Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Pridoy, 28, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAtD 15 THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "I want a device to amuse me during the spare time I've gained by using timesaving devices." Stewardesses Fear Weight Gain BOSTON (AP) A steward- ess has charged Eastern Air- lines with discrimination against women, asserting East- ern stewardesses are afraid to gain as little as one pound above their hiring weight lest they be taken off the payroll. Beraice Dolan, 37, of Halifax, Mass., an Eastern stewardess for 15 years, was one of a num- her of women who testified Monday before the Massachu- setts commission against dis- crimination. She said stewardesses who tend to gain weight are weighed every two weeks by the airline and all are weighed every three months. She contended this was discriminatory because stew- ardesses are the only Eastern personnel subject to weight reg- ulation. MRS. VERA SINCLAIR I.R.S.M. PIANO ORGAN THEORY POPULAR CLASSICAL ADULTS CHILDREN BEGINNERS OR ADVANCED Lessons Start Tuesday, Sept. 1st 620 9th St. S. Ann Land ers DKAR ANN LANDERS: Since you favor sharp amendment of all abortion laws which are "archaic, inhuman and discrim- inatory against the I'd like to offer a brief rebuttal, based on testimony heard in Middlesex Superior Court in Cam- bridge, Mass. Dr. Willaim A. Lynch of Boston had this to say, "Legal abortions would be no safer than illegal abortions. Back-street abortionists who work in the shadows use the same antisep- tics available to physicians." He also contended that "human life begins, at the moment of conception." Since you claim to be fair I trust you will publish this. Side DEAR SIDE: If you will forgive me, Til take the long way 'round the bam to reply. When Abraham Lincoln was asked by a prosecuting attorney, "How many legs does a sheep He replied, "Four." The attorney then asked, "If you called a sheep's tail a leg, how many legs would he Lincoln replied, "Four. Merely because you call a sheep's tail a leg does not make it one." And this is my reply to Dr. WJllaim Lynch's statement. Statements are made all day long, but this does not mean they are valid or correct. Generations of theologians will be thrilled to know that at last the question, "When does life has been settled by Dr. Lynch. They have been searching for an answer to this question for centuries. As for' his statement that back-street abortionists use the same antiseptics available to physicians, Dr. Lynch should be informed that for the past 75 years asepsis and not antisep- tics has been the method of sterile technique. Moreover, every surgeon with whom I checked said it is impossible to main- tain a completely safe asepsis outside an operating room. In fact, patients have been known to pick up infections in the operating rooms of some highly respected hospitals. Face Pollution, See Future Speaker Tells WI Delegates WINNIPEG (CP) Dele gates to the Federated Worn en's Institutes of Canada con vention here were urged "U take .off the blinkers" and con sider the dangers pollution pre seuts to the environment.

Calling on all citizens "fight against the pioneer beli. that the sky, soil and water have infinite capacity to ab- sorb Mrs. Marchbank urged members to "take off the blinkers and look to the tare." She asked the FWIC to con- tinue its studies on conserva- tion and natural resources, its buautification of Canada pro grams and to apply presure or governments to deal with pol lution. Mrs. Stanley Bride of Ford wich, Ont., convener of the Uni ted Nations and International Exchange Committee, said pol- lutants "are a result of the good life" that won't be worth ha ing if it means destruction the environment. She added there were many aspects of the problem to con- sider including "moral pollu- tion of human rights and dig- nity" which "wQl undermine our country eventually."

Berman Booed For Making Sexist Stand WASHINGTON (AP) "The pioneer women, making tiieir way across the prairie, didm'l take time out for the said Dr. Bstelle R. Barney as 200 women of the Women's Na- tional Press dub cheered. When Dr. Edgar F. Herman, wtoo has been portrayed as the nemisis of women's liberation, tried to dispute (he argument, his words were drowned in a ca- cophony of throat clearing. "One lady Berman began, "that when she read about my remarks in her news- paper, 'I was so- angry I sat right diswn to write you a letter, but my cramps were so bad____'" But he never finished. His statement trailed off as the noise from the audience grew in volume. It was Dr. Berman who sug. gested at a Democratic Party meeting that women might not be physiologically fit for some high-level leadership positions because pre-menstrual tension or menopause might render them less than rational under great pressure. PERFORM WELL Actuary retorted Dr. Ramey, holding up the distaff side of the debate, "The vast majority of women perform extremely well even at the height of pre-nfen- strual or menopause tension." Representative Patsy Mink (Dem. Hawaii) has called Ber- man a sexist with the "basest sort of prejudice against women" and obtained his resig- nation from the party's policy- making group. "I didn't say women are hrfe- ior, or men are Dr. Berman tried to explain. "But I nsist on the differences." This is merely taking the my- ;hology about women, Dr. Ramey answered, and "cloak- ing it with the guise of science." I maintain that women can and should Dr. Ber- man said, "but as as a man." And he almost scored as a woman on the third row began to. applaud until the silence of her neighbors chilled her into submission.
