Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta iv in cj Pop artist reproductions outsell the old masters LONDON Repro- ductions of his most famous painting outsell those of the Mona making Russian- bom Vladimir Tretchikoff the world's truly artist. Tretchikoff's green-faced Chinese Girl looks down on dinner-tables and living-rooms all over North Amer- ica and South where he now and his other distinctive studies of particularly oriental and are inuii'SDsely popu- lar. Yet he has certainly never received the critical acclaim for on pop- art pioneer Andy Warhol and his representational paintings of soup-cans ar.d Elvis Pres- ley. Tretchikoff. who got his first big break in Canada in 1952 when a mining million- aire named Jack Hammel bought up most of his exhibi- tion at a Toronto department can afford to thumb his nose at critical disdain. In his autobiography Pi- geon's published here by he recalls how a South African critic's fe- rocious attack on his dering to cheap sensation and lachrymose sentimental- merely brought floods of xdsitors to the derided exhibi- tion in Cape Town. Tretchikoff frankly revels in his phenomenal success. Since 2.5 million devotees have flocked to 43 international ex- hibitions to discuss and buy prints of Ms he is crying all the way to the bank about critical snubs. In his somewhat disjointed written in col- laboration with South African author Anthony Tretchikoff recalls when he was under house arrest by the occupying Japanese in an inverted glass at a spirit seance spelled out that his greatest success would come from a BcK-portrait and an He did several Chinese fe- male studies in South Africa before spotting the waitress in a San Francisco restaurant who inspired the final version of Chinese Girl. The world- wide success of this picture still is a mystery to he says. would never have be- lieved anyone who told me in advance that one day I would paint a picture that would ap- peal literally not only to the European races but to Orientals and Af- ricans as Noting that all his early years were spent in he ruminates that perhaps the explanation is that mind and soul went into the paint- ing. Somehow perhaps I caught the essence of Chinese womanhood.'' In Tretchikoff gleaned an unexpected public- ity boost when he confided to a vivacious brunette at a Montreal cocktail party that he thought women should be shadows of their in fact. Next he saw the whole conversation in The Ga- zetts under the Sees Woman as Slave of Golden Mile SENIOR CTIZENS' CENTRE Nest There will be a corn and wiener roast at p.m. in Indian Battle Park.

Women's pay situation unsatisfactory By CY FOX BRUSSELS The possibility of international court action against member states of the European Com- mon Market has been broached here as part of a new move by the economic community's policy-planning commission to ensure equal pay for women. undeniable prog- ress has been the situ- ation is still far from satisfac- says the commission in a report on equality of pay in the Common Market as be- tween men and women. therefore becomes es- sential that now a deci- sive impetus should be given in the search for a complete solution to this Many advocates of women's Herald think PART IV PICTURE QUIZ 5 POINTS This U.S. official denied allegations he accepted kdcklMaka from contractors.

The commission says that will start proceedings against certain member states which have not yet complied with the formal and direct obligations imposed on them by Article In the first this may mean action against Luxembourg and another country usually considered a model of Holland. Under Common Market the procedure is that Luxembourg and if would be summoned to explain to the commission why they are reported lagging behind in enabling women to assert their equal-pay rights by legal means if such citi- zens consider themselves wronged in this respect. If the commission is unsa- tisfied with the the Dutch and Luxembourg gov- ernments might find them- selves sued by the Common Market authorities in the Eu- ropean court. The unofficial market feel- ing is that the very process of being summoned to explain themselves before the com- mission or the court would be enough to embarrass the al- leged delinquent states into abiding by the treaty clause they would be charged with violating. the pressure of community-wide public opin- ion would be a big factor in bringing them to heel.

ANSWERS ON PAGE Just Jude By JUDE TURIC RELINQUISHING the joys of spinsterhood doesn't come easily to me. And with a scant two days left to en- joy complete freedom before the final it's becoming apparent that my friends have been waging a discreet tug-of-war. That in itself doesn't both- er me. The problem I'm the trophy and the contest is between those who are sin- gle and those who are mar- ried. Tlhe winners get to add me to their list of conquests. S u bversive activities have been going on for quite some and it's been only re- cently that they've come out into the open and are blatant- ly fighting over my carcass. A normal evening out with the two opposing factions be- gins working up to a point where either a single or a married will break the ice and the digs begin. Singles usually take the upper hand and point out an attractive fella sitting across from suggest that we try to get his and then turn sad-eyed to me and apol- ogize for forgetting my up- coming marital status.

The see-saw battle rages for hours at a time and gen- erally finds both parties ex- hausted and no closer to vic- tory. Among the unpleasant wifely duties brought up by single friends are countless meals to stacks of dirty breakfast dishes waiting for me after mounds of smelly socks to re- pair and a husband to an- swer to when I'm not home on time. On the other the op- position lists someone to put your cold feet a person there to talk to when you need him the fun of sharing the end of all thase nights when the other girls are out and you've got no date. Since the latest confronta- both sides have agreed to set aside their differences and wait for the moment of truth to arrive. these who are 'losing' ma are prepared to stand back idle and refuse to catch the bridal while those who feel they will 'gain' have vowed to fight to the finish for custody of the trea- sure.
