Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdmidiy, January 15, THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 23 Reform synagogue elects first woman president Women's liberation. major stress factor THE BETTER HALF By Barnts More men seeking counselling TORONTO (CP) Henrietta Chesnie, first wuinan eiected to the presidency of Holy Blossom Temple, plans a more outgo- ing role for the 125-year-old reform synagogue. A 51-year-old former physi- otherapist who was elected by acclamation to head the member institution, she pro- poses to take the message of Judaism to Jews all over To- ronto. "The real question is the survival of said Mrs. Chesnie. "If people can't come to us, we will bring them back by going to them." The approach is fairly radi- cal. Traditionally, the syna- gogue is the centre of the Jew- ish community, a tradition dating back to an era when the temple was within walking distance of the homes of its members. Mrs. Chesnie has started lunchtime religious classes downtown for lawyers and in hospitals for doctors. She also wants to make the synagogue more responsive to the "need for personal contact" by setting up small social and educational groups: IN 1962 Extensive high-grade iron- ore deposits, estimated at 127.7 million tons, were dis- covered on northern Baffin Island, N.W.T., in 1962. Married to Dr. Joshua Chesnie and with two grown children, Mrs. Chesnie is a member of the board of Jewish education, an ex- ecutive of the Canadian Jewish Congress, a board member of Mount Sinai Hospital and on an allocation board of the United Communi- ty Fund. Since 1971, she has returned to university to take courses in philosophy, sociology and art history. TORONTO (CP) More men are seeking personal counselling and women's lib- eration is a stress factor men- tioned by these men, a coun- sellor says. "There's a new trend; women are leaving men and they are talking openly about their love Rev. Don Gillies, director of the In- stitute of Human Relations, said in an interview. "The shoe is on the other foot, so to speak, and some men simply don't know how they should react." Farrell Toombs, 'assistant director of the University of Toronto student advisory bu- reau, said the men'with the real problems are those "who are aware of the situation, but who talk about women's new goals as being 'garbage.'" Dr. Don McCulloch, psy- chiatrist and director of the bureau, said that while some men feel women's liberation threatens their masculinity, sometimes husbands showing the most distress are ones with the most positive atti- First aid program now multi-media experience VANCOUVER (CP) First aid is changing. The St. John Ambulance course now is a multi-media experience. At a trial run, 18 top physi- cians, British Columbia government officials and educationists attended a scaled-down version of the course. The course is a juxtaposi- tion of vivid film segments, practical training and workbook sessions. It normal- ly takes eight hours but it was shaved to just under four for CMM'SCttlWTICMNIMRy SHOE SALE CONTINUES WITH GREAT SAVINGS KIR STEP i JOYCE SHOES Still a good selection.

Ken Scorse, a director of training for St. John Ambu- lance, said the program was devised because of a convic- tion that people trained in first aid are more likely to be safety-conscious. He said studies have found that first-aid training can de- crease the accident rate by 30 to 40 per cent. "As a result of this, it was felt that there was a need to train the bulk of the pop- ulation. So a course was developed that could be con- ducted in an eight hour period." He said he hoped the course will be adopted in school pro- grams so that' eventually everybody, will have first-aid. A. E. Soles, associate depu- ty minister of education programs, said after par- ticipating in the course there is a good chance of it being brought schools at the Grade 9 and Grade 12 levels. A safety course sponsored Black woman NAACP chairman NEW YORK (AP) Margaret Bush Wilson was elected this week as the first black woman board chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People "1 assume they elected me because I'm competent and the St. Louis lawyer said at a news conference. Roy Wilkins, executive director of the NAACP, appeared at the news conference with Mrs. Wilson. He said she defeated three male candidates in the elec- tion at a closed session of the board.

Dr. Gerry Ryder, chief of a two-hospital group of emer- gency physicians, said he was impressed with the course and the use of audio-visual aids, as well as the variety and pace, which maintained interest. He suggested that a first aid course should be tied to driver's licences so that everybody who drives a car can take care of accident vic- tims. He said he learned something from the course, mainly about bandaging, because it wasn't taught in medical school and nurses do it at hospitals. tude toward the women's movement. "For instance, one couple I heard about said they didn't want to confuse love and fi- he said. "They wished to be free, but when it came down to the nitty-gritty, the going was rough." Dr. McCuiloch said the hus- band had a mistress but his reaction was negative when his wife had other lovers. Bob' Couchman, executive director of the Family Service Association of Metropolitan Toronto, said it was unusual to find men initiating family counselling. He said the peak periods for conflict are' when women want to go back to work, or early in a marriage when the question of starting a family arises. Many women fail to appre- ciate that men are less liber- ated than they would like to think, Ife said. A man is "tied down by economics, working for the la- bor Mr. Couchman said, "He may be free to go outside the home, and meet people at work, but he's not truly liberated." Dr. Sy Silverberg, director of education and growth op- portunities at the centre for continuing education at York University, said women should try to understand men's feelings about women's liberation so that they can be less demanding and more sen- sitive. It is often less easy for a man to put into practice than to accept intellectually the idea of giving up a "comfort- able situation" and taking on some of the "joe he said. "But I think these men have got to take responsibility for their own feelings of in- security or fear, and not lay them back on their Dr. Silverberg said. Mr. Couchman said the problem will only be resolved by talking about people liber- ation. "Talking about the issue separately, only leads to pola- he said. "Stanley just had his stomach pumped out.
