Kerber Photo 1 Urned dOWn piper Canadian aid to Vietnam civilians comes up with band ivma Traditional wedding vows changed to favor new rites NEW YORK (AP) Parts ol :he traditional marriage ritual terming the husband "head of Ihe wife" and directing her lo be submissive to him no longer are required in B new Lutheran marriage service being used in the United States. Nor does the bride's father "give" her away, implying she lacks the independence of the bridegroom. The custom de- rived from ancient times when daughters were regarded as possessions and were turned over to the bridegroom for a price. "We feel that they should be regarded as equal partners in the says Hev. Eu- gene L. Brand, head of an in- ter-Lutheran commission o n worship which drew up the new service. It omits the usual bridal ORILLIA. Ont. (CP) The Twin Lakes Pipe Band should have known better.

"We would Include the word "ladies" in the title, but our male assistants might she says with a smile. The initial rebuff has turned into a happy situation for Mrs. Cripps as her band has been in- vited to perform at the Cana- dian National Exhibition this summer side by side with the Twin Lakes band.

Editor TORONTO CP) Since 1966, about 19.000 knitted and sewn items of clothes for children have gone from Ontario to Viet- nam by way of the Voice of Women and the children's com- mittee of the Canadian Aid for Vietnam Civilians. Lil Greene, convener oi knit- ting for the Ontario VoW says the total represents about one- third of all the things made by volunteers in Canada. They in- clude bootees, cot blankets, bal- aclavas, some sewn shirts and trousers. "We had a pack-In at my house in May and sent 900 items." The children's clothing is combined with medical sup- plies, first-aid compresses, hos- pital eye-shields and powdered milk and sent on a Soviet ship to Vietnam. The CAVC is a group of Cana- dians, whose chairman is Dr. A. M. Inglis. a Vancouver or- thopedic surgeon. A release from the VoW says CAVC ship- ments have been conveyed to Vietnam free ol charge since 1966, courtesy of the Soviet em- bassy in Ottawa and the Red Cross in Vladivostok. Mrs. Greene says supplies now are going to children in Laos and it is hoped Cambodia can be included in the next con- signment. DONE BY VOLUNTEERS All of the work is done by vol- unteers, not all of them VoW members, and she says more would be welcome. Most of the knitters and sew- ers supply their own material. They are asked to work from patterns based on what Is worn by Indochinese children. Mrs. Greene says knitted items must be in dark colors for camou- flage, and in wool because syn- thetics are not warm enough. "We also want to involve women who might not go on a picket line. "We want them to do some- thing." Mrs. Greene says they do wel- come money. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes ''Your 34-22-34 has pone where my hair went."

Nor does Ihe minister pronounce Ihera man and wife as is customary. Instead, they themselves de- clare that compact. In principle, this always has been the case, with the minister being only the officiating wit- ness to it, even though he for- mally pronounced them wed. Basically, however, il is their own "pledge of faithfulness" to each other that unites them, Dr. Brand noted. Matching the procedure with the principle, the key part of the new service reads: Minister: "If it is your inten- tion to share with each other your laughter and tears and all that the years will bring, by your promises, bind yourselves now to each other as husband and wife." The couple, In turn: 'I Uka you, to be my wife or husband tvom this day forward, to join with you and share all that is to come and, with the help of God, I promise to faithful to you as He gives us life together." The minister: and by their promises before God, and in the presence of this congregation, have made them- selves husband and wife. Blessed be the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever." The new ritual, published June 14 and already authorized for trial use in the par- ishes of the Lutheran Church in America, allows several op- tional phrasings. With limits, it also permits the couple to write their own vows. The homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN Prices of cotton fabrics and garments may go up, because .here has been an increase In raw cotton due to worldwide shortages. Stretch-wovens for fall fab- rics, especially for men's pants. A fact sheet on stretch-wovens will be out soon. Dylon dye available from some department stores, craft shops and drugstores. Cold dyes are for natural fibres, resulting in tnie bright colors. Excellent fastness to light and washing. multipurpose dyes natural and most synthetic fibres. Forty-seven colors. Use in hot water, preferably simmer for reater density of color. Liquid dyes Liquid version of the multipurpose, 15 colors. Polyesters can be dyed. Rec- ommend triple strength multi- purpose or liquid dye in dark shades to produce pastel colors. Polyester thread has a nasty habit of wearing out the ten- sion discs on sewing machines, and Toughening the hole In the .hroatplates. Machine repair- men often go into suit-fits when a homemaker brings in a ma- chine for tension repair. Since Mlyester thread Is very strong it doesn't break readily, and its greater strength causes wear- ing. F i b r e s of the thread get fflto the tension disc and "gum." it up. The repairmen say that with he new three motion stretch stitches, you get sufficient stretch with cotton thread. How- ever, Mrs. Marilyn Hcmsing, Extension Clothing Specialist, feels that the strong polyester, nylon or acrylic yarns of the fabric will easily wear out the weak cotton thread. That's the choice we must make. Canada is now known as "the new fashion frontier." Ameri- can buyers arc trooping across the border to place significant- ly large orders with garment manufacturers. The federal government's Fashion-Canada awards have done much to promote Cana- dian quality and design at home and abroad. Canadian fashion exports rose from million in 1964 lo million by 1970, with the U.S. taking 70 per cent of this. European buyers are asking 'Where have you been hid- Two Canadian fashion houses showed their designs in Paris and were excited by the general acceptance. The indus- try feels Canadian designed and made garments can stand with the best in the world. On your next shopping spree, look carefully at the labels. You might be surprised to see so many Canadian made gar- ments, well designed well made, and for a medium price Textile Labelling Laws By December 13, 1972 all clothing, home furnishings, yardgoods, wigs and sporting goods (sleeping bags, tents, etc.) will be clearly labelled. Under the Textile Labeling Act, the bilingual labels will have to include: 1. generic name of each fibre present in amount of five per cent or more. 2. the percentage content of fibre. 3. the name and postal dress of the "dealer" may be by a code number, which has been registered with the gov- ernment. Imported Items are Included as well. Care labelling Is voluntary, but it is hoped that manufac- turers will include this too.

History shows women go farth- er faster .Then they are part of established groups, says Mi- chelline Dumont Johnson, history professor at the Uni- versity of Sherbrooke. Women's rights under the French re- gime in Quebec were officially limited but in practice women assumed many of the responsi- bilities of men and conducted social welfare services through the church. Women's groups today should ba superseded by women joining mixed groups for direct action such as elec- tion to public office, she says. BINGO MOOSE HALL 1234 3rd AVENUE NORTH WEDNESDAY ol P.M.
