Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Trucking manager prizes femininity EDMONTON (CP) - She's all for feminity, doesn't believe in women's lib, and discreetly disappears if the men she works with want to tell dirty jokes. All the same, she's no shrinking violet and will drive a truck in an emergency-"although not for two or three years now, and I've never driven anything larger than a one-ton truck." Judy-Lynne Schonert, 28, is a slim pretty brunette who looks slightly incongruous in her role as general manager and secretary-treasurer of GT Express Ltd., a city cartage firm. But it becomes apparent when she begins to talk about trucking that looks are deceiving. She has been elected to the board of directors of the Alberta Motor Transport Asso-c i a t i o n (AMTA)-The first woman to be so elected-and is convinced she gained the post on the basis of knowledge, not looks. "A lot of people who agreed to nominate me had never seen me. "I think they expected me to be 55, four feet high and three feet wide." UNPAID AT START Mrs. Schonert, mother of four, entered the trucking business about five years ago, when her husband Terry  started the firm. She says she started "as slave labor ... as one of those interfering wives" and that for the first three years she worked without salary. Her husband has been get-ing out of the trucking business gradually "and into real estate." "He comes in once in a while when I'm in a real bind," Mrs. Schonert said. She doesn't feel that her children-aged nine, seven, three, and 14 months-have suffered. "We have a housekeeper who comes in during the day, and my evenings are pretty well solely for the kids." "We're a closely-knit family," said Mrs. Schonert, adding that she and her husband "haven't much of a circle of friends-other than business associates." HAS FEW PROBLEMS She said she has little problem working as a woman in what is often regarded as a man's world. "I find guys will ask me subtle, leading questions to see if I. know what I'm talking about. But I'm used to that. "I've always been treated with respect. I've never run into trouble with them yet." Mrs. Schonert has little sympathy for women's lib. "I'm not about to go out and burn my brassiere. If I did, no one would know I'm a woman," she says with a wry smile. "I believe in feminity. I think we're the only express company in the city that doesn't hire women truck drivers." Mrs. Schonert said: ''We transport a lot of heavy, dirty stuff," adding that any time the firm used women to do man's work "it hasn't worked out." "I don't like to invade male territory," she said. "If the guys want to sit at the back of the lunch table and tell dirty jokes, I make myself scarce because that's their right." *$n and out of L Receiving guests for the OES home fund tea, Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. in Southminster hall, will be Mrs. Irene McDougall, worthy grand matron; and Harold Gulliver, worthy grand patron of Alberta; Miss M.

Preceding the meeting, a group of volunteer young people, the Zion League, were individually presented with commemorative awards for their service to the CMHA. Reports were received from several committees serving with the association, and the upcoming television program, | The Family, was discussed. Until recently, the local association has continued its work in the community and surround' ing area through funds made available by the United Appeal, and various fund raising projects conducted by its mem-I bers. A new development has been the withdrawal of the organization from United Appeal, and plans are being made to secure finances through projects 1 alone. health, who spoke on organizational changes within mental health associations. He said attempts were being made to make the best use of professional people in various fields, and to "mobilize manpower other than the medical." Dr. Helton explained that a push was being made to involve the family of the mentally ill, and to keep the patient in a home environment. He added that he hoped to see a time when the mentally ill would no longer be separat* ed from the physically ill a stigma which has been fought for a long time. Guidance clinics are also a hope for the future, he said, as well as day care centres and sheltered workshops.

The series, which lasts for six weeks, is sponsored by the Canadian Mental Health Association of Southern Alberta. The first of the half-hour films is entitled The Family and will be shown at both 4 p.m. and at 8 p.m., (All films will be shown twice on Mondays and Tuesdays - during the afternoon and evening). The Family, stresses the fact that the old ways of coping with family life problems are not always adequate to meet the demands of the pace of society today. Some new concepts of the family such as those proposed by Alving Toffler in his book Future Shock, are also con sidered. However, the key to the whole series is a positive approach to healthy living. The second film entitled The New Married Pair, which will be seen Tuesday, deals with the conflict between the Holly' wood version of marriage ver sus the real thing. It also deals with such problems as intimacy and anxiety, sexual adjustment, roles of husband and wife and the in teraction of family, parent, and friend. The 12 films follow the pattern of family life described by E. M. Duvall in her book Fam ily Development. It traces the family from its beginning where emphasis is placed on husband and wife learning to adapt to one another, to cope with children and problems of early education, teenagers, to the final development of the family when the children have left home and husband and Sat., March 24 and Sun., March ?5 Yates Memoral Centre - 7 30 p.m. Adul'i $2 Studenti %] Iickt'li Or.
