Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
ft THI UETHMIDGE HIRAIO Thursday, July 12, 1973 Just Jude npHAT big neighbor to the south has done it again. Talk about being over- anxious to claim all in the name of the president and mother's apple pie! The latest American discovery falls un- der the general category of Canada. While browsing through a travel guide, I found out Tex- aco is under the impression and willing to perpetuate the idea, that Canada is practical- ly an annex of the States. After plowing through three-quarters of the guide, devoted to the States, but en- titled 'a touring guide of the United States, Canada and the tourist is intro- duced to our country. An overall map is provided to acquaint the vacationer Canadian geography and at first glance seems to put us back a few years. Strangely enough, there was e dividing line running from coast to coast, cutting Can- ada into north and south sec- tions. To the south, in bold black letters was typed the word INDIANS and across the northern portion was stamp- ed the word ESKIMOS. That made my hair stand on end. And I wondered where I fitted in, considering I'd always thought I was Ca- nadian but hadn't yet noticed feathers sticking out of my head or seen a dog sled in the backyard. A closer look showed the names of the provinces set along the edges of the map, easy to miss, but there. I tied down but was soon ready to ride the patriotic war By JUDE TURIC path, and for a good cause. Next, the guide took sev- eral provinces and gave a brief history of the settle- ment and points of interest. Albertans would be pleased to know that our province was in fact "settled by Texas cow- boys." At this point I was sure Fa- ther Lacombe and Father Thibauk (the first mission- aries) were turning over in their graves, and I was right there cheering them on to a ghostly revolt. The first white, and thoroughly Canadian, man who saw our province in 1754, was probably ready to be re- surrected on hearing that statement as well. He was a member of the Hudson Bay Company, which isn't to my knowledge an American subsidiary. From what our pioneers and our history books say, it's a sure bet Americans did not break the trails in Alber- ta, regardless of what Texaco and Texas cowboys may think. American influence, yes mostly in the form of Mon- tana whiskey traders trying to rip-off the Indians "for their hard-earned furs. American ranchers, well yes to that too but they brought in their herds during the 1880's and settled in coun- try already ranched and by our rugged CA- NADIAN pioneers. It still seems to me, that someone deep down south de- serves a swift kick in the shins for allowing those super- bloopers to make it to the Happy ending for baby MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Citing "unique humanitarian U.S. officials say a four-week- old girl smuggled into the coun- try in a handbag from Spain wDl be allowed to stay. "Oh, my God, I knew this would said Desiree Ben- itez's mother, Daisy Benitez, in a telephone interview from Madrid. "I knew there would be a happy she said. "I trusted the heart and the con- science of the American people to be tend." Si June, Desirie's aunt, Xiomara Aquflera of Miami, tranquflized the child to keep her quiet, placed her in a flight bag and smuggled her into Mi- ami. Desiree was two weeks old at the time. The parents, Cuban exiles like Hiss Aguitera, said they allowed their daughter to be brought to Miami because they wanted to spare her the life of poverty they lived in Spain.

He doesn't go into theatrical shockers and rockers, even in his evening clothes, famous for their flash. Instead, he takes a careful turn into that familiar world of pleated skirts, sweater sets and cardigan jackets. Stone, win- tergreen, camel, Brooks blue and other low-key shades make up the fare. "Today, they want the classic Golden Mle (Open Monday through Fri- day 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sat- urday from 1 to 5 p.m.) Next week: Monday: A light lunch will be served at noon at the centre following the Whoop-Up parade.

