Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID _ Ihuriiloy, Otlober 7, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor No discrimination between sexes, says city hall One-year terms for commission IIy M.Mill.YN ANDERSON Kninily Keillor If the word of heads of city 'oparlments can be taken at I tween male ami female appli- garding female applicants, and that applications are, and would ing paid Hie proper ncgotiat cauls for city positions. i for some kind of guarantee thai i be, accepte The subject was brought up at j there was equal opportunity, iwent council meeting by i In the subsequent inquiry :cd on an equal from i salary. lull) male and female.

They get in the car and you're in- stantly aware your car wasn't built for their long legs. You can hear that silent sigh of resignation as they view a pancake lifter on the floor, and for sonie unknown reason you can mentally picture the perfect housewife running Her white gloves slang your undusted end table. The very polite ones .simply shuffle their feet around the pancake lifter and say nothing. The more vociferous ones turn the conversation around to the problem the world is facing wilh pollution, and how much use the city is getting from the sanitary land- fill. In the name of the Girl Guides, I strongly pro- test this male chauvinistic attitude toward female clutter 1 was indoctrinated by the Brownies at the tender'age of eight years to Be Prepared. I haven't always been too successful, but I do try. The pancake lifter, for instance, works just about, better than anything else to scrape the frost off of the windshield. It's faster, has a long handle and doesn't break when you're in a hurry. Another added benefit is that the "male driver in the family will never steal it on you when his scraper breaks, be- cause he wouldn't 'be caught dead explaining what a pancake lifter is doing in HIS car. Beside the pancake lifter is the furry wheel cover which keeps your hands warm in winter. This item was scoffed over when first purchased but then women's gloves are not built for warmth, and some of us have warm hearts instead of warm hands. The furry wheel cover is not needed on the wheel this time of year but it is handy to wipe off win- dows' fog and" steam on chilly nights. It's also handy to wipe the leaves off the seat when the car windows are left open on windy fall clays. The pie plate in the glove compartment I will admit is unusual. But Lethbridge's pie shop gives you a real pie plate and you just return it when go back for another. If I'm going to pick up a pie on the spur of the moment, the pie plate is right there. It's all very logical to me. The assorted papers on the fioor could probabh be tidied up better but they are all necessary. The little yellow slip is from the dry cleaners. The pocket book is Andy Capp and can be read by you or the children during tedious waits at the doc- tor's office, library calls, or after school pick ups. The white sheet of paper is an address of a house 1 had to visit last week. It didn't help to write the darn thing down because I didn't read it right and got lost anyway The paper serves to remind me that my children are right, I am not infallible. So you see everything is there for a purpose, even the dust on the dashboard. Written in mine at present is one word, coffee. It stays there perman- ently. There are not too many things 1 fear in this world, being fairly intelligent, fairly capable and fairly sceptical of other human life, but the most dreaded occurrence in my life is when the coffee canister is empty at 6 a.m. This latter case is one not so much of prepara- tion as self-preservation. All in all, the car is very convenient. It's well equipped, and I even leave it equipped for anyone else who wishes to drive it, as long as they don't steal the pancake lifter. for Monday's meeting of city j employees at city hall, 407 are council that one type of dis-' aml 51 crimination occurred in the: The bulk of male employees placing of help wanted adver- j tisements in newspapers. into the 41-50 aRe while the majority of female Options arc, however, open to employees is in the 18-30 age the advertiser in all Alberta j dailies as to whether Uie job opportunity should he placed solely for female, solely for male, or open to both sexes. bracket.

Elizabeth Mowland, national ranger adviser, was in the city this week speaking to ranger girls and leaders con- cerning the program. The program was begun three years ago in Winnipeg in an effort to revive interest and better serve the needs of the in- dividual girls. It i? now adopted in ranger organiza- tions across Canada. The need for a different pro- gram was brought to the atten- tion of ranger leaders as an in- creasing number of girls began to drop out of rangers as a i protest. The old program was divided into three heavily structured units land, sea. and air. 11 did not offer the flexibility the girls felt they needed. The present program takes in a greater scope through community, outdoor world, heritage, future, and our- selves and others. Instead of placing the stres on service, the basis of the new program is the individual girl and her development within the i community. The girls are allowed to ini- j tiatc and lead their own pro- jects. Originality and participa- tion are encouraged. The ranger group is open to'week in Alberta, go to B.C. and girls between Uie sges of J4 and continue east until her appoint- 18 years, but younger and older mcnt as adviser terminates, girls are accepted on the de- cision of the group itself.
