Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Shakedown cruise for mixed crew M0nd0y, December M, 1972 THI UTHItlDOf HBtAlD ft SAN FRANCISCO The one-dav shakedown cruise of the first U.S. Navy ship with female crew members has that women can do the romance is harder to suppress than salty language and seasickness knows no sex Hue. When the hospital ship Sanc- tuary poUed iaio port here, there was the usual scramble down the gaogplack by feave- sailors. But beneath some of the foal-weatber gear and <3uagarees were 400 women who Kade history by assum- ing posts alongside the vessel's 43D male crew members.

'Toe women do their said Walter llarkwordt, who works with four women in the gaTJer, "They want equality, so we give it to 'era. We've got ocs girl thai can Eft 50-pound potato sacks no sweat." Even on the deck, where the routine includes swabbing decks, haulisg Hses and remov- ing cargo, eight women have bv choice taken their place among the so called "deck apes." However, most women found their way to indoor desk jobs or hospital corps posts. "It's not really said Marilyn Tanney, who did deck work before working in the ship's laundry. "The men try to see how much you can take when you're lifting heavy things. There's no the women can lift as much."

A short fur jacket just didn't make fashion sense over a minimal skirt. Then the skirts dropped and the jacket looked right again, especially with floor-length dresses. TMs winter there's even more .emphasis OB fur jackets and the beginning of what might be a return trend for the stole. But the regulation fur coat still is the backbone of the Canadian wardrobe in the winter climate. In the last few years a new note has emerged. Women are concerned about those ani- mals facing extinction, Not many women could afford a leopard coat, of course, but they want to be sure the furs they choose are not on any such list. Mink and some other ani- mals are bred for the fur market. So they are always right. And the wild animals that furriers now use are not facing extinction. Often they are pests and their numbers must be kept down. If you are thinking of a fur coat youTl v.-ant to know the latest styling, first, however, decide on the type of fur. That often decides the styling. There are three categories: long "hair as foz, raccoon, lynx, wo-if: short hair to in- clude rnfrifrj muskrat, beaver, otter, and lastly, such flat furs as the lamb family- This season srany coats use two furs, as a flat lamb trimmed with a long-hair fur. This is especially effective in the fitted style, actually the latest trend, away from last year's more voluminous coat. In Copenhagen, there was capsule showing by the fa- mous firm of Birger ChrKten- sen whose clients include the royal families of Denmark, Norway and Greece, This faB the firm sent out a 504tezn collection to be shown at Win- nipeg, Calgary and Vancou- ver. SHOW WRAPPED STYLE For 1972-73, Birger Christes- sea likes finger-tip or stroller lengths, as well as a short double-breasted pea-jacket. Also shown -were several wrapped styles, as a raccoon with leather edging and a nu- tria with a matching foz col- lar and suede tie-belt. Natu- rally, foz is popular. One Nor- wegian blue foz had brona suede sides. A gray foz wafl trimmed with red fox. For casual two ver- sions in red knee and leather snap-front-band aad leather patch pockets.

I DEAR A5N LANDERS: I just read the letter from fee 16-year-old girl whose mother was driv- ing her crazy. Fin. 26 now. married and a mother myself. I remember when I was 15 and my mother was driving me crazy. I was convinced that she wanted to rum my life. She hated my friends, mv clothes, my hair everything about me. Or, so I thought "NOT I realize she was going through the meno- pause and I was driving her crazy, too. When I vest to college, I was able to tolerate Mom much better. Four years ago I married and moved to a nearby state. By that time I was actually fond of her and looked forvrard to the occasional weekend when we could get together. Last Slay my parents moved 1300 miles away. Nosr I miss Mom terribly and ftjink how wonderful it would be if I oxud see her every few days. I grieve over the years we wasted arguing and fighting. I hope" all the other girls who are "Sinking Fast" w31 realize what a good friend a mother can he. Fm thankful I woke up before my Mom was gone forever. Louie Woman DEAR WOMAN: You are not the same person you were 10 years ago and neither is your mother. Tm sure you've learned a lot Don't spend any more time grieving over the "wasted" years. You bad to live through those years in order to be what you are DOW. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Nine years ago I married a GJ. -K-3S stationed at a nearby base. It was a terrible mistake. I was too young. We were divorced two years later when our baby was only five weeks old. Six years have passed and I am now married to a wonderful man. He is the only father Lisa has ever known, 'Following the advice in your column, we told Lisa that this daddy adopted her. She keeps asking if she can see her real daddy one day. We don't know what to tell her. He has never sent the child so much as a greeting card since he left We will be within 30 of his home this summer when we take a camping trip. Shall we contact him aod ar- range for Lisa to see her real daddy? Mother DEAR WACO: The Jess said about him the better. His lack of interest speaks volumes. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My heart aches for that woman who dreads moving back to Benton Harbor because she doesn't want to have her father "hanging around for lunch every day." My father died three years ago and I till think about him every day of my life. I thank God for the years I had my dad around to give my own children bits and pieces of his philosophy. They will be the richer for having known him. One of these days that selfish little lady will sit alone and wonder why her own children want to be bothered with her. Kids who see their parents ignore Grandma and Grandpa set an example. Our children have a strange way of not doing as we say but doing as we do. Tell faerf please, Father's Daughter, Orlando DEAR DAUGHTER: She's been told-and I want to thank you for adding a dimension to this column that could only from a reader such as you.
