Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Work conditions on status agenda OTTAWA (CP) Members of the government advisory council on the status of women ended their first meeting this week confident they will get better conditions for women. Dr. Katie Cooke, S4, chairman of the 28-member council, told a press conference the group in- tends to concentrate on amend- Ursuline nuns discuss future CHATHAM, Out.

A bill brought before the Commons last year would have prohibited discrimination on grounds of age, sex, and ma- rital status, but died when the House dissolved for the Oct. 30 election. The council will also keep an eye on draft-stage amendments to the Public Service Super- annuation Act concerning women. Members want to en- sure that women get a fair shake in insurance and pension plans, Dr. Cooke said. Other immediate priorities in- cluded the establishment of a human rights committee, in- clusion of housewives in the Canada pension plan am changes in the divorce act. NOT ENOUGH YET Members also expressed con- cern that not enough women are being appointed to senior positions on government boards, commissions and Crown corpo- rations. They suggested that the next Governor-General be a woman. Most of the two-day meeting was directed toward forming these aims, but Dr. Cooke said the council, formed May 31, hopes to get down to actual pro- posals at the next meeting in September. Such proposals would deal with better child care and fam- ily planning services. Most members seemed satis- fied with the first session. Even Joan Wallace of Van- couver, who had threatened to resign if she thought the .council was a waste of time, said she was "pleasantly surprised."

Wraparound sunglasses ruin vision CHICAGO (AP) The popu- lar summer fashion of tinted and "wraparound" sunglasses may actually be harmful to the eyes, a number of eye special- ists say.

Please help me. I hid a fairly good riage until our adopted daughter was five years old. I knew then that she had ta- ken over my husband and I was out of the picture. I told my husband how I felt but he laughed and said I was im- agining things. When she was ten she an- nounced she was going to many a man just like Daddy. From that time on my life has been an unbear- able helL I can't trust the two of them in the same room alone. At the dinner table she takes off her shoes and runs her feet up and down her fa- ther's pant's leg. When they watch TV together they hold hands.

HOUSf LOCATED AT AVI., COAIDA1X DEAR ANN LANDERS: You have printed many formative letters on homo- sexuality and I congratulate you for handling the subject so skflfully. What I have to say will be, hopefully, an added I am 8 retired construction engineer who has seen his 70th birthday. I fathered a family of five and always considered myself a normal person. I now have grand- children whom I enjoy immensely. However, one ex-- perience in my life has al- ways baffled me. In 1 was sent to a re- mote area for technical work on a war contract There were 00 women in or near our camp, just men, which in- cluded one very attractive young fellow who was assign- ed to me as an assistant Af- ter a few weeks of working with the lad I was horrified to find myself physically at- tracted to Mm. He knew noth- ing about it since I managed to keep my inclinations con- cealed. 1 ssid I was "horri- but more than that, I was frightened, angry and disgusted with myself. Noth- ing like that had ever hap- pened to roe before. After a short time I requested a transfer back to the home of- fice on the grounds of health. Never again did such ideas occur to me. This incident has raised DEAR ANN LANDERS. Sir months ago three of my husband's business associates were involved in a financial mess. There were overtones of gra f t, bribery, extortion, income tax evasion, every- thing that goes into a very smeUy court case. My hus- band's picture appeared in tie paper, along with the rest. Although be was complete- ly vindicated of aT charges, people stifl remember it and it's iMMnfrg that they some questions in my mind that have never been re- solved. Does this sort of thing happen to others? Just how wide and deep is the wan that divides homosexuals from heterosexuals? Would you care to comment? I en- joy your column and feel sure you could add to my en- lightenment because when you don't know the answer you always know someone who does. Still Puzzled In Davenport DEAR D: There are very few few things in life that are 100 per cent this goes for sexuality. It is en- tirely normal for a male or a female to have flashes of "in- terest" in a member of the same sex. Your experience is an ex- cellent example of what goes on behind prison walls. When females are unavailable, males sometimes become substitutes. Many ex-convicts have reported that they tam- ed to fellow prisoners for sex- ual gratification while in prison, but after they were released they never again had the slightest interest in a homosexual relationship. Many people who read this will deny vehemently that it is true of them. This brings to mind Robert Louis Steven- son's words, "AH of us have feelings that would shame ben." don't have the facts straight. Two of the women I play cards with bring up the in- cident regularly and I find it very upsetting. Will you please supply me with some sample sentences to shut them up? Thank you Guilty By Association DEAR S. G.: You don't need sample sentences. You need new friends. People who dig up o'd bones of this kind are not well-intentioned.

"There is no single best type' of sunglasses, Dr. Jay Enoch research professor of ophthal- mology at Washington Univer- sity medical school in St. Louis said in a telephone interview. But there are certain things to avoid, he added, noting for example that blue-tinted lenses cut out red and can create a problem for the wearer. A red warning flag, for example, might not catch the eye. Dr. Manuel L. StiUerman, a Chicago ophthalmologist, cau- tions against the fashionable "wraparound" sunglasses as wen as "ridiculous pastel pinks end purples and blues."

These cause eye irritation. 80th birthday An open house in honor of Mrs. Maria Lizzi on her 80th birthday will be held Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the home of her daugh- ter Mrs. Elda Jorgensen, 1106 15 St. N.

Sunglasses in "soothing or restful" tints are the ones to buy, Stfflerman said. He has found certain shades of green and gray particularly satisfac- tory. Dr. Gerald Fonda, a Short Bills, N.J. ophthalmologist, rec- ommends that sunglasses be bought from an one teamed in fitting rather than from a department or drugstore. While sunglasses have no therapeutic effect, they may have an unexpected benefit, says Dr. Frerteriek Jung of the American Medical Association's health education department They prevent wrinkles be- cause people who wear them don't have to squint, he sail Telecopier in education EDMONTON (CP) Eleven- year-old Dennis Steppke, con- fined to Ms home by osteomyeli- tis, is taking classes by teleco- pier.
