Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE tElHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, December 26, 1970 4-ami For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor rr WAS the night alter Christmas, and all through the pad; Contentment was heard from gifts they'd all had; The turkey was ealen, the bones nearly bare: Of meals for next month there was hardly a care; Christmas had come, that dreaded of times. When there were never enough pennies, nicklcs and dimes Father had tried, and mother had too But winter employment had not come through; Shopping was hard when money was short; It was hard enough buying their milk by the quart; For Julie and Johnny and little Pat too: At Christmas there was just so much yon could do; The children knew their friends had more But never thought of themselves as poor; They had a family, and "needs" were met With love, and so they didn't fret; The "wants" were harder, those had to wait Till times were better: when it got too late You had to turn to others for aid Till you got a job where yon got paid: It was called assistance, welfare, charity But on the scale of life there was no parity- Some lived well, some did not; And many shared with what they'd got; It was hard to know you couldn't do it alone But before your pride came family and home. Now another Christmas they'd had to enjoy The children were happy with each of their toys. Next year- would be different he'd hope and he'd pray Happy Christmas would come when at work lie could stay.

Secretaries xliate j don t accept ition, duly Consumer education, theme for television talk show. By JEANNE n. O'MALLEY BUDAPEST, Hungary (API- Looking smart can be a full- ime job for any woman. For he woman behind the Iron Cur- ain, it means a full-time job nd moonlighting. In countries where a midi- coat costs two months' salary, it takes a lot of extra effort to wear the new styles. But where many Western women have dug in their heels and refused to wear the new lengths, East bloc women go to almost any lengths to get them. Many have a sec- ond job. some have tliree or even four. The fairy godmother is the private dressmaker who copies jie new styles from well- thumbed Western fashion maga- zines passed around among her clients. In Warsaw, for example, she will make a new coat for about ?60, less than a third the price of a ready made model. She must have been working at top speed this fall because War- it's a rare Magyar who ears one. In Yugoslavia, where the standard of living most nearly approaches that of the West, stores show a stunning variety of luxury goods, some of it locally produced, some of it im- ported. A famous-brand French sweater and skirt set is priced at less than it would be in Paris, but it still costs a good third of the average monthly wage. The Yugos 1 a v export enter- prise recently opened a branch of Miss Dior in Belgrade on the theory that all women want lux- uries, buy them on trips to the West, so they might as well be available on home ground. To date, many women have come to look but few can afford to buy anything. One girl who bought a long coat for dinars, ex- plained that both her parents work; they were giving her the coat as a graduation present. A woman doctor who earns a high professional's salary still found the clothes in the shop too much of a luxury for her. By LYNN ZIMMER Peterborough Examiner PETERBOROUGH. Ont.

In Stalinist days, the average citizen had money but no way to use it. Rents and utilities were low and there was little to buy in the stores. Now stores are bulging with consumer goods but prices are disproportionate to pay. Monthly salaries range from SGO in Bulgaria to S173 in Hungary.

The Peterborough CAC has a box number at the city post of- fice through which they answer and investigate all types of con- sumer complaints.
