Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta WedntufoY, Jun. 20, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID COLUMNIST'S NOTEBOOK NEW YORK (AP) Maybe I'm a male chauvinist pig. Maybe I'm not. But whether or not I'm a male chauvinist pig, I'm tired of being called one by a lot of strident women who ought to have their mouths washed out with soap or tossed into the town pond as common scolds. A lot of men I know are getting annoyed by being de- nounced as male chauvinist pigs by a pack of female har- ridans who wouldn't be pleased by a man if he were a cross between Sir Galahad and St. Francis. Because of a courtesy to the fair sex learned at my moth- er's lesson was ap- plied with the back end of a wouldn't refer to these shrewish ladies as fe-" male chauvinist pigs. But female they chauvinists they are. The dic- tionary defines chauvinism as "undue partiality or attach- ment to an ideal or cause. I submit that a majority of the women of America recog- nize that some of these apostles and their claims are ridiculous, hysterical and downright laughable. Some of them seem to want not equal- ity with men but outright war beween the sexes. DONT WANT WAR I don't think the ordinary American woman wants to be without a man or, having him, to make a war between them. The goal is one of mu- tual affection and and fun. What is puzling to most men is a new type of hybrid female emerging from the womens liberation move- ment. She is the type who wants to exact from a man the gal- lantries of the past but at he same time insist on hsr right to compete with him on fully equal terms in the career field. Even if she is trying to take his own job away from Mm, she expects him to reach for the tab first if they have a business luncheon. She is is man. Even though she is after his very bread and butter, he can't treat her as a rival. Po- liteness is forced on him by every tradition of the past. What can a man do to deal with the underhanded tactics of this new hybrid type of woman The ruth is that it is all so new to him the average man hasn't figured out yet what he can do about it except to break his sword across his knee and surrender. As Socr- ates said, "once woman is made equal to man, she be- comes his superior. No wonder men are galled by being called male chauvin- ist pigs. They feel more like blind idiots. NEW YORK (AP) Al- most everyone denies he ever uses double-talk, but every- No child is so innocent, no older person so saintly but that he resorts to double talk at times, either to safeguard his own person or protest the vanities and self-delusions of friends. Double talk, after all, Is merely saying one thing while your mind is thinking the op- posite. That enables one to keep order in the world while retaining ones own inner common sense and sanity. Here are a few common ex- amples of double talk in ac- tion. What the person said is in quotes. It is followed in each case by what he actually thought. "Considering the future value of this property, your offer is an if it's in cash, I'll take the insult. "I've never been out with a bird-watching group before. It's quite ine, not even one good-looking girl in the crowd! "Yes, I believe I've seen you in the supermarket now and the pig who tried to shove ahead of me in the checkout line yes- terday. MORE HBDDEN NEEDLES "How clever it was of you to wear a green wig to the masquerade What were you trying to look like, a mouldy grapefruit or the Jolly Green Giant "I remember your mother telling you as a little girl that if you drank lots of milk you'd grow up to have a beau- tiful what kind of milk did you drink, al- ligator milk "Yes, theres no doubt that your dieting did you a lot of could park you in a field now and use you as a scarecrow. "Would you really divorce me if you ever caught me cheating on I were sure you wculd, I'd quit being so careful. THE MOUNTIES Written by members and ex-members themselves. Flying Mountie a number of years ago, a former Commissioner of the Royal C a n a dian Mounted Police enjoyed tell- ing the following story of an actual experience in which he was the principal figure. "I qualified as a pilot when I was a member of the Cana- dian Air Force. I kept my pilot's licence valid and con- tinued flying after I left the air force. "Once after I had been ap- pointed to this post, I was flying my own small plane in Saskatchewan. I was on my way to Regina, but because of engine trouble, I was forc- ed to make an emergency landing in a field close to a small town. This was about a hundred miles away from the city where I had an im- portant engagement, but I knew that there was an RCMP detachment in the town. "I walked into town, locat- ed the headquarters and walked in with every inten- tion of commandeering a ride into Regina. "The constable in charge enquired as to what he could do for me. Without realizing that I had forgotten to iden- tify myself, I said I would like to be driven into the city. Surprised "The constable gave me a somewhat surprised once over. He saw a middle aged man dressed in civilian ctothes, unfamiliar and un- identified, and replied: "What in hell do you think this is; a taxi service for the "Somewhat taken aback by this reply. I answered 'Apparently you do not know I am.' "I don't know who you are, and I don't give a damn either1' replied the irritated constable. "I then produced my cre- dentials. You can probably sympathize with the poor constable's embarrassment. Needless to say, he wasted no time in complying with my wishes to be driven into Regina and performed that duty himself." Polite The commissioner used this true story as a pointed illustration that "anyone" might be "someone" and that all policemen should be polite on all occasions. He did not absolve himself from fault though; he admit- ted that he was equally guilty in failing to identify himself immediately. V: House alive! Inside and out.
