Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, August 22, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor TJEMEMBER WHEN you bought your first pair of draped pants or slacks they had to be black saddle shoes. high heels spikes they were and stocking seams to be kept straight and nylon blouses poodle cuts weighing 10 pounds less almost make today's fashions seem sane speaking of which be prepared to mn into boots in the shoe stores for wearing with today's or tomorrow's (which we hope never comes) midis. Really take care of the leg problem some women have with minis the mini isn't for everyone but it does (did) keep women weight-conscious now you can just hide your fondness for food under Monday's midi. The heavier fabrics come on much better in midis and the one appealing fashion note from those we've seen is the long mini with a midi coat. You'll see lots of long vests over sweaters and dresses for those who can stand the extra layer. Have you tried weighing yourself in a hospital lately? Actually it's quite pleasant to see the lower figure even though you know it can't be that low The metric system isn't all that new and different since 90 per cent of the world's population either uses the metric system or is in the change-over pro- cess. Golfers are known for their kind and generous attitude toward others on the course, moving the ball, forgetting strokes, toe-kick, etc. but it wasn't always that way. Back in the 17th century there was one caddie who learned not to muck about with the game. He was hanged for stealing a ball. And it shouldn't really matter where the instance took place but I'll tell you anyway. It was in Scot- land. And the Scottish blood in my veins tells me I should never have mentioned it. It just seemed so interesting what with the lower rates at the Henderson Lake Golf course and all While prices are fleeting out of the consumer's reach on every side, a group of Lethbridge tea- drinkers is protesting the price of tea in local res- taurants. They question why, when 60 tea bags can be bought retail for 79 cents in a supermarket should one tea bag and some hot water cost 20 cents. They point to the fact that for little more than a penny a tea bag, the customer is being soaked for 20 cents. They call for tea lovers to unite and protest. I'm with you all the way, and I'll add my own wee complaint. Coffee is more at home in a mug perhaps but tea isn't tea unless it's in a cup with less than a half-inch thickness. Fine china, we don't expect but not those ghastly heavy things either. The problem is the same with any kind of ser- vice. You pay for a new part for your television set or kitchen sink, and ?11.50 an hour for the labor involved in replacing it. And how about the Birmingham, Mich, dentist who is willing to pay to a dental hygienist for a 12-hour week plus apartment, mink coat, etc. He has to be kidding, even the plumbers would apply for a deal like that.

Mrs. John Erickson was re- elected vice president, Mrs. Eric Lyon secretary and Mrs. Erwin Pohl treasurer. The ap- pointive offices will soon be filled. The Lethbridge group is one of about 70 such groups throughout the Alberta-British Columbia District.

The executive is presently planning the coming year's ac- tivities which will include bible studies, special speakers, etc. "J MRS. CARL HAHN oiocai -.Jvappa The Pensioners and Senior Citizens Society of Lethbridge, the Originals, will have the monthly meeting at the YMCA, HHH's Physician Causes Row Menopause Limits Women's Leadership? By ROBERT TRAUTMAN WASHINGTON (Reuters) Would a lady president going through the menopause be able to make a sound judgment in a situation like the Cuban mis- sile crisis? At a time of growing contro- versy over women's rights, this explosive question is rumbling through high levels of the Dem- ocratic party. In a dialogue that so far has produced more heat than light, the personal physician of for- mer vice-president Hubert H. University Women Elect Neiv President Toronto (CP) Mrs. J. L. Black of Sackville. N.B., was elected president of the Cana- dian Federation of University Women. She succeeds Mrs. Robert Orange of Sudbury, Ont. Mrs. Black studied and has taught music at Mount Allison University in Sackville. A mother of four, she is ac- tive with the Victorian Order of Nurses, the Children's Aid So- ciety and works with retarded children. She has served as a regent and on t h e senate of Mount Allison. She was installed as federa- tion president on the final day of the triennial meeting at- tended by 400 delegates. Mrs. 0. R. Hougen, Vancou- ver, and Sdith Lynch Mc- Clearn, Liverpool, N.S., vice- presidents; and Mrs. Donald B. Fay, Sackville, treasurer. Humphrey has contended that the female's leadership poten- tial is limited because of her physiological and psychological makeup, particularly the men- strual cycle and menopause. Angry rebuttals were soon fired by Patsy Mink, a Demo- cratic representative from Ha- waii, and Betty Friedan, mili- tant author of The Feminine Mystique and former president of the National Organization for Women. Dr. Edgar Berman, who cam- paigned for Humphrey in his unsuccessful bid for the presi- dency in 1968, lit the fire at a policy planning session of the Democratic national committee April 30, but the resulting row has only recently become known. SMS like Vietnam and the Mid- dle East, and Patsy Mink brought up women's re- called Berman. He suggested that the men- strual cycb and menopause made women unsuitable for im- portant leadership positions.

ORCHARD LETHBRIDGE VISIT EISTEDDFOD Mr. and Mrs. Ross Hughes of Lethbridge took a moment out from a tour of Britain to pose with a little Welsh lass in traditional Welsh dress at the Eisteddfod, Wales. The Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales features competition in music, poetry, drama arts and crafts, and dancing. Mr. and Mrs. Ross were both born in North Wales.

"AH things being he went on, "I would still rather have had a male J. F. K. make the Cuban missile crisis deci- sions than a _female of similar age who could possibly be sub- ject to the curious mental aber- rations of that age group." Mrs. Friedan termed Ber- man's remarks "medievil" and and suggested that some men in their 50s also suffer from meno-. pause-like phenomena. Mrs. Mink wrote to Hum- phrey, the party's tiUilar head, called Berman a bigot, and said that "as a physician, his use of the menstrual cycle and menopause to ridicule all wom- en as neurotic and emotionally unbalanced was as indefensible and astonishing as those who still believe, let alone dare state, that the Negro is physiol- ogically inferior." Humphrey, who is running for the Senate in Minnesota, immediately dissociated him- self from Berman's remarks. Berman said in a response to Mrs. Mink's. letter to the for- mer vice-president that it was "a typical example of an or- dinarily-controlled woman un- der the raging hormonal imbal- ance of the periodic lunar cycle proving the point against which vou rail."
