Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, October It, 1971 THI ICTHlRIDGt HRAID ami win Volunteers at work in community Need help? Try The People Oslo women win council majority OSLO (AP) The women's liberation movement exploded into action during Norway's mu- nicipal elections. Well planned strategy wiped out men's traditional majorities in several city councils. The women won a 47-38 majority in Oslo, almost doubling their pre- vious representation. A quirk in election laws led to the triumphs. Election lists include the names of each party's official candidates for municipal coun- cils. But voters are allowed to delete one or more names from the list and repeat the names of favorites. It's called cumula- tion. Voters can even wipe out the whole official party listing and substitute another. If such changes are made sys- tematically a few hundred vot- ers can decide municipal coun- By JUDY TURIC Staff Writer "All we want to do is help. Just help anybody that needs it. Just be there if somebody wants wants something." These words came from a young spokesman of The Peo- ple, who snoke with the kind ol emotion that comes from ex- perience, of his hopes and de- sires, for a centre where people could come to if they needed advice, someone to "talk them down" from a bad drug effect, or where ah Indian could sleep without ending up in a jail cell. "Some will want to call it a crisis centre. That's what we, The People, hope it can be- come in the future. Eight now, all just a lot of plans and dreams. We haven't got much going. And we haven't got much support either. But we're try- ing." The People is a group of con- cerned young adults who got together for the pur- pose of assisting any member of the community who feels that he or she needs some form of help. They are w i 1! i n g to give friend-to-friend advice, or sug- gest possible social services to go to for more professional counselling. The group's name, stems from what they are, and '.vho they are for. "Simple we are peo- ple wanting to help people" said the spokesman. The idea for the People came from what these youths feel is an urgent need in the city for such a centre. From being close to the situation, they have decided to come together and try to do something to remedy it. "You can't say there's noth- ing wrong when children come to you looking for or oivi'- nant women worry about where they can sleep for the night. We've seen it." At present, the group is being allowed use of a room at the Central School hostel. Members can provide information and help to people concerning a number of problems. Certain facilities are available to them for the purpose of outside coun- selling. According to the spokesman, "we have a few good connec- alen dar of oca The Quittenbaum Walker section of ACW will meet at the house of Mrs. R. M.

He said the help doesn't have to stop at the centre, but can go on to professional services, if and when those who come want it. "We don't want to empha- size the drug aspect. But it's there. It's a big problem and at the centre we could offer help to someone caught up to it. The big thing is, there'd be no fear (for teens especially) of anyone at the centre inform- ing their parents or calling in the cops. you're soared that's a lot."

I have always believed that sex should be saved for after the marriage vows. While in college I became lonely and depressed. I met a girl, fell in love and we were married. I knew she had had several men before me. Shs told nre about her past and so did a few other people. But I was so much in love I was cer- tain we could surmount all obstacles. Now I find I was wrong. I cannot put her past out of my mind. Her premarital affairs have made her seem cheap. What's worse, I can't trust her. Every time she is a few minutes late I imagine she is back to her old tricks. She swears it is all in my mind, but I can't help it. I am in a con- stant state of anxiety. Suspicion and jealousy are destroying me. 1 have begun to drink heavily. I quit a good job because I can't concentrate on my work. I have lost my ambition and drive. I spend a lot of time crying. Yes, grown men do cry when they have been hurt deeply enough. Please help me. Heartsick In Harrisburg DEAR HARRISBURG: You are mentally ill and your ill- ness is not related to your wife's past but to yours. You said you were lonely and depressed when you met her. This is the first clue. You've been up and down all your life and now you are blaming your present depression on your wife. Get professional help. You need it badly. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I take exception to the suggestion that the typographial errors in the newspaper are the result of Hie typesetters "playing around." I can tell you that we strive daily to achieve excellence in all areas of the com- posing room. Computerized typesetting, new electronic equipment and changing methods require retraining and the acquiring of new skills and (lie daily deadlines must be met, as usual. And though modern technology has changed the equipment and the methods of operation, as in many other industries, the pride in our craft has not diminished. Words are our bread and butter and we do not play around with them in the Composing Room. 1 would like to set THIS letter in type, personally. DEAR 5.L.: Here is it. Be my guest. A recent visit to your Composing Room provided plenty of evidence that there is no time for playing around. Thanks for writing.

The political repre- sentation of each party is based on the number of ballots for it. In good time before the elec- tions, feminist groups here got in touch with a ballot-altering expert, editor Per Hovengen of a small countryside newspaper. Hovengen won a nationwide reputation four years ago when he masterminded the first women's election coup of this type in his own community, Modum- The council there was an all-male 'affair of 47 men. Hovengen helped put 14 on it. Later he printed a 32-page booklet entitled Election Coup, explaining the cumulation sys- tem. A group of 23 feminists in Oslo published an 80-page pa- perback with more details about how women could gain political influence. In Oslo's elections in Septem- ber, the Labor party mayor, Brynjulf Bull, dropped from first to 14th place on the official party list. Eighteen out of the 35 Labor party representatives are women are in the new council. Last term this party had eight. In one of Oslo's heavily popu- 1 a t e d neighbor communities, Asker, the new council consists of 27 women and 20 men. One common method for help- ing elect women is simple. The voter simply writes for cumulated, behind the name of an official female party candi- date. Under this system that person gets two votes instead of one. The system is completely legal. In Asker a new council- woman, Eva Lee Dolva, says: "We can join forces in getting more kindergartens, play- ground, more secure entrance roads to schools, cultural af- fairs, etc. We feel sorry for all those able men forced out of council, but the same could have happened to us."