Tuesday: Singing a.m. Dancing 2 p.m. Wednesday: Bus leaves for Cham Lake and other points at a.m. Members will be the guests of the Claresholm centre for coffee at a.m. All per- sons going are asked to bring a picnic lunch for Chain Lake. Nanfam will be hosts for after- noon tea. Noteworthy: The centre is now accepting names of senior citizens who would like to have minor repairs done to their homes. Lawns may be cut on a regular basis and those wishing this service are asked to call 327-5333. Please note that deposits for the Yellowstone tour August 27 and the Eastern tour Sept 4 must both be paid as soon as possible. WOULD YOU TAKE ON YOUR OLD VAC IN TRADE? said Brooks hi an inter- view, adding that the world isn't as hungry for new styles as it used to be. Presidential pardon halts production CAGLIARI, Sardinia (Reu- ter) Elena Sainas, 34-year- old mother of 10 children, has finally received a presidential pardon for a minor prison sentence she had dodged by being almost constantly preg- nant. Every time police arrived to take her to prison, they found Mrs. Sainas was preg- nant, or had just had a baby. Now she is expecting her llth. Officials said President Gio- vanni Leone, who has re- ceived several petitions from Mrs. Sainas, finally decided last week to grant clemency and stop the forced produc- tion. Under Italian law, women who are expecting or recover- ing from birth cannot serve minor sentences. Mrs. Sainas has claimed the privilege ever since she was sentenced to two months for theft in 1969 when she was expecting her eighth son. One of his best day looks was a 16-gore camel ly fitted at the waist. He fell in love with sunburst pleats and parasol capelet tops for and short However, the applause came for two less fluttery styles: a long champagne crepe dress and a fox-bordered evening suit. These looked like Brooks at bis best. DESIGNED TO CATCH EYE He even used bis well-known paillettes with caution, sprink- ling them with a light hand on several dignified and pretty mango chiffons. At the Pierre Cardin New York collection, the evening clothes were cut with broad, sweeping lines, guaranteed to grab the eye. Some were abpve-the-ankle, gathered black chiffon dress and scarf pinned at the ear with a large clump of cherries. Others might be called tow-backed dress with red sequioned halter. A couple were acutely reveal- a triangle of satin on top, pinned with a flower. No back. No sides. The hatter jumper in suede was the lead item for day along with the waist length jacket and some sturdy-looking coats. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Monkeys need lots of care "We must be over a kindergarten of fish.1 By BERNIE GOEDHART EDMONTON (CP) Judy Glionna joined the local chap- ter of the Simian Society of America two years ago to be in touch with people who have and like monkeys. Today she u its president, owns a woolly monkey named TLnuny, and admits that when sbs brought him home a year ago she didn't know what she was getting into. "It's like having a she said, watching Thorny, in diapers, leap from chair to chesterfield to photographer and back again in his ment at seeing visitors. Mrs. Glionna is unabashedly enthusiastic about her pet. But she maintains a level out- look on the amount of work involved in keeping a monkey and the fact that it is an ani- wild one at not a human being. There are some people who lose sight of the fact that the monkey is an animal because of its human-like behavior and they treat their pet as if it is a child, she said. "But we're not all like that. I don't think it takes the place of a child." UNSUITABLE AS PET Across the city, Gary Bea- ver offers a less enthusiastic view of monkeys as pets. Mr. Beaver is past presi- dent and one of the co-found- ers of the Simian Society's Edmonton chapter, the only Canadian chapter. He, too, said he had "always been fas- cinated by monkeys." Until about five years ago, Mr. Beaver owned two woolly monkeys, a male and a fe- male. He gave them to the Storyland Valley zoo after the mate, who was growing in- creasingly aggressive, twice bit his wife. Mr. Beaver remains in- volved with the Simian Soci- ety because be cares about monkeys aid the society is dedicated to their well-being. But he is against the impor- tation of monkeys, says he will never buy another one and that he will never advise anyone to adopt a monkey as pet. "The monkey is not an ideal be said. "People tend to forget they're animals. They're not tame by any stretch of the imagination. "There have been cases on record of monkeys turning on their owners for no apparent reason. They're very sensi- tive, and could harbor resent- ment." TEMPERAMENT COUNTS Mrs. Glionna agrees that the threat of aggressiveness in a monkey should be consi- dered. But she doesn't antici- pate problems with Tnnmy. "It depends oh toe mon- key's temperament she said. "And Timmy is neutered. I was worried over problems which may arise when he's mature. Every vet I contacted said neutering him should lessen his aggressiveness." Timmy, who is a little more than a year oW, weighs about eight pounds and is about 20 inches tall. When he matures, in about three years, he should be about 27 inches tall and weigh 25 to 30 pounds, said Mrs. Glionna. Timmy made good use of his prehensile tail during the interview. Streaking past his owner in an attempt to escape a reprimand after being a lit- tle too playful was caught in flight by Mrs. Glionna. Before she could walk away with him, however, Timmy wrapped the end of his tail around a portable television stand, dragging it and the tel- evision with him. EXCITED BY VISITORS "Monkeys aren't meant to be kept quiet, as you can said Mrs. Glionna. "He wouldn't be this excited an the time you stay here. He gets excited when people first a child."

He is also learning to brush his teeth, al- though he has to be reminded to hold the toothbrush and not just eat the toothpaste off it. He is affectionate, makes crying-like noises when he feels he's being unjustly treated, and eats the same basic diet as human beings. And he is a clean clean as you keep him." The Simian Society tries to find good homes for monkeys. The society also attempts to provide the information which will enable owners to care for them. The society, which in Ed- monton has about 25 mem- bers, is against the importa- tion of monkeys, said Mr. Beaver, but dedicates itself to ensuring that the monkeys which have been imported and are in captivity will well-treated. Executive named for Quota Club During a recent installation of officers for the Quota Club of Lethbridge, Mrs. Joy L. Pin- ney was named president. JOYPINNEY i president Women hampered by attitudes PTTAWA (CP) Deeply- imbedded attitudes in society are the hardest problems for women to overcome in trying to improve their role, Labor Minister John Munro said here. Mr. Munro, minister respon- ble for the status of women, told the first Ottawa meeting of the Advisory Council on the Status of Women that be is looking for recommendations on action that could improve the position of women in socie- ty. "For too, long and in too many cases women'have ed a supportive role to men, both at borne and in the labor market, regardless of their in- terests and Mr. Munro said. People concerned with rais- ing the status of women want- ed a society in which everyone, men and women, can live the life they choose, regardless of their sex. A large part of society still expects every woman to raise a family and work at home he said, and this restricts oppor- tunities for women. 'The 28 member council was set up earlier tins year to ad- vise the government of actions to take on behalf of women. It reports to Mr. Munro but has the right to mate its reports public. Members serving on the ex- ecutive include Miss Agnes Short, first vice president; Mrs. Edith Lepard, second vice-president, Miss Ailsa Chal- mers, secretary; Mrs. Edith Whitfield, corresponding secre- tary and Mrs. Ruth Williams, treasurer. Named to the board of direc- tors for a two-year term were Miss Lucy Mime and Mrs. Mar- jorie- Austin. Elected to serve for a one-year term were Mrs. Marion Peszat and Mrs. Elea- nor Holroyd. The local organization pro- vides service to girls, including a three high school scholar- ship awarded for further'edu- cation, and maintaining a room at the YWCA residence. Members of the Quota Club work in conjunction with the Meals on Wheels organization in supplying meals to senior citizens, as well as organizing entertainment afternoons for se- men- citizens in homes and lodges. All fund raising projects are carried out for the purpose of donating to worthy community projects. Internationally, the Quota Club has 390 member organi- zations through o u t Canada, Australia, Mexico and the Uni- ted States. Membership is by invitation only and the club was founded in 1919.
