Audrey Henry, Paradise Valley rancher Vaey Rancher Audrey Henry Takes Triple Win At Rodeo By ADELEINE FLAHERTY Herald Staff Writer When she was 12, Audrey Henry's future was still a little vague. But two years later she decided ranching was preferable to more education and "I've never regretted my choice," says the Paradise Valley rancher who was last year's all - around cowgirl champion. Miss Henry was in Calgary to participate in cow cutting, calf roping and goat tying events in the All - Girl International Rodeo held Tuesday in the Stampede Corral. Although injured earlier in the day, she went gamely on to take three different awards: goat tying, calf roping and tlic Canadian all-round championship, for which she tied with Babe Lauder of Stettler. She describes cow cutting as "showing how a horse can work cattle," and there is plenty of opportunity to practise for competitions because it's a daily chore on the ranch Miss Henry operates with her sister Marg. Miss Henry refers to her mother, sister and herself as "a working combination. Mother gives the orders- and we do the work," she says laughingly. Recently the two women sold some land and lessened their stock to five horses and 50 head of cattle so they'd have an opportunity to "take in more rodeos and try and improve for competitions." Miss Henry readily admits travelling the rodeo circuit would have been impossible without her sister's co-operation. With their previous 800 acre spread, "it was impossible for both of us to get away. I owe a great deal to my sister." At first, Miss Henry just showed horses on the Western circuit but eventually she was competing in rodeos across Canada, and in Wyoming and Montana. She has been a member of the Canadian Barrel Rac ing and Rodeo Association since its formation six years ago but she has only competed on the circuit during the past three years. It's been a lazy summer, says Miss Henry, modestly referring to the 2,500 miles she's travelled this summer in comparison to the 10,000 miles she covered on last year's rodeo circuit. Last year in competitions throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, she captured the top award of the year, and two other major titles plus five trophies. Preparing her horses for competition is a "do - it -yourself" feat. Miss Henry also shoes horses. Preparing herself for competition requires "hard work and lots of practice but I have no retirement plans." Having broken "only a few-bones," she considers herself "fortunate." "The city lights are fine for a few days but the outdoor life is my life." Wrwr !& ;i WmikI 11 J h j fl !n7;JJ fTT f lf'4jtllj'rt . h ' - r1 AROUND THE TOWN . . .

