Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Snlurrfny. April It, TIJ1 THI IFTHBRIDOf 1IHAID 5 A housewife's recurring nightmare Focus on the University WHEN I Iwvt; a inure, which fortunately is sel- dom, it is of icciurrinjt scenes, real.

Mattresses nrc on I he floor, the kitchen sink is full of a weeks' dirty dishes, cmUiins are hanging in Utters and Ihc children aro running nrouiul Iti such filthy clothes thai neighbors to cull (fie Children's Aid. Some- how, in my dream I KNOW H's a dream, hut when I actually wake up to find that il is, I am terribly relieved. I suppose psychoanalysts Would RO to work over the hid- den meaning of all this lurking In my subconscious. They'd no doubt say I dislike housework, guesls, kicl.s, and even .sleeping and I'm simply acting out my lebollion in my dreams, while 1 don't like In take Issue with experts, in this in- stance they'd 1m caught nap- ping. This type of dream haunts all housewives occasionally, be- cause if! our c.'ii'ccrs AS .sui'li, unexpected visitors do find from time to time in a mess. Arid bully for Mm girl who, in the mLclsl of honse- cleaning, assumes the perfect hostess' role and asks drnppcr- inncrs to sit down among tho pails and mops while she fixes tea ami crarkcrs. Nov.'

However, over the years I've become rather set in my ways. I don't allow diaper changing on (lie couch any more and while the gels dusty it's never dirty and only occasional- ly untidy. Gucsls can drop in any lime and I'm not too per- turbed. Or at least that was what 1 thought until recently w hen Book Reviews friends pupped in on their way through Lcthbridge. We were delighted to sec them of course, but it was p.m. and I bad planned that Ihe two of us would sil down to a howl of soup and an egg, it being the day before our weekly shopping effort when v.c restock Ihe shelves. After the initial greetings, I couldn't keep my mind our conversation it was sorting through our near empty 1 ;i r d c r and almost barren fridge.

A sociological team in- vestigated n rumor that swept through'j, France in Mny lOfiJl nnd came up with Ihe interesting observations to be found in this book.

Su strongly was this nonsense believed that business in the dress shops fell off drastically and finally ended altogether whc-n crowds gathered outside and refused to allow potential ciislomers lo enter. Then the rumor subsided as a rcsull of denials by Ihe police, ridicule in the press, and aclion by civil rights groups. Investigation found that (he rumor originated among high school girls and spread quickly especially in hoarding schools. Probably the inspira- tion for the notion came from a piece of fiction on the theme of white slavery. From the high school girls it spread to shop girls and then Ilirougli Die whole strata of the city. Curiously, men on the whole unbelievers. No theory of superior rationality on (lie part of (lie male sex should be based on this finding in this particular case. There are plenty of gullible males in existence, as [he membership of almost any off-beat religious group will demonstrate. What made Iho Orleans rumor so virulent among females, according lo tha invcstipalors, was (lie it fitted in with sex fantasying. Tlic author expressed surprise that .vex fantasying plays such a part in Ihe female psyche, as the invesliRation suggested. There were other elements in the rumor that are more dis- turbing than the sex fantnsy- ing. A disheartening resurgence of anti-Semitism was unmis- lakeablc. Such had been the rcp'.igwmcc felt for Hitler's ns- saull on the Jews thai U had Ijcci) hoped was in Frant'c.

It is not simply Dial p e o p 1 c were willing to be- lieve in non-existent subler- rancan passages but (lint they were prepared to waive Iho need for evidence no wom- en disappeared in Orleans. The teaching profession was singled out for special condem- nation for failing to attack the lunatic nature of the rumor. Koine teachers actually aided the spread of Uia rumor hy warning girls to .slay away from the shops. ''Teaching is becoming increasingly a ca- reer, less and less a vocation of the wrilcs the, author. Awakening Ibc criticaj capacity is not something lo which many in society are dedi- cated and as a consequence there is too much believing. Any temptation to think the French arc more hospitable to nonsense than some other peoples needs to he rejected. Rumors also circulate in Cana- dian cities.
