Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July 26, 1971 THE UETHBRIDGE HERAID 13 J-amily Wandering eyes checked on film BURLINGTON, Ont.-Sports- car drivers with a roving eye, who glance at pretty girls on the sidewalk and are distracted by a pair' of shapely legs, are about to be 'caught' by an elec- tronic spy. Scientists in Britain want to discover just how much time an MG driver spends looking at the road ahead. So they have devised a system that will put all this and a lot more on film. Throughout this summer, ac- cording to the Public Service Division of British Leyland Mo- tors Canada Limited, the peo- ple who make MG, Triumph and Jaguar sportscars, scien- tists at the British Government- controlled Road Research Lab- oratory at Crowthorne in Berkshire will be fitting vol- unteer drivers with a special helmet. Each time they look at a girl's legs it will be recorded. The specially equipped hel- met films the road ahead and superimposes on the film the movement of a light spot focus- ed on the pupils of the driver's eyes. So when the film is developed it shows what objects distract- ed his gaze and how long they held his attention. And, says British Leyland, men drivers are mostly distracted by pretty girls, shapely legs and vivac- ious models on advertising bill- boards. driving chiefs if it is felt that there are too many "sidewalk distractions." Women retire at mens age court says CHICAGO (AP) A wo- man cannot be forced to re- tire at an earlier age than a man, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled. The unanimous decision Wednesday by a three-judge court held that a retirement plan based on sex violates the 1964 Civil Eights Act and is "tantamount to dis- charge." The court ruled in the case of Ann Bartmess who sued a South Bend, Ind., brewery, Drewrys Limited U.S.A., and Local 275, International Union of United Brewery and Distil- lery Workers of America which negotiated a contract that held the retirement age for women at 62 and that for men at 65.

"That women wear skirts and men trousers has as much to do with sexuality as pink and blue she says. To support her point Dr. Stan- nard, a former teacher of Eng- lish at the University of Cali- fornia at Berkeley now devot- ing full time to writing and re- search, takes a fascinating look back into history. Her findings may give quite a turn not only to the "liberated ladies" but to the males who feel they were chosen by nature to wear the pants. Stuff and nonsense, gentle- men. Dr. Stannard has come up with some facts that could jar the hard hats off the heads of construction workers and send Betty Friedan' running to the nearest dress shop to buy a short skirt as a badge of equal rights. For it wasn't until the 18th century that men began to give up wearing skirts. Medieval men fought in long tunics, Scots in Wits, Greeks in short, full skirts. Turks wore caftans, Greeks chitons, Rom- ans togas, Japanese kimonos Malaysians sarongs. When the German barbarians invaded Italy, they were wear- ing trousers and for a shor time only they influenced male dress.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our problem is one faced by many parents these days. Can you help us? Briefly: College daughter bright, attractive, well ad- justed. Good relationship with both parents. We were told yes- terday that she is moving into an apartment with a boyfriend she has known for four monUis. She says they are not ready for marriage and they don't want to sneak around. We love our daughter, but we are strongly opposed to this life style. We are also unhappy that she would behave so irre- sponsibly and make things so difficult for those who love her. The problems are: Our younger children (three high schoolers) are torn between loyalty to their sister and their parents. (2 The grandparents are appalled and bewildered by what they consider gross immorality. How should we handle this? Alameda DEAR ALAMEDA: Keep the lines of communication open. You don't have to visit your daughter and her boyfriend in their pad, but do let her know that they are welcome in your home. High school kids are old enough to decide where they want to go. If trey want to visit their sister, don't prohibit it. It goes without saying that you should not be contributing financially to a setup which you consider unacceptable. A girl who opts for a life style which her parents find deplorable should not expect them to finance it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I considered myself a nice per- son thoughtful and generous until a few months ago. A certain woman who works in our office is bringing out some unattractive qualities in me that I am ashamed of. Every day on my way to work I buy the paper that prints your column. I take it home in the evening for the family to read. This co-worker of mine brags that she only reads two things Ann Landers and the horoscope. If this is all that dumbbell cares about, wouldn't you say it should be worth 10 cents? I start to do a slow burn even' morning about a.m. because I know she's going to ask, "May I read your Should I tell her "No" or should I deprive myself and my family of the paper in order to slop her mooching? The Cringer DEAR CRINGE: Why bite off your nose to spite your face? Since this woman is obviously getting to you, tell her, "Yes. I DO mind. You are trying to get something for nothing and I resent it." Offer to let her read your paper in exchange for a dime which she can drop into an envelope marked "Charity." At the end of every month send the contents to your local chap- ter for Retarded Children. Is alcoholism a disease? How can the alcoholic be treated? Is there a cure?
