Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 UTHBRIDOE HERAtD Tucjday, Deeembor 59, An no Francis heads public affairs No top ivoman newsmaker for second year in women's editors poll lly .IEAN SHAHP 01' Women's Eilitur Though w omen en masse were big news in 1870, for the second consecutive year Cana- dian women's editors have been unable to name an individual as the top feminine news maker for 1970. In the annual poll conducted by The Canadian Press since 1951, women's and family edi- tors of newspapers and radio and television stations are ask- ed to vote for women who have made !he most news in their fiends, and for a woman who has been most newsworthy wo- man of the year. This year 34 of them named no most newsworthy woman and 41 others scattered votes among nine women. There were several votes for Mrs. Pierre Laporte, widow of Quebec's murdered labor min- ister, and Mrs. James Cross, wife of the former British trade commissioner in Montreal. The votes were tributes to the wo- men for the courage they dis- played when their husbands j were kidnapped by the FLQ. The winners in the various categories are: public affairs, Anne Francis Bird: sports, ski- er Betsy Clifford; entertain- ment, singer Anne Murray, lit- erature, Anne Hebert; news story of the year most affect- ing women, the report of the royal commission on the status of women. Mrs. Bird was chairman of the royal commission on the status of women. She was ap- pointed in J967 by then prime minister Lester Pearson. The re port was tabled in the House of Commons Dec. 7. Mrs. Bird works as a free- lance writer and broadcaster under the name Anne Francis. She was born Florence Bayard Rhein in Philadelphia, and has lived in Canada since 1931. Her husband is pariiameniaiy cm- respondent for The Financ i a 1 Post. Before her commission ap- pointment, Mrs. Bird did over- seas assignments for the CBC. During the Second World War she wrote a column about wo- men's war work in Winnipeg and later wrofe another for an Ottawa newspaper on debates in Parlia m e n t concerning the rights of women. Miss Clifford, of Ottawa, re- j cently won her first World Cup ski event at the Criterium de la Premiere Neige competition. Earlier in the year she was named to the Sports Hal] of Fame for her achievement in becoming the youngest compet- itor to win a gold medal in a world skims championship. Last January, when she was still 16, she won a giant slalom in the world alpine skiing champion- ship in Val Gardena. Italy.' Miss Hubert, of Montreal, is a novelist and poet who has been living in Paris for several years. Her most recent book, Ka- mouraska, is set in 19th cen- tury Quebec. It has sold copies in France, where it was published, and more in Quebec. Miss Murray was voted most newsworthy w o m a n in enter- tainment in 1970 by a large margin. In a relatively short time Ihe 24-year-old singer from Spring- hill, N.S., lias come out of re- gional television to the big time. Her recording of Snowbird has sold a million copies. She has a CBC contract, contracts for U.S. network television ap- pearances and dates with a U.S1. record firm. The report of the royal com- mission on the status of women in Canada was voted top 1970 news story most affecting wo- men. Us highlights include recom- for a network of day care centres, abortion on demand, raising minimum mar- riage age to 18, liberalizing di- vorce legislation, a guaranteed annual income to heads of one- parent families with dependent children. The report also urged equal education, pay and opportunity for women and the establish- ment of human rights commis- sions with special sections to oversee women's rights. ers ANN LANDERS: I am a married woman fin the early who is puzzled, and searching for answers that might not exist. Every now and then (more often, late- ly) I get word that friends of who have been married for 25 years and getting a divorce. I harbor a secret" fear in the corner of my heart tlfat one day that "older couple" might be us. Timmy and I have always gotten along well. We have four lovely kids. I made it a point to teach our children that Daddy comes first. He is King in our hourse. They love him and respect him. He is a wonderful father. But there must be more to life than PTA, housework, marketing, cooking, cleaning, laundry and sex with your husband. I ache to feel that special electricity when my eyes meet his across a crowded room. It never happens. I yearn for a man who will make my heart pound a mile a minute. Timmy used the thrill is gone. Things are quiet and calm might as well say it- dull as dishwater. We have a lot to be thankful health, attrac- tive, well-behaved kids, and a promising financial future. Why isn't this enough? Is something wrong with me? Am 1 chasing the impossible dream? I will be watching and waiting for your answer. Please don't fail DEAR MOON: Put away your story books, little girl. You've got some growing up to do. Yes, there is more to life than PTA, housework, cooking, cleaning, sex with your husband. There's illness and emotional break- downs that make it impossible for some women to do the housework, cooking, cleaning and laundry. As for sex with your husband, don't knock it, honey. There are plenty of husbands who aren't interested. There is also alcoholism, in- law trouble, problems with out-of-control children and money worries. Read the papers. Look around you. Case your friends. No marriage can maintain the honeymoon level of excite- "ment forever. And it's a good thing. We'd all die of exhaus- tion. Time diminishes the raging fires to a soft but no longer ferocious and demanding. Count your bless- ings. Too many people fail to appreciate what they have until they have lost it. Don't let it happen to you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You have repeatedly displayed your ignorance en animal behavior. I would like to set you straight in regard to that basset hound that barked all night. The beast is signalling his desperate loneliness. He needs some sort of