Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - Friday, October 2, 1970 ami IV in Wafflers Challenge NOP In Leadership Contest By GERARD McNEIL OTTAWA (CP) - The miU-tant Waffle gi-oup seeks further influence in the New Democratic Party this weekend when Krista Maeots, 25, a pregnant blonde, contests the party's Ontario association presidency. She is also a militant women's liberationist and supports abortion. She believes the fetus she is carrying is unhuman until its birth. .As flag-carrier for the NDP's radical left, slie is an unswerving adherent to the Waffle manifesto that her husband, James Laxer, 28, helped draft. Unveiled a year ago by Toronto professor Melville Wat-kins, it alienated the party leadership with its emphasis on extensive nationalization. "Sheer unabashed weariness" was the way Stephen Lewis, 32, who seeks the Ontario leadership this weekend, described the manifesto. Yet the Wafflers showed strength at last fall's national convention in Winnipeg. They captivated the party's women and influenced choice of resource use as a priority issue in the party. Now they seek the party pres- LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. lus Comer By DONNA MATOLSCI Kate Andrews High School Coaldale PVER found yourself in a classroom with your mind wandering aroujid in a world far removed from the one in wWch you are located? Or, have you ever found yoiu-self walking alone down the corridor suddenly experiencing the sensation that the s c h o o 1' s brick walls are towering far above you like some impenetrable fence from which there is no escape? Have you, then, seriously begun to think and ask yourself, "What in the world am I really doing in this place? come here, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and yet, WHY? Do I really know why? No one has really told me why. I'm led to believe that it's good for me. And, some day it's going to help me in some way. But I can't get over this feeling that I'm trapped. It usually starts out as an end  of - the - week mslancholy feeling - motivated by I know not what. Probably a bad class, a disagreement with a close friend, some trivial thing that bugs me. School, all of a sudden becomes pretty irrelevant and distant. I mean, instead of sitting here doing "zulch," I would be at home reading a new novel, driving around or doing something dumb. Yet, here I am sitting behind this funny wooden thing - hard, sometimes hot, sometimes cold and most of the time unbearable. Everything seems to want to swallow you up - not allowing you to break out, run loose or do anything you want to do. You stare at the walls and wish they'd fall and tumble to the ground giving you freedom-for at least the rest of the day. Like wow, this place is really something. I mean, you don't really have to come to school if you don't want to or don't feel like it. They really can't do anything to you. I mean it's not like a prison where they can. Yet, if you don't come you know you're going to catch it from your parents for "skipping out." You know you want to pass those upcoming examinations, and the home work gets tossfld at you like water on a fire. , You say, "NO," yet sometiiing slaps back a loud, "YES, YES, keep on, finish school, it's not that bad . . ." Reality hits back, "Did you get Problem 13?" "What's that?" My goodness, where have I been? Oh, yes. Problem 13? Say, aren't those the school buses coming to take us home. My gosh, it's the end of the day. Peace to Everyone. r TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.M. LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERS) Tick off Ihs selections you want and send to us. You'll receive your records for only $1.00 each.

LUCIEN NEEDHAM ON SALE NOW AT LEISTER'S idency in Ontario. Only candidate so far besides Krista, a former newspaper reporter, is Incumbent Gordon Vichert, an English professor at McMaster University in Hamilton. She said in an interview her election depends on the strength of the Waffle group and "people's sympathy towards women's liberation." Thirty resolutions on the subject of women's rights are on the convention agenda and it will be a central topic. Miss Maeots, a research assistant at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., where her husband teaches history, would, as a Waffler, "try to revive the p a r t y's riding associations," shifting power away from the caucus and into the community. As a women's liberationdst, she outlined her views earlier this month at an NDP council meeting. She said the association of women with housework and child care is something to be broken. Because these jobs \vere almost exclusively women's, they had the characteristic of class jobs. "Women are housewives, just as blacks ai'e porters, Mexicans are grape workers, Indians are sugar beets workers," she said. PROGRAM INADEQUATE The NDP's program of daycare facilities to help women who want to work was inadequate. The party should support both special incentives to get women into the work force and industrialization of housework and socialization of child care. She also says public ownership of basic industries in Canada "is the only way to make them responsible." "We have to call for public ownership," she said in the interview. "We're fighting a big imperial power, the United States, in doing this." Swedish-born and Calgary-bred, her first contact with socialism can-ie at Queen's, wherft she graduated in political studies in 1968. She joined the Student Union for Peace Action, first anti-Vietnam war movement in Canada, and soon was talking Marx, Lenin, Castro with other adherents. Now she talks about converts to socialism.
