Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE LETHBRIPQE HERALP - WjU^^^ Strife within Labor Party increases Golda^s future at home looks arduous i 1 By PRANHS OFNER Christian Science Monitor TEL AVIV, Israel -Last month she was elected by an American organization as the world's most respected woman. In Britain she emerged first in a popularity contest - before Queen Elizabeth. But in the most important contest of all, in the first parliamentary elections after the October war, the Israelis approved of Golda Meir only with reservations. Her Labor Party cornered a mere 39 per cent of the total vote. At the same time, the main opposition party, the right-wing Likud, has received, according to unofficial figures, 41 per cent. True, Mrs. Meir still is the country's only candidate for Prime Minister, and her Labor Party still is the strongest force in the Knesset (Parliament). It gained 51 seats out of the total 120, against 39 for the Likud. But the future - at home, at the Geneva conference, and in the Middle East - looks even more difficult than before for Mrs. Meir. "I don't think Golda is so terribly disillusioned by the election results," a friend said. "She has been in politics long enough to take election setbacks without particular alarm. What really gets her down this time is the needling and sniping from her own crowd." Indeed, in-fighting within the Labor Party has reached alarming proportions since the latest war. Even Deputy Prime Minister Yigal Allon, once widely regarded as Mrs. Meir's choice for succeeding her as premier, made several statements recently that sounded as if calling for her resignation. The harassment within the Labor Party against the two top figures, Mrs. Meir and Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, did not cease after the elections. Votes were still being counted when the Labor Party's campaign manager told newsmen that he saw no possibility of forming a stable government, and therefore new elections were needed soon. Mrs. Meir, surprised by the statement, was dismayed. Some humbler party officials were even less circuitous. They plainly predicted a government without Mrs. Meir and General Dayan. . All of the attacks came from the same camp, that of the "doves." But the leader of that camp, Finance Minister Pinchas Sapir - Labor's most powerful party boss - has carefully avoided any public criticism of Mrs. Meir. They had been political friends and allies for nearly two decades. Both sided with the late premier Levi Eshkol when he struggled against David Ben Gurion in the early 60's. However, the six-day war of 1967, with its conquests of Arab territories, drove the two into separate camps. Mrs. Meir veered nearer to the "hawks" and Mr. Sapir became leader of the "doves." The trouble with the Dec. 31 Knesset election is that it produced no clear mandate to either camp. How this internal situation will effect the Geneva 'conference is widely debated here. Most party leaders agree it will have little, jf any, influence on the current - military disengagement - phase of the talks. Ail potential partners in Mrs. Meir's next coalition government have one thing in common: They want "the boys back home." This could be done only after a separation of forces. Forecasts are equally optimistic regarding the next government's stand on the question of an overall settlement with Egypt. Any real difficulties are expected to arise when the issue of a settlement with Jordan comes up. A stalemate could result. Will Mrs! Meir then succeed in prevailing on her countrymen to trust her judgment? Or will new elections become unavoidable? Or a third possibility: will Mrs. Meir t^.en resign and cede the helm to another leader? Those who know her believe the last as the least likely path. larassment continues In-fighting within Israel's Labor Party has reached alarming proportions since the latest war.

By JULIE FLINT LONDON (AP) - European feminists are publishing a new type of women's magaane designed to shake up the curler-and-crochet set and give liberated ladies a new lease on life. The magazines are not getting rich, but their message seems to be spreading beyond the ranks of committed women's liberationists. They're written, designed and edited by feminists. Wide-ranging, unaggressive and usually self-financed, they place science, art and current affairs above miracle makeups and the latest sex techniques. Cheers are reserved for new advances in child care, community aid and contraception. The practicality of the magazines reflects a change in the women's lib movement in Europe away from the unbridled clamor of the late 1960s. In Britain, for example, militant feminists suspended noisy countrywide demonstrations for grassroots work.

"We're read by lefty politicos and ordinary women with kids at home as well as by feminists." aRCULATION CLIMBING First published in the summer of 1972, Spare Rib has a climbing circulation of 20,000, midway between Norway's Si-rene, with 35,000, and Holland's Opjiz Mak Way with 5,080. All three fall well short of the circulations of traditional women's magazines, like the British publications, Woman, with a circulation of 2.7 million and Woman's Real with 1.2 million. Sirene was launched last September selling thousands of newstand copies as Norway's magazine industry floundered. Backed by a leading publisher, it balanced tradition with liberation in hopes of "changing the basic social conditions of Norwegian women," says its editor Bitten Modal. The newest of the magazines is Effe, a slick monthly launched in Rome last November from a new women's cultural centre. Modelled on. the American magazine Ms., Effe channels feminist inforniation and gives Italy's pioneer feminists a chance to reach out to other women in print. It is the brainchild of a small group of working women and housewives who share socialist and feminist beliefs. All the magazines support the feminist demands of free contraception and abortion on demand, equal education and job opportunity and state child care centres. Jack and Jill 21b.

(AP) - The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has taken the pulse of the world's culture and concluded that many people don't like some of its characteristics. "I'm impressed by the vitality of culture all over the world ... and by the increasing diversity of cultures," UNESCO Director-General Rene Maheu told an interviewer. But contemporary painting, sculpture and music had got ahead of the taste of the "masses of the public." "They accept everything that comes along, with resignation," he declared. "They accept. But they don't understand. And they don't like it." Maheu, 63, a lean, white-haired Frenchman, was elaborating on a report that he gave to the General Assembly. THE BETTER HALF Artists can sell paintings the public dislikes, he explained, because comparatively few rich buyers can be subjected to "the tyranny of fashion." They buy either to be fashionable or to make money. But the general public is less enthusiastic because painters, sculptors and composers, instead of reflecting popular tastes, are "reacting to the crisis" of urban civilization. Abstract painting and electronic music, especially, are "an effort to build new forms and expressions of artistic beauty more consonant with the surroundings in which we live." The report found town planning "still at the stage of theoretical research," blamed architecture for "a deplorable lack of imagination" and accused the mass media of stifling culture through "commercial, political or ideological" conditioning.
