Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 23 8 I Japan's original suffragette YOUR BEST PLACE TO SHOP n I s is back in parliament I 1 TOKYO years young, her wrinkled face beaming with life, Japan's original suffragette is back in the Diet (parliament) at the insistence of supporters a quarter of her age. Fusae Ichikawa won an overwhelming victory in the July 7 elections for the upper house. Running as an independent, she collected the second-highest number of votes of the 54 candidates elected in countrywide voting. She was recently given the 1974 Ramon Magsaysay Award for com- munity leadership in recognition of her lifetime efforts to advance the public and personal freedom of women in Japan. Miss Ichikawa sat in the upper house of the Diet from 1953 until defeated in 1971. She said she had no intention of running again this year but was persuaded to do so by a group of young men and women to whom she had offered help and ad- vice in the past. She said she had been dis- .enchanted with the younger generation, but now is optimistic. "They are not all irresponsible, free-for-all or radical youths. At least, those who helped me in my campaign are seriously concerned about politics and the state of the political parties today." She said the young people who approached her to run again for the upper house had expressed concern about her age. "But when I helped them to pound rice by taking up the pestle on Adult Day last January, they were con- vinced that my age was no barrier. It was no effort for me. After all, I come from a poor farming family." During the campaign, she was bitterly critical of the huge sums of money spent by candidates of the ruling Liberal-Democratic Party "As I called for a reversal in the relative strengths of the LDP and the opposition forces, and denounced moneytalks campaigns by the LDP in "-ifh big business, more young in their to work for Thousands around the country sent in small cash donations. Miss Ichikawa said at a recent press luncheon that as a child she was upset over the way her father treated her mother at home. Then a brother went to the United States and worked his way through college. "He sent a postcard in which he said women actually taught in un- iversities in the United States. That was a revelation to me." Miss Ichikawa entered a normal school to study teaching. She said she received a marriage proposal while a student but rejected it so she could further her career. She was not to receive many more. "When I went to Tokyo and the papers 'started to write terrible things about me as a suffragette, no young man would come near me." After teaching in Japan she went to the United States where, at the age of 28, she attended the third grade in a school in Seattle to learn English. "My little classmates treated me as one of them. A boy picked me up every morning and we went to school together." Miss Ichikawa spent years in the United States studying women's social problems, returning to Japan in 1924. She has kept up her contacts with American women's move- ments. "In my last visit to the United States three or four years ago, I learned there were two types of women's liberation movements there: radical, anti-establishment movements by young women and movements within the es- tablishment by middle-aged intellec- tuals. "I would like to see the latter movements developed in Japan. "Japanese women were given equal rights with men by the occupa- tion forces after the Second World War. But after Japan achieved inde- pendence (in the ad- ministration followed policies which left women in subordinate positions. "More women have begun to take their problems to the courts, which generally give verdicts favorable to them. But there is little organization to back up these women, and there are still many who just let matters drop."

That ques- tion might sound funny to most people, but it's no joke to me. I dress DOWN, not up. Although I have a good figure I stay away from sweaters and knits and garments that cling and are provocative. I don't overdo the makeup and my hair isjts natural color. Yet, I can't even go to the gas station without the attendant making a pass. The butcher flirts with me, the milkman has made im- proper advances. Several of my husband's business associates have let me know they are "interested." I can't count the number of husbands of good friends of mine who have asked me to have an af- fair. Can you advise me on this problem? Unwilling Target Dear Tar: You DO have-a problem, but it's not the way you look, lady. It's the way you THINK you look. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Women who insist that they are the innocent victims of frequent passes are sending out little messages that they are available. It might be that the messages are subcon- scious, but they are being transmitted, nevertheless, and that's why you are getting so many propositions. Dear Ann Landers: What would say about a wife whose husband smokes like a chimney and she says, "He's a big boy and he can smoke if he wants to. The decision is up to him, as long as his insurance is paid up.'' I can understand her statement about his being a big boy, etc.. but that reference to his in- surance makes me sick. How do you feel about it? Lois In New Rochelle Dear Lois: Sorry, I'm with her. In fact, she may be following my advice.

I have on occasion suggested as a useful alter- native that they ask the dear man, from time to time, if his insurance is paid up. It's a far more effective approach than nagging. Moreover, women who live with gluttons, boozers, and nicotine addicts need an outlet, too. Dear Ann Landers: My .dumb wife kept her savings in an old sock under the bed. The dog got hold of her "bank ac- count" yesterday and chewed up some of it. There are several ten and twenty dollar bills that have large chunks out of them. Do we have to take a complete loss? What should we do with the damag- ed money? Mr. Dumbbell Dear Mr.: Take the damag- ed money to a bank. You will receive full reimbursement for any bill if you have more than half of it. And while you're there, have Mrs. Dumbbell open a savings ac- count. Money in a sock under the bed draws no interest. What's the story on pot, L.S.D., cocaine, uppers and downers, speed? Can you handle it if you're careful? Send for Ann Landers' new booklet, "Straight Dope on Drags."
