The aim of the conference, sponsored by the School of Nursing of the University of British Columbia and the fed- eral health department, is to stimulate an interest in nursing research, a relatively new field in Canada. The nurses hope to identify needs for research in specific areas of nursing' as well os_to explore ways of co-ordinating nursing research in Canada. Floris King, associate profes- sor at the University of British Columbia's School of Nursing, said in an interview that mrs- ing research now is centred bas: ically in government and profes- sional agencies and universities She said research could be done on continuity of nursing care and a larger role for nurses in fields such as inten sive care. Continuity of care could mean preventive health care mea sures as well as hospital treat ments of a patient and "follov through" into the communitj afterwards. courses on home management elderly citizens with such (or people who subjects.

SSIMPSONS-SEARS Ann' Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please, Ann, a word or two to the credit card nuts like myself people whose eyes are bigger than their budgets. Idiots who have a weakness for things they have no right to own. Something happened yester- day that made me realize what a fool I am. I was in a department store, shopping. The woman next to me was trying to cash a check. The clerk asked for a credit card to establish identification. The woman replied, "Sorry, I have no credit cards." The clerk then asked in what stores she had charge accounts. The woman answered, "Sorry, 1 don't have any charge accounts either. We pay cash for everything." With that she handed over her driver's license for identification. I envied that woman so much it hurt. There I stood with at least a dozen credit cards in my purse, charge accounts all over to my tonsils hi debt, wondering how I'd make it through the month. By the time I made all my payments I wouldn't have a dime left. I'd have to charge everything. My friends and relatives calle me Giant-Hearted Geraldine. I buy fabulous gifts for everybody. I also have a yen for luxuries. In my rational moments I know I have no business even looking at cashmere skirts and handmade French nightgowns. Please, Ann, print my letter for the folks out there who have not yet been trapped by "easy terms" and "enjoy now, pay later." Tell the young marrieds, for example, "Buy only what you can pay for." They'll have a happier life, fewer headaches and more self-respect. Red-Ink Violet DEAR EED: Thanks for those words of wisdom. And now I give you a suggestion? Throw out all your credit cards and close your charge accounts. Next year at this time you'll have fewer headaches and more self-respect.

Tough life for model Sam Jones EDMONTON (CP) Some pirouetted down the ramp un- der the hot lights, smil- ing, smooth and running a temperature.. But it's all part of the tough life of model Samantha Jones. After a quick visit to the doc- tor, she was back again for the second show in the evening. Samantha Jones, an Ottawa girl who a few years ago strug- gled along on minimum re- hearsal wages while trying for an acting career, now is on the world's most-wanted modeling list. She earns up to 5500 a day and has averaged a' year. But it's not so simple and it's often more adventuresome than performing with a high temperature, she said in an in- terview. Sam, as she's most often call- ed, has posed for photograph- ers under circumstances that would make a strong man shudder atop an iceberg in Greenland with only a chiffon dress between her and the freezing wind, lashed to a raft j swirling down the Colorado i River, astride a menagerie of j animals, i n c 1 u ding mountain goats, camels and elephants. She was in Calgary as well to do two more shows as part of a nine-city cross-Canada I fashion tour. is. giving mink- ing before the baby arrives.
