Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Will you please stop the unwarranted browbeating of men and women - grown and on their own-who prefer not to associate with their parents? These children are not always the spoiled, inconsiderate, unkind, thoughtless clods you make them out to be. More often than not they were ignored as youngsters or treated badly. But they grew up in spite of the agony and somehow managed to mature sufficiently to overcome the most difficult of life's obstacles - a loveless childhood. They have learned to live without parental affection or approval. Some parents discover, as the years come faster and faster, one after the other, pany of their children. When their children are not eager DEAR ANN LANDERS: Shame on you. What has happened to your flair for flexibility? Why shouldn't a woman find more than one use for a wedding gown? If she uses her imagination the possibilities are endless. For example: One night I was feeling especially romantic (we hsd been married WeeWhimsy CJf me ?oP Eric Seylfer receives the original art for his Wee Whimsy. Send yours to thU paper. for their belated friendship they feel very sorry for themselves and are completely mystified as to why they are being treated so shabbily. You, Ann Landers, don't help much when you castigate the children and beseech them to "forgive and forget." You ask the impossible. - A Victim In Detroit Dear A.V.: All right, don't forgive and don't forget. Continue to harbor your hate and feed on resentment. Then what do you have, besides a colossal load of hostility? Don't you understand that your parents were the result of what happened to them when THEY were children? Of course it's sad to grow up unloved and without parental approval, but somehow you made it. If you can replace some of that anger with a little compassion you will be the better for it. less than six months) and my husband wasn't in the mood, so I put on my wedding gown. It was a marvelous aphrodisiac! The wedding gown ended up being a nightgown. I slept in it at least a dozen times after that and then moved the zipper from the back to the front and wore it as a beach cover-up. It was perfect. "A few weeks ago the zipper broke so I made' a smock out of the dress and yesterday I washed the car in it. So you see, Ann, if a woman uses her noodle she can really get her money's worth out of an expensive wedding gown. I paid $200 for mine and it doesn't owe me one cent. - Bonita In Birmingham DEAR BON BON: Now you're what I call a girl with natural resources. But everyone can't sleep in her wedding gown. Some gowns have skin-tight sleeves, a couple dozen buttons down the back, lace insets, not to mention wire - hooped skirts, embroidered rosettes, seed-pearls and sequin trims. This would be murder to sleep on. But thank you for your suggestion. I wouldn't be surprised if dozens of women went to bed in their wedding gowns tonight.

(CP) -Candy Fawcett says she isn't going to let a little thing like the lack of a women's washroom stand between her and fulltime employment as a logging longshorewoman on the Port Alice waterfront. "I'm not the frills and lace type, and a job on a boat would suit me just fine," said Mrs. Fawcett, a vivacious 24-year-old mother of two whose husband is a millworker. She said in an interview she is determined to win the washroom war, now being fought on the docks at the Rayonier Canada Ltd. mill in this community of the northern end of Vancouver Island. The tempest in a toilet bowl centres on the company's refusal to lure women on the boats on grounds that proper washroom facilities, as required by the Provincial Factories Act, simple aren't up to scratch. The United Paperworkers Iri-ternaitio^ial Union, Local 514, has complained to B.C. Labor Minister William King that women have been thwarted in their efforts to obtain Rayonier employment for some time because of the washroom factor. TOILET 60 YARDS AWAY Mike Durkin, president of the Port Alice local, said that although there are no women's toilets in the immediate dock area, there is one in the company's offices about 60 yards from the docks. And the latest woman seeking employment - Doris Rowan - said she has been turned down twice in the past month for lack of a women's washroom. She said in an affidavit that personnel supervisor Harry Hamper told her she couldn't be hired because of the toilet shortage. "It was the same when ] tried to get hired," said Mrs Fawcett. "The foreman said the toilet facilities were inadequate. "Well, there's a 10 minute coffee break in a four hour shift and that's plenty of time to go 60 yards to the office, Mrs. Fawcett says