Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, December 13, 1974 Sugar prices expected to drop in 18 months TORONTO (CP) Sugar prices will probably be lower 18 months from now, but there might be periodic "bumps up- ward" in the next few months, the president of Redpath In- dustries said this week. Neil Shaw, head of one of Canada's biggest sugar refineries, told a news conference that by June, 1976, sugar will probably sell for 25 to 35 cents a pound, compared with about 56 cents a pound now. But the price of the 1960s, seven to eight cents a pound, is gone forever. Sugar consumption fell 10 or 12 per cent in recent months and November consumption was 16 per cent less than No- vember last year, he said. The reduced demand was forcing prices down. The price of refined sugar reached its peak Nov. 21 when it sold for 77 cents a pound. Mr. Shaw said there could be a lag of a week to 10 days before new prices would be re- flected on supermarket shelves. Retailers had to get rid of stock bought earlier at higher prices. The Montreal-based com- pany announced consolidated income for the year ended Herald- Family Sept. 30 increased to million or a share from million or the previous year. Consolidated sales rose to million from million. Sales from refined sugar amounted to million compared with million last year. Redpath Industries also manufactures aluminum and plastic construction materials, produces plastic packaging materials and table wine and is involved in engineering 'and agriculture consulting services. "Total sugar operations provided less than half of the company's Mr. Shaw said. "The diversification program instituted seven years ago became the com- pany's profit leader for 1974." He said higher sugar prices did not result in higher profits from sugar operations. The STAIRWAY TO GUITARS Seethe largest collection of Brand Name quality guitars in Western Canada.

WP closes until Jan. 6 The Lethbridge Women's Place will be closed from mid December to early January for the holiday season. Acting co ordinator Susan Oughtred says the Women's Place will be closed Dec. 14 to Jan. 5, inclusive. The WP recently elected three new board members to a six month term. Elected were Ms. Oughtred, Jean Kuijt and Fran Hoye Dear Ann Landers: Well, here's one you've never had before- How do you tell a charming, dignified, elderly man who has been playing golf nearly every day at a private club for the past 10 years (or longer) that he is supposed to be a member or pay daily greens fees? As newly elected club of- ficers we reviewed the list of paid up memberships and discovered to our astonish- ment that this distinquished old gentleman, who is prac- tically a fixture around the place, is not a member, nor has he ever been one' Apparently everyone assumed he was a member and no one bothered to ques- tion his right to play here. He must owe the club thousands of dollars by this time. What do we do now? Quandary In Hartford Dear Heart: What is the elderly, charming, distin- quished "fixture's" financial status? Is he on Social Security, loaded, or what? This ought to be taken into consideration. If the gentleman is well heeled, he should be asked to join or pay daily greens fees. If he's a man of modest means, you could be sweet and give him an honorary lifetime membership. Dear Ann Landers: I often wonder how many people bother to write and say, "Thank you for the good ad- vice." This lette'r is several years late, but I want to write it anyway. The problem was my husband. He had some very fine qualities. The children adored him and ours was a Christmas Shop at "The Store Where!

The details don't matter now, but you advised rne to "carry on, say nothing, and forgive and foget." As time went on, we became closer and happier. His "night work" ceased and I never asked him why. Several weeks ago, my darl- ing passed away suddenly. I'm very grateful to you, Ann, because if it hadn't been for you, I would have left him. instead, he was at my side when the children married and made us grandparents. We had many happy years together before God called him home. Please know, dear, I am In Your Debt Dear Friend: You were kind to write. Thanks for a real day brightener. Dear Ann Landers: Is there such a thing as an "unwritten code" for hiring babysitters? I hope you will settle something by suggesting a few moral guidelines. Here is what happened to me. When good friends asked for the name of a reliable sitter I was always happy to help them out. But what about a neighbor who saw two of my sitters in the yard playing with my children9 This woman came over, took their names and telephone numbers and now when I call they aren't available because they are sitting for HER. Am I mistaken to consider this un- ethical? Snookered And Mad Dear Snooks: Your neighbor should have asked YOU for the names of the sitters and not gone directly to them. Once a friend or neighbor has the name of a sitter, however, I know of no way to prevent that person from pre empting you except by es- tablishing a standing date say, every Friday or Saturday night and paying the girl whether she sits or not. It occurs to me that your neighbor cannot be using BOTH girls she grabbed when your back was turned. If she has one tied up, why not call the other? Is pot a drug? Can L.S.D. and pills open new worlds for you? Stop quessing. Get the facts in Ann Landers's new booklet, "Straight Dope on Drugs."
