Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE IFIH5RIDGE HERALD 1hundny, March 16, 1972 I V Just Jude By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Wnler Even if it is a rainy day. or if there is better to do. or if you'd like to pass Hie time till supper rolls let anybody read between the curly cues of your handwriting. He'll probably tell you you're an egotist. Not that this type of information spoils your quite the contrary. It only serves to balloon youi egotism and it becomes increasingly difficult to get down from the ego trip you are already on. Other deep dark secrets which you are trying to hide, are often revealed through your unfaithful hands and traitorous pen. it might be revealed you are prone to being secretive, or you tend to pessimism, and even in- stability concerning your future. Naturally, the good side is" always the best and stays in your memon much longer than those probably-not-true-anywa) nasty-isms. The one thing which might lead to an upsetting scene later on, is to be told you have an underlying fear of driving, and of cars. Now this really needn't be as unnerving as it was, except for the fact Mac (a friend way back from iittle school) and I are planning to travel to Windsor this summer. Not only do we have plans of driving down from the wonderful west and right into the glorious east, but we are going to do it in a Toyota. At this point. 1 must add, no one around here has faith in small cars. When, as the occasion lias arisen, we mention our plans to others, they are all in favor. Responding to the question, how are you going? brings on: 1) a pale complexion 2) a smirk 3) an outright laugh 4) you're kidding! Mac and I have laith in our little cars. We have built up our confidence and our will power, and shall not be dissuaded from choice of transport. We will take one (the choice being made with the flip of a coin) and will follow the mapped out route of many before us to the shores of Lake Erie. As sure of our vehicles as we are, we do admit to one great fault. The thought of freeways leaves us cold. Their existence was brought to our attention some days ago when a person ventured to say, "have you thought about to which Mac promptly replied saying, "is that like Scenic Following several lengthy dissertations on the perils of freeway travel, including the hazards of trying to manoeuvre a "car like you've got" at ter- rifying speeds, we have managed to overcome this unforeseen problem with all the wit and intelligence we could muster. Our journey will extend to a small town outside of Detroit, and a safe distance from the entangling arms of the freeway demon. A simple phone call for help will result in having Mac's father arrive on the spot to escort us, and the car, onto the freeway and destination Windsor. Besides having ironed out all of these minute details, we have also decided our first day of travel will take us to Thunder Bay, Ontario, quite easily. After ail, it's only nina inches from Lethbridge on the map. ST.

"Figures indicate that in Alberta between September, 1058, and June, 1971, the desig- nation of principal or vice-prin- cipal was held by less than four per cent of the female leaching force she wrote in the February issue of the Alberta Teachers' Association m a g a- zinc. "And tliis is a province where women make np CO per cent o! the teaching she added. Mrs. Ntxon, currently working toward her master's degree in educational administration, said there is no evidence to suggest women a re overt ly d iscrimi- nated against when they seek school administrative appoint ments. "Equally, there is no evidence that either the Alberta Teach- ers' Association or the school boards are doing very much to encourage women to apply for such FEW APPLY Numbers oi women in admin- istrative positions in the prov- ince have declired in th: 10 years, she writes. In 1901-62. women held 5.5 per cent ot school administrative positions, but by 1970-71, this figun dropped lo 3.6 per cent. Mrs. Kixon found that re- search info applications from males and females for such ap- pointments in Edmonton showed that, (tithough few women ap- plied, the of .successful applications wore higher for women than men. 'Women teachers have (hem- selves partly to bis me for the small percentage of school ad- ministrative appointments they hold in Die province. Very few women appear to apply for these appointments." The reasons women teachers were relucts nt to apply wer e mainly the "traditional atti- tudes." Even in choosing teach- ing as a profession, many 1609 9lh Aje.

They might further be drained if there children and few working molhers were immune lo feelings of guilt that they not meeting the traditional uximan's role in the home. It also was traditionally ac- cepted by society that a wife's job most not be as "important" as her husband's, so she might not apply for positions "for the sake of family harmony." "It must be added that many women teachers probably do be- lieve that school boards prefer to appoint nvjn to school admin- istrative prGit.ions. This belief undoubtedly c o n t r ibutes to women teachers1 reluctance to apply." Mrs. Nixon said women them- selves must ombat the leth- argy engendered by these tradi- tional atiludes. As well, female administrators must encourags women teachers with leadership potential to seek jobs. BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12th SI.
