Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Traditional roles swapped on rait PARIS (AP) Women will hold the key command posts and men will serve in subor- dinate roles on a raft as it drifts next month across the Atlantic from Europe to the Americas. A Swedish woman captain, Maria Bjornstrom, and an American woman navigator, Women urged to become executives VANCOUVER (CP) Bri- tish Columbia Education Min- ister Eileen Dailly said here women teachers should go after educational administrative jobs. "I encourage women in the teaching professions to apply for principalships and superin- she told the an- nual general meeting of the B.C. Teachers Federation Mrs. Dailly was the first B.C education minister to address convention hi three year0 She urged delegates to keep the needs of children in their classrooms foremost when mak- ing policy. Mrs. Dailly said she had no announcements to make at the convention because she wants full consultation with the BCTF before making major changes affecting teachers. "I don't intend to stand up here and drop she said. She said teachers must be in- volved in educational decision- making by the government and that a commission on educa- tion, to start soon, could lead to legislation "setting an en- tirely new direction' for edu- cation in B.C. Marg Gidley, will head the raft Acali in a study of fric- tion between men and women when traditional roles are re- versed and nationalties and cultures jumbled. The crew will have seven women and six men from twelve coun- tries. Anne Turner, a psychologist in Paris who helped to recruit the crew, said in an inter- view: "The men will be doing sub- ordinate things like taking pictures and doing the cook- ing. The woman captain has absolute charge of the raft, a woman diver will be respon- sible for repairs, and two women doctors will be mak- ing sure everyone stays alive. "The odd-numbered crew may be an element in making tensions. Married people were chosen because this fact p-esents a whole range of problems that the crew will have to come to terms with. Sexuality is a part of the study, but not the prime area. There will be frictions enough as it is." The organizer of the ex- pedition is Santiago Genoves, a Mexican anthropologist who was a member of Thor Heyer- dahl's Ra expeditions. He will make his own study of behav- ior on the raft and a govern- ment-owned Mexican tele- vision station, which has put up toward Acali's costs, will film the trip. The trip is expected to take between three and six months with departure from the Canary Islands between May 1 and 15th. The raft is ex- pected to wash up somewhere along the Yucatan Peninsula. While the expedition is go- ing on, Mrs. Turner said, psy- chologists will be checking the families the crew has left behind. Brothers meet A separation of 63 years was climaxed by a happy reunion when Fred Burton of Lethfaridge was visited by his borther Robert of Norfolk, England. The brothers, who had last seen each other in 1910, had but one other chance to visit each other in the First World War. But, at the time Mr. Burton was sent from Canada to serve in England, his brother was sent from England to serve in India. Plans for the present reunion were begun 10 months ago, with Mr. and Mrs. Robert Burton arriving last week by plane. They will be guests in the city for four weeks. Ann Landers JANE CONRAD Astronaut's family intrigued by speed HOUSTON (AP) Speed is king at the home of astronau Charles (Pete) Conrad. The spaceman's wife Jane has more to worry about than just her husband's vocation. Besides Conrad, who is get ting ready for the May 15 start of his fourth space flight, Sky- lab 1. there are four a! motorcycle, racing and flying enthusiasts. "It seems to be an inborn says Mrs. Conrad of the family fascination with speed and fast machines. "Pete to race motorcycles when he was 15 or so. and I guess nry boys aJl took after him> Jane Conrad has watched her husband rocket into outer space three times. On Gemini 5 and Gemini II. he crbitcd the earth- On ApoiJo 12. he became the third man to waJk on the moon. And as commander of the 28- dcyiab 1 mission, he will spend four weeks in space, longer than man has yet attcinfited- Wben he is not preparing for a space trip. Conrad drives race cars and has placed high Ptzainst professional drivers. He cnce raced power boats but gave Uiat up as ton dangerous.

