Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 28, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 MR. AND MRS. KIVIO BIAGINI, CENTRE, WITH RAY SPEAKER, LEFT, AND ALLAN WARRACK U.S. trials humiliating for many rape victims THE BETTER HALF By Barnes SALEM, Ore. A young woman told a legislative com- mittee this week what it is like to be a rape victim who appears in court against her attacker in Oregon. "The whole trial was basically on me, I she said. "They said very little about the man." Susan, not her real name, added, "the defence lawyer asked me do I wear a bra, do I have any see through blouses, how many cigarettes I smoke, did I have an orgasm while I was raped, did I enjoy being The jury acquitted the ac- cused rapist, and Susan said he now is facing trial for another rape, which took place while tie was free on his own recognizance before go- ing to trial in Susan's case. Susan agreed to testify before the House of Represen- tatives judiciary committee only if she could remain anonymous. The all male panel is con- sidering proposed changes in state law to prohibit the introduction of evidence in court about a rape victim's past sexual encounters or her general reputation in regard to chastity. The changes have drawn the support of women's groups, police spokesmen and prosecutors as a means of protecting rape victims from courtroom questioning of a sort that discourages many victims from reporting a rape. Susan, in her early 20's, said her assailant "told me he had killed four girls and raped CASH BINGO ST.

She said her rape took place after a chance meeting with a strange man at a tavern she had gone to with a girl friend. She said that after she agreed to drive him home, he ordered her to a secluded place and then assaulted her three times over a four hour period. She said she finally manag- ed to get free and notified police. State Representative Vera Katz of Portland told the com- mittee, "the pain and humilia- tion during the trial is far greater for the woman than the rape attack itself." "A man's'previous rape conviction may not be used unless he takes the she -said. "In other words, legally, a man's previous sex- ual attacks or relationships are of no relevance to his credibility, but once a woman has had sexual relations with one man, a legal presumption exists that she has consented to sexual relations with all men." She also said laws that per- mit questioning about a rape victim's prior sexual ex- perience and moral character are based on myths that exist about rape that women en- joy being raped.

Foster parents' awards one way to say thanks "Thanks seems little to say, but we do mean it With those words Bob Rechner, regional administer of health and social development paid tribute this week to 12 Southern Alberta couples who received citation awards for their devotion to foster children over the past five to 10 year period. The awards were made at a special meeting of the Southern Alberta Foster Parents' Association. Mr. Rechner said the awards were just one small way of "saying thanks for the valuable service foster parents "It is hard to put into words the department's feelings, but we do say thank he added. Receiving awards for 10 years of service as active foster parents were five couples: Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wiens of Coaldale; Mr. and Mrs. Christian Pederson and Mr. and Mrs. Bud Helmer of Lethbridge; Mr. and Mrs. Edward Miller of Warner and Mr. and Mrs. Kivio Biagini of Vauxhall. Foster parents receiving five year awards were Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Appelt, Mr. and Mrs. Glen Dykstra, Mr. and Mrs. Kaj Elkjar and Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Gill, all of Lethbridge; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lindstedl of Nobleford, Mr. and Mrs. John Lybbert of Raymond and Mr. and Mrs. Edward Toews of New Dayton. The foster parent citations are issued on a five year basis to families who have been in- volved with foster children regularly. B.C. oldster contributes to book 'Making History' VICTORIA (CP) On the Sunday after Christmas, Eve- lyn Cameron read one of the lessons at St. Andrew's Pres- byterian Church here. She said she would do the reading as long as they gave her a Bible in large print. "They said they would and that's Mrs. Cameron said She will be 98 this year. "The best way to keep young while growing old is to keep up your interest in and learn all the she said. "I also have a deep belief in God and prayer." A geologist, nurse, pioneer farmer and linguist, Mrs. Cameron recently contributed a chapter to the book Making History, An Anthology of Brit- ish Columbia, which was to go on sale early this year. Mrs. Cameron's personal story makes interesting read- ing in itself. Moving from England, she grew up in Sundsvill in north- ern Sweden where her father had a sawmill. When she was a teen-ager her family moved again to Eidswold, north of Oslo in Norway. She wanted to study medi- cine but her father dis- approved and she chose her next interest and became the first woman to study geology at University of Oslo. After post-graduate studies in London, she opened a chemical laboratory near Oslo, working for her father and an English mining com- pany. While skiing around the countryside one day, looking for minerals she found emer- alds, a find that led to com- mercial mining of the gems until the First World War. Mrs. Cameron came to Can- ada when she was 25, follow- ing her father's death. She was looking for options on mineral deposits with one of her brothers in the Cobalt, Ont., area. When the head of her com- pany died, she embarked on a new career. In October, 1904, she en- rolled in the nursing course at the Winnipeg General Hospi- tal and graduated three years later in the profession she had initially chosen. The following year she mov- ed to the hospital in Nelson, B.C., where she was in charge of the dispensary and operating room. An illness contracted on a visit to her family in Norway necessitated surgery at Winni- peg and an extended con- valescence in a small hospital at Lashburn, Sask. She met a McGill graduate engineer who had a ranch 40 miles north of Lloydminster, Sask., and in 1914 they were married. Donald Cameron took her "to live in the wilds" at a time when Evelyn's culinary abilities were undeveloped. "I didn't know how to farm. I didn't know how to cook, ex- cept jellies and custards like we made in the hospitals. All I knew was how to analyse stones." But with the help of govern- ment pamphlets, she learned all about animals, how to make butter and everything else she needed to know about being a pioneer woman.
