Eaton's, Simpson's, slopped buying pelts Canadian furriers protect endangered species JOYCE CARTER Toronto Globe and IMnil TORONTO (CP) Candian furriers say Ihey are not mak- ing coals from the pells of any endangered animal spec- ies. At the same time, most of I hem agree with Holt, Ren- frew president Leonard Shav- ick, who says: "Any business- man with any kind of con- science believes in conserva- tion to a practical point, but we must resist mass hys- teria." Most furriers lake their in- formation about threatened animals from the Red Data Book, published by the Inter- national Union [or the Con- servation of Nalurc and Natu- ral Resources. It currently lists five endangered species: tiger, snow and clod leop- ards, La Plata and giant ot- ters. The Swiss Fur Industry As- sociation has stopped dealing in all of them. Canadian re- tailers say they see no need for such an agreement here, but Eaton's, Simpsons, Creed's and Holt Renfrew have stopped purchasing awii ivmct Self-expression emphasized at native women's meet Before you sign a contract iritli a social club of a dance studio, be sure you know the total cost.

Peter and St. Paul's Church By MAUREEN .IAMIESON Stall Writer Native women Jje learning to express themselves through the modi i o[ the workshop. A human relations workshop, sponsored by the southern Al- berta branch of the Voice of Alberta Native Women Society, got under way Wednesday morning with more than 30 people registered for the course. The majority of the wo- men were from southern Alber- ta, but there were a few visit- ors from Edmonton, as well as Mrs. Bertha Clark from Fort McMurray. Course co ordinator is Mr. Ola! A. (Ole) Tumbull, direc- tor of education at Western Co- operative College, Saskat o o n, who said he was there to work the women and not for them. Emphasis was placed on each person bringing out her own thoughts, ideas and reac- tions to given situations. Groups were, divided among six or seven tables centred around the co ordinalor. and in the smaller groups, the more diffident women said they fell freer to bring up the subjects which interested them. One group mentioned the three different types of native women in Alberta; treaty, non- traity and Metis. They thought it T'as time the legal differ- ences in these categories were resolved and that some laws be changed or relaxed to meet thp combined r.ecds of all native women. At first manv of the women said they were nervous or afraid because other people did not accept them. After discus- sion they came to the conclu- sion that they were not only teachers but could learn from others. Delegates also said thev discovered that other people had the same fears. A major point brought out in discussion was that people rp- act differently to similar emo- tions. Innermost feelings arp known to the person experien- cing them, but can only be seen by others, and are therefor? sometimes misjudged. The women reasoned that each person in a group or or- ganization should be made In feel worthy so that her personal feelings would be good, or posi- tive, and that smaller groups would be one possible way tn kt this goal in sight. Lack of interest in the na- tive women's organization on the reserves was a source of disappointment to the dele- gates, but the women decided it rfa; up to them to return to their homes and discuss the activities of the society m hope of exciting curiosity and interest among their friends. Cecile Spear Chief from the Blood Reserve in Standoff re- ceived enthusiastic murmurs of assent when she explained that she "thought I was coming to a workshop to make th'ngs, but now it is just like going back to schral and starting a new life." Mr. Tumbull concluded the session by making the point that in an organization, as well as in other areas of life, much depends on the feelings be- tween people. "If you don't feel good, you can't get the work he claims. Delegates toured the city in the afternoon and continued workshop discussions in the evening. Chairman of today's session was Mrs. Zella Harris, human j resource officer from Edmon- ton, and highlight of the pro- gram will be the entertainment by Chief Robert Smallboy from Hobbema at 0 o'clock this eve- ning. Poppy Day set Nov. 6 Permission to proclaim Nov. 5 through Nov. 11 as Remem- brance Week was granted to the poppy campaign chairman by city council Monday. Council also approved a re- quest to hold poppy day Nov. G and to fly the poppy flag at City Hall during Remembrance Week. NOT WTHOUT HELP COLOMBO, Ceylon (AP) A report written by a Ceylonese game warden says an elephant he watched giving birth bit her trunk in pain during labor and another elephant acting as mid- wife helped place the newborn animal on the ground. these pens voluntarily. Spokesmen say they believe there are only a few bundles of skins in the country, pur- chased before the danger was known, Eaton's took its stand at the beginning of this year and an- nounced it would no longer carry anything made of or trimmed with leopard, ocelot, cheetah, tiger or jaguar. SOME ARE PLENTIFUL John Williams, Toronto-area fashion merchandise man- ager, says the store went fur- ther than the Red Book be- cause "a couple of these ani- mals were on the borderline. We have sided with the con- servationists." He says the store did not make its move just for public- ity. "It's true the consumer twigged our conscience, but it's also true that our con- science responded." Mr. Shavick says: "If it's endangered, if it's proven, of course we wouldn't sell it. It's questionable if the normal Af- rican leopard is endangered. Mexican and Brazilian ocelots are not endangered, they're most plentiful." He estimates the cost of a fine leopard coat at upwards of Ocelot coats range from to with an BiNGO Scandinavian Hall 229 IJtli Si. "C" N.

At Simpsons, Gene Fecteau, Toronto-area fur buyer, says: "There was no decision taken that we would not handle the spotty furs, but we have not anyway. There are very few furs in this category, very few sales anyway." No furrier will agree with the wildlife protectors who say 't is wrong for any animal to be killed for clothing. Creed president E d m o n d Creed puts their case clearly. He says his stores use the Red Book as their guide. "All the other species on lists are on the lists of various other organizations. I question whether they have the com- plete scientific facts. "What they have done is scared the hell out of the pub- lic and created an environ- ment that makes it unpopular to buy certain furs." He says the cause has been taken up by "people con- cerned with wildlife and by groups of women who have nothing better to do. It hap- pens to be B good committee to work on, it's popular at moment." "Canada was weaned on the. fur industry. If pressures con- tinue unrestricted they could seriously hurt a multi-million dollar business in Canada. There must be thousands of people involved, from the trappers through all parts of the fur industry. "As far as wild furs are concerned, there's a legal sea- son on hunting and trapping. The government keeps a pretty good eye on that situa- tion. Most governments do." Mr. Williams says many of the best furs are especially grown on ranches. He says the St. Lawrence baby seal pelts are never used in the fur industry. "They're only used for knicknacks." Despite the flack, all four spokesmen say fur sales have not suffered. Mr. Creed says his sales are up over last year. What to do with the money you save buying Melchers Very Mild.
