Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, October 13, 1971 ADDING MYSTERY TO THE BIKINI The bikini is alive and well but hidden under a voluminous see-through caftan, left, in this design by Elizabeth Stewart. The multi- colored caftan hides a navy blue bikini. Right is a matching navy one-piece with buckles across the bustline. The suits are part of the swimwear display at California Fashion Creators' showings, Bikini as under-dressing LOS ANGELES (AP) The: der says a spokes-i control" elastic panels sewn bikini is alive and well and liv- man.

(AP) When Donna Jo McDonotigh ex- changed her airline stewardess wings for a berth aboard an in- ternational cruise ferry, she began to develop a flair for co- ping with the unexpected. As assistant purser on the Swedish-operated Prince of Fundy, the vivacious 24-year-old blonde emerged as the ship- board troubleshooter, with her own toolbox to (leal with sudden emergencies. At one time or another, Donna served as nurse, and general handy- you live on a ship, you're confined to your own Jo has plumber man. When floating she explained. "When something must be done right away, you figure out a way to do it, because you can't summon help the way you could on land." Such tasks as repairing a clogged drain in a passenger cabin or a broken slot machine in the vessel's popular casino are apt to come up at any time during her 16-to-18-hour work dhy. Donna Jo's daily routine be- gins at a.m., when she helps prepare for disembarka- tion at Yarmouth, N.S., and ends around midnight, three hours after the ferry's depar- ture from Portland. She supervises the hostesses, helps maintain the ship's docu- ments, signs on tha crew and of- fers advice- and sympathy to passengers wary of the roll and pitch in (he 10-hour voyage across the sometimes choppy Gulf of Maine.

Her reason for leaving? "I got fed up with irregular hours and passenger com- plaints." Malta's clip joints empty VALLETTA, Malta (AP) Millie and Lily, Tessie and Stelle sit around Laddy's Bar, the Happy Return and Chicko's for their ship to come in. "I sometimes do a strip-tease to make the girls laugh." said Millie. "But mostly we read, knit and watch television." These are the girls of Strait Street, Malta's red light district. Known to sailors as the Gut, it is a downhill cobbled alley of glaring clip joints near Vallet- ta's main shopping street. Sailors from Britain, the United States, and most coun- tries of Europe have for genera- tions headed for the Gut the mo- ment they left ship in this cross- roads of the Mediterranean. But no more. As a negotiating manoeuvre with the West, Prime Minister Dom Mintoff: has banned the U.S. 6th Fleet from the island and kept the British navy out.

BLAZER COMING BACK Sprtswear showings later in the week are expected to give California's blessing to the re- turn of the blazer, and add West Coast interpretation to the classic chic of pants skirts and sweaters and day- j time suits. Hot pants are still j around, but last season's bla- j tantly hare look is toned down by over skirts for 1972. The California design group marks its 21st birthday this year, and early showings gave an impression of a distinctly adult fashion philosophy. Real- ism is replacing fantasy. Cute- ness is out; sophistication is in. The reformation of the bikini is the first signal of the big switch. finding you are lost without him. CARL PICKLES First vice president of Uie Alber- ta Association of Nursing Or- derlies. Orderlies meet at Red Deer Lethbridge resident Carl Pickles was elected 1st vice- 1 president of the Alberta Asso- ciation of Nursing Orderlies, at the annual conference held re- cently in Red Deer. Mr. Pickles is a member of the staff at Lethbridge Munici- pal Hospital, and has held posi- tions on previous association ex- ecutive boards for a total of four years. Ted of Edmonton is the new president, with R. Trows- dale, CaJgary, 2nd vice presi- dent. The two day educational seminar emphasized the impor- tance of the nursing orderly in the hospital and the comprehen- sive, 40 week training pro- gram provided by the schools for nursing orderlies in Edmon- ton and Calgary. Highlighting the other sub- jects under discussion was a clinic on venereal disease and its symptoms, under the direc- tion of Mr. 0. Tabbert, RN, of the Alberta department of so- cial hygiene.

Strait Street is in dire straits. "We used to take a night when the 6th Fleet was in." re- called Tessie at one bar. That's 'We just stay open now in the hope someone, anyone, will drop in." She perked up momentar- ily: "Last week a Canadian gentleman called and spent, "I've got 10 children, and we've got to eat. So I borrow money from the owner and hope the ships will come soon." Kaid Millie, a buxom woman of about 45: "I've been here al- most 30 years and I've never known it so bad."

"The boys spent all their times they left to go back to ship with only their trousers on. "There are no prostitutes here, she looks up sharply. "We are hostesses." The girls and bar owners har- bor little resentment against Mintoff for banning their sources of sustenance by seek- ing more money for Malta's fa- cilities. They have faith he will get around to solving their prob- lems soon. VIE VINCENT nUIST N A (Reuter) man, due lo war casualties and migration, and it was natural for women to take over jobs as crane operators, truck and bull- dozer drivers. In the Soviet Union it was normal during and after the war for women to engage in monotonous back-breaking chores to release men for more skilled tasks. Throughout the whole region, (luring the feverish reconstruc- tion period of the Stalinist 1950s when predominantly peasant economies were forced into heavy industrialization, women learned what a mine looked like underground, how to pour ce- ment into a dam and how to psrch on girders high above big construction jobs. Now, with mechanization and rising living standards, women's work in Eastern Eu- rope tends to be physically less arduous, although in the Soviet Union and elsewhere some still work at tough building and re- pair jobs. But it remains true that many women are in economic bon- dage. It is little wonder that so many East European social studies these days focus on the In East Germany after the falling birth rate, on divorce, fa- Second World War there were tigue and the rising infertility of three or four women to each I working women. Women's life styles in East Eu- rope would hardly satisfy the women's liberation fighters of the West, even though sexual equality is enshrined In Socialist constitutions. And the kind of aggressive, politically aimed demand for emancipation that marks the women's liberation movement elsewhere does not exist in the countries of East Europe. Women there are too busy earning salaries and tending families to have much energy left over for that kind of strug- gle. In 1919, Lenin said: "Let there be work, of payment, to rest and leisure." The principle still gets reverent lip service. But Western observers find that in Soviet reality, conserva- tism, discipline, even prudery, take precedence over such ques- tions as sexual equality.
