Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Have you seen his wife? Premier's wife gets involved By CI.ENN1S Z1LM EDMONTON (CP) "lie's a nice guy, but have you ever seen his 'Dial's llic kind of remark Jeanne o u g h c c cl clocsn'l want anyone to make and to ensure they don't, she no longer sticks a scarf on her heal "lo nui down to he cor- ner store for a loaf of bread." "I don't feel 1 can do that said the tall, strik- ing blonde who is Uie wife of Peter Loughced, premier of AlberUi. Mrs. Lougheed, who can look great in a knitted pant- most women over 30 can't manage was replying to the question: Is there anything you dislike about being the premier's wife? While she says she's ready to take on the responsibilities inherent in being the wife of a public figure, the also intends to retain her individuality. "When we marry and have a family, we land in a job o( our own choosing. We have a responsibility to do Lhat job well." When you're married to a public figure such as a pre- mier, then the responsibilities are larger, she said in an in- tcrvicw. For one thing, you have more of the running of a home because the home must be the kind of serene place that allows the premier to get away from business. UPHOLDS INDIVIDUALITY However, she .said she doesn't think a woman should give up all her own interests to look after those of her hus- band and family.

When she's settled into her house litre after the move from Calgary, she said she hopes to resume singing and j dancing as well as lake up painting or lake some classes at university. "Right now, I'm so busy moving in lhat I haven't been able to plan what I'm going lo she said while pulling faces at a photographer. He continued to snap the pictures while she leaned grimacing into the lens. And while she likes some private life, Mi's. Lougheed also enjoys taking part in pub- lic functions. She often goes with the pre- mier to openings and appears on the platform with him. Progressive Conservative party organizers credit her personality with winning a lot of support during last years election campaign. KNOCKliD ON DOORS During the campaign, In which what was called the Lougheed team upset the 36- year-old Social Credit govern- ment, Mr. Lougheed was busy touring the province. To fill the gap in his own riding, Mrs. Lougheed and her son, Steve 16, campaigned for him. "We tried to stay away from the organizational level, ex- cept to call at headquarters and let those who were work- ing know how much we appre- ciated them." She and Steve made the rounds, knocking on doors, handing out pamphlets and meeting the voters. She esti- mates she introduced herself to more than people. "It's fascinating when you get involved. You keep saying 'Lei's do just one more block.' Steven is the oldest of the four Lougheed children. The others are Andrea, 12, Pam 10, and Joe, 6. A natiye Albertan, Jeanne Eslelle Rogers was born in Forestburg, about 70 miles southeast of Edmonton, in 1929.

How- ever, poor health and re- peated attacks of bronchitis when her children were small put an end to any notions of a singing career. She also studied ballet and modern dancing.

As a reasonably balanced, fairly content queen who j J doesn't care for closets, I take issue with "Family Man." He's only kidding himself.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: can be done about an ex- brother-in-law who sends me hate cards for every occasion, This person is no kid. lie's 70 years old. His recent contribu- tion to my mental health was a birthday card. The centerfold pictured an angry gorilla in the act of destroying the world. The message: "Today is your birthday, but why worry about a mistake that happened so long His valentine greeting was another tasteless horror, On the cover was the statement, "When I think of ynu T lose con- trol." On the inside was a picture of a little dog with a chag- rined look. The caption under the dog's picture was, "U you don't believe me, you should see the nig." This morning I received another special occa- sion, just a dig: "Cheer it said, "No man is a (otal fail- ure. You can always serve as a bad example.'1 Is there a law against this sort of harrassment?

Phone 327-2331 a recent interview broad- on Radio London, a BBC station, Mrs. Bourgaize said her father, now BO, remem- bers seeing the first while set- j tiers arrive in their part of vS'as- katchewan. The first reaction of one of her aunts lo the newcom-11 ers, she recalled, was that they all looked alike and "smclled like cattle." Mrs. Bourgaize herself spoke only Cree until she was and during her childhood the ul- Umate threat used by parents when children misbehaved was "the white man will get 3Tou." On her first visit to North Bat- tleford, Sask., the nearest town to her reserve, she was fright- encd of ail the whites -she ssw. Later, however, she adopted a j full Western way of life, even j working nights as a bunny girt in London, Ont., for "pure snr- and to enrn money to; train as a teacher. Nevertheless, she feels that while Canadian culture misses out on many more i richly fulfilled by Ihe Indian j way of life, which she sees as "sn extended family system 1 where everybody means a lot to you." The reserve system she sees as a "pseudo-Indian culture'1 which cuts Indians off from other Canadians. Reserves also were "usually the bits of land which nobody else wanted." The Indians were the ones who had to learn about the white man and not the other way roimd, sho .said, because "the white man was not con- cerned about the Indian, only in terms of getting his land and j keeping it, so Indian people j have adapted themselves in j order to survive to a great ex i tent." But she also said thai a few j years ago, Canadian Indians j wanted to integrate at a time when the whites wouldn't have i (hem. Now integration is gov- ernmenl policy, backed up by j j financial assistance programs, j but the Indians have decided I they want to retain their oun I distinctive culture even if it means a brand of apartheid. i j Asked on Radio Ixjndon she sees future of the Cana- i than Indian. Mrs. said she hopes "he will regain j his pride in himself, ami that he will be able to go when ever he wants in this world and i be able to make a go of it." The idea would be for Indians i not to be dependent on the re- serves, to live wherever (hoy want "and still remain Indian lo j their outlook." I TENDERFLAKE 1 Ib. pkgs. E. D.
