Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Chris Stewart The Lethbridge Herald 4th Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, August 14, 1974 "Use a Cowichan suggested the lucky young fisherman watching us shove off from shore ever 1 9ueried- "well, I've heard of My only recollection of Cowichan was the Indian tribe on Vancouver Island famous for their Indian sweaters a place name and a river, but a fishing spoon never! We had a variety of lures in our tackle box including flat fish, deadly dicks flies golf tee spinners and even Ford fenders, so named because they resemble Model T fenders but no Cowichan spoons But believ- ing the young lad was right, we had noted his prize Catch we hurried down to the Waterton townsite to purchase the recommended tackle, and sure enough, just as predicted, in no time flat we were hauling in beautiful Eastern Brook and Rain- DOW trout. What a wonderful introduction to our Waterton holiday the 203-square-mile paradise, hugging the Alberta-B.C Montana border, set apart for recreational purposes in 1895 because thoughtful individuals believed this area should be preserved for posterity. Thomas Blakiston of the Palliser Expedition who dis- covered Waterton lakes in 1858 had named this beauty spot after Charles Waterton, the 18th century English naturalist. The park had been subsequently linked to Glacier National Park in Mon- tana, making it the first international peace park in the world I he idea had originated in 1931 at the initial goodwill meeting of the Rotary Clubs of Alberta and Montana. This gem. straddling the Continental Divide, had originally been a stronghold of the hostile Blackfoot Indian Federation Then, with traces of oil being found at Lineham Creek in 1886 (Alberta's first oil producing well was drilled in the park in 1902) and the subsequent gradual settling of the area George "Kootenai" Brown, later the park's first warden and acting park superintendent, had petitioned that the area be made a national park. One of 28 such parks across Canada from the Pacific Rim on Vancouver Island to Kejimkujik in Nova Scotia each with its own distmctives, Waterton is known as the park where the mountains meet the Prairie. Here, so close to Lethbridge, the red osier dogwood moun- tain ash and elderberry grow in abundance and in August the ower reaches are carpeted with white angelica, cow parsnips lupins and larkspur. The alder, black spruce, waterbirch and cottonwoods skirt the marshlands; the alpine larch and hngleman spruce, the slopes and lichens, mosses and dwarf lorget-me-nots crouch in the high reaches. Here time stands still. I spent an hour watching a tiny two- inch trout fend for food among the rocks of Cameron Creek Overhead more than 235 species of birds fill the air from the common loon, mallard, herons and bitterns to the exotic trumpeter swans. Thick deciduous forests mark the wet lands and high above the barren crags, parched and brittle with age the rocks lurch towards the sky. This is the home of the plains bison, a large species of buf- alo with a massive head, a particularly high hump and relative- ly short tail. It is also the wapiti's home and the habitat of the bighorn sheep, once common throughout most of the mountain reg.on of western North America with an estimated population of in the 1850's and reduced to 2 500 by 1915 Pages 33-40 _____ Survey shows quality of marriage not affected by pre-marital sex By ROBERT SHIELDS London Observer Moralists are apt to express the view that the best prescription for marital hap- piness is pre-marital chastity. Under the old "double stan- dard" it was widely assumed, however, that while young men could be excused for sow- ing their wild oats young women should only sew samplers. In 1953 Kinsey reported that the double standard had vir- tually given way to a single standard men and women both claiming the right to pre- marital coital experience. He also contended that both sexes maintained that pre-marital sex had no adverse effect on the quality of later marriage. To test the validity of the latter assertion. Dr. B.N. Ard, of the University of Michigan' asked 161 couples who had been married 20 years to com- plete a questionnaire on the relationship between pre- marital experience and the quality of marriage. Of this group 45 per cent of the men reported that they had intercourse with their spouses prior to marriage. Only 39 per cent of the wives admitted to this which at least tells us something about research questionnaires! Herald Family Thirty-two per cent of the husbands (and nine per cent of the wives) reported that they had had pre-marital inter- course with individuals other than their future spouses, but individuals for whom they had felt "considerable affection." Twenty per cent of the husbands (but only one per cent of the wives) reported pre-marital intercourse with "casual dates." Asked if they thought pre- marital sexual experience had had any bearing on the quality of their later approximately 60 per cent of both husbands and wives could detect no significant effect. About one in five of those questioned (both men and women agree on this) were convinced that pre-marital sexual experience had had a It is a place of shimmering lakes, chattering streams forested trails and lacey waterfalls where one is confronted by a family of scurrymg ground squirrels, as I was yesterdav or a doe and her fawn sauntering leisurely. Here pine-edged Crvpt Bertha, Carthew and Anderson lakes nestle peacefully 'neath the azure sky and only the waterfalls plummetting from the glaciers high above Cameron Lake break the stillness The family camped beside us in the 129-unit Crandall Moun- tain campsite brought their caged budgie along while others brought motorcycles, canoes, rubber rafts, rowboats and ample hiking gear. Some stay in converted buses and milk trucks, campers tents and trailers, while some prefer to sleep out under the stars. There is no class-system here. It appears everyone desires anonymity. The one thing in common is that campers who frequent our National parks prefer natural things instead of subdivisions and concrete, high-rises and city bustle. Each day is filled with new discoveries whether it's coming upon the stately glacier lily or the sprightly bobolink. One can pursue his own interests in the wilds or participate in the daily naturalists' hikes and motor caravans to the park's beauty spots or merely choose to be an armchair participant by attending the evening slide presentations and lectures. But one thing is certain, you can't stay at Waterton and be the same again. Here you gain a deeper appreciation of nature and its function and you acquire a determination similar to Kootenai Brown's to preserve it for those still to come It was this dedication which triggered the National Parks Act of 1950 which specifies that National Parks are "dedicated to the people, for their benefit, education and enjoyment and must re- main unimpaired for future generations Equality The Spanish govern- ment's announcement this week that women will have the same rights in the bullring as men is a vic- tory for Angela Hernan- dez, 24, a leader for women's rights in the bullring. beneficial effect on their marriages whether this had taken place with their future spouses, "others with affec- tion" or (in the case of the husbands) casual dates. About half this proportion 10 per cent of both husbands and wives felt that pre-marital sex had had a harmful effect on the quality of their marriages. Among those partners who had had no intercourse before marriage, once again the ma- jority felt that pre-marital chastity had had no discerni- ble effect on the marriage. About half the wives (and 27 per cent of the husbands) thought that their marriages had benefited by reason of their previous abstinence. Eight per cent of the husbands, however, and five per cent of the wives gave it as their opinion that pre- marital chastity had been a disadvantage having an adverse effect on the quality of the marriage. These findings do not sup- port the view that pre-marital sexual experience damages the quality of later marriage. The great majority of those who have been married for 20 years feel it is either irrele- vant or actually beneficial. The survey does not tell us anything, of course, about couples who do not manage to stay married for 20 years and so cannot Suggest anything about the link between pre-marital sex and marriage breakdown. But it is worth noting that the survey's long-established couples with presumably successful marriages had married in the early 1950s, and that near- ly half of them had had pre- marital sex in the days when this was widely regarded as promiscuous and an unsound basis for married life.
