Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 24, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 21 Beryl Plumptre runs a close second Margaret Trudeau newsiest woman of '74 By JOHN LeBLANC The Canadian Press Margaret Trudeau was the newsiest Canadian woman of 1974. The prime minister's wife, whose activities as an election campaigner, psychiatric patient, photographer and on again-off again magazine writer provided miles of copy for reporters, displaced Beryl Plumptre in the annual poll of editors who handle women's news for daily papers and broadcasting stations. Mrs. Plumptre, the em- battled chairman of the food prices review board and last year's No. 1 choice, ran sec- ond 10 Mrs. Trudeau this year as the over-all news person- ality but was an easy winner over Mrs. Trudeau in the field of public affairs. Rising prices were the near- unanimous choice of editors as the women's-interest story, of the year, with women's rights trailing far behind. Margaret Trudeau's much- publicized breakdown got a couple of votes for third place. In other areas, Pauline Jewett was the runaway win- ner in literature, art and edu- cation The former Liberal MP for Northumberland be- came president of Simon Fra- ser University at Vancouver Sept. 1. Two CBC broadcasters fin- ished in a dead heat for the top spot in entertainment Barbara Frum, host of the inquiring radio program As It Happens, was tied with Adr- ienne Clarkson, the star of Adrienne at Large, and also picked up three votes as woman of the year. The women's editors dis- agreed with sports writers on the woman athlete of the year, selecting diver Beverley Boys of Pickering, Ont., and ignor- ing swimmer Wendy Cook of Vancouver, who was the choice of the sports spe- cialists. In the over-all balloting, Pauline McGibbon, appointed Ontario lieutenant-governor during the year, ran third and also was given the same spot Ann Landers STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd St. S. Phone 327-3024 We hope you enjoy everything this wonderful season has to offer. Thank you, friends. SILK-0-LINA (Leth.) LTD. 320 7th St. S. Phone 327-4400 Dear Ann Landers: I was furious when you sided with the husband who resented the fact that his wife was receiv- ing mail addressed to Mrs. Mary Smith. He said her name was "Mrs. John Smith" that he wasn't dead yet. When people try to force my husband's name on me "Mrs. Warren Smith" I tell them that my name is NOT Warren. My mother named me Ruth. As a woman who refuses to stand behind my husband's image, but rather BESIDE .him, on equal footing, I have also dropped my given middle name and replaced it with my maiden name. I'm glad I married a mature man who doesn't insist that I wear his name like a piece of branded beef. He respects me as a person with my own iden- tity, personality, thoughts and opinions. I Am Truly Liberated Dear Lib: You and at least other irate females wrote to blast me for my answer. I'd like to set the record straight The woman who wrote said her husband questioned the correctness of the procedure and my response was based on the etiquette books which clearly state that mail sent to a married woman should be addressed to Mrs. John Smith, even if her husband is no longer living. It is Mrs. MARY Smith if she is a divorcee. Some divorced women use Mrs. Maiden Name Smith or they revert to their maiden name and drop the Smith altogether, provided, of course, they have no children. People are paying less attention to etiquette books and doing their own thing. If you women out there feel your identity is being threatened and you prefer to be address- It's the Holy Season, time when hearts are filled with gratitude, love and good will. In this spirit we extend our warmest wishes and thanks. OPPOSITE THE CPR STATION Phone ed as Mrs. Mary Smith, it's O.K. with me, BUT if your husband hassles you about it, be smart enough to recognize it as a symptom of a deeper problem which needs to be resolved Dear Ann Landers: This letter could have come from one of thousands, so I'm not afraid of being recognized, and I'm asking you to please print it. My husband is a great guy a wonderful father and terrific grandfather. But whenever we are out, Harry turns the conversation to "When I was in the service." He's talking about the Second World War, dearie, and it doesn't take a computer genius to figure out that was over 29 years ago. I know all Harry's war stones by heart, and so do all our friends and relations. Of course, I keep my mouth shut and let him go on and talk his fool head off, but he's a terri- ble bore. Any cure? Wed To A Broken Record Dear Wed: Probably not. Those days were the most ex- citing in his life and nothing has happened since to equal them. But here's an idea, and it just might work. Buy Harry a camera and encourage him to take pictures of the grandkids. He can then at least bore people with the snapshots and a new subject. A no nonsense approach to how to deal with life's most difficult and most rewarding arrangement. Ann Landers's booklet, "Marriage What to will prepare you for better or for worse.

Laura Sabia of St. Cath- arines, Ont., chairman of the Ontario Status of Women Council and an articulate voice on behalf of women's rights, followed Mrs. McGibbon and was just ahead of Barbara Frum. Miss Jewett and Carol Tay- lor, a CTV-TV personality, were the only others to get more than a single vote, one nominator mentioning that Miss Taylor rated because of a much-quoted interview with Margaret Trudeau. A surprise nominee was Irene Murdoch, the Alberta woman whose suit to get half her husband's farm in a sepa- ration was thrown out by the Supreme Court of Canada in 1973. The case's publicity has been cited as a turning point leading to later judgments more favorable to wives. "She seems to be one of the people who suffer but causes others to have it wrote one editor. "Many changes have been made in property settlement." Another housewife who sprang into the national spotlight overnight, Ursula Appolloni of Toronto, got a vote for accomplishing the de- feat of David Lewis, national leader of the New Democratic Party, in York South in the July 8 federal general elec- tion. Single votes also went to Dr. Bette Stephenson of Toronto, who became the first woman president of the Canadian Medical Association during the year; Solange Chaput- Rolland, Montreal writer, and Beverley Boys. The public affairs field was dominated by Mrs. Plumptre, Mrs. Trudeau and Mrs. McGibbon, with only single votes going to Renaude Lap- ointe, speaker of the Senate; Lise Bacon, Quebec minister of social affairs, and Mrs. Sabia. In literature, art and educa- tion, the only woman to come up with more than a couple of votes after Miss Jewett was Heather Robertson, Toronto author. No one came close to Bar- bara Frum and Adrienne Clarkson in entertainment. Dancer Veronica Tennant headed the rest of the field. One vote in this category went to Xaviera Hollander, the literary Happy Hooker, who is not a Canadian and in fact is under official pressure to become a former resident. The best-selling writer of raf- fish memoirs, now living in Toronto, is appealing in the courts against a deportation order. She is a native of the Netherlands. While prices and women's rights dominated the story-of- the-year group, one vote apiece went to stories about housing shortages and the con- tinuing case of Dr. Henry Morgentaler, the Montreal surgeon sentenced to 18 months in jail for an illegal abortion by the Quebec Court of Appeal. The Morgentaler case was seen as focusing at- tention on the abortion issue.
