Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 28, 1973 ~ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 21 Ann j Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Someone wrote to you recently with an unusual problem. It was a boy 16 years old who couldn't eat anything but his mother's cooking. When he tried to eat in a restaurant or in the home of a friend he lost his appetite completely or became nauseated. You told him it was purely psychological and to get some counselling. That got me to thinking. My problem is just the opposite. I'm a guy, age 15. I can eat anything, anytime, anyplace - but not at home. I just can't eat my mother's cooking. I wouldn't say Mom is a rotten cook, but on second thought she's pretty bad. She hates cooking and it sure shows. Her best meals are TV dinners. She's even had some failures with THEM. Sometimes the chicken hasn't � DEAR ANN LANDERS: Tim and I have decided to get married next June. He is 23, a graduate student at Columbia. I am 22, a senior at Barnard. We are both being put through school by our parents. The problem: I don't want an engagement ring. Tim's mother thinks I need one. She wants to give him a large diamond that has been in their family for a long time. I don't want to offend her, but I don't want the ring. My mother says I will make an enemy of my future inlaws if I refuse to accept it. Tim says it is up to me but he would like me to have it DEAR ANN LANDERS: There are between four and five million people in the United States who have sugar diabetes. Since so many individuals have this disease, why don't the proprietors of eating places use their heads and offer artificially sweetened beverages and canned fruits? Will you please suggest to the restaurant and drive-in owners that they take this m'atter under consideration? DEAR ANN LANDERS: Since answers are your specialty, I am coming to you for help. I need one. My wife and I have been married three years. We want a family, but not until we are ready. I am sick and tired of people asking m e, "Is your wife pregnant yet?" It's nobody's business and I don't understand where they get the nerve. Can you think of an answer DEAR ANN LANDERS: I hope I'm not too late to reply to those women who were feeling sorry for themselves because their husband watched so much football on TV. I fought that battle and lost. I tried joining him but I was bored stiff. I'm no good at faking it, so I decided to USE that time to do something that gave me satisfaction. Here's what I did: thawed out long enough and it's cold. Once in a while she burns it and blames the stove. I wish I could invite a friend to our house for dinner once in a while to pay him back. We have a neat family and I'd like to show them off, but I'm ashamed of Mom's cooking. Any suggestions? -Plain Facts In Plain-field DEAR PLAIN: If you want to invite a friend for dinner, go ahead and do it. I cam promise you the food won't matter. It's the hospitality that counts. There are some nifty frozen and canned foods around these days and if your mom! will just follow the directions on the package and make sure her stove is in good working condition, she can't go wrong. I think. for "sentimental reasons." To be honest, the ring is so big I'm afraid someone will hit me on the head for it. Furthermore I would be self-conscious wearing a stone that size. Any advice? - N.Y.Q. Mark DEAR N.Y.: Accept the ring graciously. Tell your mother-in-law you appreciate the lovely and generous thought but you aren't quite ready to wear such an im-presive stone so, if she doesn't mind, you'd like to accept it and put it in the vault for a while. You might be glad in a few years that you didn't say no. If they would add just a few more items to the menu it would help us diabetics enjoy going out. Instead we find it so difficult and embarrassing that w'e'd rather stay at home. - Concerned Diabetic DEAR CONCERNED: It's a pleasure to pass along your sound advice. At the same time I'd like to suggest some special consideration for those who are on salt-free diets, as well. that will let people know I don't care for the question? I want to get the point across in a humorous way. I don't like to offend people. Thanks, Ann. - private Person DEAR PERSON: The next time someone asks "Is your wife pregnant yet?" reply, "I don't know. I liaven't been home since 8:00 this morning. Anything is possible." That'll clear their sinuses. answered all the letters I had been putting off, cleaned drawers and cupboards, caught up on my mending, and best of all, I cooked and baked a freezer full of things that will come in handy for the next several months. You've said it so often, Ann, "When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade." I took your advice and I'm - Happier Now DEAR HAPPIER: Have a drink on me.

The quints, from left, Amy and Ted background; and Abigail, Gordon and Sara in foreground, recently celebrated third birthday. in this in the their By GLENNTS ZILM OTTAWA (CP) The National Council of Women (NCW) asked cabinet this week for a permanent federal council to look into the status of women, but it settled for a national advisory committee which will report to Labor Minister John Munro. The minister and 16 cabinet colleagues proposed the committee at a two-hour meeting with representatives of NCW, a national organization representing about 75,000 women through provincial councils and member women's clubs. New president Mrs. John Hnatyshyn of Saskatoon said in an interview later: "We had hoped for something a little more grandiose, I must say, but we are very pleased that the minister is considering an advisory council." The suggestion, major one of 14 discussed with Prime Minister Trudeau and his ministers, called for a permanent council to advise on matters pertaining to women and report on progress to improve their status. It alo would undertake research, establish programs to correct attitudes and prejudices adversely affecting women, propose legislation and policies and consult organizations concerned about problems of women. WOULD BE QUICKER Mr. Munro said the national advisory committee would do these things and he told reporters later that setting up an advisory committee could be done much more quickly than setting up a council, which would need approval of Parliament. The minister said the committee could be established for a year or two. If it did not prove satisfactory, the whole issue could be reconsidered. He envisioned a committee of about 20 to 30 members, including representatives from womens organizations and business, professional women and housewives. "I hope it can tie operative in a month or six week". Mrs. Hnatyshyn said she was pleased with the reception given the whole brief, which stressed conditions that discriminate against women but also was concerned with ecology, consumer education and the problems of youth. Another major area con- cerned occupational training programs and the NCW brief recommended that the federal programs should be reaching more women. Manpower Minister Robert Andras said his department is planning to expand advertising programs and is doing research into the kinds of women in the program, those still in need of the program and how they can be reached most effectively. Two other main recommendations concerned day care. The brief urged the government to amend the National Housing Act to allow loans for construction, purchase and renovation of buildings for day care centres and to permit the inclusion of space for them in housing developments.

"The fur industry is elated that so many young people are buying furs for the first time," says Henry Block, president of QMB Furs, Inc. "There are more of them than I can ever remember." Like other furriers, Block reports a 20- to 25-per-cent increase in business during the winter season.

The course will be held on six consecutive Sundays at 8 p.m. in the Education Centre at the Separate School Bldg., 534 18 St. S. Cost is $5 per couple. The young have bought short furs this year, particularly fox chubbies and battle jackets in furs such as raccoon paw and rabbit. With a new sporty style-ing, the jackets go well over ever-popular pants and are often sold at prices in the $50 to $500 range. "A lot of young women want a fur jacket that doesn't remind them of their mothers," says Constantino Christie, co-owner of Christie Bros. At Alexanders department store in New York, leather-trimmed short rabbit jackets have been selling well since Christmas at $49. So have $185 fox paw styles and mink baseball jackets at $299. At Macy's Furtique, a special section for the new furs, rabbit chubbies start at $80 and other furs go up to $250. Fur jackets in junior sizes run $100 to $225. Fox chubbies and pieced mink and leather jackets are selling well at the store. Many companies reported stocking winter lines with 30 to 35 per cent short furs, a big jump over the previous season. "Mostly we watched the kids on the street," says Harry Greenberg, president of Barlan Furs, Inc. Their fox chubby, at $225, has been a best-seller. The increased demand for long-haired furs such as fox, raccoon and lynx has sent prices up- considerably. At Christie Bros., fox jackets which sold at $800 to $1,200 will sell at $1,100 to $1,600. However, furriers remain optimistic about the coming season. "Today, the jacket's coming so strong, we believe that by spring and next fall, about 50 per cent of business will come from jackets," says Christie.
