Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, January 23, 1975 THE LETHBRIRGE HERALD 21 Feminist groups not happy with 'standardpress coverage" Women seeking alternate news service There's CP, AP and Reuters. And don't forget WP women's press, an alter- nate news service committed to covering issues of impor- tance to women, from a woman's point of view. Sound like an impossible dream? An idealistic feminist 'plot'? Not according to representatives from women's newsletters and feminist publishing firms meeting in Thunder Bay in March to discuss the feasibili- ty of a women's news collec- tive. Rita Moir of Lethbridge, former editor of The Meliorist, the University of Lethbridge student news- paper, was one of the par- ticipants at a Saskatoon conference dealing with the need for alternate coverage of women's news and increased communication between women's groups across Canada. Ms. Moir says discontent- ment with "standard press coverage" of women's rights issues was one of the underly- ing reasons for the preliminary conference, which was attended by representatives from 15-20 publications, including Ed- monton's Branching Out and Source and Lethbridge's Up, a Women's Place publication. "A lot of the impetus for the conference came from Otto Lang's interference in the funding of the Saskatoon women's centre, which was not given much media coverage outside of Saskatchewan, even though it had implications for women's groups all across says Ms. Moir. "We need a women's media network, so we will have united respon- sibility for coverage." Ms. Moir said many women's groups are not happy with either the interpretation or the coverage of women's news by major media outlets or the Canadian Press, a news gathering co operative to which most Canadian daily newspapers belong and contribute. Dear Ann Landers: I read the letter sent in by "Relieved" and it blew my mind. If she considers her husband a sex maniac, she should have mine. "Relieved" complains about three times a week. What would she do if he demanded sex three times a day and more on weekends? I work in Fred's business and he is one of those husbands who insists on having lunch at home every day. We have a teenager in the house and I can't hide the boy in a closet. It's all very em- barrassing. Fred is after me morning, noon and night. Is there a solution to this problem? Tired Dear Tired: I'm surprised you had enough strength to pick up a pen and write to me. Your husband should see a doctor and get some drugs to tame his libido. Something in his system is working over- time- No woman should be ex- pected to satisfy such a voracious sexual appetite. "Ready Freddy" needs professional help and you deserve a rest, dear. Dear Ann Landers: My aunt 'took a course in palmistry (it cost her She became fascinated when a woman read her palm and told her several things about her past that were true. Aunt Belle is especially in- terested in lifelines. She was told by the palmist that her lifeline is unusually long and that she will probably live to be at least 100. Will you please tell me if anyone has ever done any scientific research on this? Or is it all phony baloney? Ink-Quizzitive Dear Ink: The only study I am aware of was done by two professors at the University of Washington in Seattle. Drs. M. E. Wilson and L. E. Mather actually measured the lifelines of 51 cadavers. They used computers to calculate the variables, such as body size. The research of these physicians revealed that there is no connection whatever between longevity and the length of a person's lifeline. Several of their oldest "sub- jects" had the shortest lifelines. (Sorry about Aunt Belle's Dear Ann Landers: On oc- casion you print "rules" for parents on How To Break Up A Marriage. I have an addition to your list which is guaranteed to work if all else should fail. It is this: If there are grandchildren, be sure to favor one over the others. This will create such havoc between the parents that they will be in a continual state of turmoil and a reasonably good marriage can be knocked to pieces. Sign me Seen It Happen Dear Seen: I'll take your word for it. Thanks for writing. A no-nonsense approach to how to deal with life's most difficult and most rewarding arrangement.

"What they choose to cover as well as how they cover is decided from a male oriented point of view in many instances, says Ms. Moir. "And traditional newspapers are also under pressure from advertising and government to avoid certain types of she adds. Participants at the Saska- toon meeting agreed discuss- ing unsatisfactory aspects of conventional coverage was a waste of time: their concern was to establish an alter- native. Tentatively called the Feminist News Service, the organization is envisioned as a membership-supported co- operative with all participants supplying news to a central of- fice which would compile it and send items to members in regular weekly mailings. If there was data on an im- mediate issue, telex services might be utilized. Ms. Moir said the central of- fice, or information terminal, for the women's news service may initially be in Waterloo, Ont. "Everyone was adamant that the co operative be membership supported, not dependent on government says Ms. Moir, "because the grant system is too uncertain, and a matter of political expediency." Delegates said grants would allow the government control of activities and, if the grant were discontinued, the service would likely disintegrate. She said the service might work on a sliding fee scale where the bigger publications with the larger budgets would pay higher membership fees than a struggling newsletter. "We believe that since the women's groups in the news collective would have a moral commitment to better com- munication and awareness of women's issues, there will be ho problem generating said Ms. Moir. "Sure we'll suffer some set- she adds, "but it's inevitable that alternate news services will develop, THE BETTER HALF although it may be a long slow process. She said eventually the feminist news service could exchange information with other "alternate" news ser- vices, such as Canadian University Press, or labor and education services which may develop.
