Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Second showing tonight at Yates invests steal fashion limelight for spring By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor |F YOU thought you could turn in your pants outfits for spring, think again, that is if fashions shown at the Beta Sigma Phi fashion professional in their approach to the show each year. It's a shame the same can't be said for the men. A few laughs may brighten up the show, if that's what you're looking for but it gets a bit heavy as the evening wears on. Women may be able to laugh at the antics of male models, but if the organizers expect men to attend the show to see clothes, they will not appreciate their models being a source of amusement. It doesn't take a very timid man to back away from a new style if it isn't shown to its best advantage. There's little reason, for instance, why a man has to walk across a stage looking as though the footsteps were painted for bun to walk on. Men's wear is a serious business. Organizers did an excellent Job of matching ensembles with the models. Along with a full house audience in the Yates Centre, appreciation'was felt for a wool faille coat and dress in blush pink set off to its best advantage in the new longuette length. ... vested ensemble show Tuesday are any criteria. Pants team up with coats, vests, tops in gorgeous black and whites, elegant navies and bright pimiento reds. Leaning toward the casual and carefree fabrics, the' LetbbrMge shopper is not to be left behind in up-to-date lines of the fashion world. The fashion show is an annual event for the sorority. Typically the show features not only women's wear but men's wear as well. Models from tne sorority are obviously becoming more wide-brimmed and very feminine. Three piece outfits were a favorite choice. The envy of the diet set was directed to a bevy of bikini - clad models showing their British import suits. Scooter suite, knickers, a gaucho and peasant dresses appeared briefly but it takes youth, a aUm figure and good legs to wear these styles. The one gaucho outfit in black and white was striking but here again heighth and slim-ness are a must. Not to be omitted from the show were the hot. pants. In black vinyl, purple'suede and turquoise knits the hot pants proved once again that a look or trend is only as tasteful as the shape or size of the person wearing it. Male fashions too headed from easy, care polyester double knits to all wools. Tin blazer look ie still a popular . . . scooter suit Another favorite, in faille again, was a red jacket dress reminiscent of the 40s look, worn with black boots and black accessories. The longuette length was tempered by a front slit. Fortrels, orlon knits, wool double knits came on strong in wide cut pants and vests, ranging from hip length to below the knee.

Change in attitudes to women sought hy Roman Catholic group EDMONTON (CP) A group of 40 Roman Catholic women has asked their church to help change canon laws and customs that perpetuate the view that women are inferior to men. The Edmonton Catholic Women's Group said in a brief to the Canadian Catholic conference that women should be declared full and equal members of the Roman Catholic church in Canada with the same rights, privileges and responsibilities as men.

"To deny women the human rights enjoyed by men is to deny that women are fully human beings," the brief says. "The church does not treat women as fully human beings each of whom has, as has each man, individual talents, intelligence and capabilities. Rather, through archaic canon laws and customs, the church perpetuates the view that women are inferior creatures. "It reflects an ancient attitude that women are unclean and a source of temptation to men, particularly the celibate clergy." The brief said that Christ himself ignored the cultural and social taboos against worn en and in the early church women were deacons. The brief said that the sacra' ment of marriage demeans women by stating that wives must be "subject to their husbands." "Despite p i ou s platitudes from pulpits about -'the heart of the home' and lofty rhetoric glorifying the role of the sub missive, obedient wife, women know that their subjection within the closest of all human relationships destroys their human dignity." The brief said the Canadian Catholic Conference should make strong, immediate representations to the Vatican asking that all discriminatory bar riers against women be re moved. It also asked that the Cama--Study priests training and love is ., .admiring photos of his relatives.
