Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Just Jude By JUDE TURIC LONG Mac invited me to make a return visit to her old home town of Beltevue. I declined, knowing full well if I accepted all hell would eventually break loose, that being a lesson well learned through past experience. Although Mac is a nice pel-son, she somehow reverts into her cliildhood role of local problem-cliild whenever she's near home base. To this day, many of her vic'ims in the vicinity of Belle- vue, can testify to fact. Besides, she also has a tendency to become passionately involved in clambering up and down mountainsides and running a Mgh fever until such time as she can ride a horse fulf gallop along the riverbank. My first unfortunate experience with her mountain mania occurred several years ago after 1 accepted her "come to the Pass" invitation. She was most decent for the initial part of the Journey, hut within 20 minutes of touching mountain soil, developed a mad desire to show me the old railway tracks. I was literally dragged down an impossibly vertical em- bankment, warned about looking out for snakes and had the barely visible tracks pointed out after hacking through a maze of underbrush. The next idea came as a surprise, but sounded fairly reasonable at the time. Since her little old fanner friend lived "just around the next bend in the tracks" Mac suggested we round up his old plugs and go for a ride. We began our trek toward his house, armed with nothing but our high hopes of finding him at home. Now, in the dead of August, when the temperature is hitting 90, with no wind and no clouds, any type of walk can become a bore. But striking out with no idea exactly how far away al- leged house and horses are, can be too much. After an hour of baking in the sunshine, our feet had formed homemade pools in our sneakers, and the next bend in the tracks seemed non-existent. My faith In her reassurances had lapsed Into dismal nods and "sure Mac" six odd miles back, and she didn't rise an inch on my good-works list until we sighted the farm. The place was quite accessible, but necessitated crawl- Ing through a barb-wire fence. Mac pulled the wire far enough apart to let me creep by, lost her strength midway, and I wound up with a neatly shredded blouse. Friendly farmer was there; the horses were out to pas- ture miles away. Walking back on the highway wasn't as bad as the rail- way tracks, but a mild coolness existed between us, and tha jesting remarks about judging distance and horses' where- abouts were slightly barbed. Mac's redemption came at supper time when her Nona served real old fashioned Italian spaghetti. I had reasoned my way through the day, and arrived at the conclusion that maybe making good spaghetti was heredi- tary and someday I'd appreciate Mac's cooking abilities. It is and I do, but I draw the line at returning to the scene of the crime. ___________________ Ihurldoy, June I, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Financial equality wanted by women By CAROL I'ASCOK HEGINA (CP) The Na- tional Council of Women of Can- ada was urged here to work lor abolishment of any type of discrimination against women whicli keeps marriage from being considered an equal finan- cial partnership. June Menzies, president of the Manitoba Council of Women, told the national annual meeting that although housewives do work essential to state and soci- ety, the law entitles them to nothing more than bed and board. The situation could be recti- fied by divorce legislation divid- ing all investments or property accumulated, during the part- nership, meaning the woman could build up equity during marriage.
