Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IEHBR1DGE HERAID Saturday, July 4, 1970- For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor WOMEN may be out of a tight situation if they are to take the word British Leland Motors Canada Limited researchers. It seems a survey they conducted recently shows that girdles and women drivers don't mix. Girdle manufacturers will be unhappy over the news that the pull from elastic garters tends to hoist the woman driver's feet off the pedals. To overcome this, says the report, she pushes against the pull and ends up going faster than she really intends. (Don't try this for an excuse on the next traf- fic policeman.) Also, according to the report, girdles cause women to squirm When you're squirming in your girdle you're not concentrating. When you're not con- centrating you're likely to run through a red light or into the back of some male driver's car whose only problem is his golf game. Fun-loving golf can hardly be compared with a tight girdle. Putting the little ball in the little Hole seems much less of a complicated situation than putting a larger spherical object into a smaller container. The report doesn't indicate who conducted the survey or who squeezed themselves into their girdles to drive for the test. Probably women who wear girdles speed so they can get home faster and get them off. But maybe they just like to drive fast. Anyway, we'd appreciate seeing a report on what makes men speed. They can't all be wearing girdles. Tight belts? Ties? Now about those slim trousers. If you have a wallet in the back pocket and a pipe and lighter in the side pocket, just how com- fortable are they anyway? Can't help but consider the comments of the president of the Canadian Library Association in the light of some local criticism over American imports Bruce Peel told librarians this week in Hamilton that if it hadn't been for importing special- ists and managerial types, Canadian libraries would not have been able to keep up their expansion of recent years It's very true and very valid point we may feel our national or provincial pride ruffled when "outsiders" are hired for top posts but can we really expect that a city the size of Lethbridge has persons trained in every field? and that's an important point in this day of specialization train- ing. 'To keep on promoting people within an organiza- tion simply because they are there is enforcing the Peter Principle every employee tends to rise to the highest level of his incompetence Employers have long considered this type of pro- motion to be a morale booster maybe for the individual but not for the staff It shouldn't matter whether a man comes from Okanagan, B.C. or Okanogan, Wash, if he's the best for the task at hand We weren't all born in Lethbridge, nor Alberta, nor even Canada, but we assume that the people who are here are interested enough in the city to help it grow s, SUIT NEWS FROM LONDON Left: Leisure suit with Man-about-town suit with plain waistcoat and no buttons, belted jacket and brass buttons designed by Norman designed by Norman Hartnell in clothing by Reid and Hartnell in cloth by Reid and Taylor of Scotland.

All Lengths Fashionable, Says Commentator Edmonton Buyers Look To Midi Coats EDMONTON (CP) "Coats out here arc going down to the midi length this fall there's no doubt in my mind at says Nadean Smith, co-owner of an Edmonton high-fashion dress shop. Her statement is borne out by other fashion buyers on the Prairies. Most stores are plan- ning to bring in midi lengths this fall, for young buyers at least. Even for the older, more conservative w o m a n, hem __ FURNITURE AND UPHOLSTERY 522 5th Street South IASTEDO First Woman In U.S. History Martha Grifiiths Seeks Leadership Post He said the midi is definitely in, but that it will not be ac- cepted overnight. For most women, the move to midi would be gradual. Alex Xrolik, a Saskatoon fur- agrees that hem lengths are going down in fur coats as well. He is bringing in lengths to the knee and a few below the knee. Mr. Krolik said he bypassed the maxi coat because he didn't think women were ready it. But he thinks the mini las run its course and the fashion industry is tied of the short look., the fashion experts agree that if a woman wants to wear the midi length, she ought to wear it properly. "It's an elegant said Mrs. Smith. "But you've got to have the total look, including the right hat, boots, maybe a muff." Mrs. Heath agreed: "That's right. It's a look, not just a coat or dress or skirt." A junior fashion buyer in Edmonton said he had not liked the midi when he first saw it being shown. "But recently I saw a show where the designer had really put the look together well. The skirts were split, giving a tan- talizing look at the leg. There were elongated pockets. And Hie waist was back." Coat colors for fall will most- ly be dark, rich jewel colors.
