Women Candidates In Agreement By M. J. PEAULE Associated Press Writer The five Arkansas women ceking state or national office lis fall agree on three issues -- support of the proposed al Rights Amendment to ic U.S. Constitution, dis- pproval o t . the "stereotyped -omen's liberation image" and ic need for a return to "gov- rnment of the people." Carolyn Pollen, 37, of Fort milh, who is seeking District . Position 3 in the Arkansas louse, explained in an inleriew: "Government has gotten way from the people, on the late level as well as in Washington. Legislators do their vork in CO days in Little Rock nd don't really know what is going on back home." Judy Potty, 30. of Little Rock, who is trying to unseat etcran Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, asserted, "I'm closer to the jeople's problems. Represcnta- ives seem to lose that close- less when in Washington." In addition to Mrs. Pollen jnd Mrs. Petty, the other women seeking office are Leona Troxell, 60, of Rose Bud, the Republican candidate for lieu- enant governor; Bernice Kizer, i9, of Fort Smith, a Democratic candidate for chancery judge; -ind Cathy Hale, .11, of Fayelte- 'ille. a Republican who is scek- ng the 10th District Position House seat. "I think women should run 'or office," Mrs. Troxell said 'I think they should be involved in every aspect of government, including seeking elective office." Several of candidates inter viewed said that Mrs. Kizer's political success had encour aged them to run. Mrs. Kizei 'e up a post she has held in .he Arkansas House for the past 14 years to run for Chan eery judge. Since she is unop josed in November, Mrs. Kizer ilready is assured of becoming .he first women chancery judge in Arkansas. "The voters knew her and knew she did a good job. She proved a woman can be a com jetent public official." said Mrs. Pollen, who is seeking To Marry In December A Dec. 21 wedding in Huuls- ville is being planned by Miss N a n c y Margaret Smith, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Aust i n C. Smith of Hmilsvillc, ant! Charles Clifton Marsh, son of Mr. and Mrs. Kile F. Marsh of Little Rock. The briile-elcct is a senior at (he University of Arkansas where she is a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sororlly and of Phi Delia Theta Lllfle Sisters. She is the granddaughter of Mrs. J. F. Smith and Mrs. Al- l)orl King of Hunlsvillc. T h c prospective bridegroom is also a senior at Ihe University where lie is a member of Plii Delta Theta and Cardinal XX. lie is the grandson of Mrs. Cliflon Marsh o[ PangTmrn am! Mrs. Charles Gahe of Scarcy. To Marry Mrs. Kizer's House scat. "I'll :erlainly give her credit if I get elected." Mrs. Kizer said, however, hat she hasn't been "active po- ilically." She related her political success to working hard ind "staying in the bak- iround." Mrs. Kizer said she didn't iced to seek publicity to get elected. "People hero know lie," she added. "I've always )een interested in the welfare of the community and in school work and church work." Each woman gave several reasons for choosing to seek of"ice. Mrs. Kizer said she became interested when she was a University of Arkansas law student and a Fort Smith woman ran for the legislatme. "I got interested then, but I didn't do anything about it until 21 years later," she laughed. Mrs. Hale said she became involved In the late former lov. Winthrop Rockefeller's attempt to rnise gas and cigarette taxes. "I found then that 1 couldn't get in touch with my representative," she said. Mrs. Pollen complained of a similai problem and said if elected she planned to keep atl office manned fulltime in her home district. Mrs. Troxcll, the stale's GOP national commitfeewoman, said she became interested in politics in 1954 because of alleged election violations in the state This year she is running for office "because I believe in two-party system and I'm alarmed that we've been slip ping into a one party system on both the state and national lev el." Mrs. Pollen said she was con cerned (hat "not enough ordina^ ry citizens were running for of' fice. I pay my taxes, and . want to have my say. To do that you have to run for of fice." All the candidates said that i' has been difficult to raise funds this year, but most said they were relying on personal re sources and small contributions from friends. "What we have got to stavl looking at in this country is a vay to preserve some kind of stabilizing influence for chil- Iren," she says. "Even if a couple i* sllll together but is going through a transitional stage, day care or some other option should be provided for hese children," she suggests. "An attempt to get divorce with dignity is what divorce ·oiinseling is all about, which is to say, even if you can't live ind love together, don't you lave an obligation to work together somehow and bring up rour children to be mentally icallhy human beings?" she asks. ABANDON ROLE She claims women have got to start becoming self-sufficient and give up the child-like role they've been accustomed to. Yet, Dr. Kiel-Friedman points out, they have the obligation to see to it that men catch up with them concerning the new ideas on women's liberation. "1 think very often women are striking out, feeling in order to be equal they have to be identical. They are taking upon themselves some of the worse aspects of masculinity and applying it in a practical form. "For example," she continues, "we have a lot of micleldle- class ladies who are abandoning their families just as they have · accused their men ol doing. They have accused theii men of not wanting to be a parent, and they don't want to be a parent, They've accused .their men of never being home, anc they chose never to be home But who provides the example far children, who provides the example one for another? It al gets back to the point that mas of us marrry as adolescents,' she says. POLITICAL PROGRAM What Dr. Kiel-Friedman would like to see put into effec' are some practical and realistic programs geared toward the marriage-minded. Noting tha in Hungary they insist tha' people applying for a marriage license take courses in budg' cling, family planning, sex edu cation, inter-personal relation ships and the like, she wonders why there are no such pro rams made available here. ihe also wonders why there is no such thing as divorce insurance where, if the marriage survives, the couple could enjoy :he money in their old age, and if it fails, the children would be provided for or the wife could use the money getting an education to 'support herself and the children. Dr. Kiel-Friedman even envisions legal contracts aeing drawn by the marrriage parties which would state what they expected to get out ot the relationship, with renewal options every year. "Henry Baskin and myself kind of got it together and it's been interesting," she says. We have two different per- spectives and wo often dis-, agree. "I don't think that Hie law Is : alr, by any menus. I think you :akc what you gel, and very ot- :en somebody will end up witli tho short end o( the slick. Divorce is the only game in which everybody con turn out to be n loser," she insists. 'But we did look at what r.cally happens with people in entanglements and found I hat if people only really knew what divorce was about maybe they would try and take a step back to preserve vyhat they already have," slio said. iNHniinniiiiiiiimniiinun Announcements Fayettevilie Evening Lions Ladies will meet at 7:30 p.m Monday in the home of Mrs. Bryce Davis, 2680 Centerwoodj !Tfjrthirf«!
