Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Guides in disguise PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) The girl guides were probably formed as the result of an early women's liberation ef- fort, says Mrs. N. G. Ashworth of Victoria. Mrs. Ashworth is 80. When she was girl she and a friend gate-crashed a boy scout rally at the Crystal Palace in London. Later, she and her friend and some other girls from their vil- lage formed one of the first guide companies. Only it was really a scout troop. They used only initials instead of first names to dis- guise their sex. When they were accepted, they ordered all the regulation boy's uniform except the short pants. It would have been unlliinkable for girls to wear short pants. Mrs Ashworth says the girl guides were formed in 1910 after girls had enrolled in scouting UNSUITABLE FOR GIRLS She says Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the scout movement, never approved of girls camp- ing, cutting down trees, cooking outdoors, because [hey were considered unsuitable pastimes for Victorian young ladies. She says she first met him at the scout rally. About 20 girls bad crashed it and together they told Lord Baden-Powell that they were girl scouts. "In later years I got to know him quite well, and he told me his encounter with the first girl scouts had been quite a shock to him and he hadn't known whether to be flattered or angry." Mrs. Ashworth says she still believes the 10 guide laws pro- vide girls with a standard by which they can live.

STRETCH STITCHES DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read the poern from the wife to "The Other Woman" I began to think about the mar- ried couples who live in this neighborhood. Here are a few thumbnail sketches of the wives: Bernice: Wears curlers 24 hours a day. Is a chronic com- plainer and gets stoned every afternoon on beer. By the time her husband comes home for dinner she is staggering around the kitchen, blind. Marge: Visits neighbors all day and says she can't do housework except on impulse. These impulses always coma at night when her husband says he is getting ready for bed. Emily: Weighs 280 pounds. When sbo (which is all the she drops food on her chin and clotliing. Her bosom- looks like a snack tray. Lenore: Has told all the neighbor ladies they are fools td let [heir husbands "use" them as substitute call girls. She says SEX is DEGRADING unless a woman is in the mood. Her "moods" come twice a year. I am a widow (under 40) and have been propositioned by every one of their husbands. One soft smile, one wide-eyed, listening look and I could be the Olher Woman. It shouldn't be that way. Tell 'em, will you? Huntington Station DEAR HUNT: Tell 'cm what There's nothing left to say! DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am divorced and my husband has remarried. I gave him custody of our 13-year -old son be- cause I felt it would be better for an adolescent male to be with his father. I have custody of our 16-year-old daughter. She is a handful but we get along reasonably well. Last night I came home from my night-school class early. The teacher became ill and the class was cancelled. I caught my daughter and her boyfriend in a most embar- rassing situation. There is no question about what they were doing. The boy is 17 her steady a nice kid, good student, no bum. He left without saving anything. My daughter was so humiliated she couldn't face me. It's just as well. I was completely unslrung and wouldn't have known how to re- spond. Please tell me how to deal with this situation. I am Pieces DEAR I.P.: You sound like an intelligent woman so I needn't tell you there should be no yelling, berating or ing. Once a girl has crossed that line the chances for total abstinence are slim. Discuss with her the seriousness of a physical relationship risks, the commitment, the emotional investment. Make certain she has plenty of information. A mother who does this is not condoning pre-marital sex, she is being sensible and realistic. DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 am W, the father of four nice children. I am writing about my mother-in-law. Her hus- band died two years ago and she still cries and carries on liie the funeral was yesterday. I liked my father-in-law a lot. He was a good guy, but 1 must say he was hen-pecked like nobody I ever saw in myi life. His wife treated him as if he was a moron. She wouldn't let him open his mouth. She corrected his English and finished his sentences. She wouldn't even allow him to drive when she was in the car. This might be a terrible thing to say but when he died my first thought was, "The poor guy is free last." I think the reason my mother-in-law feels so awful is be- cause she's ashamed of the way she treated him. And since I am doing a little amateur psychology I should confess the reason I am writing this letter is because my wife is getting more like her mother every day. What I am trying to say is I'd rather have a FAIR deal while I am still living than a BIG deal after I am gone. Please print this. Flowers Now DEAR FLOWERS: Thanks for unloading. I'll bet you feel better already. Jhunday, Junt 13, 1973 TH( LETHBRIDOe HMALD 13 Garments of shame SWISS MAD! GET THI FACTS fji fr. 1 B.yeori ago AV I created Stretch Stitches.

The new clothes are almost a year away. Chevalier, who has won inter- national recognition for his cus- tom-tailored approach to ready- to-wear collections, will design a career wardrobe for the stew- ardesses, replacing the tradi- tional uniform with co-ordinated ensembles and accessories. Chevalier was born in Mont- real of a French-speaking father and an. English-speaking mother. He can switch from fluent French to English so col- loquial strangers often ask if he VANCOUVER (CP) Thir- ty million animals die every year to satisfy the western world's craving for mink coats, alligator handbags and leopard- skin rugs, the widow of Sir Hugh Dowding of Battle of Britain fame said here. Murial, Lady Dowding, founder of the British Beauty Cruelty anti vivlsec- tionist movement, told the Van- couver Phsychic Society ttiat fur coats arc becoming "gar- ments of especially with synthetic fur coats now available. Lady Dowding said that per- sons who buy clothing and other products made from ani- mals or tested on them don't hink of the misery they are perpetuating. Shampoos are tested in the eyes of rabbi is, she said, and :he explraive harpoons used to kill whales which supply adopted his French surname for artistic effect. "We seem to have a transat- lantic fashion he says. "It's a European sense of style combined with American practi- cality. We're somewhere in be- tween the two." And he says "our really terri- ble climate" is partly responsi- ble for Canada's unique fashion image, whereby it's possible "to look chic and feel comfortable at the same time." This combi- nation of style and comfort is becoming a world-wide fashion phenomenon, "a practical and economics! way of dressing to fulfil the needs of a heclic, de- manding and constantly chang- ing modem lifestyle." His conception of a new fash- ion look for Air Canada will be based "not on revolution but on the Montreal de- signer says. His career ward- robe, which the company hopes to introduce from the beginning of next year, is part of a con- tinuing program initiated by the airline to bring its flight fash- ions in line with today's "big trend toward mixing anc matching, adding and subtract- ing." "We look forward lo the day when airline personnel can alight from an aircraft correctly and comfortably dressed in ap. pare! suited to their function and the climate by simply add- ing or subtracting an item of says Chevalier. "Haute couture in Canada Is he admits. "The more successful you are, the higher the overhead. You can'l stay ahead. So I do most of my work for manufacturers now. It's really more challenging.'

(CP Wirepholo) oils for cosmetics per- fumes often take hours to do ttieir jobs. Man's cruelty to animals bears a close relationship with the psychic world, Lady Dowd- ing told the group. "Once you start to touch the unseen worlds, your percepiion begins to widen, and you see- the great laws being she said. Man thrives in a world of balance, she said. By cruelly killing animals he brings into play "the great law of cause effect.
