Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Auguil it, 1970 THE LCTHBRIDGE HERALD 15 From Suffrage To Status Part Three Are Marriage And Family Obstacles? By ALTSON GODDAM If the feminists win their most radical demand, the hand that rocks the cradle will be papa's. At least, part of the time anyway. Impossible? Feminists want both marital partners to share parenthood and household chores. They also favor day-care centers for children of working mothers, the repeal of abortion laws and the dissemination of birth con- trol information. Feminists claim that new trends and problems have made the old concept of father as the breadwinner and mother as the child-rearer and house- keeper about as dated as the horse-and-buggy. The women who find fulfillment in being "George's wife and Henry's mother" may be startled at this viewpoint. But long before the first modern feminist hoisted a picket sign, house- keeping thanks to gadgetry and modern food processing methods and the lifestyle of millions of modern mothers had changed. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. PHONE 323-7684 mm These changes include: The trend toward earlier marriages and smaller fami- lies. (With tlie threatening pop- ulation explosion, pressures for legislation to curb births from tax relief to abortion re- peal will undoubtedly in- crease.) The economic impact of almost 30-million women in the labor market, with 10.6 million of them mothers with children under 18. (With increasing ed- ucational opportunities for women, both on the college level and in continuing educa lion programs for mature women, this trend is bound to accelerate.) The medical advances that have increased the life span of women well beyond their re productive years, raising the dual specter of the "empty nest" and possible widowhood, particularly for women whose lives have been devoted exclu- sively to home and children. Long before the arrival of THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Here's a listof jobs I want done around here this don't think It will doyou any good to lose it, because I made a carbon copy." tho "empty nest" period, home-sweet-home becomes an inescapable prison for many housewives, according to Rich- ard E. Farson, psychologist. He said: "The average woman who bears her last child before age 30 is subject to 40 years or more of life when her children are in school or grown." ANTI-FEMINISTS Critics of the feminist posi- tions on motherhood are not. m short supply. Dr. Benjamin Sp'ock claims the old-fashioned role of motherhood has lost ap- peal because it lacks status. He suggests that girls be educated to view motherhood with pride. Even the proposal for day- care centers is attacked. Dr. Abram Kardiner, former head of the department of psychia- try at Columbia University, warns: "You can't pay anyone to love your child." Or your husband, ac- cording to a feminist. She said: "When my husband got sick, I took care of him. But when I got sick, he got sick." THE FUTURE Dr. Judd Marmor, clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, believes modern women have choices that were never Before available. "They can choose to be housewives and mothers, or they can choose to fulfill themselves in some kind of career." What will be the choice for the woman in the year 2000? Perhaps Russian astronaut Valenlina V. Tereshkova-Niko- laycva, who has achieved the distinction of being the world's only woman space veteran, summed it up best: "I strongly feel that no work done by a woman in the field of science or culture or whatever, how ever vigorous or demanding can enter into conflict with he ancient 'wonderful mission' tt love, to be loved or with her craving for the bliss of mother hood." The Homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN New non-woven blankets ar the result of a new method making blankets for instit lional and home use. It h been developed in the Unit States. It is a case of polyurethan foam bonded to a nylon net fc added strength. The surface the foam is coated with a colo ed resin, and colorless nylo fibres are drawn electroma netically into the resin an heat-set in place. Designs may be added b controlling the length of nylo flock, or by surface printing. Apparently the netic flocking process is mor durable than the tradition chemical adhesives used flocking.

You asked about the new dietetic soft drinks, so here is c reply from the Food and Drug Directorate. The true label story Is on the bottle caps and the carton Eead carefully, the products are cyclamate free but not ne- cessarily sugar free. Dietetic soft drinks carry label statement which specifies whether or not they contain sugar and their calorie value. Manufacturers of dietetic sof drinks have been permitted to use up their old returnable bot ties for a while but they have been required to provide new caps and to apply special stick ers on cartons. The sticker in dicates the presence of sugar and the absence of cyclamates The accurate label informa tion appears on the CAP anc not on the bottle. Facts on calorie content, presence sugar and absence of cycla mates roll be written on thi CAP. For the tune being disre- gard information on the bottle itself. Proposed Care Labelling You have undoubtedly beei reading about the system of care labelling instructions pro- by the government. As understood it, the labelling is voluntary on the part of the manufacturer, but those who choose to label will use the symbols, permanently affixed to the garment, to indicate care for the total garment. Some "arment manufac- turers appear to be all in fa- vor, others opposed, initially. I found it quite interesting to note the company attitude to ;he matter of care labelling. We may find ourselves voting against them at the cash reg- ister!
