Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta IS THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September S, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Edilor of the most irritating things for a working woman to hear is "but what do you do with your I'm often tempted to reply that I suggest they play hide and seek in my old icebox until I feel like having them around again. Another beaut is "I can't work because my hus- band likes things 'done'." My husband likes things done, too, but sometimes lie has to do them. If your husband and family aren't willing to let you do your thing, you can't hack it not without their support I don't assume that because a woman isn't work- ing that she has nothing to do with her time. You can be just as busy, and more so, in the home than when you work a nine to five day, unless you try to do both. Perhaps the most bothersome assumption.working women get, is that you're really a failure in the home so you have to get away. Why do we expect woman to take to cooking and sewing? Many women don't like to bake and prepare meals, and they shouldn't be scorned for admitting it. Many men like to cook and probably barbecuing svas a welcome relief to those gourmets who now have a chance to experiment in their own environ- ment, and by themselves. After all, men did find a way out of the wood- chopping and coal-carrying era, didn't they? To put the icing on the cake, there's the woman who thinks I'm missing such opportunities to teach my daughters cooking and sewing. They're wrong. My daughters learn to cook the way I did, by my- self, and they're happier than if I were there showing them how to do it My mother was an excellent cook, and she would have been very happy to show me how. There wasn't any need for me to learn when she was there all the time. When I wanted to, I learned on my own, and enjoyed it much, much more. Learning on your own is fine and fun, but a trained instructress is better. We're just finding that out about car driving. Just because you know how, doesn't mean you know enough to show someone else, or have the patience. When my daughters or my son learn to sew or bake for their boyfriends, girlfriends, or even me, I'll be there if they think they need advice. If they can't get. the zipper in straight or the gravy smooth, I'll help them, but I won't peer over their shoulders while they're learning and I sure won't feel guilty about not being a full-time instructor. Working and running a house, isn't everyone's bag. I sympathize with women who must work at a job they don't want for economic reasons, a s I would with a woman who wants to carry on a career she isn't allowed to. But let's not assume heresay about working and non-working women to be a coiu fact. Hun your own nest and let the rest of the birds do the same. She's Fighting City Hall TORONTO (CP) For nine months Helen Wursta has been driving her local aldermen to distraction. Who's Helen Wursta? She's an Etobicoke housewife who says she grew up in a slum and now that she has escaped, the To- ronto borough Etobicoke council wants to build a gar- bage incinerator near her nice suburban home. So far she has spent in her fight against the incinera- tor, and she is not giving up. Her neighbors recently took up a collection to help her cam- F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT 6th N.

Mrs. Wursta says that unless "little people" stop the building through the courts the incinera- tor will turn her neighborhood into a slum. Despite nine months of pleas, tears and stratagems by Mrs. Wursta and her family, the-Eto- bicoke council voted in August to build the incinerator, which the council considers essential. Until last October, Mrs. Wur- sta was a quiet housewife with inetrests centred on home-mak- ing and her husband and two children. Now her time is so taken up with petitions, tours of other in- cinerator plants and searches tor alternative sites for the Eto- b i c o k e incinerator that she doesn't always get supper on time and her laundry done. "I only went to Grade B in school, but if I spent three years on a university campus I could never have learned as much about political science and citizens' rights as I have in the last 11 Mrs. VVur- sta said.

Women To Force Senate's Hand WASHINGTON (AP) In tlie 1930s a widowed, wealthy Perle Mesta campaigned for women's concluded it was San Quenlin's 'First Lady' Retires At 62 SAN QUENT1N, Calif. (AP) After a 24-year "stretch" the nurse they called "the first lady of San Quentin prison" has retired.. Lucille R. Schoen, now 62, was the first woman permit- ted to work inside the walls of the 118-year-old prison. "I just hope I can make it on the outside." she told a cheering group of convicts at the recent retirement party ley gave her. Mrs. S'choen said in all the years she served as chief nurse to the prisoners she walked unafraid with one ex- ception: "There was only one man I was ever afraid of, because of his psychotic personality. He was in there for a perfectly horrible sex crime-and he fell madly in love with me." She observed, "After all, as a woman working in a segre- gated society of men I didn't have much competi- tion." Associate Warden James W. Park said: "She had the re- spect of the men" and proba- bly represented a substitute mother to most of the prison- ers. Mrs. Schoen said what really made her boil over, through the years, were vis- itors to the 120-bed prison hos- pitals who insisted on knowing what crimes various prisoners lad committed. "People expected them to nave horns and a she snapped. Adoption Procedures Facilitated "amily's Immigration Assisted In New Agency OTTAWA (CP) Phyllis arrison of Ottawa will still ave plenty of time to work on er book, although she has re- ently been appointed the Ca- adian executive secretary of iternational Social Service. The organization, with its ead office in Geneva, operates Canada as a unit of the Ca- adian Welfare Council and iss Harrison says she is appy that her new job is a art-time one at present. The International Social Ser- ce arranges services for peo- e with problems caused by from one country to nother, working through exist- welfare agencies. The whole range, of individual and family problems of a so- al or legal nature is handled, eluding inter country adop- on. 'IPs a liaison service, Miss Harrison says. "We don't ml tiate action, but we help with the procedure at both ends, "In adoptions, for example, a Canadian Chinese couple might want to adopt a Chinese child So we would get in touch with the appropriate agency in Hong Kong. That isn't too common any more, as the agencies in Hong Kong are not having dif- ficulty finding adoptive homes for children there. The society's North Ameri- can office is in New York City, and Harrison says ar- rangements to transport chil- dren from one country to an- other, and provision of an es- cort for small children are made there. "Canada hasn't been much in- volved in bringing in children from other countries, but since the Korean war there have been many children moved THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes 'You'd better add some wheels, 10 we can push it along the bottom of the lake." from Korea to the Unitec States. Of course, many o these have American fathers. "It's the responsibility of t parent to pay for transporta tion, and what usually happens is that a group of five or sb, children will be brought in a one tune, accompanied by an escort, and the parents spli1 the cost of the escort's fee." Miss Harrison is quick tc point out that there are com plications in finding homes for children.in other countries. Ad optive procedures may not be the same, and legal require- ments may also differ. FEARS ALLAYED "Some people don't like the idea of children going to other countries because they don' know what type of home they will be going to. But if the agencies involved at both ends have comparable adoptive pro- cedures and attitudes, these fears should be allayed." Inter country adoptions are only a small portion of the prob- lems handled by the society, tawever. It is also Involved hi prob- lems of maintenance where a man has emigrated to Can- ada, leaving in his country of origin a wife and family whom ;he courts have ordered him to support.

"We can only en- courage him to pay voluntar- ily." The international society also becomes involved when a di- vorced parent uses his or her visiting rights to take the child to another country. "The parent with legal guar- dianship can start proceedings against the other one where he or she is living. The ISS might be asked to contact an agency in the country which the child has been taken to, to find out what the situation is." The Ottawa office handles 20 to 30 new cases each month, with 300 active at any one time. In addition In her hew du- ties, Miss Harrison is still work- ing on a book, Children Can- ada Forgot, which deals with the experiences of children who were brought over to Canada during a 70 year period by a variety of British child emi- gration societies. "At least children were brought here from Great Britain to work on farms dur- ing the 70-year period, the last arriving as recently as 1939. "They were destitute children They were, in fact, inden- tured servants, ranging in age from 10 to 15 years, and they were indentured until they were 18." harder to unite the women than the rights.
