Toeidcry, October 5, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Quebec gets rights support of VoW western delegates BANFF, Alia. (CP) The right of Quebec to separate was upheld and a large Que- bec project was opposed at the national Voice of Women conference during the week- end. Delegates supported pie to self-determination." Sixty- five delegates passed it unani- mously.

The Quebec delegation said I they favored two nations with- i in one country and unilingual- j ism for the province. Voice of Women may alloiv men to join BANFF, Alta. (CP) Men may soon be allowed to join the Voice of Women, says President Kay Macpherson. Such a move would Ire a reflection of the changes that have occurred in the role of citizens' concern groups like the Voice of Women, she said in a weekend interview. But despite the group's wide horizons, "everyone still thinks we're a women's lib Mrs. Macpherson said during the group's annual meeting. "Perhaps we should go bi- sexual." The Voice of Women was formed in the beat of the United States-Sonet confron- tation over the XJ-2 flights which temporarily scuttled hopes for a ban on atmos- pheric atom bomb tests. Mrs. Macpherson said many of her group's original causes have found wide acceptance, such as recognition of Com- munist China and its admis- sion into the United Nations, distribution of birth control in- formation and formation of a Canadian commission on bi- culturalism. Dorothy Rosenberg, a Mon- treal delegate, won VoW's sup- port for a cause which she said will displace Cree In- dians. Quebec delegates were join- ed by British Columbia and prairie representatives in con- demning plans for the giant hydro power damming project at James Bay. Mrs. Rosenberg said the project will have dis- astrous ecological implications and produce power mainly for a U.S'. market. She said Indian spokesmen don't want the hydro-electric development on their reserva- tion, but they haven't been con- sulted.

(AP) Mac, a 110-pound woman guard at the new Dallas Fed- eral Building, says she is ready for any cluding big, mean men. So far, she has had little trouble, but the possibility of violence doesn't scare her. "I feel confident." she said. Mac, 32, is Elaine Mc- Kerracher, whose 11-year-old daughter Kim thinks her mother is "just wonderful." Mrs. McKerracher's boss, Lieut. W. J. Glasser, said of her: "Size is no criteria. Mac is one of the best, pistol shots around very good at karate. I'd hate to tangle with her." What would she do if a 200- pounder grabbed her? "I'd probably get his instep, and an elbow in his she said in an interview. "You have to work tack. You know the first blow could tell the story." Mac works with two other women guards, Jan Jolly, 22. and Ann Davidson, the latter a grandmother. All can run a mile with any man, Glasser said, and all are trained in karate and marksmanship. The trio was among the sec- ond batch of graduates from the Federal Protective Offi- Ray, and about a dozen other men. She describes the job as a "test case" against male domination of stevedoring.

The five foot-four-inch blonde says: "You do have to know something about what you arc doing." Her husband Ray was watching Friday as she hoisted the packing crates. He had been jibed all week by other dockworkers who said Mrs. Laviolelte would not be able to handle the work. "Look at her go." he said. "She's showing them all."

Ross DEAR ANN LANDERS: If I am paranoid, infantile or just plain nuts I wish you would tell me. I'm heginm'r.g to ques- tion my own sanity. Here's what happened. My husband and 1 were invitol on short notice to a party at the home of some friends. My day became unbeliev- ably crowded (the dog got sick, my mother-in-law broke her glasses, the hank called me to ccme down and verify a signa- ture) and I had to cancel my beauty parlor appointment. My hair was a mess so I decided to wear a silk turban which matched my dress. When we arrived, the insless asked me if I wanted to remove my hat. I said no. A few minutes later she asked again adding, "Aren't you I said, "I'rn just fine." Soon the was at me again. 1 told her my hair was awful and I war.fed to keep the hat on. By this time several other guests hr.d arrived and my hair became the main topic of conversation. Finally the hos- tess said, "Oh, your hair can't IK THAT bad let's see, and tried to remove my turban. Another guest said, "You're overly sensitive. Shame en The more they talked the more upset I became. I had a lousy time and went home with a terrific headacltt. My husband says I should have removed my hat and ended the discussion. What do you say? Alpcna DEAR AL: I say the hostess behaved like a clod. If you had appeared in a football helmet she shculd have kept her mouth shut. Your only mistake was not telling her off and enjoying the evening. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I have been happily married for 16 yer.rs. A few weeks ago my husband blurted out something that has me so miserable 1 can barely stand it. Out of a clear blue sky he said he had a confession to make. It seems in 1958 when we lived in a dorm for married college students, he met ancther mar- ried gal who also lived in our dorms in, of all places, the supermarket. She had a large bag of groceries and lie offered to drive her back to the dorm since she had no car. On an impulse they drove to the woods and had a 15-minu'e affair. He said he became physically ill 'guilt, of course) ar.d told her they must never do such a thing again. They never did. The girl and her husband live 2.000 miles away but we have kept in touch through letters, cards and school reunions. I am so crushed by the knowledge that my husband did such a rotten thing to me that I want to telephone her and let her know I am now in possession of the facts. My husband would prefer that I not call. We have agreed to abide by your City DEAR YU: If you place the call you will accomplish the following: (a) Make your husband look like a loose-lipped Jerk. (b) Make yourself like like an insecure, addle-brained fool. (c) Fix it so you will never again be comfortable In the girl's presence. (d) Add about ?10 to your phone bill Is it worth it?
