Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 3.8 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Novombw 28, 1970 For The Record By MARIIYN ANDERSON HeroW Family Editor IF you're from Saskatchewan (and isn't half of you'll be interested to know that Home- coming celebrations for 1971 will get under way in Retina Dec. 31. The Saskatchewan Centre of the Arts in Regina will be the scene of a province-wide party and tickets may be obtained through the Centre box office, 200 Lakeshore Drive, Regina. Tickets are only S5 per couple with a smorgasbord later in the evening. Performers for the entertainment will include Jim Roberts, Pat Steele, Bette Graham, Anita Gass, the Carol Bell dancers and an orchestra and chorus un- der the direction of an old classmate of mine, Vern Bell and Bob Moyer. This bit of entertainment will be followed by the finals of the Saskatchewan Homecoming Queen con- test with eleven hometown beauties competing. Dancing will follow with Bob Moyer and Gene Dloughy's orchestras. It seems like a long way to go for a party and especially on New Years' Eve, but it's absolutely un- believable the number of people you can run into from across the border who now live in Lethbridge and dis- trict. Teachers must outrank any other occupation and the influx of families who 'go west' never seems to stop. There are quite a few people who go to Regina or Saskatoon for the holidays, and it seems nearly everyone who doesn't, wants to know "what happened to Mary with the red hair, remember she always said 'How about It's always seemed a shame somehow that there isn't a Saskatchewan Club in Lethbridge which met perhaps twice a year, or even once a year. It would probably take a place the size of the Exhibition Pa- vilion to hold everyone. It might just be kind of interesting to renew old acquaintances and find out what did happen to Mary with the red hair. Soutli American princess has marriage annulled NUKUALOFA, Tonga (AP) The marriage of Princess Siuili- kutapu to a handsome com- moner has been annulled, and Hie royal house of this South Pacific kingdom says she will marry a suitable blueblood The princess is a niece of King Taufaahau Tspou TV. Her father, Prince Fatafehi Tuipele- bake, is prime minister. Apparently she decided to marry in New Zealand because she knew of palace resistance to her choice of a commoner, Sios- laa Liava. But when the news reached Tonga, miles away, she was ordered home. According to local gossip, in tfte absence ol the official com- ment, the 23-year-old princess pleaded ardently to be permit- ted to remain married. But the king Issued a decree: "Whereas, by law and by cus- tom of our kingdom it is maaw- ful for any member of our royal iamily to marry any person Positive results shown Equality drive changes employment pattern NEW YORK Women's job equality drive and the needs of the economy have produced big clanges in the pattern of fe- male employment in the U.S., according to a report in the No- vember issue of Tlie Morgan Guaranty Survey, published to- day. Tie bank publication predicts that "dynamic change in wo- men's role in the work force and in the economy" will con- tinue in the years ahead. It does not see "real equality" as coming soon, however, and notes that "with many employ- ers in many lines of work, ac- ceptance of women has a long way to go." Among posilive developments in the job picture for women, the Morgan Guaranty economic review cites the following: 1. A steadily growing propor- tion of total jobs in the U.S. is held by women. Female work- ers now number 32 million, equal to 38 per cent of the work force, compared with 30 per cent at tlie peak of the Second World War. 2. New kinds of employment opportunity are opening for wo- j men; these include a greater j range of executive jobs in busi- j ness and access, though still limited, to skilled trades like plumbing and aircraft mainte- nance. 3. Both business and public agencies are getting interested in providing child care facil- ities for working mothers. Even with this progress, the Survey article observes, "the U.S., compared with other na- tions, plainly is not taking ad- vantage of an important nation- al resource the brainpower and potential of its women." For instance, the art i c I e notes: 1. Half of all women workers are employed in "only a rela- tive handful of job categories such as office worker, sales clerk, teacher, librarian, or 2. Many employers in m a n y lines of work still disqualify wo- men for jobs with "physi c a 1 demands" solely on the basis of sex; 3.

NOT GIVE CONSENT' "Now therefore, we, by and with the advice and consent of oar Privy Council, do hereby notify and proclaim that we did not and do not give our royal consent to thep purported mar- riage in Auckland, New Zea- land, on the 28th day of Octo- ber, 1969, of our most beloved niece Siuilikutapu, daughter of our most beloved brother Tuipe- lehake. "'Whereof let all men take no- tice and govern themselves ac- cordingly." The annulment created criti- cism in New Zealand, whsre doubts were expressed about the legality of the annulment. Tongans had no king's word is law. Some felt it a pity that the romance was ended; others that the king had been slighted. The prospective bridegroom is much more in keeping with tra- dition? Kalaniuvahi-Fotofili is one of the islands' leading chiefs and is a second cousin to his bride. He is also the king's aide-de-camp. The choice has been ap- plauded by all but a few in Tonga. A student who has he thought the annulment studied in tilt United States said "shows up the feudalism under which we live." WAITING LIST KUALA LUMPUR (AP) There's a waiting list of couples who want to get mar- ried here. People at the end of the line who want to be married in a civil ceremony will have to wait until 1972. Officials say that's because the bureaucratic staff is too small to handle the applications.

This was a news ar- ticle in The Lethbridge Her- ald on May 30, 1944. The group of young girls made Lethbridge well known in provincial music circles with the many awards and high praise, they obtained under the direction of Mrs. Janet Mcll- vena McLeod with accompan- ist, Mrs. Pfii-cy Cull. The choir was organized in 1936 by Mrs. McLeod who was music supervisor in the city schools. Mrs. McLeod was well known for her own CBC radio show, Sing and Play, which was the first t e a c h i ng program broadcast for schools in the province.