human. To be tied up day after day, night after night, is solitary confinement. An animal can suffer a nervous breakdown under these conditions, just as some humans do. An animal is not a machine. He is a living, breathing, gregarious creature with 3 capacity for pain, fear, grief, joy, loneliness, and love- just as you and I. Reporting a dog who barks all night to the animal welfare organization will produce more satisfactory results than reporting it to the Shore Drive, Chicago DEAR L. S. D.: Thank you for a better answer. Hear ye all readers who are kept up nights by the neighbor's barking dog: Don't call the cops, call the animal welfare organization. (P.S. My Lake Shore Drive reader didn't sug- gest an alternative if no one at the animal welfare place answers the phone between 2 and 5 a.m.) What is French kissing? Is it wrong? Who should set the necking boy or the girl? Can a shotgun wedding succeed? Read Ann Landers' booklet. "Teen-Age Ways To Cool It." Send 50 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Paul'i Churc Canadian in determ HALIFAX (CP) The effect of atomic fallout on uifants may not be as deadly as a recent United States study indicated. A study by members of Dal-housie University's preventive medicine and pediatrics department differs sharply with the findings of health physicist Ernest J. Sternglass of the University of Pittsburgh. The Sternglass study indicated that low doses of stron-tium-90 from nuclear weapons tests may have caused more than infant deaths and more than two million fetal deaths in the U.S. since the early 1950s. The Dalhousie study found no correlation between the stron-tium-90 level and the infant mortality rate. Dalhousie scientists say there are indications the Canadian study may be the conclusive one. Duplicating the fallout s ining infc used by Dr. Stemglass hi a computer program, human geneticist Richard F. Shaw, a Dalhousie professor, and Allen favo int morta Smith, a computer analyst with the university's preventive medicine department, calculated the trend in infant mortality as well as the four-year moving average of strontlum-90 in Canada. FACTS CONTRADICT Data obtained from nine inces showed strontium-90 levels in Canada as higher than those in the U.S., but the infant mortality rate was lower. One fact stands out in this conflicting picture. The Dalhousie team plotted evidence for nine provinces while the plots shown by Dr. Sternglass were possibly selected: He used as evidence the plots of Georgia, Missouri, Utah, Texas, Sew York and Illinois. "I thought Sternglass was probably right in hfs said Dr. Shaw. "I continued to think so right up until the time that Mr. Smith brought out the results from our computer program. "I think the question should be reopened whenever reason for doubt arises. Editors of scientific journals have been hesitant to publish either papers by Slernglass or rebuttals. They know Sternglass is regarded by some researchers as unscientific. "They saw themselves as open to ridicule if they gave him a full hearing. Science, the main U.S. scientific journal, prefers to publish articles like 'How fast is the ocean floor Infant mortality, however, is a more urgent matter than this. On such a subject, scientific editors need to be braver." FINDINGS PUBLISHED The findings of the Dalhousie team were published in a recent issue of Nature magazine. Despite communication between the Halifax and Pittsburgh scientists, there has been no change in their lespective lily "My conclusion now is that stronthim-90 is not doing mea-sureable harm to saic Dr. Shaw. "Sternglass, although wrong, has at least directed our attention to an important question.

(AP) -Gladys Clifton just can't stop talking and her farmer husband Ian doesn't mind a bit. S'he only started Sunday. In eight months of marriage; she had never uttered a word before. Mrs. Clifton lost her voice and in 1964 when she was a nurse. On Sunday, while she was cutting a hedge at home, she breathed in deeply and "somehow squeezed out a noise just a mutter." It was "the end of a Mrs. Clifton says. "I was so thrilled, I just wandered around the garden for a while. Then I went in to see Ian and said 'hello." He looked astounded, then a big grin shot across his face. I just cried for joy."

The lone male on the pane agreed. Among the panelists was Dr. Jeanetle R. Piccard of Minneapolis, who has gone higher in space than any other American woman. Dr. Piccard, a former adviser to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, now is seeking ordination as an Episcopal (Anglican) clergyman. Dr. Piccard, who will be 76 next week, piloted a balloon to feet in 1934, accompanied by her husband, the late Jean Piccard. The only woman to go higher in space is the female Soviet cosmonaut, who orbitet the earth. Dr. Piccard told a news conference that the National Geographic Society would not sponsor their balloon flight because it did not want to endanger the life of a mother. "It was perfectly all right In eliminate the father of children, but not the said Dr. Piccard, now a grandmother. Another panelist, Dr. Jean U. Simmons, said women are gair program in scientists ng greater acceptance in sci-1 ence, but still have to work twice as hard as men to prove themselves. Dr. Simmons, mother of three, is chairman of the department of chemistry and assistant to the president of Up-sa a College, East Orange, N.J. She said the lot of female sci-en isls is improving because families are having fewer children, making child-rearing a less burdensome task, and he-cause society's attitudes toward women and their ability and place arc changing. She said must spenb up and do things to end disorim-i n a t i o n" against themselves, and asserted that wromen do not lake sufficient advantage of laws thai require equal treatment, such as equal pay. Dr. Piccard said that "when wcmen got the vote 50 years ago they thought their problems would be solved, but it took some years for them lo realize that getting the vote did not provide tiie.
