Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Monday, 18, 1973 LETHMIDOI HEftALD If Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read the letter from the driver of the school bus who complained that the kids were so unruly he had a hard time driving. He described their lack of discipline as a safety problem May I say, Ann, this bus driver has a lot to learn and I know someone who could teach him. I rode the school bus for three years, 50 miles a day, 25 miles to and 25 miles from. Our driver had no problem with kids fighting and screaming. He wouldn't put up with it. When there was any commotion he sim- ply pulled the bus over to the shoulder of the road and stop- ped. He never said one word. In fact he didn't even turn around just looked into his rear- view mirror and the culprits knew that they were being observed. When things calmed down (it usually took less than a minute) he'd get the bus roll- ing again. This man never had an accident and all the kids had a lot of respect for him. So, Ann, whenever you get a letter from a bus driver who complains that the kids are running wild on his bus and jeopardizing their lives, toss it right back. Ask what's the matter with HIM? Wyoming DEAR WYOMING: It is the responsibility of the driv- er to deliver his cargo safe- ly. Obstreperous behavior is as much of a safety hazard as faulty brakes. The dis- ciplinary measure you de- scribed sounds perfect. I rec- ommend it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The letter from "A Doctor's Wife" burned me up. She was undoubtedly trying to defend the members of the Noble Fraternity of Medicine against the charges that some of them make passes at women patients in the exam- ining rooms. What really tick- ed me off was the way she lambasted "the town's bored and neurotic society ladies" who keep propositioning her physician-husband. Her physician husband may be a wonderful, kind- hearted, compassionate man, someone in whom women confide easily, but he also has a very loose hp if he goes home and tells his wife stuff DEAR ANN LANDERS' I can't understand the logic of the young couples who don't want to have children be- cause "there are already too many people fouling up the environment" Yet they have a dog or a cat, or both. Don't animals breathe oxygen and excrete waste' I'm for ecol- like that. I would classify such information as "strictly confidential." I know several doctors' wives and most of them dnnk too much. If their husbands are confiding in them, the medical profession is in sad shape. View From The Bridge DEAR VIEW: I don't be- lieve doctors' wives dnnk more than the wives of law- yers, sewer inspectors or bus drivers. I do go along with you, however, on phys- icians who report a t home about the unseemly behavior of their women patients Such information should stay in the office. ogical preservation, but what about this Like Kids DEAR I. L. K.: Any couple who would rather have a pet than a child should have it. It's their right. I'd hate to be born into a family that would rather have had a dog or a cat. How about you?

Perhaps that's why no one here got excited when the Congress of World Women's Liberation announced earlier this year that it planned a conference on the Isle of Man in September. The congress called it off because of a lack of local sup- port. "There's nothing that women's libbers can teach us said a woman who lives on this British isle in the Irish Sea between Eng- land and Ireland. "Manx women are probably the most liberated in the said Joyce Cottier, a hotelier and active participant in local matters.

Speaking of the world con- gres' original plans for a meeting here, Margo Scott said: "I suppose they thought it would be a gimmick to hold it here, but can offer us nothing we haven't already got and have had for years." IT'S OLD HERE Women's suffrage came to the Isle of Man mucti" earlier than it did in the rest of Brit- ain, although no one seems to have a solid explanation why. In the mists of history Manx women were fighting alongisde their menfolk against invading hordes from Scotland From the earlier days of the island parliament, women have had equal property centuries ahead of Butish laws. Since the 16th century, the illegimate child of a couple who later married became legitimate and the legal heir to his father's estate a re- cent law in England. And in 1577 the victim of a rape was given a sword, a rope and cut off the man's head, hang him or many him. Compulsory education for girls has been law since 1703 167 years before the mainland and in 1881 Manx women got the vote. Emmeline Pankhurst, tha suffragette who led the fight the women's vote in Britain, was of Manx stock. 3 IN HOUSE In the House of Keys, the island's lower house of Parlia- ment, three of the 24 seats are held by women. "That's all we need to keep the men in says Mrs. Cottier. A young hotel receptionist sums it up: "We have a far better tinw here than girls on the main- land, but we don't make any fuss about it." For the record, Man's popu- lation, at the last count, was In the 18-30 age group the females outnumbered tha males 5 to 4.

From the day she was born, Sally Sevigny has lived in a world of silence. Nevertheless, she attended regular schools, graduated from college with a B average and was a student teacher for five months without any of her pupils realizing she was deaf. "I was waiting for them to she said of her 31 Grade 1 pupils at the Elizabeth Bald- win school in Pawtucket. "They never did so I never told them." The story was the same at the Thornton school in John- ston, where Sevigny had difficult-to-teach children. Lucille Bishop, her supervis- ing teacher there, said "most of the childrens' response to her was that she had an ac- cent. They had no idea through- out the whole thing that she couldn't hear." Miss Sevigny relied on her lip-reading skills and drew praise for her work at both schools. She graduated from Rhode Island College earlier this week, and is looking for a full-time teaching job.
