Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta FOURTH SECTION The Lethbrtdge Herald LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1973 PAGES 29-40 World status for Air Canada MONTREAL (CP) The retiring president of Air Canada said Friday he hopes eventually to see the airline operate around the world. John K. Baldwin 61, was in- terviewed after Air Canada's board of directors unex- pectedly announced he will retire Dec. 15 at his own re- quest, five years after becom- ing president. The former federal deputy transport minister was in a jo- vial though somewhat regret- ful mood as he reviewed his own aspirations and those of the airline. At one point he declared: "I sure hope that one of these days the government will come out with a new policy giving us better international scope, and that eventually this will be around the world." Son of a Baptist parson and grandson of a Baptist circuit- rider, the one-time history professor conceded a certain stop-go feeling. In offbeat il- lustration, he recalled that a clergyman once was sold a horse who had been taught to obey the commands "hallelu- jah" and "amen" in place of giddyap and whoa. The new rider was on the The Herald- Family Realistic mannequinn Store displays an- given a louch of realism with the addition of life-like dummies replacing the rigid, haughty mannequinns of yesterday. Ultra-realistic dummies liven up store displays YORK. NY. -So far. rJlla is the only depart- ment store mannequin on record to have come to life. and she is pure fantasy. A fictional heroine. Klla is the beautiful dummy in "Evening Primrose."

Still it would not surprise if something of this sort were actually io occur today. Display mannequins grow c-ver more iike real people. The latest models from Europe, manufac- tured by ilindsgaul. a Danish firm, are images of swinging worlds away from the rigid, haughty dummies of yesterday. As pictured in t h e Hindsgaul catalogues, girl mannequins invade the captain's quarters on a cruise ship, and in action poses they live it. up in the company ol sideburned. mustachioed men manne- quins in murky nightspots. Reportedly selling at a last clip in Europe, the Hindsgaul type is con- sidered a bit "far out" for American luxury stores. Henry Callahan, Saks Filth Avenue's vice-president in charge of decoration, prefers a ladylike brand of realism created by Mary Brosnan, the queen bee of U.S. mannequin-makers whose work is distributed by D. G. Williams. Mr. Callahan considers her work better suited to his cuslomer. "I also use California's Wolf Vine Greneker. Their mannequins are alluring but in good taste." he says. Europe is doing a thing for street people. We have a different message to put across." Other display directors say the action-postured mannequins are hard to dress, particularly in pan- Is, although they find such ultra-realistic dummies as those by London's Adel Hoot stein appropriate for sportswear. Mrs. Rootstein made news in the 1960's with casually stanced look alikes of such fashion figures as Twiggy, the Vicomtesse de Ribes. and a lady of uncertain age modelled alter Laurie Newton Sharp, a Marrods' executive1. Since then, she has done Lord Patrick Lichfield, the trendy British photographer, and lines called New Men, Aristocrat. Superstar, and. most recently. Plump and Pretty. The current furor over the new realism does not strike Mary Brosnan as innovative. She says realism began in 1941. which e o i n c i d e n t a 11 y happens ?o be the vcar she started in business by doing a dummy in the im- age of a girl in the fashion office of Bonwit Teller.

Overcome with relief when the horse finally stopped, he shouted "hallelu- jah." "Maybe that's the way it is with me." Mr. Baldwin con- fessed with a grin. "It has been a rewarding and stimulating period. Air Canada has been my prime in- terest ever since I became connected with transportation over 20 years ago." The airline's appreciation was expressed by Yves Pratte, Air Canada's chair- man, who came to the post with Mr. Baldwin in 1968, succeeding the late Gordon R. McGregor. With regards international routes, Mr. Baldwin told a re- porter the publicly-owned air- line's first "big service responsibility is to Canada and Canadians." "Canadians travel a lot in- ternationally so we have a job in that respect, too. In the in- ternational field we have to be very sure that what we do is economically self-supporting and justified to an even greater degree than in Canada. Air Canada and Canadian' Pacific Airlines are in sharp competition for new inter- national routes negotiated by the Canadian government. Air Canada now goes to the United States, the West In- dies. Europe and Moscow. Mr. Baldwin said growth brings its own problems, and the character of the airline had changed greatly in 20 years. He described with con- siderable warmth the role of a national airline in Canadian life and declared: "I don't think this country could survive as well or be as well served if we had only a collection of private good as they might be." "The role of a national air- line is to provide in a com- petitive and commercial framework which is essen- tial for the type of services and rate structures that will serve the Canadian need and contribute to the growth of the country, whether on our own or on a planned basis in conjunction with other airlines."

Education minister appoints woman school superintendent VANCOUVER Kileen Dailly. British Columbia's minister of (.'duration, has appointed Frances Fleming as the province's first woman dis- trirl superintendent of schools. Airs. Fleming, vice prin- cipal of Magee secondary school here with 29 years of leaching experience behind her. outlined her views on education in an interview. She said Vancouver is "in the vanguard of educational change." "1 don't think people e how much philosophical change has Hone on in (he past few years. The elementary schools used to be com'- plctely separate from the secondary schools it used to be a closed shop. "With the new K-12 con- ccpl kindergarten to Grade 12 there has been so much more understanding ol the mutual aims ol people." She said more emphasis is being placed on the child finally. "Vancouver also is in the vanguard in con- sidering alternatives to education, wi t h the philosophy that every child should be accommodated in the school system in a way that is meaningful to him. "Yet 1 would like to see the K-12 system taken all the way from the cradle to I he grave. There should be many more opportunities lor adults to come into tlie secondary schools and take courses." she said. should consider the educalion of family units just as any other sort of education." "There should be some light, shed in some very dark corners, with im- pediments to educational progress being removed." she' said in an interview. One of the dark corners is I lie rigid curriculum divided into subjects in 1J.C. secondary schools. "Somehow or other we have to restructure the high schools so that there is much more learning going on ol related sub- jects. "This would involve, for ex a iii pie. adopting a humanities approach to, I'jiglisli. art and social studies and removing the compartments."
