Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, SepUmbur 22, 1972 Woman composer will score movie HOLLYWOOD (AP) Tho movie industry, running to catch up with women's lib, has hired its first woman composer to score a movie and conduct the orchestra. "In the past, producers may have been afraid that a score by a woman would he too says Anita Kerr, the lady chosen for the job. "I don't consider my music flow- ery at all." Miss Kerr, whose home is in Switzerland, spent a month at Universal Studios preparing the musical score for Limbo, a film about wives of Ameri- can prisoners o! war. "It's certainly a challenge." says tte peiite blonde. "I've never heard of any other woman who has actually scored a movie and con- ducted." SHE IS NO ROOKIE But the woman making the breakthrough is neither a newcomer to the music scene nor a battler for women's rights. Her skyrocket success as a singer-arranger-comp- poser brought Miss Kerr inde- pendence long before lib was fashionable. The Anita Kerr Singers have had dozens of hit record albums and Miss Kerr's col- laboration w i t h poet Rod McKuen on talk-and-music al- bums won her a gold record for one million sales of The Sea. They followed that album with The Earth and The Sky. She plans more collaborations with McKuen. "I think that if you're quali- fied to (io a job and can do it well, naturally you should have a chance to do says Miss Kerrr. But she said she never felt deterred by being a woman. "I just started working on sessions and got along with the men very she re- calls of her early days ar- ranging music at recording sessions. A native of Memphis, Tenn., she broke into music during the 1950s recording boom in Nashville and became known as "the lady who sang and had the singers." She feels that few people noticed then that she was also composing, arranging and conducting. ACte- the smash success of The Sea, they noticed. "My music came out when rock was at its she says of her compositions which she labels "quiet music." "It's not rock, but it's not Cole Porter she says of the distinctive soft sound. "I just try to write things that are pleasing to the car and not too complicated for the listener." Conducting the 40-p i e c e movie orchestra .for Limbo won't be her most demanding assignment. She notes that last year she was a guest con- ductor of the Royal Philhar- monic in London. "It was a thrill. Of course I didn't conduct any Stravinsky compositions. I conducted Anita Kerr compositions." Miss Kerr and her Ssviss- born husband, who is also her manager, moved to Swit- zerland two years ago with their two daughters to escape the pressured life they were living in American cities. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By KAREN CRAN'E Wlnstca Churchill High School We're back at school and at Churchill we have the usual number of new students lots! But it's always nice to see a new face, so welcome to the uew ChurchUlites! Of course all the freshmen are new, too. They were in a scale of confusion which is common among fresh- men the first week of school. I remember as a freshman how easy it was to get turned around and lose all sense of direction in Churchill. Frosh Day was held Friday, Sept. 1. There seemed to be a rather small amount of dress- ing-up this year as compared to other years, but then, we didn't want to make them feel unwelcome. You see the pur- pose Frosh Day Is to make the freshmen feel welcome. However, 1 have seen more ex- citing Fresh Days. WCHS Graduation Committee li off to a fresh start this year with a virtually all-new conmittee headed by K a t h y Doe. They have some refreshingly different ideas this year, so look out for any exciting new events that may come up dur- ing the year from Grad Com- mittee. The Churchill Bulldogs start- ed this season with a 10-6 vic- tory over McCoy High Colts of Medicine Hat. Our spirits were dampened slightly, though, by an injury to one of our favorites, Greg Hamilton. The second game of the sea- son wasn't so glorious. We lost 21-H to Catholic Central, but I don't think this is indicative of be scores to come. We're anticipating a good sea- son this year so be expecting to hear from the CHurchill Bull- dogs. Right Coach? Churchill's new cheerleaders are doing a fine job of sup- porting the team and I must say, so are the fans! I was pery proud of the turnout to the last game. Keep up the good spirit, Ok? I wish I could say the same about the turnout to our first dance There were plenty of people there alright. But where were the Churchiil people? Come on Churchill, let's have a better turnout for the next dance, t Students council seems to be running smoothly. For those of you who don't know WCHS incorporated a new system for student govern- ment last year. This is it's sec- ond year in operation. It's purpose is to get as many people as possible in- volved in students council, the itlea being that students tend to support the school better when they are involved in school affairs. It would appear to be quite successful. The total number at students in council is thirty, not including committe mem- bers. The school newspaper is a good example ol a student in- volvement project. There about fifteen stu- dents on the staff. The paper has a new name this year. It's called Whether You Like It or Not. It provides a place for stu- dents to voice their opinions about the school and problems they may see in certain areas, a place to find out when, where, and most importantly, what is going on in the school. There is a classified ad sec- tion where students may adver- tise things they may wish to buy, sell, or trade. The paper will ba coming out 'sports section where students can follow the latest news of Uie Bulldogs' games. The paper will be oming out soon so we can see what's up. I'd say that about wraps up what's happening around Churchill this month, but there is more to come in October!

