Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Male-dominated history examined OTTAWA (CPI Feminists have always seen conven- tional history as a male-domi- nated version of the past and Deborah Keith, SI. Patrick's College associate professor, is no exception. This year she launched a special history course called Women and Society. She got the idea after hear- ing about women's courses in other universities. One of these, Barnard Col- lege in the United States, has set up a women's centre offer- ing n courses with its own special library. Prof. Keith had no difficulty getting administration support for her proposed three-hour- a-weck seminar. She said she feels the college, affiliated wilh Carlelon University, is taking it seriously. McGill University offered such a course under its exten- sion program two years ago, although it was not toward any degree. Loyola College of Montreal has offered a women's history course for credit since 1970. The 35 students, mostly women, attend Prof. Keith's course for two reasons, she said. Either they're confused "they're interested in examin- ing their own feelings about they're confi- dent and want to learn more about women's Prof. Keith came honestly by her feminist sympathies. "f was raised as a feminist. I had a mother who never succumbed to the counter-cul- always worked. She headed her own advertising agency." Both parents were members of the radical left in their youth. The New York-torn professor feels this movement spurred today's agitation over women's rights. Her course seeks to relate the past to the present. Stu- dents like to discuss 1971 con- ditions but she said she is careful to point out that it is the male-dominated past that crejted today's society. Course books reflect Prof. Keith's concern with the total picture as far as women's rights are concerned. They range from studies of family planning in the Vic- torian era to the status of women report; from Emilv Pankhurst's autobiography to Kate Millet, Germaine Greer, Simone de Besuvoir, Betty Friedan and other modern chroniclers of women's posi- tion. The professor says the tra- ditional historical treatment of women is inadequate be- cause Western European soci- eties, including their North American offshoots, Canada and the U.S., have always been male-dominated. "Individual women who have been major historical figures were hi most cases standing in for men or func- tioning as men in society'. The first Queen Elizabeth is a good example."

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes Monday, Dumber 27, 1971 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Ann Landers "I had rhe craziest dream last night.. .You come down to breakfast, smiled and said, 'Good morning'." QUICK........ THRIFT BULK.......... COIN-OPERATED BY THE POUND DRY CLEANING PER LB. Minimum per order LEE DUCK DRY CLEANERS 330 13th ST. N. PHONE 328-5333 DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I was 20, my mother took seriously ill and since 1 was the youngest of seven children, and the only one wasn't married, it [ell to me to take care of ray mother. I had to quit my job, give up my social life and be a nurse around Die clock. My brothers and sisters all said I was a good daughter to make such sacrifices for Mom, but not one of them offered to give me a hand. While I would have given anything for a night's sleep, they were taking two-week vacations. After Mom died Dad got sick. It was just assumed that I would take care of him as 1 did Mom. Well, I did, for eight years. Now I am in my middle 30's, looks gome, health shot, and finding it very hard to told a job. My brothers and sisters have no time for me. They are busy with their families and can't be bothered. I don't expect anyone to give me a medal, but I do think they owe me something for taking care of Mom and Dad all those years and relieving them of the responsibility. What do you say? H. A. DEAR R. A.: 1 say you should have written to me before you cpiit your job and signed up as a free nurse around the clock for umpteen years. 1 would have told you to hold a tribal meeting and announce to one and all that the responsi- bility for Matter must be split eight ways. You can do very little now about the lost years and the absence of appreciation. I hope your letter will benefit others for whom it might not he loo late. The responsibility for sick and aging parents should be borne by all the children. When one child accepts it, and expects to be cannonized he invariably ends up sad and sorry. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I need to know if I am the one who is nuts for attaching so much importance to or is it my future mother-in-law? Dad died when I was six. Mom has been in and out of icy life for the past ten years. Grandma raised me. She's a fine person, but getting senile. I am 22 and have worked since I was 17. I'm going to be married to a great guy in November. Since my family can't afford any- Uiing, my husband's motto- wants to do the wedding "her way.'' 1 knew she was eccentric but until now I didn't think she was cracked. Listen to this: The woman is training her Scottie dog to carry a ring in his mouth and put it on a pillow. You guessed it. She wants the dog to be the ring-bearer. I told her the minister would not stand for having a dog in the church. She said, "If he doesn't like it, we'll have the wedding in the Moose Hall and hire a J.P." Ann, I don't want a J.P. I want a minister. Also. I don't want the dog. Please give me some mature guidance. DEAR H.: Tell your future mother-in-law that she is invited to attend a simple ceremony in the minister's study and to please leave the dog at home. DEAR A-NN LANDERS: With the holiday season upon us, it is inevitable that thousands of people who read this will re- ceive a telephone call with tire news that some good friend or relative was seriously in a car accident. They will mourn the loss of innocent people who died in a crash because some drunk was driving. Please, Ann, put something in your column about drunk driving. Point out that many people think they can handle a car completely after two or three even four or because they can stand up, talk sense (THEY think it's sense) and see well enough to get the key in the ignition. What an intoxicated person does not realize is that he is no judge of his competence, brilliance or anything else. Thank Reader DEAR HIM: I'll do more than remind them. I'll tell them where to write for a free Drink-Drive Calculator. It is a cardboard meter which tells how much a person can safely drink, according to his weight, and how much alcohol he can take within X number of hours before it will affect his ability to drive safely. Governor Richard B. Ogilvie's Traffic Safety Co-ordinating Committee has made this Cal- culator available, without charge, to anyone who writes to: Drunk Driving, P.O.
