The u ivma Women Doctors Rule Compensation Board REMINISCING Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm MacDonald look through a scrap book which features the various musical activities they have been involved with since coming to lethbridge in 1968. They are in the process of moving to Edmonton during this week. MacDonalds To Further Their Studv In Music By CHRISTINE PUIIL Herald Staff Writer Malcolm MacDonald who has been the string instructor for the Lethbridge Public S c h o o" Board since 1968, is leaving the city later this week to finish his Masters Degree in Music and work with the talent edu- cation program at the Univer- sity of Alberta. Music is the great love of this family. Everything they have been concerned with while in Lethbridge has emphasized the fact. Mr. MacDonald who is the only member of the Canadian String Teachers Association in Southern Alberta has conduct- ed the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute orchestra in 1968, was musical director for the Leth- bridge Musical Theatre's pro- duction of Showboat, director of Oliver, an LCI student produc- tion and director of Sister An- gelica. He has also conducted the Lethbridge Youth Orchestra for the last two years and taught many private pupils. "Although I like to teach mu- sic students, after a full day's work it is hard to come home and face six or seven private pupils, no matter how willing they he said. Mrs. MacDonald who casts herself in the role of "hus- band's cons t a n t assistant" also has a long list of commu- nity musical involvements. Besides singing in numerous assemblies, her singing roles in the Lethbridge Symphony As- sociation's production of Elijah'! in 1968 and Sister Angelica in 1969 were highlights. She was also a guest with the Symphony Association, active in the parents' organization of the youth orchestra; assistant director of Oliver and co-found- er of Ginger Ite; House Nurs- ery School which has a spe- cialized method of teaching mu- sic to pre-school children. The MacDonald children in- clude Kerry, currently studying cello in a summer session at Banff, Allison and Andrew. A new addition to the family will be a two-year-old Eskimo girl, they will adopt next month. What does it matter about her race, said Mr. MacDonald. "A baby is a baby." Although both Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald orbit their entire lives around music, they are saddened by future prospects. "During periods of austerity, culture takes a step b a c In- said Mr. MacDonald. "It is always the physical edu- cation, music and arts pro- grams which are eliminated for cut back first." The biggest thrill to both of tan in Lethbridge was the con- cert of the Lethbridge Youth Orchestra last month. "All the second strings were my own pu- pils, said Mr. MacDonald. "I have watched them grow." They both feel that their greatest musical achievement was the formation in of a summer school of music at Rock Lake, BC. Mr. MacDon- ald is the director and Mrs. MacDonald teaches an intro- duction to singing. Plans of activities in Edmon- ton for the family are quickly being formulated. While Mr. MacDonald is busy at the university, Mrs. Mac- Donald has hopes of singing in Tales of Hoffman produced by the Edmonton Operetta Associ- ation and Kerry will continue his cello studies. Who knows what else" will come along for this musical- minded family. TORONTO (CP) Any male factory worker with an injury or disease had best not be what Women's Liberation members call a male chauvinist if he Svcs in Toronto. Seven out of 10 medical offi- cers in the Ontario workmen's compensation board claims de- partment in Toronto are women. They examine hundreds of workers who apply to the board for compensation for inju- ries suffered on the job. With the majority of doctors at the board being women, any man who believes in.the inferi- ority of definition of a male be taken aback. Three of the seven women doctors are s[ dustrial medic ecialists in in- ic. Dr. Doreen Young is an expert on industrial eye injuries, Dr. Dorothy Bur- ton on industrial diseases and Dr. Margaret Haley on effects of industrial noise. The reasons for these women concentrating o n industrial medicine are varied. "In general practice you're on call virtually all the says Dr. Young. "Your days at the office or the hospital begin around 10 a.m. and last until maybe 9 or 10 at night. At the workmen's compensation board, you begin at and quit at hours." Dr. Young, who is single, says the set hours have freed her to develop her sewing and garden- ing. There are disadvantages to withdrawing from general prac- tice, Dr. Young finds. "I think I miss a GP's patient contact the she said. "But there are A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN Dear Miss Brookfield: I read the letter from the Buf- falo reader who wrote that after and does hurt you.

H I decided to inform his wife, I would be prepared for an initial, angry reaction. But eventually, an old friend is able to distinguish between a friend and a meddling busybody. I think ignorance or pretended ig- of marital infidelity is a great mistake on the part of women. Confrontation is best. Then, the marriage will either collapse or be rebuilt. J. S., Madison, Wis. Dear J. S.: We doubt that many women would agree with this Russian roulette confrontation theory of yours, especially with a 50-50 chance that the marriage may collapse. We also doubt, in the theore-ical conversation you describe with the husband, if the implication that the "affair" was an 'open secret" would have the lesired result. With some men, all it might do is serve as a warning to be more careful in choosing restaurants to dine vith "the other woman."

She does her own housework and cooks the family rneal every night after work. "Set hours are good when you have a family and other duties at she said. It allowed her to combine the roles of mother and doctor. Dr. Burton, the specialist on industrial diseases, is single like Dr. Young. She chose industrial medicine over general practice because of her deep liking for factory people. Also like her colleague Dr. Young, she appreciates the free- dom that accompanies set hours of practice. All three women doctors find their particular variety of medi- cine prerequisite for amicable patient-doctor re- lations. If there are male chauvinists among the doctor's clients, Dr. Haley can defeat their objec- tions. "Women tend to be more she'said. "This might not be too good if you have a lot of work to do, but it means each claim receives full consideration." New York. In five lessons it was possible to learn tire basic kicks and punches including the two-step jump kick and that a Chung kwon is a fist and an E-man the face, a puncturkg elbow at- tack, a knife hand block and the shake hands, over the shoulder flip. All of these can exquisitely incapacitate an at- tacker. ELBOW ATTACK BEST In subways, the elbow attack is handiest for three reasons: 1. it's easy to learn; 2. it re- quires little space; 3. -it's re- latively inconspicuous also recommended for elevators, apartment entrances, bars, buses and breezeways. For face-to-face confronta- tion where there's ample room and you don't mind causing a fuss, flips work best. A jump kick can knock the wind out of an attacker, but requires a cer- tain amount of r e c o m nr e n d ed for streets, parks, hallways, laundromats or restaurants which you don't frequent regularly. The classes, which lasted two hours each, were women out of, 46 students. They ranged from self-conscious white belt beginners who need- ed help donning their pyjama- like uniforms to self-assured black belts whose three-step jump kick could put any would- be lecher out of1 commission. Karate means "empty hand" in Korean. And for this weapon- less sport, self-discipline is the key, physically and psychologi- cally. The master instructor is Richard Chun, a small, soft- spoken Korean gentleman whose karate confreres call him "one of the seven most dangerous hand lighters in the world." CONFIDENCE COMES FAST "In five or six lessons, a woman can learn the basic Chun said in his Mck Korean accent. "To be MDficient, she needs about 40 lessons, however. But with five, a woman can feel more con- fident and1 protect herself bet- ;er, especially if she practises on her own." Chun, whose school is one of the largest in New York City, said 10 to 15 women join his classes each month, most to learn self-defence. Fern Ab'jott of Brooklyn, an 18-year-old freshman at Hunter College, has been taking les- sons for Ihree years. She has a fifth-degree brown belt, one step below a black one, the top category. She cautioned students with only a few lessons not to feel they're invincible. "Just because a girl knows karate doesn't mean she can bounce any 200-pound bruiser. A dash of salt in starch keeps the iron from slicking and also gives linen and fine cottons a glossy, like-new finish.
