Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
- THE LETHBRIDGE HIRAID - Wednesday, March 10,1*71 Parties expected for an Ottawa social scene First newlyweds settled in Canada's official residence. 24 Sussex Drive OTTAWA (CP) - Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his 22-year-old bride, Margaret, are the first newlyweds in the old stone mansion at 24 Sussex Drive since it became the official residence for Canadian prime ministers in 1950. It remains to be seen how the new chatelaine, said to have a flair for fashion and cooking, will put her stamp on her new home. It has changed little since the Lester Pearsons left in the spring of 1968. There is speculation, however, that the couple will add dash to the capital's social scene. Mr. Trudeau remarked while he was still justice minister in the Pearson administration that he liked parties and 24 Sussex would be a good place to have them. Rubella program under way in city Approximately 800 Leth-bridge 12-year-olds are receiving immunization, shots this week against rubella, or German measles. The program was begun in Alberta to safeguard girls against possible defects in unborn babies due to contracting the disease during pregnancy. Dr. William Watt, of the provincial health department said in Edmonton tWat medical authorities estimate that one of every 10 women who get rubella during their pregnancy will give birth to a deformed or stillborn baby. The vaccine is also available to adult females. The program is being confined in Alberta to 12-year-olds due to a shortage of vaccine and to the fact that 12-year-olds generally have not yet reached puberty. All 10 provinces are instituting rubella programs varying in age category depending upon the province. Parental consent is required before girls may be vaccinated. SPRING TEA and BAKE SALE SPONSORED.

If the staid old mansion on Sussex is transformed into a setting for swingers, however, the public may hear little about , it. /-� 1 The big grey house is shielded from the curious by trees. Mounties guard the entrance. a wrought-iron fence was added last fall after pro-abortion demonstrators forced their way past police to hold a sit-in on the lawn. For previous prime ministers and their wives a favorite sanctuary has been the second-floor quarters, where there is a family living room with a small kitchenette. The floor includes two main bedrooms with a dressing room between them. The third floor contains guest rooms. The live-in staff consists of household manager Tom Mac-donald, three maids' and two cooks. The prime minister's chauffeur lives elsewhere. An aide avoided saying whether Mrs. Trudeau could do as she liked about redecorating the mansion. But he said it has been some time since tMs was done. Under law the prime minister has to pay 15,000 annually toward the upkeep of Ms official home, but this is a small portion of the operating expenses Parliament allots it. The house was built in 1868 by Joseph Merrill Currier, an MP and lumberman who called it Gorphywsfa, a Welsh nam.? meaning "haven of rest." His heirs sold it in 1902 to Senator W. C. Edwards who willed it to a nephew, Gordon C. Edwards, from whom the government obtained it for $140,000. For a long time it was rented to the Australian government as the residence of its high commissioner. In 1950 the government spent $550,000 on renovations and made it the official home of the prime minister-then Louis St. Laurent. The St. Laurents lived there for seven years, the John Wef-enbakers for six and the Lester Pearsons for five. Olive Diefenbaker had modern laundry equipment installed and Maryon Pearson converted the basement recreation room into a toowplace of Canadian* in 1967.

Where there are problems in casting clay figures into plaster, Mrs. Shreier takes over. She said her students could handle the chiselling and pouring involved, but there isn't time in the weekly two-hour classes. Mrs. Shreier suggested that the group try making masks and heads because she thought that "the head is what they were most familiar with-it turned out they knew their hair." She sees her role more as that of a technician than of a teacher. She believes her class is the only such venture in Canada and hopes more artists will be asked or volunteer to give such classes. One problem is financial. Municipal art centre artists have been subsidizing the class. All-female conference on sexuality NEW YORK (Reuter) - About 500 young women gyrated to the music of an all-female rock band during the weekend after a series of discussions of living with men, sexuality and lesbianism. "No Men Allowed" proclaimed a sign at the entrance to the women's liberation conference held at Columbia University. Men were excluded from the two-day event which some 1,000 women are attending because "they inhibit women and dom-nale them" a conference spokeswoman said. Men staffed three free-child care centres set up by the conference. About 20 men looked after some 100 children. love is... .. writing a poem for her. c�PfitH lWt tOi ANCdtS riwit FINAL 3 DAYS LaKAY'S LADIES' WEAR LTD. DOWNTOWN STORE ONLY 712 4th AVE. S.
