Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ti.r-tlny, Mnuory 15, 1972 THE inllDRIDCE HErA'.O 13 She. bp.lip.vp.s in Alberta's only woman cabinet minister EDMONTON (CP) Helen t Ilunloy wil lull you she's jusl a small-town girl who duosn'L know what goes on in the big in politics. It lias to he a put-on. After all, she's the only woman cabinet minister in Al- herta's new Progressive Con- scrvative government. And she's not a babe in the woods politically, having been a j town councillor for 11 including five as mayor. She's also paid her dues in the business world, taking a job at a farm implement dealer's and eventually run- ning the place. When it closed through lack of good started her own insurance company and it's going strong. She was even a training ser- working up to the Canadian Army overseas during the Second World War. While she is a bit reticent in i talking lo reporters about her plans for various departments as minister without portfolio, she does have delinitc ideas about the status of women. The 51-year-old brunette- she looks much younger al- though she isn't photogenic- says women must, he more positive about their status. "I think women must adopt a positive a belief that we're equal, that there can't possibly be any discrimination." She said that women are "programed lo fed infe- rior." although she obviously doesn't and said she's never felt discriminated against. "If it's been there I've never noticed it. I made my way in a man's world I never noticed any discrimina- tion. I just did my thing.'1 Her ministry is classified as a part-lime job, so she com- mutes twice a week io her home in Rocky Mountain i Mouse, miles southwest of Kdmonton, where she contin- ues to oversee her company. ''It's my pension plan." She had planned "to semi- retire" this year by giving up her mayoralty position. In- stead, at the urging of Pro- gressive Conservative Leader Peter Loitghced, she entered politics. 'In a way it was a who got me involved.' She'd been critical of a fed- eral Liberal ;ii a meeting in and he'd asked her what she was doing to change things through party action. I wasn't in a party, so I couldn't answer." So she started working uilh a party. Her cabinet duties put her in charge of several divisions, including the women's bu- reau. She's been outspoken in the kind of wonder if there should be a women's bureau when there's not a men's bu- reau or a boy's bureau or v lutl have on."

You made it clear that neither drops in on the oilier uninvited and you are guests in each other's homes. I was shocked by this public confession of formality be- tween a mother and" her daughter. Don't you realize that a child is a child all of her life and marriage does not change it? I have two daughters, both married, and an unmarried ton. The girls come and go as they please and it's always a pleasure to see them. I would consider it an insult if they felt they had to telephone me before coming over. The arm's length arrangement you describe suggests a cold and formal relationship, "it would be very interesting to know what your daughter thinks about being a guest in her mother's home. Missouri DEAR FROM: Only my daughter can answer that ques- tion, so I asked her. Here's a mother of three children: DEAR FROM: Relatives wlio wander in and out of each other's homes strike me as being long on time and shoit on manners. To announce one's visit in of just popping in-is nothing more than an acknowledgement of love's elder brother, respect. It seems to me that one of the greatest favors a mother can do for her children is to raise them to be independent. One way to build independence is by discouraging continuous traffic in and out of one another's homes.- Your conclusion that a policy of no dropping-in is the hallmark of a cold and formal relationship is erroneous. To my way of thinking, it denotes consideration for another per- son's time and privacy. I would do no less for a and my mother and 1 are wry good friends indeed. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I didn't think that letter was very lhc trom llle wlw gavc hcr lulsband a rigorous kiss at, the altar and he yelled, "Turn me loose, will Tire guests all heard and laughed. When we were married in a large church ceremony my husband didn't kiss me. He just stood there. I was hurt and showed it. Several people mentioned it later and that made the hurt worse. Every time I fio to a wedding and see Ihc bride and groom kiss 1 am reminded thai I was a kissless bride and I relive the shame and embarrassment. Please, Ann. tell all couples that the wedding kiss is the sweetest kiss of all. Those of us who were deprived never forget. Worth DEAR F.W.: You told 'em. And 1 Uiank you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is for Maryland woman who blamed herself for having a miscarriage. She went bowling in her fifth month and lost the baby. A friend lold her that if she had carried (lie baby another couple of weeks it could have survived in an incubator. I experienced a similar incident ami I hope yon print my Idler .so will keep their stupid mouths shut. I was eight-mnnllis pregnant and feeling wonderful. One evening when my husband was working lalp I decided In get Ihn house spollo.w bofnrc. 1 went to Hie I got out a ladder and lo wa.vh the kilchcn walls. I was nearly finished when Hie phone rang. II was my girlfriend. When 1 lold her I was washing Ihp kitchen walls she screamed, "Arc you crazy Da you want thai baby to be torn with I ho cord around his neck Well, (hat's exactly what happened two weeks later. I can't describe (he Ihoughts thai went through my head: first anger and hale because 1 thought she had "wished il" on me. Then guill. I was cerlain I had killed my baby. I nearly went out of my mind wilh grief. It was my wonderful ohslelriciail saved my s-inilv. He lold me that wall washing had nothing whatever lo do wilh the slraupulalion. such things happen, ami no one knows why. lie eiuouniged me lo have another baby right, away, and I did. Thank (iod we now have a lipallhy, normal child. SAt, Ann, please lell friends no! lo make such Ih.iughlless, idiotic remarks. And advise the women who have tragedies like mine lo Inlk lo their doctors immediately. Celling all the terrible feelings out into Hie open is only way.- (Had I Dill PEAK I'm glad yon did, Th.'inks for Hie testimony.
