Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD Saturday, October 5, For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor football season is back again in black and white or living color whichever is in your home It's the lime when women lose their husbands, and children lose The .Mod Squad. Actually a new twist has been added in one city school which introduced football for its female students this year. I'm sure it's all a dastardly plot to indoctrinate the wives of tomorrow, but at any rate the girls are enthused about the game for more than the usual reason of the handsome quarterback. My own thoughts about the game remain the same. In response to requests from a number of faith- ful readers with similar views about the game, we're reprinting last year's football column. pOOTBALL. The very word strikes terror into the heart of every female television viewer. Actually there's good reason to watch football if you know what to look for. Football isn't just a sport; it's drama, comedy suspense. As long as the male members of the family don't mind you chuckling or grimacing at odd mo- ments, try a game out this weekend and take a good look at how the game is played. Football players work very hard, for their money Where else can you see 12 grown men do three hours' work just to run a pig's bladder up and down a muddy field Put them out on the back forty, they'd all be dirt poor and we'd call them western farmers. In the U.S.. they only use 11 men to do the same job, or maybe they don't have that many men to spare what with the Vietnam war and all. Canada can spare 12 since she's well on her way out of the defence business anyway. There's drama in football, too. Will the big guy on the bottom of the pile live to see another goal post after the 1.000 pounds of pad- ded flesh rises from his spinal cord? Will the backfield be in motion at a crucial mo- ment0 Will the football really hit that little crosspiece on top? Will Little Orphan Annie be reunited with Daddy Warbucks? Stay tuned for another exciting episode. The female viewer, and those as yet uninitiated to the joys of football, may be puzzled over one or two customs of the game. For instance. There is a quarterback, a halfback and a fullback. As would be expected, these men are named in relation to their size. Why then is the foot- ball given so often to the quarterback or the smaller player? What seems to happen is that the little guy has the ball which leaves all those big guys to trample all over him trying to get it. Why don't they just give it. to the big guy to begin with? Let him get smashed up a bit for a change. The novice might also wonder why the rales are set up to make things so difficult. When one team loses possession of the ball, it isn't just handed over to the opposition, it's kicked at them. It seems like a rather childish thing to do. be- cause the other team just catches it and runs back anyway The funny part is the way they keep getting into a huddle to talk things over. You'd think after all those practices and studying plays and rules and reg- ulations about sleep and healthy activities, they wouldn't need tc do planning right in the middle of the game. All in all it's quite a game, that football. I just wish they'd stop congratulating each other with those little pats on the rear end. APPOINTMENT s...

She Named It is a tabloid history of Canada written from the vantage point of the back of the bus. Its masthead says it produced entirely by volun- teer lalwr, by The Corrective Collective, eight members of assorted women's liberation groups in Vancouver. Hie beaver and his harried fel- low-victims were drawn by Collette French. Catherine Walker, o n e of the researchers cum authors, calls it a people's history of Canada, with a basically so- cialist slant. She says she and her friends wanted to present the history usually left out of text books. "You never learn who or- ganized the first union. You never learn that kind of his- tory. "Women are never men- tioned. Their role is consi- dered irrelevant, but it was QUEEN' SAID P1 "You're always told Miss Walker says the title is based on a comment attribu- ted to Queen Victoria when in 1807 she proclaimed Canada the name of the new Confed- eration. Miss Walker says the idea [or the tabloid came from a "people's history of Cuba" printed in the United States. The Canadian version originally planned when some U.S. women came to Canada in April to meet a group from Indochina. "We felt they should know- more alwut this country. Then it went beyond that and we felt Canadian women and mm should know more alwut the country." The co-authors divided their research by concept. Miss Walker says, rather than by chronology. SPARE TIME "One woman did Quebec, another did labor History, an- other took American imperial- ism in Canada and tried to trace that. I did the Depres- sion." Working in spare time, they put the 40-page tabloid to- gether in three or four months. Miss Walker says it is selling mostly in Vancou- ver, on campuses and in one or two sympathetic book stores. It has sold out its first print- ing of and another is planned. Miss Walker acknowledges that most of its sale has been to the converted, people whose views already match the one in the tabloid. She would like to see it get a wider audience. LEATHER BELTS Leather belts are getting big- ger with more hardware for the fall.

OFFICE 328-7114 Ros. 328-7505 By PETER KAYSER ROME liberation is having a hard time in Italy. Not only is it having to bat- tle the church, social tradition and the Italian male, but it also finds trouble maintaining a united front. In the short spaee of one year, the original Italian women's par la Liberazione della Donna- has split and split again into four recognizable m o v e- ments, ranging in philosophy from moderate to extremist, from radical to Marxist. The Roman Catholic church is openly against the move- ment. The Vatican weokly rOsscrvatnrc Romano said re- cently that woman was losing her maternal instinct. It maintained her role was to in- spire kindness and human vir- tue. STAY SILENT The traditions of Italy do not help either. The woman is generally expected to divide her time between kitchen, church and her remain silent. Many married Italian women who would like lo take on a job often cannot work up enough courage !o do so, since their husbands would object violently to their wives, whom they often consider part of their belongings, being in the company of other men. The law is tough on women, too. A woman can be sonl to jail for not performing her marital re- fusing sexual having or seeking an abortion and, until recently, for adul- tery. The law allows a man to do almost what he likrs with his family. Legal rights over chil- dren belong to him. He can open his wife's mail and he has the last word on almost every issue from moving house to his children's educa- tion. Sonic sec hope in a draft law currently under study by a parliamentary commission. This would give men ami women equal rights within marriage. But. even this is likely to contain a proviso that the husband has the last word on decisions affecting the life and death of children.
