Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Women as priests? OLDS, Alia. (CP) An al- most equal number of persons, replying to a Roman Catholic survey on the status of women in the church, say they favor and they oppose giving women equal rights to become priests. Of 564 replies, 239 favored the equal opportunity and 240 were against such a proposal. Nudist says swimming in clothes silly ST PETERSBURG, F1 a. (Router) Miss Nude World walked into a Gulf Ireach motel here looking like many other pleasingly-proportioned young women ready for the sun and surf. She wore a bikini. But she didn't want to. "It feels much better to swim in the said Rosemarie Hess of Montreal. And, anyway, put in her hus- b a n d, Nude V.'orld is a is rather silly to put on an article of clo- thing just to get it wet, one that leaves white marks where the sun can't get through. That's why the two of them, along with Mrs. Hans Stein, ex- ecutive director of the Miss Nude World pageant, and 30 other nudists from the Steins' Four Seasons Nature Park near Hamilton, Ont., scurried to a nearby nudist resort for two days almost immediately after they arrived in Florida for a week's stay. They feel it's un- comfortable to wear bathing suits on the beach. Earlier, at the Cypress Grove nudist resort near Orlando, Rosemarie, 26, explained some people think just because every- one is walking around nude they have only one thing on their mind: sex. "Oh. she said. "A woman is far more appealing in a bikini or clothes than when nude. A bikini creates curiosity on what is hidden." CAN'T HIDE IT Mrs. Stein added: "There's nothing you can hide when you're nude. It shows you like you are." Rosemarie said a girl who shops for a sexy bikini so people will look is an exhibitionist. "A nudist is she added. Mrs. Stein is trying to set up a Miss Nude Florida contest as a preliminary to this year's Miss Nude World pageant. She will be visiting other nudist camps in the state. She has found, she said, that Florida is way behind Canada as far as camps are concerned. "They try to hide too much she complained. The trip to Florida Is Rose- marie's grand prize for winning the Miss Nude World title. Her other prize? Rosemarie smiled. "A new outfit. All women like clothes." It was noted that all nudists wear clothing at meal time. "It would be saic Rosemarie, "if someone spillec hot food in your lap." 71 were undecided and 1 did not Results of the survey were jresenlcd to the annual meet- ng of the Catholic Women's ..eague for the archdiocese o( Ddmonton, which consists of almost a third of central Alter- a. Kathryn Charest of Edmon- on said in the report that the urvey also showed that more ban half of those replying be- ieve there is discrimination in he church against women. She said the survey indicated hat women are assisting as ectors, church commentators, choir directors, ushers and dis- tributors of communion in about 40 per cent of the parishes. She said it is about time the demands of women wanting to enter the priesthood were rec- ognized, as an option as ac- ceptable as the traditional role if housewife and mother. Another question on the sur- vey asked whether respondents would accept a woman priest, to which 230 replied in favor and 212 were opposed. When asked whether the role of Driest could and should be per- formed by both men and women, 209 respondents were agreed and 224 opposed. In another report, CWL arch- diocesan president Ardis Beau- dry said there has been a con- certed letter-writing drive to opposed further liberalization of abortion laws. The cam- paign had resulted in about letters being written to federal members of parlia- ment. Mrs. Beaudry said CWL members must continue to let people know their feelings on abortion, and they should find out the stands on the issue of persons nominated to contest Federal constituencies. Gymnasium aids heart victims VANCOUVER (CP) Suite IB in the downtown Vancouver office building looks more like a small gymnasium than a reha- bilitation clinic, but the bicycle exercisers and moving tread- mill at the Lower Mainland Preventative Medical Centre are helping people who havo had or might have heart at- tacks. The conlre, opened last September and designed to re- turn victims of coronary heart disease to a full-functioning life, concentrates on n controlled ex- ercise, program, under the watchful eye of medical person- nel. Ann Landers FAILED TO CURE JOHANNESBURG. South Af- rica (Reuter) Two Indians were each fined here for pretending to have supernatural powers. They treated two sick women by taking them to a local cemetery where the women heard wails and screams which, they were told, were spirits demanding money. They paid large sums but re- mained sick. