Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 TMI LETHMIDQE HERALD Tuesday, OetelMr New wothen MPs sum up victories 26 women defeat male MPs in general election LONDON (AP) "Men start by running an eye over you to see what shape you but they soon accept you as a Helene Middleweek, a new Labor member of Parlia- ment, said on the weekend. That "was how the attractive, vivacious 25- year-old brunette summed up her successful campaign to unseat Lord Balniel, a former Conservative minister, by 520 votes in the general election. Lord Balniel held the Hertfordshire constituency of Welwyn and Hat- field by a edge in the Feb. 28 elections. The new MP celebrated her victory by an-, nouncing she was going on a week's honeymoon. She married solicitor Martin Hayman on Aug. 30, but then had to go straight into her cam- paign. "There wasn't even time to change my name from Middleweek to Hayman on the election she said. Miss Middleweek was one of 26 women elected to the new Parliament compared to 23 who entered the 635-seat Commons in the February elections. Millie Miller, a 51-year-old social worker, was the only candidate to cause an election upset in the 92 constituencies of Greater London. Mrs; Miller, a Laborite, snatched the victory by 778 votes from Tory Tom Iremonger who had held Ilford North constituency in North London for 20 years. "A woman, who is in politics and has got a home of her own is much more conscious of ev- eryday issues than a said Mrs: former mayor of the North London borough of Camden. At Lincoln in east-central England, Margaret Jackson'defeated Labor independent Dick Taverne easily to recapture the seat for her par- ty's left wing. Miss Jackson, 31, tall and elegant, was secretary of a Labor party committee that produced a recent policy document advocating state takeover of the country's top 25 industrial concerns. The newcomers to the House of Commons will join a handful of veteran women politicians. One is Shirley .Williams, 44, who .has held senior posts in several ministries during her rapid rise in the Labor heirarchy. She easily held her seat from Hertford and Stevenage, north of London, beating her Conservative opponent by votes. Mrs. Williams, currently secretary of state for consumer affairs, has been suggested by some political observers as a possible candidate for prune minister if Harold Wilson ever steps down. Barbara Castle, Labor's fiery social services minister, had no trouble holding her seat from the Lancashire constituency of Blackburn, an- area she has represented in Parliament since 1945; During her long career in politics, Mrs. Castle, 62, has acquired a reputation as one of Britain's most provocative. and powerful women politicians since another famous redhead- Queen Elizabeth I. Mrs, Castle has been dubbed "hell-fire on wheels." Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, 49, whose toughness is usually hidden by a prim look and a collection of fancy hats, returns to Parliament on the Conservative side of the aisle. Despite Tory setbacks across the country, Mrs. Thatcher tidily defeated her Labor oppo- nent in the north London suburb of Finchley by votes. Mrs. Thatcher, education minister in the Conservative administration ousted in February, has held the seat, since 1959. Cases of discrimination against men increasing VICTORIA (CP) The director of the British Colum- bia Human Rights Commis- sion wants to stop sexual dis- crimination against men. Kathleen Ruff sajd a number of cases.involving employer discrimination against men have been reported to her office. In one case, a small airline wanted summer help to meet passengers and hand out. tourist information. When a male stuttent applied the employer said: "I want a smiling young Woman to meet ,ttie is a public relations-job." After talking to a human- rights commission worker, the employer agreed that a man could be just a friendly, neat, responsible and able to do the job. He eventually agreed to interview male as FAMILY SNACK Do try our BEAUTY FORM BObY WAVE SPECIAL AT THE LAKEVIEW Salon 263S Pvkskto Dr. Phono 327-4843 LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE 1234-3rd Ave. North This Wssk's Jackpot in 56 Numbers 5 CMK tl r- II OUWP Kt OOUUE DON IUBE 'No one under 1 Shears allowed to play!

Mrs. Ruff said in another case a telephone answering service that boasted about its equal-opportunity hiring prac- tices refused to hire a man for the summer. "This is a women's organ- woman's type of the managfer said. "We just couldn't hire a man." She said the company has changed its policy. In most cases involving dis- crimination against men, complaints are hot lodged because the men are able to find other work, she said Without a written com- plaint, the human rights com- mission can only advise the employer .informally of the violation of the Human Rights Act. Mrs. Ruff said this happened in a number of cases this summer and the problem was: satisfactorily resolved. CRISIS LINE OPENS SASKATOON A rape crisis line went into effect this month at Saskatoon's Community Aid Centre. Mary Arpin, com- munity aid worker, said the centre aims "to give moral "support to the woman" who has been raped, to inform her of her rights and see that she gets proper medical and legal attention.

As recently as four years ago, many women were an- tagonistic to the women's movement, said Joan Wallace, the council's Van- couver representative. Today, these same women were beginning- to embrace changes to put them on equal footing with men in all sectors of society, she added. But many still shied away from the blanket term "women's liberation." This perhaps resulted from the poor image of the women's movement created by the news media. It had tended to focus on militant factions and ignore "middle- of-the-road" groups such as the status of women council. Coverage of women's issues had improved but much'mate- rial still was relegated to day- time-women's programs'on television or the women's pages of newspapers. It should be treated as general news, members of the council said. VOTI AGAINST S John Deere Bldq LETHBRIDQE SAFE WATCH COMMITTCE 920 2nd Avenue A North Phone 327-7142 Men also are adopting a more concerned, favorable stance on equality for women, said Dr. Katie Cooke, council chairman. They now were joining wopien in complaining to the council when they. spotted instances of dis- crimination against females. Dr. Cooke also said after the news conference that she thinks the federal government is moving at a "good pace" in its efforts to end practices and legislation which discriminate on the basis of sex. The House .of Commons' quick reintroductlon of legislation to amend eight federal statutes containing discriminatory measures was an example ofr the government's good intentions.

FLUORIDATION VS THE FAMILY DOCTOR The family doctor has consistently maintained that no drug should be taken without a close and periodic check as to its direct and side ef- fects on your system. All doctors are'aware of the side effects of dif- ferent drugs on different people and because of this any reputable doc- tor will tell you to stop taking the drug should there be undesirable symp- toms. Even though you may show improvement from the medicine; if there are side effects the doctor will discontinue it immediately. How can this be done with a drug such as fluoride in -the water supply? We further note if it is legal to take a powerful drug such as fluoride in indiscriminate doses then we have wasted thousands of dollars in hav- ing these men conduct frequent tests to determine the efficiency of the various drugs prescribed for us. Of further importance as a result of the numerous tests, our doctor is constantly increasing or decreasing the dosage because of his findings as a result of the tests. We shall con- tinue with our doctor under this routine because we think it makes sense. Under the centuries old ethics of the medical profession all phys- icians have taken the Oath of Hippocrates not to harm anyone. No doctor would force upon you any medicine against your will nor conduct experiments of any kind without your consent Where then is the justifi- cation "medicating" an entire population? Or. C.G. Dobbs Ph.D; A.R.C.S. well known English Professor of Microbiology, University of North Wales said: "Fluoridation is of doubt- ful legality; it offends deep convictions concerning doctoring without consent; tt is against the medical tradition of care for the individual; against the function of a public water supply; against sane economics; against the considered opinions of eminent nutritionists, biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists, allergists, toxicologists, above all it is against natural caution and common sense."
