20 TKL fiCDGE HERALD Friday, December 30, 1974 shopping service back-fires REGINA (CP) A down- town department store that held a special Christmas shopping night for men is to receive a warning soon from the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission telling it not to do the same thing again. In newspaper adver- tisements dirscted at men, the Bay said: "This is your night to do your Christmas shopping at the Bay. From 6 to 10 p.m., look for our gift hostesses at our customer services, second floor. They'll '.ielp you do your Christmas shipping in getting yo- gifts gift wrapped free of charge." Men were also told free cigarettes and cigars would be provided whik, they waited to have parcels wrapped. A woman who ask- ed to have the free parcel wrapping service was told "it's for men only." Regular charges start at 50 cents, depending on parcel size. Carole Foge, director of the Human Rights Commission, said in an interview that the advertisement-! and services offered to men would appear to violate non Jiscrimination laws. Without a complaint, the commission would not formal- ly act, but '-certainly we would likely be writing a letter to the Bay and the new- spaper advising not to allow publication of a similar item."

Bible-quoter protests sex classes Dear Ann Landers: it possible to take a fatal over- dose of tranquilizers? I mean something mild, like Miltown? Yesterday I had a date to go shopping with a friend. When I went by to pick Margaret up she was sound asleep. Her sister let me in the house. It took me a good half hour to shake her awake. She couldn't remember how many Miltowns she had taken but she swore they were harmless. Although Margaret claims it's the only thing that relaxes her, she moves like a zombie most of the time and I'm worried sick about her. Please tel1 n? she is right that thtrsc pills ARE harmless. I'll sleep a lot better tonight. C Deemed In Raleigh Df9r Coacemed: No drug is "harmless" if taken in- discrininately. A person who remember" how many she took and has to be 'shaken awake" for half an is a candidate for a fatal overdose. Margaret see a doctor at once, lean; her limits, and stick to the i Lear Ann Landers: Usually your column is informative and often it is funny. Today it upset me. I rsfer to the woman who cormnajned about "the 200 pound nulk': who "plops down on a new sofa and flattens the pillows."

I'm living in the wrong country. Plac- ed Dear Miss: You are also liv- ing in the wrong century. Go through any art museum and look at the paintings by Rubens and the sculptures of the Greek goddesses. They are fleshy, hippy and plenty "zoftig." If you simply can't make a diet work you ought to get into therapy and find out why. You might also stop feeling sorry for yourself and blaming the world for your unhappiness. Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band is being transferred to Texas in a few months. We have two sons in their early teens. I am very concerned about something. I've heard that topless bathing is legal in Texas in all the public pools. If this is so it could have quite an impact on our young boys. I'm pretty square, Ann, I'm not ashamed to admit it. Is this the law down there not? If it is, should I go along with it? Old Fashioned Dear O. F.: So far as I know, topless bathing is not permitted in the public pools of Texas. If the law changes (and it might) we'll ALL have to go along with it. What's next? Your guess is as good as mine. There is a big Inference between cold and cool. Ann Landers shows you how to play it cool without freezing people out in her booklet, "Teen Age Sex Tea Ways to Cool It."

Mr. Cottinham had asked to speak to the board before it voted on another sex educa- tion issue a motion by Trustee Alex Proudfoot to allocate of the specifically for sex education seminars for junior high schools. That motion was defeated as most fellow trustees did not want to tie up hands and would prefer the general allocation of for family life and sex education. "I think Mr. Cottingham misses the point said Board Chairman John Curran. "We have received a peti- tion containing names asking us to set a policy on sex education. We have held public meetings and received representations before the board. And we now have a policy, a mandate from the public." NO WOMEN APPOINTED JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) Bunty Mann, president of the National Council of Women, says it's "shocking and ridiculous" that there are no women on the South African government's commission of enquiry into abortion.
