily dusts the furniture once or twice a day, including the big indoor weigh scale and keeps the windows squeaky clean And nowhere to be found is the traditional evidence of male occupancy at a logging operation the tattered remnants of old cheesecake calendars plastered on a wall Ruth has been operating the Northwest Bay scale since last September, calculating the volume of timber hauled from adjoining forests to the company sorting area adjacent to the bay The figures she accumulates form the basis for royalties the company pays to the provincial government for the timber She successfully bid for the job after spending last summer as a forest service fire-fighter at Enderby, B C where she was a member of an all-woman fire suppression team "There are lots of jobs in the woods that I think women are capable of she remarked while weighing a truckload of logs "It's not a woman's liberation thing as far as I'm concerned I think the industry is getting pretty well populated with women I haven t been at this job that long but I haven't had any trouble with guys resenting my being here Working alone, her biggest problem is filling the idle time in the sometimes lengthy intervals between trucks Ruth dreams up a new project for each working week Recently, loggers passing the scaling station were startled bv the tones of a recorder Ruth had decided to master the instrument in her spare time, arming herself with sheet music and a songbook She also does a lot of form of knotted weaving with twine and string and all the crowssword puzzles she can find Her father is a protection officer in the Vancouver fire