she wants a job as a checker, the person that makes sure the right load of pulp goes into the right hold of a vessel during loading. A checker earns $4.29 am hour. CONSIDERATE OF MEN "I would never take a job away from a man who has to feed a wife and kids, but if there's a job a man doesn't want, then I'd like a chance at it," she said. "The company has been having a little trouble finding people for these jobs." Mrs. Fawcett said she went to the docks "every morning for a week" recently in an effort to get Rayonier to sign her up. "I wore a hardftat arid a pair of my husband's safety shoes with stee] caps because he takes the same size I do. I walked down on the dock past the men to the checker's office and I got a lot of rude comments, but I just kept on walking." She said that on at least one occasion, three other women were there. City couple gives up modern life TORONTO (CP) - Doug White, 25, and his wife Sandy, 23, have left Toronto to live on a 124 acre farm by the side of the Grand River at Malpeque Bay in Prince Edward Island. The Whites might represent a growing, but unmeasured, trend to flight from the city to the country. Doug is a graduate civil engineer and Sandy a social worker. Both are used to the luxuries of running water, central heating and modern appliances. Their new three bedroom home offers a wood stove for heating and cooking, a well for water until the pipes thaw in spring, pure air, quiet and plenty of free time. "When I graduated from university (University of Toronto), I decided I didn't want to be a civil engineer," Doug said in an interview before leaving. "I thought about taking post graduate city and regional planning, but knew if I studied another two years, I would get into a position that would be hard to leave." TOURED EUROPE The Whites travelled Europe for six months and when they returned took jobs in community action projects. About a year ago Doug started a community newspaper to warn residents of pollution, lack of parks and the need to control development. Doug said the paper has a circulation of 20,000 and now can stand on its own. "We stood in line and the foreman picked the men-not us. That's the way hiring is done. But to be fair, I must say some of the men were sent home too." Mrs. Fawcett said that to date, the company has hired only one woman checker. That was last year, and she worked only'twice before being let go. OTHER WOMEN DAUNTED Mr. Durkin said several women in Port Alice have expressed am interest in working as checkers, but have been discouraged by the company and the washroom factor. Peter Jemmeson, public health and factories inspector for the upper Vancouver Island health unit, confirmed in an interview that he was the one who deemed women's toilet facilities inadequate on the Port Alice waterfront. "I didn't pace out the distance down the dock, but I'd say it was closer to 100 yards than 60 yards to the office washroom. I would not like to see anyone do that and back in 10 minutes in the rain." A Rayonier spokesman . in Vancouver said the company does not discriminate against women in its employment practices and has several working in sawmills and logging camps. "We are just adhering to the Factories Act in this case." THE BETTER HALF ..... W By Barnes "You were crazy about it the last time we had it. . . Last night!" Wednesday, February 74, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 25 Firing of Maggie Morris aids ivoman announcers EDMONTON (CP) - Maggie Morris calls it the "famous firing" and says the commotion which followed prompted the CBC to hire more female announcers. It was a surprise to most CBC television viewers when, in April, 1970, the CBC dismissed its first-and at that time, only -woman announcer. The corporation told her she had developed an accent unsuitable for broadcasting, but Maggie considers that a red herring. Why does she think she was fired? "Well, I'm a woman," she said. "I fought a hard battle to get on as an announcer in the first place. But there's not much sympathy for women an- nouncers in broadcasting." Her dismissal marked the end of a long broadcasting career as an announcer, free-lancer, and as a regular performer for six years on the CBC television quiz show Flashback. She says she'll never broadcast again and doesn't miss it a bit. "I haven't the performing mentality," she explained while in Edmonton in her new career as publicist with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. "I don't have to be performing all the time to be happy. "Broadcasting was a means to an end. I had to earn a living and I was lucky to be able to earn it such a pleasant way. WE HAVE IT!
