Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your column is an instruction course in good sense, good judgment and good manners. Will you please print these basic rules for the issuing invitations? So far as I know, nobody has ever done it. 1. Write or telephone. Don't ask a third party to relay the message. It's an insult at worst and at best, an indica- tion that you didn't care enough to do it yourself. 2. If you get a refusal, don't ask why or make the per- son feel uncomfortable about not accepting. Say, "I hope we will see you another time." 3. It is always appreciated if you mention others who have accepted. People like to know who else will be present and are often reluctant to ask. 4. If your invitations are refused more than twice, take the hint. They do not wish to get involved with you socially. We Like Gracious Living DEAR GRACIOUS: I go along with 1-2-3 but not 4. I can tell you from personal experience that I've had to refuse invitations (more than twice) from people I enjoy. A third or fourth refusal need not mean they don't wish to "get involved with you socially." DEAR ANN LANDERS: Forgive me for asking a question about a topic you've dealt with frequently, but I need an opinion. The women who've written to ask if a face-lift is worth the expense and pain have already decided that anything is worth it if it helps them hang on to a husband or get a new one. My question is a little different. Do you believe a face- lift will help me in the labor market? I nave no qualms about my abih'ty (I'm in the paramedical field) but I hear so much these days about youth that I wonder if I'd have a better chance for employment if I looked ten years younger. I was widowed a few months ago and am in my mld-40's. Thanks, Ann. Undecided In Nebraska DEAR UNDECIDED: The woman who expects a face-lift to take ten years off her age is in for a disappointment, unless, of course, she has some glaring cosmetic defect, such as prominent bags under the eyes or grass sagging of the jowls. A supple, slim figure will go a lot further toward making a woman look younger than facial surgery. But of course it means giving up some of those gourmet delights and exercis- ing regularly. Most women would rather have an operation. It's easier to put the burden on a surgeon.

Ervin, photo To plug or not to plug Friendly rivals vie for meters By DENNIS BELL WHITEHORSE, Y.T. (CP) Meter maid Valerie Mate- chuk bundles up in a parka every weekday morning and tramps into snowy downtown Whitehorse at 8 a.m. bristling with ballpoint pens and a thick book of parking tickets. A few blocks away and two hours later, professional "anti-meter maid" Joanne Schriock dons her parka, stuffs a roll of nickels into her Hooker gets icy reception MONTREAL (CP) Mar- tha Adams is not letting a re- buff by the Saguenay-Lac St. Jean Farmwomen's Associ- ation get her down. She call- ed the women "a band of frustrated women and a bunch of hypocrites" for say- ing she's not good enough to visit their town. The argument started when the women learned that Miss Adams, who ran on a platform of legal prostitution in the Oct. 30 federal election against Claude Wagner, lead- er of the Progressive Conser- vative's Quebec campaign, was invited to address the Chamber of Commerce in Al- ma, 125 miles north of Quebec city. The women asked the Chamber to cancel the en- gagement "in the name of the respect you have for your mothers, your wives, your daughters and sons." "The Chamber of Com- merce offered me a round- trip ticket and a good said Miss Adams, who faces trial next month on charges of living off the avails of pros- titution. "Don't think I'm going to be deterred by a band of frus- trated women who oppose my coming to their she said in an interview. "They're nothing but a bunch of hypocrites who prob- ably do worse things than I in secret. If they want to protest when I visit Alma, let them." Miss Adams finished fifth of six candidates in St. Hya- cinthe riding.

Mrs. Matechuk watches 340 parking meters in the busi- ness district of this territorial capital. It is her duty to ticket all automobiles parked at me- ters showing red "expired" flags. And it is Miss Schriock's job to see that the city meter maid issues as few tickets as possible. A group of down- town businessmen is paying her to stuff nickels into every parking meter that is about to wink red before Mrs. Mate- chuk can get to them. "We may be rivals, in a sense, but we're friendly ri- said Miss Schriock, 20, of Beaver Flats. Sask. "We SHOES DOWNTOWN ON SIXTH STREET UN steps forward, backward UNITED NATIONS (Heu- ter) The 27th general ses- sion of the United Nations marks two important steps forward and one backward in expending the influence women wield at the UN. On the positive side, two women have broken into all- male strongholds and more women are representing their governments at the General As- sembly. Ambassador Jean Martin Cisse of Guinea became the first woman president of the Security Council in the history of the international institution, leading the UN's major deci- sion-making body for the month of November. In September, Mrs. Helvi Sipila of Finland Irecame the first woman assistant secre- tary-general, holding the high- est administrative positive a woman has ever had in the world body. Mrs. Famah Joka-Bangura, who has had an annual Sun- lay afternoon party exclu- sively for women delegates during the last three years, said the number of women delegates mclcnses every year, going from about in 1970 to ISO in 1971. On the other hand, the num- ber of women in the jobs that call for the highest qualifica- tions or the most familiarity with foreign 1 a n g u a g e s dropped to 546 in 1972 from MO in 1971. Part cf the reason for the lag in female employment is the failure of women to keep pressure on the male-domi- nated organization, Mi's. Sip- ila "I had to accept my ap- pointment because I was the first woman Mrs. Sipila said. "If 1 had turned it down, some would have been quick lo say women coulln't bolster their demonstrations and talk with action. But it was difficult to have to leave my husband