Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 7. 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Quadriplegic mother of healthy daughters Paralysed woman mother of two BIGELOW, Minn. (AP) Although her legs are totally paralysed and she has only slight movement in her arms, Bernis Jongetjes has become the mother of two healthy daughters. Doctors at Worthington Regional Hospital could find no record of United States quadriplegics who had given WeeWhimsy wilt be sent the original an for fer queue Send your child's quotation to this paper Rights issue Liberal key to get vote MONCTON. N.B. (CP) Women's rights remain a key subject with the federal government and a re-elected Liberal administration will continue its efforts on their behalf. Robert Andras, minister of manpower and immigration, said this week. Speaking to the annual- meeting of the National Council of Women. Mr. Andras said the Liberals already have implemented 40 of the 122 recommendations of the royal commission on the status of women. Work is continuing on the other recommendations and will resume immediately in the next Parliament, he said. Mr. Andras said that it was the opposition parties which had brought down the last Parliament and. as a result, postponed two pieces of women's rights legislation. One bill was designed to give more flexibility for payment of unemployment insurance benefits to women who have their earnings interrupted bv pregnancy, he said. WOULD CHANGE LEAVE The amendment would change the 15-week maternity leave regulation, permitting Hie payments to be made any lime from eight weeks before birth to 15 weeks afterward. A second piece of legislation would have amended the Immigration Act to remove the "head of family" reference from the legislation. "While the term itself is ac- tually neutral in wording, it is almost invariably taken to mean husband, no matter what the situation may be." Mr Andras said The amendments also will provide that dependent mem- bers of a family, including a wife, will no longer be auto- matically deported under a deportation order for the husband, he said. birth, and of 19 cases of quadriplegics who had children in Britain only two bore more than one child. Mrs. Jongetjes, now at home with daughters Dawn, 3, and Vicki 2 months, can prepare the baby's bottle and feed her. For more complex chores, such as changing a diaper, the baby's grandmother helps. Mrs. Jongetjes was paralyzed in 1970 when her spinal cord was damaged in a fall. Dawn was born four months later at a navy hospital in South Carolina. I Contemporary meaning placed on diamonds NEW YORK (AP) Diamonds are getting a different I look from young designers who are using them in new ways. Such disparate types as a Coty Award-winner who dotes on cowrie shells and beetles' wings in jewelry, a designing sister team and a poetic housewife and mother who de- signs what she calls "human sculpture" have discovered diamonds. The diamond, long considered the symbol of love and still favored by 75 per cent of brides, has taken on new meaning as a contemporary fashion accessory. This is mainly due to increased use of small diamonds, which are adaptable to many exciting designs and are more affor- dable than the larger stones. Cliff Nicholson, young nature-loving designer who uses petrified beetles, natural cowrie shells and slabs of x mother-of-pearl as the basis for his sculpture-like necklaces, has just unveiled his first diamond collection. Nicholson began designing jewelry in 1970, and fashion pundits wasted no time in recognizing his talent with a Coty Award. His first diamond collection features pieces containing single diamonds or just a few stones in shades that pick up the subtle colorings of molded gold or mother-of-pearl that form the base of his designs. Because he uses relatively small amounts of gold, em- ploying shells and other materials and suspending his dia- monded sculptures from dyed-to-match woven neck ropes, Nicholson's one-of-a-kind designs are relatively S easy on the bank account. The young designing team of Michelle and Janis Savitt, sisters who have been designing sleek contemporary jew- 'S elry in their own factory, operates under the name MJS. Michelle is 22 and Janis is 19. They have gained national attention in fashion magazines and sell their line of modern, art-decor-influenced, gold and silver jewelry in 2 many top stores. The Savitts launched their first diamond collection starting with classic designs, sprinkled liberally with small diamonds in circular or diagonal patterns or an extensive assortment of gold bangles, cuffs and pendants, ear-rings and rings with round and square shanks. Alice Abranis sees and designs jewelry as wearable, touchable human sculpture. A poetic mother of two, she has been designing and exhibiting her distinctive jewelry in and around