COME IN AND SEE OUR HUNDREDS OF UNADVERTISED SPECIALS! By CATHERINE FORD IHerald Staff Writer "Disgusting," said one woman. "Tremendous," replied a man. This summed up the reaction disclosed during a Herald survey, Tuesday, on the "thigh - high" skirt at least four to five inches above the knee. Sales were brisk when the "sky - high hemline" made its appearance in London shops Monday reports Associated Press. .Not so in Calgary. None of the larger department stores have received any call for the new hem length nor have they considered ordering any. 'They are popular in the East and I think they're terrific but I wouldn't want my girl friend to wear one," said Keith Storey, a recent arrival from Toronto. All of the men polled replied that the skirts were "terrific if the girls have shapely legs." but none of them wanted to see their wives wearing one. "They would be fine for teen - agers, for casual wear, and I think they will catch on, as a fad." said Ed Davis, 435 19th Ave. N.W. One downtown boutique shop has ordered the short skirts. "They look absolutely charming on a young, slim girl, out ridiculous if you are expecting your old-age pension," said the manager. "I wouldn't let my daughter out of the house in a skirt that short," said one woman. The high hemline created an immediate and real prob- New Quarters Set For Unwed Mothers ' "-riim iiri ' : : kiLix-- tj Store Hours: 9 o.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursdoy and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 129 - 8th Ave. S. W. Phone 263-2788 Personal Shoppirfg Oniy More than 20 unwed mothers at the Salvation Army's Grace Hospital will be relocated in new quarters Friday. The hospital is to receive a 56-bed additior,, and since no facilities are planned for unwed mothers, the women must move to the old Blunt Nursing Home in lower Mount Royal at 12th St. and Cameron Ave. S.W. The move will be temporary, with the option of renewal after a year. The Development Appeal Board recently moved to allow this type of home in areas previously restricted to senior citizen's homes. SIMILAR IN NATURE Capt. Stanley Armstrong of the Salvation Army persuaded the board that nursing homes for unwed mothers are similar in nature to the present type of homes in the area. This temporary accommodation will handle about 20 girls. Monday, a local Salvation Army officii- recommended to national headquarters that a new home be built for unwed mother.-;. Capt. Armstrong said no thought has been given to the site or cost of the building, and the army cannot make any definite plans until they get the reaction from headquarters. The proposed home would be financed through a public fund drive. MAY CAMPAIGN "We would have to have a capita! campaign next May to run in conjunction with the annual Red Shield campaign," he said. Construction of the wing on the Grace Hospital began last January. The $1,072,000 project will more than double the bed space with a 56-bed addition. The present space there for unwed mothers is taxed to capacity but Capt. Armstrong said if facilities were available, the present combination home-hospital would handle 30. The Grace Hospital will have 44 obstetrical and 56 maternity beds after the new wing is completed. Twelve beds in the old building will be lost due to renovations. lem for the wearers in the U.K. reports AP how to sit down without revealing most of the thigh, and a messy composite stocking welt, faintly bulging thigh and girdle. Canadian hosiery and lingerie manufacturers are prepared, said Renee Le Blanc, manager of the lingerie department of a downtown store. "Found a t i o n garments present no problem, because manufacturers have deigned leotard nylons, short slips, and a modern "teddy suit", she said. The short slip, called a chemisette, and the "teddy suit", a one - piece foundation garment with short, narrow legs, reaches just to the middle of the thighs, quite appropriate with a very skimpy skirt. One man displayed a "realistic attitude" by saying, "If a girl has to wear a girdle, she certainly shouldn't wear that skirt." Teen - agers had mixed reactions to the short style. "No sale," said one. "Well I'd wear one only if my girl friends did," said another. Paula Sharpe. 17, said she would accept them on other people, "but I certainly wouldn't wear one myself, under any conditions." One girl refused to comment. She was wearing a skirt four inches above her knees. Lawrie KERGAN r pj Herald Women's Editor well A be turning, with The fashion tide may emphasis now on men. It was reported that a couple of young men-about-town turned up at a patio party recently wearing the same T-shirts. They were identical in design and pattern although the colors were different. One went home and changed. At the same gathering, two women turned up decked out in matching cotton shifts. They laughed it off and ignored it. So anyone who thinks men aren't fashion conscious may have to reconsider. Advice To Speakers A little booklet that packs a lot of sense into its 15 pages is the one distributed to its members by the Calgary Jaycette Club providing advice on public speaking. Adapted from a Helpful Hints booklet compiled by the Victoria Jaycee-ettes, the local version states in the introduction: "Only you can say what your personal thoughts are on any subject, and it is your democratic responsibility to be able to express your opinion . . ." This is sound advice, especially for women who often are timorous about speaking out before a crowd. One of its recurring themes will undoubtedly be useful to those with the opposite problem speaking out too much and too long. "YOU'VE PROBABLY NOTICED QUITE a repetition throughout this booklet of two little words be brief which brings us to our all-purpose never-fail . . . formula for instant speech," the booklet concludes. The formula? "Stand up, speak up. shut up." Under the heading, Speeches for Special Occasions, the following guide is offered: 1. Be sincere (not gushy) 2. Be original. 3. Be brief, especially if: a) yours is 31st on the program; b) it's midnight already; c) the chairs are very hard; d) the audience has gone home. I think every after-dinner speaker should be forced to carry a copy of this advice with him or her and re-read it at regular intervals to refresh the memory. Here And There . . . Mr. and Mrs. Wolfgang Peters of Bremen, West Germany, are currently in Calgary visiting their sons and daughters-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Erie Peters, 1835 8th St. S.W., and Mr. and Mrs. Michael Peters, 1917 33rd St. S.W. . . .

They have five daughters, 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild. . . .Sons and daughters attending the golden wedding anniversary celebration of Mr. and Mrs. M. A.

Grenberg, Edmonton, was a recent visitor at the home of Mrs. Jean Greenberg, 1827 Westmount Road N.W. Local Woman Furthers Studies n Ceramics At Nelson School NELSON Mrs. Jack Robinson, of Calgary, decided long ago that the role of a housewife could not replace her artistic inclinations. She is studying primitive ceramics, with several other Alber-tans, at Notre Dame University simmer school here. "I like to do things with my hands." she explains, and the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, are now benefitting from her talents. Mrs. Robinson is a past president, and four vears ago, she started designing and decorating the teepees used by the trail riders. ARTS GRADUATES A graduate of the four-year fine arts course at the Alberta College of Arts, Calgary, she attributes her love of ceramics to her extensive background in all outdoor sports. In 1960 she elevated her position from student to instructor at the college, and the following winter was spent commuting between Calgary and Banff, where she taught ceramics and designs. The winter of 1962 she taught at the Allied Arts Centre, in addition to setting up their ceramics department. But she is a creator, she explains, and after her last teaching stint, she and her husband set up a pottery studio in their home. Now with her own equipment Mrs. Robinson is able to tax her imagination to the fullest fashioning ceramic works. sl savs.
