Meat boycott 6a lot of tripe' LIVERMORE, Calif. (AP) The meat boycott is a lot of tripe, and housewives deserve the higher meat prices they are getting, says Margie Thompson, More Family page 23 who has been in the butcher business for 30 years. To prove her point, Mrs. Thompson plans to start a meat cutting class to show house- wives how to cut costs by re- trieving choice cuts from less savory ones. Mrs. Thompson says rising meat costs have been caused to a great extent by housewives' demands for more packaged gourmet cuts. She also criti- cizes women for skimping on family food budgets to pay for other luxury items.

"Then you want it all double-tagged at the checkout counter and the cost of paper products went up 29 per cent this year-" "Who, please tell me, is sup- posed to absorb she asked. Mrs. Thompson, 52, said housewives use their flexible food budget to get money for "something they fancy." "Do we scream and pass out petitions protesting a shop that marked up a dress 100 per she said. "No, we buy the dress, worry the money out of the food budget and wear the dress hoping the price tag will show." TELLS TRADE SECRETS Mrs. Thompson, who learned meat cutting after answering a "Butcherette Wanted" ad in 1943, now wants to teach tech- niques housewives can use save money. A round steak, selling here for a pound, if properly cut yields top and swiss steaks which sell for from 20 cents to 60 cents more in stores, she said. Housewives could save "at least 40 cents a by cut- ting steaks are stew pieces off a prime rib roast, she said. And a large porterhouse or T-bone can be cut into New York steaks or filet mignon. She also recommends saving leftovers and to stop purchasing "out-of-sight" luncheon meats which sell in four-ounce pack- ages for 69 cents. She termed TV dinners "an abomination" CAC seeks solution to rising costs which sell for high prices but pack little meat- Mrs. Thompson was laid ofi at a supermarket where she worked as a meat wrapper this week because women aren' buying meat. But she predictec "petitions to the governmenl won't do any appreciable amount of good." "One lady with a petition walked up to me and said my wages ought to be cut so the price of meat will go down and she can buy Mrs. Thompson said. "I asked her if she would be willing to take a similar cut and she just walked away with- out answering." WeeWhimsv w t :h9 ens at for herV.ce WNmiy.

"Successive governments have been investigating food prices for the past 20 years but have taken little concrete ac- lion to implement the recom- mcndations of the various com- j mitJees on inflationary trends j in consumer prices." said Maryon Brechin, CAC pres- ident. Mrs. Brechin added, "CAC recognizes the beef boycott as an expression of consumer frustration due to government inaction. CAC does not support the boycott because it is a short- term reaction of limited effec- tiveness and is not the solution to inflationary pressures which have increased the prices of ail foods." "In its brief to Hie House of ConmxHJs1 specaa] on trends in food prices, CAC has already pointed out that tine proWem is complex and re- quires allariJon at an levels of the food distribution said Mrs. Brechin. "The borf production cycle is particularly 3omg. and orderly markeSing oondilwrns are most important ui minimizinf: the cost of production to the farm- er. A boycott may create serious disorder in the market and make it difficult for farmers lo increase supplies sufficiently to meet future needs.

Phone 327-1541 -Saturday, April 7, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON 'JPHEKE is one thing about hurbands (particularly I find highly offen- sive. The moment a man places that ring on the third finger, left hand, of his dearly-belov- ed, he trips a switch in his brain, activating some sort of radar device which un- erringly zeroes in on every- thing his wife specifically doesn't wish him to know. All would have been well had our neighbor not asked Bill sometime later, about the waves of black smoke coming from our house. So naturally he glancefl around the kitchen and discovered the curtains were scorched. A wife is entitled to her private mistakes, but how many of us ever get away with them? I know I don't. I discovered this the day I popped a chicken in the oven, went visiting, and for- got all about it. Several hours later I re- turned to find smoke billow- ing from a broken kitchen window and two firemen non- chalantly hosing down an in- cinerated bird laid out on the back porch. After thoroughly assessing the situation, and checking to see that none of our friends had heard about it, I decided to put the whole sordid af- fair out of my mind, and es- pecially not to mention it to my Willyum. All went well, until some nasty interfering person mailed him an Insurance form. A little later, I sharply re- sisted the temptation to save, and overspent on a dress I'd had my eye on for quite some time. I didn't exactly lie about it, but I did infer the price was around The first time I wore the dress the zipper jammed. And who rushed over to help me and found the price tag I had forgotten to remove? Right on! Not long after that, I spill- ed some fat on the cooker. The flames were quickly smothered, but the smoke was overwhelming. The chil- dren and I were forced to evacuate the house. A little bribery, in the shape of ham- burgers and shakes, and they promised not to bring up the incident to their father, un- less they were asked outright if we'd had a fire that day. I have also noticed lately, that Willyum has developed a very sneaky habit of looking over our cancelled cheques, so he can tell when I go over- board in my spending. This bad habit occurred shortly after the turkey inci- dent. I had accidentally left the bird sitting in the sun on the kitchen counter, and by the time I remembered it, the thing had turned a most pec- uliar shade of green. One whiff, and I knew ft was not going to grace our table that night, so I quietly slipped it into an old plastic bag, dumped that into a big green garbage bag, and car- ried it out to the back yard. I should have known better. We have this big dumb dog living down our alley who is crazy in love with our spe- cial brand of garbage. Bill came home that even- ing, sallied forth to clean up the usual mess left by the dog, and discovered assorted bits and pieces of highly of- fensive turkey scattered around including the label with stamped on it. When he finally cooled down, he hopped in my car to get away from me for a whale and as he reached up to pull down the sun visor, he dis- covered an assortment of parking tickets I had also de- cided not to mention- He sat with a glazed look in his eyes for several minu- tes, then quietly announced that as of that moment, toe honeymoon was definite- ly over. The time had come, he said, to take me off my pedestal and put me on a very, very strict budget. But the strange thing is, that when our positions are reversed, and I calmly and kindly point out to him the error of his way, this is what is known as nagging.
