Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE UTHBRIDCE HERALD Thunday, StpUmbir 24, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor MORE intriguing title you c o u 1 d n' t ask for. The Bitch in Season in the Urban Community. No it isn't the title of the latest paperback, it's a fact sheet for dog owners which has been compiled by a local veterinarian. Female dogs are not supposed to be kept in the city according to a local bylaw, when in heat. The fact that male dogs are not supposed to be left to run at large should perhaps be the determining factor in whether female clogs are a nuisance. Even keeping the male in check doesn't solve the problem, he's attracted by the odor of hormones given off in the urine during the entire 21-day period. Tablets may be given to the female to help p vent the attraction of the male, states the report, but the best way is to keep the female indoors, and leashed. This latter point is stressed since the female will, when ready to be mated, escape both the house and yard. The report concludes that the best method to control the bitch is to consider a hysterectomy. An- other veterinarian says that the operation should be done before the puppy is bred, not after, since this makes the operation more difficult. He also states that spa'jng the bitcli does not lead to over- weight. The report is quite detailed and female dog own- ers may be advised to contact the Animal Shelter in the riverbottom area for copies. Glen Anderson will be happy to have you call. A news note from New .York states that airline stewardesses are turning thumbs down on the midi, promising one more year of coffee, tea and discern- ahle knee meanwhile CP Air's executive flights this week began sporting the new look Midi length skirts are buttoned but way way down did you know that by the time the average adult reaches the age of 70, he or she will have eaten 150 head of cattle, 24jOOO chickens, 310 swine, 225 lambs, 26 sheep 26 acres of grain and 50 acres of fruit and vegetables? Sounds like you'd need a midi skirt to hide it all Local d.j. telling a little joke about the girl jockey who refused to ride in the race because the horse didn't match her outfit should take a look at what's new for men it's the midi look com- plete with midi dress and pants underneath can handbags really be that far behind? Judging by the number of kids who had remarks to make about a recent column on motorbikes, and assuming there were others who had comments to make but refrained from doing so, we might remind teens of the dance to be held this Friday at the Friend- ship Centre from 9 to midnight. In case you haven't been around to the Friend- ship Centre it's situated, at 102- 5th St. S. Music is by The Native Creed, a Cardston group. The YWCA is looking for any extra furnishings anyone might have for the residence recreation room. Right now the room is pretty bare and with the usually non-functioning bank balance the YW maintains, none can be bought. Cushions, a spare desk or pin-up lamp for the young students would be appreciated. Give the YW office a call at 327-22S4 and let them know what you can offer. Midi Length Slowly Creeping In By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor Lois of women are going around saying: "I'll nevei wear a midi; I'll never wear a long skirt." Probably they know all the time that they will, though, if the makers and marketers of clothes de- cree it. And they have. The spring shows had many midis, and a Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press of fall fash ions indicates that Canadian retailers have bought them and expect to sell them. In Toronto some store own- ers have told saleswomen they must wear midis al work. One large department store has midi-length uni- forms on its elevator opera- tors. While all around town miniskirts and dresses are on sale, the boutiques are show- ing midis, sign of occasional midi- length you see worn is on someone chic and attractive. In other areas, predictions are that the midi will have taken over completely by win- ter. Though there is some ac knowledgement of buyer re- sistance, only Regina reports minis selling as well as last year. A department store manager there says: "We've sold next to nothing in the new midi length." HEMLINES DROP Perhaps by way of easing people into accepting the longer lengths, some centres predict a gradual decline of the hemline. A Vancouver fashion expert says hems in coats and dresses are, on the average, two inches longer than they have been. In St. John's, Nfld., retail- ers expect a length two inches above the knee will be the big seller for the early months of the fall. Two inches below and mid-calf are expected to be leaders by winter. In Montreal, all newspaper ads and store mannequins are showing midis or lengths just below the knee now. An Edmonton boutique op- erator says: "Even customers who thought they wouldn't, wind up trying a midi on and buying. It makes a woman feel feminine." The maxi appeal's to have disappeared, except for the odd appearance as a rain or sports coat in vinyl or tweed. Sales of p a n t -s u i t s are booming. One Toronto fashion writer suggests they represent a way out for women not ready to buy a midi length. They are around in a vari- ety of styles from skin-fitting jump suits to kindlier, many ayered versions worn with midi-length sleeveless vests, ackets cropped at the waist and in-between-length tops.
