Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 18, 1t74 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Velvet gives warmth to modern furniture TORONTO (CP) Velvets conjure up the picture of traditional and period fur- nishings. But the experts say it has helped give modern furniture much of its appeal today, adding warmth and texture to what only a few years ago was considered a somewhat sterile environment. So if you've been thinking of buying modern furniture, but want to retain the visual comfort of traditional, look at some of the new velvet upholstery fabrics that now are in the stores. The neutral taupe, browns and earth particularly popular, for they add both warmth and elegance to the cool look of steel or chrome and glass as well as blonde woods. Velvet also adds texture to a room of neutrals. A room decorated completely in neutral tones without texture would be bland to say the least and the big secret is the addi- tion of texture as supplied by velvets, homespun fabrics, leather or furs, natural woods or cork, baskets, plants and the like to bring it all to life. But in addition to the neutrals, velvets come in many colors and patterns and are actually setting the pace in styling and color. For instance, according to Alan Cam- paigne, designer for Sanderson Canada, there are new velvet textures in three- dimensional contemporary patterns that have been specially co-ordinated with geo- metries and stripes so that all the work is done for you. You can use a pattern such as a bold geometric design on a sofa, a co- ordinated stripe on one chair and a solid on another. One color co-ordinated combination of a stripe, floral and solid have the un- mistakable colors of the tones of rose and apricot, indigo, chartreuse and would be ideal on one of the new soft-edge bulky padded sofas or chairs with lots of cushioning, from that era that now are having a comeback. Put in a setting of chrome and glass or even white moulded plastic tables, chests and etageres, the ef- fect would be stunning. Velvet, too, is the perfect fabric to use in an eclectric setting where modern and traditional furnishings are used together. For velvet is as at home on a Louis XV parlor chair as it is on one of the several copies of the famous Eames chair in the stores today. And for this reason, it can be the connecting link in effectively decorating in the eclectir manner. For the traditionalists there has never been anything quite like velvet and they haven't been forgotten in the new offerings. There are also many cut and un- cut velvets, available in handsome moires, polka dots, brocades and stripes, as well as a host of solids. So whatever your style preference, velvet upholstery fabrics might just be what you're looking for to pull your decorating scheme together this fall.

Vera X INSERTED BY VERA FERGUSON ELECTION COMMITTEE Strap I Wetfrweday 930 to UM your Eaton Account Buy Council concerned with single parents9 status "It's for my husband. Do you have a golf club that will wrap around a tree without Ann Landers EATON'S Dear Ann Landers: I can't possibly talk to anyone about this problem and when I tell you what it is you will unders- tand why. I am 27 and was divorced in 1972. My husband was an older man and I discovered too late he was an alcoholic. He refus- ed to get help. I confess I married him because I had an out-of-wedlock son who need- ed a father, and this man appeared to like the boy. In January I married a charmer, 35, movie-star hand- some, who had never married. Ed and I went together only a few months but I was sure he would be the perfect husband and father. Now I need to know how a woman can tell if her husband is bisexual. Before we were married Ed was a very good lover, but these past five months he has barely touched' me. I've asked him to discuss his declining interest in sex and he says he still loves me but he just doesn't feel like it. Four nights last week Ed was out with "the boys." He works in a field I won't name, but most of them are homosexuals. How can I tell for sure? Is this grounds for divorce? Alone Alot Dear Alone: It's unlikely you'll be able to tell for sure, but from your letter I suspect your hunch is correct. These days, in most states, divorces are granted for "in- compatability" and "irrecon- cilable differences." I'd say you have both. Dear Ann Landers: I was divorced a few months ago and my ex-husband is driving me nutty. He has the key to the house and gives me only part of my alimony and child support because he says I am not competent to handle that much money. The man walks in on us whenever he feels like it. He rummages around in my closets and drawers looking for telephone messages, letters whatever. He makes a' general search and questions the children as to what's going on. What burns me up is that he is always making vulgar passes and