Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August LETHBRIDGE Nine hired as canalmen Girl lock hands welcome good pay ORILLIA, Ont. wolf whistles heard at Trent waterway locks this summer could be for the lock operators. Nine women are working on the northern divi- sion of the Trent canal system this year, some as canalmen. "Students are hired during the summer months to supple- ment the regular said Margaret Dearden, 21, of Orillia who is employed as a canalman at the Big Chute Marine Railway near Severn Falls for the second year in a row. "Women were hired for the first time in 1973." She helps load boats onto the marine railway for onward passage into the canal system and does maintenance work such as cutting grass and cleaning washrooms. Other students, all males, do similar duties, but "they do not receive as much help from tourists bringing their boats onto the railway." "Sometimes the men rush to help said Margaret, who gets some teasing about women's liberation. "It's mainly because they don't trust me with their boats." LIKES UNIQUE JOB Margaret was offered the job through Canada Man- power. She was happy to ob- tain a unique job involving outside work, good exercise and good pay She gets 50 an hour. She also enjoys her hours of work. Her 40-hour week begins at 2 p m. on Wednesday and concludes at p m. Saturday. During the winter, Margaret studies honors geography and her future may hold a teaching career Elaine Lillico, 19, of Cann- ington, a journalism student at Ryerson Polytechnical In- stitute in Toronto, spends 36 hours a week helping move boats through Lock 42 near Severn Bridge. Along with four male students, she helps move as many as 300 boats a day through the locks. Her duties include catching boats when they are coming into the locks, helping to tie them up, giving instructions on rules for passing through the locks, and opening and shutting the lock gates. She also admits that she re- ceives a lot of teasing, espe- cially because of the tag on her blouse which says "canalman." "Many people say something about women's lib but most of the women pass- ing by seem pleased that women are employed here Elaine said. Patricia White, also of Can- nington, is a canalman at Lock 38 for the second year. Marilyn Brentnell, who lives near Kirkfield, and Clare Jamieson of Coboconk, work out of the head office of the northern division at the Kirkfield lock. Marilyn was employed as a canalman last summer and fills in for any canalmen who are away, does office work, and general work around the locks. Clare drives a van to all the lock stations delivering corre- spondence and supplies She had the same duties last sum- mer. Clare's sister Teresa operates the hydraulic lift lock at Lock 36, where Louise Palmer of Fenelon Falls is a canalman. Ruthann Drury of Lindsay and Deborah Harmer of Cam- eron also work at this lock as tour guides. Their job is to meet the public, give out in- formation pamphlets and give talks on the operation of the hydraulic lift locks. Elaine Lillico, 19, of Cannington, Ont., ties up cruiser at canal.

For the last 5V2 years she has been senior solicitor with the city, leaving a law partnership to become a civil servant. Pragmatic, lucid and ener- getic, she earned a reputation that made her selection popu- lar at city hall. What was the reaction to her appointment9 "All very positive, perhaps surprisingly she said 'I think it would be quite diffi- cult in some ways for an out- sider to come in and suddenly gam an appreciation for and understanding of the city's problems Mrs Glube reciprocates the admiration of city hall "I think Halifax is served by an excellent group of people.

Art Conrad, head of the Halifax board of educa- tion, was acting city manager and considered the likely per- manent choice. But Mr. Conrad decided against it. After a search that engendered considerable pub- lic discussion, Mrs. Glube was chosen The new city manager, a native of Ottawa, graduated from Dalhousie Law School in 1955, and promptly took 10 years off to become a full-. time mother The Glubes have a 20-year-old son, an 18 year old daughter, both university students, and two other sons, 16 and 7. Does she think motherhood is a handicap in public life? "No Any woman can, with training and of course with the co-operation of her to have a good family relation- ship. Both husband and wife must give up some things, make some sacrifices, but for us it is working out very well." She has no full-time house- hold help. But her husband makes things easier "He also offers some very valuable advice in terms of my job In metropolitan Halifax de- velopment is a major issue and she said she feels closed meetings are often unneces- sary and even damaging. Excessive influence may be exerted by special-interest groups at private meetings and whenever possible people should know what can be developed and where. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: Millions of housewives in this country would be shocked if someone called them alcoholics. But they are. Members of the Kansas City area National Council On Alcoholism have prepared a questionnaire (with help from the Michigan chapter) and we want to give it as much exposure as possible. We hope you'll print it. Here are 20 questions. Any woman who answers "Yes" to more than half is probably alcoholic. 1 Do you try to get someone to buy liquor for you because you are ashamed to buy it yourself? 2 Do you buy liquor at different places so no one will know how much you purchase? 3 Do you hide the empties and dispose of them secretly? 4. Do you plan in advance to "reward" yourself with a little drinking bout after you've worked very hard in the house? 5. Are you often permissive with your children because you feel guilty about the way you behaved when you were drinking? 6. Do you have periods about which you remember nothing? 7. Do you ever phone the hostess of a party the next day and ask if you hurt anyone's feelings or made a fool of yourself? 8. Do you find cigarette holes in your clothes or the furniture and can't remember when it happened? 9.

Do you often wonder if anyone knows how much you drink? 11 Do you feel wittier or more charming when you are drinking? 12. Do you feel panicky when faced with non drinking days, such as a visit to out of town relatives9 13. Do you invent social occasions for drinking, such as inviting friends for lunch, cocktails or dinner9 14. When others are present, do you avoid reading articles or seeing movies or TV shows about women alcoholics but read and watch when no one is around9 15. Do you ever carry liquor in your purse9 16. Do you become defensive when someone mentions your drinking? 17 Do you become irritated when unexpected guests reduce your liquor supply? 18. Do you drink when under pressure or after an argument? 19. Do you try to cover up when you can't remember promises and feel ashamed when you misplace or lose things9 20. Do you drive even though you've been drinking but feel certain you are in complete control of yourself? Be honest, if your score says you're alcoholic, call the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission or Alcoholics Anonymous. They are listed in the phone book. Doris S.
