'l X .ill 'ft f Miffs Match mates -ramil y Student volunteers train to form teams TWO ON A MATCH a blazer and pants combination in navy and white jersey for him and her is shown in Paris as part of couturier Pierre Balmain's ready to wear 1972 summer collection. Few girls seek career in law By MAUREEN JAMIESON I Staff Writer Drug taking among L e t li- bridge students is diminishing, according to Bob Gall, direc- tor of special services for the Lethbridge public schools and a member of the school board's drug committee. He says al- though the problem is a fact of life, he feels it is now mini- mal in this area. Local student volunteers are being involved with the com- mittee, and will be trained in drag information and resources. They will form a team of young "contact" people in the schools. Team members are not ex- pected to provide counselling, but will listen and direct stu- dents involved with drugs to the agencies which can pro-; vide the help they want. It is honed that youngsters who are j perhaps afraid to approach' adults with their drug prob- lems will feel freer to seek help from their peers. Mr. Gall stressed the impor- tance of providing young peo- aturdrurualinformation When a student is given false information about marijuana or any other soft drag, he said, such as "your hair will fall out if you use he knows from personal experience or from time, it is moving towards an the experiences of others this is a fallacy, and will then generally disregard scare in- formation about hard drugs, no matter how factual. Regardless of parents' per- sonal feelings about drugs, all children should know that traf- ficking and possession are of- fences against the law and pun- ishable by up to two years' imprisonment. This not only gives the offender a criminal record, it limits the type of employment available to him in later life. The drug committee is there to help in any way the stu- dents want, says Mr. Gall, and members are "interested in kids and what happens to them." It aims at reducing the immediate problem while guar- anteeing the legal and moral rights of children. At the same essentially preventive Drugs, on the whole, are not the major problem in Leth- bridge that they are in some other areas, he said. They are expensive, and there is no re- liable and regular source of hard drags like heroin within the city, he added, n order to ensure regular supplies, there- fore, some addicts must move to more heavily populated areas. The problem parents should be worrying about now, says Mr. Gall, is not drags, but the big increase in solvent inhala- tion locally. While nail polish and airplane glue and the like may not be addictive, they can and do cause brain damage. It is in the nature of kids to ex- periment he said and these sol- vents are cheap and readily available to everyone. Some men wary of women lawyers lWomm prevent RED DEER, Alta. (CP1 There is only one female law- yer in this "city of but she doesn't complain of male chauvinism, prejudices to- ward women or male domina- tion of society. Olga Dobrowney, 28, be- lieves in the reasonable and rational approach to prob- lems. She says this is some- thing that W omen 's Lib doesn't always use. These attributes suit a law- yer who has just taken a posi- tion as junior solicitor with a Red Deer law firm. Miss Dobrowney says she doesn't feel that being a woman lawyer made it much more difficult for her to find a job. "There are some men who are a little dubious about hir- ing women in a legal capac- she says, seated behind a huge desk that dwarfs her. "But I think you'd find that in almost any profession, al- though it's true even now there are not that many girls who seek careers as law- yers." Sire admits that women are not favored by firms seeking crack courtroom lawyer s. Men, however, have admitted there are some legal situa- tions better handled by a woman, she says, especially problems dealing with family relationships. The women seem to be cap- able of more tact and empa- thy in such matters. Dobrowney insists that a woman must take a greater interest in her own rights, know what business transac- tions her husband makes, and be able to handle matters if the husband should die. "There are a few women who become widows and have no idea what business deals the husband was involved in, who his lawyer A wife need not be insistent or aggressive about it. but she should not just let herself be taken care of like a child. She should want to know what's going on in the family." Miss Dobrowney's firm ideas are reflected in her background. She says she has always been single-minded about her goals in life; she's wanted to be a lawyer ever since "racle 4. When .iu are raised in a small town in Saskatchewan the ac- cepted careers for most girls are nursing, teaching or being a housewife, that ambition makes you something of a cu- riosity. She set her sights on the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon and graduated with her arts and law degrees in 1SC9 after taking time off for a job as a social worker for the Alberta government. She continued as a social worker for more than a year after graduation, then articled situations where she can with an Edmonton law firm and was admitted to the bar in August of this year. "Friday, Aug. she adds with a laugh. Miss Dobrowney says the question of women's liberation versus male domination doesn't trouble her much. "Many of the points they bring up are good she says about Women's Lib. "But they have got to the point where a lot of people don't take them seriously. Burning bras isn't going to do a thing about changing the laws or tile attitudes of society. "I believe that if a woman is concerned and has any abil- ity at all, she'll put herself in change whatever she feels is wrong xvith society." own progression SAINT JOHN (CP) No one is preventing women from mov- ing ahead but themselves, the president of the National Coun- cil of Women said here. Mrs. John Hnatshyn of Saska- toon, currently touring Eastern Canada, said women must be- come "more influential leaders in public opinion." She said she found it amazing that some women could be so fervent in the women's libera- tion movement while the great majority remained silent amid erosion of moral standards and growing permissiveness in soci- ety.
