Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 1HE LETHBRIDGI HER AID Friday, Moy Wpmen Not Pacing: Men Due To Less Commitment SASKATOON (CP) In edu- cation, women are not keeping pace with men because they do not have as strong a commit- ment, says Barbara Miller, who has just finished a year's re- search on the role of women through the University of Sas- katchewan extension depart- ment. "For all there has been a dra- matic growth of numbers of women going to college, 40 per cent are dropouts after two she told a meeting of a return-to-learning w o m e n 's committee. Mrs. Miller said there arp three main areas of concern for women: education, marital status and age. "Educational institutions do not make provisions for women's special sup- porting a student-husband, rais- ing a family, need for day care so thev are discour- This forever inhibits them and sets up anxieties which com- pound their efforts when they try to take part in activities out- side the home, she said. The return-to-learning com mittee was formed a year ago to help women desiring further education to find out what they needed, where to get it and how to manage their home situation LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By SIMON RUDDELL UBC SHOULD Lethbridge have a Youth Hostel? I think it should because although the concept of a youth hostel is re- latively new hi Canada, it is be- coming increasingly important each summer. Little has been done so far. Each year young people are earning more mon- ey and during the summer many of them travel across Canada exploring this huge country to which they belong. This rapidly spreading urge is one which should be encour- aged in such an extensive land, both for the benefit to the in- dividual and the nation as a whole. The more each province knows about both its immediate and not so near neighbors the better the chance of national unity, and I feel that only by travelling across Canada can one attain tolerance and under- standing. It broadens our hori- zons and most people can do with that. Lethbridge, whether we like it, or not, is directly involved in this situation. Many people pass through it and I have talk- ed with several Vancouver youths who hitch-hiked through here last summer, all of whom were travelling on a shoestring which allowed little for expen- diture on a motel room. What they need and would consider adequate is a simple arrange- r ment whereby they may sleep and eat just that. They ex pect the plainest surrounding and are prepared to accept th rules of such an establishment providing they are reasonable The cost of setting up a hoste need not be prohibitive if an pi building is converted, cooking facilities and two dor mitories which they must be prepared to clean and leave in a condition fit for others. This is common practice whic works well in tire European hostels. Obviously there must be time limit to the1 length of sta and this will eliminate thost seeking a cheap billet for th summer, and restrict oppor (unities for drug trafficking The hostel must be open to po lice inspection at all times; in Vancouver failure to do so has been the mistake of one hoste which is now commonly re- garded as a haven for drug users. Problems will arise, b u aren't they worth tackling i. order to provide shelter an companionship for the adven turpus youth of Canada? (The views voiced In the above colnmn do not neces sarily concur with (ither those of The Herald or Lei- ster's, but are a reflectioi of the student opinion.) TOP TEN LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERS!

(CP) it must be brought from the, doesn't speak English. His na Female Council Of Seven Years Steps Aside ROTZO (AP) Italy's only municipal matriarchy is coni- ng to an end. The members of the all-women council, which1 has run this ttiE- jer town in the Alpine foot- hills since 1964, are stepping aside and letting the menfolk take over again in elections Sunday, June 7. The women had a self-satis- fied look as they prepared to Mary Louise Bearhead has been in a coma since 1963, but the mother of four Indian children is not forgotten by her 13-year- old son Larry. He is the only one old enough to remember his young woman who smiles at him from a photograph stored with family treasures in a tin box. The' 10, Bar- bara, 9, and Shirley, told their motto1 won't be com- ing home for a while. They re- sume their daily routine and prayers. Mrs. Bearhead, injured in an automobile accident, has been in Charles CamseU'Hospital in Edmonton since Oct. "Their father died a year after the says Eliza- beth Paul, 70, mother of Mrs. Bearhead. "He was struck by a car on a highway near Stony Plain." A nurse from the hospital oc- casionally visits' the family's four-room house, nestled in a creekbed on the Paul's Band In- dian reserve, 30 miles west of Edmonton, to report on Mrs. bin." Larry takes care of the fuel and the other children help with chores. Mrs. Paul has been una- ble to work since she suffered a stroke about