Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Novtmb.r 4, 1977 THJ UTHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Ann Landers .DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a fireman who just re- turned from answering a call. I am tired, angry, and I hurt all over. I feel I must write to you now because one of my buddies is to the hospital with his teeth knocked out and his nose and jaw broken. Why? Because some stupid motorist got impatient and ran over the fire hose that was lying across the street. If this doesn't make sense to you, let me explain. The sudden burst of pressure knocked the hose out of his hand and it hit him in the face. If you still don't get it, imagine holding a limp garden hose and someone sud- denly turning it remember that the pressure of a .fire hose is about 100 times more powerful than a garden hose. Now you know why my buddy is in the hospital. Here are some rules for the average citizen to follow and I hope to God you will print them in your column: you must follow a fire truck, stay at least 300 feet behind. Never ask a fireman if you can help. The average per- son knows nothing about fire fighting. You can help best by staying out of the way. Never run over a fire hose even if you are sure the water has been turned off. Do not call the fire department to put out small fires of weeds, trash and little conflagrations that you can ex- tinguish yourself. Such calls are as much a nuisance as false alarms. When calling the fire department, keep calm and ten them what kind of fire it is so they'll know what to ex- pect and whether to notify other fire fighters. Teach your small children how to report a fire. Always have the phone number handy, by the telephone. When your place of business is being inspected and you are told to make certain changes, don't think they are try- ing to hassle you. Spend the money and make the changes. It could be a matter of Me and death. Thanks a million, Ann. You've done your good deed for and Beat DEAR FRIEND: And you've done yours. Thanks for writ- ing and God bless you and your thousands of colleagues for risking your lives every day of the year for me and millions of other strangers. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Last week my boss dismissed a fellow worker. Now I am doing her work as well as mine. He made a big deal out of the raise I'd be getting. Today my cheque came. The raise is a week. What do you think? Lackey DEAR MORRIS: If you are able to handle your work as well as the work of a colleague, you didn't have enough to the recently departed co-worker wasn't doing much, which may be why she is no longer there. Your letter reminds me of some interesting statistics. The United States Department of Labor announced that 90 mil- lion people in this country are employed. It didn't say how many were working. Bruises all in day's work for lively Broadway actress By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor Maura K. Wedge rubbed a few of the more tender spots on her anatomy. "I've got some awfully good she said. Sitting in the Green Room In the bowels of the Yates, Maura explained she had been teach- ing the abduction scene steps to members of the cast of Man of La Mancha. After spending two years in the show on Broadway, she has the routine down pat. Man of La Mancha, a musi- cal drama presented by Leth- bridge Musical Theatre, stars Maura as Aldonza and produc- er Dick Mells as Don Quixote. It opens with a students' per- formance on Thursday at the Yates Memorial Centre. Maura is worrying about her cat, which had been boxed up for the trip from New York and is now confined in her hotel room. Krishna, she said Libra is involved in astrology. "I'm medium deep into she said. On her last tour with La Man- cha, she was named official company astrologer, and any- one particularly good was made an "honorary Libra." However, Maura is indi- vidualist. Being Libra, "there are people from a couple of the I should like and I don't, but I find people are like their signs.

WEDGE Acting dominated by males; screen women treated badly THE BETTER HALF HOLLYWOOD (AP) would think that the film and television industries, with their needs for actresses and female entertainers, offer equal oppor- tunities for women. Not so, declares actress Kath- leen Nolan, who is organizing a campaign to give women Unqualified homewreckers at work greater participation hi movies and TV. Miss Nolan, who first found fame in the TV series The Real cCoys, is chairwoman of the creen Actors Guild women's nference committee. Her ac- vities have gone beyond the terests of screen actresses to icompass other professions. "Ours is a male-oriented busi- ess, just as ours is a male-ori- nted she says.

The 35 members of the institute are mainly in Calgary and Edmonton. Mrs. Garland said: "In Canada there is one de- sign coureo offered at the Uni- versity of Manitoba, but the course itself will not assure the participant full membership in our institute or the proposed federal body to be known as Interior Designers of Canada.

"We ave taken surveys of the mount of screen time that is ominated by men, both in thea- res and on television. One sur- ey showed a seven-to-one ratio n favor of men. Another was 0-to-one. "This doesn't seem or realistic. In television, for example, it's women who are appealed to by advertising; they ray the products. They also ex- ercise the greater control of what the family sees on televi- sion. "Women like to see stones about women. Keal stories not distortions of their lives." DISTORT WOMEN'S ROLE Miss Nolan said that her com- mittee has made in-depth studies of the role of women in ic U.S., past and present. "The results are revealing There are, for example, more than women lawyers in the United States. Yet in every movie and television series, a lawyer is always cast as a man "The role of women in the settling of the West is interest ing, loo. They weren't al dance-hall girls or hookers. A lot of them were very stronj women they had to be stroni to leave their homes and face the rigors of the frontier." Some actresses hanker for the 1930s, when Hollywood wa making the "women's picture' and such stars as Bette Davis Joan Crawford, Rosalind Rus sell, Norma Shearer and Clau dete Colbert had equal or greater status with male stars. An illusion, argued Kathleen Nolan. "Yes, a woman like Rosalind Russell was portrayed as a suc- cess in a Miss Nolan said.

"I don't think the theatre uses enough of she said. "I like the group effort In college and the group theatre, lika but generally, profes- sional acting "only uses one portion of me.
