Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE U1HBRIDCE HERALD Friday, March 20, WO ivinct Marriage On The Rocks Say Women Panelists By JEAX SHARP Canadian 1'ress Women's t'tlifor TORONTO (CP) Men may be surprised lo hear it but mar- riage is probably doomed, sex roles must go and the women's revolution is under way. These were ideas presented during a panel discussion on women ir. the 70s at the lOtli annual meeting of the Grocery Products Manufacturers of Can- ada. Moderator Judy LaMarsh said it might come as a surprise to the audience of businessmen, but women in growing numbers and to a vaiving degree are be- coming involved in the revolu- tion. Miss LaMarsh is a Niag- ara Falls lawyer and former secretary of stale. S o 1 a n g e Chaput-TCo'and of Montreal said she has no! found it difficult to express herself as a human being, but to be ac- cepted as a political commenta- tor has not been easy. She is au- thor of several books on Quebec. ''Tliere must be a reassess- ment of a man's point of view toward the woman who is be- him.. she said. HOLIES QUESTIONED Montreal economist Amy Ticwlh said women's tradilinn.il is now redundant. Women trained to believe that marriage and the sewing circle represent a virtuous way of life arc now no; so sure. Marriage and careers may need te be changed even' 10 or 15 years, she said. It is ridicu- lous to expect someone who is 21 lo stay married to the same person for 40 years. Dorothy Curzon, a chartered accountant and radical feminist, supported the idea that all soci- ety must change. "There is an underlying as- sumption [hat human beings arc male. A woman must he defined ai other ami her relationship, and lack (hereof, to a man is spelled out hi Miss or Mrs." Adrienne Clarkson, Toronto television interviewer, said she feels male-female sterotypes must change. People must be able to act as individuals with- out liindrance by sex roles im- posed on them. LEESTiR'S MUSIC LTD.

Feminists Want Power In Magazine NEW YORK (AP) For 87 the Ladies' Home Jour- nal has been advising "never under estimate the power of a reman." Now 10 feminlsls me demanded that editor John Mack Carter live by the mollo. All day Wednesday Carter's ifth floor office was besieged >y women demanding tlial Car- er be replaced by a woman, hat he hire an all woman edi- orial and advertising staff and hat he allow them to put out fhe Women's Liberated Jour- al as a replacement for one ssuc of Ihe magazine. Carter said as the women smoked his cigars, sat in his hair and berated him that hey had a point but they could not have his job. The women said they had iingled out the Journal, which ias readers, because Is articles are "irrelevant, re- atiug and demeaning to Ihe vonicn of America." After the initial demonstra- ion, 12 feminists began negc- iating with Carter and several other editors. In the early evening it was announced that the group had wen offered a special eight page supplement in an upcom- ing issue and a special women's liberation column each month. They then went back into closed sessions. The demonstra- tors had vowed to stay "until all our demands are met." Some women employees at Newsweek filed a federal com- plaint against that magazine last week, charging that they were discriminated against. They said there was only one woman on a writing staff of 50 men. Never Too Old Says Mrs. Pliaris MRS. MARY PHARIS to graduate at 80 years By HAIULYN ANDERSON' IliTalJ Family Editor Ever had the idea Ihat you're too old to go lo school? Mrs. Man' Phaiis didn't. Therefore oil May 30 Mrs. Phaiis will re- ceive her bachelor of education degree in convocation ceremon- ies at the University of Leth- bridge. Mrs. Pharis by the way, will celehrale her 8'Xh birth- day on Saturday. faculty and staff of the U of L gathered in her honor Thursday in the faculty lounge to pay tribute to hei' "inspiration" complete with birthday cake and punch. And inspiring she is, as was evidenced by the number of young students who came forth at the reception Iwlh lo wish Mrs. Pharis a happy birthday and to remark on her amazing accomplishment. One student inquired if Mrs. Pharis would Iw available for tutoring, and another expressed doubts era1 the possihilily of her own degree by lime she is 83. Jlrs. Pharis said she didn'l have any doubts about her ven- ture back into the classroom. "I think that a person can do whatever ttey set Iheir minds to." Mrs. Pharis took her leaching training at Calgary Normal School, and taught school for many years. But she'd been out of the classroom for 30 years when she decided to take a couple of classes. ''I'd been tak- ing just two classes a year, and then here 1 was in my third year, so I decided I'd better get serious about it all. "My daughter, Gwen, remind' ed me last fall that if I failed a class I could pick an extra one up this spring. But I didn't. 1 haven't failed any classes, in fact my marks have gone she cdded with a chuckle. Mrs. Piiaris' daughter is Gwen Pharis Ilingwood, well-known Canadian playwright and adjud- icator, who now resides in Wil- iams Lake, B.C. Nol looking a day over 65, Mrs Pharis was a little flustered over the occasion. She was age- less in her obvious rapport with young and old alike. "I didn'l find it difficult to meet with Ihe other students, and 1 never met with a bit of antipathy. Sometimes they held back, but then I'm different, and I'd have to make Ihe first move." Mrs. Pharis is indeed differ ent. She is inspiring, and May 30 will be a day to remember not only for Mrs. Pharis bu fellow students and faculty as well. ar Jla Annual dance of Ihe Assoc- iate!

Mrs. Anderson said Canadian women are among th2 mosf-foi lunate in the world "because we have a choice." In underdeveloped nations, she said, if a woman has been lucky enough to be specially trained she is under tremendous pressure to use her ability be- cause of the shortage of trained people. She said it was no wonder modern women were confused about their role because Ihey were little better than chattels tor centuries. rnunicalion Is Import ant but the ndividualism of this society cre- ates insecurity and lack of so- cial support. In related studies quoted by Dr. Amint, If Ihe sense of be- longing was high, the level! of anxiety was low and vice versa. People who show love and recognition will have less prob- lems with their children. Dr. Anant said in answer to a question that sex education is the joint responsibility of schools and parents. If both do their part separately there is not the consistency that cluld- ren need. He also told of Ihe inade- quacy of mental instillations. People who are menially ill are alienated and feel lonely and unwanted. While in institutions these feelings increase. Every- thing is done for the patients and they lose all independence.