six years ago. Mr. Paul, unable to perform heavy work, shops for groceries at Duffield. Supplementing the family in- come is a small garden in which enough potatoes and other vegetables are raised to last the winter. The Bearhead children catch a bus each day to Stony Plain where they attend a "white" school at the insistence of their grandmother, who feels the youths must receive education for a better chance in the "white man" world. Everybody in the house is tri- lingual except Mr. Paul, who I live torgue is Stony, and he ac quired Cree from his wife. Bui English has remained a mys ;ery to him. "He got his French name from being baptised into the Roman Catholic Church, but hi doesn't speak that language ei Mrs. Paul said. "We thought we were past the child-rearing stage a few year before Mary's accident. But while it was rough for the firs few years when the kids wen small, it looks as though we'r going to have someone to loo after us now." itep out of office. Bearhead's condition. Carla Slaviero, the spinster schoolteacher mayor, and the seven farm women and village lousewives of her council con- tend they put Rotzo back in business. Five centuries of men's government had left the town in debt and disorganized. The women raised taxes arid managed to settle a 30-year dis- pute with neighboring Valfastico over division of the rich timber- ing rights in the pine forests of the surrounding hills. Eotzo's economic troubles be- .gan when the two communi- ties were separated and Rotzo got the short end of the timber rights. And the report is always the same. Mrs. Paul communicates1 the message in Cree to her hus- band, Pierre, before the chil- dren are told. HELP WITH CHOKES "We don't lack too much for says Mrs. Paul.

(AP) Midwives are making a come- sack in the United States. But this time they are nurses and they deliver babies in hospitals not homes. Pretty, 28-year-old Mary Sue Wilson is helping lead the pack, "With so many women hav- ing babies, doctors are having trouble seeing them she said. "This is the reason for this new specialty." Miss Wilson is a nurse with a year of post-graduate study spe- cializing in nurse midwifery. Now she's qualified to work under the supervision of a doc- tor, tat only with patients whose physicians expect them to have normal deliveries-. The daughter of a Fort Lau- derdale doctor, Miss Wilson works at the University of Flor- ida Medical School hospital. Miss Wilson takes a hand early in pregnancy and sets up regular visits with her patients until they deliver. All 41 births she has attended have been at hospitals. Generally, Miss Wilson deliv- ers the child with the help of one regular ndrse. "If anything goes wrong, we are instructed to call the (toc- tor she said. How do patients react? "Some patients are happy to get a woman because they feel a woman would have more em- she said. "Others are modest and like a woman for that reason. ''But mainly women like to have a nurse-midwife because she can give more attention. A lot of them seem to relate bet- tor to women, anyway. Large Print Text Books For Ontario TORONTO (CP) The On- tario department of education and the Canadian National Insti- tute for the Blind are cooperat- ing in providing large-print text books for the province's more than 200 partially sighted school children. Partially sighted children are those who, even after correction or treatment, still have a vision problem which interferes with their learning. These children get large-print editions of the texts used by their classmates who have regu- lar vision. The department of education pays for the special books throughout Ontario, except in When he registered for work in a communal farm in Tel Aviv, Mr. Frantzen had a choice of three kibbutzes. "I chose one near the border thought, it would be more ex- citing." He had his fill of excitement. "Arabs would come over the rarder at night and plant mines in the fields. The men would go out to plow the fields and some- times they'd get blown up right on Iheir tractors." Miss Brown said people were being lulled every day near the irm. "When we were there, four Arabs were killed one night in our fields. The Israelis thought .hey were planting mines, so Is- raeli soldiers shot them." The contfast in farming meth- ods was also severe, both agreed. "We were seeding with big drills, and 20 kilometres away there would be an Arab plowing with mules." They loved Israel, but Miss Brown said "we came to that point where we thought we wer- en't accomplishing anything." They returned here for the wed- ding at Easter. They have only one regret: that they've traded a compara- tively care-free life in the sun- shine for "all those civilized worries about charge accounts, cars and finding a house to live FIRST MUST CONSENT BAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania A government white paper introduced in Parliament by Second Vice-President Rash- isi Kawawa proposes that a man may take a second wife with the consent of, the first.
