Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 3S, 1971 - THE lethbridge HERALD - 23 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor 'pHE low price of pork obviously has something to do with the frequency of pork chops and pork loins appearing on Lethbridge dinner tables. While it's not the most favorite of meats for Canadians, it is gaining in popularity and should continue to do so when the price is right. In the last three years there's been no apparent increase in per capita consumption of pork in Canada. Statistics show that Canadians eat 90 pounds of beef per person per year, but only 53 pounds per person of pork. One reason for the increase, according to a federal livestock official, is the increase in hog production in the past year. Hog kills increased from 960,000 in the six-week period between Jan. 1-Feb. 13, 1970, to 1,271,000 in the same corresponding period this year. week -tj *- - - - */ - Some 24,000 more hogs are being killed per this year than last. According to the simple rules of supply and demand when there is plenty of pork, prices begin dropping which they did several months ago. The trend is expected to continue until late summer at least. According to the livestock spokesman, the hogs have already farrowed and the pigs are here so until the producers begin growing their grains again in the fall, prices will stay within the pocket-book's range. There is now such an oversupply of pork in Canada, that live hogs are being exported into the Pacific northwest region of the U.S. For some reason the exact figures of these exports are not available. By the same token, to keep up possibly with the demand for beef, Canada has been importing live cattle from the U.S. This import has now been stopped. The market is good while the price of beef is lower in the U.S. but since the beef prices in the American market have increased, the Vh cent duty does not make it pay. We were importing like mad too because the number of live cattle brought in to Canada increased from 900 head last year to 30,500,000 in six weeks this year. Whatever the reasons, pork is a good buy at present, often having dropped 50 cents to one dollar per pound, and judging by the beef consumption it'll be a refreshing change. Pork doesn't need the long cooking it was once thought to. If you're in need of some new recipes for pork, try Canada Packers booklet Pork Around the World. I have just a very few copies at the office for anyone who wishes one.   * Family Figures - The Meals on Wheels committee has served 1,780 meals since September to senior citizens in the community . . . another vital statistic of the committee's work is that 120 volunteers are needed in one month to drive cars and serve meals . . . it's a big job but 20 Lethbridge people are happy with the effort put out on their behalf each day. IA FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN r Dear Margaret Brookfield: What do you think of all this talk about woman's rights? I'm 62 and believe that women today have a lot more rights than I had when I was a girl. Why are they complaining so much? It seems to me that they ought to be satisfied with what, they've got instead of bellyaching about it. C.R., Beardstown, 111. Dear. C.R.: They certainly do have more rights.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: My problem is so unimportant, compared to others you receive, I'm ashamed to take your time, but I hope you can help me. I married a dear, sweet man who also lost his mate a few years ago. We are in the autumn of our lives but we do love each other. This may sound ridiculous but Newton enjoys holding hands in the movies. Frequently when we go to the cinema we take his older sister along. She has never married and is quite attached to her brother. It seems she is always seated between Newton and me in the movies and we can't hold hands. Is there a tactful way to get around this? -Still Romantic DEAR S.R.: Yes. Be especially courteous. Insist that your husband's sister go down the aisle first. She will then be the first one seated. You will follow, and Newton will follow you, and you will be seated in the middle. Get it? * *  DEAR ANN LANDERS: My four-year-old child was invited to a birthday party yesterday. I took him and several other youngsters in our station wagon. When it came time to cut the cake and blow out the candles I witnessed something I had seen dozens of times before, but I never thought much about it until now. When the birthday boy tried to blow out the candles he couldn't quite do it, so his grandmother "helped" him. It suddenly occurred to me, as she stood there blowing out the candles with her ugly moist breath, that she was spreading germs all over the cake. I tried to think of a way to keep my child from eating the cake but it was useless. Please say something about this health hazard. -I.E. of S.F. DEAR I.E. OF S.F.: Unless the woman had an infectious disease, it is unlikely that her breath would be a health hazard. These days with industrial pollution threatening our existence it seems almost ludicrous that a person would write in about a kindly grandmother breathing on a birthday cake. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Two years ago my sister married a homosexual. In less than a month he told Myra he had married only for "respectability." From that day on he rejected her. Last month he started divorce proceedings. Myra is fighting the divorce. This should tell you right away that she is a nut. Myra has upset the entire family because of her behavior. She rattles on and on about her marvelous husband, how well he treats her and how thoughtful he is. It's enough to make a person throw up. A few weeks ago Myra began to have some physical problems (stomach pains and headaches.) Her internist sent her to a psychiatrist. I hope he will help her. In the meantime, what can I do about this balmy girl who is making such a big fool of herself?-Rx-11 DEAR Rx: Nothing. But you can do something for yourself. Separate yourself from Myra's problem. She sounds like a sick cookie who needs understanding, not criticism. own Among the out of town guests attending the sixty-fifth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. George Bruchet, were Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Bruchet and son, Billy; Mr. and Mrs. J.
