Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 26, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Ann Landers rv heips mid treated as slaves, UEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a girl 14. My father owns a successful business which he started before I was born. My mother helps him weekends. For the last four years, since I was 11, I have had to spend every summer and every holiday working m the office for my dad. I've never received a paycheck because I am a member of UK family." 1 am not lazy and I am not trying to goof off, but I would dearly love to get a paying )ob next summer. My father says, "You'll work for me until you go Is this fair? I have respect for your opinion, and so do my parents. Please settle this. Massachusetts Mickey DEAR M M. M.: A 15-year-old, which is what you will be next summer, is no little kid. I assume you keep regu- lar working hours and do a good job. In my opinion, you should be paid for your time. Suggest to your dad that he bank 75 per cent of the paycheck in your name. The re- maining 25 per cent should go to you to spend as you please. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My next door neighbor is a young mother as I am, and she has asked me for advice. I told her I was no Ann Landers, hut I'd try. Now 1 find myself writing to you which is what SHE should have done. Her three-year-old son will not eat. The reason she asked me for advice is because I have no feeding problem with iry two kids (ages 4 and She wants to know why. She pulls her hail- out of her head and her son is practically starving himself. I pay no attention to my kids' eating habits and I have no problem whatever. My kids would eat a horse- shoe dipped in chocolate if I gave it to them. What should I tell her? I don't know the answer. Relaxed Ma In Sher- man, Texas. DEAR SHERM: The answer is in your letter. Your neighbor is pulling the hair out of her head and you are "Relaxed In Sherman." If she'd step making a federal case out of what her son eats and wiiat he doesn't eat, he'd eat better. The plate can be the battlefield on which Ma and offspring fight their most devastating wars. Finicky eaters usually get that way be- cause it's a good mechanism for getting attention. Funny how a three-year-old can outsmart his mother.

Of the 10, in Grades 4 to 7, :.ll ut one is registered as blind llhough there is a variation m ic degree of sight they possess. With the seeing machine, as 's called, they now can read bout animals or sports or n-liatevor they fancy, just like then kids. The machine is a simple ar- angement of components: a camera with adjustable zoom ens hooked into a regular tele- vision screen. A book is placed under the lens and a 10-power magnification appears on the screen. 'It helps a whole said Rickie Kramer, 13, who has no sight in his right eye and 20-per-cent vision in the other. "Now I'm ahle lo read smaller books because the picture on thn screen makes the words big 'You don't have to put your nose right up to the book any more." Corry Stuive, 12. whose visioi is limited to "shadowy figures" without thick-lensed glasses, said: "We're pretty lucky. It's a leally big help for small print things. We can take all sorts of Ijooks out of the library now that we couldn't before." The machine helps the chil- dren scholastically, teacher Dianne Ilumeniuk said. She now can use regular text books instead of having to rely on large-print books which are "expensive, hard lo get and very Americanized." The idea of the machine came from a magazine article Miss Ilumeniuk read which described the prototype built by a man with a vision problem. Iranian princess remembers UNITED NATIONS (AP) Princess Ashraf Pahlavi re- members when women in Iran were treated like slaves. There hnve been big changes in the Persian empire, and the princess has become a women's right leader. She has an Iranian del- egate to the United Nations for eight years, the last three as chairman of her delega- tion. In Iran she has headed the establishment of n u r s i n g schools and women's literacy corps, has been vice-chairman of the Imperial Organization of Social Sciences and presi- dent of the high council of the Iranian Women's Association. On an international level, she was chairman of the 19G5 Tehran Conference on Human Rights and last year was chairman of the UN Commis- sion on Human Rights. She is 51, married and has two sons and a daughter. At her Fifth Avenue suite over- looking Central Park she noted: "We now have women cabi- net ministers, such as our minister of education, mem- bers of Parliament, and our women are very active in our literacy drives and family planning campaigns." The princess, twin sister of the Shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, gives credit to him and their father, who founded the Pahlavi dynasty, for changing the role of women in Iran. 'Women were given the voting franchise by my she said. "As you know, 40 years ago, Iranian women weren't paid and were practically like slaves. Half the country was completely paralyzed." In 1962 the Shah introduced measures known as the White Revolution, and "women were granted equality with men in the eyes of the law." The princess paused before adding: "Equality in the eyes of the law does not mean in practice. We still have a long way to go before facing such problems as equal pay or w omen's liberation move- ment, but I am quite optimis- tic." The princess disclaims the title "feminist." "I do believe in the legal equality of men and women but I am not a militant activ- ist and I think evolution Liberal party study group reports on women's status OTTAWA (CP) The Liberal party's study group on the status of women plans to make its final report to the prime minister in January.

Marie Gibault of Hull, presi- dent of the Women's Liberal Tederation of Canada and a member of the three-women study group, said the group's inal policy recommendations will be based partly on a sur- vey of party members and part- y on public hearings it held across Canada. The voluntary group was cho- sen in March by the Liberal larty to gather opinion on the of the royal commission on the status of women and suggest priorities. Esther Greenglass of Toronto and Jail Steele of London, Ont., are its other members. The group made a prelimi- nary report this week to the party's consultative council out- lining priority topics, including women in the economy, day PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES 2 JACKPOTS IETHBRIDGE ELKS IODGE ROOM EVERY THURS-8 p.m. 1 S SIMPSONS-SEARS TEEN FASHION COUNCIL Presenting a Winter Wonderland of GROOVY TEEN FASHIONS Sat., Nov. 27 at 2.30 p.m. directly behind the Junior Bazaar Dept.

However, the Liberal party in its 1970 nationa convention came out in favor o esolutions that abortion shoulle because of ils discriminatio" against women." There was no question tha Indian women suffered fror discrimination more severe! han others. It was also generally agreed that women's political associa- tions should integrated into the main political body. At the 1970 convention, the Women's Liberal Federation narrowly voted down a proposal for such integration. rather than revolution should be t h e method lo achieve she said. "I have always found some- thing unfcminine in women demonstrating o r carrying placards. I may be wrong." The princess concedes that membership in the royal fam- ily has helped her in her work. But she is much more than a figurehead in her dele- gation. She attends committee meetings and usually is present when the General As- sembly meets in plenary ses- sion. One of Princess A-shraf's main goals is to convince the General Assembly to appoint a high commissioner for human rights, to "promote re- spect for human rights and determine where human rights have been violated." Iran and several other coun- tries back the idea.
