Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE August Presidential palace home for young family France's first lady both elegant, practical Lynne Van Luven By ROSETTE HARGROVE PARIS The First Lady of France, 41-vear old Anne-Aymone Valerie D Estaing will not tackle the planning of the private presidential quarters at the Elyt-ee Palace until after the summer vacation With their four children the d Estaings are still living in the mansion they own in the swank district of Passy The president nas been content so far merely to occupy the official presidential offices Anne-Aymone Valerie d Estaing The fact is that the private quarters of France s> presidential residence are totally inadequate for a family of six inadequate for a family of six it was only in 1946 that the first modern kitchen was installed President Giscard d Estaing is not only the youngest president to be elected by the French but also the first to be the father of four teenagers Until France s presidents had been men well on in middle age with children if any married or living away from home Madame la presidente does not contemplate any revolutionary changes in the private apartments She has, however ordered the removal of the extremely avant garde works of art which her predecessor Madame Claude Pompidou had introduced to four ground-floor rooms But other design furnishings lighting and panelling will remain as they are for the time being What the Giscard d Estaing children are most anxious for is the enclosed swimming pool which had been planned lor this winter to be erected in a far corner of the presidential park But already a grand piano has been brought in for the president who likes to relax by plaving Mozart Beethoven and Chopin There is talk of renovating a mansion in a side street off the Elysee which Napoleon III built for Empress Eugenie s mother the Countess of Montijo There is also talk of reopening the tunnel which led trom there into the grounds of the Elvsee There is nothing in the Constitution which says that the president should live at the Elysee Madame Giscard d Estaing has declared It is evident that the First Lady has found favor with her compatriots During the presidential campaign they had learned that Anne-Aymone was no social butterfly, but led the life of a practical if wealthy establishment" wife and mother She has spent her life on down to earth jobs her houses (they own two family chateaux in the the children the gardens She is a dedicated gardener and is quite determined to take the floral decorations of the palace in hand Already the appearance of dwarf lemon trees (as at Versailles) in the hitherto severe palace courtvard can be traced back to her She will have a staff composed of 10 chefs 10 men servants, 5 linen women, 2 florists and 20 cleaning men There are 7 500 pieces of gold and silverware used for state banquets to take care of, plus 130 clocks to keep in working order The image of Madame Giscard d Estaing is that of the elegant pansienne, but not by any stretch of the imagination would she want to be considered a mirror of fashion She is inherently a sports style devotee shirts, sweaters, pleated skirts She and her two daughters have always dressed in the smart boutiques of the Faubourg Saint Honore and the Left Bank with her particular favor going to Jean- Louis Scherrer for formal gowns (he married a school friend) She is not interested in social life, attending only the few obligatory official functions, being rarely seen at private jet-set parties and never mentioned in social gossip columns When she and the president recently hosted the Shah and Empress of Iran, every woman was impressed by her elegant but simple white gown A tall, slender figure, she wears her hair swept back into a low chignon at the nape of the neck Asked who in the family kept tabs on the family budget, she replied "I do The poor man wouldn't have time, anyway She admits to being a pretty good cook but would far rather spend her time in a garden than bending over a hot stove Already there is a relaxed atmosphere in presidential circles The president has told his staff 'You can smoke when you want to, cigars cigarettes, a pipe I don't but that should not deter you The First Lady is conscious of the duties that await her "I want to create an office at the Elysee the main goal of which will be to probe into the hardship cases and come to the aid of every citizen in need of help First on the list are women left with many children, old people, parents of the handicapped, and humanizing the atmostphere of general hospitals She is also determined to do all she possibly can to help her husband realize his social program and his desire to make France an ever more prosperous country so that the housewife s market basket need no longer be a source of worry Negotiator named VANCOUVER (CPi A professional labor negotiator who is not a nurse joined the

