Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We are a happily - married, middle-aged couple. Our children are grown now and we have been taking our! vacations abroad. My husband is an amateur photographer and if I say so myself, he does take very good pictures. Last night we invited three couples over for, supper. My husband asked if they would like to see slides of our recent trip to the Dalmatian coast. When they said yes. he hauled nut the projector awl the viewing began. To my complete amazement, every tenth picture was a provocative photograph of a naked girl. Some were obviously postcards, others he had clipped from magazines. The men applauded and shouted, "More! More!" The women were noticeably silent. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Like millions of others in this country I am fed up to the teeth with women's lib. I'm the owner of a business and sick and tired of the heat I'm getting to hire dames to do a man's job. Equal opportunity and fair employment practices, they call it. Well, what about equal opportunity and some fair employment practices for me? I've got my life's saving in this business and I think I should have the right to say who I want working for me. I read a while back about a 48-year-old woman who wanted to be a telephone lineman - excuse me, linewo-man. She accidentally cut a high voltage power line with a pair of pliers and was burned to a crisp. When are women going to I was embarrassed almost to death. After the guests left I asked my husband what was the big idea. He said, "I wanted to keep them awake and it really did the trick, didn't if" I had to agree, but I think it was in poor taste. He claims it was fun and made the evening much more interesting. If I'm a prude, Ann, tell me. If he's a dirty old man. tell HIM. We'll both be watching for your answer. -Portland Wife DEAR PORT: Your husband ought to save the nudies for his more vulgar male friends. A good photographer shouldn't need to sling in .s'-ots of n"ked 'adies to keep his audience awake. Tell your husband Ann voles no in mixed company. leam that they don't belong every place? You sound like a level - headed skirt who knows the score. Tell those bleeding hearts, will you please? - I Have Rights. Too DEAR I.H.R.: Women DON'T belong every place but the example you dredged up to illustrate the point was a poor one. I remember when the woman was electrocuted, but accidents do happen, and hundreds of male linework-ers have met similar fates. As more women move into mom's jobs we will see how well or how poorly they do. There will always be some women ho want to do heavy, masculine - type work, and I say, let 'em do it. If a male, on the other hand, wants to do femate - type work, that's all right with m% too. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Before you put that rock cod on the scale, remove the rock."

Extreme lib labelled sexual prudery WINDSOR, Ont. (CP) - Author Sheila Kieran of Toronto said here that extreme Women's Lib is a kind of sexual prudery. She told an audience at University of Windsor's Weekend for Women , that extreme Women's Libbers must be given a place in the movement, if only to provide a scale by which other women can judge themselves, but it must be remembered that "men are not the enemy." "If they are such sweaty oppressors what are we going to do-start having relationships with swans?" Mrs. Kieran, who characterized herself, as a middle-of-the-road Libber, is the author of the Non-Deductible Woman. A woman's priority should be to think about "what it is that gives meaning to her life and decide what is appropriate for her." She should not feel guilty about her decision to work outside the home or to remain in the home. But if she decides to stay in the home she must remind herself that what the livingroom rug looks like and beef stroga-noff for dinner are not as important as the feelings of her children and husband. "She has to ensure the man in the household is more than a breadwiner and stud.' The media, which "encourages us to hate our bodies' by such products as feminine sprays and the portrayal of women as 'daffy," should be constantly monitored. She pointed to the lack of women in senior levels of gov- ernment and said the solution is 'don't vote for women unless they are really good women." If unqualified women get elected it will reflect badly on the principle of women in government-Margaret Birch, minister without portfolio and director of the new youth secretariat for the Ontario government, said in an interview before the conference commenced that she ex- pects most municipal governments will be composed almost entirely of women within 10 years. Mrs. Birch, the first woman cabinet minister in Ontario, said women feel drawn toward questions of health services, education and municipal services like garbage disposal and ecology. Mamie Clark, director of the Minister to open Health Minister Neil Crawford has indicated his willingness to officiate at the opening ceremonies of the Blue Sky Lodge, schedule permitting. Don L e B a r o n, secretary-treasurer of the Alberta Senior Citizens Homes Association, announced on his return from a meeting of the association executive, held in Edmonton last week, that Mr. Crawford has been approached and his reply is expected within a few days. Mr. Le Baron, administrator while men start higher and are j of the Green Acres Founda-groomed" for advancement," [tion. said the public will be in- invited Blue Sky women's centre at Humber College in Toronto, told a panel she thought that the root of discrimination against women in business is the failure of educationists to show high-school girls the opportunities available to them. Women start at the bottom she said. ^4 calendar of local Lapp CONTINUING JOE GREEN'S ANNUAL TEENERS' SHOES Values to $19 Now only ALL PURSES 25^k REGULAR /W PRICES MEN'S and WOMEN'S ODDS and ENDS WINTER BOOTS 9" WOMEN'S HEEL HUGGER SHOES Heel Hugger and Selby Peg. $28 � Now . .
