Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April 20, 1974 Women play active roles in IRA terrorist missions BELFAST (Reuter) It came as no surprise in Belfast when the New British minister for Northern Ireland, Merlyn Rees, announced last week that women are being sent on terrorist bombing missions. Rees told the House of Commons in London that in recent weeks women had been planting incendiary bombs. There were wry smiles in Belfast the following day. Women have played an integral part in the activities of the Irish Republican Army since the movement's formation more than 50 years ago. In early days of the IRA, the women's wing, known as Cumann Na Mbann. was used for a variety of jobs ranging from transporting guns and ammunition between male fighting units to brewing tea tor gunmen exhausted after spending the night on rooftops WOMEN WANT ACTION Then came female emancipation, culminating in the women s liberation movement of the 1960's. And when the present troubles here began in 1969, the women required a bigger slice of the action. Active service units of the women's IRA apparently had no shortage of volunteers. The nucleus was made up of wives of men involved in the movement, but there were plenty of teenagers anxious for action. Weapons training in remote areas of the Irish republic was supplied by men and, reliable sources here say, the first women went into action in late 1970. Evidence of casualties came in an Easter edition of Belfast's Roman Catholic newspaper, Irish News. It listed eight women who had "given their lives that we may live Overseas postings also were offered to suitable candidates. British police new are hunting for a Belfast girl they suspect of planting bombs in England. CARRIAGE BOMBS The British Army first became aware of the women's IRA about two years when bombs began exploding in unoccupied baby carriages. For at least two years members of the British Women's Royal Army Corps have been constantly employed frisking women in Belfast, but there are lous moral difficulties involved in making thorough searches. The incendiary bombs which wrought havoc in Belfast and other Western cities last week were almost certainly planted by women. But as one army source says: "There are many intimate parts of the female anatomy where these tiny, but deadly devices can be concealed." The army's latest answer to the problem has been to round up as many known members of the women's IRA as can be found. Among the 64 suspected terrorists, detained in raids by the army in recent days, have been at least 12 women.

NAME S ADDRESS CITY v Payments ClMMf Starting Now Low Monthly Tuition NEW YORK (AP) Interior designer Joyce Griffin usually makes a big hit with husbands of her is all for dis- playing their sports trophies where they can be seen. "When I do the apartments of young of my clients are 30 or al- ways ask to see their wedding presents, many of which they have tucked away. Even a rel- ish dish can make a beautiful ashtray." When people go "tsk, tsk" that the gift from Aunt Martha is at long last being in the wrong mind, she said It is better to make some use of the crystal, porcelain or pewter than to store it in a closet. As for swimming, bowling, hunting or fishing trophies, she puts them around the bookcases, tables and the like. "Some people store pretty things because they don't know how to use them. But you can make good decorating use of any lovely a soup tureen that comes with the average set of china can be pretty if it is used on the dining room table as a centrepiece." MAKES GOOD ASHTRAY A pretty demi-tasse cup can be used as a cigarette holder on an end table where the saucer can serve as an ash tray. One of her specialties, she said, is "accessorizing" In Great Neck, N.Y., where she and her interior-design partner Lucille Markay, also have an antique shop, they are asked to accessorize homes after the house is decorated. She prefers it even to their regular decorating work. WEIGHT WATCHERS. SAVES YOU ON ENROLLMENT FEE FROM APRIL 22nd TO MAY 4th Clip out Coupon bilow and prtsint at any Wiight Watchers Class!