Family Young swimmer takes on lake YOUNGSTOWN NY (AP) A 15-year-old girl began earlv Friday what she hopes will be a successful 32 mile swim across Lake Ontario to Toronto Cindv Nicholas of Scarborough Ont began the crossing at 2 20 am EOT trom this northwestern New York state community The water temperature was 71 degrees and the lake was calm with a light wind blowing The first person ever to swim the lake was another Canadian Marilyn Bell of Toronto who completed the swim in 20 hours on Sept 8 1954 She was 16 at the time Miss Nicholas also hoped to make the swim in about 20 hours Miss Nicholas is following the same route used by Miss Bell who was racing with famed English Channel swimmer Florence Chadwick who gave up the Lake Ontario attempt after 15 miles I ve always wanted to swim the lake after reading about Marilyn s accomplishment, Miss Nicholas said I ve been in training since the dav I started swimming when I was five years old she said We decided to make the effort today because the conditions were ideal The five-foot five inch, 135- pound Miss Nicholas, a Toronto area high school student said she had not felt mature enough to attempt the swim last year Miss Nicholas was accom- panied by two pace boats one an outboard motorboat and the other a sailboat With her were her father James her trainer Al Waites a Toronto swimming coach and Waites son, Bruce, 21 whose role was to pace her The plan was for Miss Nich olas to be fed three times dur- ing the crossing Food was to be passed to her in a cup on the end of a stick Not so long ago, in a land far hence, attaining equality among the sexes was a great problem Though the women of the land were a sane and admirable lot, talented in many areas, the men insisted pig-headedly that woman's place was alternately in the kitchens and the bedrooms of the nation The king and queen of that land (Serendipity by name) had offered bribes and prizes to encourage awareness among the male populace Finally, as a last and drastic resort, Queen Zoe issued a royal decreee, declaring the next fortnight as official Sex Object Days During this two weeks women would be the aggressors, and men would have to be the meek objects of their attention It had taken Queen Zoe an inordinate amount of persuasion to convince Egbert with whom she ruled the realm jomth and equally of the advisability of the decree A bit drastic isn t if" asked the king idly twirling his sceptre He regarded himself as an enlightened monarch but still Precisely responded his queen in that regal tone which brooked no opposition So the decree was posted and SOD were official throughout the land Citizens not conforming to the decree s stipulations were liable to heavy fines, in addition to the usual inflationary taxes paid annually The results within the small country were marvelloush chaotic Roval messengers ran night and day shredding of pairs of sneakers (for in truth the roads in SerendipiU were a scandal) carrying reports to the palace I say couldn t we tone it down a bit9 asked King Egbei t having just learned that the Royal Purser had been pinched and winked at bv his hitherto shy secretary The queen merely smiled and waved She was late lor the karate course she was teaching the palace ladies in waiting Obviously the Serendipity women had long memories mer were ogled and eyed accosted and whistled at, humored and then condescendingly dismissed An especially militant group of women began loitering about construction sites commenting loudh and sometimes lewdly on the physical attributes of the workers A few ot them became masters of the low whistle suggestive remark and unspoken invitation much to the embarrassment of the blushing men Husbands were warned to cut back on their ale consumption and take a good look in the mirror because once a man lost his tigure no woman would be interested in him any longer Young maids accosted men in tavens refusing to believe thev were there only to relax and not looking to be picked up Fellows sat bv telephones humbly waiting for their girlfriends to call Fathers warned their sons about walking alone after dark Female dress designers worked feverishly creating the most absurd and uncomfortable men s outfits imaginable On the eleventh dav it happened Zounds this has gone far enough bellowed the Lord High Chancellor and the minister ot foreign affairs in unison Both had just been jostled and accosted on the streets though both were over seventv and grandfathers several times over The chancellor had even been artlull> pinched beneath his impressive robes' The king agreed and a second decree was sent forth Women were to be regarded as persons equal to men those disregarding the law would be expel ed from Serendipitv The king and his advisors heaved a gusty sigh of rehei The queen just smiled i Club corner notes j Golden anniversary Mr and Mrs Bruno Michalski of Colernan were recently honored on the occasion of
