Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, December 9, 1970 2f win Says Rev. Doyle to CNIB Blind can see WeoX world The blind have a better opportunity to see the real world which is hidden under glittering tinsel for many others, said Rev. E. R. Doyle, associate priest for St. Augustine's Anglican Church. He was addressing members of the Lethbridge branch of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and their guests attending, the annual Christmas banquet on Tuesday. Neil R. Hamilton, executive officer of the southern district of southern Alberta said the attendance at the occasion is growing so rapidly that he challenged Rev. Doyle to have a bigger hall built for them next, year. He reminded all seasonal merry - makers present that Christmas should be held sacred for what it means and despite all the doubts and fears which arise during each year, all friends should be remembered. A special note of thanks was given by Donald Jones, field secretary for CNIB, to all those who have helped the association during the year and especially to the many blind for whom "the CNIB actually exists. Rex Little on behalf of Mayor Andy Anderson expressed re- grets that more of the community fellowship enjoyed during the Christmas season could not be carried throughout the entire year. He also added to the merry-making by defending the mayor from the joking comments of Bill Kergan, master of ceremonies for the occasion. Special guests from the Lions Club were present to greet members of the CNIB wirh whom Lions have been associated for many years. The evening was topped with entertainment by the well known Potts Family and a special trio with Rev. Doyle, presenting the eld Irish tunes. Are women too apathetic to care?

Mr. Hyde says he explains that Lethbridge Is growing and Santa needs helpers in order to see all the children in the city. "But, he adds "it seems like we're taking something away from them by having so many in one day." There have been as many as seven Santas which young tots can visit one after the other. Mr. Hyde visits many stores and homes each Christmas season donating his time, at one store in return for toys for St. Michael's Hospital. His blue eyes really d o seem to twinkle when he talks about his young friends. He said they still ask where he keeps his reindeer and no one seems to expect him to have updated his style of travel.

By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor TF THE lf>7 recommendations of the 16,000-word report of the royal commission on the status of women released this week in Ottawa are causing any Furore, it doesn't seem to be felt in Lethbridge. Day care, abortion and sterilization are expected to be the crosses which commission members will have to bear from church factions and those who don't believe in subsidized day care. The report says day care should be a v a i 1 a b 1 e to any woman who needs it, whether working or not, and fees should be on a sliding scale related to family needs. It. recommends provincial, and federal assistance in contribution to costs and the setting up of a day care act. While day care and sex education in the schools has the support of Catholic Women's League rational president, Iphi-genie Arsenault, divorce, abor tion and birth control information recommendations do not. Mrs. R. E. Kaupp, president of a local CWL group said she would agree with Mrs. Arse-nault's statement on abortion. "I can't really see the need for abortion when the information on birth control already is available." Two favored recommendations locally seem to be the guaranteed annual income for one-parent families and family life education programs. This latter point has been lauded by younger women as the means of re-educationg society about male-female roles. The commission has suggested that family life education be discussed at the kindergarten stage and be co-educational. Representatives of a number of Lethbridge organizations in telephone interviews Tuesday were in general agreement over both the necessity of such recommendations and their prac ticability. Women's groups are now being urged to study the report and see that the proposals are implemented and not shelved. Helen Hnatyshyn, national president of the Council of Women said in Saskatoon Tuesday that women must take steps before the proposals become outdated. Mrs. L. G. Uoye, president of the local branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women said that she generally favored the commission's report.

"I don't see how anyone could object to the recommendations. Our members, as are other groups, are being urged to write to their members of parliament. "But," she added, "perhaps women are too apathetic to even write.'' Enthusiastic support for equal rights of women came from Roy Uerlaiirto, business agent for the United Brotherhood 01 Carpenters and Joiners Local 84fi. Mr. Berlando said the report was "long overdue". "We've talked about equality here but we know that women are discriminated against, "I believe there should bp equality in every way, shape and form, and especially compensations for women raising a family. "The demands are not outrageously high as some people seem to think." "A lot of common sense in it" was the way Terry Bland, first vice-president of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce described the report. "I think the average woman however, is happy with her lot. There may be some tendency for people to want equality but not the responsibility that goes with it." Asked if the report went "too far" as has been claimed, Mr. Bland said you often have to go too far to get what you want. "I think I'd be the same in the same position. Can the report be implemented? Mr. Bland says that with a firm belief in one's righteousness, and sufficient organization, governments can be overcome. Concerning the recommendation calling for management training programs. Rose Yellowfeet of the Lethbridge j Friendship Centre said this was I one area in which "we're way behind." "We are also thinking about, setting up kindergartens in the schools and having counsellor in the schools. Pernaps if we had native counsellors in the school, it would cut down on some of the problems." Stan Daniels, president of the Metis Association of Alberta has also supported the commission's suggestion. He said Metis and other native people need more education in co-operatives. He also supported the report's call for greater opportunities in the ; teaching profession for native women. Neither Mr. Daniels nor Mrs. Yellowfeet were too concerned about abortion. Mrs. Yellowfeet said that native women think of themselves as women and if they are pregnant, they expect to bear the child. Mr. Daniels said his association is more concerned with people alter birth than before. Present needs are to be dealt with first. Frank Besplug, manager of Canada Manpower said that women in federal service are treated equally. "Our counsellors have the same rate of salary, and duties. Women are expected to go to construction sites and men will visit a beauty school in the course of counselling duties. "There are possibly certain jobs which because of physical demands, women may not be able to perform" but he agreed that the same would apply to men not physically capable. Rev. R. W. K. Elliott said that a consideration of women's plac� in society was long overdue. He felt that the recommendations were reasonable that abortion should be "the right of any woman, under advisement" that a woman has the right to say whether or not she wants a child. The family life education recommendation was heralded by Rev. Elliott has sorely needed as a study between all people, not just within the marriage structure. For many Canadian women the recommendations have come too slowly. Since the commission got under way in 1966 there has, for instance, been an easing of both abortion and sterilization legislation. Working women have become a more accepted part of the labor force, and working mothers are not considered to have deserted their children, in favor of a career. Across the country Laura Sabia, who called for the commission in 1966 said the report is outdated already. . June Callwood, Toronto writer and journalist who visited in Lethbridge in November expressed disappointment that the Marriage Act was not studied. Dr. Lita - Rose Betchman, director of the Ontario Labor Department's Women's Bureau approved of the report but was critical of preferential treatment for 'vomen. "Women have what it takes to make it on their own." And out in Blairmore is a man who says "I don't know what women are making all the fuss about. I thought they'd been running things for the last 2,000 years."
