Comb alt training goes unisex Girls shatter military tradition By SUSAN MURRAY Kitchener Waterloo Record CFB BORDEN, Ont. CCP) Weighted down by a 19- pound rifle and heavy gear, Ruth Johnston moved swiftly, cautiously through the bush, watching for signs of enemy troops. No, she was not in Israel. The female private was one of five girls making Canadian military history by being among the first female army cadets to take combat train- ing. They were the first female traineers from Waterloo County to be accepted.into the six-week militia training pro- grams. Capt. Charles Hill of the London militia district said other Canadian Forces Bases have also shaken tradi- tion by allowing girls to take combat training, but the five from Kitchener were the only ones at Bqrden this year. They fired sub-machine- guns, dug trenches, smeared their faces with charcoal and green paint, and lived on field rations. sardines and pow- dered said Paula Koch, showing her box of packaged rations. OPPOSE DAS SrGNMENT The girls had to argue for their chance to take part in the overnight combat and In- fantry training session at Bor- den to finish their six weeks. They had taken the first two weeks of basic training at the Kitchener armory with the boys. Then they were as- signed to clerical duties, the normal work of Canadian army women, while the boys went on to special infantry training. The girls fought the trans- fer. "It will be too said Heather Martin. "Dull, dull, was Bev Stumpf's reaction. "I hate secretarial Debbie McBride said.

BUY NOW WHILE STOCKS LAST So Capt. Hill agreed to let them go to Borden. They had already gone on two overnight bivouacs, had dug trenches, learned tactics, practised map reading and the use of radao sets. But this was their first experience with live ammuni- tion, shooting at moving tar- gets. They wore regulation uni- forms except lor the shoes. There were no hoots small enough for them, so they wore loafers and running shoes, and as a consequence were not allowed to go on a five- mile route inarch. They were also excluded from firing rocket launchers because they weigh 28 pounds or more. BETTER THAN BOYS But the girls took tear gas training and generally acquit- ted themselves well enough to get praise from the instruc- tors, from the Highland Fusi- liers of Canada. "You know, their scores are belter on the average than the said Sgt. Richard Goe- bel, reading rifle practice re- sults. MWO Cain said there have been problems recruiting boys recently. "The army may be forced to open up more occupations to women." DEAR ANN LANDKRS: That letter from the angry wifc whose husband wanted to go to the office party without her (no wives or husbands allowed) made me so furious I got headache. About tea years ago most of the big companies got smart and put an end to the traditional office Christmas party. They finally realized it was a waste of money and nothing good came of it. Too many people got drunk and did things' that made them ashamed to show their faces Monday morn- ing. What was intended to be a good-will gesture laid tbt groundwork for a lot of after-hours monkey shines. The wise corporation heads know that business and pleas- ure don't mix. Almost without exception, when the executives get chummy with the secretaries, stenographers and file clerks, the end result is trouble. Office parties are not business and anyone who thinks otherwise is stupid. I know what I am talking about, Ann. I lost a husband after 23 years at an office party In Flatbush. Witness DEAR LIVING: Thanks for the autobiography. There's Bn old Spanish saying "A wise man never dances on the same table his food is on." DEAR ANN LANDERS: My father Is married to my. mother-in-law. To make it simpler my husband's mother married my dad. They live in another state. My mother-in-law has shut me out of their lives completely. She writes to my husband at work and phones him there. I don't know why she resents me. There seems to be nothing I can do about it. My father Is not much of a letter writer and he hates to talk on the phone, so I rarely hear from him. This hurts me deeply. My husband says people over 60 should be able to. do as they please. I belive children have the right to expect parental attention all their lives the same as parents have the right to expect their cliildren to love them forever. Am I expecting too much? Out DEAR OUT: The quality of attention a person receives by asking for it or worse' yet, by insisting it is his due is less than satisfactory. Your father has a wife and you have a husband. Concen- trate on your marriage and leave your father alone. DEAR ANN LANDERS: That letter from the young girl whose uncle got funny with her made me hopping mad. Such uncles are few and far between, like one in a million. Your column cast ugly aspersions on the wonderful uncles every- where. You owe them all an apology. Maine Reader DEAR READER: You are right when you say funny uncles are few and far between. But they do exist. I received over a hundred letters from grown women who wrote to ex- press thanks. They said that particular column brought back some nightmarish memories but they were glad I printed it. In almost every instance their parents never had a clue about the funny uncle and they were afraid to tell. One reader put it this way, "I hope that column opens somo eyes, Ann. Your column is a post-graduate course in human relations and kinky relatives."

WHAT'S IN STORE? by Lois McLean Davis In September, Inc Albcrla countryside a barber chair combines clfp the summer's growth. No matter how efficiency, economically, Ike combine gleam trio ker- nels it delivers no nostalgia for me. Turning progress back, recalling the- threshing machine is tipping a hopper full of memories: the ma china milling some pre-historic monster a belt length from the tractor, the teams of horses, ears twitching, as their drivers pitch bundles Inlo the maw, the smell of coffee and Mclnlosh applcr fed to trio hungry crew. The season of the threshing machine surely the 'cookmgest' timo of the year. As honest as the huge appetile was the crew's rich folksy humor brought to iho dinner table.
