18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tumdty, 11, 1975 Elle poll shows: Most housewives envy France's working wives PARIS (Reuter) Half of France's stay-at-home house- wives are jealous of women who go out to work. They feel working women have more successful marriages, greater financial freedom and a wider circle of friends. These are the findings of the weekly magazine Elle in a giant poll on women's work- ing conditions that will give Francoise Giroud, France's first secretary of state for women's affairs, plenty of food for thought in the struggle to liberate her sex. Housework takes up an erage of more than nine hours a day and only one French -The Herald- Family husband in 10 is prepared to give a hand with the washing and dusting, the survey found. The poll, conducted by 750 interviewers across France, has been published as a 200- page book under the title, The Great Adventure of Work for Women. Adjudicator named Thelma Johannes of Edmonton has nam- edas an adjudicator for the Kiwanis Music Festi- val, to be held April 14 to 19. Ms. Johannes teaches advanced pianoforte at the Alberta College Music Centre. She has been a festival adjudicator and examiner for the Western Board of Music since 1967 She has toured Canada as a piano soloist and has performed with Mont- real's CBC Symphony and the Calgary Philharmonic. But for those stuck at home it's far from a great adven- ture. Elle said: "One in two housewives confessed to envy- ing those who worked because they had more contacts with the world, greater financial independence and better rela- tions with their husbands. "Many women long to work. After the age of 40 they feel both available for work and frustrated at the same time. Many feel the obstacles are insurmountable. They feel they will be rejected for being too old or having too little training." Another common grumble was that "the woman who stays home has this feeling of guilt because she thinks she is useless." Some men tended to be scornful of them. However, once the woman landed a job it was far from the paradise she had ex- pected. Elle noted: "In every field women are relegated more of- ten than men to jobs with lit- tle responsibility and there- fore little pay. The salary gap between the two is 33 per cent on average." Too many chefs Masters of the grill and spatula, this bevy of chefs drew a crowd of 300 people to the AOTS Pancake Day held on the weekend at McKillop United Church. In this instance, satisfied patrons attest It wasn't a case of too many chefs spoiling the bat- ter.

Proceeds from the event will support such AOTS projects as scouts, the church boys' choir and a scholarship fund for ministry students.

Each Helen Reddy Free and Easy Capitol 6.49 Useful hints for blender buyers Health food enthusiasts and young mothers anxious to cut baby food cost have been leading the pack of consumers who are adding electric blenders to their kitchen appliances. However, although appliance manufacturers would like you to think blenders can replace wire whisks, cheese graters coffee grinders, hand held egg beaters, electric hand mixers and food choppers in one fell swoop, their blandishments must be taken with a grain of salt. Blenders basically perform four tasks grinding, chop- ping, blending and liquefying ingredients. They are excellent at blending sauces and medium consistency batters, making applesauce, mixing salad dressings, soups and beverages. However, they will not. whip egg whites, chop ice evenly for drinks, grate cheese finely, handle heavy thick batters, knead dough or mash potatoes. The array of speed settings on many models of blenders is staggering and does not necessarily translate into better perfor- mance. And the speeds of the various settings vary greatly among different manufacturers. Remember that additional speeds are unlikely to save more than a few seconds in the kitchen. If you've invest in a blender, check for the following features before you make your selection. Base: a sturdy well balanced base with container fitting tightly into base; easy to clean control panel and allowance for runoff of leaks and spills away from the motor and controls. Cover: a tight fitting cover with sealed openings where the removable measuring cup fits and spout covered by lid. Blade: blades with curved arms extending both upwards and downwards provide the best cutting action by covering a wider area; removable cutter assemblies. The easiest blenders' to clean have blade assemblies which can be removed from the bottom of the container. Container (usually 40 to 48 ounce there are ad- vantages and disadvantages to both glass and plastic con- tainers. Although glass containers can be machine washed, will last longer and do not retain odours, some of them are extreme- ly heavy and when filled to capacity could become awkward and tiring to. handle. They are also more expensive. Plastic con- tainers, though lighter, are less durable, tend to scratch and discolour easily, must be washed by hand.and odours may linger. A good container will have ridges on the inner walls which will deflect the ingredients back into the path of the blades and assist in the mixing process. A narrow pouring spout is handy and much neater than a broad, wide mouthed lip. Make sure the blender is not too high to fit under your kitchen cup- boards.
