Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, 12, wing Biological traits questioned in book By CY FOX CP Staff Writer A Canadian woman's new book on femininity on the works of three great 20th-century writ- ers has reopened the issue of whether male and fsmale char- acteristics have anything to do with the production of works of art. The book by Lisa Appignanesi of Montreal is praised as "a re- markable and stimulating achievement'' b y prominent psychologist Anthony Storr in The Sunday Times of London. Under the title Femininity and the Creative Imagination, Mrs. Boren- stein before her marriage- gives an exhaustive trsatment of the way the idea of the femi- nine is dealt with in the novels of Anglo-American Henry James. Austrian Robert Musil and Frenchman Marcel Proust. But the volume is more than ers literature at the University of Essex in England. Her husband is Richard Ap- pignanesi, a Canadian poet, nov- elist and art historian whose first volume of verse was pub- lished this year, also in Britain. Mrs. Appignanesi brings to her teaching and writing work BA and MA degrees from Mc- Gill University, Montreal, and a doctorate from the British Uni- versity Of SUS33X. She combined her studies at McGill with a period of work at the Montreal bureau of The Ca- nadian Press in 1963. Her new book, published by m Press of London, finds that Henry James treats the feminine as a force "turning mar inwards to a moral exami- nation cf himsslf." IRRATIONAL BEING In Musil, whose Man Without Qualities is a huge but unfin- ished masterpiece of modern lit- III" iijwi v. an academic treatise. Instead, e t a t u r e, woman symbolizes Mrs. Appignanesi, already au- thor of a New York-published book on the generation gap, is interested in "liberating the personality o f contemporary from the unhealthier phases of the mystery obscuring her." NOT DOCTRINAIRE Yet her viewpoint bears few signs cf being a doctrinaire "women's lib" one and she credits the three male writers in her study with a profound ability to "illuminate ths place of femininity in the creative im- agination." Mrs. Appignanesi now teacn- "the poetic, imaginative and spiritual the anarchic and irrational ways of being and seeing." In Proust, says Mrs. Appigna- nesi, the feminine is "that realm from which stem the in- tuitive flashes of insight out of which art is made.'' The long Sunday Times re- view by Anthony Storr says Mrs. Appignanesi's book "raises general issues about the crea- tive process of great interest." "However, I think it is time we dropped the labels 'mascu- line' and 'feminine' in this con- Storr goes on. and out Dr. Ronald Lacey and his wife Dr. Barbara Lacey enter- tained at a recent dinner party in honor of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Vernon Lacey, on the forthcoming occasion of i their 50th wedding anniver- sary, June 16.

Pill said to undermine moral fibre FOOTNOTES by JOE Grandma and Grandpa love to dance now, since they got shoes from JOE GREEN'S. for DAD on his Day! SHOES by Hartt MacFarlane Wallabees Golf Shoes Choose from our selection -OOHT FORGET! JOHANNESBURG (AP) The South African govern- ment is studying a plan to distribute free birth control pills to women. Some guard- irns of public morals already are objecting. "I will be shocked if the pill becomes available to unmar- ried said Dr. Louw Alberts, chairman of the Society of Moral Norms. "It will how far South Africa has slipped into a per- missive philosophy. It would be tantamount to licensing immorality. It is not only con- trary to Christian principles, but undermines the moral fibre of the community." OPEN THURSDAY TILL 9 P.M. GREEN!

The slate officers was elected, with Dr. Gudrun Hesse named president, for the com- ing term. Katharine Russell was elect- ed vice-president; Sheila Jac- obson, secretary; Heather Neu- feld, treasurer; Mary Graham, membership secretary; Dr. Edna Pratt, so- cial convenor and Mary Bailey, program co-ordinator. "Whatever arguments may be presented in favor of the pill, no honest Christian can condone Alberts said. The plan is to distribute free contraceptives from gov- ernment stocks as a public ssrvice through the country's retail druggists. The pills will be available on pre- scription only, but they will be supplied to women of all races, married and unmar- ried, without age restriction. URGED BY DRUGGISTS The Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa proposed the plan in conjunction with the department of health. "To qualify for a free pre- scription, a woman must bs a member of a health depart- ment family planning said P. R. van der Merwe, di- rector of the PhannacEutical Society. Women seeking free pills must visit a clinic for a medi- cal examination. They would then be issued with a pre- scription good at any pharmacy for a specific pe- riod. Another visit to a clinic is necessary before the pre- scription is renewed. Druggists expect to profit indirectly by an increase in the number of people visiting tbsir shops. Chairman P. F. Steyn said the Pharmaceutical Society proposed the plan to the gov- ernment. "I don't think there is any precedent anywhere in the world, any country where pn- va'.e enterprise has made an offer like this to the govern- he said. "It is revolu- tionary." Government approval re- flects concern about ths in- creasing black birth rate. There are more than 17 mil- lion non-whites in this country and fewer than four million whiles. oca The regular monthly meeting of the Sir Alexander Gait Chap- ter, IODE, will be held at the home of Mrs. J.