Groenen, pholo Jersey takes over for fall LEISTER'S COMING EVENTS MIMURA HARP ENSEMBLE YATES MEMORIAL CENTRE Thursday, October 5th TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. PARAMOUNT THEATRE PHONE 328-4080 NEW YORK (CP) Fab- rics play an important role in this fall's tasliions with matte jersey the favorite. It's sin- uous, clingy feminine qualities typify fall of 1972 and it has both daytime and evening life. For daytime, matte jersey appeared in a knee-length burgundy dress with a wide self-inset belt by John An- thony, one of the clean-cut classic styles that won him a recent Coty Fashion Award. He also showed a number of matte jersey skirts, a favorite with him, to be worn with suits. For evening, matte jersey was equally effective in tha Malcolm Starr collection. One handsome topaz style included both a plunge neckline and the new deep dolman sleeves. Another evening concept by Nat Kaplan was the marriage of matte jersey skirts, both knee and floor lengths, with metallic brocade bodices. Matte jersey, of course, means jersey with a dull fin- ish. Traditionally jersey is a flat knitted wool fabric, usually made on circular ma- chines with fine needles. It is pliable and elastic. It can be knitted in a variety of weights and patterns. With the advent of man-made fabres, there's now also synthetic jersey. Jersey gets its name from the Channel island Its fisher- men wore knitted pullovers and caps. Jersey stepped into high' society some 90 years ago when actress Lillie Lang- try wore the first jersey dress to the races at Longchamps in Paris. She was born on Jersey and decided to use jersey. But being Lillie Langtry she had the famous couturier, Worth of Paris, make the gown. Its description sounds much like fall, 1972: "A deep blue pleated skirt united, to a tight-fititag bodice with a red sash." Lillie and the dress were a sensation. Lillie, of course, set many styles. She was the darling of the era. Kings and princes squabbled to be her escort. She owned a wliite yacht larger than that of the King of England, ran a racing stable and owned a fantastic collec- catennai local All girls of the Southminsler Junior Girls' Choir are asked to meet at tie church on Satur- day from 6 p.m. to begin practice for the operetta, The Pink Siamese.

OTTAWA (CP) The women comprising 30 per cent of the federal govern- ment's work force make it the country's largest employer of women. One snag: About 85 out of 100 o! these women are concentrated in what are po- itely referred to as the 'lower low-paying jobs in the clerical and operational categories of government. The scarcity of women in senior public service 'positions resurfaces periodically, most recently when one New Demo- cratic Party MP accused tho government of "tokenism in recruiting women for senior public service jobs." David Oriikow, member for Winnipeg North, used statis- tics from April, 1971, to sup- port his argument, Figures from last December, avail- able In the Public Service Commission's anntial report, indicate that the situation Is definitely improving, but slowly. Between April and Decem- ber, 1971, the number of women public servants earn- ing or more a year crept from less than two per cent of the available jobs to three per cent. The initial report of the royal commission on the status of women, recommend- ing a fairer deal (or women, was published in December, 1970. Two months later, the government's hiring agency, the Public Service Commis- sion, set up its equal employ- ment opportunities oftite. The bureau is responsible for de- veloping programs to promote equal hiring, promotion and training opportunities for women in the public service. Its work is ogically at a direc- tive issued In mid-April this year by the cabinet to all dep- uty heads of departments, or- dering them "to take steps to encourage the assignment and advancement of more women, into middle-and upper-echelon positions." Carol Lutes, co-ordlnatoT ol the bureau, estimates it will take at least five years for the program to alter the structure of the public service signifl cantly. 'We've barely made any in- she said, adding that he bureau is trying to pre-' vent tokenism in another sense. "The women we promote must be meritorious. We can't just twrd large numbers of women into higher positions ror the sake of looking good on paper." Miss Lutes said she wel- comes the criticism of "the short-term impatients" as "they provide excellent pro- vocation to keep the heat on government departments." "But we have to focus on the long-term results."

After Europe, it spread to eastern bloc countries.

It is currently working on programs to get women into middle-manage- ment positions.

Carrots preserved in bleach Now is the time of year to think about storing carrots. A simple, as-yet unproved meth- od used by a local district agri- culturist, and presently being tested at the University of Sas- katchewan, involves household bleach and water. Carrots should be cleaned of all mud and then topped about one quarter inch into the yel- low. Dip the carrots into a solu- tion of one ounce of bleach In one gallon of water for about SO seconds. Air-dry for one hall hour to get rid of the bleach odor. Store them in a polyethylene bag at 32 degrees. The carroto will sto'.-e for up to one year.
