Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 WE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Soplomber 23, 1970 4- am In My non By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer Right in the heart of Lethbridge is the most looked- at site in town. Can you guess? Well, it's the post office tower clock, of course. It could be called Lethbridge's Big Ben but ac- tually it's often considered the city's joke. You never know if it will be just 10 minutes late, 10 minutes early or stopped completely. I'm sure it must keep Charles Conner of the de- partment of public works running in circles. Seems like every time out-of-town visitors are strolling in the downtown area they all meet under the post office clock because it is the easiest spot to find. Just look up. But remember and warn them. It's nearly always wrong. Lethbridge's shopping facilities are undergoing drastic changes, as they are in every other North American city. Many stores are being located far away from the familiar clock face in the city centre. There will soon be five major shopping centres and many smaller ones scattered throughout the resi- dential areas. Bargain hunting used to be a simple matter of heading downtown and strolling through all the stores one after another. After visiting them all, a selection was made and you zipped back to that shop and head- ed for home sweet home, as happy as a kid with an all-day sucker. But times have changed. It's not that easy any longer, not here or in any other city. Because I live on the outskirts, my shopping route has to be carefully planned so as not to miss any stores or use more than one full tank of gas. First I hop, skip and jump down 13th St. N. and then whiz downtown. Next, my little car putts me along Mayor Magrath Drive, stopping only long enough to quickly browse. When I reach the most southerly point I have to make the terrible decision which to buy. I carefully crawl through the traffic as I retrace my steps, only to discover when I get all the way back to the chosen store that the bargain is gone. Of course it is p.m. and everything will be closed in a snap. It's just not as simple as it used to be. It's down- right frustrating. But I just remember that friendly face over the postal tower. As silly as its hands may be, in my opinion, it is always there to greet you and give a weary shopper a lift in spirits. Just Arrived For Fall!

By CAROL PASCOE MONTREAL (CP) Char- lotte VanDine, newly elected president of the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, is beginning to wonder whether "we blow our own horns enough." "The Women's Liberation Movement is grabbing all the she said ruefully. "We don't wave banners and we should." It would be difficult to ini- YVE RUN IT Although construction on the addition to the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute is not completed, student activity carries on under the direction of the student's council which includes: left to right top, Marni Virtue, secretary; Les Omotani, external public relations; Charles Evans, treasurer; Tom Higa, president; left to right bottom; Dave Stephure, second vice-president; Chris Christou, first vice-president; Bev Davids, pep club director; Sandi Steed, social convenor; Carol Ericksony clerical aid and miss- ing are: Lori Andreachuk and David Blakely, sports directors and Bob Baird, club di- rector. agine two more varying groups. The Women's Lib has vocal pockets of extremism and a seemingly helter-skelter organization. The professional federation received its charter in 1930, is affiliated with groups in 43 other countries and conducts its meetings in a businesslike and democratic manner. However, there are similari- ties. "We both want equality of said Miss Van- Dine. Both want abortion re- moved from the Criminal Code, although the federation has not adopted any ethical or moral stand on it. Nor does the federation want the type of attention cus- tomarily awarded Women's Lib activities. What it would like "is more members (cur- rently in Canada) and perhaps more recognition of the gains it has won for work- ing women. MUST RESPECT SYSTEM Miss VanDine definitely does not approve of women chaining themselves to House of Commons seats as a Van- couver group did. "Suffragettes in Lond.on long ago chained themselves to lamp posts to get the vote, which is fine, but I think we have to respect our system of government, whether or not we like the parties or what they do." Each year the federation presents a brief to the govern- ment following discussions at national meetings. A typical brief would contain requests for changes in proposed legis- lation or in the white paper on taxation, or appointment of more qualified women to the Senate, government boards and commissions. "This she said, "we presented our brief to Mr. Trudeau and he had 10 cabi- net ministers with him. Some of the departments they rep- resented were not even men- tioned in our brief, but they showed up to hear what we had to say. "We were well received. There was none of the attitude of 'Well, girls, say what you have to say and get it over with.' WENT AFTER WORK Miss VanDine, assistant secretary at Canadian' Inter- national Paper Co., joined the federation in 1953 after getting a diploma in business at Sim- mons .College hi Boston. A native of Fredericton, she said she joined because "I wanted to get involved in something, the people were friendly and we had lots in common, and the meetings were lield at night and on weekends so I could go after work." Relaxing in her wood-pa- nelled office, decorated with photos of Africa which she took during a vacation and an autographed picture of hockey player Jean Beliveau, Miss VanDine said she; could talk "all day" about the federa- tion. Any woman who spends 60 per cent of her time or re- ceives at least 60 per cent of her income from working is eligible to join. This does not include "the women who clip coupons for their income." Membership covers a wide .range of occupations, from doctors to lawyers to secre- taries and plant workers. One past president was an aero- nautical engineer. Two improvements "for working women across Can- ada" which the federation feels responsible for and proud of "are enactment of equal pay laws and establish- JTZ. op.

SEEK MORE BENEFITS For the future "we want day care Miss VanDine said. "Woqien with pre-school children should not have to sit at their jobs worrying about their chil- dren." Another is maternity leave, a benefit included in the 1919 convention of the Interna- tional Labor Organization. "We see no reason why a working woman should be de- nied the right to have a child. She should have no worry about losing her job or her senioriiy. "Men say 'But what about the They think every married woman is going to have children. We don't want women to be paid during their maternity leave; we simply want them to be able to re- turn to their jobs without suf- fering any loss of status." What plans and dreams has Charlotte VanDine for her next two years as president? "It's hard to say. Of course, there are little int ernal changes I would like to see, but mostly I want the organi- zation to move ahead. I want women to train themselves for leadership, not only in their jobs, but in the community and government. "We feel we have an organi- zation to which every working woman needs to belong."
