Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta It THf LE1KBRIDCE HEKAID IhuriJay, Ap.il 10, 1970 TV Educates Cousumers, Says Specialist SASKATOON (CP) Televi- sion is providing home educa- tion lor those wfio can't get put of die house, says a continuing educatioa specialist from the University oi Saskatchewan who doubles as a TV program host- ess. Jean Jamieson, hostess of Consumer Notes, says he- pro- gram is carried by all six Sas- katdiewan commercial televi- sion stations as a weekly 12- tnin'jte program. way I can reach the kiid of audience uho and need consumer education, but who get out and gel she said. "It's encouraging to receive letters sajing the program helps with consumer problems. Lite UK one I got from a mother who watched wliile lo'd- log diapers. That's the audience .we want to reach." Miss Jamieson became inter- ested in television education for the homemaker three years ago in Prince Albert where she did "a couple of programs" a borne economist. This year she thought the uni- versity's extension departmenl might be willing to participate in a series on consumer educa- tion. PROGRAMS AHE FREE "I wanted lo do something for the consumer because o[ Ihe re- cent government report which pointed out how much the con- sumer needed more information and education about buying." The university's audio-visiia department docs Ihe filminj and the programs are suppliet free to the stations. She works on broad basic con cepls of consumer education because it is the basics that she thinks are most necessary for unders landing. "But I have to use specific ex amples, too. That's what mos of the audience wants to h specifics." Programs are planned on a hasic idea, such as lire process a consumer should go througl before buying ea item. She then uses a specific example to illus trale the process. Other topics include cash ani credit buying, how to evaluati advertising, where lo obtain in- formation about a product be- fore bujing and how lo carte for Bo-called mirac'.e fabrics.

For The Record By MAKItYN ANWRSON Herald-Family Editor abortion caravan organized by Ihe Women's Liberation Movement, is on its way across ada lo reach Ottawa on May 10. Its beginning was not spectacular. The gathering place for Ihe caravan in Vancou- ver was The Fountain, which is situated outside the court house. The Fountain is a subject of much dis- cussion due to the numbers of hippie types who lounge there during the day and night. From my hotel room last Sunday overlooking The Fountain the little drama unfolded. The demonstration was slated lor 12 noon and by only a handful of long-haired, long-coated, generally disheveled young people were present. The total effect of (lie deinonsfralion was lo cause barely a ripple in the average Vancouverite's life. Inside the hotel were nearly delegates to the conference of the Child Welfare League of America composed in the main of social workers, and oulside Viere the living subjects of their discourse. By 12 noon three cars were visible, the camper bus which carried a coffiv. on the too, a car decorated with yellow balloons and a (ruck ivilh loudspeakers. Construction workers from the other side of The Fountain brought their lunch to eat. The courthouse gardener tended his flowers, ami the commissionaire made his rounds. The demonstration began. "Women should have control of their own bodies." "We are liberated'women." Tough words on a lough topic. Like all good demonstrators they posed, for TV cameras with their banners proclaiming the number of deaths from illegal abortions performed each year for Canadian women. By a crowd of about 50 persons had gathered in the courtyard. Lawyers coming out of court passed by with obvious curiosity and a few slopped to listen. The words echoed around tie block as the loudspeak- er truck circled the area. The Vancouver Chief of Police has forbidden such demonstrations and as singing began and more peo- ple stopped by, the commissionaire moved in a little- closer. The camera buffs were having a field day. A tight nucleus had formed at the courthouse steps. CWLA delegates identified by the blue folders they carried were beginning to put in an appearance. At the loudspeaker was ordered shut off by the commissionaire. Six and seven-year-old children ran about playing with the yellow balloons, looking oddly out of place in a demonstration which could affect them in the future, and may have done so more had it been held in the pasi. now and the construction workers head back to work on their 30-odd-siorey skyscraper. Conven- tion delegates disperse. A tinal rally of support and the cars begin to load up. At two motorcycle policemen arnve on the scene looking very warm in dark coals. They keep well back of the action on the sieps but their bikes are attracting a crowd of their own on the front street. One policeman even discovers an automobile ille- gally parked on a side street, and while he waits, he writes, out a ticket. At the little caravan with about 15 young women move out with the assistance of the policemen who ease them into the busy lunchtime traffic. The traffic policemen move off at. of them making an illegal u-turn as he returns from whence he came. By 12-50 only a few leaflets blow as a reminder of the gathering of people there previously. A ymmg toddler clutches a yellow balloon as she walks with her mother, both of whom are probably unaware of the origins of the bright toy. There will be some who will write these young people off as dumb kids; some who would ask for more discretionary tactics, and some who will only wish them well. Their audacity and tactlessness will not be well re- ceived in Oltawa or across the country. They ask too much, too soon and they won't wail., Yet they are making their mark on the slate of public opinion.
