Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 'Grossly inferior9 system hinders women athletes "Funds, facilities, coaching, rewards and honors allotted to women athletes are grossly inferior to those granted to a sparse audience at the Lethbridge Public Library was told Wednesday evening. Jane Schwindt, a third year physical education stu- dent at the University of Lethbridge and native of Fort Macleod, said although .women have made great strides since they first, became actively involved in athletics 50 years ago, they still have a long way to go. And society's attitudes, paren- tal influences, school programs and meagre media coverage is not helping them much in their fight for accep- tance. She was speaking at a public presentation, "Women in jointly sponsored by the library and the Women's Place. "In many cases, there is never any opportunity for a girl to play a team sport in grade school, junior high or public recreation said Ms Schwindt, herself a skilled sportswoman. "it is hard to say how good women athletes could really be, if given the same facilities, coaching and equip- ment men receive." She cited cultural influences as a major factor in shaping women's attitudes towards sports, girls are raised to be docile and ladylike while boys are expected to be aggressive and tough. Women athletes, she said, must bear a great burden whether they succeed or fail "If she does not excel, she is a failure If she rises to "the top, she must cope with at- titudes saying she is superwoman, almost a freak." But male athletes get recognition and adulation as a matter of course, she added. Ms. Schwindt debunked the usual arguments given to prove that women are not good athletes, saying most of them were "absolute non-' Athletics are not too rigorous for women, despite what some men say, she emphasized, and will not coarsen or masculinize a woman but will improve her conditioning and appearance. To those who would say women's sports are not -as high in calibre as men's, Ms Schwindt countered, "But women have no( had the time, the good coaching or the money spent on them." And as for the argument saying girls are not interested in sports, she cited the state of Idaho where a state wide emphasis on high level physical educa- tion programs for both boys and girls has indicated girls have both interest and ability, if given a chance. Lethbridge, she said, is a good example of a city where not much attention is paid to women's spprts. "A new hockey team, the Broncos gets but no new programs for women's sports are even being considered" ff The local media, she said, gives meagre or sporadic coverage to women's sports and sports writing in general and tends to pay more atten- tion to "the shape of her legs, the color of her eyes and hair and her bosom" than the sportswoman's expertise. "Women as mothers should encourage their daughters to run, jump, and learn to throw a baseball. Booklets free to senior folks Booklets written especially to deal with senior citizens' financial and nutritive problems are now available from the Lethbridge Red Cross. Free of charge, both booklets may be picked up at the local Red Cross office 12th Street and 17 Avenue; house bound seniors may obtain the publications by calling Red Cross volunteers, or the office at 327-7117.

TORONTO (CP) The president of the Children's Ap- parel Manufacturers' Associa- tion said Tuesday children's wear may become less fashionable in the future. Norman Latsky told the Toronto Fashion Group that the only way to keep clothing, costs down may be to reduce the number of styles "and br- ing the. children's wear market into an area of staple items with minor trimming op- tions." He said that by the 1960s, fewer than 10 retail organizations may be respon- sible for 80 per cent of all children's wear sold in Canada "These retail giants, relying now on computerized buying, would inevitably result in larger purchases of fewer Mr. Latsky said. An informative television program for senior citizens is one of the newest projects of the Canadian Red Cross Society. _ Eileen Anderson, the direc- tor of family health for the Alberta division of the CRCS, says her organization will probably become even more involved in programs for senior citizens in the near future. But for starters, she's eager that retired people living at home become aware of the in- valuable information about their local community con- tained in the Red Cross sponsored television program. The program, Especially for Seniors began this week on CFCN television. To be broadcast every Monday at 10 a.m, from October through January, the series is intended to "promote good health through physical fitness, ac- tivity and involvement" and is of special interest to "singles or couples living at Mrs. Anderson says sometimes senior citizens independently maintaining their own homes run a danger of becoming the "forgotten or ignored" segment of society. "Pensioners in lodges and nursing homes get more atten- tion and seem to have more access to community ser- she says. "The older citizens living on their own may withdraw or may not know what resources are available to them Hostess for the program is Elisha Rasmussen; Lethbridge Red Cross co- ordinator for the program is Betty Graham.