obscene remarks. He thinks that because he pays alimony he is entitled to the privileges of a husband. The last time he tried to drag me into the bedroom I gave him a black eye. The court granted him visiting privileges (to see the children) on Saturdays and Sundays, but he spends those two days harassing me and paying no attention to them. I've told him I don't want him around but it does no good. Will you please tell me what to do about this pest so I can lead a normal life? A Married Divorcee Dear M: Go to your lawyer and follow bis instructions. There are several tilings yon can do. First, you can have the locks on your doors changed. Second, deliver the kids to ffiM and make it clear that he is not to set foot in your home. The law will protect you on .this one. If he shows cp, be is "inviolation and you cut call the police. The lawyer can demand that he give yon the child support and alimony, in total. If he fails to do so, be is again in trouble with the law. Yon have the right to be left alone, and if you. put up with any more of his shenanigans, you subconsciously enjoy it Dear Ann Landers: It's taken me until now to simmer down after reading the letter from the young man who wanted to picket the doctor's office because be was sent a bill for 140 after removing a planter's wart I have been a medical assistant's secwtaryior near- ly three years and I am sick of bearing complaints like this First of an, a doctor is a professional man who has studied, worked and sacrific- ed many precious hours of leisure that many of us take for granted. My boss as at the hospital at 6 a.m. to make his rounds. He pinch hits for other doctors, does clinic work, attends meetings and is in his office at to see patients. His bills are reasonable, yet I must spend hours sending out "reminders" and telephoning patients about long-overdue remittances. It's strange how they turn from sick and desperate people to deadbeats. They MUST see the doctor at once because they are dying! When they get well they'd rather have died than pay their bill. Thanks for listening, Ann. I feel better now. Teed Off Dear T. D.: I hope the kid who had the planter's wart sees your letter. And for the record, the price was NOT high. If the job was well done and the wart was removed permanently, he got a bargain. OTTAWA (CP) The status of one-parent families appeared as a prime concern in a committee report to the Advisory Council on the Status of Women. Urging the government to issue a policy statement on one-parent families, the report said the current approach of "picking up the pieces when ruin has over- come the parent or children" no longer would do. "Our present financial- yardstick approach to the problem of 'women alone with dependent children' must be the report said. The report recommended a guaranteed basic income for one-parent families, increas- ed taxation including a higher basic ex- emption, deductible home help and an allowance in the tax system to acknowledge the homemaking contribution of mothers. The report added that 78 per cent of all one-parent families are headed by women and that tone-parent families comprise nine per cent of the family groups in the country. The council also heard Health Minister Marc Lalonde assure it that the government was not dragging its feet in getting women-oriented legislation into Parliament. He said a bill to eliminate sexual inequalities from the Canada Pension Plan Act died with the last Parliament but will be reintroduced, a revised Citizenship Act will be in- troduced this week and a mo- tion for establishment of a hu- man rights and special interests commission will be introduced before Christmas. Under the Citizenship Act revisions, he said, a woman would be allowed to stay in Canada even if the husband is deported, either parent could apply for naturalized citizenship for a minor child and would eliminate residence requirements for an alien spouse of a Canadian citizen. Mr. Lalonde said the special-interests commission still is under study by himself and the justice department, but would have full scope to deal with problems of women. He also said revision of the Criminal Code to eliminate abortion as a criminal offence would not be placed before the House this session Motherhood obstacles HALIFAX (CP) The ob- stacles to motherhood, both fi- nancial and fromvthe stand- point of privacy, are greater in the United States than in Canada, says the director of a Halifax organization. Shirley Arab, head of the Halifax chapter of Birthright, attended the annual meeting of the international organiza- tion in Chicago recently and said she is happy her group does not have to contend with many of the maternity care problems that arise in the U.S. HAD LONG LIFE The 608-ton windjammer Actaeon, .built at Quebec in 1810, was still in active ser- vice sailing out of Norway in 1905.
