Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID - Thursday, January 31, 1971 Pregnant girls get class at YW WINNIPEG (CP) - The Win-, nipeg School Board approved1 establishment of a special class at the YWCA for school girls who are pregnant and who have dropped their regular studies. The girls now receive tutoring in the'r homes but a report by school superintendent C. F. Moir said the tutor system has proved an inefficient method of teaching and is unsatisfactory. He suggested that a class be started at the YWCA, or that pregnant girls be allowed to continue in their home schools "as long as the situation causes no problems for the school." Trustees, after a debate on the educational rights of the pregnant school girl, voted to adopt the first proposal. Trustee Harvey Baker said if pregnant women are allowed to continue at work, they should be allowed to continue at school. Board chairman Olga Fuga said, "Times have changed and these girls have to live as nor mal lives as possible." Trustee Bob Cochrane, however, said society expects a woman to be married when she becomes pregnant. A girl who was pregnant and unmarried could not expect to be part of the system. Mr. Moir said the number of pregnant girls in the school system has remained steady in recent years at about 17 in every 1,000. "The educational environment we've been providing is not the best." The new policy was "a silent change in philosophy," he said. Women still second sex says Anne Bird OTTAWA (CP) - Women are the satellite sex, with custom relegating them to supporting roles, Anne Francis, chairman of the royal commission on the status of women, said here. Miss Francis, Mrs. John Bird in private life a freelance broadcaster, told the Ottawa Canadian Club there is discrimination against women in Canada. She said, "Prejudice is still very much alive. In our political parties, it is the women who make the sandwiches and the men who make the policies," she said. "Policitally women are outside of the paw er structure." She added: "Our education system is not making girls aware of the possibilities which life holds for them - that they can marry and have a family or a career, or both, or a family combined with volunteer work and en grossing cultural pursuits." "Today the average girl thinks as unrealistically about her future as girls did 40 years ago. Her dream of marriage as the beginning and end of their lives." For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Designers lean towards knickers for a more fashionable spring '71 LADIES' AUXILIARY ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION MEMORIAL HALL TUESDAY, JAN. 26th supper AT 6:30 P.M. general meeting .� ,* social evening >.�. JT'S a good thing to see women in the city taking an active interest in civic politics and civic dffctirs The University Women's Club this week met with Tom Ferguson, former city manager to learn about boards and commissions. They were assured that women could sit on any board, be an alderman, mayor or anything else they were willing to take on and be qualified to do. Perhaps women are shy about asking questions for fear of revealing how little they know about ft topic, but the important thing is that they want to know, and everybody had to ask the same questions once. It's not enough to say that there should be more women as MLAs, MPs, and on municipal boards. There should be more women interested in how the country is run. If you wait until the city's administrative processes are at your back door to start getting involved, you're out in left field as to where to even turn for help. (What does the city manager do, and who should t call?) , There are lots of men who sit back and let "George" do the work of the city, but everyone seems to take it for granted with women. * ? ? The next city elections in October will see not only new vacancies on civic boards and commissions, but eight vacancies on city council, and one mayoralty post. It takes a lot of time for these jobs (sometimes all in one chunk as per the development appeal board marathon which lasted VA hours the other night) but running a city is not easy and it's every citizen's duty to be involved in some small way. Even if you're not in the running yourself, go to a few council meetings so you can see how things are carried out and who does what. * ? ? You'll likely see Rex Little giving his views on the cost of education across the table to Vaughn Hembroff accompanied by the tap, tap, tap of Jim Anderson's pipe in the ashtray. Chick Chichester will be deep in conversation with Camm Barnes to his right punctuated by Mr. Barnes' *' 'n' that right?" Joe Balla will be answering a query of Vera Ferguson about land sales and Steve Kotch will likely try to sell you a ticket to the next chamber function. Mayor Anderson sits at the head of the table and tries to still the babbling brook while keeping the river of progress flowing. * ? ? It's sometimes dull, often interesting and the topics under decision and discussion are usually announced by the media when they are received from city hall. ? ? ? And for those diehards who wonder why women are making such a fuss about the right to be admitted to things like press clubs, etc. There are clubs which men can go to (by membership) to escape from work and business pressures, sit and relax quietly by themselves. Yet consider this . . . two women walk into a lounge to sit quietly by themselves. Two men walk in and pull out a chair at their table ready to sit down. our january clearance continues 3 every Fashion is sale-priced ITALIAN KNIT SUITS DRESSES and ENSEMBLES Values to 160.00 JANUARY CLEARANCE 49.95 SKI SWEATERS Reg. to 39.95 JANUARY CLEARANCE 9.95 CLEARING ALL LANSEA SWEATERS JANUARY CLEARANCE 9.95 PANT SUITS Reg. 50.00 to 85.00.

