Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta J-awi Women's magazine has feminist slant By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor The ilion of Ms. (pronounced the glossy new magazine for women with a mind, is now ai-ailable at 26 news stands in Lothbridge. For it's pos- sible lo delve bilo a sophisti- cated assortment of printed goodies slanted to the liberated woman. Dress patterns, handicrafts, recipes and all the other homey little touches of pro-Ms, women's magazines, have been ruthlessly eliminated. The writers, devotees of the feminist cause, are apparently prepared to go into infinite va- riations on their theme. For the average reader, it is the misfortune of the magazine that there is only the one theme. Repetition tends to lead to monotony. However, many of the ar- ticles are lucid, intercsling and informative, once the reader has overcome the authors' oh- vious prejudice.

Sales were checked after a Ihrec-wcnk period, and assess- ed at roughly SO per cent. Once the public's inilial cu- riosity has been satisfied, it is doubtful if the magazine will appeal to anyone but the most ardent feminist. Meanwhile, lesser mortals will probably turn their atten- tion back to the kind of litera- ture sending out the signal, "up vrith people whatever their sex." Pig gives cold shoulder to wife oi 'U.S. president P EIU NO fAP) Hare- headed in a snowstorm, Mrs. Richard Nixon today visiled an agricultural commune where she mingled sclioolciuld- ren, observed wintertime culti- vation of vegetables and saw a (18-year-old woman gelling an ac'upunclure treatment. Tile wife of the U.S. president walked through intermittently heavy snow, moving down al- leys and across furrowed fields al the B.OOO-acrc Evergreen People's Commune west of Pe- king. Mrs. Nixon was captivated by the schoolchildren she saw. marvelled at the growing of out-of-season vegetables under glass and even fried futilely lo make friends with a rather dirty hog in a sty. .She was most surprised, how- ever, lo observe in the com- mune clinic the aneicnt Chinese acupuncture medical treatment based on the insertion of long needles into the flesh. The two young women who give the treatment told Mrs. Nixon that they attend to about a dozen patients a day. They showed her a grey-hairc woman lying on her side on a cot with more than half a dozen needles protruding from he right arm and leg. The woman said those limh: bad been so numb Ijeforo began a week-long series of aeu puncture treatments that she Abortion solution to overpopulation? CALGARY (CP) Over- populalion is so critical an is- I sue that Canadian women should support political parties which favor abortion on de- mand, says gynecologist Dr. Ken Walter. Dr. Walker, ivho Tmife "On Being a Woman" under the name W. Gifford-Jones, said overpopulation is more serious for a country like O'ada than I for one with less development. j "Nigeria's population will double in 15 years; Canada's will double in ,15. But during that lime Ihe Nigerian people won't want to double their number of roads, telephones and other supporting sen-ices; Canada's people will." The resulting drain on re- sources would be far greater in Canada than Nigeria The alternalive (o limiting birlhs is unlimited population growth, he said, which breeds i crimo, poverty and other socia! ills. The current hospital methot of committees reviewing re quest for therapeutic abortions is "a ritualistic tarce." "It is one of the basic con cepts of medicine never to pass judgment on a patient withoul seeing him." Yet hospital com mitlees judge abortion cases on the basis of the applicants' pa- pers. Dr. Walker said in an in terview. The current approach to birth control pills is hypo- chondriacal, he said, with poh licians and others emphasizing their liabilities and devaluating their advantages. About 1-1 out of one million women died from blood clols attributed to use of the pill, but 300 out of Ihe same number dip in childbirth.
