THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, September 18, 1973 17 Old lady tougher than B.C. winter ANAHIM LAKE, B C In the meadows and forests of the Chilcotin an old says she will die only when the last coyote dies eating and sleeping in the open Her name is Chee people know her as Lily Skinner or Lily Jack and rumor has it she's refused to live under a roof since a man beat her years ago. "I'm 20 years in this country and she's been out all the time that I've known says Bob Scott of Riske Creek, B.C. She is a merry-eyed old lady with a face like a burnished chunk of mahogany. She has weathered with the country in west-central British Colum- bia, not aged with it. She is ageless. Her garments are a ragbag of cast-offs and her moccasins are in tatters with campfire streaks of black. Yet she prevails even when winter should have claimed her many years ago. Once there was a horse, a dog and a few head of cattle, as Chee Whit travelled in self- imposed solitude over thousands of square miles of meadow and Redstone Reserve where she was born and Tatla Lake. She uses a mixture of Eng- lish, Chilcotin and old Chinook trade lingo. When asked her age. she says, with a laugh "Forty two and 50 Her age is unknown, but she picks up her old-age pension cheque at a general store, where she now buys canned goods. She used to live on squirrel or rabbit she snared or moose or deer she brought down with a .22-calibre rifle. Asked if the winters are cold, she says. "Not cold, just a little cold." Does she ever get scared9 "Sometimes scared." Do bears bother her? "Yes. sometimes." BEATEN WITH CHAIN Mr. Scott tells the Chilcotm- country story that when Chee Whit was young a man whipp- ed her viciously with a chain. "From that day on she would not stay in a house." he says Acquaintances agree, how- ever, that occasionally, when winter is at its deadliest. Chee Whit can be persuaded to stay under a roof for one or two nights, but never longer. Says Mr Scott. "A couple of blankets, a bit of canvas and she'll wake up in the mor- ning with four to six inches of snow on top of her "She has a way of putting her woodblocks together in a fire, a little bit of a fire, and in the morning she'll cuddle that tire up and she's on her way again But that's the way life for Chee Whit has been lor many years and that's the way many in this rugged area hope it will continue for the old ladv WeeWhimsv Ann Landers Ladies get together Senate Speaker Muriel Ferguson, left, and Science Minister Jeanne Sauve, get together after royal assent was given to an increase in the old age pension. Madame Sauve is the first woman to act as prime minister during royal assent. Mrs. Ferguson is the first woman to become speaker of the Senate.

"There's a terrific need for a magazine like this." said the 26-year-old Mrs. Jensen in a recent telephone interview. "Now women athletes can't say 'nobody cares about us.' We do "We'll cover all sports not just tennis and golf from high school level to professional, profile top athletes and do investigative pieces pointing out injustices in various fields."

With the encouragement of her husband, a capital investment of and a part-time staff ot two, she started The Sportswoman.

The other evening some friends dropped in and I asked the boy to please go to his room so my friends and I could have a chat He got mad and blurted out some very dir- ty language. Do all children go through such a stage? Please advise. Grandma Dear Grandma: Not all just those who can get away with it. Let your grandson know you will not tolerate such talk and the sooner the better Tell him what he can expect the next time he uses foul language in your presence and make sure he gets it Dear Ann Landers: We
