Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J8 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, July 24, 1971 Midway ivorkers from everywhere By BEVERLY ANN CARLSON STAFF WHITER Labor on the Thomas Shows Inc- midway is drawn each summer from all parts of North America, except for a key staff of 12 persons employed year round. Bernard Thomas, managef of the shows said Friday, about half of his key personnel are married, but the or summer helpers are usually rot. "A lot of these are college kids, and others are those who want to have a job, but not work all the time and still have an opportunity to he said. For those of the employees who do not have their own transportation, they travel in the semi-trailers with the li A problem is encountered by the show when crossing the bor- der between Canada and the United States, Mr. Thomas says. Employees hired in the Unit- ed States are allowed to come into Canada and work the shows, but any Canadians hired are forced to quit their jobs be- cause they are not allowed to and work States. in the United "Therefore we always end up But hardest way to earn living Women in business satisfied TORONTO (CP) "This is the hardest way there is to earn a living but there's a great deal of satisfaction here "You have to work long, long horn's but there are terrific re- wards. it's the greatest busi- ness for women." It's comments like these from women in the business that par- tially explain the ever increas- ing number of females involv- ed in the field of real-estate sales. In what was a man's world prior to the Second World War, women now hold some- where between 25 and 50 per cent of the residential sales jobs in large real-estate com- panies and an even higher per- centage in smaller firms. Margaret Cooke, who became a real-estate agent when the broker who sold her familv their house suggested she come to work fcr him, is now a man- ager on the Belleville, Ont., branch of a large Toronto brok- erage. "I personally think it's the greatest business for she says. FRED VINCENT DAVID SCHANTZ with a labor problem when we go down to Great he said. Henry (Fred) Vincent origin- ally comes from San Francis- co. Five year's ago, he was at the Thomas Show midway when it was tearing down after an exhibition. He asked for a job with the show, was hired to work one of the games booths, and has been with the show ever since, the last two years working on the rides. The show runs on a six month season and travels around the North American continent. In the winter months, Jlr. Vin- cent lives in 'Frisco, and I hike around for the he says. He plans to stay with the carni- val indefinitely. While walking through the Thomas Shows midway one day in May, 1971, David Schantz was approached and asked if ho would like to work for1 the day. Since then he lias travelled with the show working a ride. Originally from St. Joseph, Mo-, Mr. Echantz plans to move to New Mexico at the end of the show's season, but hopes 1 to be able to return to travel I with the carnival next year. Ann Land ers PETALLED LOVILIES Bright living colors surrounded by green leaves and mixed with the texture of clay and wicker, form part of a Japanese floral display by Mrs. George Takayasu from the Lethbridge Shinpa Seizan, School of Japanese Flower Arranging. The display is in the Kaleidarts building of Whoop-Up Days. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My wife is fat not pleasingly plump, but grossly obese. When we were married, she was shapely and considered well built. Too bad I didn't have the good sense to look at her mother during our courting days. I would have known where this girl was heading. I've tried compassion, patience, encouragement, bribery, threats but nothing fazes her. She continues to stuff her face, carries candy in her purse, and has snacks at bedtime. I've'told her she turns me off .sexually. She says. "It's not because I'm fat, it's because you don't love me. My weight is just an excuse." I've begged1 her to see a psychiatrist. She refuses. Am I a heel to ask for a divorce because I can't face the prospect of living the rest of my life with a woman who puts food ahead of everything? She wants to start a family but I don't want to bring a child into the world unless I'm sure I will be around to help raise him. Advise me, in K.C. j DEAR K. C.: You know what you're going to i just want me to tell you to go ahead and do it. Your mar- riage is deader than a doornail. All that remains is the legal j burial. I can't save it but I can tell you something you don't know and may be unwilling to accept. Your wife's weight undoubtedly contributed to the failure of VOID- marriage, but j there were other factors as well such as poor communica- I tion and just plain boredom. j Increasing female students accepted for medicine STANFORD. Calif (API The Stanford University School of Medicine is pushing the re- cruiting of women as students, interns, residents, and faculty members. The new policy replaces ac- tive discouraging of females seeking careers in medicine, a faculty spokesman says, and could learl to a day when wo- men nearly equal male candi- dates. Sixteen of the 77-member en- tering class next fall will be women, double the previous av- erage of seven or eight, spokes- men said. Under the faculty senate's newly adopted policy, the school placed its first faculty recruit- ing advertisement in the July 1 issue of the New England Jour nal of Medicine. The ad invited women to apply for faculty openings in de- partments ranging from anes- thesia to surgery. The advertisement was a first step toward open recruitment for faculty, hitherto conducted privately or by word of mouth, said Dr. Judith Pool. "You'll find women saying it's the same routine every day. You know, dishes, house- work. That's not the way in this business. Nto two houses are the same and no two deals are the same." Elsa Chatfielti, who has been in the real-estate business in Toronto for only two years and whose boss says she will pass the million mark in sales this year, likes the associa- tions with people. "Thds is very much a people business rather than a house business. "The most delightful way oi selling real estate is to sil lown with clients and find oul what sort of lives they lead1 anc what their daily living require- ments are." Miss Chatfield, whose event- ual aim is to have her own real- estate brokerage, emphasizes however, it's not "an easy business." "You have lo work long, long hours but there are terrific re wards in finding tomes f o people." Lucy Hopkins, a former rea estate agent who now has her own business employing nini women and one man specializ ing in residential sales in To- ronto, agrees its' a hard busi ness, "but I've never had any one discriminate against me.' NO EASY BUSINESS "There was never any o n who refused to deal with me because I was a woman, bu it's by no means an easy busi ness. Everything you make yoi deserve." Jane Mickan of Ottawa, win believes she is the only woman in Canada to be an executiv director on a real-estate boarc says she lock the post "on temporary basis, but I got s caught up I just stayed anc stayed." "This is the hardest wa; there is to earn a living, wit longer hours and less security than any other kind of bus. ness. Biit there's a great dea of satisfaction here and if yo put in the hours and do the work it can be satisfyin and economically rewarding." She says what she likes bes about it "is that it's not young person's field." i "If you're selling home yo want someone with experienci Remember, you're meeting pei pie and solving people's prob lems.

Human nature has not been swayed or greatly influenced to the tidier, according to two of the members of the grounds clean-up crew at Whoop-Up Days 1971. "When they see you, Ihey put the garbage in your1 pail, but they don't go looking for a gar- bage pail, that's for said Jane McMullen, a grade 12 stu- dent in LCI when she is not protecting the ecology of the fair grounds. The girls are treated fairly well by the public in their es- timation. "Mostly they just ig- nore you, but from some of the older people you get a few wise said Karen Weitz, a senior student at Winston Chur- chill High School. After receiving the wise cracks the first time, "it was funny" they said. But after the fifth or sixth ime "you sort of feel like goring them with your ulick." One of the funniest things I found was a partial denture plate out in the middle of the farm machinery said Miss McMullen. The girts feel that their job could be made easier if more trash cans were placed in the exhibition area, "but I don't think people would use them Miss McMullen went on to say.