Peter aJso is a pilot and flies solo around Texas in rented air- planes. Andrew is anxious to do the same. PLANES WORRY HER Mrs. Conrad says she doesn't worry a lot when her husband is racing cars or flying in space: "There are a lot of people looking out for him then. "The only thing I worry about is his flying back and forth across Hie country in a T-38, It's irrational. It's just a hang- up I have. I guess." The Conrads have lost four astronaut friends to plane crashes, and Conrad had a near-miss last year when bat weather and an electrical fail- ure forced him to bail out near Austin. Tex. Mrs. Conrad doesn't share the family enthusiasm: for mo- torcycles. "I did drive one around the Mock once. Wiben I proved I oouH do it, that's the last time I set foot on a motorcycle." She remembers the hectic early days of the space busi- ness. On Conrad's Gemini 5 mission in 3965, live teSevisjon cameras jammed the astro- naut's front lawn. 'The kids had never seen anything like it. It was like a liree-mg circus going tire whote time." Things wiH be different for fcylab, she says. "I'll probably go to my fam- ranch for a week, to break up time. ITs a good place to rdax." DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a cat hater and I think you owe our side one last word. Most of your letters have been from cat lovers. This is unfair. Dogs are required to be on a Isash in most cities, but our neighbor is permitted to let her six cats run wild. I have to put' up with cats run- ning across my roof in the middle of the night. They have jumped on the window sill of my son's room, scaring him half to death. Who will pay for the inside of my car when that lady's cat tears it up? Who will pay for the treatment of ringworm if my son gets it from those damned cats of hers? Or Cat- DEAR ANN LANDERS: You do a great service but sometimes you forget that the average reader does not know as much as you do about certain things. For ex- ample, you should clarify the word transvestite. There are three types; homosexual, bi- sexual and heterosexual. The first two need no explaining, but the third does. The male who enjoys dressing in wo- men's clothes may be a loner (a closet queen) or he may have a social life in drag with other heterosexual trans- vestites who enjoy one an- other's company but have no sexual interest in one another. This third group has a strong- er sex drive toward females Scratch -Fever, which Is a very serious illness. Cats are useless, dangerous, selfish and lazy. Our dog, on the other band, killed a three- foot water moccasin, last month. She guards our home from intruders and comforts us when we are sick or blue. I trust you will put this in print and even the score. Christi DEAR C.C.: Here's your letter, but the score between cat lovers and cat haters will never be even. Both will con- tinue to cling to their convic- tions and the battle will go on so long as there is one single cat left on the face of the earth. than most so-called straight males. I would further admonish women whose husbands have a part-time desire to be fe- males, to either understand the emotional release they derive from dressing up and accept it, or get a divorce. Nagging, harassment, threats and ridicule can make life hell for both. Thank Been Through It DEAR BEEN: My author- ities tell me that transves- tites can be homosexual, bi- sexual, or asexual. They also say a heterossxtial transves- tite's interest in women is no stronger than the straight male's. Thank you for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I want to comment on the teller written by a young hus- band who dislikes kids and now he is depressed because his wife wants a family. What were those two dumb- bells talking about when they were going together? How does it happen that this topic wasn't discussed during courtship? You said it would be unfair to deprive a woman of a family. Well, I say it would be equally unfair to pressure a man into having children if he doesn't want any. There are already too many people in the worM. DEATl ANN LANDERS: I am 22 years of age and. in my seventh month of preg- nancy. Would you believe my husband and I and his father have bean arguing for three months about the unborn child's name? They both in- sist that the child be named after his paternal grandfath- er. I hate the name, bat there's more to it than that. When I was a teen-ager my idol was Rudolph Valentino. I saw him in person once and I dreamed about him nearly every night after that for ten years. I promised myself when be died that I would To bring in more, unwanted by one parent or the other, would be a terrible mistake. Why didn't you set those kooks straight? An In- dividual DEAR IN: Please go back and read that letter again. You're mixing him np with another guy. This husband said be couldn't make up his mind whether or not he could be a good father, but his young wife had her heart set on having at least one child. Sometimes a mother's en- thusiasm can make up for a father's lack of it And that's what I told him. name my first child after him. (If it's a girl it vmM be Rudolpha.) Since I am the one who has been carrying this child and will be going through labor, don't you feel I am entitled to have a voke in naming the baby? They say I am crazy. I would like to have your opinion. Unpaid Debt To The Past DEAR UNPAID: I would not say you are crazy, but I wraM say you could use some help with arithmetic if you plan on writing another phony letter.

New York Times Service WASHINGTON About 900 patients have been enrolled so far in long-term studies spon- sored by the National Cancer Institute to determine what kind of breast cancer treat- ment is best. The mainstay of primary treatment for this form of can- cer is surgery, but there has been much public discussion and considerable controversy in recent months over the question of how much tissue needs to be removed with the cancer in order to minimize the risk of recurrence. The current surgical practice in the United States varies, and the range of possible sur- gery available today extends from removal of the cancer Itself with only a little sur- rounding tissue, to removal of the entire breast together tissue from the chest wall and armpit and even portions of some ribs, said Dr. Nathaniel I. Berlin, director of the insti- tute's division of cancer biology and diagnosis. The choice depends on the patient's condition, the sur- geons' judgement and some- times on the patient's prefer- ences as well. Altogether, Dr. Berlin said, there are seven different procedures, each dif- fering from the others in the extent of tissue removal. Radiation and sometimes treatment with anti-cancer drugs are also used in some cases, depending on the cir- cumstances. Officers of the institute say steps are being taken toward determining how extensive the surgery should be. The long-term results of treatment will be compared among pa- tients, some of whom will have so-called radical mastectomy and others total mastectomy with or without radiation. The.former type of operation involves removal of the entire breast and tissues in the arm- pit to which spread of cancer is most likely. The other total mastectomy involves removal of the breast, but not the other tissues. The Institute's program has been criticized on the grounds that it does not take in a wide enough range of possibilities, But Dr. Berlin said that it was necessary to determine first whether there was a difference in long-term results between the procedures being evaluated now. Later, when that kind of Jo- formation is available, the studies can proceed to evalua- tion of the less disfiguring al- ternatives, he and other lists of the institute said.
