Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-17 Differences few between male, female diplomats Best of buddies Sonja, a three-year-old German Shepherd, is Mrs. Karen Marr, of Brantford, Ont, says the two never seen without Mr. Pixie, a six-month-old animals are inseparable. Sonja has asssumed the role Siamese cat, when he goes for a walk. Their owner, of protector since Mr. Pixie was three months old. Every 10 years marks a change in woman's life THE BETTER HALF TORONTO (CP) At 71, Eva Waddell Mader Mac- donald is embarking on yet another career with her ap- pointment as chancellor of the University of Toronto. "Every 10 years has mark- ed a major change in my school, marriage and different phases of my medical said Dr. Macdonald. "Now I am retir- ing from clinical medicine and returning to university life." Her appointment as chan- cellor filled the vacancy created when Pauline McGibbon was named lieutenant-governor of On- tario. In 39 years on the staff of Women's College Hospital in Toronto, Dr. Macdonald pio- neered immunization and can- cer detection Clinics for women and children. The last landmark before she took office July 1 was arranging for publication a week earlier of Carlotta Hacker's The Indomitable Lady Doctors, a collection of biographies of Canadian women outstanding in the medical field.

No Children under 16 allowed project of the Federation of Medical Women in Canada. Dr. Macdonald, who lost her job at Women's College Hospi- tal temporarily during the De- pression because she was married, said all women must keep on re-educating themselves, especially women doctors. She stayed away from medi- cine for only a few months when she gave birth to her two sons and rescheduled her ca- reer around her family. Dr. Macdonald said women doctors have every door open to them today but the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) is creating difficulties for all doctors with every part of medicine under attack by the public and doctors being charged with making too much money. Dr. Macdonald. who went through Dalhousie Medical College in Halifax and then re- ceived a fellowship in the Uni- versity of Toronto's depart- ment of hygiene and preven- tive medicine, refused a marriage proposal when she graduated from medical school, only marrying seven years later. She said that if she had mar- ried after graduation she would never have made it as a doctor. Much has changed in pre- ventive medicine since Dr. Macdonald began her career 40 years ago, she said. Children no longer died of smallpox or diptheria and birth control had become this generation's preventive medicine.

My husband and I agreed that this would be an annual event and the same went for her birthday. I also said it would be O.K. with me if they slept together on those two nights of the year, for old time's sake. I realize I'm very broadminded, but it paid off. My husband thinks I am" wonderful and his ex-wife never gives us any trouble. Actually, most men do what they want anyway, so a smart wife says, "Go and then she doesn't get faked out.

If it's all right with you, it's all right with me, lady, but I'm glad he's yours and not mine. Dear Ann Landers: Boys who have sex in their early teens don't think of it ing up their virginity" but "gaining their manhood." At least that's the way it was with me until I met a girl I really cared about. Most boys will go as far as a girl will let them. I will always hate the girl I lost my virginity to. I felt as if she seduced me just to add another scalp to her belt. Now that I'm a mature man. I believe there is a great deal of strength in virginity, for both males and females. It DOES make a difference if people can stay straight before marriage. They learn together and have more respect for one another. I plan to give my sons this advice when the time comes and I hope they do better than I did. Upland, Indiana Dear Up: I received a sur- prising number of letters from young boys who expressed the same feelings. Those letters were real day-brighteners. My thanks to all who wrote. Dear Ann Landers: I thought I was a social drinker, but it turns out I'm a social drunk. I don't believe I'm a real alcoholic because after I KO off the deep end 1 can't look at booze for two or three days. And I don't use booze as a crutch, either. It's just that when I do have a drink I can't stop until I'm smashed. I know darned well I must quit drinking completely. Can you give me a few words of advice that might help me. or must I go to A.A.? Lauretta From Chicago Dear L.: Anyone who says, "When I do have a drink I can't stop until I'm needs more than a few words of advice. Go to A.A. Is alcoholism ruining your life?

Box 3346, Chicago, Illinois 60654. Mr. and Mrs. John Clark of Dunfermline, Scotland, former residents of Lethbridge, are holidaying here for three weeks. Mr. Clark was a former member of Supinas Soccer Team. They are staying with Mr. and Mrs. David Hogg, 1287 10th Ave. N. CAIRO (AP) In a short kilt and red turtleneck sweater, 25-year-old Beth Jones looks more like an American college girl than the American consul in Egypt. "Some look sur- prised when they first come into my office and see she said. Beth, young, single and at- tractive, thinks the astonished first looks are merely "amus- ing." "Once we sit down to begin working on whatever problem they have, the surprise goes away and it's all she said. There are fewer than 10 women diplomats among some 800 men working in Cairo embassies, a small mi- nority in a long male-domi- nated profession. Beth and the other women diplomats said there are no tasks a woman diplomat can- not do. They said they are too busy doing their jobs to even think about any differences between male and female dip- lomats. But getting past the first as- tonished looks is a hurdle at- tractive diplomats face that their male col- leagues do not. "They say, here is this woman with long blonde hair and long is she do- ing said Countess Helga Strachwitz, 32, the leggy, blonde cultural attache of the West German embassy. "So you have to prove right away that you are not more efficient than men but efficient." Solmaz Dinzer, 28, Turkish first secretary, said her single, feminine status may even give her an advantage in the diplomatic game. "It's easier for us to get in- vited to parties and to meet she said. "Men will look at me perhaps first as a woman, but then you have to establish yourself as a profes- sional, to turn that meeting into a useful diplomatic con- tact." At least one male diplo- bachelor and a single, at- tractive diplomats like Sol- maz and Beth are "over- booked." "They are asked out by ev- eryone, even people of much higher rank, just to fill in the said Georges Moussa, a French embassy at- tache. Beth and Solmaz do not see themselves as "decorative" additions to a diplomatic din- ner table. "I am the master of my own time." said Solmaz. "I have no one to worry about but myself. I can go to the em- bassy early and come home late at night. It's up to me. "But I am enough of a Mid- dle Eastern woman that if I ever feel the need to get married, I will probably leave the foreign service." But Beth Jones is enough of a modern American woman to toss off the question of marriage: "Oh God. no. Are you kidding? I don't know what it would be like to be married. I don't think about it. "I know I'll never stop working and I'll never accept any husband's dominance. If I got assigned to a new coun- try, he'd have to follow. There would be no question about it." Countess Strachwitz's hus- band, a United Nations offi- cial in Jordan, flies to Cairo to see his wife and young son on weekends. "It's not that easy." the countess said. "But you can overcome. You get taken to the water and you swim. That's all."