and four children to lake the job." In addition to upsetting fam- ily routine for her three-year (erm, Mrs. Sipiln said she was forced to sell the law practice she founded in lfl-13. Her hus- band is also a lawyer. Mrs. Cisse brought with her the youngest of her six chil- dren, n nine-year-old girl, leaving her other children with her husband who is gov- ernor of a region in Guinea. Breaking tip her family for throe years was a necessary sacrifice in the struggle to women's international status, she said, adding: "I don't know whether my hus- band liked my appointment, but lie didn't stop me." had lunch together the other day and that had everybody in an uproar." The great Whitehorse park- ing meter flap has been in full swing since the city first installed the meters amid howls of outraged protest about four years ago. Most Yukoners seem to hold a tra- ditional grudge against puny one eyed machines that eat coins and go tick, tick, tick. The downtown businessmen, who soon became the city's most vociferous critics on the meter issue, won the first round when an irate motorist challenged in the courts the city's right to meter down- town won. The motorist managed to prove that all the streets in Whitehorse were in reality territorial land and the city had no power to put in its me- ters. An embarrassed city council turned to the territo- rial government for help. The government hustled through some legislation that gave the streets to the city and the meter came out of temporary retirement with a vengeance. Since then, the one-eyed bandits have been grossing roughly a year in a head for every man, woman and child in Whitehorse. Robert Erlam, publisher of the thrice-weekly Whitehorse Star, formed the idea of hir- ing a full-time anti-meter maid to keep, the machines choked with coins. He said the meters were driving po- tential customers out of the downtown area to big shop- ping centres on the outskirts of the city which offered free parking. He ran an advertisement in the newspaper in early No- vember: "Wanted. Lady with nice personality and lots of pep. Duties: To patrol the streets of Whitehorse putting nickels in parking meters that have nearly expired. Objects of po- sition: To stop the over-zeal- ous meter maids in the city of Whitehorse from issuing park- ing therefore put an end to the fantastic amount of fine money flowing into city coffers." Miss Schriok applied for the job and was hired Nov. 15. By JUDE TUHIC Herald Staff Writer For the past two years, Ray- mond Cournoyer has been help- ing people to help themselves. As Oxfam-Canada field direc- tor for Bangladesh, it has been his responsibility to assess the needs of communities and pro- vide financial assistance through the organization. ''I spend much of my time visiting areas and people who wish to get assistance from Ox- he said. "It is an organization that doesn't simply hand out a little food and clothing, but rather provides the means to an end gives the financial support to the local people to carry on development programs." He said the purpose of Ox- fam is to help people start up where they had left off because of a crisis such as the Bangla- desh war. "It is the country which ap- iroaches Oxfam, explains what s needed, and then we can ake steps. 'It is a matter of assessing he situation' and finding out what the priorities are, and ping ahead in solving them." He said Oxfam "teaches the leople how to tackle their own iroblems." In the time that Mr. Cour- noyer has spent working as 'ield director, he has seen the development of adult education jrograms, led by the young revolutionaries who had return- ed to their villages following independance. "The boys and girls are teaching their own people. 'But they needed facilities, jooks, charts and other mater- ials they came to us for assistance." In other areas, Oxfam has assisted in the formation of co-operatives, and has iielped finance credit unions which can provide money to the people. "It is all on the self-help said Mr. Cournoyer, "we start at the grass roots level, the village level, it all gets the wheels of self-support rolling." "This is only the he explained, "the people have a five-year plan, and in that time, one of their goals will be to have all areas 100 per cent literate." Oxfam-Canada raises funds through volunteer committees at local levels who participate in education programs and var- ious projects for the purpose of collecting money. Venereal disease increase medical., not moral issue OTTAWA (CP) Doctors must consider rising rates of ve- nereal disease as a medical problem, not brush it aside as a moral one, says an editorial in the Canadian Family Physician, a magazine for doctors. "The immediate problem is a medical one; it is not pri- marily a moral editor David Woods said. The rising incidence of VD is unquestionably tied to freer atti- tudes to he said. "ft is also unfortunately con- nected with increased resist- ance to the drug we thought would cure d out an members of Xi Nit Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi, and their husbands, recently attended closing night of Man of La Mancha. Mr. and Mrs. R. Rit- tenhouse eirertained at their home following the musical. At any rate, "one cannot leg islate he said. Venereal disease is a clinica disease that can be traced ti find who has it and it can be treated medically, the editoria said. Public support and education are needed and doctors can help mobilize this rather than stress ing the moral side which wil only alienate rather than rally public support. "If there is a moral probtem about VD, it's the dilemma fac ing the physician wondering if lie should report a case." Public health officials have said that the medical reporting of those with contacts can be traced and advised t seek poor. Medi cal associations have urged doc tors to report. Mr. Woods said doctor should receive more education about tracking down the disease and treating it. A World Health Organization report has sail that many physicians are un trained in recognizing and treat ing it. INTRODUCTORY PRE-CHRISTMAS WALL CLEANING SPECIAL By MAGIC KISS.
