Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 tHE ICTHBBinGE HERAlD Tuesday, September 7, 1971 Victoria Chamber elects woman By MICIIAia VICTORIA (CP> When slip was installed rccenllv us the first woman president of the Victoria Chamlwr nf Com- merce, Helen Boirncs-Wallinu was presented wilh a Ravel dp co rated wilh a large scented powdc-r p'.iff. "The first (hing 1 did wns said -Miss lleirncs who. in accepting Ihu one- year as.sipnim-nl. be- came the first woman presi- dent of a Canadian chamber for a metropolitan area. I si'ageslcd that I hoped it would ahvais be my insignia but no u.'iy it going lo lie the chamber's in- signia for Ihis year." Such a distinction between her role as a woman and tier role in Ihe business commu- nity seems in Die mind of this auburn haired, at- tractive mother of fnur. "When you're in bi'si ness you do the Ihings that have to be done and you do them in a forthright manner. But when you're home and you're with your husband or your escort or whatever, a little hesitation at the door allows him to open it for you. "This makes him feel more like a man and you mnrc like. a woman.'' Raised on a fruit farm in the Okanagan area Columbia, Miss Beknts said she "was always inlere.slcd in what makes the business "world go round." After workinc (or a while as a model, she opened a charm school or "Eelf-devel- opmcnt school" as she pre- fers lo call it. Following her marriage lo Conrad and arrival gram on a Victoria television station. How does her husband feel about her involvement in so many out-of-hornc aclivities? "lie thinks it's great. He is a Firm believer (hat a woman should live her own life, lhal she should he herself "He feels nomen are more interesting if they are active in many things." LOTS TO TALK ABOUT She said she and her bus- hand, who has an investiga- tion r.Rency, runs an import- export business and is presi- dent of Ihe Oak Bay Rate- payers As.'-'ociaiicfi, have .1 lot more lo lalk about "because we lake an active interest in whal is going on oulside the four walls of our home." Miss Beirncs said that when her children who now arc, 21 to 25, were grouing up she planned hrr business involve- ment around (heir needs. But she is not one to be an overly dominant parent, "f don't think it is healthy for a mother to be around 24 hours a day. Children learn lo stand on their feet much bet- ter if they don't always have mother lo turn lo." The ladies of Ihe female lib- cratiou movement get little suonort from Miss Beinies. "The idea that women are being downtrodden is just a bunch of malarky as Tar as I'm concerned. Being a woman has nevei held me back from anything I've ever wauled to do yet. 'I think the yell i n g. Ihe shouting, the placard-carrying and all Ihe rest of this is strictly defeating because it makes women gcncrallv look like the very thing they are claiming they arc not." FAVORS BROAD ROLF.

Other than keeping up her spacious, modern home and her work wilh the chamber, Miss Bcirncs models for the odd charilv fashion s h o w. was well established in the business world before she was married, the basic function of the Chamber of Commerce ic "to work for the betterment of Ihe ccmmunilv ns a w h o 1 c. not just, the business commu- nity."

IF I'D KNOWN YOU WERE COMING But Mary Skellon, caught wilh the breakfast plates in hand, didn't know anyone was coming Saturday morning. Her unexpected guests just barged right in for a coffee parly reunion with their former teacher, class of 1954 at fCI.

"Although we expected lo dis- cover lhal a woman received fewer occupational rewards than a man wilh equal scores on the achievement predictors, we were hardly prepared for the size of the discrepancy be- tween observed and expected annual said Dr. Ter- esa Levitin of the Survey Re- search Centre of the University of Michigan. The report, released today, was prepared for the amma! meeting of the APA. Dr. Levitin said 351 women and 695 men were surveyed and before finding out what they were paid, the survey consi- dered several faclors, including education, tenure, supervisory responsibility and "occupational prestige." The survey showed more than half the v.oinen had annual in- come discrepancies r a n g i n g from through and "the significant differences were that the women who lost or more were the young- est. 16 to 29 years old, and the oldest, 55 years or more, of the respondents." Dr. Levitin added those un- derpaid or more were "while collar" workers; those employed in professional, tech- nical, managerial, clerical, and sales work; those who did not belong to a union and those in comparatively small establish- ments where less than 500 em- ployees worked."
