the P0«to«ice at Aldon., low. under Act of CongreM ol March 3. 1879 I (Sosnv | (80511) Nov. 1. . ! ESTABLISHED 1865 VOL. 102 NO. 7 TODAY, MRS. LURLINE WALLACE was inaugurated as the Governor of Alabama. This is the first time in history a woman has held that office in that state and only the third time a woman has been a governor in the whole nation. Not that Alabama is a real member of the United States. Along with Mississippi, and all of Georgia with the exception of Atlanta, Alabama in my opinion has never really belonged to the Union. - o THE ONLY OTHER PAID JOB the honey-blonde Mrs. Wallace has held heretofore was a clerk in a dime store. But her husband, George C. was prevented from seeking a term to succeed himself when the legislature refused to change laws. So George did the next best thing. He ran his wife for the post and she won handily. SSlgona JAN. 26,1967 SECOND SECTION NOW, THE THEORY BACK OF ALL this is that what Lurline doesn't know about the governor's job, George will tell her. Meanwhile, supporters of the male Governor Wallace think he has great presidential possibilities and probably George is of the same mind. I should live so long to see a thing like that, bat lots of Alabamans take it perfectly seriously. And it sets me to wondering what would happen if Lurline would decide not to be a mere figure-head and start to take her political prowess perfectly seriously. - o GEORGE WALLACE HAS LONG been an ardent advocate of state's rights - that is the privileges and perogatives of the white southern citizen. George seems to suit most of the citizens with voting rights in Alabama and he's doing the governing no matter who holds the title. His wife might le. him keep on doing just that. With a little encouragement, I wonder if she might take over George's presidential aspirations and take a fling at being the president, and the first woman one, herself I - o IF MRS. WALLACE BECAME PRESIDENT, she probably wouldn't want to do much for the colored citizens, but she'd have a perfect opportunity to gain full recognition, and full integration of another down-trodden segment of our population - women I If Lurline will promise to do that she can not only have my vote, I'll go out and ring doorbells for her campaign. - o THE FIRST THING MRS. WALLACE could do as president would be to do away with the tradition of menial work for women. If you look around you, almost all the maids, waitresses, cleaning women and housewives are women. Of course, there are a few lady doctors, lawyers, teachers and executives, but even they are just lady doctors, lawyers and executives in the day time. When they come home at night about 85% of them still have to wash dishes, scrub floors and cook supper. - o THE IDEAL PLAN, AND I HOPE Lurline will go for it, is to have every' grubby' task in 'the land done by men. If there is any question about which of a nurried couple should go out and earn the living I strongly suggest that it be the wife while the husband stays home and does the housework. Equal pay for equal work would be all right but I think the biggest salaries should go to the fair sex. - o ' THERE'S ROOM FOR A GREATDEALofintegrationin education. Women are pretty much accepted nowadays in the same high schools the men go to; it is at the college level the improvement Is needed. In many families, if all the children can't go on to school, it is the boys who get the preference because the girls will probably "just get married" anyway. When things get the way they should be it will be the daughters that are educated. Excepting in those cases where the family can afford to send the sons to college to find themselves wives. - o ONE OF THE ISSUES IN THE color integration problem has been separate rest rooms for white and colored. I don't know as I'd go so far as to suggest integrated powder rooms in the fight for women's rights, but I do think it might be a good thing to integrate restaurants. As it is now coveys of females lunch together and stage sit-in strikes. Tnen they each ask for separate checks and spend a great deal of time debating over the bill. Stag groups match coins to see who gets stuck with the check. With full integration, everybody will sign a credit card when they enter the cafe and hen parties won't be at all conspicuous. - o REALLY, TRULY, AND ABSOLUTELY ultimate integration of women would probably get us to the point where the bearing, feeding and rearing of offspring would be evenly dividsd between men and women. I doubt if either Lurline or Grace would care to go that far. On second thought, it might be just as well if Mrs. Wallace would stay home in Alabama and be Lady Governor, even If it is in name only. If somebody in the family wants to run for president- let George do it I - o - I WAS DELIGHTED THIS WEEK when Virginia Buchanan sent me a Congregational Couples Club calendar.
