Turkey Easy on Budget
By The Associated Press
Americans trying to fit holiday celebrations into inflation-tight budgets’have at least one thing to tie thankful for this year: Turkey is cheaper than it was in 1973.
An Associated Press survey showed that while the cost of most of the ingredients of a Thanksgiving dinner have gone up. turkey prices have dropped by about 20 cents a pound to an average of 49 to 69 cents.
Poultry producers said the reason for the decline was an abundant supply and they complained they were losing money on their birds
“We’ve been losing up to $2 per bird,” said Carl .Johnson, head of the Wisconsin Turkey Federation. Poultry producers said it costs about 35 cents a pound to raise a turkey. They’re getting only about 2K cents a pound
The rest of the Thanksgiving dinner is more expensive, however
A comparison of supermarket advertisements in Montgomery county. Md., for November. 1973. and November. 1974, showed bread, used for stuffing, was up from 311 to 48 cents a loaf and fresh cranberries went from 29 to 39 cents a pound. And. if you get

Wo man Settlement for Pill Damage
SALEM. Ore. (UPI) - Two manufacturers of birth control pills were ordered to pay a 37-vear-old Portland woman $280,978 damages Friday by the Oregon supreme court.
The woman. Mrs. Freda McEwen, claimed she had headaches and falling hair from one type of pill and then contracted blindness in one eye after she switched to another type.
In upholding a lower court ruling, the state justices found there was substantial evidence that both pills were factors rn producing the injuries.
The suit was against Ortho Pharmaceutical Corp , manufacturers of Ortho-Nov urn pills, and Syntex laboratories, makers of Norinyl pills.
Mrs. McEwen began using Norinyl in December. 1966. and experienced headaches. nausea, falling hair and other effects. She switched to Ortho-Nov urn a year later and eventually suffered blindness in one eye and damage to the other eye.
The state supreme court said the manufacturers of such drugs have the duty “of making timely and adequate warnings to the medical pro-fession of any dangerous side effects produced by its drugs."
Although the companies did make some warnings, the jury and the supreme court found the actions were not sufficient to alert the woman s doctor to the [stssible hazards

ERA Supporters Say Gains Made
By Peggy Simpson
WASHINGTON (AP) - Supporters of the Equal Rights amendment say the recent state legislative elections have brightened the chances that five more states will ratify FRA, thus making it part of the Constitution.
The Constitution requires approval by .38 states, and 33 states previously have approved the amendment. The FRA would prohibit discrimination based on sex
The new optimism among ERA supporters represents a turnaround from the pessimism expressed last summer at a meeting of the National Women s Political Caucus.
Mary Brooks, ERA coordinator for the League of Women Voters, and Pat Keefer of Common Cause had told the caucus that they doubted the ERA would be approved by more than two or three more states this spring.
But the elections changed that forecast.
“I don’t know of a state where we haven t picked up pro* ERA strength," said Brooks.
The defeat of anti-ERA incumbents was particularly noticeable in such states as Missouri. Florida. Arizona and South Carolina, she said
In some contests, the victors were women challenging anti-ERA office holders In other cases, the winners wore men who had the backing of the informal FRA lobby, consisting of the league, the National Women’s Political Caucus. Common Cause, the National Organization for Women, the Business and Professional Women, and others.
“This will have a tremendous effect on the lobbying power of the women’s groups," said Brooks. “I^ast year we weren't taken seriously. This year we damn well are going to be. ”
Diane Vaulter of Common Cause said pro-FRA candidates won in the overwhelming majority of races where the ERA was a central issue.
This year's elections were the first to test the political potency of the FRA issue.
With six or seven local lobby groups questioning candidates about their positions on the amendment, candidates were forced to take stands on it as never before, Brooks said
“I will be amazed if Illinois. North Dakota, and Missouri don't ratify it next year," she said. “North Carolina. Oklahoma and Nevada have very good chances. Florida, Indiana and Arizona are going to have some real battles but they have a chance to ratify, too."

Fabric Softener Tenderizes Cloth
A fabric softener “tenderizes’" the fabric so that it feeds soft and smooth to the touch. It also makes towels fluffier.
This occurs because the softener provides a lubricating film on the strands of the fiber, allowing them to move more readily against each other. As a result, wrinkling is minimized and ironing either eliminated or reduced.
An open house is planned Sunday from I to 5 at Jane Boyd Community house in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Harley Robinson, 1512 Tenth street SE. The occasion is their 5ftth wedding anniversary.

HAPPY IN CLEVELAND
DEAR HAPPY: I’m happy toe Happy that someone has had the courage to break with tradition in the interest of fairness and common sense. Maybe >ou ll start a new tradition. I hope so.

DEAR ABBY: VIT11 you
please let doctors, nurses, aides and hospital personnel know that when someone who works with them is hospitalized. that person deserves the same consideration about visiting hours as anyone else in the hospital?
I was hospitalized with a serious injury two months ago and during my stay, even though there was a big sign on my door saying “Positively No Visitors, Doctor’s Orders",
I was pestered to death by coworkers who felt I weeded a little cheering up
Nurses, doctors, aides, and people from the hospital .office came to see me. Most of them stayed for only 1ft minutes hut multiply that by 5ft every day and you TI have some idea of how exhausted I was.
I finally had to leave the hospital to get some rest I love my co-workers, but they almost killed me with kindness.
Please put this in your column I hope it goes up on hospital bulletin boards all over the country.

DEAR ELO: Heres your letter. I hope it works.
