Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, June J4, 1972 Cocktail ivaitress looks at people NEW YORK (AP) For- mer librarian with dramatic as- pirations is getting a first-hand look at human nature as a cock- tail waitress in a New York hotel. "You learn a lot about people when they are consuming alco- said Bonnie Phillips, who works in the French Quarter of the Americana Hotel. "For instance, I have discov- ered that junior executives around this town take vodka martinis before lunch because they leave them breathless when they go back to the office. They will often down four or even five cocktails, and rarely show it. I guess it's because they keep in practice." Bonnie, who worked as librar- ian in the record room of the Shell Oil Co., likes her waitress duties which she does in addi- tion to modelling assignments. Jn fact, she finds it more in- structive than office work. She plans to go to drama school in the fall, but at present, Bonnie says she is getting a liberal edu- cation observing the patrons in he hotel. "Patrons, especially women, don't take Ihose fancy drinks ike Alexanders she said. "They claim that the cream and sugar ruin their fig- ures. Instead they stick to bloody marys, scotch and water has mar- tinis. There is also a big de- mand for vodka and low-calorie drinks." Bonnie has also learned from experience that customers get more troublesome ou martinis. This applies particularly to men, who sometimes make half-hearted passes at lite wait- resses. The girls wear abbrevi- ated costumes. "Let's face she said, "these costumes are pretty pro- vocative, and a man likes to think that he is attractive to a girl who wears one. But we usually manage to kid them oul of it, and there is never any real trouble." Yes, these nurses are truly Angels of Mercy.

Ed Finlay pholo Amnesty wanted for Spanish prisoners OTTAWA (CP) Juana Leon Sanchez and Victoria Rodriguez want General Francisco Franco to declare a general amnesty for all Span- ish political prisoners. That includes their husbands now locked inside Madrid's Cara- banchel prison. The two women were in Canada recently as guests of the Canadian Committee for a Democratic Spain, talking to small groups and news representatives in hopes of mobilizing international opin- ion behind their cause. Mrs. Leon's husband, a 39- year-old bricklayer, was sen- tenced last November to 12 years imprisonment. He was convicted o! illegal associa- tion after his arrest with nine others at a clandestine meet- SEMI-ANNUAL 1 OF LADIES' SHOES STARTS MONDAY, JUNE 26th at 9 a.m. Discounts of 20% to 50 (Except on Nurses' Clinic Shoes) ANDBAGS REDUCED STERLING SHOES NO EXCHANGES NO REFUNDS AH SALES FINAL 320A 6th STREET SOUTH, LETHBRJDGE PHONE 327-3344 ng of laborers, all members of an illegal workers commis- sion, or trade union. Mrs. Rodriguez, a 25-year- old secretary and mother, doesn't know how long her husband will be in prison. A 30-year-old commercial artist, he is awaiting sentencing on a charge of possessing illegal propaganda. He was caught carrying leaflets critical of Franco and his government, still firmly in power after winning a bloody civil war fought from 1937 to 1939, with the help of the Fas- cist dictators Hitler and Mus- solini. In an interview during their brief stay in Ottawa, the women gave their own de- scription of the harsh Spanish system. Even foreign-lan- guage publications are regu- larly banned for containing news items unacceptable to the government. Mrs. Leon said the trip to Canada was the only way she had of "denouncing the whole system of repression the workers live under." "Workers are shot for de- manding Mgher wages." But she wants to work with- out violence for a change in Spain. "In Spain there is a very general feeling against an- other civf! last time there were a million dead and the prisons were overflowing. "People want their rights and they are struggling peace- fully to get them." "Yes, it will certainly anger them, but I feel I would not be worthy of my husband and my people if I did not do this."

Their families must, then upport them as well as their hildren. We must take food and clothes to them in jail." She said that in one rnedie- al prison, political prisoners are chained to the wall. Political prisoners are al- vays moved as far away from heir homes and families as jossible, she said, making it lilficult to make morale- loosting visits. While common criminals were allowed parole privi- eges, political prisoners were never allowed out before their sentence had expired. The trip was paid for by the Toronto-based Canadian Com- mittee for aDemocratic Spain. There is law against aid- ing the families of political prisoners and the women will not take any donated money with them when they return. It mil be distributed secretly by the Canadian committee through an international centre established in Paris by Spanish expatriates. noticed how many people have been taken over by a pet? Of course many of these poor deluded humans pretend they're still in control, but don't you believe it! The moment a pet enters his new home, he starts lick- ing his family into shape; and the cuter and more appeal- ing he is, the quicker he gets to be top dog. Mind you, it's easier for some than others. Take my aunt's (as if you'd want He didn't get to first base for almost a year. Couldn't even get to sit on the chesterfield. Then he developed a slight illness and the vet sent him to bed for a couple of days. By the lime he staggered pathetically to his feet, he had my aunt suckcred into bringing him breakfast in bed. As he happened to be passionately attached to poached eggs, for the rest of his life he sulked in his basket until this little delicacy was kid before him. Only when Ihe saucer was lick- ed clean would he condescend to get up in the morning. And I used to have a childhood friend who was the envy of every kid in the neighborhood. She kept a monkey in the backyard. From the other side of the fence this was okay, but she had to keep an unending supply of bananas on hand, and he had this thing about leaping into every stray window he found open. I lost count of the times she had to burgle houses and cars to rescue her pet. Then there's the little roan who operates a corner grocery in Edmonton. He was owned lock, stock and barrel by a mynah bird. This fine feathered so-called friend imitates the man's voice beautifully, and from the back of the store hurls insults at incoming customers. The poor man has lost an awful lot of business, but the last time I was in Edmonton, I noticed he was still stuck with that smart alecky bird. You can see why I felt I had to stand firm the other day when Son Three asked if he could get a pet baby elephant. However, you do occasionally meet up with the odd pet that's mentally subnormal, thank heavens. We once came under the evil influence of Pud, a gentle- man canary, guaranteed to sing liis heart out or your money cheerfully refunded. Hah! We hung him in the back porch and he never uttered a squeak as long as we knew him. Then one day he laid an mean, how incredibly stupid can a male canary get? Dumber than that even, believe it or not. He fell off his perch aid broke his leg. Have you ever seen a canary hopping around with two toothpicks and a plaster cast stuck to one leg? But I have a deep attacluncnt to that bird. Wheuever I see one of those spinetingling horror movies about creatures taking over the world I get distinctly appre- hensive until I remember Pud, and then my faith In the su- periority of the human race is rapidly restored. 25th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY Family and friend, are Invited 1o attend a party for Glenn and Bev Perry of Chin on the occasion of their 25th wedding anniversary on Saturday, July 1st, at p.m., In the Cranford Community Hall, No gifts by request.