PHONE 327-2277 The number of men who would do this are few, but I've heard about the same kind of incident happening frequently enough to make most women hesitant about en tering any establishment where there are a lot of men. There are laws against soliciting, and while a woman is perfectly cap able of telling a man he's not wanted, she shouldn't have to to begin with. Bartenders should have the concern for their customers to ensure that they are not bothered, and the mark of a good estab lishment whether food, drink or recreation is to see that this is done. RIGHTS DEFENDED HALIFAX (CP) - A young man spoke up for women' rights before the joint parliamentary committee on the con stitution. "Women are repressed," said Dennis Patterson, 21, a second-year law stu dent at Dalhousie University, love 35... NEW YORK (CP) - The pants costume has become a classic, such as the trench coat, the shirtwaist dress, the Chanel suit. Pants u its or pants worn with a tunic now are accepted wardrobe items, not just for teen-agers but for women, even those in the upper age bracket. So naturally fashion has to find a news-making substitute. Last fall it was the wide South American cowboy pants, the gaucho look. This spring, it's knickers. "They're big news, combined with body sweaters, cardigans or tailored jackets," says Eleanor Lambert, co-ordinator of the recent spring showings in New York. Not all the designers, however, showed knickers. But the trend-setters did, such as Jacques Tiffeau with his black knickers tucked into high boots and worn with a black-dotted-on-white tunic or his tight navy knickers with a pink jersey tunic topped by a pale pink shell. Several of the designers whose clothes are aimed more towards the 20s and young 30s also showed knickers. Suzy Perette used both soft jersey and black crepe for her styles. Then there was Arme Fogarty with a black-and-white cotton print in matching knickers and jacket. Cuddle-coat hid cotton poolin knickers under a side-buttoned skirt (worn partially unbuttoned, of course) and a crop jacket. WENT TO EXTREMES Two extremes in the knicker look were designer Rasper's citified glen plaid wool jumpsuit with knickers effect, worn with a long shaped blazer and printed crepe shirt and Montreal-born Arnold Scaasi's white pique knickers and tunic worn under . . . baking home' made bread for him. a navy glace chintz great-cape. He also designed a huge plaid cape and orange knickers with black top for Barbra Streisand for her Las Vegas December opening. Amusing were the black knickers with a red bull's eye, the motif repealled on the white top and a white shawl. Also interesting were the laced football-type knickers shown in several collections. Traina Boutique included n chamois style with printed wool cballis 'shirt, to retail at $200. One unexpected aspect of the knickers look is that shoes have suddenly appeared.

One red knicker outfit with a patterned top sported red shoes. Knickers are the shortened term for knickerbockers and were first introduced by the men. Actually they bad worn loose breeches gathered in at the knees some years before the name knickerbocker was used. But knickerbocker doesn't seem to have been applied to the current fashion until about the middle of the 19th century when it referred to the knee breeches worn by boys and sportsmen. Women were first introduced to knickers about 1894 when they decided to play some of the more strenuous sports, such as the new bicycling. Obviouslythe long skirts Were impractical, so they adopted almost a uniform of wide knickerbockers, well-tailored coat, button-up leggings, a mannish shirt and a soft felt hat. But soon knickers weren't considered stylish enough for bicycle riding. Women then took to a divided skirt. Men had taken to knickers in the 1870s, mostly in Harris tweed and worn with a Norfolk jacket. Incidentally, several of the New York designers showed Norfolk jackets with their spring knickers for women. Then, in 1928, men blossomed from knickers into plus fours for golfing, a trend started by the Duke of Windsor, then Prince of Wales. But that fad faded and knickers dropped out of the men's sportswear wardrobe. Now it's the women who are reviving the fashion. When you settle down to a cozy evening with your color TV. And a friend.
