Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LFfHBRIDGE HERALD Salurday, Juno 27, 1970- For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor LOOK now and forever close your eyes. Skirts are going down. We've been riding high on the crest of optimism about the mini, but the designers are covering up for us. They've fallen so in love with their own master- pieces they want to see more of them and less of us. Models are under wraps right down to their skinny shinnies. Shoes will have to acquire a little more feminine grace and hair is going back, up, or off or we'll look like a pack of refugees from Halloween. Maybe the .French roll will be back on the back of the head that is. On some women the mini was not always aesthe- tically pleasing, but the micli is to be disliked for very practical reasons. Way back when long skirls were vogue, cars were built differently than they are today. Seats were high off the floor, leaving room for a.skirt. Cars weren't so low-slung, giving you step- ping room, and not too many women drove. The two- car family had not yet hit suburbia. Now it happens that in the two-car family, the wife, for whatever innocuous reasons her husband can think of, gets the smaller car. You know, it's easier for her to drive that big car's too hard for her to push around she packs month's groceries in the Mini Mouse while he flops his briefcase in the Mighty Mammoth lie drives to work in the cool of the day in air-condi- tioned comfort She broils mid-afternoon after the kiddies nap at every red light like a fly on a postage stamp waiting for the edges to shrivel up Anyway that little car is going to be the bane of her life in a midi skirt the hem will drag on the floor in the summer's dust and the winter's slush. We can see some ultimatums being issued the big car, or else a new wardrobe. Husbands will rise up In revolt. Male designers may be forced to stop making us look like hags. Why you ask, should husbands have more in- fluence upon male designers, when it is we who wear the clothes? Well, there's a stickler here that cannot be resolved by a husband-wife squabble, and femi- nine wiles. Do male designers have wives?

Ill health compelled her to submit her resignation as exec- utive secretary to the Leth- bridge YWCA'lhis month. Re- tirement may mean she will be taking life more slowly, but not doing any less. says Mrs. Lancaster, "I've got lime to do all the things I've been saving to do some day. "1 was just so involved at the YW there was never any time left over." One' of the things she's going to tackle will be a box of craf Mrs. Dorothy Lancaster lakes time to enjoy her gar- den in retirement from her position as executive director of the YWCA. en By CHRISTINE PUIIL Herald Staff Writer Eric Russell, local develop- tient officer for department of ndian affairs said that al- hough there is money available or leadership courses, there is 10 money readily obtainable or your type of organization, during the initial meeting of the o u t h e r n Alberta Native Vorr.en's Society held in Letli- iridge Friday.

The women discussed how they were discriminated against by their elected band council. "It's up to us now to fight our own said one native woman. Suggestions for future meet- ings included resource people to speak to the native women on politics of the reserve, alco- holic counselling for drinking parents, sex education, leader- ship courses and parliamentary procedure. Carol Cotton of Standoff was elected chairman and Gladys Little Bear, Lethbridge as secretary-treasurer of the newly- society. The next meeting will be held Thursday, July 23 at p.m. in St. Thomas' parish hall, Cardston. Any interested women are in- vited to attend. Although white women may attend, they not allowed to vote and j asociate members only. supplies that she collected fron Housewives Holiday, one of the YW's community programs. "It's sitting in my basemen in a trunk all dusty, but I've had to wait until I had tin time." Dorothy's round-the-clock ac tivities in the name of the YWCA haven't been confined to herself. "Before I accepted tin position of executive directoi back in I said I woulc have to get the approval of my family. "I don't drive and Ken has had to tote me around especial ly back in the days when I hat to go to the schools to check on the school programs. "I have a husband who de serves a medal. He's an honor ary member of the YW, he's dene so much driving am carrying and moving whenever we needed another hand." Son, Don, has turned his tal ents at handscreening to putting emblems on YWCA materials Mrs. Lancaster gets the whole family rallying around. And rally round they do. Mrs. Lancaster's brother in Calgary donates his time to the Calgary YW campaign because of his sister's involvement. On one table in the livinj room sits a lamp whie Mrs. Lancaster made as a YW project out of resin. "I had to do something to keep up will the rest of the she ex- plains as she points out the paintings on the wall. Hang- ing there are three generations of Lancaster oils, her hus- band's, her son's and her father-in-law's. Mrs. Lancaster has seen the YW through some rocky times. There was the proposed amal- gamation of the YW-YM facili- ties in 1963. Ken Spence, genef- al secretary of the Lethbridge Family Y says he has always maintained an excellent rela- tionship with Mrs! Lancaster even through these "troubled times." He described her "always co-operative, a hard worker, she'll be missed, but it's great for1 her." The YW residents will join in those sentiments. She's helped girls get jobs, made them toe the line, and been a second mother and counsellor to every- one. Among her many memories of life at the YW will be let- ters and comments from form- er residents. "I'll be grateful for as long as I I'ead one such letter about Mrs. Lancas- ter's assistance. At the time such supervision wasn't always appreciated, and sometimes she was told it was none of her business what they did. "I always told the girls that mothers sent them here mowing that they would be supervised. I'd be remiss if I didn't set them straight and watched out for them." She was. available at any lour of the day or night and often stayed at the Y when the rouse mother couldn't be on hand. "When I started at the Y in she recalls, "I only work- ed three mornings a week. I didn't want anything full time. That's all I said I would ever do. I had to be home early for lunch as Don had just, started school and I wanted to be home by 12. "They just handed me more and more. Soon I was doing meal planning and other work.

Mrs. Dorothy Lancaster, for- mer executive director has re- signed as of June 1 for health reasons. Mrs. Doreen Onofrychuk, per- sonnel chairman said the YW board of director's have to decide if an executive director will be hired or just a program director. This decision, which is to be announced early in July, de- pends entirely on the budget. The YW has been experiencing financial difficulty. Although Mrs. Ruth Slobo- dian has continued the program since January, the fall program of the YW will ride entirely on the shoulders of volunteers. Mrs. Findlay said the YW has "very good and dependable vol- unteers." If a qualified local person cannot be found, applications will Ire accepted from other areas. Mrs. Findlay said this is a special position and a re- placement for Mrs. Lancaster will not soon be found. projects.

Then in I960 when the next di- rector left I agreed to take over for six months until they found someone else. "I never did leave." Mrs. Lancaster recalled form- er executive directors Mavis Thurley, tile first director and who came from I he national office; an Australian girl who thought the residence should be run like a European hostel with everything quiet all day. "She'd nin to the stairs and yell 'turn that wireless off.' We had telephone operators who wer on shifts and you couldn't kee the place quiet."

She thinks the day of tl volunteer may be over. "Man women are happier doing dividual projects and sho term assignments. Instead committees, a task force for specific jcb might be in order. The last official ties with tl YW will be broken Septembe 1 when her term of office pires. The more tenuous one will remain from visits from "her girls." Judging by the projects Mr?
