Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta It - THI ItTHBRIDOl HERALD - Saturday, March 27, 1*71 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor TTHE struggle of women to gain a foothold in the affairs of the country is evident in somewhat diversified tactics. In the past week, two women's meetings with diametrically opposed methods pointed out that there is a right and a wrong way of achieving your goal. The first meeting was a woman only type at the U of L, featuring Jeannie McGuire of the Women's Liberation Movement in Regina. The meeting gained acclaim in both provincial and national press, not for its presentation nor its noteworthy remarks, but simply because there was movement - right into the women's washroom. Instead of allowing a young male to remain on the premises and being unable to have him evicted, the female body simply got up and left to the only place he couldn't enter-the women's washroom. A more childish and immature approach I can't imagine. For a part of a body who continually decries the 'men only' clubs, it didn't do much to show a bit of leadership in desegregation. The move into the washroom was too reminiscent of 10-year-olds forming their own secret club "but you can't belong to it." The second meeting was held this week by women members of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce. Instead of wanting their own section within the male body, the women are ready to take their place as rightful members on action committees. They acknowledged that lack of participation so far has been due to their own lack of initiative and not because the men did not accept them. Areas of pollution, health and business are of main concern. They would like to see a workshop or one-day seminar set up for both male and female chamber members, to acquaint them with chamber functions and procedure. Surely this is the right track to take-Togetherness and not segregation. Women can't work for women's rights; men can't work for women's rights. But everybody has to work together to utilize each individual's potential. ? ? ?

