Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: You are perhaps one of the most powerful forces for education in the country. Please help millions of people by giving them some straight facts about their two best feet. There are no laws to make the shoe industry establish un- iform sizes. The present siz- ing system was established by King Henry VIII. Three barleycorns equaled one inch. The largest foot in the kingdom was believed to be 39 barleycorns long (13 inches) hence, size 13. A trained shoe salesman knows that width is just as important as length. Please don't argue with the shoe salesman if he tells you the shoe you chose is not right for you. Too many customers get their heart set on a certain style and they want it even though it's a poor fit and will cause them trouble. When fitting shoes for children the biggest problem is parents. They are too permissive No child should be allowed to have shoes unless the salesman says they fit cor- rectly. A reputable store is always happy to take back faulty shoes, but they are not pleased when customers damage shoes so they will have an excuse to return them. Most shoe salesmen work on commission. If you find a good one, stick with him. He'll appreciate it and you'll have happy feet. D.E.P., Grand River, Ohio Dear Mrs. D.E.P.: Funny how nobody attaches any special significance to his feet until they hurt. Thanks for educating us on the least appreciated part of the human anatomy Critic's book wins medal TORONTO (CP) A book on Canadian painters publish- ed last fall to mixed reviews has been awarded the Leipzig Medal, an East Germany- sponsored award for excep- tional literary works, a spokesman for the book's publisher said here.

IB-UN, Tutsdcy, Octobtr 23, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Indian woman's birthright denied THUNDER BAY (CP) "No one has the right to ar- bitrarily decide that f am not an Jeannette La veil, president of the Ontario Native Womens' Association said here. Mrs. La veil, who lost her case before the Supreme Court of Canada after she had protested the denial of her rights as a treaty Indian for marrying a non-Indian, told a meeting of the northern womens' group: "Nationality is a guaranteed right but with the supreme court ruling we lost the right and we have to get our people to realize it." Her fight, she said, was no longer a personal one but now involves all Canadian women. "All women should recognize the loss of rights. women have to make their feelings heard in legislature bodies The supreme court had rul- ed against Mrs. La veil in a 5-4 decision but she said she hopes to make voters "aware of the importance of the decision." Mrs. Lavell said her case had failed partly because of a mistaken attitude on the part of Indians themselves. She said many Indians on reserves feared that the Indian Act would be invalidated if her case had been upheld. "We are trying to make the Indian Act stronger to look at it from the point of view of women." The northern womens' group had met to discuss plans for a national day of mourning Monday on the death of the Canadian Bill of Rights as it applies to native the denial of their birthright as status Indians when marrying non-status In- dians or white men A resolution endorsing the national day of mourning locally was passed The group will also ask the federal government to amend the British North American act to incorporate the Cana- dian Bill of Rights TOUCHE?
