14 THE LETHBRIBGE HERALD Thundoy, Auguil 12, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor POLF. Tlie very word gets muffled in your mouth. It's one of the very few games in the world which has been a success even though it's not a spectator sport and isn't played in teams. Oh, goiters do play the game together in pairs and teams but it's a loosely knit arrangement, mostly held together by a friendly business tie. and whether or not the family is going away for the weekend. There are two places where you can watch golf. One is via the television set if you can convince the children that they don't want to watch their favorite cartoon. This is often very depressing. The camera pans the backs of a lot of people standing around, the announcer speaks in hushed tones and the principal character often looks very sau. If the funeral aspects of this form of entertain- ment begin to pall, you can venture outdoors to watch the real thing from afar, that is. Henderson Lake on a Sunday morn is ideal. The mosquitoes are still full from last night's feast and it's too early for the Sunday mobs. Quiet is essential to enjoy the game fully. It's not only the sights, you see, but the sounds of the game as well. Find a bench on the north side of the lake, direct- ly opposite the Henderson Lake Golf course. Try to find a bench which has not been overturned or carved up too badly splinters, you know. Direct your gaze across the calm waters of the lake to where the hustle and bustle of the day has already begun. Your eye will pick up an overloaded baby buggy steaming into view. Several people in sports attire will climb out and begin to search the grass for a good spot to begin playing. Sometimes it takes a long time for them to seem to find the right spot to begin, and often one player is quite far off from the other players. For some obscure reason, a player will choose to begin beside a big puddle of water or in the sand, or behind a tree. The only reason for doing this must be that they are the better golfers and are more willing to try lo play from what must be a more difficult place to play. Everyone takes a turn at swinging a club but often one player will be in more of a hurry than others and gets farther ahead than the rest. They pack up their clubs, get in the carl and find another spot farther on clown the lawn. The clubs must be delicate in structure since everyone seems to carry a number of them. Perhaps they break easily or something. That pretty well takes care of the sight part. The sound part is rather intriguing. Every once in a while when the golfers go by. there's a plop in the water. Everything seems to stop at this point ami there's a little silence. It's similar in nature to the hushed atmosphere you see on television and one has the eery feeling that something has just died. Well, that's about all there is to golf and it's easy to see why it isn't considered an exciting spectator sport and why people settle for early Sunday morn- ing. There's one thing to be said in its favor though over, say football. You never see anyone going around patting each other on the rear end, or anywhere!

WASHINGTON (AP) Seven women's groups and several well-known women have asked Iho Supreme Court to protect "Ihe right of reproduction auto- nomy" by permitting medical abortions everywhere in the United States. In a fricml-of-cour! brief in cases from Georgia and Texas, Hit organizations and 47 women, i.'icliiding anthropologist grct Mead, said they were not advocaling abortion as a neces- sarily desirable solution to per- sonal or social problems. "We do contend, Ihey said through a lawyer, each woman has the right to make the decision for herself uiJnipeded by re.slriclive laws" except for those regulating the practice of medicine. Laler Ihis year the court will hear arguments on the Georgia and Texas cases whose central issue is whether states may con- tinue to Kay which abortions are legal and whieh are not. Before lhat, however, the court must decide if it has iurisdiction to rule. FINDS A CONFLICT The brief said fundamental rights of women are in conflict willi Ihe laws of nearly all states. By restricting the cir- cumstances for a lawful abor- tion, the brief said, 'women are deprived of dignity and equality and compelled lo produce "vast numbers of unwanted children." Additionally, the brief argued, legalizing medical abortions would save lives since illegal abortions generally are per- formed in unsafe facilities. About women die each year from criminal abortions, at ihe rate of 100 deaths for each abortions. By contrast, the appeal said, theie arc only three deaths per abortions when the oper- ation is performed by a doctor in a hospital. Libraries planned BALTIMORE, lid.
