Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Oelober 50, I97J IHE ItTHBRIDGt HERAIB _ Record unlikely to be broken despite feminist agitation By DAVE THOMAS OTTAWA (CP) Despite years of feminist agitation (or equality and representation, there is little chance that more than a handful of women will reach the Commons Oct. 30. In fact, it seems unlikely that the 1964 record of six women MPs will be matched. That pre- diction is based on the views of party officials and study of past voting patterns. AH but four ot the 71 female candidates face an uphill fight on the basis of tlie 1968 show ings of their parties. But at least one constituency appears certain to send woman to the Commons: In the Quebec riding of Lonis-Hebcrt all four major parlies are offer- ing female candidates agains' another for the Parti Quebecois and a lone male running as an independent. The Liberals won the riding by more than 20.000 votes last time and because o that record their candidate, Al lanie Morin, has grounds for Liberals, Sauve in lontidcnce. Two Montreal broadcaster Jeanne Ahuntsic and Monique Begin in it. Michel, also are given a ,jood chance of holding the Lib- sral majorities given by their idings in 1968. LONE WOMAN New Democrat Grace Mac- jinis, the only woman sitting in the Commons when the elec- tion was called, won Van- couver- Kings way by about ballots in 1963 and her detent this time would be an unex- pected upset since she and her New Democratic Party prede- cessors have held the riding foi the last 10 years. But all the other women fighting boih to reverse pro vious electoral recorde and what many consider reluctance to trust a woman with a "man's work." Much of the responsibility to the lack of female contender: LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By MARY ANN TUILSON Lcthbriflge Collegiate Inslitute It seems that we just start- ed school and now here we are within two weeks ot report cards. Students will be called to tlieir home rooms to receive them on Oct. 30. Now for the good news. Our football team, the LCI Rams is in first place and due to meet the Winston Churchill Bulldogs at Henderson Park to- night. If the Rams fake this one they are virtually assured ot an entry into (lie championship game with Medicine Hat. Fol- lowing tonight's game we wil be celebrating our victory wilh a dance at the LCI. The band playing is Freeway. The LCI Colts are hard training and conditioning ir preparation for tlie basketbal team selection. After colliding wilh one of these aspirants as he was jogging down the main hall, I atn convinced that the Colt's future opponents won' have a chance. Friday tlie thirteenth wa dubbed Greaser Day by our stu dents council. We have se aside this day as one where ev cryone comes to school dress e as a greaser. The usual is, ligl short pants, greased back hai and long skirts. But there wer many fascinating variations. Mrs. Melling has chosen th: year's LCI drama presentation It will be Rodger and Hamme stein's musical Carousel. Th choral parts will begin practi ing next week. Speaking par will be chosen the second wee in December. The play will eventually involve 70 actors and singers. Last week a bus load of stu- dent drama enthusiasts travel- led to Calgary to see the stage production Butterflies Are Free. The I rip was arranged by Mrs. Welling and judging by com- ments of the participants it was very successful. The student reaction to the new Grade 12 departmental exam policy has been positive. It's easier on the student to know his final mark will be de- by a teacher who knows lira personally and not by some omputer in Edmonton. Teachers have been submit- rng names of students 'to be tiosen for Lethbridge's Reach The Top team. This is a earn of academically Inclined tudents who, if they win, will on to compete with teams rom other areas on a televi- ion presentation. LCI regrets losing a good member of it's teacliing staff. Jones has served LCI as a Social Studies teacher and as a !ounsellor. He will move to Cal- jary where he will hold the po- sition of personnel manager of he Calgary Public School Board. Our foster child, four-year-old Domingo Olimpiado has writ- ,en us a letter from the Phil- jpines. He and his father are belter health and the family benefiting from the aid we have been sending. He says his mother would like a sewing machine. (I think his mother helped him wrile the k Mr. Stead's Social class will be holding a mock election. They hope to get some indica- tion of student opinion in re- spect to the upcoming national election. By the way there is no truth to the rumor that the school cafeteria Is going to n safe party ridings must be aid on the party organizations hemselves, says the two-year ild report of the royal commis sion of the status of women. It is at the conslituency evcl that disparagement of women candidales and Ihe belief thai a woman candidate will lose votes are usually en- countered. Women who have been successful at the polls confirm that winning the nomi- nation is a more formidable hurdle than winning the elec- tion. NDP HAS MOST The New Democrats have nominated' more women than the other three main parties combined, but with the ex- ception of Mrs. Maclnnis, all 28 are running in ridings where the party has never shown sig- nificant success. Twenty-two of Ihe female candidates are not affilialed wilh a registered parly and such conlcnders have never had much elecloral success. Women first voted In 1921 and in the subsequent 51 years only 18 made it to the Commons. The first was schooXeacher Agnes Mcphail, a of the Progressive Parly, a social- ist ancestor of the NDP. Despite the traditional ten- dency of socialist parties to put more women on the campaign platform, only four have been elected to sit with the Progres- sives, CCF or NDP. The Liberals and Con- servatives can each claim seven female MPs in the last half-century. The situation may be chang- Ann Landers ing: 'This year's female candi- dates total more than twice the 34 nominated in the last federal election, giving women 6.5 per cent of the total number of can- didates. In all elections since 1921, women have averaged only per cent of the nomi- nations. GOODIES DO GOOD Advonctng coupon campaign is lavprne Carter, of the LethbricJge Collegiate Institute.

Rick Ervin, photo DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a woman in my 50's so this letter is not the complaint of a sensitive young girl. I have a niece who is 30 years of age and she just loves to latch on to me at family parties, especially when others are within hearing distance, and tell me how her mother (my younger sister) always used me as the example of the "bad girl" in the family during her growing-up years. Her favorite quote is, "Mom would always say to us, 'You don't want to grow up to be like your Aunt Betty, do I have been deeply hurt by these references to the past and cannot for the life of me figure out why her mother would do this to me. I was not the perfect girl, but then I was no tramp and I see no justification for such vilification. I would never permit a child of mine to treat any of my sisters in this manner. Another family party is coming and I dread It. Can you think of a tactful way to head off my niece's inevilabte comments? Deeply Hurt DEAR D. H.: There is no tactful way to head off a bubble- head with a mouth that runs on a trolley. Your best approach is to stop her dead in her tracks. The minute she starts lo spin Ihe broken record, let her have it. Tell her you are bored with that piece of history and if she can't think of anything else to say to you, silence would be a welcome improvement. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 16 years old and tired of people telling me that my generation is the worst ever. Why don't they understand that every generation of parents and grandparents were horrified by "the younger generation" and believed they were going 'straight to the dogs! Will you please do teen-agers everywhere a favor and print the fol- lowing paragraph? "Children of today love They have bad manners, contempt for authority, and they show disrespect for their elders. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter in company, gobble up the dainties on the table, cross their legs and tyrannize their teachers." Those lines sound as if they were written by someone who has forgotten his youth. Actually they are a paraplirase. ot what was written by Socrates, somewhere between J63 and 399 B.C. So you see. Ann, we are not so different alter all. 1972 Model DEAR CAT: I've s-aid it before and I'll say it again. A generation that is against war, interested in social justice, deplores hypocrisy and racism and is determined to save the emironmenl can't be all bad. I see a great deal to admire. in this present generation of young people.

Mathis of Waco, Tex. With a little help from the Jesus Movement on one hand and some willingness to change on the other, Mrs. Mathis says there has been real change in the last two or lliree years.
