Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HFP.AID Wednoiday, November 1, winy Women far outnumbered By SCOTT BUTTON Canadian Press Staff Writer Women once again will be far outnumbered by men when the next session of Parliament set- tles down to business. Only five Lib- erals, a New Democrat and a Progressive lie seated in the 264-member House of Commons. The five were the only win- ners among 71 women candi- dates competing in the gener- al election. Elected from Quebec, a prov- ince which will send a woman to the House of Commons lor the first time, were three Lib- llorin in the rid- ding of Louis Herbert, Jeanne Ssuve in Montreal Ahuntsic and Monique Begin in Montreal St. Michel. Tlie other women elected ware Progressive Conservative Flora MacDonald, a landslide winner in the Ontario riding of Kingston and the Islands, and New Democrat Grace Maclnnis in Vancouver Kingsway, the only woman to sit in the last Commons. CREDITS LIBERALS Miss MacDonald, 46. gave Prims Minister Pierre Trudeau and Liberal finance minister Edgar Benson some tongue-in-cheek credit for her rictory.' "Mr. Trudeau did me a great [avor by p-ocrastinatmg so long about the date of the she said in an interview. "It gave me more lime to put my organization together. It was a big asset." She said that Mr. Benson, who decided against seeking re- elecuon in the Kingston and the Islands riding, helped her cause because his "mishandling" ol the economy while finance min ister swung many voters over to the Conservatives. Miss MacDonald is former executive secretary of the na- tional Progressive Conserva- tives, an executive director of the Committee for an Indepen- dent Canada and a political science instructor at Queen's University FROZEN FOODS Do not allow frozen foods to go through a "thnw-freeze- thaw" sequence.

The 12-week Second course consists of a series of interest tests, discus- sion groups, personal counsel- ling, social activities and an as- sessment period, administered by an educational psychologist. The course is offered at both the university and the YWCA and more than 600 women have lakcn it during the last three years. "The course Is for women who have lost confidence in themselves and their abilities and aren't satisfied with visiting neighbors for colfee and talking about the said Carol Fra- zer, 25, YWCA program direc- lor. STARTING POINT "We don't give them jobs, we don't sign them up for do give them in- formation to assess their abili- ties and what they really want to she said in an inter- view. "The course Is a jumping-off point, a means rather than the end of self-fulfilment." Mrs. Frazer said surveys of women who have taken the course show 52 per cent are "doing something playing bridge, doing volunteer work, learning lo speak Swed- ish, selling real estate, getting a divorce, finishing high schcol o.': returning to university. June Bulat took the course two years ago and now is a volunlesr co-ordinator helping organize the classes. Now 41, with six children between six and 20 and married to a high school vice-principal, she said she was "looking for something to do of benefit to other peo- ple." Both Mrs. Frazor and Mrs. Bulat said they tM7ik the course is meeting a need for women frustrated with their position in life. "Half the women I talk to on the phone who call lo inquire about the course arc .semi-hys- terical and fed up with just talk- ing to their kids all day. "Women arc beginning lo re- alize how important it is to get oul. of Ihe said Mrs. Frazer. Mrs Eulal agreed, saying: "Women need to get together to talk to one another and say things other than 'Gee I heard about this great new Moor wax.' QUICK, off the top of your head what apple is really an orange? It's the lovely old-fashioned pomander, which apparently comes from the French pomme d'ambre or apple of gold. True, the pomander hasn't always been made from an orange, but then it never ever was an apple. The early ones were made from clay or metal, and the old Spaniards went in for pomanders set with emer- alds and other exotic gems. Old Henry VIII loved pomanders and paid dearly for rare and unusual ones. In his day, they were en- cased in gold or silver and suspended from a neck chain or a lady's belt. Officially, the pomander was carried as protec- tion against infection and disease, but I never believed that myself. I think that in those pre-soap-and-water days, they were more than likely held up to the nose when milord or lady passed downwind of a particularly obnoxious smelling bundle of humanity. These days, the very nicest pomanders are made from oranges. Hung in a clothes closet or placed in a drawer with lingerie or linen, they leave a lovely, lingering perfume ano! help to keep the moths at bay. To make your own, start out with a good, firm- skinned navel orange, some powdered orris root, whole cloves and ground cinnamon. Use a fine meat skewer or small pick and puncture the orange skin all over. Stick in the cloves, then roll the whole thing in a mixture of orris root and cinna- mon. Wrap in tissue and allow to age a few weeks. Washing dishes is probably fairly low on your list of favorite things. For all you fussy people who object to yesterday's egg served up with today's lamb chop, the Consum- ers Association of Canada tested 21 brands of liquid detergent selling on grocery shelves across Canada. Results showed there was no problem getting dishes clean with any of the detergents, so the tests went on to find out how many dishes could be washed with each detergent when equal amounts were used. Among the brands tested, Lux, Dove and Palmo- live washed the largest number of dishes. But before you reach for one of these brands, weigh that information against the price of the com- petition.
