Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Octobtr 2, 1974-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-37 Chris Stewart Fourth Section The Lethbtidgc Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, October 2nd, 1974 Pages 37-48 Candidate booster Every candidate in the upcoming civic election could do with a booster like Mrs. Theresa Monaghan who, sandwiched between two posters, eased herself onto a local bus the other morning and in a friendly voice urged voters to vote for council aspirant Tony Tobin. Forced to place her advertising in front of her when she settled under the dryer at a local beauty shop she quickly hung her posters 'round her neck and stationed herself in a strategic downtown location once her hair was dry. "If you love your cat, please have it pleads Mrs. Violet Kandel, president of the local Humane Society, who already forsees a heavy number of felines deserted in the cold. Her fears are for real, if previous records are any indication. Mrs Kandel has sheltered numerous homeless cats and dogs when anxious callers phoned to report abandoned strays loiter- ing in their neighborhoods. Just last week she was called out to Picture Butte to rescue an abandoned shepherd collie which sat trustingly on the roadway awaiting his master's return. The week previous it was a black Labrador pup and two Siamese cats and goodness only knows what it will be next week, the animal lover laments. Spaying felines would be the greatest kindness to both the cats and their bulging offspring, she says. When members of the city's Naturalist Society meet with Waterton planners to discuss the park's future at a meeting slated for the public library on Oct. 15 they will present recommendations gleaned from many visits to the park, the last of which was to the Upper Rowe Lakes as recently as mid September. The meeting, co sponsored by the biology seminar at the U of L and the library will give an opportunity for local nature lovers to offer observations. Members this year plan to participate in the annual inter- national bird census by providing information on weather con- ditions and other factors affecting bird population according to plant pathologist Dr. Henry Harper, president, and active member for the past five years. One spot Dr. Harper par- ticulary appreciates is the Nature Reserve bordering the Oldman River between Highway 3 and the High Level bridge where vegetation fluctuates between near desert growth on the coulee sides to the lush marshland plants in the aspen groves along the river's edge. The local group, one of seven in the province, is now assisting Medicine Hat nature lovers in organizing a similar group in their area. Fencing, according to Dr. Ramon DelValle, is a prime way to learn speed, accuracy, agility and flexibility and is one sport to be enjoyed year round. The local doctor instructor, who learned the sport as a 14 year old in Madrid, who is both a member of the Canadian Fencing Association and the American Fencing League, reports that should the local registration reach 15, and providing each member joins the Canadian Association, the services of a professional fencer will be available to local members on a regular basis. All that is needed, he reports, is a mask, a sword and a training pastron. Interested persons can observe classes every other Wednesday evening at the Bowman Arts Centre.

The newly appointed chairman of Lethbridge Com- munity College's nursing program laughs at the sign on her door reading "chairper- "That has got to she says. "Whoever put that up must have thought I would be offended with the title chair- man, but it's quite the op- posite." Joanne D. Scholdra, who is starting her fifth year at the college, was appointed chairman Sept. 4 by the college's board of governors. Prior to her appointment, Dr. Scholdra was an instruc- tor in the second year nurs- ing program. As chairman she will retain some of her teaching func- tions which include both first and second year students; be involved in planning for changes in the school of nurs- ing with faculty; spend time negotiating with local health agencies for setting up clinical experiences for students; and interpret the needs of college nursing programs to provincial com- mittees. "As three year programs of nursing will soon be closed at the hospitals, college programs must be prepared to accommodate more she said. "As it is, many students applying here are already be- ing turned away. We can take a maximum only of 80 students on a first come, first serve basis." Dr. Scholdra hopes to strengthen the program, starting with developing a trimester system whereby enrolment may take place three times a year instead of just one as it is now. She says the college hopes to eventually bring in more programs under the school of health services, such as medical laboratory technician, dental assistant, and nursing aide. "All these proposed im- provements must first be approved by the board of governors then must be developed with the approval of the department of advanced education and the Universities co ordinating Council in Ed- monton." Dr. Scholdra obtained her "registered nurse" from the Saskatoon City Hospital. She then attended the University of Saskatchewan where she received her bachelor of science degree. She received her masters degree in medical surgical nursing from the University of Washington, where she also completed her PhD in education. Her thesis was curriculum and instruction. Her phD was completed during summer sessions while she was instructing at the college. "We have a strong nursing program here and hope to make it she says. By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer A lone woman walks down a dark, deserted street. Suddenly she is accosted by a strange man using violence or threats of violence to de- mand sexual intercourse. The hapless woman becomes a victim of one of society's most misunderstood crimes rape. While the incidence of rape increases across the country, most rapes go unreported, ac- cording to authorities. Most rape victims, says a Lethbridge Birth Control and Information Centre staff member, do not report sexual assaults to police because they have not been raped ac- cording to the stereotype, television serial circum- stances described above. Rape, says centre worker Janice Page, is the sexual ex- ploitation of an unwilling and intimidated woman. Often rape occurs in the victim's home or usual surroundings. And often the victim is raped by someone she knows, a friend or acquaintance. But because the circum- stances do not correspond with the stereotype violent rape by a strange man, the victim does not feel free to report the assault to police. City Police Chief Ralph Michelson says the police know of rapes that are not reported. No rapes were reported here last year, the chief says. Police have been asked to investigate only two rape complaints this year. Chief Michelson says the police know there are sexual offenders oii the loose. By reporting a rape, a victim might not be making her own life any easier. But, the chief adds, she might be saving the life of the rapists' next vic- tim: "If it's his (the rapist's) first victim, it won't be his last." Chief Michelson says many women think they don't "stand a chance" of helping police press charges and gain a conviction. Advising victims "They (victims) do stand a chance." Birth Control Centre worker Page says many women are -The Herald- Family reluctant to report rapes because social attitudes often convince women to think they must be partly to blame for their own misfortune. She says court procedures require rape victims to prove their moral uprightness and testify that they did not provide -the assault or consent to sexual intercourse. Because courts place the, onus on the woman to prove her own innocence in a rape, many women are hesi- tant to testify, she adds. to report sexual offences as soon as possible, the chief counters: BCIC plans to provide assistance to victims The Birth Control and Information Centre is planning to provide assistance to rape vic- tims. Worker Janice Page says the counselling service will basically be "women helping other women." She says the Birth Control Centre will provide rape victims with infor- mation about medical, police and court procedures. Ms. Page, who will speak Oct. 16 to a Women's Place rape discussion in the Lethbridge Public Library, offers this advice to women reporting a rape complaint to City Police or RCMP: Preserve evidence, don't wash or change your clothes and save clothing, anything broken in the struggle or any weapon used by the attacker; Call police immediately, they will ensure you receive medical attention at the emergency ward of a hospital. Call a friend or relative, should you decide to prosecute, the first person you talk to after the rape will become a key witness in your case; Write down the details, it may take several months before the case is brought to trial, and your notes will help you at that time; Get medical attention, in addition to a general check for injuries, a physician should do a pelvic examination to check for internal injuries and sample vaginal fluid for sperm semen; Make sure you get follow-up tests for. pregnancy or venereal disease. The Birth Control and Information Centre offers the following advice for avoiding rape: Don't hesitate to make a scene; Recognize dangerous situations; Yell loudly if attacked; Always try to control situations where sexual confrontations are likely to happen, whether surroundings are casual or intimate.

