Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, December 9, 1970 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: A great man died today. He wasn't a world leader or a famous doctor or a war hero or a sports figure or a business tycoon. But he was a great man. He was my father. He didn't get his picture in the paper for heading up things. I guess you might say he was a person who never cared for credit or honors. He did corny things, like pay his bills on time, go to church on Sunday and hold an office in the PTA. He helped his kids with their homework and drove his wife to the shopping center to do the grocery buying on on Thursday night. He got his kicks hauling his teen-agers and their friends to and from football games. He enjoyed simple things like a picnic in the park, country music, mowing the grass and running with the dog. Tonight is the first night of my life without him. I don't know what to do with myself so I am writing to you. I am sorry now for the times I didn't show him the proper respect. But I am thankful for many things. I'm thankful because God let me have him for 15 years. And I'm thankful that I was able to let him know how much I loved him. He died with a smile on his face. He knew he was a success as a husband and a father, a brother, a son, and a friend. I wonder how many millionaires can say that? Thanks for lstening, Ann. You've been a great help. -His Daughter DEAR DAUGHTER: I am printing your beautiful letter. Tbank you for providing my readers with food for thought.  * * DEAR ANN: A boy I'll call Dan is a nice guy but dull, dull, dull. I had three dates with him and I had to work so hard keeping the conversation going I felt as if I had done a double shift in a band laundry. What can a girl do with a guy who ansers in one-word sentences? -Tired DEAR TIRED: Gary Cooper's conversation consisted of "Yup," and women adored him. Apparently Dan isn't your groove so fix him up with a non-stop talker. The woods are full of 'em.    What awaits you on the other side of the marriage veil? How can you be sure your marriage will work? Read Ann Landers' booklet "Marriage - What To Expect."

Guide suggests concern for toy dollar value By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer rIX)YS supply children with an important medium for self-expression and are given to children as tokens of love. The Canadian Toy Testing Council has published a booklet, Toys: A Guide For Consumers, in co-operation with the Canadian Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. It states that Canadians spend approximately $200 million a year on toys and therefore should be as cone e r n e d about getting as much value for toy dollars as food dollars. Value in toys means not only the hours of play children derive from a toy but the extent to which the toy adds to their total growth. A toy should be bought to suit the child and not the purchaser, said the federal department of consumer and corporate affairs in a release. It was stressed in the release that quantity is not a substitute for quality. A few carefully^ selected toys of high quality produce better results than overloading children with a hit and miss collection, But children's interests constantly change and toys change so parents find themselves face with confusing and glittering choices in large fancy boxes which are splattered with appealing advertisements. Frances Schultz, of the Leth-bridge branch of the Consumers Association of Canada said while shopping recently she was surprised at the packaging on a doll which read, "An un-advertised on television toy." Common sense in buying toys is important as with everything else but a few general guides should be kept in mind as suggested by the toy testing council. Most important is the age and ability of the child. Disappointment may result if the toy is too simple to be challenging or is too complicated. Toys are chewed, banged,, off-the-board games are now dustry for the family, dropped, sat on, rolled and taking over a very large and The action, simple rules and North Plaza Beauty Salon 610 13th St. N.

The government has just issued a hazardous product (toys) regulations on the recommendation of Ron Basford, federal minister of consumer and corporate affairs. Toys are an important part in a child's world of make-believe. Colorful, but simple, toys broaden the scope of the fantasy. A child with a simple toy and the magic of his imagination, is far richer than a bored child simply watching a limited mechanical toy perform. As children absorb a sense of good design from their surroundings, it is important that toys be aesthetically pleasing. This means clear, harmonious colors and a pleasing design. Toys which do not function as intended can be extremely frustrating to a child and in some instances, present real hazards. The reasons for malfunction may include: tippy tricycle, lightweight blocks not stacking properly, poor instructions, brittle plastics, insufficient parts or material to complete a project. More play value can be achieved if toys are related to those already owned, as toys can supplement each other, Truck sets, several doll outfits, or animal sets are a few examples, but too many at once just overwhelm the child. At one time, board games were popular and hours would be spent with young and old alike, organizing rules and continuing the game. Julius Cooper, vice-president of research and development of a major toy company said in a news story that three-dimensional MISS TEENAGE AMERICA - Miss Teenage America, Rewa Colette Walsh, Miss Teenage Los Angeles, Calif., is congratulated by the current Miss Teenage America, Debbie Patton of Odessa, Tex (right) at the conclusion of the Miss Teenage America Pageant in Ft.
