Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Dctcmbcr 30, 1971 Canadian nlilons polled argaret l r UL ivoman year Margaret Ti'udeau lias wen voted must iicttssMirthy Cana- dian woman of the year by Canada's newspaper and broadcast w o m e n editors and family-page editors Mrs. Trudcau. who married I he prime mirastiT in March, lead the voting in a poll of about 711 editors. Votes are based on news interest. They chose ('.race Maclnnis as most n e w s w o r t h y woman in the public affairs category. Betsy I'liffoid in sports, Dr. '''''in Sutherland Boggs in literature and art and Anne Mil: ray in enter- tainment. The vote on ihe news stoi-y of the year was about evenly split belv.cen women's rights and abortion. The vote for Mrs. Trudeau was not overwhelmingly large, in spite of a recent in- crease in stories while she awaited the hiilh of a child. Most of the publicity con- cerning her centred around Ihe first friv weeks of thc-ir marriage and their official trip to Ihe Soviet Union U'.o months laier. SI ItPIHSK TO MANY Mrs. Trudcall, is the for- rrer Margaret Sinclair of V a n c o u v e r. Her father is James .Sinclair, a ImiMiiv; products company executive and former Liberal fisheriis minister. Her March 4 wedding to the Prime Minister surprised most Canadians including, ap- parently, friends and col- leagues' of the bride and groom. Mrs. Maclnnis. NDP Ml' for Vancouver-Kingsway has been chosen most newsworthy woman in public affairs fey Ihc second time. She has been the on'y woman member of Parliament since the IflC'i election. This has been a year of hon- ors for her. SKc was included in a list of of the world's most important women, cho- CJ Ivf u u Attacks condemneo as mental torture sen by correspondents for a Paris Marie-Clfiiro. last -May, Brock University in St. Catharines, Out., con- ferred ar, honorary LLD on her, and in November she was named Woman of the Year by the Toronto chapter of B'na'i B'rilii. TOP CIIOICU AGAIN Singer Anne Murray was named most newsworthy in entertainment for the second consecutive year. Miss Murray did several CBC specials and U.S. televi- sion shows this year, and was given two Canadian industry awards for her 1070 accom- plishments. In she was feted by h-er home town, Springhill, N.S. About people turned up for an old home week held to honor her. Betsy Clifford, the young skier from Ottawa, made news by winning the special slalom in Schruns, Austria, and the slalom in Val d'l'scrc to finish second in over-all slalom standing in World Cup competition. Hiss Clifford is rated by some observers as a skier who might win a World Cup. In March she was sus- pended for the season from Canada's national ski team for violating a curfew after the U.S. national competition in Aspen, Colo. The continuing campaigns for ana' against liberalizing Canada's abortion laivs re- ceived as many votes as the biggest news story of the year of p a r t i c u1 a r concern to women as did the story of the growing interest in women's riqIMy. EXPLAIN VOTING S e v e r a 1 women's editors I commented on their choice in general terms, rather than in I terms of specific incidents. i Judy Brandow of The S'pec- I talor'in II a mi 1 ton said; I "Abortion is the- story of the year, but it does not directly involve or affect as many I women as the ever-all reas- sessment and changing atti- tudes of the majority of women. This new thinking. I believe, is the story o[ the year.'' Mary McKim, St. John's, Nfld.. 'Telegram staffer, in a note endorsed b> two co-wcrk- ers, says: ''Margaret Trudeau is indisputably the most writ- ten-about woman in Canada, but the woman who, in my opinion, has made the most impact en Canada as a social entity is the woman, the many women, wiio are awakening io their potential as human beings and seeking to break out of tire stereotype that has been imposed on us tor so long. "It is the woman on the job, in the house, doing tho slap- ping, who is confronting the new' challenges and opportuni- ties that are slowly opening and must be explored if they are to be enlarged to the point where the subject of Ihc equality of women will no longer be a matter of ques- tion.'' DUBLIN (API Mairin Lynch, wife of tire Irish prime minister, is a shy housewife who once said: "Put me on a platform in front of an audi- i ence and I just shrivel up." I But events in Northern Ire- i land have shoved her into the political arena. Mrs. Lynch WES angered by last month's of girls in the BegticV quarter of Londonderry. Tliree girls' hair was cut off and two were daubed with tar and red printer's ink. The punishment was given by older women who disapproved of the girls' plans to marry British soldiers. After the incidents Mrs. Lynch said: "How ashamed I was of my sex that they could be capable of conceiving, let calendar of local liappcniiKji Southminster square j learners' group will dance Mon- day at S p.m. in Southminstcr I Hall. Women arc asked to please bring a box lunch. The regular meeting of Lau- rel Chapter No. 43 OES, will j be held in the Masonic Hall on Monday at p.m. There will be an installation of offi- j cers. Please note change of I time.

