Lions Press Box By KARIN MOSER VANCOUVER (CP) A fe- male lamb entered the Lions' den Saturday night but instead of being mauled she got the VIP treatment. An attendant guarding the Empire Stadium press box never before invaded by a fe- male, froze when The Cana dian Press reporter flashed a B.C.

"CHARGE IT" CONVENIENT CREDIT TERMS CAN BE ARRANGED but let her in. Then he disap peared. The reporter sat wide-eyed staring through the glass onto the playing field ed at the idea of covering her first live football game. It was all out there, the lights, the artificial turf, the band, the majorettes, the great CFL symbol in the centre of the field and to one side, the Edmonton Eskimos working out. For close to 20 minutes feeling of triumph prevailed. Several male reporters came into the box, stared at the fe- male reporter for a moment, then sat down. Then in stormed Pat Slat- tery, custodian of the press box, followed closely by a red- faced attendant. Slattery, al- though in charge of the box, is better known to British Colum- bia readers as men's fashion columnist for the Vancouver Sun. "Sorry, we don't allow ladies in the press he said in an authoritative tone. It would be a precedent, he said. OUT TO COVER GAME She assured him she was not a member of the Women's Lib- eration Movement and that all she wanted to do was cover the B.C. Lions-Edmonton Eskimos game. "Well, the other reporters can't really let their hair down with a female he ex- plained. "Some of the language can get rough I wouldn't like my wife in here." After she assured him her ears had probably been assail- ed by a variety of controver- sial expressions.around a news desk, Slattery seemed to weak- en slightly and left. But he re- turned moments later with Dennis Veitch, general man- ager of the B.C. Lions. "Sorry, you can't stay here but we've set up a seat for you in the VIP lounge only 20 fept Wins Bet SASKATOON (CP) School trustee Kon Klombies collected a pool from the other trus- :ees recently for being only out iy eight pupils on a prediction of the number of children to be enrolled in the city's public school system this fall. There are children enrolled'. away from said Veitch diplomatically. When asked to at least give a reason for not letting a fe- male in the press box he re- plied: "I don't even want to give you a reason." That really hurt. Slattery later explained it was "nothing personal." "He just doesn't think a lady should be subjected to the kind of talk that goes on in here sometimes. "I know it even bothers some of the guys know, a couple of c'hurchy guys. "But my job is to see that the working guys aren't bother- ed. Sometimes we have to re- move guys who think they know the reporters and come in here to bother them." Both Mr. Veitch and Mr. Slattery said the Canadian Football League Writers' As- sociation had established the no-females-allowed rule. But four male reporters said that if asked they would vote to let the female reporter stay. They said they thought the rule was just "an unwritten one." "I have no objection to hav ing you in the press sal< Ken Romain of the Toronto Globe and Mail, who was covering that particular game A Sun photographer walkei in and added his vote: "Sure, you should stay." Three other reporters agreec they didn't mind either. "We don't mind, but it all de. pends on what she looks like said one. In the VIP lounge a wooden chair had been added hastily to a r o w of plush ones to ac- commodate the reporter. "You mean I have to sH on this hard chair through the whole she wailed. Within seconds the chair had been replaced with a soft leather one. "Maybe we could let a fe- male into the press box if she is doing actual play said Al Eaton, public relations man for the Lions. "We'll have to talk to the writers' associa- tion." Edmonton Eskimos downed GOLDEN WEDDING Mr. and Mrs. Paul Petrina of Lethbridge were recently honored at a family dinner on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary.
