Brazilian fall fashions influenced by disappearance of designer's son -Wedneidoy, Scptembgr IS, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 'XTalue'VilLaae NEW YORK (AP) Bra- 7ilifln fashion designer ZUZLI Angel, who dresses such stars as Joan Crawford, Kim Novak and Margot Fontcyn, had de- cided lasl spring Lo present a collection based on birds, but- terflies and flowers. But when her son Stuart dis- appeared after allegedly being tortured by Brazilian air force police, she embroi- dered cages over the birds, depicted cannon balls shooting and sewed on mili- tary caps and scrawny-look- ing children with black doves. Miss Angel, wr.j showed the dresses at the home of the Brazilian consul in New York called it "the world's first political fashion collection." For the last three months Zuleika Angel real been trying to dis- cover what happened to her son Stuart, 2G. He was born of her marriage with Norman Angel Jones, a Canadian brought up in Plymouth, Mas s., and a naturalized American. A Brazilian congressman demanded a government in- vestigation after a Lop lawyer said Jor.es died in prison due to torture. SAY HE'S FREE Brazilian police and armed forces maintain that Jones, a Brazilian citizen accused of. subversive activities against trie government, was never arrested and is still presum- ably at large. Lawyer H e 1 e n i o Fragoso said last month in a letter to the Brazilian Human Rights Commission that members of the Brazilian air force ar- rested Jones in May, beat him in a Rio jail, tied him to a jeep and dragged him before taking his body off on a stretcher. "I decided lo put two and two together and transmit the message in my Miss Angel explained in an inter- view. Zuzu Angel made her first impact in the United Slates last year when a major New York department dorff her entire collection. Miss Angel has become Brazil's best-known designer in the last decade. She dressed Rio's beautiful people and was soon cutting clothes fnr the country's first lady, lolanda Costa e Silva. In 19C9, she was elected Brazil's woman or the year airf became a symbol of ils drive to export manufactured products. Hiss Angel admits her son had been involved in anti-gov- ernment underground activi- ties in Brazil since 19G9, when she last heard from: him. "But this cannot prevent me and our American rela- tives from striving lo find out if he is alive, or where his body is she said. "I shall continue to knock on aJI the doors, and to let the world my fashions, if necessary." POLITICAL FASHIONS Brazilian fashion designer Zuzu Angel, left, stands wilh model wearing dress from what she calls "the world's first political fashion collection." Miss Angel, whose son has been missing after allegedly being tortured by Brazilian air force police, rather 1han embroidering garments with fashion frivolities such as birds, butterflies and flowers has stitched on her dresses symbols of war and oppression: can- nons, planes, encaged birds, scrawny children and black doves. Abortion laws inequitable physicians told at Banff meet BANFF, Altn. (CP) Cana- dian abortion law remains in- equitable despite amendments made in 19S9, the college of family physicians was told here. Dr. John Lederman of Van- couver, a lawyer as well as a physician, said that although the amended law is more lib- eral, it contains two major de- fects which prevent all women from being treated fairly. One part of the amendment requires that a committee must be established Jn an accredited hospital to approve abortion, he said. Tliree doctors must be mpmbers of the committee, but ama Margaret and Donald Frank M i 1 1 w a r d of Lethbridgc arc lo announce their mar- riage which took place on Sep- tember 3. The wedding was held in Southminster United Church wilh Rev. R. W. K. Elliott of- ficiating. _'V calendar o- f f I local liapppniiwi Itcd Cross workers will hppin fall sowing Friday at 2 p.m. in the Rod Cross rooms lllli SI. and 7th Avc. the remaining members an unspecified number can be anybody, "including plumbers.'1 "There is no mandatory re- quirement that there even be a Dr. Lederman said. "In fact, few hospitals in Canada have "Statistics show that only 143 of accredited hospitals in the 10 provinces and territories have committees.1' He also told a news confer- ence that at least one of those committees was set up only to say "no." The second defect is that the law permits abortion to be done if, in the opinion of the commit- tee, continuation of the preg- nancy would endanger the life or health of the woman. "The trouble is with the word health." If the committee interprets this in a narrow view there are few conditions in which the medical profession can't pro- tect the physical he said. If it takes a broad view- that the social well being of the family and woman could be affected then almost any re- quest for abortion could be ap- proved. "So you can see the law, in practice, doesn't apply to all women equally." Dr. Lederman also said the number of requesls for abor- tions has put such a load on some hospitals lhat they have placed geographical or other i-c- slrictions on they will take. Tlus, plus the fact that not all hospitals have committees, makes it unfair for some wom- en, he said. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "It says 'you are a big tipper', I trust." Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANCERS: The whole world is in one mell- of-a-hess. The only solution is to face up to the fact promptly, without emotion, for the good of all. Here are tie rules which must be followed: 1. Everybody over 50 OUT. (Except the top 10 per cent of scientists, social workers, writers, musicians and doc- tors.) (You can stay because you're in tlw top 10 per cent.) 2. All criminals major and minor OUT. 3. All handicapped people OUT. They would be better off and so would the world. The basic rule should be "only those who are contributing to the welfare of the world should be allowed to bve." 4. No medical help for cliildren under six years of ago. In this way, only the strong would survive to perpetuate healthy offspring. 5. Bottom 10 per cent lazy, stupid, etc. OUT. 6. Sterilize everybody after two cliildren. (Nobody needs more. Some people don't need any.) 7. Abolish cars. We now know Hal most of the pollution comes from cars. Aside from the pollution menace, too many people have forgotlen how to walk. If these rules seem far out let me assure you that they are not. We are living in perilous times. Drastic measures are required or we are all finished. One Who Wanls The Greatest Good For The Largest Number DEAR ONE: Thank you for letting me know I can stay. And now, I'd like to ask one question. Who is going to de- fine, "slupid, lazy, handicapped, major and minor criminals, writers and As for you, have you considered a saliva lest? I recommend it. DEAR ANN LADDERS: I do not agree wilh you that "Nutty Al" is appropriately named. How do you figure it? He got his back from the dentist who couldn't get Ihe denlurcs to fit. And then he picked blindfolded, out of the telephone book, another dentist who made a perfect set of dentures. He didn't have lo go back for even one adjust- ment. I wish 1 was half as smart. Here is what happened to me: Last year I went to a very reputable dentist for a re- lire job. He convinced me that I needed a new set of den- tures. This man mined my old set and the new teeth he made (for 542.S) fit like a saddle on a sow. Wilh the help of a nail file and some sandpaper I am managing to wear my old uppers. The lowers he made are O.K. for n few hours at a time, but Ihore arc many things I can't eat. Please don't (ell me (o RO to another denlist and start over again. I know I must do Ihis but Hint bush in the back yard thai grows S-12S bills is nol producing much this sea- son. I hope you will print Ihis letlcr. Maybe my dcntisl will see it and send me a peace offering. Gumming It Up In Boulder DEAR GUMM: Don't stand on one fool waiting for Ibal "peace offering." And don'l wail for Uiat hush in (lie back yard, cither. Kind a dentist, who will make you another set of choppers on the clmv-now-pay-lnter plan. Dentistry is no do- it-yourself hobby. You need leclli that fit. And you need 'cm now. Move already. NABOB COFFEE POTATO CHIPS NIBLETS CORN SOUP SODAS f.no.
