Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, February 8, 1975. Woman MLA to seek NDP leadership VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia MLA Rosemary Brown (NDP Vancouver said- this week that she is consider- ing running for the leadership of the federal New Democratic Party. Ms. Brown said the possibility of her entry into the leadership race raises the question of the "suitability not of a woman, but of a feminist being leader of a socialist party." She said it was impossible for a socialist party leader not to be committed to feminism. She said that her election as leader of the party would not preclude the stand already taken by the party on such issues as development of the Alberta tar sands or price fluctuations for food. Premier Dave Barrett said last month that if Ms. Brown were to run for election as party leader "she would cer- tainly be a favorite daughter from B.C." Mr. Barrett has said he would not seek the national NDP leadership at a party convention to be held this summer. F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALL 6th Ave. A and 13th ST. N.

Toinphono 328-9231 Betty Ford pushes ERA ratification WASHINGTON (AP) Betty Ford is doing some long-distance campaigning for ratification of the women's Equal Rights Amendment President Ford's wife calU ed two Republican Missouri legislators just before the state House of Represen- tatives passed the amendment this week, said Mrs. Ford's press secretary, Sheila Weidenfeld. "She really wants to see this thing go through, it's impor- tant to Mrs. Weidenfeld said. In the last two weeks, Mrs. Ford has written letters and called several Republican legislators in Illinois, North Dakota and Missouri. Mrs. Fnrd, expressing her own backing for ERA, has been asking the state legislators to "vote their con- science and not be influenced by those against ERA just because of political lob- the press secretary said. Thirty-four states have rati- fied the amendment, which would ban sex discrimination in the United States.. Four more states must act for the amendment to become part of the U.S. constitution. Lynne Van Luven The wisdom of turning on NEWS ITEM: "Outdoor Christmas decorations, says Winter Games President Charles Virtue, are an appropriate way for Southern Albertans their hospitality to visitors here for the 13-day event" Oh, dearie me. I'm in an absolute tizzy, so great is my dilemma. On the one hand, I do so want to do the hospitable thing. In this day of untrammelled sociability, who among us has the intestinal fortitude to shout, "Bah, humbug, down with Not I, a person of unshakeable moral turpitude if ever there was one. Then again, on the other hand, I also want to do the logical thing an energy conscious member of the herd, I do not want to waste electricity needlessly. And, if I may be so bold, a call to plug in and light up as a hospitable gesture, does seem to be a blatant waste of energy. Ah yes, I know, Thomas Edison's little invention really does not gobble up much electricity unless multiplied 10 to times and left burning for 13 days. Continuing in this viqious, unhospitable tirade, I might as well suggest that the incoming hordes of athletes from all across our far flung land, will not look upon glowing red and green bulbs, blinking at them from every other residence, as a warm welcome to our fair city. They'll simply reach one logical conclusion from such a dis- play: that Southern Albertans are a shiftless, lax and lazy lot. That, living in a province full of resources, most of us are total- ly unable to summon the energy to remove our Christmas baubles, even though the holidays have long since passed. Great Thundering Reindeer even the white sales are over a sure sign we've left the Yuletide season far, far behind. You can see my dilemma now, can't you? I don't want to contribute to that Great Eastern Canadian Myth that all inhabitants west of Kenora are little more than backwoods (or should one say bumpkins. i I must commend the Winter Games bosses for restraining themselves, though. They could have suggested we put up crepe paper streamers, dig the de-nuded tree out of the garbage and re-stage the whole Dec. 25 celebration. Or that we welcome in- dividual out of towners with gifts such as life like statues of Pharley Q. Pheasant, fashionable 'feasant' key chains and elegant plastic desk sets, tastefully decorated with the Games logo. Not to mention Winter Games pennants and T-shirts which local merchants have so lavishly displayed in their stores, and from which they'll make scarcely a penny's profit. I'm sorry Mr. Virtue. I will (perhaps) hang up the Winter Games poster which one of your breathless young runners delivered to my door this week. I'll smile pleasantly at any athletes I meet in our neighborhood. And if they're lost, I'll try to direct them back to the proper venue. But my paltry string of blue mini lights are going to stay down, packed snugly away in the basement.
