Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta iHE LbiHBRIDGfc iiietday, September 17, 1974 Lady Browne recalls jaunts through the wilds of Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) When Lady Moyra Browne rode with the RCMP 40 years ago. most of Ottawa was untamed forest. The daughter of the late Earl of Bessborough, Canada's Governor- General from 1931 to 1935, is back for a visit and she finds the sprawl- ing city almost unrecognizable as the place where she spent five years of her childhood. In the days when mounties accom- panied 13-year-old Lady Moyra on horseback jaunts through the wilds of Ottawa "it all ended at McKay miles East of Parliament Hill. The Ottawa region now covers square miles. Lady Moyra, in Canada for a three-week visit to attend two St. John Ambulance conventions, recalled the old days in an interview on the weekend. Between official visits with Cana- dian St. John Ambulance officials, she hoped to take in part of the Canada-Russia hockey series. Lady Moyra joined the St. John Ambulance Brigade in 1938, served as a nurse in the Second World War and earned her RN degree at West- minster Hospital. She now is superintendent of the brigade at St. John's Gate in London. NEED VOLUNTEERS Lady Moyra said St. John Am- bulance, like almost all volunteer social service agencies, has trouble recruiting young persons although liberation threatens masculinity service in the volunteer corps isn't without its exciting moments. She told the story of two young nursing cadets who were in a Belfast milk bar when a bomb exploded in the pub next door. "The girls dropped their glasses of milk and went over and announced themselves to the army that was moving in. They were given first aid kits and the army said 'Alright, get on with it.' "Those two suppose they were about 14 or some ex- tremely competent first aid work under conditions which were dangerous, to put it mildly." The nursing cadets, credited with saving several lives, were presented with medals by Princess Anne. THE BETTER HALF LADY MOYRA BROWNE OTTAWA (CP) Many un- derdeveloped countries share a troublesome obstacle in es- tablishing equality for their societies are basically tribal and the men, as the providers, see women's liberation as a threat to their masculinity. That has become evident at a United Nations seminar on women's rights, which ends here next week.

Justus Saboe. the Kenyan delegate and only other man at the seminar, said the. problem also is rife in his country. Both, however, said they are picking up valuable ideas from other delegates on how to establish national machinery that will make equality for women a reality rather than a dream. They see education as being a main tool in this fight. 'Many of the eight million Send for our beautiful new vacation kit. or so women in my country cannot Mr. Zolezzi said.

He said this probably is be- cause of the traditionally maledorninated culture, par- ticularly -nong the Peruvian Indians, a the Spanish section o. me population tends to be maledominated. Mr. Saboe drew a parallel with his country, saying that women in V'enya generally have not "tance to take advantage j; formal education. "As a result, you'll find that nearly 90 per cent of our rural women are illiterate.

"Our main problem is igno- rance and then, of course, there is a general apathy among the women.

By Barney ROyal rOWS just jokes LONDON (AP) Fierce rows in restaurants between Princess Margaret and her husband are really just a royal joke, says a new biography. It says that comedian Peter Sellers sometimes is invited to play a straight-faced role in the loud mock arguments between the princess and Lord Snowdon, both 44. But it all ends in "impish biographer Helen Cathcart reports. Miss Cathcart's book, Prin- cess Margaret, was published today. She also is the author of biographies of the Queen and Princess Anne. The new book criticizes gos- sips who have described Mar- garet's marriage as one of "nagging unhappiness." It admits that the princess has a quick temper inherited from her father, King George VI: says it would be Strange if she and her husband did not have tiffs or minor upsets, but pictures their marriage as happy and suc- cessful. Miss Cathcart gives two reasons for their frequent pe- riods over- seas assignments as a maga- zine photographer and Marga- ret's wish to seek the Carib- bean sunshine during the worst of the British winter. The book says that "on the fun side, the couple have been known to stage fearsome out- bursts, fists clenched, ex- pletives flying, in a quick- ening crossfire of improvised Noel Coward wit. until they collapsed in impish laughter." Miss Cathcart reports an oc- casion when Snowdon prom- ised three friends to bring "a very pretty girl" to lunch. They were agog over the sign of he turned up with his 10-year-old daughter. Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones. "acknowledge the problems specific to the women of "Alberta" and that in future, the government be prepared to work constructively with women to "correct longstanding injustices in this province." Introduction of legislation to give women time off to bear children while maintaining their job security would be "a sign of good faith" on the government's part. Conference delegates said in the telegram that "it has become apparent that the attorney-general's office is not conversant with contem- porary problems with the realities of the women and the law." Maria Erickson, conference chairman who introduced the motion, said she did not feel that Mr. Leitch was taking the women's concerns seriously. Mr. Leitch spoke to the conference, sponsored by the Women for Political Action and the continuing education divisions of the University of Calgary and the Calgary Board of Education, last Friday. He acknowledged that "pre- sent laws are out of date, out of touch with times and don't reflect current thinking and current lifestyles" but said it is more important for people to change their attitudes.

Hamper V. -17 Ave. S. Ann Landers Dear Readers: I am back from China but my head is still in Peking. I awakened this morning, made myself a cup of tea and started to do my own laundry. But now I must address myself to the enormous moun- tain of mail that has ac- cumulated in my absence. And the first business at hand is to let you know the results of the poll: Question "Who make the most passes doc- tors, lawyers or It all started when I printed a letter from woman who said she had read several letters in my column over the past years from women who claim- ed their doctors tried to get in- timate. The writer declared, "1 never had trouble with a doctor, but the lawyer who handled my divorce case propositioned me and I was so eager to get out of a lousy marriage, I agreed to 'co- operate' right in his office, on .the leather couch." She signed herself "Dumb Dora." I told Dora: "Poor judg- ment and weak character don't belong exclusively to any single profession there are bound to be a few rotten apples in every etc. I was promptly inundated with blasts and bouquets for both lawyers and doctors, but I was astonished by the number of women who wrote to say they never had any trouble with either and that the one to keep an eye on was the clergyman. When I printed that letter, several readers suggested I take a poll. So I asked for one- word postcards in response to the question: "Have you ever had a pass from a doctor, a lawyer or a clergyman? If so, which The results were staggering. It was a dead heat between the doctors and the clergyman, with the doctors edging out the clergymen by a small margin. I was surprised to learn that dentists beat out lawyers by approximately 50 votes. (Many specified DIVORCE Here are some responses I found interesting: From Atlanta: "Bosses are the worst. No doctor, lawyer, or clergymen ever got out of line with me but I had to quit three jobs because of lecherous bosses." From New Orleans: "College professors lead the pack. I'm ashamed to say I gave in to two of them. It was that or flunk." From Chicago: "You are i female chauvinist sow. I am a male who has been propositioned by four girls who work in this office anc I'm not even the big enchilada. I'm only the office manager.
