Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta lotorday, October H, 1972 THJ lElHBRIDGE HERAID 21 of marine WOT become endangered species Nova Scotia top beauty NICE AND EASY DOES IT, THIS TIME AROUND Round-faced and rosy-cheeked, that's Anne Murray, and she knows she couldn't change tho wholesome image if the tried. But she changed a lot of heads, including her own, with a gig at the Biller End in New York. Now she smiles a lot more and sings even "better, knowing she can perform to any audience and have people enjoy it. Apostle advocates self-love Liberation minus drastic modification LONDON" (CP) Britain's latest apostle of women's lib- eration believes women mast learn to !ovo themselves. To help this about, Elaine Morgan, a retiring, 52- year-old Welshwoman from Glamorganshire, has written a book, her first, which traces the biological evolution of women. The Descent of Woman puts forward the argument that ev- olution has in no way been a male-centred phenomenon. Neither as radical nor as shrill as some women's lib proponents, Mrs. Morgan's conviction seems to be that women can achieve liberation without any drastic modifica- tion of the existing social structure, Mrs. Morgan believes thai if women can overcome feelings of inadequacy or shame and develop "a love for them- then a new relation- ship of strong mutual resp-: can be dev eloped between DOMINION REBEKAH LODGE NO. 41 ANNUAL BAZAAR and TEA Thursday, Oct. 19th 2 !o 5 p.m. I.O.O.F. HALL EVERYBODY WELCOME) male and female. Her theory holds that mil- lions of years ago, during an extended, scorclung drought, "ape-woman and her mate" migrated to the seashore and acquired most of their human characteristics as they adapted to a semi-aquatic life. They began walking up- right, losing their body hair and using weapons. But she contends that the female acquired those charac- t e r i s t i c s which now are usually equated with sex ap- peal as a result of environ- mental needs and not in re- sponse to the whims or de- sires of the male hunter. For example, the female dc- veolpcd breasts s imply to ena- ble her offspring to feed more casilv and comfortably. She developed buttocks, as did the male to a lesser extent, be- cause much of her lime was spent sitting on the beach wilh an infant on her lap. As a result of buttock devel- opment, it became more diffi- cult for the male to mate with the female from the rear, says Mrs. Morgan, and they shifted to a face-to-face posi- tion at the male's insistence. Since then, she says, the fe- male has usually experienced some difficulty wilh orgasm simply because her sexual or- gans have not yet adapted to the change. She contends there is not a shred of scientific evidence to indicate that the male is in any way superior to the fe- male, eitticr biologically or in terms of intelligence. MONTREAL (CP) Diana Magor says some of her best friends arc sea-cows. So she plans to spend part of next winter doing whatever possi- ble lo save them from extinc- tion. She described the roly-poly creatures as "something'like a big fat cigar" ami the "un- derdogs of the marine world." To be more specific, tlw sea-cows Diana is interested in weigh about pounds as adults, have heavy, flat tails, two front flippers, arc also known as South American manatees and live in the Am- azon River. Most important, said Diana, !s the fad that after 50 mil- lion years sea-cows are an en- dangered species. Hence her trip to the Amazon this Nov- ember. "It's vitally important MS to determine how abundant the sea-cows are because if they get down to a critically low level they won't be able to find each other to breed. As U is. we think they only produce offspring on an average of every three and then only one calf in most cases, though occasionally two will be born." During pre-med studies, she took a course in scuba-diving and was side- tracked by the fascination of underwater life. Since graduation, from Aca- dia University in Nova Scotia and Stanislaus College in Cali- fornia, Diana has worked at the Undersea Gardens in Vic- toria, collect ipg, caring for and displaying marine ani- mals. She has also carried out a pollution study on the ef- fects of human population on. a previously uninhabited is- land in (he Bahamas and studied whale populations in the north Atlantic for the fish- eries research board of Can- aria. She hopes to receive finan- cial aid for her expedition from the Marine Science Centre at McGill University but is prepared to go it alone on her waitress earnings if no grants are forthcoming. Fewer than 10 scientists have done research on the sea-cow, although it has long skins for leather and also good a I cleaning channels- eating an average 100 pounds of vegetation daily. "It's been overlooked causc it's kind ci a sluggish, unexciting animal, docile and without an enemy in the world except Diana said. "It doesn't do anything cute, like the dolphin leaping out of the water." go HALIFAX (CP) Miss Nova Scolia will not be sent to tha Miss Canada pageant In To- ronto because of (he costs in- volved.

They didn't like the way entrants were treated, Mr. Thomson said. Miss Payne says she would go, "if Nova Scotia wants mo to."
