Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, July 30, 1970 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 13 City Dog Pound Upholds Service By CHRISTINE PUIIL Herald Staff Writer "House of little is the name currently given to the open paddock beside the Lethbridge dog pound, by its keeper, Glenn Anderson of Lethbridge. The reason being that right now all 10 or so dogs en- closed in the open area are fe- males, many of which are in heat, said Mr. Anderson. He first took over operation of the animal shelter three months ago and says that the number of dogs held, runs anywhere from seven to 18 each day. In the three-month period, he has purchased 13 cases of dog food and 350 pounds of pellets. That's a lot of hungry dogs. He said the only hazard in- Apples Praised KELOWNA, B.C. (CP) A Canadian government r e p r e- sentatiye in New Zealand has reported to fruit growers in the Okanagan that British Columbia apples arc credited with making e greater impact on New Zea- landers than any other product from Canada in recent years. He was reporting on a pre- Christmas shipment of bushel-boxes of apples by B.C. Tree Fruits Ltd., the gfbwers' co-operative. NO INDECENT DRESS BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) King Faisal of Saudi Arabia has banned the miniskirt and other "indecent dress" for women such as shorts and trousers, the Saudi Arabian press reports. PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE ElKS i LODGE ROOM (Upsfmrl) EVERY THUR5.- 8 p.m. volved in running the shelter is that quite often he becomes very attached to certain animals and hates to see them go. The business hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 to 9.p.m. each day. That is more than was suggested for operation plans. Besides this, Mr. Anderson spends approximately eight hours at intervals throughout the day, patrolling for dogs running at large in the city. This lime does not even in- clude answering complaint calls on such things as dogs in gardens or bitches in heat. Jack Taal of Lethbridge is also employed at the pound, so someone is in the building at all times during business hours. Believe it or not, Mr. An- derson catches all his ani- mals by hand and has scars to prove it. But he reports a few notorious "tramps" (re- ferring to dogs) who can never be captured. He said that if people only be sure and buy tiieir dogs license tags, it would be so much easier for him to lo- cate the owner of dogs im- pounded. A perfect example is a fine specimen of a boxer which was picked up recently. There is no tag on this dog and consequently the owners are minus one very fine dog. The problem of dogs being stolen from the enclosure has virtually been eliminated by a fibreglass roofing over the outdoor cages and chaining around the bottom of the gates. Mr. Anderson thinks the lo- cation is "quite a nice dog kennel" but has no adequate provision for eats. "The city is over-run with cats he said. The entire establishment is washed every day, he said, while apologizing for tar on the entrance floor1. "They just oiled tha front street. That is the only reason it is he explained.

Toiie.rits, Main Floor EATON'S times the emotional ones are due to this new phase in a woman's she can no longer have children, coupled with (foolish) fears about the loss of her attractiveness. Helen Deutsch, the noted psy- choanalyst, says that women who have devoted their lives to children and motherhood often have a difficult time at meno- pause. In your particular case, a husband whose work keeps him out-of-town a lot, plus bore- dom, may contribute to the fa- tigue and "blues" of the nieno- pausal period. But if lowered levels of estrogen, due the the meno- pause, is contributing to your woes, your doctor can help you. Bernice L. Neugarten, profes- sor at the University of Chi- cago, in an article entitled: "A New Look writes that at replacement of estrogen (usually by oral ad- ministration) is not new in the field of medicine." It has long been used for the treatment of menopausal symptoms and is now being administered to post- menopausal women to prevent osteoporosis (brittle In- cidentally, when you see your doctor, also ask about a diet.

Plans To Study As Lawyer Feet Serve As Hands For Student MARGAREE, N.S. (CP) Eighteen-year-old Mary Mac- Lcnnan waived the customary congratulatory handshake at her graduation this year when she received a Grade 12 di- ploma and university scholar- ship with her feet. But it was not unusual. Mary has been doing many things with her feet since she was a baby, because she was born without 'arms. In early childhood "she in- sisted on having her feet free just as other babies want their arms said her mother, Mrs. Angus" Mac- Lennan. "So we let her have her way." Mary is the oldest of the seven MacLennan children of nearby Chimney Corner, a com- munity on Cape Breton's west coast. She grew up doing most of the things normal babies do, using her feet to perform skills others learn to do with their hands. As a baby, she used her feet to locate nursing bottle, grasp the nipple between her toes and draw the bottle to her mouth, holding it in position with her feet. As she grew older, her feet were used for many practical purposes. SHE ALSO COOKS When she began school, her toes held utensils for drawing. writing and sewing. She was provided with a low table to work on instead of a desk and in high school a special desk was designed for her. In school, she wore shoes which could easily be removed and amazed her teachers with the dexterous use of her toes. Mary's Grade 1 average of just under 8 confirmed she is a good student, but she has never confined herself to acade- mic subjects. She studied home economics in junior high school and be- came quite at home in the kitchen. A good cook who can do many kinds of baking, she is prevented, from using dough be- cause it requires kneading. As a seamstress, she lays out her own patterns and does the sewing, but usually lets her mother do the cutting. Mary has a flair for art and was often chief decorator for her classroom at Christmas and other special occasions. She also designed the graduation pro- grams for her Grade 11 class in 1969.

Women To Start Politics At Local Council Level TORONTO (CP) Women in terested in federa politics should get their start a the local council level, says Ada Pritchard. Mrs. Pritchard, 68, who ha been a member of tie Ontari legislature since 1963, recently announced that she won't run again. Before entering provincia politics, she made a name fo herself as an alderman and con troller on the Hamilton cit council. She had no trouble getting the Tory nomination for her riding although she admits that get ting a nomination is often a wo- man's biggest hurdle in proyin cial or federal politics. "Even when they get a ridin, they don't get a riding that' very easy to Mrs. Frit chard said. Recalling her first provincia election, she said there were 1 women other she was th only one elected. :1It's a fact of life" that politl cal parties tend not to nominati women and when they do it's in the ridings they can't win o that the men don't want, sh says. She leels that women mus work for themselves, stick to- gether and go the municipa route. Women should speak on policy matters where they predom: nate in numbers at riding asso- ciations. They should mak themselves heard on .laws tha particularly affect women Mrs. Pritcbard said. In 1963, Mrs. Pritchard be- came the first woman ever to sit on the government side o the House and only the third woman MPP in Ontario history She was chairman of three legislative committees: Educa Are You Prepared If Diarrhea Strikes?

After seven years, mrs. Prit- chard expresses some dissatis- faction with her role in politics. "We just have to sit there all day and listen to useless from the Opposition and we sel- dom get a chance to say any- thing in reply. I'm sick of it. I don't feel that as backbenchers we're achieving anything." On various occasions she has supported the Opposition, but Opposition proposals are usual- ly talked out, she said. In her career, she did manage to have repealed the traditional legislative rule that women must wear hate. The seat of Ontario legislation is near her home, so Mrs. Prit- chard managed to combine her career with her family. She and her husband, Charles, c e 1 e- brated their golden wedding an- niversary last year. Although she is retiring from active politics, Mrs. Pritchard says she intends to help other women further their political careers.
