Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta LIBERAL FEDERATION ELECTIONS June Westbury a Winnipeg alderman, was elected English-speaking women's vice-president Sunday of the Liberal Federation of Canada at a party policy conference in Otawa. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes realize 'wife' is not a very lofty posifion in life may promote you soon to 'deputy husband'." Pressclnb open to women KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) A special meeting of Kitchener- Waterloo Press Club officials decided women employed in the news media should be al- lowed active membership, end- ing a 17-year men-only policy. The new resolution will al- low female secretaries as well as women journalists to take full membership with the club. Reporter Marilyn Anderson, who initiated the move, said women "were already in the club as guests six days a week" and the new law would only be official recognition of situation that has existed for a number of years. Women's Lib too narrow, say spokesmen SASKATOON (CP) The possibility that the Women's Liberation Movement in Can- ada might be narrow-minded was raised by two spokesmen for the organization during the weekend. Marlene Dixon of Montreal and Peggy Morton of Toronto were addressing 200 delegates to the movement's first nation' al conference. Miss Dixon said many mem- bers of the movement are not interested in protesting injus tice unless it affects them di- rectly. "Not all women are our sis- she said. "I can't be a part of tin's anymore. We must become opposed to all forms of exploitation. Women are the most exploited." She called on movement members to revolt against a system she said is based on the dollar. "That which you desire for yourself, you take. When you are truly struggling for libera- tion then you'll reach the real- ity that the best servant of the people is the person that is a revolutionary." Lack of safe car seats sets off public crusade By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) A few months ago a threc-month-olc baby died in a car accident There was no highway speed involved it happened on the way home from the supermar- ket. No one else was even badly shaken. The baby on someone's lap in the front seat, and its fragile skull was smashed when the force of a minor col- lision sent it flying out of the passenger's arms. For Joy Moon it was a trag- edy that turned a private worry into what she hopes will be- come a public crusade. Mrs. Moon didn't know the I child, or its family.

HIGH MORTALITY Three out of four children live i areas of the world where the mortality rates are about 40 Lmes higher than in Canada. the first woman Lutheran min- ister in the United Slates. The new minister, ordained Sunday in a ceremony at the University of Maryland chapel, said her new role is not -a blow for women's liberation and that she did not seek the ministry to prove a woman could suc- ceed in this field. Miss Platz, a 30-year-old, curly-haired brunette, has served for five years as assist- ant Lutheran chaplain at the university. Rev. Paul M. Orso, president of the Maryland Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, performed the ordination. The congregation, which nearly filled the chapel, included officials of all branches of American Lu- theranism and representatives of several oilier church bodies. The LCA is the largest of the three Lutheran bodies in North America, with mem- bers. knew about the accident was in a brief news story. She read it after she and her husband had spent long, frustrating weeks trying to find a safe car seat for Jonathan, now and a safe car bed for the baby soon to be born. What they learned during their search has upset Mrs. Moon badly enough that she wants everyone who is inter- ested to join her in an effort to prevent more needless deaths. She wants safe car beds and seats to be avialable, designed to fit children of every age. There are gaps now. She wants government regulations setting standards. She wants more peo- ple to know about and to use the seats that are available. Anyone who wants to help can get in touch with her through the Consumers' Asso- ciation of Canada, 100 Gloucest- er Street, Ottawa. Letters should be addressed to Child Safety Seats so the GAC can iiandle them quickly. Mrs. Moon said their family search for a safety seat began when Jonathan was 10 months old. "We were going on holidays and he was beginning to climb out of the standard car bed :hings, so we decided to buy lim a car seat. "When we went to the store my husband was horrified. For one thing, he said the seat that woks over the back of a car seat would just pop off in an accident. "The sales woman showed us he kind with runners that slide under the back of the car seat. Ve might have bought one of those, but they have a head rest. If you pushed into the 'oam covering, you could feel he points of the screws that leld it to the frame and you didnt' have to push very far." A friend suggested they call he Ontario Safety League.

It resulted in their discover- ing there are no enforceable standards govering the manu- facture of car beds and seats for children. Standards are being written for the United States and were due to be pub- lished in January, 1971, but there has been a delay. The call also resulted in an Invitation to a seat belt semi- nar sponsored by the Ontario department of transport. At the seminar, Mrs. Moon asked a panelist about the ef- ficiency of the seat harness and was told that in a collision it might crush a small child's chest. Mrs. Moon said Dr. Donald Huelke, professor of anatomy at the University of Michigan, told her there is no really effi- cient safety seat or safety belt for a child who is out of the bassinet but not yet tall enough to sit 19 inches high. She said the Fort Tot-Guard was recommended for a child who does sit that tall, along with a General Motors infant safety bassinet for babies. The moons now have both but only after a lot of trying. Mrs. Moon found that dealers for both companies said they had never heard of the safety devices. One said he had had a Tot-Guard once but sent it back to the company because no one ever asked about it. Eventually, through Mend who knows the car business, the Moons located a dealer willing to look it up in the ca- talogue and order one for them. Ford's public relations de- partment in Canada sent Mrs. Moon a letter saying they had sold 97 from March, 1968, to December, 1969, and 184 from January to October of 1970. Another 20 were on order. The 1966 census showed children four years old and under in Canada. Mrs. Moon has talked to doc- tors and anyone else who could give her background material. She has written letters to news- papers, called government de- partments, car manufacturers and the CAC. Now she wants to find other people willing to do the same or able to supply her with more information. Tuesday, November 24, 1970 THE lETHBRIDOf HERAID S3 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Why can't married children leave then- parents alone? Our two are In their early 30s, college graduates and considered bright. Our son and daugh- ter both married "well" (whatever that Now, all they do is fight with their spouses, and over the craziest things you can imagine. I've begged them to leave me out of their family argu- ments but they keep dragging me in. Do I owe it to them to serve as mediator for the sake of the children? The little ones are getting the worst of it. They are so fearful and anxious, with all the symptoms of insecurity bed wetting, nail chewing, stuttering unexplained skin rashes. Pastoral councelling has not helped. The four of them are like kids. It makes me sick and it Is ruining their children. What can I do. Ann? In Ky. DEAR C.I.K.: There's not a great deal you can do, but you can do something. First, refuse to act as the referee. Pick up and leave the room when storm clouds gather. If they start to battle at your house, tell them to knock it off and settle their arguments at home. Spend as much time with the grandchildren as you can. If their pediatrician feels the children need professional help, urge him to suggest it to their parents. And don't let the wacky warriors give up on counselling or themselves. A change in councellor has pro- vided the answer for others and it might work for them. H DEAR ANN LANDERS: Last night my husband and I attended a public meeting. I was seated on the stage and had a good view of people. What I saw made me ashamed of my fellow Americans. When the National Anthem was played, some people didn't even stand up. Several men did not remove their hats. A few dozen people (men and women both) saluted. Others placed their hands over their hearts. Some people didn't know their hearts are on the left side. Half the people I watched didn't know the words. They faked it or didn't sing at all. Comment please. Phil DEAR PHIL: When the National Anthem is played, every- one should stand. Men should remove their hats. If the flag is on display the hand should be placed over the heart. For those who don't know, the heart is on the left side. How will you know when the real thing conies along? Ask Ann Landers. Send for her booklet, "Love Or Sex And How To Teh1 The Difference." Send 35 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope with your request. No YW canvass The Herald has been notified by an official of the YWCA that children canvassing in the city "for the YW" are doing so without the knowledge and au- thorization of the organization.
