Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March I, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 17 New roles Feminist Betty Friedan gestures as she addresses a seminar at Ottawa University's festival of the couple this week. She talked of the changing roles of the sexes and said passive women are a greater danger to the feminist movement than men. Starvation disease afflicts young women Improvement possible by law changes EDMONTON (CP) The advisory council to the federal government on the status of women believes at least 15 laws should be changed to improve women's position in society. Dr. Katie Cooke, chairman of the advisory council, said this week. She said the list includes changing the minimum age for marriage and ranges from sections of the Criminal Code to parts of the Canada Labor Act. A Canadian in the foreign service receives more a year to send a son home to school than to send a daughter, said Dr. Cooke, who also objected that a directive that women must have equal access to all jobs in the federal public service was not sent to the heads of crown corporations or agencies. Bar baby PRESTON ON WYE. England (CP) When Lesley Spry turned 18 she became eligible to drink in her local pub, the Yew Tree Inn. She also took over as landlady from her mother. Lesley, who thinks she is the youngest publican in England, warned: "The men of the village need not think they can take advantage of me and drink after hours. I intend to be strict about calling time." LONDON (Reuter) Anorexia nervosa, a self imposed starvation disease reported on the increase in affluent countries, is basically a throwback to unhappy mealtimes in childhood, a Dutch doctor says. The disease mainly afflicts young women. It is partly attributed to increased emphasis on "the evils of overweight. It is thought to have increased sevenfold here in the last 10 years. Victims starve themselves to the point of severe malnutrition and often re- quire hospital treatment. Sometimes they starve to death. WeeWhirrisy be sem the ongnal an for her quote Send your child s quotation to this paper FRAME STYLES From AROUND-THE- WORLD Dr. J. J. Groen of Leiden University's department of psychiatry writes in the magazine Nutrition that the disease is the same disorder that causes some toddlers and school children to balk at meals. And that usually results from the child's mother taking all the fun out of meal times by insisting that eating is "a serious duty." Putting his theory to the test. Dr. Groen says he and the head nurse at his unit tried treating anorexia nervosa patients as they did their own children, aged 6 to 8. The patients, aged between 14 and 38, were spoon-fed daily.

The Lethbridge Herald Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: My husband is so mad at my father he'd like to kill him. This is what happened and I wish you'd tell me what can be done about it. In 1965, two years after we were married, Harvey suffered a sinking spell and had severe chest pains. We called my father in the middle of the night. Dad is a physician. He examined Harvey and told him he had a heart problem. He instructed Harvey to "take it easy" and cut out all strenuous activity. This meant giving up handball and tennis. It 'also made a serious dent in our sex life Harvey was so afraid of dying while having sex that he was impotent most of the time. Two weeks ago Harvey caught the flu. My father was out of the country so we called another doctor. He was terribly sick and the doctor put him in the hospital. In a few days he was feeling better and decided to have a complete physical while he was there. Harvey was seen by six different doctors and received a perfect bill of health. When he asked specifically about his heart problem he was told that his heart is perfect. This so baffled us that the following week we flew to the Mayo Clinic and Harvey was seen by a top cardiologist. The report was "no heart problem, and no evidence that there ever was one." When my husband thinks of the years he has wasted "being careful" he could wring my father's neck. I'm plenty burned up about it, too. What should be done? Eight Years Kapat Dear Eight: Nothing. The original diagnosis was worth what your husband paid for it. It's always a good idea to get another medical opinion: THE BETTER HALF Even a doctor who isn't related can be wrong. Dear Ann Landers: This is for Green Around the Gills, who was upset because the "crudest, loudest-mouthed broad in the office" had snagged a man while she and her ultra-feminine friends remain "unclaimed." Why do so many women feel men are prizes to be trapped by chicanery and cunning? A few years ago I realized my first obligation was to myself and I've been making steady progress in a field long considered a man's job. I've been called blunt, aggressive, and even obnoxious. Others have described me as honest, ambitious, and highly motivated. My husband says I'm "sweet." Not because I'm ultra-feminine, but because he knows I respect and admire him and I need his love and the emotional support he provides. This does more for his male ego than any amount of feminine submissiveness. Perhaps "Green" will make someone a wonderful wife, but I happen to believe that the top quality man appreciates a woman who has something more than curves, a soft voice, and projects phony helplessness. Happy Being Dear You: Let's hear it for the honest, ambitious and highly motivated woman. Thanks for a good letter.