Conditions on Indian reserve differ according to region Temptations removed from would-be dieters EDMONTON (CP) - When the cafeteria line comes to a stop beside the banana cream pie, it's often responsible for the extra weight on the waistlines of would-be dieters. But at the Misericordia Hospital cafeteria, those playing the count - the - calories game can go directly to the diet line. They do not pass the high-calorie foods and do not collect those extra 200 calories. The idea originated with the hospital's director of food services, Edith Hughes, who was under doctor's orders to reduce. She then started noticing that a lot of staff on diets brought their own lunches instead of using the hospital's cafeteria. She decided this was Youth hostel plans tours for summer The Canadian Youth Hostels Association, Mountain Region will meet in Calgary to establish a Youth Hostel Cycle Touring Club. A club of this nature would involve city day tours, country day tours, long distance tours, and would provide many advantages for mem-' bers. Some of these advantages would be free publicity, free hall usage, printing of brochures at cost, equipment purchases for members, use of youth hostels, grants available for cycle trailers and cycle racks for autos, cycle membership file records kept by secretary of CYHA, and the CYHA secretary available to answer telephone regarding cycling information and requests. Suggestions for the club which have come from the CYHA are that all cycle club members be CYHA members, that they pay a yerly membership fee, that the club pay for third party insurance for all members, and that the club rent bicycles to beginners, and that the cycle club establish crests, blazers, and other such regalia. The meeting will be held April 13 in the Canadian Youth Hostel hall in Calgary. a good place for dieticians to put their knowledge to work right in their own environment. "One shy fellow came up to me recently and said: "This is the best thing you've ever done in this hospital. I've lost 15 pounds.' " The foods on the diet line are attractive and nourishing: French onion soup, broiled open - face cheese-and-tomato sandwiches, tossed or chef's salad with ham and turkey, fresh strawberries, sherbet, jelly, baked ham, small steaks, french - cut green beans, turnips, fresh fruit cup are some of the foods displayed. Absent, but not noticeably so, are the tempters: cream soups, french fried potatoes, shepherd's pie, gravy, pies and cakes. A large ideal height-and-weight chart is posted near the beginning of the line. As interest grew, short talks were arranged for staff so that questions could be answered, Mrs. Hughes said. As well, a weight reduction' program was put into effect for patients in the hospital if their doctors referred them. Family members were invited to participate in the educational talks. The foods prepared for the diet line make up about 100 of the 3,200 meals served daily rt the hospital to patients and staff. "It is hoped through this program that more people will become aware of the importance of wieght control and good food habits," Mrs. Hughes said. EDMONTON - Discrepancies in Indian reservation conditions were brought out at the first National Native Women's Conference held in Edmonton this week. D e 1 e g a t e s from different provinces got together to form discussion groups to compare their problems with those of other parts of the country. Mary Moulton, delegate from New Brunswick, spoke of relatively good conditions on her reserve including vocational training for some of the Indian high school-drop-outs. "The rate of high-school drop-outs on our reserve (near Perth-Andover) is very high," said Miss Moulton. She attributed this to discrimination by teachers and students in 'white' schools against the Indian students. Reservations, near Cold Lake, Alberta, do not have any sort of vocational training for drop-outs, according to Mrs. Aldina Piche, an.Indian woman living in Cold Lake. Schools on either the Cold Lake or N.B. reserves do not extend past elementary grades, after which the students are HOUSEHOLD PET THAT LIKES DOG FOOD - David Moran holds forth one of household pets, a green iguana named "Doggy Dog Lizard," in St. Louis. The five-i reptile acquired its name because of its love of dog food. Writing prize to girl with no hands bused to the nearest town for school completion, or are boarded out in other cities in the province. Power, plumbing, and heating facilities are available in the N.B. reserve, but this contrasted sharply with conditions prevailing in Cold Lake. "We have no sewage facilities, no heating facilities, and have only had electricity for two years - we are only four miles out of Cold Lake," said Mrs. Piche. Recreational facilities for youth are present on the N.B. reserve, but are very limited, according to Miss Moulton. "There are no facilities provided for our youth on the reserve, (Cold Lake) and all they have to do is hitchhike into town, and be a nuisance to the public," Mrs. Piche told the other members of the discussion group. Mrs. Piche stated that most women on the reserve would like to be able to stay home and care for their children properly, "but with things as they are now, it is virtually impossible," she added. "We never know where our children are." Film crew tapes meet for cabinet The National Native Women's Conference held in Edmonton this week will make up part of a film which is to be presented to the federal cabinet. Presentation of the film will be by the citizenship branch of the department of the secretary of state "in order to hopefully expand the resources of the branch," according to Mrs. Gwen Iveson, director of the film. Other members of the freelance crew are Bill Paquegnat, sound; Andy Ormsby, photography; and his assistant, Kent Niason. "The film will be seen only by government officials, or it could possibly be shown on the CBC television network," said Mrs. Iveson. Mrs. Piche felt that "the love of an Indian woman for her child is no less than that of a non-native person, but with the situation on the reserve as it now is, we spend so much time existing, that we haven't found the time to live yet." Determination overcomes discrimination EDMONTON-"I'm 21 years of age, and still in high school, but I'm going to finish," were the determined words of Mary Moulton, New Brunswick delegate to the first National Native Women's Conference in Edmonton this week. Miss Moulton, speaking to a discussion group at the conference held in the Macdonald Hotel in Edmonton, said that discrimination in public "white' schools was the reason so many of her counterparts dropped out of high school, as soon as they became of legal age to do so. "Another reason, though, is that the incentive to complete schooling does not come from the parents," she said. "My father gets very angry with me." "He says that I was old enough to quit this (schooling) long ago, and should be out working." But this has made Miss Moulton even more determined to complete her last year of high school. "And I'm going to do it," she says. "This year, and my father doesn't believe me. He just doesn't believe that I'm going to get up on that stage and graduate."

When Myrna was brought to an Ottawa hospital her right arm was hanging by a piece of skin. Her left arm was completely severed but a quick-thinking nurse living nearby rescued the arm from the hay-field, packed it in ice and sent it along with the child. Myrna is remembered throughout her ordeal as expressing more concern about her younger brothers and sisters than about her own plight.

Banfield Toronto aeronautical engineer, Colin McLaurin, Myrna became the first child in the world to have two electrically-controlled arms fitted above the elbow. One problem still unsolved is the buzzing of the motors with every movement. Myrna finds the noise embarrassing, so she seldom wears her arms to school. She writes with her pencil tucked between her chin and right shoulder. When she doesn't wear her arms, pulling on boots or turning pages require help. Sometimes she arrives home from school with her coat unbuttoned because her classmates have forgotten to help. Wearing her arms at home, Myrna helps with the chores by looking after the younger children, drying the dishes and even baking cookies. In the summer, she can carry food to the calves in containers. Because she's a growing girl, the bones in her stumps continue to grow.
