Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ! - THE IETHBRIDOE HERAIO - Wednesday, March 31,1971 Women shunted into family law Queen's Counsel enters law against advice OTTAWA (CP) - Edythe MacDonald, now senior advisory counsel with the justice department, took law at the University of Manitoba against the advice of both the deans of women and taw. She was made a Queen's Counsel last year in Manitoba's centennial year, 12 years after being called to the bar there. "You have to be a lawyer for 10 years to become a QC and I was called to the bar 13 years ego," she said in an interview here. "So it wasn't exactly an Instant honor." She credits her parents with starting her on her career. They were determined that their only child would succeed, and stood behind her decision to take law. After an honors' degree in English and history, Miss Mac-Donald entered law school, where she won gold medals and the highest standing in the full course. "I had to work extremely hard," she said, "but then most people do if they want to get anywhere." She was the only girl in a Lethbridge woman to head provincial native body class of 40, but "I was never made to feel that I wasn't equal, never rejected." Miss MacDonald joined the justice department after articling in Winnineg. As senior advisory council, she is engaged in the preparation of legislation such as the Canada Elec- Mrs. Rose Yellow Feet was elected'president of the Voice of Alberta Native Women's Association at the annual provincial meet held in Edmonton.

She is enthusiastic about the Divorce Act. While it might be criticized for not going far enough, it was certainly making divorce "less oersonally devastating." During the Commons sessions Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Last May my husband asked me if he could wear one of my housedresses while painting the kitchen. He said it would be more comfortable. I said. "O.K." He did look awfully cute and I told him so. Ever since that time he has been wearing my dresses and wigs and makeup when we are alone. He has asked me to call him Linda when we "play girl friends," as he calls it. I can truthfully say. I don't mind. The only thing that bothers me is that he is prettier than I am. If we went out in public together he would get more whistles. Yesterday I read an article on sex deviation. It said men who enjoy dressing up in women's clothes are transvestites. I do not consider my husband abnormal. He is very manly in every way. He just happens to enjoy playing this little game. Is there anything wrong with it? I'd like your opinion-Happy Woman Who Loves Her Husband DEAR WOMAN: My opinion is of no consequence. The only thing that matters is what you think, and apparently you think it is just fine. If you and your husband enjoy "playing girl friends," it's nobody's business. Just make sure the doors are locked and the shades down. And say hello to Linda. *  � DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a boy 16 and miserable. I have terrible acne. For two years I've been going to a dermatologist but the acne is no better. My dad is sick of paying bills and I am sick of looking at myself. The other day some kid mentioned "sandpaper surgery." Can you tell me what it is? Will it help me? Is it expensive? Is it dangerous? Please, Ann, check this out with your experts and let me know.-Barney From Boise DEAR BARN: Sandpaper surgery (or abrasive planing) will not help a person who has active acne. It is useful only after the acne has been cured. This surgery removes the top layer of skin and with it the blemishes, pitting and scars. Planing is not dangerous when done by a competent dermatologist. In incompetent hands, however, it can be a mess. But this is true of any surgery. The price varies, depending on the doctor. A top - notch dermatologist in Washington who serves as one of my principal consultants charges $600. The operation can be performed in the doctor's office but it is advisable to have it done in a hospital. Remember this procedure is not for active acne. In your case, perhaps your doctor should try some type of radiation-ultra-violet or x-ray. she works long hours, sometimes remaining in her office "half the night." Miss MacDonald didn't like private practice where, she said, women are "shunted" into family law and land work. Be-aides, she added, she was ton softhearted to bill anyone who seemed poor. A WOMEN'S NEED DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - A Vanderbilt University psychiatrist says "women have a wish, or a need, to be held." Dr. Marc Hollender told the Dallas Southern Clinical Society, "some women will barter sex interest for the purpose of being held." Men, he said, don't feel the cuddling urge quite as strongly and usually interpret such advances as a desire for sex. National women's groups to decide on abortion TORONTO (CP) - National women's organizations have been asked to decide by April 30 whether they want references to abortion deleted from the Criminal Code. The decision to poll the organizations came out of a meeting this week of the National Ad Hoc Action Committee on the Status of Women in Canada, attended by 60 representatives of national organizations. Margaret Hyndmah, representing the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women, suggested that a clause be retained in the Criminal Code to deal with abortions per formed by unauthorized practitioners. But other delegates said the unauthorized practice of medicine is dealt with elsewhere in the code. The session was called to dis- cuss which of the 167 recommendations in the'report of the royal commission on the status of women should be given legislative priority. Most of the debate concerned the recommendation that all sections on abortion be removed from the code. LONGER LOOK TORONTO (CP) - Women's hair will be longer next fall and winter, predicts Toronto hair stylist Gus Caruso. "The long shag cut, the gypsy and lioness hairdos are in great demand now," he says, "but these styles have been around for three years. There's a transition coming about from today's hair styles. The shag hair style will be retained, for instance, but it will be longer.'

Phone 328-5115 Opposite The Downtown Public Library it** French women not what they used to be PARIS (AP) - French women are taller and slimmer than they used to be and have lower and flatter bust lines. These are some of the preliminary conclusions of a survey by the women's apparel industry. Compared with 10 years ago, the French woman under 35 is about a centimetre taller. She also has lost a centimetre from each of the vital statistics, bust, waist and hips. A centimetre is .39 of an inch. , Compared with 1900, the waistline is down by five centimetres, or 1.97 inches. Generally speaking, the survey said, the French woman has a rounder back, better developed shoulders, thicker ankles and longer feet than before. The survey quoted dress designer Pierre Balmain as describing "the most elegant" figure this way: height, five feet seven inches, and the bust, waist and hip respectively 3Wt 32% and WA. *$n and out of town Tail Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi held its Preferential Tea at the home of Mrs. Ethel Higgins.
