Herald Family Europeans dominate world9s best-dressed NEW YORK (AP) The ti- tled and talented, the flamboyant and the conservative, the dressed-up and undressed all made the International Best-Dressed list for 1973. While dominated by Eu- ropeans, the list of 12 men and 12 examples of elegance without include such Americans as Mary Wells Lawrence, David Bruce, U.S. representative in Peking, and Senator Barry Goldwater. Among those elevated to the Fashion Hall of Fame were Mrs. Henry Ford II, Mrs. Ron- ald Reagan and Mr. and Mrs. Oscar de la Renta. The annual best-dressed list was voted on by fashion designers, reporters and social and theatrical personalities. Final tabulations were made by 20 leading fashion editors and announced by publicist Eleanor Lambert. "We looked for people with a personal, elegant flair. Gone are those crazy years of freaky said one committee member. Motor racing -driver Peter Revson, a handsome bachelor, was the male glamour entry, a Open daily from 9 30 a m. lo 5 30 p.m Thursday and Frnday 9 30 a m Jo 9.00 p m Centre Village Tefeptone 328-9231 spot vacated by actor Robert Redford who didn't make the list this year. Mrs. Samuel P. Reed, also named to the Best Dressed Hall of Fame, said she was wearing blue jeans and giggled when told of her selection. David de Rothschild of the Paris banking family thought it was "a great compliment" to be selected. He is the beau of Marisa Berenson, also a winner. Miss Berenson favors long, fluttery dresses and picture hats but is remembered for a nude appearance in a fashion magazine. Canada's archaic laws penalize married women By JEAN SHARP TORONTp (CP) Married women who take an "I'm all right, Jack" attitude toward the women's rights movement should take a look at laws that affect them, says Marie Corbett. "By virtue of being married you may suffer more than your single sister. Married women are being penalized for being married." Miss Corbett is a lawyer, and a member of the Ontario Status of Women Council. "Some legislation on the job exists. It doesn't prevent dis- crimination, but it is a stick for a working woman to use. "But in marriage, the woman has nowhere to turn. What does she do after 25 years when she thought she was contributing to the family unit but she was contributing to her husband? "It's time they started lob- bying." Miss Corbett cited as exam- ples of what can happen two recent cases of women who claimed shares in the farms they had lived and worked on for years, and lost in court battles. Lost case Irene Murdoch of Nanton, Alta., took her case to the Su- preme Court of Canada. She said she ran the ranch when her husband was away for protracted periods and did ranching chores as well as household chores even when he was there. Miss Corbett said: "Had Irene Murdoch worked for her neighbor or not been married to James Murdoch, she would probably have succeeded or at least obtained back wages. "Because she was married to the man she worked for and with, the archaic rules of family and property law were applied. She had made a "normal contribution.'" Since then the similar case of Helen Rathwell of Fort Qu'Appelle has come before the court in Saskatchewan with the same legal result. Miss Corbett said the ruling would apply to any kind of business as well as to prop- erty such as a cottage that both partners had worked to build. The Ontario status council has asked for legisla- tion to prevent such a situ- ation in Ontario, but Miss Corbett is dubious about im- mediate success. "All married women should be concerned that'the law at present means that assets ac- quired by the husband during marriage are considered en- tirely his and that a wife may not be compensated for an in- direct economic contribu- tion." No credit Miss Corbett said there are other areas in which married women face more legal diffi- culties than single women. Credit is one. "At present a housewife de- pendent solely on her husband for support will be required to have her husband become equally responsible for a debt. Single women can get credit, but often get less credit than men. "Working married women suffer because many banks and institutions refuse to take the wife's income into account or severely discount it This is in spite of the fact that two- thirds of working women are married." The name a woman wants to use is also affected. Miss Corbett said not many women realize a woman does not have to take her hus- band's name when they marry. "It's a matter of custom, not a matter of law. A mar- ried woman may be known by her husband's name and by her maiden name or may re- sume her maiden name after being known by her husband's name. "Yet a married woman en- counters practical problems such as not getting official documents and payroll cheques in her maiden name. It may seem a trifling prob- lem to many married women who are happy to be Mrs. John Smith, but if married women are divorced, separated, widowed or wish to retain a maiden name for pro- fessional reasons, it is a real issue. "The married woman may be required to process an ap- plication to a judge under the Change of Name Act to change a name she was not legally required to adopt in the first place. "It is time for married women to realize the law dis- criminates against them, that they are penalized by virtue of the marriage relationship. While they are enjoying the legal duty of a husband to support a wife, they have no legal claim to the fruits of their own labors. "No rights or privileges have been automatically ac- quired by women or granted by men as an acknowledg- ment of the contribution of women to society. "Nothing ever happens un- less somebody does some- thing, and that's usually a woman. They had to fight to get educated, fight for the vote, to get licensed in the professions. "If married women don't do something now, after the re- sults of Rathwell and Mur- doch, then nothing's going to be changed." HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