Denver, where she moved with her surgeon husband 11 years ago. She began designing jewelry on commission about five years ago, working with her customers' own diamonds and cradling them in unusual settings. Alice believes a design should "react" with a diamond, "enhancing its existing brilliance, beauty and durabil- ity." This is far from the concept that a stone's setting was no more than a holder for the gem. Her pendants and rings combine the molded look of sculpture with the practicality and comnort of fine jewelry. They also feature small diamonds. CAC teStS THE BETTER HALF pantyhose By Barnes OTTAWA (CP) Pantyhose snags and bags are a feature of most of the 16 brands of one-size pantyhose tested by the Consumers' Association of Canada. Only one brand L'Eggs lived up to its claim of fitting all figure sizes comfortably, the association reported today. However, the brand didn't rate highly for touch and appearance in the wear trials. Cheaper brands will perform favorably on certain figure types. CAC says. Found acceptable for medium and large figure types were Whisper, Simpsons-Sears, Petite Bell. Young Flair and Maybelle in that order. Women with long legs won't go far wrong with Secret, Fair Set and Zellers, while women with short legs can snuggle comfortably info Bonimart and The Very Thing. "If a healthy body means a healthy mind, my new secretary must be a regular Einstein." Ann Landers Agency to protect children WASHINGTON (Reuter) The chairman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission said this week his agency will move to protect children from over-zealous advertisers. Lewis Engman told the American Advertising Federation that he will recommend a crackdown on the use of premiums to entice children into buying and would move to block the use of "hero figures" in advertisements aimed at children. Industry efforts to control children's advertising have failed, he said. He also said that using sports figures, entertainment personalities, cartoon characters or figures from children's programs could also be an unfair practice under federal laws The National Association of Broadcasters has been working for nearly a year to reform its industry code on chiidrens advertising, an effort Mr. Engman said has not succeeded. He told the advertising group that other areas not adequately dealt with include. advertising of vitamins and drugs to children. Advertising dangerous toys and other products hazardous 1o health or safety. Lady: Why don't you cut the bull and tell those guys who resent it when the little woman wants a night out that she has just as much right to "single it" as he does? When men say they want a night out with the boys, what they are really looking for is a night out with the girls. If a wife is willing to be THAT broad minded (ha, ha, he's got broads on his mind all then HE should say "O.K.. Honey, go out and enjoy yourself, too." I am not a Woman's Lib nut or anything like that. I just believe fair is fair. And the rules of the game should be the same for both sexes. The double standard went out with the buggy whip and corset stays. Let's face it. after five years every marriage goes stale. A little diversion can be a very good thing. So why not encourage people to be open and truthful instead of putting on a big act? There isn't a husband who hasn't strayed at least once aiter five years of marriage, and you can bet your life on Troth Dear Mr. T.: Bet your own. kiddo. Your sweeping generalizations are too darned sweeping as far as I am concerned. Dear Ann Landers: Is something wrong with me? Whenever I get a compliment, like someone will say. "Gee, I like thai I always reply, "It's three years old" or, "I got it on sale for half price." Yesterday somebody complimented me on a c-r.ain I was wearing around my neck. I said. "It's not real gold. It's actually a cheap little thing I picked up in a novelty shop Afterwards I'm always sorry after I answer that way because sometimes I think I insult people. It's like telling them they don't know quality from junk. What's wrong with me? How can I overcome -this Dear C.: Everyone, no matter how sophisticated or well adjusted, has some area of insecurity. You need practice in accepting praise of any kind. Try this. Have a stock answer ready for the very next person who gives you a compliment. Say: "Thank you. I like it, too. How nice of you to notice.'' Dear Ann Landers: Some of your "experts" aren't so expert. For example, that music teacher who suggested to parents that they start their children on a second hand instrument when they begin to take lessons. I teach music in the public schools. I always advise parents (particularly those of talented children) to go to a reliable music store and use the rental plan if they can't afford to buy a new instrument outright. There is nothing more defeating
