Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THi UTriMIDGE KUMD Monday, MHIMIV IS, tf 71 Consumers' union badgers government MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (AP) Consumer militance and increasing affluence are helping Consumers Union and its magazine spend more time and money badgering govern- ment consumer agencies. Testing and rating everything from automobiles to metro- nomes is what put the non- profit organization into busi- ness 34 years ago. Executive Director Walter Sunbach notes that at one time the organization was consider- ed so controversial that 60 ma- jor newspapers refused to ac- cept advertisements for CU's magazine, Consumer Reports. As recently as 1954 the House of Representatives Committee on un-American Activities list- ed Consumers Union as a sub- versive organization. Circulation of the magazine which accepts no advertising doubled in the last five years to just under two million.

"There's something about the uniform that brings out the beast in she said. "But I suppose it's one of the darker sides of a normally enjoyable job." Mrs. Thompson, mother of five, has encountered some odd looks from people on her mail route. "Even little children are sur- prised to see me delivering mail. I suppose it's because I'm doing a job that is normally as- sociated with a man." Before writing examinations last July, she drove a truck for the post office. She passed the exams with flying colors and immediately was accepted as a part-time postie. Now she is considered "full- time part-time she said, working from a.m. until 2 p.m. Soon she hopes to become strictly full-time, working one hour longer each day.

"I weigh the same now as when I started the job, so all the exercise really hasn't done me one bit of good.

(CP) Patti Wilson says there are no disadvantages to being blind. "You just have to learn to cope in a different said the 18-year-old high school stu- dent. The Grade 11 student at Salis- bury composite high school in suburban Sherwood Park said in an interview that she doesn't want anyone's sympathy. She never uses the word pity. But the girl, who was bora blind, does become discouraged at times. "Not in public, but sometimes when someone starts showing she said. "There's no harm in someone offering you assistance, but it bothers me that people think I am help- less. "Sometimes people want to help with something you can do. The problem is how to tell them what you can do without hurting their feelings." Five days a week Patti, like thousands of other Canadian students, waits for a school bus. The only thing to distinguish her is her white cane.

In school, the teacher or someone in the class reads what's on the blackboard. Most of the books for her class she gets on tape, Patti said, but some are in braille and others she cannot get in tape or braille. The latter books, are read to her. "Usually one of my parents reads to me." Patti gives a lot of credit to her mother for not offering the protection she might so easily have given to a blind child. "My mom had me do as much as possible. I was younger the family tried to keep things off the floor, but I'm not sure they even do that any- more." j Patti is class representative i at her school and writes for the i school newspaper, but the way she tells about these things makes you realize she doesn't j consider them outstanding. She likes to talk about her dog i Taffy and her two horses. "If someone goes with me, I can be convinced to go riding." But basically she prefers the dog. "I throw tilings for him and he brings them back." Patti's best subject is typing and she wants to be a secre- tary. STie types with the rest of I her class, but uses earphones plugged to a tape recorder to listen to dictation rather than reading from a book as other students do.
