Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September 27, 1971 THE LETIHBRIDGE HERALD Women leaders of family says speaker at native meet By MAUREEN JAMIESON Staff Writer "Women are the true leaders of the family; of the said Eric Russell, guest of the Voice of Alberta Native Wo- men's Society at their general meeting in the Lethbridge Friendship Centre S a t u rday morning. Mrs. Annie Cotton was chairman. Mrs. Rose Yellow Feet, presi- dent, stressed the need for tighter central control of finan- cial arrangements and mention- ed the need for fund raising. Neither (he provincial secretary nor the provincial treasurer was in attendance, and Mrs. Yellow Feet also read the treas- urer': report. Mr. Russell, a community de- velopment worker for the dcpt. of fndian affairs, was asked to present Ms own and Olaf A. Turnbull's evaluations of t h e three-day h u m L n relations workshop which wound up Fri- day. He said it was exciting to him to see what the native womeh had been doing. "That was beautiful. I have never seen anything like this. It says something about Indian women it'r the women in the home who bring up Ihe future genera- tion of this country." The course co-ordinator, Mr. Russell said, had sent the wo- men a challenge to be resolute, to pinpoint their direction and to set definite goals, and finally had recommended the society's board of directors attend a workshop to learn how to direct their organization. In reply, Mrs. Yellow Feet said the workshop was intended as a sensitivity course, for the women (o got to know them- selves and their neighbors. The board had had no intention of controlling or directing either the women or the worlcshop. Several motions were pre- sented and carried, including HOSE YELLOW FEET President, Voice of Alberta Native Women's Society two requesting grants from the Dept. of the Secretary of State in Ottawa.

When Mag- gie and I were going together she used to thorw her en- gagement ring in my face every two weeks. I used to think it was kind of cute the way her eyes blazed and her chin would go up and she'd stamp her tiny foot. I thought she'd outgrow her temper tantrums after we were married, but I was wrong. Maggie is still throwing things bottles, fry- ing pans, hockey sticks, anything handy. If we didn't have a house full of kids, I'd take off, but now it's out of the question. I hope the young guys out there who have hot-tempered girlsWill see this and head for the hills. Worker Who Wears His Hard Hat In The House. DEAR HARD HAT: Thanks for the testimony. For those who came in late, I'll repeat: Don't expect marriage to sweeten the disposition or improve a bad temper. Most changes after marriage are for the worse. DEAR ANN LANDERS: In most of our classes we are seated in alphabetical order. The girl who sits ahead of me several hours a day does not bathe often enough. I am trying to put this delicately but the simple fact is that she has a very offensive odor and it makes me sick. If I wrote to her an anonymous note she might guess I was the one and I wouldn't be able to look her in the face. Please advise. Faceless Friend DEAR FRIEND: Ask the Physical Education instructor to talk to the girl. She can do it in a tactful way and you will not be involved.

Morris Schumiatcher of Rc- Eina, a chit rights expert, said the church is becoming a junior partner to government in wel- fare programs. He was giving the closing ad- dress to a five-day conference of the Catholic Women's League of Canada. Churches must beware of fall- ing into the same errors as to- day's give-away society which is "alienating the old and es- tranging the he said. Despite huge welfare pro- grams from both church and slate, signs of social sickness are growing, lie said. Venereal disease is on the increase, for example, indicating a rise in promiscuity and a swing from moral values. Violence also v.'as prevalent I Mr. Schumialcher blamed the increase partly on "overcon- cem" which made life too easy for many young people. They row "lack the need to be needed." He compared alienated young people wilh Indians who had nn dergone similar demoralizatior. and personal devaluation from (he white society's overprotcc- lion in earlier times. Indians were placed on re- "first special day care not allowed to think or plan their own lives. In time they became inept at! caring for themselves. Mr. Schumiatcher's address concluded two final business: sessions during which the league planned action for the coming year. Main concerns were an anti-abortion cam- paign, equality for women in the church and a program against poverty.
