Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wettnejday, June 21, 1972 European solution to name problem BASEL, Switzerland (WNS) European from Lapp- land to Sicily have been slow to rally around tliat pet wo- men's lib issue, the vexing Ms question. Indeed, outside the British Isles, the proper mode of ad- dressing a lady is all but a non- topic, and for a good reason: In most of continental Eur- ope, unlike the English-speak- ing nations, married women never really lose (heir names. The wife's" maiden name is tacked onto her husbands sur- name by means of a hyphen. Problem resolved. Thus, at least for the mo- ment, most of the heat gener- ated by the Ms debate is felt off the Continent in England and in North America. Even so, Hans Dietrich Gens- cher, West Germany's interior minister, acted recently to de- fuse any feminist limebombs that might be ticking in the Fatherland. For some time the govern- ment has accorded the designa- tion of Frau to unmarried em- pEoyees once they readied the age of 30. Now all female em- ployees will be addressed as Frau, regardless of age or marital status, unless they ob- ject. Here in male-dominated Swit- zerland, where women only won national voting rights in 1971, the- Bunclesrat has failed lo follow suit. But feminists in- sist that bread-and-butter in- equities must be rectified be- fore women can worry about semantic niceties. Margrit Gotz-Schlatler, vice- president of the Swiss Associa- tion for Women's Kights, for in- stance, decries the "Arab mentality" of Swiss males. Yet BRENDA'S BEAUTIQUE BEAUTY SHOP 922 S Ave. N. Phone 326-7366 she doubts the "efficiency" of conferring a Frau designation on ull women "unless Uicy ore unmarried mothers." A more militant Swiss femin- ist group, the Movement Against the Idiotizing of Wo- men, favors the word Frau as a general term for all women. This small Basel-based move- ment also urges women to vote only for other women at elec- tion time; in recent city elec- tions here few of the newly- enfranchised women voters heeded Ihis plea. Despite its high ratio of male chauvinists, Switzerland doesn't let women lose their maiden names through marri- age in German, French, Ital- ian, or Itomansch. When Hanni Barandun be- came tliis reporter's wife, for example, she officially as- sumed the name Hanni Shep- ard-Barandun. This suffix often helps dis- tinguish between persons with (lie same surname. Switzer- land's foreign minister during World War II, Marcel Pilet, had a namesake in the parlia- ment; thus the Swiss press al- ways identified him as Pilet- Golaz, the suffix being his wife's maiden name. This system also prevails in many other European coun- tries. In Italy, for example, there are Carlo and Sophia Ponti-Loren; in France, Roger and Jane Vadim-Fonda; in Monaco, Rainier and Grace Grimaldi-Kelly. In Norway and Sweden the pattern is reversed: the wife's maiden name precedes the hus- bands surname. At limes the system breaks down, admit Sverre and Elizabeth Hanssen- Hanssen. The Netherlands, probably the most "liberated" European country for women, conies as close as anyone to an Ms-like solution. The general term "Juffrouw" is often substituted for either "Mevrouw" (Mrs.) or "Mejuffrouw" BINGO MOOSE HAIL 1234 3rd AVENUE NORTH WEDNESDAY at P.M.

And how can they con- tinue to add to their savings when higher prices are eat- ing up more and more of the wages they receive? One or two good shopping practices help out, but they do not result in the consistent sav- ings that may be needed in order to keep the food budget in line when prices are rising so rapidly. It doesn't do any good to save 15 per cent on food one week and overspend by 18 per cent the next. Leading the skill of better shopping does take time and ef- fort; but if you are willing to try, you could very soon be saving from 10 to 20 per cent each week on your total food bill, with, at the most, 30 min- utes extra time for planning and record keeping. On an av- erage weekly shopping bill of a 15 per cent saving is S4.00. For 30 minutes' time you would save Could anyone object to that? Cornell University, as part of its Co operative Extension branch of education, has pub- lished a program to help the consumer save on the weekly food bill.

THE BETTER HALF By Barnes MEXICO CITY (Reuter) Saddled with one of the world's highest birth rates, Mexico is launching its first family plan- ning program next re- fuses to call it birth control. In this predominantly Roman Catholic country, big families are common. In the country- side, a man's or virility, is often measured by the number of children he has. But statistics point to the dis- turbing probability that by the year 2000, Mexico will have a population of 131 million. Even now, with only 51 million, pover- ty-stricken Mexicans migrate by the thousands to the United States. Contraceptive pills will be made available at all govern- ment clinics, free to those who cannot afford them. Tliis is a major switch in pol- icy by the government, although it refuses to admit it is advocat- ing birth control and uses in- stead the term "responsible parenthood." Despite its Importance, the family planning program was announced not by a cabinet minister but by the head of the health ministry's mothers' and childrens' assistance scheme, Dr. David Fragoso Lizalde. Dr. Fragoso says ba- bies were born in Mexico last a rate of 4.5 a minute. This gave Mexico a birth rate of 44.1 for every inhabit- of the highest in the world, surpassing even India and Brazil, two o[ the world's most prolific countries. Dr. Frngoso stresses that no one will be obliged to use con- traceptives. He says the govern- ment will leave parents to de- cide how many children they want to have and what family planning methods they will Fifty per cent of children born are illegitimate. Previously, the government shied away from any official part in family planning, taking the Roman Catholic church lino against "unnatural" means of birth control. The Catholic church has taken a cautiously favorable line, ap- parently anxious to maintain the understandings that have existed between church and state since 1935. Msgr, Rafael Vasquez Corona, spokesman for the Mexican bishops' conference, said the church has always maintained it is up to parents to decide how nany children they should "I like you in that kneeling position. It's the only proper posture to take before your matter." FANCIFULL BEAUTY SALON 738-13 ST.

"If these positions arc worth keeping, surely they should not be left on a discriminatory ap- pointment basis." Mather said he favored a re- duction in the public cost of lieutenant-governors' accommo- dation.
