Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, March 30, 1971 - TH1 IETHBRIDOI HIRAID - 18 Native women fon the move now" By BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON Herald Staff Writer "The way I see It," says Rose Yellow Feet of the Lethbridge Friend ship Centre, "the native women are on the move now and nothing is going to stop them." Mrs. Yellow Feet was airing her reactions to the National Native Women's Conference and the Voice of Alberta Native Women's conference after returning from Edmonton, Sunday. The most urgent need for the women, according to Mrs. Yellow Feet, is leadership training, better education, workshops, and conferences where specific problems are discuss ed, and not "the minutes of the last meeting and other things like that." Mrs. Yellow Feet thought that the national conference was "very good for a first one. It was good that women were interested enough to come all the way from their homes all across Canada for a conference such as this." She stated that the way people respond through their appearance at a meeting shows the level of their interest in the matters to be discussed, "And they were doing It themselves, and not Just sitting and listening' to a tot of guest speakers." With regard to the provincial conference held the last OORP PRESENTATION - As part of the week-long activities of the Order of Elks, the ladies of the Royal Purple presented a total of $500 to worthy organizations at the Elks Hall Monday. From lower left, Mrs. Vincent Roth, Associate Royal Lady and Mrs. Walter Stewart, Honored Royal Lady and Mrs. W.

Gardner, Rehabilitation Society, $100 and Mrs. Doug Dunlop, Lethbridge Association for Mentall y Retarded, $200. Monetary support needed for home-school -The perennial problem of getting money for home and school associations was one of the topics dealt with by Peter Swan, former member of the Alberta Federation of Home and School Associations, according to William Torfasen, delegate to the recent Edmonton Conference of the Federation. ... letting him think he thought of it first. ftmtliiM \m IOS ANGEtES IMtS WINNER Mrs. Blanche Bond Victoria Mansions Was the lucky winner of QUEEN-SIZE PATCHWORK QUILT Which was made by the members of XI IOTA Chapter. The draw was made during the "Mad Hatter" Party on Tues-day, March 23, 1971. William Torfasen was reporting to the March meeting of the Lethbridge Federation of Home and School Associations Monday evening in Lake-view School. Mr. Swan told the conference that approximately $900 was spent annually on each student in the province. He speculated that an extra two dollars added to the student's fees or book rental fee would be a drop in the bucket, but would serve to finance the operations of the federation. If this were carried out, according to Mr. Swan, a lot more could be accomplished by the association locally, pro-vincially, and nationally. Mr. Torfason reported that all delegates to the conference felt that greater use of schools should be made as part of community programs. One suggestion made at the conference was that schools be used as hostels for transient youth in the summer months instead of standing idle for that length of time.. A bill was circulated among delegates which asks that the government financial grants to kinder gartens be evaluated. This bill is expected to be presented to government.

ACW officers part of the week, Mrs. Yellow Feet reported an attendance of over 200 delegates, with 175 of these being officially registered. "The time seemed to be so limited," she stated. Mrs. Yel low Feet felt that the women needed time to get over their feelings of inadequacy, and begin to participate'fully in dis cussions. "They all need to be trained to speak out and to air their differences, andproblems," said Mrs. Yellow Feet. "The women need the courage to be able to speak out." The reason for this feeling of inadequacy among the women, according to Mrs. Yellow Feet, was that "in school we were told when to speak, when not to speak, when to do things, and when not to,do things. This is why the women are so shy and timid in stating their feelings."

Care should be taken to speak clearly and distinctly. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I need some advice and I'm ashamed to talk to anyone. This wonderful girl and I have been engaged four years. We would have been married by now but I had to go into the Service. The thing that kept me going while I was in Vietnam was the thought that I would come home to Amy. Last night we were sitting on the sofa making wedding plans when this mangy old cat of Hers jumped on Amy's lap. She picked it up and kissed it IN THE MOUTH. I thought I'd pass out. Two minutes later the cat jumped off her lap and left the room. Amy nuzzled up to me and wanted me to kiss her. I couldn't. This could ruin our love life. I can't see myself kissing a person who has been kissing a cat. Ami I wrong? Is this as unsanitary as it seems? What should I do about it? It's causing a real problem between us. - Johnnie DEAR JOHNNIE: It is not likely that Amy will cateh anything from the cat - unless he has a communicable disease. Aside from the health aspects, however, it is a most unappetizing thong to witness. Tell Amy if 6he wants to kiss you, she'll have to stop kissing the cat in your presence. This is not an unreasonable request.    DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our daughter, 22, chums with long-haired kids. Nearly all of them are unemployed. She has not worked since September when she graduated from college. Although there are many things she could be doing she has decided to do nothing. Should a 22-year-old be pushed Into graduate school? Should her parents provide her with room and board and spending money? She never asks for anything. In fact, she spends very little. She took her last year of college in Europe and hitchhiked all over the continent and lived on practically nothing. (She is a lovely daughter. No trouble, really. What is your advice? - Every Dad Over 50 DEAR DAD: A 22-year-old who has been put through college should not be housed, fed, handed spending money and allowed to "do nothing." When you make no demands on this girl you contribute to her vegetation. No student should be pushed into higher education - college OR graduate school It then becomes a cop-out - postponing the facing of real life. My advice is to tell your daughter to work (a paid job or a voluntary one) and make some contribution to society. Service is the rent we pay for our space here on earth.
