Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, August 12, 1970 In My Opinion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer COSMETICS have become as much of a part of the family shopping list as coffee or aspirins. Through advertising and miraculous promises, women seem to be getting led down the garden path as to what they need and to what or who actually needs them. The cosmetic industry, which includes deodorants, hair sprays, face powders and eye make-up is one huge industry that gobbles Up money to the tune of seven million dollars in the U.S. alone last year. A woman becomes the advertising, world's "ideal" girl and wears scented strawberry lips, spice face, lilac neck, Far Eastern ears and arms and to top the whole terrible conglomeration lemon fresh body talcum. Do the people who make the eye charts ever stop to consider that most women don't have the ex- pertise to draw microscopic lines? Not only migiy the women have lids top small to dust on four dif- ferent colors, but they may never want to appear in technicolor anyway. Yes, sir, the ONLY reason she caught her man was because of those seductive-white teeth, luscious- oyster orange lips, glittering face dust or alluring perfume. And my goodness, thumbs down on the woman who ever dared to mix the lines of cleansing items. Don't you understand it is disastrous if the penetrating cleanser of one brand ever came into contact with the astringent of another? It could be Hiroshima all over again. The home-style facial treatments such as rubbing the skin with olive oil and salt could never compare to the smoothness attained by using homogenized and sand (crushed oyster mixed with water, according to current cosmetic specialists. In my opinion, there is just one thing to remem- ber, no matter how much, or how little, money is spent on cosmetics, no woman can look beautiful if her skin is not kept healthy and clean. The whole cosmetic revolution could be complete- ly eliminated if the law passed by English Parliament in 1770 were still in effect: "That all women of whatever rank, pro- fession or degree, whether virgins, maids or widows, that shall, from and after such Act, upon, seduce, and betray into matrimony, any of His Majesty's subjects, by the scents, paints, cosmetic washes, artificial teeth, false hair, Spanish wool, iron stays, hoops, high heeled shoes, bolstered hips, shall incur the penalty of the law in force agajnst witch- craft and like misdemeanors, and that the marriage, upon conviction shall stand null and void." First Round Win For Martha Griffiths Women's Rights May Enter U.S. Constitution WASHINGTON (AP) resentative Martha Griffiths t counting on woman power tc propel through the U.S. Senat< and the state legislatures a con stittitional amendment g n a r anteeing women equal rights with men. "A lot of things have the Michigan Demo crat said after House of Repre- sentatives approved the amend ment Monday. She had priec the measure from the judiciary committee shelf where it ha( collected dust for 47 years anc Perfect Wedding No Ceremony BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) Except for one prob- lem it was a perfect wedding party. The Montreal couple posed for wedding pictures, ac- cepted the gifts, sipped the champagne, cut the cake and sat down with 30 relatives and friends for a wedding ban- quet. But attractive blonde Diane Shaw, 25, and Keith Bailey, 25, were only pretending they were married. Keith forgot to call at the local register office to sign an intent-to-marry form, and by the time the slip-up was dis- covered it was too late. They had flown to Bourne- mouth from Canada so rela- tives and friends could see them marry. They couldn't stay another day because they had to catch the return trip of their charter flight. Since all the arrangements had been made, they decided to go ahead anyway with the reception for the wedding that wasn't. Said Keith's mother, Peggy Bailey of Bournemouth: "We were all disappointed for the couple but it was pointless cancelling every- thing. We would still have the bills to pay." Next day the couple flew jack to Montreal, still single but- presumably planning to try MARIE-LOUISE Clearance 2 TABLES OF HATS EACH-BALANCE OF HATS PRICED SALE STARTS THURSDAY AT P.M.

BACK TO SCHOOL engineered (he floor victory. The vote was 350 to 15. If it passes the Senate, the amendment still must be ap- proved by 38 of the 50 state leg- islatures before becoming a part of the constitution. The amendment says "equal- ity of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex." Other backers are not so opti- mistic as Mrs. Griffiths about chances of the amendment. Representative Shirley Chisolm (Dem. who says she has felt more prejudice as a woman than as a Negro, is fearful that men who run the game of poli- tics still may block the pro- posal. The galleries, packed with women, weren't buying the ar- guments of Emmanuel Cellar (Dem .N.Y.) that "there is as much difference between a male and a female as there is between a horse chestnut and a chestnut horse. Vive la differ- ence." Celler seeking more commit- tee study of the amendment, contended no one could tell what effect it would have on a wide variety of laws, such as those relating to t e r n i t y, rape, military service, family matters and protection for working women. He promised early hearings if the measure were sent back to his commit tee, but the House brushed tin suggestion aside. Only Representative Leonoi K. Sullivan (Dem. Mo.) of th- 10 women members missed the vote. She stayed away deliber ately so as not to embarrass her female colleagues. She opposes the amendment, arguing as some men that it wili end man; protections for women. Senate Majority Leader Miki Mansfield (Dem. Mont.) told re- porters he would try to work ou a procedure to assure Senate action on the amendment this year. He said it was his plan to in- tercept the measure when it ar- rives at the Senate from the A HAIR RAISING DEVELOPMENT "unisex" hair dressing salons have been intro- duced in London, advancing togetherness into that fortress of the female, the beauty parlor.

House and not let it go immedi- ately to the judiciary committee as would be the normal proce- dure. Then he said he would discuss with Senator James 0. Eastland (Dem. the judiciary chairman, an agreement for tliB committee to return it to the Se- nate for action. Sonic of the amendment's backers have feared the com- mittee's conservatives might hold it up indefinitely. Florida Radio Station Turns On Quebec Tourists TORONTO (CP) A FrencI radio program in Florida? Unlikely as it sounds, a for mer Toronto woman is working on just that. For the last seven months Agnes Osndron, a mother o six, has been a disc jockey playing French records for passing Quebec tourists in Forl Lauderdale. Twenty-four years ago, Mont- real born Mrs. Gendron came to Toronto to marry and 14 years later left for Florida. In all that time she had not one iota of radio experience. She got the job through a ocal radio executive who, no- icing the growing number of Quebec license plates passing hrough the area, felt a French lour would fit well into his sta- ion's programming. He called on Allan Gendron i Fort Lauderdale hotel man- ager, and Mr. 'Gendron slig- hted his wife as hostess of he show. "My trial run was disas- she conceded. "You really have to be relaxed to do radio, to concentrate." Once on the air, Mrs. Gen- dron faced a multitude of prpb- of which was where o find French Canadian rec- irds.