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am so furious I don't know what to do. I need your help. Last weekend we had a family reunio" Tile house was full of relatives and I was busy in the kitchen a good hit of the time. A 17-year-old nephew seemed to be hanging around our five-year-old daughter. I didn't give it much thought until later in the day when they both were missing. I started to check the rooms. Well, I caught the boy "playing doctor" with our little girl. She had all of her clothes off and he was examining her." I expressed my anger in unmistakable language. What burned me up more than anything was his casual attitude. "I was just messing he said. "What are you so excited He asked me to do him a favor and not mention the matter to his mother. So far I haven't said anything to anyone. My husband would thrash the boy within an inch of lu's life if he knew. I don't know what his own father would do. Am I making a mistake by keeping this to myself? Please give me some ad- vice, Ann. I'm very Louis Dilemma Dear Dilemma: When two little kids "play doctor" it's notliing to become alarmed a 17-year-old boy is no little kid. You should do two things. First, explain to your little girl that her body is private and she should not allow anybody to take liberties with it. Instinct her to tell you at once if anyone tries. Second, tell the boy's mother what occured. If he is making a practice of "massing around" with little girls his parents should take him for psychological testing and treatment if it is indicated. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You've said repeatedly in your column that an adopted child should be told early that he was adopted, that to do otherwise could cause serious emotional damage. The experts seem to have definite views on the sub- ject, but I've never heard an adopted child quoted on how he feels about it. My mother told me I was adopted when I was about four years old. She read me a story from a book about a "chosen" child and how much the mommy and daddy wanted him. When she finished reading I said, "That's a nice story but I'm not adopted." My mother said, "Yes you and that was the end of the discussion. 1 can't remember feeling upset or traumatized. It never made any difference to me. I never thought about it when I was growing up and I still don't. I am nearly 20 now and our family life is far from total sweetness and light. We disagree on religion, politics and sex but in a crisis everyone comes through. Deep down, we love and respect one another. These people who raised me are my parents in every sense of the word. They have taught me how to live and how to love. I can never thank them enough. I Child DEAR FRIEND: Thank you for a letter that is sure to touch the heart of every adoptive parent. I will not print the name of your city because thousands of adoptive parents would like to believe it was written by their child. Let's let them. -Tuesday, May 9, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Womens' lib in Russia gives femininity a chance MOSCOW (Reuter) Women's liberation in the Soviet Union has a completely differ- ent meaning from what it has in the West. In the West, It signifies get- ting the same treatment as men. But here, where women have long helped run the steam- rollers of the workers' state, it means having a chance to dress and act more like a woman. Some women in modern So- viet society think they may have the worst of both worlds. They have opportunities for equal work and pay but they must still carry on with house- hold chores, including standing n long shopping lines at the end of the day. An article on Soviet workers i a learned journal called Questions of Philosophy said women now account for one-half of the workers and office staff in the country. "Though they have won real 98th BIRTHDAY Mrs. Mary Danielson celebrated her 98th birthday on Sunday, with a family gathering. Originally from Spruce Hill, Minnesota, she came to Ca- nada in 1909, and has lived in the iethbridge area since 1954. Mrs. Danielson has one daughter, Mrs. Delia Van- Cleve of Taber, and four sons, James and Morris of Leth- bridge, John of Diamond City and William of Angle Mont, B.C. Mrs. Danielson is a resident of the Southland Nursing Home. Finby Pholo equality in social labor, this Is not always combined with real equality in family the arti- cle said. "Even in conditions of developed consumer services in the town, women have to devolo approximately double the time lo household chores compared to men." This means they have only half the free time enjoyed by men, who seem lo do little do- mestic work aside from occa- sionally pushing a stroller In tbs park. In fact, there are no "devel- oped consumer services" for ths ordinary Russian woman com- parable to those available to her Western counterpart. She still chafes under irksome shortages of pots, cosmetics, blankets or china, and faulty cleansing and repair services. And from the south comes tha news, says the newspaper Izves- tia, that girls have been protest- ing in numbers against a legal ban on hot pants.
