Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 31, 1970 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERA10 - 17 ivincf Survey Indicates All Is Well Women In Law Equal In Theory, If Not Fact DEAR ANN LANDERS: I hope "Mount Everest" (the guy who is 6*8" and feels like King Kong) takes your advice and stand tall. My 15-year-old kid sister is 6'1" and still growing. At age 12 she was the tallest person in the school. The poor girl was so miserable she was turning into a recluse. Last year a teacher talked some sense into her and now she's happy as a clam, looking forward to a career as a model. Nothing has changed but her attitude. -Glad For Her DEAR GLAD: And then I wrote-"It's not what happens to you but how you take it that counts." Thanks for giving me an opportunity to say it again. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell the millions of men who read your column that if they arc not physically able to have sexual relations with their wives to get some help and stop being so confounded proud and foolish. It is debasing for a woman to beg her husband for sex and get turned down. Take my word for it Ann, a wife's love can turn to hate when she is told to take a cold shower and forget it. Most women who have famlies don't want to take a lover on the side, but after months and sometimes years of frustration and rejection they feel justified. I've discussed this problem with my doctor. He tells me alcohol can be an important factor in impotency among men between 35 and 50. I'm sure my husband's inability to perform is related to his heavy drinking, but he won't admit he needs help - either for his drinking or his sex life. He insists that for people our age (I'm 33 and he is 36) once a month is enough. He says I'm the one who needs professional help. Everything I've ever read on this subject makes it plain that impotency in males (as well and frigidity in females) is 98 per cent emotional and has no organic basis. When I try to explain this to my husband he becomes furious. I am not asking for advice. I've already made up my mind I am not going to lead a sexless life. What I must decide now is whether to accept an offer from an attractive man who insists he's in love with me (his wife has been ill for years) or file for divorce and get some fulfilment. Please publish this letter for the benefit of the males in your reading audience who are not as rock-headed as my husband. For them it might not be -Too Late DEAR T. L.: Here's your letter, for the males In my reading audience who are not as rock-headed as your husband. Thanks for writing.

By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor rTHE concept of equality within the law for men and women would seem to extend to its members within the local profession as well. This conclusion might be drawn from a survey recently conducted by Cameron Harvey, of the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba. Mr. Harvey polled women members of the law profession, and graduates of law schools and law societies to determine the "prickly question" of the treatment of women lawyers within the legal profession. Mr. Harvey attempted to make no conclusions himself from the survey, and in fact met with opposition from the subjects of his survey who felt that any such article would have little social value. Although the majority of his questionnaires reflected an opinion of equality, those who did iiot, had a number of complaints in common with women employed in other professions and employment. Each group was adamant about their position with the majority suggesting that prejudice may exist only in the minds of those who sought it. Margaret Ellsworth, a Leth-bridge lawyer, in a telephone interview regarding the survey, said she had answered Mr. Harvey's questionnaire, but I wondered whether it was "really all that useful." She said she would have to agree that women are generally treated the same as other lawyers within the profession and that one would never meet with prejudice as long as you did your job. As a practising lawyer for six years, Mrs. Ellsworth said she has met with resistance "only once." The statistics on women in the legal profession show that there is a res urging interest in law after a decline in the intervening years. In 1931 for instance, according to Dominion Bureau of Statistics figures in Alberta, there were 45 male judges and three female. In 1961 there were nearly twice as many men at 87, but no women judges at all. In 1970 there are now four women magistrates, Mrs. Emily Murphy, Mrs. Alice Jamie-son, Mrs. Wallis Kempo and Mrs. Marjorie M. Bowker. Judge Bowker is known as the author of the Bowker Report, a supplementary document to the study of Adoption and Child Welfare in Alberta. Of interest is the fact that itt Quebec, the province where women have been so long regarded as inferior in the eyes of the law, there are three judges of the social welfare court, one in municipal court and the sole woman member of the superior court in Canada. Mrs. Rejane Laberge - Colas was sworn in as a judge of the Quebec Superior Court in March, 1969. One male member of the Lethbridge legal profession was asked if he felt that women suffered at the hands of their fellow lawyers. He replied that women seem to be as much discriminated against by their own sex as by men. He said that the ones who are successful are highly competitive. He said women are generally the most learned people in law when it comes to the statutes, but run into problems in the practical application of the law. When asked if he would recommend law to a girl, if she were interested, he replied that law for a woman, is lonely. One difficulty is that other women are unwilling to accept them. In reply to Mr. Harvey's questionnaire, the majority of women said they would definitely advise the law profession to girls. Legal training was given the credit for a better opportunity to work within the community and to raise a family even if the profession is not actively carried on. One new is that education is never a waste, even of women, although the survey did not appear to carry out the prevalent thought that women often do not finish their law studies once started. Women in law in Canada have come a ways since 1917 when a conviction in Alberta was questioned on the grounds that a woman was not legally competent and capable of being a police magistrate. It may also be true that women are unwilling to admit discrimination, as one contributor wrote Mr. Harvey. That perhaps it's easier to accept what is, than to change what may never be. F.O.E.

Soviet Wives Review Sewing By JOANNE SCHREIBER When it comes to sewing, there are no international barriers.

The women were wives of members of the Soviet mission assigned to the United Nations; a sewing company took care of the demonstration; the gathering was planned by the New York City Commission to the United Nations, which works with wives of diplomats to make them feel welcome here. Current pattern books were spread on large tables. Gay spring fabrics draped the walls in glowing color. Sewing baskets, tape measures, hem markers, needles, thread and other tools of the sewing trade covered display tables, and three demonstrators put new machines through their paces while fielding a barrage of queries from the Russian women. Many of the visitors spoke several languages, so no official translators were on hand. Few of the women were sewing beginners, and many of them had stitched the garments they were wearing. An exception was Mrs. Nicholai Tochine, who had a career of her own back home as a musician and chorus conductor with a television company in Moscow. "Here, I am just a housewife," she said. "So I must find something to fill my time." She is filling it by learning to sew and is planning to buy an American sewing machine. Some examples of Russian chic were seer in beautifully embroidered blouses and in glorious furs. Many wore fur hats, and cloth coats were lavishly trimmed with top-quality mink (norka in Russian). One attractive blond, Mrs. Vladimir Chuchukina, whose husband is press secretary of the Soviet mission, had been on an American shopping spree and looked terrific in a red vinyl coat trimmed with white woolly fur, a matching jumper, white fur hat and tall, white patent boots. Mrs. Chuchukina is one of those who sews quite a lot, especially for herself and her year-old daughter. "This is the only thing I have bought here," she confided. What do the Russian ladies think of skirt lengths? "The mini is not fof me," said one. She will continue to wear her skirts short-just a hint above the knee. Another woman approved of the mini for Russian women. "It is very practical in the proper season," she observed. "And it is good because it makes women think sum and take care of themselves." The maxi drew a negative response. What particular aspects of sewing drew the most questions? According to the demonstrators, the questions were about the same as might be asked by women anywhere. They asked about putting in monogramming, over casting fabrics and knits. The coffee tree Is subject to 375 diseases, including 10 serious ones, of which the worst is the coffee rust.