The 24-hour security guard at the Lynch home in- creased its vigilance. But Mrs. Lynch went on to express sympathy for Lucy Connolly, a Dundalk girl whose fiance, a British pri- vate, was shot dead after crossing the border into the south to see his sweetheart. IRA extremists were sus- pected of the killing. Mrs. Lynch expressed her views in a letter to the newspapers. "What right have these so- called arbiters of justice to wreck thi. lives of young peo- she demanded. Mrs. Lynch is 46. Few peo- ple recognize graphs of her are i-are. She ccn still go shopping unno- ticed in Dublin, but acquaint- ances regard her as a strong force behind the prime minis- ter. Jack Lynch. Mrs. Lynch, the former Mairin O'Connor, was the only child of a judge. She worked as a civil servant and first met her husband when he was on vacation. The Lynchs married in 1946.

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "If Morher Nature intended you to wear that, she would have arranged it so you married a mink farmer!

She is very bossy always has to have the last worn" and tries to improve on everything I do. For example: Yesterday I was happily icing down some beer in our cooler. She comes over and says, "You shouldn't stand the cans up like that. Lay them down on their sides." Then, while I was pouring crushed ice over the cans she said, "You shouldn't heap up the ice like that. Put it on in layers.'1 I realize this sounds petty and childish, but it's the same way wiUi everything. If I empty an ashtray she's behind me, wiping it over because I didn't do it right. If I fold a road map, she has to refold it. It wasn't straight enough. I think I've made myself clear. What can I do about this maddening habit? In Tyler DEAR TY: Nothing. She's a compulsive re-doer and a perfectionist. You'll never change her. Accept the fact that she's got this neurotic quirk and keep telling yourself, "she's a good even though a IHLlc cuckoo." DEAR ANN LANDERS: What do you think of a NURSE (age 24) who gets pregnant on the Uiird date, says she wants the baby, but wouldn't marry the guy on a he's not her type. He is the "wrong" religion (she's Catholic) and he belongs to the "wrong" political party. {She's a Demo- crat.) They have nothing in common and she doesn't par- ticularly enjoy his company. Does this man have a legal obligation to support the child if I can get the dummy to accept help from him? She's my daughter and I am besio'e myself. Mother DEAR .MOTHER: The man does indeed have a legal ob- ligation to support his child, but if yinir daughter won't ac- cept help, he is off the hook. If you ever find out what the girl uses for brains, let me know. v DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am in the lilth grade and al- ready I am writing to Ann Landers. A kid in our class said was bom in a drive-in theatre. He claims his father was driving his mother to the hospital and on the way, they noticetf a movie they had both been wanting to see for a long time. S'o they slopped and he was born sudden- ly. Is this Wondering DEAR JUST: It's possible, hut not likely. Usually when a lady is on her way to the hospital to have a baby she is in no shape to enjoy a movie. SNOW, SNOW, LUVERLY SNOW Crisp, white snow lies inches deep along the coulees, and what better way to spend the holiday season than to haul out an old, oversized inner tube or anything else that slides, and head for those beckoning slopes. _ 29P EATON'S after-Christmas A bonanza of values for after Christmas shoppers.