Y. Vinyl wall coverings have become the Cinderella of the industry. From a somewhat austere and timid beginning, this product of modern chemistry now has invaded the home with a brilliance and exuberance of design that is nothing short of fantastic. Fresh contemporary florals, superscaled and superstyled geometries, tradtional flocks and patterns, Oriental motifs, African themes, Middle Eastern and Indian inspirations, are all part of the far-ranging picture. Machine-printed vinyls, at a cost of to a roll, project an expensive, high- styled look at a fraction of the cost of the hand-printed variety. It is estimated that during 1974, Americans will spend over million at retail for all types of wall coverings. Of this amount, some 80-per-cent will probably be spent on vmvls. At least half of these vinyl purchasers will do their own installation in sell-defense against constantly rising labor costs. Jack Josephson, whose company is the second- largest manufacturer of vinyl wall coverings (Columbus, makers of Wall-tex, is says that the big-volume average price today for vinyls is a roll. Average sale is a room. Since cost of professional installation usually runs about that amount, he says, it is no wonder that the do- it-yourself market is experiencing phenomenal growth People have discovered, he claims, that vinyls are easy to hang, are colorful and decorative, and that they are superior, in terms of wear and care, to a painted wall They are scrubbable. scuff and impact resistant, and can be stripped off easily and replaced. They will not crack, and 10 years is not considered unusual wear life. There are three types of vinyl wall covering: vinyl laminated to a paper back; vinyl coated to a woven or non-woven cloth backing; and vinyl laminated to light weight woven-cloth backing. The latter is the most common and widely used variety, and is considered the best for cracked walls. It serves as a reinforcement, and becomes an extra skin that literally "rides with the wall" and takes both stress and hard wear. Manufacturer Josephson recommends the use of a commercial pre-mixed vinyl adhesive, since it has more tack and slipping power than the powder variety The or shiny patent, now has reached the mass market, and people are paying a roll to attain this high- fashion glossiness, particularly on their kitchen and bathroom wails. Vinyls are easy to hang, colorful and decorative. Cowboy revives old west in woodcarvings CALGARY (CP) Horses and buffalo are a large part of Bud Cotton's life. For about 40 of his 83 years, he worked with them regu- larly. He still does, although the ai'mals now play a less ac- tive role. They serve as sub- jects for his woodcarvings, keeping his memories of the Canadian West alive. Mr. Cotton's cowboy career began in 1906, when he came west from Sherbrooke, Que. "It was wanderlust that brought me out he said. "All those tales of the cattle country, full of buffalo and cowboys, filled me with a desire to see it for myself." He obtained his first range- riding job with a ranching outfit at Medicine Hat, Alta. "We ran our cattle in the ranges around the Drumheller district It was desert coun- try, but the cattle thrived on it. They could live on almost anything." From 1907 to 1912, Mr. Cot- ton worked with a larger out- fit which had a chuckwagon, 10 to 12 cow- boys, a cook and about 100 saddle horses. "Each cowboy had around 10 horses for his own use, and when we got them they were usually only he said. "If you got on a horse in the morning, you wouldn't get off him for anything or you'd find yourself walking home." The experience he1 got rid- ing half-wild horses led him to try his hand at bronc riding. "They didn't have corrals in those days, so when you got on a horse he'd usually head for home. "By the time you'd get back, with the money would have taken off, leaving you in the lurch." About 1912. Mr. Cotton ob- tained a job with the federal government, working in the buffalo park near Wainwright, 120 miles southeast of Edmon- ton "The herd was started in 1909 with some 970 head of buffalo. By the time the stock was cleared out for good in 1940, nearly buffalo had passed through the reserve." It was hard work taking care of the buffalo but it had its lighter side as well. "I can remember the time they sent us a new veter- inarian, fresh out of school. "He was the kind of fellow who wants to learn everything about the job and he started out by asking us to find him a dead animal so he could find out the cause of death. "Well, we found him a dead that had been ly- ing for a week in the July and he threw off his coat and shirt right away and started cutting it open. "We stood back a fair way and watched him, but then he called to us to help him turn the buffalo over. Never again did we pull a trick like that." Mr. Cotton remained at the Wainwright reserve even after it was closed in 1940. The department of national defence had taken over the land but a so-called cattalo result of cross- breeding cattle and buffalo- stayed at the park. He worked with the cattalo until 1944, when he was trans- ferred to Elk Island National Park, about 20 miles east of Edmonton, to work with the buffalo there.

FASTPHOTOFINISHINO PHOTO FRAMES Sizei PASSPORT PHOTOS PHOTO RESTORATION CHICAGO (CP) Depression is the most undertreated of major diseases although in most cases it is relatively easy to handle, says a report published by the Journal of the American Medical Association. "The discrepancy between the availability of treatment for depression and the actual providing of treatment is so great as to constitute a says the report by Dr. Nathan S. Kline, director of the research centre at Rockland State Hospital. Orangeburg. N.Y. He quoted United States government surveys which found that in any given year 15 per cent of adults aged 18 to 74-20 million Amer- icans may suffer serious depressive symptoms but less than five per cent of them receive -psychiatric treatment. Although most patients go first to their family doctor for help, most physicians receive relatively little training in treating depression, the article said. An aspect of depression that often was overlooked was anhedonia, or the absence of pleasure. "The exhausted housewife, the bored adolescent and the occupational under-achiever are often suffering from depression but doctors need knowledge and experience in prescribing for them." The report said the most common therapeutic mistake is not continuing treatment for a sufficient period of time. The average anti-depressant took three weeks to produce an initial response. Another mistake inadequate dosage "Depression is one of the most gratifying disorders to treat, since very frequently there is complete remission F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALL 6th AVI.
