Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 1970 MAXI HAS MINI SAFETY The Alberta Motor Asso- ciation has stepped out in the fashion world to warn women drivers about the dangers of the max! skirt. Ac- cording to a news release, the girl above, left, can just barely clear her feet to reach the pedals and could be- come entangled when suddenly applying the brakes. The girl in the mini, right, is free to make any necessary moves from accelerator to braxe. Status Report OTTAWA (CP) ParSaroent will be asked to consider the report of the royal commission on the status of women when it is received. The one-sentence mention of the commission was included in the speech from the throne Thursday. Although a date is not men- tioned in the speech, the govern ment apparently hopes to re- ceive the report before the end of the year. About a year ago the commis- sion extended its planned dead- line of December, 1969, and il was thought that the report would be ready in the spring. Al hat time commission chairman Am Francis said the main rea- son for the delay was the all-en- compassing nature of the com- mission's mandate to look into everv aspect of the status ol women. The commission was ap- ibinted in February, 1S67, by ormer prime minister Lester "'earson and instructed to rec- ommend what steps the federal government could take to en- ure female equality with men n all aspects of Canadian soci- ety. Miss Francis is am Ottawa Broadcaster who is Mrs. John Sird in private life. LEISTER'S LTD. Campus Corner By MARIE HRYNKIW Catholic Central column may seem, to a bit more peculiar, than usual. There are, of course, two very good reasons for this: the first being that whatever meagre creative powers I may have once possessed have been re- cently put to -use signing the multitudes of yearbooks (ours being the which suddenly appeared before my dazed and tired eyes. The sec- ond reason is even better- lack of food "food for thought" of since I am recovering from a tonsil- lectomy.) While I was away, undoubted- ly great things were happening at our school, (I school of approximately S50 students something has just got to happen in a weeks time.) Last Friday, instead of our usual (sometimes infamous) assembly, our students council decided to do something daring and different so for a change, they did. We had our first "Ac- tivities' Three of the (mentionable) activities from among which students could choose were: Some form of sports (I didn't hear too much about car- toons (1 suppose that is the level best suited to some of us.) And finally, a performance TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.M. by those great folk singers "The We Two" (Which is wha everybody I talked to had at tended.) Since we dp have a fair num. her of experiments going on in our halls (just ask the Chem teacher) last years student's council decided, one more wouldn't hurt, and that this term we would have, instead o home rooms, a house system The students; (groups made up of Grades and 12) are di vided into four houses sup posedly equal and supposedly promoting school or team "spirit5', for chiefly recrea- tional purposes. Since one 01 my main goals is to live to old age I shall refrain from com- ment and change the subject. As you all can't help but real- is football season again, At present our Cougars are in second place in league stand- ings, but I am sure this wil change in Friday night's game (to first of course.) Al- though the weather may be cold and bitter our spirits wil remain warm and animated as we excitedly watch our team battle to victory! (The views voiced in tie above column do not neces- sarily concur with either those of The Herald or Lei- ster's, hot are a reflection of the srndcnt opinion.) LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERS!

She does not feel that, as a woman, she has been Handicapped in life. jiTLL YOUNG The Lethbridge YWCA celebrated the 100th anniversary of YWs in Canada with an international lea in the lodge this week.

House-Bound Mothers Meet For Think-Tank Discussion By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) House- wives Register is a kind of friendly think tank for house- bound mothers. National organizer Jean Wylie of suburban Toronto called it a "non-organization" that offers women a chance to hear and talk about topics other than children and laun- dry. "Our prims purpose is intel- ligent conversation, discussion started by she said in an interview. ''We want to draw the woman who has been at home with chil- dren out of herself, out of her home, out of her feeling of complete responsibility for her family, and encourage her to express herself, her own identity. "Housewives are so inun- dated by magazines, televi- sion, radio. There is nil this stuff coming in and nothing going out. You might chat a few minutes in the Library with someone, but who ever had an intelligent conversa- tion in the supermarket? "We need to identify with other Women in our own situa- tion, learn to know the similar interests of other housewives. Especially if you're new in an area, by the time you sift through the neighbors, it's dif- ficult to find people who share your interest in yoga or litera- ture or whatever." STARTED IN ENGLAND Housewives Register began in England, and was brought to Canada by Anne Cossey two years ago. She has since returned to England, but while she lived in Cooksyille, Ont, her efforts resulted in the formation of Register groups in Montreal and To- ronto. Mrs. Wylie said groups now exist in almost all prov- inces. The groups meet in mem- bers' homes. They may have discussions based on research done by members, or they may invite speakers. J.Irs. Wylie said Toronto groups have heard talks on pollution, feminism, abortion, police work and service groups in the community. "We can provide a stepping stone out of the home into the community and service work. A woman may say, 'I'd like to do something, but don't know what.' She may hear a speaker from the Children's Aid or a hospital, and before she knows it she's going to be involved in her community. We want her to enlarge her 1. Izons as imxh as she's willing to do." Mrs. Wylie said anyone in- terested in forming or joining the H o u s e w i v e s Register should write to her. She will give them advice and mate- rial to help form a group, or put them in touch with local people already organized. Her address is: Mrs. James Wylio, 88 Clementine Square, Scarborough 723, Ont.

MP s Attend Formal Ball By SUSAN BECKER OTTAWA (CP) External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp didn't attend the parliamentary ball at Government House Wednesday night. He was busy at a news con- 'erence calling on the kidnap- jers of British diplomat James ss to name a negotiator for ;alks with federal authorities about the kidnap victim's re- lease. But despite the uneasy atmos- jhere over the capital, many >ther members of Parliament, senators and senior civil serv- ants tried to forget their cares and keep life running normally >y kicking up their heels at for- mal ball, traditionally held the evening before the opening of a new session. Prime Minister Trudeau was one of the approximately 300 guests at the ball held by Gov- ernor-General and Mrs. Mich- ener at their stately stone man- sion, Rideau Hall. He didn't bring a date and after moving through the re- ceiving line behind Energy Min- ster J. J. Greene and Mrs. Greene, he jokingly asked nearby reporters what they were writing about the womens' gowns. HAS 'GOOD LOOK' Asked for his opinion, he only said: "I'm going to have a good ook at them." After chatting for a while at he rear of the pale blue and jolii ballroom, ho had his first lance of the evening with a hrilled teenager, 17-year-old Ruth Benjamin, daughter of Les Benjamin, the New Democrat member for R e g i n a -L a k e Centre. Despite the gaiety, the spectre of abduction was in the background, and more than one MP remarked that security at the event seemed tighter than usual An informant said, how- ever, that security was normal with the exception of two plain- clothes police among the crowd. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield and Mrs. Stanfield were also among the dancers. The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LEIHBRiDGii GASH BINGO ST. BASIL'S HAU-Cor. 13th St. and 6th Ave. N.