I 3 By MARGARET de MIRAVAL Christian Science Monitor PARIS, France As the chestnut trees expolde in bloom on the Champs Elysees and Parisians are peel- ing off winter wrappings, mannequins photographed along the sunny boulevards are contrarily layered up like a chocolate cake. And that's precisely what ready- to-wear collections for fall and winter are all about; capsule wardrobes with everything getting together and going together; co-ordinated ensembles with cape over coat over dress in turn lopping a turtleneck sweater and one or two long mufflers thrown in to frost the whole concoction. Reams have been written about the incoming "big looks." While some of the American buyers are skep- tical of the dramatic drop in -skirt lengths after the midi-maxi fiasco three years ago, overall sales are ex- pected to increase by almost 40 per cent over the same period last year, according to Philippe Lambert, presi- dent of the French Apparel Center in New York. It doesn't mean that everything in the closet is destined for the rummage sale next fall. But it does mean that we are going to literally tighten our belts, lengthen our hemlines, and choose something new with swirl and flare or drip and droop. Longer lengths are certainly one of the key factors of the new silhouettes. One fashion buyer's eye became accustomed to mid- calf lengths so quickly that she refused to remove her coat while dining in a Paris restaurant in order to cover her "old-fashioned" knee-length dress. So who are the "influentials" and what are the As usual Saint Laurent appears to lead the parade, and Yves's fox-collared cardigan that Jacqueline Onassis was photographed in all winter has been copied in every price range, while his Russian themes with Cossack shirts and boots, gathered skirts and knickers, capes and peasant dresses, are going to turn the sidewalks of New York into the counterpart of a movie set for "War and Peace" next season. The spirit of Jean Muir is everywhere: the lithe, body conscious dresses in matte silk jersey that in the truly fickle mood of fashion employ numberless yards of fabric just at a time when textile prices are soaring. Karel Lagerfeld's interpretation of layering in the Chloe collection received rave notices: again umpteen yards of paper-sheer fabric for every ensemble but avoiding any effect of bulk due to the revolutionary- concept of unhemmed coats and dresses finished only with whip stitching and floating as airily as a puff of dandelion. Kenzo made his name in knitwear, and he's not about to change it with all the peppy young overgrown sweaters and cardigans in such a marvelous new range of "retro" colors. When it comes to flashbacks and it certainly does one can't ignore the omnipresent mood of the 1930s which was such a dominant idea in the spring and summer couture collections and carries right on for fall. There are the bias cuts, limp and droopy silhouettes hanging like a damp dishcloth on the hanger but really coming alive on the figure, the Art Deco themes, and all the typical accessories from veil- trimmed pillbox hats to the long sautoirs and os- trich boas. Coats are big and beautiful, and the comeback of capes is making top news. Full circular capes swing out beneath small turndown collars, and there are dozens of variations on tne cape-coat. These "big- tops" (and often it really is a tent) are practically de rigeur over big dresses; full-skirted dirndl and peasant styles and Chloe's chemise to be worn belted or loose and flowing. Trousers are generally on the wane, though designers have come up with culottes as a com- promise, combining the practicality of pants with the grace of a skirt. Saint Laurent launches knickers in velvet or tweed assorted to the jacquard twin sets, teamed to high-heeled Cossack boots. Tweeds co-ordinated to knits are one of the dominant ideas. It's literally a close-knit family, including all the in-laws: new sweater sets with long sash-wrapped out- door cardigan and skinny pullover, patchwork effect co-ordinated to tweeds with blocks and squares in related color schemes, Art Deco patterns in zigzags and staircase steps, lacy little sweaters often edged with fluting or ruffles, and Sonia Rykiel's shawl- collared cardigans and surplice wraps. Art Deco motifs also come through in prints, with roses etched over rising sun rays, calla lilies, cubism, and optic designs. Colors are the 1930 dark greens, rusts, purples and all the deep fruit shades such as mulberry, plum, red grape, and prune. I I A utumn fashions Peyre's flashback to the '30s ;
